I need some sensible & professional help with a question. When trg my main problem has been trying to gain weight rather than losing it, so I always beasted myself towards that goal. I've just been asked the best way of losing excess fat without gaining muscle, and as I've had little to do with that I'm stumped. The bint concerned is twenty-five years old and has let herself gain a fair bit of chubbiness. She is holding herself to a fairly strict diet and trg programme. 30 mins stairwalker 20 mins trg bike at 8 kph (I don't know what level of resistance) 30 mins treadmill (7 mins run/3 mins walk x 3) 15 mins stairwalker This routine is carried out three to four times per week. Her weight loss was going fine at first then it shelved off and has now stopped. She has adhered to the diet/trg but now just seems to be increasing her muscle bulk and is understandably p!ssed off with this state of affairs. Any suggestions other than lay off the Ginsters ?
