What You Should Know
Most dieters have no idea what the term “hard gainer” means, but bodybuilders suffering from the condition are all too familiar with the term. Hard gainers are bodybuilders that cannot gain weight. No matter how many calories they consume or how much they workout, they cannot gain weight or mass, making it extremely frustrating to keep going in a sport that requires size, mass and bulk. Infinite Mass by Infinite Labs is a hard gainer protein shake. According to the product description, this protein powder will help even the hardest gainer add muscle mass and bulk. There are a lot of ingredients in the formula and thus the serving size is huge. One container is more than six pounds and contains only 20 servings.
Dieters do not have any trouble gaining weight. This supplement is designed for weight gain, not weight loss. There are no vitamins in the formula so it cannot be used as a meal replacement shake.

The ingredient list for Infinite Mass is typical. It contains branched chain amino acids to support muscle growth, carbohydrates to replenish energy stores and protein to fuel muscle growth and recovery. But, we see what the company is trying to do with a few of the added ingredients and ingredient ratios.
One serving of Infinite Mass contains 50 grams of protein and 71 grams of carbohydrates. This is where the bulk of the calories come from, but it is not the calories that matter most. Infinite Mass contains 5 grams of glutamine. Glutamine protects muscles from breaking down during long workouts. Glutamine is used as a fuel source. When glutamine stores are depleted, the body breaks down muscle fibers for fuel. This causes muscle loss, loss of mass and weight loss.
- Infinite Mass contains all the ingredients the bodybuilder needs to promote weight and muscle gain.
- Glutamine protects muscles from breaking down.
- This supplement will cause weight gain.
- Does not contain vitamins and nutrients.
Hard gainers are constantly looking for just the right combination of ingredients to prevent muscle loss and promote weight gain. Infinite Mass may work for some bodybuilders, but the calorie total is a bit lacking for the hardest of gainers. It is not uncommon for a hard gainer to consume more than 10,000 calories a day and that would take a lot of Infinite Mass.
