Learn How The Four Body Types Determines A Celebrity Body Type Like Andy Ruiz Jr
Celebrity Andy Ruiz Jr sporting his genetic scientific Body Type Two (BT2) shape physique/figure while posing for professional boxer photos and fighting. The fully developed vertebrae (posture) and muscles/muscle mass are debatable. He is showing obvious signs of regular fat (white fat/yellow fat/excess fat) and some skinny fat (cellulite, thin fat, loose skin, saggy skin, crepey skin, normal weight obesity) on his stomach and lower back, no less, indicating an underdeveloped lumbar vertebra or several and possibly a thoracic or two.
One pound of muscle burns six calories per day, but one pound of skinny fat/fat only burns two to three calories. Which directly affects metabolism (the more skinny fat and fat, the slower the metabolism). The mostly developed posture, muscles, and muscle mass across the majority of his BT2 is an advantage that Body Type Three (BT3) and Body Type Four (BT4) human bodies (male or female) generally lack.
Diet, exercise, lifestyle, metabolism, and BMI matter, but so do genes/genetics/DNA. As he continues to age, it will be interesting to see how well Andy Ruiz Jr successfully maintains his body shape physique/figure. Is he really a Body Type One (BT1)?

Inspired by his grandfather owning a boxing gym in Mexicali that was used by featherweight champion Jorge Páez, his nickname ‘Destroyer’ is due to his childhood tendencies to “…always destroying stuff.” As an amateur boxer, he had a record of 105–5 under Cuban trainer Fernando Ferrer. His wins include two Mexican National Junior Olympics gold medals and a title at the Ringside World Championships.
He made his professional debut at 19 years old at the Plaza de Toros in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico, winning the fight via a first-round knockout (KO) of Miguel Ramírez. After wins against no less than Ross Brantley (technical knockout/TKO), Juan Luis Lopez Alcaraz (unanimous decision), Luke Vaughn (KO), Miles Kelly (KO), Raymond Lopez (unanimous decision), Francisco Diaz (KO), Kelsey Arnold (KO), and Homero Fonseca (unanimous decision), he claimed the vacant World Boxing Organization (WBO) Inter-Continental heavyweight title with this win over undefeated 30-year-old American Joe Hanks (21-0, 14 KOs). As his star continued to successfully rise, his next big break came against Joseph Parker in New Zealand for the WBO heavyweight title (the former champion Tyson Fury vacated the title). although he lost by majority decision.
