Muscle and weight loss really can go hand in hand as the more muscle you have the more fat you burn to maintain the muscle this sounded like a reasonable theory and I put the magazine back on the rack to have a think about this information. For some time I had been thinking about muscle and weight loss and what I could do to get back into shape again I have written this article to let you know what was the breaking point for me to start to do something about my weight and to work on the muscles that had now gone to flab. The following steps are how I gained control of my life again.
I knew over the years that I had gained quiet a bit of weight and became sedentary and literally gave in to middle age life and had a huge gut which is something that I had never had before and didnt like at all. The clothes that used to fit me strained when I tried to do the buttons up. I felt if I sit down I was sure one of the buttons on the shirt would pop taking someones eye out!
I think the turning point was when I was a few of my mates and they were joking saying what happened to the six-pack abs you used to have you now have a slab! Although we all laughed about this but it really got me thinking about how I really hate the way that I now look and feel and tomorrow I will do something about it.
I was quite over weight and was quite depressed due to extra body fat, later I decided to try gaining muscle and weight loss. I faced various issues due to my weight, I was not completely socially accepted and always found myself among people who I did not prefer being with. This scenario compelled me to going gym and start working out.
The instructor of my gym told me that according to my skin fold test and BMI measurements I was overweight and classed as obese over weight or was very high and to build proper body muscles, I have to first decrease my weight. He informed me about various weight training exercises and asked me to do these exercises in an aggressive manner. I lost weight but after I failed to build muscles. Then he changed my exercise routine and that routine was even harsher than the previous one. Even after sticking to that routine for days, I failed to build muscles.
