I have recently had a 4 week base block steadily increasing TSS from 580 -> 770 and maxed out at 17hrs a week (im very used to 500+ TSS weeks)
This period was focused on base endurance specifically, with some sweetspot stuff to make up for “excess” volume on some days.
Before this period, my body weight has been around 70 kgs all year round without any decrement to performance or calorie counting and ate as I felt (I follow a wholefoods plant based diet).
After weighing myself yesterday (after a very easy rest week) I found myself at 76kg.
With no change in diet, I’ve gained 6 kilos and I’m not very happy with it.
On the other hand I’m pushing more Watts and breaking all my PBs.
After a 20 min test, I’m still 4w/KL but pushing more Watts with more weight.
Can someone tell me how this is weight gain possible? And how can I tweak my mentality to eat less (I feel very hungry if I reduce my meal sizes).
