Monster Pump Review
Monster Pump is a pre-workout supplement that is supposed to enhance your nitric oxide levels and give you explosive power.
Since its company, CytoSport, is known for using patented and proven ingredients, we decided to research Monster Pump to see if it could live up to its mother company’s name.
What Does Monster Pump Do?
According to its website, Monster Pump is designed to give your body what it needs to decrease the amount of fatigue you feel, thereby allowing you to increase the amount of reps you do, and increase your strength.
Essentially, these kind of supplements help you help yourself.
While there are protein drinks that give your body calories and ingredients that force your body to produce mass, supplements like Monster Pump basically give you more energy to keep working your muscles yourself.
Monster Pump comes in the form of a water additive that just adds a transparent flavor to your water rather than a chalky protein mess. It comes in Sour Apple, Fruit Punch, Sour Grape and Blue Raspberry.
To use this supplement, they recommend adding about 2-3 scoops of Monster Pump to your water bottle and drinking it about half an hour before your workout and then continuing to drink water throughout the rest of your workout.
Does It Work?
After looking at Monster Pump’s ingredients, we can see that they definitely have some ingredients that will help keep your muscles in top shape.
Most of their formula is devoted to patented forms of essential amino acids that your body needs to build more protein tissues and repair old ones.
These amino acids include L-Carnitine, Beta Alanine and Arginine. Although these amino acids are definitely beneficial, they aren’t unique to Monster Pump and can be found in almost any pre-workout supplement of its price range.
Monster Pump also has Creapure which is a Creatine Monohydrate that can help keep the Urea Cycle moving.
Although Monster Pump doesn’t seem to be anything special, it definitely doesn’t look like it is a waste of money.
