In light of the extreme focus this board has in regards to the 'body beautiful' (and the frustration that results in people not 'getting results fast enough'), I thought I would create a sticky that changed the focus a little.... This is a thread for posters to use to recognise 'every day'...

Angry Weight gain/nutrition/lifting

I am wondering about weight gain during lifting. I currently am following the Jamie Eason's Livefit trainer. I am on phase 2 right now.

How does this split look?
