Just in an attempt to clarify commonly used medical terminology and laymen terminology as far as what actually composes total body mass.
In the past, there have been posts by some eluding to what exactly is gained over years of training.
There is the argument that only "dry mass" should be counted...when the truth is, this can only be determined after death during autopsy.....because no human body is ever going to be dry enough to ONLY have dry muscle left without dying first.
Just for discussion:
This study brings into question using past bodybuilders in the 50's and 60's as standards when most were only Caucasian observed at all.
How can we use that as a standard with this in mind?
Gee, my guess is this changes commonly known lean body mass amounts greatly all in itself......
