What About Gaining Weight?

Hey guys!
I have a few questions for you guys. I'm currectly around 140 pounds, and I'm 5'8" in height. I lift alot, because I'm trying to build up alot more muscle. I've gotten a bit bigger since mid febuary, so it's working out alright. From what I know, muscle ways more then fat, correct? Well, I would really like to gain about another 20 pounds or so. I feel that I'm a bit to skinny then what I'd like to be. I was wondering how I can gain weight, but still stay in descent shape. I wanna still keep in 'tight' shape also, so I know I'll have to keep up with my weightlifting and running a bit.

Sorry if it sounds a bit complicating, but I don't know how else to put it at the moment.

not complicated at all,
all you need is a good diet
and the greater the portions/number of meals the more weight you gain (pretty much)

Just eat. A lot. More calories in than out, it's a very simple mathematical formula.

I'm 6'0, was only 137 pounds, gained about 22, so now I fluctuate around 159. I placed a heavy focus on cardio and ab workouts though in order to maintain a good level of fitness. I know large guys who are almost body builder types who can run /fast/.

Conversely, I also know guys who have me beat in terms of sheer mass and strength, but they can barely run to save their lives.

Don't have to make any drastic changes, as long as you aren't eating solidified grease, just keep eating whatever you already are, just go for additional helpings.
