Comments
This is a commonly recommended stack for those getting introduced to sports nutrition. This
stack seems to elicit mixed results, although I think enough people perform well enough with
it that it is worth mentioning. For HMB/arginine responsive individuals, it seems to produce a
fair gain in lean mass along with a good increase in strength, and strong vasodilation (pump)
during training.
