Sure they have. We've known the formula for decades and decades now.
Eat a shit ton.
Lift a shit ton.
that's basically it. I spent whole summers eating until I would gag on food. If you're a skinny guy there is always a rite of passage that must occur where you have to go through this in order to grow. The body doesn't want to grow muscle unless you TELL it to. This just means eating a shit ton of food, and living under the bar for a while. Add more weight to the bar over time, or more reps with that weight, and keep eating, and you'll grow.
It's not complicated.
