It depends on a variety of factors, such as age, diet, hormones, how much and how often you incorporate weight training and more.
How to Gain Muscle Mass
When weightlifting, muscles undergo micro trauma. Cells on the outside of the muscle fibers join together to repair the damage and increase muscle fiber, thus growing your muscles.
Muscle Gain Over Days, Weeks and Months
The moment you start lifting weights, your muscles will begin to undergo trauma. Depending on your workout length and intensity, muscle cells can grow back bigger and stronger anywhere from one to seven days later.
You will see the most strength benefits in the first four to six weeks of weightlifting. The more consistently you work out, the more your strength gains will come from true muscle growth.
Individuals can gain one to two pounds of lean muscle per month with consistent strength training and a good nutrition plan.
