I am looking into a thermogenic like OxyElite Pro or Shred Matrix, etc.
If I take either of those will it burn muscle as well? I want to keep all my muscle and just burn fat so will these products work for my needs? Thx

If you are at a caloric deficit and doing cardio as well then yes you most likely will lose some muscle mass. Try and stack with creatine and a very high protein diet to help spare some of the muscle. Judging by your avatar it looks like you're pretty shredded already so you might not need to even run a thermo just increase your cardio a small amount and cut out some carbs and you will lean out just fine.

That's more a function of diet and training, than which fat burner you use. The exception might be 7keto, which definitely has a mild anabolic effect, and hinders catabolism.
Blaze Hardcore and Tight Hardcore have 7keto, and NOW 7keto and ean Xtreme stack well with other stimmed fatburners.~ SAN Head Rep and Warlord ~

unless you are on anabolics or heavily obese, anything with a high calorie deficient (-750 or more) a day you should expect to lose some muscle mass...BMW M6... $100,000
Rolex Watch... $3,400
Armani Leather Jacket... $700
The look on your ex gf's face after cutting season... priceless
There are a lot of things money CAN buy, for everything else there's bodybuilding.
