The Thermogenic Blend is supposed to support fat loss and weight loss. Synephrine will increase heart rate, but it may not increase fat loss as much as Max Muscle would like the user to think. The stimulant was used to replace Ephedra when the FDA banned the ingredient, but no clinical studies have proven it can increase fat loss the way Ephedra did.
Yohimbine and caffeine are two additional stimulants. Caffeine is proven to increase metabolism, and we tend to like that ingredient in fat burners. Yohimbine has stimulating qualities, but is more often used to increase libido, not fat burn.
White willow bark is an aspirin alternative. Commonly used as part of a natural ECA stack, white willow bark may decrease pain and thin the blood. The ECA stack was a potent combination, but synephrine cannot replace Ephedra.
Green tea extract is another high point ingredient for Max Muscle Quadra Cuts Competition. However, the supplement would need to include about 350 mg to be effective and we have no idea how much of the ingredient included.
The Water Loss Support Blend includes a combination of diuretics. Diuretics are often included in fat burners to remove excess water between the skin and muscle tissue. This is how bodybuilders get that ripped look before a competition. In this case, combining stimulants which have a natural diuretic quality with strong diuretics like dandelion and uva ursi may lead to dehydration and severe muscle cramping.

We would not suggest the average dieter use Max Muscle Quadra Cuts Competition. The supplement includes too many stimulants and diuretics for safe use by the average dieter. If a bodybuilder is going to use this supplement before a competition, it may be necessary to increase water intake and start out taking the supplement with a half or quarter dose.
