    Lightbulb Help recover my Pump

    hey guys i want your opinion on this matter : For a while now i haven't been able to feel a pump in any body part except for chest( I do have big boobies) during my workouts.. I know pump doesn't necessarelly mean you're growing but it is a nice feeling and I always had it when I did bis or tris for example and for months now I'm not able to reach it(allusion to orgasm). No my training hasn't changed that much, I even do more reps than before what should help with pump....

    I'm thinking of buying something for pre workout... like a real pw product like nitrix, superpump or jack3d. Or should I buy simple Arginine wich is cheaper and does the trick?

    what do you guys think?

    Re: Help recover my Pump

    IMHO you should change a little bit your workouts, I mean, when I hit legs (quads and hams), sometimes I do first quads and them hams, sometimes hams and then quads...

    Change order of bodyparts and/or exercices, number of reps, etc, etc.

    It should do the trick.

    Re: Help recover my Pump

    There are several different avenues you can take. Supplements, change your workout, change your diet, and/or take a break. I did all of those combined and my pumps came back in a large way. The lack of pumps and staleness of my workouts were the reason for my break from the gym in the first place.

    I do that- I don+t do the same workout twice, I change the order of the exercises rep schemes.

    @Big4P: My diet is spot on bro, and I feel good while training no need to take time off... it's just that pump , skin tighness feeling that I stoped experiencing

    Re: Help recover my Pump

    Not very scientifically based but, to get pump on my shoulders, before doing dummbell flies i previously do like 50 reps without weight; slowly, squeezing and holding at the top, just like if it would be a serious exercice.

    I tend to get some pump at 30th rep, but continue.
    Rest like 20-30 seconds and go. Now, i have the pumped feeling during all my shoulder workout.


    Obviously, the key idea behind this, is getting blood to your muscle. It will probably tire you for your main exercice as it happens to me, so i have to lower the weight. You could also feel tireness and exhaustion rather than pump, if you focus in fast, uncontrolled reps, but try focusing on slow, controlled reps, feeling the muscle. (Think in Kai, LOL!) but trying wont kill you.

    Hope that helps.

    Re: Help recover my Pump

    are you eating sufficient calories ?? try to increase your carbs a bit,i ve noticed in my self that when i eat many carbs i get a better pump
    if you want to buy a pre workout supplement..try superpump orange flavor..its the best out of those i have tried and tastes good(its not i ve tried many of them tho)i liked the superpump so i stick with that one

    Re: Help recover my Pump

    A lot of the pump sensation is TUT. Try using a controlled rep candence and increase the TUT. Also sets back to back with shorter breaks. Also have a look at your fitness, have you increased your fitness with your level of strength/size?

    Time Under Tension. Basically how long you are loading the muscles (etc) for during a set.

    Something that never fails to pump my forearms and biceps up is Kroc rows with a thick grip.

    yup I have had great sessions lately , like today pump on chest was awesome and bis was pretty good too.

    Re: Help recover my Pump

    That's strange that you just kind of lost it randomly like that. You think maybe your routine was just getting stale and you were bored? I find when I don't really feel like training, I don't get pumped.

    Also with regards to NO, most of those supps don't do what they say they are supposed to. Preworkout supps should be used for energy more than relying on them to give you a pump. Don't quote me on this, I can't recall which chemical it is, but what's in there is supposed to increase NO in the blood stream and therefor vasodilate. Using NO in such a manner is ineffective. You need to take subq injections of the stuff in high dosage for it to be effective. NO products give great energy, but a lot of the effects are placebo. If it still works for you, that's great. But i wouldn't rely on them. You can get a lot out of just caffiene and DMAA.
