Universal Nutrition's Torrent sets a new standard for post-workout (PWO) nutrition. Though often looked past, this part of the bodybuilding equation is the most important aspect in the quest to foster new growth. Properly utilizing this time is vital for inducing overall muscle mass "activation". Torrent's formula is engineered to maximize the anabolic "window of opportunity" that occurs after a hard training session, when muscle protein synthesis can possibly be stimulated for hours. Simultaneously, the rate of protein degradation is also increased.*
In the absence of important macronutrient intake, a bodybuilder's protein balance would remain negative. If you want to build muscle this certainly isn't good. This is where Torrent™ comes into play. It acts fast and efficiently by fueling your muscles with a powerful cascade of criticial nutrients, all in a matter of moments. After a hard workout your muscles are torn down, glycogen is depleted and your body enters a damaging catabolic state. For the bodybuilder, this is a state of red alert.*
When digested immediately post-training, Torrent's proprietary blend of muscle mass activators rush to bring your body back into anabolic "green light" status, quickly fixing damaged muscle fibers while starting fresh growth. First and foremost, it has super high-efficiency protein. Torrent™ is loaded with hydrolyzed whey protein, which contains small whey peptides that can be quickly digested and absorbed. Hydrolyzed protein is the fastest digesting protein available.*
Torrent also contains a specialized Osmosulin Matrix of carbohydrates that enables quick glycogen replenishment and the quickest possible absorption of muscle-nourishing nutrients. This blend is full with an optimal ratio of complex carbs from innovative, highly prized waxy maize starch, maltodextrin, and dextrose. This blend allows for a drastic boost of anabolic insulin via simple sugars coupled with the nutrient-drawing effects of "high molecular weight" carbohydrates.*
The formula is then generously spiked with 18 grams of a key proprietary blend of advanced aminos and creatines. A special "anabolic matrix" that will put your muscles in post-workout recovery overdrive. When digested immediately after extreme training this powerfu blend can induce an intense anabolic surge that shuttles nutrients into your starved muscle cells.*
Of most importance, the additional leucine appears to be especially significant in that it helps further stimulate muscle protein synthesis and maximally optimizes whole protein balance. Leucine is the “money” amino in terms of anabolism, and Torrent delivers a full 8,000 milligram complex of its most advanced forms. With Torrent, you are guaranteed you are using the most complete post-workout product on the market.*
Heightened anabolism, rapid nutrient transport, insulin potentiating--all transported by means of a delicious post-workout growth cocktail. And we mean delicious. Torrent is an anabolic force mother nature never intended. Blow your plateaus away with Torrent.*
Why Take a Post-Workout Supplement?
P-W-O. These three letters, as they relate to nutrition, are among the most overlooked parts of the bodybuilding equation. In reality, P-W-O is the most critical factor in the quest to foster new growth. What is P-W-O? "Post-workout". As in, post-workout nutrition. That period of time following lifting is absolutely vital for inducing overall muscle mass "activation". Torrent's™ formula is designed to maximize what's called the anabolic “window of opportunity”. This open window exists after a hard training session and it's your job to get as much of the right nutrients through that opening as possible...
To simplify matters, essentially three things occur post-workout that can affect one's muscle mass gains and repair time: glycogen is depleted, muscle protein balance is negative, and the rate of protein degradation is increased. To break it down further, glycogen is essentially what fuels the muscles during a workout. Low glycogen stores mean that there's less cellular energy for recovery and overall workout performance, not to mention fatigue and having to tap into other places in order to meet the body's demands (using protein for glycogen replenishment). In this situation, training and performance will suffer.
Protein degradation indicates that body tissues, which are made of amino acids, are being broken down. Increases in protein breakdown can lead to losses of muscle mass. And last but not least, muscle protein balance is regulated by the balance between protein synthesis and protein breakdown. Immediately after a strength workout, protein synthesis either stays the same or slightly increases, however the negative part is that protein breakdown occurs rapidly. This leads to a negative muscle protein balance and loss of muscle. Intense weight training is a traumatic event and as such catabolic… It is the nutrition that is targeted on response to this muscle breakdown which determines whether or not anabolism or muscle building occurs.
One question that often comes up is this, “What happens if I don't take advantage of the PWO window of opportunity? I mean, I sometimes supplement with a shake or have a meal post-workout.” Well, sorry to disappoint you but you are probably not optimizing your gains. As a result of these three post workout phenomena (a failure to rapidly bring the body back into recovery mode, i.e., to increase glycogen stores; to increase protein synthesis; and to prevent protein breakdown), you have to deal with several potential consequences:
- Prolonged muscle soreness
- Reduced performance in the gym and high risk of overtraining
- Minimal gains in muscle mass despite a well-designed training program
- Possible loss of muscle mass
Now, these four consequences aren't meant to scare you. It should only reinforce the importance that the post-workout window of opportunity plays, especially to anyone who is looking to maximize the long hours spent in the gym working on building mass. Remember working out is just one part of the equation--recovery and nutrition should be just as important to lifters. This is why we here at Universal Nutrition, engineered Torrent-the ideal post-workout, anabolic muscle mass activator.*
