You'd think that. But I just finished reading a study, cole’s notes go like this: 100 sedentary participants, body fat in the 30-40% range, split in to 2 groups, one group did 3 weight based circuit training workouts and 2 interval based cardio workouts per week, supervised by strength and conditioning coaches while the other group did nothing. Neither group was given nutritional advice and the study ran for 16 weeks. End results, the exercise group gained 2 pound of muscle and lost 1 pound of fat. The no exercise group had no change in BF% or weight.
