Hey guys, this is my first post, I love the site.
I started weighlifting about 2 months ago. I was 170 lbs, 5’11 19 y/old. I’ve been eating big an lifting 3 times a week with all the big important stuff: squats, deads, chins, bench etc. I’m excited cause I’ve already gained 8 lbs and I can definetly see more mass on my shoudlers, arms and chest. My top 4 abs also appear to have sprouted which was a pleasant surprise.
The bad news though is where the bottom 4 abs are supposed to be, I appear to have gained some flub. I imagine it has something to do with eating a lot or maybe its just part of getting older. I can’t stand it! Everytime I sit down I can feel it bulge, if I wear pants with an elastic waste it starts to roll over. Fat is disgusting. I’ve been skinny all my life and I’m defintely not used to having it.
I want to be hyooge eventually like, two hundred and something punds. So my question is, do I need to learn to live with this disgusting blubber, until I gain enough to realistically start thinking about cutting? Will it die on its own as I start lifting more? I tried a rowing machine for 10 min. last time I went to the gym and kinda like it. Would adding 15-20 min of cardio after weightlifting help me decrease my fat gain or will it just sabotage my muscle growth.
I’d really appreciate the input of the learned. . . .
