Ask The Trainer #99 -The Best Products For Muscle Mass


What are your best products for muscle mass gains? If it’s Karbolyn, Also, I’d like to know if one really has to take it with so much water: 10-16 ounces. What are the reasons for that amount of water? Is it really more effective for putting on weight/muscle with that much water? Thanks!!



Hi, Jim. EFX Sports offers a number of products that are extremely valuable for someone who wants to increase their muscle mass. Each product works via different mechanisms in the body to contribute to muscle mass increases.

Test Charge supports muscle protein synthesis by optimizing natural testosterone production in men.

Training Ground BCAA helps activate mTOR, a protein complex that works as a signaling mechanism to increase protein synthesis in the body.

Kre-Alkalyn is a stable, buffered creatine monohydrate that improves ATP production to enhance energy and power output to improve the efficiency of your training. Kre-Alkalyn also serves as a hydrating agent that draws more water into muscle cells. Notably, this may help increase protein synthesis and also add volume to muscle cells.

GlutaZorb glutamine aids protein synthesis by supporting the cellular metabolism of muscle cells. Like Kre-Alkalyn, GlutaZorb is a hydrating agent that improves muscle cell volume. Not to mention, this amino acids contribution to growth hormone production, the immune system, and digestive health.

Training Ground PRE contains ingredients which contribute to energy, stamina, and training intensity, which will increase the productivity of your workouts.

Karbolyn also has a unique niche. It’s a remarkable carbohydrate supplement that allows carbohydrates to convert into muscle glycogen at an unprecedented speed. Like within minutes!

Karbolyn Converts Faster

In contrast, many high carbohydrate foods can take hours, or even days, to convert into muscle glycogen. When your muscles are well-stocked with glycogen, your body won’t break down muscle tissue as an energy source, as it will have a constant supply of glycogen available to use for energy.

In other words, Karbolyn will act as somewhat of an ‘insurance policy’ for your hard-earned muscle tissue. This is why many hard gainers find it beneficial to drink Karbolyn before, during, and after hard training sessions or sporting activities.

Also, mix Karbolyn with an adequate amount of water. Your muscles are unable to store glycogen without it. Your muscles store 3 grams of water for every gram of glycogen. This action is quite significant considering muscle size.

For example, let’s say your muscle tissue is storing 800 grams of glycogen, which isn’t at all unreasonable. That’s 2,400 grams of water in your muscle tissue! Consequently, this much intracellular water alone will make a noticeable difference in how big and full your muscles appear! For this reason, bodybuilders implement precontest carb-loading cycles.

So, there you have it! Hopefully, this helped shed some light on this topic for you.

I wish you all the best of success in achieving your bodybuilding, and fitness goals!
