Hi everyone, I'm finishing my first Dietbet and I'm already thinking about my next one!

I want to get back into weight lifting - but has anyone encountered issues where losing fat and adding muscle is wreaking havoc with your weigh-ins? Cause, y'know, muscle weighs more than fat...?

This is my first Dietbet as well. I am lifting just to maintain the muscle that I do have. I've been in a calorie deficit for awhile now so I wouldn't make any new muscle. I first want to lose the extra pounds and then start fresh.

Good morning! I am new to Dietbet. 6 months new to lifting. Now I would like to put the 2 together. I am looking for strong connections. Anybody out there?

I really want to start lifting to build some muscle. I want to be able to at least consider becoming a vigilante, like Batman/Arrow. Plus, everyone knows muscle burns more calories than fat, so, BONUS. :)

So I'm super duper brand new to lifting. But I like the idea of becoming strong and fit instead of just skinny. What is everyone's routine like and what's your favorite thing to do? I'm an absolute noodle and can hardly lift anything but I'm excited to see progress.

Yeah, the general rule for finding weight is at least 8 reps and no more than 10, meaning you need to be able to do at least 8 reps with perfect form, but if you can do more than 10 reps on your last set with perfect form, up the weight If you start to go hardcore, you might start doing sets of 3- 4 reps, but that's way off in the future.

Personally, I do 3 sets of each exercise. I like simplicity so i do straight sets rather than a circuit.

The highly technical way to figure out how much you should be lifting is to determine your 1RM ( one rep max - how much you can lift for only 1 rep with perfect form) and then lift at 75% of that for 2 -3 sets. However, unless you have a coach/trainer/ experienced gym partner who is significantly stronger than you, you shouldn't attempt to determine your 1RM, as it could result in injury.

Again, get that form perfect and you're home free. This is a great article for my favourite lift: https://www.nerdfitness.com/blog/strength-training-101-how-to-squat-properly/

I'm a huge fan of kettlebells myself. I also love barbell workouts.

I love to lift because it makes me feel badass! And it's helping me get a great ass at the same time!
Fat loss is slowly happening for me, but I can be patient as every day I feel new and stronger muscles.

I was talking to someone yesterday who kept saying "you need to do HIIT to lose fat!" I had to keep telling them - I want to enjoy my workout! I love lifting and I don't care if the fat comes off slower. I'm obsessed with being strong and fit, not skinny.

I wanted to start this group, as I feel like there are a lot of misconceptions about how to use weightlifting for fat loss. So, share your stories and let us know why you love weight lifting!
