I have been having issues with this lately. I am not sure if it is because I am older or what. I spend 2 hours in the gym 3 days a week. I been at it for 6 weeks now and have noticed no new growth. I believe I lost some weight but I don't see my arms or anything getting bigger.

I wouldn't say I struggle but I know it should be easier for me. If I really stuck it out, I can probably pack on a good 10 pounds of muscle in 2 months.

@Dez: How old are you? What type of workout program? What is your diet like?

 

Realistically 6 weeks is a bit early to see major changes unless you are implementing a pretty drastic program.

 

FWIW: I am 37, follow the Leangains eating program and powerlift/Accessory lift/ use kettle bells. Started by using the 5X5 Stronglifts app and the Leangains program and then tweaked my lifting program to mirror the reddit AMA from /r/Leangains user 31minutes. Took me 12 weeks to see any real change and 9 months in it is a drastic change.

My boyfriend can put on 5lbs of muscle in 2 months. 10 sounds like it would be very hard. You must supplement or eat right haha

That seems like so much though. Do you drink any supplements?

I do basic body resistance and lift with weights. I have one of them door weights as well. I usually eat one meal packed with healthy protein before or after my work out. I am 29 btw.

I just eat nothing but meat and vegetables and use protein shakes prior to working out but I only use them a few times a week when doing this other wise I get fat cause I don't work out hard enough lol
