    What helps people gain mass? I'm about 5'10"/175 and don't really have much size on me. I've noticed some muscle gains over the past few months but I think if I had more size I'd see bigger gains. At the moment I'd like to work on just getting bigger and maybe cutting in a few months. Does it have to do with protein intake, etc? I've been wondering if I should start having those protein drinks or taking something.

    make sure you get enough protein and just eat more in general.

    eat until you can't eat anymore. wait 30 minutes. then eat some more.

    It always seems like I get big in the stomach instead of anywhere else. I'm guessing that's normal?

    Oh and any recommendations on things to take?

    if I was up your ass you'd know where I was
    Yeah me too, its called being a man. You can try to minimize the fat gain but for the most part, if you're not willing to take on some fat its really hard to gain muscle at a reasonable rate.
