San Diego Muscular Training

muscule trainingMuscular Training is anaerobic in nature, as is cardiovascular training, and therefore should be done only after eating adequate carbohydrate amounts to fill glycogen stores (reserve of energy).

To try to accomplish cardiovascular training or muscular training without adequate carbohydrate reserves is to force the body to make glucose, which it will do from protein in your muscles causing decreased muscle mass. This is why I stated not to cross into the anaerobic arena while doing aerobic exercise.

Muscular training, as stated, is anaerobic while training; however-and this is key-increasing one's muscle mass or simply toning existing muscles increases fat oxidation (burning) while you are aerobic!!

 What this means is that having a larger muscle mass is equivalent to adding more engine to a race car!! It increases your metabolic rate, allows you to liberalize your diet and increase your total calories as well as burn a higher percentage of fat while doing nothing (this includes sleeping!).

Have you ever wondered why more muscular people can eat all-day-long and not get fat? The answer is muscle. Therefore; tying some of these concepts together, it follows that losing fat is not all about calorie restriction.

Our fat Loss techniques involve increasing ones ability to burn fat (muscle mass) which increases one's metabolic rate which, in many cases, can allow you to increase your calories and still lose weight!! Personally, I eat 5000-6000 calories per day and continue to keep a low bodyfat level. We offer muscle training in San Diego. If you are interested in San Diego Muscular Training please contact us.
