I'm currently 5'-8", 135 lbs, 17 years old. In 5 months, working out 3-4 days a week and eating right, do you think it's possible to get to 150 lbs.?

If not, what is a realistic goal?

p.s. I'm not planning on using creatine

I sure do...It all depends on if you use supplements are not and what you calorie intake is everyday and every week. Another thing is your BF% for the fat that you already have.

I have gained 16lbs since Jan. 5th,2002 and it is now March 4th. I plan on gaining another 5-10 lbs. before the end of this month. Now that is a task at hand.

Simply... it can be done.

Maybe, but expect to gain some fat and be prepared to eat a lot

I gained 10 pounds in 4 months, and very little fat, and I have a really hard time gaining weight, so 20 pounds in 5 months seems reasonable if you can eat eat eat

That's realistic. Depends on your definition of "too much fat", though....expect to gain muscle to fat in about a 3:1 ratio if doing everything right, if your just gonna bulk like a pig then 2:1 is about what you'll get.

Use creatine, it'll only help.

Well isn't that a coincidence.

I agree I would use creatine, actually I do.

Question: Why don't you want to use creatine?

hell yea! last year, i put on 20 lbs in 2 months by eating as much protein, carbs, and good ole nutrional fat and then going to the gym and absolutely tearin it up. i concentrated on heavy compound movements for now more than 8 reps sometimes no more than 5. i worked each bodypart once a week. shakes like myoplex help if ya have them as snacks along with regular meals. i also drank as much milk and water as i could hold. it damn worked well and ive been building ever since then but ive slowed down because im short and im cutting up now cause i dont wanna look too ridiculous:D

well, it's pretty possible to gain 15lbs in 5 months and stay th same bodyfat, cuz i went from 125-145 (<10%bf) in less than one year, and two of those months i didn't lift

My reason for not wanting to use creatine is that I heard it causes acne, and I already have moderate acne, so I don't want to make it any worse.

any more stories/info would be appreciated, thanks everyone

So will creatine make acne worse?

There is no correlation between creatine and acne. And your goals are totally possible. I've gained 70 pounds in 19 months. Not to mention my bodyfat stayed the same.

You are, of course, going to tell us how you gained 70 pounds on 19 months, right?

umm...i was tiny and undernourished, then i began to eat adequately while training very hard. And poof, 70 pounds.

makes sense.


hey man if u think creatine causes acne, u need to start doing some havy research. creatine is a safe amino acid that does not cause health problems. start doing research if u want to get biggertuttut

tony touch, I've done a lot of research but I've never "put it to use"

I've heard it both ways as well, so that's why I asked.

Creatine and acne have no relation. Well they might in some odd meaningless sort of way, but no creatine does not cause acne.

*** It's possible but very difficult to achieve.
