A bit of background: I’ve been following Starting Strength for 8 weeks and my diet is in surplus of about +800 calo/day.
My workout is:
Workout A: Squat, Bench, Chins, Hyper
Workout B: Squat, Press, Deadlift.
So the weekly timetable is: ABA Rest, BAB, Rest -> So on and so forth for 8 weeks.
I took measurements yesterday and found out that: 1) Put on 2.1 kg of muscle mass and BF went down 2% bringing it to 16.3%; 2) My arms shrunk by 2cm; My waist, hips and thighs increased by 5 cm; 3) My chest, shoulders, neck remain the same.
The question is: #2 what happened to my arms? I’ve been doing pulling and chins 2x week on SS program, why did my arms shrink and chest and shoulders unchanged, but my thighs increased 8%?
Suggestions and tips are always appreciated.
