Not too long ago I shared a story of one of my best friends, Mike, who came to me asking for help on ways to gain mass with P90X. He had been trying to gain mass for years, but nothing seemed to work, and he was pretty frustrated. Mike shared a pretty funny story with me the other day, talking about the “advice” that others were giving him before he approached me, and one guy even told him that in order for him to gain mass, he would have to eat a Supersized Big Mac and french fries meal from McDonald’s every day. Right. Good call, genius! Let’s clog his arteries. For some reason, there is this HUGE misconception that if you’re looking to gain mass, it’s OK to eat whatever and how much you want! That is definitely not the case. Sure, you’re going to have to take in a TON of calories, but they have to be healthy calories. Plus, you have to take in the right supplements as well! The supplements that I have Mike using are Shakeology (as a snack) because of the vitamins and nutrients, creatine (pre-workout), Optimum Nutrition’s Serious Mass (post workout) because of the amount of calories, and whey protein (in the morning and before bed). Anyways, I already talked about how Mike gained 12 lbs of mass using P90X in another post (if you didn’t read it, check out this post about gaining mass with P90X), and I wanted to share the video that he and I created yesterday of his P90X mass gaining results!
For some reason people seem to think that there is no way you can gain mass with P90X, and well, now that theory can be thrown out the window. Mike committed himself 100% to the diet, workouts, and supplements for the entire 90 days to get the results he did, and is now a Beachbody Coach helping others get P90X mass gaining results as well.
