Building Body Mass

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

So Im making this thread to help out my brother. Heres the deal:

Mike is 6'2" and 130 pounds. He's 18. He's healthy and all that but he just cant gain weight. Super fantastic metabolism... at least to fatties like me. To him its a curse. I can count his vertebrae through the skin on his back.

He wants to bulk up. Get some muscle; gain some weight. Basically, what should he do? What should he eat? Does anyone know any tasty recipes I can whip up for him? Protien, complex carbs and stuff is the way to go, right? How about excersises? What are some good ones, I guess, that he can work on?

Thanks for your help.
