The “Dad Bod” is a male body type that is described as “softly round.” The theory around the “Dad Bod” is that once a man has found a mate and had kids, he doesn’t need to worry about maintaining his physique.

- Ectomorphic: Thin, tall, fragile, lightly muscled, flat chested and delicate
- Mesomorphic: Hard, rugged, triangular, athletically built with well developed muscles
- Endomorphic: Round, usually short and soft with under-developed muscles and having difficulty losing weight
