For a while now, I have had a bit of a gut. I am 6’1’’ and 225 pounds and have been bulking for a while. I train for powerlifting and strongman. What’s weird is, my gut is hard, and I seem to have very little subcutaneous fat as I can still see my abs a bit.
I have notice that how big my gut is fluctuates throughout the day, being least noticeable in the morning and most noticeable at night. I have been wondering if this might be visceral body fat or possibly abdominal distension.
I read this article here:
The writer (presumably a doctor) mentions how he noticed that alot of powerlifters develop large guts because of large food intake before bed time and before heavy squatting, which can lead to the development of a powerlifters gut.
Anyone have any ideas as to what could be causing this? Have any of you successfully used transverse abdominus exercises to fix this?
