Sorry to sort of hijack this thread but I had to ask as its super frustrating.
Any advice?
If you arent gaining weight, you have to eat more. Nothing else to it. Shove your face with some good protein and lift heavy weights 3 times a week.

Thanks for the replies guys! Sounds like I gotta go make a sammich, hit up the reps and just keep up the determination. Much appreciated fellas.

Only rely on protein so much. If your drinking a shit ton of it your body is passing alot of it as waste. Try to eat more real food eggs red meats chinese ftw. lol All serious tho dont worry about weight so much as how you feel and how you look. weight is just a number. I was my strongest when i was as light as ive been in 9 years. If you want to put on size stick to your core lifts. Your squats deads cleans bench. Im 26 been lifting since i was 12. Definatley don't know everything there is to know. The best thing is to you got to find what works best for you and what you like as it wont be the same as everyone else. Stick with it and go hard.

I knew drinking too much protein wasn't going to do me any good I try to stick to just one a day. I guess I should focus more on how I look as I do have an athletic body (albeit it skinny) I just want to be more defined and in the process be able to gain a few pounds.

Thanks for the great tips tho man certainly much appreciated.

Nice I'll look into that then cause I'm definitely that stubborn weight gainer with having such a fast metabolism. Thanks again dude!

I'm so beat up from board sports, I don't lift nearly as much as I used to, but I still do some really good stuff. I spend a lot of time with cardio, stretching and doing core work. I also get in pull-ups, dips and push-ups, but my shoulders are not in great shape from spills....

how long are your guy's workout sessions? mine seems to be getting longer and longer now that i wanna work on more muscle groups at the same time since there aren't enough days in the week for me to work on them seperately (including rest days). before i would do 1 muscle group a day: biceps, shoulders, chest, legs, abs, triceps and those already took an hour... Now i'm trying to work out my abs 3-4 times a week and i'm going from an hour workout to almost an hour and 45 mins. I wanna stay longer but i get hungry and just leave haha (i workout after work).

i've been going since the summer time, and thus far, i've seen some improvement, my chest has gotten bigger and my tricepts have grown a bunch. but i'm considering staying at the gym for 2 hours now just so i can work on a 2nd group of muscles. an hour for 1 group may seem like alot of time already but just seeing what you guy's routines are

my routine when i work out:

1st set: start off with the heaviest i can do, 8 reps, then immediate go down a notch, usually 10 pounds lighter, do 8 reps, then go down 1 more notch, and pump out 8-15 reps depending how light the weight is.
2nd set: as heavy as i can 8 reps.
3rd set: repeat.

My workuots range from about 45 to an hour. I don't have the time or desire to spend 2 hours in the gym everyday.

not an "expert" but after 1.5 hours you will lose a huge amount of productivity (you can lift as much and as hard but the results would be down x percentage amount)

try breaking up the workout through the day - having one 2 hour session at the gym IMO is not as productive as 2 one hour sessions

not based on science just my own personal experience
