View Full Version : How long would it take to see a noticeable difference in size/strength?
Ok im 19.. 145 pounds 5'10.. skinny little guy... and I wanna start working out and I got my routine (sorta) planned out.. im gonna be working out 3-4 times a week.. most likely 3.. and how long do u think the average time in weeks/months would it take to notice a difference? workout for about 45 minutes each time cuz i dont get much time (before I start my classes)
For strength you'll notice a difference soon.
For size you'll see a difference in a while.
You cant really give an exact time because there are too many variables.

it really depends on how much your devoted to working out. If your working out..just two times a week or just a lil margin..you'll see the differences in a while. But if you really work at it..maybe 4/7 (or more) days..you'll notice improvements atleast in a month..(even if it's just a lil improvement....then it'll get better and better every month.
structure boy either doesnt know what hes talking about, or he hasnt finished what he was saying.
Like adam said, there are far too mayn variables, every one is different. Your body may have to put on little muscle mass inorder to carry the added weight.
To maximaze on both strength and muscle gains, never train the same muscle group when it is sore and/or not fully recovered. My rule is always way 24 hrs after the muscle group has stop being sore before i ever train it again.
It depends on how intense your workout is, the best is to workout untill the point before overtrain. For me this means a total of 7-8 sets + warmups for a certain muscle group.
Just be patient and it will come. Strength gains you should see a strength gain within a month, if not you do not, relook your schedual and diet. Remember never do the EXACT same schedual twice. Always add in a little extra weight or a couple more sets. This is the only way you can improve and the body knows to adapt the growing strain.

Damn, i must be doing everything all wrong then. Took me 3 years to get to my current size and strength levels.
