They'd look no different!
Are you serious? I said 3 lbs an year for their amateur career (6-7 years). This works out to a roughly 20 lbs lean mass gain by the time they turn pro. 20 lbs of lean mass makes hell of a difference. Again, please take note of this - NONE of the top level athletes built their body overnight. They have been at it for years, not just 6 months or 1 year.

Seriously though, I was under the impression you could gain muscle with minimal fat at around 1 to 2 pounds per month.
Yes, you CAN gain 1-2 lbs a month - especially during the newbie stage. But it doesnt work that way forever. After the first few pounds, muscle gains slow down quite significantly, especially if you are trying to avoid putting on fat.

not unless you are chemically enhanced.

Take 2 years off from looking good. Lift heavy, eat heavy, add 40lbs or so...then cut.

I was talking about pounds gained over all per month. 1-2 pounds of overall weight gain a month been good for minimal fat gains.


I misunderstood the 3 pounds thing, sorry. I thought you meant for someone like me with no training experience.

What the hell?

Everyone on here told me since the beginning of the year when I joined, that I'll gain minimal fat at 1-2 pounds of overall body weight gain a month.

First and foremost, you have to stop comparing yourself to other people. Don't worry, we all do it, but it's a horrible habit. Also try to remember that professional athletes are professional for a reason. They work hard, yes, but they are generally also very gifted from the start. There are people out there who are a hell of a lot stronger than me and look a lot better than me and have done it with much less work than I've put in. If you try to compare yourself to others you're gonna go nuts, and that applies to your whole life, not just how you look or what you can lift.

Another thing to think about is that we are all at different points in our journey. You're a beginner, and you're very thin. These are good things, in the sense that you CAN gain 1-2lb a month and a far higher percentage of it will be muscle when compared to someone like myself who has trained for a while and has more muscle already. This won't be the case forever, but you don't need to worry about that until you get there.

As far as asking questions, screw everybody who's putting you down. If you have a question, you ask it. But try not to come into it with preconcieved notions. Remember, the human body is a complex thing and we are all different. Ask questions if you have them, but stick to your plan long enough to REALLY see if it's giving you what you want.

Believe in the plan, focus on your goals.

No, but you told me to speak to speak to like minded people and thats what they told me. The bodybuilders, the people that do stay lean year round.

Youv'e also always been the one to help me in PM's, telling me about people who do what I want to do and to check them out. People that stay lean all the time.
They use the 1-2 pounds a month parameter.

You told me I could do it and that I could stay lean. You said you do it yourself.

Youv'e spent the last few months telling me I can do this, whilst keeping my moddeling job,which would mean I would be needing to gain only minimal fat to do so.
Everyone youv'e pointed me towards that achieved what I want to achieve goes by the rule of 1-2 pounds a month, for steady muscle gain, with minimal fat.

Now when everybody's criticizing and taking the piss out of me and my question(s), your insinuating the same as them , that I'm an idiot for thinking I could stay lean, when it was you thats helped me believe I can do this while staying lean in the first place.

You knew how I was approaching this, I'd told everyone time and time again that I was shooting for 1-2 pounds of bodyweight a month, so knowing my goal to stay lean, why didn't you tell me this?


Anyway, it must be minimal fat at 1-2 pounds a month. If its a 2 to 1 ratio of fat to muscle gain, muscle been the higher number, then thats barley any fat at all each month.
