English not your first language im confused on a lot of what you said. If you made no progress in a year that's really bad. So basically you have to change what your doing because clearly that didn't work.

What are your goal?

I too am confused. You're only vegan 3 days a week? You should be able to find a solid beginner lifting program and start making some sort of progress. More than 3 sets per muscle? Are you doing full body or a body part split? Are you saying it could be because your job in construction is physically demanding?

Give the vegan thing up, or your sidepiece that's causing that or whatever.

OCD from creatine? That's a new one for me.

Do Stronglifts 5x5 for a minimum 3 months and if you don't make some sort of progress find another hobby.

off topic but i've been seeing this plant based stuff showing up for awhile now... but thing thing that made me laugh was a package that said meatless meatballs--so i asked the meat manager at krogers-hey bill how can this be a meatball if it isn't meat-we both got a good laugh.

Not trying to get into a whole vegan argument. I eat meat. But you can make serious gains as a vegan. If you were open class bodybuilding biggest of the big boys, you need meat. But 99 percent of will never get there and we could eat entire plant based for our goals. Again I eat meat.

Sounds like you're trying to do too much in a single workout man. I'm a construction electrician, sometimes our days are ROUGH. But I still be makin' them gains, bruh. You just gotta focus each workout.

Seriously, give Stronglifts a try dude. Start slow and low and enjoy it.

Sometimes a guy helps me out at work, who does not eat any meat.
He looks thin, but he's ripped and vascular.
Dude's strong as an ox, though.

Like was already said, it's quite possible that your amount of physical output at work just isn't leaving you much room for muscle or strength gain.

I'd say drop the no meat days if you can.
If Not, add in as much plant protein powder as you can. EVERY DAY.

And short-term, keep the gym work pretty heavy, but limit your time there (temporarily).

See if that changes anything.

thank you four your answer , that you told me that much in this reply . i have a mix from hemp, rice, and pea and i will use more
and i will mix with peanut butter powder with low fat , i just ordered natural sterol complex and maybe it will help me a little , like creatine ( creatine is helping me to put size and strenght , but is making my ocd worse ) and in may i will try s4 andarine

Yeah as above. I’m not anti vegan at all but you need to consider that studies have consistently shown that plant based protein sources have lower bioavailability than animal based.

that doesn’t mean you can’t get bigger/stronger eating vegan 3’days a week or whatever, just that you need more of it to have the same beneficial effects as a whey protein for example (and studies also show that as long as the protein requirements are met then the actual source doesn’t make a lot of difference).

so my guess would be a combination of your work plus diet is hindering your progress,

would need more detail to comment properly on the training to be honest
