Muscle to Fat Mass ComparisonMonday 10th of June 2013 04:16:24 PM
This image shows the difference in mass between 1kg of muscle and the same amount of fat.
Muscle fibres are more densely packed than those in fat.Therefore muscle takes up less space in the body.
Through increasing our muscle mass we speed up our metabolic rate which therefore helps burn our body fat faster. So next time your at the gym remember the importance of adding resistance training into your structured program.
