What I mean is, you can grow muscle until it becomes more visually defined without losing much fat. You can be at 15% and look kinda chubby, then start lifting and start looking good and still be at 14-15%.
but if you are putting on weight in muscle to look more defined, wouldnt your percentage do down so long as you are not putting on more fat?
ex. you weight 100 lbs with 10 lbs of fat (10% BF%) you put on 100 lbs of muscle. You now weigh 200 lbs. If you did not put on any fat, your BF% would now be 5%.
