I lift, train combat sports, and am interested in any physical or outdoor culture.

comment Weight training without putting on fat
@jontyc That's really it's own question, and quite a good one. The start of an answer is that I've seen 3x5 work quite well for novices trying to gain weight and for novices trying to stay the same weight but get way stronger. Maybe you should look into non-novice programming like 5/3/1 or Olympic weightlifting style routines that use lower rep ranges. But diet is always going to be central.

@jontyc Depending on the definition of "heavy" I don't think that's true--consider Dimitry Klokov, Pyrros Dimas, or really any powerlifter or Oly lifter in the lower weight classes. Maybe measuring body measurements instead of scale weight would help, but the primary thing is that you need to focus on diet.

@jontyc Your strength workouts will become less effective in such a scenario, and regardless you'll still be gaining some fat whenever you're on a surplus. I've conditioned my language, I apologize for the confusion.

@Doc Only to read the literature or find a coach. Routines are a dime a dozen, but the devil is in the details, which aren't communicable over this medium.

I would, yeah. The mechanics are going to be wonky either way, but the Smith machine...ech.
