Speed of gains question
Okay, sorry for the misleading title. I just wanted to ask you guys what you experience gaining has been.
Has it been slow and steady over the course of a certain routine? Or have you seen quick spikes in size for some reason or another? I ask because I’ve definitely seen spikes in size a few times - like in a week I’d get a visible increase on the tape measure that could not be a fluke, usually after starting a new routine.
Makes me wonder, how much of the “persistence is key” idea is really just bunk? Has anyone actually gained on the same routine after not gaining on it for a month? I got months without noticeable gains but then get spikes when I switch things up. Just think it is an interesting observation, that’s all. From all I know about plastic tissue deformation theory, this does not make scientific sense. I’d like to get other vets’ viewpoints on this.
