I've been struggling to put on any mass all summer. I started summer at 136 lbs in 2 months I struggled to get up to 138 and hold there. I was lifting hard on a good routine and taking in crazy amounts of calories and protien. I never missed a day with good heavy eating, and I stuck to training 3 times a week.
This week I ate almost nothing, maybe 2000 calories a day (as opposed to the normal 4000) and my lifts went down a bit from the previous week. I even missed taking my daily serving of creatine on a couple days.
Anyways, I had a kick ass leg day today, my squat improved HUGE. At the end of the routine, I went to weight myself expecting the worst with the bad week of eating and all. I hadn't eaten much nor did I drink a lot of water during the training today. Somehow I am up to 140 lbs. Thats more than I've gained all summer in less than a week.
I dont understand, is my body putting on fat because its scared of not getting as much food as its used to? It should also be noted that I started school this week and I havent been working, therefore less active. Whats the deal with cheat days for bulking? haha
