Gain 10 Pounds Of Muscle In 3 Days:
Is This Even Possible?


You see an advert in your bodybuilding magazine or on some website to "Gain 10 pounds of muscle in 3 days". A fitness model with a huge muscular body, grinning at you, and a couple of before and after pictures have you hooked.



Strategically placed phrases like "scientifically proven" and "the secret pros use" will make you reach for your telephone and credit card.

Stop right now!

I’m sorry to cut it to you, but it just isn't possible to gain 10 pounds of muscle in 3 days.

There, the truth is out.

The only way to do it may be to artificially graft on additional muscles using some space-age surgical procedure. And let me tell you, it will be quite a while before we see any such thing available on Earth.

Don’t believe the ads; I don’t care what they promise you. The supplement industry regularly commits a multi-billion dollar scam in the form of these ads, magazines, and websites.

Here’s what this multi-billion dollar industry does: On a daily basis, it puts out these advertisements, complete with fake testimonials and flimsy research showing how their supplements are the best and how they can help you gain X pounds of muscle in a very short time.

Unfortunately, the majority of these outrageous claims are scams. While there are definitely some effective supplements out there, even those can’t make you gain huge amounts of muscle mass overnight. Even the best supplements cannot replace hard work in the gym, and that’s the truth.

Whatever the claim is, if a supplement promises to help you gain many pounds of muscle or burn fat at twice the normal rate, you should decide on how good the supplement is based on sound research and not phony testimonials.

Everyone would know about such a supplement and every trainer around would recommend this supplement, if it truly existed.

You CAN gain a lot of muscle in a short period of time, but it won’t happen in a mere 3 days.

Follow this plan: Hit the gym regularly, train all parts of your body scientifically, overload your workouts progressively, eat properly, and rest well; pretty soon you won’t just gain 10 pounds of muscle, but perhaps a whole lot more.

While not in the manner described in the ads, supplementation can also help you in your path. Truthfully, only a handful of supplements out there can make you get better results.

When looking at these advertisements and testimonials, use common sense and take them with a pinch of salt, because most of the testimonials are inaccurate or scripted.

The "research" behind these claims, which "prove" how you can gain 10 pounds of muscle in a few days, is mostly faked or altered cleverly to lead you to believe that the tests were performed on humans.

In actuality the tests were probably done on rats or mice, and you can’t relate the data from this trumped-up research to humans.

Try to get a reference from the research material and look it up on PubMed. You’ll probably find that the research is horribly skewed or just doesn’t exist.
