You probably have gained some muscle with increased strength work, also increased blood volume is often cited as a reason to gain up to a couple extra pounds especially as you are ramping up training to new loads.
Hi I recently used a scale which I don’t normally do, but was interested. The result was 183lb and last I checked was late summer before my current transition phase which yielded 175lb. In the recent period I’ve been doing much more strength training than during the summer. So I’m not surprised by the gain. I typically fluctuate 3-5lbs a day but not 10lbs. Is it typical to gain some weight in transition/base phase and just shed it during performance/race phase? Thank you.
