    This means lifting everyday or two, eating lots and resting heaps.
    How much weight does everybody who actually does this gain within a 6 month period?

    I think I've only put on 6kg which is underwealming, is this normal or am I not pushing myself hard enough? :hs:


    EDIT: meant to say 6kg instead of 6lbs which is about 12lbs i think.

    Depends, I put on about 6 pounds as well in a 4 month period. Just means you're likely gaining LBM slowly instead of massive fat gain as well, if you're numbers are going up, I wouldn't worry about it too much, although I think i put on too little, IM going to up the cal's and aim for 12 pounds in the next 4 months.

    this is how my weight works

    i life consistantly for a few months to a year, i lose weight, then gain alot back in muscle.

    then i stop

    i gain weight, ending up weighing more than when i started lifting months ago.

    so

    if that 6 mos is at the end of a lifting cycle, i could put on 20-30lbs

    if it's at the beginning of a lifting cycle, i'll come out about even.

    Can't gain shit.. Maybe 1-2lbs a month if I'm lucky..then again, that "eating more" part is kinda tough for me.

    Everyone's different. I could eat perfectly clean until the point where i feel full, and put on 1-2lbs a week easy.
