  1. Thanks sir! Could you try to post a bit on alphamax each update as well? Doesn't need to be a book or anything, just general feelings for the day on it, any noticeable effects etc..

    Yes sir. Will start that tomorrow, if I post, if not then on Thursday. I'm a little busy tonight into tomorrow so I don't know if I'll get on here.

    With that said. Libido is definitely up hahaha

    Hypertrophy days, anywhere from 45 minutes to 1 hour. On heavy days, usually 1 hour and 15 minutes. I foam roll after, so if you want to include that, add another 10 minutes or so. Lifting though is only 45-75 minutes, 90 if I need a little more rest or set up slowly.

    That sucks. For me, 45 minutes would be fine, however, I feel like I would be so rushed and wouldn't be able to focus on my workout.

  9. It took a bit of getting used to, but I find that it helps me stay on task and focused. It's helped improve cardio some as well as I don't rest much in between sets.

  14. Hey man, just checking in! I've been taking my four caps of alphamax a day and the biggest thing I notice is sleep. I'm sleeping pretty good! I'm taking x-gels with it so I don't know what I'm seeing in the gym but I'm definitely progressing.

    Keep up the good work!

  15. Glad to hear your confidence is high AntM! That's one of the great aspects of it, why we named it alphamax!

Also, I woke up at 5 this morning, freezing cold, and had a tough time getting back to sleep. I don't sleep past 7 and when I wake up that close to 7, I fear I will get up later. But anyways, enough of the excuses. It was still a good session, pump was insane.

    My numbers are slowly rising. I can't complain. Realistically, I am at a VERY small surplus of calories, so strength gains won't come too fast. However, the mirror is looking good. Vascularity seems improved too. I'm really tempted to have a refeed day, or maybe on a high carb day lower my fat and protein and up the carbs. I'm a little flat and would love to see how I look full. Also, the other day, I saw a girl at the gym I talk to when we're they're at the same time. It was the first time she saw me since the log. She said to me, are you getting ready to compete right now? I said no why. She said I look a little bigger, but my face is a little sunk in and my taper is better

    Alright, so you'll see most of the exercises have changed. It was my fifth week, so I went to my B workouts. I do this every 4 weeks. I may change this to 6 or 8 weeks. I feel like 4 is too short on heavy days because my body needs the first week to get used to that heavy exercise, of that makes sense. Also, weight was down to 149.6, a lose of .8 pounds from last week. I do .5 miles on the eliptical post workout, but have stopped that as of today. I will just do my normal cardio on Wednesday. Don't get me wrong, I am still making some gains, but feel like the cardio is hindering my growth. I'll see what happens and take it from there. Slept like a rock last night though. I increased cals on my high carb days this week.

  28. Might not be a bad idea to at least do 6 weeks before changing up. I usually will do about 8 weeks before I make any big changes.

  29. I have to say this is probably the best log I've seen on AM since I joined! Your doing a great job, keep it up!

    I was thinking 6-8. I will give it more thought. I am going to stick with this rotation for at least 5 more weeks then switch it up again.
