    Does not compute. Building muscles will make you gain weight, just not the fatty kind. However this doesn't mean you shouldn't do it; it's better to look like a powerbear than just a fat guy, or a ripped guy than a thin guy :woo:

    yeah what i meant was that i would like to lose weight
    i do my daily (well every two days most weeks) >1 hour cardio but i hear that gaining muscle will help lose the fat

    i didn't literally mean, i want to see 60kg on the scales as opposed to 80kg (no real numbers lol!)
    because i know that mucles weights more than fat etc.

    yeah...

    It will not make you smaller no. I'm interested in what you intend to use to build muscles if you're running a calorie deficit?

    If you do enough cardio then your diet is probably ****. Try looking there instead.

    Surely you are interested in losing fat, not just weight, correct?

    You can do starting strength on a calorie deficit if you want to. You won't be able to progress for very long, but you can certainly still do the routine. You are NOT going to gain muscle on a calorie deficit, but you will be able to keep more of the muscle you already have and hopefully shed some fat. If all you did was cardio, you'd lose fat and muscle. If you weight train, especially a good full body program like Starting Strength, you will keep more muscle. Plus you will definitely get stronger, and this will increase your work capacity to enable you to lose even more fat by doing hard things.

    Well it's the best training program for beginners to weight training which will burn the most calories and work the whole body in the most efficient amount of time. But if you want to waste your time on machines, feel free.

    yeah losing fat, thats what i meant!

    im not on a calorie defecit as such
    im eating less, or replacing bad foods with healthy
    mostly im just doing more exercise

    ok you said a lot there!
    so basically i should do as i thought:
    continue my cardio plan, and lift more weights

    at the moment i do around 30 mins cardio then lift weights to build up arm strength because i play tennis

    i want to increase the amount of weights i do in order to gain enough muscle to start of that "gain muscle = lose fat" thing that people keep saying... or am i mistaken/this aint the case?

    your sig is disgusting btw!! :p:

    I always thought that there were 3 types of weight training:
    MUSCLE BUILDING: high intensity, low reps (around 8)
    TONING: Medium intensity, medium reps (20~)
    WEIGHT LOSS: Light weight, high reps (50 if possible)

    then again im not a personal trainer... :P

    It's more like this:

    PROPER WEIGHTLIFTING: High intensity, low reps (5-10)
    PUSSYING AROUND: Light weight, high reps

    Yes, of course I'm generalising, but it's very rare that high rep work is good for that much unless you do a sport you need to particularly develop strength endurance for.

    OP: Are you male? If you are, I have no idea why you'd want to see 60kg on the scales.

    as a fellow brown person, i am sure that you probably eat **** loads of rice without thinking anything of it. stop doing this, it's not good for you if your metabolism can't handle it, it's full of empty carbs or something, which you don't want. eat much less rice, and more meat and vegetables and crank your cardio up a notch, it's probably not good enough atm if it isn't working.

    ah i already stopped eating rice a year ago
    my metabolism sucks, i need ways to get that to change aswell..

    in a vegetarian family its hard to get meat, i eat it myself but i cannot bring it in the house etc.
    i eat quite a bit of chicken being a lean meat and all that.. (not fried obviously!)

    cardio is cranked up so much that im killing myself! (well not literally) its working enough to have had a good outcome in the last 6 months

    the aim of the thread was just to find ways of using weights to accelerated fatloss... since i keep hearing that putting on muscle can do this but no ones ever explained how exactly!

    thanks for the help old fruity
