Bang® Master Blaster® is not your typical peak-and-crash pre-workout drink that leaves you exhausted and barely able to finish your second set of leg curls. If you’ve ever had a Bang® energy drink you know that Bang is a different kind of company. We’re not interested in saying we have the best energy drinks and sports supplements in the world while offering buy-one-get-one specials at the local Kwik-E-Mart — we’re interested in PROVING it.
That’s why Bang® Master Blaster® has undergone not one, but two, university studies to verify its effectiveness. And the results were what we and our customers have come to expect — outstanding!
- One serving of Bang® Master Blaster® increased serum IGF-1 by 12.3% compared with placebo.
- One serving of Bang® Master Blaster® increased serum growth hormone (GH) by 189% compared with placebo.
- One serving of Bang® Master Blaster® improved vertical jump by an average of 2.2 cm (almost a full inch), or 3.7%.
- One serving of Bang® Master Blaster® improved leg extension endurance by an average of 2.4 repetitions or 11.7% (at 70% of one-rep maximum).
In a one-month study, the results were even more astounding:
- Up to 6.9-pound increase in lean muscle.
- Up to 22.5-pound improvement in the bench press.
- Up to 52.5-pound increase in the squat.
So, do yourself a favor: Give your current pre-workout to someone you don’t like very much and grab a container of Bang® Master Blaster® instead. You won’t be sorry you did!

What are BCAAs?
Branched-chain amino acids, or BCAAs, consist of three essential amino acids — leucine, isoleucine and valine — and have been shown to increase muscle growth and prevent muscle wasting. Although BCAAs can be found in whey protein, there’s a strong case to be made for taking them separately as well. A 2017 study noted that people who consumed 5.6 grams of BCAAs after their resistance workouts had a 22% greater increase in muscle protein synthesis compared to those who did not. What’s more, there are numerous other studies illustrating that BCAA supplements inhibit muscle protein breakdown, commonly known as muscle wasting or atrophy.
BCAAs also reduce muscle soreness after workouts and fatigue during exercise.
Citrulline malate benefits
Those familiar with the old “Saturday Night Live” bit featuring two mythical Austrian bodybuilders named Hanz and Franz are well aware of the “pump.” Simply put, it refers to the temporary increase in muscle size that is achieved when blood enters the muscles faster than it can exit, as is often the case when one lifts weights — particularly when doing more reps with shorter rest times between sets.
It also has a satisfying mental effect as well.
“The greatest feeling you can get in a gym or the most satisfying feeling you can get in the gym is the pump,” said Arnold Schwarzenegger in the cult classic “Pumping Iron”.
Citrulline malate, which is found in Bang’s Master Blaster®, is believed to widen blood vessels and that’s why so many people love it — it helps one achieve a pump. Now, whether those pumps lead to greater muscle growth has been hotly debated. A 2010 study says yes, a 2018 study says no. Still, the mental aspect cannot be underestimated. Plus, there are other benefits to citrulline malate:
- It has been shown to increase the production of growth hormone after exercise. (Human growth hormone, or HGH, is instrumental in muscle growth, strength and athletic performance. It is also extremely helpful in aiding one recover from injuries and diseases.
- Studies indicate it increases oxygen in the muscles themselves, which — at least theoretically — should improve athletic performance.
- Because it dilates the blood vessels and promotes better blood flow, it may lower blood pressure.
