    strength while maintaining weight

    I'm familiar with the concept to gain mass you must be eating more calories than you burn. To loose weight you must have a calorie deficit. My question is, how much strength can be gained from a solid lifting program WHILE loosing weight or maintaining current weight. Also if I am about at my ideal weight would it be more effective to go on a gaining phase for a couple months and then cut some of the fat I gained. OR should I not worry about gaining and cutting and just continue lifting and training hard while maintaining my current weight.

    Well a common misconception is that in order to get stronger, you have to add muscle mass. Therefore, you can add quite a bit of strength without getting heavier.

    Keep lifting and training and do your best to only eat nutritious, wholesome food.

    you can indeed make strength gains without notable size increase.

    1)myofibrillar vs sarcoplasmic hypertrophy

    2)most boxers run to supplement condition, but its mainly use to control weight.
