1) Long term dedication. (At least 2-3 years minimum commitment)
2) They improved their strength dramatically during this time.
3) Dedication to an eating plan, whatever this plan may be.
They are super-committed, highly motivated, rarely miss workouts, know what they are eating and when they are eating it, and have progressed in strength.
I've chronicled over 300 bodybuilders and top fitness models and to a T every one of them has a crazy level of commitment. I've never met one that didn't know how many calories they were generally eating each day. Guessing is never a part of their equation, whether it be training or diet.
My focus is to get people focused on these basics. Without them I know they will probably fail at building a lot of muscle. Beyond that, past the first couple years of training, I'll let the more advanced guys guide them with studies, etc., and advanced training concepts.

Nothing is ever simple and anything simple can be made complex, if someone decided to make it so (Number 1...couldn't resist, sorry )
But, lifting more, whether via volume or heavy load, coupled with eating more, should always in theory work for anyone to put lean mass on; as for lift big to get big, nope...there are loads of big people around, that have the eating part sussed, but they don't lift.

the progression side of things that btb was talking about is very true i have only learned how to progress in weight about 7 odd months ago by reading steve articles over at muscle and strength,until then any previous weight training i had done was a waste of time.
