Lately, I read lots of the posts from this forum. I found that most of you guys seem to be so piece of cake to increase strength, bulk and lose body fat.
I have been working out for almost 1 and half year without some significant gains. I’ve been spending money buying books offered by bodybuilders and followed them but haven’t got results too.
I workout 4 times a week.
My strength never went up or if it did, probably a tiny bit. My abs, however, seemed to be the the same all the time or even get bigger. My arms only around 13.5 to 13.75 and never go pass beyond 14".
I bench press only probably 100 lbs. I am so in awe with you guys that can lift above your body weight.
I am just not sure what’s going wrong with me.
I am a small guy 5’6 and 140-142lbs. I never tried those fat caliper stuff since the accuracy varies. So i depend on the way i look and how my pant fits me.
As my diet goes, i eat almost 7 times a day with pretty similar content for between meals. I am a college student so it’s just so damn hard to create wonderful meals.
I was raised in Asian heritage so white rice is almost in every meals and easy to prepare.
I also followed Mr. Berardi guide about the nutrition (protein+fat;carb+protein)
My caloric level right now is 3000 cals. Also, not sure if too much or too little.
I just realized yesterday that all the hard work never give me any results. Well, at some point yes, but it’s not really significant. There are ups and downs of course for everybody in gaining muscle and losing fat but for me it’s just too many downs.
I am considering to quit cause i am tired of all the sacrifice without results…
Can someone please please help me out?
