You're no couch potato. You're definitely not casual about training. You are a bodybuilder, a powerlifter. You are serious and committed. That's why you're here. Well your nutrition should reflect your lifestyle. Hardcore training requires hardcore supplementation. And Animal Pak is as hardcore as it gets.

Why Do I Need It?

In weight training there are the basics, the tried and true exercises that have produced results forever:

  • The squat
  • The deadlift
  • The bench press

The Squat, Deadlift & Bench Press.

The fundamentals. The same goes for the weight trainer's nutrition program. Ample macronutrients are crucial: lean protein, complex carbs and healthy fats. This same basic approach applies to supplements. Ya gotta have your protein powder and your multivitamin. The multi is so essential, that it's hard to even call it a supplement. Sure, the mutli isn't glamorous or hyped. It's solid, it's steady, and it's absolutely vital for serious lifters.

Why Is The Pak Special?

Universal Animal Pak

For hard-core bodybuilders and strength athletes, nothing beats Animal Pak for maximizing gains in muscle mass, strength and performance. There is no better nutritional weapon available to fuel intense workouts. Spawning many imitators, the original Animal Pak is still loaded with the most advanced, highest quality bodybuilding nutrients.
    This nutritional staple comes in many forms. You see them everywhere. But none of them are designed to specifically address the special needs of the intense strength athlete. None, that is, except the Animal Pak.

    Animal Pak has it all: vitamins, minerals, aminos (like BCAAs), antioxidants, electrolytes, performance optimizers, digestive enzymes and essential fats (EFAs). Yeah, it's that complete. Think of the Pak as your foundational supplement…quot;the one upon which to build your entire nutritional protocol.

    Like we said before, you aren't some lazy son of a b!tch, so why use his multivitamin? You are the elite... The dedicated. You are Animal. The one who pays his dues everyday. Your multivitamin should be formulated accordingly. You deserve that much...

    When it comes to growing our muscles in a freakish way, Animal Pak provides the right combination and mega-doses of all the good stuff you need. These powerful pharmacological agents and catalysts can exert significant ergogenic/anabolic benefits and function as the spark plugs for activating all the necessary chemical reactions that make training and building muscle possible.

    Only Animal Pak has everything athletes need. Plus it's so convenient that you can throw a pack right in your pocket and won't have to worry about lugging a can around.

When Do I Take It?

    The Pak is best when taken on a daily basis because over time vitamin deficiencies can escalate. Especially when eating a restricted, redundant diet.

    Eventually, the body will stop functioning at its optimum level due to weakened immunity and diminished hormone production. In other words, your development plateaus.

    Our bodies are so sensitive that if even one key nutrient is missing from the diet, the body could shut down the anabolic drive needed to build muscle so that it can support more critical metabolic processes.

    When this happens, growth can stop. Plus, so often the optimal effectiveness of one supplement relies on the ideal internal environment, one nourished by the comprehensive formula of a multi as potent as the Animal Pak.

Nutritional Gaps

Many of today's supplements need the body to be nutrient dense to work efficiently. Nutritional gaps mean that your supplements may be rendered ineffective.

For example, many muscle building products (e.g., nitric oxide boosters and testosterone boosters) rely on enzymes and other substrates in the body to "activate" them. This is especially the case when using Stak 2, Cuts or any of the other more specialized Animal performance packs. You can use the Stak 2 to boost test output, the Cuts to get ripped, Nitro to enhance recovery and anabolism. These are made even more effective when stacked on top of the Pak's foundation.

The Bottom Line...

    The bottom line is, poor nutrition means poor conversion and hindered activation of expensive anabolic nutrients. You can think of the Animal Pak as the insurance policy that will prevent nutritional deficiencies and the inefficient utilization of bodybuilding supplementation. Not bad for just having to take a single pack daily.

    This leads us to the question of whether or not it is necessary to take 2 packs daily. This is probably one of the most common questions we get.

    Generally, one pack will do the job for most trainers. If you are taking one Pak, take it first thing in the morning with breakfast, when your muscles are starved for nutrients.

    Let's say you use another pre-workout boosting supplement like the M-Stak or Cuts prior to the workout. No matter what time you train - you would take the M-Stak or Cuts prior to the workout.

The Animal Pak on the other hand, being an essential nutrient pack, can actually be taken along with any of your large meals throughout the day - with your first meal or post-workout being the most ideal. Meals help in the absorption of the nutrients in the pack so always be sure to take the Pak along with food.

Back to the initial topic, if you are an elite bodybuilder or competitive strength athlete enduring the rigors of contest prep, bumping your intake up to 2 packs a day could make a big difference in your performance and recovery.

If you are taking them twice daily try to space them out with 6-8 hrs. between packs allowing for maximal absorption. Your inclusion of the Animal Pak into your nutritional regimen and its profound effects should be obvious almost immediately.

Taking vitamins, minerals and potent muscle building nutrients also may have some innocuous side effects, such as bright yellow piss.

When you notice that, there is no need to worry, everything is normal. You're just pissing out some of the extra B vitamins. B vitamins are called the energy vitamins because they are required for the production of energy. They are growth vitamins, crucial to anabolism. So if you're pissing them out, it means the Animal Pak is working and your nutritional tanks are full.

Do I Need Extra B-Vitamins Then?

You Should Take Extra B-Vitamins If You:

  1. Those who smoke.
  2. The elderly.
  3. Those who drink alcohol or abuse other drugs.
  4. Vegetarians.
  5. Those with chronic digestive problems.
  6. Those with increased nutritional requirements or who have a nutritionally inadequate diet.
