PROMO: Animal Pump vs. Shock Therapy Comparo
We're looking for a few good members who've run pre-workout supps before to test Animal Pump, head-to-head, against Shock Therapy. Both are pre-workout, creatine-based NO supps but in many ways are very different.
Animal Pump is a "pack" supp like all Animal products--pills inside a pack. The stims in Pump are milder, smoother but more sustained.
Shock Therpay is a flavored powder that comes in grape and punch. It provides a faster, bigger "kick" than Animal Pump.
Among fans, there are long debates about which is better. Here for example: Animal Pump vs Shock Therapy and/or Storm? - the F O R V M
For this mini-promo, we're looking for solid AM members who have ideally run a pre-workout supp before and would be interested in keeping a two-week sponsored supp log here. The goal is not to see how our supps compare to our competitors, but instead, how Animal Pump compares to Shock Therapy. We're just lookin' for more feedback... By doin' it this way, maybe we'll also avoid some bias. We shall see.
Anyways, we'll select 20 winners who will get 5 packets of Shock Therapy and 5 packets of Animal Pump. Assuming a 5-day split, this will work out to a week on each product, for a total of a 2-week log. The protocol will be to run Animal Pump the first week and Shock Therapy the second week and compare. Ideally, winners should get off on their supps a week in advance--especially those who are on comparable products. It goes without saying that the sponsored supp log should be honest. At the end of the two week sponsored log, a summary of your thoughts would be awesome.
So if you're interested in running this two-week sponsored log, let it be known here. Tell us why you'd like to run this comparo. Thanks fellas.
Gotta have a U.S. mailing addy and be at least 18.

I would, but I'm already logging NR. Great opportunity for testers to try both products. I've used both products before and love them. I would only hold Shock Therapy in higher comp. for myself because it takes a bit for me to respond to pills. For people who are great with pills, I think AP will surprise those who haven't taken it; it's an awesome product. They're both awesome. lol

I'm in!!! What's the timeframe of this looking like? Do you want an application or just an I'm in? lol.
I'd have no problem starting this asap. Only two weeks, so I'll push back my next log by a week or two.

Nice promo. I use Animal Pump on the regular but some days when I am dragging and need an extra kick I use Shock Therapy instead.

pump I used it previously and enjoyed it Shock Therapy jacks my stomach up but it gives you alittle extra kick in the ass

I'm down for it!!! I've been a HUUUGE fan of Pump... But, the debate whether Shock Therapy is batter than Pump has stuck in the back of my tiny little brain... And, what better way, than to find out first hand... And, once the debate is settled, I'll have a permenant fixture in my arsenal...

First of I'm a old school animal supporter. My first actual supplement was the animalpak years ago. I'm not runnng any logs right now so I'm definatly free (lol). I've tryed alot of pre-work out supplements and have never found one thats been consistant week after week so recently i've been searching fr new one. I've not had the pleasure of trying either of these main reason my local stores has an enadequate selection of your line up. So with that said I beleive I can be a non-bias canidate who can make a honest detailed log for you guys sence I've never used either. Appreciate opportunity.

I wouldn't mind trying this myself. Currently I am a huge fan of Pump, however I have used a few other Pre-Workout supps prior to landing Pump, and never sailed away from it after that.
So I see the log is to compare Pump with Shock. Well I have been monitoring the Universal website waiting for the samples of Shock and Storm to appear. I have been researching Shock to see if it could give me the same results as Pump, but also ease the pain on my wallet since it gives me more servings for the dollar.
Yet, on the whole bang for the buck idea, I am unsure. To me the price is not the only factor in the "bang for the buck" if I pay less for something, but it doesn’t work for me then I got no bang, however if it works and cost more, then I can accept the additional dollar amount no problem.
This promo/log gives me the opportunity to run them side by side to prove to myself which ones better for my body, and will let me know if I respond to the pill form of Pump better, or the powder form of Shock.
Now for the log, no problem. I will run the exact same workouts with the exact same exercises/rest in between, and give my unbiased review updated daily.
EDIT: Do you still consider APO AP a USA address? If so then I'm good, if not desregard this post.

U-Rep guys...I would love the opportunity to run this test log for you. I am a HUGE pwo supp fan and have tried oodles of them. I received your Animal Pump free sample and enjoyed the workout I had with it. I've never tried Shock Therapy, but I would definetley love to try it out and document my results compared to animal pump with you. I believe I could provide honest and unbiased feedback for you based on how I personally reacted to each of these supplements.

I started with the white flood about 2 weeks ago. I feel a slight difference while lifting. I am getting a good 1-2 extra reps per set and I am making it thru the whole workout with energy to spare. I cant compare it with anything else as I have never taken anything else.
That is why i am willing to try out animal pump and shock therapy! ive only heard good things
my white flood will be running out shortly
im sure these products will be well worth it and maybe if these can help me achieve some new pr's!

can we enter if we explain why we are interested although never having used it? I ordered some samples from BB dot com a long time ago and they still have yet to come.
08-13-2008, 01:53 PM
For the record, for any company rep interested, we'd be happy to send ya out some samples of both. However, for these fellas, there's no need to keep a "sponsored" log. Wouldn't want to jam anyone up. So if you're a rep and you wanna try both, hit me up with a PM. Cool?
08-13-2008, 01:54 PM
I honestly haven't run either of them and i am very tolerant to caffeine. I've heard great things about both and would love to try them out. I can give a day to day journal of my workouts and how they went each day, then run a comparison review of how i responded to the each. Hopefully i could respond well to these two, as i have heard they are very strong and would show others who are tolerant to caffeine that they might very be the answers to their prayers.
The pre workout supplements i could compare them too are:
NO shotgun(v1 and v2)
Good Luck to everyone!

I'd be up for this short log to compare as I'm a pre-workout supp fanatic. I have only tried Animal Pump once about a year ago via a sample and probably around the initial release of shock therapy, i tried one sample, but vaguely remember how it was. Recently I've found a new favorite that I feel is very close to impossible to beat in this realm. VPX NO-Shotgun is what i'm currently using and hands down its the best I have ever used. I will provide honest feedback. If you think your product can stand up to NO-Shotgun then I'm def in. Below is a list of pre-workout supplements I have used in the past:
Vasocharge(and I loved this product until I found Shotgun)
Cold Fusion EX
MHP Trac Extreme

I haven't tried either one, but I just recently got off of nano vapor so if i still quailify i'm definitley in.
08-13-2008, 02:15 PM
I'd love to give it a shot. Trying to try all of the great products offered by the great sponsors here. I am definitely a PreWO fanatic. I love trying new PWO supps to see what really gets me going! Just got done reviewing one Animal Pump Pak. I'd love to get my hands on some more. I'm an honest tester with a love for lifting and supps! I'd love to try more Animal products and this is just that opportunity!
You guys are a great addition to the AM community!!

I'll log them. Used a variety of pre-workout supps, both brand name and just bulk, but neither Pump nor Torrent. I have experience logging a couple of products: AMS' HypertropX and AR's Napalm. Really enjoyed both of them.
My diet and training protocols are exact and very disciplined and my supp regimen right is now is minimal: fish oil, vitC, EGCG, ALCAR and prot powder. The addition of a preworkout formula would be awesome, let alone getting to test two different ones!
If it makes any difference, I'm a molecular biologist, and researching supplements and testing their efficacy is one of my hobbis.
My logs are thorough, informative and consistent - check em out:
