I’ve been lifting near two years now and my strength is poor. I have been going to the gym consistently during this period as well. I also lift using mainly compound movements but struggle to get stronger. My size has increased during this period about 15kg.
You should try stronglifts 5x5 or starting strength. You said that u struggle to get stronger. Maybe u should work on your form for the compound movements. Give theese programs some time. Eventually u will progress.

That’ll work fine… as long as you eat enough to support recovery and growth. If you’re not gaining bodyweight every single week, you need to bump up your calories (from carbs, fats, and protein).
