Product Information


1,250 Calories
  • 50 GRAMS of PROTEIN from WHEY, EGG, and CASEIN

Serious weight gain goals require serious
measures. To gain just one pound of
bodyweight, it takes approximately 3,500
calories above and beyond what is needed
for daily maintenance. However, individuals
with high metabolisms often find it difficult
to consume enough whole foods to achieve
this level of caloric intake. What's more,
prepring high-calorie whole food meals
isn't always as convenient or easy as
blending a nutrient-dense shake.

Each great-tasting and convenient serving of Serious Mass provides:
  • 1,250 calories from high-quality, energy-rich sources
  • 50 grams of protein from a combination
    of fast and slow digesting sources including
    Whey, casein, and egg
  • 254 grams of carbohydrates - with NO ADDED SUGAR
    -to support fueling of intense workouts and aid
    in the replenishment of glycogen stores
  • Enhanced with Creatine, Glutamine, and
    Glutamine Peptides to support maximum gains in strength and recovery

Combined with a well-balanced diet and
intense physical activity, Serious Mass offers
an ideal, convenient solution to those often encountered weight-gain
hurdles, helping to support your quest for a massive, powerful physique.

Pleasantly surprised delicious
I was pleased when the GNC rep told me "you know this is for bulking " I let him know I was a soon to be 53 woman and was drastically loosing weight and muscle mass. Told him because of my busy lifestyle and work schedule I can not consume enough calories. I also I just started strength exercises, etc and after reading reviews, u chose Serious Mass. He understood and agreed. Had my first drink today: 1/2 serving, banana, cup of oats, and 2 cups whole milk . Modified a reviewers recipe. Chilled in freezer 15 minutes and too my surprise it was delicious

Hello GNC,I am 6' 1' and I weigh 140 pounds. Last year, my BMI was borderline underweight. I am also vegetarian. All the odds are against my favor in terms of gaining weight. Also, not a day has passed in my life in which a comment has not been made on how skinny I am, teasing, joking, or whatever. At a certain point, the teasing gets too much and I feel like I want to do something about it.My problem as many skinny guys have is eating enough. I really hope that your GNC protein shake actually gives 1250 calories per serving size of two scoops. I have been faithful to the shake for about 2 weeks now and hope that my continued persistence will truly get me the results that I want. It tastes good. I'm not sure if it works yet cuz i started so recently. But i'm happy with everything else.

Is it possible to bulk up using mass gainer while you’re 13 yr old?
BashdiBALDI on Jun 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: If by mass gainer you mean some sort of protein like whey‚ then yes you can bulk up. However since you are only 13 your body is still growing and your metabolism is still very high. You'll have to make sure to have a good healthy diet which is high in protein along with the mass gainer to make sure it works to its fullest potential.

hi...I am ashish,26yrs old. I have an average body having height 6'2 and weight around 79kgs. Actually I had this product(ON Serious MAss) 3 times continuously but what I have seen is when I stop taking it my body becomes so lean and skinny and Stamina is also decreased. So, I just want to know is this a right product for me or I should go for some better product?
Please suggest me.

A shopper on Sep 10, 2012
BEST ANSWER: It sounds like you are seeing results from this product, so you should continue taking it. The reason for your decrease in body mass while not taking this product is that when you stop using it, you are eliminating 1250 calories from your diet. Your body needs a certain number of calories to maintain any weight (higher weights needing more calories), when those calories are reduced your body will start cannibalizing fat and muscle tissue for fuel.

A shopper on Aug 26, 2012
BEST ANSWER: This product will definitely give you the additional calories and protein you'll need to put on extra body mass. Whether or not that extra mass will be more muscle or more fat will depend on your training regime.
