    feel free to correct this going forward, and make note of such please, thanks
    Cool. I did find that if I drank about a quart of water with the dose that I didn't have the stomach cramps or acid indigestion.

    Back Day 5/3/1 style: DL and good mornings.

    Playing with Max Pump and amount of water taken with it in order not to feel the stomach acid feeling. Yesterday it was 32 oz guzzled down. Today tried 16 oz: not enough. Tomorrow will try 20 oz.

    Back was tingling. No pump. Flush action in abs area. Endurance was high.

    I hope my stomach handles this well at I can't take that much water when going in stage.

    Squat Day 5/3/1: Squat and leg extensions.

    Revelation

    I just realized something with this workout, I've had very little DOMS since taking Max Pump.
    My lifts have been heavy and major but very little soreness.

    20 oz water with the dose makes this stomach acid feeling less noticeable. It really only lasts about 5 mins now.

    No pump for me and the abs and neck were tingling today.

    SO you are seeing a definite increase in recovery and stamina from the product even though you are not having the pump effect. So far I would say this is going well. Pumps are nice but the stuff getting to the muscle and effecting performance is much nicer!

    In the log run pump is just eye candy. I like freaking people out at the gym though wait till I get my hands on this and do my cocktail ... there will be eyes popping for sure.

    Feeling a little "left out" that I'm not getting the "pump" others are seeing but I'd rather have the endurance to lift some heavy azz shyte anyway! So you other beta testers can just take your pump and .....

    ...... back to writing PR's in my log! Smile

    if the pump is (as arnold says) like cumming..
    endless endurance & strength is like being able to cum over and over again
    (so no pump no worry - give me endurance to repeat anytime)

    okay well it sounded good when i thought of it

    Lol. Yeah that sounded better in your head.

    If this product is increasing recovery and endurance then a stack with Ignite would be a ton of fun. Finaflex preworkouts have always given me more endurance and stamina than Energy and pump which I love.

    Agree. Missing my Creatrona.

    Chest Day 5/3/1. Coming back from a left shoulder issue. Thought maybe it was rotator cuff related but it seems to be healing with 3 weeks of no chest pressing lifts. Antaeus Achilles really helped with healing. Still taking it.

    Decline Bench

    Holy Mackerel!! I've got the "pump"!!! I see chest veins!! Finally!!!

    16 oz of water with dose today = less stomach acid feeling.

    Arms Day. Took Max Pump with about 4 oz of my protein shake. A lot less stomach discomfort. Nothing else with it so as not to taint test. I'm missing my Creatrona though!

    CG bench
    145x5
    165x5
    185x5
    205x5
    225x2

    One Arm Preacher Curls
    40x5
    40x6
    40x5

    Triceps Kickback
    65x6
    65x6
    65x5

    Red flushed abs again with tingling but no pump. Anyone else craving carbs like it's going out of style?! I WANT carbs! Side note: my BP is normally 116/67. This morning after workout it was 130/78. I'm going to start tracking this.

    Question for you to ponder, are you possibly shortening your in between set rest periods due to feeling more recovered more quickly? This would be a sign of the ATP system being really kicked up a notch. If so it would also explain a rise in BP due to increased intensity via shorter rest periods.

    I train with a HR monitor. There is definitely faster recovery between sets compared to my "normal" with using Max Pump. The BP reading was taken 1 hour after workout. I'm going to monitor BP and HR for the next week. Nothing conclusive with just 1 reading.

    Got ya, I have never trained with a HR monitor. I typically don't check the ones while doing my cardio they always want me to slow down. SHEESH I am doing cardio baby not aerobics!

    I'm a nerd (engineer) and the HR monitor lets me know when I've recovered enough to do the next set. Funny sometimes I'm feeling "not ready" and the HR says "next". Lol

    Got that chest pump going today! No flushing and BP was normal 122/81 after workout. HR monitor is telling me that less rest is required between sets. Max Pump has something in it that helps with recovery.

    Boxer's Workout Day. Speed bag, heavy bag and crunches.

    This is my second cardio workout with Max Pump. Red flushing in abs today but no pump.

    Some observations:
    Since starting this beta I've had great sleeping patterns. Anything in here for sleep, I wonder.

    Stomach discomfort only lasts about 5 mins now. Still taking it in empty stomach with 16 oz water.

    DOMS is almost none existent.

    Recovery between sets continues to decrease. Almost makes me feel like I'm not putting in enough reps.

    I can't wait to see what's in this Max Pump.
