Default are muscle-tech supplements worth it?

i always see ads for team muscletech supplements in muscle and fitness and other places. they make all these claims about putting on serious muscle. Are these claims really true? I just wanna know if supplements like leukic, gakic, and Anator-P70 are worth money and the hype.

i have used both gakic and luekic. for my money I like luekic better than gakic. but the do say for the best result is to stack the two. I just got done with my last bottle of luekic i liked it for the most part. but i was also taking it with bns No-Xplode ultra creatine burst, Muscle milk protein shake. and gnc amino acids. so with all that shit i better put something on.

IMO the main problem with all those supps. is that if your diet is shit its not gonna do anything. On the other hand if your eating is clean you might have a chance putting on some size with them. Also genetics play a very large role in all this...

Gakic I got to product test as did some others in this forum. I DID find that it helped me crank out an extra rep or two. To me an extra rep or two is not the deciding factor to gain a few more pounds of muscle mass. The cost outweighs the gains so to speak. But I could see it being useful if your diet is in order, and you are keeping a very detailed log book progressing close to your 1 RM. (There goes 70% of the population )

Leukic I do not have any personal experience with. It is basically the amino acid Leucine isn't it? Seven grams worth if memory serves. Would this supplement work? I'd say it would. But, why would you ONLY buy one amino acid out of the bunch? The price is certainly too high IMO. Why not buy BN's BCAA which are 1000 grams worth for $40 and get waay more bang for your buck? It beats 30 servings of Leukic for $10 MORE.

Anator P-70..It's advertised to sound like they just [finally] discovered the Lost Ark of gaining mass.

I would love to believe that a dietary supplement can alter my DNA. If that were the case, I'd love for them to insert gamma rays into their next product and turn my into the incredible hulk. lol. Ok, being serious. Looking at their supplement label, I see 57 grams carbs, 20 grams protein, 7 grams of L-Leucine, and 7 grams of Phenylgene (no clue). It also has probably about 2-3 grams of creatine in it. It says 5, but it's a blend of creatine plus two other ingredients. Forget about the creatine anyways, because 2-3 grams of monohydrate will do absolutely nothing.

In my opinion, I could totally see you gaining mass using this product. However, 16 servings for $60??

In my opinion, and this is just my opinion, I cannot see anyone affording Muscle Tech supplements such as those ON TOP of a grocery bill, protein powder, creatine, and vitamins/minerals. 99 times out of 100 'John Doe' spends more money on the latest MT supplement than his grocery bill, gains a few pounds, then runs out of said supplements in a few weeks. Since his dietary intake was +/- 2500 calories, he loses said 4 pounds and wonders why? Here's why ->

Supplement:
Function: noun
- Something that completes or makes an addition <dietary supplements>

Anyways, that's MY OPINION, and a humble one at that. I believe that MT has good quality supplements hands down and I'm sure they work quite well if they are used in the proper context of the word "supplement".


If you do decide to buy a muscletech stack, be sure to let us all know how it went for you!!

Untill your diet, training, and rest are on point, you dont need to worry about supplilments.

If you have those three areas on lock, then I would suggest starting with protien, dextrose/maltodextrin,creatine and citruline malate. Only after that do you want to look into any other suppliments.

Well said! I would totally agree.

MuscleTech has probably got one of the worst reputations in the bodybuilding world for flashy ads that promise the world and only deliver a lighter wallet!

MuscleTech spends thousands of dollars on two page ads that look like 'training articles' but are really sales pitches..they have used every advertising scam in the book. They put more money into marketing and packaging than the product itself...

...that should make you raise an eyebrow!

LOL, I remember making that EXACT same statement! They are, of course, not the only culprits, but certainly one of the worst.
