"It is not the critic who counts, not the one who points out how the strong man stumbled or how the doer of deeds might have done them better.

Is possible to gain 20 pounds of lean weight in a year?

I'm not asking if you can gain 20 pounds of dry muscle. I don't know if that's even possible. I do know our muscles consist of like 60% water. Basically what I'm saying is this: LBM = BW − BF.
