Muscle/bone limitation

Does anyone know of biomechanical limits of bones in terms of weightlifting.
Would a bone suddenly snap,fracture at what percentage of body weight?
Could the tolerance be slowly raised through gradual increase in weight
lifting? If so, is there a finite limit for this tolerance?
The same w/ muscles, can a muscle increase in size/strength indefinately, or
is there a finite limit?
Thanks
Aaron
