Dynamic Muscle Builder Review
Here's what I think of Weider's Dynamic Muscle Builder.
Dynamic Muscle Builder is a protein powder produced by Weider Fitness who's founders are Joe and Ben Weider. I'm sure most of you know who the Weider's are.
If you don't know who they are, Joe and Ben Weider have been around the muscle scene since the early days.
When it comes to fitness supplements, the Weider's basically had that market cornered up until the late 80's.
At that time, their big sellers were the Dynamic Muscle Builder and weight gain shakes.
Actually, I think my very first protein supplement was actually Weider's Dynamic Muscle Builder. Wow, that brings back some bad memories of standing at my kitchen sink trying to choke down this stuff!
Alright, what is Weider's Dynamic Muscle Builder like? Well, it's not all that great.
It might have been great back in 1985 but today, your better off going to your local bulk food store and buying 2 pounds of whey protein. Back in it's heyday, the Dynamic Muscle Builder was the only thing around. I remember having no other choice than to buy this protein powder because it was the only thing I had available.
I'm looking at the formula and ingredients now and you know what? It hasn't changed all that much from the early to mid 80's. It still uses crappy soy protein as it's main protein source! Soy protein is a sub par protein (in terms of building muscle), that tastes absolutely horrible.
Anyways, the protein per serving is dismal. At 17 grams of protein per serving (according to the package directions), it is not nearly enough for most hard working weight trainers, even as a post workout drink. I would say that if you weighed about 200 pounds, you would need at least 40 grams of protein for every meal.
The Dynamic Muscle Builder comes in a 1.2 pound container. Each serving is 3 scoops of protein powder which is about 45 grams. There is about 500 or so grams in each Dynamic Muscle Builder container, so, in order to get 40 grams of protein per serving, you would get about 12 or so servings with each container of Dynamic Muscle Builder. According to the directions, you should consume anywhere from 1 to 3 servings per day. So, if you consumed 40 grams of protein powder per serving, you would get the following:
At 1 serving per day, you get 12 days worth of protein powder;
This is horrible! It might be ok if you weighted a 100 pounds or less but for anyone who weights more is going to need a lot more protein and carbs with each serving. At 17 grams of protein per serving and 21 grams of carbs, it is not even being close to meeting the needs of your average hard working weight trainer.
I certainly don't recommend you choose Weider's Dynamic Muscle Builder as a possible protein source. It tastes horrible, it uses sub par muscle building protein, it is not cost effective, and it's just plain useless.
Do yourself a favour and buy something that works for your money. There are just too many better choices than Weider supplements. If your looking for a good protein powder and don't have access to a health food store, order online. Here are some great protein powders:
If your looking for a great meal replacement try taking a look at the following sources:
There's a bunch of protein powders that are far superior to Weider's Dynamic Muscle Builder. You can get a much better source of protein and carbs, in much better combinations, that tastes a lot better than Weider's out of date, Dynamic Muscle Builder.
All the best,
