Atrophy

A wasting of tissues from disuse, illness, or steroid injection

Question: Atrophy?????????????? Okay you know how if your about 40 years old and if you don't use your muscle you get atrophy? Well, my question is if your a teenager around 17, 18 and up can you get atrophy too if you don't ever use your muscles? But won't you just get fat?! Lol. This is a silly question, but I was wondering.

Answer: fat and muscle atrophy are 2 differnet things. getting fat usually is not far from other aspects of lazy life, but un-related to atrophy specifically.
