    Solid. Are you going to failure?

    If you go to failure you're not able to use the same weight and get the same number of reps for 3 or 4 sets.

    That's why I start with the highest weight, take it to or beyond failure and my second and or third set I decrease the weight and also go to or beyond failure. (I do have a training partner)

    This ofcourse after a good warm up, and 2 light warm up sets on my first exercise only.

    I did not notice any decreasing returns when I started doing less sets to failure. I seem to get the most when I am in control of the weiight and making the attempt to get the exercise to give me the most strain. That mind muscle connection you hear about seems to be the real key for me. Then it's a matter of how much pain I can take more than failure.

    Not really going to failure but once I start to cramp up and form gets a little shakey that's when I move on to the next lift. I don't often go to failure on my back, good observation. Never really noticed until now!

    Killer leg day, gonna post it up soon. Px black is nice, sweat real hard during my lifting session. At 3 caps a day, recommended dosages. If nething it looks like I got fatter cuz I've been working core and everytime I do it makes me look fat the next few days. I know that with px black on my side as well I will begin to lose some weight and water. Trying to have abs that really stick out so burning this belly fat is essential along with heavy lifts and ab exercises to help shape it out.

    First 2 pics were from today. 3rd was probably about 4 days ago. Hitting chest today. Going to swim soon after I lay out by the pool for a bit. After that steak I passed out for a quick half hour, lol Ted happened o.o! It was a good f#%$ I'll tell you that

    Thoughts on px black so far:
    -Keeps me focused at work
    -Good energy
    -Upsets my stomach sometimes
    -I can feel it churning in my stomach and gets a sharp pain when I get hungry, my stomach starts to growl
    -Burps after usage (I've burped after taking it multiple times... Sometimes it's a bad one though and I can taste the ingredients in the pill, really fricking bitter and nasty)

    I like the supplement a lot so far though, can't wait to see it help progress me in the following weeks to come.

    If you are taking it when waking on an empty stomach try having a meal about thirty mins later. I usually took mine with a protein shake in the morning seeing as how I get some acid reflux when taking supps on an empty stomach.

    What about eating and then about 1.5 hrs after taking the PX black? I know with some fatburners this helps ease the stomach discomfort.

    Interesting, and it sounds like your pill is not making it all the way down if you are burping and getting the taste of the actual ingredients. Could be the stomach issues are the stimulants acting on the stomach wall while in the digestion process causing some contraction around the undigested food? Perhaps try with a light meal, or shake if it is problematic and see if that helps.

    I will almost bet you are not drinking enuff water; many ppl take a sip and swallow, and figure that's that
    very important -- for ALL supplements -- that you drink plenty of water with it, to ensure not only avoidance of this problem, but also total efficacy of product

    Just got done lifting.
    Back Day:

    Bent over barbell rows:
    120x10
    120x10
    120x10
    120x10

    Rear delt flys:
    15x20
    15x20
    15x20

    Deadlifts:
    140x5
    170x5
    170x5
    170x5

    Hyperextensions:
    3 sets of 20 (bodyweight)

    Sidenotes:
    Decreased the weight on a lot of these lifts as you can tell with the low #s. Going for great form and a good squeeze on these workouts and as I said before, I'm new to back. I hate Deadlifting. I know some ppl live by it but I rly just don't like any aspect of it. Awkward form, hurts my wrist, holding the weight with my grip is harder than the actual movement. Today I rly dropped the weight on it until my form is good enough to put more weight on.

    okay I see a new thought process going on in here now...

    so my question this time is:
    looks like you have mastered the lifts, at those weights..what are you planning to do next workout?

    as for deads form, there are no shortage of "how-to" guides on youtube, if you don't wish to seek out some instruction in person..check them out

    Arms Day is tomorrow, bi's tri's forearms.. I do deads correctly but I really just don't enjoy the movement. Can't really explain it, just that I don't like them. I think they are still essential though so I do them anyways.

    Don't do them then. Rack pulls work just fine.

    PX Black hasn't had any influence on my stomach and my stomach has a freakn' attitude! Crazy how things effect people in different ways. Could it be you are not having a big enough drink of whatever with it?

    lol well that is one of the options surely
