Plazma™ is designed for elite high-performance athletes and serious bodybuilders and lifters. At this level, hard-working muscle requires advanced nutritional support before, during, and after training and competition.
Plazma™ contains a unique blend of fast-acting di- and tripeptides that produce biological activities and effects in muscle for performance, growth and recovery that go far beyond other proteins and amino acids. The formula also contains a special carbohydrate complex that in addition to increasing metabolic rate, drives the formula's di- and tripeptides and other key nutrients into muscle cells to the point of creating a high-performance effect.
The term for this effect is called the "reactive pump." The whole point of the reactive pump is making muscle hyper-responsive to nutrient uptake and hyper-responsive to growth signaling.
By uniquely preloading and pumping key nutrients into muscle, Plazma™ enables you to perform at and beyond your limits and recover so fast you'll be itching to get back in the gym. Not only that, the increased gains you're going to experience from Plazma™ will be nothing less than shocking.
How to Use Plazma™
|00:15 Pre-Workout||Plazma™ – 1 serving|
|Workout||Plazma™ – 1-2 servings|
|00:15 Pre Event||Plazma™ – 1 serving|
|During Event||Plazma™ – 1 serving every 30 minutes|
- Pour 1,000 ml of cold water into a 2,000 ml Nalgene® bottle.
- Pour 195 g of the Plazma™ formula into the cold water, secure the cap on the bottle, and shake vigorously for about 20 seconds, or until thoroughly mixed. If done correctly, the shaking will foam the contents of the bottle.
- While the mixture is still foamed, pour in 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of Biotest®t Intensified Liquid Flavoring and gently swirl the contents until thoroughly mixed. Allow the flavored mixture to clear the foam and form a semi-transparent liquid. The foam should clear within 60 seconds.
- Add enough cold water to increase the fill volume to 1,800 ml and gently swirl the contents to mix thoroughly.
Bodybuilder John Meadow's Fascinating Story
On Saturday, July 21st, John Meadows took 2nd out of a field of 27 heavyweights at the NPC Masters Nationals. John was by far the most massive and shredded. He simply lost to someone who was taller and had a "prettier" physique. Far more interesting than John's contest ranking is why he decided to compete and the circumstances that led up to that decision. Here's a glimpse of what happened:
• While training to on pack on new muscle, John noticed he was also shredding up. And in a 12-week period, without even trying, he "accidentally" got into contest shape.
• In contrast to usual pre-contest dieting, he increased his daily food intake by 500 calories, and pushed his carbs up to as much as 570 grams per day.
• John credits the shredding while gaining phenomenon to the specialized nutrients and carbs he added into his diet, which came from Plazma.™
• Equally as impressive to John was his newfound ability of being "invincible in the gym," training brutally hard with Dave Tate and gaining muscle mass at a record rate.
• Lastly, he did absolutely no cardio.
John ended up standing on stage at 221 pounds — far heavier, far more muscular, and far more shredded than he's ever been in competition. The story of how he accomplished all of this is largely due to an intramuscular effect called the Reactive Pump.
Biotest CEO Tim Patterson is always doing experiments. For instance, last year Tim tried out something out on what he considered to be a nearly impossible challenge. The subject of his experiment was an endurance athlete who participates in triathlons, only he doesn't really train for them to the degree he should. He sometimes enters competitions and then comes pretty close to kidney failure, peeing blood, passing out, and needing medical intervention.
As an exploratory scientific endeavor, Tim develops a formula to essentially pull nutrients into working muscle and To keep this triathlete from destroying muscle and from dehydrating, Tim set out to develop a nutrient complex that would revive and fuel someone who's basically dying from extreme exhaustion.
A few weeks later, the triathlete is scheduled to do a casual race in Europe with two professional bike riders and their route would take them over 3 mountain passes. The three cyclists have done it before, and normally our triathlete spends the race looking at the skinny asses of the pros in front of him until he completely gasses out, which usually occurs before the second mountain pass.
But this time, Tim gives him the formula before the race and he ends up blowing past one of the pros on the second pass, and goes on to easily complete the race. Obviously, this triathlete is sold on the formula and protocol, and now he won't compete without it. "He's invincible at this point, really," says Patterson, with just a hint of satisfaction in his voice.
Intrigued by this effect, Tim starts thinking about how else he might use the formula. He thinks to himself, "This thing is crazy because, during the most extreme physical demands, we have muscle pulling in nutrients as if it were a vacuum, and the effect completely revolutionizes sports performance. Let's see if we can get a similar effect with muscle growth and recovery. Whatever this is doing for endurance athletes, it should do substantially more for bodybuilders and power athletes."
And that's when he thinks of John Meadows.
"I Feel Like I'm in the Twilight Zone."
Here's John Meadow's Plazma experience in his own words:
"After taking Plazma I didn’t get sore anymore. I tried, I mean I really tried. It was so unusual that I'm thinking maybe I just didn't train hard enough. I thought, 'We'll fix that!'
"So Dave Tate and I went through a three-hour leg workout where every single exercise was probably 7 or 8 sets. We worked hard and then we just did an insane drop set at the end of each exercise. It's one thing to go to failure, but we'd go way beyond that. We'd take it to failure and then do partials. Then we'd do even smaller partials. And then we'd do something where we can maybe move the weight an inch.
"Testing Plazma, we did things that I'd never advise anybody to do, and honestly, I wasn't sore and I had this mind-blowing pump. After the workout, I went home and got out of my truck real gingerly like, just waiting for the cramps to hit hard and for me to fall over, but nothing. No pain. So I mowed the lawn and then went out to a movie. I told Tim the best way I can describe it is that when I'm on Plazma,™ I feel like I'm in the Twilight Zone."
"John! What's Happened to Your Body?"
Obviously, John's training is going gangbusters. He's added frequency, he's not cramping any more, the weights are flying up, and he's looking better by the day, but he doesn't know just how much better until one day his wife says, "What's happening to your body? Have you checked your body fat lately?"
Puzzled, John pulls out the skin fold calipers and checks his subscap site, which is traditionally for him his fattest area. He likes to make sure it reads no more than 14 or 15 millimeters because that lets him know he's cruising at about 8 or 9 percent body fat. About three weeks earlier it was 14, but this time it reads 10, which is equivalent to about 5 or 6 percent body fat, and his weight hadn't changed a lick.
"It was so amazing and I thought, 'You know what?' This is pretty easy. I hadn't wanted to compete this year because of the stress of dealing with everything involved with a contest. Competing can be a miserable experience and it's tough on everybody. You're completely fatigued and sometimes you're just miserable.
But now I'm thinking, 'Wow, I could compete and I can still have a functional family. I can still live life. I can still be happy. We can still go out to eat. This is really cool. All I have to do is follow the Plazma™ protocol and go to the gym and train my ass off, which I love to do. That's it. And to think, I'd pretty much gotten in shape by accident."
Dave Tate Squats 780 Pounds for 10 Reps
Dave Tate started using John's Plazma™ and following the dosing protocol. Dave was somewhere around the upper 240's with about 9 percent body fat when he began. A few weeks after training on Plazma, he's in the upper 250's without adding body fat.
"And in just two weeks," exclaims John, "Dave has done things he hasn't been able to do since he was in the 308 power lifting class. Last week he did 780-pound reverse band squats for 10 reps on a safety squat bar. This is a guy with herniated disks, with a torn... everything you could possibly imagine. And honestly, I think if he could get his arms behind a regular squat bar, he could probably squat 1,000 now.
"We were both like, 'This isn't possible for 40 year olds to be changing this quickly. This just doesn't sound possible.' We're both pretty amazed."
230 Pounds at 4% Body Fat
As the contest draws nearer, John is just cruising. Things are totally different from his previous contest-prep experiences. He's not spending half the day sleeping. He's not doing any cardio and he's eating carbs, lots of carbs, sometimes as many as 570 grams in a day. He's still eating hamburgers and fries on the weekend; still having French toast during the week.
And perhaps most amazingly of all, when the week of the show arrives, his strength was up, not down, and he hasn't been sore a single day since he started using Plazma.™ The last time John competed, he'd stood on stage at 210 pounds, but when he hit the stage a couple of weeks ago at the NPC Masters Nationals, he weighed in at 221.
"I literally put on 11 pounds of stage weight at 40 years old, and I hadn't been sore in 3 months. So essentially I gained more stage weight in, what I would say conservatively, the last 3 months than I had in the previous 4 or 5 years. As kind of a weird side note, I don't have a colon now [it was removed surgically a few years back after a serious illness], so I'd probably weigh closer to 225 if I did.
"So I enter the contest in the best shape I've ever been, I'm the biggest and hardest guy in the show, and it's the highest I've ever placed in a National show... I mean, it's just remarkable. I know it's really weird for me to say all this, but these are the facts.
"I think I only lost the contest by one or two points. So I'm thinking, next year, at only 5'6", I could be the guy on stage at 230 pounds and sub 4-percent body fat. I'm now thinking in terms of no limits."
"You get leaner almost daily while adding weight and strength!"
When Biotest CEO Tim Patterson first asked me about trying Plazma™ I was extremely skeptical. But I took him at his word and gave it a shot, and was completely blown away by the results. In fact, I contribute much of my recent success to Biotest's Plazma.™ The stuff just flat out works. You get leaner almost daily while adding weight and strength. It's nuts.
If you don't believe me, look at John Meadows. He's added 10 pounds of stage weight in one season and the only thing he changed in his prep was adding Plazma™ during his workouts. For competitive bodybuilder at his level of development, gaining 10 pounds like that is ridiculous.
I feel like Plazma™ buys me considerable leeway. I can basically screw up my diet everywhere else and as long as I take in this protocol, I'll meet my body's needs and grow. That's a huge plus for me.
I have enough to think about, so the last thing I want is to be stressed about what I eat. It's nice knowing that as long as I have Plazma™ during my workout I can basically cruise through the rest of the day. So if anything, this workout protocol is a huge stress reliever.
"It feels like I'm unbreakable."
When first testing Plazma,™ I did things that I'd never advise anybody to do — like crazy intensity and insane volume — and honestly, I didn't cramp up, I didn't get sore, and I got these mind-blowing pumps.
Doing machine presses, for example, I'd usually come 3 or 4 plates short of doing the entire stack and do maybe 8 or 10 reps — but that day I ended up using the whole stack, doing something like 16 or 17 reps. Thinking maybe I got lucky, I went to barbell incline press and the same thing happened — I knocked out a really high number of reps on that, as well. My training partners were dumbfounded. They're like, 'Wow, what happened to you?' and these are guys that I've trained with for years.
It went like that the whole workout. It was pretty freaky.
The next three weeks, I kept training like this and eating a lot to see how much muscle I could gain. Getting leaner wasn't even on my mind. So, when my body fat dropped from about 9 percent to 5 or 6 percent, it was pretty much by accident.
I thought, 'This is really cool. All I have to do to is follow the Plazma™ protocol and go to the gym and train my ass off, which is what I love to do. That's it.
The best way I can describe being on Plazma™ — it feels like I'm unbreakable.
