Post Fitness Routine Meal?

Post by desire10 » 27 Apr 2011, 03:12

Sorry, I have another question unrelated to my other thread. I am not working out at the moment because I'm trying to lose a bit of stomach fat (you can't gain muscle and lose weight at the same time). I was wondering if a resistance speed training session would require an excess of calories in order to build power (consuming protein shakes etc...). Same with plyometrics, would you consider these two types of training as strength training?

Well first Im pretty sure you can lose fat and gain muscle at the same time... either way youll gain good weight, meaning muscle... Im not sure if they're considered strength training but definitely adding it to your regular weight training will definitely help... I think losing fat is all about intensity

Yes but muscle gain requires an excess in calories, while losing weight you need to eat less then your recommended in-take, so it's not logically possible, at least for decent results. That is why your either bulking or cutting when your weight lifting.

You are implementing some flawed logic here. Yes, some people will argue that you can't gain muscle and lose fat simultaneously. However, this is a highly debated topic. Furthermore, you are falsely attributing "working out" to simply building muscle and not burning fat. Really, it is your overall calorie intake that is the important part of the puzzle here. If you are working out and consume excess calories you will "bulk up" or gain muscle. If you are working out and consume a calorie deficiency, you will lose weight. In fact, coupling working out with a clean diet (never overeating), will catalyze weight loss and you will do so without compromising your current fitness levels.

As to you're original question, yes I would most likely consider both of those strength training if you are exercising with an intent to gain power. And yes, you would need to add additional calories to your intake.

just run dude, running burns a sh*t load of calories and makes your legs stronger. There you go.

running in the sense of 80% or so of your top speed won't make your legs stronger...

it won't make your legs stronger but it will condition them, which will obviously help you last 90 minutes more easily.

true but desire is talking about speed/resistance training.
