I have been bulking for 1 month, on a 5x5 program. I have gone from 164lbs to 172lbs in 4 weeks. I am drinking whole milk, pounding back steaks,chicken,ground beef, and eggs. I would say I am eating pretty clean just a lot of food. I have added 1/2 in to my waist so far.
I am skinny fat, and in the past when I have tried to gain weight I have given up 2-3 weeks in. I have some psychological issues with trying to bulk while still having a 36in waist, and I know I need to add muscle to balance it out, it’s just hard for me. I told myself I wouldn’t worry about what the scale said and I would only weight myself once a month. (I would gain like 3 lbs in 1 week and go to low calorie diet again)
Is this to much weight gain? Should I worry, or try to reach my goal of 185-190 before new years?
