    Struggling to lift heavier weights - Why is that?

    I’m finding it difficult to gain muscle mass mainly in my arms (biceps, triceps, forearms) despite I’ve been going to gym for 5 and half years now. I go to the gym on weekdays (3 days lifting weights, 2 days working on my core.

    I feel like giving up due not only struggling to get results but also the process of dieting and not being able to lift heavier weights. The heaviest dumbbell I could lift is 14kg and for almost year I still can’t lift any heavier.

    What is your height and weight? Age?

    What did you weigh a year ago? 2 years ago? What workout are you following? (Please don't list day and body part, but what you DO each workout.)
