    Depends on where a person is in their training career
    I lost 20 pounds...How? I drank bear piss and took up fencing. How the **** you think, son? I exercised.

    Everyone is different , but I would say if a person gains 5lbs a year they are doing good.

    Personally I started at 165lb a long time ago, but in 2005 when I did a bodybuilding show I was 215lbs at 9.5% ( dieted down to 170).

    Since then I have made the switch to powerlifting and I now weigh 245lbs , maybe 14-15% bf (best guess).

    This is being about 75% stricked with my diet and training.

    I do agree with Nate because I prob went from 165-185 my first year training it gets harder the more advanced you become. I think I could gain 20lbs of fat in a year without trying very hard

    I agree with that video, i'm pretty sure he is talking about going from NO training, EVER, to then training 3-5 years. We all know huge gains can be made when a person first starts lifting, not to mention if they are squatting and deadlifting! Most people if they are athletic and lean with no weights I would say are like 170lb, average height too. If gifted at normal height maybe 185 11%bf doing nothing other then cardio. 30lb on that is 215 11%.. Doable I would say. I could see average people putting on 15lb on their legs alone, not to mention lower back thickness just from squats and deadlifts.

    Age is a big factor too. I put on 50lbs (maintaining same bf) over 5 years. I'm glad I started as a teen.

    Nice!
    Growing strong mentally is the tough part in this game. Muscle strength increases way easier.

    Depends,as long you put the right work load in and eating habits you'll head to muscle stardom.

    I went from 130 at 6ft to 200 at the same height natural from the ages of 17-20. Am I a freak? Not at all, there could be factors with puberty in there also. I was the hardest of the hard gainers when I started and as weak as a girl. My theory is most People who train eat like pussies.

    I have been training boxing for the last couple of years and now I hover around 170. I started doing MMA recently and decided to start bulking again. I gained five pounds naturally in a week. Probably gained mostly water, but I bet I will be back up to 200 in the next couple of months, then it shall be juice and t-3 time.
