I've got to admit that before a friend gave me some Recreate Feedback thread----Let the games begin! ) Unfortunately when I ran out, I couldn't get either of the two products again, so I decided to look into what else USP makes that might work for me. I stumbled upon , and the product description + my love of carbs convinced me this was the right choice, so I ordered two bottles.and the Test-Booster by USP I had never even heard of them. I ran those two for a month, and absolutely loved the results. (I've posted my experiences before, but here's a link
I know to do my research before jumping into a product, and so I made sure I knew exactly what AP was, how it works and how best to take it. I read up on it, and after a few days I found my sweet spot of 60g Complex Carbs and about 20g Simple Carbs (Fruits, Berries etc). Once I got the proper carb ratios down the results couldn't have come quicker. I noticed I was getting much more energy from my meals; sure I had upped the carbs a bit but my pre-workout Bagel and Banana seemed to power me through my workouts! I also found I had more in the gym, probably due from eating more carbs without feeling bloated. I guess that for me is the food pump, because I don't think I got any more vascular.
Comparing Recreate to AP is slightly different, but I managed to actually lose a little bit of fat on both. The big difference is with AP I was eating more of the carbs I enjoyed, so for me the AP is sort of my crutch; it helps me while still enjoying the foods I love, which is what it's all about for me. I'm definitely impressed with both of them solo, and so put together this combo would be pretty unbeatable I'd say! If I had more money I'd probably stack on some and PSlin, but I think this 1-2 combo is all one needs for a perfect lean bulk.
AP is probably one of my favorite supplements so far! I am just starting my second bottle. The results were much more noticeable on this bottle as I am learning how long I need to wait before eating after I take AP. I get good pumps and can work out longer and heavier with AP! Oh and the veins popping out is really cool too! Have not tried Recreate yet, but I am looking at trying that or the Super Cissus next! Can not wait to see what the future holds! USP has put the back into my workouts!
Just added P-Slin and AP to my regimen. All GREAT things from the first dose of each! I really, really love these two products and P-Slin did enable me to perform the best workout I can remember doing... Atleast the best workout in a VERY long time. I'm using carbs like gluten-free rice cakes and sugar-free jelly, and Ezekiel bread and sugar-free jelly sandwiches and it's AWESOME!
edit: Oh, and I don't really care for supps that tinker with insulin, etc... I get tired and lethargic with ALA, R-ALA, Na-R-ALA, etc. and with the AP and P-Slin, I make sure to FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS VERBATIM so there's no doubt in my mind I'm screwing it up, and the stuff is bomb! I actually get energized!

I like the AP simply because of my rubbish genetic pre-disposition to carbs. AP allows me to consume more carbs giving me more energy and removing the worry of piling on fat.
I've been using Ap since it was yellow gold and I was a beta tester (yes I know they are different products but you get the point). Anyway I have people ask me constantly about what supplements to take how to train ect ect. and for several years now I've been saying the same thing. "USP labs anabolic pump" is the best product on the market. Everyone in my local vitamin shoppe can attest that for several years I have been asking when are they going to get it? Why don't they carry it? And finally when they said they where going to carry it I would ask "WELL WHERE IS IT!" I have to say that 99% of the people I reccomend it to notice two things. One is they gain about 3/4 to 1/2 and inch on their arms and lose close to an inch off their wastes. Two is they are pumped almost 24/7 and have insane energy in the gym. Bottom line is it works very well, and 9 times out of 10 if it doesn't then you don't know how to eat or train.
After studying myself for a long time I have come to the conclusion that the endo part of my meso-endo due to carb sensitivity. When I say sensitivity, I mean sensitive to in a way that does not allocate carbs to muscle tissue.
Many products I have found do a reasonable job of helping get the GLUTs working for me, but AP is the best at it (I am doing P-slin right now which is a waste of money compared to AP).
I still eat a mostly carb-less diet, however, I eat a large serving of "slow" carbs before my workout, and a large serving of slow and fast carbs after. I have gained muscle since I have been low-carbing for years and my muscles are finally getting some glycogen to grow with.
That is not a big deal though...I grow muscle easily. The big deal is that I can eat carbs and have low body-fat. I use AP with glucophase (another good product), and think it is one of the most potent repartitioning stacks available...including the dark side. After all we all know that insulin is one of if not THE most important hormone in bodybuilding, and learning how to manipulate it is key.
Now here is how much I like AP...I don't want free AP. That's right, none. I want you to give my free bottle to an endo-meso for whom low carb works well and is unable to have carbs and abs at the same time. Give them "my" bottle 'cause it will change their life.
With Anabolic Pump, I make Carbs my B I T C H!.
Not an entry, just a statement. I already entered with a different post.
I got my 1st bottle and am interested to see how it works.
Is it useless to take without the intake of carbs 15 minutes later?
Anabolic Pump has changed my life!
At first I thought I was a non-responder, but after a week of no results I finally felt the pump and started gaining some extra muscle. Being previously cut I could not attest to losing fat, but I certainly was able to eat a wicked amount of carbs and never feel bloated or gain any weight. My muscles felt much fuller and people around me were starting to comment on my more built figure.
In a month I was in love with AP. I am on my second bottle (no cycles!!!) and still feel the pump and still notice the increase in my gains. AP to me is as important as any protein or multi-vitamin, it essentially enhances the way my body treats carbs, turning them from simple energy to visible gains and energy throughout the day.
AP is a staple supplement.
I have been using Anabolic Pump (and P-Slin) on a daily basis since January 2008. Although I have cycled a few other supplements and stacks during that period of time, I have used Anabolic Pump (and P-Slin) without interruption.
In what follows, I will try to focus briefly on why I like Anabolic Pump.
For me, Anabolic Pump is a truly unique natural non-hormonal anabolic with versatile properties that range from superior nutrient partitioning to potent adaptogenic and antioxidant benefits. Its remarkable ability to demonstrate unparalleled dominance as a “Nutrient Partitioning Intensifier” or an “Accelerated Nutrient Partitioning Potentiator” justifies its best-in-class status in its unique category.
Superior Nutrient Uptake and Potentiation of Positive Effects of Insulin in Skeletal Muscle Cells
I find Anabolic Pump demonstrates significant effectiveness at improved glucose uptake and amino-acid metabolism. I always ensure I add proteins to my carbohydrate intake after consuming Anabolic Pump. The effects are not just easily noticeable but significant. The optimized uptake of nutrients rapidly leads to an increase in the volume of muscle cells, further enhancing the shuttling of nutrients into skeletal cells. I emphasize nutrients, as opposed to just carbohydrates, because Anabolic Pump, by potentiating the positive effects of insulin, dramatically improves amino-acid (and creatine) transport, as well. As is well-known, insulin is the body’s most anabolic hormone, even more anabolic than testosterone. Insulin is known to be a potent amino acid and creatine transporter, apart from being a non-discriminating glucose disposal agent. By mimicking insulin, Anabolic Pump dramatically improves insulin sensitivity, optimizes amino-acid and creatine uptake, and enhances phosphocreatine-ATP synthesis, ultimately leading to truly “anabolic and vascular pumps” that trigger cellular repair and growth. This underlines the difference between Anabolic Pump and products that deliver nitric-oxide-based vasodilation. While this type of nitric-oxide-based vasodilation is useful for improved nutrient transportation to skeletal muscle, the “pumps” from Anabolic Pump are different because they trigger an anabolic stimulus for growth by exploiting the metabolism of already-available macronutrients, directly and immediately contributing to protein synthesis, nitrogen retention, and hypertrophy.
After taking Anabolic Pump daily for close to half a year, one can legitimately document one of its truly impressive strengths: Permitting one to increase consumption of proteins and carbohydrates while improving the lean-mass-to-total weight ratio! And that without having to workout daily! This alone makes the product worth every cent for me!
Improving Lipid Profile, Stimulating Lipolysis, and Blocking Triglyceride Uptake in Fat Cells
These are, again, well-known outcomes of Anabolic Pump supplementation. In simple terms, they are flip-sides of Anabolic Pump’s impressive preferential nutrient-partitioning pathway in non-adipose tissue. Proper nutrient partitioning is crucial. As we know, any malfunctioning here may produce metabolic disorders, as abnormalities in biochemical signalling result. Such disorders may include insulin resistance, obesity, chronic fatigue syndrome, and so on. Due to the existence of a minimal metabolic transformation between carbohydrates and fats, the more fats that is burnt, the less that can be stored, and vice versa. The same holds true for carbohydrates, too. Via optimized preferential nutrient partitioning, Anabolic Pump helps to potentiate fat oxidation and improved glucose metabolism.
One possibly neglected cool benefit of Anabolic Pump is that, by helping to regulate levels of blood sugar and insulin in the blood, Anabolic Pump helps stabilize cravings for sweets and binge-eating, leading to better food choices and improved blood sugar and insulin levels. This has a hormonal impact. By helping the management of sugar cravings, Anabolic Pump may help to raise dopamine and serotonin levels, promoting feelings of well-being. Furthermore, given the inverse relationship between dopamine and prolactin, by supporting an elevation in dopamine levels, Anabolic Pump may promote reductions in prolactin. As increased dopamine and decreased prolactin levels are both triggers for increased testosterone, Anabolic Pump may also support higher testosterone synthesis, leading to an improvement in the testosterone:cortisol ratio. This might suggest a relevance for Anabolic Pump in post-cycle therapy! Just my two cents!
Anabolic Pump is one of the few supplements I intend to take long-term on a daily basis. As it works completely independently of insulin, and as its effects do not diminish over time, because no receptors become desensitized, cycling is neither necessary nor mandatory. This is in spite of the fact that a certain compound in Anabolic Pump has been shown to have a “memory effect”, whereby the results continue for a short while after cessation of supplementation. In any case, having fully integrated Anabolic Pump successfully into my daily ritual, cycling is not an option, as long as I can continue to afford it.

Strat did it again
Don't miss out on the next deal:
I won't do any less than 40 carbs... 50 is good... 60-80 is perfect for post-workout for me. Complex carbs of course.

So, I figured i post again...lol.
Day 16, nausea, running to the bathroom, all that subsided by end of last week. Appetite suppression has started to kick in. Strangely enough i am up 7 pounds since start. Amazing. I think I may have gained a tad of fat, but I know my arms are taking most the gain.
Vascularity has kicked in. I can see them all under the skin on shoulders, chest, and upper arms.
Sleep is phenomenal. Still sleeping like a baby for a good 6 - 7 hours and feel well rested.
Strength is way up at the gym. Recovery time between sets has really shortened my workouts which is good because I am pretty busy.
Thermogenic effects from recreate has kicked in full. I am sweating a lot more than I was a week ago.
Overall, it feels really good.
so yep, that is my update and another reason to use AP. Bigger and stronger in two weeks, and oh yeah, I CAN EAT. I am not sitting here starving myself to lose the fat...I just pop some pills, eat some food, lift some weights, and it is allllll good.
i done an AP/P-slin stack earlier this year.Im a carb sensitive person...my maintenance is around 150-200gms per day,with this stack i upped my carbs to 400 and sometimes 450gms of carbs per day.I loved it,i gained a solid 3-4lbs and also lost around 3lbs of fat in 30 days,my strength went up and the pumps were good! Im currently using p-slin as part of a PCT im 2 weeks in and im actually enjoying the PCT more than i did my cycle,i have had better strength gains on the p-slin than the crap cycle i did....if anyone wants to know what i ran PM me.If anyone is interested in reading my log on AP/P-slin PM me for a link.
I know what you're all thinking "strong first post" Well,ive been on another board for around a year and their server has been down for a few days,so their loss is AM's gain
