First off, I will like to thank Mr.Dead and ErgoGenix for providing me with the opportunity to log not one, but two products. These are ErgoPump and ErgoShred. I will be stacking these together. I will take ErgoShred in the morning and later in the day. ErgoPump will be taken 20-30 minutes before a workout on on days and mid-afternoon on off days.
My workout routine is based off 5/3/1, but is varied to a creation that I feel is best suited for me. If wanted I can post it in its entirety or let it develop on here as I post. On some off days from the gym, I normally do 15-30 minutes of core or cardio work. My diet is at maintenance or slightly above since I am at a great weight of 195. I just am looking to turn gradually 195 at 13.20% ( tested at bodpod) to 195 at about 10%.
I can post pictures if wanted. I can log anywhere from one day to seven days a week. Do not be afraid to ask questions about my experiences with these products through this log or PMs. I am going to give my best effort in logging these products and will give an honest review as I go and final review for both products at the end.
Now I just have to wait for the products to come in the mail. Boy, aren't I pumped to get shredded.
ErgoShred's Bio courtesy of ERGOSHRED
rgoShred ™ is the latest ErgoGenix offering in the fat burning category. Due to its innovative and cutting edge design, ErgoShred is unlike any other product on the market, making it a revolutionary product in the oversaturated fat burning category. ErgoShred will promote fat loss, suppress appetite, increase endurance, and provide long lasting energy —all without affecting your athletic performance.
Through the combination of Quercetin, Caffeine, N-Methyltyramine (NMT), and Zingerone at effective doses, ErgoShred exploits many different metabolic pathways in synergy. Caffeine can induce lipolysis, increase performance by delaying fatigue, and increase pain threshold. Quercetin may boost metabolism, inhibit cortisol production, boost stamina, and potentiate fat loss by increasing the rate of lipolysis induced by caffeine. Zingerone, like Quercetin, also acts to accelerate the rate of lipolysis induced by Caffeine.
In addition to the rate of Caffeine induced lipolysis being increased by Quercetin and Zingerone, NMT and Zingerone both promote fat loss by preventing fat storage, while still allowing for clean and anxiety free energy.
Another ingredient in ErgoShred, B-Phenylethylamine HCl, also provides clean, jitter-free energy, and has been linked to an elevation in mood, giving you long lasting, feel good focus.
ErgoShred also contains the rare esterified carnitine Propionyl-L-Carnitine (PLCAR). The inclusion of PLCAR in ErgoShred can improve cardiac function by protecting tissues from oxidative stress, enhance anaerobic work capacity, and can reduce bodyweight via stimulation of the carnitine palmitoyltransferase pathway.
ErgoShred also contains a blend of patented Capsimax ® and Bioperine ®. Capsimax contains an extract of capsicum that does not cause the feelings of heartburn people have come to associate with other capsicum products, while still providing an optimal level of capsaicinoids, while Bioperine on the other hand improves nutrient absorption, leading to an increase in the absorption of the ingredients within ErgoShred. Not only will ErgoShred lead to fat loss, but through the incorporation of Capsimax in its formula, it will allow you to burn more calories both during AND after exercise, supressing your appetite, increase thermogenesis by increasing energy expenditure, and improve body composition by lowering levels of body fat. Capsimax will also lead to an increase in oxygen uptake while lowering levels of perceived exertion, so you not only work harder, but you also feel less tired.

ErgoPump's bio courtesy of ERGOPUMP NMT
ERGOPUMP NMT™ is ErgoGenix’s entry in the pre-workout performance category. Athletes of all types will benefit from ERGOPUMP NMT’s Energy & Muscle Amplification formula. ERGOPUMP NMT works to enhance Energy, Focus and Performance. This scientifically designed, cutting-edge formula works to augment blood flow by promoting nitric oxide production, as well as improving cognitive function.
ERGOPUMP NMT’s Vasodilatory Blend produces enhanced Nitric Oxide production, due to the inclusion of L-arginine Alpha ketoglutarate, Citrulline Malate and creatine monohydrate. Citrulline Malate has also been shown to increase aerobic performance. Finally, enhanced muscle protein synthesis is delivered by the addition of Grape Seed Extract.
ERGOPUMP NMT’s Neural Potentiation Blend produces Amazing Energy & Focus via the combination of caffeine and n-methyltyramine.
ERGOPUMP NMT’s Fatigue Resistance Blend contains Creatine Citrate, which has been shown to help maintain intramuscular energy stores. In addition, Dextrose is included to be available as a form of glucose to enter glycolysis in anaerobic and aerobic metabolism.
Reduce pre-workout fatigue with a sustained boost in energy
Augments short- and long-term energy stores for explosive power and prolonged endurance
Increased blood flow to working muscles and constantly supplies them with the needed substrates oxygen, phosphocreatine, and glucose
Enhanced alertness and energy will assist in a strong mind and body relationship for even the toughest workouts
Recover quickly with simple carbohydrates and antioxidants, ensuring back-to-back training days will not be hindered
Stimulates ideal conditions for muscle contractility, reducing evidence of fatigue-related force deficits
Promotes muscular aerobic and anaerobic capacity for maximal results under any training or competition conditions
Promotes optimal body composition from enhanced free-fatty acid utilization and glycogen sparing; burn more fat while building muscle
Enhance blood flow where you need it the most (muscles), assisting in byproduct removal and energy and oxygen delivery
