Are you Leaning or Increasing Muscle?
Have you been in a muscle building phase forever or have you been trying to lose body fat for as long as you can remember?
This is the question you should be asking yourself to know if you are making progress. The reason it’s so important is Hormonal Optimisation. Hormones like Insulin and Testosterone will help with muscle growth and Fat Loss when the body is at the correct body fat range.
First point of call is to figure out what phase you should be in. This can be decided very easily, these numbers are from my online Protocol program, if you are male under 13% then you should be in a muscle growth phase. If you are over 13% then you should be in a lean down phase. If you are female and your body fat is under 20% then you should be in muscle growth phase. If you are over 20% then you should be in a lean down phase. These numbers can be used as a guide. Body fat can be measured by Callipers, Body Metrix and Dexa testing systems.
