Building muscle and burning fat at the same time is the ideal goal for many weight lifters. However, you will hear experts/professionals telling you this cannot happen for one simple reason. Their rule is; to build muscle you must be in a calorie surplus (eating more calories than your body burns). And to burn fat you must be in a calorie deficit (eating less calories than your body burns).
Thus to do both at the same time is deemed impossible as you cannot be in a deficit and a surplus. This is exactly why bodybuilders do “bulking” and “cutting” phases.
So, is it possible to build muscle and burn fat at the same time?
Yes. The bodybuilders are right in one sense because you cannot be in a deficit and a surplus of calories at the same time. However, what they fail to realise is that although a calorie surplus is definitely a good strategy to build muscle, it most certainly isn’t the ONLY strategy. And the same applies to a calorie deficit for fat burning.
Naturally increasing your testosterone levels is a clever way to pack on some serious muscle mass whilst burning fat. Every man will have a level of testosterone in their body, but to different degrees. Those that have a higher testosterone serum level, will naturally build muscle and burn fat faster than someone with a lower count.
This basically means if one high testosterone male went to the gym and completed the same exercises, reps/sets and ate the same diet as a guy with a lower testosterone level. The higher T male would build more muscle and get more ripped in the process. Pretty unfair if you’re the lower T dude right?!
This general principle can be applied in real life comparing blacks to whites. The average black man is more likely to get more jacked muscles, and a ripped body from lifting weights compared to a white man. The answer lies in simple biology, and that is because black men have superior testosterone levels and thus better genetics for building muscle. Obviously there are exceptions to this rule, just like with any other.
Shane Raymond is a 100% natural and drug-free athlete and is a great example of someone with exceptional muscle building/fat burning genetics (high testosterone levels).
You CAN Increase Your Testosterone Levels
Studies are proving that certain ingredients including vitamins, minerals and amino acids that are naturally occurring in all our daily foods; can raise our testosterone levels significantly when taken in higher dosages via natural supplementation.
This is why testosterone boosters are great for helping you boost your natural testosterone levels, and consequently helping you get ripped.
This is an amino acid that naturally occurs in soy protein, bacon and casein protein (milk protein). However this is only available through such foods in small quantities. A PUBMED study has found that D-Aspartic acid is responsible for synthesizing testosterone and a higher dose via supplementation can increase T by an amazing 142% (1).
TestoFuel Testosterone Booster
TestoFuel contains a whopping 2300mg dose of D-Aspartic Acid, which will send your T levels surging. TestoFuel is packed with other vitamins and minerals, such as zinc, oyster extract, magnesium and vitamin D that several studies have confirmed will significantly increase your T levels (2).
After 3 months of taking TestoFuel I had gained 1.5 inches on my Arms
I also got more ripped and lowered my body fat down to 8%
I am living proof that you can build muscle and burn fat at the same time. I also managed to increase my strength by 40% on most lifts and my muscle tone and definition increased a lot (see below).
My TestoFuel Monthly Progress
Month 1 – Didn’t notice too much difference, more energy in the gym and a more pumped look day to day, but nothing dramatic.
Month 2 – A couple of weeks into month 2, I was putting on a lot of muscle and my abs and arm definition were improving rapidly.
Month 3 – Same as month 2, but my gains were even faster, my strength was through the roof and it was at the end of this month where my physique really went to the next level and I got ripped. People were complimenting me left, right and centre by the end of the third month!
Ultimate Muscle Gainer’s Package
As most of my results came in the second and third months I recommend you get the Ultimate Muscle Gainer’s Package like I did – where you get a 4 month supply. You also get a free box/month’s worth of TestoFuel with this deal so you actually save the most, bringing your cost per day of supplementation average down significantly.
