Overall, 4-5 lbs in the first month of training itself, although this should have had some fat gains too.
Post noob stage, the most I have gained is at the rate of 1lb/week for 5 weeks (again, there was quite a bit of fat gain). At that time I was eating the most I ever ate in my life (including almost a gallon of milk a day), and was using a low volume program - Randall Strossen's 20-rep squat program in fact.
