    Good to here

    I find one of the things with Ritual that sticks out is the amazing muscle endurance you get through a workout and still feel like you can do more once it's over.

    Hit the gym new years eve and I had amazing focus and endurance today. Legs and shoulders are my hardest parts to train. One because they are not my strong points, and two because they aren't as fun to me haha. I did my entire workout and still felt fresh afterwards. Ritual has definitely increased my focus, energy and endurance in the gym. I can see it in the numbers as well as the way I feel throughout the workout and afterwards.
    Shoulder Dumbbell Press: 3 sets of 12(70lbs), 10(75lbs), 8(80lbs) same as last time
    Hammer Strength Shoulder Press: 3 sets of 12(130), 10(140), 8(145) up 5 lbs each set from last week
    Lateral Cable raises: 3 sets of 12(50), 10(55), 8(60) same
    Dumbbell Front Raises: 3 sets of 12(35),10(45), 8(45) same
    Shrugs: 3 sets of 12 (280), 10(300), 8(320) same
    Squats: 3 sets of 12(255), 10(295), 8(325) same as last week but I actually got through the entire set without having to stop
    Leg Curls: 3 sets of 12(150), 10(155), 8(160) up 5 each set
    Leg Extension: 3 sets of 12(160), 10(170), 8(180) up 5 each set
    Sitting Calf Raise: 3 sets of 12(145), 10(155), 8(165) same

    One thing I wanted to add was that this past week and this week I have experimented with two doses of Ritual in my workouts. I have noticed that the two doses does increase my energy and focus a little bit more without causing any side effects such as jitters, nervousness, or head aches. However, I still feel like one dose is all one would need to get the amazing effects of Ritual. The focus, energy, endurance, and pumps are excellent with one serving. The difference between two servings and one is negligible to be honest. A lot of other products I have tried, I have been forced to take two servings just to get the desired effects., not with Ritual. I feel the one dose is more than enough for all your pre-workout needs.

    That's great news. I'm always harping on the endurance attribute of Ritual. It's the one attribute that stands out in the preworkout category. I work out fasted and the endurance alone impressive.

    Great feedback! A workout is a win with 1 or 2 scoops of Ritual, seems like most peoples sweet spots are 1.5 scoops.

    I did back and biceps last night and felt very strong. The gym was crazy busy but I was able to get everything in. I tried just the one serving of Ritual last night and felt the same compared to the two servings, which is nice because I don’t have to double up everytime and waste my Ritual!

    It's dosed so well that those that are looking for less stims, yet want to retain the powerful endurance aspects of Ritual, can go with one scoop and still crush it.

    Just had my last workout with Ritual last night. It would have lasted me longer but I experimented with 2 scoops for a week, and 1.5 scoops for a week. I will be posting my final review shortly.
    Flat Bench Press: 3 sets of 12(1200lb), 10(205lb), 8(235lb) I went up 10lbs each set and on my last set I was able to get the full 8 reps in rather than cutting it short like last time.
    Incline Hammer Strength Press: 3 sets of 12(185), 10(195), 8(205) Up 5lbs each set
    Cable Flies: 3 sets of 12(65), 10(70), 8(75) same as last time
    Weighted dips: 3 sets of 12(75), 10(80), 8(85) up 5 lbs each set
    Incline Skull Crushers: 3 sets of 12(65), 10(70), 8(75) same as last time
    Rope push downs: 3 sets of 12(60), 10(65), 8(70) up 5 lbs
    Dips to failure: 16
