Hey all,

I just started taking weight gain seriously about 3 months ago. Since then I've put on roughly ten pounds and definitely noticed a difference in muscle mass (thanks in a huge part to this forum).

Here's my problem. While I AM gaining muscle mass, I can also tell that I'm gaining fat. My skin looks loose and fatty around my pecs and stomach (it was tight before, although I was very skinny). In general I feel like I look good, but this issue really bothers me.

Right now I do heavy lifting 3 times a week with no cardio (I was under the impression that cardio would inhibit heavy weight gain). Would cardio help tighten my skin up? Is there a way to gain a lot and still look tight and fit while gaining?

Thanks a lot for any help, you guys have been great.

Greg.
