also, welcome to AM!
sometimes it's easier to get help when you post specifics...ie: supps your taking, how long you've been training, weight, height, bf%, goals, etc.
this helps us get an idea of where you're at and what you're trying to achieve.

Creatine, food, hard work, determination, sleep, water
...that about sums it up.
What are your stats?

You gotta get the staple supplements first along with a good diet:
Casein Protein or Cottage Cheese
If you want something extra that is specific for your goals:
Mass = . This will help you gain a lot of mass because it is a potent cell volumizer which shoves carbohydrates into your muscles and this increases protein synthesis. Also is great for pumps and energy.
Strength = MAN . Awesome creatine formula that will give you energy and help you push out more reps.

Well basically im 5'8'' 160 pounds... When i wake up, i have a protein shake, bowl of cereal, and a tuna sanwhich.. Then for lunch i have chicken with veggies.. Then a bit later i eat a chicken salad , then when i get home i eat some fruits, take a protein shake again and head to the gym.. I work out 4 days a week.. I do 5 sets of ten alternating diff areas each day.. Basically my goal is to get up to 180 or 185 but muscle gained

Read some of the logs people got going on and you can kinda get a preview of some of the supps. If you want mass and strength you are basically looking towards a bulking phase. Higher food intake and pushing harder at the gym as well as at least 8 hours of sleep a night and you will shine. How many calories/protien/carb/fat do you take in a day? Do you have a multi and fishoil?

welcome to AM bro! you should take a look at my logs. we almost have identical stats. What i have found works the best for me is very high carb intake, calories, and protein, along with some fats. as usual what everyone would say. I also used neovar and i think that did a great deal for me. I can send you the link to that log to look through if you would lke. I currently am using Green mag and glycergrow and really have enjoyed them thus far. For a beginner on bulk i think all you need though is a solid creatine products, vitamin, cottage cheese before dinner. A solid diet and structured workout. PM me with more detail and i can hook you up

Add some carbs to your meals that are just like, chicken and veggies. Maybe some sweet potato, oats, whole wheat bread, whatever really. If you are still struggling take a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil with a couple of meals and fish oil at one or two others.
Creatine... meh, I don't use it, it might help you... it just makes me retain lots of water personally. Even if it does work for you and you are a "responder" though you will certainly not see lasting results unless you are eating enough!

eat more sleep more. if you are under 30, that should be all you really need till you get a lot further along
