Track your macros

if your goal is to gain muscle you need to make sure you are eating enough calories and enough protein. Use an app like My Fitness Pal or Cronometer to ensure you are in a consistent caloric surplus of around 250 - 500 calories above maintenance.. You should also be aiming to consume a minimum of 1.6g of protein per kilogram of bodyweight. 

Lift 3 - 5x per week

To gain muscle you need the correct training stimulus. Hit the gym 3 - 5x per week and focus on big compound movements like squats, deadlifts, overhead press, bench press, pull ups and rows. Train progressively and try to add more reps or more weight each week. If you get stronger you will get bigger!

Take a B12 supplement

As a vegan it is essential that you are taking a high quality B12 supplement. I recommend taking 500mcg daily from in the form of MHA.
