We've all experienced the pump...that feeling of your muscles blowing up after doing a set of intense lifts during your workout. You do these sets, you feel the muscle fullness and see your arms swell in front of you, but within minutes of concluding your workout, you lose the pump. That's just how it is, and how it's always been. Until now...
At PES, we've done some pretty groundbreaking things and have been the first company to bring a handful of novel and now-popular ingredients to the market. overline;But we wanted to do something different here. We wanted to take the "pump product" category and permanently turn it on its head. And after over a year of diligent research and development, we have finally created a product that doesn't just give you a pump that lasts 5 or 10 minutes after your workout; High Volume is the first ever product in the category with a formula focused on building muscle with pumps that last hours.
We had 3 goals with this product:
And we've undoubtedly taken these goals and crushed them.
Let's take a closer look at how we achieved what was once deemed impossible...
For a long time, it's been unclear whether or not "the pump" actually improves muscle growth. Recent research now suggests that nitric oxide (NO), one of the major compounds that produces pumps during exercise, is directly involved in building muscle [1-3]. Not only does nitric oxide improve bioenergetics in muscle so that you can move more weight for more reps , but it also can in fact build muscle [2,3]. So what do we want to do? Elevate NO, and keep it elevated for hours!
But here's the catch: most products do not use ingredients that actually elevate NO in the body. And even the few that do, you've deflated by the time you get home from the gym. They may induce pumps, but these pumps are short-lived and do not produce the lasting effects that true nitric oxide increases can provide.
So naturally, in High Volume, we addressed both these issues. We found compounds that actually elevate NO, and we found a way to bypass the issue of NO's short half-life, or active time in the body. And this is how we've permanently redefined the pump category... and permanently changed the understanding of why a pump is important.
Remember…the key is to increase NO, do it quickly, and have it last for its long term benefits. In our search for a long-lasting pump ingredient, we focused on a compound that has been used by for the purpose of venodilation (expansion of your veins for roadmap vascularity and pumps). This compound is nitrate.
Nitrates, in addition to having an 8+ hour half-life for long lasting pumps, use a unique pathway to boost NO. To be specific, nitrates bypass the enzyme that L-Citrulline relies on, eNOS, which has a “saturation point” at which no further supplementation can increase its activity. This means that you can bypass the body’s natural restriction points for unparalleled muscle pumps with the combination for nitrate and citrulline. You see, nitrates act as an “NO donor,” meaning they convert to NO directly via a 2-step process…no enzymes or restriction points involved !
In addition to all of this, it looks like nitrates can actually augment protein synthesis in muscle tissue…which means they can also have a purpose independent of NO elevation [5, 6]!
Some of you might be asking, why did we use Arginine Nitrate as our nitrate source out of all the possible amino-nitrates? Easy answer…the nitrate is increasing NO, but the arginine plays a very important role when combined with nitrate. We found that arginine actually has the ability to reduce nitrate tolerance ! This makes Arginine Nitrate the most superior form of nitrate available. Gone are the days of diminishing returns…High Volume gets BETTER, not worse, with time.
There are two main body “compartments” that we want to expand/volumize to create a long lasting pumped-up look: the first is your plasma, which is essentially the bloodstream, and the second is the intracellular space, which is your muscle cells. The bloodstream is in close contact with your muscle cells, so by expanding both of these at the same time, we create “pumps on pumps” for maximum volumization…aka High Volume!
HydroMax® is a high potency glycerol compound. Glycerol is an ingredient that gets transported to your plasma after ingestion…and it doesn’t leave the plasma for a long time. While in the plasma, glycerol sucks up water by acting as a sponge. The net result is hyperhydration. The long half-life of glycerol in the plasma means that with repeated use of High Volume as your preworkout, you volumize your plasma more and more.
Unlike some pump products that show diminishing effects with use, High Volume can do just the opposite…with each use, you can achieve a greater level of “High Volume.”
Also importantly, many glycerol products on the market use glycerol monostearate, which is less than ¼ glycerol and ¾ saturated fat. HydroMax® is 65% glycerol, and there’s no nasty floating grit to clog up your shaker and stick in-between your teeth.
Taurine is a compound that localizes primarily to the intracellular muscle compartment, and like glycerol, where taurine goes, water follows. This makes taurine a great compound to complement HydroMax®. Taurine is one of the most underrated compounds on the market, mostly because it is rarely used properly. Here is High Volume, it works in tandem with HydroMax®, where its abilities can shine through.
You have never experienced anything like this. Every product tells you that…but what company continues to deliver? We don’t put our money in mass marketing, we put it into developing the best product for the consumer. If you’ve been following the science closely, you don’t need me to tell you that. Our testers came out of their workouts unable to reach their arms over their heads from the massive pumps…hell, they came out of their workouts looking like they wore a shirt two sizes too small from all the pump they experienced. The best quote we got from one of our initial testers was, “I think my pumps got pumps”!
And it got better with every workout. We did what they said was impossible…we created a product that actually elevated Nitric Oxide to a new level. Once you experience High Volume, you will call every other pump product flat. It’s time to FEEL THE VOLUME, and get with the brand that brings the formulas that set the standard.
You’ll look forward to your next workout knowing you’ll walk out of the gym looking like a bigger version of the guy who walked in. You’ll see size gains and expansion of muscle tissue at a rate you’ve never seen before…and you’ll constantly want to train another group of muscle to see what High Volume can do next.
This is the product that has redefined the pump category permanently.
