Does Muscle Building Increase Your Weight ?

Muscle building initially doesn't tip your scales lower. That happens only because while you are losing the excess fat, you are also gaining muscle. Muscle weighs more per square inch than fat, so though your weight doesn't drop very quickly, you are getting healthier, slimmer and better toned. The simple fact is that working your muscles as well as your heart and lungs can improve your health .

Every additional pound of muscle you gain helps your body burns around 90 extra calories every day of the week in comparison to just exercising. Resistance training or weight training can increase your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) by up to 15%. Your metabolism takes care of burning fat and converting it into energy required for the body's functions. A greater BMR indicates a greater ability of the body to burn fat.
