I normally just read through posts, and not post my own topics as much... i've been lifting for about a year seriously, and am happy with my gains but I just cannot seem to gain weight. I dont think my frame could get much bigger than it is now without gaining. I'm 20 years old, soon to be 21 in 2 months.. i'm 5'11 and about 158lbs.. for the past month i've been eating like CRAZY (yes, counting calories and things) and I havent gained an ounce from when I used to eat low calorie. I am seriously considering steroids and want to know you're opinions on them, and which may benefit me the most so that I can do research and decide if it's right for me, and how to properly admistrate them. I'd prefer to stay away from needles, but as I've read the pills are killer on the liver... So please, a few opinions, no bashing.
its simple cals in vs cals out. if you take in more than you burn, you will gain weight(period). so my guess is your diet isnt on par. i would post your diet, and macros in the diet section. try bumping your kcals by 500. if you start to gain weight within a week, keep them there until weight gain halts.. then bump them again.

But my routine looks decent right? ill lower the triceps, but i read some of hte stickies and got the routine from that kinda...
I'm no expert, but I think you should retool your routine.
There are plenty of pre-made routines that you could do. There are some in the stickies that would really help you. You could do something a bit more exotic like Power/Rep Range/Shock or Bill Starr's 5x5. But you'd probably get a lot of benefit from a basic, compound lifting, routine in the stickies.
