    Thanks Mike, I like strongman, as it gives me a break from powerlifting and allows me to try different things.

    Thanks Dave. I'll try and post up my thoughts after my workout tonight. It's the first night I'm trying 1.5 scoops, so we'll see how that works as compared to 1 scoop.

  10. bummmp! hows it going?

    What's goin on stranger? Things have been busy after the birth of my son in January, but I wouldn't trade it for anything. How are things with you?

  12. Well, I couldn't make it to the gym. The boy was having a meltdown and mama needed me at home.

    9/18 - Transmutation (Events)

    Axle
    57kgx1 Clean/3 Strict Press
    87kgx1 C/ 3 Push Press
    97kgx1 C/ 3 Push Jerkx2
    107.5x1 C/ 3 PJx2 ~90% of Contest PR

    Yoke
    550x60'x2

    Stones
    159x56" Platformx1
    Misc Stones to 48" Platformx3
    Heavier Stone to Lap, had trouble loading. I just need to get stronger.

    Tried 1.5 scoops today. The focus was a little better, but the intensity and recovery between sets was similar to 1 scoop, so I'll stay at one scoop for the duration.

  13. 9/20 - Cardio

    1/2 scoop
    30 minutes

  14. Been super busy with work this week. Here's Tuesday's workout:

    9/21 - Week 11 Upper Accumulation

    13" Log Clean and Press (1 Clean)
    Logx5x2
    165x5x2 - Strict Press
    185x5x2 - Strict Press
    205x5 - Push Press/ Push Jerk

    BB Rows
    135x10x2

    Sledge Hammer Swings
    16lb Sledgex10,10x2

    Super Yoke
    350x~60'x2 Trips

  15. 9/27 - Cardio
    1 Scoop

    30 Minutes

    I think I'll dial it back down to half a scoop for Cardio.

    I'm also down to 252. One thing I've noticed from taking the Maximize in the morning is an appetite suppressing effect which is a nice perk since I'm trying to lose a bit of fat before my contest.

  16. 9/28 - Cardio and Accumulation

    AM Cardio - 50 Minutes (1 Scoop)

    PM - Week 10 Accumulation

    Axle C&P (Short Axle) - 1 Clean

    77.5kgx3x2 (RPE 7)
    87.5kgx3x2 (RPE 7)
    97.5kgx8 (RPE 9)

    Keg Rows
    168x10x3
    ______________________________ __________________________
    9/29 - Cardio
    1 hour (1/2 Scoop)

  17. Looking good my man. One scoop seems to be the sweet spot for you. I think I like mine at about a scoop and a half. The focus as you stated at that dose is sweet. I tried 2 scoops and I felt a bit over stimmed..lOL

    Thanks J. Yeah, one scoop seems to work well. After trying 1.5 scoops, I think 2 scoops would be WAY too much 1,3 for me. 1/2 - 1 scoop seems just right. Strength is up and BW is trending down, so I can't complain.

  19. 9/30 - Cardio and Lower Accumulation

    AM - Cardio 30 minutes - 1/2 Scoop

    PM - Week 10 Lower Accumulation - 1 Scoop

    Front Squats (w/ Straps around the Bar)

    150kgx1 - RPE 8-9

    Arch Back GMs

    I think it provides just enough of a boost to carry me through my cardio and makes cardio feel less monotonous.

  22. 10/4 - Cardio (1/2 Scoop)

    20 minutes - Woke up late and had to rush, so I didn't get in as much cardio as I would have liked, but some is better than none.

  23. 10/6 - Cardio and Upper Accumulation

    AM - Cardio 40 minutes (1 Scoop)

    PM - Upper Accumulation (1 Scoop)
    8" Log Clean and Press (Clean 1st Rep) (Old PR: 205x7)
    Logx5
    155x5 - Strict Press
    165x3x2 - Strict Press - RPE 6
    185x3x2 - Strict Press - RPE 6
    205x3 - Push Press - RPE 7-8
    225x9 - Push Press/Push Jerk PR - RPE 10

    Farmer's Walk
    110x170'
    200x30 sec hold

    Keg Cleans (Mimicking Atlas Stone Movement)
    168x3
    234x1 - This was fawking heavy and awkward

    It was a good night. The last rep on the log wouldn't have counted in NAS because I let the log rest on my head. Good for a gym lift though.

  24. Here's a review at this point:

    Flavor 9.5/10
    Maximize mixes well in water straight out of the tap and in ice cold water. Although ice cold water seems to bring out the raspberry flavor more. The tartness of the lemonade is also refreshing

    Energy 10/10

    I respond very well to supplements with 1,3 in them. I refer to the focus as laser like. Too much 1,3 does throw me off a bit, having an almost "stimmed-out" feeling. But I-Force put just the right amount per scoop and I really enjoy it.

    Endurance 10/10
    I see a definite increase in both work capacity and endurance using Maximize. It's funny that the only thing holding me back isn't my muscles, it's my lungs. My mind and muscles say, "Let's go, we're ready for another set!" and my lungs say, "Can we get a minute? We're still on fire..." I usually keep my rest between sets between 1-3 minutes, but on Maximize, I've been able to reduce that significantly.

    Now that I'm getting into a bit heavier part of training cycle, I'll try and get videos of my training as well.

  25. Pretty solid so far. Looking forward to the vids!
