      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Not a bad product but better products on the market

      Maximuscle is a leading UK supplement company which provides customers which many different supplements depending on their goal. Progain from Maximuscle is a weight gainer which will provide the user with enough calories to put the weight they want on. With the added amount of calories this will add a bit of fat on most likely but you have to remember you can't do two things at the same time.

      Price

      On the actual Maximuscle website you will be paying £38.99 for a tub of this or they have discounts depending on the amount you actually buy. When I purchase this I pay far less than the price from Maximuscle because I wouldn't pay for it otherwise. If you can get it for less than £32 then I would class that as a good enough price.

      Nutritional Facts

      For one serving which is two scoops of the product you will be getting 453 calories which is nearly a fifth of the RDA for a man. When considering this is just from a weight gainer you should be able to get the required amount from other sources aswell. It also comes with 32grams of protein again which is a good enough amount. The amount of carbs you get in this are 68grams and even though you will hear people saying carbs are bad it totally depends on the stage your at. The amount of fat is at 10grams a serving which to be honest is pretty much expected.

      Flavours

      You can get numerous different flavours of progain which is always a good thing. The flavours you can get are Banana, Chocolate, Strawberry and Vanilla. I would personally recommend the Vanilla with this actual product, I would normally go for chocolate with any type of protein supplement but the chocolate one isn't that nice at all in my opinion. The vanilla is very simple and that is what I like about it. The only one I haven't tried is Strawberry so I can't give my opinion on that one sorry.

      Bad Points

      I have a few problems with the Maximuscle brand as a whole if I am being honest. I find that because they are always advertising their products people think they are the best brand on the market. You will find so many more brand out their which you may find work better for you as a whole.

      Overall

      Overall if you are a person who finds it quite hard to put some weight on then I would recommend a weight gainer. I am not so sure I would recommend this over things such as Optimum Nutrition Serious Mass or BSN True Mass but it depends on what you want. If you are in a store and like the look of this product then go ahead and try it otherwise have a look on websites to see if you can find other similar products with better contents and a better price.

      Hope this is helpful

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      I would do some research and find a better weight gainer, there are plety about

      Progain is a weight gain supplement by Maximuscle, who specilise in sports nutrition suppliments.

      Weight gain products are very important for people looking to put a bit of bulk and muscle on. Ask most guys who work out, and they will tell you that they want to put on some muscle and lose some fat to expose their 6-packs. Well its almost impossible to put on some lean muscle tissue, whilst at the same time lose fat. So its best to pick one goal and then go for that. Normally its easier to first of all put on some bulk, by consuming excess calories, and then cut down and cut the fat by cutting your calories.

      So we know that to build muscle, your body needs a surplus supply of caloires-so it needs a good source of protein and carbohydrates. But its often hard to consume so many extra calories during the day, without spending your whole life in the kitchen cooking meals.

      This is where weight gain shakes come in, as they are easy, quick and often cheaper than making a meal. The good thing about having a weight gain shake to is that you know exactly whats in it, and it has a high % of protein and decent carbohydrates.

      So does this box fit the bill as a decent weight gainer?

      I must admit it does tick some of the boxes, but not all im afraid, and in my honest opinion there are much better makes out there, and often even cheaper ones.

      My main problem with this is that its a mass produced suppliment, that has become so popular simpy because of all the advertising it does. Just because they have the money to advertise it, doesnt mean the product is nessicarily up to scratch. Maximuscle are a leading popular make, and you can find this product even in supermarkets and retail catalouges these days, which is why people buy it.

      One of the other problems with this is that a lot of the calories are derived form sugars, which although bumping up the caloires, will also increase how much fat you put on..not what you want when trying to put on weight. Also, it doesnt contain a good casein, wich helps the protein absorbtion into the muscle.

      Another downside is that a container doesnt last very long, and as its quite expensive, you wlle soon reaching out to buy some more.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Good quality but others just as good can be bought for cheaper

        Maximuscle progain is a weight gain supplement for those in the sporting industry who have trouble gaining weight. You may think why would you want to gain weight. Well some sports have weight categories, some people just want to put on as much muscle mass as possible.

        It is a weight gain product and not a magic drink. If you drink this without lifting weights you will gain fat weight. The nutrients in this product help feed the muscles with what it needs to recover and grow.

        I have only used this product once and never used it or thought about using it again. The taste is very average, nothing that would make you say "yum i want more of that". It is more of a task really when you want to drink it. I have had worse but there are many others out there which are better.

        The price of the product can vary widely. Never buy this ar RRP as almost any website you find this on will sell it cheaper.

        For what the product is, it is very good quality, as are all Maximuscle products. The problem is the price for me. I feel their products are a bit overpriced. Because they market their products very well, almost everyone in the sports inducstry are aware of them.

        Good quality but others just as good can be bought for cheaper.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          its ok, id recommend other products above this though

          I do a lot of weight training and I always keep an eye out for supplement with an edge which will help me achieve my goals. Ive used quite alot of the maximuscle range such as promax extreme, cyclone and progain extreme these are the ones which I use on a more regurlar basis Ive used things such as zma aswell. In this review I will share a bit of information about the product and what I think about it.

          Progain extreme: first of all I will tell you some information about it then I will tell you my experience about it. This product is britain's number one selling weight gainer for packing on muscle & size. The product is excellent for adding mass which is very useful to those who have a fast motabolism and find it hard to continuously add weight. For people who have an average motabolism its quite easy to gain fat with this product so you need to do a workout which lasts for about a good hour and intense to assure you are burning up the fat and not just storing it. I found that this product ws gd for recovery and helped me to keep a gd level of energy for my workouts throughout the week. i usually train 5 days a week and when it comes to friday my energy is usually quite low but with this product i was feeling as gd as teh start of the week.

          Key benefits:
          An easy to digest 453 calories per serving
          An excellent 32g of whey protein per serving
          No cheap protein or simple carbs
          Contains Nitrogain (a power blend of: Taurine, NAC, Glutamine peptides & Chromium) + Orotic acid
          Virtually zero lactose
          Amount Per Serving

          Per 1 serving = 120g (2 scoops)
          Energy 453 Kcal/1894kJ
          Protein 32.4g
          Carbohydrate (complex) 62.4g
          Fats 10.2g
          Phospholipids 1.8g
          MCTs 3g
          EFAs 2.4g
          Note: Virtually lactose free

          Progain extreme: I used this for about a month and found its really good for mass and muscle gain however it is very hard to get lean gains as the product is such high calorie. the product has lots of useful nutrients such as creatine etc which help in aiding muscle growth. I personally would recommend cyclon above this product as the gains are far leaner. I hope this helps anyone considering buying this product.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Would recommend to any gym goers

            was always ensure on what product to use to put on weight as well as muscle, in a healthy natural way. Im a fairly thin lad, go gym alot but only manage to put on strength, not weight and i wasnt gaining anything.

            After trying most protein shakes, bars..you name it i had it, i decided to try Maximuscle. After a month or so off hard work and taking this three times a day, i could notice the difference. Then a mate referred me to Progain Extreme. After ordering some i decided to try this instead,
            I cant say whether or not it will work for anyone else, but out of other products this one has worked for me the most.

            The only bad points i can really mention is the price, which is fairly high, and the flavour which most people tend to just push through, as to be honest it doesnt taste too nice. When mixed with milk it tastes better then the normal water
            But overall its worth a try!!

            I would definately recommend this product to any gym goers who wish to put on weight in a healthy natural way!

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              most people value price and taste beyond quality so maybe this is not a wise choice for those indivi

              Maximuscle is the largest UK manufacturer of sports supplements and so you can expect it to be of top quality. I would concur that Maximuscle products are all of top quality in terms of nutritional value and giving accurate value on the labels. However, i believe that the marketing of the Maximuscle range is over ambitious and sometimes boarding on lies in respect of what can be achieved with using their supplement range. Therefore, due to the elaborate and expensive marketing you are left with a very expensive product. But once again this is not a slant on the quality of the product. Finally, i feel that there are many great alternatives out there and much cheaper to boot.

              Foot note, i forgot to mention that the strawberry flavour tastes slightly artificial and far too sweet, however it mixed very well into a liquid consistency and is very much so drinkable.
