Ok i am skinny, I used to be quite big, never touched roids before and dont intend on doing so, want to be all natural. Events in my life a few years ago caused me to loose alot of weight but now I am on the path to getting big again. I have been taking this hard gainer extreme for about 2 weeks nearly 3. I am eating quite abit more also, I have definatly noticed a difference and I have had comments from friends who I seen over the weekend (Who I havnt seen for about 5 weeks) that I am looking more defined in my chest and shoulders...definition is not what a I want - I want to bulk but it is very early days from me starting this stuff and it is definatly helping me....I am very exited for a few months down the line....I also have the protein 5kg aswel, Taking 1 hard gainer extreme/ 2 a day on some days, with the whey impact protein once every couple days with usually two big meals and some nibbles through out the day. I also do a high calory burning job which is roofing. So this is helping me so much thanks guys ! Taste is beautiful I have chocolate , Mixes up very fast, have had some bity bits in it but doesnt bother me, When my 5 kg is done I will be getting more :D
I have used this product to help support a previously poor diet and subsequent low weight issues. Starting this July as at 9 stone I have managed to work my weight up to 10 stone in just over two months with a novice weight training regime. I tried Hurricane XS first with little result. I then found this and started to see improvements. I have one for breakfast and another after training (At home around 3 times per week for 45mins). I have been very impressed with this product which has help add to my calorie intake each day. I seem to burn loads just by breathing and I don't really have the biggest appetite to start with. I have found chocolate smooth to be the best as the other flavours to be too sweet. At the end of the day it's personal preference, however the main point there is ZERO bad aftertaste, it's just like a milkshake, bar the bits of oats of course! Mixing is fine when used with the blender bottle. Price is amazing against others, a lot of protein and calories for your money. Delivery is quick, secure and easy hence I am well into my 5th order overall. I think it's amazing what I have achieved with minimal training, imagine the results if I trained harder while using this product?!
Hi all, I have a question for all those who have used this and those of you at my protein. Would you still recommend me taking this along with my regular whey protein or is this enough by its self?
I use this in conjunction with milk protein smooth(before bed and morning after workout), oats and whey bar (in my lunch day after a workout) and instant oats(with the milk protein). Gone through 6 kilos of this and can say it works perfectly! Used a range of my protein supplement but this one is the best so far for gaining size without any body fat! Mixes well and chocolate mint tastes amazing, perfect for after a workout! Only going off of it as I have ordered 5kg of the spectrum 12 gainer as it was on offer, so I will see which is better when I've finished that
The extreme hard gainer is a good product and does was it is supposed to. The only problem I have with it is that it tastes way to sweet!!
Have been using this with 500ml of whole milk for 3 weeks now and I've managed to gain 6lbs. Mixability isn't fantastic especially in the cookies and cream even using a blender, however is better in the mint chocolate. Tastes really good though and results are really beginning to show fast. Price is the best I've found out their and MP have excelled themselves once again.
I would definitely recommend this product for anyone looking to put on some size. Not fat gains!! I use it before training and also in the evening. It mixes well, and I was surprised that it didn't leave me full up to the point I couldn't eat. Taste is ok. It's sweet but not overbearing. Make sure your training hard or you will just put on fat! Overall good product and I'll be buying it again.
Hey so I took this expecting it to taste reasonable and because they had no impact weight gainer and here are my thoughts. As a person who truly sticks by Myprotein supplements I like to think I can be fair and honest so here goes... The Mixability in a shaker is poor, It could be due to the thick starchy bits or the type of powders they have used, as some don't refine as well as say whey protein which is very fine! The second thing is that when your drinking it those bits really stick to your throat, and give it a real texture, kinda like drinking sand! The third thing is the taste, which is drinkable but coupled with that grainy sand texture makes it a real chore to get down! I have to psyche myself up and really chug at it to get it down me, so overall the mix of carb to protein is really good, however the difficulty drinking this stuff makes it worthy of chore status! I'm going to feel proud when I've got through 2 kilos of this next week!!
I have been usin this product for a good few months now and I thouroughly enjoy it! I recommend to anyone wanting to put on a good amount of size and weight but of course you still need to keep a good diet with a lot of protein carbs and fibre if you want to bulk up - you can't just rely on this product, you need to put hard work in at the gym and this will help aid to our results! Thank you myprotien!Goes Well With:Itself
Yeah thats right, this product is tailor made to help you make gainz and get calories inbetween meals on the go and thats why its perfect for me, perfect ratio of carbs to protein to keep your digestive system smooth and absorb protein and get energy. At budget price! Goes Well With:Hard gym sessions and long work hours and a high calorie diet
As someone who struggles to put on extra weight, I started using this as a morning and post workout shake (with Total Protein at night)....admittedly I also started using Tribulus and Spirulina at the same time and re-vamped my workout plan...but something is working well as I gained several kilos within a matter of weeks....and it's in all the right places!Goes Well With:Total Protein Spirulina Tribulus Pro Creatine monohydrate
Bought when on offer from MP and it was 25% off, so bargain. Suitable for vegetarians (which is the reason I buy from MP). Product tastes fine, I bought chocolate mint, which is quite minty and pleasant to drink. All-in-all a good product. There are products out there with more calories but the mix of calories to protein and quality of ingredients is all good. I would think twice about buying it at it's full price though as there are many cheaper options than MyProtein. Incidentally, I twice tried their "Price match" option which is supposed to offer a price match on items that are similar from other manufacturers, but they denied me both times as the product wasn't EXACTLY the same. Obviously they don't know what "similar" means. I wouldn't bother with this again, just buy their products when their best offers are around.
Excellent product, does exactly what its supposed to and tastes great. started out using the chocolate but got a bit sweet for me after a while, changed to Vanilla which also tastes great and mixes well.
It's proving to be effective. It's supporting my GVT gains very well at the moment. Although I haven't compared it to any other equivalent, it is proving more effective than straight impact whey. I take it 2-3 times daily and mix it with milk protein smooth before bed. The taste shouldn't matter but some people care so, if you must know, it tastes great (choc mint). There are 'bits' that won't mix/dissolve but this is not a 'flaw' in the product. Just shake hard, down it, and carry on.
Chocolate is a nice taste and easy to drink
Fantastic supplement that makes it easy to get those extra calories in. Just make sure you avoid the chocolate smooth flavour. It is FAR too sweet.
taste 5/5 results 5/5 I drink 2-3 a day and lasts me a month or just over the quality of the product is very good and if you want to gain lean muscles but struggle to maintain or gain weight I would use this!
I started taking this to put on extra weight. I weighed a little over 9stone when I first started taking it. I take 1 scoop twice a day - once after breakfast, the other either in the evening or before the gym. I also mix oats in with it. In 4-6 weeks I put on a stone. 4 weeks following that, I stayed at the 10 stone mark. It does dehydrate you so I dont like to think what my liver is going through or what it would go through if I took the daily recommended amount but I drink plenty of water so hopefully its not too bad. Mixing - not great, although not a lot to compare to. Taste - vanilla is quite nice, banana reminds me of school banana milkshake but its a bit on the sweet side for me. I would recommend if you are looking to put weight on as it does work. I have tried everything from just upping my meal sizes to eating more meals - none of it worked and to be honest were pretty hard going either finding the time or the stomach space to do it all in one go. Having cereal, shake lunch, shake then tea has worked. Goes Well With:Oats and milk
Put on plenty of size and weight in just under a month, the taste is amazing, goes down really well, I tried mixing with water and didn't enjoy as much as I did with milk, it goes nice and thick, only issue is there's always plenty of bits in the shake. Overall 10/10.
Great taste and mixablity, i put on 6 pounds in just over a week along with a good diet. Have tried strawberry and mint chocolate and both have been really good. Would recommend anyone who struggles to put on mass.
I take this shake three to four times a week after training sessions. I believe this to be an excellent post workout shake and has all you need to re-fuel the body after a heavy weights or cardio session. By only taking this on workout days I can increase my calorie intake when its needed and not run the risk of putting on unwanted excess weight. I will say though as many before me no doubt have, be prepared for gas. As with all gainers of this nature flatulence can be a problem. As far as taste/mix-ability and its effectiveness are concerned I would say it achieves all three relatively well. It can however clump up during mixing so a good shaker is required or a blender, the use of more liquid also helps. I so far have only tasted the smooth chocolate and have no problems albeit slightly sweet. Goes Well With:Tri-Carb pre workout
Do not buy strawberry u have been warned lol i find vanilla to be the best 3 scoops mixes well with green top milk dont use blue top or u will get lumps overall a very decent product i put on 2 stone with eating right and using this so i give it 4 out of 5 :^)
If you are like me you might have a hard time gaining muscle mass when you work out. Definition is no problem but putting on the muscle mass we all like to see would be a plus. With Hard Gainer Extreme I have seen great gains in muscle mass since I have started taking it. I would highly recommend this product from weights to aerobics workouts it helps fuel your body and prepares you for your next day.Goes Well With:Pre-Pare
Just arrived. My main comparison is USN hardgainer formula which I'm switching from due to cost of it going up in the last few months to a rediculous price. I ordered strawberry extreme hard-gainer extreme, to be honest it is not an enjoyable shake at all. Strong taste of artificial sweetener, a weird Coconut subtle aftertaste somehow too. it takes a good while in a blender to get to a smooth consistency, always slightly granular in texture. Prob a nightmare in a shaker. Goes down easy enough with water or milk though. However I'm concerned that I'm not recieving the advertised nutrition as there seems to a something in it that becomes insoluble and sticks to the glass I don't know what it is though. Can't comment on the effect of it yet. Will do once I finish the 5kg. Currently 62.8kg (lowest in years) aiming for 66-67kg by the end of the bag. Will see what happens. USN seems to expand somewhat in the stomach and bags u up a bit, this doesn't so much but again too early to tell fully. Took me 10weeks to gain 9lbs (4kg) with USN and the gym last year (most progress I have EVER made, I'm a true hard gainer). Since lost it all (as is my metabolic nature), and back to square one. So it's a fairly balanced contest. Really hoping it works as I've read in other reviews because it's much cheaper than USN and although no where near as complex in terms of extras in the formula (Bcaa's, digestive complexes etc) I'm hoping it still pumps on the pounds! Usn does work and if you want guaranteed result and can afford it then go for it. Otherwise i will update in may to give My final verdict and results. Hope this helps someone!
Long review of my experience with this product. I used the Banana flavour 5kg bag which i've just finished. It lasted me a little over a month. Before I started using this product as part of my routine I weighed a bulky fairly ripped 88.2kg - 13.8 stone. My daily calorie intake was averaging 2500-2700. Once I added the hard gainer into my plan my calorie intake went up to 4000-4300 a day on weekdays and 5000+ on weekends. I train powerlifting and enter competitions so quick recovery is essential. I train 3 days a week. The only thing I didn't like about the product was the bits inside the powder. It was very unexpected and made it a little difficult to drink at times. So, the Bad - • Bits in the powder (only used Banana so far so unsure of the other flavours. • Didn't last very long for the cost. The Good - • It tasted great (Banana flavour was easily tasted, shame about the bits.) • It worked! My final weight has gone up (see end of review.) • Helps speed up recovery • Doesn't leave you feeling bloated, you can still fit meals in along with it instead of using it as a meal replacement. • Slight Strength increase, improved stamina (I lifted heavier for longer. I weighed myself at have ended my first cycle of this product weighing 92.3kg. Remember, I started weighing 82.2kg. Don't get me wrong, this is no miracle worker!! You still have to work hard with this product otherwise you will just get fat. Although I can still see my abs they do not stand out as much as they did at the beginning. This in fairness is to be expected so i'm not worried. I will definitely be using this product again. I will just be trying a different flavour.
Does wat it says on the tin excellent product.
I've just started using mp and ordered the vanilla hard gainer extreme as I'm underweight and need something to help me fill up the calories I'm not reaching until my body gets used to all the calories, as I get full very easily. This product is a great way to help myself start to reach my target calories per day without getting too full or forcing myself to eat when I can't stomach it. I picked the vanilla flavour as it's pretty neutral and can be mixed with almost any smoothie or shake ingredients - plus I love vanilla milkshakes! I forgot to order a scoop so I had to improvise with my first shake, just mixing the powder with milk and blending 'till it was frothy! And to say I've never used mp powders before - I was expecting the taste to a least be a little weird, or the texture a little off... It's not! It tastes great! No aftertaste at all, blends really easily with my blender (Breville mix and go) after only 45 seconds and no lumps! The only reason I've given mixability 4/5 is because after it sits for a minute or two between sips it separates a little - it doesn't look vile but isn't as attractive, so you just have to shake it again :) Goes Well With:Caramel syrup blueberries / rasberries / strawberries / banana
Been struggling with gaining weight for years tried everything then got told about this product so I gave it a shot. WOW! Great product I've gained 6lb in a week and still gaining yeah there's still little bits when shaken but it's still drinkable if you want to gain weight fast this is the product for you :)
Best product on market for me good price and fast delivery
Having bought the weight gainer before, i decided to try out a different flavour which was chocolate cream. This taste really nice actually, i usually put 3 scoops in 500ml milk with 2 small scoops of monohydrate. To increase my work out, i also use 2 tea spoons of spurilina powder and some blueberries.Blend it all in n drink up!Shaking would leave lumps just to bare in mind.The chocolate taste over powers everything so your sure to fine.But most of all, i found that short reps heavy wrights is the key to building mass.This drink isnt magic, you need to train well in order to see improvements..I saw it within a week so i must be doing something right! Goes Well With:Spirulina powder, dried oats, monohydrate
As a hard gainer I can definitely recommend this product to others who struggle with gaining maintaining bodymass. It tastes good and mixes very easily in both water and milk. Give it a try, you won't regret it!Goes Well With:Impact Whey
Gained 8lbs whilst using this. I'm a skinny guy who finds it difficult to gain weight. This gave me the extra protein and calorie intake I needed to see a real change in my muscle mass.Goes Well With:Bananas and milk
The taste is very good but when I mixed the product in a blender their allways seems to be little brown bits left and they dont blend is that normal ??
This is a fantastic mass gaining shake. It tastes great and for a mass gainer it mixes well. I have really noticed and increase in mass from this product. After analysing how much food I was eating and falling short this shake is perfect to boost calories. It can be used as a meal replacement if you add things like banana and peanut butter etc etc. overall 5 stars as it is effective in all areas. Goes Well With:Skimmed milk, peanut butter, banana
Hi i purchased this.product, i.was suppose to get 20% discount, but never got it, it is a nice product, and seems to do its job.
Just bought this so can't really comment on its effectiveness (based my rating on nutritional info). I'd suggest splitting the serving size in two and having two shakes rather than try and mix 100g of powder with 700ml of water/milk because it simply doesn't mix unless you use a blender. Bought vanilla, tastes fine.
Cookies and cream tastes delicious and it's not too bad to mix either. It's filled with good carbs as well, it's not loaded with sugars like a lot of mass gainers do to make up calories. Goes Well With:Milk :-)
Never usually comment about taste after all my view is just get it down, but seriously the mint chocolate is delicious! Like mint choc chip ice cream!! Seem to be making gains although it's early days so can't score effectiveness all that well effectively. Very happy with all my MyProtein products in the past and don't expect this to be any less effective! Best priced quality protein and supplements you'll find on t'interwebGoes Well With:BCAA Creatine Monohydrate
Tastes great, reasonably effective, could mix better.
Takes bit of use to get used to the taste, I needed a shake with a bit more power, and I can see and feel a difference already, mates at gym have said train hard and do cardio if not a belly will come,
The product does not mix well at all, it is therefore a pain to drink. However, by looking at the nutritional information, we can see that the product if effective.Goes Well With:Milk
one of my favorite gainers so fare. It mixes perfectly and the taste is amazing.
I bought the banana flavour and after using it a couple of times I found myself gagging at the smell of this product. The banana flavour did not smell or taste like banana at all and always left a gritty, sandy mixture at the bottom. That being said I think this product has great potential, just don't choose banana!
Taste is great, mixes well. Few flax seeds remains understandable. I'm doing half measure shakes to keep the wind down.Goes Well With:Extra carbs with some added oats
Have only used this product for two and a half weeks and I can already see the results, well worth the money and I will continue to use the product and will consider using different items from the site in future.
Cookies and cream is awesome. Nice with milk and water (mixed). Little but grainy, but that's because of the flax seed. Take a good few vigorous shakes to get it to mix in properly. Goes Well With:A handful of almonds
I've tried a few weight gainers and by far this has to be the most sweetest one I've had (strawberry), in milk it tastes amazing. I haven't had any problems with mixability as of yet, mixes very easy with water (I have a shaker with the metal ball in it which also helps alot!). As for results I have seen strength gains but only time will tell if it really helps me add on the mass I want.Goes Well With:Milk
Amazing quality it's why I always encourage my clients to use myprotein. You get what you need no hassle great delivery time, quality, and range this has a great taste and really puts in would recommend anyone to take this.Goes Well With:I love getting a rice cake, smash some peanut butter on it with a sprinkle of powder, decent!
I have always had poor tasting protein which has been unbearable to drink and would make me gag, but this is pleasant to drink (cookies and cream) the mix is good but not great, I use with creatine monohydrate and I advise mixing the powder in the shaker first and then adding the whole milk (for the extra calories!) Personally I have seen results in the first few weeks of use however I was a minor 10Stone to start now I'm just shy of 11. Definitely advise this product if your thin and are looking to make gains and looking to bump up the calorie intake to combat a rapid metabolism.
Decent stuff did put on weight but also gained weight on the stomach.
