Ronnie Coleman is a legendary figure in the bodybuilding world having won 8 Mr Olympias and countless other pro bodybuilding titles. It stands to reason then that he knows a little about supplementation and what it takes to become great. Since the release of his Signature Series of Supplements, the Ronnie Coleman brand has grown from a modest three products to a large comprehensive range. One of the latest arrivals to his range is King Mass XL – a mass and weight gaining protein supplement.

Ronnie Coleman Signature Series King Mass XL Pros & Effectiveness
King Mass XL is a traditional high calorie, high carb mass gainer such as Optimum Nutrition Serious Mass or MyoFusion Elite Mass. It does have slightly more protein than these super high carb mass gainers, making it an ideal solution for those who want to achieve leaner gains. The addition of creatine, glutamine and the branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) are a good idea to increase strength and support recovery during bulking periods which are often associated with dramatic increases in volume. Utilising a variety of carbohydrates, each with different absorption times helps to stave insulin spikes and fluctuating insulin levels which can have a negative effect on moods and performance.
Ronnie Coleman Signature Series King Mass XL Cons
It’s very hard to get mass gaining or weight gain proteins wrong and King Mass XL is no exception. As with most high calorie mass gainers, each serve does involve a lot of powder and therefore a lot of volume, which can make it very filling. This factor is often a problem for bulkers as it inhibits their desire to eat. To best combat this effect, it’s best to consume the powder throughout the day rather than in one single hit. King Mass XL could also have reduced the volume needed by increasing the fat content slightly.
Ronnie Coleman Signature Series King Mass XL Taste & Mixability
Ronnie Coleman King Mass XL is said to have a ‘Milkshake Taste’ and ‘Flavor Fit for a King’. The Signature Series of products, especially the proteins have had some interesting and unique flavours including Toasted Almond and Pomegranate Berry and all of them have been fairly well received. This time round, they’ve gone with more traditional flavours including Chocolate, Vanilla and Strawberry. King Mass XL has a similar taste and texture to MyoFusion Elite Mass, being quite thick, even with water, but not unpleasantly so. The powder mixes quite well and if you’re reducing the amount of volume per serve, will mix without clumping or residue. There is a slight grittiness to the powder, but nothing too noticeable.
Ronnie Coleman Signature Series King Mass XL Verdict
Ronnie Coleman’s King Mass XL is an excellent addition to his already expanding Signature Series of supplements. The man himself knows how to get big and this knowledge has been transferred to the formulation and the effectiveness of King Mass XL. The protein is competitively priced and contains a good mix of proteins, carbs, fats and added aminos. If you’re tired of using the same old mass gainers or want a high calorie protein powder which has a more even protein to carb ratio for leaner gains; then Ronnie Coleman King Mass XL is definitely a good option.
