SuperPump Max is a bodybuilding supplement produced in the US by Gaspari Nutrition. The company takes its name from its founder, Rich Gaspari—a very successful bodybuilder in the 1980s and 90s who was inducted into the International Federation of Bodybuilding and Fitness (IFBB) Hall of Fame in 2004.
Gaspari Supplements has been trading since 2001 and the company produces an extensive range of products. SuperPump Max had been designed to be used prior to workout sessions and promises to aid athletic performance and recovery levels.
- Increases Endurance Capacity
- Fights Muscle Soreness and Fatigue
- Enhances Nitric Oxide Levels and Vasodilation
SuperPump Max should only be used on training days.
One to three (16g) scoops should be mixed with 8 to 24oz. of cold water or juice and be consumed 30 to 40 minutes before training is commenced, but the manufacturers state new users should restrict their supplementation level to just one scoop for the first two to three workouts to allow the body the opportunity to ‘properly assimilate to SuperPump Max’s high dosage of nutrients’.
How it all Stacks up
SuperPump Max contains a healthy dose of vitamins and minerals that should ensure the body is topped-up with everything it needs to perform and heal at maximum efficiency. Magnesium, calcium, potassium, and sodium are particularly noteworthy due to their ability to act as electrolytes and ensure correct muscle function and hydration during training.
The caffeine content should help provide increased focus and amp-up energy levels, while the included creatine sources get to work and enhance the body’s ability to sustain a high-intensity workout and then aid the subsequent healing process and provide increased muscle volume.
The blend also contains a variety of amino acids and other ingredients that should help the user obtain the best results from their bodybuilding activities, but the fact that many of the ingredients are hidden in a proprietary blend means that inclusion rates are not available. This makes it hard to speculate on their benefits, but customer feedback should provide a better indication of the SuperPump Max blend’s true potential as a training aid.
Gaspari Nutrition point out SuperPump Max contains caffeine. This may make the blend problematic for users who have a low tolerance to caffeine or other stimulants. Caffeine-related side effects can include the jitters, restlessness, headaches, nausea, and heart palpitations.
The blend may not be suitable for pregnant of nursing mothers, anyone with known or suspected health issues, or people taking medication. Potential users who fall into any of these groups are advised to seek medical advice before consuming SuperPump Max or any other form of supplement.
The fact that SuperPump Max is available to buy from so many different suppliers has resulted in the product receiving a wealth of feedback and although a few customers have left one star reviews and state Super Pump provided ‘super miserable’ results such responses are in the minority and the bulk of reviews are extremely good.
