    Betancourt Lean Gainz log

    BB2K got me a giant tub of the chocolate brownie Lean Gainz so I'm gonna share my thoughts as I work my way through the tub.

    My initial thought is that I'm wondering if I'm going to get sick of the flavor. It's not bad after a few servings, but a full tub is different. We'll see.

    The nutrition facts are pretty flawless. I'm not real familiar with Lean Gainers so I don't have much to compare it to but I know that if I had this stuff when I was in HS and College, it would have been a game changer for my success in my sports. As a kid, my mass gainer shakes were pretty much McDonald's milk shakes.

    The chocolate is pretty rich and strong. I've been using almond milk for my first few shakes and I typically use the magic bullet to mix it.

    Let's see where this takes me. I'll be paying close attention to my energy levels from these extra calories and carbs. This should be a good last push to get some extra mass before it's speedo season.

    If anyone else out there has tried Lean Gainz feel free to drop your thoughts and we can discuss different aspects of it.

    I'll get more specific and detailed with upcoming posts.

    I used one scoop with almond milk yesterday post work. I knew I was going to be having a healthy hearty dinner not too long after or else I would pushed it to two scoops.

    I added a little PB powder just for fun.

    I have PB powder too. I've used two scoops a day so far. How's the PB affect the taste?

    I didn't notice a huge difference in taste with the amount of PB powder I used. It still has the sharp taste of rich chocolate with just a slight pb hint. I imagine with two scoops of gainz, you'd have to add quite a bit of PB to get the flavor to show up.

    I might try to mix it up even more and pancakes with it. I bet it keeps it's flavor huge even with baking.

    BB2k, have you done much baking with the Lean Gainz?

    I had great energy today when I did my cardio session (no weights today). I'm in a goofy place right now. I'm trying to bulk up and get big and strong, but I can't stand having a gut. The Lean Gainz seem to be giving me quality energy for my cardio. I don't want to be too counter productive and try to lose the good mass I'm putting on with my healthy diet and extra calories from the Lean Gainz.

    Yesterday after school my kids were starving and I couldn't find them anything to eat so I mixed them a little bit of my Lean Gainz with milk and they loved it. They called it Daddy's Muscle Drink.

    Yeah I agree. Mine are probably a few years away from really needed or benefitting from any supplementation, but they're tall and skinny like my wife's family, so sometimes I sneak in a little extra protein into their diet.


    Looking forward to getting home from work today and making a gainz shake. I'll probably throw a banana in the magic bullet just for fun. Mix up the flavoring here and there. I still haven't made the pancakes I mentioned but I will.

    I'll be hitting some arms tonight so it should be fun. Arms and cardio. My cardio has been really strong lately. I usually just walk at an incline on the treadmill for 15-20 minutes but with these extra carbs and cals, I've been jogging more lately. I'm not known for my intense cardio sessions but I'm getting there.

    My workouts have been solid since starting with Lean Gainz. No major breakthroughs but strong daily sessions. I'm finishing up at work now. I'm gonna go home and fix myself a shake and try to figure out what my Cavs did in free agency today. I heard they totally blew up their roster.

    I switched to water for my lean gainz shakes and I don't notice a huge difference. It's still good just a little sharper and less creamy. I would say I prefer mixing it with almond milk but water isn't bad at all.

    I had a great chest session lastnight. I did my cardio before lifting and I still had a strong workout. Feeling a little tight/sore today but nothing major.

    Arms tonight.

    It would probably make a big difference in a blenderball bottle VS a blender

    Hey Necro... Are you noticing some watery mouth a while after drinking a Lean Gainz shake? I'm not sure if that's why my mouth has been watering so much later but it's the only thing I can think that I've added to my diet lately.

    Not that I've noticed. I am doing mine completely different than you though.

    I feel like I'm really starting to notice a difference with my lifting and cardio after being on Lean Gainz for a while. It's actually been very motivating and rejuvenating. My workouts were starting to lose luster and now I feel like I am hitting in much harder and longer. Probably due to the extra carbs and cals. The last few workouts I've added a set to most of my motions. And today while we were shooting hoops with the kids, my wife mentioned that my arms and shoulder look bigger lately. Sometimes it's hard to notice on yourself.
