    I hope you are joking. Arnold said what he said to make the movie more entertaining and promote it. He explained all that in the anniversary edition. The orgarm comparison, the death of his father, the smoking dope..etc. Pumping Iron was a movie, not a documentary.

    Let me back up a bit, there will be increased nutrient delivery, but in a slightly different sense. The hyperemia is mainly to keep up with the metabolic demand and to help remove metabolic waste (e.g. lactic acid). The nutrients that delivered are mainly ATP and electrolytes, especially calcium.

    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.

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

    Now, the added 'pump' you get from any of these supps....is it really doing you any good besides making you look fuller for a couple hours? In other words, is it just a temporary vanity thing or do the pumps do something physiologically to add to permanent lean mass gains?

    Inquiring minds want to know.

    It won't do anything for you. In fact increasing NO levels= decrease in testosterone.

    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.

    I totally recommend you take enoxide with 3 scoops of Code Red you will get insane pumps, but it probably will enhance the pump on any preworkout, I just about finished my Code Red , so Im gonna pick up some Iforce Hemoval, I heard this one gives some wicked pumps too. Pretty much Glyco Carn , Nitrates, and anything with Agmatine will give you insane pumps.

    Just take it with your pre-workout meal. Actually gives a fairly decent pump. When it comes to nitrates, I'm more of a fan of APS creatine nitrate. I've found five pills pre to be the sweet spot between enhanced pumps and debilitating pumps; the kind where you know your muscle still has something in it, but it's just so pumped that you can't get a decent contraction.

    There's a few articles on this with the rat model, but nothing I've seen in humans.
