reality check

ok, we all know the a healthy fat loss is to lose approx 1-2 lbs a week,
with a calorie deficit and preferred with exercise/cv

what about muscle gain/build
how much does the body gain per week. 1 lb ? or less,
also how long does the body needs to rest for it to rebuild properly? 24 hours? or more?

    you will gain some fat along with the muscle in most cases,so its difficult to say how much a week although i doubt it would be as much as 1lb per week LBM.

    protein synthesis "muscle repair" or "recovery" as you put it is raised as soon as you lift a weight it normaly lasts about 48hrs then starts to return to baseline,it doesnt stop if it did we would die

    I would say a good gain of muscle for a seasoned trainer would be 5 - 7Ib a year. A beginner will gain a lot more, 1-2stone in a year would be possible.
