How much you gain in your first year?

How much pure lean muscle did you gain in your first year?

I here stories of people gaining 80lbs of pure muscle in a year, and others saying to aim for 5lbs of lean muscle a month in your first year.

Do i find it really hard to gain muscle? cos i thought for a beginner 20lbs of lean muscle in a year would be good.

Anyway how much you guys put on in your first year?

    I here stories of people gaining 80lbs of pure muscle in a year,



    that is what they are likely to be unless they are genetic freaks and go from very very little mass to a substantial amount

    IMO its very hard to give an exact figure on lean mass gain but i would be happy with 10-15 as drb says

    havent completed one year yet, but at least people think ive been bb'ing for that long

    Hazard a touch of narcissism without shame.
    There is no room for junk food in any diet whatsoever, leave the junk in the bin.

    in my first year training i lost about a stone but i got a lot leaner and bigger muscles. dont know how much muscle in weight but when i flexed my arms to start with they looked exactly the same as if i wasn't flexing them. after a year there was a big difference.
