    For future reference/Fat gain

    Not sure where to post this so Iíll ask here. I am simply curious and thatís really the only reason Iím asking. Is it a real possibility to have a decent training routine and diet and move up in bodyweight at a conservative pace (.5-1lb weekly) and have most if not all of the gains be fat. If this is a real possibility what could be the potential circumstances surrounding this type of outcome? I feel like this is a good question and one that I have never seen posted before. I have seen posts about fat overload on dreamer bulks gaining 2-3 pounds a week and that answer is clear.

    Of course, diet alone does not promote muscle growth, you need adequate training stimulus for that. Otherwise it will just be fat

    What determines adequate training. Say you are doing a 5 day split. 2 legs days, one ham and one quad, a push, pull and upper while training hard and eating enough to gain .5 pounds a week. Then after 3 months you have nothing but 6 extra pounds of fat. Would it be simply a matter of you thought you were training hard enough but you weren't and every extra calorie went directly to fat instead of promoting any new lean tissue growth?
