Sacroplasmic Hypertrophy ?

Descriptions of sacroplasmic hypertrophy lead me to believe that it is undesirable for someone only interested in maximal strength gains.

It seems that this type of hypertrophy is due to an increase of fluid in the muscle instead of an actual increase in muscle tissue.

Does this mean this type of hypertrophy will make big soft muscles? Can you tell the difference in a muscle that has been built this way verus one built by low reps?

Don’t tell Ed Coan that.
