Recomp & Recover on Alphamax XT

  1. Recomp & Recover on Alphamax XT


    Here we go, getting ready for a 4 week run of Alphamax XT coming from a 4 week PCT after a mild anabolic cycle on a cut. The boys feel good and everything feels like it's leveling off but we all know it usually takes more than 4 weeks to completely recover. I needed a supplement that should help boost my test, keep estrogen at bay, & cortisol under control. This is belong to deliver on all of the above, plus some, so we will see. I have used Hypermax XT by performax labs with good success so I jumped all over the opportunity to log this fitting in perfect for what I needed at the time.



    * Diet & Workout Routine are the same as during my PCT.* I wanted to change things up with my routine, but considering I'm logging this I wanted to try and give it a true run & judgement for y'all without any changes. So everything remains unchanged.

    Goals: Recomp, retain gains, regain some strength back.

    Diet: Workout days 2900 cals. P252/C288/F80.
    Off days 2200 cals. Calories I cut on off days will come from reduced carb intake.
    Every Saturday I just chill with the diet & enjoy some good food for a cheat meal or two.

    Supplements:
    Alphamax XT
    Creatine
    Hypermax XT
    Fish oil

    Stats: Age- 29
    Height- 6'0"
    Weight- 177.8lbs
    BF%- 18

    Since this is only a 4 week run I will post a picture starting & another at the end of 4 weeks

    We'll see where it goes, should be good!

  7. how did you measure your body fat?

    18% seems high for someone who lifts, just did a mild anabolic cycle, and is 6'0 and 176 pounds

    alphamax XT looks amazing though. gonna buy some in the beginning of May to run for a month or two before Summer starts.

    will be interested to see your results

    By a formula I found online taking circumference measurements. Not with calipers.

    It may not be correct. I'm going to post a starting picture tomorrow and feel free to give an opinion.

    Also, I weigh on Monday mornings just as I wake up with only my boxers & it seems to be the most consistent. I can weigh myself in the gym during the day in workout clothes and I am 182-184 (+ 6-8lbs from my morning weigh in), depending.

    Glad you joined in.

    Good deal, glad to see you in here to follow.

    I will be posting my workout routines & weight, hope that's cool with everyone.

  11. Just popped the first two caps, let's get it rolling.

  12. Today was one of those days where you can't take enough caffeine to get motivated. Worked Chest & Bi's and everything felt 20lbs heavier. I had to rack almost every chest movement on my last & heaviest set, pause, then go back at it for 1-2 reps.

    Here's how it looked though.

    Bench Press- 4x8 (185,205,215,225)
    Decline- 3x12 (185)
    Incline - 3x8 (135,155,165)
    Incline flys- 2x10 (40)
    Preacher curl- 1x12(55) 1x10(75) 1x8(85) 1x12(75)
    Incline curls DB- 3x8 (35)
    Preacher curl Machine- 2xFailure 50lbs

  13. I've tried uploading pictures, keeps saying file is to large. I've resized it, still no bueno.

  14. i usually upload pics to imgur then just use [img] tags

  15. Picture's are not the best, but going up.





  16. Great stack, in for this one... I just began XGels, and plan to overlap with XT during the last week!

    Join the party! The X Gels & Alphamax XT would probably be a awesome natty stack.

    Yup, running them both for the first time, so I want to keep them separate at first. Once I figure out which works best, I'll stack it with Anafuse.

  19. Felt great today hitting legs, one of the best days I've had in awhile as far as endurance & things just felt better & lighter. Need more of these.

    Here's my workout

    Leg Press- 200x15, 400x10, 490x10, 600x8 690x6, 400x15
    Deadlifts- 135x12, 185x10, 225x8, 275x6, 315x4
    Lunges- 2x30 (25lbs db's)
    Seated leg Curls- 45x12, 90x12, 115x10
    Leg raises- 12x10, 12x11, 12x12 squeeze & hold at top.
    Calves- 300x15x3

  20. Not sure if it's something in the Alphamax or not but the last two workouts have been more focused & intense. Going to see if this trend holds (I hope so) or if it's just coincidence. Granted it's very early to really be getting any effects or benefits from it I would think though. Either way, it's been nice to actually enjoy & want to push through the next set.

    Worked back & Tri's today. Workout looked like this.

    Wide Grip Pullup- 1x15 BW, 1x10 chains
    Reverse grip Pullup- 1x12 BW 1x10 chains
    Parallel grip- 1x12 BW 1x10 chains
    Skull Crushers/superset close grip bench- 3x12 (65)
    Standing Upright Rows- 3x12 (70,90,110)
    Tricep pushdowns cable- 3x10 (130)
    Wide grip Rows- 3x12 (100,120,140)
    DB skull Crushers- 3x12 (22.5,25,25)

    It's possible. Ashwagandha is great at at reducing stress/anxiety, and has nootropic effects, tongkat ali can reduce stress and improve mood and libido, and ferulic acid has been shown to increase post-exercise beta endorphin levels, which could lead to reduced feelings of fatigue during workouts.

    I find that Alphamax XT gives me similar focus and enjoyment. Even during my sets I feel like I desire to push myself harder for some reason. I find that with Alphamax XT, my sleeping is improved and I less stressed during the day, which translates to improved focus and intensity in the gym. Glad you're feeling strong! Log is looking awesome man

  24. Yeah it's just a calm focused feeling, no aggression. Pretty much like I have a job to do, bare down, & get it. I've been on a tongkat Ali supplement the last two weeks of PCT stacked with Clomid, so I wouldn't think it's that.
    I have over three weeks left of this, so we will see if it hold this trend or not. Workout days vary & I'll call them like they are so hang in with me.

    Shoulders & Abs today BTW

  25. Good workout today, but wasn't as up to par as the past two. I'm sure only getting 5 hrs of sleep last night didn't help any.

    Here's my workout, I won't post anymore workout logs until the end of the log and see if & where there is progress. Also the light high rep DB press is to really warm my shoulder joints up. I've just now after almost 4 months been able to do any Bench/incline or overhead movements with free weights coming from a bad shoulder injury. Best believe I religiously warm up my shoulders with bands and light weight now. Still have a little pain on certain movements, but it's improving still.

    Military DB - 3x25 (25)
    Military Machine - 4x8 ( 90,120,150,160)
    Decline Sit ups- 3x25
    Seated Side Laterals- 3x10(20lbs DB)
    Leg raises- 3x20
    Front Lat raises- 3x10 (45lbs plate)
    Standing side crunch's- 3x12 (65lbs DB)
