I’ve been lifting on and off for 8 years now. In that time I have not seen the type of improvement I’d hoped to see. I am sure this type of thing has been posted a million times over. But I’m not here to whine, just looking for new ideas.
I have done strong lifts 5x5, Crossfit, calisthenics, trx, and kettlebell training over the past 8 years. I have tried eating over 3000 calories a day for months at a time.
I recently had to have parathyroid surgery on my neck, and am recovering from a lower leg injury that has had me on crutches for 2 weeks. So right now I’m honestly at my lowest point.
The reason I am creating this post is to try to get ideas on what direction to go with my training. My goal is to gain weight and muscle mass. I know I need to eat as much as possible, but the training that I have been trying hasn’t given me the results I’m looking for.
I don’t know anyone else that has as hard of a time gaining weight as me. I’ve had friends that do the exact same workouts I do get big , while I’m stuck at the same weight and strength.
I’m throwing myself at the mercy of the internet here. What can I do to gain size and strength? I currently weigh 150 lbs (my heaviest). I am 31 years old. My height is 5’10". Body fat percentage is very low. Thank you to anyone who takes the time to read this and reply. I’m desperate.
