So i was on first Stronglifts and then switched to SS, but recently took a 2 month "break" because of exams and a vacation following that.
I'm back at it again, 4th week and my lifts as of today are:
Squat: 87,5 kg (193 lbs)
Deadlift: 105 kg (231)
Bench Press: 53,5 kg (118)
Overhead Press: 36 kg (79)
Power Clean: 42,5 kg (94)
My PR 3x5 squat is 97,5 before i took the break. I'm climbing back up there, but dammit it's hard!
Deadlifts are doing okay.
Bench Press and Overhead Press are tough since i had rotator cuff surgery 1,5 years ago, so i'm increasing by 1,25 kg (2,5) instead of the normal 2,5 kg (5).
Power Clean is doing great, love that exercise as opposed to barbell row that i used to do.
That's my info. My problem is that eating a lot to keep up with the program has gotten me a nice little belly. I wasn't skinny to start with (just "normal"), so that doesn't help either.
I've gained a lot of muscle too, and i think you really notice it, but I've grown from a size 32" in jeans/pants to 36", which is some i had lying around from way back, when i was a little fat.
I think it's getting a little out of hand; don't wanna get an entire new wardrobe, or in general just look fat.
I hadn't considered GOMAD until recently, when i realized the Weight Gainer i was using, was way too expensive. It's called Mutant Mass (seems like i can't post links)
I did 2 servings = 8 scoops a day = 2100 kcal.
My question is, if the somewhat big amount of sugar in this weight gainer could have caused this annoying fat gain, or if the same would have happened with milk (i realize it's mainly about calories, but still)?
Also, what are my options now, if i wanna be able to use my "old" / "normal" clothes again?
Do i have to give up gaining strength for a while to cut away some of this fat, and just try to maintain strength?
I guess i should still be rolling on some newbie gains, so that's why i'm not sure of how this is gonna work.
Thanks in advance
