    Glad you've enjoyed your time with Ritual. It's the kind of preworkout that allows you to push yourself to the limit and then some.


  2. Great power in those lifts! Whats your PR on bench and incline DB press? I've always liked incline db press the most for hitting chest.

    I'm so determined to hit that 315 bench in a couple months.

    haha, That's a loaded question for me. A year and a half ago I hit my PR on bench, 405. About a month after that I suffered a rotator injury and did not bench whatsoever for close to 6 months. Over the same time period I went though a major lifestyle change. I was collegiate football lineman, and after my career I decided it was time to live healthier and lean up. I lost about 60 lbs, which did not greatly effect my strength, but did have an impact. When I resumed benching, I was limited in how I trained and still stayed away from flat.

    About a month ago, I decided to get back into strength training and flat bench. If my life depended on it, I'm willing to bet the most I could put up right now is ~350.

    I don't really know how much I could incline DB press, I usually work incline DB with high volume and slower reps, rarely going over the 100's.


    Good luck on gettin the 315, that is definitely a milestone that is rewarding. Are you using any training system to work towards it?

    At the moment I'm focusing on rehabbing my shoulder, had a bit of a set back, but I should be back at it soon. Not sure what program yet, I'll be training with a local powerlifter who knows his stuff when it comes to routines.

    that sucks! take that injury serious. I made some crucial mistakes that I wish I could take back. I opted out of surgery and just did rehab. My shoulder will never be the same.

    superset/
    V-pushdowns 15,15,15,15
    EZ Curl- 105x12, 105x12, 105x12
    superset/
    Fat Bar Closegrip press- 185x15, 205x15, 225x12 (paused about three inches off chest)

    I hear ya! This is the second time I've hurt it bad about 5 years ago and it always seemed to bug me a bit, but it was the rotator cuff before, this time I have a feeling it's a small shoulder separation since it's visually different now compared to my right shoulder, but it's finally starting to improve.

    Nothing like injuries getting in the way lol

  11. ANS Ritual Final Review


    ANS Ritual Final Review & Thoughts

    Energy: 9/10- A very smooth Energy that hits hard and last the entire workout. I had no experience with jitters, crashing, or affecting my appetite.

    Endurance9/10- I don't really notice this much with typical PWO, but after examining my workouts after they were done, there were definitely moments when I was able to get more reps then I would have presumed.

    Mixibility 9/10- I have mixed with just a spoon, and it mixed right up, there were some particles left at the bottom, but no big chunks. Shaking is perfect.

    Taste 8/10- It smells absolutely amazing. The taste is also smooth with nothing overpowering.

    Pump 9/10- I am impressed, I rarely can tell the difference between most preworkouts and any pump feeling, but Ritual did seem to provide some added pump.


    Once again thanks to everyone over at ANS, this was my first experience with this company and I am very impressed. Thanks to all that followed as well.
