  1. Ritual - Day 8

    Weight - 181

    Since we last spoke, I was getting back in the groove of things. I feel like I'm right back to where I left off in the gym. Strength, endurance, and pumps all way back up. I knew going in that last time, that I still wasn't 100%, but had to get back in there. These last couple of workouts have been awesome! I've got that need to be back in the gym every day again. We went to the father in law's camp in Natchez Sat afternoon, so I didn't get in yesterday.

    Saturday's arm workout was freaking great! Like I mentioned, the strength and pumps and endurance were incredible! I didn't want to stop! Looking in the mirror, I see I don't quite have the size/shape I used to have, but this Ritual is exactly what I needed in a preworkout. Here's a couple of shots from Saturday's workout. This was a little over an hour after the workout cuz I hit the bike for 45 minutes after the weights.




    I'm working tonight and hope I can get enough rest so I can hit the gym on the way home. If not, I'll try & get up early enough to go in before coming back to work tomorrow night.

    I've got a feeling that using Ritual before my workouts might just become a.......... ritual!! Lol.. Sorry, I just had to..
    SEMPER FI!!

    Looking pumped brother. Welcome to the world of Ritual! =)

  5. I've used a lot of combos with pre-workout, to create a complete pre-workout, but with Ritual you don't need anything stacked with it imo, just the perfect complete formula.

  9. Ritual - Day 13

    Weight - 181

    This getting old stuff sucks.. I remember back in the day, I could cut fat like no other.. Now, I clean up the diet and throw cardio in the mix, and I'm still not dropping it like I used to.. Oh well. Determination & discipline, right??

    That's kind of where this stuff has been helping me. I'm hitting the weights, then following up w/ cardio. The last few days, those cardio sessions have been a breeze! The stamina I'm noticing from this stuff is awesome. I hit the gym @ 4am this morning, hitting arms, and then hit the elliptical for another 45 minutes. Felt great! Soaked in sweat too. I'm stuck on the 2 scoops, so it'll go faster, but that's OK. It's worth it! The strength is still coming up and I'm seeing a nice visual difference in the mirror. Before I started this, my body was kind of flat and soft. I'm now showing more shape around all around my upper body and my thighs are getting a little more separation back in them too.

    This morning's workout still has me feeling the pump in my arms. My tri's are still shooting through my long sleeves. Feeling swole!!! The strength wasn't any better this morning, but the strict form and concentration really brought out some more visual size/pumps.

    If I can wake up on time tomorrow, (I set my alarm for 3am, but overslept yesterday & was almost late for work!) I'll hit chest, abs and more cardio. All a part of my morning ritual....
    SEMPER FI!!

  10. The endurance boost from Ritual is worth it on it's own. I'm stuck on 2 scoops as well, it's my sweet spot.

    I'm the same lately, finding it hard to cut like I used too, just switched to the lean gains diet today, I keep reading more good stuff popping up about fasting.

    2 scoops fasted has a huge thermo effect on me. I sweat like crazy in those early morning hours in the gym. Ritual is fantastic for me in that regard.

    I've never tried the keto diet but it seems rough!

    I've fasted all day and now I'm going to pig out on some boneless wings :P lol

  14. Dude, there's no way I could go all day w/o eating. Keto is actually easier than I thought. Plenty of chicken and fish.
    SEMPER FI!!

  15. Ritual – Day 17

    Weight – 178!! WOOT, WOOT!!

    Yes, I’m quite excited about my small amount of weight loss. This Keto is the real deal.. The last time I did the keto diet, I wasn’t running any type of preworkouts that I remember. Now, w/ Ritual, I have all day energy that doesn’t crash out at the end.

    Every workout these past few days has been an improvement from weeks prior. Strength, while not skyrocketing, is steadily going up. I’m also getting more reps out on some exercises as well. I’m thoroughly enjoying every scoop of this stuff!! The only downfall as far as I’m concerned is the beta alanine.. I’ve never liked that stuff. Sure, I understand the benefits of it & everything, but the tingles I get from it just irritate me.. Even from when I first drink it, I feel like I’m getting tingles in my lips! Lol.. That part may be all mental..

    My last workout was shoulders & back. I walked out of that gym feeling sole all the way around. The pump in my lats went from my arm pits all the way down to my hips! Lol.. My delts felt like they were popping out of my shirt later in the evening here at work.

    Rest tonight here at work probably might not happen. I’ll have to go home & sleep & then maybe get up for a gun show @ some cardio..

    Excellent stuff so far!!!
    SEMPER FI!!

  16. Dem Pumps in your lats - from armpits to the hips! lol

  17. Enhanced crushing it like usual. You touched on some really important features of Ritual, and that is gradual strength/endurance increases. The energy lasts me throughout an entire day as well!

  18. Ritual - Day 22

    Weight - 177

    Southpaw, yeah, this stuff is really great as far as all day long. Between the pumps & the energy, having both of those all day long doesn't suck..

    I'm scraping the bottom of my jar... I guess that's what I get for running 2 scoops a day, for almost every day!! It's hard not to drink it, even on off days cuz it tastes so freaking good!!

    This morning's chest workout was crazy! I got minimal sleep (up @ 3am), and felt like a monster in the gym @ 4am! I worked my way back up to the 90's on the flat db presses & felt great! My pecs were FULL when I was done this morning! I could feel them tightening up around 4 this afternoon. Now, @ 9:25pm, I'm feeling tight all over!

    2 scoops is definitely my sweet spot! If any of you haven't tired it yet, give it a shot!! It comes in handy for me cuz of my early mornings. Even when I sleep in, I jump into 2 scoops! The energy & intensity I get in the gym is unparallelled!! I can't imagine what you guys did w/ Diablo!!

    Tomorrow morning, I'll be up & early hitting the gunz before wearing myself out on the eliptical. This stuff is definitely going to be a hit for everyone in 2014!!
    SEMPER FI!!

  19. This mornings arm workout was crazy awesome!! Worked my way up to 90# on the weighted dips. Tri's were feelin it!!

  21. Ritual - day 26 FINAL REVIEW

    final weight - 176

    Before I start, I have to thank the guys @ ANS for giving me this opportunity. We all have plenty of options these days when it comes to running different types of supplements, so I hope that my logs help some of you see what's out there.

    I'll start by saying that I'll definitely be running this again! This tub shined in all areas that we all look for in a preworkout.

    Energy - I'd say that within 15 minutes of administration of the bright blue drink, I was feeling amped & ready to hit the gym! This energy wasn't a shakey, jittery type of energy, but rather a nice, clean sustained energy that I kept LONG after my morning workout.

    Taste - simply - awesome! I never tired of the flavor and always looked forward to drinking it in ice cold water each morning.
    Mixability - definitely easy. I just scooped it into my cup & swirled it around & it was ready to go. Can't beat that. No clumping or anything floating on top of the water.

    Pump - Oh yeah!! This stuff had me pumped from early morning until well after lunch. I felt great all day on Ritual. I always began filling up during my warmup sets, and kept filling up throughout my workout. Not to the point of hindering my workouts, but a definite feeling of muscle fullness all day.

    That's it folks! This stuff is definitely something you should try out it if you've been looking for a new preworkout. It got me to the gym. It got me through the weights. It got me through my cardio. It got me through my day! It also had me in a pretty damn good mood all day too! That might just be the fact that I was full of energy too though.

    Definitely a 5* as far as I'm concerned! Great stuff ANS!! Thanks again!
    SEMPER FI!!

  22. Here's an "after" shot from this mornings workout. Thanks ANS!!

    SEMPER FI!!

    Nice! I gave some scoops to a few buddies up here in Canada and their all hooked now, ANS Performance couldn't have made this pre-workout any better.

    Great final review, Enhanced. Thank you. One thing you touched upon stuck out to me. I workout fasted early mornings and I notice the energy on Ritual is enough to carry me throughout and entire work day. Just another added bonus! Thanks again.

  29. I've been sticking with 2 scoops of Ritual, normally pre-workouts wear after a couple weeks, but I've actually just lowered my dosing to about 1.5 scoops pre-workout, this stuff is no joke!

    Same here. Been using for months and no build up. Not switching pre's anytime soon.
