I just read an article in flex aug 2001 issue that said if you use 6-9 grams of hmb you will see results. The results you can expect based on the article was body fat reduction. I was thinking of trying this product after i finish my t2 cycle to test its claims. I found a pretty good price on this stuff for about $30 a month on 6 grams a day. I wanted to know what bill, brock and jmb thought of this. If anyone else has an opinion id love to hear it.
Yeah try it!!..It feels just like Deca!
Really unless someone gave it to you for free I wouldn’t even bother. I’ve known hundreds of people who’ve used HMB and not a single one of them ever got anything measurable out of it. I think the recommended dosage is 3 grams per day. Well if 6 or 9 grams a day gave drastic results then I’d at least think that 3 grams per day would give some sort of results but we haven’t seen this.
A couple of years back I was invovled with a clinical study (published in the National Strength and Conditioning Journal) where we evaluated the effects of 5 grams of HMB per day in weight trained athletes. The study did compare it to a creatine containing product if I recall correctly. From what I recall, the only thing we say in the HMB group was WEIGHT LOSS and no change in FFM. It is a waste of money and for whatever reason 99% of the studies completed on HMB have been done by the patent holder MTI. Waste of time and $
I have never heard a single positive comment made in regard to HMB by anyone I know. I’ve never used it myself. Just my two cents.
HMB was one of my favorites for a while. I’m really not sure why though. I was told be a guy with some BB experience (he’s part owner of a gold’s outside Toronto). He said the Natural guys (competitive pro’s) combined Glutamine and HMB and almost didn’t have to eat. The anti-catabolic synergy between the two help hold on to all their muscle. The two times i’ve taken it, I was taking it with glutamine or Creatine so i don’t know how it is by itself. I would say now, that you can get more done with other supps.
BTW, I once read in MM2K that any more than 3 grams a day made no difference in anything except the amount that you pissed out.
