View Full Version : Cardio + weight training = ?

Hello all.
I've recently been going on a reading spree and printing a bunch of WBB articles, and after reading "how to outsmart your fat cells" part 1 & 2, and "Want to get big?" (Not sure about the title, the one that imforms you to eat more to be bigger). It didn't add up to me, If I want to get big, why would I eat more just to burn it off?

Because I want to get rid of my small gut, and I don't want to stay the same size, do I have to lose the weight before I bulk up?

if you eat more of the right kind of food then you should be mostly gaining lean muscles and some fat. A growing body also needs more food, otherwise their wouldnt be enough nutrients to support the extra muscle. if you eat just about anything then you are most likely going to gain more fat, which you would have to work off.

Also: What is this thing they call resistance training?

Re Read the articles.

For the most part, getting leaner and getting bigger don't happen at the same time.

Resistance training = training with weights (resistance)
