    Gained 7kg in 1.5 months while lean bulking [Question]

    So I'm 17 and last summer I was doing a cut and ended up being pretty lean, I was about 177cm, 71kg and got a scan and it said I was 6.9% body fat. It was probably more about 8% comparing myself to pictures and stuff but oh well. So I was busy and stopped going to the gym around august, I decided I should go to the gym again at the end of december, I was about 73.5kg back then ( I guess I was about 14% body fat). I lost a bit muscle and gained some fat since the summer.

    So to gain my strength back I went on a lean bulk, we're now 1.5 month later and I now weigh 80kg. Never did a bulk before but I can't imagine that it's possible to gain that much in just 1.5 month. I document my progress with pictures and looking at the before and the after pictures I believe that most of it is actually muscle and that I might have gained like 1 or 2% body fat. Also my gym performances went up a LOT.

    What do you think? Is there anyone who experienced the same?

    PM me for pics
    Edit: Look at my profile and you'll some before and after pics, I know that the first lighting is ****ty.

    Good job and a good example of muscle memory. You've gained overall body fat but you've gained a good amount of muscle. It's a good time to take advantage of your teen test+calorie surplus+muscle memory and make this a good bulk while you're making easy gains. Hope you're lifting heavy and not neglecting your legs ... keep up with the bulk but ease back a little on the cals and don't make this a 'dreamer'

    ^^what he said. Muscle memory, water retention, and full intestines from eating in a surplus can make a dramatic difference in scale weight...but the look in the mirror is what counts, and you're on the right track.

    (When I came back to lifting after a 17 year layoff, I gained about 15 pounds in 2 months, and my bodyfat went down...muscle memory and "newbie gains" are a wonderful thing.)
