thanks for the advice but i already do all of this. i forgot to mention that i add extra virgin olive oil to everything. tons of monounsaturated fat (helps with the inflammation) and adds calories. the other exercises i switch up a lot, and they aren't that important. also my pictures in my profile are old(about 15 lbs less than now). i do a lot of negative sets especially cause they initiate more muscle fibers than normal sets. my big three lifts (dead,squat,bench) i do 5 sets of 5 and increase the weight so that i can barely make the last set.
i have Pumping Iron so ive seen that. i know my shit, believe me. I probably know more than i should. i just am a young guy who is a hardgainer who is expecting more muscle than i should expect. thats about it.
thanks once again for the response though.
