It exists for sure but not at the level people think and it is certainly nowhere near the boogeyman that McRobert* and Mentzer suggest it is. It seems as if you would have to push to the limit of your abilities for a reasonably long time to achieve it and frankly, few people have the mentality to do that.

As Steve and Fazc consistently point out (and Steve on the post above), overreaching is more common and is something that can be alleviated by common sense programming.

*Incidentally, I recently read that McRobert thinks a 300 bench, 400 squat and 500 dead is almost the maximum limit for a 'hardgainer'.
