SuperPump MAX

ANS Performance Ritual - Our Top Rated Pre Workout

SuperPump MAX is the new ridiculously strong and potent pre-workout supplement brought to you by Gaspari Nutrition – which is obviously the same guys who created SuperPump 250 – a nitric oxide supplement that absolutely devastated the market with it’s monstrous pumps and energy.

SuperPump MAX – The Background Story

The bad news is that SuperPump 250 is being phased out and discontinued. The better news is that Gaspari SuperPump MAX absolutely levels SuperPump 250 in nearly every category, from nutrition, to pump, to clean energy, to strength gains. Gaspari found some new science, but the labs aren’t where real success is made. So they got their trusted beta testers (who loved 250), put it to the test, got results, tweaked it further, and the MAX was born.

Before going deeper into the SuperPump 250 vs. SuperPump MAX discussion, let’s take a look at its main ingredients to get a feel for things.

SuperPump MAX Ingredients

First and foremost, Gaspari Nutrition SuperPump MAX contains a great deal of L-Taurine. Taurine is an awesome muscle hydrator, and is becoming quite popular in both the bodybuilding and endurance sports communities. The last thing you want to happen is to have your muscles get dehydrated! Taurine takes care of that problem.

Another new and interesting component inside is Sustamine, or L-Alanyl-L-Glutamine. This is a new form of glutamine that works much better than standard L-Glutamine, since it doesn’t break down in your gut, and actually gets into the muscles without having to take monstrous doses of it. Sustamine is another great endurance supplement.

The Official Gaspari Commercial / Ad

There are two glycerine-based components, which help give you a great pump. Glycerin works well for some, and extremely well for others.

The endurance complex inside doesn’t necessarily bring anything new to the table, but it brings working and proven amino acids in L-Citrulline (popular in Scivation Xtend) and L-Carnitine L-Tartrate (Carnipure). Both of these are proven in double-blinded, placebo-controlled studies to increase endurance and reduce fatigue!

Furthermore, Super Pump MAX contains some BCAAs – 2g of Leucine, and an unknown amount of Isoleucine and Valine. BCAAs are the building blocks of your muscle tissue and promote protein promote muscle synthesis – also proven in studies – and even reduce fatigue as well! If you want, you can also add more unflavored BCAAs to it and it will still taste fine.

We appreciate that Gaspari tells us how much creatine monohydrate is in this product – 1.3g. This means that I know I am still safe putting about 4g more in my post-workout shake. I’m cool with proprietary formulas – companies need to protect their brand – but some things like creatine are simply no magical secret anymore. Just tell me how much there is, nobody’s gonna steal that number, and I can adjust the rest of my intake. Kudos to you, Gaspari!!

Finally, let’s talk about the energy complex. Last but definitely not least. L-Tyrosine is a brain focus amino acid that helps get you in the zone. Of course, there’s caffeine too, which will give you plenty of energy.

If you can see one thing in this product, it’s that it contains a lot of endurance components. SuperPump 250 was always great at the pump, but now you get the best of both worlds so that your workout can last forever!

SuperPump MAX Nutrition

Another huge change in MAX is that there are only 3g of carbohydrates. Popularized by supplements such as Jack3d, 0 carbs became a big thing. If you want to burn fat, you really don’t need 8g of carbs in every scoop – especially from maltodextrin, which will induce fat storage.

However, you do want some carbs in your pre-workout if you want to gain some size!! Not a ton, but enough to get your insulin moving and ready to shuttle nutrients to your muscles. So with SuperPump MAX, you’ll be getting anywhere from 3-9g of high-glycemic carbs – the perfect amount – to provide you with a bit of caloric energy as well as insulin.

SuperPump 250 vs. SuperPump MAX

Overall, SuperPump MAX works much better for me. Less maltodextrin is critical. Using glycerin-based components rather than arginine or AAKG will be a great change-up from every other pre-workout supplement. This is a great product to cycle into. All of the endurance components listed above really do work – MAX isn’t just for lifting – it can be used for your runs, swims, CrossFit, P90X, and anything else.

If you’re a big fan of AAKG, though, then you might want to add your own – it’s quite cheap and will not affect the taste since the flavors are moderately strong anyway.

Overall, we’re extremely happy with Super Pump MAX, mainly due to less maltodextrin, more endurance, and bringing something new with the glycerin-based components, and that’s how we feel about SuperPump MAX vs. SuperPump 250

SuperPump MAX Review

As we’ve mentioned above, the complex is incredible and it works well. So let’s talk about FLAVORS! I’m personally a big fan of blue raspberry, and this one tastes really good – but very strong. One scoop of SuperPump MAX can easily overwhelm 20oz of water. So if you like your blue razz strong or lots of water before you work out, you’ll love this one.

I haven’t had Raspberry Lemonade, but this was the big winner for SuperPump 250, and looking at Gaspari SuperPump MAX reviews around the web, Gaspari nailed it once again.

Concluding our SuperPump MAX review, fruit punch blast is standard fruit punch. If you like fruit punch, you’ll be happy with this. The same goes for Pink Lemonade, which I’m normally not a fan of, so I didn’t bother with this one either.

Here’s another video review – Our biggest problem with what Aaron’s saying is that first off, changing to Glycerin-based pump is a big innovation, and second – he doesn’t use a shaker! This stuff mixes PERFECTLY FINE if you put the water in first, and use a shaker, not a straw. I even think if he had the water in first, a straw would have been OK. Either way, not a bad video:

SuperPump MAX Side Effects

It all comes down to what’s inside – and everything in SuperPump 250 MAX is extremely safe. Most of this product is naturally-occurring amino acids. However, the biggest thing to be concerned about is if you’re caffeine-sensitive, you might want to stay at one scoop, as you should know with pre-workout supplements by now.

You will need to look up the side effects of every ingredient to get an idea for the side effects of SuperPump MAX, but each of these components is extremely safe. Just stick within the dosing, don’t mix it with other caffeinated products (ie no thermogenic fat burners near your workout on workout days), and you’re all set.

    can you tske this supplement if you took seizures in the past

    • Admin 08. Sep, 2011 at 4:43 pm #

      Definitely ask your doctor is the best we can say, and if he approves, start with a light dosage. This goes for any supplement.

    do superpump max increase urine flow? cuz i am peeing alot more and more since i been taking it. is it normal?

    • Admin 10. Nov, 2011 at 12:09 pm #

      I’ve personally never heard of this. Of course you’re going to need to excrete the fluids you ingested, and this pre workout supplement does require a fair amount of water to dilute the strong taste, so you will end up peeing it out.

      I’m interested to hear if anyone else has more than average urine from glycerin-based supplements like this though.

      It’s not recommended to mix stimulants like this. However, since SuperPump MAX is pretty low stim dosage, you could take ONE fat burner pill 8 hours apart from your pre workout (check out the Best Fat Burner 2012 for our recommendation this year). So if you do morning workouts, if 1 scoop SuperPump MAX is at 7am, then a bit after lunch… around 2pm is good to take the fat burner. But stick to minimum dosages of both!!

    Can i take Super Pump Max before cardio and then hit the plates(Start Lifting)?, my brother advised me to take it and directly do cardio as it will not take effect till 30 minutes pass. appreciate the advice.

    • Admin 21. Feb, 2012 at 8:40 pm #

      I like your brother’s idea. You can try both ways, but if you’re going for pumps, timing it up with the weights is your main goal. It also depends on how much food is in your stomach.

    I play on a premier soccer team but i also am trying to start natural bodybuilding because i have become obsessed with that image. anyways I just started to take superpump max and it is great during work outs what i was wondering was: how can I build the weight i want with having to train for soccer. currently I weigh 150 (today) and I would like to be 170 somewhere down the road. I do take a protein supplement everyday and I also take vitamin b-complex as well… If you have any advice on anything at all I would love to hear from you!!!

      I should also add that i am about 5’7” or 5’8” if that can help me out idk. and last september when i start to work out religiously i was 130 pounds.

    • Admin 26. Mar, 2012 at 11:10 am #

      Hey, that’s awesome. Your energy and activity levels are very high, so it’s going to have to come through proper food consumption. Check out the free diet plan on the right side of this page for an amazing boost. The natural, whole food carbs, and proper use of fats will slowly get you there. This isn’t going to be about supplements for you – it’s going to be about eating a lot and timing it up right. is the link to the book that will get you on the track. As for workouts, you’ll need to see how to mix the lifting into your soccer schedule.

    Will this Product help me increase muscle mass? If so, how?

    • Admin 18. Apr, 2012 at 6:02 pm #

      It’s tough to answer this question, because in all honesty, it really depends on your diet, training, and nutrient timing.

      But yeah, SuperPump MAX has some great stuff like the branched chain amino acids (leucine, isoleucine, and valine), as well as creatine, and a few others. These are definitely shown to have anabolic effects and creatine has been proven time and time again to be safe and effective.

      On top of this, you’ll definitely have better workouts, which will lead to more “muscle tearing” — but then it’s up to YOU to eat right and rebuild those muscles.

      So to answer your question, yes, but there’s so much more at play to make it REALLY work.
