How long can one maintain a pump? Is there any benefit to maintaining one for a long time or is it just extra strain on the heart? I was stuck at the gym longer than usual last time, i had long finished my workout but figured i may as well keep lifting until i could leave...ended up lifting for like 2 1/2 hours and was barely able to lift anything lol. But i wondered is there any benefit to maintaining a pump for extended periods of time? Or once you exert your muscles to a point(a normal workout), will lifting further do nothing more than wear out your joints?
Also, do you think there is any benefit to doing a certain movement until pumped many times a day? For example doing a movement in my office to work my bis/side delts until pumped every hour or so( Grin) or is it pointless and less effective than doing a single typical workout for the same muscle groups?

all that happens is that you essentially train the pump away.

All a pump definitively means is that there is excessive blood in the muscle. Since blood carries oxygen and nutrients for delivery, I would consider this a good thing insofar as "feeding" the muscle tissue. However, a specific rep range is required for hypertrophy, so don't think that a pump is ALL that you need.

the Body adapts very fast to a Stimulus. I have even noticed a pump with 5 reps! i was very surprised but after 3 sets of 5 reps Benches i got a pump in my chest, i then dropped to 3 reps with more weight on my last set.

I've experienced this phenomenon, as well. I believe part of it may have to do with my pre-training nutrient intake. Carbs seem to help facilitate a pump for me even at lower reps.
