    Yes, Patricky I've been trying to gain weight for a while, up until August I stayed at 130 or below which was terrible so I've gained 20 pounds. I'm think I'm gonna get up as close to 170 pounds though out the winter months while getting my numbers up, then cutting down when I can get back on my road bike and do 40 mile rides. Best cardio I've ever experienced. The bulk of my training now is performing the big 3 (bench, squat, deadlift) and some isolation work on the triceps shoulders and calves.
