I'd go with Musclean, as the support formula will go a long way.
OR, you could go with Now 7-Keto and stack it with another fat burner.

Think Now 7-Keto with RPM which I am using now would be sufficient or could RPM and Musclean be used together?

I do plan on running them together, just gotta get some Musclean up in here. Beverly has a buy 2 get 1 free thing.... order more than $87 and get a t-shirt free. Not bad....

I assume you got my PM.... you'll be fine so don't stress. Might wanna start a bit lower and work in over the course of the first week or so.
I can take RPM and go to bed..... stims don't phase me. lol Someone not used to stim products might get a beatdown from a Musclean/RPM stack.

Shred-XS by Millennium Sport Technologies may be worth looking at. As a formula, it contains 7-Keto-DHEA as well as other impressive fat-burning compounds. In any case, a combo is, in general, usually preferable to a stand-alone.Originally Posted by fatburner2007;

Not to mention Cha’ de Bugre. In my eyes, these compounds, in combination, turn out to make Shred-XS one of the most complete fat-loss formulations around. For the price at NutraPlanet, it is a solid deal.
I am not sure, though, how much 7-Keto-DHEA is included in Shred-XS. Available clinical studies appear to have used 200mg daily to generate the fat-burning results. This would imply, that you would have to ingest 6 capsules of 7-Keto-MuscLean to benefit from the desired full-impact of 7-Keto-DHEA.
Whatever choice you make, good luck with your goal.
You might want to summarize your experience with the formula you end up using (or are currently using) in a future thread contribution.

Shred-XS is definately a more complete product being that it is thermogenic, thyrogenic and adaptogenic. In essence the only similarities are the are the 7-Keto and green tea extract. We are actually dropping the 7-oxo dhea out of Shred-XS and replacing it with more Coleus Forskohlii and 3,5,diiodo-l-tyrosine. We feel this actually makes the product more effective as a fat burning agent.
We do have a new purely Thyrogenic formula coming out soon that is very strong if you are looking for something purely thyrogenic and non stim.

I do not pretend to be an expert, and definitely not challenging your formulation decision. I just thought retaining 7-OXO-DHEA, a clinically proven fat-burner, and upping Coleus Forskohlii might be superior to dropping 7-OXO-DHEA entirely. It was in fact that combination of 7-OXO-DHEA and Coleus Forskohlii, in addition to the Brazilian fat-burning phenomenon and other thermogenics, adaptogenics and antioxidants, that attracted me to Shred-XS in the first place. Is the 7-OXO-DHEA trade-off really necessary? If yes, would there still be a version with 7-OXO-DHEA?

We've opted to put 7-oxo in a stand alone thyrogenic product in a more effective clinical dose.
The key to the Shred-XS blend is synergy of the ingredients. We wanted a nearly 1:1:1 ratio of Thermogenic, Thyrogenic to Adaptogenic ingredients to provide balance. I feel we've kept that balance while making the product work better.
Thanks for everyone's support!

Can wait to try Shred-XS Hardcore. In the meantime, going to go with Musclean and interested in hearing from others who have used the product.

Thanks, Matt for the clarification. I now understand the justification for the 7-OXO-DHEA - Coleus Forskohlii trade-off. I agree 50mg of 7-OXO-DHEA per serving would never replicate the results from clinical trials (with 200mg per day), making its role in the current formula (at 50mg per dose) sub-optimal. More-than-doubling Forskolin is a good move.
It is also convincing that increasing Coleus Forkohlii (and, therefore, fortifying the thyrogenic aspects of the formula), and retaining the adaptogenic and antioxidant properties of the formula should give Shred-XS Hardcore an even better edge over most of the others.
By the way, I wanted to buy Coleus Forskohlii as a stand-alone, but this would not be necessary anymore, as Shred-XS Hardcore should provide a sufficient amount.
It should be a worthwhile experience to try a sample of the product, once this option is available.
Overall, I applaud your courage to keep improving your products, even if the existing formulations are still miles away from much of the pack. Solid business model and a good way to build lasting product differentiation and a strong competitive advantage versus the rest. Keep it up.

I'm sorry fellas, I may not have clarified this but the change in coleus and 7-oxo is to the regular Shred-XS formula. The Shred-Hardcore is a completely different formula altogether. It incorporates a higher stimulant content and double the adaptogenic content than Shred-XS and does not include any thyrogenic ingredients other than Ashwagandha. We gave the Hardcore version more of a stimulating kick while providing the adrenals comparable protection.
I'm sorry I didn't clarify that in my earlier posts. The Shred-Hardcore is for those who want a higher stimulant product but still need adaptogenic protection. We developed the stand alone full potency thyrogenic product to accompany the Shred-Hardcore as a suitable stack as well.
Thanks again for the kind words and support!

Started 7-Keto MuscLean yesterday at 2 caps in the morning and 3 caps before workouts, with 2 RPM in the late morning and 3 RPM with preworkout.
Looking for feedback from others who have been using 7-Keto MuscLean.
