Hey can someone explain beginner gains to me? I know if a person has been away from weights for a long time or if they are new to weightlifting that they can add muscle whilst burning fat?
this sounds kinda of counter-intuitive as a person needs to be on a surplus to gain muscle right?
Taking me for example, I haven't worked out in 3-4 years and am at 220 roughly 25-27% bf (160lbm) goal is 10% bf, which if lbm was retained would be 180.
But would beginner gains allow me to increase my lbm? therefore hit 10% at a higher weight?
