Just a quick post on a topic so often confused by many people. I often hear....I have gained some weight since I started weight training but muscle weighs more than fat. Okay..let's get a handle on that. A pound of muscle weighs exactly the same as a pound of fat. A pound is a pound no matter what. Keep in mind that a pound of muscle is much smaller in size than a pound of fat which is very voluminous. So get out there and lift some weights and tighten up the flab. You can do it.

Thanks for the post. I do realize that muscle weighs the same as fat, although I didn't know this the other day. From what I've been hearing, my weight should go up a little with the lean body mass. I'm sure changing the amount of cardio has something to do with it too. It's an adjustment, from someone who focused so much time to cardio!

That is why I always prefer to focus on measuring inches and percentage of body fat over weight. Unfortunately, weight is the most common measurement that most people relate to so I still use it as a reference to my progress.
