Vince del Monte’s No Nonsense Muscle Building is the best hardgainer workout routine on the internet. I am absolutely biased, but that’s because I have the results to prove it. I have gained over 30 pounds of muscle by following Vince del Monte’s No Nonsense Muscle Building program.

My Hardgainer Transformation

That’s really me! It’s hard to imagine I was that skinny!

For those of you that are serious about undertaking a transformation—about changing your body and your life—I want to share with you some important lessons I’ve learned along the way:

Syntha-6 protein shake

Avoid this stuff like the plague.

All out of protein powder, I decided to purchase a ready-to-drink bottle (more like a cardboard box) protein shake after I finished my shoulder workout. Unluckily for me, I reached for Syntha-6.

Taste: Awful. Just flat out disgusting. You’d think a ready-to-drink protein shake would be better than its powdered form, but you’d be wrong. This is one of the worst protein shakes I’ve ever tasted, and I’ve had some bad ones.

Price: “Why?” was the question I asked myself after I handed over my credit card. $4.58 for 16.9 oz. of this garbage. I should have gone to Walmart and bought a 2 lb. tub of Body Fortress protein for $16 to tide me over until my Optimum Pro Complex Gainer arrives.

Nutrition Facts: 40g protein. 280 calories. 6g total fat. 16g carbs. 4g sugar. Pretty standard stuff.

The Final Word: Avoid Syntha-6 pre-made protein shakes at all cost. I can’t speak for the vanilla or chocolate, but I can’t imagine they’d taste much better.

Are there any ready to drink protein shakes that actually taste good and are moderately priced? Let me know if you’ve purchased any in the comments, thanks!

The July BSN Finish First Transformation Challenge that is!

This is a 12-week challenge and I’m excited to try to push myself to new heights!

I encourage you all to sign up and take that first step toward your transformation. The workouts on the site aren’t really geared for hardgainers, however. I recommend using Vince del Monte’s hardgainer workouts instead. You’ll see much better results.

Every week, one person from the “Finish First” BodyGroup will be selected to win a prize package valued at $150! Two Grand Prize winners receive a 10-day Caribbean escape, a photo shoot with pro photographer Kevin Horton (no relation to Tony, I think), 1 year supply of BSN supplements and a feature in a national BSN advertisement.

Taking the challenge is as easy as 1-2-3:

  1. Upload your before pictures of you holding a newspaper. Take three full body shots in a bathing suit or gym shorts: front, back and side.
  2. Join the BodyGroup and motivate your fellow challengers. Share meal plans, workouts and stay on target.
  3. Get your BSN Stack. I recommend the BSN Strength Stack.

Keep track of your progress by uploading pics, stats and blogs to the BodyGroup. Good luck everyone!


I’ve been awfully busy with life since my last post. Rest assured plenty of updates are on the way! I’m talking new ebooks/pdfs, product reviews, supplement discounts, hardgainer workout routines, and updates on the 12-week transformation I started last week.

Unfortunately, I’ve been low on food. I need get to the grocery store and start eating! It’s the single most difficult part of a hardgainer transformation, and eating right can be costly, but the results come from the diet. You can work your ass off in the gym, but it’ll be for naught if you aren’t getting the nutrition to spur muscle growth.

Post soon,


Con-Cret CreatineCreatine monohydrate is an odorless and tasteless powder that can be added to sports beverages or water. Creatine is naturally synthesized in the body from amino acids and helps supply our muscles with energy. Studies have shown that creatine is effective in providing energy for the muscles, increasing the volume of your muscles and enhancing protein synthesis. The Bottom Line: Creatine  can increase your strength gains.

I recommend cycling creatine to make the biggest gains. Cycling creatine involves a loading phase, maintenance phase and a non-use phase.

  • Week 1—Loading Phase: Take between 20 to 30 grams of creatine for four to five days. Doing so will saturate your muscles with creatine and give you greater increases in strength.
