Optimum Serious Mass!!!
So my gains weren't coming quick enough with the food and shakes I was consuming so I decided to start taking some Serious Mass by optimum nutrition. Anyone else here use this stuff and what do you think? I love the cals being at 1250 but this stuff is impossible to mix outside of a blender! Because of that, I doubt I will continue use after this bag is done.

best advice for u ever. dont take recommended serving
take this 2-3 times daily in smaller servings. take your normal protein scoop thing and do 2-3 scoops of that. dont use the giant 1 cup servings

I was always a big advocate of making your own weight gainer shakes if your gonna have to use a blender to mix it anyways.
Get creative, instead of water or fat free skim milk, use whole milk. Throw in some protein powder, throw in some natty peanut butter, throw in some oats, maybe use some ice cubes for a thicker consistency. Have fun with it, I always enjoy trying new weird combos in my blender.

I was in a love hate relationship with serious mass. It tastes great, atleast the chocolate does. But I started putting on the wrong kinda weight because of all the Malto. in it. Id drink 1/3 between breakfast and lunch, 1/3 postworkout, and 1/3 later at ntie. Each had an additional scoop of protein in it.
Im sensative to malto. though. I dont really like MRP's for that matter. It may work great for you. I'd dose it similar as to what I did.

check out cytogainer by cytosport. the reason i never tried serious mass is because of the massive serving size and incredible amount of sugar. dont forget when u compare the different gainers to compare the serving size. i think serious mass is about 2x that of most other gainers, hence the really high calorie count. also, cytogainer only has somewhere around 6g of sugar, which i think is a plus for a leaner gain. even with the smaller serving size of cytogainer, i only took 3/4 of a serving post workout and 3/4 of a serving before bed. it would probably be better to spread out the entire serving anyways so that ur staying out of a catabolic state(i think thats how it works). thats just my 2 cents...

I have tried several weight gainers couldnt really see any difference over the others besides tatse, and thickness, have a fast metabolism. They one I like most is MHP Up Your Mass.

It is a good protein, but I prefer their pro complex gainer (vanilla) with a big 'ol gob of peanut butter instead!
Vanilla soy milk is a plus, too! Lots of protein and good fats!
Let us know how your run in with SMass goes.
I think this is a product that scares many away simply due to it's nutritional profile. But you know what they say. The proof is in the pudding- i mean- errrr... SHAKE.

i've been through 2.5 bags of ON serious mass this summer and I divide the whole 12lb bag up into individual baggies with one scoop each when I get the bag, I use it as a PWO shake and put it into a nalgene bottle and with about 8oz of water I just shake it up and its super smooth with no lumps, I did combine it with protein powder and it would ALWAYS be lumpy, I'm on a bulk so its a super easy 600 extra cals every day and on off days I add a few cookies to the vanilla and some peanut butter and it works out to be around 850 Cals.
however I think that by itself the chocolate tastes better than the vanilla

i did a bag of this (chocolate) when i got out of the hospital and back into training. The two huge scoops it recommends is really hard and that is saying something cuz i can usually eat alot. I divided it into 2 doses. One in the begining of the day and one post workout. I used half water half milk and thru in some peanutbutter. It was good and i did gain weight with it. I thought about buying another bag but still havent. It is probably the best deal as far as quantity and quality out of all the gainers imo.

I started taking just one scoop with skim milk and in a blender the taste is amazing, and the weight gain is even better.
