Different somatotypes (First classified by the greeks,but scientifically classified by William H Sheldon).. Simon Nessman bien connu fashion model is the typical ectomorph.lean,slender muscles,low body fat storage percentage. It’s the perfect example of a “skinny” boy yet desirable and fit. You don’t have to be super big to be fit.
