Some of the research behind Max-Stim training, and it's cousins Doggcrapp, C&P and Bulldozer, reveal that reps with limited rest are very good for growth. I've used this style for the better part of 16 (?) months now and I get pumps.
I dislike training with long rest between sets. I like hitting heavy weight, and beating a muscle while it's down. Mind you, I'm not trying to stump for a certain training style. I'm merely pointing out that many bodybuilding systems have pumps built into them indirectly, and they work just fine.
I've noticed this with GPDT also, i mean if your doing 7 reps in 5min using a near maximal weight it kinda figures you'll get a pump.
