Right now I am in the last week of whole body workouts so good pumps don't come that easily. Next week i shift to a more conventional workout structure, and this should really shine.
First workout Sunday 4/6
Taste + thickness were a little odd, but not bad. drank it and started working out within 5 minutes. Reached a new PR in squats, and all exercises felt really good. set to set recovery time was great as well, a few times I found myself not quite ready breathwise when my muscles felt ready for another set. At the end of the workout, I had a moderate chest pump, a moderate to strong tris pump, and a strong bis pump. The chest + tris pump faded within about 30-45 min, the bicep pumps still were there a little up to maybe 2 hours later.

I started my workout on squats, and just didn't feel it in me. failed at 8 reps (doing set of 20). Realized the bottle of hyperpump was in my pocket, and hadn't drank it. popped it right then, and went on with my workout. new PR on wide grip pulldowns. worked biceps a little higher weight today, they felt "snug" even 3 hours later. Was a nice pump on bis + tris today, didn't really get much on chest.

Today I remembered the hyperpump, and made it thru my 20 squats too. Man does that suck, 20 squats This was the end of the full body workouts, I think i'm going back to SAIS routine, as its pleasant and has enough variation that I don't get bored.
Bicep pumps today were extra nice, chest felt good too, tris not so much this time.

ah that sucks. I am kinda limited too, but just by arthritis. i can only go a little below parallel with any amount of weight without it hurting. if I do 10 ass to ground squats with just bodyweight it hurts
forgot to update for today. Was chest + bis in new routine. Really a nice pump on both, got a bit of the visibly stretched skin look on bis - where its kind of extra glossy

yeah, 40 isn't exactly fun.
today should be an interesting workout, will be legs + back, and if I feel up to it triceps too. hard to say what energy will be left after legs/back.

well the answer to my question is "not much"
as maybe you can guess by what time my other post was, I didn't sleep too well last nite. got under 5 hours worth, but rolled out of bed almost 2 hours early anyhow, and started my day. workout was legs + back. Got partway thru squats before I realized I forgot hyperpump, so next set break I went and took it
Didn't really slaughter any prior highs, but this is first time back to this workout routine in a while (and first time on my home gym) so I needed to reestablish working weights. Was doing squats for 200lbs, which was pretty nice, and wide grip pulldowns are just breaking bodyweight. Ended up with a nice back pump, as well as a little bit of a bi pump. Was a nice workout, and could definitely tell the difference after the hyperpump

again today forgot the hyperpump at the beginning so got thru 2 sets before I realized it silly me. Today's experience was a little different though. I got a really nice chest pump and fantastic shoulder pump during the workout (possibly best shoulder pump ever), but for whatever reason they both faded pretty fast after the workout. The chest still kept a little pump, but not much. the shoulders went from super pump to just sore within 30-45 minutes post workout. Granted thats not bad, but the other days it seemed to hang around even longer

Nice...does it hit you fast like it does me and some others...I mean I feel it in like 10-15 mins max....maybe I'm a freak case, but who knows...
What type of home gym do you have....I bought Ironmaster dumbells and two workout benchs....since I can't do squats...lunges work okay (legs are small so not nearly as good as squats)
I m think about buying the $1k add on for leg press and a few others....I just need more room in my apartment....three bedroom coming soon...lol.

Makes me wonder if tolerance would come into play.
BTW you have a memory like mine....but a little better....I'll just completely forget until I m done with the workout and be like....that was as intense....OH YEAH I FORGOT THE....lol.
I need some Ginko.
When I get older I think I'll just tat my name and SSN on myself so I can remember

it hits pretty fast, I notice it within the first 10 min or so. I couldn't imagine tolerance coming into play, but possible. More likely it was just the combination of lack of sleep and what I particularly ate. I've now been doing a strict CKD for a full week, so thats a bit different too (previously was a TKD).
the home gym is a body solid leverage system. I've got it plus a set of powerblocks for dbs

OKAY starting now.....LD's is taking monetary donations....it's for the kids people!!...lol

And I forgot saturday's workout... legs + back and somehow I forgot it was supposed be triceps and did biceps instead. reached a new high in squats, also ended up with a bit of a hamstring pump which was novel. back workout was nice and strong too. I had taken the hyperpump about 10 minutes prior to working out this time. Also, this was my first carbup so I was loaded with healthy carbs. Didn't end up so much with back / lats pumps, did get a really nice bicep pump

ah dangit. forgot the hyperpump preworkout today. was a nice workout anyhow, but didn't get the nice upper back pump. pity.
