Note: While Bodybuilding.com claims 121 reviews, we counted 106 available on their site.

Fail Rating Trend

  • 18%
  • Created over 4 days

We counted 106 reviews for this product over the span of 1,471 days, an average of 0.1 reviews per day. If these reviews were created randomly, there would be a 99.9% chance that we would see 2 or fewer reviews on any given day.

However, we see the following 4 days exceeding this threshold:In total, we found that 19 reviews were created on just 4 days. The reviews on these high volume days have rated this product an average of 10.0 while reviews from other days have rated this product an average of 9.5. Based on our statistical modeling, the discrepancy in average rating between these two groups is significant enough to believe that the difference is not due to random chance, and may indicate that there are unnatural reviews.
