If you use traditional methods with good nutrition/protein (and carbs?) and reasonable testosterone levels, you can put on a TON of muscle in a year. I put on a pound a month in spite of lots of chronic stress in my early 50's. At 40 you can leave me in the dust if you do things right. I'm not saying that's important, but just making a comment that 40 is a GREAT time to start adding muscle. Then it's much easier to maintain and just build a little over the years. That's what I wish I had done! I know of had to start from scratch...
matters where you start from..If you have trained and added muscle, then you likely have all the muscle you will ever have, unless you go AAS route.
you adding muscle (even 1lb/month?)makes me think of my past mindset, where I thought it would be easier to lose weight just by eating low calories(read: reduce calories and not get enough protein) and lose both fat and stored protein(muscle) from my body,.
eat and workout and the muscle will quickly come back on because of my genes want me to have muscle(at least some)
so I am asking you: when you put on TONS of muscle in your 40s, what was your status before, in your 30s etc
did you workout with the weights. I know you ate unhealthy for years, so maybe you weren't a gym rat at all? what changed to get you to put on TONs of muscle?
