How long will it take to put on 10kg of muscle?
I've recently embarked on my own journey with a goal of gaining 10kg of muscle. I have struggled for years to put on serious weight but starting in January really set my mind to the goal.
I have been running a 1000 calorie surplus, consuming around 3400 calories a day, for the past 3 months. I just weighed in yesterday at 75.4kg from a starting weight of 70kg on the 1st of January. At my current rate of progress it would be possible to put on 10kg in 6 months. I should add here this calorie intake is alongside 3–4 gym sessions per week with 2–3 cardio workouts.
I think if you were prepared to really pack in the calories and go for 4000+ per day, you could reach this goal even faster! It's all about consistency and dedication to consuming more calories than your body is used to having.
