It is been proved that leaner physiques are more capable to build added muscle mass because of its low-fat percentage and enhanced insulin levels and leptin sensitivity.

280 pounds of the fat fellow will less likely to put on muscle than the 170 pounds leaner guy just because of his low-fat accumulation tendency which gives his body more freedom to pack on muscles instead of just storing fat. We not have seen anybody progressively packing on 5-10kg of muscle every year and in 5 years grown 200-300 pounds with lean 100pounds muscle mass if you commit you have seen this type of guy I can be sure he goes against biological cues or he just wear a body suit.

Being in a leaner phase gives you the freedom to experiment with your body. That’s why it is awesome.

Leaner means you will be more flexible to perform different functions and stability exercises which help you balance the weights.

Other leaner makes you vascular and melt your fat away.


The good thing is it’s not that inflexible if you go from high-fat to just normal. You need to work more often.

Some bodybuilder relies on Fat burners to reduce fat because of fat removing cycle takes time and to keep them ready for competitions they rely on additive supplements. Which also suggests that by relying on external means to increase fat mobilization and increase muscle-building rather than normal food will toxins your body means well-shaped six-pack abs are not the sign to be healthy you must be healthy inside out.

Don’t get me wrong I am just not happy with the ideas of fitness industry portraying fitness in 2018 what other’s do is their thing, not mine. I promote healthy living with great food, good weight training, and a healthy gut without medical glitches.
