Re: Been gaining weight since I turned 25
That's fine honestly assuming you're relatively fit. I know someone whose 5'9'' and at their peak shape they were probably 170-175 (looked a lot more athletic), could bench 185 or so etc do decent weightlifting without much effort at all. Granted this dude started off really fat as a kid. Now he's about 7 years older and around 195, looks out of shape but can probably still bench 185 with ease and probably max a rep at 225. Doesn't really take care of his body but you can tell by lifting with him, there is a good amount of muscle under all that gained weight/fat.
