    Echo Supplements on Reflex Muscle Bomb

    Muscle Bomb is Reflex Nutrition's latest pre-workout supplement and the formula really appeals to us at Echo. There isn't a huge ingredient list which means that the ingredients Reflex have included are in really... really high doses!  

    Reflex have covered a few bases with Muscle Bomb - recovery (from iBCAAs) to muscle pump (Citrulline Malate) to energy and endurance from Beta-Alanine, Betaine and L-Carnitine Tartrate. Most pre workouts that attempt this approach fail due to low dosages but that definitely isn't the case with Muscle Bomb. With 7g of instantised branched chain amino acids (iBCAAs) you will get a higher dose in a single serving of Muscle Bomb than most stand-alone BCAA supplements.

    Similarly we have never seen a dose of Citrulline Malate as high as 8g - and we're serious about that, most pre-workout supplements have a dose of around 3-4g at best. Beta Alanine is dosed highly enough that at 2 scoops you get a full days worth (3.2g) of this super supplement; again this could easily replace a standalone beta alanine supplement!

    Reflex Muscle Bomb Key Facts

    Muscle Bomb comes in 2 different varieties - with and without caffeine - which means you can choose to take advantage of the performance boosting ingredients without having a high caffeine dose if you prefer, or you can take the non-caffeine version on rest days, as the ingredients will be beneficial if taken daily. This product is the caffeinated version which has 250mg caffeine per 2-scoop serving.

    Reflex Muscle Bomb - Manufacturer's Description

    What do you expect from your pre-workout in terms of results? If you want more, if you want those around you to recognise those differences, then you have to optimise every part of your approach.

    Categorically and factually one of the world's most, if not the most, potent pre-workout formulae available delivering mega doses for all main ingredients in line with double blind scientific studies. Muscle Bomb is also free from artificial colours and sweeteners.

    Key Ingredients:

    • iBCAA 7,000mg
    • Citruline malate 8,000mg
    • Beta-alanine 3,200mg
    • L-Carnitine tartrate 2,000mg
    • Betaine 2,500mg

    The problem with most pre-workout products
    The market is now flooded with pre workout products and it’s nigh impossible for the consumer to be able to make an informed choice between products with scientifically proven dosages on all key ingredients. Most pre workout products are made from proprietary blends which do not tell you the amount of each active ingredient.

    The other significant issue is that nearly all pre-workout products are loaded with caffeine which can disguise a very poor formulation. Caffeine on its own is a powerful ergogenic aid and it’s inexpensive, so it’s normally at the top of the list for most supplement companies to use.

    Muscle Bomb, it’s a logical formula supported by science
    Muscle Bomb contains fifteen ingredients, seven of which are specifically chosen for their role in the best pre-workout performance, available with and without caffeine. All doses used are at the minimum level used in double blind scientific studies. We’d strongly encourage you to look them up or follow the links on our Muscle Bomb website page. Each of the studies relating to each of the seven key ingredients are also listed below so that you can see first-hand that the doses used in real studies match those found in Muscle Bomb. Be in absolutely no doubt that this has a profound difference to a pre workout formula. Once you try Muscle Bomb we are convinced that you’ll never use another product.

    Here’s the kicker that really puts Muscle Bomb into a league of its own, its contains a truly HUGE 25,400mg of active ingredients per 2 scoops (30g):

    Key ingredients No.1, 2 & 3 – iBCAA 7,000mg
    The 3 branched chain amino acids, L-leucine, isoleucine and valine, all micronized and instant mixing, in the most proven 2:1:1 ratio, they are arguably the most important amino acids an athlete can take. Each double serving contains 7,000mg which is more than the dosage used in a double blind scientific study that demonstrates the anabolic activity of BCAAs during exercise.

    The study you need to read: Intake of branched-chain amino acids influences the levels of MAFbx mRNA and MuRF-1 total protein in resting and exercising human muscle. Dose used in study 6.8g for an 80kg athlete. www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22127230.

    Key ingredient No.4 – Citrulline Malate 8,000mg
    Citrulline malate is one of the best pre-workout supplements for great pumps, delaying fatigue and pushing more reps. Our citrulline malate is in a 2:1 ratio of the amino acid citrulline and malic acid. Although highly popular many supplements only contain a couple of grams at best, science says much more is needed; in fact you need 400%-800% more than most products provide. Muscle Bomb delivers that dose, its 8,000mg per double serving.

    The study you need to read: J Strength Cond Res. 2010. Citrulline malate enhances athletic anaerobic performance and relieves muscle soreness. Dose used in study 8,000mg.

    Key Ingredient No.5 – Beta-Alanine 3,200mg
    Increase muscle carnosine levels with beta-alanine, increase endurance and stamina with proven doses. Scientific studies prove that 3,200mg per day significantly increases carnosine levels in muscle.

    The studies you need to read: Amino Acids. 2012 Effect of two β-alanine dosing protocols on muscle carnosine synthesis and washout. Dosage used 3,200mg. Role of beta-alanine supplementation on muscle carnosine and exercise performance. www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20479615.

    Key ingredient No.6 – L-Carnitine Tartrate 2,000mg
    Another great addition to any pre-workout regime. Carnitine is used by the body to effectively use fat for energy. However scientific studies show it has other significant actions for the athlete, a mega dose of L-carnitine tartrate restores muscles after training and increases the number of testosterone receptors in muscle.

    The study you need to read: Metabolism. 2010. L-carnitine l-tartrate supplementation favourably affects biochemical markers of recovery from physical exertion in middle-aged men and women. Dosage used 2,000mg.

    Key Ingredient No.7 – Betaine (trimethylglycine) 2,500mg
    Another one of the best sports nutrition supplements that has recently become the focus of more scientific studies because of its ability to build lean mass. It shouldn’t come as surprise by now to hear that the double dosages used are significant, often up to 500% more than the doses often found in other pre-workout products. Muscle Bomb once again delivers by supplying 2,500mg, the very same daily dose used in the study listed below. That’s why you will find a mega dose of betaine anhydrous 2,500mg.

    The study you need to read: J Int Soc Sports Nutr. 2013 Aug. Effects of betaine on body composition, performance, and homocysteine thiolactone.

    Additional ingredients: Muscle Bomb pre-workout contains additional ingredients including caffeine (caffeine version only), taurine, sodium bicarbonate, VpNOS (grapeseed and pinebark extracts), vitamin B6, folic acid and vitamin B12. All of these ingredients are added to round the product off making Muscle Bomb the complete pre-workout product that you expect from Reflex Nutrition.

  • Directions For Use

    IMPORTANT: Due to the highly potent ingredients and stimulating effects of MUSCLE BOMB we recommend that you assess your tolerance before using it as part of your training regime.

    To assess tolerance: Mix 15 g (approximately one heaped 25 ml measure†) with 300 ml of water in a shaker or blender and consume on an empty stomach. Wait 30 minutes to assess your tolerance. If appropriate, consume another 15 g serving and assess your tolerance again. Do not take a third serving.
    Recommended use based on a 75kg adult male.

    On training days: Mix 15-30 g (approximately one to two heaped 25 ml measures†) with 300-400 ml of water in a shaker or blender and consume on an empty stomach 30-40 minutes before your workout.

    On non-training days: Consider using the caffeine free version of MUSCLE BOMB. Mix 15 g (approximately one heaped 25 ml measure) with 300 ml of water in a shaker or blender. Consume on an empty stomach. Discontinue use of this product after 12 weeks of use and take a four week break before resuming use.

    The above are our recommended usage directions; you may of course mix with more liquid to reach the desired consistency and taste. Product is best consumed immediately once mixed. Do not leave mixed product to stand or leave in warm environments for extended periods. The scoop included with the product measures by volume not by weight, for precise measurements please use measuring scales. This product is sold by weight not by number of servings.

    Great pre workout but keep an eye out for the promotion when echo give away a BCAA drink for free with it - I find if I buy 2 when it's on promo I always get a freebie by the time it comes up again.

    Having tried some pre workout supplements and not really enjoyed feeling on edge I was recommended muscle bomb.

    I love that it doesn't have me feeling edgy and furthermore that doesn't lead to a nasty crash.

    Flavour could be better but that's not really important (fruit punch the best of the bunch though).

    MOST important thing is results and with Muscle Bomb I've consistently posted new PBs on all the big lifts and I just feel more "on it" in training too.

    Brilliant simply brilliant pre workout I have tracked my progress since starting using muscle bomb and lifts are getting heavier steadily and recovery improved too.

    Only loses 1 star as it gets me a bit gassy ... not so pleasant for anyone else around!

    This is the best pre workout supplement I've used and I believe on the market full stop.

    Most are just caffeine and maybe some sugar (Curse, C4, NO XPLODE etc.) but every now and then a company comes out with something different

    Muscle Bomb from Reflex just wins over the only other competitor Pre JYM from bodybuilding.com that I have also been using.

    The muscle bomb beats pre jym on not bloating me out so much and giving a better pump. Long term both have great ingredients for lasting results.

    Would recommend black cherry flavour its kinda tart but nice - avoid grapefruit **grim** haha

    5 stars!

    Wallop! This is the real deal, real doses from Reflex the company that seems to deliver more in every way. I used Muscle Bomb for 7 weeks and only use it 2x a week on days when I'm really going for it. Squats/deadlifts, the effects this stuff has is simply mind boggling, I keep smashing out more reps whilst also being able to increase the weights slightly. Amazing stuff.

    Awesome formula that has helped me smash nearly all my old PBs on big lifts. This is serious stuff with a flavour to match, I've got a friend who's on it too experiencing much the same.

    I won’t bother listing the ingredients as it’s well documented below. Good levels of the usual suspects (CM, BA). It’s nice to see a good dosage of Betaine (which works similarly to Creatine) but it’s not 100% conclusive it actually works. There’s a hefty dosage of iBCAA which is great if you’re an endurance trainee (not so much for strength)

    Nevertheless the Black Cherry mixes very well, just a couple shakes and it’s blended. It sort of looks like Cola and personally, tastes absolutely rank. I thought it had a slight fizz to it and the aftertaste was quite sickly. Also, throughout the session I don’t believe it sat in my stomach right and I was uneasy throughout the whole session. Probably the worst tasting pwo I've tried.

    I never experienced any benefits from taking this pre-workout. No additional focus, no additional strength. A little pump but nothing special.

    After reading the ingredient profile i had high hopes for this product and i wasnt disappointed. No propriety blend or underdosing. With a huge 8g of citrulline malate in a 2 scoop serving the muscle pumps were instant and long lasting. I find alot of pre-workouts underdosed when it comes to the nitric oxide ingredients but musclebomb hit my sweet spot. The taste (black cherry) was slightly bitter but not unpleasant. With 250mg of caffeine there was a nice steady energy supply which for me is enough as i dont think pre-workouts should make you feel jittery and out of breath from a racing heart. I have tried alot of pre-workouts no-xplode/no-shogun/hemo-rage etc. and Musclebomb was the best for overall musclepumps. Will be buying again. Definately recommend!!!!

    I don't usually rate preworkouts very highly as most don't seem to have much effect. This is different. I feel more focussed during workouts and I find I'm able to lift more. When I ran out and wasn't able to use it, I noticed that I was struggling to stay focussed and to lift the weight I had previously been using. I workout first thing and use the caffeine version of MuscleBomb.

    Tried a sample of Reflex Muscle Bomb.

    Reflex are known for their great quality supplements, and this is no exception. It mixes easily in a shaker and tastes good too.

    A look at the ingredients shows the quality in this pre-workout, I took it 30 mins before my leg workout and I can definitely say I felt like my legs felt more pumped than they have from any other pre-workout.

    I just found it wasn't the strongest in the energy side of things. It wasn't bad it is just not the best pre-workout I have had.

    On the plus side, I felt no post workout crash, and I would definitely recommend it.

    More of a 'formula' than a 'pre work out' - sound product.

    I find this product to be more than a 'pre work out' I found this formula to provide me with a 'mental edge' alongside with the physical benefits.
    The ingredients included provide the following -endurance, alertness, pump & the three different BCAA's alone could be used as BCAA supplement alone (in the same way, this product provides a sound daily dose of Beta Alanine)
    Obviously all pre work outs now come with caffeine but Reflex have provided customers with a caffeine free alternative for those how are sensitive. I supplemented with the caffeine formula, had a great work out and did not experience a 'crash' afterwards - always a plus.
    Overall, a great formula (not just a great pre work out) I will certainly be opting for this choice of product again.

    I received a sample of this in Black Cherry
    We all know Reflex very good make lots of good products so I was eager to try this one.
    straight away I went to the ingredients list and was pretty impressed a serving is 15g and you can have up to 2 servings so 30g.
    I had a 30g serving
    as you can see below very high does of key ingredients. I always like IBCAAs as I usually take pre workouts on a near empty stomach.
    Also no prop blend!! your getting what you see.

    iBCAA 7,000mg
    Citruline malate 8,000mg
    Beta-alanine 3,200mg
    L-Carnitine tartrate 2,000mg
    Betaine 2,500mg

    Quite low in Caffiene 250mg per 30g serving but there is also a caffien free version.
    Taste - it tasted of black cherry very pleasant mixed well no complaints.
    Effectiveness.
    I took this as always 30 mins before my workout . I felt the beta alanine kick in and I got the face flush tingles.
    I really think the high doses of citruline malate gave a good pump with this i was focused . Arms felt very full I did full resistance workout and I think this helped. Could really notice a difference.
    I like Muscle Bomb and I like the ingredients . Id recommend this.

    I had the Black Cherry flavour.
    This is a tangy, zingy, zappy flavour! It's sweet enough but a little sweeter would be nice for me. Of course taste is subjective.
    The was a bit of foam on this drink but no biggy really.
    The sample packet came in a 2 serving size and as I'm used to stims I wasn't putting half of this away for later.
    This preworkout is 60% protein! Usual for a preworkout I think! Mainly coming from BCAAs. The usual suspects are in there, Citrulline Malate, Beta-Alanine, L-Taurine, Caffeine Anhydrous VIT B6, B12 all in decent doses except maybe taurine. Also some new-to-me ingredients in here too; Proanthocyanidins, Pteroylmonoglutamic Acid, Methylcobalamin. Will google them shortly...
    As mentioned I'm quite used to stimulants/preworkouts and had planned to take a long break but the opportunity to these Muscle Bomb came along and I was on it!

    Had this on an empty stomach and as suspected the 3.2g of Beta Alanine had me itching before long. Plenty of water and straight into the workout usually helps and that's what I did.

    To be fair my workouts are never too long as I try to train 6 days a week and I aint getting any younger so I can't judge this on any endurance, stamina benefits but I did have a good workout and energy was good given I was up at 5:30am and training at 6am!

    Muscle Bomb comes in a 600g size so depending on whether you have 1 or 2 servings per workout this will last for 40 or 20 workouts. Price is reasonable imo at £33.29p dropping to £31.49p with Echo's Multi Buy option.

    I'd recommend this product.

    Reflex have delivered yet another great product. First of it mixes great & the taste is really nice although it can be a little sour. That could be down to the amount of water I used. Just be careful when you open your shaker after mixing it as it gases up quite a bit & lets of an explosion noise. I took this first thing in the morning & by the time I got to the gym 20-25 minutes it was starting to kick in. I felt a great amount of energy levels during my leg workout & gave me concentration levels I hadn't experienced with other brands. With each 30g serving you get a great amount of key ingredients.

    BCAA 7g
    Citruline Malate 8.1g
    Beta-alanine 3.2g
    L-Carnitine Tartrate 2g
    Betaine 2.5g

    Which in my opinion is one of the best in the market!

    REFLEX MUSCLE BOMB BLACK CHERRY.

    REFLEX YOUR NEXT......

    TASTE: As soon as you open the packet you get this mega strong cherry smell ive never really noticed any thing with such a strong smell as this its like opening a bag of haribos. When mixed its goes as you would expect a dark cherry colour & as for the taste this is as close to cherry as you would expect its a very deep strong cherry taste in fact its tastes just like cherry coke a cola REFLEX you have got this cherry flavour nailed here well done.

    MIXABILITY: Again & i always say this 15g of powder is nothing to mix & this does mix very well as in there is no gritty bits left over BUT this does foam up a fair bit but we can expect this a lot of other pre workouts do the same iam happy here REFLEX

    EFFECT: As i always do i take this soon as i wake up 7am so yeah its does effect me a little more. I felt great was talking to every 1 in the gym i didnt feel stimmed out my head & there was no crash after either had a real good workout fair play REFLEX i know you reading this you have a very good product & every 1 will like this.

    PROFILE: Just what every 1 likes to see here NO PROP BLEND they give us the exact amounts of every thing here & we get some right goodies & if you take the full 30g serving you get a massive 8g CITRULLINE MALATE. So lets take a look at what we have in MUSCLE BOMB

    VITAMIN B6 0.6mg As we all know this forms part of 8 water soluble vitamins which complete vitamin b group. Vitamin b6 helps the enzymes present in our bodies to perform different functions inside the body cells.

    FOLIC ACID 300ug Again another water soluble vitamin & derives its name from from the latin word folium meaning leafs. Folic acid is necessary for the healthy development of our cells.

    VITAMIN B12 9.4ug B12 helps in the production of healthy red blood cells that carry oxygen around the body.

    CITRULLINE MALATE 4g a combination of the amino acid Citrulline and the organic salt Malate, this massive 3g dose increases blood flow resulting in huge muscle pumps as well as transporting hydrogen ions away from the working muscle resulting in greater endurance.

    BETA ALANINE 1.6g As we all know this is what gives us the tingles beta alanine is the ultimate endurance ergogenic aid. By moping up hydrogen ions beta alanine prevents the build-up of lactic acid in working muscles meaning you can hit your failure point after more reps than ever before.

    CAFFEINE 125mg We all know what this is i dont think i need to explain!!! & if you do go for the 2 scoops ull get 250mg

    BETAINE ANHYDROUS 1.3g This is a chemical which occurs naturally in the body & it may sound the same BUT this has nothing to do with BETA ALANINE. Specifically betaine is a derivative of choline Choline is a lipotropic this helps in fat loss.

    Then we come in to the AMINO ACIDS.

    L LEUCINE 1.7g, ISOLEUCINE 0.9g, L VALINE 0.9g We all know these are the 3 BCAA"S which our body cant produce so we need to get them in our selfs. L LEUCINE has become more & more used these days every 1 seems to be adding this to there PWO shakes. More info can be found here
    http://www.poliquingroup.com/articlesmultimedia/articles/article/1088/ten_benefits_of_bcaas.aspx



    L CARNITINE L TARTRATE 1g This is in every thing to do with losing fat Carnitine has an essential role in transporting fat into mitochondria the furnace of the cell. Therefore, carnitine has been marketed as a fat burning supplement.

    L TAURINE 0.5g no pre-workout formula is complete without taurine, and for good reason, with benefits that include super-hydrating muscle cells, improving brain function and preventing cramps, our huge 3g dose ensures you get the most taurine has to offer.

    We do get 9g protein per 15g serving & 18g per 30g serving as for the carbs per 15g serving we get 4.5g of whch are sugars 0.8g & then 9g per 30g serving & 1.6g sugars.

    OVERALL: As always REFLEX live up to there name here with another top product with a very good profile. Now its 40 servings per tub but thats 15g scoops & for the hardcore fans who will go for the 30g serving make that 20 servings for £33.29 or with ECHO multibuy £31.49 again REFLEX like 2 other companys that i know of are doing this single scoop or double scoop which can take it down to 20 servings a tub still can last you over a month. Again we pay for what we get here as for a lot of us dont mind payig for just that. This does come in 3 tasty sounding flavours

    This is a great pre workout from reflex. I was a big fan of their performance matrix but this knocks it out of the park. Firstly, the flavour (black cherry) overall isn't amazing, but you don't really expect that with ingredients packed in at top levels like this. Who really drinks it for the flavour? It isn't unpleasant, but isn't delicious either, but perfectly ok.

    A full 30g serving gives you a real top whack of citrulline, a decent hit of beta alanine, leucine, betaine, and further on taurine, L-carnitine. It's a nice blend of power/strength enhancing, pump inducing (without going overboard), stimulating (without being sick from the caffeine intake) and fatigue reducing, proven ingredients. You'd expect nothing less, and they don't really disappoint, except possibly the lower end taurine content and use of maltodextrin (which is a bit cheap).

    Well worth the money, well worth trying, and you'll be impressed if you're not looking for something that will give you a bigger buzz than a wasps nest in your pants. 4.5/5 and rounded up to the full 5 stars.

    Muscle bomb is a new one from Reflex. I've previously used Performance Matrix and Nos Fusion and both are decent products. Muscle Bomb is going along with a more targeted offering here I feel and it is brilliant to finally see a pre workout with a proper dose of citrulline malate if you go for the full 2 scoop serving. I often make my own pre workouts from raw ingredients simply because CM, BA and BCAA's are almost always under-dosed in others. This is the first that has them in the levels I would use myself. Caffeine is reasonable at 250mg and the addition of Betaine Anhydrous again in a good serving is welcome. The one criticism on the ingredients is the low level of taurine. If they had bumped this up to 3g's then it would almost be my perfect pre-workout (on paper).

    I went for the Black Cherry flavour - not one I'd seen in a pre before and I do have to say the smell of the powder is very off-putting. Fortunately the taste once mixed is actually really quite nice. A little bitter, but I like that as opposed to something overly sweet. Watch out when you mix it though as gas builds up in the shaker and I lost some due to it exploding out when I opened the cap! It creates a lot of froth, so it's a good idea to let it settle and add more water as required.

    The results from this were as I would expect. Strength was there, pumps were pretty good (quadzilla squat day + gunz) and I was able to PR on my AMRAP set of fronts. Despite the lack of a big serving of taurine (which goes well with CM) vascularity was decent and long lasting (several hours). It doesn't blow your head off and I would perhaps have liked a little more "get up and go", but that isn't really the focus of this product. It's all about setting you up for a good session with plenty of support as the sets go on. A good product which I will likely buy again (and perhaps just add a bit more taurine to).
