Our expert says:
Difficult to say. I think the diet is probably more likely to hold the 'answer' than the training. You might increase muscle mass as a result of exercise, but you're not doing the amount or intensity to cause this, from the sounds of it. Generally, people who do hours a day, and we're talking more than an hour, will gain muscle mass much more. So I would be surprised if all the changes are down to exercise alone. To me, it's likely that your diet has changed more than your exercise, and also that your other actvities (the other 23 hours a day) have maybe changed enough that over the last year, you've seen these changes.
I'd say that you need to assess diet and general activity. And while the 15 minutes and the class is good, I would suggest that if you can, you increase this to 30 minutes a day and see how it changes.
