There are 4 Key Components in gaining lean body mass:
They are:
1.Eat Lots of Good, Clean Food.
2. Work-Out Hard.
3. Supplement Properly.
4. Sleep Long.
Notice that I put "eating lots of good, clean food" at the top of the list. Let's face it, more Calories = more mass, period. To build muscle, it is imperative to have adequate calories to build with. This doesn't mean to rush to Burger King and order 10 Whoppers. LOL, you want good, clean calories, like those found in your basic, down-to-the-earth-type foods such as: Potatoes, Rice, Oatmeal, Beans, and Yams. Meals should not include much the following: dairy products, sugars, or fats. You need to try to break your daily caloric, protein, carbohydrate, and fat intake

Like I said earlier, you should be able to gain approximately 1-2 lbs. of muscle per 100 lbs. of bodyweight each week.
If you are not gaining this much, you should check to make sure that you are following all of these guidelines. There are many products out there. Some supplements are good and some just steal your money. Supplements that add Protein to your diet are very beneficial. I will leave it to you whether you want to use supplements or not, just try and pick ones that do not have much sugar in them.
Sleep Long
Many times, you are too caught up in the "joys" of life and don't find much time to sleep. Sleeping is essential because it is a time your body gets a break from the daily activities and is able to repair the muscle fibers that you tore during your workout. You have all heard the normal amount to get is 8 hours of sleep each night. The average teen needs more than 8 hours and this average teen is not a bodybuider. I say get as much as possible. I do good to get 7-9 hours of sleep each night. In conclusion, I have summed up all you need to know about building muscle besides exercises and reps (This will be in another publishing) in one article. If you diligently follow these guidelines, you will build lean, sexy muscle that girls will go crazy over and can consider yourself a bodybuilder! Good Luck.
