    You would need to keep using the muscle which isn't realistic to do all day everyday and would likely affect recovery.

    Pumps are a temporary effect caused by the blood rushing into the areas you are working out. When enough blood has concentrated, inflamed, and broken up the targeted muscle groups, it is time to stop the workout and allow the recovery process to begin which requires rest and energy - healthy carbs, fats, proteins. You should find it is too painful to resume the same workout the next day. If you tried to obtain an impressive pump the next day then you could negatively affect the repair process e.g. like bursting the stitches of a wound. Your muscles need time to heal. If you really want to achieve a pump the next day then you could try a few sets of push-ups or isolation exercises with plenty of water to increase blood flow, but I really would not recommend anything that would impede the recovery process after a hard workout.

    Look in the mirror after you get a 'pump'. Then set your goal to be in the next year to look like that - without having a pump. Use it is a "goal set' to be consistent with your lifting and nutrition. It's a long term thing, NOT a short term.
