Date:5/22/2012

DENVER, May 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- MusclePharm Corporation (OTCBB: MSLP.OB), a nutritional supplement company focusing on active lifestyles, today announced that it has signed Major League Baseball phenom Bryce Harper as a sponsor. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

Harper, a 19-year-old star outfielder for the Washington Nationals, made his professional baseball debut on April 28.  He previously was the Number 1 overall pick in the 2010 baseball draft, after earning the 2010 Golden Spikes Award, which is given annually by USA Baseball to the nation's best amateur baseball player.

Harper, a former Baseball America High School Player of the Year, has been featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated. The baseball prodigy has also been proclaimed as a future superstar in the sport.

"I have been using MusclePharm products for more than a year, and I fell in love with the brand after first being introduced to it," Harper said. "MusclePharm products have been certified to be used in professional baseball, and I know they are safe and effective because of that.

"Their entire product line is outstanding, and they do an amazing job helping me recover correctly, while allowing me to perform at a high level. I am truly excited to be working with MusclePharm in this capacity."

MusclePharm, which has many products certified by both NSF International and Informed Choice as free of banned substances, is also the official supplement company of the UFC and used by many players in professional baseball and in the NFL.

"Harper's immense baseball talent, likeable personality and broad appeal to a key demographic made this the ideal partnership for MusclePharm," said Cory Gregory, the company's co-founder and senior vice president.  "We've had our eye on Bryce for nearly two years, because I really thought he fit our brand perfectly. We saw him progress through the minors at a rapid rate, and we were impressed with his Major League debut. It is icing on the cake that he is already using MusclePharm products

"Bryce fits into our main demographic perfectly, and we are beyond thrilled to have him on board as one of our main athletes. He trains extremely hard and has a tremendous work ethic, and we are excited to welcome Bryce to MusclePharm in a big way," Gregory added.
