Strength being the important variable?
or am i the only one?
Im cutting and I have no idea what youre talking about.
I workout to minimize weight, secondary maximize strength
once i get to my target weight that will flipflop
The only reason I can guess you would be doing this is to compete at some sport with weigh ins
there are a bunch of sports that don't need weigh-ins that you'd do the same thing for.. even some weigh-ins people just work with what they're already around
what do you do? gymnastics? climbing? etc?
sweet, thought everyone was a body builder =p
lol hey there
not necessarily. sometimes lighter is better, even though its not required
I wasn't even thinking fat reduction, I was thinking of trying to reduce muscle mass and increase strength like through CNS adaptation.
I do it to keep my flexibility and speed.
WTF is CNS adaption!??!
and....i'd like to lose weight and get stronger
Ask C4, hes an olympic lifter...
lose fat, gain muscle.
i THINK its the work that your muscle does when dealing with repetitive gravity resistance and the building of strength to make that movement efficient. too lazy to look it up, just like you.
sorta, gaining muscle is fine, but not too much, definitely no where near body building size
same here. just want to look decent.
What i mean, more importantly, is that any gain in muscle size is complimented by a large gain in strenght.
Not really concerned about strength, not my main goal. I've noticed myself getting bigger muscle wise, but as far as strength goes I can never tell as I do not push myself due to injuries that could be re-aggrivated.
I do however want to have the body building physique, I'm halfway there. Another 4 years and I'll be good to go.
there are two aspects to strength, muscle size and how efficient your central nervous system is at controlling your muscles (firing motor neurons in sync).
CNS adaptation is basically you CNS becoming more efficient (more neurons fired at the right time), controlling your muscles better, and allowing them to lift more weight with no change in size.
If you take a look at some oly lifters, they are relatively tiny, but can lift ridiculous amounts of weight. Their CNS's > *
hell yeah, no place for you in here
little people only
