Gen-Tec TR3 is a post workout recovery protein supplement.
It is manufactured by Gen-Tec, an Australian manufacturer created by bodybuilder Nick Jones.
TR3 is a 50:50 post workout protein and carb replacement product.
Whey Protein Isolate
Whey protein is a fast absorbing proteins that comes from cow’s milk.
It has been shown to enhance muscle hypertrophy and repair after a workout (1).
Whey Protein Isolate has been refined in order to further speed up the absorption of protein. This protein has also been hydrolyzed, which further breaks it down.
In each serve you get 35 grams of protein.
A proprietary blend of maltodextrin, fructose and dextrose monohydrate delivers fast acting carbs.
This blend will fast track glucose to the depleted muscle cell post workout.
Maltodextrin is a high glycemic index carb that provides quick-release energy.
Fructose provides an insulin spike, which speeds up the transportation of creatine in the muscle cell (2).
Dextrose is a single chain carbohydrate which is quickly absorbed by the body.
There are 36 grams of carbs in each serve.
Creatine increases the production of ATP energy within the muscle cell.
This allows you to boost your training strength, power and endurance (3).
You get 3 grams of creatine per serve.
The branch chain amino acids (leucine, valine and iso-leucine) are the most potent muscle building amino acids (4).
BCAA’s prevent the breakdown of muscle, limit cortisol production and speed up recovery time.
Glutamine is an amino acid which transports nitrogen to our muscles.
Nitrogen is essential to put you in anabolic state after training (5).
Each serve gives you 7 grams of glutamine.
Who Takes it?
Gen-Tec TR3 is taken by hard training men and women who are intent on building muscle mass.
How to Take it
Take one serving immediately after your workout.
Mix 4 scoops (80g) in 350 mls of water and mix well.
There are no side effects associated with this product.
- Delicious flavors
- Mixes well
- High BCAA and Glutamine levels
- Not enough dextrose at just 5% of the carb blend
Gen-Tec TR3 provides a great mix of protein and carbs for muscle growth and recovery.
This quickly drives insulin, creatine and BCAAs into the muscle cell. The result is an increased level of anabolic drive.
At $4 per serve, however, this is an expensive product.
