I've recently went from 190lbs to 200lbs in over a 2 month period. My lifts have gone up...Previous PR on clean was 252lbs (December) that went up 264lbs (Jan) and I PRd 274lbs last week. Is this a good progression with the weight gain. I'm still a noob at this...lol. My snatch and jerks are limited due to my rotator cuff injury. I've been slowly able to do light weight on both.

I hope I don't sound like some spoiled kid....I know that weight gain will help strength gains...but for the extra 10lbs I was expecting more I guess.

*title should say .....When can I see some Strength Gains...lol

I am not sure what you're asking. You start off by saying you've got some pretty good gains, and then ask when you'll start seeing gains.

Yea...kinda confusing. Sorry. I guess this thread can go away.

If your sinclair at this weight is higher than when you were lighter, then you improved.
