Review of: High Volume
Purpose: Increase vascularity and pumps
Jam packed formula that will induce pumps and increase muscle vasodilation.
Well rounded formula that has everything and are all dosed properly recommended amounts.
Fairly priced for what you get.
- Mix of nitric oxide boosters for long lasting pumps
- Packs full 4 grams of citrulline and agmatine for enhanced performance boosters
- Increases muscle size and hardens nearly instantly
- Can be stacked with any stimulant based supplements
- Prevents vasoconstriction by enhancing blood flow
- Mostly disclosed ingredients
We Don't Like
- Artificial flavoring and coloring is used
- Small prop blend
Summary: Forget the burn.
High volume enhances vascularity and muscle size by literally forcing more blood and nutrients into the muscle.
The pumps can get be overwhelming at 2 scoops but can be used at 1-1.5 scoops.
High Volume is a non-stimulant pre workout, it can be stacked with virtually any stimulant based supplement (think fat burners and pre workouts that have less than 500mg of agmatine and 2g of citrulline
While this isn't a bad thing, there's a little too much reliance on stimulants here and really could use more of ergonomic ingredients like citrulline.)
Whether you want to get as pumped as possible or you have a big beach party ahead, get High Volume and experience swoleness like you never have before.
You’re probably agreeing with me and nodding your head when I say pumps are the best ever.
Who lifts and doesn’t enjoy it?
High Volume is a dream come true for us bro’s.
It’s true though….
Nitric oxide is one tough category of supplements.
Most companies fail to understand that a simple 1-2 formula of nitric oxide boosters are truly short lived and do not provide any long term benefits.
Packing a couple ingredients under a puny 1-3 gram proprietary blend.
Those supplements are always outshined and outlived by ones like High Volume.
Both are solid N.O. boosters but can High Volume outperform them?
Plasma Jet and HemaVO2 are both well formulated, but unfortunately HemvaVO2 has recently gone through a reformulation that may have made it a little less effective.
Plasma Jet is so powerful though that you are advised to limit it to 5 times a week.
High Volume combines a number of ingredients though that allow you to have long lasting pumps that keep you looking solid all day long.
This formula is not only going to increase vascularity, but muscle hardness and endurance as well.
High Volume Ingredients
High Volume features a simple but effective formula that combines traditional N.O. boosters with a few herbs and performance enhancing ingredients like citrulline and taurine.
It does not contain any stimulants so you can take it for late night training or if you’re just cycling off stims or you’re looking for something to stack with your hardcore pre workout.
Each bottle contains 36 scoops.
But if you’re taking 2 full scoops (14 grams of nitric oxide boosters!) then you’ll have 18 servings.
However most people find 1 to 1.5 scoops to be their sweet spot.
The dosages we’ll discuss below will be at 2 scoops.
Citrulline is a powerful endurance and pump booster that acts sort of like beta-alanine by removing the build up caused by ammonia and lactic acid.
Many N.O. boosters opt for citrulline malate but having citrulline alone is much more expensive (but effective).
If you want pumps, then this is how you start a formula.
This huge dosage of citrulline will increase vascularity, blood flow, help produce more energy and increase overall performance.
Malic acid combined with citrulline is much less effective.
There’s always so much malic acid in most supplements that you do not need more from the malate.
Citrulline will get you nasty pumps.
Taurine, along with the next 3 ingredients, are in a prop blend so the dosages are not disclosed.
But the total blend amounts to 3.7 grams.It would make sense if taurine was dosed at about 1 to 1.5 grams.
High Volume contains this conditionally essential amino acid for further pumps and endurance.
Taurine is stored in the heart, brain and skeletal muscle.
What this powerful amino acid does is that it draws nutrients and water into muscles, making it a very useful volumizing ingredient for increased pumps and endurance.
For further benefits, it also increases focus and brain function since it is stored in the brain.
HydroMax (Glycerol 65%)
Just like taurine, this is another water drawing ingredient that blows up muscles nearly instantly.
It can basically super hydrate (remember to drink a ton of water), and because of this, its benefits are endless.
You’ll get some “water-pumps” from this ingredient (but you’ll also get dry pumps and increased vasodilation <nitric oxide supplements> thanks to the nitrates and citruline in this formula).
Ferula Asafoetida Extract (95% Ferulic Acid)
Chances are, you’ve never heard or seen this ingredient before.
That comes to surprise as this is a fairly new ingredient to the supplement industry.
While it may be new, research proves that it can significantly increase strength, endurance, muscle mass and even recovery.
There are only a few supplements that currently have this ingredient.
But it shows PES is way ahead of most nitric oxide supplements as it is focused on overall performance, not only solid pumps.
Arginine Nitrate (NO3-T) (2G)
You probably know nitrates are effective and super potent vasodilators that can lower blood pressure and also has some benefits for the heart.
Nitrates can increase endurance by decreasing the body’s need for oxygen.
You’ll be much more efficient and have less fatigue throughout your workouts.
The awesome thing about arginine nitrate that differentiates it from other forms of nitrates, is that it has no tolerance build up.
Arginine can remarkably decrease tolerance to nitrates unlike the other forms.
This makes it to be one of the best pump inducers on the market.
There is a massive dose here.
So seeing how this dose is at 2 scoops, we can definitely guarantee you’ll still get nasty pumps at 1 to 1.5 scoops.
Do not mix this with heart medication or anything that can decrease blood pressure.
Agmatine Sulfate (1g)
Now if the above pump aids were not enough for you, then you will be beyond excited to see this full gram of agmatine sulfate.
This popular N.O. booster is in almost every quality pre workout nowadays.
You’ll get a full pump from citrulline and the other ingredients in here but combining everything with agmatine will get you even further with performance and pumps.
What this will do is keep nitric oxide levels elevated, while preventing it from breaking down.
It sustains N.O. levels by inhibiting arginase, the enzyme which degrades arginine in the body.Even at one scoop of High Volume, you’ll half a gram of agmatine along with the other ingredients in here.Most people will find two scoops to be overkill!
If you’re so into flavors, you’ll be happy to hear that there are 4 flavors available for High Volume.
The flavors available:Blue FrostCotton CandyParadise CoolerRaspberry LemonadeBy far the most popular flavor and our favorite is Cotton Candy, followed by Blue Frost.
The other 2 flavors are alright.
This isn’t another nitric oxide supplement that’ll last for a tiny bit of time.
High Volume is here to stay.
PES tends to make solid supplements that have a super long life on shelves.
In such a competitive category of supplements, this nitric oxide supplement is certainly among the top.
PES has successfully created a fully loaded non-stim pre workout that’ll not only elevate N.O. levels, but keep them elevated for long periods of time.
It is certainly going to increase strength, endurance as well as help with muscle gains and overall performance.
We recommend buying this over most pre workouts as it doesn’t need to be cycled and can be taken anytime without having it interfering with sleep (since it doesn’t contain stimulants).
So whether you’re a beginner or an advanced lifter, you’ll enjoy High Volume.
What are you waiting for…
Let’s bring on the volume!
Ready To Get Pumped?
PES has a solid nitric oxide supplement here. High Volume has been around for a few years now with a few reformulations but it is currently at its best so get it while it’s available everywhere.
Supplements With DMAA
Full dosage of beta alanine, lots of nitric oxide ingredients, and DMAA. What more could you ask for?
Not perfect for pumps, but great for energy and focus as it has DMAA and some nitrates.
