That blanket statement is simply not true at all. I personally am on trt... That's all but I concede that trt still puts me above the avg man when it comes to test levels BUT I have done it long before I ever touched anything. I did it as a teen, dis it as an adult after a lay off....wait I know.... Muscle memory BUT I have had a good amount of clients do it while on nothing, I have a woman I am training now that has lost about 50 lbs and has gained strength at an astonishing rate when you take her concurrent wt loss into account. There is no way she has not gained muscle. I've had client go from a pudgy 170 to a muscular 180 or so in a matter of months while on nothing. I am not saying its easy or that even everyone can but to say basically that someone must be on gear to make substantial LBM gains while losing fat is just incorrect.Originally Posted by Frank Reynolds
You may not be able to, that does not mean others can not. I've worked with too many people that have (to varying degrees) gained and lost at the sane time.
As I said earlier, if your body does not go into starvation mode....why would you not be able to gain and lose at the same time?
