Gaining Muscle To Lose Fat


Have you ever lost some weight only to not really have the 'look' you imagined at your new bodyweight?

This is normally due to a lack of muscle which can be from never having much (thanks, chronic cardio!) or from losing a bunch in the dieting process (thanks, crash dieting!)

In today's podcast, the coaches dig in on some client and listener questions. Everything from what is the most optimal workout frequency for "gainz" to losing a bunch of weight but still having body fat

where you don't want it.

Check it out and as always, if you have a question of your own you want to be answered in the podcast email it to contact@coastalfitnessva.com.
