Ive been doing a workout that consists of jumprope. Pushups and basic dumbells. 240 sit ups. Which I do everyday. I always,stretch. Ive been following this for 7 weeks now. Only physical change I notice is my four pack is coming in. everything is,getting easier BUT the pushups an dumbells I even cut one set out. I'm thinking do I need to workout harder or softer any tips? If it helps ive been eating WAY better ONLY water some coconut water in there. Lots of rice pasta meats I get proteins and carbs and drink and eat fruits and veggies whats happpening?

Eat more, lift heavier. You won't grow if you keep doing the same thing. You gotta change your actions to see physical change.

Hypertrophy is what its all about!

U need at least 3/4 gram up to 1 gram of protein r u will just burn muscle tissue up to burn for fuel

I eat 140 to 150 grams a day but most professionals said u should have a good amount of protein within 1 hour of finishing workout

Simple fact is sometimes we think we r getting enough and we simply arnt find out exactly how much protien u r consuming u need n order to build muscle at least 1gram per lb of body weight it takes calories to build muscle if ur burning thm up ur gonna create a caloric defict which will cause u to lose weight if ur abs r beginning to show ths tells me tht ur already at a point of a very low body fat percentage so ur body can't get wat it needs their it has to take it frm somewhere else ths will put ur body in wat is called a catabolic state ..to build muscle we want to b anabolic...anther thing tht cud b happening is ur not resting enough between workouts whn building muscle a lot is going on n ur body rebuilding and recovery frm ur workout is essential to building muscle without adequate rest u set urself up for overtraing and injury try body splits dnt work th same muscle group every single day if u work biceps and back on say monday thn work legs and core Tuesday thn cardio and focus on nutrition wed thn shoulders and tris thusday thn cardio and nutrition focus on Friday and thn chest and abs on saterday and repeat ths jus an example

You are getting weaker, because your muscles are going into fatigue. A muscle grows while you rest, not while u pump. It takes time. It doesn't just happen. Have rest days. That should do it.
