    It's normal. You're looking kinda buff. Try texas method with dips chins and rows. Keep one program and troobleshoot when stall i stead of hopping programs.

      a teamate of mine (basketball) often comes into the changing room like this: " uuuh man this fucking fat gay, i swear i'll punch him into his fat gay mouth." (Talking about the coach infront of whole rest of the team) his friends saying the: "yeah man, right?" sort of thing, all others, including me are silent..... your gayry remind me of him.
      All u germans can imagine him with halve turkish halve slav retard accent "uuu uuu uuu....."

      am not racist cause I am to a forth serb but my grand father never talked serbian to my father and us grandchildren, also never visited his family in serbia after moving to switzerland.

    You look fine.
    Lose some weight and change programs. Maybe find a personal trainer for a while.

      I think mainly appetite. The only time I made legit gains, enough to go from auschwitzmode 140 lbs to 180 lbs mid tier DYEL, is when I was 17 and forcefed myself 3000 calories a day. But stopped due to fucking leg injury. Since then I've been lifting on and off and literally never gotten any stronger because I rarely eat more than 2000 cals.

    Lol I look much worse than you and I just did 160lb for a 4x8
    Honestly if you cut like 10lb I think you will look really good. Then just do a small clean bulk

    For wide hip guys i'd advise weighted calisthenics
    Treat a weighted chin/pullup/dip like a serious lift
    Go heavy
    Weighted calisthenics guys usually have good bods

    Looks like average 2 year progress to me honestly. You have to realize that in the "normal" range of muscle building ability there is still a 200% difference in muscle built over time.

    This is what I bench and I started going to he gym 6 years ago. Granted I was dicking around in my first year (complete noob basically just did one or two sets of each machine in my gym didn't follow any routine didn't diet and wasn't consistent) didn't bother going to the gym in most of my second year, actually followed through in my third year made gainz but then I pulled a forearm tendon and had to stop going to the gym for a few months. When I came back to the gym shortly after covid hit and gyms closed and I was too lazy to exercise at home, then I came back when they opened a few months later but I wasn't super consistent and then just when I reached 160 lbs I pulled another fucking foream tendon (this time on my left arm kek) and had to stop again for a few months and started again around april this year. Just recently I got back my previous PRs and I'm making new ones so the lesson is don't be a gay and don't bitch just because you're still weak just keep moving forward and you GMI.

    You have natural mesomorphic body type. You have already muscles but they are hiding under your body fat. Try cutting for few months and you will see good definition. Don't worry if you fall on strength.

    Just keep at it but key in on your diet and sleep. Don’t cut any corners. Once your 100% sure your surplus diet and good sleep is in check then you can start experimenting with training to find out what works for you. Listen to your body

    Try 5x3 for bench squat and or deadlift then just minimize accessories. You dont look bad you just dont know how to break a plateua. These things take time. Fitness is a life long pursuit brother. Struggle is the only sword against death. Keep on struggling.
