    Hello everyone and welcome to my log..

    Thanks a million to Performax and @R1balla for this chance to try their intra-workout product Powermax XT

    Loaded up with all these goodies here:
    [/url]
    [/url]

    The combination of Aminos, Creatine and hydration should provide a nice combo for great workouts.

    Stats
    03 yr old male, 171lbs @~13%bf. I workout 3-4 days week after work around 5pm

    Pretty common split such as:
    Mon: Back/bis
    Tues:Chest Tris
    Wednesday Rest
    Thursday shoulders
    Friday Rest
    Saturday Legs
    Pretty simple scheme usually at 4 sets, 8-12reps @ 70-80% of 1 rep max.

    Expectations

    I am hoping too see increased strength, quicker recovery between sets and more endurance.

    First Impression

    The flavor is Orange Dream which is something I probably would not seek out to purchase. Like many people I avoid orange, green and yellow lol. That being said the aroma is strong and delicious! I tried a little dip with my finger and I was pleasantly surprised. Strong and accurate. Although I don't think I pickup much of the "dream" which I assume would be cream like in a creamsicle.

    I listened to a few other loggers and went with the swirl method instead of shaking it. It does foam up pretty good making it tough to get the good stuff into your belly. After swirling it seemed to mix ok. Some settled mix in the bottom so I swirled more intensely, this worked.
    I actually really like the flavor alot!

    I killed the workout but can't say I noticed too much yet. More info to come in the future.

    Today and tomorrow are rest days dues to running the Tough Mudder on saturday!! I don't want to be sore or in a weakened state! I am thinking about taking a scoop pre- tough mudder but not sure if I will reap any benefits.

    Maybe an expert can chime in on that???

    Thanks for reading!!

    I honestly do not understand what the issue is though. I mean, I get it... but to me, it isn't a big deal. I use aminos that foam up also. I just drink it half way, fill it back up (intra workout) and keep drinking lol doesn't bother me.

    Not A huge problem. But it does make it more difficult to drink and get all the product into the mix. I wonder if I got a container that only holds say 24 oz and put 21oz in it, technically there wouldn't be much room for foam.. I wonder if it would build up pressure?

    Yeah that's what i'm doing it. at first i was kind of scared that it would blow the lid off the shaker, aka BSN no explore 2 and 3, but like you said, in a smaller shaker there's no room for foam. once the initial foam disappears, you can shake it again to make sure nothing stays in the bottom of your cup

  6. The key is how you mix it. Don't shake it up and down, and don't do anything fast. Sort of swirl the bottle with the powder and liquid in it, think imitating the motion mixing it with a spoon would do. Then maybe just tilt it back and forth. It actually mixes very easily and completely in my experience, so there's no need to go crazy shaking it. I just mixed 1 scoop in a 32oz Gatorade bottle with 20oz water, and using the above method, foam was minimal, and the mix was complete and thorough. The foam was not that much, and went away/down after a few minutes. I have some pics and a video if anyone needs help visualizing it.

  7. No major updates. I decided not use powermax as pre-workout for tough mudder. The race was fun as hell except for both calves cramped around mile 8. Terrible pain. Hurting like hell today.

    Ah! Hate cramps! I've tried it pre workout and I prefer it as intra.

  9. Yeah, still hurts to the touch and still walking around flat footed trying not flex the foot.

    Yesterdays workout was pretty sweet though. I have a small 16 oz shaker that use now. Nice and easy, just fill it 98% with water and foam is a minimal issue!

    Chest day of course. This was a ultimate chest builder exercise I found, Second week trying it.

    BB Flat Bench, 4 sets @ 5-8reps @ 80%, last set hit 160lbs for 6 reps, new best,
    DB Incline press, 4 sets @ 8-12reps, Hit 60's for 10 , best by 5lbs
    BB Incline press, 4 sets 6-10 reps, failed at 115lb @ 3 reps the last set, feeling smoked at this point
    Dips, (chest version) Got 1 rep... I can't believe how used I felt. Massive failure. Couldn't even do a pushup!!
    DB Flat Bench, 4 sets @ 10-12 reps LOL!, I tried 42.5lbs and got 4, tried 40lbs and got 6, rested for over 3 minutes and hit 8, then gave it everything I had with a little bit of momentum and got 11 the last set. ABSOLUTELY DEAD!

    Even though this is the second week on this scheme, it seems to be effective as the skin around the chest is tighter.

    Powermax kept me mentally in the game, and seemed to help push through.

    Absolutely loving the flavor!

    Nice work man. Glad you are enjoying it. I was skeptical of the orange flavor as well. Easy to mess up. But I really enjoy it. I tried it in a berry flavored Ozarka water and the flavor mixes perfectly.

  11. Thanks.

    Last night was a good one too! I am sore AF today. Woke up with crazy tightness in chest, had to stretch to get rid of it.

    Back Night
    4 Set 8reps pullups. Got 8,8,8, 6 Last wek only got 8,8,6,6
    4 Set 10rep One arm DB row, worked to 70lbs for 8!
    4 set 8 rep incline bench DB row, worked to 60lbs
    4 Set 8rep T Bar row, worked with 90lbs, only got 5 last set
    3 sets of austrian pull ups, 6reps
    2 sets empty barbell curls
    3 sets of outside/inside grip preacher curls with 30lbs of plates, did 8/6, 8/6, 6/3
    2 sets incline bench DB curls, with 22.5lb failed at 5, then 20lbs for 7reps
    High cable curls @ 12kg i believe. 2 sets of 6

    Absolutely smoked!

    Right arm is a little achy today around the elbow.. Feeling good.

    At no point during the workout did I feel beat, I could just keep going, rest sets were used, but didn't feel the need most of time. Good stuff!

    I filled up my 16oz shaker, drank about 6oz, added 6oz and kept drinking. The flavor is strong enough that it still tasted great!

    Also, It has been a while since I weighed in. Seems a big increase in weight and some fat lol.
    177lbs @ 15.5%bf according to my Omron fat analyzer.

  14. Looks like we all hit legs this weekend. Major soreness today.

    Yep!

    Hammies are still a little sore today.


    I have to say yesterday was one of the best lifting sessions I have had in a long time! Absolutely went ham.

    This week I wanted to down the reps but up the weight. Then next week up the reps with the same increased weight.

    As we saw. 160 for 6 reps was my best, and 185 was my 1 rep max. This has been beaten sorta

    Flat BB Bench, 4 sets @ 90% or 1rm 3-5 reps. When I warmed up with 135, it was the lightest 135 I ever felt. So I went for 100% of my 1rm which is 185lbs, not only got 1 rep, but I got all 3! I was able to repeat for all 4 sets! I was freaking out!!
    Incline DB Press, I was feeling frosty so tried 75lbs, only got 2. Stepped down to 70 got 5, then 65 for 6. Still awesome!
    Incline BB, I thought I would be smoked, but no, the awesomeness continued. Smashed last weeks weight at 135lbs and got 6 reps all 4 SETS!!!
    Dips (Chest Version)This is where I felt super human!!, Last week I was able to get 1 ugly rep, Completely different yesterday. I not only got 8 reps the first set, I was able to get 10 the second, 8 the 3rd and 6 the last set!!! ( I assume since the reps were lower in all the presses, i was able to perform longer)
    Last, but not least:
    Flat DB Press, Last week was funny for failing at 42.5lbs, I didnt know what to expect after everything. but Again I impressed myself with 4 sets of 8 reps at 55lbs!! UNREAL

    AS we can see I was able to move higher weight for slightly less reps. I have never been able to bench 185 for more than 2 and certainly not for multiple sets.

    I love drinking Powermax every other set.

    At no point did I feel weakened , or doubting myself. This was a breakthrough workout for me.

    Good question.

    I expected to be sore as hell today seeing as how last weeks chest workout resulted in me waking up with a painful tight chest.
    I have to say this week is nowhere near as bad! I am hardly sore to the touch. I will know a little later today for sure, but as of now its reduced.

  20. PR for days!!
    Performax Labs Product Specialist


  21. Pretty awesome Back day yesterday

    Pullups, Felt weak at first. Shoulders and chest were feeling sore from the day before.
    Still managed, 8, 9, 8, 6
    Rev Grip Pulldown, 4 sets of 12R @ 60kg Not my best
    Single Arm DB Row, Worked up to 75lbs for 8R!! New high
    Bent Over Rev Grip BB Row, 3 sets worked to 125lbs New High!
    T Bar row, 4 sets worked to 100lbs for 8! New high again! Feeling really good about the workout now!
    Preacher curls, Got 3 sets worked to 67lbs with strict form
    Single arm preacher DB curls, worked negatives, not sure on rep count but worked until I couldn't control the DB during the eccentric movement.
    Hammer curls, only 20lbs needed to smoke me at 7 reps.
    Not too sore at all today.

    Debating on a rest day or shoulder day.

  22. Saturday was a sweet day! We went for 1rm day on bench. I am up to 195lbs! It went up fairly well. I felt like I could get 205 and tried. I was wrong! Could barely move it. That will be a big day for me to get over 200lbs! I think We will go 4-6 weeks before testing again.

    I continued to put in a decent chest exercise with keeping reps low and weights a little higher.

    Powemax continues to let me work hard without feeling the need to take long rest periods. I can get more done in less time and still have good power output.
