Here’s the next episode of the UNCENSORED Podcasts Season 2.
Today’s topic: Muscle is Forever
The term “building muscle” is the most common term we hear when referring to an increase in muscle size. This however is not the most accurate way of imagining how a muscle actually increases it’s size. A better way to think of it is inflating and deflating a balloon, and increasing the ‘rubber’ of the balloon.
From there it gets a little more complex with the incorporation of muscle specific stem cells called “satellite cells”.
In todays podcast we review the claims of an interesting self experiment done by Nate Green who gained 20lbs of lean mass in only 28 days. We determine that it’s more correct to say that he actually ‘re-inflated’ the same 20lbs of muscle mass he used to have…and that it’s perfectly normal to expect to do this for anyone who has previously been 20lbs larger.
Fact is that once you’ve built the muscle you can always get it back even after years of taking time off. And it comes back FAST!
