Product Overview


The ultimate in post-workout nutrition!

  • Postworkout Lean Mass Accelerator*
  • Packed with easily absorbed hydro whey and free form aminos
  • A full daily dose of advanced creatines
  • Loaded with leucine to trigger the anabolic growth response*
  • Supercharged carb complex to spike insulin, transfer nutrients and replace glycogen
  • Available in refreshing fruit flavors

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.

For post workout recovery this works. I've been convinced all Animal products work for anyone for any goal. Don't forget to put in the hard work though.

This is the first post-workout supplement that Ive actually felt working. I do a post workout cooldown on the treadmill while drinking this, and I have actually felt the energy returning. Not a caffeine type of rush, but a boost of muscle power that makes me feel like I could do another few sets. I used "dark matter" for a while, but after switching to Torrent, its my only post-workout drink now. It has the perfect ratio of protein to carbs that you need. Most people only have protein post workout, but you NEED the carbs as well. If you're on the fence, jump off and get into the torrent!

Nobody has reviewed Torrent in almost a year, so I figured I would give it a go. You get your carbs, protein, creatine, and some extra aminos all in one shake. It looks like it's expensive, but if you are used to taking something like Post Jym and a protein shake, you'll find it's pretty comparable. I like getting everything in one shake, and I think the amounts are enough. The formula has changed since what has listed as of this review. The bottle I got is now only 290 calories with slightly less carbs, which is cool, but they also changed the protein so while they talk about hydrolyzed whey a lot in the description, it's now in a blend that is "whey protein concentrate, partially hydrolyzed whey protein" so if that was your reason for getting it, note that you are going to have no idea how much hydrolyzed whey you get now since we it's a proprietary blend. It could literally be 19 grams concentrate and 1 gram hydrolyzed. It's an old school product, so if you want beta-alanine or betaine in your post, you won't get them here, but that doesn't bother me. 3 grams of creatine seems to work well for my body too. Right now, I do Dr. Jekyll preworkout, so I can get 2.5 beta alanine and an extra gram of creatine for the day in there. Seems to work pretty well for me. The aminos are in proprietary blends, but you get a good dose of leucine and potentially some good other aminos to boost the product's effectiveness. Taste-wise, I think it's pretty good. It does have a weird creamy/milky/vanilla-ish flavor in the aftertaste/background, that I think is from the hydrolyzed whey but maybe is from waxy maize. Either way, it's not a bad taste, just know that you're going to have that going on in addition to the cherry flavor. I'm trying sour citrus next. Overall, this does a good job of timed nutrition after weight training and I continue to use it on my heavy weights days and then other non-carb posts when I do other types of workouts. Recommended.

I starting using this a month ago in place of my post workout protein. This stuff is awesome, I didn't care for the taste at first though. The less water, the better. It's easy to drink after an intense workout, something I've had trouble finding in a post workout drink. Mixes smooth, and it taste more like a jolly rancher is you use less water. I only take this after a workout, I stack this with Shock Therapy as well. Since I've started using this, and a change in my diet, I lost 12 pounds of fat and notice a significant difference in muscle tone. I highly recommend this product to anyone

I am not a novice at this and have been doing it seriously for only three years. I am very much in-tune with my body and have my sleeping, eating, and habits in check. I previously took this product for many months. But I have not taken it since October 2016. It is now July 2017, and I tried it again. I am just starting a cutting phase and seeing nice results. Within 48 hours of restarting this product, I am seeing unexplained flab in my gut. It is from this product and I cannot for the life of me figure out the physiology at play here. It is uber-frustrating. Needless to say, I am not using any more of it. Of course, YMMV....

Flavor: Green Apple Avalanche Taste: This is a good flavor. It taste like a green apple Jolly Rancher, except it has more of a tart flavor to it. I recommend going on the lower side with water. As with any product, the more water, the more diluted the flavor gets. So less water means you will get a little more sweetness. I do love the fact it has a nice apple flavor that won’t make you feel like you just had an extremely sweet dessert. I give the flavor a 9 out of 10. It’s a very good flavor, but it could be a little sweeter. Just my opinion. Another thing to keep in mind, this review is based off of the 3 scoop recommendation. Post Workout Benefits: Torrent gives you creatine, protein, aminos, carbs, and enough sugar to spike your insulin. This is all crammed together in one bottle. The only stipulation is you have to take 3 scoops. Some people might would rather go with less scoops, to cut back on cals, carbs, sugar, etc. With ingredients like whey protein hydrolysates and waxy maize, it’s formulated in a way to give you faster absorption. I have noticed that when I drink this post-workout it becomes a very good appetite suppressor. For the most part, I work out in the afternoons, so I’m typically hungry after I get home. Even though I have been getting in good meals post-workout, it would be easy to delay grabbing something to eat after drinking this. I definitely feel as if this gets in your system quick. Label: The first half of the label looks good, but then you get the Torrent Proprietary Blend. 18,000mg sounds really good, but man, I’d like to really see each ingredient broken down. The good thing is you do at least have each section categorized: 8,000mg of an Anti-catabolic complex (leucines), 7,000mg of a Volubolic amino blend (taurine, glutamine, l-phenylalanine, citrulline malate), and 3,000mg of a Creabolic complex (creatines). You’re just kind of left hanging when it comes to the specifics. Not a deal breaker, just something I wish they would update. I give label a 8 out of 10. Mixability: Mixes great with water in a shaker cup. Minor settling, but that’s to be expected when you’re using 3 scoops. I give mixability a 8 out of 10. Value: With the 3.28lb bottle you get 15 servings for approx. $2.30 a serving. Good products are worth paying for, but with only 15 servings, it is a little on the expensive side. I give value a 7 out of 10. I didn’t drop it too much, because you are getting a lot in each container. Overall Score: 8 out of 10. I believe you will enjoy this product. Pros: Fast absorption (Whey Protein Hydros, and Waxy Maize). Not your typical protein shake flavor (green apple). This can be used for bulking (3 scoops gives you 302 cals, 52 carbs, 20 grams of protein, 26 grams of sugar and 3 grams of creatine). Cons: Proprietary blend, pricey, and requires 3 scoops to get full benefits.

Amazing product by an amazing and reputable brand. I have bought this product many times over the years and will continue to buy. The green apple avalanche and cherry berry blast flavors are to die for! Not the biggest fan of the sour citrus rush though. It's still pretty good, but it simply does not compare to the other two flavors which are ridiculously good. The profile is great and worth the money. If I had the money to run this year long, I definitely would!

I have tried many different post work out shakes over the 15 years I have been bodybuilding and this one is by far the best. The taste is incredible and refreshing. It's packed with everything needed post workout eliminating the need to buy extra supps. I have noticeable gains on it where i was in somewhat of a plateau before hand. Totally recommend.

Great post-workout shake, especially if you're trying to put on size! 20g of protein, 50 carbs, BCAAs, and your daily dose of CREATINE too! What's not to love? It's a legit all in one post-workout drink that tastes great (green apple avalanche)! Sometimes its hard getting all the protein, carbs, and everything else in one shot and this has it all. Perfect for people who hit the gym first thing in the morning and are on the go!

This product is seriously worth it. I usually take this after my workouts, but if you wanted to you could take it during your workout too. Torrent doesn't fill you up so you should have room for a meal after using it, and it doesn't make you feel bloated like when you use whey. Also, I have noticed that I don't feel sore in the morning that I sometimes felt after going to the gym when I used Torrent the night before. This product is really good, and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a good post workout. The taste is great, the way it blends is just as good, and the ingredient list is impressive. What more do I need to say, do yourself a favor and buy some Torrent! Edit: After using this product for about 2 weeks now I have noticed slight gain in weight so it seems to be working!

If you actually go through each ingredient on the profile and check out what it's for, you'd think that they got this knowledge from an Angel of the Lord, like Archangel Gabriel or something. Someone at Universal spoke to a burning bush and recieved the knowledge to craft Torrent, I swear. It's a perfect post-workout drink. It blends really easy, is actually quite refreshing despite the tart taste, and I really look forward to drinking it after training. So far I just had the Green Apple Avalanche, and it's pretty darn tasty. I'm on my second tub, I might try another flavor later on down the road but when I like something at first I tend to stick with it for a minute. Only downside is the price, I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with it. As good as it is, it seems fair and I am very much in favor of paying someone for their hard work but one of these tubs lasts you about a little over two weeks... You do get what you pay for.

I went through a 15 serving container of Torrent in the Green Apple flavor and I was really surprised of the effects from this supplement. I used it the first week as a post workout beverage and it mixed up very well but you get a huge head of foam so you MUST use a large shaker which holds at least 28 oz of water so that it will mix properly. I also recommend mixing it at least 5-10 min before you are ready to drink it so the foam can settle. The apple flavor takes a few tries to get use to but it grows on you and actually taste like apple taffy candy. The first week using it I felt almost instant recovery by the first couple of days and my muscles looked pretty full very quickly. When I consumed it post workout it would fill me up and I wasn't really ready to eat a meal for at least 90 min. The 2nd week I tested it out as a intra-workout beverage and it DEFINITELY gave you more stamina and energy to continue training hard for an extended period of time. This supplement is definitely effective either as a post workout or intra-workout beverage and the effects come on really fast and that's what impressed me about this supplement and I definitely recommend it though it is a bit pricey you don't have to add anything to it and if you can catch a sale on it and you like this type of all in product I'd stock up it !!! This definitely a good Universal supplement that goes under the radar.
