    I notice the endurance aspects of cit Malate more so than the pumps also, however I do think it has it's place in any pump type of product as an additional ingredient but wouldn't expect much from solely that ingredient regarding pump. GMS and creatine nitrate come to mind from personal experience, with the edge going to creatine nitrate.

    how much is "3 scoops" i got great results from 8 grams but it always helps if you have some preworkout carbs as well. i agree: GMS and creatine nitrate are strong pump promoters.

    Citrulline is used in ATP production and assists in the the formation of urea from nitrogen during protein degradation. Both are helpful during resistance training, but I'm not aware of any vasodilating effect directly associated with cit consumption. It can be converted to arginine, but this will only happen if there's an increased need for it

    I've never used it separate from other aminos, but wouldn't expect much by itself in regards to pumps

    Never thought of it as a pump product. Give GMS, creatine, carbs, and PSlin a shot

    Spot on, Sir! The endurance aspect is where it's at. 45 min pre-workout seems to be the sweet spot for me for great endurance.

    i also experienced bigger pump, vasodilation nad higher endurance when adding citrullin malate to my preworkout stack.

    effects of CM will be most noticed in combination with bcaa, fast carbs, arginine and other no promoting agents. and u need at least 5g

    and make sure it's taken on an empty stomach. a lot of folks eat too close to their workout and no wonder no preworkout sup works.
