Description
THE BIGGER PICTURE OF WEIGHT-GAIN
Serious weight gain requires serious calories. However, those who need the extracalories most often have the toughest time consuming enough of them. For manyaspiring to be bigger, highly-active metabolisms, weaker appetites, and on-the-run lifestyles make consuming sufficient calories through whole foods alone a real challenge. With Serious Mass, you’ve got nothing to lose and lots to gain. We’ve consolidated over 1,250 calories, 50 grams of protein, 250-plus grams ofcarbohydrates, and 25 vitamins & minerals with added glutamine and creatine into every serving. It’s time to stop thinking small; get serious – Serious Mass.

BEYOND THE BASICS
  • 1,250 calories per serving in water; 1,630-plus calories when made with low fat milk.
  • 50 grams of protein from a combination of faster andslower digesting sources including Whey, Casein,and Egg.
  • 250-plus grams of carbohydrates to support fueling of intense workouts and aid in the replenishment of glycogen stores - with NO ADDED SUGAR.
  • Enhanced with Creatine, L-Glutamine & Glutamine. Peptides, Choline, Inositol, PABA, and MCTs.
  • 25 Vitamins & Essential Minerals with an emphasis on B-Vitamins and Antioxidants.

Supplement Facts

Add two heaping scoops of Serious Mass to a blender filled
with 24 oz. of water. Blend for 45-60 seconds. Then add a few

ingredients (see “Supercharge Your Serious Mass” below) and
blend for an additional 30-45 seconds. TIPS: Mixing two scoops
of Serious Mass with 24 fl. oz. of nonfat or low fat milk instead
of water will give you a thicker, creamier, higher-calorie shake.daily for the first week and then gradually increase to 1 or
more full servings several times a day.

Serious Mass is a substantial weight-gain supplement that can
be used to feed serious calorie needs in a variety of different
ways.

BETWEEN MEALS: Drink ½ -1 serving of Serious Mass between
meals to maintain positive nitrogen balance and support a
high-calorie diet. POST-WORKOUT: Begin drinking ½ -1 serving
of Serious Mass 30-45 minutes following exercise to support
maximum recovery. BEFORE BED: Drink ½ -1 serving of Serious

Pumping Up? How to Pick Your Protein Supplement

Pumping Up? How to Pick Your Protein Supplement
Pumping Up? How to Pick Your Protein Supplement
: Main Image
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.

Comments about Optimum Nutrition Serious Mass - Strawberry:

This is very good for gaining mass. I put on 27pounds in 2 1/2 months, and still gaining. This would be good belnded into a shake, but as you know we dont have time for that. USE WATER! and shake until there is little to no residue at the bottom and drink it fast. Dont concentrate on the taste because you will find yourslef not wanting to finish it. If you can take it, it packs on pounds. However not a good tasting one. I prefer the Hyperbolic mass gainer by GNC. This is the best, goes down smooth, and tastes better than strawberry milk!

          I Tried the product with Milk alone at first and it wasnt bad, I realized that taking a full serving after working out did make me feel very bloated so I proceeded to take half a serving after working out and then a full serving before bed and over the course of a a month I have gained 6 lbs since using this. Recently I changed up mixing it with milk and started mixing it with orange juice and putting a banana or two in a blender and mixing it all up, works great.

            I take this product every morning after breakfast and it works great! I only take half the serving because I feel too bloated otherwise. I've seen gains since using this product- about ten pounds over the course of three months. Tastes great, somewhat like juice. I didn't notice a chalky taste, but that might be because I only use half a serving with 20 oz of water.

            The taste is horrible, I would stay away from this flavor. I thought I would try strawberry because the banana was so good but it tastes like your drinking water with chalk in it.
