I eat more, usually lean foods like chicken or beans.

I eat? I dont know, I've always been able to gain, but if I don't go to the gym, its a bad gain. I have to really focus on what i eat to lose versus gain :(

Eat and lift heavy. Or eat and lift a lot. Or eat and train hard.

Usually all three, but not on the same day. I eat every day though. :D

I'm quite serious here, too. I don't have any special growth secrets, I wish I did. Ultimately it's not about forced reps or negatives so much as it is about eating correctly, eating sufficiently, working hard, and resting adequately. If you aren't doing those things it doesn't matter how many forced reps you get in.

There is no ultimate way to gain weight or get big. Different people use different training styles to reach their goals. What they share ARE goals, and the determination to reach them.

I lifted this quote from another thread, but it fits here:

"There is no royal road to success, and a very bad thing it would if there were. For your reward lies not so much in the accomplishment as in the effort and struggle, and all the good qualities which they bring out."
-Eugen Sandow

I think Stephen and Pete already said it well, but there are 3 things needed: Training, Nutrition, Recovery. If you don't pay attention to all 3, you will not grow. Like Pete alluded to, training needs to be managed by balancing intensity, volume and frequency. Drop sets, etc can help on the intensity side but can burn you out if not part of a balanced program.
