  4. Before this log kicks off I just want to clarify one thing. MA-PUMP was made for one purpose ONLY--to provide the best pumps and overall muscle volumization possible.

    It is not an endurance, performance, or recovery product. The description is VERY clear regarding what the product was made for. If you look at the ingredient profile, you can see that all the ingredients target the pump, muscle volumization or fullness through one or more mechanisms. That was the ONLY criteria employed when deciding which compounds would be selected for MA-PUMP.

    Now, some of the ingredients within the product have been clinically proven to do other things, such as increase strength (ex. betaine, creatine), increase muscular endurance (ex. nitrates), improve amino acid uptake (ex. citrulline) and other things...but this is NOT the product's primary purpose. They are just side benefits--not the goal of the product.

    Therefore, when providing feedback on MA-PUMP it is completely fine to mention any non-pump benefits you feel the product provides, but when you provide you final judgment regarding its "performance", please make sure to judge it on those things it was designed for--pump/muscle volumization. After all, that is the only reason I made it.

    Unfortunately, it's pretty much impossible to make a pre-workout product that is best-in-class in every category. Doing so would require a production cost of around $100 and a giant serving size...LOL. This is why the "holistic" pre-workouts do a lot of different things, but none of those things are done at a very high level (with the exception of stims, as it doesn't cost much to load a product up with stims). This is because it just isn't possible, from a cost standpoint, to make a pre-workout that is "best-in-class" in every single category. For that reason I chose to focus on only one function--the pump/volumization--and do it better than any other product.

    Thanks for the log, The Solution.

  5. Oh, one more thing. MA-PUMP is a two-scoop product. I know on the website it says 1 scoop, but that was an error that needs to be corrected. We were originally going to use one scoop, but the scoop was too big (nearly 35 grams), which made it to hard to scoop all the powder out of the bottom of the bottle...so we had to use a smaller scoop and make it a 2 scoop serving size. You will see that it says two 2 scoops on the label when you receive the product.

    The ingredients cross over, which I will mark up in my write-up and initial review, but the characteristics of the ingredient profile do provide more then just a spectacular pump. Time will soon tell how I respond. Everything on paper is great, but lets see how it responds to me. Not everyone responds to a clinically dosed product. Just goes to show you how supplements can vary from person to person.

    Can't wait to crack this and get you some 100% honest feedback.

    Oh yes, you're absolutely right. They do cross over. I just wanted to clarify that the product was formulated for only one primary purpose, so people wouldn't think that it is "failing" in certain areas that it was never intended to assist with, such as increased focus, energy, etc.

    You know this, but those who haven't yet heard of the product might think it is like most of the other "holistic" pre-workout products on the market, which are designed to perform moderately in a bunch of different areas, unlike MA-PUMP which was designed to perform "best-in'class" in one major area--PUMPS.

    MA Pump Non-Stim Pre-Workout


    Taste

    Black Cherry Lemonade – This flavor is extremely refreshing. The black cherry is the initial taste, which is not overly sweet. The flavoring goes hand in hand with the lemonade, which is bold. Both flavors go well together and neither one of them overpower each other. The best part about this is you would think with both flavors always being known for being tart and sweet that is not what you get. Instead this refreshing flavor is awesome to sip on and has a very long lasting aftertaste. Even with a very loaded formula the flavoring would be hard to dial in, but MA Labs did just that.



    Mixability
    The serving size is 33.25g (2 Scoops). Sometimes larger serving sizes will have trouble mixing especially with raw’s that doesn’t mix with ease. I usually mix my pre-workout and intra-workout beverages the night before, so in the morning when I head out to train they are cold and dissolved. The power is extremely clumpy (Almost the entire tub).There was a bit of foam and some floating particles when shaking the product up, but once it settles there was not a lot sitting at the bottom of the shaker cup, or any clumps to notice. It may not be the thinnest and easiest mixing powder, but give it some time and it will settle.


    Formula


    Per 2 Scoops / 1 Serving:

    8g Citrulline Malate (Pump, Prevent lactic acid build up)
    1g Nitrosigine (increase nitric oxide)
    250mg Capros (Increase NO / Performance)
    500mg Vitamin C (Prevent nitrate tolerance build up)
    1.5 Sodium Nitrate (Pump, Performance, Endurance)
    5g Hydromax (Pump)
    4g Creatine Mono (Endurnace, Performance, Strength)
    3g Betaine (Performance / Endurance)
    2g Taurine (Muscle Volumizer)

    On paper this is one hell of a non-stim pre-workout product. You are getting full doses of every single ingredient to enhance pumps, performance, and endurance in the gym. Each serving size is massive, but I would rather get full doses of everything instead of half doses and double scooping a product. MA Labs put together a very well pre-workout product for those who don’t dwell off stimulants.

    Cost
    $56.99 for 20 Servings. If you get a rep code I think you can get around 20% off which makes the product around $44-45. You are paying a bit over $2 a serving, but if you factor how much those raws cost in those doses it is about what you would pay to double scoop and underdosed non-stim preworkout. All in all you get what you pay for. Yes it may be hefty, but MA Labs is not shortchanging you on the ingredient profile. Most people chase flavoring and buy products that are underdosed, but this is a totally different beast. Performance and legit doses are something I would pay for over flavoring.

  15. In for this! Formula looks absolutely amazing!

  16. Subbed fam

    The clumping is from the hydromax (glycerol powder). I had a pre that had a hefty dose (4g) and it did the same thing.

    Not always the root cause.
    Dymatize Pre was full like a rock due to the nitrosigine. Citrulline is also a cause for clumping (as seen in various pre-workouts over the years). All 3 could be the synergistic reason for the massive clumping. Needless to say the entire tub is almost one big clump of powder. I had to almost pull out a chisel to break it up.

    First workout is tomorrow. Got backtracked the last 2 days not being able to workout due to family emergency (Grandma has cancer), and also working double shifts. Ill get back to the grind tomorrow.

    This is with 0 food in me, no carbs, and no sodium
    I want to see how much different it is once i throw all those in the mix and don't train fasted.





    Overall I have trained fasted twice now with MA Pump, while the pumps are nothing mindblowing (as to be expected when fasted), but they are noted. Even on your first exercise and warm up sets you can feel the muscles get warm and hard fast. I have a feeling once I get some carbs in me pre/intra workout there will be a massive difference to note and see via pictures.

    Dosing has been 2 scoops pre-workout, and nothing else in the mix. Thats it. I do take some BCAA's peri-workout, but have not used any pre/intra workout carbs yet (HBCD or food). These are more along the lines of ... Before pics.. to see the difference.
