    Follow a program for at least 3 months (some would argue longer). It usually takes that long to evaluate whether or not it is working. Avoid workout program ADD. It's hard to do, especially for some of us who are actually attention deficit, but it is really important. Just stick to a routine, know your TDEE, eat your Macros, get enough sleep, and you will see gains. Oh, and do NOT compare yourself to others in terms of gains. Our genetics are all so different. You will grow faster than some, and slower than others, and it does not matter at all.

    Who told you light weight was the key to gains? Try progressive overload instead. And eat enough to move the scale by 3-4 lbs a month.

    I think you should deload for a week and your gains will really show, try to get down to 75lb deadlift.

    You are definitely on the right track with squats and deadlifts but DO NOT lift light weight. It will not get you "tone" and it does not help cut bodyfat like some retards think. It will tell your body it's ok to break down the muscle if needed since you aren't using it. Whether cutting or bulking you need to ALWAYS lift heavy. The only thing that you would change between these two phases is your diet in terms of the number of calories you're eating.

    Does the PB brand matter? Maybe you should use all natural brand.

    and always eat peanut butter following a workout.

    STRIKE ONE

    it was all Muscle and Fitness magazine stuff based on isometric exercises by bodybuilders.
    STRIKE TWO

    Breakfast: Bowl of cereal and a bagel,
    Lunch: Turkey and Cappicola sandwich
    Supper: Turkey, mashed potatoes, corn, cole slaw.
    Evening: Carrots and Ranch dressing.

    YER OUTTA HERE!


    okay, seriously for a minute, MENNITI:


    what article recommended peanut butter after a workout??

    instead of "isometric" is it possible you meant to say ISOLATION????


    and last: the "diet"????????

    c'mon, this is the only part that really made me think you are trolling us.


    What these 3 things tell us , is that you are probably doing EVERYTHING wrong, including how you do the exercises...


    best recommendation: HIRE A TRAINER!!!!!!!!!!
    Lift as MUCH as you can, for as MANY reps as you can,
    while in complete control of the exercise.

    I wish I had 15.5 inch arms on a small frame. What's your secret MENNITI?
    Are you a fitness model? I just bought a jar of peanut butter too.
