I've started doing intervals. Like one min. of heavy cardio..then so many reps of squats(or whatever) with weights...etc..etc...would this make me gain weight yet stay slim?

two things: 1. muscle is heavier than fat and 2. you may have reached a temporary plateau.

Well, I'm still fitting into my clothes normally. Even the skinny jeans =) I'm gonna go with me having more muscles!! Woot!

Best Answer

Not only will the development of muscle make one weigh more without necessarily gaining size, muscle burns more calories than fat! So you are ahead in the long run by approaching things this way.

Best Answer

Thanks! Yay! I know this new routine is tough..but I love it! =)

Muscle is heavier than fat, maybe you're just developing more muscles? If that is the case high five! Good on ya.

Best Answer

Yay! Woot!

YES! ...and congratulations on your accomplishments :) <br />
Muscle weighs MORE than fat...<br />
It's possible to gain lean muscle mass that (by the scales ) indicates you weigh MORE, yet you've LOST the bulky FAT by conversion to lean muscle...and still fit into your wardrobe.<br />

Best Answer

Yes, but I personally find that it's harder for me to go back to that good routine. I actually have to get a trainer to pretty much drill sarge me

Best Answer

I'm too poor for that. For now, I gotta motivate myself.

Best Answer

LOL. Sorry. Go Workoutgurl, you can do it!

Best Answer

Of course we'd all like a personal trainer, but you don't need one if you have enough motivation...wish I did! lol
