Gaining weight is better than losing weight – always
Think about it this way – when you start a new workout program to lose “body fat” you are focused on a number like -5lbs, -10lbs,
“I want to lose -20lbs then I will be ok”
Try this instead, focus on how much stronger you are getting in the gym, look at the 5lbs weights you are lifting with your arms, You will look a lot better when you can lift 20lbs with those arms!!
It’s hard to get your body in shape if you don’t lift weights and do things to make the muscles work and shape up. Cardio alone (walking, jogging, biking) won’t get it done sufficiently as weights and cardio combined will
I believe strong is the new skinny and by gaining more strength lifting weights you will help burn more calories and lose the body fat which is whats really wanted, a lower overall BF%
