    Gaining weight, training hard but losing strength = Plateau or overtraining?

    What do you guys think. Ive gained about 15lbs in 4 months during this clean bulk, but now seemes that I am going in reverse in terms of gaining strength. I am also not noticing very much fat gain. I am currently talking in about 3000 calories split 40/40/20 (C,P,F). Do you think I should up the calories?

    How could we possibly answer this without knowing what your routine is?

    Why is everyone on this board obsessed with the idea that they're overtraining? Do you guys all have AIDS or something?

    What is your progression mechanism? How do you measure progress?

    Also, why so many high rep sets? Do you expect to get stronger forever on sets of 10? Perhaps you've reached a point where you can no longer increase strength on such a light load?

    Well, you've started about 4 months ago and you're probably building muscle that wasn't that developed in the first place, and the most prominent amount of muscle gain over time occurs as a beginner. You might not notice the extra bodyfat because you are filling out your frame a little. If you are gaining weight, I wouldn't necessarily seek to gain even more weight unless you are really lean. You do appear to be somewhat lean, however, so it probably won't hurt to increase your calories.

    Your doing great on your transformation so far, you are probably just too familiar with the workout routine. Change your exercises or at least the weight and reps. Try some HIIT, or more exercises that target multiple muscles. Mix it up a bit and you will see your body continue to adapt when you challenge it, awsome work so far I'm impressed!
