Look, If You’re Gonna Work Out Anyhow, You Might As Well Make Growing ‘BIG MUSCLE’ Easy. (and the quicker, the better!)

 

An easy way to simplify your diet AND see massive leaps in your training results!

Steal a look in the cabinets of bodybuilders and fitness competitors who are serious about their results, and you’ll likely discover they have something in common…UMP is on their shelf. Why? Because UMP isn’t some ordinary, everyday, run-of-the-mill protein powder, it is quite simply the most advanced source of anabolic-boosting, fat-blasting protein ever designed. It creates a muscle-building environment unequaled by any other powder.

A Protein Powder That Will Forever Change Your Bodybuilding Results

When Beverly decided to create the Ultimate Muscle Protein (UMP ) formula, our goal was to create a protein supplement to supercharge the complete muscle-building anabolic and anti-catabolic processes… that is exactly what UMP does. It uses super high amino, proprietary proteins, comprised of only the most pristine select Milk Protein Isolates (highest quality casein and whey protein isolates). By binding these super-aminos synergistically with triple-A whey protein concentrates, UMP gives you the same powerful anabolic nutrients of mother’s milk.

 

It May Sound Amazing, but It Really is True… You Not Only Build Major Muscle, You Also Lose Fat – Simultaneously!

UMP is more than a miracle muscle builder; it’s an astounding, metabolic stimulating blend of top-notch nutrients. It truly lets you custom design your nutritional program so precisely, it literally guarantees you’ll achieve your bodybuilding or fitness goals. You’re not locked into a “one size fits all” serving size; you use the convenient scoop to measure out the exact portion size for your specific dietary need!

Straight Facts on Why You’d Want to Use UMP

  • Easy to use! Incredibly smooth and delicious to the taste!
  • Versatile enough to make delicious pudding, pancakes, and even crepes.
    (See recipes BELOW).
  • Delivers an optimal macronutrient blend;
    if you must miss a meal, it won’t be a big deal.
  • Maximizes your results from intense exercise
  • Increases protein synthesis in post-trained Type II muscle fibers.
  • Increases your lean body mass and slashes that annoying fat.

Try and Enjoy These Delicious and Easy UMP Recipes

If we have learned anything over the years, it is that very few people like to follow a diet that is EXACTLY the same every day. Those of us who have made fitness and bodybuilding a way of life have found some clever ways to stay on our diets while satisfying our cravings. Below are some UMP recipes you can use on a regular basis. Enjoy!

UMP CREPES

Mix in blender 3 scoops UMP, 1-2 whole eggs, 5 egg whites, (1 tbsp cream optional), 8oz water (vary water to the consistency you want).

Spray oil in a non-stick skillet and heat to medium heat. Pour the mixture into your skillet and cook as you would thin pancakes - one crepe at a time. Serve as is or with no-sugar-added jelly or preserves or no-sugar-added syrup. Makes 4 - 6 crepes. (Approximately 85 grams protein, 15 grams carbohydrate, 15 grams fat)

Note: You can refrigerate the unused crepes and eat them as a snack anytime.

NUT BUTTER - MOCHA PUDDING

2 scoops of your favorite UMP, 1 tsp natural peanut butter or almond butter, approximately ¼ cup of fresh hot coffee, 2 tbsp Fat-Free Cool Whip (optional)

Mix the first three ingredients in a small bowl or coffee cup. You will need to adjust the amount of coffee depending on your desired consistency. Top with Fat-Free Cool Whip as you eat. WOW!

CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER SUPREME SHAKE

Mix 2 - 3 scoops of UMP Chocolate in a blender, 4 ice cubes, 1 tbsp heavy whipping cream, 1 tbsp peanut butter, and 12-16oz water… Mix and Enjoy!

UMP CAKE
2 scoops UMP (try the Angel Food Cake), a little bit of water or coffee (try 1/8 cup to start), 2 tbsp Fat-Free Cool Whip.

Mix UMP with water or coffee in a small microwaveable bowl until the powder is moist and makes a very thick batter. Microwave for about 40 seconds until the ‘cake’ rises. Top with Cool Whip as you eat.

Be sure not to overcook it, though, or you’ll end up with a really hard cake.

OLD SCHOOL ANABOLIC MEAL REPLACEMENT

Mix UMP with heavy whipping cream and water. This is the same type of anabolic meal replacement used by Rheo Blair and Vince Gironda for drug-free gains during the “Golden Days of Bodybuilding.”

Bodyweight

90 - 115

115 - 165

165 – 225

Amount UMP

1 scoop in 6 - 8 oz water and 2 tbsp heavy whipping cream

2 scoops in 12-oz water and 4 tbsp whipping cream

3 scoops in 18-oz water and 6 tbsp whipping cream

For added weight gain, substitute milk in place of water in the above recipes. If you are worried about too much saturated fat, substitute 1 tbsp sunflower, safflower, or olive oil for each 2 tbsp of heavy whipping cream in the recipes above.

BELGIUM BODY MUSCLE WAFFLES

Talk about a craving killer! If you replaced these waffles with those at a nice brunch restaurant people would never know.

2 scoops UMP (any flavor), 5 egg whites or 3 servings (4 oz) liquid egg whites, and enough water to make batter consistency.
Mix all ingredients to a batter consistency. Place in a waffle maker for 2-4 minutes. Top with low-cal syrup and butter or a butter substitute to make it extra yummy.

If you don't have a waffle maker, make pancakes. They are fantastic too! Just add a bit more water. If you want these waffles to raise more, add ½ cup of low-fat Bisquik, depending on your goals.

 

UMP Tastes Great and Is Extremely Versatile

I needed a top-of-the-line multi-species protein supplement to augment my bodybuilding nutrition. After reading and hearing from others about Beverly’s sterling reputation for making superior proteins, I had
to give UMP a try. It tastes great and is highly versatile. Beverly supplements don’t come cheap, but I have learned that you do get what you pay for. You guys are great. I love UMP, Ultra 40, Mass Aminos, Muscle Provider, and Muscle Synergy. Keep up the excellent work. -Tim R

Beverly International Products Give You Consistent Conditioning

Your products and service are excellent. UMP is the best-tasting protein powder I have ever used. I saw consistent conditioning in the Beverly athletes who came in for competition, and that was what I wanted. Initially, I felt the price was more than I wanted to pay; but after trying the products, they are well worth the money: the best products and excellent customer service. The Beverly staff makes you feel like one of the family. -Tommy H

I Got A Smaller Waistline And Tighter Sleeves!
After reading so many good things about Beverly’s UMP product, I decided to try it. I opened the container and was surprised by the aroma that UMP had. It smelled great and didn’t have that pungent smell that almost knocks you over, like so many other proteins on the market.

Next was the taste test…WOW!!!! This was the best-tasting stuff I have ever had. Well, 2 containers later, goals that were never attainable in my dreams before have become a reality. I am up to 185 lbs now; I never thought I could even get to 180. I am there now, and I want even more. Between the product’s taste, the way it mixes, and cost-benefit value, plus the sleeves of my shirts getting tighter and my waistline getting smaller, I’m a Beverly team member for life. -Patrick C

The Inches Just Seem To Melt Off!
Beverly has the best protein powder around. You can make it into a shake or pudding, add it to oatmeal, or even cook with it. When I run out, I panic. There is just no comparison! Great service, great products, and good friends, that = success. When I travel, I take my UMP along and have a meal! I love the taste and the convenience! And the inches seem to melt off! -Sandra W

More Progress in the Last Year than in the Past 6 Years before!
UMP turned out to be much more than I had hoped for because I didn’t expect it to taste so delicious. The nutrient blend in this product seems to be perfect for building muscle and losing fat at the same time. Beverly’s biggest appeal is no marketing hype... just products that work. I have made more progress using Beverly in the last year than in the past 6 years! -Dave H

A Nutrition Store Owner Recommended UMP Over All the Others
The owner of the Nutri-Sport, where I was shopping for protein and meal replacements, said I should try UMP. They sell every protein under the sun, but the fact that they told me to use UMP to achieve my goals meant a lot to me. I have been training for over 20 years, and this product works. -Greg S

 

Nothing Else Compares
Every time I run out and use another brand, I seem to add body fat. UMP is the best, and I recommend it to everyone. It’s by far the best. -Jerry I

The Price Discouraged Me… But Only At First
The quality, superior taste, and versatility of UMP keep me ordering it (plus the predictability of its results, as seen from other bodybuilding competitors who use
it). Price discouraged me from buying at first, but later on, I realized it was worth the price. Beverly provides excellent products and services; I am happy that Beverly is in existence! -James K

Guaranteed To Be the Best
I just went through my first 2-lb jug of UMP. I have noticed some dramatic changes in my body as far as size and strength go. I love that Beverly stands by their word and guarantee their products…Simply the best service. I am quite satisfied with everything. -Brandon B

When The Best Recommend It, You’ve Got To Try It

Dr. Serrano (the best in his field) was talking about Beverly International at a seminar that I attended. The taste is wonderful! Beverly products seem higher priced, but the quality of the product makes it worth the extra cost. -Amy D

My passion for strength training starts in the weight room at Owen Valley High School in Spencer, IN. As a multi-sport athlete, I knew I needed to gain size and strength to be competitive. In the 8th grade, I began reading as much as I could about strength training. When I started lifting with the high school football team in January of 2000, the coaches and older guys on the football team were serious about strength training. When I saw the record board for lifting, I knew I wanted to be on there one day. I dove hard into my training and, after 4 years, had gained 45 pounds of muscle. I did make it on that board for my high school's current and all-time lifting records.

I met my wife Julie in 2008 when she was an Indiana University strength and conditioning coach. At the time, I was still soaking up everything I could about strength training and dividing my spare time between MMA and lifting. Julie launched Xcel Performance Fitness in 2009, and a couple of years later, I opened Wolverine Fight System martial arts training.

After competing in 85 BJJ and grappling matches, I decided to get back into serious strength training. In December of 2021, I began training with Drew and Stacey Heckman. Drew has totaled 2000 pounds, raw, in the 275-lb class. I was embarrassed my first few sessions lifting at “Sweet Owen Barbell” (that’s what we call the garage gym). Over the winter, everyone started talking about competing. By now, I also had the lifting bug and said I was in. My first two competitions were in the raw division of the American Powerlifting Federation (APF). I set state records for my age group and the open. I also set APF national age group records in the squat and deadlift in the 148-lb class.

My next challenge was to go up to the 165-lb class and compete in the division, which allowed powerlifting gear (squat suit, knee wraps, bench shirt, and deadlift suit). It took me weeks to get used to the equipment and use it to its full advantage. I remember the first time I got into a squat suit with straps down. I was amazed at how the weight moved. I couldn’t get the suit fully on (straps up) until my 3rd session with it. But when I did, I was able to squat 5 lbs over my raw 1RM easily for 3 solid reps. Drew, Stacy, and I used a “linear progression” powerlifting to prepare for our next meet.

The meet was on November 13, 2022, in Dubuque, Iowa, during the United Power Lifting Power Weekend. I competed in the drug-tested division for my age group (33-39). Stacey competed in the raw division and Doug who was coming off an injury in the deadlift only. We all placed first in our divisions. Stacey set new PRs; Dave hit a new PR with a 529-pound deadlift.
I set PRs with a 385-lb squat and 440-lb deadlift, and a 1080-lb total.

Here are a few tips for beginning powerlifting.

  1. Get the form right before going heavy - have “pretty lifts.”
  2. Bulletproof your body before going heavy. If not, you will find weak links and possibly injure yourself.
  3. Recovery is key. Use gel iced knee and elbow sleeves post-workout, and work on tight spots when resting or watching TV via foam roller or massager. Hot tub or Epsom salt baths, ice baths, sleep 7-9 hrs a night and take a 20–30-minute nap if possible. Beverly Supplements help me recover and give me the energy to get through the day.
  4. Gym lifts do matter but are different from competition numbers. You can’t control the variables in a meet like you can in the gym.
  5. Don’t wait until you’re breaking records to compete. That’s the reason I waited so long. I received terrible advice years ago and was told I needed to lift “x” pounds to compete, which is untrue. If your technique is solid, get in there, get the experience, and have fun.

Sample linear progression powerlifting schedule

Weeks 1-4

Monday – Squat

Squat 2x4 (after warm-ups)
Leg Press 3x5-7
Leg Curl 3x8-10

Friday – Deadlift

Deadlift 2x4
Bent-over Row 3x5-7
Barbell Curl 3x8-10

Wednesday – Bench Press

Bench Press 2x4
Shoulder Press 3x5-7
Skull Crushers 3x8-10

During weeks 1-4 you’ll do 2 sets of 4 reps on each of the main lifts (Squat, Bench, and Deadlift). Start week 1 with 67.5% of your current max. Add 2.5% each week for week 2 & 3, then deload on week 4 to 55%. If your starting max is 200-lbs, your workout weights would be 135 for week 1, 140 for week 2, and 145 for week 3. Week 4 deload to 110. Jeremy’s competition dead lift was 420, so on his next linear progression cycle he would start with 285.

The second and third exercises listed for each day are “assistance lifts.” For the exercises listed 2nd (leg press, shoulder press, and bent-over row) do 2 sets for 5 reps, then on the 3rd set go for 7 reps in perfect form. If you make it, add 10lbs the following week on the leg press and 5lbs on the shoulder press and bent-over row. Use the same progression scheme for the leg curl, skull crushers and barbell curl –
2 sets of 8, then go for 10 on the 3rd set.

Weeks 5-8

Reduce the reps on the main lifts to 2x3 for weeks 5-8. Start at 75% of your max on week 5 and advance 2.5% each week for weeks 6 & 7, then deload again to 57.5% on week 8. Use the same progression as before on the assistance lifts.

Weeks 9-12

Main lifts are 2x2 starting at 82.5%, progressing 2.5% per week up to 87.5% on week 11. Deload week 12 to 60%. Continue to add weight to the assistance lifts whenever you are able to get 7 (or 10) reps on the 3rd set in perfect form.

Weeks 13-16

The main lifts for week 13 will be 2x1 at 90%. Week 14, 2x1 at 92.5%, and week 15, 2x1 at 95%. During this phase do not try to add weight to the assistance exercises, but do 3x5 or 3x8 in perfect form with the same weight throughout. You will work up to a new max on each of the main lifts during week 16.

Sample Nutrition Plan for Building Muscle and Recovery

Weekdays most meals are prepared in advance and stored in a cooler

Pre-Workout (5:30 am) peanut butter and honey sandwich on whole grain toast, 1 cup strawberries, 4oz lean ham or turkey

Snack (2 pm) 2 scoops PBP in oat milk, fruit cup

Snack (4 pm) Woodsman Coffee, peanut butter and strawberry jam on wheat bread

Dinner (7 pm) baked cod or salmon fillet, 1 cup stir fry veggies and an orange; on the weekends, I have steak, baked potato, green beans and salad

Supplements

Super Pak with post-workout meal for energy, recovery, and muscle function

Ultra 40 with meals for strength and energy

Muscle Synergy and Up-Lift, pre-workout for focus, intensity, and strength and size gains

Creatine Select, Muscle Mass & Glutamine Select post-workout for recovery, immune support, and muscle building

I use the UMP to incorporate protein into my contest prep. I always use UMP to get that protein in the off-season because it tastes delicious!

What would you recommend to someone who has never used Beverly supplements? I have tried endless companies for protein powder, and hands down, UMP in any flavor is the best-tasting ones I’ve ever had!

7 Keto MuscLean and Lean Out are fantastic for fat loss because it never gives you that jittery feeling!

Words to live by: It’s NEVER too late to start!

 

I loved being in the gym in my twenties but wasn’t serious and just did a few things here and there. That all changed when I attended my first Natural Bodybuilding competition in 2008. I saw these amazing, beautiful, strong women on stage and thought, I want to be up there! I fell in love with the sport.

That’s when I became serious at the gym and began focusing on proper nutrition and supplements to build muscle correctly. I discovered Beverly International through a friend of mine. When I incorporated Beverly products into my diet, I noticed a huge difference in my gains and recovery. Not only that, but I loved their delicious protein shakes and their company values.

I took a 10-year break from competing to start a family and concentrate on my job, but there was always this fire inside that wanted to win a pro card. I worked out like I would compete again during this break, but with no definite competition plans. Then I went to support my best friend as she competed in the 2021 OCB Battle of the Great Lakes. The contest atmosphere – the smell of spray tan, the competitors, and the trophies - combined to make me decide I needed to give my quest for a pro card another shot. When I got home from the contest, I worked out even harder, dieted harder, and made sure to have all my Beverly supplements and food with me at all times. I never missed a scheduled meal, even if we were camping!

Then came the show day, August 2022. I can proudly say that I achieved my goal at 41! I not only won my pro card, but I won two! One in the Bikini Masters 35 and over and one in the Bikini Open. The competitors were outstanding, and a few of us ladies started a group chat and became friends. We helped each other with confidence, empathy, and overall being there for one another because this can be a lonely sport. Not only did I achieve this goal, but I was able to show my daughter that women can be intelligent, beautiful, and strong. I also wanted to show her that if you have a dream, never quit. No matter how many times you may fail, get up and try again!

Diet

My meal plan for competition prep is the following:

Meal One
6:00 am: 1 whole egg, 3 egg whites, and ½ cup oatmeal with 1 tsp cinnamon and 1 oz chopped walnuts.

Meal Two
11:00 am: 4oz lean meat (usually 4oz chicken with a tablespoon G Hughes sauce, but depending on my mood, I might use BBQ, Teriyaki, or Spicy), along with 4oz sweet potato (or a ½ cup quinoa or brown rice)
and 4oz asparagus.

 

 
Sometimes I used 94% lean ground turkey meat and made it into meatballs adding chopped garlic, salt and pepper, and 1 whole egg. I would air fry these at 350° for 20 minutes. Then I make my own red sauce to go on top!

Meal Three
2:30 pm: Protein shake - 1 scoop Beverly UMP (Strawberry, Chocolate, or Vanilla flavor) 8oz water, 1 cup strawberries, and 1 tbsp almond butter.

Meal Four
6:00 pm: 4oz lean meat (usually shrimp with 1 tbsp sugar-free ketchup and 1 tbsp horseradish sauce), salad with 1 cup broccoli and 1 cup cauliflower with my dressing recipe (apple cider vinegar, avocado oil, garlic powder, salt and pepper) and 2oz sunflower seeds.

Meal Five
8:00 pm: Protein pudding - 1 scoop UMP to make a pudding mix with water, 1oz blueberries, and 1oz chopped walnuts. This was my favorite meal, and I craved it every single day!

I would eat a few caramel mini rice cakes if I were still hungry at night.

 

Supplement Schedule

7-Keto MuscLean and Lean Out is hands down the best natural stack for shedding stubborn fat, and it never gives me any jitters. I took three 7-Keto and two Lean Out twice daily, in the morning before breakfast and the afternoon before lunch.

I sipped Beverly’s Glutamine Select throughout my workout. This definitely helped my recovery, and it tastes great! I also take Creatine Select before my workouts to help me gain lean muscle.

Cardio Schedule

My cardio routine during contest prep is 20-30 minutes after my workouts 5 days a week. I used the elliptical because it was easier on my knees, and I could adjust the level and intensity depending on workout priorities. Off-season, I do cardio every other day for about 15-20 minutes on the elliptical or walking.

Training Schedule

I do 4 sets of 12-15 reps on each exercise. On the last exercise for each bodypart, I either go to failure or perform a drop set starting with a heavy weight for 4 reps, then dropping the weight and doing 6 reps, then 8 reps, and finally ten reps.

Monday Quads, Glutes, and Abs
Tuesday Back and Biceps
Wednesday Delts and Abs
Thursday Chest and Triceps
Friday Hamstrings, Glutes, and Abs
Saturday Rest
Sunday Delts and Abs

Presentation Tips

I cannot emphasize this enough but PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE! I have seen so many beautiful ladies have phenomenal physiques, but when they go on stage, it’s clear that they haven’t practiced enough or have never walked in those shoes before!

I hired a coach and went to posing clinics to help perfect my presentation on stage. This helped me tremendously and allowed me to be very comfortable on stage!

I practiced all the time and made videos to evaluate my physique and posing. There is always room for improvement.

 
 

In Closing

I love this sport because no matter what age you are, you can do it with hard work, discipline, a sound support system, and the right supplements, aka Beverly International!

I have learned I can push my body to its limit, and I was able to achieve my dream! If you have a dream, do it!

Words to live by: "You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream" C.S. Lewis

 

I have always been an active person and have enjoyed playing all kinds of sports. When my children were younger, I ensured they were involved in activities and sports, making me-time less important. My enjoyment came through their accomplishments, and "to an extent," I became sedentary. It was not until my daughter's senior year in high school, when I went to her powerlifting tournament, that my interest was piqued to begin weightlifting and get healthier, so I joined the gym.

Some say it was how I prepared myself for my "empty nest." I started with three days of cardio and played around with the weights. I realized that was not enough to lose weight and get healthy, so I slowly started adding a few more days. One Sunday, a group of gym goers came in for competition posing practice. I watched with curiosity and knew if I had to put on a suit, I would work hard to lose the weight. At the time, I had no intention of competing. I hired a trainer and saw how my body was transforming into a more muscular me, a healthier me. Within seven months, I competed in my first bodybuilding show in both the masters and open categories. I mentally and physically felt invigorated with two first-place trophies, and my journey into bodybuilding was now solidified at the age of 49.

In my second year of competition, I was approached by a judge who discussed my strengths and weaknesses. He asked about my supplements and suggested I try Beverly International products. I felt well informed by the explanations of the product he gave me and did some additional research. I started with a few items and could see and feel the results. I now use Beverly supplements exclusively. (The UMP protein mixes so easily in bottled water. It isn't gritty, has no aftertaste, and the flavor is spot on.)

Now I have been competing for over twelve years. I started in bodybuilding, transitioned into physique, and am currently competing in figure. I continually brought a better me to the stage in those years with each subsequent show. I have been with my trainer, IFBB Pro John Simmons, for most of my journey. He keeps me on course and helps me reach every goal I set. I also became NESTA certified to educate myself and make a difference in others' lives.

I was fortunate enough to teach and train Silver Sneaker classes. The benefits of exercising were proven in many ways when working with my clients: from lowering blood pressure to being off certain medications to just feeling better, which has inspired me!

In 2015, I hung up my suits and was done competing. I felt it was time to enjoy other physical activities like kayaking, biking, and some fun CrossFit and running events. When COVID hit in 2020, everything changed. The gyms closed, my mental stress grew, and the fear of being a statistic overwhelmed me. I could let it take me over or change my perspective on life. I enjoyed the gym; I enjoyed having goals and dreams; I enjoyed being strong, and I enjoyed my friends and family. I wasn't about to quit. I wanted to be an inspiration to women and the elderly and practice what I preached. In late 2020, I decided to step on stage again and not set limits on myself because of my age.

In 2021 I qualified for a National Masters show. Since I do not use performance-enhancing drugs, I knew the odds were against me, and I did not come home a Pro. But I felt all my hard work
and diligence had paid off, and I came home with even more intensity and focus. Fortunately, I saw that the United States Bodybuilding Federation (USBF) was holding a drug-free show in my area, the Detroit Muscle. It gave me another chance to prove I was "independently strong" and go for Pro status on my terms. In October 2021, I became a Pro.

My journey, by no means, was empty. Family and friends surrounded me. The Lord blessed me with health, strength, and the ability to follow my dreams and passions.

I look forward to future contest seasons and plan to continue to use all the tools provided along the way, including Beverly International supplements. I also plan to continue to have dreams and goals and be an inspiration to all as a natural athlete.

My Training Schedule

Cardio

I am one of those people who would prefer lifting over cardio. At the beginning of prep, it's always a challenge to get it in, and let's be honest, sometimes we are just too tired at the end of a work day. Off-season, I do 45 minutes; during contest prep, I do an hour. I switch my equipment from the stair stepper, treadmill, elliptical, and bike. (I have a trainer for my road bike that I use inside for the winter).  

Presentation Tips

Practice, Practice, Practice. I do 5 minutes of posing early every morning. I have hired a posing coach in the past. I also go to local posing clinics. Even though I don't like watching myself, I will videotape myself, critique it, and run through it repeatedly until I feel I have everything covered.

Gain Muscle as You Lose Fat with this Rare Supplement Technology!

Learn how you can begin using MASS Aminos today to build and shape your ideal physique, faster.

Used correctly, MASS Aminos can produce visible improvements to your body in a fraction of the time you might otherwise have to wait.

There are plenty of supplements that can help you “bulk up”. But how often do you encounter one that makes it easier for you to gain lean muscle as you drop inches, or even pounds, of fat? In fact, simply by adding MASS AMINO ACIDS tablets (MASS Aminos) to their diet and training regimen, many Beverly International clients have been able to do precisely this. Now you can, too.

What is it?

  • MASS Aminos is an advanced amino acid nitrogen technology used by natural physique athletes to support the building and preservation of lean muscle mass.
  • MASS Aminos is available in a bottle containing 500 tablets.

What kind of benefits can I expect from Using MASS Aminos?

  • Increase in muscle mass: Mark S. from Louisville, KY took MASS Aminos and ULTRA 40 (discussed below) “around the clock” –with meals, in between meals, and when he woke up in the middle of the night. In a year, he gained 10 pounds and was harder and leaner than ever.
  • Decrease in body fat: The fact that Mark gained 10 pounds yet was harder and leaner is a clear indication that he gained muscle while losing fat. Others have done the same, even while enduring the rigors of pre-contest dieting (see “Who is it ideal for?”, below). IFBB Fitness Pro Julie Lohre says that MASS Aminos is a pillar of her supplement routine for building a sexy, fit body.
  • Muscle preservation (anti-catabolism): Ian King of Kingsports.net feels that MASS Aminos is the best all-around solution to protect your hard-earned muscle against the transient catabolic effects produced by exhaustive training and strict dieting.
  • Increase in strength, faster recovery: O.C. Cleare, of Bodies in Motion in Clovis, NM, gives clients MASS Aminos stacked with ULTRA 40 and a Beverly protein. According to O.C., everyone who has been put on this stack reports feeling stronger and leaner than ever in just a couple of weeks.

What makes MASS Aminos different?

  • MASS Aminos may be the only product of its kind. It is a custom tablet formulation made exclusively for Beverly International. The chief ingredient is a partial hydrolysate of casein.
  • MASS Aminos contains peptide-bonded amino acids (PBAAs). These are peptides consisting of 4-8 amino acids. Scientific studies provide evidence which indicates that PBAAs are ab-sorbed rapidly and deliver as much as DOUBLE the anabolic power of regular food!

Who is it ideal for?

  • MASS Aminos can be taken by anyone who is trying to gain or preserve lean muscle mass, or enhance recovery.
  • NOTE: This isn’t just an “off-season” supplement! A National Physique Committee (NPC) vice-chairman used MASS Aminos pre-contest to preserve muscle while getting his body fat down to an unbelievable 2.8%. He won his class!

When should I use it?

MASS Aminos are ideally taken:

  • With meals.
  • During training.

How much should I take?

For maximum results:

  • Take 1 tablet per 10 lb of bodyweight per day.
  • Divide your daily allotment of tablets into smaller doses.
  • Take each dose with meals & while working out.
  • Example: A 180-lb athlete would take 18 tab-lets per day. This allotment might be divided into 4 tablets with each of 3 meals (12 tablets total) plus 6 tablets while working out.

What can I stack MASS Aminos with for even faster results?

  • MASS Aminos can be combined with any other Beverly International product.
  • Perhaps the most impressive results have been reported when MASS Aminos is combined with ULTRA 40 100% Argentine Beef Liver tablets. ULTRA 40 acts like a turbo-charged vitamin B complex with blood-building benefits that boost your energy, endurance and stamina inside and outside the gym.

BEVERLY’S TRAINER SPOTLIGHT!

Ryan Stanton is an IFBB pro and can pose with the best of them - 365 days a year. Here he shares his trainer story about Pete Polverini. Ifbb_ryanstanton

I met Pete Polverini a couple of years ago at the gym. Pete has been training for over 25 years, and he and I would trade stories. I found out he still holds the bench rep record for 225lb at Otterbein College, where he played football and later was invited to train at Westside Barbell in Columbus. While in Columbus, he was introduced to Beverly supplements at World Gym (currently Metro Fitness), where he trained for many years under the guidance of JM Blakely.

 

Pete traveled around the globe between 120-140 days per year for a medical device company, and this global traveling lifestyle had taken a significant toll on his health. When the pandemic hit and travel was restricted, Pete had turned 40 and was on a mission to get back in top physical condition. He began training with me to get healthier and transform his body. My first steps were to design a Hi-Lo Carb diet and slowly reintroduce him to Beverly supplements. We have been shooting for 1-2 lb of fat loss a week. To date, his weight has come down from over 300 at his heaviest and sits at 228 at the time of this writing.

The macros for Pete's hi-carb phase averaged 3,450 calories, 275 grams of protein, 475 grams of carbs, and 65 grams of fat. The lo-carb phase averaged 2,550 calories, 205 grams of protein, 250 grams of carbs, and 50 grams of fat. Here's a sample of a lo-carb day diet.

 

Breakfast: Oats with UMP protein and raspberries

Snack: Hard-boiled eggs and an apple

Lunch: Sirloin steak, sweet potato and spinach salad with vinaigrette dressing

Snack: UMP Protein shake and walnuts

Dinner: Ground turkey and marinara sauce with veggies

 

We slowly reintroduced Beverly Supplements, starting with UMP Protein and Glutamine Select. We have now added Quadracarn and ZMA 2000 to increase testosterone and for nighttime recovery. Pete also takes Creatine Select and Muscle Synergy to retain muscle mass, fuel, and repair his body while losing fat.

Congratulations on your success, Pete!

LOOKING FOR MORE ENERGY? HERE'S A FAST TAKEAWAY.

Fast-Up take 1-3 caps before training or whenever you need to lift your energy, mental performance, or mood quickly. (If you haven't tried Fast-Up, you should. I take it every day.)

Uplift take 1–2 scoops before training. Up-Lift is the caffeine-free, zero-crash, zero-jitters, non-habit-forming, you-can-take-it-day-or-night pre-workout formula.

Muscle Mass taking 5 tabs at the start of your workout and 5 more tabs every 20-30 minutes is a super-effective method for keeping the lean muscle tissue you have and helping you build more. In fact, it's the most effective formula you will ever find.

7-Keto MuscLean is primarily used for fat loss, but many clients take 1-3 capsules pre-workout for energy (don't use at the same time as Fast-Up.)

   

BEHIND THE SCENES… HOW IT LOOKS FROM OUR BEVERLY VIEWPOINT

At Beverly, we've experienced a lot of the crazy stuff happening in the world. We've done the best job possible during this crazy time. Covid swept through the company a few times, which slowed our roll. Our Beverly Advisor Team still personally answers your phone calls, and we respond to emails daily. We fill every order quickly and with a high level of accuracy! We may not be surgeons, but we have checklists just like them to strive for that kind of accuracy and precision.

Our Shipping Costs have all gone up, but we have not passed the increases on to you. In some cases, their service has not met our expectations. We apologize for any inconvenience. We want you to get your products as promised!!

 

Our Labs and Supply Chain have also encountered challenges. During the past year, we've had to work around lid shortages, bottle shortages, ingredient shortages, bottle seals and scoop shortages, even shortages of people power at the labs, and significant employee turnover. Covid did a number on our economy, that's for sure. We've been issuing Purchase Orders (POs) 6 – 9 months in advance to overcome these issues. It's difficult to predict sales that far in advance, and we don't want to accumulate too much inventory. We pride ourselves on moving FRESH products out the door with FAST and FURIOUS momentum. We had a few fleeting out-of-stock times, but we should be looking pretty good over the next few months. Our product costs have increased, but we have done all we can to not pass the increases on to you.

Our Social Media has been moved back in house. No one knows US, like US. If you are like me, you want take-aways… practical info, knowledge, how-to's, recipes, training, and the good stuff that helps you get better and stay motivated. We've noticed a lot more engagement since we've taken control, and we thank you all so much for that. Unlike many companies, we do not pay influencers or professionals to take staged photos of our line and pretend to use them. We've been taking REAL LIFE photos of our products and recipes. It's way better to see the real deal rather than something prepped so that you can see a pretty photo. That seems fake to me. Beverly has always been about REAL RESULTS for REAL PEOPLE. I still think REAL IS BETTER. We are all about being REAL and transparent. Hence, NO NONSENSE.

IF YOU'RE IN OUR AREA...

If you're in the area, our Walk-in Product Pick-up area is open again. You'll meet our two newest Team Beverly members, Cole Rankin and Patti Laughlin. We are so happy to have them! They are doing a great job for you.

 

WHAT AN EASY WAY TO ADD FLAVOR TO YOUR UMP!

 

   

Blend 1 scoop UMP Vanilla or Angel Food Cake with 6oz Sunkist Orange (or other orange-flavored drink)

2 fresh orange slices

2oz almond milk, or your choice of milk

1 tsp almond butter (I use the powdered version)

A handful of ice

The Little Known Secret Weapon That Produces Amazing Results For Thousands of Drug-Free Bodybuilders!

The Natural Protein Source Serious Bodybuilders Take to Forge Their “Bodies of Iron”

Everyone’s looking for an edge. Sure, a few modern-day supplement discoveries have provided incredible boosts for today’s bodybuilders, creatine for example, but if you constantly search for the silver bullet supplement, you’ll only wind up with holes in your wallet. Years of experience have revealed a few time-tested basics of good bodybuilding nutrition. Knowing about protein and aminos is common knowledge, but there’s another equally powerful, although less popular supplement, known as desiccated liver – AND strength, size, and endurance all typically increase after adding a quality desiccated liver supplement to your diet.
Liver tablets have been a mainstay of bodybuilding almost as long as the sport itself has existed. Stories from the old timers are filled with examples of phenomenal gains they made on liver tablets. This is still one of the most potent training aids a bodybuilder can use.

Classic Research Study Verifies Liver Extract Boosts Strength, Endurance, Performance - - And Resistance To Stress And Disease.

It was 1951 when Dr. B.H. Ershoff took three groups of lab rats and fed them controlled diets for a twelve-week period. Group one ate a basic diet fortified with vitamins and minerals. Group two ate as much as they wanted of the same diet plus B vitamins and brewer's yeast. Group three ate the basic diet but had 10% desiccated liver added to their rations. Then the doctor placed the rats one by one into a drum of water, out of which they could not climb. Therefore, it was either swim or drown. The rats in Group One swam an average of 13.2 minutes, Group Two, an average of 13.4 minutes. When the experiment finally was concluded…Group Three rates were still swimming! Group Three swam almost 10 times as long. No other supplement we know has even come close to liver for improving endurance. Since then the reports of people whose strength, muscle mass and endurance have skyrocketed (since using desiccated liver) have been as countless as the stars in the sky.

Ultra 40 – Beverly’s Form of this Most Potent Natural Bodybuilding Aid

Not all desiccated liver is what it says it is. When Beverly set out to formulate our liver supplement, Ultra 40, we had to improve upon an already proven winner. We started with the “best of the best” - the highest grade AAA purified Argentinean liver concentrate. Why? The Argentine government will not allow their beef herds to be contaminated with DES steroids, growth hormone or pesticides. Back before steroids, bodybuilders were taking 7.5 or 10-grain tablets and swallowing 1000 tablets a week was very common, (that’s 100 plus a day!). So our next move was to use technology to increase the potency packed into every tablet, because no-one wants to swallow 100 pills a day! Then we worked until we had a formula that contains only trace amounts of fat and cholesterol. What we created had FORTY-FIVE TIMES THE NUTRITIONAL VALUE of whole beef liver AND all the nutrients and enzymes of raw liver, PLUS - all the essential amino acids to pack on muscle - but none of the toxins or fats found in whole beef.

A plethora of nutritional factors occur naturally in liver:

  • High quality protein and amino acids
  • Blood building heme iron (the form absorbed best by the body without toxic buildup)
  • Energy modulating B-vitamins including B-12 and Folic Acid
  • Nucleic acids (RNA/DNA) for proper amino acid utilization and cell growth
  • Fat metabolizing lipotropics (choline and inositol)
  • Antioxidants Co Q10 and selenium
  • Minerals such as phosphorous, copper, zinc, and GTF chromium (insulin regulator)
  • Anti-fatigue and growth factors such as cytochrome p-450.

How Ultra 40 Will Work For You...
Beverly’s Success Formula

A secret at Beverly International that produces more champions than anything we’ve seen is definitely the combination of taking Ultra 40 Tablets and Mass (our amino acid tablets) at each meal. The addition of only four Ultra 40 tablets and four Mass tablets per meal for five meals per day can make a tremendous difference in your physique.

This simple-but-effective supplement program will add up to sixty-five grams of the highest quality protein to your daily intake. The addition of this protein at each meal can have a very positive effect on your hormonal response to eating (more muscle building and fat burning hormones; and less fat storing hormones are produced). Over three months time you will have ingested almost 6000 grams of additional protein, and 24,000 calories of the highest quality nutrients available.

Since it takes approximately 3500 additional calories to gain one pound of bodyweight, dividing 24,000 by 3500 results in a net gain of approximately seven pounds more than if you hadn't taken the Ultra 40 and Mass. It’s no wonder Beverly clients who compete naturally are coming into their contests leaner, yet 5 - 10 pounds heavier than before taking Mass and Ultra 40!

Here’s How to Take Ultra 40 For Best Results

The amount of Ultra 40 that you should take depends on your level of training and energy needs. Beginners can start at six tablets per day (two per meal), and intermediates should take no less than six liver tablets per meal over three meals or 3 - 5 tablets per meal over 5 - 6 daily meals. Start with 1 - 2 per meal and every week add an extra tablet until you reach the desired level. Advanced bodybuilders make fantastic progress on 30-40 liver tablets per day over periods of time. We suggest women take 9-18 tablets per day.

Advanced muscle-building tip: also a favorite trick of Vince Gironda. Take 2-4 Ultra 40 liver tablets and 2-4 Mass peptide-bonded amino acid tablets on the hour (or even every half hour) throughout the day. Clients have reported muscle gains of 1-2 lbs a week using this method.

These amounts allow you to take in tremendous amounts of protein and nutrients without large amounts of food. You should build up gradually to this amount to avoid upsetting your digestion. While desiccated liver is not considered the cure-all it once was by bodybuilders, it has proved time and again invaluable in breaking through those sticking points in your strength as well as contributing to improved energy flow on a restricted diet. In short, Ultra 40 delivers results.

If You Can Only Take One Supplement It Should Be Ultra 40

You know to build muscle it’s imperative that you intensify your rep and set efforts in the gym. But it’s truly the other 23 hours of nutrient loading outside the gym that determines whether or not you’ll make the gains you’re after. If you’re seriously interested in getting the most out of your training stick with the basics of good bodybuilding nutrition and that means Ultra 40.

Ultra 40 is the staple of any good nutrition program and with 500 per jar; you just can’t find a better value…ALL WITH GUARANTEED RESULTS! For added recovery, increased strength, and increases in lean muscle mass, call today and try Ultra 40 for yourself at 800-781-3475.

Desiccated liver contains nucleic acids for proper amino-acid utilization, a growth factor and an anti-estrogen factor, that keeps testosterone levels high, and is also a great anti-toxin. - Vince Gironda, the "Iron Guru"

Growing up, my mother always encouraged me to get outside of my comfort zone and stay active. Sports have always played a role in my life in some way or another. At the age of 14, I discovered my passion for weight training. As a kid, I was always skinny, so the idea of lifting weights and gaining some muscle sounded great to me. After high school, I started fighting in the ring as a kickboxer going undefeated for 3 years.

After a successful journey in kickboxing, I continued weight training in the gym. As time passed, my friends in the gym encouraged me to enter a Physique Competition. At first, I had no interest but eventually gave in and pursued my first show in 2015. In 2016, I began my natural bodybuilding career in the OCB. Since then, I’ve become a top-ranked pro in Men’s Physique, placing 2nd Overall on two occasions at the OCB Yorton Cup.

My success opened many doors in the fitness industry, including becoming a physique posing coach and fitness model. I’ve been able to help hundreds of online men’s physique posing clients worldwide.

Now, I’d like to share my Men’s Physique Success nutrition, supplement, training, and cardio plans.

Supplements

When preparing for a bodybuilding competition, supplementation is a necessity, and it is a top priority for me to have supplements that are safe from banned substances. That’s why I use Beverly International. No matter how many accomplishments you have in life, you don’t have anything without your health; it’s very important to be conscious of what you are putting in your body.

Super Pak with meal #2

Take 2 scoops of UMP mixed with 1 scoop of Creatine Select – Orange flavor for post-workout shake no later than 30 minutes (post-workout) for recovery and growth.

Ultra 40 4 tablets with meals #3 and #6

Mass Aminos 4 tablets with meal #5

Training Schedule

I’ve always trained a minimum of 5-6 days a week, and I like to hit my weaker muscle groups twice a week if possible. My coach recently set a goal for me to put on as much lean muscle mass as possible, especially in my chest and back. The following is an example of my current training routine.

Workout 1: Chest/ Triceps/ Abs

DB Bench Press
5x10-12
Incline DB Press 5x10
Cable Chest Flye 4x15

Hammer Strength Row Machine 4x8-12
Shrugs 3x15, 1x failure
Barbell Rows (Overhand Grip) 4x8-12

Cardio

I like to keep my cardio training between 20-30 minutes 5-6 days a week. I usually like to do cardio after my lifting workouts. I feel that it is much more effective that way. I primarily use the treadmill or Stair Master and incorporate the interval training style method. If I want to speed up my fat-burning results, I will start doing early morning fasted cardio and lift later that day.
 

Presentation Tips

When I first began competing in Men’s Physique, I had no idea how important it was to have an experienced posing coach. Not only experienced but a coach with a track record of success. Posing is an art! I found out very quickly that not all poses work for everyone. After trying to mimic the poses I saw the pros do on YouTube, I realized I needed to find someone who had successfully competed in Men’s Physique and knew how to coach it.

Having an experienced posing coach isn’t enough. You must be coachable. Knowledge isn’t enough; you must apply the knowledge. You must be willing to listen to what your coach tells you to do and do it!

I like to practice my posing year-round, and as I get closer to my show, I practice 3-4 times per week, usually immediately after my workouts for 10-15 minutes.

Lastly, don’t be prideful. I consider myself a pretty good poser and have coached hundreds of Physique competitors worldwide on how to pose. But I will be the first to admit I have never prepared for any of my shows without having a posing coach.

In Closing

Nothing about me is self-made. I owe everything to God and the people he has brought into my life. Throughout my journey, I have learned how valuable it is to have a small circle of friends and mentors who inspire you to be better and support you along the way.

After taking almost four years off from competing as a Men’s Physique Pro, Beverly International supplements played a huge role in my preparation for my comeback this year. I honestly have never felt better preparing for a show. Bodybuilding has added so many amazing things to my life. The amount of work ethic, discipline, and mental strength that I have learned while preparing for five professional bodybuilding competitions has not only helped me grow as an athlete, but it has also helped me grow as an entrepreneur.

If you have a goal, don’t focus solely on the process; focus on the reward. You can do more than you could ever begin to imagine. Just get started!

Stay strong - Shaun

The Natural Protein Source Serious Bodybuilders Have Long Relied On.

Experience IMMEDIATE and SATISFYING results with this all-around physique & performance enhancer!

ULTRA 40 is a high-potency, all-around physique and performance enhancing supplement that can provide benefits to virtually anyone who trains regularly.

Word spreads fast on the Web. As a result, each day more men and women are realizing that ULTRA 40 is one of the most powerful physique and performance enhancers available. Testimonials from real-world ULTRA 40 users reveal that it provides a comprehensive range of benefits (hence, “all-around”). Moreover, it produces results that are immediately noticeable and highly satisfying. Many users consider ULTRA 40 to be one of the best sup-plement investments they have ever made!

All-around supplements like ULTRA 40 are rare indeed. (Another example of such a product is QUADRACARN.) Why? They require the use of expensive specialty ingredients. This makes them expensive to manufacture. Only if the benefits are impressive will customers pay for them. Like QUADRACARN, ULTRA 40 regularly passes the “benefits test” with flying colors. Before we dive into the details of this powerful formula, let’s take a brief look at the history of liver tablets.

Liver tablets: A nutritional treasure from the “pre-steroid” era!

ULTRA 40 is an ultra-premium beef liver tablet formulation. Before bodybuilding became largely a chemical affair (as with steroids, growth hor-mone, etc.), legends of the sport were supple-menting their training with liver tablets. The best of these liver formulations worked incredibly well.

Bodybuilding “gurus” like Vince Gironda and Rheo Blair compared liver tablets to steroids because of their profound physique and performance enhancing effects -without the side effects, of course. They recommended that bodybuilders consume up to 100 or more tablets daily. (Keep in mind some of these liver formulations were less concentrated than ULTRA 40.)

The secret to the all-around benefits provided by ULTRA 40 lies in the fact that liver tablets are more than just a source of highly usable protein. Each ULTRA 40 tablet is literally packed with an array of vitamins and other critical nutrients and growth factors capable of stimulating a wide variety of metabolic pathways including the build-ing of healthy blood and muscle cells, and much, much more.

ULTRA 40 details

What is ULTRA 40? ULTRA 40 is a 100% Argentine Beef Liver formulation. It is available in a bottle containing 500 tablets.

What are some of the benefits that I can expect from using ULTRA 40?

What makes ULTRA 40 different?

  • Derived from 100% Grade 1 Argentine Beef Liver. ULTRA 40 uses the highest grade of liver. It is obtained from grass-fed, pesticide- and hormone-free cattle raised in Argentina. The cattle are raised in facilities inspected by SENASA, which is the equivalent of the Unit-ed States Food & Drug Administration (FDA).
  • Contains heme iron. Heme iron is the most bioavailable form of iron in the diet. It is used by red blood cells to synthesize hemoglobin and muscle cells to synthesize myoglobin. Hemoglobin and myoglobin are proteins that help your blood and muscle cells “trap” oxy-gen for use in energy-producing pathways.
  • Contains no fillers. Each tablet is packed with physique and performance enhancing nutri-ents and growth factors. There’s no “fluff” in these tablets!
  • Unlike other liver tablets, ULTRA 40 is easy to digest and does not cause gas or stomach upset.
  • Popular with elite bodybuilders, some of whom have been using ULTRA 40 for decades to accelerate muscle growth and recovery.

What are people saying about ULTRA 40?

The following ULTRA 40 reviews were recently col-lected from the Web:

Paulwilliamanthony writes: “I have had only 5 days use of ULTRA 40 and already feel the difference with much less fatigue, greater recovery and more get up and go.”

Velmtxmaz writes: “ULTRA 40 is a product that you do have to take the recommend dosage to feel the full effect, but the reward is worth all the pills you have to take. Everything from strength plus stamina/energy and a more fullness feeling of the muscles is your reward when you stay consistent with this product. I will always have this product on my list of essential supplements and would highly recommend anyone give them a try. Remember to take the recommended dose or you will not feel the benefits as well.”

Johnboyw:ULTRA 40 is the real deal. I usually don't respond to much of anything. Many, many pre-workouts gave little to no help. I started tak-ing ULTRA 40 at 1 tab per 10 lbs weight. Monday came and the workout was as usual. Wednesday came and the workout was phenomenal. I hit 10 reps on every set of every exercise, even when I upped the weight from last week. I couldn't fig-ure out what was going on. I thought maybe I just had a good day, but I have a stuffy nose and I got maybe 6 hours of sleep last night, if that. I couldn't figure it out and then it hit me. The liver tabs! That was the only thing that had changed. It wasn't a placebo effect either because I was expecting 0% increase in strength/energy. I went into the gym to-day hoping to meet or increase slightly what I did last week.”

SQBubble writes: “I'm on my 2nd bottle of ULTRA 40, and I will forever use this product. It makes you stronger, fuller, adds detail, and lets you control the weight better when you lift really heavy. I never thought such a simple product would help so much. I will always have some on my shelf. FYI, I take 18 tablets a day (3x6) on workout days and 12 tablets (4x3 or 2x6) on rest days. Get this if you want results.”

Dkwwood writes: “Cheap and conveniently sized tablets (they are actually easy to swallow) that can be taken with meals to boost nutritional quality. I take four or six with each meal depending on the protein content and my workout schedule.”

Mikedemeter writes: “I had the pleasure and privilege of working under Vince Gironda. There wasn’t a drug-free champ that didn’t live on liver tablets, eggs and digestive enzymes to maintain muscular density and vitality. Between meals, ULTRA 40 is an ideal addition –typically 20-30 tabs at a time. You all saw the results back then. Sow the same seeds, reap the same harvest.”

Alconcel4 writes:ULTRA 40 is an old school sup-plement that has stood the test of time. Energy is prolonged and recovery is rapid when taking the recommended doses. Tablets are smooth and easy to swallow. Highly recommended!”
