I just had a quick question about Universals Animal Pump. I have read all the reviews I can find on it and there's nothing but good yet the only question I can't really find is about the side effects. I currently use Whey Protein and BSN Cellmass which I like the flavor of and I used to use BSN NO-Xplode but even the smallest does upset my stomach causing diarrhea so I had to leave it behind. Animal Pump sounds very promising but if I can't handle NO-Xplode will my stomach be able to handle Animal Pump? Maybe it's the caffeine that upsets my stomach because I used to get that jittery feeling as well and I can only stand about one cup of coffee which I drink once in a blue moon. Please let me know or give me an a good alternative because I feel like I'm missing out on a lot for better muscle gain, hell right now I'm taking Hot Rox Extreme for just the energy alone before a workout because it's the only thing that I can tolerate and even though it's a "weight loss" pill they claim it doesn't kill all the muscle but I would sure love to stop taking it cause I'm sure it kills enough muscle to detour all my hard work in the gym. Thanks for any help.

Animal Pump Side Effects?

Holy run on batman...... To answer your question, the main side effect is the "anabolic dumps" whereby you have to take a dump considerably more often than normal and the consistency is a lot softer. When I took it this effect was not not relevant in light of the strength gains I noted. Some others may have reported other sides that I don't recall either, though I think most of them were caused by not eating enough carbs.

I've only had good results from AP. No upset stomach, or the 'runs' or any stomach issues. I take it on an empty stomach like suggested though. I also take out the red (caffeine) pill on my off days, and double up on them on my on days.Me Squatting 405X5

i think animal pump has less caffeine than NOxplode but the pumps are stronger. How many scoops of NOxplode where you taking? i would only take 1.5 scoops of NOxplode when i would work out just cause the caffeine would be too much for me. i noticed no side effects with animal pump.
The good thing with animal pump is that if you don't want caffeine with your work out, you just don't take the red pill
