So I've been working out pretty regularly now for something like 12 weeks. I'm a little guy at 5'7" and 125lbs. I've got a speedy 24 yo Filipino metabolism that burns up everything I eat. I started using weight gainer. I've already been through 3 tubs of the stuff and still.... nada, nothing, not a single pound gained. Part of the problem is that I'm a flight attendant, so I'm not always home and I don't have the luxury of being able to stick to a set workout plan or diet because the work out facilities at some of our layover hotels are minimal. Even with that I am able to maintain some level of consistency. There was a period where I was weighing in at 130lbs, but then work took me away for two weeks straight and I didn't touch the gym and I went right back to 125. It's frustrating. I'd get a personal trainer but I just can't afford it. If I have no alternative is doing push ups in my hotel room worth it? Should I be downing more weight gainer? I've been doing a full body workout every other day and that seems to be effective, but maybe I should go back to isolating groups of muscles instead? I dunno.... maybe I just have to wait till I'm 30 when my metabolism starts to slow down. If you have any insight or went through something similar, please let me know. I'm all ears!!
