    to simplify something?

    if i'm gaining weight, and not gaining fat, no matter what way i train (as long as i'm doing weights on all major muscles) i'll get keep gaining muscle.

    this has to be right, even though i've majorily simplified it?

    Well, for this hypothetical situation in which you are gaining muscle without fat, then yes. However, the truth is, this is uncommon. After the initial beginner period in which it IS highly possible to put on a few pounds of lean muscle mass without adding much fat (if any at all), it becomes less likely to occur. Usually after the beginner stage there are two options,
    1) Bulk-Create a caloric surplus thus gaining weight (both fat and muscle)
    2) Cut-Create a caloric deficit thus losing weight (mostly fat, but some muscle loss is likely to occur).
    Of course, I am speaking of individuals who are not on steroids. If you are on steroids it is easier to limit fat gains while packing on lean muscle mass.

    What if you dont bulk or cut, you just maintain your body weight, can you still gain muscle?
