If you really need calorie-dense supplement designed to add muscle size, Serious Mass by Optimum Nutrition is the choice for you. Serious Mass is one of the most calorie-intense shakes on the market, with 50 grams of a mass-building protein blend – more than 8 whole eggs – into each 1250 calorie shake. Besides protein, it also contains creatine, glutamine, glutamine peptides, vitamins and minerals, everything you need to build lean mass, if you’re training hard enough that is. Granted, not everyone needs that kind of nutritional density, so keep in mind that you can use smaller servings of Serious Mass, if that suits your needs better.
>50 Grams of Blended Protein.
>Over 250 Grams of Carbohydrates with No Added Sugar.
>Enhanced with Creatine, Glutamine, and Glutamic Acid.
>25 Vitamins and Essential Minerals.
The recommended dosage is to add two heaping scoops of Serious Mass to a blender filled with 24 oz (710 mL) of water. Blend for 45-60 seconds. Then add a few ice cubes and, if desired, other calorie-contributing ingredients and blend for an additional 30-45 seconds.
I got the chocolate flavor, its not the greatest tasting thing ever, but easy to chug and doesn’t have a bad after taste. You can definitely taste the artificial flavoring here, but I didn’t mind it much.
If you buy this product, make sure you have a blender, otherwise you will be drinking lumps and clumps. And if you do have a blender, make sure you mix it well, and maybe even use a little extra water then what the directions call for. I always blend a little longer to get the clumps out, it’s not terrible you will figure it out once you try it.
I was very happy with the gains I got from this weight gainer. Not the best tasting or easiest to mix, but it certainly did its job. I mean unless you are just unlucky this should put on about 10 pounds with is. I felt great recovery as well, I rarely felt hungry, even though sometimes I would miss a regular meal, this would hold me over. Not bad digestion wise but you do get gas so get ready for that. This isn’t your lean gainer so make sure you are busting that butt working out or you will notice the wrong kinda gains haha.
You can usually find this for around 45$ for a 12 pound bag on most online retailers. That will give you 16 two scoop servings, at about $2.50 a serving. There are cheaper alternatives per serving price, but you do get a lot of ingredients for your money with this product.
Serious Mass is a good product for those looking for pure calories and who want to pack on pounds. Nothing can replace eating real food, but this is a good supplement for when you don’t have a fork in your mouth. I would recommend this product.
