  1. Upping my Performax with Powermax - Sponsered


    First off, big shout out to Adizzle1 and Performax for allowing me to log their preworkout Powermax. Pretty stoked on it since I have been looking for a new preworkout for a little bit. Can't wait for this to get here Thursday.

    Stats:
    5'8" 185 lbs
    20 years old
    Continuing my cut using IF and CKD
    Using 5/3/1 with periodization for accessory work

    Previous Pre-WO's:

    Jack3d, FBX, White Flood, Hemavol, random samples here and there

    In this log, I'll be updating with my workouts, some pics to show pump and my evaluations of the product.

    Areas of Focus:
    Energy (Intensity and Endurance)
    Pump
    Vascularity
    Focus
    Taste
    and any other things I feel while trying out this product

    I will only be using PES Erase, USP ModernBCAAs (used when fasting) and a multi-v while logging this. Dropping all other stims for the most part (coffee here and there) so I can get the full energy effect of the product.

    Can't wait to get this started!


  2. Hell yea brother, really excited to see how you like it. Im also glad you tried those pre workouts, stim feeling should be similar to something like white flood but a little stronger is what most people report. And the pumps should be similar to hemavol, again this is what users have reported so far! So you should love it!!

  3. Thanks bud! If the stim effects are more than White Flood and pump effects on par with Hemavol, I will be a huge fan. I am going to do an upper body workout tonight with 2 scoops Hemavol and take some pics to get a baseline of what me with a pump looks like so I can compare it to Powermax

  4. Received mine today. Already lifted today so tomorrow will be the starting day with squat day. Couple pics to get this started:

    Thanks man. If its alright I'm gonna start with 2 scoops since I used my samples at 2 scoops each. Those pump pics were on 2 scoops hemavol and the pics don't do em justice. I had spider webs on my forearms and I couldn't fully extend my arms fully my tricep pump was so big. Last time I got that was the Powermax samples I had so I'm super pumped to start the log tomorrow

  7. Your stats parallel mine, I'm in this. Murder it joh! How do you like 5/3/1 ? I'm switching it up to either that or GVT tomorrow or next week. Would love to see the feedback on 5/3/1 as I've already dabbled in gvt before .

    I love 5/3/1. It's been great so far for progressing each week. I do accessory work with the Periodization bible so my sets still stay high. I'm a big fan of heavy weight/low rep and so this works out for me.

  9. Had my first day with Powermax and I am loving it so far.
    First impressions:
    Mixability: Took about 20 seconds to shake up 2 scoops into 15oz of water. Completely dissolved, no little pieces at the bottom, a little foam at the top but it went away within 5 seconds or so.
    5/5
    Taste: Tasted pretty good, a little bit like cough syrup with the after taste. Not the best fruit punch I've had but not the worst
    4/5
    Intensity: Drank it about 25 minutes before my workout and right as I got the gym I had great energy and was able to explode out of parallel on squats. Plenty of energy to superset roman chair knee raises and back raises.
    5/5
    Endurance: My lift was pretty short today but worked on quick movements and little rest. I could have stayed in the gym longer but I went to play hockey. After a heavy squat day, I feel like this was keeping me going during the 1+ hour of drop in. My legs were heavy but they kept moving and I was going pretty hard around the rink.
    5/5
    Pump:
    My quads were rock solid while lifting. Felt like they were gonna burst out of my skin. Calves were pumped up as well. About on par with Hemavol, maybe a little less but my legs are pretty solid as is so it's hard to tell.
    4.5/5
    Vascularity:
    I didn't notice any extra veins popping up and my legs aren't veiny as is so this one is hard to tell on leg days.
    TBD
    Focus:
    Driving to the gym I could start to feel it kicking in. I was only focused on the road and barely listened to the music at all. Once I got to the gym I was only focused on my lifts. Rest time was spent looking at the weights, drinking some water and wanting to hop back in the rack. Fantastic.
    5/5

    I am even more excited on Powermax now and can't wait to get back in the gym tomorrow for bench day.
    My lifts for anyone that is interested:
    Squat:
    5 reps x 135 lbs
    5x185
    3x205
    3x225
    3x245
    7x255

    Supersetted Roman Chair Knee Raises and Back Raises
    RCKR:
    50 reps total

    Back Raise:
    10x10
    10x25
    10x25
    10x35
    10x35

    At this point my back was pretty pumped and it was hard to hack squat so I only did 3 sets
    Hack Squats:
    10x180
    10x180
    10x270

  10. Thanks for the detailed introduction of yourself. Seems like you and I both share very similar tastes in supplements. Especially one of the more recent additions to my list, Hemavol. Powermax reminds me alot of what I experience when taking Hemavol, but with a badass kick in energy. Stoked for this log and upcoming updates.

  11. Ya I was missing my energy kick from the preworkout with Hemavol and now its basically best of both worlds with Powermax concerning pump and energy. Big fan of your guys' product right now and I'm hoping it can help me keep progressing through my lifts.

  12. I agree completely, the guys over at Perfomax Labs really knew what they were doing when designing this. Jitters and bouncing off the wall energy was cool when I was 16, but now its all about the product that helps take me to the next level. The pumps along with a steady flow of energy, really had me motivated and racking plates like nobody's business.

    We all remember our first energy drink or encounter with caffeine

  14. Damn I am impressed. Had a great chest day. Arms were pumped, chest was pumped. I'll add some more thoughts later.

  15. Didn't get a chance to update this Saturday or Sunday since I got busy and I can't sleep right now so I figure I'd update it.

    Intensity: Drank it about 30 minutes prior to lifting. Again, came on strong and smooth with the energy and I was able to bust out a good workout.
    5/5
    Endurance: Did bench day on Saturday and felt like I had so much gas in the tank. Had to leave only because I had plans but damn, I could have added a few more lifts and been good to go.
    5/5
    Pump:
    Huge arm pump. Like literally couldn't straighten my arm my tris were so big. Looked like I was flexed for the next 2 hours and had girls commenting on my arms. Loving it
    4.5/5
    Vascularity:
    This is where it shined for me. I had veins I didn't even know abut popping out for my forearms and shoulders. This was an amazing look and I had to stop myself a few times from admiring my pump and veins in the mirror during my rests.
    5/5
    Focus:
    Again, driving to the gym I could start to feel it kicking in. Got to the gym, sat down on a bench, busted out my warm up sets and had complete mind muscle connection. Focused completely on completing the lifts with solid form and really feeling my muscles work. Felt awesome
    5/5

    Workout looked like:
    Bench:
    5 reps x 95 lbs
    5x105
    3x125
    5x145

  17. Another great workout, Awesome!

    Glad you mentioned "Muscle Mind Connection" It something that I've looked for when using past PWOs. The formulation really allowed me to experience that kick and high energy the right way, more focus and motivation, less uncontrolled/jittery energy that detaches from the muscle mind connection principle.

    Looking forward to your next update. Train Hard!

    Thanks man. And ya the focus aspect for me is huge. One of the reasons I didn't like White Flood that much was the lack of focused energy. I was stimmed up but yet my mind wasn't on point. Powermax has been huge in this element. All of my energy and focus are on the lift

  20. Awesome, ive always been a fan of Hemavol so when powermax came out i was happy to get something with similar pumps without having to buy another energy product! We've heard that quite a bit, and hemavol is an awesome product so really says a lot!

    Late deadlift workout tonight. Can't get into the gym til about 11 with my group project. Might go 1 scoop so I'm not too stimmed. Or just go 2 scoops and use some melatonin and hope I can get to bed before 3. Luckily I have no class tomorrow so I can sleep in
    Justin
    Instagram: legsthesizeofkegs

  22. Took 2 scoops at 10:50, got to the gym around 11 and killed it! I had so much drive for being such a long day. Woke up at 5 am to study for a test and do a whole lot more school stuff. Everything was on par with what I said before. Pumps were huge, for example, I was doing seated leg curls and the first set I could put the support pad down 2 notches, by the 3rd set my legs were rock solid and I could only go down 1 notch and that was even a tight fit.

    Deadlift day:
    Hack Squat:
    10 reps x 180 lbs
    10x270
    10x270
    10x360
    10x360

    Deadlift:
    5x95
    5x115
    3x135
    5x175
    3x195
    10x215 New PR!! Full disclosure, I had never done deadlifts before starting 5/3/1 in December so I took it slow and built up but I busted out these 10 reps. I am sure I could do even more if I was well rested. Wasn't even planning on going that high and around 6 reps I started to slow down so my form would be consistent and I got 4 more reps. My body and mind were on the same page pulling. Loved it

    Leg Curls:
    10x70
    10x85
    10x100
    10x115
    10x130 PR

    Hanging Knee Raises:
    30 reps total

    Another killer workout. I'm going to have to pick up a few more tubs of this even before my log is done even tho I have full bottles Enhanced and Hemavol sitting on my shelf already. Love it

    Look no further haha. Just finished up my workout.

    Took 2 scoops at 1:10 and headed to the gym. I have been draggin ass all week battling tests and projects so I needed the stim today. And I sure did get it. Like usual, energy slowly creeped up and so did focus to the point where once I got to the gym at 1:30, I could feel it was gonna be a hell of a day. With no plans for the rest of the day, I did more of an endurance workout and Powermax did not let me down. After I did my 5/3/1 of overhead press (8x120 PR!), I worked around to 21 more sets of lifts. Did incline, db rows, bent over rows, lat pull down and tricep pushdown. Kept on cruising through everything so I ended it with 20 minutes on the bike doing about 4 miles. Extremely impressed with Powermax. Usually I am spent after 15 sets of accessory work to be too tired to do even more set and some cardio but I kept on going. Pumps are here with me still from pushing that weight. I am pretty amped up so sorry if this is droning on haha.

    OHP lift for today:
    OHP:
    10 reps x 45 lbs
    5x60
    5x70
    3x80
    5x95
    3x105
    8x120 New PR!

    Incline:
    10x65
    10x75
    10x95
    10x95

    DB Rows:
    10x75
    10x80
    10x85
    8x90
    10x80

    Bent over rows (New to me still, just started incorporating them last week):
    10x115
    10x135
    10x135
    10x155

    Lat Pulldown:
    10x90
    10x105
    10x120
    10x120
    6x135

    So pumped up after these last 3 that it was almost painful. Like that skin shredding pump that just wants to burst out.

    Tricep Pushdown:
    10x80
    10x90
    8x100*

    *Skin was so tight I couldn't get the full contraction on the last set, went down as low as I could but not all the way down

    Endurance factor of this product is huge. Still got a good amount of energy but it's not cracked out. My arms, chest and back are feeling fuller than usual even now but at the gym I felt shredded.

  26. Hell yea, it sounds like a killer workout, im doing 5/3/1 today with OH press as well!

    Endurance is one of the main points for Powermax so im glad your noticing it! Keep up all your hard work!

    Thanks man it really was killer but I powered through with a little bit of help from Powermax. What are you doing for accessory work with 5/3/1? I've been doing periodization bible but am always open to new things
    Justin
    Instagram: legsthesizeofkegs

  28. I personally do more bbing type workout. I like using 5/3/1 then doing a bb style to follow up it, i still get good power on bench, squat, oh press and deadlifts but also still good muscular development from higher reps and more isolation work. Best of both worlds IMO.

    If your jsut going to pure strength i would say the westside barbell method is prob. more efficient.

    Bump for Deadlifts. Arguably one of the most crucial exercise movements in any training program.
