If you have read one of my previous posts, you will know that I’m an 18 year old, 131lbs, 5ft 10, with a bf% of around 5%, and that I’ve been training for about 6 months, in which time I’ve put on about 2lb of fat, 1lb of muscle and about 2lb of water.
This is despite hard training in the gym. My calorie intake has been fairly high- about 2800 a day, and been consistantly clean. My question is, how is it possible, when training hard and following a fairly well-structured diet, to gain more fat than muscle?
Advice which has been given to me in order to increase my muscle mass is to eat more, but surely this would only further contribute to a greater fat gain ratio over minimal muscle gain,as has so far been the case?
