Researchers at McMaster University have uncovered significant new evidence in the quest for the elusive goal of gaining muscle and losing fat, an oft-debated problem for those trying to manage their weight, control their calories and balance their protein consumption. Scientists have found that it is possible to achieve both, and quickly, but it isn't easy.
Running and muscle gains do not go hand in hand according to most. Many think that you either weight train to put on mass or you run which increases endurance and makes the body lean. The thing is, there are people that love running but also want to put on muscle. Getting the best of both worlds is possible. The secret to doing so is paying close attention to your training routine and designating time each week (3 days a week to be exact) for weight training.
