  • question on gaining

    well....seeing as i am gaining... scale says i have 16% bf so by and by i prolly have closer to 19 so i think i can start lifting again. my question is when youre gaining weight(as a good thing)what is the ratio of fat gain to muscle gain? im pretty sure you cant gain muscle without some attached fat especially as a girl with hormones and all.

    does anyone know?

    I think there are alot of variable like stress levels, protein/calorie intake, stuff like that. I wouldnt know where to start.
    "I know what my body needs and what it can handle. There's no better way to achieve my goal than what im doing now. If my regimen leads to my death, be it in six days or six months...I will die fullfiled. The outcome is irrelavent so long as i steer towards my fate. If death is to be my prize, i welcome it with open arms."

        Why do you think your BF is higher than what your scale says?

          Depends on your diet, overall caloric intake, food partitioning and workout schedule. I would hope that an increase of around a 2:1 ratio of muscle to fat to be a good result. 2 lbs a month would probably be the ceiling for actually muscle fiber gain, and in a woman that would be an accomplishment I would think. This is also interesting. http://jcem.endojournals.org/cgi/con...ull/83/12/4382
