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).

Good product but had cancelled this one as if already ordered 2 . Have ended up keeping as returns label never arrived.
I found it mixed well, the taste was good and easy to drink. Goes Well With:I preferred with milk.
Excellent all round, affordable, tastes great and easy to mix.
The powder does take a bit of mixing, flavour is good and easy to drink. Managed to put on a couple of pounds in two weeks, need to see what i can achieve and how long the gains last.Goes Well With:BCAA
this protein shakes are the best I have had and I have tried a lot from many companies. they taste great and mix very easily, they are also very effective I have seen massive changes in my body since using them. I would highly recommend these to anyone.Goes Well With:any meal or snack, or just on its own!
Started this to get my weight up for navy recruitment between the use off this product and hard training I ve gained the pounds required and managed to keep it on something I ve struggled with always willing to try something new but complain this made me gain :)Goes Well With:Whole milk :)
Product mixes well, tastes well and mixes good! I've had better Weight gainers and all-in-ones, but not at this price. Would recommend!Goes Well With:Oats
The best whey protein, very tasteful, very easy to mix and to drink. I'm so glad with this purchase.
Product is ok. Usually just use MP total protein which I love but needed the extra calories so thought i'd try herd gainer extreme. Ordered the chocolate mint flavour. Tastes good but is VERY sweet. I can't chug it down like I could before. It's quite thick when mixed. Mixes OK but theres still small lumps I would buy again but will prob go back to total protein as I prefer it.
Used this now for a couple of months and can't complain at all.Only long term use will tell but I am happy with the quality and mix ability. Purchase on a deal and it's very good value.Goes Well With:Bcaa .cla.
I have been using it for about 2 weeks. I haven't seen any noticeable gains, however it's very hard for me to add up weight as I'm naturally quite skinny. I was very surprised from the texture and taste of the shake. It mixed extremely well with milk and the texture was as smooth as your normal protein shake (only tasting better). I would recommend this product to anyone looking for an affordable and pleasant weight gainer (I'll be buying more of this for sure).Goes Well With:Milk
Husband started using this last week. Is diabetic and when very busy at work and at home loses weight which he doesn't need to do. We had tried all the usual by eating Brazil Nuts and Advocados. Had one glass of this per night for a week. We mixed it in whole fat milk but cut the amount of milk down. We do use a Kitchen Aid blender and it mixes very well without any bits. He has put on 1 kilo in a week. Very pleased indeed. Why is there no age range below for over 54 - do you think we are all past it at that age ?? Lol.
Bought this last night along with Whey Protein, i tried this drink first with water and shook for around two minutes. I have the vanilla flavor and it tastes okay, the only problem i have is that there are lot's of grainy bit's in the drink and if you leave it for a while there becomes a top layer and a bottom layer. Like salt water and fresh water. I have just tried Whey Protein with Milk instead of water and it taste's the same but no bit's. I would say buy the whey protein and just eat more lol. Not sure how this product will mix with milk but i can still imagine there will be grainy bit's like sand.Goes Well With:Milk, it can't be worse than water
Not been using this product for very long, but good first impressions. I am looking for lean gains and the 400Kcal shake is perfect to increase my calorie intake with quality macros. I take this post workout and its very easy drinking. It takes a bit of effort to get a smooth mix, but overall its not too much effort. I chose strawberry and it is rather sweet with a lingering taste but I see this as a positive, as it means I don't crave sweet stuff later in the day. I take this in conjunction with Impact whey (Pre workout) and mix with Creapure powder and BCAA's. For the price, you can't really go wrong!
If you're like me, and you need to eat a lot of calories a day to get dem gainz but you don't have the time/effort to eat your macros/calories then this product is great (as well as your meals, not instead of) Tried it late last year, got a 2.5kg bag and took it over the space of 2 months. But I forgot to go to the gym, so I ended up getting a bit chubby. So don't do that. BUT since then I have started taking it again while doing heavy weightlifting sessions 5 times a week. Coupled with a bit of cardio at the weekend this is great, ive managed to put on some decent muscle while keeping my bodyfat low still. Strawberry is a bit too sweet. If you want to bump up the calories even more, add some peanut butter into it, its great. Goes Well With:Water, Milk, Peanut butter!
The chocolate smooth flavour tastes great and I have found it usually mixes quite well. The strawberry flavour was a little bit too sweet and generally doesn't taste as nice. Been using this product for around a month so it's hard to tell how effective it will be in the long run, but for the taste and price it seems worth it so far.Goes Well With:Water or Milk
Very pleased with my purchase, delivered on time! Can't fault you guys.
This product is great for putting on some gains fast, pouch last about a month and after that that time I had gain about 2kg Goes Well With:Milk and water
Great product good results gave me a boost in calories to help me pack on some mass
This product is great, highly recommend anyone wishing to put on body weight and mass. The best shake I have ever brought.Goes Well With:Full fat milk
Bought this to partner the BCAA 1500 tablets. Quite easy to mix, and the taste is not too bad at all. I'm hoping for results, but due to my age (65), I'm sure they'll be much slower to show than on a younger person. Delivery was very quick, so will definitely use My Protein again when I need more supplements.
At 400cal a pop, it does the trick. I would recommend it with milk though because it doesn't taste good with water. Even with the milk, you only want to use no more than 300ml and shake well!Goes Well With:<300ml of milk
If you struggle to get your calories in, then this product is definitely for you. I always found it tough to get the calories I needed to gain weight. I then decided to buy this product and now I can just have a shake sometime in the day and then I easily hit my macros. Best for people who can't hit macros if you can get them with proper food then this isn't for you. I got the choc smooth flavour, very nice quite sweet but still good/ Goes Well With:Milk, Water
Nice substance and heav, giving you the feel as you were already having a lot of mass !
Cookies & Cream is one of the better tasting flavours. Take after eating. Works a treat
This supplement is a fantastic all rounder: tastes good and not too sweet, mixes reasonably well and I find it also helps my recovery when taken post gym. The price makes it a value buy. In spite of the fact that I only take when I train, it helps me to maintain my muscle mass. I would recommend this product.Goes Well With:Water.
Worked well put on mass quickly without a lot of fat tastes was good had so many worst tastes over the years highly recommended
Great standard protein- good value for money
It tastes ok (chocolate smooth), it mixes questionably, and is great value for money.Goes Well With:A banana, and an ugly Betty box set.
Nice taste, but not good to mix. Many Pieces of powder left.
Great product, really nice taste/flavour (chocolate smooth) mixes well in shaker. I use it 2-3 times a day with whole or gold top milk mainly for the extra calories as I struggle to maintain and gain weight. In the mornings I put a teaspoon of instant coffee into a cup and dissolve with a little hot water then add it to my shake, evens out the sweetness. Goes Well With:Milk and a little coffee
I bought this as I struggle to gain weight and recover after a workout but since using this I've gain 9 pounds in a month and a half. Adds calories while also building lean mass, does not bloat. The mint chocolate flavour is really good and triple chocolate is a bit sickly. Can really see the effects of this product as an early stage Goes Well With:Milk and bcaa
Very good protein powder, tastes really well and shows gains over time. Would recommend this to anyone else trying to build lean mass.
Really nice will have it again Goes Well With:Need gain
Is so nice , mixes easily , doesn't bloat to much either will be buying again
Overall good product, it mixes very well with a good shaker. The taste is quite intense to start with but after a few shakes you get used to it. Goes Well With:Weight training
Bought this item to put on the extra calories as well as repair after workout, this has been very effective and would defiantly recommend it. Can be used for calories, repair or mass!
Great value for money taste is good, got the banana flavour for a change and its really taste, no bloat from this happy so far have only been using just over a week.
Really good taste, mixes pretty well when shaken, amazing value plus is really good if wanting mass and size, would recommendGoes Well With:Water, good with milk, good with a protein cookie
I've been using this for nearly 2 months to supplement my breakfast. I also add it to casein at night. it's great for mass gain and getting those extra calories. the chocolate smooth tastes very good and mixes pretty well. overall, I'm really happy with this product and will be ordering it regularly.Goes Well With:water, rice milk, almond milk
It tastes fine, mixes good and does the job. I just think there could be alot more calories added to this as you see the others on the market with a much bigger calorie count. I just see it as almost a standard protein shake not really a weight gainer.Goes Well With:double cream, oats, banana, ice cream etc.
Tastes really good and really smooth compared to some other brands which can be grainyGoes Well With:Milk/water
I have used other protein powders before from other companies but so far they don't match to your product. I found that this protein powder mixes much better than the others I have had before, it tastes really good and along side my own meal plan it's fitted in really well. I've noticed good improvements since using this product and am very excited to carry on using it and trying out new products with MYprotein as I have been really impressed with the product.Goes Well With:Natural Greek yogurt and milk, I also add oats to my shakes.
Overall a pretty decent weight gainer. Taste is very similar to other weight gainers I've used in the past and it mixes well. A very good addition in my opinion when striving to get decent quality Cals into my diet. It's certainly not the highest cal per serving compared to others I've looked at but then I've noticed the others are packed with loads of other additional ingredients. Protein is of an average amount seen with other similar products. Will definitely use this again.
Really greattach tasting gainer! Using chocolate mint. The price is brilliant for 5kg! When you think how much you'll spend in a high street stores probably double! Taste great, mixes well!
Excellent product that tastes great and mixes easy. I have been using this for 2 weeks so its difficult to see the results.
Great way to keep up with my calorie count
I've had hardgainer in strawberry and vanilla before. Banana best I've tried. I've found it to mix very well, and the taste is actually very nice. I found that the other two became a bit sickening towards the end, but banana certainly easier to take.Goes Well With:Milk Water
It s the best gainer, in my opinion , tried a lot of them, but this is my favorite one, blends really good, and the taste is amazing! Goes Well With:Milk
I have put on 7-8lbs in a week using both hard gainer extreme along with creatine. I work out hard and I eat and drink this stuff,so have seen good results. I would and have recommended this supplement, however I find the strawberry flavour I have is slightly too sweet. Apart from this, its a great productGoes Well With:Banana, Honey, Peanut butter and Milk Smoothy
