Ep. 238 - How Heavy Will You Be When Lean

On this episode of RNT Fitness Radio, we dissect our most popular article ever written - How Heavy Will You Be When Lean. Inside this podcast, we dissect new findings relative to BMI, example RNTers relative to their muscle mass and journey, and how to improve your standing on the ranges listed, which comes through building muscle over time. For anyone who’s ever been attached to a specific bodyweight number on the scale, you won’t want to miss this one. I’d recommend getting the article open to reference against when we discuss some of the new ranges we’ve updated inside it - you can find it in the show notes.
“Once you know your range, accept it and it’s going to be liberating.”
