How much muscle can you expect to gain in 3 months time?

Assuming you are completely natural without gear, what is a reasonable amount of muscle gain in 3 months time?

Obviously if you are bulking it may not be entirely muscle, but what would be expected weight gain if you workout everyday and eat plenty?

      5lbs of actual muscle would be impressive and easier if youre focusing legs. Itd be impressive as shit if its mostly upper you kimd of have to pick one to go hard on because legs make it difficult to go 100% on upper lifts as frequently.

      you gained 5 lbs of muscle and 25 pounds of fat and water. if you were underweight then it might look like muscle, and it might even have been a good thing that you put it on, but its not all muscle, not even close.

    If you worked your ass off in the gym, sleeping a lot, and were eating protein and micronutrient rich snacks around the clock you could probably gain around 8-10lb of muscle in 3 months. When you do something like that though, the plateau hits in a way that no other plateau could match

    i gained somewhere between 5-8 pounds of muscle with good training and nutrition and sleep. i started off quite lean at 6'2" and managed to stay lean throughout the entire time frame

    if you think 5-8lbs doesn't seem like much, imagine 5 of those packages of hamburger strapped to your body with rubber bands.

    the big difference comes when you compound this for a year straight, then do that for 5 years, and now you've gained 100lbs of muscle.

      Muscle gains aren’t linear, and that curve flattens sooner than later

      • 3 weeks ago

        obviously the curve flattens. normally once that happens you sauce up your gains and continue gaining.

        i was simply trying to give OP an idea of the long-term vision of gaining muscle, because chances are the figures being quoted to him appear underwhelming.

    The typical range for muscle mass added in one years time is 15-25 lbs. if you're completely new and untrained, and do everything right. Divide that by 4 and you get 4-6 lbs. And that comes with a few lbs. of body fat as well. You always add fat when you gain muscle.

    If I never had shoulder injuries I'd be massive. How is this even possible.

    I've never heard of one person who can easily get weight up but shoulder pain and being afraid of injury keeping them from gaining to my extent. I've just taken to heavy drinking because muscle growth is not the issue and it relaxes you and I can sleep more.

      btw anybody claiming otherwise is wrong. anybody claimig they gained significant amount of muscle in just 3months as natty is dyel and probably deluding themselves. it takes years.

      In three months you can realistically go from say 115x5 -> 275x5 squat and equivalent other lifts. That's substantial progress.

        no you cant. youre a moronic dyel. dont expect shit in 3 months as a natty. youre way off. im just telling you what it is so you dont get disappointed

          I already did it.
          If you literally just do SS for three months you will get to a 275-300 squat.
          It's not complicated. You can do the math if you want.

            im done here. Dont expect significant natty muscle gains in just 3months (unless we're talking muscle memory). Theres no debate. Im right and anyone who disagrees is absolutely wrong. Without a shadow of a doubt, 100%. End of story.

              I made significant progress too, with visible growth. I'm thinking it depends on genetics and whether or not you dive straight into a serious program instead of just fricking around.

                Pretty sure this is the reason, people just dont want to work hard enough and then blame anything and everything else than themselves.

                Not a ton even with good genetics. Noticeable changes? Sure. But nothing like people imagine because the standard has been set by people who are
                >not natty
                >lying about how long it took them
                Also you can gain BACK a lot of muscle especially on gear in 3 months time, which is vastly different than building it up for the first time. Muscle memory is a very real proven phenomenon. This also has skewed the idea of what’s possible during a short timeframe

                Aware of that, trained legs for sport years ago and they blew up in like two weeks of lifting again. But upper body wasn't seriously trained before and went well in 3 months. Maybe knowing how to train hard from prior leg work was a factor, but you could get most of that from a coach or youtube. How many people do 3 sets to failure on day 1?

    u should gain just below kg or 2lb if u never touched weight in ur life a month. granted u dont slack

      Why does this stupid broscience myth persist? It's obviously not true for anyone who's actually lifted hard.

      First year of training, about 3-5kg of lean muscle mass. 5kg is absurdly high elite top 0,000000000000000001% genetics with literally nailing everything perfect from day zero to day 360. Realistically the first 3 months at the gym... Around 1kg of lean tissue.

      Again I have to generalize here, I dont think you will be nailing everything perfectly, you might be spinning your wheels, you might progress the first 6 weeks then stall 7th week maybe even lose some gains because you got seasonal flu, joint pain etc. No idea of your genetics, training intensity, etc.

      You can gain a lot of water weight and fat and make great neurological adaptation and your lifts can increase significantly during the first 3 months but its not gonna be a lot of lean tissue.

      Fuuuuuuuuuuucking moron

      you gained 5 lbs of muscle and 25 pounds of fat and water. if you were underweight then it might look like muscle, and it might even have been a good thing that you put it on, but its not all muscle, not even close.

      >durrrr
      WHY? What makes you so confident of this? Some study that you've never actually read?
      I went from having no physique to having a physique. That's not the result of 20 lbs of fat.

    12 weeks? 6 lbs of lean tissue max. Assumes you're un/detrained, if you've already put on 15+ lbs in your life you're not going to sniff that.

    The secret to putting on size during a bulk is focusing a main lift and not goimg too hard on arms and shit the day before doimg a hard bench day.

    Or extend your bulk by eating mainly protein amd fat on off days and limiting carbs to a few hours before and right before lifting. But during a bulk leave no muscle unworked for more than it has to so youre always building muscle.
