Increases in muscular size/appearance

I have read a lot on the forum about increases in weights and reps although I can find much information in relation to proportional increases in muscular size and or appearance.

What sort of changes have other HITters experienced? What sort of muscular increases? I appreciate that this is hard to measure although obviously most people refer to it as putting on ′weight′ to their physique, eg. 10lb in 3 months.

Well, that would depend on your genetics. Different people will gain differently. Just remember that you′ll have to have a big muscles to bench 400 lbs, pulldown 400 lbs., squat 500 lbs., and deadlift 500 lbs.

We have some POWERLIFTERS in the gym who doesn′t even come close to me in muscle size in fact some doesn′t even look muscular at all but can lift 500+ lbs. bench press ! Although I TOTALLY agree that GENETICS play a VERY SIGNIFICANT role in muscle Size and Strength but I also think that SPECIFIC training method and principles are RESPONSIBLE for a SPECIFIC kind of adaptation. As bodybuilders muscle development is our PRIMARY goal and Strength increases should only be a side effect of our High Intensity Anaerobic training (secondary consideration). PEACE.

Everybody is probably aware that an individual with large muscles trains then to be larger and an extremely strong individual trains for strength.

In reality their training is similar but the body is different. We all think that we train to our strengths and believe that it was the training that gave the results.
