OK - so some background information first:
I started this year at around 145, 7.5% bf, 5’6". I’ve been eating everything I can find to try and gain some mass, and so far I’m up to just under 160, not too sure of the bf, but assumed still in the single digits. Talked to my friend at the gym today, he goes about 205, and he suggested some mass gainer stuff from GNC.
I’ve always been kinda leary of those, because it seems like a lot of filler, with junk carbs and other garbage in it. But in the case of just trying to get enough calories, does anybody have an opinion? If you like the mass gainers, thoughts on a brand or anything?? I currently am taking optimum nutrition gold standard whey and some GNC PM protein, and creatine and fishoil. Trying to gain on a clean bulk is admittedly very difficult, so I’ve conceded to eating some junk. Just started on a rippetoe program today, too.
Thanks in advance for your thoughts, guys
