Originally Muscletech’s Essential Series was said to feature a total of 13 supplements, all named and pictured in the brand’s Arnold Classic poster. With that said the brand did release a second image, as well as list a whole separate set of products turning out with a total of 17. It didn’t take us long to figure out that it wasn’t four different formulas dividing the two amounts, it was in fact six. Surprisingly Muscletech removed two of the initially previewed supplements, Platinum Test Booster and Platinum Gakic. At this point we still don’t know if either of the products will be making it to shelves. Seeing as they have both been left out of promotional images, and are not listed on the brand’s website. While Test Booster is or was an entirely new supplement. Platinum Gakic would have been, and still may be the fifth formula driven by Muscletech’s signature ingredient glycine-l-arginine-alpha-ketoisocaproic acid calcium. We’ve seen Gakic, Gakic Hardcore, Gakic Hardcore Pro, and the Performances Series Push 10. However if the Essential Series product does eventually find it’s way to shelves, and follow the trend of the other individually named items in the new line. Muscletech’s fifth Gakic formula will be the first time in (est.) five years the brand have sold the ingredient by itself. As mentioned we still don’t know if Platinum Gakic or Test Booster will ever be seen again. But there is a glimmer of hope for fans who over the years haven’t enjoyed Muscletech’s mixtures of Gakic with yohimbine, caffeine or beta-alanine.
