How Do I Gain More Muscle Mass?

If you want to add more size and muscle to your frame, to start with you need to consume more calories than you’re burning each day. You also need to increase your protein intake.

This is easier said than done when you’re having to eat abnormally large amounts of calories each day. Not to mention the labour of preparing the high calorie meals needed to pack on size.

Also, if you often find you have problems gaining muscle, it’s likely that valuable protein is unknowingly being used for energy before it reaches your muscles.

You see, to experience muscle growth, you need to break down the muscle first (through heavy training in the gym) and then feed your exhausted muscles protein afterwards.

This is where mass gainers can be extremely beneficial.

What Are Mass Gainer Supplements For?

When it comes to bodybuilding and building muscle, there are two main stages athletes go through: bulking and cutting.

Bodybuilders will diet and cut down for shows or photo shoots, then during the off-season they’ll bulk up as much as they possibly can.

When used as part of a healthy diet, mass gainers can be used to help supplement the bulking stage. Assisting you with recovery, muscle building and weight gain during this time.

In general mass gainers contain more calories than whey protein. They also contain larger amounts of carbohydrates and fats to help boost your calorie intake.

Who Are Mass Gainers For?

Mass gaining products are perfect for bodybuilders, powerlifters, weightlifters and anyone else looking to pack on some serious size and strength.

Whether you’re stuck in a frustrating plateau or you just can’t seem to put on size, mass gainers can help you achieve your bodybuilding goals.

The Benefits Of Mass Gainers

There are many proven benefits that come with using mass gainer supplements.

For example, mass gainers been shown to increase sporting and gym performance, recovery from exercise, protein balance, and can lead to muscle hypertrophy (as long as you exercise).

They also:

  • Help build muscle faster - Supplying protein to your damaged muscles following an intense workout is key to faster muscle growth. The great thing about mass gainers is they make it easy to add the required calories and protein to your diet, without having to eat huge meals.
  • Improve your protein balance - To gain muscle it’s important to have a positive protein balance (absorbing more than you are using). However, exercise can create a negative protein balance, meaning you lose protein in the process. Supplementing with a mass gainer is an easy way to give your muscles the protein they lose during exercise.
  • Assist with recovery - Increasing the speed at which muscle glycogen is recovered post exercise is crucial for gaining mass. Muscle glycogen is an essential fuel for intense exercise, whether it’s aerobic or anaerobic. Mass gainers can supply your muscles with the required nutrients, helping them to grow bigger and recover faster.
