How To Lose Fat AND Gain Muscle At The Same Time…

By Rob Poulos...

I’m often asked by FBF readers whether or not you can really lose fat and gain muscle at the same time…

…and there are a LOT of differing opinions on this, so let’s go ahead and get some answers based on my experience and the experience of hundreds of others… sound good?

Whether or not you can burn fat and build muscle simultaneously has a lot to do with who you are and more specifically, WHERE you are.

Let me explain…

…depending on your experience with resistance training and fat loss, and your current levels of both, you may or may not be able to burn fat and build muscle at the same time. Take me, for example…

…I’ve achieved single digit levels of body fat at times and maintain about 12-15% year round. I also have a great deal of experience with proper resistance training and have built a good majority of strength and muscle that my body is naturally capable of.

So at this point, in my current condition, I would have a very difficult time gaining much muscle and losing fat at the same time because there is much less fat to lose and much less muscle to gain!

On the flip side of that coin is the average person out there who is unhappy with their body…

…they’re overweight or maybe even obese and probably have little to 0 experience with proper resistance training.

I say proper because most who use resistance training are making a laundry list of mistakes and creating a very ineffective stimulus. These people certainly WILL gain muscle and strength, and lose substantial fat simultaneously. There is a lot of fat to lose and a lot of muscle to gain!

(for a quick example of a simplified FBF workout, check out my 5 minute FBF fat blaster here)

Sure, they could gain more muscle if they maintained a caloric surplus (creating a better environment in the body for muscle growth), but that’s not what it’s about for most people.

I think you’ll agree that most folks want a lean, strong, and healthy body. One that is fit and trim, accentuated by lean shapely and strong muscle.

It’s really all about your genetic potential for fat loss and muscle gain and how far along you are on that path. The closer you get to your top condition, the harder it will be to do both at the same time.

Now, here’s something else I’ve found to be very interesting with some of my FBF students…

even those that had experience with regular resistance training have lost fat and gained muscle together with the FBF program.

How can this be true?

Simple… the unique way the resistance training is applied in the FBF workouts forces the body to adapt like nothing they’ve ever experienced. In effect, they were rank beginners for the type of resistance training we use!

The really good news here is that in the time between beginning the Fat Burning Furnace system and approaching your top genetic condition, you most certainly can gain muscle and lose fat simultaneously.

And it doesn’t take years to achieve your top condition… it can be done in months in many cases with properly applied techniques.

And as I’ve said countless times before, those techniques can require just 15-25 minutes, 2-3 days each week, all while enjoying a diet rich in delicious and nutrient rich whole foods…

So that settles it… get out there and hit those FBF workouts hard and fuel your furnace with the proper foods and you’ll be giving yourself your best chance to drop the flab and get stronger faster!

    of course it’s possible to lose fat and gain muscle at the same time. i bicycle, run and eat right. la voila! less fat, less weight, more muscle. i’m 5’2′, 105 pounds and 10% body fat. not bad for a 45 year old woman.

    of course it’s hard work. just remember you’re doing it for yourself and you’ll love it!
