Dieting For Lean Muscle Mass
Q. Why do you like your athletes to stay lean while trying to bulk up? Doesn’t it take twice as long with little result?
A. What point is there in putting on excess body fat while trying to put on muscle mass? Body fat is nonfunctional body weight that will need to be dieted off. This makes additional work for you when you want to lean out. Poor quality choice of food does not allow you to put on lean tissue—high quality food does. It doesn’t make sense to see the scale go up if the only weight you are gaining is fat.
