im 5'11 210 lbs and looking to gain a bit more muscle so im going on a one month pyramid bulking program. is a mass gainer essential for better results? i haveand planned on using that but i=i would just like a second opinion. thanks!
No, mass gainers just make it easy to get what you really need to grow. Calories. You don't need the weight gainer at all if you eat enough. That doesn't mean anything and everything. It means enough of the right things. Good Luck sir
Also plenty of ways to up your cals in Myofusion
Add banana, natty peanut butter, ground oats
Ive always liked making my own weight gainer, that way i can control the macro's and caloric values based on my current diet.
I would start off with 2 scoops Protein and a 1 or so cups of Oats grounded up, from there you can either add water or milk, you can add peanut butter for good fats and banana for a bit quicker carbs aswell. Very versatile thats why i liked it soo much.
whey protein, oats, EVOO and natty PB are your friend
ADVANCED MUSCLE SCIENCE STRONGEST ON THE MARKET
thank you everybody! i will start making my own shakes with my myofusion then! another question, when bulking how can i avoid excess fat from being stored in my midsection? i dont have a lean midsection at all and wouldnt want to make it any worse by bulking. after this month of bulking im going on a 8-10 week cutting cycle btw! thanks
Look into calorie/carbohydrate cycling (yes, it can be done for a bulk, albeit not often for a traditional bulk). If you're bulking you can expect to add some bodyfat - where it goes is individual-dependent - so don't stress it (you can take of off easily enough afterwards).
If it's that much of an issue, consider trying to recomping instead (monitoring nutrition is essential here).
