What You Should Know
Chuck Iceman Liddell, a well known UFC fighter, trains constantly when preparing for his next match. With hours spent in the gym and speed being as important as strength and agility, Liddell has created a workout supplement for people who want to work as hard as a UFC fighter. Iceman RX uses the celebrity power of Liddell to promote a pre-workout and post-workout supplement. Despite the use of “RX” in the product name, this supplement is available without a prescription.
List of Ingredients
Pre Workout: Isomyosin, Zinc Methionine, Magnesium Aspartate, Pyridoxine, Tribulus Terretris Extr. 40-60%, Beta-Alanine, Chastetree 4:1, Avena Sativa 10:1, Epimedium 4:1, Eurycoma Longfolia, Caffeine, D-Ribose.
Post Workout: Isoneine, Creatine, Trace Minerals, Glutamine, Lysine, Isoleucine, Threonine, Leucine, Methionine, Valine.
The first ingredient in the Iceman RX pre-workout supplement is a bit of a mystery. The Internet has plenty of information on Isomyosin, but most if written in medical journals regarding smooth, skeletal and heart muscle. In terms of supplementing, there is not information or support. Zinc Methionine is a common food and feed additive that is often used to make feed taste better so animals will eat more and gain more weight. Magnesium Aspartate is a gentler form of magnesium which is better absorbed by the body. While most people get enough magnesium in their diet, it can be crucial in the production of energy.
Moving on to the post-workout supplement, the information is not much better. Isoneine is another ingredient with no information online. Creatine is most often taken before a workout, but this supplement includes Creatine in the post workout formula so the user would have to change powdered supplements to try out Iceman RX. Rounding out the top three ingredients are Trace Minerals which can be found in any over the counter vitamin supplement.
Iceman RX leaves much to be desired in terms of choosing the best ingredients to increase pump, energy and muscle building. Add this to the fact that there is no official website for the product and consumers may turn away quickly. One complete cycle of Iceman RX retails for $78.99 on a discount website and may cost more from other retailers. Iceman RX is to be taken as two capsules before a workout and two capsules after a workout, thus one complete cycle lasts 45 days.
- Information on the supplements is easy to find online.
- The cost is comparable to other pre-workout and post-workout supplements.
- Iceman RX does not include the most effective workout ingredients.
- No official website means consumers are forced to deal with third party retailers.
- Several of the ingredients have no information online.
- Creatine is part of the post-workout supplement when most fitness gurus take creatine before a workout.
- These supplements will not increase weight loss effectively.
- There is no fat burning or metabolism boosting ingredients.
Iceman RX is a UFC fighter’s attempt at making money on supplements. This product is full of lax ingredients and some that the consumer just has to “trust” the manufacturer has researched. On the supplement market, trust is something that is earned over time and this product is just no effective enough to earn that trust.
