I feel depressed to read that you can only gain one pound of muscle per week. I’m currently bulking and thought two pounds per week was a reasonable goal. Im 22, 6’1” and started out at 175lbs. After two weeks I’m now at 180 and don’t think I put on any fat. My goal is 200 lbs with below 10% body fat, I’m currently at 11%. But if half the weight I’m gaining is not muscle, then when I get to 200 in 10 weeks I’ll have an extra ten pounds of fat, which will put me at 15% body fat… guess I have to slow down and take a solid five months to get to 200lbs. When I first started weight training in high school, I went from 150 to 175 in three months, without gaining fat, but I guess that was the early results phase.
I am 20 years old, 126 pounds, I have been going to gym doing whatever I want, sometimes following program sometimes not. Been eating enough protein which is 126 gram per day, however , my weight doesn't gain after 3-4 months of training, very embarrassing, what have I been doing wrong, I havnt been tracking my carbs intake, is that the only problem because I assume I should have some gain even not following program, also I want to look good and become strong, I don't want to look like powerlifters, are there anyways I can find the correct programs since there are tons on the Internet?
also, how much fat do I need, I have been avoiding fat in my diet, I cut them out from my meat, is it wrong?,
is diet my main program
I work really hard in the gym but no gains
