Body recomposition, or “recomp,” involves improving body composition by simultaneously decreasing fat and increasing muscle mass. Dr. Schoenfeld asserts that resistance training alone is a poor strategy for losing weight and is most valuable when used as an adjunct to calorie reduction. If a person reduces their caloric intake to lose weight, as much as 30 percent of their weight loss may come from muscle – unless they engage in resistance training. In this clip, Dr. Brad Schoenfeld describes the importance of resistance training and adequate protein intake to prevent losing muscle mass during weight loss.
