Hey guys. I've been training for a couple of years now and I'd like to think I have a fair idea what I'm doing. I have good technique and I always try to ensure I'm getting a good pump out of whatever I'm doing.
Over two years I've tried a variety of training methods and the only thing they seem to have in common is that I never got sore from them. The only parts of my body that hurt the day(s) after are my lower back and my thighs. Aside from that, nothing.
Sure I get a big stiff or sore WHEN I'm training, but never in 'recovery time'. I take my protein, my BCAA's etc. and I still get the feeling that I've worked hard enough, and I DO work hard. I lift 5-6 days a week, have a great diet and push hard when I'm at the gym.
Basically, I want to know why I might not be growing? Could it be I train TOO much? Not enough sleep? I'm out of ideas.
