  1. Good update man, I'm glad that you're using this in a variety of settings and getting good results! Pumps are great as well, when I train for Hypertrophy I get so pumped that it's hard to dry off after a shower!


  2. Honestly i think people notice better pumps with a little food in the system because of the nutrient partioning effect of Agmatine, i know Agmatine works a lot better for me that way.

    Agreed Agmatine's ability to store glycogen and retain water within the muscles. So it is best to have adequate hydration and glycogen present to maximize the pump.

    Well then today's workout should be a hefty test as ill be on my 24th hour of my fast with nothing but about 2gal of water in me. 2.5 scoops here I come

  5. So I took my 2.5 scoops about 15 min pwo. I wa feeling absolutely miserable (angry, tired, generally pissy ha) from not eating. Never did get any real energy or focus through my workout (actually had some severe mind wandering and daydreaming going on) but about 45min in I did start to feel "better" and could def see a good pump and endurance.

    After today's lift I've come to the conclusion that while I do think powermax is a stellar pwo, due to the lack of stims and true "energy" for me it doesn't go well with longer fasts. I also have concluded that the endurance factor is incredible so this could be a really solid addition to a pre workout "stack" for someone like me that wants some stims or extra energy. Might have to try a little mix one of these days and see how that goes.

  6. Yea, i don't think I could ever think of fasting for that long. I did a carb cycle type diet where I'd essentially take them out completely for a few days and even that drained my energy and generally made me pissy as well. You're one of very few that isn't seeing energy from this as it's definitely got stims, especially at 2.5 scoops. I'm anxious to see if this changes when you're going in more fed.

  7. Yea while powermax is geared more for performance it def. should have enough stimulant effect to get a good workout, however i dont think it has enough caffeine or has enough stims to overcome a 24hr fast or being super depleted.

  8. Had a half day of work today so I got in a meal and a shake pwo. Took 2.5 scoops about 35min pre and that seemed to be the ticket. Felt great when I got to the gym, just an all around sense of well being as well as some decent energy. Today was my first leg day with powermax and let me just say that this stuff is perfect for a brutal leg workout. I just didn't want to stop. The best part was shoulders were after legs and I still had a ton in the tank to get some serious work in on them (they're my worst area by far). Overall a great workout and as usual solid endurance throughout. Actually had to force myself to leave ha.

  9. That's what we like to hear! Gotta love that endurance. I workout in the mornings before work and have to literally force myself to leave or I'd be late! One of my favorite aspects of Powermax.

  10. Quick update... 3 scoops fasted first thing this morn. New back and biceps workout was absolutely destroyed. Energy was through the roof and endurance as always was epic. I was still bouncing off the walls over 2 hours after my 1.25 hr workout. Amazing stuff

  11. haha thats awesome! Im glad that 3 scoops treats you well, the idea was to not stuff so much caffeine into 1 scoop like some of these pre workouts which makes it a lot harder to play with the dosing. With Powermax you can do any where from .5 scoops to 3 full scoops so alot of play room.

  12. So here was today's layout:

    6am 5whites, 1c spinach, 1/2c oats

    10am 1/2c oats, 1 sc pro powder, salad w/ salsa

    12:30pm 1/2c oats, 5oz gr beef, salad w/ salsa, 3oz chx

    3pm 1 sc pro powder

    3:30pm 3 sc powermax

    4pm gym- new workout (hiit)/ chest&tris

    So I felt great when I got to the gym, but this new workout was ass. Figured since I'm cutting if try out the "shortcut to shred" program at least for a week and see if that would help add some extra cardio without the cardio ha. Long story short, the workout blows and might as well just be called go sprint for an hour and a half and occasionally pick up a weight.

    I can tell how bad it was because after i finished it I had zero pump, zero muscle fatigue, and was just sweaty as all hell and pissed off. So I resolved this by adding 2 fst-7 sets (1 chest 1 tris) so that I actually felt like I did something beside run.

    I definitely credit the powermax with making my endurance crazy strong through what should have been an exhausting workout but now I have to find a different program since that one just won't do ha.

    3 scoops is definitely my sweet spot as I was able to get a monster pump during my fst sets and those were 1.25hr into the pos workout and almost 2hrs after taking powermax.

  13. Great updates, thanks for the detailed review.

    Also it's nice getting feedback from users administering three scoops. I've yet to gather the courage to push it past 2.5 scoops, but I'm sub 155 lbs. Are you planning to stick with 3 scoops for the rest of your logging experience?

  14. Glad you found your sweet spot! I couldnt imagine doing 3 scoops all the time, the pumps would be insane!!

    Most likely ill stick to 3 scoops on my heavy lifting days, especially legs and back. Anytime I decide to use it for a hiit or cardio day I can't see going above 2. Just don't see any added value for something like that since its not a pump routine and I can get plenty of endurance from 2 scoops.

    Sorry about the shortcut to shred not working out for ya! Last year I ran his Shortcut to Size routine for 3 months to great results, but didn't think I'd try the shortcut to shred. And your review of it basically reaffirmed that! Glad the Powermax kept ya going for that long workout.

    I've been thinking about trying the size for awhile... Just hadn't gotten around to it. I really like Kris Gethin's body by design program. Totally changed my diet and really my knowledge and faith in what that alone can do for you. Gethin's 12 wk hardcore trainer was decent as well but not quite as good IMO. I really liked the workouts in the y3t program as well. The week 3's were just insane. Never had doms like that before. I'd def like to do that again and with a better diet.

  18. Today's dose was 2 scoops about 2.5 hrs after my last meal... This was just a hefty cardio day with some outdoor hill running for about 35 min (really trying to hit the outdoor runs hard these last 6 weeks leading up to my race).

    I putzed around for a bit at work and then getting changed at home so it was about 45 min after drinking it that I finally went to run. Energy and mood were spectacular. I was actually excited to get out and run and this is coming from someone who despises cardio in almost any form that's not a competitive sport. I was able to finish my 3.5mi run about 4 min. Faster today then on Monday and I felt even better.

    Definitely gonna get some of this powermax to have around when I'm training cardio because its beastly for endurance and there is zero crash. Cardio/endurance/aerobic type lifting is definitely the best use for this stuff, at least for me. I like my cracked out feel when lifting but that first work for me for running as I just blow my load out of the gate and then am toast halfway through. No such issue with the powermax between 1.5 and 2 scoops.

  19. Nice update! Gotta love something that can help push ya through cardio!

  20. Yea i enjoy 1 scoop 20 min before my morning cardio and 2 scoops before workout. Personally i dont like the cracked out feel so 2 sc. is perfect, and man cardio is SOO mcuh easier with 1 sc. before.

  21. Today's haul:

    7a 5egg whites,spinach
    10a chx, salad with salsa
    1:30p chx,salad with salsa
    4p 1sc protein powder
    4:35p 3sc powermax
    5:15p gym (legs and shoulders)

    Absolutely kiiiiiillllleeedddd legs today. First time I've squatted in about 4 weeks so it was unreal pain after the first set. The pump I had going in my quads was brutal and when I went to do leg extensions after I was able to see some new definition that I hadn't before.

    Really impressed with the pump I was able to get both in my legs and shoulders considering that I've been on zero direct (veggie only) carb diet the last 2 days. Endurance was epic as usual which allowed me to do legs first and still have the energy/motivation/endurance to do shoulders after. Usually I do shoulders first to get them in before I brutalize my psyche doing squats and leg presses til my legs fall off but it was fun to switch it up and be completely fresh going into the squat sets.

    Only bad part about today was my scooper grazed the bottom of the tub on the last scoop... Sad moment.

  22. Good workout man, and good food from the sounds of it! Very pleased that you were still getting good results with the carb depletion! Also as I said in another log, that sadness of the tub being empty can be fixed by buying a new tub

    Ya I was pleasantly surprised with the pump as I remember someone earlier in the thread saying they had significantly less when carbs were low or they were fasted.

    As for the tub, ill def be picking one up for future cutting cycles as the endurance and longevity without a crash is easily the best I've ever had with any pwo.

    Took 2 scoops before my second run today (one run as soon as I get up and one around lunch on non lifting days- I have half days on fri during the summer)

    Legs are totally dead from yesterday's workout so the biggest hurdle was mental just getting out on the road ha. Once I hit the road it was like my legs just went numb and I was able to crush the run. Barely breathing heavy by the time I wa done so I know my conditioning is getting much better as well as my weight coming down. All good things and def what I needed. This powermax couldn't have come at a better time for me.

  24. Awesome man, glad to hear that we will be included in your future workout plans!

  25. I think I found the ultimate pwo setup... Sex before bed, 8hrs of flawless sleep, sex upon waking, 3scoops powermax and off to the gym.

    Seriously this may have been the most beastly I've felt in my life ha. By the time I got to the gym I was practically euphoric. Energy, mood, focus, all maxed out. 1hr 15 min back/biceps workout plus 25 min cardio and I had to force myself to leave. Just felt totally incredible and all of this fasted.

    The pump I had in my biceps was prob the best I've ever had without super setting triceps. It was literally so good I couldn't even curl my arms all the way up and my last were so jacked after my fst 7 set of tbar rows that I couldn't put my arms down ha. Basically walked out of the gym like the ultimate bro ha
