Most of the kids who come to the gym disappoint, looking for a way how to do it as quickly as possible. And the first thing that comes to mind is to buy sports nutrition, but as a rule, they do not understand what sportpit good value for money (work), and a better pass by. In this article, we will talk specifically about Gainer, namely touch on issues such as: Gainer – what is it? What is the gainer? Who needs it? and How much?
Gainer – a high-calorie nutritional supplement, which is a mixture of carbohydrates and proteins (as well, there may be added: creatine, vitamins, and other additives). It allows you to increase the total caloric content of your daily diet.
Typically, this mixture consists of a high quality purified proteins and carbohydrates (if it is an expensive and high-quality gainer) which extend from natural foods. Usually gainer consists of 70 – 90% of carbohydrates (this is its main feature), with the bulk of these carbohydrates, it is – complex carbohydrates (but there is also such that the composition of simple carbohydrates more than the complex). The remaining 10 – 30% consists of proteins (usually multi-component), fats, vitamins, creatine and other (in general, can be added to anything).
What is the gainer?
The main objective gainer it – a quick set of muscle mass and instant recovery of lost energy. Also, it has the advantage that it is useful in the preparation, storage and use (for example, is perfect for people who because of the work can not keep 6 meals a day, you can take it with you and drink between meals ).
There are people who are very ill gain muscle mass (ectomorphs). And so, to build muscles, their diet should be a lot of calories and a lot of calories, it is – a lot of food. But the problem is that is usually very difficult to absorb the necessary (large) amount of food and then comes to the aid of high-calorie carbohydrate – protein mixture.
Also, there is another type of people who easily gain both fat and muscle (endomorphs). For this type of people gainer – not recommended. Why? Because the bulk of the carbohydrates will be used in the fat cells, but not in the right direction (muscle energy).
As this mixture of high-calorie, we can conclude that weight gainer for ectomorphs will be just in time as he endomorphs – contraindicated (not something that can not be straight, but I would not recommend). Also, it is perfect for athletes who are subjected to heavy loads and long aerobic character (boxers, football players, basketball players, wrestlers, etc.). Drunk carbohydrate – protein mixture before exercise will allow you to train more efficiently.
If we talk specifically about the athletes who deliberately gaining muscle (bodybuilders), then the gainer can specifically help them in fast massonabore. Simply add 2 – 3 portions of the mixture into your diet, and within a week of your weight increase more than usual. The best time to take this mixture, this morning (soon after awakening), between meals (during the day), before training (which would increase efficiency) and after exercise (that would instantly restore lost energy). The worst time to receive it – before going to bed, because during sleep our body is least in need of such number of calories (and for endomorphs it will be a breakthrough in the general set zhiromassy).
How much is the gainer?
This product price, there are completely different. It all depends on the quality, composition and firm. The less protein, so it is cheaper. The steeper the firm, the more expensive it is. According to my observations, the average price (on a solid quality chetverochku) ranges from 14 to 18 dollars per 1 kg (if you take a lot of bulk or large packs of 6 kg, it is cheaper). I do not recommend taking a mixture of very cheap, since there is no good (very good chance that you can spend the day without getting off the toilet).
Let us again briefly go over the major issues:
№1) Gainer – what is it?
High-calorie nutritional supplement, which is a mixture of carbohydrates and proteins.
№2) What is the gainer?
The main problem – a quick set of muscle mass and instant recovery of lost energy.
№3) Who is it for?
Great lean ectomorph, bodybuilders and athletes who are exposed to prolonged stress of aerobic character.
№4) What is the cost?
The average price (on a solid quality chetverochku) ranges from 14 to 18 dollars per 1 kg (if you take a lot of bulk or large packs of 6 kg, it is cheaper).
PS You do not have to buy a carbohydrate – protein mixture in stores. They can be made at home from natural foods. How to cook at home – see below (where written other articles on the topic).
