Maximizing my pumps with IFORCE
SO just got back form arms today and guess what showed up at my door aobut 1hr before my workout? all three of my bottles of Maximize V2!!! 2 from my DPS order and 1 graciously gifted from Iforce(props DAVE and DAVID!!!)
so i scoop it at ~1.25 scoop, opening the bottle reminded me of raz lemonade SP250, mied it up with about 6oz water and boom tasted about the same as sp250 maybe a lil better less tartness to it, had my GF take a sip and asked what it tasted like...."TASTES LIKE LEMONADE!" as she licks her lips
score a 9/10 for TASTE
ENERGY/FOCUS gf asked if there was "that tingly stuff" in it(beta alainine, said yup, and she has like 1/4oz of it and she felt it. i got tingles across my traps, slight not like a 3g dose but enough to feel it, id guess around 1g of it, focus hit me about 15min after gulping it down, i was ready to rock the gym so i sat around anxious to hit it but talked to the GF (very rapidly speaking as when i get a good stim rush i speak faster) and was out the door. whole workout was face paced didnt get tired, even with less than 30 sec resting which is about normal as i do 30-45sec rest.
ok so i usually have gatorade bcaa and my vitamin during my workout, but to assess the NO value of the agmatine i waited til my 2nd exercise of each bi and tri to see if this stuff agave a good pump, and yes siry bob it was great, i havent had arginine in over a month since ive been using a preworkout without NO boosters is it until this arrived today. pump was great, swole liek baloons but i could still feel the muscle contract unlike OTHER pre workouts that use glycerol where i get a jello feel and cant feel the muscle contract at all!!!!
have class in a few mintues so i hope the focus carries thorugh i will report back about that tmrw, after shoulders and cardio, today was great, i think i found a new FAV as my Blood Pressure didnt skyrocket, i didnt get nausious from the stims and didnt have a jello feel to it,
does agmatine have a building effect, the longer i take it the better the pumps?
arms went great
cable underhand pressdowns, 3 warmup sets 3 working sets 60lbs
cable curls 21's 40lbs was working sets 3 sets
tricep pushdowns in front to negate shoulder and chest from movement, 3 workign sets 130lbs
DB preacher curls 3 working sets 27.5lb DB 10 reps 3sec negative
hammer grip tricep push machine, 12 reps 4 sec negative 3 sets ~80lbs
bicep curl hammer pinloaded machine 50lb/arm 10reps 3-4sec negative
dips 3 sets of 10 to failure
wide grip hammer pinloaded curls to failure dropset started 110lbs for 8, 80lbs for 5, 50lbs for 10, 30bs for 10, 20lbs for 6
crunches and hanging leg raises, then postworkout to write my blog

nice!!! i wanna try that stuff

So today was shoulders, and man was i amped to roll outta bed and train today, i love new supps!!!
rear delt on fly machine, finally hit them right, instead of just flying my arms out like a bird i did that but at the end tried to pull my shoulder down alost like very slight lat pulldown. totally fried my Rear Delts did 3 work sets at 100lbs i tihnk
DB lateralls with 3sec negative, im starting to think that shoudlers respond best to time under tension and not just weight as there are so many surrounding and assisting muscles for the shoulder gurdle....
4 sets with 25lbs
Hammer strength pin loaded shoulder press iwth 3 sec negative, went liht did 50lbs each arm, 12 reps 3 sets working.....
DB lateralls from hell, huge drop set started at 50 for 10 reps of partials, dropped to 40lb then to 37.5 to 30, to 25, to 20s to 15s man that **** burns in all the right spots
front raises form hell, started at 30s for 10 with a pause at the top, then to 25 then 17.5 then 12.5 then ten all for 8-10 reps, great **** on those!!!!
superset of bent over shrugs for mid back and traps, superset with hammer strength shrug standing, did 3 sets no rest of each 10 reps a piece, with 5 sec hold at top on the hammer strength shrug
AGAIN ENDURANCE WAS NUTS, i still feel like i could go another round but the pump fades after wokring sets, so i know my muscles dont need anymore, taste again was good did 1.5 scoop in 8oz, all i need is one rounded scoop and im ready to go so this wil be a 35-40serv supplement for me!!! wooohooo
yesterday energy was still good through clas i took it at 113 started to wind down around 5 so taht is a good 5-6hr energy on this stuff, at 1.25 scoop at 205lbs, great ****!!!!
wish vascularity was a bit better, and pumps lasted longer but hey no such thing as perfect but this is the closest thing ive had to it!
really felt the Beta alanine today at 1.5 scoops, id say its around 1.25g/scoop guessing

hammer flat bench press 4 sets with 2plates a side felt awesome today!!!! lots of slow negatives today
hammer incline press 4 sets got up to 55lb per side felt really good today!
freemotion seated incline flies one side at a time was doing 70lb for sets of 8-12 felt awesome again had my hand on working pec and felt the fibers contracting if oyu have a hard time feeling any exercise prperly try that out,
dips 3 sets to failur mainly upright to help bring up tris.....
again maximize v2 was the ****!!! awesome energy focus was unmatched, no tingles at 1 scoop this time.... pumps with the gatorade mix was really good today, stil here as i sit and type,
vascularity hard to compare to others due to fluctuations in body fat levels
very impressed so far.... love how long this tub is looking to last me,
for me 1tub=6-8weeks!!!!

pump was lacking today, but so was my mental focus as i pushed up a meeting today and was waiting for the phone call during my workout, and had to try ot cancel my memebership today as well so i was al over the place today
energy was too strong for me today at 2 scoops, but the tingles were NUTS!!! again def 2g+ in 2 scoops of this stuff, BA seems to be a VERY legit dosage per seerving here....
05-12-2010 11:41 AM

energy was hard to tell i took a heaping scoop but it didnt hit me quite the same but **** thats why most peoople cant do 2x a day, workout was still good and without maximize v2 my workout would have been horrible...
