I was thinking, obviously there is going to be a day when my gains are going to slow down tremendously. If things didn't slow down everyone would be benching a grand and be the size of a gorilla so I was wondering how gains are coming for guys like Prof. X and Ceph.
It's not uncommon for a newb to gain 30 pounds in a year and put a few inches on all his measurements. I mean really it's not even uncommon for a guy training for 3 years to do something like this. Also strength increases are pretty significant early on too.
So for a guy like Ceph who is closing in on a 600 lb CGP, how long did it take you to get there did you get up to 400 or 500 within a few years and than slowly over a few years gradually increase the weight little by little, or were the gains pretty steady throwing 30-40 pounds a year on your max. I mean I know you've been training 10 plus years so how much, if they've slowed at all, are the gains coming?
Also guys like X, and C_C for that matter, who weigh anywhere from 270-300lbs at 5'10 or whatever you are, how fast did you put on that weight, did you get up to something heavy quick and then just added alittle more each year or are you still able to pack 20 pounds a year onto your 270 pound body, obviously with the proper nutrition and lifting schedule.
I mean I know X likes to bulk up, cut down and then bulk to the same weight. I know you said you would carry the weight better, being more muscular at the same weight, when you would cut down and gain back up.
This just had me very curious and anyone who has experience with being pretty damn big/strong, I would love your input.
