How much muscle do you need and the NEXT fitness bootcamp


A lot of times people ask and even argue with me on why I don't do any Traditional "cardio" in my Boot Camps...

Well I usually have 1 of 2 responses, the first one is: "Why would you pay to have someone tell you to go for a run?"
Some people don't like that answer..

My other answer is: "Well what is your fitness goal? Is it to enhance your cardio respiratory endurance? or Is it to Lose weight, Burn Fat, build some lean quality muscle?

If the answer is to lose weight, Burn Fat and build lean quality muscle, which it usually is, then I say well that's what we do in my bootcamps..we use the most effective way possible to get you the results you want.

"Why do we have to use resistance (weights) if I want to lose weight?" is another question I get asked alot...

How much muscle do you need if you want to lose weight?

I found an interesting blog post from Alwyn Cosgrove that might give you some information you might not have:

"Q: Once and for all - how many calories does a pound of muscle burn?

A: To be honest - it seems we really aren't completely sure. Everyone originally thought (until recently) that is was about 50 calories per pound of muscle per day. Recently numbers have surfaced that suggest it's closer to 10-20 calories per day. Maybe the next study will tell us that it's only 7 calories, or it's actually 57 calories...

In reality though - does it matter? If I told you that it was exactly 13.172 calories - what would you do differently in your fat loss training because of that information?

Here's what we know for sure - Muscle burns calories. About 5 times as many calories as the same amount of fat does. The acquisition of muscle and the use of muscle (and the presence of muscle - even if it's just sitting there doing nothing) all requires calories.

Muscle is metabolically active tissue -- increase your muscle mass and your metabolism goes up, reduce your muscle mass and your metabolism goes down. Everyone agrees on that.

So the take home message when looking at increasing metabolism - is to focus on increasing or at least maintaining muscle. And then using as much of it as possible in your workouts."
