First, you need to know the initial data, what is the weight now, how much they gained in 7 years, what moment they stopped growing, what type of physique, and so on. In fact, everything is very simple. Weight is not gained for one simple reason - you get as many kcal per day as you spend per day. Therefore the weight is worth it. I would advise you to stretch the stomach a little (again, I could be wrong, you need the initial data), by increasing the serving size and reducing the number of meals, you can even up to 4 times a day. And, start counting calories (at least a little). When I wasn't gaining weight, I thought at one time that I had reached my maximum. But I decided to check and began to eat about 700 grams of carbohydrates from cereals and pasta a day (that is, more than a kilogram in dry form, and in boiled form it is a whole pan) and besides that, milk, cookies, waffles. As a result, weight from 95 reached 103 with my height 175. But I gained a lot of fat.

Do you need weight or muscle mass?

Gaining weight is very simple - eat more fats and fast carbohydrates, after a while insulin sensitivity will decrease, the prerequisites for type 2 diabetes will appear and the weight will be gained with a bang! But what the hell do you want?

Don't get hung up on the mass! Focus on the growth of strength indicators. If the strength grows, then the muscle mass also grows. And if at the same time the weight stands still, then you need to rejoice even more, since with the growth of muscle mass, fat leaves you (there is no 100% evidence that even for experienced athletes it is impossible).

Here are the approximate rates of progress in muscle growth for a "natural" athlete:

That is, if your training experience is about 7 years, then you can count on an increase of about 1 kg per year (and even less). So just keep exercising calmly and forget about the scales.

To get out of stagnation, I would recommend: take a week break from the gym (active and passive rest), then continue training with a much smaller volume (reduce the number of sets and exercise), rest between sets for about 5 minutes and at the same time the weights should be at least 80% of 1RM.

It would be nice if you wrote down your current data (anthropometry, strength,% fat) and what program do you train.
