Hoping to make some good jumps in weight on my 5x5 in at least bench press and military press. They have ALWAYS been weak points of mine mostly from lack of focus on those lifts. I have always put more into my squat and dead lift and now I am making up for it now. I have so high goals by the end of the year one of which is to rep 225 on bench and body weight on standing press. I also want a 315 squat and a 400 dead lift. I figure I only check in at around 150lbs to 155lbs right now so those are respectable numbers.

    Diamond push ups if executed with proper form and controlled tempo really can ignite some new gains. I really feel a solid pump, and can better target my triceps. I feel that switching up to high volume chest/triceps should yield some bigger numbers on your upper body workouts, i.e. bench/military press. Keep up the work, those are very respectable numbers for any weight, especially being sub 160lbs. Story of my life, light weight guy pushing big guy numbers....haha

  2. That is my goal I want a body builder look with power lifter numbers so I figure I can eat like a body builder and train like a power lifter. That is why I am using PHAT right now while I kinda lean out for summer. This winter probably some time in sept I plan on running Wendlers 5/3/1 and mixing it with doggcrapp training (just finish wendlers book). I figure with they right assistance exercises I will pick up some power and still get the hypertrophy I am looking for and then come right back to PHAT since I been liking it a good bit. I like to switch training methods about every 6 months to 1 year helps keep it fun for me. Not sure that is a good idea or not but i haven't quiet landed on a program that makes me 100% happy and I dont know enough to make my own YET.

  3. Rocked a killer lower work out to day still really loving the powermax I will say a solid tip shack the tub before you scoop didnt do that this time and noticed a taste difference course could have been me. Hit some good number today my dead lift was higher but sub par due to my lower back not being 100% from military press yesterday ( apparently I let form slip). PowerMax still kicking in like I would expect and just putting me in a zone really feel solid once the energy and focus comes on truly makes for a great training day all around. Truly happy I got the change to log this stuff such a great product.

    Tuesday - Lower Body power
    Lower bar squats 215lbs 5x5
    Front squat 90lbs x 10 110lbs x 8 120lbs x 8
    Leg extensions 90lbs 2 sets rest paused to 20 reps
    Conventional Dead lift 340lbs x 3 355lbs x 1 355lbs x 1
    Pull through 90lbs 10 x 3 sets (lower pulley so double it for total weight)
    Lying leg curls 2 sets 60 rest pause to 20 reps
    Standing calf raises 190lbs 10x10
    Seated calf raises 180lbs 3x25
    Go big Or go home!!

  8. Great review man, looks like a tough routine. I'll look into any inconsistencies or changes in taste, un/shaken bottle. I'm curious to know if this makes any real difference in both performance delivery and the delicious fruit punch flavor...haha

    It really could have something I ate before I drank it but I just happen to notice and remembered I didnt shake it up. Not sure why its been a habit of mine since my first tub of per over two years ago. My brain must have been some where else. Either way performance of PowerMax wasn't shaken or stirred lol.

    If guys liked my lower work out hold on for todays back work out feeling good and I will have a V taper if its the last thing I do so time to get busy and PUT IN WORK.
    Go big Or go home!!

  10. I got a little crazy today felt the urge to just leave it all in the gym. You can see by my log I added some stuff and took some things to failure I don't normal do much. Since I been getting great clean and just non stop energy with PowerMax I decided to take this to a new level and see what I could do and I must say I am happy with the results. It was a beast of a workout and PowerMax help me burn though it with energy to spare.


    Wednesday - Back & shoulder Hypertrophy
    Barbell rows 140lbs x 12,12,12,12,7 (lost it at the end there)
    Chins 7,6,7,6,6 (not my day for chins how ever I rest paused and pick up my miss reps)
    T bar row 125lbs 15,12,12 rest pause pick up missed reps
    Wide grip pull downs
    80 x 15,15,12 rest pause for missed reps
    Seated cable row 85lbs x 20 95lbs x 15 95lbs x 12 (rest pause at the end of each set to pick up miss reps for a total of 20 reps then added dropset to failure)

    V-bar pull 150lbs 20,15,15
    (rest pause at the end of each set to pick up miss reps for a total of 20 reps then added dropset to failure)

    Smith machine behind neck press 80x6,8,8,6,4 (shoulders felt funny during press didnt push the issue)
    Snatch grip upright row 75x12
    Face pull 110x20,16,15
    Superset
    Dumbbell lat raise 10x20,15,10

    Snatch shrug 205lbs 10x10 (going to keep doing this like the higher volume)


    Hyperextentions
    going to do tomorrow since today was long and I think would be better on lower body day after dead lift.
    Go big Or go home!!

  11. Dude, that's a pretty epic workout! How'd the back feel after all that volume? Glad Powermax could help power you through that beastly workout!

    Back was spent so where my shoulders part of the reason I didn't do the hypertension. I am feeling it pretty good today for sure not something i would recommend doing every work out but once a week I like to kill it. I try to pick a different body group to do it to each time see if I cant get some growth.
    Go big Or go home!!

  13. Ok sorry for the late update but after the last two days I been feeling pretty spent as you can imagine. Still man up and got in a leg work out not my greatest one ever but still walked out of the gym stronger then I was on some of my lifts so it was a good day. Still really enjoying the PowerMax honestly think its what got my thought my leg day after that killer back work out I did. Its seems like its just enough of a kick in the butt to get me motivated and puts enough in my tank to help me push though with out being over whelming. So on to my lift log like I said not epick but i got in some good lifts which makes me happy. I took out hack squats do to lack of time and I hate them lol. The only reason I had them was they where in the program originally. I will more then likely do them on power day instead of front squats not sure love to hear some ideas on the subject.

    Thursday - lower body Hyper Hypertrophy
    Barbell squat 205x5 210x5 210x6 (some reason squats are sucking cant get back in my grove)
    Leg press 210lbs 3 x 15
    Leg extensions 90 x 15,11 (did rest pause to get my 20 reps)
    Romanian Deadlift 225lbs x10 275lbs x8 315lbs x6
    Barbell hip thrust 135lbs 2x10
    Lying leg curls 70lbs 15,10 (rest pause for my 20 reps)
    Seated calf raise 230 4x25
    Hyperextentions 5x12
    Go big Or go home!!

  14. Still a good workout man! I don't think it would hurt to switch hack squats for front squats occasionally.

  15. I figure any day that you lift is a good day. I will probably go crazy July 1st though the 5th i am going on family vacation and I don't think I will have gym access not pleased going to pack my bands and running shoes for sure.
    Go big Or go home!!

  16. Agreed! I was in Mexico about a month ago for a wedding, I made sure to jog a few times at least. Sometimes a few days off from lifting can really help though, all of my lifts went up when I returned and I just felt great!

    It has been a while since i took time completely off from training so I might soak it up a little but thinking cardio is a must since I know there will be AMAZING food there and I am not going to restrict my eating while on vacation I am not going to go crazy either just try and enjoy my self with out going over board and keep my activity level in a good place while still getting some good recovery. That's the plan anyway.

  18. O it has been a good day. Chest and arms was a great Trained hard today felt good had great energy and focus THANK YOU PowerMax really came througth for me. You may notice my volume is lower then it has been there is a reason I emailed layne norton on his program he him self told me that I may be over doing it a little and would see a better gain by cutting back a bit. Also suggested box squats for my hypertrophy leg day to add explosive power and that might help some of my squat issues. Could believe he even responded but per his advice I cut my sets back and limited to only 1 movement per muscle group that I train to failure and only on hypertrophy days. So check out my lift log and see what Powermax did for me and for every one reading this have a good weekend check back on monday for more great stuff to come.


    Icline dumbell press 55lbs x12,12,12,
    decline dumbbell press 55lbs x 12,12,11
    Dumbbell pull over 60lbs 15,15,13
    Cable cross over 55lbs 20,20,15 (drop set to failure)
    Ez bar curl 50lbs x12 55lbs x12,10
    incline curl 20lbs x 15 25lbs x 10,8
    preacher curl 70lbs x 15,15,10 drop set to failure
    Behind head close grip triceps extention 65lbs x 12,9,8
    Dips 15,11,10 (will add weight once I can do (3x15)
    tricept push downs 95lbs 20,15,14
    leg raises 25x4

    Now I know I usually do diamond push ups but switch to dips and felt it WAY more in my triceps also have been told that it should transfer to my bench press and shoulder press better and improve those lifts so going for it.
    Go big Or go home!!

  19. Nice workout man, and good info from Layne as well! You really kicked ass this week and we appreciate your great log

    nice workout...stronger triceps means stronger bench, this is truth!!! ever try kickbacks?
    GOD, FAMILY, COUNTRY!!!

  21. Thanks every one for the support I lift alone don't get that much been pretty cool doing this log like this better then just reviews.

    thebigt: I have tried kick backs I do like them just find it hard to get any weight behind them but I am ALWAYS open to suggestions on how to improve any movement.

    Since my bench is my weakest point next to my shoulder press followed by squats (only because I started going ATG) I am really working on picking that up this winter. I plan to hit wendlers 5/3/1 with a mission and really add some power to all my lifts. I know that program and love it made some good gains off it love it for mass. Now that i got some time with PHAT going to pretty much just switch between these two to keep thing interesting.

    kickbacks are about form not volume...they will make you humble, lol.

  23. So your saying use them as a finisher some thing I focus on the squeeze and pump type deal. Maybe even super set with something?

    exactly...start low to keep form clean, add more weight only when you can handle it while still keeping form[use mirror to check form]...will really pop tri's!!! really adds shape to tri's, gives the horseshoe look everyone talks about.
