comment Should I use any supplements to get quicker result?
This answer may help you generally. Narrowing down your question, or splitting it into separate questions, could help.

comment Is 5 to 6 times workout per Week too much for the muscles to recover?
@Aytac That sounds like a good plan for strength and kickboxing. (Also, your english is quite good.)

comment Bodyweight strength training
This answer has significant overlap to your question, particularly since "replicate 5x5 with bodyweight" is in my opinion impossible.

comment Bodyweight strength training
I'm trying to write an answer, but I keep tripping over the idea of "replacing" a 5x5 barbell program. Bodyweight strength training can be productive, but it can't replace barbells--they're fundamentally different tools.

comment Bodyweight strength training
Which question do you want to ask: "Is bodyweight training effective" or "Does BW training omit muscles" or "Provide me with a program"? This question needs to be one specific question, preferably with background about your goals if the question relates to programming.

comment Intermittent fasting
How would you know when your body digested the food? My understanding is that the fasting clock starts every time you stop putting food in your mouth.

comment Bulking up in a 2 month time span
Without very specific details on diet, exercise, sleep, and stress, I agree that this is a duplicate. "Eat more, squat and chin, sleep" is the general advice; for specific advice we need specific background.

Eat more (particularly protein), lift weights, and make sure you're getting enough sleep.

comment I am hitting walls with my lifts, how can I progress?
As far as I'm aware, muscles don't get confused. They respond to stimuli. Five pounds more than last workout is a hell of a stimulus, and certainly ain't homeostasis. Homeostasis would be the same weight on the bar. More weight on the bar = different (heavier, harder, more intense) stimulus. That doesn't mean switching to another rep scheme couldn't help, but muscle confusion or homeostasis wouldn't be the reason.

comment I am hitting walls with my lifts, how can I progress?
5x5 is the antithesis of homeostasis when the weights increase every workout, as they do in this program. Of course eventually this linear progression will fail, but that's not due to a lack of "muscle confusion".

comment Looking to gain weight by putting on muscle
Stop eating chocolate and crisps, start eating metric tons of real food, lift heavy, sleep like it's your job, and check out the link Kate posted. Should work.

@Trungmanator It's good that you're enthusiastic, but answers don't need to have scientific evidence. Leaving a comment on one or two answers about that is fine, but especially with new users, you're asking for way too much.

comment How can I increase the weight I take when weight training?
Informaficker is right; you need to describe your entire exercise program, diet, sleep and stress patterns in detail for us to have any chance of debugging what's the matter.

comment Can adding a weight vest improve fat loss?
I'll bet the trainer told her to stop wearing the vest while running in order to minimize joint damage. That's not necessarily a bad idea, but it doesn't have anything to do with effectiveness for fat loss.
