MusclePharm Creatine Powder Review

image

Creatine is normally found in your meat and creatine is naturally produced in our body as well.

when ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) is used it is change into ADP (Adenosine Diphosphate), what creatine do is by changing your ADP  back into ATP. ATP is a fuel for muscle, so the more ATP you have the more you can do. Creatine will cause volumization as well, which means it will pull water into the muscle. Showing increase in water weight.

What result can see get?
You will see an increase in strength by taking your creatine. Performing more reps and higher weight. This might sound too good, but this is by far the best supplement that I have ever taken.

Why choose musclepharm creatine?
First of all is the taste, it’s suppose to be unflavored but this creatine gives me a sour taste. Which I kinda like it, I don’t have to mix it with any other drink, plain water is okay!

Suppose to be a advance formula creatine so no loading is require unlike normal creatine monohydrate which require you to load in the first 5 days.

Not much bloating for me after using this creatine. As you can see the picture attached below.

Doesn’t really mix that well, will give you a sandy texture. However if you leave it there for 15 to 20 min the creatine will dissolve. Anyway it’s only 5 grams of powder you can easily drink it down so the texture doesn’t affect me much.

Product Packaging

The main difference in this new version is their Athlete Performance Blend – ArgiNitrate, Bcaa Nitrate, CreNitrate which is said to be more effective. Nitrate dilates the blood vessels so it will enhance and blood flow and helps with the distribution of the nutrients.

Next is their Purenergy –

Some information about purenergy

  • A sustained energy boost*
  •  A reduction in the amount of caffeine needed in a formulation to produce tangible results*
  • The creation of a more moderated and gradual finish, preventing the “crash” experienced with caffeine products*
  •  The optimization of natural appetite-suppressant properties*
  • Additional functional health benefits found in pTeroPure pterostilbene* 
  • made up of 43% Caffeine and 57% pTeroPure

As you can see the chart i have gotten from ChromaDex shows a big difference between caffeine(bottom bar) and purenergy(top bar). As you can see caffeine started off with a higher amount of concentration but after the first hour the caffeine dips rapidly but purenergy is still on the rise. Purenergy peaks at the 2nd hour and starts to drop graudually.

Drinking the Assault – Taste.

Great mixability, i prefer the taste of this version of Assault compared to the previous version.

In my opinion i can feel that the effect of this preworkout kicks in faster than the usual one that i took.

It doesn’t gives me the sudden spike in energy, i can feel focus thru out my workout.

Minimum crash afterworkout as well, but some how i feel that it suppresses my appetite as i feel full after a meal (which dont normally happen).

Took the product about 6 hours before bed time and i have no problem sleeping.

Overall i think that this is a new breakthrough for preworkout in the industry and it is worth a try.

Thanks for reading!

I am so happy that I am able to review this awesome T-Shirt by Musclepharm.  First of all the design of the T-shirt really caught my eye, “BEAST MODE”, WEAK END HERE and many more!
The cotton is slightly stretchable; Material is not too thick suitable for Asian country like us in Singapore. Good to use for bodybuilding, running, cross fit or any kind of sports! It can also be worn when you are out as it is fashionable as well! Best of all It doesn’t stinks up after you a hard sweaty workout!
After a few wash the shape of the t-shirt still remains. Not much expanding of the t-shirt. *2 thumbs up!

read my recent review on Toa Payoh Safra Gym!

Review – Vibram Five Fingers – Bikila

–>

My first barefoot shoe, So far this shoe has been with me for quite some time already and i must say the quality of the shoe is really good.
i ran a 42km with it, quite a number of 10km and 20km as well for about 2 years and i am still using it now.
You may find it hard to put on in the beginning, as your toes are not that flexible yet. After a few times it will get better. I used this for Lifting, running even doing strongman training i am using this!

–>

Overall I must say this shoe is really durable and easy to bring around any one who is interested to try barefoot running. Please give it a try!
I would really like to review more barefoot shoes in the future!

Body Check after different diet

–>

From left to right 68kg, 72kg, 70kg, 72kg, 71kg
First photo was taken around last year march. I just started working at NutriFirst and I wanted to get a better body.
2 months later I bulk up to 72kg and subsequently i continued bulking to 74kg by eating like 3000 calories everyday with the help of pass gainers and a lot of food. I don’t really watch my diet but i try to avoid deep fried food, high sugar (canned drinks) or processed food (hotdog, MacDonald)
3rd photo was after the standard chartered marathon in 2012. That time i drop my weight all the way to 68 kg for the run. It was pretty easy for me to lose muscle weight, i stop eating high amount of calories and totally stop lifting weights for one month and I drop about 6kg. After the marathon i started doing my usual bulking but this time, i did not use a mass gainer as i am able get my calories from food alone. 4th photo is around MAY.
The last photo is the most recent one for 2 July 2013. Where i started my intermittent fasting.

Intermittent fasting -Week2- Vascularity

Recently i am really addicted to getting more vascular.

How can you get more veins to show?

  1. high protein low carb diet
  • it will help your body to use more fats as energy instead of using carbs. This is especially helpful is you workout fasted in the morning, working fasted in the morning is said to be able to increase fat burn by 20% more than normal workout timing!
  • shred more fats
    • the main reason why your veins is showing is because your fats is thinning out. you hardly see fat people with veins right.
  • take some Nitric Oxide supplement like arginine product
    • Arginine is a vasodilator. it helps to relax the blood vessel and increase blood flow.
    • http://www.nutrifirst.net/view_products.asp?catid=39&categoryname=NO2-NitricOxide
  • Lift heavy ass weight with proper form
    • if you are lifting heavy with proper form you will be putting the muscle under a more stressful environment in turn tearing more muscle fiber. To recover yourself during workout the body will call more blood to flow to that particular muscle group (the pump). therefore it creates more vascularity.

    Should you replace your meals with protein shake/mass gainer

    Should you replace your meal with mass gainer or protein shake? The answer is no, you still need to get your vitamins and minerals from the food that you take in. Protein powder and mass gainer is a supplement it is suppose to be an addition to help with your diet and not to replace it! Same as meal replacement powder it will be good to use it on a 2 day on 1 day off basis and only use it to replace your dinner.
