What's your workout like?
How many times a week do you work out?
What's your current weight?
What's your protein intake?
To build muscles you need to know two things, 1. A good diet with more proteins and 2. Increase the "level" of exercise (ask your trainer about it at your gym).
Mostly, your body has gotten used to your exercise schedule so you need some changes there.
Push your muscles, your last rep should be near impossible. Change up your routines. What I do is every 6 weeks I take a week break and start all new routines when I get back into the gym. You should work each muscle group. Chest, legs, back, shoulders, and tr’s and Bi’s. I do one group each day (tr's/Bi's one one day) one day i sprint up hills or jog (cardio/endurance) during the summer i do allot of swimming - swimming is great. Then I have a day of rest. It is very important to rest. Muscles need to heel, recover, and grow. They do this while you rest so a good night sleep is great. I drink protein shakes and take vitamins and a supplement. Supplements aren’t necessary but I started taking em' after I got some size. I'd defiantly take the vitamins and protein. Stay away from sodas, junk, and fast foods. Also drink allot of water. Like protein your muscles need allot of water.
For anyone trying to gain muscle, several things must be done. One is to train with heavy weights. Using an appropriate weight, you should only be able to do 4-8 reps. Using heavy weights and low reps puts your muscles and nervous system under much more stress, stimulating more muscle fibers, which will cause rapid muscle growth.For maximum muscle gain, the focus of your workouts should consist of free weight exercises. Not machines or bodyweight exercises. This is not to say that you should not use machines or bodyweight exercises, but they should not be the focus of your training.
