I hope you folks can put up with more questions from a novice.
It seems to be the consensus that weight lifting will result in muscle gain and weight loss. What I'm wondering is if the muscle gain and the weight loss happen in the same part of the body that's being exercised. For example, if the calves are fatty and a person does exercises for the lower legs, is the fat in the calves replaced by muscle? Or does weight lifting and muscle gain just contribute to overall loss of fat?
Replies much appreciated.
