Last year, J.B. listed 4 “types” of trainees he sees (in decreasing order of frequency). I decided to do a sort of “unofficial” survey to see where the Forum Community stood. It goes without saying that 1) This was a very limited survey. 2) It is not “scientific” and 3) the pool of respondents was small.
With that said, I still found some results interesting and wanted to share them with you.
Out of 43 Total Responses:
- Those who gain neither fat NOR muscle easily. (6 or 14%)
- Those who gain more FAT than muscle. (11 or 26%)
- Those who gain both fat AND muscle easily. (17 or 40%. I really didn’t think that this was going to be the largest category. Since I tend to gain more fat than muscle, I sort of thought that the majority would be here. Lesson learned!)
- Those who gain more muscle than fat. (I think J.B. was here. 1 or 2%).
1)In a category that J.B. didn’t even list, 3 people (or 7%) varied among body parts! (That was interesting).
2)1 changed category as they got older. (This was also interesting. I think that this will occur both in a negative OR positive direction, depending on lifestyle changes, and whether or not these changes are for the better or for the worse).
3)1 was “mixed” (2/3). (I think that there may be a few more like this).
4)1 was unclear.
5)1 was the inevitable, and ever present, “flame”.
So…as always…your thoughts are welcome as we all continue to learn.
