I just began an exercise and weight training program and I am gaining weight? Shouldn’t I be losing weight?
0 vote(s)It is possible for one to gain weight without getting fatter, depending on the frequency, intensity, and type of training program you’re using. If you are gaining muscle faster than you are losing fat, you will gain weight in a good way because what you are actually getting is lean body mass which in the long run can help you burn more calories. You will look bigger and you’ll become heavier because muscles build under the fat but it doesn’t mean you’ve gained fat. To test, have your percent body fat measured so you’ll know for sure where you can attribute the extra weight.Gaining muscle and losing fat is not something that can happen at the same time. Although it is possible, losing fat while building muscle can only happen if you use performance enhancing drugs such as steroids and growth hormones.
