All good companies know that updating and innovation is the key to longevity and that is exactly the mantra that Gaspari Nutrition has abided by in the latter months of 2013 and early months of 2014 with the release of a huge range of new supplements. One of these supplements is the newly revamped SuperPump 3.0, the third revision of the extremely popular pre-workout series from Gaspari. How does it compare with its predecessors and how does it compare with the current competition?
- Strong and well dosed pre-workout featuring tried and true ingredients
- Designed for pumps, mental alertness, energy, focus, strength and endurance
- Excellent taste and quick absorption for fast effects
Gaspari SuperPump 3.0 Ingredients & Dosage
The new Gaspari SuperPump 3.0 is a completely transparently dosed pre-workout with all the active ingredients and their dosages accounted for, something Gaspari Nutrition has been promoting in the last few years thanks to the slow demise of the proprietary blend. SuperPump 3.0 contains 3 key active complexes of ingredients which includes:
- Nitro-Strength Complex (3,750mg) – A three ingredient matrix of Creapure™ creatine, inositol arginine silicate (Nitrosigine™) and agmatine sulphate.
- Amino-Fuel Complex (3,600mg) – This complex includes the branched chain amino acids and beta-alanine.
- Neuro-Energy Matrix (1,055mg) – A four ingredient complex of l-tyrosine, choline, caffeine and black pepper extract (BioPerine®)
The rest of the supplement contains a small amount of vitamins such as vitamin C, B3, B6 and B12, which have been known to support energy production. Each serving of SuperPump 3.0 is 11g with 8.4g being active ingredients. Each container of SuperPump 3.0 contains 36 servings with a maximum recommended dose of 2 servings per day.
Gaspari SuperPump 3.0 Pros & Effectiveness
The original Gaspari SuperPump was one of the best pre-workouts around, but the supplement was polarising in that it also came with it a set of intense side effects. The SuperPump MAX variant was able to correct a lot of these issues but didn’t feel as though it was as strong as the original. Gaspari’s new SuperPump 3.0 is definitely dosed well, especially if you were having a double serving. The list of ingredients are tried and true so you can’t really go wrong with them. Caffeine, tyrosine, choline, BCAAs, creatine and beta-alanine are all ingredients which have plenty of research supporting its benefits for workout performance. Agmatine is an increasingly popular ingredient thanks to increasing evidence for its potential as a nitric oxide potentiator, but also as an ingredient which supports the absorption of other ingredients. The only other ingredient Nitrosigine is the trade name for inositol arginine silicate, which is an effective compound to raise arginine levels in the body and therefore pump. Overall, SuperPump 3.0 collects together a huge range of tried and true ingredients at excellent doses.
Gaspari SuperPump 3.0 Cons
Gaspari SuperPump 3.0 is a well dosed supplement, but its formulation is nothing revolutionary. The vast majority of the ingredients have been seen before and are already staples in many of the other pre-workouts. What this means is that SuperPump 3.0 is a safe pre-workout which will do its job, but probably won’t offer any surprises. The only other issue with the supplement is that for most trainers who have used pre-workouts before, a double serving of SuperPump 3.0 is required to elicit the same sorts of effects you were used to – which could mean a fairly pricey way to boost your workout capacity.
Gaspari SuperPump 3.0 Taste & Mixability
Gaspari SuperPump 3.0 has been confirmed to have 4 flavours in the initial first launch range including; Lemon Ice, Watermelon, Fruit Punch and Strawberry Kiwi. These flavours are extremely similar to what you would find in one of their best tasting supplements available; Gaspari AminoLast supplements. While SuperPump 3.0 has a whole different range of ingredients to flavour, Gaspari's flavouring technology has dramatically improved over the last couple of years and this is definitely evident through their releases. No doubt then that SuperPump 3.0 will be afforded the same high calibre of taste and mixability as their last few releases.
Gaspari SuperPump 3.0 Verdict
Newly repackaged and with plenty of time for reformulation, SuperPump 3.0 is one of the most exciting new releases from Gaspari Nutrition over the last couple of years. With the pre-workout market stricter and more popular than ever, Gaspari Nutrition has come out with a traditional and super reliable pre-workout which will help you get the most out of your training sessions. The supplement is nothing fancy nor all that innovative, but if what you want is results, then this is the supplement would be something you’re after. Good for improved pumps, endurance, strength and focus.
