It's that time of week again – the day when I give you a sneak peek at practical, quick and dirty fitness tips from this week's Get-Fit Guy article.
See, each week, over at the Quick & Dirty Tips Network, I produce a free, easy-to-read article, accompanied by a short 5-10 minute audio version of that article. Everything there is focused on the latest fitness research, exercise news, and quick and highly practical muscle gain, fat loss and physical performance tips. It’s called “The Get-Fit Guy’s Quick & Dirty Tips To Slim Down & Shape Up”.
Here's your sneak peek from this week's article, “Should You Lose Fat and Build Muscle At The Same Time?”
“…Back when I was a bodybuilder, it was common knowledge that one of the best ways to get a nice body – especially if the goal was the ultimate combination of lean muscle mass and low body fat – was to do a “bulking” phase of muscle gain, followed by a “stripping” or “cutting” phase of fat loss leading up to the show (in which one basically poses on stage in scant clothing while performing a highly entertaining “flex-off” against fellow competitors).
But new exercise science research suggests that my approach (and the approach of many other professional fitness enthusiasts and workout “gurus”) could be flawed when it comes to building muscle and losing fat. In this episode, you’re about to discover exactly what that new research says, and get practical tips based on this new science that will help you build muscle and lose fat, whether you’re pursuing bodybuilder-esque bulk or just want to get a lean body.”
