I believe there was a similar thread about this before but I searched and couldn't find it. If someone could direct me to that thread or a similar one, I'd appreciate it.
Basically my situation is this:
I tried dieting. I rebounded, and gained all the weight back. I dieted again for 2 months and switched over to maintenance. I been here around 3 or so weeks. I am now training for performance so to speak. I want to lift big weights, but still have the abilty to run a mile and what not.
My exercise regimen is 3 fullbody workouts. 1 Day tabata HIIT, and then another day of sprints or a mile run on the track.
This leads to me a question. Is it possible to make significant gains in strength without gaining weight? I am kinda wary of gaining weight since summer is coming up and I more or less am comfortable with how my clothes fit. I mean, since im still a begginer, can I become strong(er) just following a simple plan without gaining weight or using something more complicated like westside?
