    Ok so I ended up eating a sub for meal 4

    meal 5 was pasta with myofusion


    anyway onto the important stuff

    I took 2 scoops MaximizeV2 with 7 grams leucine around 915 pm, after I got home from work
    Got to the gym around 935-945

    here are the workout stats

    ( Note ...During high rep weeks I follow a 3 count down, one count up rep pace)

    Flat Bench Pres
    (warm up) : 135x 15
    set 1 : 225 x 12
    set 2 : 245 x 10
    set 3: 265 x 8
    set 4: 275 x 6
    ....I tend to get angry when I am disapointed in my weights and do "Punishment sets"
    set 5: 225x 8 These are done till failure and within 30 seconds
    set 6: 135 x4

    * At this point my chest was already pumped at set 2....on fire by the last two "punishment sets" *

    Incline Barbell Bench
    warm up : 135x15 .....My chest was still pumped to the point where these intense
    set 1 - 155 x 8
    set 2- 165 x 6
    set 3 - 175 x 8
    set 4 - (punishment set) 135 x 6

    * ok at this point i was like wtf Im super pumped and thats awesome, but these weights are rediculously low for me....kind of mad but my chest was so pumped I went to look in the mirror......Now first of all, I have slight striations in the middle of my chest where the pec inserts into the sternum.... and when I flex I can generally see decent seperation of my upper and middle pecs....

    The thing was i was so pumped while standing unflexed I could see slight seperation of my upper pecs....I have never seen this while unflexed in myself....I wish i could show u guys (if anyone even reads this log) but I dont have a camera.....

    anyway back to sets

    Dips
    set 1: bodyweight x 8
    set 2 : bodyweight x 9
    set 3: bodyweight x 6

    Dips are normally a strong point but my chest and tris are pumped at this point....I tried to do some light pulldowns throught the workout to loosen and strech my pecs and I noticed a slight pump in my bis as well

    DB pullover
    set 1 - 65 lbs x 12
    set 2 - 85 lbs x 6
    set 3 - 75 lbs x 6 (literally failed and dropped weight)

    * normally can pull 100-110 for 5 reps*

    SuperSet Cable Crossover with Machine flys
    CC set 1 = 30 lbs x 12
    MF set 1 = 100 lbs x 8
    CC set 2 - 40 lbs x 15
    MF set 2 - 120 lbs x 10
    CC set 3 - 50 lbs x 5
    MF set 3 - 140 lbs x 5

    My chest moved beyond pumped to sore.... normally I like to pose after sets...more to get a final pump and get a good muscle mind connection, It got to the point where I couldnt really flex my pecs effectively

    So my ratings for the day

    Smell 9/10: It reminds me of Lemon Lime Gatorade Powder ( brought back glory days of HS football

    Taste: 7/10: It actually tasted to me like the lemon lime gatorade powder....but if u put too much powder and not enough water..... I used 10 oz for 2 scoops with is below recommended water use

    Energy: definite increase in energy very smooth, not jittery but very intense.. a tiny bit of beta A tingle but not distracting.....

    Energy rating 9/10....... 10 being the first time i tried the original jacked

    * Note That was the first time I was every exposed to Geranium oil....but I would rate Maximize energy more positive then Jack3d minus the Beta A tingle*

    Pump: 9/10...... 10 being the one time I did back with 2 bottles of Fasttwich and 5 caps NanoX9

    *Note....This was the best Pump Ive ever had doing chest for what its worth*

    Vascularity 10/10 ....I very rarely get the veins in my sholder and lat to actually visible stick out....normally i can see them but they dont bubble up like the did to day.....

    I would rate vascularity just about par with Black Powder, maybe slightly more

    Other things to consider : I am returning from a week off lifting all together.....When I take a week off i TAKE THE WEEK OFF....I dont worry about diet or anything....

    Numbers could be effected by week off, poor diet for the last week and today, fist time ive had any NO products in a week, generally numbers are lower first couple lifts, pumps more intense.

    I will be doing back tomorrow....however the numbers may also be low as i work 11 hours tomorrow 930 am to 830 pm

    Overall I am very pleased so far with the product.....

    Tomorrow we will see how good of a pump I can get, Generally with a good product I can get my lats to feel like they are going to tear off my spine make it almost painfull to fully put my arms down

    ****NOTE I am not sponsored by any company, I did NOT recieve MaximizeV2 as a free offer....In fact I had to go to another site to get it at 19.99. I have never been sponsored by any supplement company so my results are not swayed***

    any q's feel free to ask...just dont be a jerk and bash my numbers please

    Energy was good....im not sensitive at all to stims....and for using geranium on and off for a while I was pleased that I felt such a positive energy....

    the best way to describe it is like when ur driving and ur like staring at things like license plates and buildings that u normally just ignore and go on autopilout.... if this makes any sense


    I did start to feel like I needed to slow down because I was moving threw sets a little quicker then I would like

    Definately equal to or better the Jack3d.....

    once again if u've never been exposed to geranium 2 scoops may blow ur mind.....I dont know the exact mgs they use for the geranium...but it feels like much more then the caps u can get at NP

    I know what you mean by having to slow down. My workout partner was like WTF dude relax a second here. I have only taken 1 1/2 scoops but I might try 2 for legs on Friday. I really don't think I will need it though. I was plenty happy where I was.

    nice job


    I'll be following along dude. It looks like you guys are having similar positive results that I have had. I'm doing a cut right now and I've been "trying" to incorporate fasted cardio in the mornings. I took 1 1/2 scoops this morning and felt great mood wise, and went 5 minutes past my goal time of 30 minutes. I hope these results keep up.

    I am going to start a morning cardio log soon with Maximize to log how well it works getting me going in the morning since it takes a lot to get me into the gym in the morning Good luck!

    Sorry this might be a shorter review for the day I worked from 930 am- 830 pm, lifted, and have an interview i have to get up for around 545 to get ready for tomarrow for a second job...

    upon waking: 3 g Arginine, 5 grams Creatine Mono
    Meal 1 : 2 PBJ's on wheat, one bowl cheerios, one banana, 1 scoop Nitrocore
    ( eggs give me heartburn)
    snack 1 : 1 scoop Myofusion in milk, 2 granola bars

    Meal 2: Two ham and cheese sandwiches

    Snack 2: Myofusion with milk

    Meal 3 : Pasta, with hambuger meat

    snack 3: G series Pro Protein Recovery shake ( 30 g Protein, 65 carb)

    Meal 4 : Pasta

    Snack 4: Myofusion with milk

    Got off work at 830, got home and mixed up Maximize with some extra Creatine and leucine

    Taste: 5/10.... ok I liked it yesterday....but today I was kinda dreading it...the flavor just sounds so good its kinda disapointing, I would have given it a 6 cuz its not really bad... but Throughout the workout if I burped at all I could taste it again ( only using water intraworkout)

    Energy: 9/10
    - I was really suprised at the energy level since i was almost falling asleep driving home, after two scoops I was ready to go

    ok Ill go thro workout first then explain the rest

    BACK

    Pullups ( I lean very far back, as close to parallel to the floor as I can, I get a better contraction)

    set 1- 6 x bdyweight
    set 2 -6 x bdyweight
    set 3- 8 x bdyweight

    *I am still kinda stiff from chest yesterday, nice feeling though, but my shoulder hurts a little.... I have a lingering shoulder injury that mainly hurts when I completely relax my shoulder and either hang, or let a bar hang (like shrugs)

    Wide Pulldowns
    set 1 = 12x 70
    set 2 = 13 x 100
    set 3 - 16 x 110
    set 4= 200x 5

    * i got a good pump around set 3 ...I like to go lighter with these and really go slow....3 down pause 2 up*

    Barbell Shrugs:
    (tried to loosen my shoulder)
    set 1 - 10x 135 lbs
    set 2 - 12 x 135
    set 3 14 x 95
    DB shrugs
    set 1 - 35 x 12
    set 2 - 45 x 8
    set 3 55 x 8

    * i know these are really low weight, but my shoulder sears with pain when I let it fully relax in the down position, I try to go light weight and hold contractions at the top to make up for weight*

    Traps got very pumped

    Bent over row: (smith machine)
    12 x 90
    8 x 110
    6 x 130
    * stuggled with these, my back was really pumped and I try to get full contraction, just to swollen to get it really(

    One arm Seated row
    12x 90
    6x 100
    7 x 110

    *solid pump....but I started feeling low on fuel....not energy but the feeling u get from not eating enough solid food for the day...definetely felt weak but still had energy so its my fault not the supplement

    One arm Standing cable row
    ( i dont know if this is the name or if anyone else does this.....I go to the cable crossover machine, set the pin at right above shoulder hight....stand back a few feet....get into a linbacker stance but with back slightly more strait... and really focuse on pulling back and down to focus on where lat inserts into oblique...I rotate my hips ever so slightly as to increase range of motion)

    10 x 40 lbs
    12 x 60 lbs
    6 x 100 lbs
    12 x 80 lbs

    Back hyperextensions
    12 x bdy
    12x bdy
    8x bdy

    I felt a little weak today because i didnt get to eat how i wanted
    Stims felt a little more intense today, at one point i got kind of queezy....probably because i was starving for food

    Pump 8/10 today I got good pumps in the middle of my workout, they faded a little as my intesity did because i was hungry, still have a good pump in the middle of my back, i would like to see more of a pump in the outer part of my lats

    Vascularity 8/10 I felt a little dehydrated today, once again the veins in my lats visible stuck out some today which doesnt normally happen, not the most ever tho.....My bis where suprisingly not very pumped or extremely vascular....But thats probably good and means i had decent form

    Overall a good day considering my diet was bad and i was dead tired before I got to the gym


    Note.... I-force....you might want to consider changing the lid on Maximize to a silver like color to match the label, white looks a little out of place

    Tomorrow is leg day and I have all day to rest and eat....I normally top my legs out with a leg press of anywhere from 1300- 1435 lbs....see what happens...either ill destroy that number or my legs will be to pumped to get that heavy


    Thanks for the support.....overall I still rate this as my favorite PreWO....Better energy then Black Powder, Jack3d or NoXplode...... On par with vascularity with Black powder, maybe a little better

    CG, have you tried doing BB shrugs with an underhand grip? My shoulder kills me when at the bottom of shrugs but now using an underhand grip I'm good to go.

    Looking good bro! Maximize might give you more energy than black powder but it doesn't come close to looking as cool as that black powder container!

    Ok sorry i didnt post last night but heres a recap

    PreWo = MaximizeV2 + leucine

    Taste- 7/10 .... I increased my water to 17 ounces...it tasted WAY better, but I think the slight chemical taste may be due to Geranium oil..if uve ever bitten a cap open u know how bad it is

    Leg Press ( 45 degree sled)
    set 1 - 480 x 15
    set 2 - 840 x 12
    set 3- 1020 x 10
    set 4 1200 x 8

    ....Could have gone higher weight but I want to keep my reps up first few weeks
    Nice solid energy ....had tons to lift, was worried about knees and hipflexors and building stamina tho

    Seated Hamstring curls
    set 1 70 x 25
    set 2 - 110 x 15
    set 3 - 130 x 12
    set 4 160 x 6

    My hammies were on fire....nice solid feeling


    Calves ( on hack squat machine)
    set 1 (toes in) 180 x 15
    set 2 (toes in ) 270x 10
    Set 3 (toes straight) 270 x 12
    set 4 ( toes straight) 320 x 8

    Calves got a solid painful pump....nice to get doesnt always happen...did notice vein in calves sticking out

    Straight leg deads
    set 1 135x 15
    set 2 135 x 12
    set 3 135 x 10

    I really just do these to stay loose, IDK i have pretty weak hammies and they get strained very easily

    Squat
    135 x 15
    225 x 12
    275 x 10
    315 x 6

    My legs were completely shot at this point...I like to go to parallel but It was hard....my calves were still pumped and quads were still on fire


    Energy 8/10 once again i was tired before I got to the gym...not after i took Maximizev2.....definite kick in the ass energy....I could have easily PR ed on LP if i wanted to go low rep

    Vascularity 9/10 supprisingly I noticed that my forearms were pumped and vascular from hauling the 45's around and I got some sweet veiny calves at the end


    Going to do Bi's right now....First week not bad considering Im still not quite used to the lactic acid build up that comes with the first week.......

    MaximizeV2 definitely gives u a kick in the ass....U wont cheat and leave the gym early i promise

    pump- 7/10 I had a good pump while i was working out but it did fade pretty early....it was a leg day though

    I'm glad you liked the flavor better with the added water. I like the taste of V2 much better over V1. Just as a comparison, some of my favorite tasting pre WO's are Scivation Vasocharge and MST Ragnorok. I like the formula of both V1 and V2 but I really do enjoy the smooth energy and focus that I get from V2 better.

    So far this has been my favorite thing about it. I have used it a couple of times before basketball along with some added beta alanine and LCLT (from Anavite) and my endurance has been awesome. The energy to get through my workout and added endurance to work out even longer.

    Good stuff in here, keep up the good work.

    Besides the energy it gives me, my favorite attribute of the V2 is the taste. I've been doing a lot of fasted cardio here lately and I need something that's easy on the stomach early in the morning.

    I never tried the V1. What's the difference between the 2?

    Quite a bit actually, the stims and amounts, BCAA content, creatine type, flavor. I usually just slam about 20-25g of BCAA's when I do fasted cardio in the morning. The carb content of MV2 is very low so maybe I'll have to try that out too.

    update from fridays lift:

    I did Bi's Tri's and Shoulders....I didnt write down the numbers as i had to hurry to make it to my brothers birthday party, and then travel to my g/f college that night before her graduation

    rep ranges 10-15

    I giant set three exercises at a time
    4 sets tri extension
    4 sets bb curls
    4 lateral raises

    4 sets tri rope pushdown
    4 set seated curls
    4 set seated bb shoulder press

    4 set reverse grip bench
    4 set hammer curl
    4 set arnold presses

    The taste is much better with 16-17 ounces of water 7/10 ( i think my favorite taste of all time was the original Jacked when it tasted like sierra mist....I kinda liked the premade fasttwitch taste too)

    Pump and Vascularity.... 10/10 !! Ill put it this way....my triceps felt like they were going to burst throw my arm when i was at the top of my bb curls.... I noticed more veins then ever before.... my arms looked visuable larger and my triceps actually visually looked somewhat tensed while relaxed

    great product ....I think ill log one more week to see how numbers are with less lactic acid

    haha its a much different feeling trying to squat after your legs are fatigued...ur numbers are not high, and its a much tougher thing mentally to give it ur all and try to go high rep because u want to just rack it so bad, but i like to go lighter weight and just go till ur about to break, it also makes sure i dont skip any lifts cause no one wants to finish a leg workout without squatting

    I probably should have went for a pr I have gotten 1430 for one or two reps and I could have passed it but my knees felt a little weak from work and I kinda want to ease my body back in the first week

    Yeah for me its mainly mental i want to just stop so quick because my legs arent used to being fatigued while squatting....i feel like legs in general are mental there have been times where ive gotten 405 easy and other times where i dont even want to unrack it

    I did chest today

    PreWo just 2 scoops MaximizeV2 + creatine

    Taste 7/10..... I know its gotten some higher reviews for taste but Idk my tastebuds are different...went with 20 ounces today...a little to much to drink for my liking....15-17 seems better

    Bench Press
    set 1 15x 135 lb
    set 2 12 x 225 lb
    set 3 12 x 245 lb
    set 4 10 x 255 lb
    set 5 6 ( +2 forced) x 275
    set 6 (21's) of 135

    Had a decent pump going , not extreme but I dont normally get a huge pump until i do more isolate exercises...but still had a better then average pump going....felt pretty strong

    Incline
    set 1 10x 135
    set 2 12x 155
    set 3 10 x 185
    set 4 3 x 225
    set 5 12x 135

    Chest felt very beat, had nice pump when I was flexing inbetween sets....had that nice tight feeling even when relaxed

    Dips
    8x bdw
    8x bdw
    8xbdw

    My shoulder started to flare up on these, I lean way over my hands...but my chest was still tired as well

    DB Pullover
    12x 65
    10x 75
    8x 85

    cable cross over (Super Set) with Underhand raises

    Cable
    17x 30
    12x 60
    6x 8

    Underhand
    12x 10 lb
    12x 15 lb
    8x 20 lb

    Chest had good solid pump still....energy still high, was trying to watch my rest between sets so it wasnt too quick

    Machine Flys ( done very slow 4-5 seconds each way with 1-2 second pause at contraction)

    15x 60 lb
    10 x 80 lbs
    6 x 100 lbs


    Overall Energy 8/10....I had a meal a little closer to lifting time then i would have like I think it delayed onset of Maximize

    Pump 7/10 It was still solid and ranks up there with most preWO, but today it wasnt as intense as before

    Vascularity 11/10 Ok I didnt notice untill I went to do some poses ( i do them more to stimulate max muscle fibers, not to show off or anything) ....But when I was doing a most muscular i noticed that I had a little bunch of veins directly inbetween my pecks on the Sternum that I NEVER saw before....and they were definately sticking out....The veins in my lower neck and where the Delt meets the chest were also sticking out incredibly

    I was pleased....i thought about telling my g/f....but shed probably freak out and say thats gross lol!

    and My intercostals were showing very nice

    Pump 8/10
    I got a good pump while working out, but It didnt last as long as I would have liked...still very good for a prWO powder

    Energy 9.5/10
    Energy never fails with this product.....Always a kick in the ass ... Its also a very positive well being energy....I just feel better and happier when I take maximize

    Vascularity 8.5/10
    I once again got a big boost in vascularity its very suprising....I cant imagine the vascularity on Hemavol

    Taste 6/10
    I tried to cheat and take two scoops on 15 ounces and it tasted very chemically....I love this product....just not the taste really..... geranium is very hard to mask however

    Ill put it this way ....I had to comments that sum up my workout

    Friend 1 : " Did u just put on a smaller shirt when u went to the bathroom, it looks like it shrunk"

    Friend 2 : " are u sure ur not on roids"

    Pump : 10/10 Incredible My shirt actually felt like it was shrinking around my chest

    Taste : 6/10....I just dont really like the taste, I may add sugar to help creatine absorb better, maybe it will taste better too

    Vascularity: 8/10 I am always very pleased at the vascularity with mazimize considering it seems to be geared more towards an energy prewo

    Energy: 9/10 Always have plenty to spare, I just leave so I dont overtrain
