Yes, someone can be “Skinny Fat”, you may of heard this term, but here it is in “layman’s” terms..
How the hell can someone be both “skinny” and “fat” at the same time? WTF is this?
Well, the “skinny” refers to having relatively low levels of lean muscle mass and the “fat” refers to having too much body fat.
And when you combine these things too little muscle and too much fat you get the “skinny fat” look. The less muscle you have, the more prone you are to look skinny fat at lower percentages of body fat. An extremely under muscled guy with low body fat levels can look skinny fat whereas a musclebound guy at the same level of body fat can look rather intimidating.
Now, if you’re a woman and are already squirming at the thought of gaining muscle and winding up “bulky,The truth is it’s very hard for women to build enough muscle to look bulky. It takes years of heavy lifting, intense and dedicated training and getting your nutrition right to gain enough size for this. So, an imbalance between muscle and fat levels is what causes the skinny fat look.
So start lifting “heavy” today, and be CONSISTENT. This is the key to reaching your goals, no matter what they are:-)
