The FOOD pump! You want some-NO-You NEED some!
- 05-12-2008, 07:43 AM
Well my experience with Anabolic Pump might be a bit different than other people's. The first bottle I bought last fall, I was bulking, and I was taking in ~ 800-1000cal above maintenance! So unlike many other users that experienced fat loss, I admittedly did have some fat gain. I could only assume though that if I cut my cals I would get a recomp effect. But the thing that impressed me was how little fat I actually put on! In the 4ish weeks the bottle lasted me, I managed to put on ~ 4 lbs of muscle, and only about 1lb of fat!
I have been training for several years, and the results in the gym were quick. All my lifts were going up, and I was recovering quickly because I was able to eat so damn much and recover quickly. After my 1st bottle, I switched to Yellow Gold thinking I could save myself some $ and still get the same results. However yellow gold just didn't have the same kick for me, however I noticed I was putting more fat on and had less of a partitioning effect. I've just gone through my 300g (Capped thank goodness!) and now have 2 bottles of AP en route to see if I can match my progress from my last AP run.
In all honesty though, I never experienced the "muscle pump" that many people noticed. A few days after starting AP I though once to myself in the shower that my pecs looked a bit harder, but never really noticed anything. It could be because of my low bf, who knows. Also I haven't used other nutrient repartitioners (i.e. ALA or Vanadium , Bulk Banaba etc) but I feel that the combination that Jacob put together in AP must work quite synergestically because I noticed a big difference between AP and YG, despite taking in 1g of the YG. On a side note, I bought 25 lbs of organic oat bran, so I've got lots of complex carbs to test it with

AP helps me down bigger meals without feeling bloated. It really helps with me being an ectomorph and sometimes having a hard time forcing myself to eat like I need to.

I am not going to sit here and elaborate on how this works and what it does for your body.
But what I can tell you, is that it allows me to eat what i want, maintain my weight, and push more at the gym. I have read all the reviews about this and figured, eh, why not give it a shot.
Got my bottle, took a pill...and was like...whoa...what is that I feel...a nice ass pump. Then I ate. I have always had issues with keeping weight off. I was eating at most 40 - 50 grams of carbs a day and always tired from lack of energy/food. Now, been on this a week and a half, I have energy, I sleep good, and believe it or not, I have been eating on average 250 grams of carbs a day and have gone down a pound. My bench as gone up 20 pounds in just over a week which was shocking. I have gone from 250 to 270 on bench and went from 210 to about 207/208 on weight...so maybe more than a pound loss, but it varies.
I like the fact that I can eat, feel energized, and lift.
Now on to recreate. That stuff is my nite aid...I have not slept this good in years, and that is complete honesty. I am getting about 6 1/2 hours a night and fully rested. And it is a solid sleep. I have been waking up at 6AM on my own, not tired, up, washed, dressed, and off to work. Thermogenic effect kicked in in about 4 days. nice to actually see a full sweat when lifting.
So, 9 days in, feel the results, and I think I may be leaning out a bit. I got 21 days left of recreate and then I will need a 2nd months worth of that and anabolic. I look forward to running these a full 60 days.
Oh yeah, and what felt good is I saw Mom for mother's day and she said I looked like I was slimming down...and I was the same weight she saw me at last time!

i really liked the result AP gave to me because my muscle felt hard every single day when i popped my AP then ate 15 minutes later. i ate loads ans loads of food and didnt seem to get more fat on me but managed to grow like never before since im taking AP, the guys in my football team told me that i was looking great and making great progress in the gym for the upcoming season, even the coach told me about it. will buy again when ill get more money

I wanna say that USPLabs has always stood up to their claims, and AP, PSlin is no exception. I was lucky enough to have the chance to try them all, in different stacks, and it works extremely well.
My first dose, first rep made me feel like I was in Heaven. Heaven I tell ya. The pump was more intense than anything I have ever tried. And that includes the PH I tried when I was a young fool (1-ad).
I did the WHOLE USP stack ( Powerfull, supercissus, and AP) a little while ago with X Factor, and let me tell ya, it is the best natty stack you can find. Humongous pumps, and HUGE GAINS. Let me tell ya this. On top of this, I was leaning down!
If you never tried AP, you gotta feel it to beleive it. It will leave you laughing while you do your reps, and for the next 5 hours after your workout

Ok here we go..i don't know where to begin but i will try
First, i love Anabolic pump due to how it provides amazing results based on your diet. If your diet is solid you toss AP in on your carb meals and are good to go. There is no need to change your diet or make your diet work around your supplements. I feel the majority of athletes and lifters should be eating carbs so this just truly supplements those diets.
Second, it allows for better management and use of the carbs you eat. This in turn allows for better performance in the gym. I note higher vascularity, pumps, and endurance from AP in the gym as well as effects outside.
Next, i love how on a diet it keeps my energy levels and strength up. Dieting can be a pain but with AP i feel much better. When you do not have the worry of muscle loss or feeling like crap because the weights are moving down(in most cases they continue to rise). This in turn gives you a better mentality and less stress leading to better faster results.
Then there is the fact that i believe that it has helped change my body's reaction to carbs. In the past i was sensitive to them and had trouble keeping high amounts with out gaining fat, yet even when i have to cycle off AP ( ) i still react much better to my carbs.
Did i mention how it increases the effectiveness of everything else? Well it does It helps with the uptake of creatine mono as well as jamming nutrients into the cell to cause a highly anabolic environment.
As you can see i can just keep rattling off these short blurps about many of its effects...just check my post history and how many times i recommend it and you will see i am not full of crap when i post this.
All in all i feel it is a foundational supplement for me. I will always use it and poseidon and not feel the need to really add more other than intrabolic.
With food being the most anabolic substance out there, why are people looking for miracle pills when they have something that helps them get MORE out of what is really ANABOLIC?
Quote from my review in march:
-Finally the most impressive supplement I have ever used. I honestly can not say how many bottles of Anabolic Pump I have been through, but it has been the most purchased supplement I have ever used. I have always had a pretty bad relationship with carbs, too few and I do not function very well and too many and fat becomes well acquainted with my belly. Over the time I have used Anabolic Pump I have become increasingly more in tune with my body and I feel it has slowly shifted my ability to handle carbs to a positive one. This has also helped to lower my BF set point, allowing me to maintain a leaner physique throughout the year(and it seems to continually help lower this!) With the help of Anabolic Pump I can bulk on a pretty high amount of carbs and even lose fat with a moderate amount given the right other aspects are apparent in my diet and training. Anabolic Pump has allowed me to get insane pumps, apparent vascularity throughout the day, increased muscle density, and a leaner physique. The beauty of AP in my opinion is that it optimizes the carbohydrates you are already eating. As someone who strives to keep an excellent diet, this helps to maximize the effects of the carbs with out any of the negatives they used to have on my body. With just Anabolic Pump and basic supplements I can continue to greatly improve my body and have incredible workouts. Since starting Anabolic Pump a little less than a year ago I have added 15-20lbs of muscle on my frame. With its help I have altered my physique and gained more self confidence. Anabolic Pump is the most successful supplement I have ever used and will continue to be a staple in my regiment.

I like it because I can eat carbs without the fat gut feeling. My muscles feel full all time. Diets are a whole lot easier, because I can eat carbs. Workouts and strength feel great without the hormones. There is no one that should not be taking it.

Damn, Jacob I know we discussed in another thread of how well P-Slin/AP/PowerFULL work'd for myself in PCT but I can't find the post. I'll keep digging

I love Anabolic Pump because it let me increase the amount of carbs and calories I eat per day without fear of fat gain. It truly is awesome to see your muscles looking fuller and you weight going up while your waist stays nice and tight. I never really got the crazy pumps that some people get but I defiantly get a fullness to all my muscle bellies.
I find it also works great on cheat days and really makes the most of all those calories. I fell like they are going to the right places while taking AP.
I'm currently using it in my epidrol/igf-1 cycle and plan to continue to use it throughout my PCT to help me make that transition as smooth as possible.

Ok lets try this route, why I love Anabolic Pump? That's simple I have never tried it! However, I have been following the advice of the members of Anabolicminds.com for just about all of my workout and Supplement regiment this year and I have never seen the gains that I am seeing now. At 42 years old and only working out for the last 3 1/2 years it has been a long road back from the slug I was to where I am now. I have to get up 30min earlier because I won't stop looking at my self in the mirror! So looking through this thread and seeing some of the names in the replies, I'll order this stack for my cut on their word alone and you don't have to make me a winner of the lottery.....But you would be very cool in by book if you did!!!! And thanks for the help to all of you guys on here!
05-12-2008, 12:54 PM
I live in indonesia, so probably wont get anything from this lottery.
first taking AP at Jan 2008.
I will be honest, I dont feel pump like you all said. I dont feel my strength gone through. I do feel hypo for the first bootle, I like the hypo because its a sign AP worked. (never feel anything from supplements)
now, I'm at 4th bootle.. why I still use it? because my body changed a LOT..
for me AP with moderate to hi carbs = bulking, and
AP with low carbs = fatloss product.. wow..
for me, there is no supplement that can beat AP..
maybe you need a stim or even PH or steroids, but if you want to building your body, AP should be a staple..
Dont like it for the pump or you can cheat with it.. like it because it can make your body into a better one.

That I think is the most beautiful part, that you can acheive the results of a CKD while still taking in carbs, and not needing to add copious amounts of cardio.Originally Posted by B5150

I am generally carb sensitive and can't stand the bloating I get from them AP takes care of it so I can enjoy all the carbs I want and not have the bloated disgusting feeling I use to get after a big carb meal. I am in contest prep mode now the show is on June 7th. I am for sure using Pslin for my carb load and would love to through in some AP to tip the scale even more in my faver. It will help me stay lean and shredded all summer and still be able to add all the muscle I can. Maybe throughing it a bit more Recreate to help the process and I would love to get my Fiancee on it also to shed a few pounds so she will be more likely to join me at the beach.
You hear of bodybuilders using inslin for the food transport and gaining muscle but who needs inslin when you have AP and Pslin and they won't put you into a coma or screw up your own bodys production of inslin and possibly make you a diabetic for the rest of your life. I suppose that would be considered a plus times 100 for AnabolicPump and Pslin.
05-12-2008, 01:16 PM
I tried it in January and I've been hooked ever since. Carbs and I don't typically agree with each other, and I've always struggled with staying lean in the mid-section. AP to the rescue. It's allowed me to lean up in my mid-section without having to change anything in my diet. That, along with fuller denser muscles...AP is a beautiful thing :chick:

Anabolic Pump and Smoking Joints
Now that I'm pushing 40, my joints (especially the tendons in my knees and shoulders) are experiencing less lubrication, producing more friction, and "smoking" in the gym. Yes, I'm taking Super Cissus RX, consuming plenty of essential fatty acids, and I've even experimented with OraTropin-1. But even with all of that, there's been a hitch in the healing of my joints.
What's the hitch? Well, it's tied to another problem that I attribute to being middle-aged, namely, the fact that it's more and more difficult to keep my bodyfat levels in check. And, for me, this has meant eating less and less carbohydrates.
Of course, carbohydrates are essential for the manufacturing of new cells that form connective tissues, and they play an important role in optimizing the levels of key hormones that affect joint health. In short, severely restricting carbohydrates isn't ideal for someone like me who suffers from tedonitis and ligament damage.
This has left me in a catch-22: I can either consume more carbohydrates to the benefit of my joints and the detriment of my waist, or I can restrict carbohydrate intake to stay lean and mean while my joints keep barking. I've never been able to escape this dilemma--until recently!
Iíve been using Anabolic Pump for about 14 months now, consuming 30-50 grams of high-quality complex carbohydrates with each dose. Since starting Anabolic Pump, my joints are taking things easier and my waist is actually getting harder! USPLabs has tossed my catch-22 to the curb!
Perhaps there are others here with a situation similar to mine, battling creaky joints with a carb-sensitive metabolism. Or maybe someone here is injured, trying to stay lean while inactively waiting for things to heal, and not thinking much about anabolic supplements until regular training can resume. If either situation is yours, Anabolic Pump might be just the ticket you need.

It never fails. I sit there for a few extra moments and look at the definition in my quads. At this point they are cold and not worked for many days already.
The scale is now moving upward slightly but literally all of my weight is transforming before my eyes.
Probably TMI but I just get so excited when at 3 weeks from 43yo I have found something that works this way and so well...without even trying.
05-12-2008, 05:47 PM
Together, the two most effective supps that I've used to date to start shredding body fat. I've been using AP for a little over 60 days now and plan on making it a staple in my supp regimen from now on. I'm 34 and haven't seen my abs since high school, but now they are coming through nicely; I also have that cut between my delts and bi's/tri's that has never been there. To say that I'm pleased would not be giving USPLabs any justice. I couldn't recommend this combo to enough people.
05-12-2008, 06:16 PM
I had a nice run of P-Slin and AP several months back. I didn't like it the first time (AP), but there were other factors that MAY have been in play at the time so USP Labs gave me the tools to give it another shot and sent me the combo. They're a VERY stand-up company and when I used it with a decent amount of carbs, the AP really helped a lot with fullness and keeping the carbs from becoming fat.
I'm VERY sensetive to insulin/glucose management supps and I didn't feel lethargic on AP when I followed the directions.
Freedom means nothing here.

i like anabolic pump because there is no bull**** or guess work but pure science. It is indeed a innovative and GREAT theory to maximize the activation of GLUT4. However while many supplements do have flashy theories with BIG words like its a science fiction novel(u know what im talking abt ), AP puts the theory into RESULTS. THe pump u feel isn't just vasodilation from nitric oxide products, it is ur muscles getting JACKED with glycogen. However while shoving ur muscles full of glycogen giving u AWESOME energy, it also helps carb sensitive folks like me to freely incorporate carbs into our meals , getting a pump from eating wholemale pasta with chicken breast COME ON! It is possibly one of the best supplements on the market as it utilizes good science to not only make us BIGGER but HEALTHIER (no side effects) as compared to PHs, AIs, Test boosters, Ephedra and etc

I've taken quite a few bottles of AP since it first came out.
I really like it for non-pre WO meals, while I use P'slin for pre-WO's.
I like AP because I can add copious amounts of carbohydrates to meals and not feel sluggish/tired/bloated or flat out fat.
Good example today - forgot my AP bottle at home. Went to lunch with some guys from work at a Lebanese place. Had a chicken shwarma sandwich with hummus.
After a piece of the whole wheat pita bread - I began to feel pretty drowsy. Needed more caffeine than normal to make it through work (and am still a bit tired).
If I had taken AP - I'm sure I would have felt fine after lunch.
AP seems to bring out vascularity when I do use it pre-WO. It def. gives me pumps (not as much as P'slin - but still good).
I love the nutrient partitioning effects also. I can eat more carbs over a long period while on AP and not gain an appreciable amount of fat.
The other aspect I like is that I don't get a really bad hypo feeling on AP if I don't eat in time. This is why I use AP for non-pre WO meals. Since I may end up at an establishment eating - may take longer to get the food out. I don't end up nearly passing out - as I do with P'slin.
In effect - I think AP is more versatile. I HAVE to use P'Slin when I can absolutely control every detail of the next meal (time, carbs, carb type even).

Hmm. Hadn't thought of that.
I had the wrap - a ton of chicken in a whole pita bread. And another half piece of the pita. Started on a second but realized I should stop.
Edit - was a ton of carbs. Guessing maybe 40 or 50 grams just in the wrap itself.
