    Great lift, its always best to maintain proper form and stability, rather than pushing more weight w/ injury induced movement. Everyday is different, you'll get that 340lb soon I'm sure. Well we look forward to all 7 workout updates, and remember you can always buy some to avoid that "NO POWERMAX" depression..haha

    Thanks for the update, have a great weekend man!

  2. Ya I think I could get it on a good week. Just been run down with this sickness and I feel a little weaker. I am going to buy some more Powermax first chance I get. I was going to last week but some other stuff took priority. Forgot to mention when I took 2 scoops for hockey, I felt like I was a step ahead and was making smart decisions and tape to tape passes. It was awesome.

    Have a good weekend as well

  5. Ya I didn't wanna leave the gym so I did a few more sets of assistance work than I normally do and my arms were so swole. That was the only reason I left the gym haha, couldn't do a full contraction on a few reps. Got home and taking my shirt off was a struggle haha, arms were killed and filled out my shirt so much that my sleeves were tight. Gotta quit wearing the athletic cut tees when doing arms day, although it is always a nice sight to see when the sleeves are stretched.

  9. Looks like a tough workout man, very high volume! I love the pumps I get with Powermax, especially when going higher reps.

    Looking forward to your updates and final review

  10. Thanks guys. Wish I had a good update for you since I was gonna do squats today but the gym in California I went to was brutal. You can read about it in the douchebag thread if you'd like. Needless to say, I didn't get my squats in because: a) there were no open barbells out of the 6 they had there b) when there was an open bar, there were no weights. literally no weights on the 2 weight trees they had
    Still did my accessory work so I'll knock out squats tomorrow or later tonight. Did 5 sets of leg press, 5 sets of back raises, 5 sets of roman chair knee raises and 3 sets of lunges. I was so rattled I forgot to log my weights but I still got a decent burn in my legs without the squats.

  11. Hey no worries about that. I know what you mean, California does have alot of those type of gyms. Hopefully you had a chance to experience some good weather!

    Sometimes you just need to make due with what you have, looking forward to your update back once you're back to your normal stomping grounds..haha

    Have a great Easter Weekend

  12. Sorry for the lack of updates. I left California on Saturday and drove straight through to Colorado. 18 hours of driving. Arrived at 5 am and was out until Easter lunch on Sunday. Felt run down on Sunday and yesterday so I didn't lift. Got back in the gym today to redo squat day.
    2 scoops down 30 minutes before the gym and I was feeling good. Looks like I have 1.5 scoops left so I am gonna use that tomorrow for bench day and take so pump pictures and measurements to finish off the log. Still haven't built up a stim tolerance to this product so I had tons of energy on tap for today.

    Squat:
    10 reps x 45 lbs
    5x115
    5x145
    3x175
    5x195

    8x250

    Felt great in the gym but I can feel the DOMS coming on now haha. It was good to get back to the gym after being out of it for 4 days. Stay tuned for the final review tomorrow.

  13. Hell yea, looks like a freaking awesome workout. Also loving the fact you havent built a tolerance. Most poeple using this product noticed the stim effect stays pretty consistent which isnt like most other products!

  14. Early morning workout today boys! Went to bed around 9, woke up around 4:40. Drank the last of my Powermax...

    Took a preworkout bicep measurement:



    And hit the gym around 5 for chest day:

    Bench:
    10 reps x 45 lbs
    5x75
    5x95
    5x115
    3x135
    3x155
    9x175
    10x135

    DB Rows:
    10x70
    10x75
    10x80
    10x85
    10x90

    Tricep Pushdown:
    10x90
    10x90
    10x100
    10x110
    10x120
    20x60
    15x30

    Seated Cable Row:
    Close Grip:
    10x100
    10x110
    10x120
    15x60
    Shoulder Width Neutral Grip:
    10x80
    6x90
    10x60

    Arms were super pumped and I was about spent since I couldn't get the contractions complete.

    Took the opportunity to go to the locker room and snap an unflexed bicep pump pic:


    About an inch difference from before workout to after workout.

    And a flexed bicep pic about 20 minutes post workout:


    Few more pump and vein pics:

    Bicep and forearm:


    Forearm:










    Final thoughts:

    Mixability: Mixed up perfectly in little amounts of water. 8oz for one scoops and around 14-16 oz for 2. I never got any clumping in the tub due to the card in there. No little chunks at the bottom of the shaker. Little foam at the top but subsided after a few seconds.
    5/5

    Taste: Taste was okay. I might have been burnt out on fruit punch and it did grow on me towards the end. I ended up liking it more and more as I drank it but that may be due to my mind anticipating the awesome effects and sacrificing taste in favor of energy and a pump.
    4/5

    Intensity: I drank Powermax anywhere from 10 minutes before my workout to 45 minutes preworkout. When I drank it 10 minutes before, the energy seemed to kick in on my second warmup set which is about 5 minutes after I get to the gym. I ran to the gym when I took it 10 minutes before and seemed to have the focus before the energy which was nice when running because I get distracted easily and sometimes break my run. When I drank it 20 minutes before it seemed to be the sweet spot. Driving to the gym and I would start to feel the energy effects. It is a clean energy for sure and that is what I loved about it. Even though it is clean energy, I still had the drive to bust out some PR's during max week when I was feeling under the weather with a sore throat and lots of coughing.
    5/5

    Endurance: Endurance can be tricky with a preworkout and I think that Performax nailed this one. I would experiment with taking it before hockey, before HIIT cardio and when I was feeling groggy and needed a pick me up for studying. The energy was endless and as I am typing this, I feel like I could go back to the gym for round 2 if I didn't have work to do. I never experienced a crash on this product. When dosing prior to hockey, I actually lifted heavy squat day about 45 minutes before. Normally my legs would be done after that but Powermax kept my legs churning through an hour+ of drop in with minimal subs. I tried 1 scoop prior to men's league and I was flying on the ice. Energy for days even tho my legs were done, my mind told them to move so they did. Then I tried 2 scoops prior to men's league and sure enough we only had 1 sub for that game. I was on the ice for about 40 minutes of the 55 that we played and I had enough energy to out skate a few good players on the other team that had 3 full lines and get a breakaway to score. Even endurance lifting was huge. I would get done with a set and have to tell myself to slow it down and get some rest because I felt like I could take on more weight. Sometimes I would catch myself putting more weight on and the hopping under the bar to get back at it. I had a few 1:30-2 hour workouts when adding up lifting and cardio and I could keep going for days.
    5/5

    Focus: As I mentioned above, no matter what time I would does the Powermax at, the focus would be there in minutes. Got tunnel vision basically driving to the gym (not too intense where I couldn't drive haha) and once I was in the gym it was go time. Every time I would be so focused on the weights and my form that I would forget to put on new music when the playlist ran out. Had to make bigger playlists haha. In another aspect, Powermax helped up my school grades. I had been struggling to stay focused, used adderall a few times to get focused but once I tried Powermax in an academic environment, there was no need for adderall. This might be a stretch for some but I cranked out endless hours of school work at a time when taking 1 scoop before. I would go for 5 hours and be focused on my work. I wrote a 7 page paper on artificial sweeteners in 3 hours and cranked out a 5 page wiki entry on SARMs in 2 hours(Got A's on both). I was killing it and it felt good to be able to sit down focus and be able to articulate exactly what I meant in my head on to paper. This was a huge bonus as most of the other preworkouts I've tried don't hold a candle to the cognitive enhancements that Powermax does.
    5/5

    Pump:
    As you can see from pics above, my pump was pretty damn good. I didn't take any leg shots since my wheels are big but not defined. I must tell you that they were super pumped on leg days. For example, doing leg curls, as I progressed in my sets I would have to move the pad up a notch they were that solid. Fantastic pump. For arm assistance work, I was dying on a few sets throughout my log to finish off the contractions because it felt like my muscles were gonna pop out. Also got a few comments from some girls on how big my arms are haha. Nothing better than hard work and a great product getting recognized.
    5/5

    Vascularity:
    Veiny as all get out on some days, others were just the usual suspects coming out to say hi. I did notice a few new veins but that may be to me getting leaner but I think I would attribute some of that to the Powermax. Wish my iphone would take better pics and that my hands could be steady enough to snap these pics but the veins usually would show out on a pic so I scrapped most of the pics I took. There are a few in this post showing some veins that were way more prominent in real life.
    4/5


    Other notes:

    • Not sure if it was something in the Powermax or if it was just being able to go way harder during workouts with Powermax but I experienced a bit of weight loss and it seems to be mostly fat. I dropped about 6 pounds in the month using Powermax, all while upping my calories by about 600 for 3 of those weeks.
    • I felt genuinely better and more upbeat on workout days when using Powermax. The mood enhancement was a little below par than Alphamine for me but it was very close. I might just respond extremely well to something like PLCAR since I had never tried it.


    Comparisons:
    Pump - Equal or a little better than Hemavol
    Energy - Cleaner energy than White Flood, Jack3d. Better all around energy than Full Blown Extreme
    Focus - Out of this world but I have never taken any focus supps. Compared to adderall, about as close as your gonna get with a preworkout I would think. I didn't take another one the entire time I was logging.
    Mood Enhancement - Little less than Alphamine

    Overall I would give Powermax a 5/5. This is my new #1 preworkout. I will be giving Enhanced a shot so at the end of this week I will update this on to how it compares to with Powermax.

    Thanks so much to Adizzle1, Dr. Veritas and Performax for letting me log this. It was truly a pleasure and I will be purchasing Powermax soon. I'll also be on the lookout for any new stuff you guys bring to the market since this product was so well developed, I'm sure that will go into all of your products.

  15. In late, and it is over.

    I caught up on the log though brother. Good job with it and I know first hand that PowerMax is a super premium PWO that most people would really love.

    I totally agree with this statement. The stim effect is consistant and I am not building a tolerance to PowerMax at all, which is uncharacteristic of me because I usually build a tolerance to stims really quickly, like a week!!

  17. Thats amazing. That seems to be the downside of using high stim products, especially those containing "amphetamine" analogs(Jack3d cough cough), increasing tolerance and more fluctuations in delivery.

    PowerMax just works, no words to explain it. People will have to try it for themselves!
