Losing Fat And Building Muscle

The more fat you have to lose, the easier it is to lose it. On the other hand, the less muscle mass you have, the easier it is to build muscle. 

So if you are a beginner in both aspects, meaning you have a lot of fat to lose and a lot of muscle to gain, losing fat and building muscle at the same time is possible and easier for you.

Hypertrophy Rep Range

Muscles Turning Into Fat

Muscle cells and fat cells are completely different and one doesn’t turn into other. It’s like saying “your liver will turn into lungs”.

Lifting Weights And Bulking Up

This myth is for the ladies. There is no such thing as toning up muscles. Muscles don’t tone up. You either build muscle or you don’t.

Building Muscle

Skeletal muscle has a very low metabolic rate when at rest, at just 6 calories per pound. That's three times as much as fat, so building muscle definitely helps your daily fat-burn. But you might be better off building your brainpower: a pound of brain actually burns 109 calories a day.

You can't turn fat into muscle

Weight training helps build up the muscle tissue in and around any fat tissue. The best way to reduce fat tissue is to eat a healthy diet that incorporates vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins and healthy fats like those found in olive oil and fish.

Factors that affect muscle mass

  • Your calorie intake. Even if you eat a lot of protein, you won't build muscle if you don't eat enough calories daily.
  • Your sleep schedule. You w...

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
