SCIVATION XTEND STUDY
this is taken directly from a message i received from scivation via facebook:
Xtend is now Scientifically Proven Two Times More Effective than Whey Protein!
The first supplement ever proven to double your fat loss, double your muscle gain and double your strength when compared to whey protein!
Has Xtend Made Whey Protein Obsolete?
In a groundbreaking, double blind independent study led by Jim Stoppani, PhD, Scivation Xtend was scientifically proven to be 2 times more effective than Whey Protein. The Xtend subjects experienced 9lbs of lean muscle growth in 8 weeks. That is 2 times more than the whey protein group. The Xtend subjects lost 2 times more fat than the whey protein group. The Xtend subjects more than doubled their strength gains over the whey protein group. Imagine naturally gaining 9lbs of lean mass, losing 4 pounds of bodyfat and experiencing a massive increase in strength gains in just 8 weeks!
All of these groups were on the EXACT SAME diet and training programs provided by Jim Stoppani, PhD along with Chuck Rudolph, MEd, RD and Team Scivation (TEAM SCIVATION).
There you have it. Xtend is scientifically proven in a controlled study to be better than whey for lean mass growth and to lead to significant LEAN MASS GAINS and FAT LOSS! No other supplement can claim this!
The bottom line is that if you can afford only one supplement, Xtend is the only supplement you need. Xtend has made whey and every other supplement obsolete.
The groups and the results:
Quoted from Jim Stoppani, PhD
"The Xtend guys dropped their body fat % by 2%, gained 9 pounds of lean body weight (I call that muscle!), increased their bench press by about 15 pounds and squat by 25 pounds!
The Whey group dropped their percent body fat by 1%, gained 5 pounds of lean body weight, increased their bench press by about 5 pounds (7 pounds) and squat by about 10 pounds (11 pounds).
The Gatorade group dropped their percent body fat by less than 1%, gained 3 pounds of lean body weight, increased their bench press by almost 5 pounds (4 pounds) and squat by almost 10 pounds (8 pounds)
I round up the bench press and squat weight because you can't increase bar weight in reality by anything other than 5 pound increments."
"The Xtend group lost an average of 4 pounds of body fat.
The whey group lost and average of 2 pounds of body fat.
Gatorade group lost 1 pound of body fat."
When Will it be Presented and published?
Dr. Stoppani is going to present the study at this year's NSCA (National Strength and Conditioning Association) meeting in July. Then it will be submitted for publishing through various journals.
Training periodization was:
Week 0: Baseline testing
Weeks 1-2: 4-5 reps
Weeks 3-4: 6-7 reps
Weeks 5-6: 8-9 reps
Weeks 7-8: 10-11 reps
Week 9: Final testing
Designed by Chuck and Team Scivation at a 35/35/30 P/C/F ratio. All diets for each group were controlled and exactly the same. this was a hypercaloric diet. Per Chuck:
When I was doing the macro calculations, I used the Harris Benedict Equation with an activity factor related to the training program that was designed to GAIN LEAN BODY MASS, there fore these subjects were all in a HYPERcaloric state. Protein grams were figured out first with them being 2.2-2.4g/kg body weight. Due to the load and repetitions of the training program and the fact that the study was based on 10 reps (week 0) then 10 reps (Week 9), not a 1 rep max test, the typical macro ratio for each subject to gain LBM and prevent/lose bf was 30% Carb, 35% Protein and 35% Fat. The goal of the nutrition plan was to priovide calories for Lean Body Mass Gain yet BALANCE INSULIN levels with each meal. Theory being, if you balance insulin you significantly reduce any chances of storing body fat, better yet lose BF.
Each subject had the option to chose from the following protein, carbohydrate and fat sources that were already weighed properly for them. They simply had to physically weigh foods and eat:
Proteins: Egg white, NF cottage cheese, grilled boneless.skinless chicken breast, 96% Fat free LEAN sirloin/ground turkey, tuna canned in water, fresh halibut/tilapia.
Carbohydrates: Oatmeal (plain), brown rice, sweet potato/yam, whole grain pasta and whole grain bread, broccoli, asparagus, Lettuce/tomato/Cucumber, green beans, spinach, blackberries, blueberries, strawberries and bananas
Fats: Almonds, peanut butter, avocado, light salad dressing, Olive oil, walnuts
12 per group=36 total
- males 18 - 32 years old
- minimum of 2 years consistent training
- currently not taking any supplements other than regular vitamin/minerals and regular protein shake
- Average age ended up being 26 years old.
1) 4 Scoops Xtend = 14 g BCAAs (During Training)
2) 28 grams Whey (During Training)
3) 28 grams Carbs as Gatorade (During Training) = Equal calories as the whey protein
There you have it. Xtend is the supplement that you NEED during training!

I have used Xtend many times and it has always helped, but I do not buy into that study. I used 3-4 scoops mixed in with 50% water and 50% gatroade while working out. It helped my recovery and probably stemmed off going too far catabolic, but 2x more than whey? Bottom line, for me, Xtend works well, but I think just drinking plain ole BCAA during a workout will work just as well.

Xtend is easily one of my all-time top 3 supplements. Haven't been without it in years.
This just gives me more reason to keep with the trend
01-30-2009, 05:58 PM
yaeh thats only 4 scoops ive done 7 and started mi workout and sipd on it till about an hour after mi woukout great pumps!

Other than flavoring and BCAA, Xtend also has citrulline malate and B6 which are not usually included in conventional whey.

though i think the same can be said for purple wrath + glutamine, or bcaa + glutamine + citrulline malate..
thoughts on that?
02-02-2009, 05:06 PM
yeah just look at the ingredients ..and take them

Can anyone attest to this study that they have had gains even comparable to what this study suggests?
Im sure xtend has its benefits, but skeptical as to the extent that this 'study' claims. So....anybody had gains comparable to this?

No doubt Xtend is a great supplement. Always take it or Purple Wraath during my workouts. Both of them are great at maintaining my energy levels thru my workout, including cardio.
But, I have my doubts that Xtend is better than Whey protein. If thats the case, the study is saying you can replace a protein drink with Xtend, and get better results. Bottom line, your muscle needs protein to fuel growth. Xtend does not replace protein consumption. Each product is good at what they're intended for, but one does not replace the other.
