    Size of gains?

    hey all, just wondering if i'm doing a 3 day a week, bicep/back/forearms/abs, chest/triceps/abs, legs/shoulders/abs
    working out hard, always making sure im struggling on the last few reps etc

    Eating reasonably well along with protein and creatine supplements, what what kind of size gains should i be expecting within say a month, 2 months, 6 months etc

    And i know everyone gains differently etc, just looking for a rough guide, an average if you like.

    thanks

    getting ripped is 90% diet, bulking can take years of 100% dedication .
    it really depends on what u want, try to set realistic goals and try different routines to see what works best for u.

    So many factors come into play. Diet is a big part.

    If that's your pic, You seem to be a pretty lean guy. What's your current height & weight? How many calories are you eating each day?

    I doubt anyone can give you a realistic idea. But maybe we can make sure you're on the right track. What's your routine? Share it and paste a link.

    "the recommended 2500" calories (that they put on food labeling) is for the average middle-aged bloke who drives to work and sit in an office all day. There's loads of calculators online that will work out a slightly better estimate based on your age, weight, height and activity levels (e.g. [url]http://nutritiondata.self.com/tools/calories-burned[/url]).

    LOL

    You need your BMR plus exercise calories. Usually 3-500 more.

    What did MFP suggest? I use it as well and found it to be on the low side.
