Dietician recommends Strength Training to a Client


I had a call from Dawn Weatherwax at Sports Nutrition 2 Go re a mutual client. This man in the last year lost 5lbs of fat and gained 1 lb of muscle but us still at 20% body fat. He's a very competitive tri-athlete in his age bracket, like one of the top ten in national events and was invited to the world championships in Las Vegas. He wants to get faster and Dawn recommended adding more strength training and I agree. More cardio isn't going to do it. Subbing muscle for fat will occur with weight training. Too many endurance athletes don;t do enough strength training! they think they'll gain weight when they'll actually become more lean.
