Hardgainers, Want to Build Some Muscle? Drink Russian Bear 5000.

Are you hardgainer? Do you eat as many cheeseburgers and ice cream sandwiches as you want and still gain no weight?

Well, you should do two things.

Workout less and turn to Vitol Russian Bear 5000.

As far as the workout goes, maybe you should do a Stronglifts 5x5 style workout (but only once or twice per week) and sit and play video games and sip Russian Bear 5000 all day.

Russian Bear 5000 is 2,600 calories per serving and provides 184 grams of protein and 391 grams of carbohydrates and 46 grams of medium chain triglycerides (MCT).

I wouldn't advise trying to drink the entire 5 scoop serving in one sitting but to break it up. I would start with one scoop per day and still focus on whole foods.

Vitol is an interesting company. Most of their products seem to be stuck in the eighties using ingredients like glandulars. Try them out if you are brave enough.

Other mass gainers worth trying.
