I saw this posted in another thread without an answer but it piqued my interest so I was hoping I could get some insight from the knowledgeable members of this site
“would you say strength is almost directly correlated with muscle?
As in lets just say I’m losing weight/cutting but my strength has stayed the same or gone up (which it has) in all or close to all exercises, can I be nearly positive that I have not lost muscle? And when “bulking” if I’m gaining weight at a good pace and gaining significant strength is it likely to be mostly muscle?”
I’m not sure about the cutting part which is where my main curiosity about this comes from but I will say I’ve bulked before gaining a good amount of strength yet putting on a high percentage of fat too fast or even just not putting muscle on at certain times (following good nutrition advice, not cheating, etc…)
so, opinions on the quote?
