Hey Mark! My friend used to be overweight and I mean really big, now he's losing weight and I see that he has gotten bigger too. For me I had to Bulk to optimize muscle growth. How is it that he's gotten bigger while in a caloric deficit? 

Thank You For Your Time! 

Newbie gains! When people are not in shape, they have beginner gains. The longer you've been training, the harder it is to make gains.
