AlphaMax Final Review:
Sleep: This was the first thing I noticed. It didn't take long for the L-DOPA/ZMA combo to kick in. I am someone who suffers from anxiety at night. Most nights I will stay awake for hours tossing and turning, worrying about life issues. With AlphaMax I was out like a light. I never had time to toss and turn. I can easily say, this was the best sleep I have had in years. In fact the night of my wife's latest surgery, I was nodding off, while she was lying there in pain, I almost got in big trouble for not helping her.
Strength: Here is another place AlphaMax shines. We already no the profile is solid, so strength increase should not be a surprise. Even though I didn't get to run the product the way I hoped, I could tell that with all the missed workouts my strength did not fall off at all. At beginning of log I was running the rack on Biceps day starting with the 60lb DB's and struggled, last week I was able to easily start with 70's. I know 10lbs doesn't seem like much, but that was after missing workouts, and not being in rhythm so to speak.
I know Artimistane really kicks in around week 3 or 4, running this product 8 weeks would be ideal. I believe on an 8 week run I could match my PR's that I hit running ABE/EPro last June.
Libido: This was a tough one to judge for me. I noticed an increase a week or 2 in, but then with all the stress and things going on, I never really had time to think about it. I know for me personally Artimistane lowers my libido, others get the opposite effect. It was not crushed though, the 3,4 and L-DOPA kept it evened out. I bet some people will get a huge Libido boost. The few times I got to take advantage in this category I did not an awesome decrease in refractory time. That is a big plus for a 35 year old like myself. No one wants to wait around for ever for the 2nd round!
Stress: Here is where I need some gurus to chime in. The entire month I was dealt bad news. My wife's stuff, having to buy a new car, having to drop $2,400 to repair a car, medical bills, etc, etc. Usually I would go super Alpha and want to smash everything in site. I would want to punch walls, throw stuff, etc. However, on AlphaMax the entire time I had a real calm overall sense of well being. I never blew up once. Could one of you guys tell me what part/parts of AlphaMax attributed to that? I loved it!
Body Changes: My plan was to run high protein/ moderate carb diet around 2300 cals. In true fat guy fashion that didn't happen. I was never home at night enough to cook decent meals, I relied on a lot of fast/convenient foods. Some nights me wife wanted to eat her favorites to try to make herself forget what was going on. Overall there was no diet. However, my weight stayed the same. No noticeable increase in bodyfat, I actually looked a little leaner in upper body/shoulder area. Even though the goal was to lose weight, at this point I would call that a BIG WIN!
Overall: I can tell that this will be a product that I will run multiple times. I had picked up a bottle from a sale, and was going to run 8 weeks. However, I have decided to take few weeks off of supplements. I will be grabbing more AlphaMax during the black Friday sale, then doing an 8 week run where I can better utilize it. The stacking combos are endless with this product, I have some pretty awesome ideas. With the end of a very popular AI coming in January, I hope a lot of people grab AlphaMax and try it out. It is one of the best all in one products I have seen in long time.
