pump... It is the holy grail of bodybuilding. It is that most addictive
of sensations that keeps gym rats hooked for life. It is euphoric and
invigorating, an intense swelling of the muscle caused by a
training-induced cascade of blood… It is a rebirth experienced on each
worthwhile trip to the gym. The pump is instant gratification… An
automatic reward for all of the blood, sweat and tears you spill on the
gym floor. The pump is instantaneous growth… It is the immediate
invigoration of dormant muscle fibers.
There are days,
however, where no matter what you do, the pump is seemingly
unattainable… Set after wasted set, you toil in vain. Nothing. Nada.
Zilch. You yearn to be pumped and swole and instead you are beaten and
weary. On other days, the pump is fleeting. As quickly as it arrives,
it is gone… Leaving both your ego and your muscle bellies deflated. The
disappointment in your inability to achieve and sustain the cherished
pump is not merely due to the pleasure of a superficial physical
response, but in the fact that an opportunity for new growth has been
squandered. The pump ain't just for shits and giggles-it is crucial to
The pump is essential in the promotion of new
muscle growth. With each pump-inducing rep, nutrient rich fluid and
blood fills the working cells, engorging the muscle. This occurrence
kick starts the anabolic process. The muscle cell walls are stretched
and strained and practically bursting with fluid, this is called cell
volumization. Assuming you are eating and supplementing properly, this
fluid should be chock full of the kind of nourishing elements
specifically designed to help you do the one thing you came here to do…
Grow. This is where Animal Pump kicks down the door and goes to work.
ya know why you need the pump-that feeling of having your muscles fully
engorged with blood is what drives a bodybuilder. Once the pump is
there, fueling the muscles with the right nutrients is where optimal
gains can be reached. Animal Pump is this fuel. Getting the right blend
of nutrients is essential. Animal Pump has it all, from it's
synergistic cutting edge creatine blend, NO Blast Complex, proprietary
energy and concentration mix, down to it's cell protective antioxidant
complex and specialized transport blend which shuttles the Pump to your
From a strength and muscle cell
volumizing point of view, it gets no better than Animal Pump, because
Pump is packed with a new school matrix of creatines-a full, daily
dose. Bodybuilders have used creatine for a decade now with good
results and over the years, science has brought more and more advanced
forms of creatine to the fore. Creatine is a core, basic bodybuilding
supplement and as such, Pump is a welcome addition to the Animal line.
When you perform a heavy set, intracellular ATP levels decrease.
Creatine helps restore these ATP levels. But not just any old creatine
will do the job; Animal Pump includes only the best. Taking creatine
supplementation to the next level, Animal Pump combines Magnesium
Creatine Chelate (MCC), a patented form of creatine, with the newest
sensation Creatine Ethyl Ester (CEE) and proven Tri-Creatine Matrix
(TCM) to deliver maximum benefits. This blend combats the creatine
absorption issues and bloating of yesteryear, ensuring your creatine
reaches your growing muscles and not the toilet bowl. Pump ensures that
the ergogenic effects of creatine are maximized, eliminating any
unwanted side effects and making the creatine non-responder of
yesteryear an extinct species.
an intense workout, one of the limiting factors of your muscular power
and endurance is oxygen and the availability of oxygen-rich nutrients
to muscle tissue. Our NO Blast Complex is a blend of compounds designed
to combat this problem. Arginine AKG, Citrulline Malate and L-norvaline
are combined to maximize nitric oxide release. From a bodybuilding
point of view, this means incredible muscular pumps and a greater
ability to funnel clean oxygen and nutrient-rich blood into your
muscles. This results in optimal muscular fullness and cellular
nutrient uptake and translates into what all bodybuilders crave-greater
Even if you are strong and pumped, how can
you possibly tear the gym apart if you're energy deprived and lacking
mental concentration? Daily life is filled with constant roadblocks
that try to throw you off in the iron game. So when it comes to energy,
Animal Pump has got your back. Animal Pump's Energy Rush Complex
combines powerful methylxanthines along with evodiamine and
vinpocentine to give you that energy boost that gets you fired up for
training and the focus and mental acuity so vital to establishing the
mind-muscle connection. These powerful substances reach deep into the
muscle cell to provide long-lasting energy and power, thus delaying the
onset of muscle fatigue. That performance and focus edge can be the
difference between the physique of a weekend warrior and a top
ain't done yet, bro… Animal Pump incorporates a comprehensive
antioxidant blend designed to protect your cells from the heavy
onslaught of hardcore lifting. Heavy lifting leaves behind free
radicals, which are damaging if left alone. Free radical production is
also increased with enhanced nitric oxide release. We included the best
antioxidants to make sure these free radicals are cleaned out leaving
your immune system strong.
Last but certainly not least,
a supreme nutrient transport complex, a blend of insulin boosters and
absorption enhancers, ties the Animal Pump formula together. This
complex efficiently and quickly draws all of these critical nutrients
to your muscles. Insulin is especially important for channeling this
powerful cutting edge blend into your muscle cells. Sugar-laden
formulas of the past helped boost insulin levels, however they also
added unnecessary carbohydrates.
With Animal Pump no carbs are needed for maximum insulin potentiating
effects. Animal Pump's innovative insulin boosters can significantly
enhance the pump, decrease lactic acid build up and rapidly saturate
the muscle with cutting edge creatines and essential nutrients for
growth. This is further amplified by specialized absorption enhancers,
which ensure that Animal Pump's complexes are fully absorbed and
transported to the muscles where they will be fully utilized.
pump is an integral component to new muscle growth. It is literally the
“lifeblood” of your bodybuilding pursuits, giving meaning to monotonous
training sessions and giving nourishment to your depleted muscle cells.
Without the pump, you're going nowhere… Harness its power and the sky's
the limit. If you wanna blow up, with seam-tearing, stretch-marking
mass and personal record breaking strength, Animal Pump is your holy
grail. It's the pump, in a pack.
• Competitive strength & power athletes • Those looking to improve gym performance • Athletes looking to prolong pump • Off-season bodybuilders looking to add mass & strength • Creatine non-responders • Those who hate the creatine “bloat”
optimize the “pump” use one pack 30 minutes before your workout. Do not
consume any whole foods or protein shakes between your daily dose of
Animal Pump and your training session. In order to maximize results, be
sure to stay hydrated and prioritize the uptake of fluids before and
Pump can be taken year round, without cycling off. Like Animal Pak,
Animal Flex and Animal Nitro/G, Pump is designed as a core or
“foundational supplement”. For bigger gains, consider stacking Pump
