It’s a given that bodybuilders maintain strict diets ahead of competition—especially when they’re Olympia-bound. But even in the off season, MHP-sponsored athlete and Classic Physique competitor Chris Bumstead keeps his diet clean, with one exception: cereal. He likes to incorporate his favorite snack post-workout when insulin levels are higher and his body can utilize the simple sugars.

Bumstead sticks to a classic six-meals-per-day bodybuilding diet and MHP supplements. The brand is bringing back Dark Matter, a post-workout replenisher that Bumstead also uses to stay fueled during his workouts. Two new energy-focused products are also in the works: Hyper Crush pre-workout and Adrenaline Drive caffeine mints.
