Summary:

A high-quality weight loss supplement to help enhance lean muscle gains while boosting energy levels. It's extremely effective when used correctly but it's high-end price means it's certainly not for those on a budget.

Let’s face it, cutting can be a pain in the arse.

When done properly, it requires discipline, hard work, and meals so banal even Levi Roots’ special sauce couldn’t spice them up (I’m referring here, or course, to Reggae Reggae, not Jamaican man juice).

However, there are some supplements out there which can help speed up your lean muscle gains.

One such product I’ve used on numerous occasions, to great effect, is Maximuscle Promax Lean.

Product overview

Maximuscle Promax Lean is essentially a whey protein powder with some added ‘special’ ingredients to support weight loss.

The protein (about 40g per serving) comprises whey protein isolate and hydrolysed whey protein, and the extra ingredients include green tea, Guarana and CLA, all of which have been scientifically proven to boost weight loss.

It’s important to bear in mind that this product is designed to support lean muscle definition, so make sure you treat it as such.

If, between shakes, you’re wolfing down calories like Ghandi at an all-you-can-eat buffet, then this supplement is obviously not going to give you the desired results.

Taste and texture

MaxiNutrition Promax Lean ReviewIf you’re going to get this product, go for the strawberry or chocolate flavours, as they both taste great.

DO NOT get the orange flavour.

It’s just awful.

Or maybe I was just unfortunate, and the chaps at the factory were so bored one day (it’s menial work) that they started urinating into the orange batch for a laugh.

Either way, it’s not worth the risk.

In terms of texture, this supplement mixes very well, leaving no lumps or frothy bits.

Effectiveness

I’ve used Promax Lean a number of times and have always been very impressed with the results.

Obviously you need to complement this supplement with a high-protein, low-calorie diet and regular workouts.

Otherwise you’re just going to be pissing into the breeze.

But if you do use it under the proper circumstances, you’ll end up more shredded than a Julienne salad.

Value for money

Like Maximuscle Cyclone, this product is certainly not the cheapest on the market, and, in light of this, it garners a lot of flak on some bodybuilding forums.

However, in terms of quality, it cannot be faulted, and it’s very effective.

Plus, the customer service at Maximuscle is second to none.

So, if you can afford it and you’re serious about training, don’t hesitate; but if you’re strapped for cash, try a similar product from a ‘bargain basement’ supplement company such as Bulk Powders and Myprotein.

Summary

Maximuscle Promax Lean is a high-quality protein supplement which helps enhance weight loss, energy levels and lean muscle gains, helping you to become more shredded than Mrs Wolverine’s panty drawer.

It’s extremely effective, when used correctly, but it’s high-end price means that it’s certainly not for bodybuilders on a budget.

  1. I think Maximuscle could do with a re-brand, products are excellent but the livery looks a bit out-dated

    1. They obviously read this, Greg…

  2. Loooooooool!!

    “If, between shakes, you’re wolfing down calories like Ghandi at an all-you-can-eat buffet, then this supplement is obviously not going to give you the desired results.”

    ROFL!!!

    1. Clever dick copied and pasted from original review shut your fucking fat face.

      1. Paul, calm down, haha

  3. The ‘pissing in the breeze’ comment is the one that had me in stitches!!!

    Good review and very helpful, thanks!

    1. Cheers Andy 🙂

  4. Very funny review.

    I am going to purchase this supplement, sounds good, and had humour.

    1. Thanks for the kind words!

      Good luck with Promax Lean – and let us know how you get on with it 🙂

  5. Great review, love the advice on flavour lol!

  6. I am new to the supplement world but I have recently purchased this product.

    I am wondering how should I take this?

    Should I use it as a meal replacement or continue with meals?

    1. Hi Donal.

      Thanks for your comment.

      Use a shake like this as a healthy snack between meals to up your daily protein intake – or as a quick protein fix post-workout – to help your muscles repair and re-build.

      The goal is to supplement your diet with extra protein – NOT to replace meals.

      For more help, check out this article by Will – a great starting point for those new to supplementation:

      Hope that helps – let me know if you have any more questions 🙂

  7. Hi, really helpful review there, thank you.

    What do you recommend – Phd Diet Whey or this brand?

    The PHD is a lot more affordable

    1. Both are excellent quality – so go with whichever is more affordable/suits your preferences.

  8. I am a female active gym member.

    I have a few worries, I find that the Promax Lean powder is a little too expensive for me, so will be taking just the ‘lean’ powder have the same effect?

    Also, will I increase in size from taking a large amount of protein?

    Lastly, what would happen if I were to take this shake instead of a post-workout meal?

    Sorry for all the questions.

    1. Hi Dani.

      If you shop around, you’ll definitely be able to find some similar supplements that are way cheaper than MaxiNutrition.

      I’d recommend The Protein Works:

      http://www.theproteinworks.com

      Secondly, you will not get large and bulky like all those male bodybuilders you see on the advertising material, that’s a common misconception.

      Adding protein to your diet will help build lean muscle and aid recovery.

      Lastly, this won’t really make much of a difference.

      Protein shakes are often recommended post-workout as whey digests rapidly, but I would always recommend a meal over a shake wherever possible.

      Hope that helps, let me know if you have any more questions.

  9. I just picked up a kilo of this from B&M of all places for £15, so cheap enough if you find the right place.

    I put it in a Nutribullet with greens, frozen fruit and ground pumpkin seeds, hardly have to eat for the rest of the day, just my own tip.

    1. Hi Andy.

      Thanks for the heads up – there’s a B&M just up my road, so I’ll pop my head in!

  10. Hello, I’ve just started taking this alongside lifting heavy weights.

    I feel like I’ve gained a lot of muscle but not losing a lot of fat.

    I’ve been training for 6 weeks, just wondering if there is anything else to speed up burning fat?

    I work out with compound exercises 4 days on 3 days recovery.

    Thanks for your input in advance.

    1. If your goal is to lose fat, try including a few cardio sessions in your weekly regimen alongside the weight training.

      Interval training is the most effective way to increase fitness and expedite fat loss – boxing, sprint training, etc.

      I would also recommend a paleo/caveman approach to nutrition (high-protein, high-fat with a gradual reduction in carbs) as, personally speaking, I have had a great deal of success with this.

  11. Hello.

    I liked your above article.

    I was wanting a little advice… I’m 11 stone 3 lbs, 36.8% body fat, this is my 5th week of working out 5 days a week, spin for 20 min then a 30/40min weights workout inc kettle bell and free weights.

    In that time I’ve lost 2lbs, and I’m now 33.4% body fat.

    Is this good?

    I feel terrible.

    The gym said they think I’m lacking protein and skipping meals.

    My calories vary between 1,800 and 2,300 depending on work etc.

    Today I bought Slimfast for the days I’m too busy for a sit down meal and also Maxinutrition Lean 20g protein with green tea to have after my work out?

    Any help/advice would be very much appreciated as I’m losing motivation and really do feel like saying fuck it as I’ve done many times before!!!!

    1. Hi Victoria, I would say, firstly, that 5 weeks is far too short a time to expect massive results.

      Don’t buy into the “shortcut to fitness” marketing you see everywhere, results take years, not weeks.

      However, having said that, I would say, without having met you, that your gym is right, as there isn’t anything wrong with your workout routine.

      Focus on upping your daily protein intake (around 1 to 1.5g of protein per pound of bodyweight), eating lots of healthy fats (nuts, seeds, avocados, fatty fish) and getting all of your carbs from complex sources (veg, wholegrains, beans) as opposed to simple, processed sources (white bread, cereal, fruit juices).

      Supplementing with a protein shake such as this between meals can help you hit your daily protein target.

      Although it might sound counter-intuitive, you will, oftentimes, need to up your calorie intake to lose weight!

      Restricting calorie intake – especially all of a sudden – will, in simple terms, send your body into emergency mode and it will cling on to as much fat as it can store.

      I would, also, certainly advise against meal replacement shakes, as they will leave your body starved of calories and are simply not sustainable.

      Above all, don’t get despondent – keep at it, and you will see gains.

      Hope that helps a little – feel free to ask me any more follow up questions.

  12. I’m 50, female, with cfs and arthritis.

    I just started cycling to get fit and support my joints.

    Will this help my energy levels that I’m struggling with?

    1. Hi Ellie.

      If you’re using this to supplement your diet and not replace any meals, then the increased protein consumption should help with muscle repair/recovery and staving off fatigue.

      Simply put, not getting enough good quality protein in your diet deprives your body of the fuel it needs to function properly.

      I always advise against using protein shakes to replace meals – simply because this practice is not sustainable and it starves your body of calories and nutrients, sending it into an ’emergency state’ where it is forced to hold on to body fat instead of burning it.

      Instead, use this shake as a snack between your three meals per day to get your daily protein intake to around 1 to 1.5g per pound of bodyweight.

      Focus on eating well, exercising often, drinking lots of water, and getting at least 8 hours sleep every night, and your energy levels should improve.

      Hope this helps – let me know if you have any more questions.

  14. Hi buddy, I’m after a few tips, please…

    I’m getting married soon, I’ve been trimming down, which is working perfectly, but I’m losing muscle mass a bit.

    I can’t afford weights, but to try and get more muscle mass, without putting the fat back on too, I’m thinking of using this Promax Lean Definition, whilst working out at home, without any weights.

    Will I just get fat again?

    Or would it do what I’m hoping and put a bit of muscle mass back on me?

    Everyone I talk to, keeps giving me different opinions and advice that all contradict each other.

    Also, what sort of diet should I be going for?

    High protein, low carbs… or low protein and high carbs?

    Please help!
