When to Gain Muscle? (Part 1) :

When to Gain Muscle? (Part 1)
With all the news and media shoving the idea of weight loss down our throats it is almost second nature to think that we should be focusing on losing weight. It makes sense when looking at the statistics of how overweight problems are becoming more frequent around the world. But there are still numerous people that will benefit more from a weight gaining program rather than a weight loss program. There is a point where a shift in focus to muscle gain is almost mandatory.

This may make a few people mad, but changing focus at the right point will help with overall body composition and the increased muscle mass will continue to help rid body fat. I'm not talking about blindly just eating more and increasing the amount of body fat, no this is more about a structured approach. If you're like me then you will have multiple goals that you're trying to reach. This is not a mistake and can be successful as long as the primary goal is the one on which we focus. Many people start out on a fitness and health program with the idea of losing weight, reducing body fat, gaining muscle mass, and increasing overall fitness.

All of these goals can be achieved, but there is always a primary goal that will take precedence at any point in time. When I've been off my program for a while, then my first goal is always to get my fitness level back to where I want it to be. Then I start focusing on losing fat or gaining muscle depending on my condition. So what point is the right point where we should shift focus from losing weight to gaining muscle?
