    My log for reference.

    Question: This guy on there posted on the second page of my log about mass building hytrophy and how I shouldn't really be doing it? What does that mean? I looked online for some stuff about it, and all it said is that it's for building muscle. which is what I wanna do. so should I keep doing what I'm doing or stop.

    Goals for reference: Lose fat and gain muscle. started 4 months ago @ 250 and now am at 225. :) but I've gotten brollyer/stronger.

    Cliffs: what does muscle building hytrophy mean?

    Okay. that's what I was going to do because there were a couple of really cool OT brolly's who were telling me that I was doing everything okay, but bam he put that fancy hytrophy word in there and I just wanted to make sure. Thanks!!

    hytrophy. Isn't a word he probably meant hypertrophy which is gaining muscle. Even though your goal is fat loss hard intense lifting is very beneficial. It will cause significant calorie burn as well as overall health benefits.

    Thanks guys! I really appreciate it! At first, I felt really uncomfortable for posting on here for fear of getting flamed cuz I'm a n00b. But I really appreciate the positive help! I'm starting to do FitDay on thursday and hopefully once I get the hang of it, I'll be able to get some serious leaning down of fat and building up of muscle!

    Only dumb noobs get flamed. You seem to be doing things right and asking non-retarded questions.
