It’s no secret that guys across the country will do practically whatever it takes to get ripped and shredded, even dabbling in illegal drugs to get the body they want. A recent blog post I saw on a supposed “men’s health” site called Men’s Life and Health reports that you don’t need to revert to steroids to get massive, but instead, you can turn to 2 supplements celebrity’s have been taking ripped, lean physiques.
What supplement stack could they possibly be talking about? None other than Max Shred and Xtreme Antler, 2 over the counter supplements that apparently the companies of which are handing out free bottles of the stuff. I mean, why would a company want to turn a profit when they can just hand the stuff out. Well, you’re about to thank me for saving you from the scam that these products turn out to be!
What is Max Shred and Xtreme Antler?
According to this blog post I’m reading, Max Shred (or Maximum Shred as it’s referred to on their official site) is a all natural pre-workout supplement that is designed to get you stronger, bigger, and more cut. It also apparently helps you gain more muscle from workouts, boosts your energy, burns fat, and gives you massive looking pumps, all within a few weeks!
We tried finding an official ingredients list, but there is nothing listed on the Max Shred website. My guess is that it contains some sort of L-Arginine based on their descriptions, and maybe even a stimulant or 2. It would be a little more helpful to determine whether or not there is the potential for side effects if we knew what the ingredients were, but i digress.
Xtreme Antler works very similarly according to their official site, boasting extreme gains in muscle growth, supercharging your sex drive, and improving memory and mental skills. Just like Max Shred, the potential side effects from the ingredients in Xtreme Antler are not mentioned, but in this case I think it is safe to assume that probably the only ingredient in it is Deer Antler Velvet, or IGF-1.
Deer antler velvet is quite the controversial substance (similar to Ligandrol), and was actually used by Ray Lewis from the Baltimore Ravens to help recover from an injury prior to the Superbowl. (source: 1)
The interesting thing to note about Deer Antler Velvet is that, while it’s banned by major sports leagues, the NCAA, and High school athletics, it is NOT detected in urine tests. The only way to see if your using it is by doing a blood test.
So Does Using Max Shred And Xtreme Antler Really Work?
Most likely not, at least not the way they say it will. First off, the article you think your reading on a men’s health article is really an advertisement. How do I know this? Because if I try to click on any of the links on their page, it directs me to an offer for either Max Shred or Extreme Antler.
Hmmmm, yeah, you would be quite right if you are thinking that is a little bit fishy because quite frankly, it is nothing but fishy.
Red flag #1.
Second, the page is littered with comments, which apparently were all posted today. Of course all of the comments about Max Shred and Xtreme Antler are positive, with guys raving about it’s effectiveness. I tried to leave a comment, and wouldn’t you know it, it’s not going through. It’s not even taking me to a page that says the comment is awaiting moderation.
Red Flag #2.
Also, I noticed that there is no such magazine titled “Men’s Life and Health”…
Red Flag #3.
Finally, and this is the biggest issue, is the fact that the only way you can get these supplements is by signing up for a free trial. “But what could be the problem with that?? I like free stuff!”, you’re probably saying right now.
Well, here’s the thing…you’re NOT actually getting a free sample of the product. When you go to order, they ask for a credit card to help pay for shipping. Sounds fair, until you undoubtedly miss the fine print stating that you can use the product for 14 days, after which they are going to charge you a collective $189 for “testing” out the products.
What’s even worse is the fact that, if you don’t cancel within those 14 days, they WILL continually send you the product and keep billing your credit card until you cancel. This “deceptive marketing practice” has been used for years, and I have been seeing these miracle combo ads popping up all over the internet, especially social networks.
That doesn’t necessarily mean that all free trials are scams. There’s plenty of reputable sellers providing free samples, including Nugenix, Instaflex, and Optimind, all of whom will give you a refund if you ask for one.
Lastly, Here is probably the only credible review I found from someone who has ACTUALLY used Extreme Antler and Maximum Shred, check out his review below:
In short, his experience can be summarized by the following statements:
- It isn’t working for me
- I’m taking 5 capsules, while they say to take 3
- It tastes like shit, similar to talcum powder
- It’s pathetic, it does NOT work
- They sign you up for a subscription service (which I already mentioned above)
- Xtreme Antler – The only thing I’ve noticed is that my hunger level has increased, but not in the day. He says he wakes up at 2 am, completely starving.
- Don’t buy them, they’re both a waste of money.
No a very flattering review, especially for a product claiming as much as it does.

Questions We’ve Received About Max Shred and Deer Antler
I was researching max shred and deer antler on the internet and came across your review.It’s the only ‘real’ review of the products I could find, and I definitely won’t be ordering them now, thanks to your review.
Aside from a post work-out shake are there any other real supplements on the market you would recommend for before or after a session at the gym?
Lee Gallagher, UK
Anyways, as far as supplements go, I would suggest a pre-workout supp called Nitrocut, and a T booster called Testofuel. They are both designed to start working in about a week, and will give you the best results. Here are my reviews:

My Results With Max Shred and Extreme Antler
Since this particular post has received alot of traffic over the last few months, I thought it would only be fair to give Max Shred and Extreme Antler a try and see if it really works. I ordered a 3 months supply of each and started taking it about 1 month ago, and I have to say I’m quite disappointed.
Not only did I NOT see any insane results / gains in muscle, I honestly felt sick after taking this stuff. I didn’t notice it for the first few days, but towards the end of the first week I started to feel like I was coming down with cold / flu like symptoms. I was unsure as to whether or not the Maximum Shred and Deer Antler were the cause, so I just stopped taking it for about a week and within a few days started to feel normal again.
I restarted taking the supplements and, once again, that feeling of sickness started to return. This convinced me wholeheartedly that the supplements must have been the cause. After about 2 weeks of feeling like shit I had enough…I stopped taking them and trashed the rest. No effects whatsoever.
It’s highly recommended that you don’t order Max Shred and Xtreme Antler for the reasons listed above. Is stacking supplements, specifically a pre-workout booster and deer antler spray, worth it? Absolutely! But, there are plenty of other products out there on the market that will leave you with better results, at a far cheaper price.
Some of you may be getting to this page a bit late, and have already ordered it. My suggestion to you is to contact BOTH companies as quickly as possible to help avoid the headaches and financial strain that these 2 products will ultimately cause you. If you need specific help just leave a comment below and I’ll try to help you out in any way I can.

Have you used this supplement?
Although I felt disappointed that the free trial turned into an ongoing order; I managed to negotiate a 50% discount on the max shred. It has given me more strength in the gym - much like creatine, and I can lift more for longer. I don't think it is placebo and I was realistic about the products claims. After the gym I am looking more toned. Not worth the price at face value.

I've been using just the max shred, I didn't get the deer antler, and it actually has increased my muscle tone a lot since I've been using it. It really does work. I never even canceled the order and I never got another bottle or was billed anymore which I find kinda weird. I guess I got a get out of jail free card. Buy uh anyway, side effect wise I can tell you something important though. After about a month of using it and finishing the bottle, I went through withdrawal. I would just randomly throughout the day feel intoxicated for no reason. Thats the only way I can explain it honestly. Like I felt high or drunk. And I would get strange sweat attacks and just feel like Shit in general. So altogether, the max shred works. It does what it promises actually. But if you ever stop taking it, you got about 4 days of withdrawal to go through

It's nothing to call home about
I started this stuff today and it seems alright I have a huge history on supplements for thE past 6 years and it's definetly no something to pay for you do a trial for a months the worth of daily and cancel immediately to avoid further fees whether it be your card or "membership" I'd say go for it just be smart. I feel what your really paying for is the little sheet of paper with a website reference and a workout regimen which is a plus. Do as far as he product goes it's alright the workout schedule I give an alright review I'm actually adding it to my insanity schedule just for laughs and I'm stacking he supplements on top of what I have already so for me it's no skin off my back.
seeing some results
So I've been taking this for about a month now and I think it is working not massive gains but on the other hand it could come down to the fact Ive been training a lot harder now I have something to motivate more. I rang and told them the shipment was late and they extended my actual trial period. and haven't been charged anything addional yet.

I bought this for myself was wondering if females can take this or can you recommend something for woman. Thanks -Harry
It's safe for women, but I don't recommend this kind of free trial product. You would do better with the Crazy Mass Cutting Stack.- Rob
