    If you are looking for the hardest hitting stimulant out there I don't think Alphamine is the one for you. If you are looking for a fat burner then you should try it. It is strong, it won't feel like a high dose of 1,3-DMAA though.

    Did a 5rm check today with a friend who was getting his numbers for the 531 training.

    Deadlift
    135x5
    185x5
    225x5
    245x5
    265x5
    275x5
    295x5
    315x3 haha this one I should've just did 305.

    Cleanx3 + 1 jerk
    95
    115x3
    135x2

    Power cleans
    95x5x3

    OH squat
    45x5
    65x5
    85x5x3

    First time on this exercise. Love it lol.

    Bench press
    135x5
    185x5
    225x5
    245x5
    275x1.5 yea too high of a jump, but I really wanted 275 Haha.

    Calories been hard to meet. With my ever changing schedule, and lack of a personal fridge cooking massive amounts of food with any regularity is not an easy thing. Some weeks my schedule has me at split day off, days off that make a 9 day work stretch, and sometimes 9 hour turn arounds. But still at least I got in my macros yesterday.

    Today is my pull up day. ?

    So the short break I took from posting was more to get a grasp on my training. It was all over the place due to training about an hour away to meet with a friend to train. Let me tell you training with a partner is WAY better than training alone. So much more motivation and the extra help for a spot on bench or squat is a great mental boost, not to mention the competition.
    Anyway I am doing a 531+ program I found on this training app called multi-year. It's basically a squat/bench/deadlift/press with an additional 531 movement on the upper days and does a full horizontal vertical split every upper body day. Also, squat day is a deadlift rep day, and vice versa. It's very good. Here's to getting my 405x5 squat, and 345x5 bench back.

    Alphamine was great, good mood boosting, energy, I'm sad to see it go. But enhanced is on it's way and I will be doing a log on that so look out for that one.
    I'll post a more detailed review of Alaphmine when I get back from the gym and grocery shopping

    actually it's going well... well it was... until I hit my 1s week in 5/3/1 and was like.. man this stuff is too light. And went ape $hit trying to find a new program when I should have just sticked to the same one. Luckily it only lasted like 2 days.
    BTW, that review... MY BAD! The wife has been making me take her driving around Hawaii so she can learn for next week when her friend comes by and she is gonna tour them around.
    Back on track with 5/3/1 but I've been doing a lot of Superset/drop sets in the accessory stuff. Intersting thing I found was I get bored with something I tend to just automatically add more sets or exercises... I have seriously bad exercise ADD. And Not to mention when I do this it compounds... so usually I work out once a day no matter what... i'll go do oly lifts or supplementary lifts on off days. Now I have been doing those sessions in the AM and in the PM... And doing around 6 super/giant sets. Then doing cardio... haha. Man... I think I just need to find something that's gonna allow me to workout all the time...

    Alphamine:

    Taste: It wasn't like amazingly good/sweet/like candy. But it didn't have any strange strong hints of some grainular substance that made me cringe when it braises my tongue so it was okay. Plus with the immediate mental clairty it was worth the shot of liquid.

    Energy: Energy on this was definitely noticeable. I had to replace this with a 2 preworkouts just to get the same morning pick up. I would say that it was long lasting, but more than energy it brought my baseline energy levels up throughout the day. I only dosed it in the AM and never went above 1.5 scoops. Focus was definitely good. With or W/o a pre workout supp the focus and intensity I was able to bring to the gym was the same. Meaning I would take it alone and use a pre w/o just for the ergogenic effects of whatever was in the pre, and not for the energy or focus as it seemed, for me, to be maxed out with just Alphamine.

    Fat loss: I must say it was good when I was dieting and watching the cals. When I went into bulk/strength gain mode it was harder to eat than it was now, my cravings weren't as bad, but it didn't prevent me from over eating. With a solid diet regime, this would be great. But it didn't match my goals half way into my cycle but it wasn't "wasted" as the energy boost I got was still worth it in my opinion.

    Summary: I would definitely buy this again when I need to cut. This is probably the best non pill fat burner I have ever taken.




    Currently have 2 bottles of Enhanced in the future so be ready for that log ;D

    Dude, I know what you mean... but I LOVE to train myself into the ground. It's like a drug... and as body chemistry or physiology would show with the release of all those adrenal hormones it's probably very true... But I love it.
    My current routine for supplementary back is
    Lat pulls 4 sets double drop/pronated pull ups till failure
    Close grip cable rows triple drop set/meadow rows till failure
    Single arm lat pulls/chest press machine
    Meadow Rows for 6-8 reps/Hammer curls/DB curls.
    Cardio
    Pull ups till failure
    Core 15mins.

    Also, to add to your earlier point, it keeps us sane. I enjoy people watching me DL 450lbs.

    That's a mean DL... I sadly, cannot dead that amount just yet. I topped off at 405 last year. But with training being compromised I dropped it all the way down to 325 or so... I could probably Sumo Deadlift around 395 still though.. conv is a bit weaker atm.

    Quick health update:

    After finding I have a Hiatal hernia I stopped eating so much at a single meal.
    Since increasing my training volume though my need for carbs to keep my 1.5hr volume sessions up I have increased my carbs... sadly I think it sparked up my candida (or what seems to be symptoms of it). Unfortunately, I'm going to have to switch back to a lower carb/lower volume type work load for a little while.. which I absolutely hate.. I did 5/3/1 just the lifts before.. and it was so unfulfilling.... we shall see.
