    I honestly don't understand why a lot of women like muscles but that's probably because I'm a straight guy.
    Like in berserk if I were to choose who was more attractive the Band of the Hawk Leader Griffith or the Raid Captain I would personally choose Griffith. I mean Casca originally chooses Griffith over Guts and their relationship only really begins to develop as Griffith is imprisoned.
    Spoiler:

    although if we take into account their characters both are bad choices but Guts is superior because Griffith did everything wrong.

    Bro he went from 160lbs at 10% bf to 200lbs at 10% bf meaning he literally gained 40 pounds of raw muscle no fat. Naturally, this is a 3 year transformation. With steroids, it's a 4 month transformation.
    Where did you get those numbers from? For now I'll assume they're correct but very doubtful on the 200, he's not that big. More like 190. And the bf estimate is wrong, he's around 12-15%. If you do the maths his bulk maintaining 12% results in a 26.4lb lean mass gain, which can be done naturally

    In this case, the guy is obvs on gear. If he is 6', he went from ~160lbs to ~200lbs whilst retaining indentical body fat percentage meaning he added 35+lbs of muscle which is impossible looking at his biological overview. Still a good transformation, from a 4/10 to a 7/10.
    40lbs of muscle gained since starting is hardly indicative of steroid use. If you train and diet well you should gain at least 30lbs of muscle in your first 2 years of training naturally. I've put on over 50lbs of muscle and I've not used steroids yet.

    If you have gained 50 lbs naturally, chances are it wasn't 100% muscle

    Yes it was. I was 140lbs with abs when I started. Now I'm around 190lbs when I have the same sort of bodyfat levels. I've been up to around 230lbs peak-bulk.

    Height is 6'2''. Currently 220lbs somewhere around 16-18% bodyfat as a guess.

    Forgot to add to my last post btw, Layne Norton's projection for natural lean mass gain per year of training suggests that up to 50lbs of muscle gain naturally is entirely possible if you have good genetics.


    Years Training:Muscle Gain:
    1 year 20-25 pounds (2 pounds per month)
    2 years 10-12 pounds (1 pound per month)
    3 years 5-6 pounds (.5 pound per month)
    4 years 2-3 pounds (not worth calculating)

    does this mean if i trained for about 3-4 months about 2 years ago but i have now lost the muscle, I will not gain 20-25lbs in my first year of working out again? Even though I have now lost that muscle? But gain less since I have lost the newb gains

    If you went in with the mindset that you're starting from scratch then you should regain that muscle back even quicker than you did the first time around. Then you will continue to make good newb gains for the next 6 months or so.

    Nah girls are still more attracted to a ripped guy than a skinny/fat guy
    The only people who've ever cared about how many muscles I've had are gay men - 'Muscle Marys' are a thing on the gay scene.

    Cycling means my leg muscles have been firmer than most, but I have never been able to do a single pull up. When it comes to female partners, my number is higher than your IQ. Possibly combined, as well as individually.

    Not true. Men are certainly more open about it but subconsciously most women will also be more attracted to a man who is naturally big and muscular compared one who is less so, hence why most fellas who tick these boxes get success in clubs where only raw attraction, not personality, is concerned.

    So more women have left you than they have us combined? Congratulations

    A lot of guys complaining about being ugly are just being lazy.

    Just look at this guy, he went from being a 4/10 to an 8/10 and all he did was get buff:

    That guy looks like a starving african in the first picture though. A typical guy will not look 2x more attractive to women on average after developing a bodybuilder physique, I'd wager.

    Your username is quite fitting for the anger expressed in your post. Sexual attraction is very subconscious in both males and females. We arent different to primate animals in the Kingdom. But again, you said youre short and awkward, so i also wager that you have no chance when it comes to sexual attraction

    Gym can only make a heavy drastic change if you start out anorexic or obese. To the average Joe it only adds 1/2 maybe 3 points.

    Nah I'm pretty sure you'll find my shortness and awkwardness are massive turn-ons mate
