Build More Lean Muscle Post Workout
- Boosts muscle recovery and regenerates ATP stores
- Increases strength by 40% vs. placebo
- Superior to regular BCAAs at building lean muscle
MuscleTech® Lab Series After Build™ is packed with 6g of 100% free-acid BCAAs – including the clinically studied 4g dose of highly anabolic leucine.
Leucine is a key dietary amino acid that has the capacity to stimulate muscle protein synthesis. It does this by stimulating your body’s master protein synthesis regulator, mTOR. Each scoop of After Build™is packed with 4g of leucine, and this 4g dose is the exact amount of this highly anabolic amino acid shown in a clinical study to help subjects increase their 5-rep max strength by over 40% in 12 weeks!
Build More Lean Muscle
Betaine is one of the most exciting musclebuilding compounds on the market today. Researchers believe betaine has many mechanisms of action in the body. It has the unique ability to lower homocysteine – which is important since homocysteine can directly impair insulin signaling by reducing insulin receptor substrate -1 (IRS-1) activation, which in turn affects muscle protein synthesis. Betaine also acts as an osmoprotectant, protecting muscle cells against dehydration by acting as an osmolyte, which increases the water retention of cells. Research suggests that a well hydrated cell can support better anabolism. As a bonus, betaine also helps your body synthesize creatine in skeletal muscles!
Researchers have put betaine to the test and the results are incredible – making it a must-have supplement for anyone serious about building muscle. In one gold-standard clinical study, test subjects who supplemented with the exact 2.5g dose of betaine found in 1 scoop of Afterbuild™ built 3.75 lbs. of lean muscle in 6 weeks compared to 0.66 lbs. by the placebo group. What’s more, test subjects actually increased arm size, as measured by a cross-sectional area (49.5 to 54.1 cm2)!
In a separate study, this same dose helped subjects significantly enhance their muscular endurance.
Improved Recovery & ATP Regeneration
Recovering quickly is critical, especially when you’re training hard and pushing your muscles to their limits! Knowing how important recovery is and the importance of increasing training frequency for muscle gains, MuscleTech® researchers included a full 3g of creatine in each scoop of After Build™ to help your muscle cells regenerate ATP. When you increase your body’s ability to supply ATP, you increase your muscles’ capacity to do work and improve the energy efficiency of your muscles.
Creatine has been extensively researched for its benefits in increasing muscle strength, power and enhancing recovery during training. Research published in the Journal of Applied Physiology found that a dosage of 3g of creatine daily for about a month is required to saturate muscles, resulting in increased muscle strength, increased performance and enhanced muscle size. Many recovery products include less than this ideal amount! With After Build™, you get a full dose of creatine in the form of ultra-pure, HPLC-tested creatine monohydrate and creatine HCI.
After Build™ also features a 2g dose of glutamine to help restore plasma glutamine levels that may have been depleted after periods of intense training.
