Magnum® Hard Muscle Builder™
ALL NATURAL LEAN MUSCLE GAINER!
Bigger, harder, leaner, more muscular, better energy, higher testosterone, less stress and anxiety, quicker recovery! Finally, a nutritional supplement, backed by science, that delivers the physique results you’ve been looking for!
When HARD MUSCLE BUILDER™ is combined with high intensity weight training your gains will be quicker and more consistent than ever before. Even better, taking HARD MUSCLE BUILDER™ on a low calorie diet, as used to prepare for a physique show or photo shoot, you’ll retain more muscle throughout your diet and be a bigger, leaner, more densely muscled athlete. If that wasn’t enough a key ingredient in HARD MUSCLE BUILDER™ was shown to increase strength, size, and produce a greater decrease in body fat over a placebo group.
HARD MUSCLE BUILDER™ also boosts your immune system, increases your testosterone levels, combats stress, and lowers the muscle-cannibalizing hormone Cortisol. Now you can stay natural while achieving the lean muscular body you’ve always dreamt of having.
The ingredient highlights:
myHMB® helps prevent muscle wasting and protein breakdown, improves exercise performance, and reduces recovery time. Studies have shown HMB has a nitrogen sparing effect, slows blood lactate accumulation resulting in greater time to reach VO2 max, improves aerobic capacity, and aids fat loss from exercise.
In one human study using a 1.5-gram daily dose of HMB versus a placebo, the HMB group showed decreased muscle damage and protein degradation, a 13% increase in total weight lifted, and a 1.8lb gain in lean body mass versus a placebo in only three weeks!
HMB has been shown to affect muscle protein turnover by stimulating protein synthesis via the mTor pathway, and by decreasing catabolic signalling pathways. HMB may also stimulate protein synthesis through the growth hormone/IGF-1 axis.
Intro: One human study using both a 1.5-gram daily dose and a 3g daily dose of HMB versus a placebo, the HMB group showed decreased muscle damage and protein degradation, both a 13% increase and a 18.4% increase in total weight lifted, and a dose dependent lean muscle gain of between 1.8lb and 2.7lb versus a placebo in only three weeks.
Title: Effect of leucine metabolite beta -hydroxy-beta -methylbutyrate on muscle metabolism during resistance-exercise training.
Author & Source: J Appl Physiol. 1996 Nov;81(5):2095–104.
Body Text: The effects of dietary supplementation with the leucine metabolite beta-hydroxy-beta-methylbutyrate (HMB) were studied. Subjects were randomized among three levels of HMB supplementation (0, 1.5 or 3.0 g HMB/day) and two protein levels (normal, 117 g/day, or high, 175 g/day) and weight lifted for 1.5 h 3 days/wk for 3 wk. HMB significantly decreased the exercise-induced rise in muscle proteolysis as measured by urine 3-methylhistidine during the first 2 wk of exercise (linear decrease, P < 0.04). Plasma creatine phosphokinase was also decreased with HMB supplementation (week 3, linear decrease, P < 0.05). Weight lifted was increased by HMB supplementation when compared with the unsupplemented subjects during each week of the study (linear increase, P < 0.02).
Graph: 1.5g HMB group gains 13% total weight lifted and a 1.8lb lean muscle gain versus the placebo group. 3g HMB group gains 18.4% total weight lifted and a 2.7lb lean muscle gain versus the placebo group.
Conclusion: In conclusion, supplementation with either 1.5 or 3 g HMB/day can prevent exercise-induced proteolysis and/or muscle damage and result in larger gains in muscle function associated with resistance training.
MORE REPS & LESS MUSCLE DAMAGE
PureKIC® (Alpha-ketoisocaproate Calcium) is a keto acid of the amino acid leucine. KIC is anti-catabolic, which means muscle growth by moving the body from a catabolic (muscle wasting) to anabolic (muscle building) state. Studies have shown that KIC increases muscle protein synthesis, antioxidant action, improves nitrogen balance, fat loss, HMB synthesis, insulin release, anticatabolic action, ammonia scavenging and immune system stimulation.
Intro: Researchers demonstrated significant reductions in signs and symptoms of exercise-induced muscle damage following eccentric exercise when they gave their subjects a combination of HMB and KIC daily for 14 days.
Title: Supplementation with beta-hydroxy-beta-methylbutyrate (HMB) and alpha-ketoisocaproic acid (KIC) reduces signs and symptoms of exercise-induced muscle damage in man.
Author & Source: Int J Sport Nutr Exerc Metab. 2005 Aug;15(4):413-24.
Body Text: This study examined the effects of beta-hydroxyl-beta-methylbutyrate (HMB) and alpha-ketoisocaproic acid (KIC) supplementation on signs and symptoms of exercise-induced muscle damage following a single bout of eccentrically biased resistance exercise. Six non-resistance trained male subjects performed an exercise protocol designed to induce muscle damage on two separate occasions, performed on the dominant or non-dominant arm in a counter-balanced crossover design. Subjects were assigned to an HMB/KIC or placebo treatment for 14 days prior to exercise in the counter-balanced crossover design. One repetition maximum (1RM), plasma creatine kinase activity (CK), delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS), limb girth, and range of motion (ROM) were determined pre-exercise, at 1h, 24 h, 48 h, and 72 h post-exercise. DOMS and the percentage changes in 1RM, limb girth, and ROM all changed over the 72 h period (P < 0.05). HMB//IC supplementation attenuated the CK response, the percentage decrement in 1RM, and the percentage increase in limb girth (P < 0.05). In addition, DOMS was reduced at 24 h post-exercise (P < 0.05) in the HMB/KIC treatment.
Graph: HMB + KIC reduced DOMS versus placebo group.
Conclusion: In conclusion, 14 days of HMB and KIC supplementation reduced signs and symptoms of exercise-induced muscle damage in non-resistance trained males following a single bout of eccentrically biased resistance exercise.
MORE STRENGTH, SIZE & TESTOSTERONE
KSM-66® is a standardized extract of the adaptogen Ashwagandha. KSM-66® produced significantly greater increases in muscle strength and size over placebo groups, and significantly greater reductions of exercise-induced muscle damage. KSM-66 has been evaluated in 13 “Gold Standard” human clinical trials. It collaborates with major academic and research institutes. All KSM-66 clinical studies follow gold standards of substantiation: randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled designs.
For a herb to operate at a systemic level, it needs a complex blend of phytochemicals with a wide range of actions on the human body. Ashwagandha is one of the very few herbs in the world with a complex blend of this type. As ashwagandha operates at the systemic level, it has 20+ distinct applications described in herbal medicine textbooks. KSM-66 is created via a process that took 14 years of R&D to develop and refine. KSM-66 is the best ashwagandha extract on the world market today in the sense that it is the highest concentration full-spectrum extract available today. A “full-spectrum” extract is an extract that maintains the balance of the various constituents as in the original herb, without over-representing any one constituent. The ashwagandha herb’s efficacy is believed to be derived from a complex blend of active constituents, mainly alkaloids like withanine, somniferine, tropine, and steroidal lactones called withanolides. All these constituents need to be present in their natural proportions, which is why it is important for an extract to be full-spectrum. KSM-66 Ashwagandha is standardized to the highest percentage of withanolides in the world, >5% by HPLC, derived only from the roots of the plant. Standardization implies that an extract provides consistent dosage delivery and guaranteed potency. In addition to the desired quantum of withanolides, the nutrient rich KSM-66 also contains short and long chain amino acids, fructo-oligosaccharides, Vitamin A, calcium and Iron.
Intro: One study of KSM-66 showed a significant increase in muscle size and strength as well as a significant decrease in exercise induced muscle damage verus a placebo group.

Author & Source: Wankhede, S., Langade, D., Joshi, K., Sinha, S. R., & Bhattacharyya, S. (2015). Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition, 12(1), 43.
Body Text: KSM-66® produced significantly greater increases in muscle strength and size over placebo groups, and significantly greater reductions of exercise-induced muscle damage. The KSM-66® group experienced a significantly greater increase in muscle strength on bench-press (26.4 kg for placebo versus 46.0 kg for KSM-66®) and leg-extension (9.8 kg for placebo versus 14.5 kg for KSM-66®). The KSM-66® group also showed a significantly greater arm muscle size increase (5.3 cm2 for placebo versus 8.6 cm2 for KSM-66®) and chest (1.4 cm for placebo versus 3.3 cm for KSM-66®). The KSM-66® group also demonstrated a significantly greater reduction of exercise-induced muscle damage, a significantly greater increase in testosterone levels (+15%), and significantly greater decrease in body fat percentage when compared with the placebo group.
Graph: Lots of good stuff here for a comparison graph and/or graphs.
Conclusion: This study reports that ashwagandha supplementation is associated with significant increases in muscle mass and strength and suggests that ashwagandha supplementation may be useful in conjunction with a resistance training program.
