    well generally a 1lb a week is considered to be pretty good, if your doing a clean cut...if your dirtier though with your eating it maybe be more, alos depends on how many calories over maintenace you are eating....finally if this is your first bulk ever and you have just started working out your gains will be alot more significant

    1 lb seems like a lot, no?
    maybe a pound every two weeks to keep it really really clean.

    well in ideal conditions with proper diet and proper intensity u should expect 1-2lbs of LBM gained in 1 week, if they are barely above maintenance and not eating enough protein and not working out with proper intensity then maybe 1lb pre 2 weeks.

    Depends on how much you eat. It can be 0-5 lbs. What's a good weight gain to shoot for a week? That's the question to ask. 1-2 lbs per week.
    Burritos are the bomb for bulking!

    well thats the goal...although sometimes you will have weeks with no gain and other with a 7 pound gain cause you decided to drink and eat yourself stupid for awhile
