So I’ve been lifting serious for about half a year but all in all around a year.
When I did start lifting serious I got on an upper/lower split, I was on that for a few months before it started wearing me down and making me lose energy and motivation. I did gain a little size with it though.
For about 2 months now I’ve been on sort of a full body hybrid (Mondays full body + chest/back focus, Wednesday full body + legs focus and Fridays full body + shoulders/arms focus).
I’ve made a lot of strength gains using this routine but honestly I don’t see much change in my physique. From now and back until I started the U/L split, I feel like I’ve gotten bigger, weight has gone up but the pics aren’t showing it.
I seem to be putting on weight really slow though, I’ve always been small and have a hard time putting on any weight, got it from dad’s side.
I’m thinking of maybe lowering the weights a little and upping the reps, switch from a 8-12 to maybe 10-15 or something and see how my body will react to that.
Do you guys maybe have any other ideas, something I could try?
I eat all my meals and drink at least 3L of water everyday. Snack a bit too between meals, typically fruit or have a shake, things like that.
EDIT: Maybe this is just the way I’m set up genetically?
I do realise this is all a work in progress, but surely there should be some more visible change in my pics after 6 months? Been taking pics every other week.
