    pros vets please put an end to these questions!!!!!

    Alright i have got a few BIG questions that are holding me back. 1st this guy at the gym who is in good shape and kinda big told me he doesnt take any supps. he said he drinks a gallon of water while at the gym. and he has one shake after the gym and he eats when hes hungry. he said he gained almost 20lbs in about two months from doing this. he said something like it takes 3 lbs of water to hold one lb of muscle?????? i know water is important but if you drink that much will you really gain that much muscle???? secondly everyone has recommended i eat 5000 calories a day. how many should be from fat and how many should be quality stuff. a lot of things are like half from fat.

    Unfortunately most guys who are on gear won't admit it to a stranger when asked -heck some won't admit it to friends and family -so don't be surprised if he offers an explanation that doesn't make much sense. Remember all those baseball players who were on "creatine"?

    By the way, 185 is pretty big for a 21 year old!!

    How tall are you and do you know your bodyfat?

    if you eat enough and train right, you can get to 200lbs naturally in two years or so, maybe even earlier, and don't say that your a hardgainer, the only thing holding you back from gaining muscle is not eating enough and wasting your time with isolation movements and overtraining, good luck and remember, always lift heavy

    very good advice. Do the big GH movements like flat bench presses dead lifts rows and squats and you can gain huge. very good advice.

    A 50/40/10 is a good bulk ratio.
