Whats the best workout for gaining mass?

I am trying to put on some weight. I have gained a little, but I cannot get into a workout that I am pleased with. What workout is everybody doing. Type, reps, stacking, etc...

Proper nutrition and intensity are the keys to building solid mass. Give your body a reason to grow. Going heavy is a start, but pushing your limits is what stimulates growth. I personally like to use a tri-weekly plan to determine the weeks set/rep structure to keep my body "confused". Week one is for moderate lifts, 3 exercises per bodypart, 4 sets of 8-10 reps. Week two I go heavy with 3 exercises per bodypart, 4 sets of 5-8 reps, and week three is for a "light" program of 3 exercises per bodypart, 3 sets of 12-14 reps. Light is in quotes because that is in reference to the weights needed to perform proper form relative to the other two weeks weights. This isn't a week to slack off of your intensity. Actually, alot of people find that they grow better using the 12-14 rep range, it depends on your body type.
