    You tell me if it has the power to take you to your limits. The stamina was amazing, the pump was ridiculous and I had two weeks layoff and returned like I never left. The weights are in trouble. I'm on nothing else but a preworkout. IAMALPHA. That is all!

    Endurance is off the charts with Ritual. Ergogenic ingredients are dosed highly, especially at two scoops.

    No Doubt! I see why, especially when this is all I'm taking. Slowly BF is decreasing. I see loses everywhere, especially in my back {getting more detail}, lower abs and obliques are stubborn as heck.

    Liking your results so far. Keep pushing it and you'll see even greater results. Routines are sick FYI.

    I dialed it time to time, especially for chest. This is why I moved it mid week to end of week. It takes away the advantage of two days rest and puts the focus on maintaining strength since I'll be sapped by weeks end. The idea is to become stronger with less energy in the tank later in the week.

    @toast and done. Ritual is an awesome preworkout to get you cranking. I'm loving the results and I noticed a bit of leaning effects. Im stoked to finish it out. Next Saturday will be my truest test. I stopped using everything except a preworkout. I have been notified there is a major snowstorm coming so the meet may be compromised. I may have to do a mock meet for myself. We shall see.

    @Had some problems kickoff out in the field and stayed at the site. I will get back on my grind, especially since it's a deload week. Beginning to feel the effects of this work week. 12 hour shifts, 5 hours of sleep, 45minute drive each way to and from gym with 1 hour to prep mind for the evenings work. It's all good. Still takingshots of Ritual mid shift to get through the night. It works very well.

    Thursday, January 30, 2014
    Getting focused this week is winding down and I'm ready to get back to my days off and home gym. Being away from home in a new territory gets old after a while, especially when you have no training partners but I'm still able to pull off what I need to do. Lightweight, lightweight:

    Delts
    Behind the neck press
    135x15
    155x15
    175x12
    195x10

    Side laterals
    35x4x30

    Uprght Row
    95x4x10

    Rear delt raises
    65x4x10

    Front raises

    BB Shrugs
    135x20
    225x15
    315x12
    405x10

    @Ritual makes me feel beastly. Does anyone else feel the same?
