My husband just started working out. The guy that is training him says he needs to put on 15kg of pure muscle. My husband is 1.8m tall and his 65kg. The are aiming for 80kg. Is this ok and how long will it take to build so much muscle.

That seems like a reasonable goal weight for your husband's size. It will take w hile to build such muscle as I suspect that you husband is a "hard-gainer" who battles to put on weight.

He will build it through proper training, proper rest and proper eating. I suspect that your husband's trainer has all of these under control and is therefore in good hands.

Keep well,
