You see their ads in all the magazines with some of the biggest names not only in bodybuilding, but the entire sports world. You see their logo on every MMA event there is. Their products are amongst the most popular in the industry today and their booths at the expos are always busy. MusclePharm has come a long way in a relatively short time. Bodybuilding.com is recognizing them for their accomplishments and their loyal customer base by featuring them as the Supplement Company of the Month.

CEO Bradley J. Pyatt was mentored by one of the nation's premiere herbalists known for nutritional techniques and advanced herbal formulas. As one of the brightest young minds in sports nutrition, Pyatt set out to develop a superior line of products with the backing of some of the most influential people in the fitness and sports nutrition world. One of the hardest-working executives in the industry, Pyatt has made MusclePharm the fastest-growing brand in the industry and is well qualified to make it a leading company in the sports nutrition world.

Recon Muscle Pharm Presents:
Recon

RECON® is hyper-loaded with glycogen-replenishing, muscle-loading specific carbohydrates (Carb-Max blend), and cellular detoxifiers to prevent catabolism and promote cellular health.* RECON® also targets key anabolic and recovery pathways within the body to support muscle growth, fuel recovery and maximize the body's adaptive response to hard training.

Bradley J. Pyatt took the time to talk to us about the company, their plans, and more.


[ Q ] Can you please tell our readers how your company started?

As an ex-NFL player I wanted to help share and bring my personal experience to an unregulated sports nutrition market that ultimately could have jeopardized my playing career. I am putting a stop to this by bringing a superior line of products, that are safe, banned-substance free, tested thoroughly, backed by top doctors and scientists, and proven by athletes such as The Athletes Company™!


[ Q ] What made you decide that you should start your own supplement company?

I believe many current supplement companies prey on young athletes' ignorance; they overhype and under deliver on effectiveness, label claims, and many times what is actually on the label, causing athletes to test positive for something they bought at a local vitamin store.


[ Q ] Can you tell us about some other important people that helped you out in the beginning?

With the help of Dr. Eric Serrano our main formulator, my partner Cory Gregory and my Executive VP Leonard Armenta, we were able to get this launched and grow to where we are today.


[ Q ] Can you tell us a little more about yourself and your background in the industry?

I have seven years of experience as a professional athlete, a formal education in Kinesiology Exercise Science, and more than five years experience in the sports nutrition arena.


[ Q ] What are some of your top products right now?

Our top products are Assault and Recon. This we refer to as our Athlete Stack. These two products contain more active ingredients than any other product on the market.

Assault Muscle Pharm Presents:
Assault

ASSAULT™'s clinically driven formula combines the vital "powerhouse" active ingredients above with several key synergists into 3 "MATRICES" specifically formulated to maximize performance-enhancing impact. With more than TWICE the active ingredients per dose of other major brands, few other products can stand up to the power of ASSAULT™!
[ Find Assault! in our store. ]


[ Q ] Are there any new and exciting products that you are coming out with soon?

We just release our new MuscleGel. It is 22 grams of whey protein in a 1 oz packet. We feel this will revolutionize the way people take protein.


[ Q ] Is there any other big news about your company that you would like to share with us?

Right now our Recon is in the process of being Medicaid approved. Keep an eye on our Press releases to see about the clinical studies we will be doing.


[ Q ] Have you sponsored any people and if so how have they impacted your company and the industry?

We have been successful at keeping an impressive lineup of endorsers on the MusclePharm team. From key MMA and UFC performers such as Rashad Evans, Clay Guida and Anderson Silva to top NFL athletes like Shawne Merriman and Joey Porter. The great part for us is we sponsor guys who actually believe in and take our products. We wouldn't have it any other way.

[ Q ] Let's say a customer comes to you that is just starting out and can only afford one product. Which one do you recommend and why?

I would highly recommend our pre-workout drink, ASSAULT. Not only is it an affordable product, but it will also kick your workout to the next level. For women I would recommend SHRED MATRIX, our fat loss product.

Shred Matrix Muscle Pharm Presents:
Shred Matrix

SHRED MATRIX™ contains a combination of high-quality, research suggested ingredients designed to up-regulate the metabolism naturally.* SHRED MATRIX™ is safe for healthy, active athletes. MusclePharm recommends always checking w/ your physician before using any new supplement or training program, especially a product with the power of SHRED MATRIX™. But, generally speaking, SHRED MATRIX™ is SAFE for both men and women.

[ Q ] What do you believe is the best and worst things about the supplement industry?

Having the ability to dramatically transform bodies, minds and the overall health of individuals is extremely rewarding. Unfortunately there are a lot of substandard supplement companies making false claims about their products. These companies give the whole industry a bad rap.


[ Q ] Before we wrap this up, is there anything else you would like to share or is there anyone you would like to thank or give a shout out to?

I want to give thanks to all my family that supported me in the beginning. My partner Cory for taking the chance to get into business with me and my great team at MusclePharm: Leonard Armenta, Mindy White, David Armenta, Joseph Lawanson, Eric Holmes, Andon Guenther, Shawn Wingate, Drew Miller and Larry Meer. I also want to thank all our customers for giving MusclePharm a shot and using our products.
