These are some product reviews of bodybuilding supplements I have tried and/or taking. Some have remained a staple in my supplement regimen while others have not.
The below supplements above are considered my top 3 bodybuilding and performance enhancing supplements. I don’t promote a ton of products, only a small handful that I’ve had notable results from.
#1: TestoFuel – Test Booster for Lean Muscle Gains
TestoFuel is one of the few test boosters that actually produces results. It works by increasing your natural testosterone levels. Along with helping you gain lean muscle and increasing libido, you get the health benefits of higher test levels.
TestoFuel doesn’t shut down your natural testosterone production. And there are no harmful side effects. The formula is a very unique and effective blend and the ingredients are from pure sources.
#2: Instant Knockout – Extreme Conditioning Agent & Fat Burner
Instant Knockout is a fat burner that was originally created for MMA fighters. It’s designed to help you get into extreme conditioning. It works by boosting your metabolism and forcing your body to burn fat more efficiently.
Instant Knockout is it also helps you preserve hard earned muscle while dieting. This is the perfect fat burner for those training for a bodybuilding or physique competition. It’s also great for those that need to maintain high energy levels for longer and more demanding workouts.
#3: Gauge Preworkout – Explosive Power
4 Gauge is a preworkout supplement that is geared toward explosive power, enhanced metal focus, and providing clean, sustainable energy. Unlike many other preworkouts, you only need one serving to get the job done.
4 Gauge pre workout contains pure ingredients and the combination of these proven ingredients lead to some of the best workouts I’ve ever had.
Another fact about 4 Gauge is it’s not overfilled with stimulants. 4 Gauge pre workout gives you a smooth boost of energy that sustains you throughout your workout, allowing you to pump out more sets and reps. There’s no crash like many other pre workouts give you.
Here are a few other supplements that I’ve had substantial results with and want to give honorable mention to. The reviews for these can be found below under ‘All Supplement Reviews.’ There’s no particular order.

♦ Shred 360 from AS Research
♦ Condense from Purus Labs
♦ Animal Pak from Universal Nutrition

About My Supplement Reviews
What I will say is this – most of the supplements I’ve taken that have given me results and that I’m currently taking are fairly simple supplements. They’re not flashy and most of them aren’t that expensive. They’re supplements that compliment my training and nutrition plan, and have been proven over time.
I also switch back and forth between some supplements and will also replace certain supplements in order to try a new product. In any case, these other my genuine supplement reviews which means they’re simply based on my own personal experience with the supplement.
I don’t go too much in depth with the label in my supplement reviews. I may list a few key ingredients on some that define what type of supplement it is and it’s purpose.
I also do not get caught up into any scientific claims of supplements. If a supplement doesn’t work for you then it doesn’t matter how many double blind placebo tests or university studies there is behind that supplement. I’m not saying that stuff isn’t important but there are plenty of supplements that claim to be scientifically proven to work that didn’t work for me and didn’t work for others I know. I think we’ve all been there.
On the above note, I encourage you to read the labels and do your own research on the individual ingredients listed in the products your looking to use. Find out their definition, what they do, and optimum dosage. Try them and see how your body responds as everyone responds differently to certain supplements. Do not by any means think that a supplement will replace or make up for intense training and a solid nutrition plan.
These supplement reviews are in no particular order of importance; it’s just the order I’ve been reviewing them.
**All of my supplement reviews are based on supplements I have taken for at least 1 container of the product. None of these reviews are from samples. My reviews are based on my own personal experience. You may or may not have the same experience or results.
