Need some advice or input
Hey everyone, I am new to bodybuilding.net and just wanted to get some input. I'm 21 years old and have been weight lifting for about a year. About the last 3 months I have gotten very serious with it. I currently stand at 6'1 and a tiny 153 pounds with about a 11% body fat. the past few months I go to the gym twice a day and lift very heavy. I eat about 2500 to 3500 calories a day and on a VERY clean diet. Chicken, Fish, Veggies, Potatoes etc and also drinking over a gallon of water daily. I'm currently talking in about 100g of protein powder a day as well as BCAA's right after my workout. I recently started a cycle of Sustanon 250 and Decca 250. Every 6 days I pin 500mg of Sust and 250 of Decca. I'm about three weeks into my cycle and I have seen zero weight gain and actually lost two pounds. My strength has GREATLY increased and I am getting more cut and building some what noticeable muscle but its minor. Im trying to get my weight up to 170 maybe 180. Does anyone have any input as to why I am not seeing weight gain or why its so slow? I know the simple answer would be to eat more... But id appreciate something more detailed than that. Any input would be appreciated.

Well weight gain is all about taking in more calories than you burn. I believe I read that you are going to the gym twice a DAY? I think that's too much. Go to the gym once a day and take one day a week off - you need to give your body time to rest and you need to give your muscles time to grow.
When you lift you are breaking down your muscles, and when you are "resting" your broken down muscles are re-growing. You are giving your muscles little to no time to grow! More isn't always necessarily better. Get in once a day and go hard!

Twice a day is possible if your routine allows for it.
However I'm going to tell you exactly what you don't want to hear: EAT MORE! With those "supps" that you are taking you need to pack to as many calories as you possibly can. Probably close to twice as much as you are believe it or not.
Also I would suggest taking your BCAA during your workout.
I don't understand why a guy who is 150lb thinks he needs to use gear to get bigger... 180lb is not a lofty goal. Eitherway, that is neither here nor there.
Get the fork to your face... and when you feel full, keep going.
