How to Gain Muscle

I want to gain muscle. Should I stop running and just do strength training?
Submitted by FitnessEditor

“Running is definitely not counterproductive to building muscle, unless you’re looking to dramatically increase muscle mass,” says Gregory Florez, CEO of Fitadvisor.com. “In fact, as a weight-bearing exercise, running helps develop more lean muscle mass in the lower body—which also keeps your bones healthy.”

That doesn’t mean it’s a substitute for strength-training, though. “Include lower-body strength moves like squats and lunges and upper-body moves like push-ups and pull-ups to reduce injury risk, increase stamina and boost metabolism,” adds Florez.
