I spent the past 3 years not doing anything really important. Then I decided to get back into sports (especially boarding) and get fit around april of this year. So far I have lost weight to the tune of 45 lbs and working on 30 more before next year. What I want to do is incorporate more weight training into my current regiment, is there any truth to the hi rep low weight = lean muscle thing? I thought that the difference was in the diet during recovery. Also, is it easier to build lean muscle on as I lose or would you lose to goal and then focus on muscle building?
