    Lift weights, eat steaks
    There's no "secret" to putting on muscle mass.

    1) Train hard and heavy. Stick to the basic compound movements (squats, bench, deadlift, dips, shoulder presses, etc), and 95% of your workouts should be free-weights.

    2) Eat big. Take in 1-2g protein per lb of bodyweight. You don't look carb sensitive, so really pound down the carbs and keep fats moderate. Also, drink at least 1 gallon of water a day.

    3) Rest. There is a saying, "you get strong in the gym, but you get big outside the gym". Your body needs adequate rest to recover and grow, so make sure you sleep 8 hours at least every night.

    4) Repeat. Keep these 3 factors consistent, and the gains you are looking for WILL come in time. "Rome wasn't built in a day, and neither was a championship physique" - Arnold.

    Yeah thats about it...

    As for OP, Hamish is correct, there is no secret. Just lift hard, eat big, and be consistent.

    Thats basically it.
