If it's time to start thinking about protein shakes that are going to fuel gains over the coming months, then here are a few things you'll find in the SCI-MX fridge to add to protein shakes to increase calories...

ADD QUALITY CALORIES TO PROTEIN SHAKES
Surplus calories + progressive weight training = epic muscle gains! Should you call for pizza?
Maybe once a week – but in the long-run sticking to nutritious food and adding healthy energy-dense calories to to a shake like ULTRA WHEY™ or GRS 9-HOUR® PROTEIN is the ticket to quality training, health and lean gains.

The foods below will enable you to boost carb calories around workouts, and then opt for higher amounts of fats at other times of day – like your pre-bed shake/smoothie.....

10 top protein shake calorie boosts (approx kcals):
Oats 389kcals per 100g Banana 90kcals Coconut oil 120kcals per tbsp Whole organic milk 60kcals per 100ml Coconut milk 150kcals per 100ml Natural nut butters (e.g. peanut, almond) 100kcals per tbsp Avocados 160kcals Greek yoghurt 100kcals per 100g Natural honey 65kcals per tbsp Cottage cheese 100kcals per 100g

EASY ALTERNATIVE – ADD A WEIGHT GAINER TO YOUR DIET

If you're like me then sometimes you'll enjoy adding ingredients to your protein shake and seeing what awesome tasting smoothies you can make to fuel your gains. However, using a really high quality all-in-one like OMNI MX® HARDCORE is the hassle-free way to power muscle growth, strength and size without necessarily having to add extras – albeit peanut butter is always a winner in the blender when bulking! One serving contains 530kcals, 45g protein, 75g carbs and 3.8g MCT oil – plus nutrients such as zinc for testosterone synthesis, creatine for training energy, glutamine, bcaa's and arginine AKG.

PIMPING YOUR PROTEIN SHAKES – HOW MANY CALORIES?

Many guys get serious mass gains when they eat 20kcals per lb of body mass – so 3400kcals if you weight 170lbs. It's a lot of food to sustain over a 3-6 month bulk-up – so stock your fridge with growth-friendly shake condiments and add them to your protein shakes or gainer.
