Question: What Is The Easiest Way To Gain Mass?

I was wondering if anyone knew which will help you gain mass the easiest: taking a weight gain powder, protein powder, or both of them? What is the major difference between the two and would taking both of them at the same time be going overboard? Would it just be wasteful to take both?

Answer #1

Eat everything you can, but small portions 6 to 8 times a day. Take a Creatine supplement (I recommend Cell Tech, Bio Cell, or Phosphagen HP). Take a whey protein supplement (I recommend Prolab or Designer Protein Products). The difference between weight gainers and protein powders: 1.Weight Gainers are generally high in carbs and calories 2. Protein powders are simply protein with little carbs, calories and fat.

The best weight gainer right now is probably Pro Labs N-Large. Ask any body builder. Eat 50-30-20 ratio (protein-carbos-fat). Take a tablespoon of cottage cheese before bed. Let me know how it's going for you.

Answer #2

You must remember that weight gain powders are just really liquid food. The main reason for weight gain powders is it's easier to drink food then eat, and a lot less time consuming too. Let's say you weigh 150lbs. To gain weight, start off by consuming 3000 calories a day. A daily intake of food per day for 3000 calories would be:

Breakfast - 4 whole eggs, 3 strips of bacon, 1 cup of oatmeal, glass of OJ

Lunch - 6oz of chicken breast, 1 baked potato, small salad

Post workout - weight gain shake, 2 scoops of Champion Nutrition Heavyweight Gainer 900, 16oz of 1% milk

Dinner - 6oz of steak, 1 baked potato, vegetables

This all works out to around 3000 calories a day. Now you can see how weight gain shakes fit in. That weight gain shake with milk has about 1100 calories, it's easier to drink 1100 calories than eat it right! Try this diet for one week. If you don't see a 1 pound increase, up the calories by 300 to 500. For example, add an extra potato or chicken breast to one of these meals. If you don't gain one pound in a week, up it again until you keep gaining one pound a week. That's 4 pounds a month, 48 pounds a year. In one year, you could go from 150lbs to 198lbs. That's an awesome gain in weight. It just takes dedication and a commitment to eat all your food each day. I would also add in 1 multivitamin per day to cover any missed nutrients in your food.

Now for training, do it 3 days a week. For small body parts, do 4-6 sets max. For large body parts, 6-9 max. Do reps of 6-10. Keep your workout under 1 hour, rest 2 minutes between sets. Do cardio 2 days a week max. For me, I'm a martial artist and my classes are my cardio, that's it.
