While pre-workouts are all the rage, some people prefer the pump without stimulants. If that sounds like you, then Pumped-AF is exactly what you're looking for.
Pumped-AF is designed to provide maximum vasodilation and substantially increase cellular volume.
The result? Increased muscle fullness, skin bursting pumps, and increased training capacity.
It's great for men and women looking to improve endurance and performance across a number of athletic activities ranging from powerlifting, CrossFit, cycling, swimming, and traditional resistance training.
If you've been searching for an effective stimulant-free pre-workout, then look no further.
Here's a detailed ingredient and benefits breakdown of Pumped-AF and how it can improve your training:
Benefits of PUMPED AF:
Here are the key ingredients in Pumped-AF:
Sodium Chloride: Sodium chloride (NaCl), also known as salt, is an essential compound your body uses to:
HydromaxTM: The industry’s first highly concentrated and stable form of powdered glycerol offering next-level hydration in a uniquely optimized blend of glycerol and silica, HydroMax® is like glycerol-plus.
HydroMaxTM delivers all the goodness of glycerol in a powdered form with none of the stability drawbacks.

Agmatine Sulfate: Agmatine is a compound naturally formed from the amino acid L-arginine. It is a neurotransmitter found predominantly in neurons. Because it is capable of targeting multiple receptors, researchers are investigating it in the context of a wide spectrum of complex diseases.
Furthermore, some research suggests that agmatine may play a role in cognitive function, stress resiliency, mood, and athletic performance.
Agmatine is a natural component of the inner workings of many cells and it has complex interactions with cellular function. Researchers have been working to untangle agmatine’s mechanisms and effects by studying human and animal cells as well as bacteria. Agmatine appears to block the production of NOS (nitric oxide synthase). Thus, some researchers believe agmatine may regulate nitric oxide levels.

Representative expressional levels of eNOS (A) and iNOS (C) at 6 h after agmatine treatment (100 mg/kg, i.p), and densitometric data (B, D). Data represent means±SD for n=5/NC, n=3/EC and Agm group per each time point.
Beta Vulgaris (Beetroot) Extract: Beetroot (Beta vulgaris) is a root vegetable also known as red beet, table beet, garden beet, or just beet. It's packed with essential nutrients and they are a great source of fiber, folate (vitamin B9), manganese, potassium, iron, and vitamin C.
Beetroots and beetroot juice have been associated with numerous health benefits including improved blood flow, lower blood pressure, and increased exercise performance. Many of these benefits are due to their high content of inorganic nitrates.
Here are some benefits of beetroot for heart health and exercise performance.

Kre-Alkalyn: Kre-alkalyn is a buffered form of creatine that is touted to remain more stable in the stomach, is not degraded to creatinine and thereby has greater bioavailability. This is accomplished by adding alkaline powder (e.g. soda ash, magnesium glycerol phosphate, bicarbonate) to creatine in order to adjust the pH to a range between 7-14
Like stimulants and the pump? Perfect!
