I've been basically doing MAB's two weeks cycling approach. I can tell you that my weight has stayed within a few pounds of when I started my log here in September. The difference is that I have added size to my frame in all areas.

I had made a note in my log last week about how I did not expect to see a gain in size this month because I had been working harder at just strength gains. Yesterday I taped my arms and thighs just to check things out.

Nov. 11 I took these readings

Weight... ....175lbs......173
Thighs ........23.25" .... 24
Waist .........35.25"..... 35
calves.........14.75"..... 15
Biceps ........15.25".... 15 7/16
Chest......... 41.25".... 44
Shoulders... 47"..........49
neck......... 15.5.........15.75

Nov. 28th I took these

left arm flexed 15.5"
thighs 24.5"
calves 15.25"


My weight has fluctuated througout this process by a few pounds over the course of the week. On average I weigh about 175. My strength is continually increasing. What this tells me is that I am doing a positive body re-comp.

You can't be afraid to gain a little fat, you can lose it fairly easily. It's much easier to lose fat than to gain muscle.
