Remember: The bodybuilder's physique is a carefully balanced combination of many factors, including shape, proportion, and symmetry, to achieve a great physique you need time, energy, dedication, positive mindset and, commitment.  Let say that you are a beginner and you follow some of the gym programs and develop some good muscle mass but you are not able to develop more but you don't want to stop here at that point so you are willing to go for more, then to gain an extra mass and develop your muscles more after you reach 15 - 20  pounds of muscle mass you will have to combine more exercises and include more sets in your workouts.
