When to consume Mass Gainer?
You can consume mass gainers either:
- In the morning
This will feed yourself for the day and quickly increase your calorie intake, so you don’t have to worry about obtaining enough calories during the day.
- Before Workout
If you don’t have enough energy and access to eat before your workout, go ahead and take it.
- After Workout
The ideal choice is to take your mass gainer post-workout as that is when muscles are tired and it needs a fast energy source to feed and energise them.
Carbohydrates will replace your glycogen stores, while protein will aid in muscle repair and growth.
