superpump?

 I've read alot lately about different pre-workout suppliments and its left me feeling like I'm missing something. I want to try something pre-workout and see if the benefits are really as good as it says on the tub, preferably with out losing money.
 
 So what are peoples views on products such as superpump 250, NO xplod and nitrix? I know there are a hundred others but these are the ones I've been more interested in.
 
 By the way, I'm not looking for some intense buzz that comes close to amphetamines, I want something that will give me this extra pump they all seem to claim.
 
 Thanks in advance

    Between Superpump and NO-Xplode, it's a no-brainer for me given what you're looking for from the product.
     
    For me Superpump is a superior pump product to NO-Xplode.  The BSN offering is still a good one, but (again for me) provides more of a stim 'kick' and less pump.
     
    Hope this helps.

     The kind of answer I was looking for!
     
     Also, how would you rate this type of supplement? Regardless of brand. Just wonder if it's worth trying as it does sound very beneficial.

    These products can be a great part of your fitness regime for sure.  If you train first thing, or sometimes feel jaded then the extra stimulus can prove useful.  They are said to aid in the prevention of fatigue, and the removal of lactic acid and other such toxins.  The improved pump and vascularity are good for vanity purposes alone lol.
     
    However, these products shouldn't be used more often than 2-3 times per week as a tolerance to the caffeine quickly develops and you then require more product for less effect - and it obviously costs more as you use more!
     
    I like pre-workout products and trying different products can be great fun.  Is it an essential supplement?  No.  Diet and routine are far more important than any supplement, and I would various other supplements ahead of pre-workouts in the pecking order.
     
    That doesn't mean that they can't serve a purpose in an individual's regime - just don't rely on them for each and every workout.

    It sounds like a good supplement to me to be honest, from how you've described things and from what I've read.
     
     It's not intended as my sole supplement, just something to give a little extra boost. I tend to train round 3 oclock, sometimes 4 depending on what the day brings so its not so much for the stimulant though I would benefit from it.
     
     I train 4 times a week, you said to use the product only 2 - 3 times a week due to building a tolerance. Would this mean that if I used it on back day and shoulder day for example, that I would develop more in those two areas and not the others? Or is there a way for it to be beneficial for the whole weeks training. Just a thought as I don't fancy being too out of proportion (already a bit late as years of ice hockey blessed me with a great set of legs).

    Superpump max and 250 wouldn't use any other myself.
     
    Love the products.

    If you love something let it go,if it comes back to you it's yours,if it doesn't it never was.

    You've missed the point I think they won't "develop" anything, just give you a better pump on those days.
     
    Of the products you mentioned SP250 actually made me feel sick througout my workout but it is incredibly popular so I think I am in the minority there!

    Sorry I should have worded that better. I know the NO on it's own won't develop the muscle, but surely the increased workload from the stimulants, and the extra protein carried round your body from the increased blood flow, would lead to more development?

    Really? I'm very much a novice when it comes to stuff like this, but I would of thought there was some increase even if quite small. Then again my lack of knowledge is exactly why I'm asking in the first place.

    Sorry that may have sounded a little sharp, I just didn't want to leave any impression that for example taking SP250 on back day would in any way have an effect on your back development. There will be no noticeable difference.
     
    If you choose to take a pre workout on your 'favourite' days (eg. chest) and always train harder these days as you enjoy it more, then this body part will obviously be better developed.

    Makes a bit more sense lol. I get confused easily when it comes to stuff I'm new to. So if it doesn't help you develop better long term, the extra pump it gives you is purely just for the fun of it? Still sounds a good product, but more of a fun thing rather than a serious supplement.

    Yeah pretty much!
     
    For me personally I take a pre workout product to wake me up for a workout in the morning as I train first thing, hate training with a full stomach and I'll be damned if I am waking up hours earlier to eat a meal just to not take a supplement!

    Makes sense!
     
     On the topic of increased vascularity and pumps etc, which product would you recommend? Alot of people have said superpump, alot of other people have said NO xplod or nitrix. I've also seen another product called gaspari plasma jet, which looks like a very extreme version. I really don't want to spend £30 on a tub of what ever and find I don't get what I want from it etc

    I'm not allowed to recommend products as such as a forum sponsor, but even though SP250 made me feel sick I did get a good pump, NO-Xplode I much preferred but more for energy than pump. Not tried nitrix or plasmajet though so can't really comment on them - best bet is probs to read some online reviews or just bite the bullet and try them!

    I've read that superpump is the better of the two so I might give that a try. Thanks for your help, you've made me realise that I'm not missing out on some insane product. I really do get sucked in by marketing tricks!

    U could use a product like SP 250 or max if you want the 'pump' and/or 'kick' aspect, however, if your looking for just a 'pump' product without the stimulants, then may I suggest Thermolife Pump-bol?

    I'll have a look into it thanks mate. I got a free sample of the DY Nox the other day and guzzled it before my delt and quad workout, I've never had such a good session in the gym! So definitely going to look more into this kind of supplement
