Gaining weight after a diet when trying to build muscle is something that a lot of people stress out about
(especially us women)
Most can accept that they need to be in a surplus for significant hypertrophy yet don’t want to gain weight.
In this podcast I go through how much weight you can expect to gain (using myself as an example and also people starting from higher body fat levels)
I discuss what the optimal body fat% is for building muscle,
Realistic rates of muscle growth,
Quite a large side track into leptin haha,
The mindset around building muscle and that it may feel uncomfortable- lean into discomfort.
