Muscle is put on during rest and from nutrition. To put on muscle you are going to have to sleep, sleep, sleep recovery is an important process in building muscle. Also to put on muscle you have to EAT! Up your daily calorie intake by 200 calories and see how your results are.

Eat nothing but natural foods, nothing processed or in a box. You will need protein! Eat lean meats and fruits and vegetables, Bread is ok for going bulk! But make sure it isnt ENRICHED!

Lean meats will be your key to success, Red is ok just make sure it is lean, Steaks over hamburgers though ;)

To put on bulk, Lift Heavy and Low Reps

a good rep range would be 10x6x4/10x8x6x4/12x8x6x4

LIFT HEAVY! But not to heavy, another key to building muscle and being successful is keeping your form. For example, Barbell curls dont swing your back and have to throw yourself to get it up, KEEP YOUR BACK STRAIGHT!

EAT
SLEEP
DRINK PLENTY OF WATER
PERFECT FORM

That is your key to success my friend your basic building blocks if you will.

I have a rigorous bulk routine, I used when I was into lifting weights and it made me go from 140 pounds to 165 in the matter of 4-6 months. I made incredible gains!

You will put fat on that is a given, You cant put on weight without adding a bit of fat so if you want give yourself 20 minutes of cardio twice a week.

Try the Hardgainer website. You have to register but it's free andd there's nothing they don't know about lifting iron and gaining weight.

Do heavy weight 4 sets of 6-8 reps. Don't do this for longer than 6-8 weeks though as it will plateau and you should go back to a normal training routine. Get plenty of rest and don't do cardio on the same day as you do weights.

1 more thing.
if u go up soft and slow with the weight youll form a soft muscle

if u go up explosive youll form explosive reflexive muscle
