That's what it is. More blood flow in muscles, you feel bigger, pumped.

wow, but a lower back pump that is painful??? i guess ive never been there, unless it feels like a backache... my 1st two times taking Creethyl Thunder i felt huge pumps like a "mutant" but it has worn off now. Going to do a Phera cycle in about 1 1/2 so i should feel these "painful pumps"?

Why do supps such as CEE or SD target the lower back, is that just a really sensative area? I have to load up on Taurine when I take CEE.

While I have no scientific reason here is my explanation: The body part used the most at all times is probably the lower back. It really doesn't target the muscle its just that the lower back is constantly recruited to stablize the torso and body. Walking also very much recuits the lower back muscles, hence why the right shoes can minimize lower back pain. So the lower back gets "pumped" as if it were doing a very high rep workout. The pumps just get painful when AAS or CEE is introduced, hence the painful lower back pumps. Right or wrong, thats the best conclusion I have come to. Maybe someone else will chime in with a good scientific reason.Originally Posted by stxnas

From my understand, it's not a lower back "pump" on SD or PP. It's kidney pain...

I don't know if your joking, but I have had kidney pain and it was not the same thing. It was very much a pump, like I was doing high rep deadlifts, or something, all day long.Originally Posted by theshocker21

Lower back muscles are constantly in motion, so to speak and these PH's cause a worked muscle to get filled with blood and 'pumped' Just think when your arm is swollen after a workout and you lose the flexability you had prior. Same with the lower back.

Yeah, kidney pain usuallygets confused with prostate pain . Keep the oral supps spread out over the days and drink plenty of water. If you're unsure then you should get some blood work done.
Kidney pain is way different and stones or infection are usually present.
severe pain on one side of the body near the lower ribs, abdomen, back, or groin, fever, chills with shaking, and nausea and vomiting.
Nephrolithiasis is the presence of a hard mass (or stone) in the kidney. Kidney stones may be made up of a variety of chemicals, with the most common one being calcium. Kidney stones occur more frequently in men than women and more frequently in Caucasians than in African Americans. The more common age of occurrence is between 20-40 years of age. They are more likely to occur to a person with a family history of kidney stones, and to a person after a first occurrence. The symptoms are: sharp, "spasm like" pain in the back, side, lower abdomen or groin. Nausea and vomiting may also be present.
