QUICK FACT: “Body Composition & Body Recomposition.”

Many people tell me that they want to lose or gain weight. But when they do, they are no happier than they were before they started. Why is this? A male who is 6′ 200lbs and strength trains looks different than a male who is 6′ 200lbs and sits on the couch all day eating chips.

This is because of “Body composition.” Body composition is the way our mass, fat and muscle, come together to form our body and overall fitness level. One who consistently trains and diets will have a better body composition than one who doesn’t. So what does this say about the people who want to “lose weight.” Maybe they didn’t want to lose weight at all, maybe they just wanted to recompose the way their fat and muscle mass is distributed.

Fat and muscle look and feel different on the body. One pound of muscle and one pound of fat displaces differently on the body. Lowering body fat percentage and increasing muscle mass is how recomposition works. This has to be done through proper diet and exercise.

About Anthony Boyd

I go by the alias Anthony Boyd & this blog is my series of theses on philosophy, spirituality, physical expression of strength & human behavior through self-reflective spoken & written word. I’ve been a Union Delegate for 6 years. During this time I have developed countless leadership skills that I’ll be sharing with you all on this blog. Leadership is something I’ve develop through hours of research, strength training & personal application of growth strategies. I started this blog with the intention of disseminating the leadership & developments skills I’ve attained over the past 6 years as a leader because there is a huge need for male leadership. It has developed into a conduit for sharing these ideas in hopes that others can gain insight from them as well. Two things have always been constant in my three decades of life on Earth, my ability to express myself through the word & my unquenchable curiosity of everything around me. Combine that with my obsession with strength training, personal development & we have this blog. It is my hope that I can provide endless value, insight and perspective gained through experience as a leader to the readership I have developed here.
