I am 20 years old, 126 pounds, I have been going to gym doing whatever I want, sometimes following program sometimes not. Been eating enough protein which is 126 gram per day, however , my weight doesn't gain after 3-4 months of training, very embarrassing, what have I been doing wrong, I havnt been tracking my carbs intake, is that the only problem because I assume I should have some gain even not following program, also I want to look good and become strong, I don't want to look like powerlifters, are there anyways I can find the correct programs since there are tons on the Internet?
also, how much fat do I need, I have been avoiding fat in my diet, I cut them out from my meat, is it wrong?,
is diet my main program
I work really hard in the gym but no gains
How about this routine
DB palms in bench press 4 sets of 5 reps
DB incline bench two arm row or wide grip lat pull down 4 sets of 5 reps
Wed: DB Squats or DB Stationary Lunges 4 sets of 5 reps
Fri: DB pull over 4 sets rep goal 32
Mon: DB deadlift or DB Stiff leg deadlift 4 sets rep goal 29
Wed: DB palms in incline bench press 4 sets rep goal 29
DB incline bench two arm row or close grip reverse lat pulldown 4 sets rep goal 29
Fri: DB Goblet Squat or DB Stationary lunges 4 sets rep goal 54
The second half of the program is all about maximizing size with slightly higher reps and an emphasis on intensity. Rep ranges move up to 10-12 for most exercises, which is ideal for promoting muscle hypertrophy (growth). Overall volume increases slightly during these two weeks, mainly due to the addition of isolation exercises that you’ll perform before compound movements for your chest, back, shoulders and legs. Called pre-exhaustion, this technique dramatically increases workout intensity. You fatigue the main target muscle with an isolation exercise, then hit it in this fatigued state with a compound move, which if done right will lead to your main muscle failing before assistance muscles give out. (For example, for chest the dumbbell flye hits the pecs directly, so your triceps shouldn’t end up being the weak link and cause the termination of the set during the bench press).
