Hyper Pump Review by Mixelflick
First workout today with Hyper Pump. Here are my impressions:
Reminded me of those freeze pops I had as a child. Keep in mind I'm a "buy the raws no matter how they taste" kind of guy. But by any measure, this was a pleasure to drink.
Even though I train like a powerlifter, I noted a significant difference in terms of fullness. Big fan of malates in general and the arginine/citrulline malates in the product compliment each other nicely.
Workload Capacity: 9.5/10
Here is where the product really shines, IMO. Seemed like I had an extra rep or two in me every set. Surprising. I suspect this is the beta-alanine.
I'm busy, so popping the little shot bottle open and slamming it was a pleasure.
Overall: To be determined.
I only have one suggestion to improve the product: Switch out the glutamine for N-Acetyl Cysteine. I'm no fan of glutamine unless it's 10+ grams at a shot. NAC isn't a volumizer, but in terms of replenishing glutathione and contributing to long term health/performance, I think it has it all over glutamine. The lemon-lime flavor is also one of the few that would mask the taste of NAC. Just my $.02.
For the first outing, I was very impressed. Can't wait to see where I'm at after the dirty dozen are gone.

Forgot to note I'm on the Anabolic Diet so this workout was after 5 full days of carb depletion on maintenance calories.
After reading more, I think I might be underestimating the effect of the glycerol. This goes WAY back but in Mauro DiPasquale's original supplement review book he cites glycerol as having some rather unique effects, especially when used with such a diet.

Good Start...I m anxious to see your results after the dozen too!!

Second workout completed.
Everything is coming along quite nice. Felt a more pronounced energy boost this AM as I downed HP on an empty stomach. Big difference with yohimbe hcl on an empty stomach vs. with food for me.
Pump was good but again the workload capacity is what hits me the most. I think the increased water I hold from the glycerin is helping a lot, particularly during the week (I'm on low carbs during the week).
I hit 295 for 2 sets of 5 today on the bench which was right on schedule according to my chart. Onward and upward..

3rd workout down.
Tripled 320 on the bench and 150 on a arm rows all with good form. Despite the low reps I definately feel more "inflated" than usual.
Beta-alanine tingles were there too. I guess at this point I'd describe this product as "solid". That is, you can slam one and feel/see some pretty unique things going on short term during the workout. I would imagine with everyday use the combination of elevated carnosine levels and endurance from citrulline malate would be pretty sweet too. Now, if only I were lean enough to have glycerol shine through

Last few workouts have been more of the same. Consistent pumps, better hydration and workload capacity is better. I'm going to try a double shot next session to see if there's a difference...

1.) Does in fact, deliver a solid pump
2.) Does so via multiple actives (Glycerol, Arginine Malate, Citrulline Malate etc.)
3.) Improves workload capacity (Beta-alanine)
4.) Tastes great.
Your biggest selling point here is.. no pills and it works fast. You just slam it and don't have to think about it. The little shooter bottles travel well. Being small, I can even get it on a plane as a liquid (although it's borderline). I hope you look into a powder version/look harder at adding NAC, but that's just me. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to review this product. It caused me to give 1AD/4AD a second look after I initially dismissed them.

No problem thank you for the great log. I will suggest a powder form. powder would cost less to ship and bring our overall cost of the product down. Maybe have two verison's one with powder and one without. I do like the convience of taking it to the gym and just killing right before the workout. No mixing...

this sounds like a real positive product. After my run with hypertrop-x I will give this a go
