    30 lbs in about 6 months. And it wasn't pretty at the end. Very fast weight gain always leads to excessive fat unless you're untrained and are just starting out.

    143-185 in one year. Of course, that was me starting out severely underweight.

    180-210 in about 5 months with minimal bodyfat gains. That was after I took almost a full year off from training. In that year off I lost a lot of weight and strength. My body just exploded when I got back into training. A lot of people suspected that I was hitting the juice because of how quickly my weight and strength was coming back. "Come on Kris, tell me what you are taking, I promise I wont tell anyone", I heard something along those lines just about every week.

    200 to 270 in 5 months. mostly fat, i would estimate 40%, still got strong though. its been 5.5 years now, i'm 265 and in the low 20% bf and going lower. Strength has always been going up, diet and body comp was always less of a priority, now body comp is number one priority right along with strength.

    Edit: don't do what I did.

    Very fast excess weight always results in extreme fat unless you're inexperienced and are just beginning out.

    IMO you should be less concerned about over all weight and more concerned with how you look in the mirror. Getting to 22 percent body fat isn't fun and isn't fun coming off.
