    RickRock's MAXIMIZEing INTENSE workouts along with HEMAVOL!! (iForce Sponsored)


    First off, let me give a BIG thanks to VaughnTrue and the rest of the iForce team for hooking me up with both Maximize intense and Hemavol!

    I have tried a previous sample of Maximize, and was very impressed with it in terms of its effects and taste, so I am very interested in how Maximize intense stacks up. I have used TONS of different types of preworkouts. Some good, some great!....and some not so great, so i should be able to give a pretty accurate account of how Maximize does in comparison to other preworkouts. I will be giving my opinion on everything that Maximize should be giving in terms of Energy, focus, pumps, duration, taste, etc....Im really looking forward to how it does. I have always been pretty much a stim junkie and love preworkouts in general. I workout very early at 6 AM, so a good preworkout with great effects is a must!!

    Hemavol will be a bit of something new to me in terms of its profile. From what I've heard it will be pretty nice and it tastes good, o I'm very eager to try it out. I have used Agmatine sulfate alone and I was impressed with it very much on its effects on gym performance, huge pumps, and big vascularity increases. So with all the other ingredients in Hemavol it sounds like there may be some great things out of this product! I will give feedback on everything that I think that Hemavol is and should be doing in terms of pumps, vascularity, performance, energy, stamina, endurance, and anything else I can think of.

    Between Maximize intense and Hemavol, this should be a very impressive preworkout stack, and I can wait to try it out. My next gym workout session is Monday morning, so I will be cracking it open and giving my first bit of feedback on what I think then.


    Join me for MAXIMIZING some INTENSE workouts!!!

    Well, today was my first workout using Maximize Intense and Hemavol. Started off with the Maximize. From the directions on the container it appeared that it was pretty strong, as 2 scoops is the maximum recommended dosage. I normally use 2 scoops of any other preworkout, but to assess this I decided to start with a scoop and a half. I have the raspberry lemonade flavor, and it actually tasted pretty decent compared to most other preworkouts. After about 15 minutes or so I really felt the effects coming on. I could tell this stuff was pretty powerful as I got a little bit of jittery hands from it. That's pretty good for a scoop and a half!!

    Shortly after taking Maximize, I took the Hemavol. I started off with just a scoop of this. I have the watermelon cooler flavor, and let me tell you, the taste of this stuff was incredible!! I was very impressed on that part. This stuff really does taste great!!

    I had no mix ability issues with either one. They both mixed very well. I was feeling pretty good ....now it was time to hit the gym!!

    I felt amped and ready to go as soon as I walked in the gym. Despite being in a very depleted state from very low carbs all weekend, I got some very big pumps!! After about 15 minutes of lifting my arms had tightened up a lot and the pump was insane!! Vascularity increases came on quickly as well. Performance wise, I did very well. I normally don't do great in depleted workouts, but today I had a great session. I matched some personal bests on lifts and endurance felt great. I didn't want to leave!! Great first day on maximize and Hemavol!

    Yeh that was what I was thinking. I'm carbing up pretty good today, so tomorrow I will have a little taste of what the workouts will be like with my glycogen stores back to normal

    Definitely curious to hear your input on hemavol. I love maximize but have really wanted to try the hemavol. Nice lifts bro!

    Had a pretty stellar workout today. I was all carbed up from yesterday and ready to see how the workout and pumps was going to go with the maximize/Hemavol combo!

    I went with about 1.75 scoops of Maximize, and 1.5 scoops of Hemavol today and i think it was almost too much! I have a pretty high stim tolerance, and after a little bit I felt real jittery and almost nauseous. It passed after a bit, but Maximize is no joke. I think i will make 1.5 scoops my limit on it for now.

    The pumps from the Hemavol were CRAZY! Shortly after a few sets I had the vascularity making my bicep veins looking like hoses, and my arms filled up like balloons. This dose may even be a little high for me too. I might drop it to a scoop to compare for tomorrow.

    Performance wise I matched PRs on a lot of lifts and maintained a higher level of strength later in the workout with less fatigue. I felt great on this combo for sure. It really is something special how well they work together

    Well, since I may have took too large of a dose yesterday, I decided yo tone it down today. I went with just over a scoop of both Maximize and Hemavol. I didn't get the jittery feeling that I did before, but I think the dose may have been a little less than what I needed actually. My pumps weren't huge like the previous days and my energy level was lower. I felt fatigued and drained that lasted through most of the day. It made my workout a little hard to push through. I'm sure there were other factors contributing to my fatigue. I might just be wore out altogether.

    I still managed to push through the workout and not let my numbers suffer, but I will be getting some extra carbs in today to try and get my energy back up.

    Tomorrow is just cardio, so i won't be taking maximize and Hemavol, but hopefully will be ready to kill it on Friday since I think i know my sweet spot with this stuff. I think a scoop and a half of each is perfect for me at this point

    So....today I decided to go with the 1.5 scoops of maximize and the Hemavol both, and I think it definitely is my sweet spot and magic dose for it. Energy was spot on through the whole workout, and my arms really tightened up from the big pumps. Vascularity also looked very nice, and all of this was despite being very depleted from a very very low carb day yesterday.

    I'm loving this combination right now, especially now that I've found where it will work best for me!

    Rick, what constitutes a very very low carb day? Under 50g? Under 20g?

    That is just focking insane man, how the hell do you pull that off and still get at least 250 on protein?? I would literally pass the fock out every half hour if I were that depleted on carbs. I try to pull of 100gs a day carbs and its doing wonders for me, too much lower then 75 and I will die!

    Its actually not bad at all. Burn days my diet is generally chicken breast, plain Greek yogurt, fat free cottage cheese, whey protein, layne nortons cheesecake and steamed broccoli.

    Hitting 250g protein is cake.

    Its a 5oz container and it does have 6g carbs per serving with 15g protein. Its the oikos Greek yogurt and I think its from Dannon

    Why so much cardio and little weights? Any specific reasons, did you dominate a buffet or something? haha

    I actually only do 2-3 days of cardio per week (Thursday,Saturday, Sunday is optional and may just be rest day) and 4 days of weights per week. Once the weekend comes it looks like I do a lot of cardio because I dont do weights on the weekend...lol. During the week is when I smash the iron!

    Had a damn good workout yesterday. Stuck with my dose i dialed in on both maximize and Hemavol of 1.5 scoops each and it worked perfectly. I had a great pump going and the energy was through the roof. After about 20 minutes or so, the pumps were getting so big that I could really feel my triceps tightening and swelling up, which really made me look pretty huge. Vascularity was once again looking great, and I managed to hit some very nice PRs on DB chest work. I have never done 100lb DBs for 10 reps before on flat bench, so that felt great. I may be ready to see what I can do with 105s next time I do the exercise.

    This stack continues to impress me with how well it helps me push through every workout and what it is capable of.

    Had another pretty good workout with big pumps. I had one minor PR in there, but the big thing today was energy and stamina. I had tons of it and didn't want to leave the gym. The combination of Maximize and Hemavol are doing a wonderful job at keeping me motivated and focused while destroying the iron!!
