Weight gainers are designed for maximum size. Lean gainers contain fewer calories, but provide as much or more protein as weight gainers. Weight gainers are suggested for “hardgainers” with smaller appetites and/or faster metabolisms. Lean gainers tend to be used by athletes that already have a good base and are looking to add size more gradually. Pound for pound, lean gainers are more expensive than weight gainers.
Gain should be combined with a balanced diet and exercise. Use R1 Gain in place of one or more of your daily protein shakes for extra calories. The complex carbs in R1 Gain also help refeed glycogen stores after workouts.
R1 Gain is higher in protein and contains fewer calories and carbohydrates than R1 LBS. R1 Gain is considered a lean gainer. R1 LBS is a traditional weight gainer with over 1,000 calories.
