    Weight plateau

    I'm 16 years old and I've been working out for about 5 months now at Gold's Gym. Started out at 110 pounds 5'9 height and I'm still 5'9 but now I'm around 135 pounds (definitely an ectomorph body type). For some reason though, I haven't been gaining any weight after hitting 135. I eat around 2400-2600 calories a day and at least 160 grams of protein. Is this too little or do I just need to keep at it for a while longer? My strength does go up though.....I'm doing around 5-10 reps for my sets, so I'm not strength training...let me know your thoughts.
    Bodybuilding isnt 90 minutes in the gym....it's a lifestyle.

    Aim for around 200g protein.

    Eat more.

    Yes it's that simple.

    Yeah I figure that I only need to eat more, but was just finding it weird that for 135 pounds to gain more I'd need to eat more than what I already am....2600 calories and 160 g protein is pretty up there for my weight isn't it?

    eat your protein first at a meal, then eat until you can't eat anymore.
    every. single. meal.

    What do you guys think of just adding maybe a couple more tall glasses of whole milk with some peanut butter and honey mixed in? It'd be adding some more protein that's relatively cheap and easy to consume.

    Try adding whey to that as well.
