    Well 43lbs (30+ being LM) in 3 months is the biggest gain I've ever heard of. Your strength gains surpass anything I've ever seen. Your initial strength (curling 75lbs without ever having worked out) is pretty damn unbelievable too. Your ability to gain weight at 5lbs a week on only 4500 cals a day is unreal too. Your claim of 2% BF is believable, but again, considering how slow your metabolism is, seems odd. Your claim of having bigger than an average persons muscles at 6' 5" and 155lbs means you must have the smallest bone structure in the world, but then that wouldn't jive with how you have a 36" waist right now at such a BF% of only 7-8%. You truly are a unique specimen I guess.

    i actually have a fast metabolism, a year ago when i weighed 230 i had really never engaged in any physical activity and ate more than 3k calories a day. most of which was red meats or pastas. bigger than the average persons really isnt that big, id say my muscles were 15% bigger than a male my age who didnt lift

    You don't have a fast metabolism gaining 5lbs a week eating only 4500 cals or getting to 230lbs on 3k a day. You've got it backwards.

    true, but in general, more muscle = more strength.

    You don't want 2% body fat.
