My DY Nutrition NOXPUMP Pre Workout Review

My DY Nutrition NOXPUMP Pre Workout Review

My DY Nutrition NOXPUMP Pre Workout Review First Look:

Last night was a legs training session with my mate Max who I used to play rugby with.

Max is a mountain of a man and likes to go to a local gym that specializes in creating mutants, not fuck boys who video themselves pouting in the mirror.

It has dumbbells up to 330lbs and a massive array of plates, squat racks, barbells of different sizes and girths and is the best gym I have ever been to.

It is an immense space and has a real atmosphere.

With so many big lifters and real gym junkies there you do not want to look like an ass lifting the light weights.

Or just generally flouncing around uncontrollably.

With this real fear in mind, I wanted a pre workout that can help me destroy me workout and power me through the next grueling 90 minutes.

So, I reached for my stock of sachets and puled out this one from Dorian Yates’ supplement range.

This is a stimulant free supplement and was apple flavor.

Obviously by the time I came to open it the powder had hardened slightly, but when mixed with water and shaken hard it mixed well and tasted okay.

Ingredients: The Science

>RELATED: We’ve tried and tested the best pre-workout supplement HERE!

Niacinamide (Vit B3) – Higher amounts of niacin can improve cholesterol levels and lower cardiovascular risks and maybe symptoms for Alzheimer’s .

However, the jury is out on these real benefits.

Calcium – A study on rats concludes that it is of considerable importance of greater disposition of calcium in the skeleton.

Calcium is also able to help preserve testosterone levels.

Therefore, it is good for bone and teeth development.

However, this was tested on rats and injected, not an oral dose.

Beta-alanine  – Supplementation of this non essential amino acid aids the production of carnosine.

That’s a compound that plays a role in muscle endurance in high-intensity exercise.

That said, studies have not exactly been positive nor entirely conclusive.

Arginine-alpha-ketoglutarate (AAKG) – Tests on supplementation draw no real benefit that would not be found from resistance training itself.

Citric Acid – A compound that, in the body, is created for production of cellular energy via the TCA cycle.

Supplementation with it has not been shown to increase energy levels as enough is made by the body.

Taurine – It has been touted that Taurine can help mental performance.

Early clinical research suggested that taurine, in combination with caffeine, glucuronolactone, and B vitamins, can improve attention and reasoning in adolescents, but does not improve memory.

However, there is insufficient evidence to prove this is always the case.

Creatine – A well regarded supplement overall!

Supplementation increases creatine storage and promotes a faster regeneration of adenosine triphosphate between high intensity exercises.

These improved outcomes will increase performance and promote greater training adaptations.

Provided in the best pre workout we have tried, 4GAUGE.

L-Citrulline – This is used as a sports performance and cardiovascular health supplement. L-Citrulline supplementation results in reduced fatigue and improved endurance for both aerobic and anaerobic prolonged exercise.

An increase in growth hormone has been noted with exercise, but not at rest.

L-citrulline boosts nitric oxide production in the body.

Nitric oxide helps your arteries relax and work better, which improves blood flow throughout your body.

Supplementing can help lower blood pressure in people with pre-hypertension.

This is often found in the best pre workouts.

To supplement L-citrulline to enhance sports performance, take 6,000 – 8,000 mg of citrulline malate about an hour before exercise.

Vitamin B6 – Using it in its most natural form, pyridoxine, B6 is an essential nutrient to raising the body’s metabolism and aiding the fat burning process.

Glycine – Not considered an essential amino acid. Seems to be best at treating schizophrenia.

Glycerol – Seems to be most effective when administered rectally (in your ass) as a laxative.

Salt (sodium) – An essential mineral; its consumption is critical to our health. However, Americans plus a lot of Western countries do consume double the recommended daily intake.

Excess sodium may not raise blood pressure, but it is associated with other health issues, such as kidney damage and an increased risk of cognitive decline.

L-Tyrosine – Tyrosine is taken for depression, attention deficit disorder (ADD), attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), the inability to stay awake (narcolepsy), and improving alertness following sleep deprivation.

It is also used for stress, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, chronic fatigue syndrome(CFS).

Vitamin C – Its antioxidant properties mean vitamin C provides neuroprotective effects and benefits for blood flow.

By protecting the testes from oxidative stress, vitamin C can also preserve testosterone levels.


One sachet before your workout.

This would total 15g – which is a good amount.

In fact it compares well to many of the best pre workout supplements which will offer over 15,000mg.

Benefits & Effects:

There are five beneficial ingredients present.

However, that is from a total of fourteen ingredients. That’s not great.

Yet, lets take a look at these potentially beneficial nutrients which are included.

B6 is good for energy levels and has the added benefit of assisting with fat burn as it raises the metabolism.

Sodium is required to maintain a healthy level of salt which can be lost when you are sweating lots, your performance can suffer if you are low on salt.

Tyrosine helps with alertness and when you are feeling fatigued.

Citrulline increases nitric oxide levels and improve performance, not to mention an increase in growth hormone.

Creatine is able to help increase muscular size and strength.

How Did It Feel?

The taste wasn’t too bad and it mixed well with water, however, I didn’t feel a buzz or any strength or focus improvements.

I worked legs when I was in the gym and performed okay, most of the exercises I had not performed for at least six months or even a year.

I was squatting 3×3 308lbs which isn’t too bad I guess but quite a bit off my PB.



Okay, this only have five beneficial ingredients hen it comes to providing extra energy or power in your workout.

That means nearly two thirds of this product are deemed ineffective or have no studies proving that they are able to help increase strength, focus and performance.

However, it doesn’t end there, either.

This consists of a proprietary blend, that means that we have no idea how much of each ingredient is included within  the 15g dose.

Plus, ingredients such as Citrulline need at least 6000mg to be effective, otherwise it is a waste of time offering no benefit to our workout.

If you are not sweating profusely, all of that potential additional sodium may be come unhealthy, so it is advised that this is only taken if you will be sweating lots.

Creatine needs to be taken regularly and consistently for the best effects. You also need to be taking about 5g+.

My DY Nutrition NOXPUMP Pre Workout Review Conclusion:

This offers no stimulants, a proprietary blend and only five beneficial ingredients.

This does not thing really for performance or improve focus.

I didn’t really feel any benefit either.

Plus, there’s many common and effective ingredients that are found in many other pre workout supplements that this omits, such as:

  • Coconut water
  • Rhodiola
  • Carnitine
  • B12
  • Zinc
  • Beet
  • Caffeine
  • Theanine

There is a better product than this that will get you fired up and cause hell in your chosen sport.
