I would be inclined to say that it's most likely just adjustment.

comment Weight loss and weight lifting
@LarissaGodzilla: I suspect part of it is empty space. The fat is a series of irregular globules in a spread-out shape while the muscle is one compact bundle. Eyeing the picture, and imagining that the empty space was instead filled with the other bits of fat, I could see it being only 22% larger.

comment Is there a stretching equivalent of the food pyramid?
Ah. To give you a somewhat facile summary, static stretching is traditional "stretch to the point of discomfort and hold it for a few seconds". Dynamic stretching is "bouncing" to get a bit more range. PNF has you going to about the 80-90% point of static stretching and then flexing the muscles being stretched. Most people agree that "bouncing" is bad, but if you're doing those dynamic motions, such as in martial arts, it can make sense. Static versus PNF is a bit more fuzzy. I don't know if science has really weighed in in favor of either.

comment Weight loss and weight lifting
This may seem like a silly question, but are you weighing yourself in the morning right after getting up and hitting up the bathroom? The reason I ask is that a fair amount of weight is often water weight, and exercise can increase that due to many people overhydrating (despite early studies, overhydration is actually more common than underhydrating). If you're consuming a great deal of water, it could be temporarily skewing your weight figures.

comment Is there a stretching equivalent of the food pyramid?
^_^ Ah, well there are a few different philosophies regarding stretching. Last I saw, the PNF stretching was winning out over static and dynamic stretching, but it also depends on your goals. As regards a series of stretches to stretch everything, that's like asking for a set of exercises that covers all of the areas, difficult and contentious. Even the Food Pyramid has many critics since it really doesn't cover vitamins, minerals, and micronutrients in any sort of detail. Would it make things better if I listed Ramsay's routine?
