I will add this...if you are a beginner and want to add size and strength, and you ask me to train you:

A) You may be disappointed that you are only training 2-3 days per week.

B) You will eat like a behemoth, and will gain weight rapidly.

C) You will be busting nuts on basic exercises, and will gain strength rapidly.

You might not like the extra weight you add, but after 12 to 18 months you will be a beast and well on your way to whatever goals you wish to achieve. And this idea you are a hardgainer will become a distant memory.

Quite frankly, and no disrespect meant...in my world, in you have been training 2-5 years and haven't gained a lot of mass and strength, you are unwilling to eat enough and focus on progression on every set. The eating is probably the biggest issue, and the person most likely is eating too clean, or about 1000 calories lower than what I would ask them to eat.
