How HMB Can Help You Build Strength

We’re all looking for that edge when it comes to strength training. 

This is where HMB comes in, an incredibly well-researched supplement that can help you build muscle and increase your overall strength.

What is HMB? 

HMB (β-Hydroxy β-Methylbutyrate) is made naturally in the body by breaking down the amino acid Leucine. 

It’s stored in the muscles and used to build, maintain, protect, and repair muscle cells.

Your body produces about 1g/day which is topped up by HMB containing foods like fish, grapefruit and alfalfa.  

Research shows that an additional ~3g/d HMB can impact strength and muscle mass, endurance performance, and even help us maintain muscle as we age without exercising.

What does HMB do for muscles? 

HMB works by slowing muscle protein breakdown and speeding up protein synthesis in repair. It’s also a vital structural component used to maintain the integrity of muscle cell membranes, preventing them from damage. The main theory behind HMB is that it reduces the muscle damage you experience when you push your body in training. This means you need less recovery time and can train more frequently at higher intensity.

How does HMB help you build strength?

Training for strength and power can put a lot of stress on muscle cells, causing damage and soreness that you need to recover from before continuing your training effectively. 

HMB is a perfect supplement for an athlete looking to improve their strength and power based performance. This is because it allows you to push your body harder and you’ll be back the next day with less soreness, ready to train again. The result is you adapting faster to the training you’re doing. 

More time training = more strength gained

Lean Muscle vs Muscle Mass

HMB isn’t just beneficial for strength and power-biased athletes. Endurance athletes or anyone not looking to gain overall mass can supplement HMB on it’s own with Blonyx HMB Sport

Combining HMB and Creatine for further strength and muscle gain

For those looking to build that extra muscle mass can look to Blonyx HMB+ Creatine. Research has shown that combining the two supplements further increases strength improvements.

Creatine acts as a very rapid, but limited source of energy for very high intensity muscle contractions and is one of the most trusted and proven strength building supplements on the market today. This will help you perform those high intensity movements which are key for building muscle and strength. 

The only downside to using creatine is that it can increase muscle water weight, which isn’t desirable for athletes that need to maintain body weight. 

But not all HMB supplements are created equally. Take a look at the difference choosing a research-based company makes and why you should choose Blonyx HMB+ Creatine.

Beta Alanine

Great product, I just wish it would come with a flavoured option so I didn't have to mix it with other stuff.

I think the world is ready for a carb + beta alanine product for people seriously into training.

Blonyx S15 Men's Shirt - Charcoal

Great fit and design, isn't heavy when working out, colour and print havn't faded despite a ton of washes! Perfect!

Egg White Protein

Absolutely love it, going back and just tasting my old protein I could taste the additives and the extras pumped into it. Would be interested to taster another flavour but love the subtle chocolate flavour - I have it every morning mixed with banana and it’s delicious

Love it

What I like most about this is it is ‘clean’. No fillers. Simple basic ingredients. A good dietary sup to help me meet my daily macro goals. I’ve used a lot of protein powders thru the years and this by far is the best tasting and pure I’ve had.

A simple but seriously good product

I have been taking creatine for years, and was told about HMB+ by my coach. An absolute game changer. Never noticed a difference like this from a supplement. Nice work Blonyx! I'm trying the beta alanine too.
