I've got a friend who goes to a local gym everyday and lifts his butt off and he has gotten huge with no supplements or steroids or anything like that. I just don't know how he got so big so quick. I understand that his diet and probably genetics had a lot to do with it but is there something he could teach me?
Most likely he would teach consistency and proper planning!

and how to pick the right parents.
Seriously, some guys are just dealt better cards. I know guys that never-ever-never work out that can lift weights that have taken me years to build up to. It isn't fair, but it is what it is.
Ask him to teach you how to eat.

I've been up and down weight wise but any time I'm consistently eating for 16hours of the day 7 days a week is when I see the gains literally blow up.
Everyone puts in the time in the gym, that's the "easy" and fun/rewarding part. The hard part is eating enough consistently each day and getting enough sleep to allow for proper rest periods.
"Fine, if I'm not allowed to light it on fire, can my imaginary friend?"
Muscle memory helps a lot on gaining size as well. You sure he didn't work out before?
Eating and consistency......and good genetics.

It was all of a sudden that he decided to start lifting with some other friends. He does eat slot but it's mostly junk food and he doesn't drink much milk at all. I have began eating a ton and try to get as much protien as I an and balance the rest I drink a lot of milk. My friend and I are going next week to get a gym membership cause lifting in my basement by myself with my head hitting off the rafters isn't fun.
