Gains Timeline

As far as the look is concern, there always have been an obvious trend with guys who are natural. According to health experts, normally a guy would gain roughly 20lbs of muscle at initial phase of weights lifting, then after his gains will get tail off and would be slow for the rest of their life.

So, in the case of Michael B. Jordan, 24lbs of muscles which he gained for Creed was perfectly normal. In muscle building, hitting the gym 4-5 times a week with big compound movements can easily provide one with heavy muscles.

Thus, it was believed that Jordan was 100% natural for Creed. Star in Creed doesn’t look BIG at all. Instead just looked ripped…

So, to look massier or to pack on heavy mass, people starts believing that the star Michael took a short steroid-cycle adding more size as well as mass.
