The pictures below show the results of the "scientific study" of the JREF Million Dollar Challenge (MDC).

These pictures are taken from the official video from the JREF MDC. Some of you may be woder how we can thank JREF for helping us prove that Dynactiv SR actually improves a person's core strength when we actually lost the challenge. The fact is we did lose, we lost one of the two claims of the MDC, but the second claim is the most important. Does the technology inside of Dynactiv SR actually increase a persons' core strength? Take a look at the pictures and decide for yourself. The pictures clearly show a difference between each test subject when they have the real bracelet and the placebo bracelet.

For actual scientific data look at the next page, we just completed our first clinical study and the results were impressive. This test was conducted using actual scientific methods, under controlled means, and using real clinical instrumentation to determine force output.

For my own personal account of my JREF experience and to learn more of what really happened there, please read through my story on the third tab.

Each picture on the left is WITH Dynactiv SR, and each picture on the right is WITHOUT.

These pictures are taken directly from the JREF MDC video and as such the pictures are the best we could find to show the angles and effects of the real Dynactiv SR technology and the fake band. These pictures are untouched and are only cropped to fit the space. Since we were not allowed our own video equipment I am subject to using only what JREF has provided.

Lastly, there are three things to look at when you go through the pictures.

  • The subjects that tried to force this "balance test" into a strength test tended to tilt their body to the opposite side when holding the fake band (like in the first set of pictures). When holding the real band the subjects started and stayed straighter throughout the test.
  • The subjects that kept this a "balance test" responded in one of two ways; either by merely just holding the position longer and stronger while holding the real band, or their hip popped out to the side in order to keep balance while holding the fake band.
  • The last thing to look for is the effort that each subject put into the test. When a subject had the fake band you can see how hard they had to try to stay up on one leg. When the subject had the real band you can clearly see how those same subjects appeared to need much less effort to stay up.

Subject 1 with Dynactiv SR  Subject 2 without Dynactiv SR
SUBJECT #1: Notice how when this subject has Dynactiv SR his body starts straight and when pressure is applied he eventually tilts to the right. When he has the fake band he tilts to the left. Not only is this a common theme among the subjects, it points out a common problem I faced during the challenge. Many times when a subject had the fake band they actually tried harder to stay up and as you see here and in other pictures they actually tilted they body to the side to stay up. When they had the real band they started and stayed straighter. This subject seemed to also try much harder each time he had the fake band (which was the first band). I don't know if it was because he was the first subject, or if it was because he merely just believed the first one was the correct one and did not try as hard for the next. But, during two tests he tried much harder with the fake band.

Subject 2 with Dynactiv SR  Subject 2 without Dynactiv SR
SUBJECT #2: This was an easy one. It was clear even on stage which band was the real one and which one was the fake one. Look how the subject's body bends at the hips when pressure is applied and how straight the body stays when he has Dynactiv SR.

Subject 3 with Dynactiv SR  Subject 3 without Dynactiv SR  Subject 3 without Dynactiv SR
SUBJECT#3: This was perhaps the most difficult subject to test. Not because of any fault of his but rather because of how high he kept his arms to start the test as shown in picture 3. Having his arms higher than parallel to the ground caused me to push him slightly out skewing the results of the test. However, you can see in picture one when he has Dynactiv SR he is straighter than he is with the fake band as in picture 2. Keep in mind that I never did give instruction to the subjects as a group, only individually back stage when I was first testing to see how each subject responded a few hours before the actual on stage test.

Subject 4 with Dynactiv SR  Subject 4 without Dynactiv SR
SUBJECT #4: This was another easy one, the difference was not so much in the hips as it was with other subjects but rather how well his shoulders tightened up when he had Dynactiv SR vs. the fake band.

Subject 5 with Dynactiv SR  Subject 5 without Dynactiv SR
SUBJECT #5: Like the previous subject, this was an easy one to distinguish. When the subject had Dynactiv SR, his shoulders tightened up and stayed straighter throughout the test.

My Personal Response

For the purpose of my response I would like to address two main points; first is what actually happened with respect to the MDC and the second is what has transpired since...Read More

EMG Data

We are currently having a battery of tests performed using an EMG machine to assess how well the technology inside of Dynactiv SR affects muscular output. So far preliminary tests are quite impressive, with each test showing a difference in muscular output in both peak and duration. We will release the summary when all tests are completed.
