I'm a freshman in college, playing on a D1 athletic team. Since I've started the strength and conditioning program, I've gained about 15-20 pounds, almost all of which is LBM. I went from about 175lbs 6%BF (Skinny mofo, I know) to 192lbs 9% bf. I did this over the course of 5 months.
I had one of our coaches tell me that I should try and keep my weight around where it is now, because gaining too much weight too quickly can lead to an increased chance of injury.
Is there any merit to this statement? I stretch 3x a day in order to ward off any injuries that might occur. Obviously I don't want to get hurt, but I've never felt better on the diamond than I do now, and I can only imagine what I'll feel like when I get to 200-210.
