MuscleTech Pro Series Muscle Builder is a fairly unique pre-workout supplement that might be right up your alley if you’re headed for a gaining cycle.

It uses clinically determined dosing of a single ingredient to match the significant gains seen in the study.

It uses only one ingredient, it’s pretty cheap, and it’s getting very positive customer feedback, so we decided to take a closer look.

1. Muscletech Pro Series Muscle Builder Benefits

Muscletech Pro Series Muscle Builder ReviewWhat Muscletech Pro Series Muscle Builder is right there in the name. Simply put, it’s a muscle builder.

It helps you work out harder and get better results from the extra hard work.

Take this stuff and you’ll see:

  • Better pumps resulting from increased blood flow.
  • Improved strength.
  • More stamina and endurance.
  • Delayed fatigue during workouts.
  • Noticeable strength and size increases.

2. What Are The Ingredients?

They’re simple promises, but if they pan out, MuscleTech Pro Series Muscle Builder can be a very effective addition to your arsenal.

In order to figure out if this is the case, the first thing we did was take a look at the ingredient profile.

In the case of MuscleTech Pro Series Muscle Builder, there’s only one ingredient:

MuscleTech Pro Series Muscle Builder ingredients.<br><br>
MuscleTech Pro Series Muscle Builder ingredients.

  • 400 mg Adenosine 5′-Triphosphate Disodium (aka PEAK ATP)

ATP is present within the cells of your body naturally.

It is the primary form of energy currency within cells.

But ATP cannot be stored in large quantities within your muscle cells.

Bodybuilders load up on creatine because while ATP cannot be stored within muscle cells, creatine can, and it converts to ATP when called upon.

PEAK ATP provides the first way to directly increase ATP by offering it in a bioavailable form.

By taking Muscletech Pro Series Muscle Builder, you’re increasing ATP more directly so your muscles have more energy to work harder, leading to better muscle-building results.

Another benefit of PEAK ATP is increased blood flow.

This is the same benefit you get from most pre workout supplements with main ingredients like L-Arginine and L-Citrulline.

PEAK ATP, on top of increasing muscle energy, increases blood flow throughout your body so you get more much needed oxygen and nutrients delivered to your muscles for better pumps as well as better post workout recovery.

3. How To Use It?

The recommended dose of MuscleTech Pro Series Muscle Builder is 1 capsule taken with a glass of water about 30-45 minutes before your workout.

On non-workout days, take your 1 capsule on an empty stomach before breakfast.

4. Clinical Studies

Adenosine 5′-Triphosphate has been clinically tested at least a few times with positive results.

In one study, participants were given 400mg of oral ATP daily for 15 days.

The participants that received the active dose were able to maintain a higher force output at the end of an exhaustive workouts session than the participants given the placebo.

via GIPHY

In a 12 week study, also using a daily dose of 400mg, the group taking the active ingredient increased their strength as determined by bench press, squat, and deadlift amounts by 121.9 pounds as opposed to the placebo group increasing by only 49.4 pounds.

Muscle thickness was also 96% more improved in the group receiving the ATP.

5. Who Is MuscleTech?

Muscletech has been around a long time.

It’s a subsidiary of a company called Lovate Health Sciences in Buffalo, NY, which also offers other supplement brands, like SixStar Nutrition.

According to the Better Business Bureau, they have an A- rating.

There are no current concerns about their advertising practices or business dealings.

There have been a few complaints from individual customers not satisfied with the products they used, but they each seem to have been resolved with a refund.

6. MuscleTech Muscle Builder FAQ’s

Is MuscleTech Muscle Builder a steroid?

Nope. 400 mg Adenosine 5′-Triphosphate Disodium (PEAK ATP) is the the main ingredient of MuscleTech Pro Series Muscle Builder.

It isn’t some hormone that’ll give you boatloads of side effects.

PEAK ATP is a natural chemical formed by creatine in your muscles.

So if you’re used to taking creatine, then think of this supplement as skipping a step, getting your muscles the energy they need faster and more efficiently.

Is Muscle Builder safe to take?

Doctors trust Adenosine, the main ingredient, to help patients who are dealing with things like irregular heartbeat and even cancer.

They use it to see just how healthy the ol’ ticker is when you’re hooked up to a stress test.

At high dosages (higher than what you’d be taking with MuscleTech Muscle Builder) it may cause problems like chest pain.

But as long as you’re sticking with the recommended dosage, the supplement is safe.

In fact, according to Dr. Stephen Sinatra, “Increased ATP helps energize the heart and reduce high blood pressure.” Source

via GIPHY

That being said, if you’re taking prescription meds, consult a physician before taking this or any other supplement.

For more info on Adenosine, check out this article on drugs.com.

Keep in mind though, you’re only getting 400mg of the stuff, it’s not a high-potency injection like a doctor might give you.

Do I need to cycle it?

The makers of MuscleTech Muscle Builder don’t say anything about cycling the product, but it wouldn’t hurt to take a week off every month or so to re-balance for optimal effectiveness.

Research shows that you’re going to get the best results by taking one MuscleTech Muscle Builder capsule every day.

ATP doesn’t get stored in your body, and clinical studies proving its effectiveness were done while subjects took it every day (see Study 1 & Study 2).

Oh, and the muscle thickness of those in the study turned out 96% more improved than those taking the placebo.

Yup, 96%!

We covered this above, but for good measure here’s how to take the supplement. . .

Should I stack anything with it?

You can combine MuscleTech Muscle Builder with MuscleTech Clear Muscle.

And on the MuscleTech website, they recommend you stack it with protein for “ultimate muscle building.”

Although the Muscle Builder supplement doesn’t fit perfectly into MuscleTech’s much-touted supp-stacking “Trilogy” (which includes the following MuscleTech’s products: Phosphate Muscle, Clear Muscle, and Plasma Muscle), you’ll likely notice better gains if you stack Muscle Builder with any of these products.

But we advise you do your own research here and take it slow in the beginning.

Will it flag a drug test / is it safe?

While the results you get may feel like you’re cheating, MuscleTech Pro Series Muscle Builder will never flag a drug test because it’s completely natural and gets fully metabolized by your body.

Can women use it?

Yep, women have muscles too.

And their bodies go through the same metabolic process as men. But like we said before, women who are pregnant or breastfeeding need to take special precautions.

Does it really work?

The clinical studies speak for themselves.

And the reviews (see ‘Reviews’ section below) just strengthen the case for a hard-hitting supplement that’s gonna serve up some serious results.

7. Where to Buy it

Unlike many bodybuilding supplements, MuscleTech Pro Series Muscle Builder is not just available online through its official website.

In fact, it’s not even sold on its website.

Instead, there’s a “Where to Buy” page that directs you to local and online retailers that carry their products.

I mean, scrolling through the reviews you’re hard-pressed to find any rating under 8 or 9 stars.

Amazon.com tells a slightly different story, but only slightly.

Still, most users of MuscleTech Muscle Builder are coming away with positive results.

On the other hand, some complain that the product makes them sluggish, that it doesn’t work as claimed, and some are getting short-changed on the amount of capsules in a bottle.

Of course, no product is perfect, and that includes MuscleTech.

So I want to share a couple of the negative reviews.

This guy gets to feeling sluggish after using the product.

Although it isn’t a common theme, I did see this complaint pop up here and there in the reviews.

This next user got short-changed with capsule count.

A few people left poor reviews with this same complaint.

I’d have to imagine the makers of MuscleTech are looking into this. . .

At the end of the day, keep in mind that 67% of the Amazon reviews for MuscleTech Muscle Builder are positive 5-stars, opposed to a relatively low 6% 1-star reviews.

Ah, but again, your mileage may vary.

Have a look-see at this YouTube review of MuscleTech Pro Series Muscle Builder. . .

Yup, not a happy camper.

He says, “I’m just like ‘what the hell?’ seriously.

There are other products out there that are much better than this.

Don’t waste your twenty bucks."

But for good measure, here are a few more reviews I stumbled upon during my search. . .

  1. Elizabeth says: “Great for extra energy without caffeine, More productive workouts and having lost weight need to add muscle tone and this helps a lot, I do P90X3 and yoga and have noticed increased energy and I get more out of my workouts.”

Another user had a just as positive, if slightly delayed, result: “This product didn’t show me immediate results but after a month I could tell a difference.

It brought my strength and endurance to new levels.

I really didn’t understand how much of a difference it made until I stopped taking it.”

As you can see, most people see very positive results after using MuscleTech Pro Series Muscle Builder, while a few users here and there aren’t too happy with the product.

9. MuscleTech Muscle Builder Vs. Clear Muscle

Clear Muscle contains BetaTOR which amplifies protein synthesis while simultaneously inhibiting muscle breakdown.

You’re supposed to take 6 pills per day max.

The ingredient in MuscleTech Muscle Builder is PEAK ATP which makes your muscles put in more work.

With Muscle Builder, you take just 1 pill per day.

BetaTor is the main ingredient in Clear Muscle.

Here’s a helpful video review that compares and contrasts Muscle Builder and Clear Muscle. . .

And this guy (below) has some choice words on the effectiveness of Clear Muscle as a supplement.

He pretty much calls out MuscleTech for their “gains claims” and says your money is better spent elsewhere. . .

BUT. . .

MuscleTech did some serious R&D and found that combining the two (Muscle Builder and Clear Muscle) is highly effective, because they’ve released. . . drumroll please. . . MuscleTech Clear Muscle SX-7 Revolution, which contains both PEAK ATP *AND* BetaTOR.

MuscleTech claims the combination results in gains of 18.7 lbs. of pure, lean muscle in 12 weeks.

Users can also expect to add almost 212 lbs. to their best bench/dead-lift/squat total.

That’s gonna add up to crazy gains.

And here’s the source for their study if you’re up for some due dilligence.

10. What Are The Potential Side Effects of Muscle Builder?

No side effects are mentioned on the product website, or in the clinical studies.

We did come across a few reviews that complained of sluggishness after taking the product.

Standard warnings on the MuscleTech Muscle Builder bottle
Standard warnings as seen on MuscleTech.com

Of course, no supplement can be guaranteed to be free of side effects for everyone, it seems very rare for any to be caused by MuscleTech Pro Series Muscle Builder.

The only warnings on the label are the very standard cautions not to use while pregnant or nursing, and to consult with a doctor if you have a medical condition and/or take medications.

And obviously, keep it away from the kiddos.
