Thanks for the response!
I would say I am just hitting a plateau now, as I did gain about twenty-two pounds before I hit this stalemate. Although I am happy to say that I have been consistently around 173 pounds since I got back from vacation, woohoo!
As far as my routine, I have completely cut out cardio aside from a quick warm up before I lift. I'm usually not in the gym longer than a hour, and have been doing each muscle group once a week with some success lately.
I mix in full body, compound type lifts with some isolation stuff with all my workouts.
Also trying in the last few weeks to eat literally as much as I can, focusing on the carbs and what not. Hopefully I'll be able to bulk for a few months, then cut a bit and repeat the process.
Thanks for your help!
New query though. Through my years of inactivity, my dominant arm(right) has gotten both stronger and slightly bigger in size than my left. I have been trying to focus on only doing arm exercises for my left so it can catch up, my thinking being that my right arm/shoulder get a good enough workout for now during chest/back days.
Is this a good idea? Isolating the left arm? Or should I be doing both arms and it'll eventually catch up on it's own?
It seems like it doesn't want to put mass on at all ha
