Some of us are never satisfied. Even as we’re on the brink of accomplishing one goal, we’re quietly planning out the next. We want more, and are willing to challenge ourselves every day to get it. Max Muscle is no different. Our cutting-edge science-based products keep getting better and are ready to take you toward the accomplishment or your next goal.

Full Blown XXX (FBXXX) accomplishes what other pre-workout drinks strive for: it provides just the right amount of ingredients that deliver intense energy, power, strength and endurance. One serving of FBXXX is superior to other products. Not only does it deliver more ingredients, but it delivers the right ingredients.

What Makes FBXXX Better

FBXXX is made with only the best ingredients that synergistically work to provide you with an intense pre-workout drink. You will feel the difference immediately. Here is a breakdown of what you will find mixed into this quality formula:

Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate
Arginine is a precursor to nitric oxide (NO). Increased nitric oxide levels relax the blood vessels allowing more blood, nutrients and oxygen to get to the muscles. Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate (A-AKG) is a powerful form of arginine producing even more NO. Arginine is also used to stimulate growth hormone and supports creatine synthesis.

Creatine Monohydrate
Creatine supplementation has shown to improve athletic performance especially when short bursts of intense exercise are performed with minimal rest periods. Creatine monohydrate has a positive effect on muscle size and strength.

CarnoSyn® Beta-Alanine
Supplementation with beta-alanine has shown to improve speed, power, endurance and even enhance recovery. Regular use of beta-alanine stimulates the production of carnosine. Carnosine helps to buffer the build up of lactic acid, delaying muscle fatigue and also functions as an intracellular antioxidant.

Caffeine
Caffeine has many benefits to enhance athletic training. In addition to providing energy, it functions as an ergogenic aid (making training feel easier), improves mental focus, increases fat breakdown, improves endurance and stimulates our metabolism.

Advantra Z®
Advantra Z® is an extract of a citrus fruit and has shown to be effective in fat breakdown, thermogenesis, appetite control and ultimately in increasing the ratio of lean muscle to total body mass. While this ingredient increases our metabolic rate helping us burn more calories, it does this without increasing our heart rate or raising blood pressure! Advantra Z® has also shown to improve athletic performance.

N-Acetyl-L-Tyrosine
N-Acetyl-L-Tyrosine boosts mental focus and increases feelings of well-being. It also helps to delay both physical and mental fatigue.

Schizandrol A
Schizandrol A is a component of the fruit Schizandra chinensis berry. In studies, it has been shown to reduce tiredness and improve concentration. Schizandrol A also enhances delivery of oxygen to the muscles, supports muscular function and cellular energy.

B-Complex Vitamins
B vitamins are crucial for every athlete. They are needed for aerobic energy metabolism and because they are water soluble, they can easily be depleted. Supplementation with B vitamins has shown to be beneficial for energy and performance. B vitamins are also needed for cell division, including the production of new red blood cells.

Vanadium (Vanadyl Sulfate)
Vanadyl sulfate enhances the transport of amino acids to the cells and therefore has been used by bodybuilders and athletes to improve body composition. FBXXX contains vanadium to make sure the key ingredients get to the working muscles.

So, there you have it. Quality ingredients that just make sense. Want to try it for yourself? Head to your local Max Muscle store and ask for a free sample before your next workout. We’re betting you’ll be hooked! Happy training!

Q&A WITH DR. PHIL HARVEY ON FBXXX
Dr. Phillip Harvey, PhD, RD, FACN, head of product development for Max Muscle, answers key questions about FBXXX.

Q: What are the key features of FBXXX?
A: The key feature is that it provides intense energy. It makes you feel like working out and is a powerful energizer. The ingredients are stimulant-based and also provide the nitric oxide (NO) effect of getting the blood pumping. The product helps to motivate you to want to work out.

Q: Would I be able to lift more weight and do more reps with FBXXX?
A: Absolutely. Your workouts and performance will be enhanced. You’ll experience the full potential from your workouts and it will help to raise the bar you have set for yourself.

Q: How is FBXXX different and more superior to the other concentrated pre-workouts?
A: FBXXX contains AdvantraZ®, which is a safe and effective, patented ingredient that provides energy but with no blood pressure or heart rate increase side effect of other stimulant ingredients. CarnoSyn Beta-alanine, a proprietary, patented form of beta-alanine, is in FBXXX. The vast majority of the published studies that are done with beta-alanine are done with CarnoSyn Beta-alanine and we wanted to align this product with the best available scientifically researched beta-alanine available. A special form of L-Tyrosine, N-Acetyl-Tyrosine (NALT) will cross the blood brain barrier and is extremely effective for brain focus and vitality. It supports the production of brain neurotransmitters. Schizandrol A is a family of adaptogens and is used to combat fatigue and increase energy at the mitochondrial level providing longer workouts. Also, I believe the taste of FBXXX will exceed our customer’s expectations.

Q: Do I get fewer ingredients because of a smaller scoop?
A: The FBXXX formula is based on the same “DNA” as our Full Blown Extreme (FBX), but FBXXX is more concentrated.  Based on customer input, we eliminated all the carbohydrates, minerals and several other ingredients from the FBX formula to deliver a 9g scoop. We focused more on the beneficial vitamins and the “feel it” ingredients for energy, focus and stamina that consumers were asking for. 

Q: Do I need to cycle this product?
A: The answer is yes and no. FBXXX contains both creatine and CarnoSyn® Beta-Alanine and the research on these two ingredients show cycling is beneficial. If you are a daily user of FBXXX, you may want to cycle off the product every 4 to 6 weeks to maintain the maximum performance benefits. Cycle back on the product after 2 weeks off. If you are a casual user of FBXXX (2-3 times per week), then cycling is not necessary. 
 
Q: How much nitric oxide does one serving of FBXXX contain?
A: Technically, FBXXX does not contain nitric oxide (NO), rather arginine and beta-alanine that support the synthesis of nitric oxide. NO is an important signaling molecule involved in numerous physiological and pharmacological processes in the human body. NO results in expansion of the blood vessels (vasodilation) that enhances blood flow, oxygen transport and nutrient delivery to skeletal muscles. FBXXX contains effective doses of arginine alpha-ketoglutarate (A-AKG), which is a powerful and special molecular form of arginine resulting in dramatic NO release. A-AKG has also been shown to promote growth hormone and insulin secretion for additional anabolic effects. Beta-alanine has also been shown to promote NO production so you get the benefits of both ingredients.

Q: How many stimulants are in one dose of FBXXX?
A: Most of the ingredients in the FBXXX Activator Blend act as stimulants. We formulated the product with the right amounts and ratios of caffeine, AdvantraZ®, NALT and schizandrol to keep you “pumped up” and motivated to have a great workout. It’s all about the art and science of how they work together. One challenge we overcame is that we made FBXXX taste great since many of these stimulants aren’t exactly pleasing to your palate.
 
Q: Are there any side effects or long-term health risks from this product?
A: All the ingredients in the FBXXX formula have been in the marketplace and used for many years.  Scientific research done on each ingredient confirms their safety. FBXXX is safe to use for healthy adults as long as the user reads all the information on the Product Data Sheet, directions are followed and the product is used responsibly. There should be no long-term health risks. We recommend consulting a physician before starting any diet and exercise program and before using this product. Do not take this product if you have a medical condition. If taking medications, consult a physician or pharmacist before using this product.
 
Q: Is there a recommended age a person could start to use FBXXX?
A: We recommend the product be used by healthy individuals over the age of 18 years. Pregnant or nursing women should not use this product.

Q: Is FBXXX better than FBX?
A: Not better but different. As stated previously, FBXXX is based on the same “DNA” as our FBX formula but FBXXX is more concentrated and stronger. We needed to have an option for those individuals looking for an ultra-concentrated pre-workout product. We know we have a large following who love FBX and we expect them to try FBXXX. Some may switch over and others will stick with what currently works.   
 
Q: Can I use more than one scoop of FBXXX?
A: In beta testing FBXXX during the product development phase, we found that one 9g scoop of FBXXX is plenty powerful for a great workout. It is perfectly fine to use more than one scoop if you prefer. Stacking is another option and FBXXX can be used to spike FBX or to add to Xtinguisher, Pro BCAA or Max LiquiCarn. Since FBXXX is a powder, there is a lot of versatility.
 
Q: How will FBXXX help increase muscle mass?
A: FBXXX was not designed specifically to increase muscle mass, but can have a secondary benefit. By this I mean if you are getting a more comprehensive and complete workout by using this pre-workout product, the outcome will be a beneficial anabolic muscle mass effect. We eliminated the carbohydrates and FBXXX contains creatine, which may also promote muscle mass gains. The most effective way to increase muscle mass is to add a post-workout product like ARM with the beneficial protein, carbohydrates, the branched-chain amino acids, especially leucine, to get the maximum benefits.

“I use FBXXX as a pre-workout drink for the gym, for cardio or for other sports and recreational activities. It keeps me focused and alert and elevates my energy levels, providing me with the endurance I need at the gym or in the ring. I typically do an hour of cardio after I work out; FBXXX sustains my stamina for my entire workout. Also, I've noticed gains in my strength when I box or when I play outdoor sports. In addition to FBXXX, I also use Max Nitro 2 and BAX pre workout. I use Max ARM for my post workout.”

“I am currently using FBXXX as an additional supplement to FBX. I use a ¼ - ½ scoop when I am running under 5 miles. On my harder training days, I use a full scoop of FBXXX with FBX. I also use both before weight training. FBXXX is helping me reach my fitness goals because I believe it allows me to run both longer and harder. It seems like I reach a “sweet spot” where I'm just coasting and not working as hard as I actually am. My head just seems to really enjoy the work out. … Other products I use with FBXXX are BAX, Max Glutamine, Pro BCAA, Max Pro, Essential Omega, Organic Berry Blend, Max ARM and Max ACM. I wouldn't be in the shape and condition I am without the expert advise I get from my Max Muscle coaches, Jennifer and Steven at Max Muscle Las Vegas. I hope to run in the Las Vegas marathon this December. I’ve had many setbacks along the way, but my Max Muscle coaches keep me motivated and positive and all I have to do is truly try.” MS&F
