LOL....not really. But someone that's 5'10", 160, with the right regimen and diet, if they haven't worked out previously, could get up to 180 in about 3 months if they really work their ass off.
It's also relatively easy to do when your natural metabolism changes as you age. That's not very helpful, though... it only happens once and you won't know when.
Your example is funny because I'm 5'10'' and I put on over 20 Lbs. of muscle eating prison food and working out in 4 months. I went from the 140 area to 160's. Obviously I'd never worked out before. That was a long time ago... I'm 200 Lbs. now. Not muscle lol
Yeah, the initial gain you get leads to some major disappointment down the road. The first year I really worked out hard with weights, I went from around the 155 pound range to about 180....so 25 pounds in a year....in the 8 years after that, I've gotten up to 220......so 40 pounds in 8 years, or an average gain of 5 pounds per year.
That's why it would raise eyebrows to see anyone throw about 20-30 pounds in the span of a few months after years of working out.....it just doesn't happen that way naturally.
