    pound of muscle a week???


    ok...question..a friend of mine think that he can put on a pound of pure muscle
    per week by just having a clean diet and exercise program. He said he wont be using
    any steroids or supplements...i quickly disagreed saying its impossible to do so without
    ph or steroids. Now how many pounds of muscle (not mass) do you think a person could put
    on in month by just having a clean diet?

    i would think 1 lb of muscle is reasonable as long as he knows what he's doing, i.e. diet, rest, training, etc.

    You mean per MONTH if he's FAR from any plateau or genetic limit, as in n00b, right?

    yeah, per month. depends on his experience level too. if he's new, it'll happen much faster.

    i'd settle for 12lbs of solid muscle, no fat per year. i'd really only want about a year and a half of that total. 240 is my weight limit

    I do lift. I lift your fat ass mom off of me when I'm done stickin' it to her. That's right, It's all fun and games until someone's momma gets insulted.

    Your calves are so small, you have to turn sideways to know that they are there.

    the rule of thumb is.. 10lbs of muscle in a year and you had a VERY good year.

    He can if.... he used to be really big, and just shrank. For 20 weeks or so I believe it is possible.

    You guys remember the Colorodo expieriment? Oh man I am dating myself here.

    I'm with refried on this. If he was big at one time and hasn't trained in 6 months he will gain a lot back quickly through muscle memory. But you are just getting back what you had. Not adding anything new. As far as adding 1lb. new a week....if he does I want his diet!!!

    Do you remeber the Colorodo expieriment?

    I bet Creao's buddy does. I have a friend that did this to make money off a bunch of newbs at the gym. He was out of the gym for a years or so, and shrunk. Je showed up like a newby talking ****, made bets and blamo...Kinda like a pool shark, but with iron. Iron shark?

    Never tried that. The gym I use to train at before I moved was as hardcore as they come. Not a good place to talk crap...lol.. there was a lot of tempers in there..chemically enhanced. and most of them were really big and strong. one training partner was 280 with abs.. bounced at a lot of the popular NYC clubs.. never had to wait in line to get in to the popular places..man i miss that.. but I could probably hustle some of the kids now.They still can't figure how my strengeth is climbing so fast. just back 2 months after 4 month layoff.

    That afternoon, we talked about "The Colorado Experiment," which took place in May, 1973. In the course of four weeks and 14 workouts, Viator gained 63 pounds of muscle and lost 18 pounds of body fat. He began at a bodyweight of 167 pounds at 14 percent body fat. Twenty-seven days later, he weighed 212 at two and a half percent body fat! His muscle gain averaged four and a half pounds per workout. At the end of May, he was at or very near the best condition of his life. Even considering the fact that his bodyweight was artificially low before beginning, it is a startling gain. (By referring to his bodyweight as artificially low, I mean his calories had been restricted, since he wasn't working out: he lost a finger in an industrial accident and then had a severe allergic reaction to the antitetanus injection -- training was the last thing on his mind for four months.)
