- 65 Grams of Protein per Serving
- 7 Types of Fast-Acting Creatine
- 4 Muscle-Pumping N.O. Precursors
- 3 Mass-Inducing Carb Sources*
This cutting-edge powder is one-stop shopping for the serious bodybuilder looking to pack on rock-hard muscle without fumbling around with a bunch of clumsy bottles or products pushing “snake oil.” Painstakingly formulated using key ingredients scientifically linked with building shredded muscle and adding lean mass, Iso Mass XTREME GAINER is bursting at the seams with these components: protein isolates, complex carbohydrates, creatine, glutamine, nitric oxide precursors, vitamins, trace elements, and healthy fats. The 60 premium ingredients fall into 9 specific blends designed to shock and awe your body with an initial surge of energy prior to exercise and a steady flow of nutrients throughout the day.* Iso Mass XTREME GAINER works best when mixed with milk and pounded immediately before a monster workout session (though it’s also effective when taken immediately after training or with breakfast on rest days). When dissolved in 16 ounces of 2% low-fat milk, each serving contains a whopping 72 grams of protein – 144% of the recommended daily intake (based on 2,000 calorie per day diet)!
THE SHEER NUMBER OF KEY INGREDIENTS IN THIS SUPP IS NO JOKE. JUGGLING A PRO-BODYBUILDING CAREER, A PERSONAL TRAINING BUSINESS, AND STILL HAVING A LIFE MEANS I DON’T HAVE TIME TO MESS AROUND WITH A BUNCH OF PRODUCTS. ISO MASS XTREME GAINER HAS EVERYTHING I NEED TO GET YOKED UNDER ONE ROOF WITHOUT COMPROMISING QUALITY OR TASTE. – “BIG” BILL WILMORE, IFBB PRO, TEAM ULTIMATE NUTRITION
During post-workout cool down, the ISO MASS matrix of five key proteins (whey, casein, egg, milk, and lactoferrin protein blend) combines both the initial quick-hitting surge of whey and the sustained-release of casein to cover all the bases for optimal muscle-protein synthesis.*
Carbohydrates are essential to packing on functional mass, and if you’re not fueling up with the proper types, the body will break down protein (read: muscle tissue) to compensate. The CARBO MASS blend (5 carbohydrate sources highlighted by fast-digesting waxy maize) replenishes glycogen levels depleted during mammoth workout sessions so that pre-existing muscle is not broken down during recovery.*
The seven types of fast-acting creatine in this blend (including patent-protected Kre-Alkalyn® pH buffered creatine) increase strength and fat-free mass gained via strenuous training by accelerating the regeneration rate of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the main energy source for all cells within the body, thus putting you in beast mode – ready to conquer the gym!
This mixture of healthy fats drives home that “jacked-up” look by fortifying gains in lean versus fatty mass, resulting in enhanced body composition. Counterintuitive as it may sound, healthy fats are critical to maximizing muscle growth. The OMEGA MASS blend is comprised of sunflower oil, medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), borage oil, flaxseed oil, conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), and Omega-3 oil, all of which are vital to increasing energy and maximizing muscle tissue repair.*
This blend of vitamins ties together the extensive pre- and post-workout benefits of Iso Mass XTREME GAINER. VITA MASS supplies the body with ample amounts of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and trace elements to support the immune system and promote overall good health.*
Glutamine accounts for over 20% of all circulating amino acids in humans, making it the most prevalent in the body. During exhaustive exercise and physical training, glutamine is highly utilized, and levels can become depleted by as much as 50%. This blend of four glutamine sources here is integral to reducing soreness and repairing fatigued muscle tissue by reducing the “cannibalization” of existing glutamine reserves. Additionally, it enhances glycogen storage, supporting improved strength, endurance, and intensity.*
Likewise, our three-pronged BCAA MASS (leucine, valine, and isoleucine) offers up a quick hit of branched-chain amino acids (the essential amino acids depleted the most during intense workouts) in amino form for faster absorption than protein (which first must be broken down into amino acids prior to entering the bloodstream). A consistent supply of amino acids to fatigued muscles leads to superior growth and gains!*
Once you’ve pounded your first serving of Iso Mass XTREME GAINER, the first of the 9 scientific blends kicks in – ENZYME MASS. Composed of protease and lactase, this enzymatic complex maximizes overall effectiveness of the other nutrients by increasing absorption and muscle uptake so that nutrients don’t go to waste!
It would be silly to highlight all the potent effects of Iso Mass XTREME GAINER without discussing how great it tastes. Available to BodyBuilding.com customers in five mouthwatering flavors (Chocolate Milk, Chocolate Peanut Butter, Cookies ‘n’ Cream, Soft Vanilla Ice Cream, and Strawberry Milk Shake) and in no-nonsense 10-pound barrels, you’re gonna enjoy drinking this. Evaluating all the factors that are crucial to serious hardgainers (convenience, a wide selection of flavors, competitive pricing), it’s no surprise that Iso Mass XTREME GAINER has earned the undisputed title: All-In-One Lean Mass Gainer. You’ll quickly learn that when it comes to building lean, shredded muscle mass, we’re the only gain in town!
