yes you are correct on the massive calorie intake, as long as you are sure to burn those calories as well by staying active and lifting heavy. i take no weight gainer but for protein i take syntha-6 about 3 times a day. pre workout, post workout, and before bed. I work out almost everyday, just taking a day off for a day or two when i feel my body needs more time to recover.
i feel the diet is more important than weight gainers anyway. eat plenty of lean high protein food: turkey, chicken, tuna, eggs. and plenty of fruits and vegetables. dont worry so much about eating low fat food, because we need those calories.
as far as exercises, shit, i do damn near everything. make sure you focus on the big mass gainers: shoulder presses, squats, bench press, deadlifts. let me know if you have more questions.
this is all coming from a guy who has been working out for 3 years. i started at 135 lbs. no bullshit. just so you know my history
