JYM PRO - Muscle Growth, Strength, Energy, Endurance, Recovery
JYM Supplement Science combines real science with best-in-class ingredients and precise doses to deliver unreal results. Pro JYM is my exclusive protein blend designed to help you build muscle, recover faster and train stronger. Whether you want to boost strength, add size or get shredded, Pro JYM is for you. It’s a powerful blend of proteins that add up to pure muscle fuel.
Grow Like a Pro
Each scoop of Pro JYM delivers 24 grams of pure, quality protein. It’s not “spiked” with single amino acids to artificially increase the protein content or made with cheap and inferior whey protein concentrate or caseinates. To make Pro JYM, I selected only the highest-quality whey protein isolate, micellar casein, milk protein isolate and egg white protein (egg albumen).
The 24 grams of protein in each scoop of Pro JYM contain the following:
Whey protein isolate: 7.5 g
Micellar casein: 7 g
Egg albumen: 2.5g
Milk protein isolate: 7 g (5.5 g casein, 1.5 g whey)
Since milk protein isolate is 20 percent whey protein and 80 percent micellar casein, the 24 grams of protein in Pro JYM are really broken down into three main categories:
Whey protein: 9 grams (40%)
Miceller casein: 12.5 grams (50%)
Egg white protein: 2.5 grams (10%)
A Blend Is Best
While a high-quality protein powder should be at the top of everyone’s supplement shopping list, don’t make the common mistake of buying a pure whey protein powder right off the bat. Yes, whey protein is a critical staple for muscle growth, but to truly maximize growth, you need more than just whey. You need a precise blend of performance proteins.
Whey is a very fast-digesting protein. The rapid rate of digestion is one of whey’s benefits, but on its own, this quality can actually be a downfall. Because whey digests so fast, it quickly boosts muscle protein synthesis (MPS). However, it only boosts MPS for a short amount of time.
Research now shows that when you add medium-digesting and slow-digesting proteins to whey, muscle protein synthesis remains elevated for longer than when using whey alone. Since muscle protein synthesis leads to muscle growth, elevating muscle protein synthesis for longer can have a significant impact on your overall gains.
In fact, research confirms that people who add slow-digesting casein protein to a whey protein shake around their workouts enjoy greater muscle growth over time than people taking whey alone. This research is the very reason I recommend taking a blend of fast-digesting whey protein, medium-digesting egg protein and slow-digesting micellar casein.
Say No to Protein Spiking!
Many supplement manufacturers cut corners on their protein powders because high-quality protein is very expensive to make. They often use a dirty trick called “nitrogen spiking.” Nitrogen spiking, also called “amino spiking” or “protein spiking,” is a way to manipulate the test used to measure the protein content of protein powders.
The current method used to assess the amount of protein in a protein powder involves measuring the nitrogen content, which is then converted into protein amount. Nitrogen is used because protein is made of amino acids strung together in a chain, much like a pearl necklace, and every amino acid contains nitrogen. If manufacturers add loose amino acids to a powder, they can fool the test and deliver less pure protein than their labels claim.
Many people think that extra amino acids in their protein powder are beneficial. The major problem, however, is that certain amino acids are not added to make the protein powder more effective. Instead, they’re simply added for their nitrogen. Most single amino acids, such as taurine and glycine, are much cheaper than whey protein, casein protein, milk protein or egg protein. Even highly beneficial amino acids like BCAAs and glutamine are cheaper than protein powder. So, by adding a bunch of cheaper amino acids to their protein powders, supplement companies can boost their nitrogen content, which technically means they boost the amount of protein per serving, at least according to the nitrogen test.
Because the added amino acids are not complete proteins, the protein content of a spiked protein powder is not truly what a nitrogen test claims it is. For example, a whey protein powder may claim to contain 20 grams of protein per scoop. However, if the manufacturer added 5 grams of glycine per serving, then you are only getting 15 grams of actual whey protein and 5 grams of glycine, which would read as 20 grams of protein per serving.
An even bigger problem arises when proteins are spiked with amino acids that aren’t used as building blocks to form proteins in the body. Taurine is once such amino acid. Taurine helps with energy production, so you might first be excited to see a high quantity of it in your protein. However, if 5 grams of taurine has been added to your protein powder that claims to contain 20 grams of protein per serving, you are only getting 15 grams of real protein and 5 grams of taurine. So the extra taurine comes at the expense of total protein.
If your favorite protein powder lists BCAAs, glutamine, beta-alanine, betaine (trimethylglycine), or creatine, you might think it’s a great product because of the additional nutrients. Yes, your protein contains these performance nutrients, but you may be getting them at the expense of the protein, not in addition to the protein. All those ingredients are nitrogen-containing compounds that count towards the total protein amount listed on the label. You might be getting up to 10 grams less protein per serving than listed on the label.
The rampant use of nitrogen spiking is the main reason why I list the precise amount of each protein in every 24 gram serving of Pro JYM. Whey protein isolate makes up 7.5 grams, micellar casein makes up 7 grams, and milk protein isolate makes up 7 grams, and the remaining 2.5 grams comes from egg white protein (egg albumen). That totals 24 grams from complete proteins with no added amino acids or filler nutrients.
The Power of Pro
As with every other supplement in the JYM line, I want you to know the exact ingredients and doses in Pro JYM. I want you to see that it contains nothing but a pure blend of high-quality proteins in the exact amounts needed to maximize growth, recovery and repair. In short, I want you to grow like a pro.
Prepare to experience the power of real science, real ingredients and unreal results.

Pre JYM Pre Workout Powder
A Cutting-Edge Pre-Workout Formula Built on Solid Science*
Upon introduction in 2013, Pre JYM ushered in an era of transparency and became known as the world’s first high-performance Pre-Workout supplement. Pre JYM was designed by renowned exercise and nutrition scientist Dr. Jim Stoppani to allow dedicated athletes to unlock the critical elements to fitness success: motivation, performance, transformation, and growth.*
13 Hand-Picked Ingredients
Pre JYM includes 13 ingredients that complement one another to prime the body for intense workouts, making it a complete pre-workout supplement. When it comes to supplement formulation, it is important to understand how synergies work. Certain ingredients work well when combined with other ingredients. This is where many supplement companies fall down. with PRE JYM, I personally selected these 13 quality ingredients that have fueled my workouts and those whom have applied my advice for years. As a scientist and bodybuilder, I understand how to combine both science and real use to attain real results.
No Proprietary Blends
Look at the Supplement Facts panel of your current pre-workout product and you'll likely see "proprietary blend," "pump matrix," "performance blend," or other catchy name in lieu of listing all ingredients and precise doses of each. Some supplement companies want you to think this means they've created a special concoction that magically delivers unique results. Because this blend is so amazing, they have to keep the amounts of each ingredient secret so that no other company steals the formula.
Truth is, proprietary blends typically serve a different purpose: They allow companies to hide how little of each ingredient they've actually put in the product. These ingredients are often cheap, ineffective, under-dosed, or all of the above. Pre JYM doesn't use proprietary blends – never has, never will. All 13 ingredients with exact doses that are clearly listed on the label. You deserve to know exactly what ingredients, and how much of each, are in the product you buy. Proprietary blends serve the purpose of hiding what’s in the product, plain and simple.
Get stronger in the gym and train harder and longer. Pre JYM will help you do it with ingredients that promote energy, focus, and stamina. Set PR’s in all areas with Pre JYM as your high-performance training fuel.*
Gaining muscle helps support all goals – strength, physique, weight loss, and overall health and wellness. Pre JYM will spearhead your growth efforts with nutrients, not stimulants, that ignite protein synthesis to help you build more lean muscle.*
Nutrients vs. Stimulants
Your pre-workout should contain real nutrients that deliver real results, not various stimulants that do nothing more than get you temporarily "amped up." The Pre JYM formula is based on amino acids (the building blocks of protein) that fuel your muscles and provide "clean energy." The only stimulant in Pre JYM is caffeine, selected for its performance-enhancing benefits, not simply to give you a jolt. Pre JYM changed an entire sports nutrition category when it launched in 2013. Before then, pre-workouts were loaded with stimulants you couldn’t pronounce that gave you the jitters and little else. Stimulants provide a temporary boost. Nutrients, on the other hand, are the foundation for real gains in strength, muscle-building, endurance, and overall performance. Pre JYM was the first ever true performance pre-workout, and years after changing the industry, it’s still the product smart consumers choose to fuel their muscles, and their goals, with actual nutrients.*
No BS, Just Science
I've been studying nutrition and supplement science both in the lab and in the gym for decades. I’ve done the research, and I’ve converted it into real results for millions of real people just like yourself. I began educating hard-training men and women worldwide through the pages of Muscle & Fitness, FLEX, and Muscle & Fitness Hers magazines before finding a home for my programs, articles, and videos. I developed Pre JYM back in 2013 to take the results to the next level and provide myself and anyone else training hard in the gym the ability to access, in one bottle, the best supplement ingredients to help build lean muscle, torch body fat, improve strength, and boost performance.*
