I have found that position hard to swallow. Gaining muscle and losing fat are very different goals and it just seems logical that using the same program to achieve both is a very inefficient way to do it. Not necessarily impossible, but inefficient. Quite frankly, if I am going to work out till I feel like I am going to puke (see yesterdays post) I want it to be the most efficient program possible!LOL
Well, after reading Alwyn Cosgrove's blog today I felt better. Specifically this snippet:
(BTW- I am NOT a believer in the notion that the only difference between a fat loss program and a hypertrophy program is diet).
For example - the New Rules of Lifting for Women is an overall "general fitness" book for women where we tried to explode some myths as regarding women and weight training.
But it's not a sports conditioning book - nor is it a fat loss program or a pure strength program. Although it will work reasonably well for these - it's definitely not designed purely for any of those goals.
I'd write a different program if the goal were primarily fat loss
Enter...NROL Fat Loss Program...
