Recommended Posts

Friends of KrachtForum

I have a question regarding the use of bodybuilding supplements! please guide me.


To improve the muscle recovery process in an intense training program, is it better to use Mass Gainer supplements or Whey Protein powders?

Mass gainers are Carb heavy products (read: sugar!) that help you to gain weight, combined with a lower amount of proteins.

Whey powders are 80% proteins, without added sugar.


I'm not  a fan of gainers, are there are much healthier options to gain weight.

When I say something, I always have something to back up my claim.

They are available, indeed very true!  I could have been a little more clear on that. 
Thank you for correcting me so nicely 9_9

All of the gainers have this label


Doesn't sound particularly great to my ears either.


Some labels of regular weight gainers.





I stand by my claim; there are much healthier options to gain weight. Also in your case. Like it or not.


EDIT: to be clear(er); a quick intake of high carbs or sugars cause an insuline spike, which you want to prevent if possible. Shakes cause enough spiking as it is and you don't want to overdo it.
and to OP:  i again forgot to mention that, Whey indeed is the best option for muscle recovery. #oops!

In my honest opinion:
Don't spend the money on it.

Because whole food, like potatoes and a piece of red meat or fish with a side of veggies will ALWAYS be better.
In calories, but also in ways of micronutrients!

    • En de nachten ook😴 haha Gefeliciteerd man!  
    • Wat scato al zegt probeer te kijken naar een upper lower split 4x per week. Verder is 4 oefeningen met elk 4 setjes teveel voor 1 spiergroep. Meer dan 12 setjes per workout is volgens diverse studies (zeker voor natty's) teveel en wordt ook wel junkvolume genoemd. Even een kanttekening: 4 oefeningen voor rug en benen is prima omdat dit een spiergroep is die uit meerdere spieren bestaat (kuiten,hamstring,quads bijvoorbeeld). Ik doel echt op 4 oefeningen voor bijvoorbeeld de borst is overkill en als je 16 setjes voor borst kan doen vraag ik me toch echt af met wat voor intensiteit je traint.   Kort voorbeeld schema voor upper/lower split   Upper 1: Pulls ups 1 rep van failure af bench press 6-10 reps Bent over rows 6-10 reps Machine chest press 10-15 reps Dumbell side raises 15-20 reps Tricep oefening   Upper 2 Incline bench press 10-15 V bar lat pulldown 12-15 Seated cable rows 12-15 Cable flyes 15-20 Cable side raises paused 15-20 Tricep oefening    Lower 1 Squats 6-8 Leg press 10-15 Lying leg curls 12-15 Calves oefening Glutes oefening Bicep oefening   Lower 2 Romanian deadlifts 6-10 Hack squats 12-15 Seated leg curls 12-15 Leg extensions 15-20 Kuit oefening Bicep oefening
