Ok thanks. But for future explination I've heard that Arginine is no longer beleived to raise N.O in the body it was explained to me that it spikes insulin which then triggers N.O

Alot of hype behind these NO boosters. More "feel" then results I suspect..

Oh I kno about the NO hype I dropped all preworkouts after a while I like the arginines vascularity tho and recently I picked up pre-surge cuz it was given to me and I like it.

Also, Anabolic Pump works independent from insulin. Allowing the body to produce less as a result of supplementation of AP. Most insulin managing products base their formulas that work in correlation with insulin, possibly causing issues with the way insulin is secreted or utilized by the body.
Arginine as a stand alone is questionable as I see it, you may notice more benefit from a product that combines arginine with other ingredients that compliment its availability.

But I'm a little unclear now again because u called it questionable. Will arginine as a stand alone affect my AP?

In my opinion no, feel free to consume both without issue.

I myself wasted a good deal of time constantly thinking that I was just 1 miracle supplement away from achieving my goal, but, looking back on everything, I realize that I should have just been more meticulous about my training and diet.

I will use the Anabolic Pump vs R lipoic acid scenario. Although I am not promoting or negating the positive effects of either product, I am simply illustrating the contrast in the two and how they perform in specific scenarios.
Anabolic Pump increases GLUT-4, a glucose disposing transport protein, resulting in less insulin being secreted via the pancreas. Anabolic pump does not require insulin, as is the case with R Lipic acid, which may directly influence insulin levels to some degree.
I think it is important to clarify the stimulus of Glut 4 activation as it pertains to Anabolic Pump and R Lipoic. Glut- 4 can be prompted by exercise, insulin as in the case of R Lipoic acid, or the compounds in Anabolic Pump. Now, Anabolic Pump does not require exercise or insulin to stimulate Glut- 4. R lipoic, requires the activation of insulin receptors to set in motion Glut-4 activity. Once more, the independence of Anabolic Pump to insulin makes it a superior choice in disposing glucose in my opinion.
Anabolic Pump has a half life of 4-6 hours, this combined with the typical AP dosing, may sustain a constant activation of Glut-4 activity. In the case of R Lipoic acid where insulin initiates Glut-4 activity, the response is shorter and requires a rapid disposing of the glucose/carbohydrate consumed decreasing the window of Glut-4 activation. Naturally, both scenarios are with the understanding of a moderate amount of carbohydrate consumed throughout the day.
Since Anabolic pump aggressively disposes glucose into muscle cells, this may also eliminate the occurrence of hyperglycemic effects. In contrast, R Lipoic Acid requires insulin, so the benefit of decreased insulin secretion and the possibility of avoiding the abovementioned effects are lost.
In addition, the preferential disposal of glucose into to skeletal muscles and away from adiopose sites is a benefit that insulin dependent glucose disposal agents cannot contest.
Finally, since Anabolic Pump does not require insulin, the user is encouraged to place focus on complex carbohydrates to fill glycogen stores. In contract, some R Lipoic, insulin dependent glucose disposal product users may rely on simple carbohydrates, possibly unhealthy in some cases, to elicit the same response as Anabolic Pump.
This is my interpretation of the two approaches, is this what you were referring to?

Yes that explains it well. Thanks.

Ive actually heard that AAKG was found to produce insulin instead of NO. That's where the pump comes from.

For bodybuilding purposes, AP and Arginine are not going to interact and cause you problems.
If you work in the health field, it might make a good research topic.
