    34 lbs in 4 weeks? Is this possible?


    I wasn't sure exactly where to post this since it covers both exercise science and nutrition. This guy claims to have gained 34 lbs. of muscle in 4 weeks. Thoughts? Phony? Miracle?

    it is possible with proper diet and nutrition...but i usually only see 34 lbs in either 1) teens way under their potential that hit a growth spurt and eat alot and lift or 2) people way under their potential that run a good first mass cycle when their androgen receptors are firing hot and fresh.... and they pack it on with good diet and training. But as far as someone like me at 200 packing on 34 lbs of solid lean muscle? no. prolly the most I can hope for right now is 15-20 on Test/Tren/ Anadrol/Dbol type of combinations/stacks.

    This is some major Bs. Is this supposed to be some sort of joke. I read this on Digg earlier. The body fat loss I could believe, but the 34lbs of additional mass.... a pound of fat is 3500 cals.. How many cals does it take for a body to add a pound of muscle tissue, jeezz. And he did it with "a ton of protein" oohhh yea and 4 of those 28 days he had a 50% cal deficient.. just stupid

    I don't beleive the human body can produce more than a pound of muscle a day. Mountain Gorillas possibly? I think polar bears likely. Blue whales absolutely! Humans, uh no i don't think so.

    I was more curious whether it would be possible with the program he specified. I tried the Arthur Jones flavor of HIT he speaks of and got little else besides a gut for my troubles. Also, does anyone know if there is any validity to his periodic cutting of calories to increase protein sensitivity theory?

    First, without going to the site I would want to know how they measured the 34 pounds of solid muscle and how much additional fat in the total weight gained. My first response is bull****, through and through.

    Impossible to gain that much muscle in that time period.

    It's possible to gain that amount of weight, however with an AAS in use, it's going to be a lot of water...ie eat lots of salt and high GI carbs on a D-bol cycle and you'll swell up like a balloon.

    So no, it's not muscle and I doubt he kept it all for very long if that was the case.

    Oh, and I forgot to mention, all of this was done with two 30-minute workouts per week, for a total of 8 HOURS of gym time:

    With NO-Xplode, the Cell-Tech/Nitro-Tech stack, and the new Aplodan, he could've seen those gains pretty much overnight.
