USN Muscle Fuel Anabolic is a combination of carbohydrates, protein and a “Hyperbolic Stack” containing a combination of supplements designed to improve recovery and performance. Muscle Fuel Anabolic is primarily designed as a mass gain formula, providing 2270kJ/542kcal per 150g serving, a combination of 78g carbs, 50g protein and only 2g fat make it ideal to be taken pre and post workout by those looking to gain mass. Protein comes in the form of whey for fast uptake and egg, milk, soy and casein for slower uptake, resulting in a sustained release of amino acids. Similarly, it contains fast uptake carbs (dextrose) and slower uptake carbs (long and medium chain glucose polymers) for a sustained release of carbohydrates, making it ideal for pre and post workout.
The Hyperbolic stack contains various substances, some which have been shown to be effective after considerable research, some of which have been shown to not be so effective. Creatine monohydrate (improved high intensity exercise performance and improved gains in strength and lean mass), beta alanine (improved ability to buffer lactate, improving high intensity exercise performance) and HMB (reduced muscle break down post training, allowing for improved lean mass gain) are all supplied in significant enough doses for them to be effective. However, for the effects of creatine, HMB and beta alanine to be most effective they must be taken every day and the benefits of beta alanine may not be recognised until after 4-6 weeks of consistent supplementation.
The Hyperbolic stack also contains Tribulus Terraqstris & Avena Sativa for “testosterone support”, neither of which have been shown to improve gains in lean mass or change circulating levels of testosterone as if often suggested of Tribulus by manufacturers. Tribulus is in fact primarily used to increase libido in animals.
The Hyperbolic stack also contains Taurine, but Muscle Fuel Anabolic has not been shown to improve energy production or effect mass gain in any way as is suggested. However, research has indicated that Taurine may reduce the risk of some cardiovascular diseases, so while its unlikely to help mass gain its inclusion is not totally without merit. L-glutamine is also contained in the hyperbolic stack, but there is no evidence that supplementation of L-glutamine will improve muscle recovery or gains in size and strength beyond that of whey protein. This product also supplies 25-50% RDA of all the vitamins a minerals that are most depleted by exercise, a perfect amount to top you up without exceeding %RDAs.
- A blend of fast and slow uptake carbohydrates and protein make this ideal to be taken pre and post workout for those looking to gain mass.
- A boost in vitamin and minerals, without exceeding %RDAs which can lead to health problems.
- A combination of creatine, HMB and beta alanine in sufficient doses to help boost high intensity exercise performance, reduce muscle breakdown after exercise and improve gains in strength and lean mass.
Who’s it for
USN Muscle Fuel Anabolic is ideal for those who doing regular resistance training and are looking to make gains in mass. Due to the very small amounts of fat it is ideal for pre and post workout but a lack of any of the essential fats it’s not optimum as a mass gain snack between meals or before bed. It is not suitable for anyone whose goal is weight loss.
How to use
Add 3 scoops (150g) to 500-600ml of cold water and shake/blend for 30s seconds. Take 1-2 servings daily, ideally taken pre and post workout.
