This is a great gainer for those who are finding it difficult to gain mass. Of course it is best to always consume whole foods as opposed to powders, but if you are having trouble fitting in the calories then this can definitely help. When I first used it I gained about 15 lbs on a lean bulk. You must make sure your training and macros are in check, this is not a miracle product just a good tool to use occasionally. The mixability and taste is great for a gainer, and it is very easy to get down quickly.
This is some good stuff if you want to gain a lot of mass quickly. It won't really get you as much muscle mass as taking other supplements such as pro hormones, but it is still good stuff. For hard gainers, this is the stuff to take. I would really like to gain as much mass as possible, so this is the right stuff. The flavor is really good as well, and it mixes good in a shaker. I usually don't mix it for very long, and it does not clump up at all. This is good stuff.
This is a good gainer to take if you are a hardgainer. Really, this is good to take for anyone who is looking to pack on some solid mass. It has plenty of calories in it, and a good amount of protein. CytoSport is a really good company that puts of products made specifically for athletes, They are using their own products, and put good quality ingredients in them. The flavor of this gainer is amazing as well. All cystosport products have good flavor in my experiences.
This is definitely a good muscle building shake. Muscle milk usually does a good job creating muscle building products. It has a lot of protein and carbs and does a good job overall. I don't think mass gainers are absolutely essential, but if you are looking for one, this one will definitely get the job done for you.
