Lift heavy (meaning the 4-6 repitition range to failure). Get enough protein to build those muscles. (I assume you want to add muscle not fat.) That means .75 to 1.0 grams of protein per pound of lean body weight. Indulge in foods that are relatively high in naturally occuring Saturated Fats. Red meat, whole milk or cottage cheese come to mind. Saturated fats have been shown to boost testosterone levels in men. This will help you build muscle. Check out Bodybuilding.com. They have lots of information and members with experience gaining weight and muscle.
