Maximizing my pumps with IFORCE

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
- 05-07-2010, 11:17 AM
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
05-07-2010, 12:22 PM

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,

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,

focus excellent stamina great, pump so so today, had a hard time getting them HARD and FULL but im sticking to cables for almost everything, my forearms take over for bi's and my tris have an insertion that is high so i feel straight arm lat pulldowns a lot in my tris, so cables are my thing, and that hammer strength tricep is amazing!!!!
loving it, have moved up to 1.5 scoops of the maximize v2 and liking it better and better, flavor is by far the best ive had.... great formula flavor boys
05-17-2010, 09:21 AM
I get good pumps when i add like 2.5 -3 grams creatine to Maximize.....Im not sure as to the amount used in maximize...most preWO use around 2-3 grams....and i like 5 pre/post workout....gives u good pumps
05-17-2010, 11:08 AM

man reading all this great feed back makes me sad that, Ups shipped my MAXIMIZE without a signature. Now one of my neighbors kids is having sum killer werkouts and not me.
I have been using that agmatine for about 2 weeks eod and getting great pumps, that are evne noticeable even when im not lifting. Like holding the phone to my ear gets my shoulder and bicep screaming.
05-18-2010, 05:57 PM
yesterday was legs and cardio
lying leg curls 3 sets
stop box squats 3 sets of 12-15
leg extensions 3 sets 10
flying hamstring negatives, hard to explain but basically put your feet inder theseated calf machine and kind of do a flying squirrel thing and squeeze back up...

4 sets 10 reps of each
hammer incline 90lb/side
hammer flat achine, 150lbs
hammer incline fly, like the once in venice golds 45lbs
dips superset with cable crossovers,
great stuf, and best part is NO ARGININE!!! meaning i have been using it at work for enregy drinks and it rocks, best part is no worries about increasing arginase levels in my body because there is no ARGININE, let the Nitric OXide levels rise baby!!
05-25-2010, 10:13 AM

pullups, 4 sets of 10
hammer strength ISO row, 2plates and2 1/4's 4 sets of 10-14
close grip pulldown 4 sets of 10 with 180lbs

cable rear delts 4 sets 15 with 25lbs,
hammer rope cable curls, 1 triple drop set.
awesome pump, dad was really able to push himself today, he was rocking it, adding more and more weight said he felt great, infact called me after the workout to tell me that his back felt awesome driving in his truck which usually hurts a little,
maximizev2 is the best stuff i have ever used bar NONE
05-25-2010, 10:01 PM
Nice I was trying to upload a video of me doing 1380 on leg press using maximize but i dont know how to transfer from phone to pc lol
PA-S, - TROPINOL REVIEW (SPONSORED)
05-26-2010, 10:18 AM
still loved it today on LEGS, although the pump was a little intense,
i tihnk on leg days ill use 3/4 scoop pump in legs was almost too good, and limited my reps due to overflowing blood
4 sets leg extensions
4 sets squats
4 sets hamstring lying leg curl
3 sets leg press feet high legs wide
3 sets each abductor, and adductor.
reps were 15ish for me but dad was doing 8's to build strength, i tink i got him hooked, every morning he asks
" wheres my lemonade stuff?"
05-26-2010, 10:27 AM
sorry pics are ****, phone cams are so touchy sometimes they are great other times horrible, i think its lighting....
05-27-2010, 01:05 PM
That's way too early for me! I don't go to bed until at least midnight. I hate mornings so much, lol! Your workouts are looking good, glad Maximize is giving you the energy you need.
