i started weight training a few weeks ago and was wondering what i should expect on average for "growth" ie. what kind of weight gain over what time period is considered "average" so that i can kinda plan my weight classes. i am lifting 3 times a week and while not on a "perfect" diet i generally get 2500-3000 calories and a ton of protien.

i have no "goals" persay for growth, my weight training is so that i am stronger, which will include more muscle mass. but basicly i just want a general idea of how much growth is normal.

You may need a little more than 3000 calories a day if you want to optimize your growth while weight training. How many reps are you doing in what kind of sets?

Weight lifting in slow going man, for anyone. Even a mesomorph cant expect huge leaps when he first starts weight training. Theres really no way to tell what you'll gain because it depends on your metabolism, how much activity you perform in any given day, how much rest you have etc. Just be really consistent when you first start with weights. Tell yourself that you're no going to miss a day for a month and workout on schedule. Get into a routine. After lifting a while you probably wont need more than 45 minutes a day for 4 days a week to maintain a good strength gain and a little size.

Someone who has first started weight training usually sees LARGE gains in strength at first, which then slow down significantly. This is because the CNS undergoes some changes and makes the innervation to those muscles much more efficient. Once this occurs, future strength gains are primarily due to muscle growth. As far as calories are concerned, for a moderately active male at 165 lbs, your maintenance calories are approximately 2994.75 per day. That's the amount you should consume to maintain your current bodyweight. If you wanted to gain say. 20 lbs, then your daily calorie consumption should be approximately 3357.75.

Your MA training is a factor, sets and reps a factor, progressive weights a factor.
