    For you, it could be that you're new to lifting weights (beginner gains)? Or maybe you're just doing everything right . As for your friend, it could be that he's not eating enough or possibly not lifting right.

    Precisely. What is happening to you is normal, your friend's progress is not normal - he is doing something wrong, most likely not eating enough and consistently.

    Awesome gains Bonez, I'm pleased for you.

    This may be a case of genetic ability also. Some people are just built to be stronger than others and will progress much more rapidly even when on the exact same plan....

    I would hazard a guess though that something your friend is doing differently than you, but it's pretty hard to nail it down without being there in person. It could be anything from diet, to sleep, to exercise form, to over-training (not using the auto-regulation aspect properly) etc.

    Either way though he should be progressing, why not get him to post here and we can ask him some questions?
