#1 Muscle turns into fat
Nope. Muscle is muscle and fat is fat. One type of tissue doesn’t turn into another type of tissue.
It’s the same with other parts of your body..one part doesn’t turn into another.
#2 Muscle Weighs More Than Fat
Muscle takes up less space than fat, but a pound is a pound is a pound.
Take two women who are about the same height and bone structure and have the same body type (ectomorph, endomorph and mesomorph) – the woman with more muscle can fit into a smaller pair of jeans even though she weighs more on the scale.
That’s only one good reason to use the scale as a tool in the toolbox, not as something that dictates your value or what mood you should be in.
#3 Use Light Weight and High Reps to Tone
You build muscle with heavy weights, not lots of reps.
If you want to “tone”, you need to build some muscle and you only do that by challenging the muscles.
You won’t get muscle definition from using sweet little pink weights, but you will see those muscles pop if you have great genetics, spot on nutrition and lift some heavier weights.
p.s. The word “tone” has been used to make the word “strong” seem more palatable to women, but we know better, don’t we? Strong is sexy and feminine! You don’t get bulky, you get lean and strong!
