>tfw 7% bf before starting to lift (skeletor mode)
>tfw gained 8kg of muscle in about 5 months
>tfw also gained some fat, almost 13% bf now
My face is starting to get fat and my brain is just shouting "fuck it all, just drop this lifting shit and get a single digit bf again."
I have no idea what to do /fit/... I have a gf but I don't feel as attractive now.
Give me advice, pls.
you also didnt gain 8kg of muscle in 5 months retard unless you are on gear
a normal human being gains ~4-5kg in his first years of lifting (of actual lean body mass incl noob gains) .. cut this number in half for your 2nd year.. can be exceeded with super human genetics to maybe 7kg but thats the 0.0001% with perfect diet and schedule, sleep and all that
for comparison .. Hodge Twins gained 25 lbs of muscle of the course of 4 years
self diagnosed or did you make a proper scan? pics? were you anorexic or something?
Well, I began lifting weighing 50kg with 6,9% bf (46,5kg lean mass) (and yes, it was properly scanned and measured, wasn't self diagnosed).
I now weigh 62kg with 12,8% bf (54kg lean mass).
Won't that fuck with my gains?
Man, I have no reason to be lying.
I don't have any before pics and my gains aren't really that noticeable aesthetically wise. My shoulders just got wider, my biceps/triceps got like three times bigger, my lats got bigger too. Some decent gains on the upper chest and legs as well.
But then again, I was literally a skeleton.
I've been eating about 400cal above maintenance (about 2600 in total) and protein shakes.
Thing is, even though I got fatter, I still fit in a 28 waist.
I do have fat in the lombar region and lower stomach.
the thing is what you are describing is physically pretty much impossible in 5 months
so you are either get the wrong measurements or you are lying lol
why do you get 2 dexa scans in 5 months? are you under supervision by doctors?
Also if you are worried about your bf then eat less it's not fucking rocket science
Yeah, I guess. I'm really self conscious but I'll probably just start doing cardio so I can marginally burn some fat while still gaining the biggest amount of muscle I can.
That whole caloric deficit seems a bit complex.
Thanks for the advice anon.
