Hey all, I need help I’ve been trying to “train” a freind of mine. I just don’t get it his body will not progress, he’s been working out for a couple of years and asked me for help. We’re about the same size I’m 20lbs heavier than him. his bench is stuck at at about 300lbs, but he does sets with 275. squat is about 315lbs and deadlift is about 365lbs. his diet is high in protien and to high in carbs.
his stats are 34y/o 6’2" 250lbs he has muscle but it just seems weak for his size and with the intensity of our workouts. I’ve tried doing different variations of high volume low weight to doing sub sets with damn near max weight trying to get his power up. we’ve tried speed work to slow-slow negatives and then I was pissed for a couple of weeks and we did burnouts after our main (compound)workout were we lifted till we could not move, nothing seems to work. I just had never saw or heard of somebody who wants to increase get there body, their hole body stuck. he also had taken so time out of the gym to recuperate. HELP ME, HELP HIM.
