Nutrition or training - which is more important? 🍽 or 💪 # Probably most of you have have heard the old saying that “80 % of bodybuilding is nutrition”. Putting an exact percentage on the contribution of nutrition and training respectively in achieving a lean and muscular physique is impossible, but we can give some good guidelines on which is more important and which should you focus on more, depending on your goals. # If your goal is to lose fat, nutrition is the big rock you should focus on, hands down. You’ve probably heard that “you can’t outtrain a bad diet” and that’s true for 99 the vast majority of people. # Unless you’re a professional athlete (or have incredible genetics) who is paid to train multiple hours per day, it’s just not realistic to create the kind of energy expenditure that would allow you to get away with eating anything you want. # So if your primary goal is fat loss, you should focus on getting your diet in check first, to create the necessary calorie deficit for fat loss to occur, then view training simply as a stimulus that allows you to keep your hard earned muscle throughout the cut. # If you’re in the opposite boat, and you’re trying to build muscle, training should be your #1 priority and you should let your nutrition support it. # This might come as a suprise to some, but you simply can’t force feed muscle growth without adequate training. You might put on a bit of muscle simply via the sheer amount of surplus energy you have available, but you will gain a lot of excess fat and that’s not an ideal scenario. # To gain as much muscle as possible, you should focus on muscle growth specific, high volume training with proper execution, and allow your nutrition to support the training sessions and the recovery and growth processes. # #rpstrength #rplifestyle #diet #nutrition #training #hypertrophy #bodybuilding #science #fatloss #fatlosstips #weightlosstips
