Supplements to help with pump?

  1. Supplements to help with pump?


    Hey guys I know there's a laundry list of sups that will help increase pump but I'm looking for ones to help avoid it. I enjoy a good pump when I'm lifting but not when I'm grappling. I do Jiu Jitsu and ever since starting my TRT I have had the most insane forearm pumps. I mean painful to the point where I was competing and with 2 minutes left in a match the use of my fingers and hands were impossible. I couldnt tie my belt after the match. Mind you this was my first of the day. I have to pack ice on them in between and still this wasn't helping. If this was a one time deal I wouldn't be asking but it happens every time I train now. If anyone has any input that would be great. Thanks!!!


  2. What supplements are you taking as of now? I know you said TRT but what else?

    Taurine would be a nice supplement to help reduce the pumps.

  3. Honestly not much. A multi, Vit C, D3, Lysine occasionally (cold sores) and some whey after hard training. I eat pretty clean and include tons of bananas, avocados and no sugar added chocolate milk which I feel replenish me pretty well. I took taurine years ago but dont remember if it helped or not.

  4. Citrulline, Beta Alanine, L Carnatine? Any suggestions guys?

  5. Reduced carbohydrate and fluid intake until after your work out?

  6. Focus xt ftw.

    The above is my own opinion and does not reflect the opinion of PES

  8. Compete should help big time with your endurance/recovery while grappling, but will not provide you with a big pump like Hemavol would.

    I'd say give 1-2 scoops of Compete a try.


    Right now you can buy Hemavol and get a free tub of Compete, so you can use the Hemavol for weight days, and Compete for grappling days.

  14. Def agree with the Hemavol + Compete, awesome endurance and muscular energy, being non-stim.
