Athletic competition places the body in an above and beyond situation in its need for muscle mass and stamina. But there was a time when this need for finely tuned and reliable muscle mass was not a sport or a luxury—it was a survival necessity. Consider our early ancestors. They were probably the best athletically prepared group of people history has ever known—they had to be to survive. Humans needed lower body and core strength in order to keep running at a pace that would not exhaust their muscles but would ensure they eventually outpaced the game they were chasing. They needed upper body and core strength to repeatedly lift moderately heavy objects (e.g., rocks and clubs) to use as weapons against large herbivores once they were trapped. It was unlikely that our ancestors had large, overdeveloped, isolated muscle groups—such as is pictured in many sports and fitness related magazines.
The main reasons athletes should want to gain muscle mass, while reducing fat mass, is to improve their strength and speed as well as overall health. As with early man, runners will want to focus on lower body and core muscles. Weightlifters, core and upper body. Competition swimmers must have both.
Now, here is where the ‘how to’ accomplish your desired goal gets interesting. Everything hinges on what you eat, when you eat it, and how you use your nutrition in conjunction with your workouts.
Don’t worry—there is a natural Cheat Day once a week, on the same day each week, built-into the program. On this day you can eat whatever and how much of whatever you like. This helps to shock your metabolism and keep you on a clean eating schedule 6 days of the week.
