    This is my Ritual. ANS Ritual, and some Dilate sometimes.


    Thank you, ANS, Judgement Day, and reps. Got my Ritual awhile back. I've only had samples of the apple variant so I was way excited to run a whole tub. I also have a bottle of Dilate I've only got into a handful of times. Usually only use half a dose at that. When I took Ritual in the past I used it only on squat days and nailed PRs. From then on I knew Ritual was something special.

    Some Ritual info:
    What is in RITUAL™?
    The CORE SIX
    Beta-Alanine: a non-essential amino acid, beta-alanine combines with the amino acid histidine to form carnosine. In muscle cells carnosine buffers against the hydronium ions and lactic acid which form during exercise and can lead to muscle fatigue. Supplementation with beta-alanine can improve strength, endurance and enhance recovery. Each scoop of RITUAL™ contains 1.6 g of beta-alanine.*

    Citrulline: The 'pump' amino acid, L-Citrulline has been clinically researched to enhance nitric oxide levels better than arginine. Studies suggest that citrulline increases the rate of ATP synthesis during exercise and greater phosphocreatine recovery after exercise. Citrulline also reduces lactic acid and ammonia levels, which leads to better muscle performance and increased endurance.*

    Creapure®: The purest available Creatine monohydrate. Creatine is critical to the energy replenishment cycle of muscle. Regular use of creatine can enhance power, endurance and energy levels while exercising allowing you to train harder longer and amplify results.*

    Trimethylglycine: Also known as betaine anhydrous, this amino acid analogue helps reduce homocysteine levels in the body and stimulates production of creatine in muscle cells. TMG can act as a methyl donor and prevent dehydration of cells. As a supplement TMG can also amplify power output and training volume.*

    AgmaPure™: This patented form of 'green' agmatine sulfate is not chemically synthesized, rather derived by fermentation, making it the highest purity material available. Agmatine has several functions in the body including: amplifying nitric oxide production, stimulating the release of catecholamines, increasing GnRH levels and even potentially testosterone levels.*

    Xanthaurine: The active ingredient from Styphnolobium japonicum is an incredibly potent antioxidant. Its effects have been extensively studied for the promotion of enhanced endurance. Less known however is its powerful ability to amplify nitric oxide levels 300% acutely after ingestion, making it core to the 'pump' properties of RITUAL™.*

    The PERFORMANCE PROTOCOL
    N-Acetyl-L-Tyrosine: the highly soluble form of the amino acid L-Tyrosine, and an important precursor in the production of epinephrine, dopamine and norepinephrine. These hormones contribute to elevated energy, mood and mental alertness.*

    DN1000™: This trademarked form of Dendrobium nobile extract is concentrated 1000%. Traditionally dendrobium is used for its antioxidant and immunomodulatory properties, and has been studied for its ability to enhance the body’s response to disease.*

    Caffeine: Caffeine is a powerful mental stimulant. It combats fatigue and can promote increase alertness and energy levels.*

    PEA (Phenylethylamine): PEA is a monoamine alkaloid that can improved mood, mental acuity, energy and focus. Although relatively short-lived, when combined with and MAO inhibitor, the effects can be prolonged.*

    Hordenine: this stimulant doubles as a potent MAO inhibitor and promotes the extended effects of monoamine compoounds.*

    Higenamine (Norcoclaurine): Naturally occuring in plants like Nelumbo nucifera, higenamine (or norcoclaurine) is a powerful bioactive alkaloid that acts as a beta-adrenergic receptor agonist, and can trigger an elevated thermogenic and anabolic response.*

    AstraGin™: This patented combination of Astralagus and Panax notoginseng amplifies the absorption of amino acids and vitamins. This maximizes the impact of the full-dosed RITUAL™ formulation.*

    Took Ritual today before deadlifting. Within in minutes I felt some face tingling and I really got motivated to lift. In fact I almost put lifting off till tomorrow. Using ritual was a welcome change since recently I've been using a caffeine as the only stimulant preworkout. Had a really great session where some of the reps went up like butter. 395 felt like 135. Finished the training drenched in sweat, feeling awesome.

    I actually have a pretty good tolerance to it but I felt it nonetheless. I took one scoop, I forgot to say.

    Just gave my wife a half a scoop, excited to hear how she likes it. The only preworkout stuff she's ever had was cardio igniter and focus xt a few times.
    Will report back!

    The wife had a great training session. She added weight to her third set of 10 squats and added 4 reps on to her last set of deadlifts. Very proud of her. She didn't say anything about the taste, and she always let's me know if what I give her tastes bad. When I asked her about how she felt during training she said and I quote, "It really gave me a lot of energy to get through the workout. Being a mom with no sleep, that is the best thing you can give me." I noticed she had some sexy quad and butt pump going on.

    I've been using between 1.5-2 scoops of Ritual, that's normally everyone's sweet spot.

    Well I used 2 scoops and fuk'n killed it. When I was going down to squat my 4 year old grabbed a book and said "Dad will you read me a book?" Well I never say no to this so I sat there feeling like I was going to explode, it was kind of funny.

    Incredible power output, great focus, big energy and intensity. 2 scoops was pretty crazy. Big time face tingles lol.

    I used a scoop of ritual to do the second half of my bench press day training. Really hammered my back. Some possible PRs in there.

    Pendlay row
    135x5 150x3 175x2 190x1 200x1 215x1 225x7 245x2

    Smith machine bentover row
    120x10 210x6/5/6/5 260x4/4/4 120x12

    Slight incline smith machine bench press
    45x40 80x20 120x10 135x8 155x5

    Pendlay had great form. Smith rows focused on explosiveness and driving elbows back. Smith slight incline hits upper chest hard.

    Boom. Scoop and a half for some kickass deadlifting. Ritual really helped me to just pull like hell and do work. Had tingly face within minutes of drinking the ritual. Tasted great too.

    Deadlift double overhand
    255x5 305x3 355x2 385x1 410x1 435x1

    Under/over
    460x1/1 felt easy added weight
    470x1 easier still
    475x1 this was my 1rm 12 weeks ago.

    Sorry for long delay. Took a week off and did a mock meet.

    Took 1 scoop ritual with a little carbs(lucky charms), and Xtend before training. Dynamite pulling! I was at work when I took it and I was talking to people and I could really feel it kicking in.

    I do what I want cycle 1 day 2

    Deadlifts

    135x10 185x6 225x5 275x4 315x3 365x2
    405x1 every minute for 20 minutes.

    Switched to over/under rep 9. Belt on rep 13. Collapsed in sweaty heap after rep 20.

    2" deficit deadlifts
    315x3/3/3

    2" deficit deadlift snatch grip
    315x1/1/1

    I've heard people say a minute on a treadmill lasts forever, well I've never seen a minute go by so quick as when doing a deadlift every minute!

    One scoop ritual, 3 dilate pills, which is less than a full dose. In fact the bottle calls 6 pills a dose if you are over 200 lbs. I've used this before with only 2 pills a session and it gets the job done. Anyway you feel the dilate the same way you feel the ritual in your face except you feel it all over your body. I achieved a pump much quicker than normal and powered through the sets. I really noticed the quicker pump on preacher curls. I noticed veins I don't usually see as well.

    I do what I want day 3.

    Set of 8 chin ups

    DB bench press neutral grip
    45x8 55x8 65x8 75x8 90x5 70x7 50x10 30x20

    Pendlay row
    135x8 185x5/8/8/8

    Slight incline smith machine bench press
    100x12 120x12 140x12 160x7

    3 sets preacher curls

    My chest hurts more than it has in a long time. The neutral db press really increases bottom end ROM.

    It makes you swole up. Just kidding, none that I've noticed. I've taken it about 6-7 times. I will watch out though because I am going to be using it a lot now.

    I'm logging Ritual/Dilate as well at the moment and while not a big issue I've noticed it gives me the worst gas ever lol...

    No big deal except for my wife. HAHAHAHA.

    Took a scoop and a half for squats. I was tired and had some recovery issues but went pretty well. Still hit that ritual squat PR. Always do.

    Do what I want day 4.

    Squat day

    185x8 225x3/4 275x2/3 315x2/2 365x3
    Wraps on. Wrap virginity gone.
    365x1 405x1
    405x2 PR
    405x1
    365x2

    Front squat
    135x8 225x6/2/5 135x16

    Awkward day, everything felt really heavy, mock meet was 7 days ago and that crazy deadlift session was Monday. So recovery was an issue. Squatting in wraps was interesting, but fun. Legs super hurt after! Gonna be in pain tomorrow!

    Lifting from Friday. Took a scoop ritual and three dilate pills. I did volume for pumps, and boy did I get them. I think my delts were more swole than ever before. I had a couple farts, can't say it was from the dilate lol.

    Heaping scoop of ritual is all I need. Got my ritualistic squat PR. Ritual is easily my favorite preworkout when squatting.

    Squat
    Many Warmups
    300x8/8/8/8/10

    Front squat
    225x3 275x2
    315x1 PR
    315x1 PR match
    320x1 PR

    Rack pull above knee then Powershrug, reset each rep
    135x10 225x10 315x10 405x10 495x10

    Not bad for spending all yesterday on the couch, barely able to move or eat.

    Let's start out with this program.
    http://www.muscleandfitness.com/trai...ps/dead-simple

    I was skeptical but Mike O'hearn wrote it. I thought it was fate that the sample numbers were what I needed to use...

    **** me it was tough.


    Took 1.5 scoops Ritual. Kind of wished I'd taken 2. Took me like 90 minutes.

    Deadlift
    135x10 225x10 320x4 360x4 420x3/3
    480x1 I failed on 2. Dropped some weight to attempt to finish
    425x3/3/3/3

    Bottom half deadlift
    300x4 360x4 420x4/2 couldn't finish dropped weight 405x4/1

    Top half deadlift (rack pull)
    360x4 420x4/4 480x3/3 540x2/2/2/2
    These were easy.

    Bottom half deadlifts were awesome and hard. Its really apparent I need these in my life. Sad I haven't been doing these for a year. Top set on deads wasn't there at all, I'll chalk it up to recovering from sickness. Followed training with a 1200 calorie shake.

    Took a scoop Ritual and three dilate pills. Had a pumptastic session. Swole as I've ever been before. Even at my bodyweight and standing at 6'3" 3 pills gets the job done.

    1.5 scoops ritual. Love how amped up and ready to lift I get. This program really puts ritual to the test, the constant force you have to generate for all the pulls is really rough.

    Deadlift day B

    4" deficit deadlifts
    135x10 225x10 300x3 360x3/3 390x2/2/2/2 PR I guess, never did such high weight with so big a deficit.

    Deadlift
    300x4 360x4 420x3/3 480xfail
    380x3/3/3/3/3

    I'm pretty sure this program is impossible to run as programmed. The sample numbers are for a 500lb deadlift max, which I have done, and there is so much volume leading up to the 480 set, both days, there is just no way. Anyway, been eating like a champ, bw 246.

    Pumps Are Ridiculous! Especially after long days of work 12hrs in the frozen tundra at night or after chasing two babies all day! It revives me just enough to so damage. Loving it.
