k... i see that i need to eat more and also get on the Rippetoe starting strength program. I've been reading a lot about it and i think i may like it better than isolation 5 days a week. Hopefully i will start seeing some gains sometime soon.

Haha it's cool. To cut, you'll have to create a caloric deficit. When people refer to "gaining mass", they are generally talking about lean muscle mass. Rippeto's SS will put some size on you. It should drastically increase your lean muscle mass. Of course, that depends on entirely on your diet. You could put on a lot of fat if you eat crap. Or you could eat clean and have a mild caloric surplus and put on muscle and a small amount of fat or even stay very lean. The diet is the most important factor...it's completely up to you. Read the stickies and educate yourself...then you can make that decision for yourself based on your goals.

You'll see gains strait away on the SS,as long as you eat and train properly.

Agreed. I love Rippetoe's Starting Strength, but the diet will determine your success with the program. Good luck
