The primary benefits associated with Glycerol supplementation are due to its ability to draw water into muscle cells, thus creating a noticeable pump and helping to maintain cellular hydration status during long-duration exercise.
360 Pump contains 1500mg of HydroMax which is certainly toward the higher end of the range we generally see in pump pre-workouts. At this dose, users may certainly experience some notable pumps, though whether there is any performance enhancement benefit likely depends on the duration of exercise.
Agmatine has been shown, in vitro, to increase the activation of Endothelial Nitric Oxide Synthase, an enzyme primarily responsible for catalyzing the production of Nitric Oxide in Endothelial Cells.
Although it hasn’t been studied in humans nearly as extensively as many other pump enhancing ingredients, the preliminary evidence is certainly in favor of Agmatine as a pump enhancer.
Anecdotal evidence suggests it is effective at doses of 500-1500mg with 360 Pump containing the lower end of that range (500mg).
Norvaline, like Agmatine, hasn’t been extensively researched, but preliminary research indicates it may be an Arginase inhibitor. Arginase is the enzyme responsible for the degradation of Arginine which limits the amount of Arginine available for Nitric Oxide production. Theoretically, by decreasing the activity of Arginase, Norvaline can indirectly increase Nitric Oxide production, but this is far from proven in humans.
360 Pump contains a pretty standard dose of Norvaline (100mg), in-line with other Norvaline-containing pump pre-workouts.
The Bottom Line
360 Pump contains a few ingredients that may induce some extra pumps during your workout, but it is far from the best out there. With the recent increase in the number of superior offerings in the pump-augmenting pre-workout category, we just don’t see much of a reason to reach for 360 Pump.
