SNS was kind enough to hook me up with a 3 day supply of Agmatine.
According to Synapsin -
I did just that. And I got the results! Noticeably better pumps. The fatigue factor set in later than it usually would in my workouts. Pretty sweet.
This review is from a couple days ago, just forgot to type it up.
Tried Agmatine 1 hour pre-workout. I actually felt that it worked better with this timing. Enhanced pumps, compared to last time. I trained arms - and they were FULL. Since I am on a low calorie diet, pumps aren't the best - but Agmatine has helped.
Antihero, thanks man for the few days worth of samples that you've sent over my way. I'm always excited to try a new pump product! No frills-here she goes as straight forward as possible.
I swallowed 4 caps with a mouthful of water about 45 minutes before leaving for the gym. I had only one meal prior and that was almost two hours before taking the Agmatine. Shoulders were on the menu so I was already expecting amazing results.
I warmed up with a few minutes of light stretching and some lateral raises and honestly....I was already getting pumped. I always start very light and work my way up with shoulders to avoid injury.
standing dumbbell lateral raise-5'sx15/15'sx12/25'sx10/30'sx8/25'sx8/10'sx12!
These babies set me on fire! The pump was nearing painful...
dumbbell shoulder press (seated)-55'sx12/65'sx8/60'sx10!
I wish I would have taken a picture or made video of this! I could see striations all over my delts, and I'm nowhere near cutting! My shoulders were poppin' like freakin' boulders-no lie.
cambered bar upright row-75x10x3
NUMB! I almost felt like I was just going through the motions because I was so pumped that my shoulders pretty much went numb. At one point I could even feel my hands/forearms starting to get all tingly.
Smith machine shrug-225x12x3
Perfect way to finish the routine. I was trapped up like Bill Goldberg in this mutha fukka! I have two more servings so I'll try to remember to bring the camera next time. This I can already say, after just one sample---Agmatine works!
Yesterday I dosed all 4 caps. two hours after my first meal, 1 hour before I hit the gym. This is not the way for me. I could most certainly feel the pumps coming on STRONG but....I felt like I was starving halfway through my daily pounding! I mean my stomach was full-on roaring at me. I had to sip water between every set just to settle it a bit. The pumps were strong indeed though it was hard to focus on that when my brain kept yelling at me to eat something!
Today is my last day of reviewing samples, I originally planned to log the bottle that I just ordered but I have been called upon to log another product for somebody else.....maybe I'll just hang on to the bottle and log it later (I have some crazy synergy/stacking ideas).
Oh yeah, I had half my dose (2 caps-duh) before breakfast and I just popped the other two so I'm off to the gym in 45!Originally Posted by patricksushi1st dose - Took 4 pills 45 mins preworkout (will try 4 pills 1 hour preworkout next time). Pumps were pretty sick. I am currently taking C-Bol by Thermolife (which already gave me sick pumps) but stacking it with Agmatine made the pumps feel amazing.
Next time I'll try and lay off the C-Bol for a day to see what the Agmatine can do alone.
I will also note the vascularity in my next entry because it was hard to judge it when working out my back
2nd Dose : Took 4 caps alone this time 1 hour prior to working out. With my preworkout drink (App Nut's LIT UP).
Today was tricep and chest day, definitely saw some nice vascularity but pumps were not as good as the ones I get from Nitrates. I will probably end up stacking C-Bol and the Agmatine for my last dose because the pumps I get from them are amazing. It's very good for mind-muscle connection.
Took 4 caps of agmatine 1 hour preworkout and 6 caps of C-Bol 30 mins following. Pumps were extremely insane... I don't think I should do that again because it made the biceps painful to work out hahaha. But that is a good sign that it works! Sick vascularity!!
1st I want to thank antihero for sending me some samples of Agmatine out of his own stash. That says a lot about this product right there that antihero would do this.
I took my 1st dose (4 pills) yesterday (Sun) an hour before my workout. I did Legs and Back. I felt a pretty decent pump going in my lats from the pull-ups, not much in my upper legs but got a hellava pump in my calves.
SCORE 9/10 got a nice pump from this supplement and could actually see a difference in my chest.
Would I buy this supplement Yes, at 20 bucks a bottle, thatís approximately $1.00 a serving (4 pills) not bad at all. The added pump is nice but the long term effects make this even better.
Thanks again to antihero for sending me out some samples to try.
Over all I think this is a very solid product. I feel that supplement companies underulilize it tremendousely (VERY few even use it). The pumps were insane (at times painful ) and I did notice a bit of extra endurance. The price point of ~$20 for 90 caps is very reasonable for what it delivers. I probably will not pick up a bottle until this summer just because while in school it is tough to dose it properly (unless you're poping pills in class). If you've never tried this product I highly recommend that you pick up a bottle, you won't be disappointed.
Cliffs: JUST BUY IT!

Agmatine comes in pill form so the taste is not to worry about.
4 Pills taken 45 minutes out from my lifting sessions.
I would give this product a solid 8.5/10. You get a fantastic pump that lasts for about 4 hours after your workout. I used them on chest/tri day before a photo shoot and was looking nice a full pumped for the shoot.
Should you try it??
It's definitely worth a try atleast once, and hey if you don't like it then don't get it again. It works well though, buy if you enjoy pumps, if not then stay away.
Thanks for the oppurtunity SNS!First off I would like to thank the amazing guys at SNS for the agmatine samples. I used my first sample (4 caps) today preworkout in place of my usual ultima+pumpbol. Needless to say, the agmatine had huge shoes to fill.
Effects: 9/10 (ultima-bol=10/10)
Here is an honest list of the effects that I felt from agmatine (no placebo):
-Elevated Pump. I did full body as usual, and I must say the pumps in my lats and calves were absurd. Bigger than when on pumpbol. IDK what it was but those areas in particular would blow up after just one set.
-Endurance. It was nice. I wanted to stay in the gym and keep working, but I had to stop myself because my routine centers around high frequency low volume training. Also, intraset recovery was great. I felt ready to go and actually cut my usual workout time by 20 minutes. Good stuff.
-No GI Issues! The greatest flaw of ultima-bol is I can feel it regurgitating during heavy sets. No such issues here.
So there's the review of workout #1. 2 more to follow. If these results keep up, I am buying a tub of this stuff once my pumpbol is out.
Question to SNS reps: Are there any muscle building properties to agmatine, or is it solely for ergogenic benefit?
