    The question is in the subject box.

    I just can't believe it?

    Is it really that black and white? Is it not possinle to have massive breat muscles or great biceps if you run alot?

    If you are massive, have great muscles and do alot cardio - tell us the truuth. Show pics to prove that you can run alot but still have great muscles.

    No pics here, but I can tell you that it really just comes down to how many calories you consume vs how many you burn. If you are running often and are not able to consume a surplus of calories as a result, you won't gain muscle.

    I look at it this way.

    If you want to look like a runner, run.
    If you want to look like a swimmer, swim.
    If you want to look like a weightlifter, lift weights.

    Bodies adapt the work they are used for. If you add muscle, your metabolism will go up and you will burn more fat. I would not do endurance running unless you have a lot of fat to burn. My trainer swears by intervals.
