You’re not changing your workout routine. For every 6-8 weeks, there should be changes in your workout routine. If you don’t then your muscles will adapt to your routine and stop growing.

You do not eat sufficient protein. This is important if you want to build bigger muscles. After all, protein is known is known to be the building block for muscles. One gram of protein per pound of your body weight equivalent is what you’re recommended to have. If you’re not getting enough protein with your normal diet, then try some protein shakes.
