Greetings my fellow wise men,
For starter, I'm pretty new at being a real man, aka, i have always trained with 60% load, in the 8-10 range, with too many isolation exercises, never trained the big compounds and lower body workout was something close to mythology. In other words, i was an average gym fag.
But this was until i discovered TNation and started growing a pair.
I have now been training for a little bit more than 2 months, 3 to 4 times a week, heavy loads, in the 5 to 6 reps range.
My workout are mainly: Squats (the deep ones, below parallel), deadlifts, power clean, dumbell snatches, bench press (flat+inclined), military press, rows, weighted dips and pull ups.
Now the "strange" thing is: I feel i'm getting stronger, and the increasing weights i use confirm the feeling. i keep gaining weight (about 8lbs now) but size doest not seem to change... it even looks like i m getting thinner.. or maybe leaner ?
Nutrition wise, i eat clean and nutritious food, with regular protein intake.
So my question is basically, Am i doing something wrong? Did anybody have a similar experience (gaining weight but no size)?
I'm 6"2 and currently around 208-210lbs.
