Tutons ANS Ritual Run

Page 2 of 2 First 12

  1. Alright guys! Killed my back workout last night! I had to go at around midnight. (Still awaiting chance at getting a new car, so I am still bumming rides ; ( Anyways. It was back day, and I'm off work today, si I wanted to try something.

    I took 3 scoops of ritual. Yes 3. I was nervous to do it, but my god, that was honestly the best workout of my life. I went the whole workout and never once felt fatigued, and even felt stronger during my one arm rows than usual. I know 3 scoops probably won't work for most, but for me, it was amazing. I might do it again tonight. Here was my workout. all done with 1 sec explosive 4 second negative unless stated

    T Bar rows
    1 Plate x 15
    2 Plates x 12
    3 Plates x 10
    4 Plates x 6
    Drop set here, all done explosive no negatives

    4 plates x 6
    3 plates x 8
    2 plates x 9
    1 plate x 12

    Was pumped beyond belief at this point. If not for the focus I had from this pre, I probably would have taken a pic haha

    One arm rows (I do these on side of bench, will get video next time)
    70lb x 15
    105lbs x 10
    115lbs x 8 (still felt light)
    135lbs x 6
    140lbs x 4 (could've gotten more, but without good form)

    Nautilus Pull down machine Loose handles let's you dictate angle, I love this machine
    150lbs x 12
    200 lbs x 10
    250 lbs x 6 (machine weight on this has to be off, Stacked it)
    Drop set no negatives
    250 lbs x 6
    200 lbs x 9
    150 lbs x 8
    100 lbs x 9

    Rack pulls. No negatives here (I alternate between rack pulls and deads each workout)
    225 lbs x 8
    315 lbs x 8
    405 lbs x 8
    465 lbs x 6

    Lat pull down machine (straight up and down, no leaning)
    150 lbs x 10
    160 lbs x 8
    Drop set
    160 lbs x 8
    130 lbs x 7
    100 lbs x 10
    At this point I can safely say my lats were pushing out of my tank, and I loved it. I looked thick.

    That was it for the night. Feels like a lot less typing it out that's for sure haha. I will repeat one thing, this really was one of the best workouts I can remember having on back day. I haven't tried the 140s on one arm rows in awhile as I Doing A Lot Of TUT. But I felt strong, and was not disappointed. Diet has remained the same. A ton of ground turkey and siracha. So so so good. I'm working out at 9 pm to I got so expect an update right after unless I pass out. Haha.

    Last but not least. Here is a pic of my back semi pumped at the end of the workout

  5. Maybe I'll try 2 scoops pre and 1 scoop intra one day lol.

    1500mg of Agmatine in 3 scoops! That would cause some crazy pumps!

    I've actually have gone down half a scoop, 2 scoops have been rushing me out, which is nice, no pre-workouts seem to give me the energy that Ritual gives me.

  8. Hey guys got super busy with work (but was a damn good couple of days, got recognized regionally by my boss so mood was up)

    I worked out with one of my good friends I never see, who wanted to do Power Legs and Power chest, something I had never done. I also was nervous as I have been avoiding power for awhile, and knew I would be weak. Either way, I went ahead and did it. I took 2.5 scoopa this time, haha. This is how it went

    Back Squats Supersetted with Flat Bench
    135x15. SS 135x10
    185x10. SS 185x10
    185x10. SS 225x9
    225 x7 SS 225x6
    225x5. SS 225x5
    275x3 SS 225x5.

    Squats are first number bench second. Squats have always been a weak point for me, due to longer limbs small hips and not training them enough when I was younger. I had PLENTY of energy from Ritual during this, which was nice because I'm almost sure otherwise I would have been drained by now. Next we went onto incline DB bench and SS with walking lunges

    Incline DB followed by Walking Lunges
    85x10. SS 55x16
    85x7. SS 55x16
    85x7. SS. 55x14. (I was dead at this point haha)
    85x5. 55x16. Pushed through to finish last set Honestly one of hardest and most simple workouts I have done, and I am BEYOND sore in ass and quads right now.

    I can't emphasize how much Ritual helped in terms of Focus and endurance in this workout. Another note that I finally pinpointed is I find the 2 to 3 scoop range makes me aggressive towards the weights. I love it. I found myself in a zone particularly on squats, and I made sure I was pushing myself to the point that I knew I couldn't complete another rep. I even had a pump in my chest which was not expected from a power workout.

    Anybody have any questions about anything I am leaving out? I end up typing these at work as my workouts are late at night and I pass out as soon as I get home haha. I feel as I'm missing something.

  12. Quick update about Ritual itself though, unlike most pre workouts, it hasn't seemed to require more and more for same effect tolerance hasn't built up, and I quite like that

    This is what I'm loving about it the most right now, it just never gets old this pre-workout, keeps going full force every dose!

    What I love about it is as well. A great value to have in a preworkout.
