does thermogenics hinder mass gaining?

Generally most people wouldn't take a fat burner while trying to gain weight. Usually its one or the other - gaining/cutting. Hard to do one or the other. Certain supplements help each goal. I'd stick with taking a thermogenic while cutting. You want to keep as much of a caloric surplus while weight gaining as possible. Fat burners are not the greatest aid for that.

technically a thermogenic is just something that increases fat burning through raising your body temp. Simply drinking coffee is a thermogenic. Take coffee with bitter orange (eat orange with white stuff) and you are doing a standard thermogenic. But most of the line of products these days are geared toward weight loss not just thermogenisis. Keep your amount of fat while weight gaining at a T so that you have storage if needed, but dont have so much that it throws off your body mass as Fat is a living thing; hormones are created ect.. All that being said most preworkout supplements have thermogenics in them start with that unless fat % becomes much larger than wanted then replace preworkout drink with thermogenic supplement

If you're eating more than you're burning you will gain mass. Thermogenics work by raising your body temp which is turn burns more calories. It would seem somewhat counterproductive to pay for a thermogenic (ie a fat burner) while trying to bulk up, however I know someone people that use stimulants that would be classified as thermos for pre workout just as an energy boost
