JUGGERNAUT® MAY HELP TO:
- Increase Lean Mass*
- Stimulate Muscle Fiber Growth*
- Provide Explosive Power*
- Prolong the "Pump" Sensation*
- Enhance Mental Focus*
- Significantly Reduce Fatigue*
A juggernaut is a term used to depict a literal or metaphorical force viewed as unstoppable.
This is the mentality Infinite Labs® had in mind when we crafted our original pre-workout formula, JUGGERNAUT®. Engineered to be directed towards bodybuilders and athletes alike, JUGGERNAUT® is armed with an innovative Glyco-Core™ Plasma Expander specifically designed to enhance muscle pumps during training. This plasma expander prevents dehydration and fatigue, increases endurance, and is the perfect complement to the Hypertrophic Myovascular Expansion Complex™.*
The components in JUGGERNAUT® were selected by Infinite Labs® research and developmental scientists and are based on human and in vitro (outside of the living organism) studies published in scientific, peer-reviewed journals. It is an all-in-one, pre-workout supplement that fuels muscle fiber growth, enhances explosive power and reduces fatigue while providing an intense element of mental focus.* Circumstances are said to be created by the mind. JUGGERNAUT® empowers you to bring mind and muscle to life - allowing you to generate the greatest possible bodybuilding circumstances for your workout.*
Hypertrophic Myovascular Expansion Complex™
These complexes work effortlessly across the muscle cell, with intracellular and vascular spaces providing entire-muscle support of volume, hypertrophy, and anabolism. Research suggests that independent hormone influence or substrate influence decreases cell volume, leading to cellular catabolism or protein breakdown, while an increase in cell volume has been shown to lead to anabolism or protein synthesis.*
Essentially, hormones tell the cell to shrink or swell, and it is this action (not the hormone's action) that leads to changes in protein metabolism. Moreover, research suggests that during intense resistance exercise, dehydration reduces plasma testosterone responses to exercise. Incorporating JUGGERNAUT® before any workout enhances cell volume and hydration, thusly promoting an anabolic state.*
ProGrow Whey Complex™
JUGGERNAUT® provides three grams of non-essential and essential amino acids in order to elicit a net muscle protein gain following resistance exercise. A clinical study recently published in the Journal of Strength & Conditioning Research demonstrated that the use of pre/post-workout drinks for those training to build a bigger/leaner body elicited positive results. These results coincided with results from a 2006 study that suggests enhanced testosterone levels (in conjunction with reduced muscle breakdown) when essential amino acids (EAA) were administered to a group of lifters during four weeks of intense weight training.* The group not receiving EEA had a drop in testosterone levels after four weeks, which suggests EEA's are effective for diminishing muscle strength loss during initial high-volume stress, possibly by reducing muscle damage by maintaining an anabolic environment.*
Reducing cortisol levels is also an effective way to stimulate muscle hypertrophy. Recent research suggests that incorporating 6g of EAA post exercise can reduce post-exercise muscle damage by nearly 50%. BCAAs are both anti-catabolic and anabolic due to their ability to significantly increase protein synthesis, maintain a favorable testosterone-to-cortisol ratio, and facilitate the release of hormones such as growth hormone (GH), insulin and IGF-1.*
One of the best times to ingest protein is pre-workout; this is thought to be due to the increase in muscle blood flow during exercise, which helps utilize amino acids provided by digested protein into muscle cells. The JUGGERNAUT® formula carries a wide array of components that promote optimal performance due to their broad spectrum of energizing and volumizing properties.*
Glyco-Core™ enhances the water-carrying capacity and volume of plasma, thus supporting heavier workloads and enhancing muscularity and vascularity. As glycerol draws water into the plasma, creatine draws water into the muscle cell to stimulate volume-induced anabolism and, eventually, hypertrophy of the muscle. Glycerol has been utilized to provoke hyperhydration in an attempt to offset the damaging effects of dehydration during long-term aerobic exercise. When glycerol is consumed orally, it is absorbed swiftly, primarily in the small intestine; it is reported to disperse evenly among all fluid compartments and promotes hyperhydration by stimulating an osmotic gradient.* Once consumed, the plasma glycerol concentration increases in proportion to the dose ingested, ultimately suggesting that, without supplemental glycerol ingestion, there would be a decrease in the osmotic gradient - resulting in a loss of hyperhydration.*
JUGGERNAUT® incorporates a high amount of glycerol that adds to its enhanced plasma volume effect and greater muscle pumps. It also contains magnesium, chromium, cinnamon and glucose polymers that support insulin action for maximum creatine utilization. Acting as a buffer of two-carbon acetyl groups in muscle fibers, carnitine endures muscle force levels in the face of fatigue.*
Intense Nitric Oxide Initiating Complex™
Nitric Oxide (NO) is a key vasodilator produced in the body from the amino acid arginine. When smooth muscle lining relaxes, blood vessel diameter increases, which ultimately stimulates blood flow. The body's selected source of Arginine for NO production is citrulline. Arginase is an enzyme that synthesizes arginine, thus limiting the production of NO. Norvaline, seen in the JUGGERNAUT® formula, is a natural inhibitor of Arginase. Vitamins B-12 and folic acid are co-factors for enzymes involved in NO construction. Guanidinopropionic acid is an insulin-sensitizer utilized by athletes to stimulate muscle cell volumization; it has also been suggested to play a role in appetite regulation.*
