Champion Nutrition Heavyweight Gainer
Bodybuilding is a highly individual activity which is different for every person depending on their genetics and physique goals. In truth, the basics are almost everything in bodybuilding and everyone should start with the basics, and gradually see what works and what doesn't and go from there. Like a lot of other young men, I started out looking not so much to lose body fat, but to gain muscle mass. The way I did that over the years was by sticking with the basics - hard and heavy exercises in the gym with dumbbells and barbells, and a basic healthy diet high in calories broken down into multiple small meals over the course of the day. One way which I found was easy to get a lot of extra calories in was by using various supplement powders to go with my whole food meals. I know one bodybuilder who ate no less than one dog food sized bag of weight gain powder each week as he progressed in his bodybuilding journey! I have personally found that protein powders and weight gain powders make great small meals when coupled with a piece of fruit, and can be taken either post-workout or at any other time during the day.

Each serving of optimum 100% whey was 130 calories per 32 gram scoop. Only 15 of these calories were from fat or the equivalent of under two grams of fat per serving. Each serving was 24 grams of protein and 4 grams of carbohydrates. This is a nice ratio in favour of protein which is what everyone is obviously looking for in a protein powder. Mixing the protein powder with milk would add in some extra calories, as would eating a piece of fruit with it, to make one small but complete bodybuilding meal.
Champion Nutrition HeavyWeight Gainer 900 tastes good, but is very sweet! In fact, the first time I prepared a shake mixing it with milk I thought that it was TOO sweet. It kind of turned me off to begin with, but at the same time, the solution for that is to simply mix less powder with the same amount of milk to make for a less strong tasting shake. When mixed in the blender with other things like fruit or juice, the taste will also change drastically. My advice would be not to mix a lot of powder with not a lot of milk, or else you will have one very strong shake. I can recommend specific quantities to mix, but it really depends on how much you would like to consume at one given point. Pour as much milk or water as you would like and add the powder until you get the desired taste. That is exactly what I would do and how much powder I would use would be dependent on how many calories I was wishing to eat at that particular moment.
Champion HeavyWeight Gainer mixed well. It was a little thick when I first made a shake, before I realized how much was needed to make a shake of the consistency I wanted. I would recommend pouring the milk in first and the powder next. Also, using a blender is always a good idea, and from my experience even the hardest to mix protein and weight gain powders have always mixed well when I did so.
When I first got an interest in bodybuilding I started buying various protein and weight gain powders. I think it was about 6-12 months after beginning when I bought my first weight gain powder whereas before that I was using various protein powders. At the time, the extra calories did help me to gain weight, some of which definitely was muscle! I will say right now though that you have to be weary of how many calories you take in, regardless of quality or source. Your body can only synthesize so much protein, especially if you are training steroid free. Be sure to not go overboard on protein or weight gain powders or you run the risk of gaining fat. If you are conscious of this and use the supplement powders in moderation and responsibly, you are sure to get an extra boost in your program to help you gain some added muscle mass.
My only qualm with Champion Nutrition's HeavyWeight gainer would be the sweetness. Personally, I would rather drink plain shakes than flavoured shakes because my goal is UTILITY and not TASTE. I eat and live bodybuilding to achieve my goals, and I am not particularly concerned whether or not every supplement I take tastes like candy. That said, this, HeavyWeight gainer is a nice and convenient way to get some extra calories and I highly recommend it for bulking purposes as long as you don't forget to eat a healthy diet and train hard too! Supplements are just that - goodies to supplement an already strong bodybuilding regiment. Champion Nutrition HeavyWeight gainer costs only $29.79 for seven pounds, so it is pretty reasonably priced too. =)
