DENVER, Jan. 25, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MusclePharm(R) Corporation (OTCBB: MSLP ), one of the fastest growing nutritional supplement companies in the United States, is pleased to announce that it is now the No. 9 best-selling supplement brand on www.bodybuilding.com , the largest online retailer for health and fitness supplements.

MusclePharm is also excited to note that it is on pace to hit its first million-dollar sales month in company history for January, as the popular company continues to expand and develop at a remarkable rate.

That impressive growth has allowed MusclePharm to crack the top 10 at bodybuilding.com on a brand list that includes more than 550 companies. In addition, its cutting-edge pre-workout supplement, Assault, has rapidly moved into the top 10 best-selling products lists as well. It currently sits as the No. 9 best-selling product on an influential website that showcases more than 12,000 products.

"Making the top 10 most popular brands and products list at bodybuilding.com is a great accomplishment for any company, let alone one that has been around for just a little more than two years," Bodybuilding.com COO and CFO Michael McClane said.

"The savvy marketing MusclePharm has done has helped contribute to the sales climb each month with us, and we are very much excited about the future sales with MusclePharm."

Bodybuilding.com, who in 2008 sold a controlling stake of its company to Liberty Media for $100 million, has shipped over 7 million orders worldwide and to the United States Armed Forces, setting the trend for many international markets by listing its top-selling brands.

Assault, a premier and clinically researched performance-booster, has gained notable popularity on a site that attracts millions of visitors a day, boasting excellent customer reviews for a performance-enhancing matrix that was nominated for top pre-workout supplement of 2010 by bodybuilding.com.

MusclePharm's revolutionary fat-loss product, Shred Matrix, has also made noteworthy increases in popularity, as it is currently listed as the No. 37 best-selling product among the tens of thousands that are available on bodybuilding.com.
