Something 5 days a week
Hey guys, I have been working out since January this year and I have gained about 15 pounds. I have been sitting at the same weight now for about two months so I think I am going to start focusing a little more on getting a little bit more food.
I am 5'7" and weigh 145lbs.
My 1RM are as follows
I have been doing a workout like....
I was wondering if anyone things I should switch it up? I don't have a set schedule with what I do when I go in the gym so its different each day. I havent been recording my progress but I am now going to start that, which is why I want to find a set schedule.
Should I keep this schedule? I enjoy coming 5 days a week to gym.
Thank you everyone for the help.

Flat BB Bench 4x6-8
DB Flat Bench 4x6-8
Incline OR Decline BB Bench 4x6x8
Seated Flyes 4x6-8
Cable Flyes 4x6-8
Tricep Pushdown 4x6-8
Single hand Tricept Pushdown 4x6-8
DB Kickback 4x6-8
Arnold DB Press 4x6-8
BB Shoulder Press 4x6-8
Delt Raise 4x6-8
That is what I usually do. Give or take a few exercises. Then I do this again on Thursday with 8-12 reps. Is this to much volume doing this 2x a week? I thought the gains I have received are great but like mentioned I think upping my calories will hopefully make me get bigger.
Thank you both for reading and replying.

This what I do
For upper I do
laying tbar rows
flat bench dumbell press
tricep press and sometimes military press
standing calf rizes
hamstring curl(not sure whats the name of that mashine)
lower back extensions
bunch of abs on one of those big balls
I do about 4 sets for all with various reps.
On upper days after back and check a lot of times I will skip arm work as they get worked hard during compound movements.
Weekends I keep off. You can do 5on 2 off or 2on one off
If your not recovering quickly enought eat more or instead of 4 sets per exercise do 2-3 dont be afraid of frequency add weight to each workout day
