What am I doing wrong?

I’ve been working out since this summer minus like a month or 2 in the fall. Am I just not patient enough, is it because I get at most 6 hours of sleep?

    Lack of consistency. In the last 6 months you worked out for 2, took 2 off, then worked out for two. 2-4 months of training hardly enough to see any real progress. Did you track anything? How many times a week did you work out?Plus your sleep sucks. I would bet your diet sucks too.

      I workout 6 days a week for about 20 minutes.

      My diet isn’t that bad, I try to eat a lot of protein, dairy, greens, I could eat less carbs.

        Well there's your problem. Do 3 sets of each excercise with adequate rest in between (~3min)
        Hit each muscle twice a week

        lmao my warmup is longer than your entire workout

        do 5x5 bench press, pull-ups, overhead (strict) press, and squats. all barbell exercises, i swear to god do not touch a single fricking dumbbell for at least 6 months. if you can do 5 sets of 5 reps at whatever weight you picked, add 5-10 lbs to the bar next session. go to the gym 3 times a week. if you can’t do the last few sets of 5 reps, still make sure you do 25 reps in however many sets it takes.

        i did this my first year lifting and put on 25lbs of muscle that year (140 to 165)

        you’re going to make it, you just have to train with intensity and purpose.

          same guy here, split it into 2 workouts

          workout 1:
          bench press
          squat

          workout 2:
          overhead press
          pull-ups

          if you think your arms are lacking, you can add in curls and skullcrushers 3x8-12 but don’t let it detract from your main movements. you’re skinnyfat but the problem isn’t that you’re fat, because you aren’t. you don’t have any significant muscle mass to give you any kind of shape. eat at a slight caloric surplus and get enough sleep but you’re pretty untrained, the noob gains can overcome a subpar diet and sleep routine. lift substantial weight, start putting up some decent numbers and the size and aesthetics will follow

            >Push and Pull in one day

            Dont do this shit anon, do the classic Push, Pull, Legs for proper progression.
            Workout 1: Bench and Tricep work
            Workout 2: Back and Bicep work
            Workout 3: Legs and Ab work

            Super easy, do it once or twice a week depending on how you feel.

      I do that

      >am i just not patient enough
      yes.
      >What am I doing wrong?
      you arent trusting the process, probably arent lifting with enough intensity and eating enough protein. it takes years to grow muscle naturally unless you are gifted in that regard. so suck it up, keep lifting and eating, focus on shit outside of the gym as well because youre just tormenting yourself if you fixate on your body and progress

      I definitely need to lift more intensely. How long did it take you to notice gains? When did others notice?

        i noticed actual physiological changes after about 6 months but i was insanely DYEL, literal skeleton. so i responded really well at first. after a year i could tell i had actually grown and had put on a decent amount of weight.

        for reference i started lifting at 5'10 100lbs in 2018, im 140lbs now and still have a twink belly. but thats just because i dont work abs like i used to and put on a little bit of fat

    2 months out of 6 is kinda big thing.

    You need weekdays of consistency. 8-9 hours sleep. 100 grams or more of protein. Lift hard, live heavy, 3-4 sessions of 45 minutes to an hour sessions a week.

    You're the classic "Hurr i work out but see no results" for 20 years who is half assed. Meanwhile you input 3 months of dedication, and it radically changes.

    Yes, celebs roid often for movies, but some of them do dedication for 3 months hence the transformation.

    There is a guy in the gym just like you.
    While others "fight" the last rep, you see the slow down in the rep, the weird faces... this dude approach the first set with a dread in the face, like he don't want to be there.
    He is like 180 cm, 80 kg I see him grab some pussy ass weight (5kg?) to do pullovers, and "struggle" with that shit. I don't care about the weight, its the face, the lack of commitment.

    How many times your workout a week. Why don't you use dumbbells, barbells, dips and pull ups for a progressive overload?

    just keep at it, make sure you are lifting and eating. Focus on metabolic health, limiting stress, meditation as well as sleep. Your body looks good when you treat it good.

      I can’t sleep until like 3 am, which sucks because I wake up at 9 for work.

      I think it’s withdrawals from edibles because whenever I don’t take them, I can sleep a lot better.

      Any sleep advice?

        take 3-5mg melatonin at the same time every evening for about 2 weeks. Don’t take naps during the day.

        also work out with some degree of difficulty and physical exertion to make yourself tired maybe?

        Anon I used to be like that, I know its counter intuitive but all you really need to do is just close your eyes and start counting.
        I know you wont believe it, but thats really all it takes and your body naturally gives up.
        Though I usually just watch a youtube video at 10pm with the lights off and then just close my eyes and listen then I open them and its morning

    Why aren't you flexing your arm? Is that supposed to make the photo more humorous?
