Default Heated Debate...How much muscle mass

So here's the debate...and it's heated.

I stated on another forum that it is possible for a newb to gain 3 to 5 pounds of muscle the first 2 week of training, if they are using a proper bulking protocol, and being trained correctly.

Another trainer said that he had never seen this in all the years he'd been training.

My point is this...if you take a noob, have him eat 5000-6000 calories a day for 2 weeks, he will gain 7-10 pounds or so over 2 weeks. Research reveals that short term bulking can yield a 60-70% weight gain of muscle. Of course, this can't happen indefinitely...

But the debate is heated...what say you?
