Advice Needed


I’m in need of advice. I’ve been training for 2 years consistently. I’m 5’9, went from 160 lbs (32 inch waist) to 180 lbs (34.5 in waist). Then cut down to 170 lbs with 32 inch waist. I’ve used an upper/lower split 4 days per week which brought my lifts up to this:

5 RM
Squat: 240x5
Bench: 195x5
Deadlift: 310x5
Press: 135x5

I’ve cycled between 180 and 170 around 3 times hoping to gain some strength/LBM and lose fat but this wasn’t working. I can gain weight easily and lose it easily as well, but LBM is never going up !
