The Technology of Building Muscle


Athletes who are serious about performance and results tend to also be serious about what they put in their bodies. So, for them, 

MuscleTech created the Performance Series, which is free of proprietary blends, has no banned substances or fillers, and has no underdosed key ingredients. 

“Powered by clinical doses of key ingredients studied in real human research, these formulas deliver results fast,” says Brad Bernard, brand manager, sports nutrition, Iovate Health Sciences International Inc. “All MuscleTech formulas are fully disclosed labels, meaning you know exactly how much of every ingredient is in the formula.”

One of the newest additions to the Performance Series, Test HD, was created to provide extremely powerful results to consumers looking for a test booster in pill form. “Test HD contains key test-boosting ingredients, like
boron citrate and shilajit, that have actually been studied and shown to be effective at increasing testosterone levels in human clinical research,” Bernard says. “Test HD works naturally with the body to increase testosterone within the normal, healthy range, thus no PCT or cycling on and off are required. Shilajit not only boosts total testosterone but also increases ATP concentration in the body.” Take one Test HD caplet twice daily — at breakfast and again 30 minutes before your workout. 

Amino Build, another product in this series, was developed to provide consumers with a tasty branched-chain-amino-
acid powder that could help support lean muscle and strength goals. “For the first time, consumers can now enjoy sipping on a strength-enhancing amino-acid powder backed by human clinical research,” Bernard says. Amino Build delivers a proven 2:1:1 leucine to isoleucine and valine ratio in a 100 percent free-form delivery system. Its massive 4-gram dose of leucine has been shown to increase strength by 40 percent. Plus, it’s also packed with a clinically dosed 2.5 grams of betaine, which has been shown to increase muscular endurance. 

“Unlike other amino-acid formulas, Amino Build contains no stimulants, so it can be taken any time of the day,” Bernard says. “It features instantized aminos, meaning no floaters, and it easily mixes with a spoon.”

For hardgainers or people who have to consume a ton of calories every day but don’t have time to eat constantly, there’s Mass-Tech, a state-of-the-art mass gainer. “Mass-Tech delivers more protein than the competition,” Bernard says. “The new-and-improved formula features a multiphase protein system that supplies a blend of fast-, medium- and slow-digesting proteins. This system provides critical amino acids to the body at varying speeds for extended delivery of these vital protein particles into the bloodstream.” 

Bernard says the full-spectrum formula also contains less fat than other weight gainers but is formulated with 5 grams of omega-rich fats, which provide energy-dense calories. “Other weight gainers add fat as a filler and taste enhancer at the cost of your gains,” he explains. “This product also features a massive 10 grams of creatine per serving, which no other mass gainer on the market comes close to — and when you’re trying to pack on size and strength, there is no other compound proven more in human research than creatine.” <
