“Adam, is that you? Hold on one sec little bro,” said Seth from a distance.
Adam looked down at his new body, seeing newly acquired muscles bursting out of the only shirt he had on him after his workout. Given the shirt was a medium, Adam felt like he was going to lose circulation. Regardless, Adam looked down and decided to “pump up” his posture a bit to really impress Seth. He took a breath in, pulled his shoulders back, raised his chest and squeezed his fists. The fist squeeze caused a city map of veins to spiral across his arms, with a colored-pencil thick bicep vein right up his upper arm not protruding out.
“Holy mother of God,” said Seth quietly, surprised.
“Hey bro, looks like the gym finally worked!” Adam exclaimed, trying to sound more confident but sounding more awkward about it.
“Dude, what the hell happened to you? If you didn’t have my brother’s goofy face, I would’ve never guessed it was you.”
“I finally started seeing results from the gym. You know? Eating a ton, lifting heavy weights. The usual.”
Seth decided that he had heard enough and reached to grab Adam’s arm to yank him into the dorm room. Grabbing the young stud’s forearm felt like grabbing a hunk of granite. He pulled his not so little brother into the room, sat him down and started questioning him.
“Adam, what’s really going on? You’ve only been here a couple days and it looks like you’ve gained 50 pounds! Did someone give you some new super-powered steroids or something?”
Adam sighed with relief, knowing that Seth had always been someone he could talk to. “Well, the other night after my workout, I was really frustrated at everything. Not being able to build muscle. Not having confidence in myself. Always embarrassing myself at the gym. I was about to fall asleep and as I was drifting away, I mumbled to myself that I wished that my muscles grew one hundred times faster than anyone else. I also wished that I would never get tired or have to eat to get big. And for your information, I gained 85 pounds. Not 50.”
Seth just stared at Adam silently, absolutely awestruck. “Adam, that’s impossible,” Seth insisted. “There is no way that a wish just made you suddenly some superhero that can gain muscle without any food or rest. Especially not 100 times as fast as the normal human. Someone must have just slipped you some steroids before you got here, and they just kicked in really fast. It’s definitely the first time I’ve seen it, but I guess you’re the exception.
“No, I’m serious, bro,” Adam said defensively. “I promise you that I wasn’t slipped anything, and I can prove it.”
Seth sighed again with that ‘big brother tone’. “Fine. The school gym is going to be closing soon. Let’s go there now, and we can get a workout in together while it’s empty, and you can try and prove this crazy fantasy to me.”
As they walked back to the gym, Adam just had the biggest smile on his face. Not only for his new muscular form, but also that he finally got to work out with his brother and lift the same weights. Even more so, he got to show his brother this amazing thing that had happened to him.
Since Seth was a more experienced lifter, he walked Adam through all the right protocol to having an efficient session. Seth directed Adam through some simple stretches and started warming up on the bench press. Seth threw 135 pounds onto the bar and had Adam do 8 reps, which the young hunk did easily. Although Adam’s massive frame now Seth no doubt that it could be done, he was still surprised and even a bit proud of his little brother. Adam jumped up and said, “Seth, let’s get down to business, I want to show you what I can do.”
Seth sighed and said, “Fine. How much did you bench today?”
“Uhh. I think I just did this amount. 135 pounds, right?” Adam looked at the weights. “Hmm, let’s add 25 pounds on each side and let’s see how that feels. Okay bro?”
After hearing Adam did 135lbs for working sets today, Seth just scoffed as he put the weights on the bar. He then stood over the bench, ready to catch the bar as Adam would inevitably fail to lift it.
Seth then was taken back as Adam began pushing the 185-pound barbell up and down like it was a toothpick with marshmallows on the ends. Adam’s mind starting racing at the possibility that his brother was right about the wish. Adam finished 10 reps like they were nothing. “Switch those out with 45lb plates. I’m ready for more”
Seth quickly changed the weights out with the bar now having 215 pounds on it. This was the amount of weight that he usually worked with during his chest day. Adam gripped his hands on the bar and then lifted it off the rack. Sweat began to roll down his face and stain his shirt as he slowly pushed the weight down, and then slowly back up. After one rep, Seth was ready to pull the weight back on the rack, but Adam yelled, “No! I can do this!”
Adam took a deep breath and started pushing the weight again, this time going down way easier. He pushed the weight back up much faster, and started hammering out reps. One after the other, the newly-muscled monster started grunting with each rep, feeling his muscle fibers in his chest heating up like an oven.
Seth could barely make it out, but he could almost see Adam’s chest expanding as he continued to push the weight. It looked like his little brother was getting bigger and bigger right before his very eyes. Adam slammed the weight down on the rack, breathing very heavy now. “Seth quick! Add two more plates. I can do it! I know i can!”
Seth was now taken back by the power in his brother’s voice, and was rendered speechless and unable to move. Adam wasn’t being aggressive, and Seth knew that he wasn’t in danger. What he heard was a sense of excitement out of the new weightlifter. Feeling heavier and heavier weight go up easier and easier. Although, this was happening at an amazing rate.
Adam got up after waiting too long for his brother to react, and grabbed the plates, shoved them onto the bar and slammed his ass right back on the bench. He then took a deep breath, and lifted the 295lb barbell off the rack, and took a deep breath. He lowered the weight down with a slow and controlled motion, and at the bottom of the rep, he took one more full breath, and pushed the weight up with a loud “Gggrrrraggghhhhhh”.
What Seth saw next was proof enough that his little brother was telling the truth. The medium sized shirt which was already holding on for dear life onto the previously meaty pecs, now burst open down the middle with an explosion of muscle fibers. Adam’s chest had grown so much so quickly, that pieces of the shirt quite literally exploded off his chest. Pieces of fabric were scattered around the bench as Adam continued to push the weight up and down flawlessly. At this point, Seth was affixed to his younger brother’s chest, seeing the muscle fibers fluctuating and pulsing with every lift. The smooth tanned skin looked like it was being pushed to it’s limits having to contain the raging muscle in Adam’s torso.
After 20 reps, Adam took one final breath and swung his arms down to the ground. “Wait, my arms feel way heavier”. Adam sat up, and found that looking down on his new chest, he could no longer see his abdominals, let alone his waist. The massive shelf was protruding so far away from his rib cage, that he had to lift his arms up in order to see what weight he felt when he dropped his arms. It had looked like the bench press that he did a lot of work on his arms too. It seemed his whole body was starting to react to all kinds of training. Adam began gawking down his arms starting with his hand, seeing that his hand now looked thick and manly, like a lumberjack. It was the biggest hand that he had every seen, and looked like it was made of tough leather. He then saw his wrist that looked to be about the diameter of a PVC pipe. No way he could’ve wrapped his tiny fingers he used to have around these. He would’ve needed to use both hands. The previously pixie-stick forearms Adam carried for most of his life were now thick and meaty visible tendons of muscle that were wrapped in wide veins that ran up to his monstrous upper arm. Adam’s mountainous biceps were now only complimented by the horseshoe triceps that were now extremely visible even without flexing. Finally, looking over at his shoulder, he saw what looked like a cannonball ribbed with muscle and veins. One wiggle of his fingers, and more tendons and veins started moving and pulsing up and down both of his arms.
“So? See what I told you?” Adam said, still a bit out of breath from his set.
“I – I – I – I don’t really know what to say, kid. You were right,” Seth admitted.
“Isn’t it awesome! I’m finally huge!” Adam cheered while raising his fists and arms straight into the air. Seth amazed, looking at the two meat hooks his kid-brother now had for arms.
“Can you show me some leg workouts now? I think my upper body is good where it’s at for right now,” Adam asked excitedly.
Adam was acting like a kid in a candy store with all his excitement. Although he now had the upper body of a champion bodybuilder, he was still the young college freshman excited about everything. Seth gestured toward the squat rack and motioned Adam to get underneath the bar.
“All right, let’s do this,” Seth said, more supportively now. “How much did you squat earlier?”
“Oh, I didn’t squat earlier,” Adam explained.
Seth looked down at the tree trunk legs Adam already had and found it hard to believe that even with his new powers, that he didn’t lift anything with his legs today.
“Well, looking at your legs, you can probably get some heavy weight down, but let’s get you warmed up. We’ll start with 135 on the bar again.”
“Okay big bro, whatever you say.” Adam said.
Adam put the barbell on his neck and lowered himself down. He then looked up at Seth and said, “It doesn’t feel like there is any weight.” Adam then tensed his massive quads, and then jumped off the ground while holding the 135-pound barbell on his back. He must’ve jumped two feet in the air with that kind of power!
Seth knew that it was no longer time to joke around. Although still surprised and a bit taken back by Adam’s sudden abilities, he knew that it was now his job to train the young prodigy into being the best bodybuilder he could be. He would be his coach, his nutritionist, and most of all, his best friend. “Besides, what could go wrong?” thought Seth.
Seth then loaded the bar up with 300 pounds. He was ready to test Adam’s strength. Adam looked at the bar with excitement after seeing the large amount of weight affixed to it, and then ran underneath, pushed the bar up, and then went up and down. Like it was nothing.
Seth sighed, and said, “Okay, we need more. This isn’t enough for you to grow”. So, Seth loaded the bar up with 550 pounds, and motioned Adam to get under the bar and give it a try.
“Go on, kiddo. You can lift this easy.”
Adam positioned himself under the bar, smiled, and then stood up with the full weight of the bar on his back. He took a deep breath and then slowly lowered himself, straining himself a bit with this heavier bar. Seth then saw something truly amazing as Adam was at the bottom of his squat, trying to gather the strength to stand back up. Adam’s shoes began to rip as his toes poked out the front. His whole lower body was starting to grow. His knees began shifting outward as his legs started getting longer to support the new muscular titan. His quads and hamstrings began shifting and inflating with muscle as Adam continued to groan at the bottom of the squat. His previously decent-sized calves, being pushed up against his hamstrings, now looked like flattened cantaloupes squeezing from the pressure against his massive upper legs.
Seth also couldn’t help but notice that Adam’s package was growing as well. Filling up the young man’s soccer shorts that were once two sizes too big. It didn’t look like Adam was hard, but Seth could see his balls inflating and his dick continue to push the fabric against the shorts.
Adam then stood up with his eyes closed and with a huge exhale. “Hoooooooooooo!” yelled Seth. He opened his eyes and was looking over the top of squat rack. He was taken back by this and looked down and saw his now puny older brother looking up at him. Adam just dropped the barbell straight onto the ground and realized that with one rep of a squat, it looked like he had grown over a foot in height.
Adam then got a good look at himself and saw that he had transformed from a (what would’ve been) a champion teenage bodybuilder, to an incredible hulk with mounds of muscle slapped onto every part of his body. His thighs now looked like they had been replaced with two heaving bags of cement. His calves, diamond shaped, pulsed with power and strength with every movement his feet made. His feet were now absolutely massive and were snaked with intimidating veins. His ass had also inflated to be two basketballs, hard as a rock. He crouched a little to get out of the squat rack and took a couple of steps in his now bare feet. He went over to his brother and just stared at him.
“All right bro. You seem to know what you’re doing. Obviously, I can’t do this alone with my limited knowledge of weightlifting. And I would love to have my brother next to me while I go through whatever this is” Adam pleaded. “Partners?”
“Of course, kid. I’ll always have your back.” Seth stopped. “Wait… Adam, turn around.”
Adam turned around to reveal a cobra back that looked like it spread 5 feet from end to end. “His body must just be reacting in all kinds of crazy ways. He must’ve indirectly worked his back muscles at some point,” Seth thought to himself. Adam’s new back looked like you could land a jet on it. Absolutely rippling with hills and valleys of defined muscle twitching with every move.
“Hey kid, looks like you got a new landing strip on your back” Seth said jokingly.
“Huh, what?” Adam questioned. He ran over to the mirror (which he was now a bit too tall for, so he had to stand a bit farther back) and twisted his body to reveal wing-shaped lats that would make any weightlifter jealous. The young stud just started laughing and crying tears of joy.
He then looked over at his big brother and said, “Hey Seth, can you measure me?”
“Yeah sure, come over here, we’ll get you all measured up.” Seth said as he directed Adam towards the scale. “Alright, stand right here.”
Adam stood on the scale, and immediately felt the glass and plastic break underneath his monstrous, veiny feet. Seth sighed, “Welp. That didn’t work”. Adam chuckled a little. Seth picked up the destroyed piece of hardware and saw on the bottom that the limit of that scale was 300 pounds. Seth thought for a minute and remember that there was an old scale in one of the coach’s office that went up to 500 pounds.
They got to the coach’s door, and while Seth looked around the hallway for the hidden key he knew about, he heard a crash and saw that his younger brother just grabbed the door handle and ripped the thick wooden door right out of the frame, and tossed it to the side with his cannon arms.
“Hey bro, what do ya know? It’s open!” joked Adam.
“Show-off” scoffed Seth.
The made their way to the bigger sturdier scale, and while you could still hear creaking when Adam stepped on it, it was getting a reading. “So?! What is it?” Adam said excitedly. Adam had just realized this with his new shelf of pectorals he couldn’t look down at his feet anymore.
Seth looked down at the scale after he heard the beep, and said “Holy shit dude. You’re 455 pounds.”
Adam blushed and let out an excited yell that could’ve deafened a small room. The young titan had gained 245 pounds in just one workout. Seth then continued to take the rest of his measurements.
Bicep: 24 inches
Chest: 72 inches
Forearms: 20 inches
Thighs: 39 inches
Calves: 22 inches
“Well, I can say with confidence that you have officially outgrown most humans on earth,” Seth said.
“Really?! Are you joking? I really got that big?” Adam yelled excited.
“You betcha, kid. And judging by your recent performance. It most likely won’t stop here. Now let’s get your height.” Seth took the tape measure and had Adam hold it to his head. Final height measurement of the day was 7’8”. Just tall enough to have his head poke out above the top of squat rack and now one of the tallest people on earth.
“Seth. I want to keep growing. I want to become a beacon for people. I want to inspire them to dream big and get big. I want to make a difference,” Adam said full of hope.
“Well, let’s have you get some rest first, and we’ll pick this back up tomorrow. The gym is way past close now and we just technically broke into a coach’s office. Let’s get out of here before the police show up.” Seth explained.
“Yeah, like the puny cops could do anything to us. I’m a monster and you’re definitely a contender too. We would destroy them easy.”
“Wait, I thought you had this philosophical ‘I want to help people’ mentality with all of this. That sounded pretty threatening to me,” Seth said, confused.
“Well, let’s just say I’ll support anyone who support me. Anyone who stands in my way or hurts my family in any way will have to understand that I will have no other choice but to defend myself and my ideals.”
Seth got a small chill up his spine imaging what a complete monster this kid was could do to a couple of weak middle-aged men.
The two brothers walked back to Seth’s dorm to relax for the night. Tomorrow was a new day, and Adam was ready to continue his legacy.
