Beginner weight gains

Post  Drew on Tue Jun 08, 2010 11:59 am

Beginner muscle gains first year if training and consistency is at leasy reasonably good are usually 10-35 lbs, with 40 lbs not being unheard of. Best case scenario is you gain 40 lbs. That 3.3 lbs of muscle a MONTH. No one expects a beginner to just gain muscle, so lets say for each 2 lbs of muscle you gain, you gain a lb of fat. That puts you at 5 lbs each MONTH. And yes, the majority of the weight will come in the first 3-6 months and taper from there. So it becomes pretty obvious that if you are gaining more than 2 lb a week even at the brand newbie stage over time (Yes, you may have some weeks where you go up 2-3 lbs, but if the average over 3 months or so is more than 2 lbs a week) you will get very fat indeed. 2 lbs a week is 96 lbs in a year and maybe 1 in 10,000 gain 50 lbs of actual muscle the first year, so 2 lbs a week, even if you are one in 10,000 or so (that is just a guesstimate) will result in you gaining 50 lbs of FAT. You won't be happy with those results.
