How can I gain muscle

So I’m 6ft and 155 pounds. I have been working out for 5 years now and haven’t seen much progress. I cannot seem to find a way to increase my arm size and I’m trying to get to 170 pounds. What is the best way I can gain about 15 pounds of muscle?

I registered for this exam when I wanted to get into fitness industry but I no longer intend to. It's just so happens that the exams are only held during weekdays, and I need to go to work. Does anyone know what's going to happen? Like what would show up in my ACE personal page, etc.

Over the years transformation????

Question for trainers or experienced body builders Why is it that the body builders today are extremely vascular and cut. Back in the Arnold days, the competitors were not nearly as ripped as they are today... So what’s different? The supplements? The diet?

What is the hardest area on the body for you to teach on how to train?

For some reason for me, it's the abdominals. I give cues like curl the pelvis under and leave it there, put your feet up higher on the ball, breathe out when going, etc. Anytime I give a cue, they never due it. They wonder why their back hurts, so I explain, aaaaaaaaand they keep doing the same...

Eat your vegies

Too many trainers focus on macronutrient ratios and timing and blah blah, when some more very basic things are missed - are they eating any fruit and vegies? If you get a 40yo accountant or 35yo soccer mum, both of whom are overweight with back pain, is their issue really that they're having 110g...
