USN Hyperbolic Mass
USN Hyperbolic Mass is specially designed for those who are struggling to pile on the pounds and make big gains in the gym.
With a massive 53g of protein, 195g of carbohydrates and a whopping 1226 calories per six-scoop serving, this is clearly a supplement trying to live up to its hyperbolic name.
So, does achieve its objectives? After a week on Hyperbolic Mass, I feel ready to share my experiences.
Maltodextrin, Whole Milk Powder, Isolated Soya Protein, Dextrose Monohydrate, Whey Protein Concentrate, L-glycine, Creatine Monohydrate, Whey Protein Isolate, Calcium Caseinate, TruCal®, L-glutamine, Taurine, L-leucine, Magnesium Citrate, L-isoleucine, Mono-potassium Phosphate, Cholecalciferol, Avena Sativa, Ascorbic Acid, Tolerase™ L, D,L-alpha-Tocopheryl Acetate, Zinc Citrate, Nicotinamide, Calcium-D-pantothenate, Cyanocobalamin, Pyridoxine HCl, Thiamin HCl, Riboflavin, Retinyl Acetate, Folic Acid, Biotin.
USN love their proprietary blends and Hyperbolic Mass is no different. This time the supplement’s Protein Matrix contains whey protein, BCAAs and glutamic acid. For some reason, exactly how much of each ingredient is in the powder is a closely guarded industry secret.
I’m going to say it: The industry needs to move away from proprietary blends. It just does.
Okay, short rant over. What’s Hyperbolic Mass like to use regularly?
The recommended serving size is six scoops or 300g, which, amazingly mixes easily in into about one litre of liquid. I tried both water and milk and both worked fine.
For my first couple sessions, I tried to drink Hyperbolic Mass before working out. That was an ungodly, stomach-wrenching mistake. I felt unbelievably ill after just ten minutes and switched to drinking it as a post-workout shake from then on.
Taste-wise, it was okay but there’s only three options — strawberry, chocolate or vanilla. When you’re guzzling a litre of this stuff a day, any one flavour gets super dull super quick.
If I was planning on using this for any period of time, it’d probably become a problem. (I know that’s pretty subjective though so feel free to ignore this completely.)
Onto the good stuff. Hyperbolic Mass is designed to put weight on your frame even if you’ve got a metabolism that runs faster than Usain Bolt. Does it do that?
The answer is a resounding yes!
Hyperbolic Mass is packed with bucketloads of protein and enough energy to power a small town. If you’re willing to put in the time in the rack and on the platform, you will start piling on muscle. No level of metabolism is going to burn through everything in this supplement.
One of the main things to watch out for is the sugar content. With over 8.5g of sugar per scoop and over 50g per serving, you’ve got to be doing a lot of work to avoid potential unwanted fat gains.
USN Hyperbolic Mass currently costs £50.99 for a 2kg tub, which is towards the more expensive end of the scale.
The good news is that there’s almost always a deal on, bringing the price per kilo down to something much more affordable.
For example, at the time of writing, you can save 50 percent if you upgrade to a 6kg tub.
actually however there is a limited time offer on the USN website that if you upgrade to a 6kg tub you can get 50% off with a code so if you’ve tried the product before then this is an offer you’ll likely want to snap up while you can.
USN Hyperbolic Mass does exactly what it says on the tin. It helps you put on ridiculous amounts of mass. If you down two servings a day and only go the gym on weekends, don’t come crying when you end up a perfect sphere.
On the other hand, if you’re a hard gainer or if you’re running intense two-days, Hyperbolic Mass can make it really easy to consume enough calories and protein to continue packing on muscle.
However, I know I’ve said this previously but it’s worth repeating. Hyperbolic Mass is designed for hard gainers, for people who struggle to gain weight.
If, like me, you gain weight easily, this is not the supplement for you. Instead, pick up something like USN’s Anabolic Muscle Fuel.
