Celebrity Michael Phelps displays his Body Type One (BT1) physique/shape during professional competitive swimming meets. The fully developed vertebrae, posture, and muscles/muscle mass are clearly obvious. He is showing no signs of skinny fat (cellulite, thin fat, loose skin, saggy skin, crepey skin, normal weight obesity) anywhere on his body.
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. Having a strong metabolism because of all that muscle and muscle mass, no less, is an advantage that a fully developed BT1 offers. Including aging gracefully.
Diet, exercise, lifestyle, metabolism, and BMI matter. But so do genes/genetics/DNA. It will be interesting to see as he continues to age how well Michael Phelps successfully maintains his muscular body shape physique.

In terms of his entire international swimming career, he has won 82 medals in major international long course competitions including 65 gold, 14 silver, and three bronze. Over the years, the physical requirements of his intense competitive swimming demands further assisted with increasing his metabolic rate thus encouraging the burning of more calories.
