I'm new here (as you can see), so I just wanted to say hi before I dive right in to my problem/question. This looks like a great forum with a lot of knowledgeable members, so I'm really glad I was able to find it.
Alright, here's my dilemma. I've been lifting weights on and off for the last year, but have become really serious about it over the last three months. I've always had real trouble getting stronger, but it's gotten to the point that I honestly haven't been able to add any weight to almost all of my major lifts in the last 2 months (I'm literally lifting exactly the same amounts as I was 2 months ago, and they aren't feeling any lighter).
I'm 18 years old, 6' tall and weigh 170-ish pounds. I've been eating around 4000 calories a day (all from clean food sources), and making sure that I get 8 hours of sleep each night. As far as my routine goes, I've been working out with a one-on, one-off schedule alternating between two workouts (ex. workout A on Monday, Tuesday is off, workout B on Wednesday, Thursday is off, workout A on Friday, Saturday is off, workout B on Sunday, etc.). Here are the workouts I've been doing:
BB Military Presses - Warm up set, 5 work sets of 5-6 reps, one finishing set to failure (using approximately 20% less weight than the work sets)
Bent BB Rows - Same as military presses (one warm up set, 5 work sets of 5-6 reps, and one finishing set to failure)
Pull Ups - 3 sets to failure (just using my bodyweight)
DB Lateral Raises - 1 to 2 sets of 8-12 reps
Bent DB Lateral Raises - 1 set of 8-12 reps
Power Cleans - 5 sets of 3 reps
BB Shrugs - 4 sets of 8-12 reps
DB Hammer Curls - 2 to 3 sets of 8 reps
BB Squats - Warm up set, 3 work sets of 5-6 reps
Hindu (bodyweight) Squats - 3 sets to failure
BB Bench Press - Warm up set, 3 work sets of 5-6 reps
Elevated push ups - 2 sets of 25 reps
Deadlifts - 2 sets of 5 reps
Since my calories are so high, and I've been gaining some weight (not a ton, but it's noticeable), I don't think lack of calories would be the issue. I've also been getting enough sleep, so that's why I'm pretty puzzled as to why my lifts wouldn't be going up even a little bit. The only thing I could think of is that I might be doing too many sets of certain exercises, but that still wouldn't explain why I'm not getting any stronger with my squats/bench presses. I'm just completely confused as to why I can't get any stronger.
My apologies for the long post, but I wanted to try and give you guys as much information as possible in case you have any ideas as far as why this might be happening/what I'm doing wrong.
Anyways, thanks for taking the time to read this! If there's anything else you need to know in order to help me out, please let me know and I'll be more than happy to give you the info.
