Re: Weight gainer seems reasonable

Can't you just pre-make them in the morning and then re shake them in a shaker bottle later?

Re: Weight gainer seems reasonable

Thanks for the advice guys. I'm going to try Up Your Mass for a couple weeks post workout only and maybe in the mornings on my rest days and see how my weight goes. I don't want to gain too much too fast so ill gauge it week by week.

When do you guys drink your shakes on training days? Any time or post workout? Or does timing matter?

I drink one of them post workout and then another as my last meal before bed. On the second one I leave out the yogurt and go half banana because i don't like to feel quite as full when i go to sleep.

You could if you had a fridge to leave it in. Not always an option. It also quite possible that the pre made ones are cheaper. If it is a single meal substitute or addition I don't see a problem with it not being whole foods.

The gainer I got is 500 something calories a serving and I figure I could split the serving up half twice a day. I don't want a lot of calories coming from supplements, just enough to get me where I need to be
