I have lost about 100 pounds over the past few years, focusing primarily on weight loss. Now that I have lost the weight, and I look kind of scrawny underneath what was fat, I'm trying to gain muscle mass.
I can't see a change in my appearance, at least not yet, because I have only gained 10 pounds since I started attempting to gain muscle, and if anything, I am more toned in my arms, but my pants are getting tighter again!
I have been doing the following exercises among others:
- Back extensions
They all target the area around where I wear my pants; is this normal for muscle gain to make a noticeable difference in 2-3 weeks on waist/hip size for pants?
The difference isn't even one belt notch yet, but I am hyper-aware of how my pants fit.
