Hey, Adam. Nice to meet you. Putting on weight or building strength has to do with the kitchen more than the routine. You started at 118 and got to 129that's a good start. Do more of that. You say your gut got bigger as you got stronger, but I'd say more than that happened as your gut doesn't technically lift anything, so if you got stronger as your post suggests, your muscles did too.

That said, I would gain on that routine you posted. It's fine. Covers all the bases in general. If you are not gaining, you are not eating properly.

So, what is your diet? If routine and commitment are fine, then diet becomes king. Indeed if it is not king already.
