"Best product I've had highly recommend if you want to gain some mass. And it taste great in water or milk. Milk is better for me .Also have Mutant Whey , Creakong and Mutant Rehab they are also good i will be buying again. Hope this helps. PS with Mutant Mass and good diet i went from 10.7 to 11 stone 4 pound in 1 month."
"Bought a bag, Love Mutant products, always buying from them, try rehab"
"Fantastic product. After having tried many other products from other brands, I was about to give up. This product tastes great and works almost instantly. It's great as a supplement to training alongside a healthy diet. If you are intolerant of Lactose, them this is not for you as it can give you excessive wind. Overall, I will stick to this product. Tastes great and no after taste, Does what it states."
"I've only tried the chocolate hazle nut, and still have 6kg to get through, the taste is really bad! Worst tasting shake I've had"
"Love Mutant Mass! Ordered it - great service! No probs with digestion, I take 1/2 a serving 1 hr before training and 1/2 a serving directly after. I also add 5g of creatine too. Chocolate and cookies and cream tastes great. Can't fault at all."
Yes, the new version of Mutant Mass contains MCT oil, which is technically a saturated fat. Although it is not metabolised by the body as a fat at all and more like a carbohydrate. This is the reason for the higher sat fat content. Thank you for pointing this out and we will change it on the website.
Gloopy? Mutant mass mixes up quite thin. Are you mixing 2 scoops in 500ml of water in a blender or blender bottle? Do not take the recommended 4 scoop serving as this is way to much for the body to digest and break down in one serving. Plus this will mix very thick and heavy and around 800ml of water will be needed to get a decent consistency. Take 2 scoops twice per day in 500ml of water.
Yes, see my previous answer...
You CAN but the flavour will be "interesting".
We will be having the new package design in stock soon though we are unsure of exactly when this will be, currently.
No this is a fine supplement to take and does not contain any bands substances.
You will always gain some fat when you are gaining unless you just started training or you have extremely fortunate genetics. To minimize fat gains, start with 2 scoops (1/2 serving) twice daily and then adjust that up or down depending upon whether you gain more or less than 1/2 kilo per week after the first two weeks. So aim for a gain of 1 kg and if you go over, cut back by 1 scoop or decrease food intake slightly. If you gain less than 1/2 kg then increase by 1 scoop per day. Also, add a teaspoon of creatine powder to each shake for faster gains in lean muscle and strength.
You have to decide whether you desire more muscle OR less body fat. To gain mass at the fastest rate, you have to eat lots of calories. Then, when you have gained the muscle, you can change your focus towards losing fat. If you try to gain muscle without putting on any fat, you are unlikely to be very successful. For the best advice on this, read the article - http://www.tropicanafitness.com/view/v/article/a/45 Mutant Mass is our best-selling gainer, when taken with creatine, it leads to very fast muscle and strength gains.
Yes, fine to take these together. Take a 1/2 serving (2 scoops) of Mutant followed immeiately by a serving of Cre-X 12
To produce muscle growth and weight gain you need to be over eating your daily intake of calories by around 500-1000 extra calories per day. If you find it very easy to gain weight then you may see “slight” gains off one scoop twice per day. We would recommend you take a 2 scoop serving twice per day as the gains would be much quicker on a high calorie based diet.
Mutant Mass doesn't list its lactose content, so impossible to say but it is probably less than 5 or 10 grams per full serving (although most people take a half serving twice daily). This is low considering the high protein and calorie content. As most gainers don't list their lactose content, you will have to find one that has a low sugar content (as lactose is a sugar and therefore it can't exceed the amount of sugar listed on the label). Generally, most people who are lactose intolerant can handle a gram or more of lactose without any ill effects but this depends upon the severity of your condition. There is no way of knowing if any product will affect your stomach as sensitivity to various products is unique to each individual.
You are probably better off taking a proper pre-workout product and/or eating a meal with some protein and low-GI carbs 1 to 3 hours before training. But you could use the Mutant as a meal but NOT a full serving. Try 2 scoops 1 to 2 hours pre-training to start and monitor whether it affects your energy levels...everyone is different and you may get on fine with this.
This comes down to your diet and your genetics (some people put on fat more easily). However, any "gaining" phase causes fat gain because calorie intake must be higher than calorie expenditure. Pro bodybuilders do the same and then after their gaining phase they shed the fat. You have gained a lot of weight quite quickly and this tends to cause more fat gain. You should adjust your Mutant Mass intake so that you gain about 1/2 to 1 kg per week, so less of the gains are as fat. The main thing is that you will have gained substantial muscle and at some point you will probably want to go into a cutting phase and lose the fat, at which point you'll be much more muscular than before.
To break through plateaus, sometimes the only way to start growing again is to jack up your calories and accept that the fastest way to gain muscle is extra calories and that means you will probably gain some fat. If you are not gaining any weight on a weekly basis, it is very doubtful that you are building any significant muscle. So split your training and diet into "gaining phases" and "cutting phases" just like the pros do. So, in short, Mutant Mass may be the best answer for you - it is certainly the most popular mass gainer in Britain and we get tons of satisfied customers who use it.
Yes, you can mix Cell Mass with Mutant Mass (not sure about the taste aspect though?). It sounds to me like you are not eating enough calories. Some guys need 4000-6000 calories per day to make good gains, so find the level of calories that results in a gain of 1 to 2 kilos per week. If you don't hit that target, increase your food and/or Mutant Mass serving size or frequency.
As I said before, unless you can get the same amount of quality calories and protein that you were getting from the Mutant from normal food (which could be quite difficult), then you won't make as good gains.
Tren Bomb is an illegal steroid supplement (it is illegal to sell it) with the same potential for side effects as real steroids - actually it has a greater potential for side effects because it hasn't been through proper testing like pharmaceutical steroids. It has also never been shown to increase muscle mass or strength. If that weren't enough, we get quite a few reports of bad acne, hair loss and oily skin from people who have used this product. You are much better off adding creatine. It has had over 3000 scientific studies and several expert safety reviews that have determined that it is both effective and safe (it has no side effect outside of gains in muscle and strength).
YEs, add it to shakes.
Yes, they both come with extra at the moment.
Take a half serving (2 scoops) twice per day to start, with one serving immediately after training. Take the other serving in the morning. On non-training days, have one in the morning and the other between meals - the earlier in the day, the better. The rest of your meals should be small and often and high in protein to stay lean.
It depends upon your definition of "big". Depending upon your bodytype, at 6'1", you could look quite muscular at 13 stone if you are very lean. By professional bodybuilding standards, at 6'1", you'd want to weigh 20 stone ripped. Realistically, if you were lean at 15 stone, you'd certainly be considered muscular but it totally depends how lean and muscular you are now. You'd probably want to bulk up to about 16 or more stone and then diet down. A good rule of thumb is that to gain and keep 1 stone of muscle, you'd have to gain "at least" 2 stone (but again this depends heavily on genetics and natural levels of muscle). Either way, you're looking at our best-selling weight gainer.

If you're looking to gain weight and recover best from exercise, you're on the right track - Mutant Mass is our best weight gainer and will help you recover from exercise and gain muscle. Take 2 scoops (1/2 serving) of Mutant Mass twice per day with a heaping teaspoon of creatine. On training days, take one of these servings right after training. If you're trying to gain weight, you can increase the dosage (to 3 scoops) or the number of servings until you are gaining 1 or 2 kilos per week. To get maximum results, read the articles below - http://www.tropicanafitness.com/view/v/article/a/45 for essential info on weight gainers See the article - http://www.tropicanafitness.com/view/v/article/a/171 - for the best advice on Post-Workout supplementation.
Hi, You might want to try Optimum Nutrition Natural Whey & Oats 1.3kg, £32.99, which contains slow-release carbohydrates, quality whey proteins and dietary fibre. I hope you find this suggestion useful.
Mutant mass can be taken any time of the day or night. Personally I add in a whey protein morning afternoon and night so i can add in some extra quality calories. Best time to use Mass Gainers and protein shakes is in between solid meals. there are many different products that can help gain weight and size. Creatine products, especially PVL Cre-X12 or Cell-Tech are fantastic products to stack with Mutant Mass if your looking for fast, solid muscle gains and strength gains.
Mutant Mass is our best-selling (and best-performing) weight gainer product. So definitly get some - take 2 to 3 scoops 2 to 3 times per day (start off with 2 scoops twice daily and increase until you are gaining at the desired rate). The next best weight gainer is creatine monohydrate. You can buy the Tropicana brand (which is high-quality and at a good price) and add a teaspoon to each serving of Mutant Mass - this should result in very good gains in size and strength. If you prefer tablets, we recommend Creakic or Creadex - take one serving with each serving of Mutant Mass. See the article - http://www.tropicanafitness.com/view/v/article/a/45 to most effectively use weight gainers.
This product is only 7% fat (recommendations are to eat about 30% fat - depending upon what kind of diet you are on). About 15% of the calories are from fat. Of those, just under half are from flax (a source of essential fatty acids) and MCTs - mostly good fats.
We recommend taking either one heaping teaspoon of powdered creatine monohydrate or Creadex or Creakic tablets) with your two servings of Mutant Mass per day (take one of the servings just after workouts on workout days unless you are already taking a post-workout product). After weight gainers & protein products, creatine is the most important supplement for mass and strength gains. See the article - http://www.tropicanafitness.com/view/v/article/a/45 to most effectively use weight gainers. see - http://www.tropicanafitness.com/view/v/article/a/176 for essential info to get the best results from creatine.
This product is good for adding more size however it is heavy on the calories so if you are consuming enough calories during the day then potentially look at using a half serving to one full serving daily to add between 500-1000 calories to your calorie intake for the day. After this you weigh assess your "weight gain" feeling softer then drop the calories a bit, maybe not much change then increase slightly.
To start, add a teaspoon to each shake and then you can take it down to 1 teaspoon in one shake on non-training days and 2 on training days.
Mutant Mass can be taken any time of the day or night to add extra calories to your diet. Take in between solid meals is best and can be used post workout also. Mutant Mass contains primarily whey as its protein source, so this would be more than enough "fast" protein for after training.
This all depends on what you are hoping to get from the product? As long as you are consuming more calories in a day than you are burning then you will increase lean muscle mass if weight training.
Hello, USN Muscle Fuel Anabolic is considered to be an 'all-in-one' type of product that can assist with muscular gains as well as recovery. It contains both a natural testosterone-enhancer (Avena Sativa), as well as creatine. You are likely to find this is an effective addition to the appropriate diet, coupled with your current training regime, without the necessary addition of separate test-boosters/creatine.
Most experts now agree that there is no need to cycle off creatine and that it can be taken on an ongoing basis. This is because there have been over 3000 scientific studies and several expert safety reviews and no adverse side effects have been apparent. So feel free to use these products for as long as you like. Having said that, if you are taking two servings (or even two half servings as we suggest you start out with) of Mass-Tech, then you won't benefit from too much extra creatine, as much of any added creatine will go to waste (harmlessly excreted in your urine).
Loosing your hair? There is nothing in Mutant mass that have any effect on hair loss. Testosterone products in very sensitive individuals or older males may have an effect on speeding up the process of hair loss but there is nothing to prove this.
Mutant Mass is our most populare weight gainer. If you start with 2 scoops twice per day and add a teaspoon of creatine to each shake, you should get excellent mass gains.
Mutant mass and cell-tech would be a fantastic stack as this will flood your body with the muscle building calories you need to increase your body –weight and muscle mass. An alternative to cell-tech would be PVL Mutant Cre-X12 which is a very similar formulation to cell-tech but a cheaper price.
You should see results within the first two weeks. Start by taking 2 scoops (a half serving) 2 or 3 times per day between meals - take one just after training. Then, if you aren't gaining 1 to 3 kilograms per week, increase to 3 scoops 3 times per day. In the unlikely case that you don't gain at least 1 kilogram doing this, go to a full serving size. See the excellent article - http://www.tropicanafitness.com/view/v/article/a/45 for essential info on weight gainers Also, see - http://www.tropicanafitness.com/view/v/article/a/54 for advice on heavy training for maximum gains.
Hi, Mutant Mass is not certified as Halal; it is not stated in the nutritional information as being suitable for vegetarians, either. You may wish to try Reflex Instant Mass 2.7kg £35.99 instead, as this is definitely suitable for vegetarians.
Muscle Fuel Anabolic should be taken at least once per day to get sufficient creatine. One serving should be taken after training. You will likely get even better results if you take 2 servings on training days. If you do this, then you can plug the gaps between meals (especially on non-trianing days) with the Mutant Mass and wouldn't require any other source of creatine.
To properly gain muscle mass, you always have to put on some fat (this is what all of the professional bodybuilders do). It isn't the fat in Mutant Mass, it's you serving size (the fat is from MCT and CLA, which help burn fat compared to normal fats). The best advice is to taper down the size and/or number of servings until you are gaining more slowly but this could slow your muscle gains. You really need to plan when you are going to "diet off" the fat. As long as you have a strategy and timelines for how much you want to gain and when you want to get lean, you can make appropriate changes.
Take the Mutant Mass (2 scoops - 1/2 serving) after training and between meals twice daily. Take the X12 in the morning right after breakfast (ensure you eat some protein for breakfast - eggs, protein shake, etc). After the first 5 days, you only have to take the X12 once per day. If you aren't gaining on that program, then you have to up your calories by either more food or a bigger serving or an extra serving of Mutant Mass.
Mutant Mass is designed to be taken with water but can also be taken with milk. Both will work well but the milk will add extra calories, protein, carbs and fat. See the article - http://www.tropicanafitness.com/view/v/article/a/45 for essential info on weight gainers and how to use them.
Both are excellent. Mutant Mass (if you add creatine to it) would probably be slightly better overall, as it has a more nutritious formula - healthier fats and fibres added. But both are excellent for quick gains in size and strength, so you can't go wrong with either.
Mutant Mass is by far our best-selling weight gainer specifically because of its excellent formulation and value for money. If you try to get this amount of calories from a balanced meal with essential fats and quality fibre and this level of high-quality protein (which is better than any protein source you'll find at a supermarket), it would be dramatically more expensive than Mutant Mass and certainly much less convenient to prepare. We usually suggest starting by taking 2 scoops (1/2 a serving) twice per day, so it will last 26 days.
It's 8 days if you take 2 scoops, twice daily.
Mutant Mass doesn't have any ingredients that would be harmful. It is designed to be the equivalent of a well-balanced meal that is high in quality protein and also contains important fibre and healthy fats. We recommend it as our best weight gainer product. Start by taking 2 scoops (a half serving), twice per day and slowly increase the amount if you are not gaining 1 to 2 kilos per week. For best muscle-building resluts, I would strongly suggest that your read the articles: http://www.tropicanafitness.com/view/v/article/a/45 for essential info on weight gainers AND http://www.tropicanafitness.com/view/v/article/a/54 for advice on heavy training for maximum gains. [free weights vs machines]
Mix your creatine (5 grams - a heaping teaspoon) into your Mutant Mass shakes. Take 4 servings of creatine per day for the first 5 days (with your shakes or just before meals) and then 2 servings per day thereafter (1 serving with your post-workout shake on training days). See the article - http://www.tropicanafitness.com/view/v/article/a/45 - for the best advice on using weight gainers.
Yes, we recommend taking 5 grams (one heaping teaspoon) of creatine with your two servings of Mutant Mass per day (take one of the servings just after workouts on workout days unless you are already taking a post-workout product). After weight gainers & protein products, creatine is the most important supplement for mass and strength gains. Mutant Mass is our best-selling and probably the best weight gainer we carry. See the article - http://www.tropicanafitness.com/view/v/article/a/45 to most effectively use weight gainers. see - http://www.tropicanafitness.com/view/v/article/a/176 for essential info to get the best results from creatine.
Besides milk and egg proteins, I can't see any ingredients that are derived from animal sources in this product.
You have to either get your calories from food or from supplements like Mutant Mass - both cost money and to purchase and prepare a meal with the same quality of proteins, fats, carbs and fibre as Mutant Mass, it would almost certainly cost you more and take a heck of a lot longer to prepare. Without adequate calories, you can do whatever you want but you won't grow. For best results, start with 2 scoops of Mutant Mass, twice daily and adjust according to your results. For faster and bigger gains in lean mass and strength, add a creatine product.
My first recommendation for hardgainers is to use 2 scoops twice daily of Mutant Mass with Creapure Creatine - so excellent choice! If you aren't gaining on this, then it's a simple numbers game - increase the number of servings, size of servings or increase your calories from other foods. That will cover all the bases!
Yes. There is nothing wrong with taking this product.
Raw egg is a bad idea as it can give you salmonella and biotin defficiency. No need to add anything to Mutant Mass anyhow except for a high-calorie diet.
The Mutant may be better because if you're a hard gainer, you can take it several times per day. Cell-Tech is designed to be taken once daily after the loading phase (although many people take it twice per day). Nitro doesn't have enough calories on its own for a hard gainer or someone trying to gain mass as quickly impossible.
You'd take them both post workout, straight after you've finished your last set.
You can buy tons of illegal stuff online but that doesn't make it legal.
Hello, Your maths is correct! Having said this, I have known of individuals who choose to halve their servings (taking two scoops daily), and therefore, a 6.8kg bag will last double the time. Though this is a more economical step, it will of course depend on the calorie intake necessary to meet specific fitness goals.
We recommend half servings (2 scoops - 500 + calories). So a large bag of Mutant Mass would last you almost 3 weeks. Mutant Mass is the by far the best combination of quality and price per calorie as far as weight gainers go - and also by far our best seller.
With any weight gainer, you can adjust the calories infinitely by using any number of full and half scoops. Mutant Mass is so good because it is one of the cheapest on a per-calorie basis and it has quality protein (10 types), carbs (with several sources of fibre for gut health and ease of digestion) and healthy fats (MCTs, CLA, Flax). So if you want more calories use 2 1/2 scoops or 3 scoops per serving. The key is, if your gains are coming too slowly, increase the dosage, if they are coming too quickly and resulting in too much fat accumulation, decrease it. The scoop size of a product is just an arbitrary decision because if you make it too big, people complain that the product doesn't last long enough and if you make it too small, they complain that it doesn't have as many calories as the competition.
You have to either eat more food, take more Mutant Mass and/or switch from Creakic to Cell-Tech (more calories and best for quick, big gains in mass)!
Yes, this is an effective way of taking Mutant Mass and can be easier on the stomach for some people who get a bit bloated with the full serving. The number of scoops per serving is just a suggestion and can be modified depending upon how fast you are gaining weight, how much you train and how big a serving you can toleratem, etc.
Absolutely, we actuall suggest this to many customers as not everyone can handle a full serving of a weight gainer. If this does not deliver the gains you are looking for, move up to 3 scoops and/or increase the size of your meals (especially the carbs as they stimulate appetite).
Boiling water could alter the shape and function of the proteins, which could affect some of the health and muscle-building benefits of the whey protein. It won't make it useless or anything but it would have some negative effect (although no one knows for sure how much as this has not been researched). You're better off using milk, or warm (not hot) water.
A mix of both.
Hi Scott, Gaspari Real Mass ProBiotic 5.4kg, £43.99, is gluten-free.
some tips to help avoid bloating would be to add more water, drink it slowly and also wait for the bubbles to calm once shaken. The fibre sources used in Mutant Mass may cause bloating in some individuals - different people react differently to different fibre sources.
The IGF-1 referred to on the label is from naturally-occuring colostrum milk proteins. Some of the protein fractions in milk contain it. It is present in human breast milk - especially the first milk produced after the child's birth, called colostrum. Since Mutant Mass is high in these proteins, it contains significant amounts. So no need to worry about safety or spots. My experience in bodybuilders who suddenly grow quickly and get spots is that it's usually not from supplements (if you know what I mean).
You could switch to a protein product but you would have to find a calorie intake level that kept you at that weight, so would probably have to eat more food to make up some of the calories from the Mutant Mass. To shed the fat, go with a high-protein diet and keep adjusting your carbs down until you are getting desired weight loss. Also, a fat burner like Hydroxycut, Xendrine, Grenade, Cuts, etc will further help by boosting your metabolism and decreasing hunger.
It is a mix and does not come in a standard strawberry flavour.
Cookies and Cream, followed closely by chocolate and strawbery/Banana. This is by far our best-selling weight gainer, so all flavours are popular.
Whey, boiled eggs, cheese, etc
Mutant Mass is for fast mass gains or for people with fast metabolisms or who burn a lot of calories. Mutant Pro is to meet protein needs (not high in calories carbs or fat).
You could have them at seperate times as it would help with the increase in calories however consuming a serving of each at the same time wouldn't be necessary because each of those mass gaining products Mutant mass and True mass contain a big calorie hit per serving. However, we would recommend taking a weight gainer with Cell-tech together as this would maximise gains. These can be taken seperately and do not have to be mixed in the same shake.
You can use all of these together. Obviously just use the Xplode before workouts as directed. Use the Nitro before or after workouts, use the Mutant Mass (2 or 3 scoops) after training followed by Cell-Tech. Take the Mutant twice daily whether training or not between meals (again start with 2 to 3 scoop servings and only increase if you aren't gaining). On non-trainng days, take Cell-Tech just after breakfast.
Exactly as you said. Fit this product in between meals.
It has whey protein in there to a value of 50g per serving so there is no need to have an additional product unless you aren't meeting your protein requirements in the day through food.
Unfortunately no it does not contain creatine. Try stacking PVL Cre-X12 with mutant mass for serious size and strength gains.
Apologies. We are distributors of a great number of brands and have nothing to do with the manufacturing process. If you have any concerns regarding a specific product in terms of culturally-related dietary queries, it is best to contact the company directly.
You should use about 200 to 500ml of water for a 2-scoop serving (your shaker bottle or blender should have units marked on the side). If you like it thick and creamy use closer to 200 if you like it less thick, use closer to 500ml.
Hello, Both are classed as mass gainers and have a similar nutritional composition to one and other - which you opt for will most likely depend upon flavour preference and value for money (in terms of the latter, Mutant works out as the better choice). All in all, both will be effective. I hope this addresses your query.
You should put some size on and then worry about getting lean (as if you try to do both at the same time, you are unlikely to succeed). So ya, go with the Mutant Mass (2 scoops twice daily) and stick with your other supplements. Increase your food or your gainer intake if you aren't gaining 1 to 3 pounds per week.
One full scoop.
This product is not Halal.
It would last 52 days. 480ml of Milk adds 12g protein, 24g carbs and fat depends upon what kind of milk you use per 480ml. It adds about 240 calories for semi skim variety
That depends on whether you are getting enough protein in during the day, ensure you are getting around 1g of protein per 1lb of bodyweight to ensure protein is being shuttled into the muscles for growth and recovery after sessions and during the day. If you feel you're stopping short of your protein intake then it can be beneficial to supplement with extra whey protein.
The gainers are caterered for people who struggle to put on weight and people who cannot get enough calories in during the day, so Monster Mass and BSN's true mass contain nearly half the amount of calories than mutant mass which packs over 1,000 calories per serving. All of the gainers stated will perform the desired effect which is an extra amount of calories to keep your body in an anabolic state. Whichever is best depends on personal preference.
You cant do both. You either want to get big or get ripped. If you train hard eat right and add in a weight gainer then there is no reason you will put on body fat as the extra calories will be used to build muscle.
Mutant Mass is suitable for vegetarians as long as you are ok to consume milk ingredients.
Hi, Yes, it is fine for you to halve servings; many find this is an effective and more economical way of taking Mutant Mass. With regards to how long it will be until you see results - this is a rather difficult question to answer, as it will depend upon a number of factors including the quality of your diet, and consistency of your exercise routine. I would advocate applying a trial and error process, and to assess your progress on a weekly basis. I hope this information has helped to address your queries.
Pvl Mutant Mass is a fantastic product for making sure you over eat your daily intake of calories in order to gain weight and increase muscle mass. Mutant Mass must be used in conjunction with a healthy high calorie based diet and solid weight training regime to get the best results. If you add a creatine product, results will be even more dramatic. Slight fat gains is nothing you should be worrying about when building muscle. Build to the size you want to be and then focus on dieting away the body fat after.
sorry, we don't ship there - it's like over 10,000 miles away!!
As far as I am aware, it does not carry Halal certification. The product may well be suitable for vegetarians (as ingredients seem to suggest), though there is nowhere within the nutritional information to indicate that this suitability is guaranteed. If you require further clarification, you may wish to contact Mutant directly, using the following link: http://www.iammutant.com/aboutus/contactus.php
Hi, This is according to individual preference - your budget, preferred flavour and so forth. All protein supplements and weight gainers will have an anabolic effect on muscle tissue if utilised correctly in conjunction with sensible eating habits and a tailored fitness regime. I hope this addresses your query.
Hi, Mutant Mass is a good quality, excellent value weight gainer that comes in a variety of flavours. Weight gainers contain a concentrated blend of good quality proteins, carbohydrates and some fats; they enable you to consume a significant number of calories in the form of a shake, and are therefore, useful supplements for individuals who struggle to eat regularly, or find it difficult to put on weight, even though they feel they eat adequately. As with any dietary supplement, they are intended to be used in conjunction with sensible eating habits and exercise. Please remember that for the time being, there are alternative methods of becoming more active than going to the gym. Begin moderately - start incorporating gentle but regular exercise into your life until it becomes habitual, and start making small, realistic changes to your eating habits (where applicable). I hope this information addresses your query.
Its our best selling weight gainer and one of the best formulated on the market so its up there as one of the best. Can be used as part of this stack.
Hello, yeah it has 10 servings more than Serious mass, however as serious mass has more calories, added Vits and mins I would say ON is the better weight gainer, but you will have to pay more.
Based on an intake of two scoops daily, a 2.2kg bag contains approximately seventeen servings.
Everything we know about the product nutrients per serving is listed on our website under "Nutrition" on the product page. Each serving is 4 scoops, so divide all nutrients from a full serving by 4.
The main theory behind weight gain is a surplus of calories, majority of your calories should be coming from meals, with a gainer like mutant mass backing it up for massive amounts of carbohydrates and protein. 20lbs in 2 months is very difficult, unless you are very genitically gifted. 20lbs of lean muscle mass will take a couple of years to accomplish, if its just 20lbs of mass (fat and muscle) then this could be obtained in a shorter term. Try eating 8 meals a day including 3 mutant mass' in to help your body recover and grow.
Mutant mass will defiantly help. Mutant mass is full of the muscle building calories you need to promote solid muscle gains. Highly recommended for anyone trying to pack on some size.
The Mutant Mass is more like a meal than the X12 because it has fibre for gut health, MCT oil (which is the source of the saturated fat but in fact MCTs aren't metabolised like normal fats so no need to worry about the saturated fat content) as an additional fast energy source. However if the X12 plus Mutant Pro has similar calories and also has creatine, then you'd probably get better gains (especially for the first few weeks) on that.. Best solution is to use Mutant Mass and add a bit of creatine powder (you can get 60 servings of Tropicana creatine, which is the best quality Creapure creatine for £10).
For best results, creatine should ideally be taken pre-workout; its function is to regenerate levels of ATP - the biological energy supply for every cell in the body. Physical activity depletes levels of ATP fairly quickly, which means that muscles become fatigued and contractions cease. Taking a creatine supplement will enable you to exercise for longer/complete more reps. It should preferably be taken with a carbohydrate source (such as fruit juice) to aid its absorption. Mutant Mass should be taken post-workout, to replenish levels of glycogen and amino acids (protein) in the muscles that become depleted during physical activity. You can also take it throughout the day (within reason) to bridge any nutritional gaps, e.g. mid-morning/afternoon, to maintain in an anabolic state. Please adhere to specific product guidelines for mixing instruction etc.
Not at all. If you want to increase your mass and strength then a mass gainer is exactly what you need. Take it for as long as you like until you reach your target weight.
We recommend starting with 2 scoops (1/2 serving) twice daily and then increase you serving size or number of servings if you aren't gaining 1-3 pounds per week. Often young, skinny guys have to eat huge amounts of calories to gain any muscle.
Mutant mass would be perfect if you are looking to put on more muscle mass as the calorie content is high. We would recommend having 2-3 servings a day in between your meals and after training, around 2-3 hours between each food source. Ensure you are taking on more calories than burn daily in the region of 500-1000 per day. This would equate to a 1-2lb gain per week, if done over a 7 day period.
Yes. We actually recommend taking 2 scoops twice per day to start as this allows you to digest the product more efficiently and reduce bloating. The bottom line is you have to take an amount that allows you to hit your weight-gain targets and so have to adjust based upon results. You have to do the same with your other food. It is best taken in between meals and after training. A single scoop will contain :- calories - 265 protein - 13g carbs - 44g fats - 4.5
Mutant Mass is by far our best-selling gainer as it is value-for-money, quality protein, carbs and fats and tastes great. Yes, go with the Mutant Mass. Start with 2 scoops twice daily and increase until you are gaining about 1 kilo per week. If you gain more than 1kg per week, that increases the odds that some of the gains will be fat (but some gains will always be fat unless you just incrased your training intensity or duration or if you have some kind of super-human genetics. Add a teaspoon of powdered creatine (Just Creatine by Sports Pharma is excellent quality and price) for faster gains in both muscle and strength.
Mutant mass doesn't contain anything that will cause harm to a 15 year old, therefore it's just a big hit of calories, if he/she is using it to encourage weight gain/recovery from training or sport etc then it should be fine that he/she uses this product.
Generally, it is advisable that you supplement your diet with a mass gainer in order to bridge nutritional gaps. You are correct in taking a serving post-workout, as this will serve to replenish amino acids and glucose that are depleted during exercise. Consuming with breakfast (or mid-morning if you'd rather) is recommended, with a third serving (if necessary) say, mid-afternoon. I hope you find the above information useful.
The product does not specify 'suitable for vegetarians' on its label, or state anywhere that ingredients are Halal; I would therefore, assume that neither is applicable. I suggest contacting Mutant directly for extra clarification. They can be contacted on: email@example.com
Mass-Tech is probably the lowest high-quality gainer in sugars and sat fats.
Mutant Mass has a massive following and huge amounts of feedback but with that said MassTech dose to. The question isn’t really which one is the best. It is which one is the best for you? Everyone is different and react differently to different products so try Mutant mass to start and see how you get on. If you feel the product has not worked for you try Masstech.
Use mutant mass as needed. One serving a day is fine if you are consuming the rest of your calories you need from food in order to grow. If you find you are gaining consistently with only one serving of mutant mass a day then stick to one serving. However, this is only about 265 calories and 13 grams of quality protein, so it is unlikely to have a major effect on your diet. If you have a fast metablism and have trouble gaining weight, you should be consuming quite a bit more than that. We recommend taking 2 scoops twice a day as a starting point and increase either the number of servings or the serving size if you are not gaining.
You can get 52 servings if you use 2 scoops instead of 4.
Hi, The purpose of a weight gainer is to provide supplementary calories/carbs. (as well as protein) between meals. They are designed for individuals who find it difficult to gain/retain weight through their eating plan alone (usually owing to their high metabolism); weight gainers are a convenient way of adding a concentrated source of calories which can be ustilied to fuel the muscles during training, and stimulate recovery, facilitating the process of muscle building. For best results, I would advocate consuming servings between main meals (segregate servings if wished), with one of these taken within thirty minutes post-exercise. So, for example, you could have one with breakfast (or mid-morning), and one after training. Add one mid-afternoon (if wished/required). Some people prefer to halve their servings, so if they are having two shakes a day and using the full four scoops, this would equate to two scoops at each sitting, four times daily.
It wouldn’t be necessary for you to mix protein with a mass gainer, as the latter already contains protein as part of its formula. Please bear in mind that your body can only utilise a specific quantity of protein in one sitting (this will vary according to your compostiion and activity levels, but as a guideline, 20g is considered average), and so supplementing a mass gainer with extra protein would not be necessary. Generally speaking, mass gainers are best suited to those individuals who have a fast metabolism, whereas whey protein is a great recovery product for those looking to lose/maintain body fat, and support muscle protein synthesis.
