    Why aren't results coming quick enough?

    I'm 17 years old, and have been going to the gym since I was 15. I don't think I'm as big as I should be considering I've been working out for almost 2 years.

    I started off at 107 pounds, and I'm currently around 135-138. However, I've been this weight for a very long time, more than a year. Though, I recently gained strength when I started doing 5x5.

    I go to the gym 4-5 days a week, but I'm active almost everyday. I don't count my calories, but I have 4 meals a day and try to eat as much as I can. I get around 6-7 hours of sleep on most nights.

    Do you guys have any tips on what I can do to my workout, diet or lifestyle to get bigger/ gain muscle?

    I wasn't able to post links, but if anybody needs photos to see my progress, you can check my page. Thanks!

    idk man keep eating more? I don't even count macros yet when I wanna lose weight/when I wanna gain weight I just do it. like idk, I don't need to count macros like I know when I'm eating at a surplus like I keep an ideal amount of cals I'm eating. Like I've lost 20lbs before and gained 30lbs back within 3 months after the cut for wrestling. Like I just know how to cut weight/gain weight (I wrestled so maybe that's why).

    like **** I lost weight but now I'm gaining it all back hit like 200 today

    You're still young and growing,don't sweat it. But yeah,i'd cut back a bit on your gym time-all that is burning more calories than you're eating.And if you want mass-little or no cardio-period.Eat,eat,eat and make sure you have rest/recovery days,you build muscle while resting,not during gym time.

    If you have not tracked your calories before than I highly recommend you do it for a while at least till you have a rough idea. There is a chance you are not eating as much as you think.

    Track. Your. Calories.
    Recommended rest time is 8 hours and I find that suits me. Eat like a horse bro... I know it's summer and all but I'd highly recommend slow bulking, at least until winter.
