    Nothing but a MANIAC!!


    Welcome again to another GoHard log! Recently I ran the Swole Stack during a very successful cut and have taken the past couple of weeks to get off of all advanced supplementation and get back to basics.

    So after over a month of basics (you know..diet...whey...bcaa's...e tc) i have decided to kick it up a notch and log AI Sports Nutritions pre-workout MANIAC! To preface i havent been on any pre-workout's or stims since my cut.

    So without further ado let this log begin! I just drank 1 serving of Maniac and here is my overall first impression:

    Mixability: 10/10
    Mixes with a couple of shakes. Just becareful because gas builds up

    Taste: 10/10
    It almost taste like a carbonated beverage. Its delicious. Really nice flavor...i feel almost like im not taking in a pre-workout. Easily the best tasting pre-workout that i can readily think of.


    I will let you guys know how the work out goes. Im hitting back.

    In and looking forward to this Andre. The only reason I do not take it is I do cardio in the am and weights pm and if I take caffeine later my sleep does not go into a deep as sleep.

    Lets see you crush some weights and get them Personals Records!

    Back Workout


    Today's back day was far better then expected. Upon taking Maniac i noted about 20 minutes after a focesed intensity, much like motivate but not as intense. I was very tired from studying so i was surprised i got a second wind of sorts and i was ready to go and hit the gym.

    Workout:

    Stretch

    Foam Roller

    Deadlift warm up: 135/225/315/405

    Deadlift 455: 3x1x2x1

    1 arm dumbell row: 120x 5x5x5x2
    There was no rest here, it was one arm after another

    Bent Over Row: 225x5x5x3
    1 minute rest

    Pulls ups: 3 sets to failure

    I was going to do some cardio but it was raining outside....so i called it a day.

    The longest part of this lift was def the warming up, stretching, and foam rolling. Beyond that everything was at a nice intense pace.

    Deadlift I almost got 4 the first time but i didnt lock out and i almost got 3 the third set but again didnt lock out. This was for me a very good lift considering the pace. My rest between sets for deadlift was to adjust the weight and chalk up.


    All in all this first workout with Maniac proved to be truly intensified just enough for me to have a productive lift. Today was the FIRST day i hit 4 sets with 455. I am starting to handle the weight with no wraps far more aggressively so im going in the right direction.

    Pump was more then i had anticipated.

    Energy was smooth and sustained throughout the entire lift.

    No crash.

    Vascularity was coming out nicely.

    If this continues I feel this may be my new staple pre-workout i use and then cycle others to change it up.

    And if you want a bit more just add a couple Motivate... I think it's better to be on the lower end and use something like Motivate if you want a bigger stim. Sometimes I'm just in the mood to rock out!

    Updates!!


    Alright so I am not proud of the following workouts. To be honest I wasnt even going to workout but the minute i hit my two scoops of Maniac! I had no option...it was Go hard or be a b*tch. So I walked in the gym and did the best I could.

    Tuesday:

    Bench

    Warm up:
    135, 225, 315

    Work out:
    365x1x1
    375x1

    Ive hit a pretty nasty mental plateau in this and in squat. The strength is there but the reps are not. Im going to change up my routine and start seeing if i can break this mental barrier.

    Bench from bottom of the motion:
    335x5x4x2

    Bench lock out:
    405x4x3x1

    Bench dumbells:
    120x5x4x3

    Bench Incline:
    225x4x3
    275x0 I failed out at this point


    Wednesday: no time to lift

    Thursday: (today had to sneak in biceps and squats)

    Squats

    Warm up: 135, 225,315,405,455

    Work out: from bottom of the squat dead weight

    315x5x4x3
    Trying to work out the driving force from a dead position. I am very much weaker from here then i am during a full squat. Gotta work on my weakness if I ever wanna get somewhere


    Biceps:
    Hammer curls
    Preacher curls

    Now im running to class.

    Diet hasnt been perfect b/c of lack of food so im making due till we can hit the grocery stores. Its not that its a bad diet it just should be a lot better when it comes to the amount and number of meals.

    Tomorrow is shoulders and triceps.

    Starting next week im either going back to 5/3/1 or designing a routine to strengthen my weaknesses. I may combine the two and see what i get.


    Sometime you just need a little extra push (especially since i workout alone in my garage) and Maniac was just that.

    Weight is between 184-185 non-keto. So carbs are back on the menu!

    Thank you for the encouragement but I am quite embarrased by them. But its not about ego...just gotta keep workign 2x a hard to make just as much progress as the rest.


    On another note....Im sore all the time...i miss the SWOLE stack...I hate not being on it....I cant wait till Im on it again. But ill stay discipline in giving my body a rest. Maniac is more then enough for now. Add in Recoverpro and Essentials 2x a day and I am being spoiled.

    Heck...im not even on glycobol so as to truly perfect my diet. Glycobol is so effective it allows me to cheat a bit and still make amazing gains. That is unacceptable. MORE PAIN EQUALS MORE GAIN!

    Right when my work sets are up at 315 I will be jumping up and down. Warm ups at 315... THen I see work twice as hard to make the gains others do. WHO? Me okay admittedly right now I am way ahead of the curve on my goals but we know why this is the case too. However when it comes to strength even on the compounds I am using I can't touch you man!

    Keep up the great work Andre.

    do you on doing a meet? or a bodybuilding show?

    it is about working your muscle not your joints and tendons.

    Now if you are power lifting emphasis just becomes on moving the weight from point A to B, then strength is all that matters

    I plan on incorporating strength training twice a year for about a month 1-5 reps each set.
    1. The body is not used to this kind of training(if you working in the bodybuilding 6-12 rep range)
    2. You use heavier weights than normal
    3. When you return to bodybuilding workouts you increase strength , in the higher rep ranges because your body got used to the heavy weights.

    I guarantee if you switch up rep ranges you would get a different look, 6-12 generally build muscle, while 1-6 strength and not so much size.(and 12 + muscle endurance) I cycle my training as I think it is important to cycle intensity and rep ranges.

    btw you are stronger than myself on the big three rep maxes and like 40-45 lighter.I also do not do bench presses

    In conclusion it is advantageous to train in the 1-6 rep range for a bodybuilder 3-5 weeks two times a year.

    Im all about strength. Powerlifting and martial arts is my thing so everything i do is either to generate massive power or to make myself a better fighter.

    Bodybuilding is not my personal cup of tea at this point in my life. I think you are right on the money when it comes to switching my rep ranges would change my look drastically...but since that would add a lot more muscle then i would want i find it undesirable. Every lb of muscle i add to my frame I want it to correlate to pure power, strength, and might. Nothing need be wasted on my frame and that includes removing all unnecessary fat.


    However i do find many advantages in trainign to a bodybuilding style workout routine. It can have great influence on cardio and overall muscle conditioning when one encorporates the right lifts with minimal rest.


    Right now im working on my bench and squat form to eventually compete in a meet. My form at the moment is very dirty and probably wouldnt fly in a competition.

    1) hotel gyms are the most annoying aspect of travel...I almost refuse to step into them at times. Dumbells that go up to 50....really? No bench...no squat rack...you will be lucky to find a pull up bar.

    2) I feel your pain....I use the little baggy method. Take the alotted amount of a powder in one bag...aka 2-3 scoops per lift. Then another pill bag. Depending on the amount of space i may be allowed 1 bag per supplement...if not 2 bags suffice. One for powder, one for pills. It saves a lot of space, just make sure to double bag the powder.


    3) Im sorry for you loss....lol

    and sh*t them out before lunch lol



    Well I have changed up my routin to 4 days a week. Tues, Wed, Fri, Sat....due to my school schedule and this will hopefully allow more rest so i can hit each lift a little harder.

    Todays lift:

    3 scoops Maniac!....WOOOHOOO Someone lit a fire under my @ss i was ready to go!

    Stretched out warmed up

    Seated military Press to chest:

    Warm up: 95, 135

    Workout 145x4x4x2

    Seated military Press from top of head up(elbows at 90 degrees):

    185x5
    225x5
    250x4

    Cable tricep Pushdown:
    50x8
    70x8
    90x8x8x6

    One hand Tricep extensions behind the head:
    30x8x8

    Then the last part of the workout was one right after another so i might as well just put it in sequence:

    Skull Crushers: 45x15
    Side laterals: 20x10
    Skull crushers:45x15
    Side Laterals: 30x10
    Skull crushers 45x15
    Side Laterals 30x10
    Skull Crushers: 45x10
    Side laterals: 30x10, 20x10, 10x7

    Rear Laterals:
    10x10
    4 seconds
    20x10
    4 seconds
    30x10
    10 seconds
    30x10
    no rest
    20x6
    no rest
    10x6

    2 scoops of TruNutritions delicious chocolate Isolate and a banana


    No on to histology for the rest of the day and finish up with some ethics. Tomorrows class is about pregnancy and abortion. Gonna love that class.

    John this is some great information you wrote here. I don't ever plan to compete (that I know of...) BUT I enjoy breaking through physical and mental plateaus. I may give this a shot in December and then get back to my more standard BB style workouts. Definitely got me thinking!
    If my direct and cynical approach bothers you, just ignore it. I'm just saying what you need to hear ;).

    It is definitely good information but we can not forget that a lot of people who are great at power lifting also tend to grow more from lower repetitions due to more Type 2 fibers firing faster and burning out more quickly and they can grow a much more dense type of musculature. I honestly grow best from 4-6 reps but my body can't handle that all the time any more. I have to use 6-8 as my sweet spot unless only going heavy for short bouts. I haven't even been able to do 6-8 recently. I am all about periodization now. Some heavy, some light, some moderate days.
