As a beginner that is new to weight training meaning someone who has never lifted weights before the muscles will often adapt really quickly and grow faster than someone that has been training for years. New muscle tissue is formed from stress to the muscle after a hardcore training session. After the muscle undergoes duress it is broken down. The muscles will then need to undergo the adaptation phase where new tissue will be formed and the muscle as a whole will grow bigger and stronger as a result.
when you progressively over load a particular muscle group in the body with weight training at least three to four times a week this will create the stimulus needed for the muscle to change shape and size. As prior to this the skeletal muscle in your body has never under gone this amount of overload, stress, frequency and volume it will respond very quickly when you eat and rest post workout. This whole process can be repeated week after week in the gym for about three years before it starts to slow down
