Yes testosterone is the main Protein used to build muscle mass. however muscle can still be gained in its absence.
NO! your muscle does not turn into fat it just replaces it as you work out. the toning and mass of your muscle will decrease though witch will make your muscle "shrink" even if you dont work out extensivly you still need to do some kind of physical activity to maintain the muscle you have gained.
Most likely due to the loss of muscle mass.
yes as long as your muscle mass does not change.
Exercise increases muscle mass. If you increase muscle mass more than you reduce fat mass, you gain weight... but this is "good" weight.
Protein or weight gain shakes.
Firstly, it will depend on how long you have actually been training for, usually you will find you can get away with 2 to 3 weeks without any real training but then you will probably start to notice a difference. Perhaps you could do something else whilst your resting, a sport that's physically demanding, swimming, which exercises every muscle in the body, or Cycling..running etc.
It's likely because you're building muscle mass, which adds weight. This is not a bad thing. Muscle weighs more than fat, but you'll look better. Muscle mass also helps burn calories.
it increases muscle mass and muscle tone and the cardiovacular system
Athletes can safely add muscle tissue by working out and eating right. Weight training is often used by athletes to increase muscle mass.
The difference between muscle mass and muscle hypertrophy is that muscle hypertrophy is the increase in size of skeletal muscle while muscle mass is the weight of your body muscle.
You lose fat but gain muscle mass.
You can't. It takes working out. 2nd answer: After a lot of experimenting with animals, scientists found a way to increase muscle mass and strength using electrical connections into the muscle, then applying slight electrical stimulus. But that sort of verifies answer #1, because the muscles are still 'working out', in a sense.
an extra adjective that's not needed to describe muscle mass. Muscle mass is the amount of muscle in ones body as a % of their total weight.

Why wouldnt you want muscle mass?Weight lifting is a technique inorder to gain muscle mass so stop weight lifting if you wish not to gain muscle mass.
Yes, swimming does build lean mucle mass, as most of the muscles in the body are working at the time of exercise this builds them up.
Muscle is gained from exercise. Muscle is denser than fat. Hence, working out will result in people getting heavier if done properly. In reality, people gain weight because they are eating more due to the metabolism boost they get from working out, which causes them to be hungrier. This usually happens in people who are inexperienced in dieting and exercise. This type of weight gain is far more common than gaining weight due to muscle mass increases. It is true, though, that people who are experienced in weight training and who diet properly will gain weight due to muscle mass increases. It is important to check your body fat percentages to find out if you are truly making progress with your exercise and dieting.
Protein is a fundamental building block of the human muscle. Muscle is mostly water and protein, that's why body builders consume a high intake of protein when working out, because it builds more muscle mass.
Yes, because as the size of your muscle increases, the mass of your muscle increases. And when the mass of your muscle increases, so does the weight.

Answer There's no such thing. Muscle is muscle. There are no "lean" muscles or "bulky"muscles. Some people have a greater muscle mass, some have less muscle mass- but that mass is muscle. A pound of muscle is going to require energy to stay around. If you have a greater muscle mass, you'll have a greater metabolism. He's right you know. This is really splitting hairs!
depends on how much muscle mass you have ;)
