Attn:All people that have had the infamous back pumps
I have searched and understand the potassium, taurine, water remedies for back pumps, but I have never seen anyone actually describe the pumps/cramp. I just wanted to make sure that is what I have and nothing more.
Mine are very low on the back, below the belt line and only on the right side. The actual pain area is pretty small, maybe the circumference of a silver dollar or a bit bigger and it seems to be knotted up.
Does this sound about right?
Also I posted this in steroids bc I know a lot of people have gotten them from prohormones and such, but I haven't used anything hormonal at all in like 2 years, which also causes some concern.

Mine can be upper or lower but they seem to span the whole right to left section. It almost feels like a painful constant tightening.

I never experienced back pumps on PP. Is it AX's PP, or a clone?

Circumfrance of a silver dollar? Definatley not what I expereince. If I do heavy deadlifting my entire lower back feels tight before I'm done warming up.lol By the time I'm done with my first exercise my lower back is really uncomfortable. It then last for about 15 minutes after the workout is done. So the duration for me is about an hour of discomfort.lol

Calf pumps are the worst. They're the reason I won't cycle anymore. I started boxing and anyone who boxes knows that almost all your movement in the ring is calf driven.
Combine that with methyl calf pumps and you're pretty much hamstrung for 4 weeks.

I had back pumps when I was havoc, and it was around the belt region. I just hope you do not get the ones that wake you up in the middle of the night, those are the worst for me.

i had some nasty back pumps with methyl masterdrol (superdrol) at 20-30mg. it was just an insane 24-7 back pain. but to the above comment about muscle tightness...they were always even more unbearable on leg and back days

I got really bad back pumps on Superdrol that were about 10 times worse when I sat down. When I stood up they would go away.

I got back pumps on PP but only once or twice during the second week after i had worked back. It felt like i had repped out straight leg deadlifts or normal deadlifts with light weight until my lower back was killed. Thankfully i only got it a couple times and i didn't even use taurine.
if you drink plenty of water, and use taurine and potassium you shouldnt have much problems

I had some nasty back pumps on Epi once I upped the dosage from 30-40
Ahh it was horrible. Taurine can only do so much haha

All of you seem to be getting them from diff. prohormones, but i'm not taking anything and i'm getting them. They come and go seemingly at random too. Makes me wonder whats going on..

Hows the bloodwork? Any yellow to the eyes or skin?
Couldnt hurt to go into see a Doc for a physical(dont tell him doc I did stuff and now my back hurts), just get a check up and routine bloodworkup.

I would get it checked out, but honestly its probably nothing. Heavy training will give you aches and pains. My back is always hurting in a different way, and i'll freak out and think its my kidneys or something and get blood work... The doc always attributes it to muscle pain. I've started to attribute all the aches and pains to the heavy weights and demands us bodybuilders put on our bodies. Good luck w/ it. - HTTC

back pumps? they are not real just be yourself and sleep if it takes two nights of some kinda pm sinus then do it. you are just over thinking the problem if they get bigger and i mean much bigger in like a week or two see a doc.

What a lot of you guys are describing sounds like more than pumps...more like cramping. I'll give the benefit of the doubt that there IS some sort of condition called a "back pump/calf pump"...but:
what is it?
what is the mechanism from steroid to pump?
how is it different from a pump in the gym or a "cramp"?

While we're on the topic, are there any roids that would cause me to lean up, maybe put on a little mass and not give me horrendous calf pumps on long distance runs?
I was thinking Propadrol, Furaguno or maybe even 3-AD. Only problem is I can't find much information on Furaguno or Propadrol.

As far as the difference, I would say its not as bad as a real cramp, which can almost cause you to not be able to move, but its much worse than a pump, as it is actually pretty painful, though you can still move around, it just hurts.
