Get Extreme With Hydroxycut Hardcore Elite

Hydroxycut Hardcore Elite

Take the red pill. I insist!

I’ve written about a lot of products related to pre-workout stimulants and energy boosting (*read them [here](, [here](, and [here](*), so I’ll keep this review brief.
*MuscleTech Hydroxycut Hardcore Elite is potent!*
This is some professional-grade stuff here, even by my standards, and I consume a lot of stimulants!
MuscleTech’s combination of ingredients suppresses appetite, boosts focus, and increases energy.
This stuff works incredibly well. So the question becomes, does it burn fat?
While on the pills for two weeks I always had a warm, fuzzy feeling in my body, like I was floating on a cloud. The sensation was manageable, and I can only hope it was the pills doing their job.
Here are my very unscientific before and after photos. What do you think?

Before and After

Before Hardcore Elite and two weeks later. Was there any fat loss?

You have to be careful with this stuff. *These are some serious drugs.* The combination of caffeine, coleus extract, green coffee extract, L-theanine, cocoa extract, and yohimbe made my teeth chatter if I wasn’t careful.
I recommend starting with one pill in the morning instead of your usual coffee. Don’t take this stuff if you’re already jacked on caffeine because that’s a recipe for disaster and you will overdose on stimulants.

I’ve become a big fan of MuscleTech products and this product is no different. Hardcore Elite is very powerful and will give you incredible focus if you take it in small doses for sort time periods.
Seriously though, be cautious with this stuff. I can’t stress that enough. This is a Big Kid drug, so don’t take Hardcore Elite without a game plan.
If you’ve tried other products I’ve reviewed and think you have the intestinal fortitude to try Hardcore Elite, I say give it a go. But do it for a very short period of time: one week, two weeks–not much more than that. Any longer than that and chances are good your adrenal system will shut down!
