Never tried it, but you have to realize that most bodybuilding supps are exaggerated. Protein is protein. There is no "special protein" that makes it easier for you to burn fat AND gain muscle. You burn fat through exercise, you gain muscle through eating and recovery after exercise.
Dudes at GNC just parrot what the Muscle & Fiction ads say.
yeah i know that. i had one guy who was all fat and out of shape trying to give me advice and i wouldn't even listen to him.
anyways, this shit supposedly has some extra ingredients that help with fat loss. i guess i will see. the only thing that remains constant about my search for the perfect helper is that i will keep up my cardio and weight training with a vengeance.
I read the product description on GNC.com, and it doesn't seem to be too exaggerated. If the price is comparable to other MRP's then try it, but don't expect miracles. There is no fast and easy way to lose fat and build muscle or we would all be Aaaah-nold circa 1985.
Also, beware the claim that your muscles will "feel bigger and better in days". Yeah, the product is filled with Arginine, and that helps give you a pump, but it does nothing for actual muscle mass or strength.
It's just protein powder. Be careful with that stuff too when you're trying to cut because it's not hard to tack on a couple of hundred extra calories. NO supps are generally garbage aside from giving you a quick pump, but I don't know what exactly is in this stuff. You should also try and find a local supplement store because even with a gold card GNC is really expensive. Surprisingly enough Vitamin World has some deals if you get their card (it's free), but without it you're paying insane prices. A truth that extends to nearly anyone working at a supplement store is that they don't know shit. I usually ask really easy questions just to see what kind of BS they make up to try and sell me something. Even local owned places do this. Sometimes the employees are jacked and still don't know shit, but just gain muscle by doing whatever so they think they know what works.
