Pumps.....for looks only?
- 03-20-2012, 01:21 PM
Even if for the psychological effect, I enjoy seeing all of my veins just popping all over the place after a good workout, gives me more motivation to go back to the gym the next day and work as hard if not harder than I did the day before. So, well, I guess it works for me, and I enjoy that look.Androhard + Andromass Log

The fuller my muscles are/feel, the more leverage it seems to live me with my lifts, therefore the pump is very beneficial to me. The more I'm pumped, the better my workouts.
I like to feel da pump.

I dont feel tat I start to lift heavier or more intensly, rather than effective with each motion being on point. Yeah i does motivate me to think "F yeah!"
By believing passionately in something that still does not exist, we create it. The nonexistent is whatever we have not sufficiently desired.

On the basis of cost, you could simply buy straight L-arginine and add it to your preworkout routine. With that being said, L-arginine is a non-essential amino acid and thus your body will produce most of what you need without supplementation. Long term L-arginine supplementation is not necessary nor ideal.

Besides feeling and looking awesome, and being motivating, doesn't "the pump" bring nutrients to ur muscles? Id say that would be another plus.

As far as amino acid delivery and uptake is concerned, there isn't any evidence to suggest that hyperemia will lead to hypertrophy. There are many things that will lead to hyperemia, but the always forgotten element to hypertrophy is TUT (particularly the eccentric contraction). If you're seeking hypertrophy, then TUT is the most important aspect. Granted, hyperemia will almost certainly happen as a result of this, but that does not mean that any hypertrophy should be attributed solely to this. I've gotten some of the nastiest pumps of my life in my thighs and glutes from Prowler pushes, but the eccentric contraction is not there.

I love te pump except in the biceps..my problem is they pump too fast.. I'm talkin like fter two sets theyre full red and veins poppin everywhere it's crazii so it gets really hard to finish my sets.. So I only do two or three excercises on arms days and another two or three on chest days

Nitrix I was hoping for more. It didn't really do much for me. Gave me a decent amount of energy, but not any increase in pump.Originally Posted by hvactech

As far as pumps, Ive had good results with NO SHOTGUN. As with many preworkouts, the emptier the stomach, the greater the pump.
03-25-2012, 03:28 PM
N.O Shotgun used to be my staple preworkout, it always delivered pretty good pumps plus it has the added 20g of protein, no other preworkout that I know has even added protein yet. The reason I switched was cause I wanted to try something new. I ve been reading about Neurocore lately also, supposedly its been giving people decent pumps since it has L-Citrulline in it which is supposed to last longer than Arginine. Plus Neurocore is dirt cheap I found some for $18 for 45 servings.
