New Discoveries

How to Calculate Your Muscle Gain Potential

Ever wondered how much muscle your body is genetically capable of building?

If you’re curious about your muscle-building potential, Menno Henselmans, an experienced physique coach and fitness competitor, built a cool tool capable of accurately calculating your gains. 

The FFMI Calculator is founded on Dr. Casey Butt’s extensive research in natural bodybuilding, focusing on elite natural bodybuilders and scientific publications on the fat-free mass index (FFMI). Henselmans has fine-tuned Butt’s calculations to provide even more precise estimations, especially for those who are lean and aiming for that chiseled, six-pack look.

For men, the calculator estimates overall muscularity and provides insights into the relative development of different body parts (you can check out my results below). Recent adjustments to the formulas ensure more accurate results, particularly for men with body fat percentages between 4–12%. If you’re carrying a bit more fat, the results might vary.

Unfortunately, for women, data is only available for whole-body estimates. However, studies suggest that women can achieve about 80% of the muscle mass of men (Henselmans’ calculator adjusts for this difference).

So, if you’re itching to discover if the gains you desire are physically possible for your body, I suggest giving the FFMI Calculator a shot!

Product Of The Week

::: Fight the Effects of Aging With 15% Off Qualia Senolytic :::

A big way I’ve minimized aging’s impact on my daily performance has been through senolytics.

Senolytics are a class of plant-derived compounds discovered in 2015 to benefit the human aging process in a remarkable way.

These compounds — such as fisetin, Senactiv®, and piperlongumine — support your body’s ability to eliminate senescent cells.*

Senescent cells are nicknamed “zombie cells” because they’re the old, worn-out cells lingering in you after their useful function, wasting energy and nutrition.

Senescent cells accumulate as you age, accelerating the aging process and leading to decreasing energy, increasing joint discomfort and stiffness, and other signs of “getting old.”

Qualia Senolytic combines nine research-backed ingredients (including the ones mentioned) to help slay your zombie cells, enabling you to feel younger.*

Over 35? Slay your zombie cells by clicking here to get Qualia Senolytic up to 50% off with an additional 15% off with code “SENOBEN.”
