How to Stack | Mass


Building Mass is an art. For some of us, this takes longer to realize than others. I remember when I first started putting on weight, I assumed that to get to where I needed to be, I wanted to be, I simply would have to eat as much as possible and lift heavy weights. Within a month or so of burgers, bench and barbell curls, my physique wasn’t where I wanted it to be. I had the bulk, but it came with bloat. Flexing bloat isn’t that impressive and just because it’s no longer beach season, a holiday sweater doesn’t hide as much as you think.

Where do supplements come in to play? A well-crafted stack can provide a host of benefits to help get you where you want to be. When building Mass and Strength, this is what you’ll find in our cabinet.




Utilizing not only the most researched supplement in the world- Creatine Monohydrate, but the purest form of it on the market, you can expect to see results. With the addition of betaine, you experience increased protein synthesis through multiple pathways which can lead to skeletal muscle hypertrophy.


When to take?
Find a time where you can take it consistently. Some studies have shown benefits around your workouts and many have seen results doing so. Use on non-workout days as well. Many will take with breakfast on these days.


Should you load your creatine?
You certainly can load to supersaturate the muscle cells. Many will take 20g of creatine for about a week and then use 5g thereafter. If you load, split into 4 servings.


Do I need to cycle?
No cycling is needed.

How much protein is too much?
Think of protein like any other macronutrient. Arguably, excessive amounts can be consumed but depending on the person and activity level, you may not experience the benefits you’re looking for.
