    Good session today. Had a serious pump going on, maybe to a pre workout dosing? I was doing the first dose first thing in the morning, but decided to give 30 minutes pre workout a shot. Sleep the past several nights has been amazing.

  4. Yea, we see alot of users liking the pre workout dosing scheme.

  5. Off day today. Just doing some homework now and then going to class later. Hamstrings are shot and so are calves. Probably because of switching from seated to standing raises.

    Macros for the day are 223/148/58 P/C/F

    I think Tuesday is my last dose. I will post the final review on Saturday if that is fine with you. I want to make it decent at least, but have a test on Wednesday and Friday.

    Push Hypertrophy

    Flat DB Press (rep range 8-12, rest 60-90 seconds)

    60x12,9,8

    Incline DB Press (rep range 8-12, rest 60-90 seconds)

    60x8,8,7 +2

    Rested 2 minutes on the last set. I only got 7 reps so did a rest pause and got 2 more. I am going to lower the weight next week. I want to hit my rep range. Doig flat first really made this drop.

    Hammerstrength Incline Press (rep range 8-12, rest 60-90 seconds)

    90x9,9,10

    Pec Deck (rep range 8-12, rest 60-90 seconds)

    Seated Smith Behind the Neck Press (rep range 8-12, rest 60-90 seconds)

    60x8,8,10,9

    Done with a wide grip. All the way down to the bottom of the neck. Weight is plates only.

    Standing Dumbbell Side Laterals (rep range 8-12, rest 60-90 seconds)

    15x12,10,10,9

    Reverse Pec Deck (rep range 8-12, rest 60 seconds)

    Sleep again was amazing. I was happy with today's session, especially since it was an early morning one before work. Tomorrow's will be too. Next week, I am going to switch my pull day and push day around. My triceps felt tired. I know they are not really used in pulling, but they are used to come degree. I think that might be hindering my progress a little on pushing. Also, I know this was probably not the smartest move, but I asked my supervisor to go and grab a cup of coffee with me one day next week. We flirt a little said so I told myself why not. Will keep you posted on that as well. Finally, if you are looking for an awesome food, pick up French Toast flavored Goldfish. They are absolutely amazing and taste just like french toast with maple syrup. You can have them alone, or put them in cereal, sludge, and oatmeal. I had them in cinnamon sludge and cinnamon proats and it was soooooo good. I used cinnamon flavored protein powder.

    The surest way not to fail is to determine to succeed. ~Richard Brinsley Sheridan

    Legs Power (Quad Dominant)

    Front Squat (rep range 3-5, rest 3-5 minutes)

    155x4,4,4,4,5

    Leg Press (rep range 6-8, rest 2-3 minutes)

    450x6,7,6,6,7,6

    First set was feet close together with heels off platform. Second was medium width with heels off. Third was wide was heels off, then repeat.

    Leg Extensions (rep range 6-8, rest 2 minutes)

    175x7,7,7,7,7

    60 Degree Calf (rep range 6-8, rest 60 seconds)

    180x8,8,7,7,7

    Standing Calf (rep range 6-8, rest 60 seconds)

    220x7,7,6,6

    Front squats felt very easy. I will definitely go up next week. I didn't sleep well last night. I had a hard time falling asleep because I had too much on my mind. Woke up around 3 and didn't sleep too well after that. Still felt pretty good though, not lethargic at all. I'm tired now, but work was super busy today. Going to go to bed early tonight. I weighed myself for the hell of it today, not an official weigh in though and I will probably be less than what I was last week. If that is the case, I am going to increase my cals by 50 on 5 days this week and not just 2 or 3 days.

    I find that when we really love and accept and approve of ourselves exactly as we are, then everything in life works. ~Louise Hay

    Upper Power

    Flat Dumbbell Bench (rep range 3-5, rest 3-5 minutes)

    75x5
    80x4,4,3

    Decided on my B weeks I am going to go heavy on DBs versus BB now. I get nervous going heavy alone on BB. Maybe once my strength is better, I will switch over. 75 felt easy, so I decide to do 3 sets of 80 for my working sets.

    Military Press (rep range 6-8, rest 2-3 minutes)

    115x6,6,7

    Up one rep

    Weighted Dips (rep range 6-8, rest 2-3 minutes)

    BW+65x7,7,7

    Up one rep

    V Bar Pushdowns (rep range 6-8, rest 1 minute)

    57.5x6,6,6

    Heavier weight

    Barbell Row (rep range 3-5, rest 3-5 minutes)

    185x4,,4,4

    Up three reps

    Weighted Pullup (rep range 6-8, rest 2-3 minutes)

    BW+15x7,7,7

    Up three reps

    T Bar Row (rep range 6-8, rest 2-3 minutes)

    125x6,6,6

    Done with 25 pound plates for a better contraction. Up 25 pounds

    Barbell Shrugs (rep range 6-8, rest 1 minute)

    315x7,7,6

    Up two reps

    Seated Dumbell Curl (rep range 6-8, rest 1 minute)

    30x7,7,6

    This week, I weighed in at 149.2, a little less...again. So, instead of just increasing cals by 50 on either moderate or low carb days this week, I am going to make the increase on all five days. So, instead of increasing cals by 100-150 for the week, it will be a total of 250. Strength is still going up a little though so I cannot complain. Also, my waist is pretty small, smaller than the beginning of the log.

  16. Strength up, weight down a godsend for most, lol. I think upping your calls that amount will definitely help.

    No, I had an AM dose, but not PM. I don't know how that happened. I was going to possibly throw up the review today since classes got cancelled, but I spent all morning shoveling. Let me see how fa I get on studying today. If I get enough done, review will be up later, if not, then either Friday afternoon or Saturday!

  20. Sounds good, thanks! I was out shivering and shoveling at 530 this morning

  21. Alphamax Final Review

    Strength: Strength increases were subtle, but that was not my main goal. All of my lifts went up in weight during the four weeks despite losing a pound in the four weeks. My goal was to put on a pound. Anyways, all things considered, I am happy with how Alphamax delivered in this department. 9/10

    Pumps: I did not take it pre workout until the very end. My first dose was first thing in my morning. However, when I did dose two caps pre workout, I noticed a major increase in pumps. Sometimes even painful. 9/10

    Sleep: Sleep quality was great. I would wake up only once, sometimes twice to use the bathroom. I would fall right back to sleep and felt very refreshed in the morning, even if I got less than 8 hours which I usually need to function. 10/10

    Libido: Was increased, nothing incredibly high, but it was higher than normal. 7/10

    Body Composition: I lost a pound, but look like I got bigger, at least that is what I was told by a gym goer that I talk with occassionally. Eerything seems bigger or the same size, but my waist is smaller. I am slightly more defined. 9/10

    Misc: Other things I noticed were an increase in appetite, recovery seemed to be improved a little, and confidence/my sense of well being was also pretty high throughout the log.

    Final Thoughts: I would suggest Alphamax to anyone looking for a test booster. It could be used while cutting, bulking, or recomping. Sleep quality definitely shine with this product. Pumps are solid when dosed pre workout. This is probably one of the better test boosters I have tried. Alphamax may not be too well known, but it should be. With a solid price and formula, you cannot ask for more. 9/10
