    Only on internet message boards can you find people accusing perfect strangers of lying about their stats.

    Only on internet message boards can you find people that even care.

    It's an amazing phenomenom.

    I'm just as intrigued as everyone else by this thread.

    Most of that growth was probably growth you would have gotten anyway without ever touching a weight. There is definitely no way you put 4 inches on your arms by training and only gaining 15 lbs to boot.

    i managed to gain a stone in weight in 2 months which is like 12 pounds so you probably can gain 20 lbs in 3 months if u eat everyhting in sight granted it wouldn't be exactly muscle mass but you could put the weight on.

    Jim there is no way your arms can be 14" my moms look bigger than that and hers are 13"

    I gained about 30 pounds in about 5 1/2 months, maybe 8-10 of which are fat (based on estimates of my change in bodyfat %). My arms grew about an inch. They were a little disproportionately large beforehand, and now they look about right, my chest/shoulders/back have just caught up. Not the cleanest bulk ever, but 66-73% muscle (and water, to some extent) gain isn't too awful.

    I wasn't trying to get into the pissing contest, I was just agreeing with the fact that that sort of weight gain is possible.
    So uh...

    Sure you are. You're just not old enough to get caught...

    BTW if you are 20 and you're NOT old enough, how old IS old enough?

    There is only 15lbs diff between these 2 pics, yet the muscle diff is 4" on each arm, 2" on my pecs, at least 3" on my lats, and maybe an inch on my waist. Telling me that that is impossible doesn't change the fact that it happened to me.

    Also people have to remember, the bigger your arms the more mass it takes to add an extra inch... If you think of the cross-section, the extra inch has to roll all the way round, but on a smaller cross section their is less of a perimeter to blah blah blah

    This is an excellent point. I believe TJ might be somewhat leaner now as well.
    And yeah, those scars look cool, and you look pissed as HELL in that younger picture.

    Yea, I was trying to put her in her cage, and as soon as she got close to my stomach, I got that big gash across my stomach, a smaller one on my chest that's harder to see, and my wrists got scratched up too. She's like a small tazmanian devil, little twister of fur and claws.
    *Edit: And I'm not explaining everything in enough detail probably. The first 2 years I lifted somewhat seriously, I put the first 2" on my arms without gaining any weight. Then in the last year, I put on another 2" and 15lbs. My weight is still climbing actually. Something I changed in my diet is working, just don't know what it is.
