GNC Beyond Raw Re-Built Mass Review

GNC Beyond Raw Re-Built Mass Review

Last week I wrote a post about pre and post workout supplements and my experiences with them over the years. I also mentioned to you guys that I’m going to be doing a lot more reviews over the next while and aren’t you so lucky because for the past month I’ve been trying out GNC’s awesome Beyond Raw line.

I’ve already tried out and reviewed their powerful pre-workout RAVAGE (seriously, I love the name) and it’s really helped me in the gym, as you can read in my review, and today I’m going to review their Mass builder called Re-Built Mass.

Let’s get in to the details of what is in Re-Built

  • HYPER-MASS GAINER WITH 850 CALORIES AND 60G OF PROTEIN TO ENGORGE MUSCLES AND INCREASE MASS
  • ANABOLIC QUAD-PHASE NUTRIENT STACK TO PACK ON
  • MEGA DOSE OF A 10G, FIVE-PHASE ADVANCED CREATINE COMPLEX FOR INTENSE POWER AND STRENGTH
  • ULTRA ANABOLIC GROWTH FACTORS, MUSCLE CELL PROTECTION, AND RECOVERY COMPONENTS FOR ENHANCED MUSCULARITY AND DENSITY

Wow… Did ya catch all of that?

I’m going to start by saying that I’m not in a “bulk-up” stage of my training right now and I’m actually trying to lose fat, so when I saw that one serving of this stuff had 850 calories, 90 from fat, and 120g of carbs, I didn’t know what the hell I was going to do because that’s about ⅓ of my daily caloric intake in one dose.  I was however very intrigued by the stack, amount of protein and creatine that it came with because as well as trying to lose fat, I’m trying to build muscle and stay at the same weight.

The first day I tried Re-Built I took the full serving for breakfast before a volleyball tournament, which is three gigantic scoops, and it filled me up instantly.  I wasn’t hungry for about two hours which is how long breakfast usually curbs my hunger for.  The only issue I had is that it’s double the calories of what my breakfast usually is and didn’t fill me up for any longer.  It was at this point that I decided that I was going to cut my serving size in half and take it post-workout.  I figured this would be the best way to reap the benefits of the protein, carbs, the stack and the creatine.

While you workout, your muscle tissues has been stressed and damaged, so when you take whey protein afterward, along with the right carbohydrates, fats  and some creatine, your muscles are like a sponge and will instantly take in any nutrition for muscle recovery and growth. With this knowledge, I figured I’d be OK with the amount of cals, fats and carbs I was going to be consuming.

I started taking GNC Beyond Raw Re-Built on March 23rd, 2012 and I was very scared that it was going to hinder my goal of losing fat and I feared it was actually goig to make me put more fat on.  Well, I’m not ashamed and I’m quite happy to admit that I was wrong, and I’m going to let these numbers speak for themselves.

As you can clearly see, I LOST weight, I LOST fat around my stomach and I gained muscle in other places. Not only did I lose weight and gain muscle, but by combining the Ravage before my workout, and the Re-Build after my workout, I’ve set more than five new personal records in the gym while weight lifting.

Holy shit, this stuff works!

I promise you guys, as my readers, I will never steer you wrong with one of my reviews. If I don’t think something works or is right for me or you, I’ll let you know.  But I’m very happy say I’m more than pleased with the results I’ve seen from GNC’s Beyond Raw Re-Built and will definitely continue to use it beyond this one month that I have.
