Why Did I Choose Mass Gainer?

I am an Economics graduate and for my leisure time, I have recently joined a golf club. Within a week or so, I made 2 amazing friends who were pretty cool to hang out with.

One day we all decided to head out for lunch, post our golf session. While we had just started having our lunch, amidst our conversation, one of my friends, commenting something not very good about my physique.

It was about how my build was, about how skinny I looked. He also said how I ate but never gained an inch and called me lanky and what nowt. I felt that there was nothing to joke about when it comes to a person’s physique or appearance.

He had no idea that I was always conscious about how I looked since childhood. To make fun of something I am sentimental about, was not funny at all.

This continued for a few more weeks. now and then he used to mock me by making sly remarks regarding my physique. One day he called me rawboned and for the first time, I decided to take a stand.

Over lunch one day, he tried to do it yet again. Right when he had just started calling me out comparing me to a matchstick, I banged my hands on the lunch table and left the venue in utmost anger and sadness.

That was the day I got my golf club membership canceled so I do not get to meet that person for the play or even for lunch. I made up my mind to change how I looked and it was time for leveling up.

The first thing that I did was I got myself enrolled in the gym. I even hired a personal trainer as I wanted proper guidance. He could guide me through my transformation journey from being a slim-jim to a cock-diesel.

I was pretty darn serious about changing my physique and building up some real muscle mass.

My day 1 at the gym went fairly well as working out under the guidance of a personal trainer has its perks. I did a few upper body exercises followed up by stretching and cooldown.

I asked my trainer about how I could put on muscle mass and gain strength so he advised me that I should start taking strength training seriously and that I should also start consuming proper meals.

According to him, I should immediately involve high protein foods and high fiber foods as well.

He told me that this will not happen overnight and I should focus more on compound lifting and lesser on cardio, accompanied by a proper diet and rest days.

I followed this schedule for a month or so. Though I could feel a few changes in my strength levels, there was no evident growth of muscle mass.

Experiencing all of this, I consulted my trainer again. I asked him if he could suggest to me some other way for muscle growth as my diet and workout were on point but not optimally working in favor of my goals.

He suggested that I should try Mass Gainer, a supplement by Crazy Nutrition as it could support me in my transformation journey.

Taking his advice into consideration, I checked the supplement details on the official website, and out of two available flavors chocolate and vanilla, I ordered vanilla as I was not a fan of chocolate.

I started using Mass gainer as per the usage details given by the manufacturers on the website. Read on to find out my experience.

Experience of Using Mass Gainer

From the day I started consuming Mass Gainer, I instantly fell in love with its bomb taste. I liked the vanilla flavor, plus it never made me feel bloated after consuming it post-workout sessions.

This no bloat experience was probably because Digezyme, which according to its makers, is used as an ingredient so that it might help in digestion and may as well prevent bloating.

Another thing that I liked about Mass Gainer is that it is free from any form of fillers and its formulation is sourced with whole food sourced ingredients.

Along with its regular consumption, I incorporated compound lifts and made them a priority in the gym over cardio as I was looking for muscle gain and strength building.

I consumed wholesome meals in a calorie surplus which could help me with healthy weight gain in the form of muscles.

I made sure that I eat an adequate amount of protein that may also help me in rebuilding muscle tissues.

Also, I used to skip my breakfast on most days. But when my trainer made me realize that I was doing the wrong thing by skipping breakfast.

This is when he gave a number of articles and writes ups on healthy breakfast ideas. From the very next day, I started to be a regular at the breakfast table. This was really a surprising move for my family as well.

Having said that, my trainer structured a proper diet plan which had high-quality protein foods like chicken, eggs, salmon, cottage cheese, tofu, tempeh, lean beef, brown rice, quinoa, peanuts, etc.

He advised me to take Mass Gainer along with the structured diet and strict workout schedule and I properly followed this routine. I had to prove to myself that with proper dedication consistency and hard work, anything is possible.

Mass gainer helped me in improving my overall gymming performance and I was able to increase the weight on the barbell.

At the start of the first few weeks of its consumption, I felt energized during my workouts and even after it.

After 4 to 5 weeks, I was able to notice a decent amount of change in my strength capacity lifting weights at the gym overall helped me gain muscle size and I noticed in the mirror that my physique was finally getting better.

I can finally say that my size got increased and so were my energy levels. My shoulder and chest muscles appear bigger and fuller. I am no more the old slim jim from before I started my Mass Gainer Consumption journey.

Though I am nowhere near my ultimate transformation goal, in the future I am sure I will be if I stay consistent with my diet schedule and proper workouts.

Looking at the benefits I got from Mass Gainer, like an increase in my muscle size and strength and an increase in my energy levels with its regular consumption I am pretty sure that I will reach my desired transformation goal in near future.

  • An Increase In Strength

    With regular consumption of Mass Gainer, I was able to experience an increase in my strength which might make me strong and this could also help me stay free from any injuries aches, and pains. It does so by increasing power by providing up to 50grams of protein.

It is usually taken on a daily basis, and according to their official website, Mass Gainer can be taken before or after a workout or even between meals or might as well be consumed as a whole meal replacement shake.
