    Angry Mass gainers and amino acids

    What does amino acids do when you take mass gainers? When I started working out I took mass gainers and I got good muscle and I got fat.

    Best advice I can give you, Don't ever buy either of those supplements.

    Use that money on FOOD.. GO EAT

    Idk why people think mass gainers are a magic supp that puts on size.

    Mass gainers are good, but only if you use them to hit your macros.

    No....
    calories in vs calories out
    And also protein shakes are not at all necessary.

    1. Your question is irrelevant.
    2. Stop taking mass gainers, eat real food.
    3. Save money.

    Don't take mass gainers..

    Buy ON 100% Whey and add oats and peanut butter.

    Alternate between eating meals between a workout and the protein shake.

    OR... you could eat a meal right after a workout and then 1hr-2hr later drink the protein shake/vice versa








    Main thing:
    -Don't primarily rely on protein shake..

    im starting to think people are thinking protein shakes and supplements are like steroids. or like some magic pill that turns you into hulk.

    ...maybe its because they put .mass gainer. on label.
    -bnch: 35kg
    -sqt:35kg
    -dlf:35kg

    -
    i should have bought more than 35kg brahs.

    Both of them are highly unnecessary for the average lifter. Don't worry about them.
