This epic weight gain shake is targeted for even the most hardcore of hard gainers. Critical Mass 2700 by Applied Nutrition is unlike its other competitors whereby the extreme high calorie content will simply add lbs of bodyfat and little muscle. Critical mass adds good quality muscle mass whilst keeping bodyfat accumulation low, ensuring you gain strength and lean size.
A colossal 900+kcal per shake with 50+g protein and in excess of 150g of carbs taken multiple times throughout the day each day will certainly add weight to you. The trick to weight gain is to bombard your body with excess calories so your body retains the extra energy and utilises it for muscle growth. By using a weight gain supplement such as critical mass you are providing your body with superior nutrient sources making muscle hypertrophy easier.
A blend of fast acting whey proteins and slow releasing proteins such as egg albumin critical mass is ideal post workout for a quick hit of amino acids (including added L-glutamine for improved recovery), but also an ideal sustained release shake in between meals.
The carbohydrates in critical mass follow the same concept of applied nutrition's protein blend, a mix of fast acting sugars and lower GI carbohydrates for the best of both worlds. Additional healthy fats are included such as CLA, flax oil and MCT's to ensure optimal hormone levels as well as maintaining a low bodyfat level during your bulking up phase.
Critical mass 2700 is a great value for money, incredibly good tasting (we suspect the key to weight gain is drinking so many shakes from the delicious taste alone) and very good quality weight gain powder. If you are serious about adding some good muscle growth during your next bulking phase this is definitely the supplement for you.
