Torrent sets a new standard for post-workout (PWO) nutrition. Though often overlooked, this part of the bodybuilding equation is the most critical aspect in the quest to foster new growth. Properly utilizing this time is vital for inducing overall muscle mass "activation". Torrent's formula is designed to maximize the anabolic "window of opportunity" that exists after a hard training session, when muscle protein synthesis can potentially be stimulated for hours.* Simultaneously, the rate of protein degradation is also increased.*
In the absence of critical macronutrient intake, a bodybuilder's protein balance would remain negative. If you want to build muscle this definitely isn't good. This is where Torrent comes into play. It acts quickly and efficiently by supplying your muscles with a powerful cascade of critical 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 consumed immediately post-training, Torrent's proprietary blend of muscle mass activators rush to bring your body back into anabolic "green light" status, quickly repairing damaged muscle fibers while triggering fresh growth.* First and foremost, it has super high-efficiency protein. Torrent is loaded with hydrolyzed whey protein, which consists of small whey peptides that can be quickly digested and absorbed.* Hydrolyzed protein is the quickest digesting protein available.*
Torrent also contains a specialized Osmosulin Matrix of carbohydrates that allows for quick glycogen replenishment and fast absorption of muscle-nourishing nutrients.* This blend is packed with an optimal ratio of complex carbs from innovative, highly prized waxy maize starch, maltodextrin, and dextrose. This blend promotes boost of 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 consumed immediately after intense training this potent blend can induce a powerful muscle building surge that shuttles nutrients into your starved muscle cells.* Heightened anabolism, rapid nutrient transport, insulin potentiating--all delivered by means of a delicious post-workout growth cocktail.* And we mean delicious. Torrent is an anabolic force Mother Nature never intended.
Frequently Asked Questions
Does Torrent contain enough protein?
Yes. Torrent has 20g of protein, but it's not just regular whey protein. Torrent contains expensive WPH (whey protein hydrolysates), which is the fastest absorbing protein of its kind, even faster than free form aminos.* After a workout the goal is to take in only the most efficient sources of nutrients and WPH is as efficient as it gets. Plus, research suggests that too much protein isn't efficient as excess can convert to the waste product, urea. Torrent is lean and efficient and was designed with the idea that nothing should go to waste. Also, bear in mind that Torrent contains 8,000mg of a special leucine complex, bringing up the total amino acid content of Torrent significantly. For those in the know, leucine may very well be the most anabolic of all the amino acids.* This 8,000mg, when combined with WPH, creates a far greater impact than 20g of whey protein concentrate alone.*
I've been hearing a lot about Waxy Maize Starch. What makes it so special?
Waxy Maize Starch (WMS) is a unique and very expensive "high molecular weight" carbohydrate that has the ability to move through the stomach rapidly.* This is ideal for quick glycogen replenishment without "stomach bloat".* Just as importantly, WMS has the ability to draw or "pull" other nutrients into your muscles cells along with it-this special "torrent" action makes it an ideal carb for post-workout ingestion.*
Why use Waxy Maize Starch in conjunction with other carbs?
WMS has a "nutrient drawing" effect because of its high molecular weight.* Taken in the Osmosulin Carb Matrix along with d-glucose and maltodextrin, you combine this rapid gut-passing of aminos and other nutrients from WMS with the potent insulin spiking properties of simple carbohydrates.* In other words, Torrent provides a fuller spectrum of various carb sources, each with their own functional advantages.
Do I need to use Torrent on my non-training days?
No. Torrent is a post-workout supplement that can optimally be used on training days when your muscles require superior, targeted nutrition.
Why do I need Torrent™ Isn't my regular PWO protein shake enough?
Simply put, no. Recent studies suggest that combining whey along with carbs and leucine is more beneficial than protein alone or protein and carbs alone.* The additional leucine appears to help 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, all of your postworkout needs are covered in one shot and at a price that is very, very nice.* Easily digested protein, an advanced carb blend and 18,000mg of cutting-edge aminos and creatine all in one is a delicious postworkout drink mix.
Does Torrent need to be "cycled"?
No, as a post-workout shake, Torrent should be taken after each workout to help supply your muscles with the right nutrients to support muscle growth and repair.* There is no need to cycle it. Regarding the creatines used in Torrent, see this FAQ.
Can I mix Torrent with milk or is water enough?
You can, but for optimal results, Torrent should be mixed with water. Torrent is a complete post-workout shake. Adding milk or other substances to the shake can cause some delay of its absorption-meaning it'll take longer for critical nutrients to reach your muscle cells. 20 oz. of water hand mixed in a standard shaker cup or water bottle is all you need.
Can I use Storm and Shock Therapy with Torrent?
Yes. Torrent is designed to fit right along with the tried and true combination of Shock Therapy and Storm. Here's how you'd do it: take Shock Therapy 30 mins pre-workout. Consume Storm either during your workout or immediately afterwards. Take Torrent within 15 minutes after your workout.
Conversely, do I need another source of creatine other than that contained in Torrent?
No. While you can stack Torrent with other creatine products like Animal Pump, Storm and/or Shock Therapy for greater results, you can also use Torrent as your sole creatine source. Torrent contains 3g of creatine including creatine ethyl ester (CEE) and magnesium creatine chelate (MCC). Bear in mind that, as you are using Torrent only on training days, you'll still need to supplement with creatine on your off days.
Taste wise, most postworkout drinks taste awful? How did you get around this fact with Torrent?
True, it is difficult to mask the flavor of a formula that includes not only WPH and WMS, but 18g of advanced aminos. But through months of stringent taste testing protocols and new advancements in flavoring, we think we created a product you will actually look forward to consuming.
