    Getting stong but no weight gain

    BBing please advise.

    I am currently in Afghanistan, work out 3days 1 off schedule. Currently 150lbs with around 8% BF.

    My bench has gone up from 175 to 215 in 2 month. I can do 225 about 5 times now.
    DL went from 195 to 285. I can do 285 about 3 times.
    Squats went from 200 to 250. I can do 250 about 3 times.

    I take Protein 4 times a day(1scoop). Eat 3times a day at our lovely dining facility YUCK... but healthy.
    i have been stuck at 150 for about 7years now.
    I am getting stronger but i would really love to put on some lbs.. like up to 175.
    here is my routine.

    Monday: BP x 3, DBP x3, Incline BP x 3, Flys x 3 all freeweights we dont have any machines here. preacher curl x 3, hammer curl x3
    Tuesday: BB Row x4, DL x5, Pull ups x 3, DB pull x3.
    Wednesday: SQ x 5, Military press x 4, lateral raise x 3, shrugs x3.
    thursday: bike 15 min
    friday: same as monday and so on.

    I also take Assault fro pre workout. I use to do alot of isolation exercises but i wasn't going anywhere so when I deployed i started doing DL, SQ, BP as compound exercise. I am getting stronger but still no weight gain..

    SO what am i doing wrong.. my friend that works out same as me has gained 10 pounds in 2 month with same strength gain.

    please help.

    Weight gain is a matter of consuming more than you burn (i.e. calorie surplus). If you haven't been gaining weight, it's because your activity out weighs your intake.

    EAT MORE!!! If you find you have a hard time getting the required intake in, you may want to consider counting calories.






    FWIW, eating clean or healthy doesn't have sh*t to do with weight gain.

    Thank.

    You need to eat more. Find some calorie dense foods. Natty PB and choco milk are 2 of my favs. Easily available in the desert.

    Buy peanut butter and ice cream and eat some before bed. Done. And strength doesn't always lead to size and vice versa; they help each other, but they're two different things. With strength, you're teaching your nervous system to lift heavy weights, so you can still gain strength even on a cut/maintenance, but size (muscles) come from a caloric surplus and progressive tension overload.
    Always learning.

    (For 5 reps)
    Squat - 110kg
    Deadlift- 115kg
    Bench Press - 65kg
    Overhead Press - 47.5kg

    These are all good answers. Mainly it's just eating as much as freaking possible brotha. You can do it.

    It's true that you have to eat more, but don't just go and eat a bunch of food unless you plan on getting fat. Count calories and track macros and eat about 250-300 above your maintenance calories.

    This make sense.. I will try PB with icecream ( we have plenty of those here).
    thanks for all the advise.. i guess just eat more is the answer.

    I concur with the responses suggesting to increase your caloric intake. Strength (neural) gains aren't directly correlated with weight gain.
    Bodybuilding is 60% training and 50% diet. Yes that adds up to 110%, because that's what you should be giving it. Change the inside, and the physique will follow.

    peanut butter - 100 cal per TBSP

    milk - 2,000 calories per gallon (2,400 in whole milk)

    knock down a quart every night for an extra 500 cal.
    O35 and enjoying life.
