Need a good Routine!!
Im tired of my current routine. I have gained ten pounds in the last 2 months with it and the supplements i take, but i want something much more intense. Im tired of being thin, and if there is anyone out there either experienced or actually educated on this matter it would be really helpful if you could provide me with a workout that is going to make me gain mass as fast as possible. Whatever it may be, throw it my way. A 3 or 4 or 5 day a week workout is preferred. I just want to get big FAST!
i already know how much i need to be eating obviously i have been gaining weight, i just want a higher intensity workout. One that will, when i leave the gym everyday, leave me exhausted!

Sounds like you're a novice. If that's the case, then Starting Strength is the best type of program you could do.

Power Clean, 5x3

I agree with Kong on this one. At your height and weight you should focus on putting on some mass and the fastest way to do that (training wise) is by using heavy compound lifts. Don't worry so much about fine tuning at this point. You don't necessarily have to use the exact routine he laid out, but I'd go for something that focuses on compound lifts. Also, the volume in Kong's routine is sufficient. When you're using that much muscle to perform a lift you don't want to be doing high volumes.
Hey Kong, you wanna write out the training frequency for that routine? I was thinking something like...
Day 1 - Workout A
Day 2 - Off
Day 3 - Workout B
Day 4 - Off
Day 5 - Workout A
Day 6 - Off
Day 7 - Workout A
ect.. (Add in two days off in a row when you feel like you need it).
A lot of people think they have to be in the gym 5-6 days per week to see progress. Not true. Often times less is more. Most people are actually better off working out 3 days per week versus 5.

Yeah, thats a good choice, and thats the regular routine. I personally prefer a slight change to the schedule as such because I prefer to focus on Bench and Rows. Also you can lift the same days each week.
A / Off / B / Off / A / Off / Off
Then repeat the next week starting with A again.
