In the study of Lundy et al., [17] the mean endomorphy component was 2.5 [+ or -]0.6, while the mean mesomorphy component was 6.9 [+ or -]1.2 and the mean ectomorphy component was 0.9 [+ or -]0.5 in rugby players.
The present study has revealed the somatotypes 4.1-7.7-1.0 for Greco-Roman and 3.4-9.1-1.2 for Freestyle wrestlers, and a difference was found for only mesomorphy value between the styles (p<0.05).
Correlation between Mesomorphy rating and composite FMS score (r=-0.10, p=0.37).
6d) are also indicative of mesomorphy. Perforation plates are simple.
Mesomorphy was calculated using the formula (0.858 x breadth of humerus) + (0.601 x breadth of femur) + (0.188 x measurement of biceps) + (0.161 x measurement of flexed calf) - (0.131 x weight in kilograms) + 4.5.
However, media pressures were not confined to messages concerning mesomorphy; other features of men's appearance also were targeted.
Some readers may remember his somatotypes, with ratings on the three dimensions of ectomorphy, mesomorphy, and endomorphy.
It also differs in that it focuses on (apparent) athletic constitution as such, rather than on a typology of constitutional traits (mesomorphy, endomorphy, ectomorphy, see Glueck and Glueck 1950: 183-97).
In the somatotype components, significant differences were observed in the endomorphy component and similar values were found in the mesomorphy and ectomorphy components.

Additional calculated measures included: endomorphy (Endo), mesomorphy (Meso), and ectomorphy (Ecto) ratings, biacromialD/bi-iliacD ratio, wristD/ankleD ratio, elbowD /kneeD ratio, bicepsC/thighC ratio, and forearmC/calfC ratio.
