Is it possible to build muscle while burning fat? Tom Venuto said to mix both weight training for building muscle and cardio for fat burning. He said if you just do cardio you can end up losing muscle (burning too much calories than you consume). To prevent muscle loss, he says add weight training which helps to both build and maintain muscle mass. So it is possible to get ripped / burn fat while building / maintaining muscle mass.

Those who do bulking (only weights and high calorie intake) create most muscle mass while also increasing bodyfat (not too much but due to very high calorie intake, extra energy gets stored as fat). And this extra energy / fat helps to keep muscle mass also, logical no? Fat / extra calorie feeds the muscle also during bulking. Thanks Tom Venuto.

A lot of absolute nonesense being posted in this thread.
As if you'd waste your time with cardio, and yes cardio is catabolic when greater than around 45 minutes
OP look up lactic acid training and protein consumption should be about 3 grams per lean mass kg body weight, you'll build muscle and cut at the same time.

it is impossible to build muscle and lose fat at the EXACT same time. that would require being in an anabolic (caloric surplus) and catabolic (deprived of calories) state at the same time. It IS possible to lose fat and build muscle in the same day however, but it only really happens to a big degree in beginners with good training/diet. You hit a wall VERY quickly though where it becomes near impossible to do both at the same time. With PERFECT training and diet you can do it but neither very fast hence why it is better to split it up or just get really lean once then slow bulk forever. If your trying to do both in the same day then that is pretty much the only case where meal timing matters (example: Intermittent fasting diet, fasted cardio in the AM. Feeding period, then lift. Eat after lifting.) If your heavy on the tech then none of this applies and you can eat whatever the **** you want and pump yourself full of cuttting agents and gain 5 pounds a week while losing 1% BF because your body is in such an anabolic state from the hormones and your muscles take in protein like OP's girlfriend takes in BBCs.
all that being said you can easily gain strength while cutting hard, with good training and diet.miscin' since 07.....
s2k all day

The misc reckons that bulking with any type of food gives them the RIGHT nutrients. It is not physically possible to get the right nutrients from the wrong foods.
Good luck to you lame asses bulking, cutting, bulking cutting, i.e. wasting your time
