Why did we design Hard Gainer Extreme?
When striving to increase mass and size, you must be in a calorie surplus (energy intake > energy expenditure), otherwise you will be facing an uphill battle. Accomplishing this will require you to consume regular calorie-dense meals and snacks, although, this can be extremely challenging with such hectic lifestyles. Therefore, Hard Gainer Extreme is a potent blend tailored towards weight gain and muscle bulk.
How did we design Hard Gainer Extreme?
Hard Gainer Extreme is a potent blend containing four different types of proteins, including hydrolysed whey protein and calcium caseinate. On top of this, three different carbohydrates have been incorporated, including both waxy maize starch - a complex carbohydrate, and maltodextrin – a short chain carbohydrate. Complimentary flaxseeds and inulin complete the finishing touches to this extremely popular supplement.
What are the Key Benefits?
Protein – 32g of high quality protein per serving (100g – 3 scoops) will contribute to the growth, repair and maintenance of lean muscle mass.
Carbohydrates – 46g of carbohydrates per serving (100g – 3 scoops) will help fuel your workouts, replenish your glycogen stores post-exercise and support weight-gain.
Healthy fats – Flaxseeds and medium chain triglycerides are healthy fats to support a healthy balanced diet.
Calories – a staggering 382 calories per serving will help support weight-gain.
Inulin – this is a carbohydrate that good bacteria in your digestive system utilises to produce a number of nutrients which are beneficial towards human health.
Is this product for me?
Hard Gainer Extreme is a perfectly tailored supplement for anyone striving or struggling to increase size and mass. Alternatively, this product is ideal for post-recovery as it contains proteins (for repair), carbohydrates and fats (for replenishment).
When should I consume Hard Gainer Extreme?
To reap the benefits of this product, our expert team of nutritionists recommend consuming this product first thing in the morning or immediately pre/post workout.

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
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!!
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?!
I've been using this product for over a month now, and honestly, it works! Ever since I started University, my stress levels risen tenfold. I was almost always stressed out due to University work and quite a few personal problems. This all caused me to lose significant weight. My friends in University noticed how skinny I've gotten, and when I met up with a good friend who I haven't seen for over 3 years, the first thing he noticed was my weight loss. It didn't feel good, at all. I'm still stressed out a lot lately, however I told myself that I need to do something to at least lower my stress levels. So I decided to exercise again more often, but I needed a mass gainer since I don't gain weight easily, and I'm a massive eater for my size. My friend suggested to check out this website, so I bought this. I got the chocolate smooth flavour, which, in my opinion, was a lot sweeter than I expected. There are also 'bits' in it, however I got used to it. However, my brother and my cousin tasted it a little and they said it tasted good, so I guess it was just my preferences in taste. I take this straight after workouts, 2 times a day, morning and afternoon. I have gained noticeable weight in 1-2 weeks, and now over a month of taking this mass gainer, I look a lot more healthier and I've gained some muscle now. In conclusion, this product really worked for me in terms of gaining mass and muscle to bulk up. I will buy this again once my current one runs out.
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!!
Tip : Put your Water or Milk in your shaker first then add your powder. If it's still a bit lumpy then next time add 1 scoop, shake then add another and repeat. The most productive way I find to gain weight is to; Eat breakfast then have my 3 scoop shake. Then have a high protein and carb snack (for example, 1 1/2 tuna or chicken sandwich, 3 rice cakes) 3 hours after with 1 1/2 scoop shake. 3 hours later, have your high protein and carb lunch again with 3 rice cakes and 1 scoop shake. 3 hours later, have your high protein and carb snack again with 3 rice cakes and 1 1/2 scoop shake. Intense Workout 1 scoop after Half an hour after workout, another snake but now 3 scoops Now this isn't easy once you start but the more you do this the easier it gets, you have to be strict though, stick to it. You will be consuming over 1,300 calories per day in your Hard Gainer alone so it's important your are getting an extreme workout to go with this, this regime will allow you to do cardio whilst gaining muscle, cardio is the best way to workout your most important muscle - your heart so do not neglect your cardio. The healthier you heart the quicker oxygen get's to your muscle and helps recover quicker. Follow these and you will notice within 10-14 days the muscle gained.Goes Well With:Water or Whole Milk
Started this to get my weight up for navy recruitment between the use off this product and hard training I ve gained the pounds required and managed to keep it on something I ve struggled with always willing to try something new but complain this made me gain :)Goes Well With:Whole milk :)
Impeccable service yet again from My Protein, I ordered late Sunday and Tuesday morning I have my products! For value & effectiveness this product is perfect, Ive seen some great gains from this and being 6'0 and pretty slim its helped me a lot. It mixes and tastes really good (smooth choc), I throw peanut butter, bcaa and nutella in to make it 1000+ cals for the gainzz. I have seen a lot of reviews saying it doesnt mix well and tastes gritty - *shake harder or make sure your protein is in a dry mixer so as not to stick to the bottom (mistake I make every other day unfortunately) *it is not prosecco, its protein power with water/milk, it is not going to mix to Michelin star perfection so stop moaning about the 'gritty/sandy consistency'!!!! Goes Well With:Milk, nutella, peanut butter and bcaa - perfection
Adding this to my diet has been great! I seem to have a very high metabolisim and a couple of these shakes a day is helping me finally get done gains I want! Great product and taste, myprotein dose it again! Thankyou :) Goes Well With:Milk or water
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
Despite the enthusiastic title 'HARD GAINER EXTREME - Ultimate weight gain formula' this is a really numb product for its desired effect. While the exaggerating adjectives 'extreme' & 'ultimate' imply this is heavy duty gear, it really isn't. 2 and a half scoops of this stuff is still only 400-odd calories. Which is poor compared to competitors, some of whom offer up to and above 1,000 calories per shake. Yes I understand that in body-building calories aren't everything, macros come into it as well as numerous other things, but when you're a real 'hardgainer' (who this product is clearly targetted toward) calorific surplus is essential for growth. You might as well have a bag of Haribo than neck this stuff. Also, the mixability and taste is pathetic really. Even after diluting with a litre of water and throwing it in a blender, twice, this stuff still has the consistency of gravel. I thought I liked Banana milkshakes, don't buy the Banana flavour, just don't.Goes Well With:water, if you're making cement.
Bought this product a week ago and starting to drink before I joined the gym, I started to notice that my urine changed colour (Brown/Red),I then had to make an appointment to the doctors and he then told me that I had blood in my urine because of the protein I was taking. This Protein does not mix well, taste like sand...... at the bottom of my protein shaker it looks like sand. I suggest to everyone to spend little more money on a better brand than My Protein.Goes Well With:Nothing
Definitely the best tasting protein I have had yet and I've gone from Maxi, Sci, TPW and many others but the chocolate mint from MP is by far the best flavour yet. I have only had it for 2 weeks now and I can see I am now putting on more weight but my fat % is still low so it must be doing its job very well. Hopefully I have found the one that will help me reach my goals. Thanks MyProteinGoes Well With:Any milk or water.
I've been using this product to supplement my boxing training and have put on 2.5 stone of muscle so far. I was very skinny and could never put on any weight. Train hard, be consistent, and you will see gains.
I love this stuff, so much so that I have purchased 2 additional flavours! Originally bought the cookies & cream flavour. Since bought chocolate and banana. They all taste great, and mix really well in a shaker without having to use a blender. My personal fave at the minute is 1 scoop of banana & 1.5 of chololate in 500ml of milk. YUM! I'm a 25 year old female and have gained just over a stone in 4 weeks with regular exercise. Goes Well With:Milk
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.
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.
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.
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 :^)
I'd like to start of by saying I have nothing against MyProtein products- I have the Impact Whey Isolate and numerous pills and I love them. Having said that, I thought I would purchase this mass gainer in banana flavour, thinking the taste would be something different and nice- I was wrong. I really cannot recommend the taste, its very gritty and has large bits in it- I realise these are the oats that contribute to the calories, but overall it's not a nice taste. My biggest gripe is the mixability. I cannot get a smooth (or even near smooth) shake. I've tried everything bar using a blender. I've tried with both milk and water and even used one half milk with one scoop and then shook and then added the remaining milk and second scoop. I know using a blender would give that smooth consistency but that takes away the whole idea of an 'easy shake'... I suppose the biggest thing to note is that I have gained weight and lots of it alongside a good gym routine. But make sure you are going to the gym because you may end up putting on pounds around your stomach and not achieving that physique you're after. In conclusion, I wouldn't buy again but I would continue to buy from MyProtein because I know most of their products are brilliant.Goes Well With:a blender probably...
I found it mixed well, the taste was good and easy to drink. Goes Well With:I preferred with milk.
If you struggle to get your calories in, then this product is definitely for you. I always found it tough to get the calories I needed to gain weight. I then decided to buy this product and now I can just have a shake sometime in the day and then I easily hit my macros. Best for people who can't hit macros if you can get them with proper food then this isn't for you. I got the choc smooth flavour, very nice quite sweet but still good/ Goes Well With:Milk, Water
Very good protein powder, tastes really well and shows gains over time. Would recommend this to anyone else trying to build lean mass.
The hardgainer is a good tasting, easy mixing protein. I have put on a few pounds over the first few weeks I'm combination with weight work. Seems to do what it says in the tin.Goes Well With:Water or milk but I use coconut milk.
Great quality supplement that does what it says on the pouch! Combining this with a whole lot of bulking foods has certainly helped towards my goals! I would recommend this to anyone in need of bulking!
Great product to help gain weight/body mass.. Mixes a lot better with a blender rather than a shaker bottle.. Got myself the vanilla flavour which tasted delicious 😃Goes Well With:Milk and frozen fruit
Before I bought this product I read allot of bad reviews saying that it tasted like dog food it was grainy and other bad stuff, other reviews I read were good so I tried it anyway confident enough to buy 5k. The people who said bad stuff are clearly wrong or they eat with silver wear, I found that you don't need 2 and a half large scoops and that half half milk water is nice after feeling the effects I actually like to drink this shake and it's not in any way a bad taste tastes good. Just so you know this isn't a one sided thing I'd just go ahead and buy this if your thinking about it like I did because if your not a moron you will see why it's so good I bought smooth chocolate love the stuff you can tell it's no joke the service is the best products the best Goes Well With:Milk and water
I have been using HG extreme for about 5 months. I struggled putting on weight so gave this a try. I must say It worked fantastically. With 2 shakes a day mixed with full fat milk I was putting on circa a pound a week. In 5 months I have put on over a stone. I have tried strawberry, vanilla and banana so far. The strawberry is a little sweet for my liking but very tasty, vanilla can be a little bland at times, banana so far is the best tasting but appears thicker than the others when mixing with milk. I have a shake first thing in the morning mixed with plain ground oats and a shake on its own after work out.Goes Well With:Ground oats in the morning to kick start the day. A spoon of smooth peanut butter to add a nutty taste to the flavor and extra protein when needed.
Bought this on the reviews alone and am very pleased. Following the guidelines to the letter and I am gaining weight everyday. Can't say a bad word. Really recommend as I find it hard to gain weight and this has gone well into my diet and I'm seeing growth from the extra calories.Goes Well With:I like to mix it with milk then make porridge with it but that's just me.
Thought I would try this as an alternative to a more expensive brand. Having used other myprotein products in the past I expected the taste to be similar but the chocolate smooth was so bad (really strange overpowering artificial sweet taste) I couldn't finish 1 shake. Really disappointing.
I have used weight gainer extreme now for about a year and have put on 2 stone (from 9st, to just over 11st) - I go to the gym 3.4 times per week. The taste is good and it mixes really well (and quick) but it does taste a little sweet so is much more difficult to drink in the morning. I normally have 3 of these a day. 1 for breakfast, 1 after a workout and 1 before bed. Will continue to use! Great product. Goes Well With:Milk / water
The Myprotein hard gainer is exactly what I need. It gives me the protein I need as well as an extra 1200 calories a day. I struggle to put on weight but this definitely helps me on my way. When I'm taking this on a regular basis it allows me to put on a small amount of lean muscle.Goes Well With:Creatine and BCAA's.
Bought this blend to gain muscle mass, however I began to experience blocked sensations in my intestinal region which were sore in addition to aches and pains in my kidneys. This was taking 2 servings a day and even taking half a serving after a week's break the pains came back. It would probably be better to calculate your daily macros based on your bodyweight so you know how much protein and so on you should have with each meal to bulk (personally I think 36g protein is too much for 1 meal). Much better to get your macros from real food.
Very nice tasting but a little gritty in texture, good results however and does the job wellGoes Well With:Banana
Great for adding weight. I've seen real results quickly due to my small stature.
Banana flavour tastes really good, mixes well and is helping me gain weight and muscle, 5*
Could see difference almost instantly after using this product, both my weight and physique was changing and I found is easier to build and train muscle after use. Would buy again.
This is now my second purchase of this product and I can't fault it! Just as good as the high priced competitors out there! Will be buying again once got through this pack. Goes Well With:Milk
Went with the cookies and cream and it is delicious, goes well with my diet plan, would and have recommended to friends, and will definitely be coming back for more
I really wanted to bulk up and so i thought this was perfect. nope. it tastes really sweet and not like cookies and cream at all. it also has these weird bits that feel like sand in your throat. i found out these are oats... i think its safe to say i may be going to The Protein works, if they taste good. especially as i got a kilo of jaffa cake and a free 250g bag of butterscotch. so if these are good, myprotein will lose a customer..
Noticed a lot of the reviews on this product stated how poorly it mixed, but being a fan of myprotein and wanting a cheap mass gainer, I bit the bullet and thought i'd try it for myself. Well all i can say is that those reviews were right. I got the chocolate mint flavour which tastes lovely, but it is completely ruined by the grainy sand like bits that float about in the shake that just won't dissolve. Makes the drink almost undrinkable.
Been using MyProtein for nearly 2 years now and every so often when needed I get the gainer. Its a definate help if you struggle to get those calories in daily. 3 scoops with quite a bit of water twice a day seems to do the trick. Noticed that the batch ive just bought seems to be a lot thicker than it used to be. Been cutting so not used it in about half a year. Overall would recommend the product. Chocolate mint is my personal favourite but its not all about the taste its about getting the job done and in my opinion does it. Goes Well With:H2O
I had troubles to get weigth, when I tried this product everything changed. It's very easy and fast way to get couple extra kilos. And I like very much that creamy cookie taste, hmmm you can just enjoy :)Goes Well With:Milk
I honestly cant praise this product enough. I'm a slim guy who has always been very active and athletic but has found it hard to put on mass. I started taking Hardgainer Extreme around 8 weeks ago and along with a heavy lifting weight program have put on around 16lbs. So far I have only tried the chocolate smooth flavour which tastes great and is so much cheaper than the mass gainers I have tried.The shakes are easy to drink and I find that they aren't upsetting on the stomach like many other brands. The only one flaw I have found is that the mix-ability can be a little tough at times and I often get left with lumps in the bottom 1/4 of the shake but other than that I cant fault it. The 5KG bags are enough to last me the month and I have just ordered my 3rd bag.
First time I've purchased anything like this and it has worked great so far! I've managed to gain 4lbs in 5 days which is amazing to me!! I ordered the vanilla flavour and it tastes just like a milkshake. I do blend mine with a hand blender as if it is just shaken in a bottle it tends to have lumps and bits all at the bottom! Overall I am happy with the results so far and I will definately be buying from My Protein again soon!!! Goes Well With:Milk
This is one of the most natural tasting supplements out there (Chocolate smooth). The first gulp has an aftertaste, but after that it tastes just like chocolate. The only downside is its a bit too sweet! Sometimes contains clumps so you need to shake for about 30 secs. Been using it a few weeks and already gained some weight but not sure if it's the good kind yet. The weight gain suggests it's working I guess. WISH MYPROTEIN WOULD JUST USE SUGAR IN ITS PRODUCTS INSTEAD OF ARTIFICIAL SWEETENERS WHICH CAN CAUSE CANCER!Goes Well With:Water, milk
I once got offered this shake by a friend who kindly donated a bag to me and I have found fantastic results. I have managed to put on weight very easily alongside training. I have put on 1.5 stones in 3 months using this protein shake only. I have also got some creatine now to get the most out of my training and so I can feed my muscle properly with this Goes Well With:Creatine Monohydrate
On my second pouch of this product and have noticed significant gains over half a stone in 6 weeks. Strength has also increased due to the gains. On 2 shakes a day, tastes good and enjoying the resultsGoes Well With:Water
Very good product will buy it again
What a product this is. Does exactly what it says on the tin,hard gainer! I would totally recommend this product to anyone who is trying to bulk and put on muscle size. I have gained just over 5kg in muscle in just over 4 weeks. I will always buy this product now as this is the best I have ever seen. Well done My Protein fantastic product! Goes Well With:Milk or water
