Build Muscle and Lose Weight (Part 1) :

Muscle is living tissue, unlike fat which is just stored energy. Just like any other living thing muscle requires calories to survive. Muscle uses calories just to stay on your body. So the more muscle you have the more calories you will use to keep it there.

When people want to lose weight they automatically turn to cardio exercise. This will help you lose weight but most people are not aware of the fact that much of the weight that they will lose will be muscle and not just fat. This is a mistake because the smaller the muscles, the fewer calories they will burn, and because of this weight loss results will begin to slow down and become more and more difficult. You will have to do more and more cardio to keep the results coming. This will leave you a body with little muscle tone which is not always attractive.

Many years ago weight training was considered to be a method of training used only by strongmen and bodybuilders. Many people would look at the large muscular bodies of these athletes and find them freakish and unattractive. Many people looked down on this type of training because they felt that having lots of muscle slowed you down, made you muscle bound, and made you look like some sort of freak.

Even today there are some people who think along the lines that weight training will make them too big and bulky. This is especially true where women are concerned. This type of thinking is laughable because to get to the level of professional bodybuilders is not easy. Nobody and I mean nobody is going to look like a bodybuilders after a few months of weight training.

To look like a bodybuilder you will have to have tremendous discipline, commitment, and motivation. On top of this it would take many years of training to get to that sort of level. Even that can only be achieved if you have near perfect genetics. So you can forget the myth that you may become too muscular, because it isn't going to happen. If by some miracle you find yourself piling on too much muscle, all you have to do is change the way you weight train.
