When I started in Jan I measured my entire legs arms chest etc.
I have been working hard at the gym, eating high protein ect.
My work outs are either splits or full body with a focus on compound lifts (bench, deads, squats and shoulder press)
I measure my self to day and I am exactly size in every body part!
Only I am 10 pounds lighter.
I feel like giving up! Don?t know what I have done wrong. I felt like I was doing really well.

Sounds like you gained muscle, but lost fat. Those 1rm #s are kilos?
What's your schedule/routine like?
For me, I've found pushing BIG weight in the 4-6 rep range is the best way to gain size and strength. The only muscles I train with high reps are calves, abs, and SOMETIMES shoulders and back, because those are the muscles where I need big endurance for my job.

How much are you eating? Are you eating a lot after lifting. I try to cram in 2000+ cals after lifting, as much carbs and protein as possible. Usually 3 scoops of whey+a bannana+ a liter of skim mill right after working out.

If you're wanting to get bigger and heavier in the long run, you're going to need to eat more. But be wary of fat gains, and you will have to train very hard, eat clean, and perhaps do some cardio here and there.
The main Q is whether you look better in the mirror compared to 6 months ago. Not really about scale numbers.My routine:
Mon - Biceps
Tues - Triceps
Wed - Biceps
Thurs - Triceps
Fri - Biceps
Sat - Triceps
Sun - Rest
You can't see back and legs, don't waste your time with that nonsense!

Yes you are right i am worried about gaining fat as thats y i started training again, I had a fat belly.
I think i need to make a record, and cut till i get to about 7% or 8% body fat percentage.
I am at 12% - 13% now. then i can go on a bulk and eat more.
so new plan is cut to 7/8% fat, then bulk untill i reach 10% fat then cut again down to 7/8%.... so that will be cut for 2 months bulk 2 months etc...
What u think?
