    I've been seriously lifting for 2 months now on a compound movement routine. However, my waist has got stick thin and the midsection is not built up yet (i had a fair bit of fat around the area before) and all the weight has seemed to be added up top and on the legs. Is this normal? (sorry if this sounds quite noobish, i've been eating 500-700 cals above maintainence so hopefully this is standard?) It just looks weird when i'm still thin.

    What's the problem with a small waistline from an aesthetic point of view? It gives you a bigger V-taper, which is all to the good.

    Exactly, what's there to worry about?
