Product Overview

Hard Gainer Extreme | Product Overview & Benefits

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. Additionally, you need to be following a progressive, structured training program combined with appropriate rest and sleep. Accomplishing an increase in mass and size will require you to consume regular calorie-dense meals and snacks, although, this can be extremely challenging with such hectic lifestyles. Therefore, this newly formulated Hard Gainer Extreme with improved taste and texture is a potent blend tailored towards weight gain and muscle bulk.

How did we design Hard Gainer Extreme?

This new formulation now boasts 35g of fast and slowly digested proteins per 125g serving, making it perfect for rapid post-exercise recovery as well as a slow-sustained delivery of amino acids throughout the day. On top of this, three different carbohydrates have been incorporated, including both fructose and maltodextrin, to supply a staggering 61g of carbohydrates per serving; this is over 15g more than our previous formulation! Complimentary actives including creatine monohydrate, l-glutamine, MCT powder and a compelling vitamin and mineral blend have also been integrated to complete the finishing touches to this extremely popular supplement.

What are the Key Benefits?

  • Protein – 35g of high quality protein per serving (125g – 3 ½ large scoops) will contribute to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass.
  • Carbohydrates – 61g of carbohydrates per serving will help fuel your workouts, replenish your glycogen stores post-exercise and support weight-gain.
  • Calories – an astounding 446 calories per serving will help you achieve a calorie surplus each day which is the first essential step to gaining mass and size.
  • Creatine – 5g per serving will help enhance performance in successive bursts of short-term, high intensity exercise, such as weightlifting.
  • L-Glutamine – supplementing this (particularly post-workout) can help to restore amino acid levels that are diminished during your workout. Restoring these will provide a fundamental building block for new proteins to be manufactured to help with recovery.
  • Flavours – take your pick between 6 tantalising flavours (Chocolate Smooth, Vanilla, Strawberry, Banana, Choc Mint, Cookies and Cream) or our popular unflavoured option.

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) and vitamins and minerals (for health and vitality).

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, Hungarian and Finnish may also be present on a product by product basis.

Usually take my macros through food, however bought this max gainer to help boost my daily calorie intake on busy days at work or at the weekends where I may not take in all my meals. It's great for use with half or 1 whole scoop however anymore seems to leave me slightly bloated or makes me feel podgy the next day. Taste is nice however had a really sugary taste compared to normal protein powders. All in all a good product, however make sure you make good use of the excess calories!

I bought this a long side a standard protein shake and the build muscle bundle. I have a standard whey mixed with oats for breakfast and mid-day and maybe later on. I take this Hard Gainer straight after my workout mixed with water. The taste is amazing and mixes really well! I'm trying to bulk at the moment and this is pact with clean calories and a huge 35g of protein. I bought it on offer aswell so I'll defiantly be buying this shake again when I run out. A long side the build muscle bundle I'm already seeing a progress in my size and training. As I am bulking I do feel a bit bloated after all the calories which I suppose is normal but even when I begin to cut I think I'll still fit this into my diet for the nutrients alone!

I have been using this product for 6 months now and it was my favourite weight gainer I've found. I have celiac disease and unfortunately I can no longer have this as MP have changed the flaxseed flour ingredient to oatflour. This is really disappointing as this is a great weight gainer, I hope MP change their minds about this ingredient alteration.

I've had this a few months in a row now- for me its a great breakfast replacement as it is filling, high in protein and carbs and low in sugar. I tend to mix it with ground porridge oats and milk to increase carb intake. Keeps me going after early morning gym for a good few hours. I cant stomach food before gym and go straight to my work after which means its hard to eat a proper breakfast. I have however noticed that you have brought out a version 2 which seems basically the same however lower in protein per 100g- seems a bit cheeky as your serving suggestion has gone from 2.5 scoops up to 3.5 scoops meaning a 5kg bag now gives 40 servings as apposed to 50 before. Still it is a reasonably prices product and prob the best tasting i have had. Over all i would recommend this

Only just started using this but in the 2 weeks I have, I have seen decent improvements to my energy levels and strength. I wouldn't think I have been using it long enough to see any significant gains yet but the best thing about it is the flavour! I love the strawberry flavour, just mixed with water it is the best tasting shake I have ever had and have tried a lot over the years. Could mix slightly better but i find if I put a little water in the shaker first that does the trick.

Yeah the product is excellent!! Really does help put on the muscle and size .. but I bought cookies and creams flavour and I must admit it's the most vile flavour I've ever had .. plus the when you mix it, it doesn't mix fully so you end up wasting a lot of it at the bottom of the bottle

Recently order some more of this to find they've changed the formula. Now has less calories per 100g so more is needed for a serving, more sugar per serving, different taste completely (compared to old version) and is really difficult to clean off of shakers. New version is much sweeter than before, which I don't like, and less servings per container means I'll be finding an alternative once I've used it all up.

Definately helps build muscle, however has caused me to break out in acne, so I would recomend purchasing a non-dairy protein powder if you want to avoid this, which i will be doing in future

Bought this to help me bulk out a bit, and so far its definately helping. Went with the chocolate smooth flavour which is really really nice. Mixes up very well in a shaker so no need to use a blender. This is going to be a staple product for me now. Would reccommend to anyone.

Great product, i have been using this for 6 months + now. Great service from myprotein, very reasonable price, fast delivery. I will only use choc smooth, tastes great, a lot of reviews say it doesn't mix well which is absolute rubbish in my opinion. I mix 3 scoops with 500ml of whole milk, give it a quick shake and its perfect. People also need to remember that this is a supplement and should not be used to replace proper whole food. I usually have one shake when i wake up, one straight after training in the afternoon and sometimes one before i go to sleep.
