What's happening SR community? Today i'll be putting down my review for Lecheek's pump product Pump X3. So let's get down to it.

BACKGROUND

I've decided that in 2015 I will take a complete break from stims and especially stimmed-PWO's. But this doesnt meant a break from PWO's completely, which has left me to investigate the world of pump and non-stimmed PWOs. Lecheek is a well-known brand in the supplement industry, and one of my favourite supplement brands, so it made sense to me to give their version of a nitric oxide-pumping inducing offering a go.

INGREDIENT PROFILE - 8.5/10

Firstly, there's a few ingredients with complete disclosure that are to aid with absorption of the remaining ingredients. Unfortunately, these ingredients are in a prop blend, so marks come off. The ingredients outside the blend are dosed efficiently, which is good to see. The ingredients within the blend, well who knows? It's a 4120mg blend, and the top ingredient is creatine monohydrate, so you'd expect that would be the highest-dosed ingredient in the blend. Unfortunately, most people will know and take 5g of creatine, so the blend doesnt even cover this. I supplemented with my own creatine, at a guess I would put in 2-3g of my own stuff, hoping there was bout 2-3g of Lecheek's stuff in there. There's also some Creatine HCl, but again, who knows how much is in there. Let's be honest though, pump products/NO precursors have been around for a while now, and for the most part all the effective ones have similar ingredients, so I dont see the need to protect your IP within a blend, but meh, whatever. I should also point out on some days I did dose this with CarnoSyn beta alanine at 4g.

DOSING

Originally I dosed this at 1 scoop, and as the effectiveness started to wear off I increased the dosage. I never went above 1 1/2 scoops, that was my sweet spot where I had consistent results through the whole tub. I would take this product 20-30mins before working out, I found giving it a little longer to work into your system helped its effectiveness.

TASTE/MIXING - 9.5/10

Nothing irregular to report here. Even with my own additions of creatine and CarnoSyn it always mixed up nicely. My flavour was fruit punch and it was quite nice. I like a strong taste so I usually add a little less water than what is recommended, and it never really bothered me. I enjoyed the taste all the way through the tub, I was never dreading taking this.

EFFECTIVENESS - 9/10

Let's break it down:

Strength and Electrolyte Matrix - 9/10 - I found this product helped with my endurance during workouts. I found myself drinking more water during my workout when using Pump X3, and as a result felt less dehydrated after my workouts.

Mind Blowing Pumps - 9.2/10 - Yes, this product gives you pumps. Good ones. I had excellent results for about a week at 1 scoop, then had to up it to 1.5 and that was my sweet spot for the remainder of the tub. I would get back pumps on back day with this if I pushed hard enough. Of course you can get a pump naturally, but I felt Pump X3 was great and blowing you up after your first warmup set, and then maintaining that pump through a workout and for a period afterward.

Insane Vascularity - 8/10 - I am not a very veiny person, so I cant comment too much here. I did notice veins popping in my forearms and biceps more on arm days, and also on the tops of my quads on a higher-rep quad day. Insane? I wouldnt say that, but noticeable? Yes.

Side Effects - 0/10

Nothing to report here. No crazy toilet stops, cramps or anything on this product.

VALUE - 8.5/10

You can get all Lecheek products pretty cheap at a number of online retailers. Locally here in Australia it's brutally expensive (>$60/tub) and hard to find, so I will buy it online when there's another sale and it's under $30/tub.

CONCLUSION - 9/10

Pump X3 does what a NO/pump product should. You may need to play with the dosage to find your sweet spot, but once that's locked in this product is a winner. I would buy this again with my own money, however it would be great if the ingredients werent in a prop blend.
