STRENDURO Questions Answered
Hydroxy Methyl Butyrate (HMB) is a molecule found in normal body biochemistry that occurs naturally as a metabolite (break-down product) of the Branched-Chain Amino Acid (BCAA) Leucine. When muscles do work, Leucine breaks out of muscle protein and is metabolized into HMB, which returns to the muscle cell machinery with an ingenious signal that muscular breakdown should be limited and rebuilding enhanced. Thus, HMB acts as “Leucine support” and is a critical component of recovery in the endurance athlete. Whether “massive gains” are achieved is dependent on workout, overall diet, and a hundred other factors. At Strenduro, we focus on supporting strong endurance, not physique.
Creatine is a naturally-occuring biochemical that your body produces and it is not a synthetic anabolic steroid, and it is also not a SARM. It is made from the amino acids Arginine, Glycine and Methionine. It is not involved in muscle growth and repair signaling. It is responsible for maintaining stable pH in working muscle, managing acid by scavenging phosphate and recycling ATP.
The primary bitterness is caused by Calcium HMB. It is somewhat unavoidable, but we have done probably 150 flavor experiments over 13 months to find the right combination and amount of bitter blocking agents to keep it tame. As mentioned on the label, make it up in a 10+ ounces of beverage, take a swig and hold it for a few seconds until the bitter blocker molecules can find your tongue receptors, then enjoy the rest of your drink. See the (coming soon) Recipes section where we note that chocolates (Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Whey), coffees (Frappucino), and sweet things (any Raw CBUM Itholate) seem to hold it down pretty well. We even tried it in ramen and miso soup to good effect. We made it neutral to try to go with anything. Other companies add acid to fight the bitter and usually add sour fruity to it…which tastes 100% horrible with any usual whey or egg proteins.
We get this question a lot and it is because the formulation is dedicated to power endurance (StrenDuro), not efficiency. This is why we focus on water polo for swimmer types where explosive force is needed on top of long endurance. You are of course welcome to try the formula and see if it applies to you, but we don’t want to make promises or waste anybody’s time.
A lot of bodybuilders have a set routine they prefer but high-rep work-to-failure is a technique advocated by only a few like Ryan Humiston. The difference in those who simply manage their muscle acid buildup through phosphate scavenging (Beta-Alanine and Creatine), and those who use Strenduro, is the recovery component of HMB. High-reps with high recovery potential is better than just gaining through rep-damage alone.
