Dorian Yates Formass

Formass provides high-quality carbohydrate and protein calories to help you gain muscle mass

Description
Formass is indicated for athletes seeking to increase their daily intake of high-quality carbohydrate and protein calories in an effort to gain or preserve body weight or muscle mass and improve recovery.

Dorian Yates is a former 6x Mr. Olympia, respected around the world for his knowledge of training and nutrition. Dorian’s authentic, uncompromising personality style, and philosophies forever changed the sport of bodybuilding.

Dorian states, “Formass was developed by my scientific panel of PhDs, nutritionists and technical consultants. I supervised the entire process to make sure it helps you gain as much lean body weight as possible, as quickly as possible, and keep it on. We used the highest quality ingredients, including low-glycemic and branched-chain carbohydrates, MCTs, digestive enzymes, fibre and the Tempro cold temperature processed and diversified protein blend. I’m confident that you will never find another lean gainer that works as powerfully as Formass or that tastes as addictively delicious. The athletes I train use it every day, as do I.”

When trying to gain body weight, athletes should focus on increasing muscle mass (lean body weight) while minimizing fat gain. This requires stimulating the synthesis of both muscle protein and glycogen. A single bout of resistance exercise can lower muscle glycogen levels 30-40%. Low muscle glycogen levels can hurt performance, delay recovery and impede muscle growth. If no calories are consumed after exercise, both muscle glycogen and protein synthesis will remain depressed.

The fastest and most effective way to replenish glycogen and stimulate protein synthesis post-training is to consume high-quality carbohydrate and protein calories. Formass contains the Tempro cold processed and diversified protein blend to which we have added 5 high-quality carbohydrates including oat fibre, inulin and hydrolysates of waxy maize (rich in branched-chain carbohydrates) and potato. This combination is believed to produce longer-lasting increases in whole-body anabolism leading to greater increases in lean body weight, faster recovery and improved performance. Formass was repeatedly tested by Dorian and his scientific panel using different flavouring systems until they arrived at what he feels is the most delicious lean mass gainer you will ever use.

"Nutritionally, the quality of this gainer is excellent. It helped me get back to form quickly after 2 years without exercise. But I didn't like is the taste - there was some cheap artificial banana flavour instead of real banana powder used in Dorian Yates products 3 years ago. It was also very hard to shake - it had a lot of lumps even after 1 minute in a blender! The last thing I didn't understand is the presence of Sucralose in a gainer - using a plain sugar would be a much healthier choice, and would not increase the manufacturing costs. So the quality of DY products is going down quite fast, and hopefully Dorian will do something with it in the near future.

So, it's still a good gainer, but not a 5* product anymore."

"Ive been training 2 years and tried 20-30 different blends of powder. This is one given me the best and quickest gains, regardless of the small amount of proteins the carbs work well to counter balance. Tastes great, mixes well. By far the best supplement ive had. Even better when stacked with some creatine powder."

"Banana flavour reminds me of the foam banana sweets you can buy. Over all a very good quality product, the lack of protein per serving is a little annoying put most weight gainers are like that so I just add an extra scoop of whey to bring it up.

Q&A
Q When is the best time to take this ?? thanks
A

If this is the only supplement you are taking, then take it right after training and between meals (whatever time of day is the longest between meals). You can take it several times daily as it is not an ultra-high calorie gainer. Keep adjusting your intake until you are gaining about 1 or 2 kilos per week.

Q How does this compare with anator p-70 as a post workout product?
A

Anator is specifically a post workout product with fast carbs and fast protein (they are absorbed quickly), creatine and a big whack of leucine. You could use Formass as a post-workout (it would be better than regular food) but the protein and some of the carbs are slowly-digested and it doesn't have the added creatine or leucine.

Q Just wondering how much water, or milk do you use with this, it does not say on the tub
A

Add enough liquid (water or milk) to produce your desired consistency.  

Q is this suitable for vegetarians?
A

This product contains ingredients from milk and egg but doesn't seem to have any other animal-derived ingredients. However, we cannot guaruntee it is totally free from any animal ingredients or that it is not produced in a facility that may handle other animal-derived ingredients.

Q Hi just wondering i use the 2 full servings twice a day. Is it possible to have a half serving with breakfast as well, for some extra calories.
A

As long as you don't replace other calories and you take it 'in addition' to your breakfast, then yes, feel free to add it to your breakfast.
