Got in a fight last night with my friend's aunt, well not a fight, more of a debate. She's in her mid-20's or so and was talking to someone about something and I decided to chime in. She was saying that if you inhale on the concentric part of the lift and exhale on the eccentric that builds muscle. If you exhale on the concentric part of the lift and inhale on the eccentric part, that burns fat. I probably debated with her for 20 minutes. I think this is complete bullshit. I then decided to add in that without a lower calorie diet, it doesn't matter what the f*ck you do...diet is the main key, which it is. She's like, diet doesn't matter in this case, it's the breathing that matters. What the f*ck...Ok, so if I breathe differently I will all of a sudden go from a muscle building regimine to a fat burning one? ...Bah! I was so frustrated by this point...So in summary, she was basically saying that two people with the same diet, no matter how shitty or how healthy, the person who inhales on the concentric part of the lift and exhales on the eccentric will be geared towards gaining muscle, as opposed to the person who exhales on the concentric part of the lift and inhales on the eccentric part they will burn fat....Pfftt...
Thoughts? Is she the stupidest person I've ever met in my life, or am I just being stupid...I don't think I'm wrong though, but maybe I am.
She's the stupidest person you've ever met in your life.
Breathing won't make one rat's difference in the metabolism involved.
Didn't think so. Thanks :D
By the way, your friend's aunt is in her mid 20s? How old is your friend?
For once me and Powerman agree on this..... She is just wacko and needs to keep listening to the hippy who comes in and gives work out advice to the gym-rats...
--Next time tell her if she holds her breath forever, she will lose as much body fat as she wants.
ask if she does a canadance of 1 sec up 1 sec down she breaths quickly short breaths.
but if you do 5 secs up and 5 secs down she takes long big breaths?
its up to you, if you ask her in a sarcastic tone or not.
is she its does not matter giver her a extreme of 10-15 sec concentric negative motion. I am not sure i could breath in for 15 secs escpecially if squating.
I am at a point now where I can't talk to anybody about fitness or nutrition
this is why I use this site
the people here are serious about learning and worth talking to
it's tempting to goin in on those conversations but it truly is pointless
