Why would someone want to lose lean body mass? How is that considered fit?

    So, I was on bodybuilding.com earlier reading about lean body mass etc. It asked about goals, etc... It showed different pictures of a woman physiques, once you clicked it, it stated how much body fat percentage loss was needed and how much lean body mass loss was needed. The only physique that required LBM gain was the bodybuilder.

    Their goal setting application is ridiculous. I'm not sure how it calculates things, but it's absurd. I've complained many times that they need to fix it. Ignore it and set your own goals or just delete the goal.
