    Time to get INTENSE!! - Maximize Intense log!


    First of all id like to give a huge thank you to I force nutrition for giving me the opportunity to log this product. A little background on my pre workout usage .......... I have tried almost every one out there, you nam eit I have probably tried it. The ones that i have used a full tub would be jacked, superpump 250, superpump max, wyked, white flood V1, napalm, shock therapy, original n.o. xplode, anadraulic state gt, and of course maximize V2.

    current stats.... age - 22
    weight- 145
    lifting schedule/split - chest/bis, back, shoulder/traps, arms, legs...........
    workout - usually start each workout with more of a power move.....lower reps not to failure, try to use bands if possible (band bench, jump squats, cleans) then go into hypertrophy work....i took about 2 weeks of jsut going short of failure or jsut to failure to ligthen up a littel bit, yest. marked my first day back at intensity techniques like drop sets and what not.
    Diet- 3500 cals a day, carb cycle.....high days are 300/350/100 p/c/f mod days 300/200/166 off days are jsut protein and fat and usually shoot for around 2600 cals
    Goals - put on sum damn weight....i was once a college football palyer, much bigger/stronger/faster lookin to get some of that back, i had gotten very sick...down to 112 lbs in the hospital and workin to try and get back....i also have testosteone issues, i have rescently entaken off hrt soooo im tryin out some DAA to hope it can do somethin for me


    now to my initial thoughts on MAXMIZE INTENSE!!!!

    taste - i mixed 1 scoop in about 20 oz of water which is kinda alot so it wasnt a strong taste at all....if u have tried V2 it is much less intense of a taste than that. Also V2 had a very strong smell to it, this does not....a different taste, not bad at all, not the best i have ever had but still very good, liek i said it was pretty diluted too.

    mixability- thought it all dissolved right away but it didnt after abotu 5 min. there was sum on he bottom but i jsut shook it up a few more times and seen nothing after that, and no clumps or anythign so mixability was good!

    -pumps - shoudler days dont usually give me too much of a pump for some reason but today there was defr sumthing going on haha.....even doing power movements of jsut 6 reps like banded military press i was getting a pump in my delts which is VERY rare since its low reps and presses are a compoun movement and arent compeltely focused on my delts......def noticed a huge pump after doing a drop set of high pulls on the smith machine which felt awsoem

    - energy - i noticedit took a little longer to kick in than i thought it would BUT once it kicked in it was good stuff...i woudltn say it was CRAZY energy like some pre workouts give you, I had drank abotu a half cup of coffee and a cup of green tea before too.....and i didn't finish the full scoop so take it as u will with gauging it for now .......

    - focus - honestly cant sy i noticed much of an intense focus but it was only the first tiem, i was pretty focused already soo i dunno....will def. keep an eye on this!

    so far so good hope to hear some good stuff from you guys !!!

    If you didn't find the energy insane, make sure to take 1 full scoop. Only uses 6-8oz water next time as well.




    Great start!

    today's workout was not the best, but for INTENSE id say it was a good day...... i say this because iw as waiting for my buddy to show up to workout and he was about an hour late sooo i was ready to go for a while and then when he did show kinda kept me outta my focus ya know, i liek to really zone in when i work out, and wasnt able to really ever do this...it also took a while which i wasnt happy with.......bu heres y i said intense shined.....i sipped on it throughout and never lsot energy even after 2 hours when we finallyleft (3 hours after i had started dirnking intense) i still had plenty of energy sooo A+ on that!

    alright guys, back on that intense today for a nice chest/bi workout......I was able to lift by myself and really focus again....i usually have a hard ime gettin a good pump in my chest and really feeling my chest work, my other muscle just tend to take over, but today i was extra focue and mentally thought abotu contracting my pecs with each rep, if that meant lowering the weight than o well ......felt great, pumps were incredible for chest and bis, weight is not all that matteers, fucsing on contractions and slow eccentrics gave me one of the best pumps ive had in a long ass time , oo and im sure the intense didnt hhurt :-)

    145x10
    145x10

    fly machine ss incline hammer strength....dont remember weights 3 sets double drop on last set on hammer strength

    DB press with twist - i love the teisitng motion on flys and presses, really gives me a strong contraction at the top of the motion
    30x15
    35x12
    35x10

    chesst was pretty shot at this poit but still did 3 sets of wide drip BW dips with short rest periods, think i got about 15,12,12 with a few negative reps really slow on the last set

    and a few high rep cable flys

    for bis - barbell curl - strict form!

    60x8
    60x8
    60x8
    60x8 + 2 cheat reps then double drop 40,30

    cable preacher curl....forgot weights, but sets were 12-15, 10-12, 10-12 with a drop on last set

    incline curl - 15x15

    17.5 x 12 drop 10x10
    17.5x10 drop 10x10

    yea went throghou alot gettin real sick and dorpping to about 100lbs.... thinking this is where my test stopped or around that time, im hoping as i put on weight it will start being made again....only thin gis its hard to put on weight with no testso i dunno maybe the DAA will help although i had taken it in the past, only other thing is we might try clomid (again).......... as for now all i can do is lift and eat and hope for the best and thats what im doing

    the fasted training was not too great....i used to LG and was pretty used to it, but to jsut throw it in esp. after a tough leg workout wasnt smart...i jsut wasnt completely there, this is also a reason i usually take the day after legs off...... well had two days off for the first time in a long time with the arnold yest and ltos of work today, the diet was **** at the arnold though, literally just protein bars on top of protein bars all day....ready to go for tomorow thouhg, can wait to train again!

    105x10
    115x10
    120x9+3 (rested a little between reps)

    dont know why but i tried to do bw pull ups and was shooting for 4 sets of 6-8 and only got 5 and 3 good reps without cheating so i jsut did weight pull ups on the machine...i really hate sucking at pull ups im gonna focus on them from nwo on i think, i dont liek doign them though cuz i suck at them lol, never been good at them, anyone got any tips for gettin good at pull ups?

    anyways....10 x 10
    10x10
    10x9 ds 13x11 great squeezes all teh way up and slow controlled negatives

    4 plates x 20 rest +5 Drop 3 plates x 15 2 plates controlled x 10

    bent over row.....

    205x10
    205x10 these sets were pretty sloppy not gonna lie , wanted to go heavy but i think iwas pretty shot form the t bars
    145 x 15 solid set!

    my school gym has a cool rowing station on liek the cable station which has the footplatforms higher and the cable higher so u row pulling down towards you a bit so i took advantage of that but did it with an ez bar underhand grip.......

    all isolation work i really focused on exploding the concentric, squeezing and then having a slow controlled eccentric...really feel the muscles working this way, really liking it!

    75x15
    90x15
    105x15

    lat pullover

    hammer strength pull down

    210x8 these were jerky reps
    210x8
    120x12 + 3 unilateral
    120x 12 +3 unilateral drop 90 x 15.......good squeezes

    some calf work on a hack squat machine and seated calf raises, dont remember wights but i did 4 sets on each, first two sets were heavy 8-12 reps and the next 2 sets were high reps around 20......i get a horrible pain in my foot when i do calf raises though which makes it realyl hard to do them its not liek planter fasciatis or anyrthing either its a bone issue, i think i brok emy foot a long time ago but never got it fixed and now the bone kinda like pokes out, i dunno, i do what i can, im nto gonna go have my foot broken to fix it.

    so far still loving htis, pumps energy focus all has been great, some days i dotn even finish it, i suualyl drink some coffee/tea befoe hand too though, and sip this throughout but just one scoop has still been giving me great energy throughout even a long workout like today!

    What are reverse crunches? Just curious! Sounds like back hyperextensions to me.

    sooo i gotta be hoenst, i really didnt think i was going to train today, i had every intention too when i got up but after sitting through a new employee orientation(u know how much fun those are) i was absolutely dead , jsut wanted to sleep...fortunately we got out a littel early so i was able to run a few errands and that kinda woke me up...not totally though, i jsut pushed through i gues (whether i shoudl have or not....


    anyways.... it was a leg day...and turned out to be a damn good one and i attribute alot of it to MAXIMIE INTENSE!!!!

    mixed up about a scoop and a quarter and hit it hard..... went heavy to start on sets and pumped it out more towards the last few sets...think m gonna keep tryin this ou for a few weeks, i like the idea of relaly breakin down the muscle and then using hte higher reps towards the ned to relaly get the blood to the damaged areas......

    Squats- really focuseing on slow negatives and ATG

    225x8
    225x8
    225x8

    front squat

    145x12
    155x10
    135x12
    135x12

    squat again (higher reps, no belt)
    135x17, slight rest +3
    145x15
    155x15 (belt)

    leg press machine

    stack (380) x 12
    stack x 13
    320 x 20
    320x20 drop 260x15 220x 25!!! burned liek hell....and got such a head rush, kinda effected the rest of my workout, almost liek a dull headahce

    DB RDL

    90x8
    90x8
    90x7
    75x15

    seated leg curl

    130x15 pr
    145x10
    145x10 drop 110 x 6 drop 95x15 really felt these in my hams today, not sure why, partly because of the heavy rdls before maybe but it felt liek my hams wnated to tear , good stuff

    lying leg curl 2 sets toes in, 2 sets toes out

    55x12 x 4

    started talkin to a buddy about a new way to hit my ass, he said sumo deads so i tried them .....

    155x12
    185x12
    185x12....if u really focus on squeeing the glutes this def does the trick!....and i jsut realied i forgot to do leg ext....o well, im gonna have trouble walking for a few days as it is


    pumps were relaly good, focus was good, and im really suprised i got such a good workout troday with teh way the day started....anyoen notice that sumtimes ur best workout s are when ur not feelign ur best,, i have a bit of a head cold too

    another good way to hit glutes would be glute-ham raises, probalby my favorite for working the glutes and the top part of the hamstrings. Sumo deads are a great option too though.

    Glad to see that Intense helped you push through that, I notice it really wakes me up since I train early in the morning, and I can say that I've had some pretty good workouts while feeling kind of crappy too haha.

    And for abs, I usually stick to reverse crunches on the decline board. I feel like that's been the best ab exercise for me personally. Rope crunches and hanging leg raises are up there too
