Pump based pre-workouts have catapulted into the supplement stacks of many training enthusiasts. Pump specific pre-workouts come in high stimulant or stimulant-free versions, so depending on what your preference is, there is something for everyone - try one of our best selling pump pre-workouts by MAN Sports. Pre-Workout supplements are formulated to give the user an enhanced workout directly after consumption. Whilst most pre-workouts contain a plethora of performance enhancing ingredients, some go heavier on the Nitric Oxide (NO) ingredients aka “pump” ingredients. The term “pump” refers to the full feeling you get in your muscles whilst training. This is the muscles engorging with blood, oxygen and nutrients and feeling fuller! Most gym lovers these days are forever chasing a pump!
Pre-Workout pump supplements such as Legacy by Muscle Nation, benefit the user in many ways. Nitric Oxide production will be elevated, which leads to vasodilation and increased vascularity. What this means is that your veins will actually dilate and allow MORE blood, oxygen and nutrients into the muscles where they are required. This leads to better performance, growth and recovery. Secondly, your muscles will volumise, increasing muscle fullness and potential nutrient absorption. Glycerol specifically, will increase intracellular tissue hydration levels, leading to a level of “hyper-hydration”. This will improve exercise performance and prevent dehydration while training.
Staple pre-workout pump ingredients which should be looked for include Agmatine, Citrulline, Arginine (comes attached to various different esters), HydroMax Glycerol and GPLC. These ingredients are able to be purchased individually or in combination in a pre-prepared supplement. When looking for ways to take your training and results to the next level, look at adding a pump based pre-workout from Supplement Mart to your stack!
