Just completed my log, check it out at: Resolving the Debate: Animal Pump v. Shock Therapy
My final thoughts on the products:
Animal Pump: Didn't notice much at all on this, except for the first day I tried it. Had a cup of coffee about an hour before taking the pack and the combo made me light-headed. That first day was also the only time when there was any significant increase in "pumps". When taken without any other caffeine before my subsequent workouts, received no extra energy, stamina or focus that my normal morning coffee and multi provide. Sorry guys, this just wasn't for me.
Shock Therapy: As I said in my log, I felt like I was chugging dimetapp before each routine, that's what the flavor reminded me of. Shock Therapy, though, did have much more noticeable effects on my drive, energy, and as the week progressed, focus too. I'm not really a stim-junkie and I typically avoid caffeine at t times other than the morning, but I nevertheless definitely liked Shock Therapy more of the two.
A Big Thanks to all the Animal and Universal Reps for their support and to the Company itself for providing some quality supplements for all of us testers!

Ok fellas, my log is 100% complete. You can check it out if you like, my link is in my sig!
I was skeptical with Animal Pump at first, Im more accustomed to the intense energy rush preworkout supplement. However, I was pleasently surprised with my log with Animal Pump. It really taught me that you dont need that "rush" to have an excellent workout. My week of Animal Pump treated me well. I didnt experience any increased energy in the gym, and the pumps were few and far between, but what I really noticed is a BIG boost of endurance and an increased overall sense of well being, like I was "on" during all of my workouts and I was in tune with the exercises. As I stated in my log, what I loved most about Animal Pump was its effects on Cardio. I havent had such great cardio workouts in a very long time. Each time, I felt like I could give more and more when my workouts were over, usually Im ready to fallover at that point.
My experiences with Shock Therapy went a lot different than with Animal Pump. With each dosage, I felt the increased bouts of energy associated with my usual pwo supplements that I love. I had some nice pumps during workout as well. What I lacked in my Shock Therapy workouts however was that great endurance I got with Animal Pump. When my workouts were over, I felt like I had nothing left in the tank.
My verdict is in...and the winner in my eyes is ANIMAL PUMP!!!!
Thank you once again Universal/Animal guy's for providing me with this great opportunity to log this for you. I enjoyed every minute of it.

Okay here is my 3rd attempt to log my final review of the products. My apologies for the timing as things have been crazy at work in addition to it being my last week before going on to a new job.
I have to say I was very surprised by pump. I wasn't sure what to expect and am used to the energy rush from most Pre Workout supps I have taken. While there wasn't the energy rush the sustained focus and concentration were great. Pump also just added a great endurance to my workouts and the additional benefit of being more focused at work throughout the day.
Shock was more of what I was use too in a PreWO supplement. For me though the Shock was just a little too intense. I had to back off the dosage to make it tolerable or I was jittery and just not with it for my workouts. I did like the added boost in energy and also got some great pumps from shock. You can never beat walking out of the gym with the shirt tight around those arms.
In then end I chose Pump though for the sustained focus and endurance it provided. I am not a big stimulant person and usually just drink coffee on the way to the gym in the morning. That seems to work fine for me and my greatest benefit is really controlling movements and the being able to utilize the muscles being worked to the fullest. Pump was the product that did that for me. So many thanks to Universal for allowing me to run this log.

Thoughts and reactions...
I'm a bit torn... I like the convenience of Pump... Just grab and go... Great focus, and intensity were the themes of my workouts on it...
Shock Therapy gave me a greater energy burst, and I like the taste... Both assisted me in getting killer pumps... But, I generally workout right after work, and need that boost...
And, the winner is.............

There was nothing new with PUMP that i didn't know about. It's a great product. In the past, Pump has given me more focus and energy for the duration of my workout, skin bursting pumps with different rep ranges, and helped me get through my weight struggles.
When i took the PUMP for the promo, I took it for 4 workout days(M<T<TH<F). On Monday I noticed energy levels were up at the beginning and the focus was there 3/4 of my workout. Tuesday was the same but noticed more of a pump, along with higher energy levels through out the entire workout. Thursday, I really started to feel the full effect of the PUMP. Energy, Focus, Strength, and stamina was up all the way. Lastly, Friday, was great!!! It was arm day, need I say any more!!!!!!!!
I have never tried this product before and thank U-REP for letting me to do so! It was awesome.
When I took the SHOCK for the promo, once again I took it for 4 days, the same days as above. On Monday, as soon as 15 mins i was ready to go tear so weights off. The extreme focus was so intense that it actually felt like the alpha male was coming out. The pump was not there yet and energy was lasting all the way through my workout. Tuesday the same as Monday, but Thursday and Friday was UNREAL! I finally started to feel more of a "pump", but not like Animal PUMP did.
These 2 products are basically the same with 1 differences. The SHOCK gave my more aggression and energy in my workout. The PUMP gave me more of a "pump" and the energy last a little bit longer, but never got to the point has the SHOCK did.
With 1 sample left w/ each i decided to follow that next week with PUMP on Monday and SHOCK on Tuesday. The combination of the 2 was worth it. It actually intensified the 2 supps. I will be doing a PUMP/SHOCK stack(1 day on with PUMP followed by 1 day on with SHOCK and keep that cycle until I run out). What do you guys think about that?
Verdict: SHOCK THERAPY!
Sorry for the delay, life has been a little busy!

Sounds good to me V. Glad you did well on both supplements. Your review was very well written as well.

Tally The Votes!
I'm going to say it this way:
Each product, both Shock Therapy and Animal Pump have their place. If I had to choose one over the other for the rest of my life I would be upset.
I find that Animal Pump gives me drive that lasts a long time and a much harder pump in my muscles. I also feel better, not as nauseated and I feel stronger than I do on ST. All in all, I get way better results with this product over the ST. After taking AP I find I still have energy from it half the day later.
With Shock Therapy I find that I get a quick rush of energy that doesn't last as long and is a bit prone to upsetting my stomach as well as giving me a mild headache if I take it on an empty stomach. I do get good energy from it and a nice pump. The recover between sets is good. A few hours after the gym the rush is gone.
Given the way the two products work for me both have their place. When I workout in the evenings I like to use some ST because the rush comes on quick but then wears off in time for me to get to sleep at a reasonable time. Animal Pump is good for my Saturday morning workouts because that is when I hit it the hardest and then I'm not shot for the rest of the day after my workout as AP sticks with me. I can take AP in the evening but I have to take the red stim pill out.
All in all I like and will continue to use both products as I push for more with each workout.
My final vote for overall effectiveness and performance?...
It's got to be Animal Pump! :bb3:
09-26-2008, 10:09 AM
well, it has been fun comparing these two products...
i have used them both regularly in the past, but never stopped to actually compare them.
first thing is that both of these products worked for me, each with different advantages.
here's my take on them both:
- convenient: i like just slamming down a pack
- energy: smooth and sustained
- focus: excellent mental focus during workout
- flexibility: ability to remove stims
- pumps: good solid pumps
- powder mixes quickly and easily and tastes decent.
- energy: kick in the ass! if you're feeling rundown or tired, ST will get you through your workout.
- intensity: the energy in ST really gets me going
- pumps: very "full" pumps and vascularity
Winner: Animal Pump.
overall, i prefer the smooth, sustained energy and focus from the red pill.
when you combine that with the convenience of the pack, ability to remove the stims, and good pumps, it's tough to beat this combo.
that being said, i pretty much always have a tub of ST and Storm in my cupboard.
these are two products that work, are cheap, and a tub lasts for a long time.
for those that would like to read my workout log, here it is:

First off let me say i have a VERY high tolerance for caffeine so that may be the reason for my lack of results.
Okay, so after being done with both here are the pros of both:
-easy to take
-slow released energy
-decent, but not great pump(I lift in the low rep range)
-no extra vascularity
-quick burst of energy(for days with no motivation)
-for some reason I feel more alpha drinking a pre workout drink.
-once again, decent pump but arms feel tighter.
yup it just worked a little better for me. although Animal Pump was very close behind!

Reading through some of these reminds me that I need give shock therapy another chance.

Does the "pump" feeling from Animal Pump increase with each dosage. I had a sample pack that I took and I got a decent pump, I just wondered if the effects would be more intense as I took more of it.
10-03-2008, 12:51 PM
That is how it was for me. It was great on the first try but just kept getting better for about 2 weeks before I was getting max results. After that it held too which I was very pleased with. I continued using it for another 8 weeks and every workout left me with rock hard Pumps and insane drive in the gym. I love the Animal Pump.
