I’ve had this question for a bit, not sure if I posted it before but apologies if I did.
I started getting back into heavy lifting this past November. I’m on the 5/3/1 routine and lifting twice a week. I’ve put on about 9lbs since starting the routine (206lbs to 215lbs), granted some of that is fat due to the holidays.
As backstory, I started cycling May of 2018 but didn’t start structured training until about May of 2019. Prior to cycling, my main form of exercise was powerlifting 3X a week and crossfit-type HIIT workouts. I never paid attention to weight until now.
Is it normal to put on this much weight so quickly? It’s only been 2 months since Im started lifting again. Also, I am significantly more hungry now that I’m lifting. I normally fast from 8pm to 11:30am the next day, but I’m finding it really hard to do that without having a fuzzy brain throughout the morning.
Any thoughts? Thank you all in advance!
