New Powerful Formula
  • 50g Protein
  • 4g Added L-Leucine
  • 250mg Aminogen®
Manufactured Free of Banned Substances in a NSF GMP for Sport-Registered Facility

MASS GAINING FORMULA WITH mTOR ACTIVATORS Science confirms what athletes have always known: high quality calories and protein intake is linked to muscle size and strength. MONSTER Mass ™ is a macronutrient dense gainer designed to maximize lean mass gains.50% More Leucine – MONSTER MASS is fortified with 4 grams of added L-Leucine to drive an industry leading 3:1:1 Ratio of BCAAs. Recent university research shows that Leucine enriched beverages consumed with exercise synergistically activates and prolongs activity of mTOR signaling pathway, which increases muscle anabolic potential (muscle growth).

Supplement Facts

Mix 4 Scoops (150g) into 18-20 fl-oz water. The optimal time for a serving of Monster Mass is 30-45 minutes immediately after your workout. This timing is critical because your muscles absorb approximately 80% of the aminos and carbs necessary to help them grow during the two hour period immediately following exercise. Depending on your weight gain and caloric needs take Monster Mass as a snack or as a meal addition.

CytoSport products complement a healthful eating and hydration plan that, when combined with a balanced exercise program may contribute to healthy weight management and recovery from exercise.

Use as part of a well-balanced diet that includes whole foods and other protein sources. Do not use this product as your sole source of nutrition.

Pumping Up? How to Pick Your Protein Supplement
Pumping Up? How to Pick Your Protein Supplement

Our protein supplement guide will help you excel on the court, in the gym, or on the road
If you take your workouts seriously, nutrition should be top of mind too. Protein is a great place to start, and focusing on getting the right types of protein, in the right amounts, and at the right times is key. Our protein supplement guide will help you meet your wellness goals, potentially improving your performance on the court, in the gym, or on the road.

What type?

Whey

Whey protein is quick to digest and provides all of the protein building blocks - the amino acids. Our bodies cannot make some amino acids, and whey is ideal for meeting essential amino acid needs. Whey also supplies branched-chain amino acids (BCAA), and some research supports that they aid muscle recovery after hard workouts.

Casein

Compared with whey, casein is slower to digest, and results in a lower, yet more prolonged rise in blood amino acid levels, which may provide a particular advantage for body builders. At least one study supports that casein outshines whey in terms of promoting strength and lean body mass gains in people following a structured weight-training plan.

Rice

Rice protein is less likely to create allergic reactions than other proteins, and it comes from a plant, making it appropriate for vegetarians. Another potential advantage is that rice protein contains a high proportion of arginine, an amino acid that can dilate blood vessels, possibly enhancing blood flow to muscles. Rice is not a "complete" protein however; it doesn't supply all of the essential amino acids. Some products combine rice protein with proteins from sources like soy or milk to make it complete.

Egg

Egg protein is ideal for people who are looking to build new muscle. It has a very high protein efficiency ratio (PER), which is one measure of how well our bodies can use any particular form of protein. The higher the PER, the more efficiently our bodies can use that protein when we eat it. Egg is off the charts in terms of PER. Egg protein also is a complete protein, and is a good source of essential and branched chain amino acids. Egg protein powder is made from egg whites, and comes in a convenient, pasteurized powder form.

Soy

Soy protein is a high-quality plant protein that provides all essential amino acids, making it a good option for vegetarians. For the body to best utilize soy protein, vegetarians should also eat grain or dairy within a few days. Soy protein comes in two basic forms: soy protein isolate and soy protein concentrate. Soy protein isolate is the most highly purified form, and has a minimum protein content of 90%. Soy protein concentrate contains more carbohydrates, and has a protein content of approximately 70%. Concentrates tend to cost a little less, but if you find soy protein concentrate doesn't agree with you, try isolate, which is easier for some people to digest.

How much?

With protein, as with many nutrients, more is not always better. According to Dr. Doug Paddon-Jones, Associate Professor at the University of Texas Medical Branch and Director of Exercise Studies, "30 grams of protein appears to stimulate maximum muscle synthesis. For athletes, each meal and snack is a chance to hit the 30 gram mark, giving your body several opportunities each day to maximize muscle growth and repair."

Another reason to spread protein evenly through the day is simple efficiency. "Given that your body won't use much beyond 30 grams of protein at a time, it doesn't make sense to load up with more than this," says Paddon-Jones.

When?

  • Breakfast-To support muscle building first thing in the morning, try trading traditional carb-heavy breakfast foods for more protein-rich options, such as a powder protein supplement mixed with milk and cereal.
  • If you're heading into a long strength-training session-Sipping a casein-based protein supplement prior to and during your workout will give muscles sustained access to amino acids. If taken in the evening, casein can provide a steady supply of amino acids while you're sleeping.
  • Immediately pre- or post-workout-Especially if your workout includes aerobic or circuit training, protein manufacturers recommend a whey protein-based liquid or powder supplement.

          I take one serving in the morning before work if I don't have enough time to cook breakfast. I have purchased 2 at one time because the total servings was 18 and I wanted 2 to last me at least one month. I also take one serving post workout and before bed. Tastes great, has fair amount of BCAAs, has both casein and whey protein.

              I have been using Monster Mass for almost a year. I have not gained the weight i was hoping for when i bought the product. However, I run about 10-20 miles per week so that's probably the reason why. Cytosport makes the best tasting shakes except for the Monster Milk (it's gross). I highly recommend Monster Mass as it speeds up the recovery time and im rarely sore after a long day in the gym.

                Gained 5 lbs in a month (164 to 169), after not being able to gain anything for half a year. I'd say it works great, and I was using half doses.

                I will say it's not all muscle I've gained. The six pack isnt as sharp anymore.

                This product really didn't do much for me. The only reason i bought it was because it was on sale and i figured i would give it a shot. It was a complete waste of my money. The calorie count is really and so is the protein and carbs. Also there must be a lot of minerals in it because it made me use the bathroom frequently so what little weight i did gain i lost. There are better mass gainers out there like up your mass and BSN TRUE MASS.
