    2014...My quest to become Alpha (SPONSORED)


    AntM's Performax Labs Alphamax Log


    First, I want to say thank you to nicksox15 and the Performax Labs team for allowing me to log AlphaMax. I will update at least five times a week. My first dose will be tomorrow. At the end of the log, I will give my honest opinion about it.


    My Goals


    Looking for leans gains. Maybe 1-1.25 pounds during the log. Strength increases would be nice, but strength is not my primary concern.

    My Expectations

    Looking the the formula, I expect a slight loss in fat, lean muscle gains, and some strength gains.


    My Training


    I recently switched it. I was following a modified version of PHAT before, but this is more different. This will be my second week following this template. I have an A and a B workout for each day, but only switch it every four weeks. With that said, I will be following A workouts for the first three weeks and then B workouts the last week


    Sunday - OFF
    Monday - Upper Power
    Tuesday - Lower Hamstring Dominant (A is heavy and B is hypertrophy)
    Wednesday - OFF
    Thursday - Pull Hypertrophy
    Friday - Push Hypertrophy
    Saturday - Lower Quad Dominant (A is hypertrophy and B is heavy)


    My Diet


    I carb and calorie cycle. I do not have an exact macro split, I will post macros with each day though.


    Sunday - Low carb
    Monday - High carb
    Tuesday - Medium Carb
    Wednesday - Low Carb
    Thursday - Medium Carb
    Friday - High Carb
    Saturday - Medium Carb


    Other Supplements


    NOW B-50
    NP Fish Oil
    NOW Vitamin C 1000
    Universal Uni-vite
    NOW Vitamin D 5000 iu
    ON Creatine Mono
    SAN Titanium Whey
    EvoMuse Gut Health
    Betancourt Pure Amino


    My first dose will be tomorrow. I cannot wait! Stay tuned.

    Starting weight - 150.2 lbs.

    Nothing to report today, it was an off day. It feels weird to have sore quads without the hamstrings being sore. Guess I'll get used to that soon.

    Sounds like a winner! Let me know if you have any questions on dosing or anything. And if you're doing a log, do tell so we can follow along!

    Are you going to log? Throw me a link if you do, I have some X-Gels lying around and if AlphaMax does not disappoint, I might stack them in the future.

    Honestly, I do not know. After my heart transplant, my metabolism was all screwed up. I could only eat 3 small and I mean small, meals a day. Sometimes, people would bring me goodies. When I got out of the hospital. I didn't track macros, just ate sensibly. Once I got back into the gym, I started to track, but have been reverse dieting since I think my metabolism took a hit. If I lose weight, I increase my calories by 100, split up, in the form of carbs. I lost one pound from last week to this week, my total cal intake for the week was 2,339 cals a day. So, higher than that haha.

    If you want the best the world has to offer, offer the world your best. ~Neale Donald Walsch

    Lower Power Hamstring Dominant

    Deadlifts (rep range 3-5, rest 3-5 minutes)

    255x3,3,3,3,4

    The first three sets were done sumo. Last week was my first time ever doing sumo style and my first time deadlifting in a very long time. I didn't like the way it was feeling so switched to conventional style.

    Roman Deadlift (rep range 4-6, rest 2-3 minutes)

    245x8 260x5,5,4

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

    450x6,6,6

    Feet positioned high to hit hamstrings more.

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

    100x7,7,6,6

    Very slow and controlled reps

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

    90x6,6,6,6

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

    160x8,8,7,7,7

    Horizontal Calf (rep range 6-8, rest 1 minute)

    180x6,7,7,6

    So, this is the second week of my new leg workout. My quads were still sore from Saturday which had an effect on some of the lifts. I am going to make my leg days my high carb days to try and combat this. I think I may also lower the volume on my leg days too. 20 sets each session is 40 sets total for legs (not counting calfs) I may go down to 15 sets each session. I will be thinking about this before Saturday.

    Just a quick update. I stated feeling sick yesterday, as in a cold. I don't think it is an infection because my snot is clear. I feel a little better today. I'm hoping one more day, today being a rest day, will take care of the remainder.

    Some nasty stuff has been ripping through our offices at work. I was sick early in the season Sept-Oct, so I have been lucky and missed this round.

    Hope you clear up fast. I ran one of the original logs for AlphaMax and loved it, even though I didn't get to hit my full potential.

    Thanks man. I feel a little better today than yesterday. I'm probably at 80% or so. Tuesday I had a sore throat, but that went away. I'm just blowing my nose a lot today, I'm thinking whatever I have is trying to make its way out. It is harder for me to kick little colds since I am on a medication that suppress my immune system. People I work with look at me weird because I am constantly using hand sanitizer or trying to keep clean.

    Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy. ~Dale Carnegie

    Pull Hypertrophy

    Hammerstrength Pull Down (rep range 8-12, rest 60-90 seconds)

    150x11,10,10

    Smith Barbell Row (rep range 8-12, rest 60-90 seconds)

    70x9,8,9

    Weight only includes the total of the plates, no bar. First time doing these. I really liked them and will be keeping them. I can really focus on squeezing the lats while keeping my back very flat.

    Wide Grip Neutral Grip Pulldown (rep range 8-12, rest 60-90 seconds)

    105x10,10,8

    Meadows Row (rep range 8-12, rest 60-90 seconds)

    35x11,10,9

    Love these

    Hammerstrength High Row (rep range 8-12, rest 60-90 seconds)

    60x9,9,8

    Done one arm at a time

    Close Grip Neutral Cable Row (rep range 8-12, rest 60-90 seconds)

    100x9,8,8

    No momentum, back was straight and body remained in the same place at all times.

    Front Barbell Shrugs (rep range 8-12, rest 45 seconds)

    225x11,10,10

    Pause at the top

    Barbell Curls (rep range 8-12, rest 45 seconds)

    50x11,9,8

    Incline Curls (rep range 8-12, rest 45 seconds)

    17.5x9,8,8

    Standing Hammer Curls (rep range 8-12, rest 45 seconds)

    25x9,9,8

    Good session today, especially for not feeling 100%. I was actually surprised how smoothly things went.

    I think it is still a little too soon to say anything. But I was surprised how smoothly today's training session went, so maybe it is hitting me already. Hunger is up a little too.

    Stop being who you were and become who you are. ~Paulo Coelho

    Push Hypertrophy

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

    65x10,9,7 +2 rest pause

    I knew I should have stopped at 8 on the second set, but I failed to listen to myself. Instead of using **** form, I decided to do a rest pause to hit my goal.

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

    60x8,8,8

    Whenever I go up in weight, I stick to 8 reps, unless I can get more the last set. I got a small spot from a buddy on the eighth rep.

    Decline Machine Press (rep range 8-12, rest 60-90 seconds)

    45x9,8,8

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

    100x9,9,9

    Slow and controlled

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

    45x8,8,8,8

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

    80x10,9,8,8

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

    100x12
    115x8,8,8

    Meant to start at 115

    Incline Skull Crushers (rep range 8-12, rest 45 seconds)

    50x9,9,9

    Single Arm Neutral Grip Cable Pressdowns (rep range 8-12, rest 45 seconds)

    9x9,8,8

    Reverse Grip EZ Bar Pressdowns (rep range 8-12, rest 45 seconds)

    27.5x11,10,10

    Feel a little better today. Hunger is up and I have a better sense of well being.

    Weekly weight - 150.4 lbs.

    Up .2 pounds this week. I am going to keep macros the same. No increase in calories this week. I must say that libido is up. Also, my quads aren't as sore as they were the first two times I did this quad dominant day, but I cut out four sets, switched my high carb day for it, and also my body might be getting used to just hitting quads.

    Better than normal. But nothing compared to other products I have used in the past. I do feel refreshed waking up and feel like I don't need as much sleep.

    You may never know what results come from your action. But if you do nothing, there will be no result. ~Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi

    Upper Power

    Military Press (rep range 3-5, rest 3-5 minutes)

    135x4,4,4

    Bar goes all the way down to the collarbone. No leg drive. I should note this. I wear a belt while going lower rep on these. I had to drill a new hole in my belt a while ago, I drilled two just to be safe. I have been on the second to last one for a while. I went to tighten my belt today and was in between two holes, close to the further one though. I inhaled a little more. Felt my belt and there were no holes remaining. I was on the last one. Pretty cool; slight weight gain and strength increases from last week while going to the last hole. Up one rep from last week.

    Incline Bench (rep range 6-8, rest 2-3 minutes)

    155x6,6,7

    Touch my chest, not bounce. Up on rep from last week.

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

    BW+65x6,6,6

    10 pounds heavier than last week. Had to grind that sixth one out on the third set!

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

    50x7,7,6

    Very slow and controlled reps. Up two total reps.

    Weighted Pullup (rep range 3-5, rest 3-5 minutes)

    BW+35x3,3,3

    Each rep from a dead hang, no momentum. Really felt these today. 5 pounds heavier.

    Hammerstength Machine Rows (rep range 6-8, rest 2-3 minutes)

    250x6,6,6

    I do these standing and one arm at a time, neutral grip. I brace myself against the chest pad with the free arm and have a slow negative. Up 20 pounds.

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

    140x7,7,6

    Two more total reps

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

    295x7,6,6

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

    60x8,7,7

    Squeeze at the top. Up four total reps.

    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.

    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.

    Many do with opportunities as children do at the seashore; they fill their little hands with sand, and then let the grains fall through, one by one. ~Thomas Jones

    45x9,9,9

    Up two reps

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

    100x9,9,10

    Slow and controlled. Up one rep

Felt so good this morning that I am getting ahead with my homework. Also, I'm a little sad right now. I just finished off my cookie crisp cereal post workout
