Horleys Awesome Mass Review
What You Should Know
Horleys Awesome Mass is a weight gainer, which means the average dieter should steer clear of this supplement. Weight gainers are used by bodybuilders during the building phase of competition. Typically, weight gainers or mass gainers contain high calorie contents, tons of sugar and protein. The idea is to feed the body excessive amounts of calories to promote muscle growth. The calories come as carbohydrates and protein. Carbohydrates act as the transportation system for protein, moving it to the muscle faster.

In the market of mass gainers, Horleys Awesome Mass leaves much to be desired. One serving supplies just 300 calories, 26 grams of protein and 3 grams of creatine monohydrate. The creatine monohydrate is lower than the bodybuilder would typically take to maintain loaded creatine levels and the calorie content is lower than you typically find in a mass gainer. The bodybuilder could choose to take a double or triple serving, but that would increase creatine levels beyond necessary levels – so there is an issue with taking in enough calories and creatine at the same time.
First, let’s take a look at creatine monohydrate. After the loading phase when bodybuilders take high doses of creatine to flood the muscle with the supplement, there is a maintenance intake of about 5 grams. Some bodybuilders prefer to take a little more, but this is a good average intake. Horleys Awesome Mass contains just 3 grams, 2 grams shy of average. To increase creatine levels the bodybuilder could take more Horleys Awesome Mass, but only one additional serving.
Taking one additional serving of the mass gainer boosts calorie intake to 600 calories. That is slightly better, but we’ve reviewed supplements that contained in excess of 1,000 calories per shake. Some bodybuilders may be happy with the lower calorie content and others may think the calorie total is too low.
- All of the ingredients found in Horleys Awesome Mass are listed online.
- The mass gainer contains creatine monohydrate and carbohydrates.
- There may be too little creatine monohydrate and calories per serving.
Horleys Awesome Mass is a mass gainer and as such, we expected to see 800 to 1,000 calories per serving. We are not sold on adding the creatine monohydrate to the formula as bodybuilders tend to be more interested in keeping mass gainers separate from other supplements.
