The difference between the two types of fat is simple if we take the example of the abdomen :
- Between the skin and abs : subcutaneous fat, which hides very well abs.
- Behind the abs, around internal organs : visceral fat, which does not cover all the abs.
It has often been said everywhere in the room, again, everywhere I finally fell abs, I was super dry because my abs were very apparent, while I 'm complaining to fertilize small little inside, that nobody understands, taking me for a pathological obsession dry. Excluding the truth is that if the pictures I posted, I actually had the skin stuck to the abs, so absolutely no subcutaneous fat, inside is another story.
You may very well have a huge flop, but hard to the touch surface and with very apparent abs, so do not jump to conclusions on the fat with the appearance of abs. Moreover it is also possible to constantly invisible abs despite a terrible dry, if still the subcutaneous fat on the stomach, even with absolutely no visceral fat and thus a super low fat!
So how do you know if you have visceral fat ?
A reliable indicator of visceral fat is the measure waist belly released. Conversely it can also be seen when you tighten your abs, and then they become very apparent, love handles emerge as you push the contractor in visceral fat or there is less contracted, so the sides.
Often ectos in my style take almost entirely visceral fat, or almost never take the subcutaneous. This is the cause of the skinny look with small container, no subcutaneous fat, but large stock of visceral fat. Refer to a ecto to eat like a pig to grow is a big mistake : everything will get bigger his belly and that's all.
The mesentery them, tend to do the opposite, ie to fertilize evenly throughout the body, and little in the belly as visceral form. The bulking allows a meso seem more hefty without changing its proportions, that's all benef for the apparent mass. We recognize such people " plump ", which appear well fed and proportioned without a flop.
In general the back, in addition to fertilize easily across the bottom, both in visceral than subcutaneous. So it seem more solid, but at the same time more belly too. We often recognize this type in a lot of power lifters and strongmen heavies playing heavily on carbohydrates and calories for energy ceiling, in addition to a frame of bull.
