Max’s Absolute Mass Bulk Gainer is a weight gainer supplement designed for people who are intent on gaining muscle.
Max’s is a brand of the AminoActive company, who have been selling supplements since 1989. Max products are sold throughout Australia, as well as in China, Indonesia and Malaysia.
Anabolic Protein Blend
Rather than using a single protein source, Absolute Mass contains a blend of hydrolyzed whey peptides, whey protein isolate, whey protein concentrate, casein and milk protein isolate.
This combination is said to provide a mix of fast, slow and medium acting protein to keep you in an anabolic state for longer.
GlycoForce Carb Complex
This complex uses a blend of fast, low and medium acting carbohydrate sources to provide a long term release of energy to power your training.
Sources include fast acting cane sugar, medium acting maltodextrin, fruit sugar extract and slow acting rice and potato starch.
Glutamine is an amino acid that gets depleted during heavy training.
Supplementing will enhance recovery, and infuse the muscle with amino to speed up muscle repair.
Branch Chain Amino Acids
The branch chain amino acids – leucine, valine and iso-leucine – have the quickest uptake by the muscle after training.
As such, they are a prime regulator of muscular development (1).
By increasing the level of ATP in the muscle cell, creatine allow you to train harder for longer.
Who Takes It?
Max’s Absolute Mass Bulk Gainer is intended for those wanting to increase muscle mass, doing resistance weight exercises 5+ times per week, and are following a healthy eating plan.
How to Take
You should add between two and four 50 gram scoops of Absolute Mass to a blender containing 500 ml of whole milk or water and blend for 30 seconds before drinking.
Absolute Mass is a weight gain product and not a meal replacement. It should be taken in addition to your normal meals.
You may experience some stomach discomfort and flatulence, especially if you are lactose intolerant.

Max’s Absolute Mass Bulk Gainer is a good option for anyone looking to put on maximum muscle with minimal body fat.
The sustained release nature of the carb and protein blends extend their effectiveness window, giving you more opportunity to grow.
Each serve is 60 grams of protein though, so it’s for the real hardcore trainers who already have some bulk. One could argue that dose is slightly high, even for the biggest blokes.
Of course, there are more affordable options out there too.
