USN Muscle Fuel Anabolic
USN Muscle Fuel Anabolic is an all-in-one shake designed to support muscle growth and maintenance. Load up a shake with 150g of powder, hit the rack and watch as your frame bulks out with muscle.
Or at least that’s the sales pitch.
We picked up a tub of Muscle Fuel Anabolic (I’m going on record here saying it’s a stupid name) and put it to the test for a week of early morning workouts.
So, does it live up to the hype? Does it deserve your money in the hyper competitive premium protein market? Let’s find out.
Carb Matrix, Protein Matrix, Creatine Monohydrate, Vitamin B6, Zinc, Calcium, Pantothenic Acid, Vitamin B12, Vitamin E, Riboflavin, Biotin, Vitamin C, ToleraseTM L.
Our tub of Muscle Fuel Anabolic was pretty clumpy and difficult to mix. A couple of times, it had a weird gritty texture but that went away with some more shaking. This could easily have been a one-off problem with our tub so we’re happy to change our rating if we hear it’s generally okay.
There’s 6 flavours — Chocolate, Strawberry, Vanilla, Banana, Caramel Popcorn and Chocolate Orange — and the three I’ve tried are really tasty. They smell awesome, too, which is always a nice plus.
Before we dig into the meat of the review, it’s worth highlighting that Muscle Fuel Anabolic uses proprietary blends for its protein and carbohydrates.
The protein blend contains whey protein concentrate, soy protein isolate, egg albumen, calcium caseinate and milk protein concentrate.
The carbohydrate blend contains maltodextrin, dextrose monohydrate and fructose.
Because the blends are proprietary, we don’t know how much of each specific ingredient is actually in the powder. Even though we tend to stay away from supplements with proprietary blends, we decided to test Muscle Fuel Anabolic anyways because it was popular.
All in, there’s 18g of protein, 27g of carbohydrates and 188 calories per 50g scoop. That’s a pretty nice ratio for an all-in-one bulking shake.
Alongside the protein and carbs, there’s 1.7g of creatine and 0.35g of beta alanine in every scoop. Then there’s zinc to help maintain your metabolism, magnesium and B vitamins to improve protein synthesis, HMB to slow protein degradation and pantothenic acid to cut down your recovery period.
After a week of training with Muscle Fuel Anabolic, I was still feeling great.
The recommended serving is three scoops, which I found pretty difficult to maintain day after day.
Mid-way through the week, I cut down to two scoops per serving and still felt energised throughout my workouts.
While I didn’t notice any improvements in lifting or size (I mean, I only tried it for a week), I did notice that my DOMS was wearing off faster and I was feeling fit enough to get back to the gym much quicker.
A 4 kilo tub of Muscle Fuel Anabolic will set you back £103.99, which works out at £26 per kilo. So, it’s not eye-wateringly expensive but it’s definitely not cheap either.
We’ve heard about flash sales cutting 50 percent from the price and buy-one-get-one-free offers. If you can pick up this supplement for £13 per kilo, I strongly recommend you give it a go.
If you’re looking to add mass and have the money for a premium all-in-one supplement, give Muscle Fuel Anabolic a go!
For budget-conscious lifters and anyone else who wants to know exactly what’s in their supplement, however, it’s worth giving Muscle Fuel Anabolic a miss.
