Strong, Fit & Toned
The Strong, Fit & Toned Stack is four supplements that will help you build muscle and gain strength faster, improve your workout performance, and accelerate recovery.
Many women are turned off by “muscle building” products because they’re afraid of getting “bulky.”
If you’re like most women, you want to look fit and toned but not particularly muscular, and I have good news for you:
Even if you wanted to, you’d have a hell of a time actually getting “bulky.”
It’s hard enough for men to do and they have 10 to 15 times the testosterone as you, which is the primary hormone responsible for muscle growth.
Ironically, if your goal is to have an athletic, tight body with curves and lines in the right places, you’re going to have to build quite a bit of muscle. For most women, the number is 10 to 15 pounds.
There’s a catch, though…
The key to building muscle without getting bulky is staying lean. That is, the more muscle you gain, the leaner you have to be to keep from looking “too big.”
The reality is if you took a fit woman with a downright enviable body--lean, toned legs, perfect butt, tight arms, and flat stomach--and increased her body fat percentage by just 5%, you might be surprised at how “blocky” it makes her look.
The reason for this is most of the fat you gain and lose lays on top of the muscles, and the more you have of both fat and muscle, the larger and “bulkier” your body looks. Your legs lose their lines and turn into logs. Your butt becomes too big for your britches. Your arms fill out like sausages.
Reduce your body fat levels, however, and a whole new physique emerges. You look lean and toned everywhere with sleek curves and muscle definition.
In terms of specific numbers, we’ve found that the look most women are after is about 18% body fat.
So, if you’re ready to build the body of your dreams, the Strong, Fit, & Toned Stack can help you gain the muscle you need to get there (and the Slim & Sexy Stack can help you lose the fat to show off what you’ve built!).
Whey protein is extremely popular for several reasons: you get a lot of protein per serving, it tastes good, and its amino acid profile is particularly suited to improving muscle definition.
And if you’re looking for a natural whey protein, WHEY+ is hard to beat.
- It’s 100% whey protein isolate.
- It comes from small dairy farms in Ireland, which are known for their exceptionally high-quality milk.
- It comes from hormone- and antibiotic-free cows.
- It contains no artificial food dyes or other junk additives or fillers.
- It contains no soy protein, gluten, GMOs, MSG, or hormones.
- It’s 100% naturally sweetened and flavored.

Once you’ve trained your muscles, it’s time to recover and grow, and that’s exactly what RECHARGE was created for.
It contains three molecules scientifically proven to help you build muscle tone faster, get stronger, recover faster from workouts, and reduce muscle soreness: creatine monohydrate, L-carnitine L-tartrate, and corosolic acid.
With RECHARGE, you’ll be able to get stronger, train more frequently, build more muscle definition, and recover better.

How To Use This Stack
Each of our supplements come with directions, of course, but there are several additional things you should know to get the most out of this stack.
Here they are…
Whey protein powder can be used anytime to help you meet your protein needs, but the ideal ratio between whole food and supplemental protein is still an area of scientific ambiguity.
Anecdotal evidence, however, suggests that getting at least 50% of your daily protein from whole food sources is a good rule of thumb for the purposes of healthy dieting.
Whey protein powder is particularly effective when eaten after training due to its rapid digestion and abundance of leucine.
Simply put, the faster protein is digested and the more leucine it has, the more muscle growth it stimulates.
This is why research has proven that whey is a highly effective form of post-workout protein.
And this is why we recommend that you have one to two scoops of WHEY+ after your workouts, which will provide your body with a large enough dose of protein to maximize muscle protein synthesis.
Depending on when you train, you may benefit from having whey protein before you work out as well.
Studies have shown that eating protein before training both does and doesn’t enhance post-workout muscle growth, which leaves many people scratching their heads.
Well, an important factor to consider is when study subjects had last eaten protein before eating their pre-workout meals.
You see, when you eat a meal, it takes your body anywhere from 2 to 6 hours to fully absorb the nutrients it provides.
Thus, if you had eaten a meal with a considerable amount of protein just an hour or two before working out, your plasma amino acid levels (the levels in your blood) would be quite high come workout time.
When this is the case, it’s unlikely that eating more protein before working out would help you build more muscle.
On the other hand, if it had been several hours since you last ate protein, and especially if you hadn’t eaten much in that last meal, your plasma amino acid levels would likely be low come workout time.
In this case, research shows that eating protein (and thus elevating plasma amino acid levels) before training can help you build muscle faster.
This is why we recommend that you have one scoop of WHEY+ before your workouts if you haven’t eaten at least 20 grams of protein within the previous two hours.
RECHARGE is best taken after workouts with your post-workout meals, which would ideally contain both protein and carbohydrates.
The reason for this is research shows that creatine is most effective when taken after workouts and with carbs.
If, for whatever reason, that doesn’t work for you, then the second-best time to take Recharge would be with any meal containing carbs.
Take RECHARGE every day, whether you train or not, to keep intramuscular creatine levels elevated.
It’s worth noting that you don’t have to cycle RECHARGE.
When you supplement with creatine, it’s true that your body reduces its natural production.
That may sound ominous but don’t mistake creatine for steroids, which can shut down (and even permanently damage) your body’s natural production of certain hormones.
Ironically, producing creatine is a demanding process and reducing this burden may even be healthful. And if you cease supplementation with creatine, your body resumes its normal production.
PULSE is a pre-workout supplement, which clearly indicates when it should be taken, but here’s what else you should know:
- Although most people use a full serving before all workouts, some like to use ½ of a serving before lighter workouts and a full serving before harder ones.
- If you’re eating a pre-workout meal (training in a “fed” state), take PULSE 20 to 30 minutes before working out to give it time to “kick in.”
- If you’re working out in a fasted state, take PULSE 15 minutes before training.
- You don’t have to cycle PULSE but if you want to maintain optimum caffeine sensitivity, limit your intake to no more than 400 milligrams per day and dramatically reduce your intake to as low as possible (nil, ideally) 1 to 2 days per week.
- The more days you take PULSE per week, the more likely you are to reap the muscle-related benefits of beta-alanine (due to the accumulation of carnosine in your muscles).
- Due mainly to the cognitive and mood-enhancing benefits of caffeine and theanine, many people like to use PULSE in place of other caffeinated beverages as a “pick me up.”
Your body can only absorb so much of a given nutrient in one sitting. Excess amounts are disposed of in various ways.
As the goal of taking a multivitamin isn’t merely ingesting nutrients but absorbing and using them, we recommend that you take ½ of a serving of TRIUMPH early in the day and another ½ of a serving 3 to 6 hours later.
Most people take TRIUMPH with breakfast and dinner, and doing this ensures they’re not providing their bodies with more of any individual nutrient than they can effectively process.
You can further improve absorption by taking TRIUMPH with or after meals containing dietary fat.
Some of the molecules in TRIUMPH are fat soluble, meaning they are absorbed into fat, which is then transported throughout the body and utilized.
Taking TRIUMPH with meals also prevents the nauseous feeling you can get when you take a potent multivitamin on an empty stomach.
Here’s how most customers structure their supplement schedules when using this stack:
- ½ serving of TRIUMPH
- ½ serving of TRIUMPH
(Regardless of Time in Day)
- 1 scoop of WHEY+
- 1 serving of PULSE
With Post-Workout Meal
(Regardless of Time in Day)
- 1 to 2 scoops of WHEY+
