I've been weight lifting a lot lately (as opposed to just aerobic work) and I noticed some of my clothes fit tighter around my bicep/chest area.
is this because I am gaining muscle or am I just getting fat? I hope this isn't a stupid question, but I figure if I am weight lifting a lot more than I wouldn't be gaining fat in the are I am lifting around.

If you have been benching a lot more your chest will grow out kinda noticeably and biceps well if the sleeves are hugging your arms more than your just getting muscle, best way to figure out which is to test you max in things and see if you got better,if so than its muscle, you would especially get bigger muscles if you lifted heavy weights low reps as opposed to tone muscle through low weight lots of reps I doubt your getting fatter but if you like more loose clothing than you might want just tone or get new clothes.1
