What is anabolic? Protein synthesis. Nitrogen retention. "Nutrient-partitioning". The all new Animal M-Stak. A natural supplement which helps boost anabolism and perfect for the classic "hardgainer" in all of us.
“I don't need bullshit supplements out there for those 110 lb. guys... I just need hardcore stuff that works. I'm a hardgainer. Not the strongest man in the gym, but I hold my own. I'm 5'8" at 230 lb. with 18" arms.Animal M-Stak helped me put on more mass and train like an animal in the gym. You guys keep up the good work and I"ll train my balls off in the gym and spread the word of Animal to everyone who asks me."
- K. Ly, San Francisco, CA
From green beginner to diehard vet, we’ve all gone through it. Skidding to a halt, our progress idles on a wretched plateau. Can’t gain another pound, workouts are stale, lifts are static. This is the hardgainer’s syndrome, and from the most slender of ectomorphs to the most muscular endomorph, we’ve all been there. Desperate to ignite new growth, we’ll try almost anything.
For those of us so dedicated to this game, these frequent moments of desperation have come to an end. The new Animal M-Stak is here, more powerful than ever, designed to obliterate plateaus and spark an explosion of raw muscle hypertrophy. Building on the legacy built by the original Animal M-Stak formula, the new Animal M-Stak has taken all of the most potent components of its predecessor and cranked it up to the next level.
Animal M-Stak has long been built on a foundation of natural anabolic flavones. These substances mimic the actions of bodybuilding pharmaceuticals, but without the harsh and undesirable side effects. Born from Eastern European athletic studies, these anabolic flavones have long been highly touted as performance enhancers capable of eliciting dramatic gains in lean muscle mass. The new Animal M-Stak formula combines the most potent of these anabolic compounds in more hearty dosages, making the long storied anabolic potential of the product all the greater.
Primary among these flavones are Beta-Ecdysterone and Methoxyisoflavone. These ingredients have the ability to shuttle nutrients toward lean mass accumulation, a process known as nutrient partitioning. Beyond this, these anabolic flavones promote enhanced protein synthesis and nitrogen retention. These are the mechanisms most crucial in the process of new muscle growth, brought about by Animal M-Stak without any hormonal manipulation.
With Animal M-Stak, you also get a mega potent anti-catabolic amino blend. With advanced forms of leucine and the other BCAAs spearheading the mixture, these aminos work from a cellular level to directly stimulate protein synthesis. Studies show that by adding leucine along with a protein/carb meal, you get even greater whole body net protein balance than just consuming protein and carbs alone. These aminos help to stimulate muscle recovery and protein synthesis via translation regulations, all through non-hormonal means. They do this by manipulating key muscle growth regulators such as mTOR, PKB, p70s6k, 4E-BP1, FOXO and MAFbx. These aminos essentially work as a signal for turning on the muscle building process, allowing increased muscle anabolism following a training session.
You also get potent insulin potentiators which work to maximize insulin production. Potent compounds such as K-R-ALA and CinnulinPF™ help your body to utilize ultra anabolic insulin both effectively and efficiently. This equates to increased uptake of glycogen and increased muscle cell volume which contributes to that full, pumped feeling when you workout.
Animal M-Stak also delivers a potent energy blend, packed with powerful, natural stimulants, which are designed to propel you through even the most grueling of training sessions. The addition of this complex, easily identifiable by its red capsule, makes Animal M-Stak perfect for pre-training, lighting that fire under your ass that we all need from time to time.
Finally, Animal M-Stak’s M-Factor transport complex works to maximize nutrient utilization to ensure all of the powerful components of the formula are processed to maximum efficacy. Using ginger root extract coupled with the ultra potent absorption enhancer bergmottin, you can be sure that the myriad growth factors in the Animal M-Stak formula are working to their full capacity and are not going to waste.
Animal M-Stak floods your system with an abundance of anabolic nutrients, switching your muscle building signals on and turning them to full blast. Combining potent flavones and sterones in hefty doses with the most anabolic of amino blends supported by an array pf cutting edge asaptogens in a single pretraining pack designed for optimum absorption, the new Animal M-Stak takes non-hormonal anabolics to a whole new level. Animal M-Stak, The Ultimate Hardgainer’s Stack, has come to turn "hardgainers" into "hard" gainers.

Animal Pump - The Pre-workout Muscle Volumizing Stack! ...Up The Volume!
The most complete, comprehensive creatine foundational supplement. You get a full daily dose of the most cutting-edge creatines, plus a ton of other actives including NO boosters, cell volumizers, energy complex, antioxidants–all in one convenient "pack." This baby's got it all.
"This stuff's great! Works within half an hour, not like your typical creatine supplement. Gives you a pump throughout your workout from beginning to end. Highly recommended for anyone who is serious about getting big and strong."
- Jimmy V.
The pump... It is the holy grail of bodybuilding. It is that most addictive of sensations that keeps gym rats hooked for life. It is euphoric and invigorating, an intense swelling of the muscle caused by a training-induced cascade of blood... It is a rebirth experienced on each worthwhile trip to the gym. The pump is instant gratification... An automatic reward for all of the blood, sweat and tears you spill on the gym floor. The pump is instantaneous growth... It is the immediate invigoration of dormant muscle fibers.
There are days, however, where no matter what you do, the pump is seemingly unattainable... Set after wasted set, you toil in vain. Nothing. Nada. Zilch. You yearn to be pumped and swole and instead you are beaten and weary. On other days, the pump is fleeting. As quickly as it arrives, it is gone... Leaving both your ego and your muscle bellies deflated. The disappointment in your inability to achieve and sustain the cherished pump is not merely due to the pleasure of a superficial physical response, but in the fact that an opportunity for new growth has been squandered. The pump ain't just for fun-it is crucial to getting big.
The pump is essential in the promotion of new muscle growth. With each pump-inducing rep, nutrient rich fluid and blood fills the working cells, engorging the muscle. This occurrence kick starts the anabolic process. The muscle cell walls are stretched and strained and practically bursting with fluid, this is called cell volumization. Assuming you are eating and supplementing properly, this fluid should be chock full of the kind of nourishing elements specifically designed to help you do the one thing you came here to do... Grow. This is where Animal Pump kicks down the door and goes to work.
Now ya know why you need the pump-that feeling of having your muscles fully engorged with blood is what drives a bodybuilder. Once the pump is there, fueling the muscles with the right nutrients is where optimal gains can be reached. Animal Pump is this fuel. Getting the right blend of nutrients is essential. Animal Pump has it all, from it's synergistic cutting edge creatine blend, NO Blast Complex, proprietary energy and concentration mix, down to it's cell supportive antioxidant complex and specialized transport blend which shuttles the Pump to your starving muscles.
From a strength and muscle cell volumizing point of view, it gets no better than Animal Pump, because Pump is packed with a new school matrix of creatines-a full, daily dose. Bodybuilders have used creatine for a decade now with good results and over the years, science has brought more and more advanced forms of creatine to the fore. Creatine is a core, basic bodybuilding supplement and as such, Animal Pump is a welcome addition to the Animal line.
When you perform a heavy set, intracellular ATP levels decrease. Creatine helps restore these ATP levels. But not just any old creatine will do the job; Animal Pump includes only the best. Taking creatine supplementation to the next level, Animal Pump combines Magnesium Creatine Chelate (MCC), a patented form of creatine, with the newest sensation Creatine Ethyl Ester (CEE) and Tri-Creatine Matrix (TCM) to deliver maximum benefits. This blend combats the creatine absorption issues and bloating of yesteryear, ensuring your creatine reaches your growing muscles and not the toilet bowl. Pump ensures that the ergogenic effects of creatine are maximized, eliminating any unwanted side effects and making the creatine non-responder of yesteryear an extinct species.
During an intense workout, one of the limiting factors of your muscular power and endurance is oxygen and the availability of oxygen-rich nutrients to muscle tissue. Our NO Blast Complex is a blend of compounds designed to combat this problem. From a bodybuilding point of view, this means incredible muscular pumps and a greater ability to funnel clean oxygen and nutrient-rich blood into your muscles. This results in optimal muscular fullness and cellular nutrient uptake and translates into what all bodybuilders crave-greater size gains.
Even if you are strong and pumped, how can you possibly tear the gym apart if you're energy deprived and lacking mental concentration? Daily life is filled with constant roadblocks that try to throw you off in the iron game. So when it comes to energy, Animal Pump has got your back. Animal Pump'sEnergy Rush Complex gives you that energy boost that gets you fired up for training and the focus and mental acuity so vital to establishing the mind-muscle connection. These powerful substances reach deep into the muscle cell to provide long-lasting energy and power, thus delaying the onset of muscle fatigue. That performance and focus edge can be the difference between the physique of a weekend warrior and a top competitor.
We ain't done yet, bro... Animal Pump incorporates a comprehensive antioxidant blend designed to protect your cells from the heavy onslaught of hardcore lifting. Heavy lifting leaves behind free radicals, which are damaging if left alone. Free radical production is also increased with enhanced nitric oxide release. We included the best antioxidants to make sure these free radicals are cleaned out leaving your immune system strong.
Last but certainly not least, a supreme nutrient transport complex, a blend of insulin boosters and absorption enhancers, ties the Animal Pump formula together. This complex efficiently and quickly draws all of these critical nutrients to your muscles. Insulin is especially important for channeling this powerful cutting edge blend into your muscle cells. Sugar-laden formulas of the past helped boost insulin levels, however they also added unnecessary carbohydrates.
With Animal Pump no carbs are needed for maximum insulin potentiating effects. Animal Pump's innovative insulin boosters can significantly enhance the pump, decrease lactic acid build up and rapidly saturate the muscle with cutting edge creatines and essential nutrients for growth. This is further amplified by specialized absorption enhancers, which ensure that Animal Pump's complexes are fully absorbed and transported to the muscles where they will be fully utilized.
The pump is an integral component to new muscle growth. It is literally the "lifeblood" of your bodybuilding pursuits, giving meaning to monotonous training sessions and giving nourishment to your depleted muscle cells. Without the pump, you're going nowhere... Harness its power and the sky's the limit. If you wanna blow up, with seam-tearing, stretch-marking mass and personal record breaking strength, Animal Pump is your holy grail. It's the pump, in a pack.
Animal Pump can be taken year round, without cycling off. Like Animal Pak, Animal Flex and Animal Nitro/G, Pump is designed as a core or "foundational supplement". For bigger gains, consider stacking Pump with Stak.
