Well, I am just going off of experience and averages. I have yet to see any client (some of them bodybuilders) net 1 lb. of muscle a week. I have been in the business for almost 8 years now and have yet to see that. However, if you think you can then go for it!
By the way, how have you been calculating your bodyfat percentage in the past?
Yeah, honestly I don't see myself achieving this goal...
I think with the hard work we are all talking about, i.e. diet, training, diet, the right supps, diet, etc., it is possible. But I don't see myself NOT cheating too much over the next 6 1/2 monhts.. LOL
If I do seriously try to attain this goal, you will see me in a bodybuilding contest before year's end! That's how serious I would have to take this, personally. I've been lifting weights, seriously, for longer than you've been in the business, but only been a PT for the most part of the last year.
To answer your last question, I've done a couple ways. I have a guy at work that does the 4 Site Pinch test usually. I have had a couple other people do the 4 Site and the 7 Site Pinch test, and I also have a Tanita Athletic 2 Person scale at home, that I jump on every once in a while, for comparison reasons.
This is supposed to be funny..... at least it is to me!! LOL The kid has been accused of "roids", and has the stretch marks near the arm pits, but that doesn't really mean he's on Vitamin S... but it's always questionable. Of course, people I work with have accused me of it, too, at least in the past!
