Increase Muscle* Increase Energy* Increase Bloodflow* Delay Fatigue*
YOU'VE NEVER BUILT MUSCLE LIKE THIS BEFORE.

Magnum OPUS® creates an anabolic firestorm, causing incredible muscle growth. This groundbreaking formula sends strength levels off the charts by increasing blood flow and hydration of your muscles.* Opus lets you break through barriers by supercharging your energy levels, delaying fatigue and pushing muscle performance. You’ll feel it working instantly.*

INGREDIENTS IN MAGNUM OPUS MAY IMPROVE:
  • Muscular Performance*
  • Cellular Energy*
  • Blood Flow*
  • pH balance*
  • Hydration*
INGREDIENTS IN MAGNUM OPUS MAY:
  • Activate explosive gains in muscular growth*
  • Delay the onset of muscular fatigue*
  • Create new ANABOLIC FUEL*
  • Improve strength*
  • Break through new barriers of muscular performance*
  • Improve recovery*

MAGNUM OPUS® IS THE BEST CHOICE FOR YOUR WORKOUT FUEL BECAUSE:

High quality ingredients for better, faster results.

It is a 100% stimulant free energy source.*

It offers 16 of the most powerful and scientifically proven performance ingredients.*

It provides energy at the cellular level as opposed to over-dose stimulant products.*

A key ingredient in Magnum OPUS® is a neurotransmitter in the central nervous system and of major importance to the creation of protein, peptides and creatine.*

A key ingredient found in Magnum OPUS® is the patented Carnosyn®, which is the purest and highest quality Instantized Beta Alanine. CarnoSyn® activates enzymes responsible for generating muscle contractions and increases intra-muscular Carnosine, which is used by your type II muscle fibers for explosive movements like weight training and sprinting.*

CarnoSyn® Beta Alanine is a non-essential amino acid that is used by muscle cells to synthesize Carnosine. Carnosine is the dipeptide (Beta-Alanine plus Histidine) that functions as a buffer for the hydrogen ions (acid) produced during strenuous exercise, thus helping to maintain optimum muscular pH and prevent the acidity that occurs during exercise. Carnosine is found in large amounts in Type II or “fast twitch” muscle fibers, which are used in explosive movements like weight training and sprinting, a reduction in pH balance causes the muscle burn that you experience while doing high intensity training. Beta-Alanine acts as a precursor to Nitric Oxide (NO) production and works to reduce intra-muscular acidification created by this intense exercise and heavy training.*

A study posted in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition showed significant improvements in exercise performance when supplementing with CarnoSyn®.

Beta Alanine supplementation improves YoYo intermittent recovery test performance

Author: Bryan Suanders, Caroline Sunderland

Seventeen athletes were subjected to the YoYoIR2 test following ingestion of either a placebo or 3.2g of CarnoSyn® a key ingredient dosed at this level in Magnum OPUS®. The YoYo IR2 is an exercise capacity test designed to last between 5 and 15 minutes and aims to evaluate an individual’s ability to perform repeated bouts of high-intensity exercise with a large contribution from anaerobic energy sources as well as aerobic energy systems.

Athletes in the placebo group showed a 7% decline in exercise performance while CarnoSyn® supplementation improved exercise performance by 34%.

Ntric Oxide. Nitrix Oxide Synthase
"Improvements can be attributed to an increase in muscle buffering capacity due to increased muscle Carnosine concentration, attenuating the decline in intramuscular pH during repeated high-intensity exercise bouts."

Train longer and harder without muscle soreness*

Magnum OPUS® raises your cellular pH levels; having an acidic pH not only causes lower muscle mass, but can also lower plasma levels of IGF-1. Having an acidic pH is not conducive to building muscle.A key ingredient that raises your cellular pH levels is Citrulline Malate.

Citrulline malate (CM) is the amino acid citrulline, which is involved in ammonia conversion, bonded to the organic Krebs cycle intermediary malic acid. Citrulline is heavily involved in the urea cycle in the kidneys, helping to remove the build-up of ammonia while being converted to arginine in the process, thus releasing nitric oxide (NO). NO is a second messenger in the body, helping promote blood flow and increase nutrient uptake, but bodybuilders know NO for its ability to produce skin stretching pumps. Citrulline increases bicarbonate re-absorption by the kidneys, helping buffer against any change in pH that ammonia build-up can cause during intense exercise such as weight training.*

A study posted in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research showed that supplementing with a single dose of Citrulline malate resulted in an amazing 52% increase in the number of reps performed. A decrease of 40% in muscle soreness at 24 hours and 48 hours after the pectoral training session and a higher percentage response than 90% was achieved with CM supplementation.

Citrulline Malate Enhances Athletic Anaerobic Performance and Relieves Muscle Soreness

Author: Pérez-Guisado J, Jakeman PM.

Source: “Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research” published May 2010

The randomized, double-blind study conducted on 41 men found that a single dose of CM decreased muscle soreness after exercise and significantly enhanced anaerobic activity. The men were able to do 52% more reps during pectoral training sessions, which included flat barbell bench press, and they also experienced a significant decrease of 40% in muscle soreness at 24 hours and 48 hours after the pectoral training session and a higher percentage response than 90% was achieved with CM supplementation.

Ntric Oxide. Nitrix Oxide Synthase
Citrulline Malate is also a great choice when looking to improve athletic performance and recovery, especially when combined with CarnoSyn®, as the two ingredients are central in raising intercellular pH levels to combat fatigue, allowing you to train longer and harder, while offsetting the soreness usually attributed to this new found training intensity.

THE FIRST WORKOUT FUEL THAT YOU CAN FEEL IN MINUTES*

Magnum OPUS® puts your body in an anabolic state from the first serving, ensuring that you are building, not burning, muscle whether you’re doing endurance activities or high intensity weight training.*

Magnum OPUS® is the first workout fuel that you feel in minutes without any stimulants. Magnum OPUS® enables you to train harder than ever before with no fear of losing muscle or energy production breakdown.*

A key ingredient that allows you to train harder without burning muscle tissue is L-Leucine. Leucine is a branched-chain amino acid, or BCAA, that is an essential source of energy for your muscles. Your body is unable to produce it on its own so it must be supplemented or obtained from food. Leucine can help your muscles recover and prevent muscle loss after exercise and also increase your endurance by increasing the fuel your muscles have to work properly and by preserving energy stores in your muscles. Leucine is the only dietary amino acid that has the capacity to stimulate muscle protein synthesis.*

A study posted in the European Journal of Applied Physiology documented the positive effects L-Leucine had on performance.

Effects of dietary leucine supplementation on exercise performance

Thirteen competitive outrigger canoeists underwent testing before and after a 6-week training phase, using either L-Leucine or a placebo. They were assessed on their upper body power and the time it took to reach exhaustion while rowing at 70-75% of their maximal aerobic power. The results of the study were significant. During the 6-week phase upper body strength and power increased in both groups, however, power output increased significantly more (13%) in the L-Leucine group then the placebo. Rowing time also increased for the L-Leucine group, from a starting time of 6.3 mins up to 7.3 minutes, an increase of 16% where as the placebo group experienced no increase in their times.

Leucine not only increases your body’s ability to build muscle and increase protein synthesis, but when combined with other endurance promoting ingredients, such as the key ingredients found in OPUS®, both anaerobic and aerobic performance may increase significantly.*

Frequently Asked Questions

If Magnum Opus® is stimulant free, why do I feel so much energy?
The stimulant free ingredients in Magnum Opus® are clinically proven to energize your body on a cellular level – they create energy in your cells and fire you up to work hard!*
Will I feel the same kind of energy I get from my high-stimulant based pre-workouts?
NO! While you will feel energy on a cellular level, Magnum Opus® will not buzz you like the high-stimulant products.*
Why do my face and hands tingle when I take Magnum Opus®?
Magnum Opus® has a large dose of Carnosyn® - a patented, ultra-pure Beta Alanine. Beta Alanine is proven to improve blood flow and most people feel this increased blood flow in the form of tingles (primarily on their face and hands). Some people feel the tingles everywhere. This patented ingredient is also proven to increase strength, aerobic and anabolic endurance, and delay muscle fatigue.*
What is the optimal way to take Magnum Opus®?
We recommend on the bottle to take your dose minutes before training (as the ingredients in Magnum Opus® absorb instantly and will take effect instantly). If you weigh over 130 lbs, take 2 scoops and if you weigh less than 130 lbs, just take 1 scoop. However, if you train hard and weigh under 130lbs, don’t hesitate to go for the full 2 scoop dose.
How fast should I see results from Magnum Opus®?
Instantly! The Pharmaceutical Grade ingredients in Magnum Opus® kick in right away and many people have commented they feel energy and their face tingling before the cup even left their lips!! In case you don’t feel the tingles, you will feel the muscular energy and endurance within minutes.*

Absolutely amazing taste and best intra-workout for energy I've ever tried. I love this because it's stim free so I'm able to use it for those late night workouts!

One of the best intra workouts ever and also works as a decent pre workout. Hands down the best swell ive had from any workout formula, plus increased performance.

Ok, so I mentioned that my Limitless was a weird flavor, wait till you taste "Blue Yasberry". I literally can not describe it at all...lol. When I asked for this flavor, I read Blue, saw Yasberry and thought Raspberry...lol. So, what color is BLUE Yasberry? ORANGE!! When I took it, I did the 2 scoops in 16 oz of water. While shaking it up, I could feel pressure building my my bottle. So I would release the air in-between shaking. It mixed up very well. I feel that when using Opus as an Intra drink, it also helped Limitless keep the energy levels up. There is 3.2g of Beta Alanine in it, but did not really notice it. Mixability - 10/10. No residue at all in my bottle. Flavor - 9/10. I really wish I could describe it...lol. Was berry good tho...lol Perfomance - 9.5/10. With the both together, this made it all better.

Opus is my boyfriend! Lol But seriously folks...this is such an awesome intra workout! I actually drink it 50/50 mix with my HI5! I mix the flavors so I get crazy combinations! Strawberry HI5 and Orange Dreamsicle Opus is the best! I love how it gives me steady energy, increases my PH and gives me huge strength and endurance gains! I just started adding DNA in my growth stack and they are teaming up nicely and I'm getting gainz!!!!

I absolutely love Magnum Opus! I currently use it mixed with my Magnum Hi5 BCAA's. It is not only great for intra workout drink you can also use it for late night training sessions for a pre workout and not have to worry about falling asleep! Definitely always in my arsenal of products! This product is not only a stimulant free intra/ pre workout drink it can also balance your PH levels, offsets muscle fatigue which means MORE reps, MORE weight and MORE pumps!!!

The "anabolic rush" you get is the B-vitamin skin burning sensation. You can take 2 capsules of Niacin and get the same effect. That aside... The flavor tastes like fruit soda gone flat. I ended up having to mix it with other stuff to get past that flavor. I like that it doesn't have caffeine in it, but I probably won't buy it again. P.S. Am I the only one tired of supplement and protein marketing with all the silly hype descriptions like, "Super Nitro Anabolic Rush from our patented Triple-Engineered Muscle-Building Molecules."

One word - INSANE! I am a big user of stimulant pre-workouts but for my late night workouts I didn't want to take anything that would keep me up all night. I worried about taking a pre-workout that wasn't high in stimulants seeing as I felt I would be lacking that "killer instinct" in the gym. Boy was I wrong with Opus! I was energized and ready to go to work but after my workout I didn't find that I "crashed" like some pre-workouts cause. I was able to go home eat and sleep peacefully that night. The flavor is delicious too! Sometimes I drink it during my workout as well to keep my pumped up the entire time.

Wow, can't say enough about how great of an intra-workout supplement this is. I was blown away by all of the ingredients it contained but it definitely helps me push even further & harder during my workouts. It does make my water bottles a bit carbonated though so when I mix the powder and shake it, I have to let some of the air out of the bottle for fear of it expanding too much. I used two scoops during my workouts and drank them spaced out over the entire session and loved how it helped my performance.

Orange Dreamsicle is the best tasting flavour out there. You will never go back to drinking soda, after you try this. It it that delicious and you'll get addicted. I tried it pre-workout when I was taking a break from stims. You get that clean focus as soon as you sip it! That's the best thing about this product. It also delivers crazy pump and endurance. Opus stacked with Limitless intra-workout or a pre-workout of your choice, will delivery the best pump and endurance during the workouts... making you look full and go rep after rep and set after set without burning out. I highly recommend this product and you won't be disappointed!

OPUS is something I've used on and off for a few years now. It's much different from your typical BCAA / intra workout supplement. It contains a unique mix of other amino acids, ergogenic aids and hydration agents to help you grind out those all important final muscle-building reps. Their new dreamscicle flavor reminds me a lot of orange Fanta. OPUS is slightly effervescent and that fizziness mixed with the slightly tart orange is delicious! The finishing note is slightly like whipped cream instead of vanilla ice cream. I like that as that finishing note is clean instead of too sweet, which can easily happen when mixing orange and cream flavors.

First off, let's talk about how amazing the new flavor of Opus, Orange Dreamsicle, tastes! It is so light and refreshing! I can't get enough! If for no other reason, Opus is worth buying just to sip on and enjoy! However, it is also a well-formulated intra-workout! At two scoops, Opus delivers solid doses of leucine, beta-alanine, citrulline, and lots of electrolytes and a few other amino acids! This formula definitely enhanced my physical energy in the gym and helped me take my lifts to the next level! Opus also helped enhance my pumps and vascularity during workouts, especially when stacked with Limitless. The tingles from beta-alanine are strong from this combination, but I love the tingles, and they are definitely worth the bump in endurance that accompany them! I also loved the instant effervescence of Opus. It is my favorite thing when I have a drink that fizzes! So exciting! I definitely encourage others to try out Opus! Look out for the Orange Dreamsicle when it comes to bb,com! Profile: 9/10 Taste: 10/10 Effect: 10/10

Quality supplement as usual. As I am on a stim break this helps me get through my workout and I really like the flavor. I would love it if they include the grape flavor from Limitless in OPUS.

I've used OPUS many times. I've tried Blue Yasberry before, and absolutely loved the flavoring. I more recently tried Orange Dreamsicle, and let me tell you it is AMAZING! Can't wait for that flavor to come onto BB! As far as the preworkout itself goes, it is PERFECTLY dosed. I couldn't ask for anything more. This is a great product that consistently hypes me up for the gym. Without containing caffeine, OPUS is a great product to use during a stimulant break, or to use in a combination with a stimulant product. This product will give you the kick you need to increase your intensity during workouts, and you will not experience any sort of crash (as there are no stimulants). If you're looking for a new stim-free Preworkout, here it is!

I tried this as a new approach to approach to gaining energy and making it last with focus. Unfortunately the products didn't meet up to my vigorous expectations. I play on semi-professional to professional level tennis where energy, focus and stamina are keys to winning. Taking Opus in this scenario didn't give me any energy/focus or stamina during my 2-3 hour tennis matches that are very intense when competing provincially and nationally. It may work for others but not for me and will try a different products. I would have liked to get a refund if not satisfied but that is not given. Unfortunately I spent $50 on the store who recommended it but she said it's a trial and error. I told her those are costly mistakes so next time I'll do my homework more. I found another products that replaces electrolytes like Opus does same size container for $19.99 vs the $50 I paid for Opus. Next time something this pricey I will ask for samples first and see if they really works. Hope this review was helpful. I kept detailed notes of my performance when using it and it felt both more than a placebo. Cheers.

When I first tried this, I was looking for a stim free preworkout for my night time workouts and I was not expecting anything crazy. Let me tell you, this has started to become my overall preworkout! This stuff kicks in very fast, and even with no stuns, you get very clean energy and a pretty decent sweat going on for 20-30m after drinking. Secondly, I notice the pumps; what ever muscle group I am working after drinking this, I definitely can feel it full out more and that helps with the mind-body connection of controlling the weight. The blue yaz berry is one of the best tasting pre workouts I have tasted. However, the fruit punch kinda taste like chemicles. I really enjoy this product and will definitely keep buying it. Already 2 tubs in, using 2 scoops.
