    I think this is pear shaped, more like muffin topish.





    I've noticed your lower torso shape comes from the core exercises you do, here I remember doing no resistance ab and bicycle crunches.




    Then currently I've done more core intensive training, no resistance but exercises like benched body levers, by weaksauce version of cranks, etc. So my core became thicker, but I'm not mad



    Still a bit of pear-shapeness though :/
    Back at 210, lame :/

    negative, the vast majority of men are not pear shaped - and I would guess that has to do with hormones, but IDK for sure.

    False. Men have a tendency to be more apple-shaped, where as women have a [i]tendency[i] to be more pear shaped. But, like with any characteristic, there's a wide variance between extremes for both sexes.

    You were replying to a post suggesting his body shape results from genetics, rather than testosterone levels.

    I don't give a fuk what causes it, they answer is the same. its not common.

    Also, have a big ole serving of STFU:

    "In adult humans, muscle mass may change due to exercise, and fat distribution may change due to hormone fluctuations"

    Fat distribution

    "Estrogen causes fat to be stored in the buttocks, thighs, and hips in women.[17][18] When women reach menopause and the oestrogen produced by ovaries declines, fat migrates from their buttocks, hips and thighs to their waists;[19] later fat is stored in the belly.[20] Thus females generally have relatively narrow waists and large buttocks,[21] and this along with wide hips make for a wider hip section and a lower waist-hip ratio compared to men.

    Oestrogen increases fat storage in the body,[22] which results in more fat stored in the female body.[23] Body fat percentage recommendations are higher for females, as this nutrient serves as an energy reserve for pregnancy. Males have less subcutaneous fat in their faces due to the effects of testosterone;[24] testosterone also reduces fat by aiding fat metabolism. Males generally deposit fat around waists and abdomens (producing an "apple shape") due to the lack of estrogen."

    read above. fat distribution is heavily influenced by test and estrogen.

    ^^^yes, strong denial of other possibilities

    the point was that hormones play an important role in fat distribution, validating my initial point. you slow bro?

    Yes, the lady with the green is what I look like at the moment (embarrassing). I have very minimal fat on top but from the waist down it just starts to widen. Do I need to do something besides continuing to lose overall body fat?

    don't feel bad, studies have shown that if the majority of fat storage is below the waist, it puts you in a much lower heath risk category for things like heart disease.

    Also, despite what some of the other rather ill-informed posters ITT think, hormones do play a major role in fat distribution. An adult male storing fat like that could indicate an imbalance in estrogen/test. If I were you, I would have my test checked to be sure, or it could be genetic. In any case, you are correct, spot reduction isn't going to happen. Just keep losing body fat and your thunder thighs will go.

    thanks. is it true to say the thunder thighs will go if i keep losing body fat regardless of my test level?

    dude, i was pear-shaped when i was bigger - during that time i even checked my test (worked in a path lab, thought i might as well test everything) and it was high while e2 was low. lost weight/build muscle and now i'm a lot broader in the shoulders than wide at the waist or thighs. my build had a lot to do with the fact that i am (hahaha!) genuinely big boned, with a very large rib-cage and very big hips. it's crazy! it doesn't look out of proportion once you start stacking on the muscle though...
    currently stacking: white blood/purple wraath/kre-alk

    The kid in the linked thread below seems to have changed his overall proportions from big fat hips/small shoulders to looking well-proportioned. You can't really see his legs in the before pic to gauge if he was holding a lot of fat there, but his hips sure look like they did. Reminds me of the "Grimace" McDonald's character.

    I wouldn't have thought it possible. A lot of lost fat and a little muscle mass added in the right places => HUGE difference.

    There is always someone less fortunate, with real hunger, with real adversity, who made something of themselves. What is your excuse?

    I know this is a old topic.

    But its genetics.


    Fat distribution is genetics.

    It's called gamers butt.

    And I've seen quite the number of them in my life. Skinny upper body, very disproportional butt/thighs that store majority of their fat.

    Most likely genetic? Possibly other causes that accumulate long term? I have no idea, but I know that body type exists lol.

    Edit: Yea, did not see how old this topic was.
