Brad Pitt – Most Famous Ectomorph Ever? “Fight Club Body”
You hear it ALL THE TIME. I even mentioned it earlier in this article.
“I’m just trying to get a little buff. Get that fight club look. Ya know?”
As a bodybuilder, it is INCREDIBLY frustrating to hear that. Brad Pitt’s fight club look isn’t the ‘end-all’ look everybody says it is.
But, there is no doubt that people think Brad Pitt’s fight club look is amazing.
Don’t know what I’m talking about? Take a look:
Alright, to be honest- it’s not bad. And it’s incredibly attainable.
But that’s beside the point.
Brad Pitt is an American legend- he is incredibly famous and awesome.
His entire career is centered around his incredibly serious look that every woman finds attractive. (And many men too)
Name an important movie and he’s probably starring in it. 12 Years a Slave? Yup.
Fight Club? Even the movie recreating some of America’s oldest literature, ‘The Curious Case of Benjamin Button‘.
Not only does he love history and know a lot about it- but he’s an incredibly good actor. His ectomorph body type does not limit him in his endeavors.
If Brad Pitt is one of the most famous and attractive ectomorph bodybuilders- you can be too!
Sylvester Stallone is just irrefutably ripped. Think you don’t know this guy? You do.
Ever watch the movie, Rocky? Arguably one of the most-watched movies in American history? Or Rambo, which he just produced another one a few months ago as I write this.
Frick- I’m straight and engaged (not for long) but this guy looks incredible! He is like literally the definition of ‘manly’. Everything about him, the serious look, the shredded jaw, the muscle, and more.
Sylvester Stallone’s Life Was Horrible Growing Up
Sylvester stallone just had a horrible life. In fact, when he was delivered part of his lip, tougne, and chin were permanently paralyzed by the doctor through an incident.
Here’s an excellent video going really in-depth about it all:
But, he kept pushing.
Sylvester Stallone wasn’t gifted with anything incredible. The truth is- he had a horrible chance at succeeding in life, but he never gave up. He kept trying.
That’s why he’s on this famous ectomorphs list.

It’s no surprise bruce lee is on this list! Bruce Lee is known worldwide as this crazy martial arts guy that had the discipline Navy Seals were jealous of.
Even now, I have a few of his quotes on my Instagram because he is so motivational.
If you’ve read my blog for a little- you’ll know I do quite a bit of martial arts myself. Here’s a quote relating to martial arts, but realistically life, that I think is very interesting.
I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.Bruce Lee
So what is he saying? He’s saying he’s not worried about someone that just does a bunch of things randomly albeit often, he’s scared of facing someone that has incredible mastery in a specific thing.
So for instance. He is not scared of a lawyer that is also a doctor, and also a police officer, and also a teacher, and also a gardener, and also a farmer. But, he is scared of a lawyer that has been doing it since he was 5 and has done nothing else.
Bruce Lee is pointing out the fact when you do something so much for so long, you iron out all of your weaknesses and know the tiniest things that other people don’t. This makes you incredibly strong in that mastery.
How Can I Use Bruce Lee’s Quote?
Well, find something in life you love, and become a true ‘master’ of it.
If you want to become a master at gardening, don’t waste your time working on cars. Focus more on growing your garden knowledge and gardening.
Over time you may learn tiny things amateur farmers may not know. Maybe you learn it’s better to pull the weeds off when the plant is fully grown because it’s less of a risk. Maybe you learn exactly how to stop a certain pest from eating your crop.
These are things an amateur farmer wouldn’t know. The same thing applies to even this website. One of my newer writers, Yousif, won’t know everything I do because I focus so much on this.
Instead of putting my spread everywhere and focusing on a billion things, I master the website and it pays off. I get awesome fans who read my content and I help the world.
Instead, I could’ve flopped this by trying to learn 50,000 different things at once.
Master one thing and use that to be a master that’s intimidating.
Ectomorphs Can Use This Quote
So, for the ectomorphs. Get out there and master your body type.
Don’t refute it or hate it, just understand it. Learn your weaknesses, and play around them. Find out your strengths, and use them to your advantage.
Spend a ton of time learning what your body type can do for you, and what it can’t. Then you’ll be more mastered than the billions of others that have your body type, and soon, you will be rewarded.
Lance Armstrong is #1 on this famous ectomorphs list because let’s put it bluntly, he is one of the best athletes our nation has EVER seen.
Let’s look at the facts. Lance is one of the best cyclists in the world’s history. Lance Armstrong won 7 Tour de France competitions in a ROW.
And those aren’t easy, at all. He did all of this being an ectomorph.
So he’s won over 7 Tour de France competitions. Each tour de France is 2,200 miles long. Yep. So, just competitively and not recreationally speaking, Lance Armstrong has biked well over 15,400 miles.
That’s more miles than I put on my car in a year. Most Americans barely put on 10,000 miles a year to their cars, and to think this guy has biked more than that just competitively?
Lance Armstrong is incredibly gifted as an athlete and is incredibly motivational as well.
If you’re that ectomorph reading this wondering about how athletic and competitive you can be- look no further. This guy is it. If he can do it- YOU can.
