What lifting routine do you follow and do you eat enough?
I would buy instead. Better reviews / results. You could add creatine and thats about it.
But make sure you eat about 4,000 clean calories. don't rely on weight gainers and supplements. It doesn't work that easy.

"Lift, Sleep, Eat, Repeat!" Is the type of philosophy you want to follow..
Lift Hard, Sleep Heavy, Eat Huge amounts of food, and do it everyday.

Lean Protein - Fish, Turkey, Chicken, 93/7 Beef, and good protein powders
Complex Carbs - Oats, Wheats, Natural Yogurt, and Wild Rice along with nutritous veggies and fruits.
Fats - Go for polyunsaturated, monounsaturated, and avoid saturated fats. Extra Virgin Olive Oil is great along with nuts, Flax seed oil, and coconut oil.
-Eat 5-8 Small Meals a day.
-Consume 20-30g Protein every 1 1/2 - 4 hours
-Limit carb intake after 5 PM unless you workout later in the day.
-Cut the Crap and stay on track. If you want a good body, eat good food. If you want to look like a summo wrestler, keep eating dem twinkies.
If you are looking to GAIN MASS, slowy increase your calorie intake. Try 200-300 OVER your maintence amount of calories every 2 weeks and see what is working. You may need to add more if nothing is happening. If you are trying to burn some fat, decrease your food consumption, and do intense Cardio such as HITT.
You can choose/rotate/cycle diets such as these:
-33/33/33 -split - Carbs/Protein/Fat
-40/40/20 split - Carbs/Protein/Fat
-Anabolic Diet (lots of fat, low carbs)
-CKD, TKD (Low Carbs, Carb Cycling
-50/40/10 split - Protein, Carbs, Fat
-Aim for an intesne workout that lasts about 45-60 minutes.
-Do COMPOUND Exericses that unleash test - Squat, Deadlift, and Bench
I personally love doing a few warm up set, acclimation set, and then do 2-3 HEAVY sets of 4-6 reps with good form. But there are so many variations to choose from. However, try to avoid bodybuilding magizines.
There are many different training philosphy's to try. Do some research and see what you like.
You may come accross:
-3x3 Strength Routine
-Common 10-12 reps, 4 sets, Bodybuilder routine
-4-6 Strength/Mass Building
-German Volume Training (GVT)
You need sleep to grow. You stimulate in the gym, and grow in the kitchen and when you rest. Aim for 8-10 hours of non-broken up SLEEP!
-Protein Shakes (1-3/day)
-Micronized Creatine Monohydrate (Search for different dosages. There are many to choose from)
-Maybe a pre-workout stimulant. But ask yourself, Do I feel TOO tired to lift, or can I do this on my own?
We really don't need anything more. I however, still stray away from the basics becuase I love trying new supplements. Its a hobby, to be quite honest (somewhat expensive too).
Now, I am NOT saying supplements don't work, but I AM saying that some people depend on them WAY TOO MUCH. If you hit a roadbloack, gains are slow to none, and you need a slight "boost", you may want to consider some new supplements...
There are many companies that I personally feel are top notch, to name a few:
-Applied Nut. - RPM and NeoVar
-Palo Alto Labs - Leviathan: Reloaded
-Controlled Labs -Green Bulge, White Blood, Golden Finish and Purple Wraath
-Ultimate Nutrition - Kre-Alkalyn
-Cytosport - EvoPro, Fast Twtich, Complete Whey Protein
-MST - Shred-XS
-Nutraplanet's bulk supplies - creatine
-USP - Anabolic Pump
-RPN - (Soap for Skin)
-Sciviation - Xtend
Those are just a few, but there are so many. I am no rep for any of them, but I have tried some of their products and they back what they say up. But many people have tried these companies products as well and they have seen results. Now, if you plan on "stacking" any of these supplements, don't take 8 of them. Take 1 or 2 to see what works.
-Take supplements ONLY as needed!

Well, you better buy both Truemass and cytogainer and eat 6 times a day.... 2-3 shakes too.
Are you lifting for baseball or mass?
