    I lack scientific evidence! You're claiming to build muscles without the suffice nutrition to do so. It is not possible, no matter how many anecdotes you can come up with.

    I've been weight training for over 20 years and there is no way you can expect to be able to consistently increase weight on the bar every week, it never works this way. When you hit a plateau, you must try to overcome it not just by increasing weight, try to increase the number of reps, reduce the time between sets, the order of the exercsises, increase calorie intake, etc. You must use your imagination to find different ways to stress the muscles, don't allow them to adapt, don't keep doing the same things.
