"Ever since I began competing in 2010, I have taken HMB. It is one of the few supplements I use, and the one I believe most strongly in. I have a small frame by nature, and so any muscle I build I don’t want to lose. I earned my Pro status in 2011, and was involved in an extremely traumatic moped vs. auto accident and nearly lost my legs. My fitness journey has been challenging, and if it weren’t for HMB I believe I would have lost significantly more muscle. Although I was on the couch for 3 months, I was able to maintain my arm and core muscles thanks to HMB and mini workouts with dumbbells off the side of the couch.

I recently had 2 additional surgeries to remove the hardware in each leg. And once again, HMB helped save my physique. Working out my legs was nearly impossible and with the surgeon hesitant and very persistent in not allowing me to do any cardio; I knew the chance of losing lean muscle mass in legs was possible, but through both surgeries and recovery I did not lose much, if any noticeable amount of lean mass in my legs thanks to HMB."
