People over-complicate things.
…but I don’t blame you since with the increase of “information” on the internet its hard to decipher whats bullshit or not.
Stick with the basic shit and really nail them down. Get a sufficient amount of sleep to recover for your next workout. Lift heavy enough so that you are progressing over time via reps, weight, or even your technique. Eat plenty of protein
Now if you want to build muscle and your body fat is low you’ll probably want to eat in a calorie surplus. If your body fat is already high you probably might decide to stay at maintenance or maybe a deficit while still building muscle. If you need to know what numbers to start with click the link in my bio and use the calculator to determine a baseline.
Other than that, those are some key differences between building muscle and losing fat. Sure there will be some variance in the individual regarding nutritional preferences, exercise selection, program design how many times a week one can/should train, biomechanics etc. But I’m talking about what MOST people need and need to start with.
Also, cardio is important for overall wellbeing, so I didnt say avoid it. Its just MOST people over do it because they think it helps them with fat loss. Lifting weights creates shape. Getting your nutrition right reveals what you build through lifting weights.
BE PATIENT AND CONSISTENT
