    is gaining .6 pounds of muscle in a month bad?

    My age is 26 and I have been training 5/6 times a Week for 40/45mins mainly including supersets.

    Pretty disappointed to only have gained .6 pounds seeing as the average it says online is 1pound - 2pound a month.

    I take a protein shake after each workout and mainly base my diet around protein foods so I believe I am getting the correct intake.

    Am I just overthinking this? is .6 pounds in a month alright for someone who goes 5/6 times a week?

    Thanks

    Pretty sure there is no method short of an autopsy that could measure muscle to that degree of precision...

    I'm guessing you are using a BIA device. Just ignore it. Focus on long term progression and gaining just enough weight to keep it moving.

    LMAO, my weight will vary 6-8 lbs during the day and you are somehow able to determine you gained .6 lbs of muscle in a month.

    I typically weigh myself every 2 days right after my morning piss. Being consistent on the time of day is best for accuracy. Because weight can fluctuate so much I like to chart my progress so I can see accurate trends.

    Weight is only one of the many measurements you should track. Once a week I track: weight, body fat, neck size, shoulders, arms, chest, waist, hips, thighs, and calfs.

    By doing this you can understand if you put on good weight or bad and understand where the gains are occurring

    It sounds like you're doing a good job on working out and living a healthy lifestyle. Try not to worry about the numbers and focus on the long term results based on how you feel and the overall change in your physique. This has helped me in my own journey!
