Muscletech Hydroxycut Hardcore Elite Powder Review

Muscletech is one of the world’s best known supplement brands, and their sponsored athletes include current and former Mr Olympia’s, professional athletes and female figure competitors. They have one of the widest ranges, and some of the most popular supplements worldwide, and there’s not many bodybuilding enthusiasts who haven’t tried Nitro-Tech, Cell-Tech or Mass-Tech at some point.

It seems like the Hydroxycut range expands weekly, and another has recently been added to Muscletech’s Australian line-up. The new Hydroxycut Hardcore Elite Powder has made it down under, and aims up against the other top selling thermogenic powders in the industry (Oxyshred and Thermal XTC Powder in particular). With the trend away from capsule-based fat burners and over to fruit-flavoured thermogenic powders, Muscletech has joined Cellucor and Nutrex in reformulating their fat burners into drinkable form.

Hydroxycut Hardcore Elite Powder Key Ingredients

  • Hardcore Blend – The first blend of ingredients in Hydroxycut Hardcore Elite Powder contains three thermogenic ingredients – l-carnitine l-tartrate, caffeine anhydrous and theanine. Most people are aware of caffeine and carnitine – two of the most used thermogenic ingredients on the market. Carnitine helps the body to shuttle fat into the mitochondria to be burned for energy, while caffeine is a potent mood, metabolism and energy enhancer. Theanine is a naturally-occurring amino acid found mainly in tea, and has several mood, weight-loss and hunger benefits for those dieting.
  • Green Coffee Extract – Green coffee is one of those ‘hot’ ingredients at the moment, with emerging research showing benefits for weight loss (particularly fat loss), reduced hunger levels and antioxidant benefits.

Hydroxycut Hardcore Elite Powder Flavours & Sizes

Each tub of Hydroxycut Elite Powder is only 80g (30 serves), and comes in Fruit Punch and Lemon Lime offerings.

Hydroxycut Hardcore Elite Powder Dosage

Each serve of Hydroxycut Powder is 2.7g, which delivers 500mg carnitine, 270mg caffeine, 100mg theanine and 200mg green coffee extract. The recommended dose for weight loss is one serve before meals twice daily, with a maximum of two serves per day. This equates to 540mg caffeine, which is a fairly hefty daily intake, so be careful when taking other stimulants like coffee or pre-workouts. You can also use Hydroxycut Hardcore Elite Powder as a pre-workout – take one serve before your workout.
