How quickly can I build lean muscle mass?
I answer all these questions and more in this recorded Facebook Live!
1.) Three to five lbs lost per week is the maximum amount of weight you should lose per week! In the beginning of a weight loss, health, or fitness journey, it is common for weight loss results to be more significant. I have clients who have lost 10 lbs their first week. But these clients were of a heavier stature and had A LOT to lose, released a lot of water weight, and cleansed a lot of gunk from their gut! If you go 2 consecutive weeks without a change in weight, measurements, progress pictures, you may be approaching a plateau and have to adjust certain variables of your meal plan or training regimen.
2.) The type of workout you’re doing DOES make a difference in how much weight you lose and how quickly you lose it! HIIT Cardio, Steady State Cardio, Resistance Training… every individual has a body with different needs!
3.) Average lean muscle mass that can be built per month depends on how long your have been engaging in resistance training! For a beginner, the max about of quality lean muscle mass you can build per month is about 1 to 1.5 lbs. For someone who has been incorporating resistance training for 4+ years, such as bodybuilders and athletes, maximum lean muscle mass built is 3 to 5 lbs.
4.) Your nutritional choices play the BIGGEST role in your success with weight loss! Not everybody digest carbs the same way, not everybody processes fats the same, not everybody needs the same amount of protein. We need to figure out what works best for YOU and YOUR body! Having your gut on point with a High Quality Probiotic, such as PhysIQ ProBio, is essential!
