I’ve read a few post regarding this subject before posting this, however most of the post were from guys that started on the complete opposite side of the spectrum than me, some of them training muscle groups once per week.
So I started out 5-months ago, and training mostly all compound movements, with a few isolation exercises for the delts, trapz, and smaller groups. However, most of my training is Weighted Dips, Weighted Diamonds, Weighted Pull Ups, Weighted Push Ups, and Weighted Planks for Sit-Ups.
I’ve trained every muscle group 3x per week using the above methods. I started at 145 lbs soaking wet, after 5-months I am now up to 172. The first 5 months, I noticed rapid gains in muscle and over-all weight. However, this month I’ve started to hit a plateau. My weight the past few weeks has became pretty steady hoovering around the 170 mark and the rapid gains have slowed.
Now the question comes in could this be due to my training, or possibly that my additional weight class, needs additional calories to keep going?
However, I’m mainly concerned about, is this a time that I should be switching from hitting every group 2x a week vs my current 3x per week? I’m still noticing rapid gains in certain groups for instance my deltoids and trapz, however my biceps and triceps have seemed to slow down from the original pace?
Any help would be appreciated!
