    Question Where do you store your fat?

    I find it fascinating how everyone seems to store their body fat in different places. If you look at my before pics, I was skinny-fat at 6'1" and 169lb. I had a bloated-looking belly (although the pics were taken in the morning with an empty stomach) and love handles.

    I've never stored fat above my sternum - which means I can simultaneously have a gut, love handles, skinny arms, visible ribs and solid pecs (my chest responds well to exercise too).

    Now at around 14% BF (154lb) the love handles are almost gone, but I still have virtually no ab definition, even while flexing with good lighting. I can feel my 6-pack under there, but there's still a bit too much fat in the way.

    Where do you store fat?

    Squat: 85lb 3x8
    Deadlift: 105lb 3x8

    For me it was mainly the stomach and handles, after I lost the weight it was still the stomach and handles with loose skin too, and its still there during my bulk although not as loose, I am pretty lean elsewhere so hoping my next cut will remove a substantial amount of it.

    For me, almost all of my body fat is stored on my ass and belly. When I bulk, or my diet goes to ****, my abs are always the first casualty.

    There seems to be a black hole in my stomach, where all fat is sent to another dimension.

    Dude no. I have a faint visibility of abs, top 4. I have tons of lower belly fat. I'm finishing off my bulk where I averaged around 3lbs a month, it was hard to stick to 2. So on my next cut I might see them, although they are not a priority for me.

    DONT GIVE UP !!

    Tips to reduce belly fat is probably one of the most popular Google searches and why not, the increased fat content around the waistline is a big deal.

    I went from obese at 5'10" 275 pounds down to 169, achieving a normal BMI for the first time in my life. Even after all that progress I still have a gut and am a long way from visible abs. I just don't think it's in the cards for me genetically, man.

    For the winter I'm just focused on eating around maintenance and getting as strong as possible. I'm planning another aggressive cut starting in March, so we'll see what I'm able to do with some more muscle packed on my frame first.

    For me it's mostly the lower abdomen, and the rest is face and thighs. That's how I gain / store fat.

    But when I was obese, the fat was absolutely everywhere.

    It's amazing, isn't it, how much fat loss it takes to see a six-pack. I'm also 5'10" and three years ago I dieted down from 210 to 160 - the lowest since I was 21. Even at that weight I could only barely see *something* under there. I think 155 might have done it, but it might have taken 152 or 153. People who hadn't seen me in months were asking if I was ok because I was so thin; they thought I had cancer or something. To get your abs to show without looking like a concentration camp survivor, I think, would take a slow process of losing, then bulking, losing, then bulking, in order to gradually gain muscle while getting the abs to show to keep from looking like a skeleton when you arrive.

    For real now, I suppose I carry mine in the normal spots, the upper arm, the thighs, the torso. I think I especially carry it in my butt and hip-bone area.

    That's the approach I'm taking now. I'm spending the winter months eating intuitively and not tracking calories and just focusing on consistently putting more weight on the bar and getting as strong as I can until March. At that point I'll do another aggressive cut.

    Most of my fat seems to store in the lower waist and lower back, which gives little love handles LOL

    I'm all for getting very strong and staying reasonably lean, so if we can simply keep our waistline at half our height, maybe slightly less, which puts most men at around 12-14%. From there, choose a strength sport you enjoy and remember to do direct ab and lower back work 2-3 times a week and enjoy being happy, healthy, and stronger than spit. I suggest this.

    Unless you're exceptionally short or tall, so let's say above 5'5" and less than 6', going for the 100/200/300/400/500 standards would be excellent and would defo give a man the "I look like I lift" look. For those who don't know, the 12345hundred standard is that in order to have a balanced physique being able to hit these five lifts congruently, as in being strong for all 5 not just a couple of the lifts, which are to do a weighted chin-up with 100lbs. on you, an OHP in the 200s, bench press 300, squat 400, and deadlift 500. You could do the equivalent in a given rep range, say for example do 280 bench for 5 or squat 375 for 5 etc.; you don't have to actually the singles to get the balanced physique but still.

    This deviates from the point though. I store my dietary fat in my pantry along with the rest of my comestibles.

    I store fat in my cells. Extracting it is the hard part

    When I was fatter, I'd say the fat was distributed relatively evenly all over my body. I'd say maybe the biggest fat storage back then was the visceral fat in my belly. Now that I am leaner, the biggest problem spots are the side chest/armpit fat, inner thighs and the lower waist area.

    My visceral belly fat was the first to go when I went from 169lb to 154lb - waist measurement went down, but surface fat was/is still there.
