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 was wondering if someone could help me, I'm a 16 year old girl and was wondering if this would help me gain some weight?? I'm just under 7 stone and I would like to be a bit bigger??
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?
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?!
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!!
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
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
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
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.
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 :^)
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
So im 5"6 and a undewhelming 50kg!! I go the the gym work out hard using free weights and mainly focusing on building muscle. I follow IIFYM and wanted to bulk but found it IMPOSSIBLE to physically fit in all that food and macros that i needed for the amount of days i go to the gym a week. Plus i was making no gains at all - infact i was DROPPING weight which i did not need!! I just couldnt put in the calories i was putting out but didnt want to stop working out because i want to increase size. Obviously you run the risk of putting on the "WRONG" kind of weight by eating too much surplus in the wrong form. So after some research and calling my protein nutrition team their advice was to try this stuff. Boy am i glad i did! - Adds an extra 400 calories ot my diet just through a drink and its the right kind of macros to be adding - high protein- high carb. I bought the Cookies & Cream flavour and it is LUSH but be warned VERY VERY SWEET - some days i find it too sickly - will try the chocolate next time. I use my hand held blender and mix with milk or water and the consistency is perfect As far as results go i havent been using it long enough to tell but i know at least im hitting my goals and calorie intake with a lot less issues than before! Hiighly reccomend this product - Great value for money too!Goes Well With:Almond Milk Water Protein Puddings (Mug Cakes)
Does what its supposed to. Taste could be a little better, and the mixability can cause lumps at times, but downing it had been effective for me. Helped me gain around 10kg across a year of on and off use.Goes Well With:Water, Milk
Fast delivery! Tastes and mixes great also seems ti wrk good too as iv gained 3kg in 3 weeks! Would recommend to anyone with fast metabolism. Goes Well With:Milk
This is a great product, I usually add 1.5 scoops to a pint of whole milk for about 700 calories, 3 or 4 times a day. I've been doing this for about three weeks so far and I've gained about 10kgs. It would be impossible for me to take in so many calories without this supplement, even using the whole milk diet. Note about the flavours: only choose chocolate mint if you *really* like mint chocolate chip ice cream. Otherwise you will get bored of the very sweet taste. Chocolate Smooth is better IMO, or Cookies and Cream.Goes Well With:Pint of whole milk
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
This tastes good.... but then its got mostly sugar in it, in various forms. So whilst its got lots of carbs, not sure I want to stick to drinking this. Should have thought about it a bit more before buying.
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!
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
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.
I was recommended this product from a friend n I love it its the best thing I have tried works and does exactly as it should I buy it every month
very good product but does anyone else have loads of brown bits at the bottom of there and floating around in it i have bought 6 new shakers and still the same or is that just how it is?
Far too sweet.... Just realised it's got loads of SUGAR & SWEETNER in it!!!! I hardly eat sugar, no wonder this makes me feel sick... The fact that the ingredients don't actually say sugar is misleading but then should I of googled each ingredient to make sure there wasn't any! Now I'm stuck with this 2.5kg bag! I feel deceived to be honest. Mixes fine. Tastes like your eating sugar so good if you like that kind of thing. Won't be buying again!!!Goes Well With:Water
This gainer seems to be effective I've used it for 2 weeks and have gained around 6lb. I got the cookies n cream flavour first time i rate the taste 3/5 hard to get down sometimes. I recently got banana flavour and it is best flavour I've tasted in a shake 5/5. Flavouring is like McDonald's milkshake.Goes Well With:Milk Water Oats
After using the Impact Weight Gainer and loving it - I thought i'd try the next one up, how bad can it be, right? It was quite simply awful. I now have 2.4kg of the stuff sat untouched. Firstly, the powder just does not mix, i was left with powder at the bottom, a brown coloured water in the middle with bits in and then lots more bits floating on the top. Then, when you taste it (i had the Vanilla flavour), it was just like drinking sugar and water. I don't know how anyone could manage to drink 700ml of this stuff. Seriously, just buy the Impact Weight Gainer, it tastes and mixes great, and only requires 250ml of liquid. So if needs be, double/triple that for a higher calorie intake than this product.
I noticed about 6lb gain within the first 2 weeks of use. Mixes pretty well and banana flavour is good. I'm switching impact weight gainer though for hopefully less bloating which I think may derive from the high sugar ingredients. I can't be sure though. I haven't tried many other products to compare. I've been having 1 scoop (30g) in the morning and 1 scoop in the evening.Goes Well With:Milk
I'd been stuck at the same weight and shape for quite a while. As a naturally slim guy, with a job that gets me walking/running all day, I hadn't seen any progression. Since being on Hard gainer extreme, people have actually commented on the body changes. The mint chocolate flavour is great if you've got a sweet tooth like I have - my top tip to increase mixability is to put a bit of water and some ice cubes in first, then the powder, and then top up the shake. I'm on my second large bag now, and I can see I'll be definitely buying this again.
this shake works well and will help you gain mass, but it does not mix well with anything, i use a blender on the highest setting and you still get lumps in your drink which makes you literally heave, all the carbs get left in the bottom as they dont blend in either, would not recommend buying at all. ive just bought serious mass as i tried a friends and that was 200 times better than thisGoes Well With:nothing
Very pleased with this. I have used this before but in the choc mint flavour and this cookies & cream is much nicer. I have also bought other cheaper gainers over the internet which can be very hit or miss, but MP is good quality every time. I use a shaker to mix with and would recommend this as it leaves very few if any lumps. Very pleased.Goes Well With:Milk or water - just shake well.
Chocolate flavor is my favorite, I found after just weeks of using this a noticeable different in my appearance. Its great value and very easy to consume on a daily basis. Always fast delivery and great service would recommend to many of my friends who train. Goes Well With:Full fat milk
