    Stopped growing

    I've been working out roughly around two years and have had a significant amount of muscle gain in that time. Now,all of the sudden it seems that it has stopped. Changed workouts and always taking my protein. What am I doing wrong?

    I eat all day long. Some stuff I know I shouldn't be eating but I'm still trying to get that down. I'm 6' 235 pounds.

    6' 235# isn't bad. Where is your BF%? Sometimes when the weight stops going up there is still progress but they are gains in different places. Has strength stopped improving as well? No fat loss? ...

    Take a vacation from the weights. Get in some spinning classes and check out some ass.

    get out of the gym your mind and body will love you for it when you return.

    No fat loss but that's because I eat a lot of things I probably shouldn't. My BF is 20.0 last I checked a few days ago. Strength wise it feels like I haven't lost anything. Some days are good some are bad.

    If I stay out of the gym then I'll lose my strength and have to work it back up right?

    Wait unitl you finally get serious and cut some BF then your strength will really go down lol. Bro you got to use to the enhanced help and now being natty you won't see the same results even at 5 days a week lifting. Should try to change it every 2 weeks with reps/weight/routine just to shock the muscles see if that helps. To be honest a week out of there isn't a bad idea last time that helped out a ton but hard to do. You know my goal so I'll be there no matter what with vacation coming up. Plenty of good info here if you search the forum thats why I pointed you to this board.

    Yeah,there's lots of good and useful info on here. Seems like if you want to get anywhere the "enhanced help" is the only way to go. Being stuck at the same size doesn't give me any more motivation to continue but I do it anyway.

    Out of curiosity have you ever input what you eat to see how many calories and macros you actually do eat? Try it on myfitnesspal.com

    Same size? Scale doesn't mean your the same size your as big as I am or bigger at this point. Worry less about the scale and more about the mirror I have cut down to 191lbs from 225lbs and not lost to much size. Keep this in mind at 235lbs and 20% body fat thats 47lbs of fat so lean body mass is 188lbs so realistically at around 200-210lbs done right you would look leaner and more defined this will also give the illusion your bigger than your are.

    No,I never keep track of what I eat. I just eat and go. I've tried using that app but couldn't get into the habit of using it.

    I don't mean scale wise. I can just see in the mirror that I'm not increasing in size. All of my fat is mostly in my stomach. I'd like to do abs but bad lower back stops me most of the time.
