I recently had hit a plateau so I took a week off, studied on this site and came up with a completly new rouitne with compound excercises versus the majority of isolation excercises i was doing before. I started eating more calories, getting enough protein, and this past week I gained about 5 lbs, I was 128, now I am 132.5 and I am 5'7 tall. I am wondering if you can gain muscle weight that fast or is it mostly fat, I don't do cardio and I was 128lbs for about 6 or 7 months. My arms have also gained almost a 1/2 an inch

You have probably gained 1 lb of muscle , 2 lbs of water and 2 lb of glycogen

Easy way to tell. Did your waist go up? Are your pants tighter?
