If you are a) eating healthy resl food , not processed junk and b) training hard and trying to get stronger every week, then you will not look like you got fat. As long as both of those things are taken care of you will be ok.
Besides which any fat you gain will take only a few weeks to get rid of, compared to months of gaining muscle.
Also, i think you mean your total calorie intake is 3000, not your surplus. [/quote]
Orite, thanks once again man
So how proportional is fat to muscle gain?
Does this mean I wont have to cut at the end?
There is nothing set in stone here man, because everyone is SO vastly different. Many can gain good, quality lean muscle with a lot less fat than others. Some people have to be meticulous with their diet and training where others can cruise by a little easier.
If you’re like 120 pounds, you have so far to go before you should be worrying about this. I would definitely focus on making sure of a few things,
1.) As mentioned above, keep getting stronger. Eat. Period.
2.) Make sure your PANT’S WAISTLINE continues to fit without issue. The mirror can be deceiving and screw with you (you see yourself every day,) more often than pants sizing is a very underrated aspect to keep an eye on. This should dictate and be a good reminder of your current level of leanness.
3.) You need to take your shirt sizes, and probably wear two sizes more than you do now before you should really worry about this. I honestly have no idea how tall you are but the fact is is that unless they’re little hipster girls or something, most girls won’t really care how lean you are if you’re not supporting a noticeable amount of muscle.
Just my .02 but seriously, this shit takes a long time and requires a lot of patience and fortitude.
