    How much bicep gain can happen in two months?

    I know it all depends on the person and there are lots of variables
    But still on an average if 3 times a week workout is done with intense weights
    how much increase in the biceps can be seen? one inch? two inch?

    Are there any special program you guys recommend for the same?
    I am ready to stop sugar, oil and be very strict about the diet
    Can someone please give some advise?

    Thanks

    PS: This article states that they guy gained gained 2 inches in two months..

    You shouldn't be working your biceps 3 times a week ever, especially if you're looking for truth. Science states that muscles take atleast 72 hours to repair. This means in absolute ideal resting, it will still take 3 days to recover. So at most, lift them twice a week if you must. But if you're lifting back on a different day, it's clearly going to take longer to repair because you will inadvertently be working them. Make sense?

    Sorry for not making it clear
    By lifting 3 times a week, I mean different muscles with biceps coming once a week
    Whats the quickest way to build muscle? or it also like any other field a research which depends on the body type, the kind of food you take and rest and all that things?

    It takes 12-15lbs of muscle to gain an inch on your arms. If you're a novice you can probably do this in 6 months.

    The quickest way to build muscle is probably what you're doing. Training 3 times per week is allowing a lot of time for rest and recovery which is when your muscles grow. Make sure you're eating big if you wanna get big. And if you're not doing much cardio, you might be able to split your workout even further and go 4 times a week.

    don't smaller muscle groups such as the biceps recover much faster than larger ones, like legs, or chest.

    It really depends on how hard you hit your muscles when you work them, and when I train I train hard.

    i've added 3/4 inch in 4 months, so i'll expect to be at 1 inch at the 6 month mark, so about 2 inches a year. and that's doing a full body routine w/ the only direct arm work being 3 sets of curls and 3 sets of dips on friday

    ive also added about 15 pounds, but a small chunk of that was fat from the holidays i think

    long story short, there is no quick solution. just train and forget about size and in time, size will come
