Im just curious what I might be capable of with alot of hard work. has anyone here started at 150 and hit 200? I might have an advantage cause Im 19 and my dad did'nt fill out untill his 20's, Im not as skinny as he was but hes like 175 and Im 150 and an inch or so taller at 5' 7". I was 140 but have gained 10 a month and 1 day into Rippetoes.
With a good routine, dedication, and attention to diet it's not particularly uncommon for a teen to put on 60lbs within a year.
I went from 140 to 215 in less than a year and a half. You'll hit 200, 10 pounds a month is actually a pretty fast pace.
Best lifts: 615/475/660, Raw w/ Wraps
Ten pounds a month and your gonna be a fatty fat-fat boy. 20-30 lbs at that pace would be okay, you'll put on fat but you'll still be swoll and look good if you're working hard enough. But if you take that over a span of more 60 lbs, it's not gonna be pretty.
But I know where you're coming from, if I go on a bulk it's a crazy fast one. I gained 17lbs in a month a while back.
My advice is don't go faster than 2 lbs / week.
1.5 / week would be good if you're in it for the long haul.
I don't see why you wouldn't be able to in the long run...
Bako, classic sig man, classic.
hahahah o man... at 5'11 I went from 140 to 200 in 8 months.
Best 8 months of my life

I went from 190 (fat) to 152
The opposite.. Pretty sure it can be done haha..
I 6'3 and i start 150lb about 5 months ago and i am 185lbs right now i plan on 200lb in a couple months
I went from 145 to 200lbs within 10 months or so so yes it's definitely possible. You just have to eat a TON, lift heavy, and avoid intensive cardio. I'd recommend doing it a bit more slowly than I did, however. If you gain that fast a lot of it will be fat.
145 lbs. to 215 in about a year and a half

I have a friend that went from 181 (junior year in high school) to about 240 in 6 months. He was not fat either. He had about 380 bench press and a 500lb squat.
When I was 20, I weighed about 110 lbs, and could bench about 65 lbs. Now I'm 29, weigh about 150 lbs, and my bench is right at 200.
If I can do it, anybody can. I'm getting no help from genetics!
5'6", 145 lbs.
400(335) Bench Press
600(520x3 2xBW) Dead Lift
500(495x1) ATG Squat
365 Front Squat
consistency and intensity.
Fun part is my appetite is starting to become more and more submissive to my desires. Lane is doing his BB stuff (still can't figure out why) then he wants to catch up to my weight so I have to set him a nice target at the end of july. Gonna be a fun time!
Switching routines doesn't always help. You just need to find a routine that works for you. What works for some, might not work for others.
