4/27/12 Tip of the Day! (ill do these atleast every couple of days, remember quality is what I want to give you guys!)
*Want the BEST possible pump every training session?
The pump?! What benefits does a pump even offer?! I thought its pointless!!!
-Increase Protein Synthesis
-Increase Glycogen Synthesis
-Glut 4 benefits
-Growth Hormone secretion
-Fascia Stretch (for long term hypertrophy)
-VEGF benefits (vascular endothilial growth factor) (basically the veign creating hormone)
-The pump feels damn good! Arnold was right, the pump feels just as good as shootin' your load! haha!
How can you increase your chances of getting a maximum pump? Here's a couple simple steps!
1)Stay Anabolic (if your natural, take a rest day before and after every session, if you can take 2 days off before and after every session in my that would mentally drive people insane, but it would literally set every workout out to ensure you are fully recovered before going back in the gym, keeping your endocrine system / cns / adrenal glands in check is one of my keys for maximum hypertrophy!) (ensure your body has the proper amount of protein/carbs/fats) (getting enough sleep) (keeping stress under control, remember....CORTISOL IS A PUMP KILLER!!)
2)Increase your potassium/sodium/water intake! (cell volumization benefits in thsi department BIG TIME!)
Heres my Pre workout to your pump!
*1.5 hours Pre
-Lean Protein Source of your choice
-Large White or Red Potato
-Large Green Salad
-GDA / Nutrient Partioner of your choice
*10 mins Pre

-Fast Carb (gatorade / ....etc...)
-Ensure your body is saturated with creatine already
I mean who doesn't love an arm pump?
