Well my primary aim is to put on muscle. If for that I have to lift heavy or eat more then I'll do it. But my main aim is to put on muscle.

Today's workout was easy. Just that squats are getting just a BIT tough. Rest was easy. Deadlift too. However, I can feel my back getting sore already :S

Well, I've finally managed to get some spare time to make this post to let you guys know how this program is running. I've been making progress on all the lifts. They seem to be moving away for the "easy" category now :P Squats are getting really tough and I will, hopefully, set a PR today

Along with that I do my pushups, abs, cardio and some minor bicep work.

Yeah, I did that. Plus, I'm thinking, since my weight gainer (universal Real Gains) is finishing this week to discontinue it and carry on with a regular ON 100% Whey Protein. That way I'd cut down on the carbs and the caloric intake.

There's only one thing I can adjust and that's the carbs I guess.

i dont think ur fat is so much and i think that if u want to get big and not have ur pants tight ur living a false reality. some amount of fat is going to be put on and u just have to accept it. trying to cut at a bodyweight lesser than mine is wasting time. but i will leave this for Eric to comment on because the guy has become a monster.

Well I know plenty about nutrition but when it comes to fat loss or management that is not an area I'm good in. But as was said in the other thread and what you have said, there is bound to be a little fat and you can just go by what the mirror tells you. Keep you protein up to at least 1.3 to 1.5 grams/lb....

But going over people's diet is not my thing. I just don't feel I am very good at it. There are plenty of other people who can answer you diet questions.

The problem is, Phobia, and I'm not trying to be mean, is that people answer you questions but you continue to ask the same one over and over. It comes to a point where people don't know what else to say.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

No offence taken. None at all

I'm just concerned 'coz the last time I was on Rippetoe, my waist shot-up and the same thing, I'm afraid, might happen this time around. I come from a family full of obese people and till now I've managed to stay away from that. So I just don't want to make the same mistakes again.

My protein intake is with the 1.5-2lbs range, I think I'll cut my carb intake a bit. I've already increased my cardio from 40 to 60 mins (2x week).

Thanks again. I really appreciate it.

3x5 Squats - 231 lbs (PR)
3x5 Benchpress - 121 lbs (PR)
1x5 Deadlift - 110

Abs workout = Leg-hip raise (3x15), Crunch (4x15), Vertical Hip Raise (3x15)

I think a better way to state my question would be that... ok fine I'm gaining fat and my weight is going up as well, how do I know if that's muscle or not and whether I should adjust my diet or not, putting aside the "look-in-the-mirror" idea.

Man, are you a vampire? Do you not cast a reflection? Why are you so dismissive to the idea that the way you LOOK is what really matters? Besides that then the only way to go is to get the accurate weekly bodyfat assesments.

But on the other thread you never said you didn't like the idea of looking in the mirror. You know? So if you tell people that you don't want to take their advice that will help to narrow down your options. Otherwise we'll just think you didn't hear what we said. I'm just saying this to help you get your answers.

If you must be that precise then bf measurements are the only real way to do it. The scale is bound to show little fluctuations and of course you could be gaining muscle weight. The problem is people have a lot of trouble with calipers.
