    Hey guys. Im new to this forum and excited.

    I've been training for 7 years seriously. Been very dedicated to nutrition, training and everything involved. I started training back in 2011 and the for the first 3 years i had very good results. I was growing like a weed. I hit 450 pounds benchpress, 500 squat and 600 deadlift all natural. My arms were up to 19 inches even though my shape wasnt at my best. I started juicing 1 1/2 year ago and I am not satisfied at all. Ive grown but not as much as I expected. My arms are still the same size as they were 3 years ago. Ive tried everything. EVERYTHING. High volume, low volume, High intensity, low reps, high reps. Different splits- 5 times a week, 6 times a week, 3 times a week. Upper/lower body splits. EVERYTHING.

    I have competed as well and in contest shape my arms were 18 inches. BUT they cannot grow. Nothing, nada. Sick of this 3 year plateau. Would appreciate if anyone can help me in regard to this.

    Diet/nutrition ? Maybe you’ve reached your generic potential. How old are you?

    Stats: 240 pounds at 10,5% bodyfat measured 2 days ago with a caliper (proffesionally done).
    Age: 25
    Arms: 18,5 inches
    Chest: 49
    Legs: 28,5
    Waist: 35

    I am cutting right now for a contest in October.
    Calorie intake is 3200 kcal - 330 g protein, 250 g carbs and 100 g fat.
    When im bulking its around 4500. And im actually eating more than i should beacuse of the fat i put on when bulking. So its 100% caloric surplus when bulking.

    Eating 6-7 meals day. Sleeping a minimum of 6-7 hours.

    And even though I may have reached my genetic potential shouldnt AAS help med surpass that? :)

    THanks for your replies!!

    It was a general question. I havent grown in 3 years. Even though I've had 4 bulking seasons. At the moment im cutting. And even though im cutting right now it shouldn't be impossible to add a little size now

    My advice would be don’t spend the extra money on gear to try and make up for somthing ur lacking and spend the money on a coach ...

    Explain me why. IM not suggesting for bulking or cutting its a proven way in competetive community to go through and arm plateu. That's my advice take it or leave it

    Eat more. Trying to grow during a cut.... no bueno. 10% bf means you aren't bulking properly. Some bb pros get close to 20% off season... eat eat eat. How sure are you the gear is real? Bloods before and after? What is tt? What is e2?

    Im cutting right now for a contest. I started to cut when i was 16% bodyfat right after a bulk. Before cycle I had mid range of testosteron production. IN the middle of the cycle i had 5x the normal and after pct I had almost the same as before.

    Yeah its 100% not the drugs. I've always been a believer in less is more when it comes to drugs.

    My guess is nutrition. When asked to post your diet, you went straight to macros. Not a single meal listed, no specific foods, no measurements, no timing, no peri workout protocol.....just macros.

    Try finding a good coach .... a lot of guys are willing to spend all kinds of money on gear and gh and not 200 on a coach ... its nice to take all the thinking out of it sometimes and just follow what ur told ... it also switches up evrthing for u ...

    So it's either training or diet. With you switching so many different styles of training, what's the longest you ran a program? I have best results when I work the same program religiously on paper for 12+ months. Muscle confusion is great, but dedication to follow a program through sometimes nets better results. And eat more.

    A typical day:

    Meal 1: 100 g of oats, 400 grams of egg whites and 2 dl of whole milk
    Meal 2: Non-fat cottage cheese 500 grams
    Meal 3: 300 g chicken with 300 grams of potatoes
    Meal 4: Pre workout (1 hour before) (Proteinshake and a banana depending how i feel)
    15 minutes prior to training 10 grams of EAA and sipping on EEAS during workout.
    Meal 5: Post workout meal: 100 grams of oats, 3 scoops of whey protein and 2 dl milk
    Meal 6: Non-fat cottage cheese 500 grams.

    And thats now when on a diet. When i bulk its more.
