What is it? Blonyx HMB + Creatine is a product that I hadn’t had any experience with until I tested it for 30 days for Grinder’s Gear Review. Without getting into all the scientific specifics (which can be found on their site) it is a protein that is mixed with a liquid and taken after workouts in order to help repair muscle tissue that breaks down when you train.
What do I think? It works. The biggest difference was how it reduced my soreness and muscle recovery time. We had done a workout that had a ton of wall-balls in it. The next day everyone was walking kind of bow-legged due to the pain their quads, hamstrings and glutes. Just like my friends, I normally get slammed by pain after a workout like that, but because I was taking the HMB, I was fine. When it arrives, it looks too small to be 30 days worth but it has a small scoop and will last the whole time.
Why do you need it? It says that it helps with repairing muscle tissues and helps you to recover and I believe after taking it for 30 days that it does what it says it supposed to do.
When should you use it? Post workout mixed with some liquid. I will say one downside is that the best way for me to take it was with some juice and that meant added sugar. When I was traveling, I couldn’t find juice at the hotel so I mixed it with coffee when it cooled. It doesn’t taste to great so you’ll want juice.
How do you get it? There are a lot of people who sell Blonyx at affiliates or independently but you can get some from their site. This amount retails for $60.
