    Reasons for not getting a decent pump?

    As the title says I am not getting the same crazy pumps as I use to, I'm eating about 250-300 carbs throughout the day before hitting the gym getting plenty of protein and am well hydrated throughout the day. I train in a 3x12 rep range reaching failure each set, this has only started happening after I finished my first cut and it is very frustrating as it is not as satisfying going to the gym everyday.

    Maybe you haven't replaced all lost glycogen just yet. Or maybe you are just accomodating the training.

    Pump is a fun side effect but is not an indication that your training is working or not. What's more important is - do you regularly add more reps, more weight or more total sets? Progressive overload.
