“Hyper Gain didn’t work for me…”

It doesn’t happen often, but every once in a while someone writes to me and says something to the effect of “Hyper Gain didn’t work for me…”

Every time someone writes me and claims that they aren’t making the gains they expected with Hyper Gain, the fault is almost never with the supplement.

97% of the time the problem is one of two things:

1. They don’t lift with the intensity necessary to achieve anything close to the gains they desire.

This subject needs more attention so I will do that in a later message, but know that even if you don’t gain the mass you desire, you should be gaining strength if you are lifting with the required intensity.

If you’re not getting stronger, one of two things is happening. You’re either over training (which is definitely the exception), or you’re bringing it weak.

Plain and simple.

Unless you are one of the genetically blessed you can count on the fact that you are going to need to gain some level of affection for the pain that comes from working out if you’re going to see results.

2. They aren’t eating correctly to support muscular growth.

Most bodybuilders drastically underestimate how much food is required for mass gains (reference this post).

Here’s an important key for gaining, so listen up…

Start keeping a daily journal of what you eat and when for approximately a week. Then increase daily calories by 500 per day (mostly from protein and fat) until you start gaining.

To support the maximum possible muscular weight gain, try increasing your protein intake to 1.5 grams or 2 grams per pound of body weight.

If you’re worried about putting on too much body fat, keep the carbs to protein ratio at 1.5 or 1:1.  For example, 40-60 grams protein and 40-80 grams carbs five or six times daily.

You’ll need to eat plenty of fats, too. Flax seed oil is especially good while bulking and it won’t cause fat gain. I like to add heavy whipping cream to my protein drinks too for extra fat and calories.

Can you do this without protein or meal replacement supplements? Sure, but like I said before, I found it to be a lot easier to eat three or four solid food meals and three or four liquid meals with a high quality complete protein shake or meal replacement powder.

One of the easiest, yet most neglected ways to use protein supplements is to take them right along with your meals.

Is this too much protein at one time?

Only if you want to stay small!

Forget the myth that you should only eat thirty grams of protein at one time. You’ll never get anywhere with that kind of thinking. I think fifty grams or more per meal is the way to get big!

You’ve just learned a valuable bodybuilding secret most hard gainers don’t know. Give it a try and you’ll be surprised at how fast you start gaining.

Train Hard,

    Great article. It's been approx a month since receiving my supplies of Hyper Gain and Jacked Up. I've noticed a pretty good increase in strength etc. Bench alone has increased 10 lbs. Keep up the great work!

      Hey Ken, great to hear – thanks for sharing. I expect if you keep the intensity, based on my own experience and tons of other customer feedback, you'll see another 10-20 lb increase in the next month or so. Report back and keep us updated on your progress!

      Hey Ernest – that’s awesome, and something we always like to hear! Keep up the good work – the Hyper Gain no doubt helps, but you’re putting forth the effort, and that’s a BIG part of your progress! Keep me posted on how things progress. Rick.

    Hey Rick-

    Great article. Yeah, I’ve fallen into that category of only taking in 30-40 gms. of protein at one time, so I’ll try to ingest more and see how it does. I’ve been taking the Hyper Gain for about a couple of months now, and definitely seen more strength in my workouts, not to mention increased weight I’m lifting. What a great product.

      Hey Gary, glad to hear Hyper Gain is working for you! I should amend the post to mention that if you're going to go above 40g of protein in one meal, it's a good idea to add in a digestive enzyme to make sure you can process all of it. You can check ours out (FSDS) on the World-Class Supplements link at the top of the page.

    So true. I found that combining Wendler's 5/3/1 Boring But Big template with a gallon of milk a day for a month paired best with Hyper Gain. I gained 20 pounds of muscle and 6 pounds of fat (overall decrease in fat percentage). Hyper Gain combined with triples and singles brought my strength up in squatting, deadlifting, benching, and military pressing, and the 5 sets of 10 relatively heavy reps brought on insane hypertrophy. I've done this before without Hyper Gain and I gained about 12-15 pounds of muscle and 15 pounds of fat. I also got tired much more quickly mid-set before Hyper Gain and took longer to recover as well.
    Don't be afraid to eat big to get big!

      Hey David, that's awesome – glad to hear it! And you're right – training with the appropriate intensity and getting enough calories usually works wonders (and as you pointed out, works MORE wonders while taking Hyper Gain!)

    Hi Rick,

    I’ve been using Hyper Gain for a little over a month. I’m not getting size gains, but it’s because my goal is fast loss, have alot to loose, so I’m not eating enough to gain. My strength however, improves every workout! I’m doing your”old school” workout and easily add 5-10 pounds on my squat every time! I haven’t received my Jacked Up yet as it’s still on backorder.I’m looking forward to adding it to my regime, hopefully I’ll get it soon. Any advice on eating to shred fat and gain muscle is appreciated. Thanks for the good products.

I am going to start pushing much harder, as I love at the end of your emails,,Train Hard, i alsways thought I was, but obviously not..

    Thanks again for the wake up call.Bob P.
