I would say a few things:
1) List weights are remarkably unreliable.
2) Seeing JVR in person last year... dude was a *ing string bean. It wouldn't be hard for him to put mass on. His body should naturally fill out over the next few years, and I wouldn't be shocked to see him settle at a weight in the 215-220 range depending on how committed he is to it.
3) Lets slow the F down with throwing steroids around...
Yea 21 isn't 25, just like 3 isn't 8 and 12 isn't 16 etc..
The point is he is past the age where he is growing in stature now, which can provide more of weight gain.
Ok anecdotal evidence. I have a vegan sister who added 10lbs of muscle in 2 weeks, blah blah...
We graduate from high school at age 17 here, so I don't where you are going with you story. And did your cousin add all the muscle mass at once, on delivery of his diploma, which then immediately ripped all his clothes like hulk? Or did he add it over the year(s), or possibly exaggerate some numbers? Unless you routinely weigh you cousin?
So so many interesting questions there.
1) Ok, so then spitting out some random number of 10-15lbs in 2-3 months was obviously wrong, as I was pointing out. It was also very unlikely.
2)Yes so maybe from the beginning of last year to this day he added 15lbs, much more likely. Even if he looked skinny, doesn't mean he didn't have a lot of strength, nor that he hasn't trained.
Since I said he only added 6lbs (who knows how much of muscle mass), wtf does that have to do with me suggesting he used steroids? If someone who is a professional athlete whom has been training for at least the last few years, would not shoot up 15lbs in pure muscle mass that quickly, plain and simple.
he did then there would be some eyebrows raised, but
TP: Yes, I wrote a note today. He is bigger, stronger up top but his weight is only slightly more -
206 from about 201.
Just like Gagne in his second year. Bigger
I am going to take the word of people that are always around him an actually monitor his size/weight. I know I'm crazy listening to documented stats and science over baseless anecdotal evidence...
