- Different people will lose at different rates and a lot will depend on total bodyweight.
- The more fat you have to lose the faster it will come off and vice versa, the less fat you have to lose, the slower progress will be.
- You can typically expect to lose anywhere from 0.5-1% of your total bodyweight per week.
- However, if you are new to resistance training it may come slower than this as you build muscle and lose fat simultaneously. It is unlikely this will happen pound for pound but will cause you to lose at a slower rate.
- It is much harder to build muscle than it is to lose fat which means gains come much slower and is largely dependant on your training age and experience.
- The longer you have been resistance training, the slower your gains will be.
- Just because you have been training a long time doesn’t necessarily mean you are an advanced trainee however. You can have trained for years but still be a beginner if you haven;t been following smart training principles.
