It’s About To Get RAW…My GNC BEYOND RAW Inspired Workout
With a product line called “Beyond Raw”, I was very interested to put these GNC supplements to the test.
If you’ve been a subscriber of my LIVE LEAN TV YouTube channel, you know I’m all about training hard and eating clean/whole foods.
As you’ll see in my WORKOUT VIDEO below, these supplements didn’t inspire me to make a “safe” & “pretty” workout. No…the Beyond Raw RE-BUILT Mass Gainer, REFINE Ultra Thermogenic, and my favorite, the RAVAGE Pre-workout … made me go with a more “RAW” approach.
I said, screw the dumbbells, screw the barbells…lets get dirty with my tractor tire, sledge hammer, and of course the best piece of equipment you can have…YOUR BODY.
Did these GNC Beyond Raw supplements give me the energy, the strength, and power to get through this RAW workout?
Watch the video below!
GNC Beyond Raw Supplements – Are they worth the hype?
Well first of all let me point out that supplements are just that…supplements. You’ll never obtain your dream physique and health without following a consistent diet of whole foods. Period.
Top this off with an intense, well designed strength training & cardio workout program and you are close.
But we’re not done. Add in sufficient rest…and then sprinkle that with supplements.
Supplements are not intended to be the magic bullet. They are meant to compliment and provide an extra boost to your results.
With that said…YES…GNC Beyond Raw supplements can help you with that.
Should you be taking GNC Beyond Raw RE-BUILT MASS?
RE-BUILT MASS is a Super Mass Gainer. Each serving is packed with 850 calories including a whooping 60 grams of an Advanced Protein Complex (fast and slow releasing proteins including: whey protein concentrate, whey protein isolate, whey protein hydrolysate, micellar casein, and calcium caseinate).
GNC BEYOND RAW RE-BUILT MASS PROS:
If you’re an ectomorph/slow gainer or your goal is to pack on mass, muscle size, strength, and power, like most athletes…this mass gainer could work for you.
It’s 3 full scoops per serving also contains muscle building creatine, BCAAs, and energy boosting Beta Alanine and Arginine. It also contains fast acting carbohydrate sources via Waxy Maize and Maltodextrin. This means you not only get a great source of muscle building/recovery protein post workout, but you’ll also send those amino acids into the muscle cells more efficiently via these simple sugars. No need to add a separate sugar source post workout. Simply add to water and you’re ready to recover, repair, and grow for your next workout.
It also tastes really good. I’ve tried the Vanilla Cake Batter and Chocolate Brownie.
GNC BEYOND RAW RE-BUILT MASS CONS
This one’s obvious (and really shouldn’t even be called a con)…if your goal is strictly to lose fat, this 850 calorie per serving powder may be more than you need. Either cut back on the 3 scoop serving size or stick with another whey protein isolate that is low in fat and carbohydrates.
One other thing…since it’s 3 scoops per serving, it mixes pretty well in a shaker cup but to get the best consistent texture, use a blender.

Should you be taking GNC Beyond Raw REFINE?
GNC Beyond Raw REFINE is a thermogenic. This means it’s meant to help you burn fat more efficiently by increasing endurance, and enhancing performance.
GNC BEYOND RAW REFINE PROS
If you’re looking to lean down and reduce body fat…this guy could help you. Of course, this is not intended to be a magic pill. You need to also put in the work via a proper diet and exercise. Remember supplements are just the sprinkles on top.
This bad boy contains a blend of natural herbs to spike stamina, including Fenugreek Seed Extract, Ginger Root Extract, Grape Seed Extract, as well as Caffeine Anhydrous. It’s pretty potent.
Each serving size (3 capsules) contains about 200 mg of caffeine.
It also contains Nitric Oxide so you will feel the rush and the pump. I know I did. Get ready for VEINS!
GNC BEYOND RAW REFINE CONS
What makes this supplement a PRO, can also make it a con. If you’re already drinking a lot of caffeine, this may put you over the limit.
DO NOT exceed the recommended dosage of 3 capsules 30-60 minutes before exercise per day. I’m telling you…this stuff is potent!

Should you be taking GNC Beyond Raw RAVAGE?
GNC Beyond Raw RAVAGE is just like the name suggests. It’s a potent pre-workout supplement.
GNC BEYOND RAW RAVAGE PROS
You’re going to feel it. I know I’ve tried other pre-workouts before and felt nothing. This stuff will hit you. It’s highly concentrated and powerful. If you don’t feel like working out, this stuff will quickly give you a surge of energy to kick your butt. I also feel a heightened sense of endurance when I take this. I feel like I can workout for ever!
This product is only 15 calories and contains an Anabolic Muscle Primer mixture, Beta-Alanine, and a vasodilatation amplifier to really give you the pumps!
This is actually my favorite of the 3 GNC Beyond RAW supplements mentioned above.
GNC BEYOND RAW RAVAGE CONS
It’s potent. If you’re new to pre-workouts, you may want to start with 1/2 a scoop. This may limit the jitters you may feel as a newbie. Also, it contains caffeine so try to take it earlier in the day if you experience restless nights.

It really all depends on your goals. My goal is to maintain my current lean physique, therefore the RE-BUILT MASS is not in my everyday supplementation. However, I do use it for travel when I know I’m going to miss meals.
The REFINE and RAVAGE are more in line with my goals. Since I work hard at the gym, I’m looking for that extra boost of energy to push me through my hard sets and sprints. These guys help with that, as well as helping burn fat for energy.
Overall I Give The GNC Beyond Raw Product Line Two Sledge Hammers Up!
Just be sure to match your goals with the proper supplementation.
