People are often misguided into thinking that if your gaining weight you're gaining muscle. This is far from the truth, after a certain amount of caloric increase all you really do is put on fat, of course the weight on the scale goes up BUT so does your body fat percentage. Lets say you need around a 200 caloric surplus to gain muscle (i'm just using 200 as an example, the surplus you may need will be more or less) and you're consuming a 1000 calorie surplus, you're going to put on weight, but most of it will be fat.

In order to gauge progress in bodybuilding, focus on your bf %, not weight gain, if you have gained weight and your bf % is pretty much the same, congrats, you've gained muscle. Look at this chink for example: . (skip to 2:40). Dude is 5'10. How much do you think he weighs? 195? 200? Minimum 180 right? Wrong. He is only 152.
Now look at him here, at 190, .
Body fat % over weight boyos. Lower bf%, better face too.

Yes. Only thing that matters is how good you look. No one cares about weight.

Focus on gaining lean mass. That's the most important part. Rule of thumb:

Bodyfat% between 10-15%
BMI between 22-25

With those two requirements fulfilled, you've pretty much guaranteed yourself a decent physique.

FFMI is better. Should be between 19 and 23, very difficult to go above 23 as a natty. Most should aim for 22+.

Bmi and weight should only matter if you are just a fatass.
Or scrawny and lacking in muscle mass. Nothing turns a girl off more than a guy who is visibly skinnier than the average, in shape guy.
