Russian Bear is my first and number #1 pick for weight gainer. My favorite flavor is the chocolate. The vanialla is too strong and too thick for the flavor. Anyone who's looking for rapid weight gains, look no more. I used to have a hard time putting on weight for a long time but, since I used this product I haven't had anymore problems with gaining anymore. Before taking this product, you will gain rapid weight all over your body. Make sure to exerise when taking this product.

I bought this because I do weight training, but don't ever have a large enough appetite to consume the correct amount of calories. So, the protein content combined with the weight gaining properties looked very appealing. The only problem is, it is un-drinkable. It tastes so so very bad, I simply can not drink it. I know that taste is subjective, and I have tried many brands, some of which taste good, and some of which are merely tolerable. The Russian Bear 5000 is not even tolerable. A glass of whiskey goes down smoother than this. It might be great stuff, I don't know. As far as I can tell, it's not worth it to find out.

      Comments about Vitol Products Russian Bear 5000 Gainer Choc - 4 Pound Powder:

      This product for me was very hard to take because of it's consistency. If you mix it like you are supposed to it becomes like a thick syrup and for me drinking it all day was tough. at the time I didn't weigh myself so for that aspect I can not comment. If you are interested in a weight gainer I would say give it a shot because it has a lot of calories but be prepared to drink it as you would for any other weight gainer.

        This product has the best taste for the muscle building it helps with. I have probably tried over a hundred weight gaining with muscle building product and this one has worked with no leveling off yet after over 1 year.

          I've been stacking this with cellmass 2.0 and 100% gold standard whey protein. I'm generally a smaller guy so this is why I used this product. I've gained 15 pounds in the last month and am just finishing up my third bottle. I'm in a bulking phase but I continue to put on lean muscle while gaining no fat. I take 2 scoops before bed mixed with milk, a bit of olive oil, flax seed, and oats.

                Comments about Vitol Products Russian Bear 5000 Gainer Choc - 4 Pound Powder:

                I started taking the bear about 2 months ago trying to put on some muscle and weight since I've always been really skinny and thin since I was a kid. When I started working out before taking this, I was 5'9 and 146 lbs. 2 months after using this and going through the whole bottle, I gained 8 lbs. and saw noticeable results on the outside. One thing that makes this better (in my opinion) than the rest is that it contains a hefty amount of protein and 0 (yes, that's right; ZERO) fat so you get what is most important. It is easy to mix, tastes great, and delivers good results! As long as you do your part on lifting weights with proper technique, I can guarantee that anybody will see the results other reviewers have. I know I did.

                Already ordering my 2nd bottle to continue the transformation.

                    This stuff tastes so good! I'd say its as good as chocolate milk. The instructions only tell you to mix 5 scoops per gallon of milk so I broke it down to about just under a scoop per 20oz of whole milk (20oz was the top line of my blender bottle). I had 3 of these a day and then after 3 bottles of this I figured I'd try a different one. I'm switching back. Nothing tastes anywhere near as good.

                                  I mix one scoop of Russian Bear with 4oz of water and 4oz of milk and enjoy it about 30-60 min before bed on days where I do strength training work outs. It helps put me right to sleep and I noticed I gained size and strength within two weeks of use. I would recommend this to people who are looking to improve their max on bench/ squats and improve muscle size. If your looking to lose weight DO NOT USE THIS! As for the taste, it is AMAZING! Don't be fooled by the smell when you first open it. Once you taste this shake you will want more. Its very convenient, blender is not needed, a twenty second spoon blend will work 100%.

                                      im not a hard gainer, i weigh 250 lbs and am just trying to get as big and strong as possible. i take universal products which give me great gains in strength and mass. i decided to put russian bear 5000 in my routine and saw amazing results. this product adds mass every were and gives u great energy and strength. im keeping this to stack with my animal products for good. i take 2.5 scoops after work out with milk along with animal nitro. instant recovery. you dont have to be a hard gainer to use this. i was a solid 243 and after a week in up to 250 with a 1350 total lift. ( bench , squat, deadlift) take the bear and get huge.

                                          Russian Bear is my first and number #1 pick for weight gainer. My favorite flavor is the chocolate. The vanialla is too strong and too thick for the flavor. Anyone who's looking for rapid weight gains, look no more. I used to have a hard time putting on weight for a long time but, since I used this product I haven't had anymore problems with gaining anymore. Before taking this product, you will gain rapid weight all over your body. Make sure to exerise when taking this product.

I'VE GONE FROM 168 TO 194 SINCE THIS PAST OCTOBER, AND THE ONLY THING I CHANGED WAS ADDING RUSSIAN BEAR 5000 AS A POST-WORKOUT. I ONLY USE 1 SCOOP WITH 4 CUPS OF MILK AND EAT NORMAL THE REST OF THE DAY. I ALSO TAKE IT ON MY OFF DAYS. IF YOU DO IT 1 SCOOP PER SERVING LIKE ME, YOU CAN GET 15 SERVINGS OUT OF 1 FOUR POUND TUB.

                                          Ryan S: The directions say to mix 5 scoops with one gallon of milk and drink throughout the day. So they figure you can do this 3 times.

                                          I wouldn't go by that. I would just drink two regular size shakes a day if working out consistently. Either one scoop or 1.5 scoop in the morning and then another after a workout or for bed. When I was working out 2-3 times a week and doing my two shakes a day, I gained about 13 lbs in less than two months and I noticed a change. Before working out I used this as a meal replacement on busy days and it was helpful. You figure 1.5 scoop gives you approx 750 calories and plenty of protein for one serving (maybe still more than you need). One jar lasted me several weeks.

                                          I was forced to stop working out mainly lifting weights due to a medical condition. I recently had surgery. I did lose a lot of my muscle, tone, and about 12 lbs because of surgery. I plan to order a jar to help between meals. Will prob do a 1 scoop shake a day to help get more calories in until I'm able to touch more than 10lb weights.

                                          Hope this helps. Another good product I've tried and friend recommend is optimum nutrition gainer

                                          kenneth a: First read the ingredients make sure they fit your goals and needs. Having said that...russian is backed by some great science and Russian bodybuilding experience how ever it should be raken pretty as directed to get THE results (use ofextra ingredients to help you grow) but I personally like it for the high amounts of amino acids and I use a different gainer as my staple. Good protein is not hard to find however a good complex carb based gainer is hard to come by and for this I would recommend Up Your Mass by mhp. I have never used mass tech and probably wont.

                                          Shane D: The serving size if I remember correctly is 5 scoops? It says the serving scoop amount on the back of the packaging. The recommend you mix the serving in about a gallon of liquid (milk, water). If the serving is 5 scoops the nutritional facts will match that amount if you drink the full serving in one day. If you mix it and drink it over the course of say 4-5 days just divide the nutrition by that much. Say its 500g of protein for a serving and you drink it over 5 days that would be about 100g per day. So simply mix the entire serving and you can just divide up the amounts by the time it takes you to drink it. I use to mix an entire serving (4 or 5? scoops) with a gallon of lowfat milk. I would drink half one day and the other half the enxt so I could just divide the totals by 2. Instead of say 400g protein and 5000 calories I was getting 200g of Protein and 2000 calories.

                                          Hope that helps!

                                          Darrell S: Buy a gallon of milk. Pour out half and save in a separate container. Get a funnel and pour 5 scoops of Russian Bear slowly into the gallon and shake it up. Wait until the foam resides then add the rest of the milk back into the gallon. One scoop of Russian Bear has 37gms of protein, 78gms of carbs, 12gms of healthy medium chain triglycerides, and 520 calories. Zero fat. This should help you figure out your totals. Drink a half gallon throughout the day. Remember to shake up the gallon bottle before each use. Good luck in your quest to gain weight! Feb 12, 2014

                                          Ryan S: I recommend 1 or 1.5 scoops mixed with milk in a shaker bottle. I typically have one shake in the morning and one at night. On workout days, I'd take one post workout. I feel this is a good amount without overloading your body.

                                          To figure out the amount of calories, protein, etc you can take the number on the label divided by 5. So 184 MG of protein 5= 36.8.

                                          Russian bear has been one of the best weight gainers I've tried. Keep in mind everyone is different and results may vary.

                                          Ryan S: When I first used it, my stomach didn't like it too much but I think that was because the amount I consumed plus whole milk which I don't use anymore either. I do a medium shake once or twice a day. Honestly I was worried about some of the ingredients and still wonder how much sugar is in it. However a lot of other products make me have jitters and headaches, this doesn't. The only other side effect I can think of is it makes me want to work out! I can't say for sure if any ingredient is causing this but I do feel focused and ready to push myself hard. Great results so far. I had to stop working out for medical reasons for two years, now im back and getting my weight/muscle back to where I was.

                                          As far as I know it has no creatine. As for taste, I remember it tasting better a few years ago. Maybe I have to get use to it again. Overall though the taste is better than most.
