I am aware that this is something that is extremely hard to achieve: Gaining muscle while losing body fat, at least if you have already strength trained for some time and do not come from a totally sedentary lifestyle. I wonder why the model I am going to describe is flawed (and it is, otherwhise it would be easy). Imagine your calorie intake is balanced (I will talk about calories to simplify things) and you lift heavy. This causes those injuries to the muscles which promote muscle growth. The body needs some calories to repair that "damage" and lets a muscle grow that way. I fyou didn`t change your calorie intake it seems logical to me that those calories that are used to repair the muscle are "missing" which makes you loose fat. Obviously, it isn`t that easy...Can someone explain why my model doesn`t work?
No announcement yet.
Why is "gaining muscle while losing fat" the holy grail?
