According to some of those calculations I have the potential to gain another 15-17 pounds of LBM. That is assuming my bodyfat % estimate is right, which isn't the greatest assumption.

So basing off these estimators, I imagine many of us are nearing the limit, and some people are probably over it.

My calcs say I can expect to top out at only ~10-15lbs more LBM than I have now, which if I look back in my past, I was dang close to that level in my peak strongman competition shape when I was the same BF yet weighed 20lbs more than now.

Or wait, are these estimators based on being fully depleted, and thus losing that water weight that counts as lbm and so on?


Another question on lyle's chart, when someone hits the 4+ year mark, what will happen to them if they keep on a bulking program? Will the excess calories just turn to fat whereas before they used to turn to muscle or will the body keep ramping up to burn them off or ?

That's a good question.

To say it differently to highlight my own curiosity, is there a point where one should no longer try for much of a dietary surplus given an inability to pack on much more muscle mass?

The Casey Butt calculator doesn't require you to know your current body fat %.

It's a bit depressing knowing that you only have 5-10lbs left to gain, and konw that the gaining will be agonisingly slow.

Take a guess and I'll tell you if you're right.
