    hardgainer asking for advice! supplements/finaflex

    hey!
    only new to bodybuilding.com but have been following heaps of the posts here
    i know you guys have probably seen this post hundreds of times, probably thousands!
    but I am a 20 yr old that has been training for quiet a while now and still hard to gain serious gains
    i weight 71 kgs (151 pounds) and find it hard to increase weight. Ive been at this weight for quiet a while and supplements don't seem to be helping quiet a lot. I eat clean and eat whatever i can get in my mouth.

    I recently got told by a mate to have a look at finaflex and was just seeing if you guys have taken it and what you recommend on it?
    What types of proteins do you recommend? I train 4-5 times a week and only recently (about 4-5 months ago) had a knee reconstruction so still doing a bit of rehab on my knee.

    Thanks

    Weight gains will come from eating at a caloric surplus, and thats what you need to do for your goal of putting on size/weight. If your having trouble getting those calories in you could look into getting Mass-Tech. Its a pretty well rounded gainer that will you help you get your macros in.

    What FinaFlex product are you looking at? The ones such as 1-ANDRO can't be discussed here.

    Other than that, mtownballer 20 is a smart guy. I would just suggest making your own gainer vs. a store bought one if you have the time and resources.

    ^this

    Start in the nutrition section (stickies go through calculating calorie and macro needs) and determine what your nutrition plan is. If after looking at everything you determine you need a protein supplement to help pack in extra protein and calories then I'd personally suggest getting whey that fits your budget and macro needs.

    This is what I do for getting in some extra calories and such when needed.
    The macros and calories will vary slightly depending on the specific brands or whatnot you use but a quick example of what I make usually is below. You could throw ice cream in there, olive oil, more PB, etc. This is (imo) a basic homemade shake though and for a min in the blender I'm happy to gulp down 1k calories
    16oz whole milk
    2sc whey
    1 banana (personally pref - the PB/choc/banana flavor combo you get is awesome)
    2tbsp PB
    1c oats (you may want to crush the oats into more of a powder if you don't think you'll like the consistency)
    add ice if you want a more milkshake/thicker consistency
