    1 Year Progress need help

    Hi this is my 1 year progress.

    Age: 24
    Height: 6'
    Weight: currently 128
    Diet: clean with alot of meat, some carbs and healthy stuff; eating 5 times a day
    Workout: 2 Day split, 1 rest day in between with cardio

    Questions:

    1. Is it normal that my progress is this slow? Although have never lifted before I started I think thats not enough for 1 year. Got sick all the time the first 3 months of lifting.
    2. I lost about 10 pounds in that one year. Is that normal?
    3. Do I need to get stronger? With most exercises I feel the burn after 8-12 reps and won't go on then but I am doing slow reps ( 3-2-3)


    Any help/criticism is appreciated!

    What do you Squat , Bench, Deadlift?
    what program did you use if any?

    you mention diet but you clearly haven't been eating enough to gain weight, you need to increase your calorie intake.

    1. no.
    2. You should be gaining weight. Eat more.
    3. Yes if you want to grow. Burn is most inconsequential for you at this time, you need to increase weight on the big compounds.
    Slow reps is also without much benefit, in particular you shouldn't be slowing down the concentric. Eccentric in some movements for hypertrophy and technique.
    But again you need to be focusing on the compounds.

    Your diet sucks. Plain and simple. At your size, you should have been gaining 20-25lbs over the past year, not losing 10lbs.
    You can't help the hopeless.

    You’ll know if you are building muscle if you have added significant weight on the main lifts and accessory movements over time.

    I think pretty much everyone on this site would strongly recommend you aim to gain weight not lose it considering your age and current body comp. Eat more, fck eating clean, just eat more. Aim to gain 1kg or so a week and lift heavy, find a solid routine with the big lifts.

    My goal actually is to gain weight. I will try to get stronger from now on.

    Is there really no difference between the 2 pics? I gained a little muscle right?

    Cannot tell a difference at all, gain ~40 pounds over the next 1-2 years and post again. Also get on a real routine and proper diet.

    NUTRITION


    This is the largest factor in your success, learn the basics to get started and then move into more advanced if needed.

    BASICS
    Spoiler!


    Sources and More Information


    TRAINING

    Start with a solid beginner routine, these are designed to get the most for you; they are designed by professionals and use progressive overload. Read through them and pick the one you like most, follow it as it is written.

    SUPPLEMENTS


    Remember one thing, supplements are only that; they supplement something and are never meant to be replacements. A multivitamin will not replace fruits and vegetables, a fat burner will not replace a caloric deficit, and a meal replacement is not meant to be your only source of calories.

    This is a brief run down of the 'basics', for further breakdowns of specific ingredients (like Yohimbe, Forskolin, Glycerol, ect) more research on your part would be needed.

    Agree with the above with one addition: keep it simple! There's a lot to take in so I'd suggest you start by focussing on two things:

    1) STOP your current training program. START a program like Starting Strength or StrongLifts 5x5. These programs will train your entire body, are incredibly simple and will get you seriously strong! Set ambitious goals for your main lifts: squat, deadlift and bench press.

    2) Up your calorie intake. The science is simple: eat more calories than you burn = weight gain. It's surprisingly hard to eat a calorie surplus so first calculate your required calories per day then work out what this looks like over 3-6 meals (your preference). Over a couple of months you'll start to understand if you're gaining muscle, gaining fat or not gaining, and you can adjust the amunt you're eating.

    gbullock32's post (above) has a ton of links to calorie calculators, macro calculators (for a balanced diet), Starting Strength and Stronglifts 5x5.

    Good luck!
