    My food intake for that day was pretty poor in regards to how much I ate. I like to eat 2-3 meals before I train (I only had one smaller meal).

    I'll be trying this at least 5 more times. I need to heal up and see how things go with a larger muscle group.

    Be back with more updates
    Awesome man.. but sorry about the jaw pain! Its the fullness i care about most. Fullness makes me stronger.. vascularity just gets me attention haha

    Since most pwo's are suggested to be taken on an empty stomach, just curious when you would dose maximize intense in all this?

    I always take my maximize intense at the same time as my hemavol. I just mix em together so I don't have to drink two different things

    Thanks. That's what I do now, just didn't know if the soup would make the maximize intense any less effective. I love the hemavol/MI combo pre-workout! Just stocked up on the hemavol/compete deal from another site, excited to try this little protocol.

    If its 143 per cap which I believe it is, 1 cap should be fine. I truly find the sale most valuable. Keep me updated bro!

    I appreciate your response bro. thats a great deal with the Hemavol/Compete. Compete has been a staple, really like the hydration aspect. Been using Hemavol for a bit, but never really felt the "pump", whether using hemavol, bulk ingredients, or any other product. Im hoping this will do the trick so i can see what everyone gets excited about

    Thank you sir!

    Food + blood pumps are essential to maximum fullness and vascularity imo. The last part with the candy is essential as well!!

    I used marshmellows instead of candy and works just as well. Candy gives me a tummy ache and I felt like I could've kept lifting. I love the carb overload.

    haha no no bulk bcaa's, i made that mistake before.....i have a tub of recoverpro, half tub of recoverpro, and a tub of those bcaas from athletic xtreme.....i think mixing them in with something a bit more complete in terms of intra workout like compete will just make everything that much better

    as i stated in another thread, i got a free jug of size on max....i think the size on and compete together will be a really amazing intra workout drink to aid in adding some good weight, probably start that in october

    I can't do bulk bcaa's I made that mistake as well haha. But maybe the Compete would overpower the taste?
