Bodybuilding Supplements Reviews – Ripped Fuel

October 23rd, 2008 · 6 Comments

You train hard every day; do your cardio workout at least twice a week not to mention the abs exercises. You have a well balanced diet, avoid sweets as much as possible and after all that sacrifice you still can’t get rid off that extra bit of fat.

It is time to start thinking about a fat burner or weight management supplement as some people like to call it, to help you burn that unwanted fat.

Today in our bodybuilding supplements reviews section we’ll be reviewing one of the oldest fat burners around, the Ripped Fuel.

Ripped Fuel is made by Twinlab and there are 4 different types, they differ in thermogenic factors and dosage of ingredients but all of them are formulated to burn calories, reduce body fat while preserving lean mass without making use of Ephedra.

First in the family is the original Ripped Fuel, a metabolic enhancer and thermogenic fat metabolizer including bitter orange fruit extracts, St John’s Wort combined with Guarana Extract and L-Phenylalanine. Suggested use is 2 capsules before each meal and do not exceed 6 capsules a day.

Then we have Ripped Fuel Extreme, this one contains a combination of ingredients specially formulated to target stubborn fat and a Patented Herbal weight loss ingredient combined with Green Tea Leaf Caffeine and Cocoa. Do not exceed 4 capsules a day.


Ripped Fuel 5X is the strongest of all Ripped Fuels, it has a concentrated formula with 5 mechanisms to enhance your weight loss program, 1 burn calories faster, 2 preserves lean muscle, 3 Enhances nutrient absorption, 4 Reduces body Fat and 5 Increase energy levels. With Ripped 5X only two capsules daily will do the job.

The newest member of the family is the Ripped Fuel Xtendr, it is developed to counterattack your body’s natural tendency to keep unhealthy fat, amplify calorie burn, boost energy while it maintain full thermogenic effect after 8 weeks. Recommended use is a maximum of 6 capsules daily.

All the products from the Ripped Fuel Family are not recommended for use by persons under age 18 and you should always consult your physician before use.

If you used this supplement before, share you experiences with others and help other make the right choice.

That is it for today and keep coming back for more bodybuilding supplements reviews here at Workout Planet.

    I tell ya! I have always been against fat burners. I’m very sensitive when it comes to the heart pump & obsessed with a healthy lifestyle. I took the original ripped fuel a few years ago for 1 week & by the 7th day I was so wired, I had all the side effects so I stopped taking it. I’m not a sod pop or coffee drinker so caffeine is something I’m not use to so yea! so I feel the caffeine kick in even at 100mg within 10 minutes. I recently tried 5X, this one didn’t cause any side effects even the 2 pills a day worked. I lost 1/2 inch off my waist in a day so something is going on there. My suggestion is, if your sensitive to caffeine, only take ripped fuel or others like it before exercise & only before exercise. There is no need to take it any other time. For one, it will jump start the metabolism, if you do intervals taking , wait 2 hours before eating to boost growth hormone, you will find you go to bed on fire meaning your body temp is still on fire. Drink plenty of water to cook it down, make sure its cold water. This will cool the body meaning the body must work harder to warm up the body again & expand more calories to so. If your obese, keep exercise basic otherwise you will risk damaging the heart muscles unless your in shape with high intense exercise + ripped fuel. Also make sure, when you do exercise high intense you monitor your heart rate so it doesn’t reach what you would normally do in a sprint or 80-90% of energy depending on your health. This is the purpose of intervals with ripped fuel, it allows the heart muscle to drop a bit while at a slower pace then once it settles back to range, do another interval. If the pump gets to high like 5 beats over your goal then rest with slow cardio for every minute your off which is 5 minutes in this case before doing the next interval. Good luck!!!

    Thanks , I have recently been looking for information about this subject for ages and yours is the greatest I have came upon so far. But, what concerning the conclusion? Are you positive concerning the source?

    I’d say check with your GP first, it is a strong fat burner and it could cause heart aritmia.
