Maximuscle Cyclone is probably the UK's biggest selling "sports" supplement from the UK's most readily available and most advertised brand - Maximuscle. That said, although heavily promoted, Maximuscle Cyclone is not really over hyped, at least not compared to our US products. Simply, the Maximuscle Cyclone supplement stack - protein, creatine, glutamine, HMB, Beta-Ecdysterone - is a sensible one for general sports athletes to use during a strength gain/ muscle building training routine and probably why Maximuscle Cyclone has been around for so many years and why so many other supplement brands have cloned it. With this in mind (other supplement manufacturers offering a copy), it should be pointed out that there are equivalent products readily available at a cheaper price. Better still, you can create your own supplement stack at a fraction of the price again.
With a product like Maximuscle Cyclone, it stands to reason that having multiple ingredients of benefit/ potential benefit is going to have a greater overall effect. Remember though, Maximuscle Cyclone is primarily a protein supplement. Protein's main function is repair and growth of tissue (MUSCLE), so increasing protein consumption proportionately with your exercise level & intensity far outweighs the benefits of the other key supplement ingredients. That said, the introduction of creatine, alongside an increase of protein, is also a sensible measure during a strength gain phase. I would also suggest an increase of carbohydrates during this phase to help fuel your workouts, but this can generally be achieved easily through normal food intake.
I (Gym P.) have mentioned many times how your diet should coincide with your training transition in order to achieve best results & supplementing is just a convenient method of achieving this. It also proves a popular means for supplement brands to create and sale a product/s aimed toward a specific goal, sport or endeavor.
So, in short, Maximuscle Cyclone is a sensible stack during a strength gain gym routine. However, it's expensive, so, if money's a factor, remember the stack of ingredients more so than the brand name itself.
