I am sorry to say but HMB is most likely useless in an body-building or strength lifting aspect.
HMB: no effect in human trial
HMB has virtually no effect, says meta study

I haven't used it since it first came out back in the mid 90's by EAS...didn't do a whole lot for me, except make me ~$400 lighter (by the time all was said and done)...have read that Nisslen(IA state univ) never released the patent on it and the HMB that is sold now isn't the studied form...? not sure...but think I've read maybe 1-2 reviews of people liking it over the last 1-2 years & the rest not noticing anything....I did see that holman/lawson (Ironman mag) have recently added it to their supp regime...for what that's worth....

in the 2nd of the last issue of muscluar development there's a 4 page article raving about how many benefits it provides. Ive also looked up several studies, all having good feedback. but i dont really see anyone taking the stuff, its not that popular and I wonder why......????

At standard dosing, meh.
Mega-dosed with bulk powder at 10g/day is a different story, though.

MD isnt like the other ones. It much more geared towards anabolics, research articles, testing, etc. Not saying there's no muscle tech ads but its the only fitness mag Il buy

Tried it a long time ago and saw nothing from it. EAS was the big pusher of it back in the day, but their claims were a bit silly.

i'm pretty satisfied with HMB, especially while going low carb. I've noticed my muscles (especially legs) look fuller, have more volume, as opposed to the last time I drastically reduced carbs (i was flat just after a few training sessions). +I can get away with more volume on training days and still have a very pleasant pump with just a few small amount of carbs daily. and the intra-set regeneration is on a higher level, which is great
generally speaking, one needs true HMB (there's a lot of fake powders with just the lowest testing standards (faked), mostly from china), best in powder form and the right dosages. I use 3-4g with 15g EAA prior and during workouts, and 2-3g with my pwo. one could also do pulses of BCAA+HMB inbetween meals and first thing in the morning to spike MPS levels. HMB works best in conjunction with free form leucine (one would need 200+g of leucine for the body to generate some effeicient amounts of HMB on its own)
my 2 cents
