Muscle VS Fat

THIS IS NOT A BEFORE AND AFTER! The first two photo are where i’m around 10st (140 pounds). The second/third/fourth photos are from around April 2013 and i’m 10st 5 pounds (145 pounds) and I stand tall at 5’7.

The first two photos are mainly cardio with some strength training. The second/third/fourth photos are equal cardio and strength training. I can see my arms, waist, hips and legs are smaller in the second/third photos even though I weigh 5 pounds more than previously!

Muslce and fat may weigh the same as indicated ^^ but look how dense the muscle is compared to the fat. And that is why I don’t rely on the scales anymore. Progress photos and a measuring tape are all I need.

“Women’s Weight Training Myth #1 -Weight training makes you bulky and masculine.” Due to the fact that women cannot naturally produce as much testosterone as males do, it is impossible for a woman to gain huge amounts of muscle mass by merely touching some weights.««

Now go Lift! And don’t be afraid to go heavy! :P
