    Getting stronger while of cut killing my newbie gains?

    I started lifting with progressive overload, and I’m making a lot of progress. I added 90lbs to my squat. Currently 205. I added 15lbs to bench press. Currently 120lbs. Anyway, I know it’s not impressive, but it’s my progress.

    I’m improving my lifts each week, even though I’m losing weight. Am I gaining muscle? Because I feel like my overall body is getting smaller, but my lifts are going up. I want to know if I should keep lifting higher if I can, or if I should maintain it until my bulk.

    Yes you should lift as heavy as you can, because that way your body will prioritize holding on to muscle whilst losing weight. As a newb, it's also possible to gain some muscle whilst losing fat during a cut.

    So keep going, and keep lifting as heavy as you can. If you're losing fat you will start to feel smaller, your clothes will become too big, etc. Thats just the way it is. I bought smaller clothes and looked a lot better in them.
