The Pump. It's that elusive, sought-after phrase that bodybuilders have chased relentlessly since time began. Some sneer at it - others are skeptical of its importance. But experienced lifters? They know it's paramount.
That fascia that feels like it's tearing against your sleeves isn't just for show, you know. It means something VERY significant is happening at a deep-rooted physiological level that you need to understand.
Let us explain: the 'pump' essentially refers to the process of delivering high-quality nutrients and oxygen to working muscles, resulting in increased hypertrophy (muscle building).
There's many ways to achieve the pump by training intensely, but the most critical way remains to ensure effective pre-workout nutrition and supplementation directly influence how nitric oxide plays a role in your training.
It all starts with Citrulline Malate. This little gem is now a nailed-on inclusion in most peoples pre-workout arsenals, and for good reason too. Evidence is unanimous that it raises both aerobic and anaerobic capacities, meaning more reps, more weight and increased endurance. What most companies don't do, however, is include the right dosage necessary to maximise its effects. 6,000mg in Nitr-OX deals with that issue. Don't expect others to follow and put their money where their mouths are.
Then we get to that exciting 'pump' component. Two of the most effective compounds ever formulated for pre-workouts, glycerol and L-norvaline are combined to ensure nitric oxide is on full throttle overdrive during your workout, and the blood keeps pumping to the working muscle as though an emergency donor is delivering a transfusion. It's that insane.
That skin-tearing feeling means something. It means growth, and for that reason alone does it warrant your attention. Keep Nitr-OX by your side, and watch hypertrophy shoot through the roof.
