100% Essential? No. An extra tool to help you achieve your goals? Absolutely. Let's talk supplements for your diet and training.
For me, I've been using "bodybuilding-esque" supplements since I was in college, started out with the standards that you could find at GNC or whatever big sale Bodybuilding.com was having. As I started to dive deeper into the fitness industry I tried SO MANY different products, found some that I loved but never felt truly connected to a brand until I found Max Effort. Growing up in small town Ohio, I've followed Cory Gregory (Max Effort co-owner) for a long time and always felt like I could relate to his upbringing, mindset, and approach to fitness.
I'm a trainer, coach and workout junkie - my second home is the gym. My goals, habits, actions, and daily schedules revolve around how to optimize my training sessions in order to build my physique and mind into the absolute best version of myself possible. Max Effort Muscle is a brand I trust and believe in to make sure I am able to fuel my body to perform and recover at my max.
At Max Effort Muscle you can purchase single products and pre-made supplement stacks but what I think makes them unique is that you are able to build your own stack: Regular Stack (3 products + 1 free promo item) OR an XL Stack (5 products + 1 free promo item). Checkout my favorites below!
Please reach out to me if you have any questions regarding MaxEffort Muscle supplements and I'll help you pick out what to include in YOUR XL Sack #whatsinyoursack
My Go-To Training Supplements:
If you don't already know, training is something important to me so I take my training supplements very serious. These two supplements fuel me exactly how I need to give my maximum effort every training session.
MAX EFFORT MUSCLE PRE-WORKOUT
"Max Effort Muscle’s Pre Workout is here to intensify your training to a whole new level. Max Effort Muscle's Pre Workout is loaded with clinically tested ingredients such as Citruline Malate and Agmatine Sulfate for insane pumps, enhanced N.O. production, and increased blood flow.

Pina Colada, Sour Gummy and Raspberry Punch are my favorite flavors!
MAX EFFORT MUSCLE AMINO RECOVERY
"Post Workout is arguably the most crucial time to dial in on your recovery.
