Basically I'm 19 and I've been weightlifting for almost 2 years now.
My diet's clean and has been for a couple of months. I do have the odd cheat-snack and I do drink on weekends but I don't eat junk all the time and I do some carb cycling to become leaner and lose out on some body fat.
I eat 2000-2500 calories a day, high carb days are 450ish carbs, low carb days 77 carbs, medium 192. Every day I eat more than 192g protein.
I weight approximately 70kg and I'm 6'3.
I have an extremely high metabolism and I have 2 protein shakes a day with flax seeds and take 2 BCAA's with every meal, and pre and post workout.
I haven't been getting the 'cut' abs I want and I'm not putting on any more size, I'm just getting stronger. 2 months ago I could bench approximately 3 reps of 80kg. I tried maxing out the other day and managed to lift 5 reps of 100kg, yet I look no better.
My problem is, I'm not sure what I should do. Either stick to what I'm doing and wait longer for the results I want, or try something new?
I'm looking for some advice on as to what you'd do if you were in my position. Would you take a mass gainer and bulk up more/put on more weight perhaps? Or would you carry on doing what I'm doing? Maybe introduce a new form of supplementation or alter my diet?
I want to stay lean. I've never been fat in my life and I've always had abs. It's only recently that they've stopped showing. So I'm worried that if I start eating a lot more or taking some sort of mass gainer I'll lose my abs. Anyone have an insight on this?
