Bodybuilding Questions - Build Muscle With Fast
I'm thin, and I've always had a fast metabolism. But I'm very
out of shape. I'd like to get more toned but all the advice online
says to exercise and eat less. I don't think I should eat less because
I am already borderline "underweight". If I do weight
training, will I get more toned or do I need to be making both diet
and exercise changes too? Right now I don't do anything.
Here are some tips to help you:
1. Don't eat less. Actually eat more clean, nutritious foods.
By eating less, you will starve your body which will start feeding
on muscle to use for fuel. This is the last thing you want!
2. Workout with weights more. Build lean muscle mass to
burn fat. Adding 1 pound of muscle will burn an extra 50-70 calories
per day. Building muscle is one of the keys to getting lean. Weight
training will also give you that toned look you're going for.
3. Add cardio if needed. After 2-3 months of weight lifting,
see how your body is responding. If you still need to drop more
fat, add 4-5 cardio sessions to your plan every week. This will
burn off a little excess calories and body fat.
