For months it is was impossible for me to raise above 80-82 kg (180 lbs), until I decided to take nutrition as another training. I began to eat far beyond satiety, drink milk instead of water and go eat something every 2-3 hours. I soon broke the barrier and raised my weight.
Welcome to the forum.

Your post made me think about how many trainees there must be out there that make no gains at all. I'm sure there's a good share of them, and most of them could benefit from doing exactly what you did.

Was there something that triggered your switch to milk and eating more? ...like reading about the 20 rep squat and whole milk routine, or did you just get frustrated and give it a try?

Learning to out eat your metabolism can be a tough thing to do.
