I've been going to the gym for 5 weeks now, my height is 5'7 and I started at lbs and I'm currently lbs. I'm wondering if this is too much weight for the time frame or is this in the right area?
I know that it takes time to put on muscle so I'm anxious about putting on too much fat to start with. Speaking from personal experience, the only way to minimise fat gain for the genetically-unlucky is to bulk slowly. One of the obvious problems facing those new to bulking and new to lifting, is that it simply isn't possible to push your body hard enough to warrant developing muscle when you're just learning to lift.
Programmes like Stronglifts rightly call for weeks of learning form; during which period bulking will likely result in fat. Early fat gains might actually look flattering for us skinny folk, but it's ultimately counter-productive. My advice, as painful as it is to slow down, use the first month to benchmark your starting weight, hit the gym consistently and make sure you're adding weight each week, and add calories slowly. You need the fuel most when the weights get heavy; not when you're just starting.
Hi, thanks for the advice. I was thinking about slowing down too so confirmation is nice. I've been coming on in leaps and bounds when it comes to adding weight on lifts so I think I'll have a clearer view on things in another month when it settles down. No most of the gains can be fats too. This is just the first 5 weeks so don't be that alarmed. I've been hitting the gym myself and gained about 14 lbs in 3 months so I was worrying about the same thing.
What really got my attention is that I started walking unbalanced suddenly and I don't know if it's because the body didn't adjust to the gains or something completely different and more worrying?? I also get dizzy quite often since I started started going to the gym. I started considering cardio and I hope it will balance the crazy shit that is happening to me lately pains in the chest and head, sea-Lehman's dizziness without it affecting my gains.
I'm a little hypochondriac: Yeah your gains aren't worth that BP and trying heart rate man I'd recommend a lean bulk, it's a lot less satisfying short term but long term you have to cut less or not at all and you have more leniency with your diet which is awesome if you have a social life.
Plus you can forego all these bulking and cutting seasons and slow bulk all the way through until you're happy. Just stick with a surplus of like after daily cardio and conditioning and you'll be feeling better in a couple weeks.
No, your BP isn't terrible. It's more that I'm worried about your resting heart rate being 90bpm. I'm not that in shape cardio wise and my resting is around bpm.
I'd recommend starting, or continuing your fitness journey with an emphasis on good athleticism before you worry about huge gains. A ton of people myself included priorities include being swole and not much else and looking back I wish I had included a lot more conditioning into my life than I did, I'm a pitiful runner and it's annoying. The momentum is much harder to start now than it would have been if I had started when I started lifting and I regret it.
Being fit isn't necessarily about how much you can lift but being able to function at a high level in all aspects of life, so strong and fast is ideal. Also lean bulking will be satisfying when you never lose the abs you have from being skinny.
Some people put on weight easy, nothing to worry about unless your noticing increase in fat. Just pay attention to your diet and take progress pics weekly to keep eye on weight gain. Usually you see ton of weight gain starting out, then it slows down and you gotta really start working for every pound. Your bulking will slow down pretty sharply soon. When I started bulking a gained like 12 pounds in 2 weeks or something ridiculous, it's basically all water weight.
Lots of water weight, and food gains happen initially. Dude what are you eating? We are on the same height and same weight lbs!! I'm trying to get to then cut. Please tell me your workout and meal plan: Right now I'm learning it all. I don't have a meal plan I eat a lot of chicken but have all my life and I estimate calories to around 2. It's dirty to some extent. I've had the notion that I couldn't put on weight so I turned to pizza etc to start. Now I'm eating better, chicken, porridge all the good stuff.
Lol I was thinking a while ago to buy a whole pizza later and eat it. Maybe i should go dirty too with nutellas and stuff. What is your goal? Honestly I wanted to put on a bit of weight and look better. I had very little muscle mass when starting so the noobie gains have encouraged me and I don't particularly have a goal in mind.
