Product Overview

Why did we design Hard Gainer Extreme?

When striving to increase mass and size, you must be in a calorie surplus (energy intake > energy expenditure), otherwise you will be facing an uphill battle. Accomplishing this will require you to consume regular calorie-dense meals and snacks, although, this can be extremely challenging with such hectic lifestyles. Therefore, Hard Gainer Extreme is a potent blend tailored towards weight gain and muscle bulk.

How did we design Hard Gainer Extreme?

Hard Gainer Extreme is a potent blend containing four different types of proteins, including hydrolysed whey protein and calcium caseinate. On top of this, three different carbohydrates have been incorporated, including both waxy maize starch - a complex carbohydrate, and maltodextrin – a short chain carbohydrate. Complimentary flaxseeds and inulin complete the finishing touches to this extremely popular supplement.

What are the Key Benefits?

Protein – 32g of high quality protein per serving (100g – 3 scoops) will contribute to the growth, repair and maintenance of lean muscle mass.

Carbohydrates – 46g of carbohydrates per serving (100g – 3 scoops) will help fuel your workouts, replenish your glycogen stores post-exercise and support weight-gain.

Healthy fats – Flaxseeds and medium chain triglycerides are healthy fats to support a healthy balanced diet.

Calories – a staggering 382 calories per serving will help support weight-gain.

Inulin – this is a carbohydrate that good bacteria in your digestive system utilises to produce a number of nutrients which are beneficial towards human health.

Is this product for me?

Hard Gainer Extreme is a perfectly tailored supplement for anyone striving or struggling to increase size and mass. Alternatively, this product is ideal for post-recovery as it contains proteins (for repair), carbohydrates and fats (for replenishment). 

When should I consume Hard Gainer Extreme?

To reap the benefits of this product, our expert team of nutritionists recommend consuming this product first thing in the morning or immediately pre/post workout.

Please note that the labelling on this product is provided in English as a minimum. French, Italian, German, Spanish, Danish, Swedish and Finnish may also be present on a product by product basis.

Key Benefits

  • 32g of protein per serving
  • 46g of carbohydrates per serving
  • Perfectly tailored for weight gain with 382 calories per serving

Don't order this product! I have a sweet tooth, but this is just disgusting! Not only that, but when I contacted MyProtein to say it was inedible, they refused an exchange or refund. I'm very disappointed & will definitely be avoiding MyProtein from now on.

Amazing product, does what it says on the package really. Tastes good although is a bit gritty but thats easy to get past. I take it 3 times a day with creatine and protein all in one and I've been doing this for 3 weeks and my friends and family are noticing a difference! Highly recommend!

Easily mixed. Tastes pretty good. I had the smooth chocolate. I was just on protein with very little carbs but was fatigued for the day once I'd trained. I feel a lot more energetic with the added carbs & with the added calories, I find hitting my calorie intake a lot easier too.

I have been using hard gainer for almost a year now because I needed a bulky supplement to help make more gains because my diet back then wasn't big enough. The shake I make adds up to 1000 calories which was alright to neck in the morning and keeps me full for a good few hours. But now I have sorted out meal prepping and occasionally have a shake after gym if i can fit it in which is fine. Overall this shake is perfect for big breakfast and takes no time at all!

Goes Well With:

1 scoop of hardgainer: Milk, 3 eggs, heaped tablespoon of peanut butter and 100g oats ;)

I started using this product as I was finding it difficult to get enough calories in my diet to have a surplus and so aid in muscle growth. I went for the chocolate smooth and it really does just taste like a standard milkshake. The flaxseed looks odd and certainly adds a strange texture to the shake but it's easily ignored. Mixing can be a real issue from what I've heard however I use a blender to mix mine and this results in a completely lump-free drink. I imagine things are slightly different if you try to just mix it using a shaker bottle. As for results I've always been a fairly skinny guy but built up some lean muscle over time and decided to try this as a way to get bigger results from my training. I have to say along with good nutrition and putting the right work in this really has had an effect. This will not give you bigger muscles overnight but I would hope that was pretty obvious. It will however contribute to gaining muscle and when mixed with whole milk rather than water can contain between 700-800+ calories which for a shake you can pretty much down is fantastic.

Goes Well With:

Whole milk and a blender.

I have been using this for several weeks now and have tried both the chocolate smooth and banana. Firstly and most importantly are the results - I have seen both weight and muscle gains from using it. I gained an overall increase of about 4-5 pounds in the first month, which as a confirmed hard gainer is good news. Secondly taste - The choc smooth is very nice. It mixes well and remains smooth (as title suggests). Yes it is sweet but not horrendously so. The banana however takes a little getting used to. I'm a fan of banana flavoured drinks such as nesquik but found this had a slight bitter aftertaste. It also has flaxseeds or similar which give it a move rough consistency which some may find unpleasant.You get used to both taste and texture though. The banana doesn't mix quite as well as the chooc smooth either but there isn't a huge difference. Overall i'd say that this product will work for you. You may need to find your flavour but I'd recommend starting with the chocolate smooth and if you fancy a change then try another flavour. With 2.5 scoops per serving it last only about 3 weeks so its not like you are stuck with something you dont like forever.

Goes Well With:

both flavours with water or milk.

First time using this and to be fair for the price is tastes and mixes much better than my regular much more expensive brand plus it doesn't bloat me out for hours after drinking. I bought vanilla and mixed it with full milk with no problems at all, also I havnt had any stomach cramps, wind or had to run to the toilet so all good so far. I have only had a few servings so can't comment on gains just yet. Definitely switching to this over my previous thow.

I bought this because I usually have a hard time getting enough calories in my diet to actually gain weight and put on muscle mass. If you take this with the suggested amount of whole milk (700ml) you're looking at about 750-800 calories just in the shake!! I got the Cookies and Cream flavour which smells and tastes delicious, the only issue is the mixing isn't as good, I think it's because the powder is so thick, but I was swallowing lumps of Hard Gainer Extreme. Other than that, love it
