    So there is this lady that runs our company gym...she is supposedly a trained fitness professional but today we had a small debate about something i thought was right and i defended my case to the end...


    she says that fat weighs more than muscle. I said that i've heard a lot of people say that muscle weighs more than fat...has an article come out stating this?? She keeps saying she has the documentation to prove it but she never shows me, she conviently says later after work when she knows she leaves before i do...


    cliffs: fitness bitch at work says fat weighs more than muscle, and i don't believe her...is she right or am i wrong?

    Pretty sure a pound of muscle weighs the same as a pound of fat.

    The pound of muscle will take up less space, though :mamoru:

    muscle is denser than fat, which means:

    1) for the same amount of weight, muscle takes up less volume
    2) for the same volume, muscle weighs more
