    Working out every single day for almost 2 whole months with very little results

    For almost 2 months Ive been working out every single day and Ive gained very little results. I work on 2 muscle groups per day while upping the weight every time I work on my set. I understand these things do take time but after working out every single day I would've expected a little more.

    Age? Weight? Height?

    What has your weight done in in the 2 months?

    What are you benching? Squating? Deadlifting?

    I assume at 6' and 155 you are trying to put on size, yes?

    That all comes down to how many calories you consume. Are you familiar with the term TDEE?

    TDEE; gotta be above it to gain weight.

    No matter what calculator, app or science you use, if you haven't been gaining weight, you haven't been in a surplus. You have to eat more.

    Try to get into a surplus with whole foods first
    chicken
    beef
    pasta
    breads
    peanut butter
    avacado
    fish
    nuts
    and all the bulking foods everyone always talks about; see the nutrition section too.

    If you have a hard time getting into a surplus with whole food, that's when I would recommend a weight gain style supplement (powder drinks, shakes etc...)
    If you added 1 or 2 of these a day I would think thta would help.
    Mix up a shake with
    weght gain powder
    milk
    oats
    nuts
    banana
    peanut butter

    phukkin love those!

    Keep working at it but bottom line is you haven't been consuming enough calories so just spinning your wheels.

    That's a lot of volume; what's the frequency? What's the weekly layout?

    Yeah thats a load of volume for someone to be able to do. I think cutting back on the amount volume and working on making your reps count for more. For example instead of 3x12 for Bicep Curls think more like this.

    Example:
    Bicep Curls
    Set 1, 12 rep (easy weight for warmup)
    Set 2, 12 rep (keep increasing weight until its hard to finish the sets.
    Set 3, 10-12
    Set 4, 8-10

    Also keep in mind the time under tension, dont finish 12 reps in 12 seconds. Focus on both the phases of the exercise and control the weight while properly engaging the muscle.
    My bet is youll lower a lot of weight a good Time Under Tension recommended by others (too lazy to find articles) is around 45 seconds. Maybe checkout AthleanX, genious in the field.

    I have shoulders but it was just a link to a bodybuilding.com article to a list of shoulder exercises.

    Weekly layout is something like this
