  1. Off the Richter Scale with Seismic Surge by Hard Rock Supplements. (Sponsored)


    As soon as I saw the Post I needed to put my app in to try a new Pre-Workout for high tolerance to stim junkies such as myself. I know of Hard Rock Supplements being potent and effective, but this is my first go at their products!

    Here we go with Seismic Surge!

    Key Benefits of Seismic Surge:
    Helps Surge Energy*
    Helps Increase Muscle Pumps*
    Helps Enhance Muscle Endurance*
    Promotes an Elevated Positive Mood*
    Helps Increase Concentration & Focus*
    Helps Boost Metabolism*
    Helps Increase Workout Strength*
    Helps Accelerate Muscle Recovery*
    No Creatine, No DMAA

    Thanks to @LeanEngineer and HRS for this fantastic opportunity to try a new product and another thanks for the Bonus goodies seen here:


    The tank will be a goal. I am a solid medium so the large will be future goals!

    A quick look at the label:



    So at first glance we see 2 prop blends..
    Endurance, Vascularity, & Pumps Blend:
    &
    Energy & Focus Blend:

    As long as the effects are desirable than I don't worry a ton about blends. I know some people refuse to use products with blends, but I think Hard Rock delivers the goods. For an unknown company to enter into the market with blends may be risky, but for an established company, I have no worries at all.

    I have had experience with some of the ingredients in this product but not all so I am certainly looking forward to see how they work. The main Stim in this product appears to be 2 Amino-isoheptane aka.DMHA which seems to be a replacement for DMAA and/or AMP Citrate. I have only tried DMAA once, and I ran a full tub of a product containing AMP Citrate. The AMP Citrate gave me insane workouts so I am sure this will too.

    Ingredients:

    2 Amino-isoheptane: One of the newest and most exciting stimulants to hit the market in a while, this ingredient boosts dopamine and noradrenaline uptake causing it to act as a potent focus, energy and mood enhancer.

    Halostachine: This ingredient works similar to ephedrine in burning fat as it stimulates the beta receptors found in fat cells which cause fat to be released to be burned as energy.

    Octopamine: A metabolite of Synephrine, this compound helps to increase energy and promote wakefulness. Additionally, it supports fat loss while helping to minimize the loss of lean muscle mass.

    Theobromine: From the cocoa plant this ingredient helps to produce the “feel-good” sensation you experience while eating chocolate. This helps smooth out the feelings one gets when taking high dosages of caffeine and stimulants.

    Beta Alanine: A non-essential amino acid that helps to raise muscle carnosine concentrations which in turn helps to reduce muscle fatigue increasing the amount of work one can perform at high intensities.

    L-Arginine Alphaketoglutarate: A vasodilator that increases nitric oxide levels to improve nutrient delivery to muscles and boost athletic performance.

    Agmatine Sulfate: A byproduct of Arginine, Agmatine is produced through a process called decarboxylation. This compound has gained much exposure in the supplement industry due to its ability to release growth hormone and its production of Nitric Oxide (muscle pumps).

    Caffeine Anhydrous: As the body metabolizes caffeine it increases lipolysis, the breakdown of fat, which decreases fat stored all over the body. Caffeine also helps with suppressing appetite, therefore, lowering the number of calories you intake daily. Caffeine acts as a mild diuretic, preventing water retention and ultimately leading to some weight loss by reduction of fluid retention. This ingredient is added to enhance mental alertness and focus. Caffeine works by stimulating the central nervous system, heart, and muscles.

    Synephrine hcl: This compound is found in a variety of plants. Synephrine hcl activates beta-3 receptors. Which sends the body into a thermogenic state. Over time this thermogenic state will aid in fat loss.

    N*-Methyl Tyramine: Derived from the amino acid Tyrosine, this ingredient helps to increase energy through gluconeogenesis as well it can help increase cAMP which increases the release of adrenaline.

    Alpha Yohimbine: This ingredient is an alpha-2 adrenergic receptor antagonist that promotes the improved lipolysis. It increases the blood flow throughout the body and is also known to help decrease fat synthesis by increasing fatty acid mobilization.

    Expectations I hope to get a big surge of energy that helps me get into the zone. After 8 hours of work, I am usually tired and ready to go to sleep. Pre_Workouts are critical for getting in a better workout. Seismic Surge should elevate my workouts to the next level.

    Stats

  8. subbed
    GOD, FAMILY, COUNTRY!!!

  9. Gainz were made tonight!! I have some video I may post.. I am not good at it though. So weird talking to a camera...

    Initial thoughts.
    Mix= Excellent! No grit or clumps.
    Taste = great, not too sweet or overbearing. Fruit punch is accurate. No bite.
    Energy: good. I didn't feel a rush of energy like I needed to jump around. But I was fully awake and focused on the task. Sorta like tunnel vision.
    Endurance and strength= amazing!! After flat bench, incline bench, and incline db press I was able to do 14 reps, 20 reps and 14 reps of chest dips!! I am usually smoked by this movement!

    Initial overall is blown away!!!

    I know something amazing was happening when I was able to put up 93% of my 1rm on bench! All 4 sets for all 3 reps!!

    Thank you for sticking with an actual blender bottle! I don't like these shaker cups that have the plastic thing at the top, it NEVER gets blended as well as a shaker with the blender ball in it.

    I think I might have to bump up my lifting day from Thursday to tomorrow so I can hit this pre on some lifts instead of just cardio.

    Sounds like you had a blast!

  12. Yeah. Chest will be sore I know it.

    Forgot to mention pumps.
    Pumps= ok. Not super pumped, but it is there.

  17. Well the good news is I slept great last night! I was tired as hell.

    When I left work I wanted to go to bed. I though there was no way I would be able to perform at the gym only running on 4 hours of sleep.
    Luckily Seismic Surge helped out a bit.

    Started back day with pull ups. I grabbed the grips and thought "this is going to suck" I felt weak and was very worried. After 3 sets I started getting warmed up and feeling better. By the end of the 4th set SS was kicking in! I would have to say, thie PWO does take a little longer to kick in. It takes a good 20mins+ to feel it!

    The workout went ok. I did get a good amount of volume in. I did, Pullups 6 sets of 6-8reps, close grip seated cable rows 3 sets of 8, close grip pulldown 3 sets, bent over BB rows 3 sets, Bent over DB rows 3 sets, Then BB bicep curls + 20 second slow release chin up for 3 sets. Then incline bench DB curls.

    Considering how tired I was, this was a good workout.

  19. That's when a pre is optimal in my opinion. When you're tired and you need that extra boost to get you through your workout. Glad Seismic Surge helped!

    For sure!

    Yesterday was leg day. I didn't get to the gym until 6 so I didn't want to be up all night so I passed on the Seismic Surge. Today is a rest day and then tomorrow is going to be a BIG day! Chest 1 rep max day!

  22. Was good having a day off because today was a big day!! One rep max test day for chest, I believe seismic surge help me get to a new PR. I wanted to get to 215 really bad today since 210 was my last PR. Did 8 reps of 135 felt really like 165 for 2 reps felt pretty good then 195 felt a little bit heavy and I started getting worried. Loaded up to 15 want for it and couldn't get past the sticking point.. second attempt was pretty much the same. And then it happened I got psyched up and went Full Tilt and got 215 for one rep!!! Little bit ugly but got it!! And then another amazing thing happened I was able to do 85 lb dumbbells on the incline press also 185 on the incline barbell. Thinking I didn't have anything left I was wrong as I was able to get 90s for 4 reps!!! These are all new personal records all around.
    Again the energy was nothing crazy over the top, just smooth and focused at no point did I think that I needed to be careful and bail out of a rep. I just wanted to keep going and going. Finished it off with tricep rope extensions and I never felt such a painful pump in my life it was great!!

  25. I got a bonus workout in yesterday! Shoulders! And it was another good one!

    I ate 3 medium pancakes and an egg for breakfast at 9am.
    This is important info as when i took Seismic at 11:20am, it seemed to hit me harder than usual! I was flushed a bit in the face and felt energized! A bit more intense than usual!

    I was able to get 65lb DB seated overhead press for 6 good reps without assistance getting them up!
    I felt strong So i went for 75lbs and needed a little help getting started, but I got a good rep in. Never tried that much so I was ok with 1 good rep. I went for 70lbs and got 4 decent reps!

    Overall I am able to crank out more volume than usual. I have been starting to watch old bodybuilding movies which are giving me ideas about increasing my volume. I watched Pumping iron and Stand Tall so far. pretty neat stuff!!

    So I will be starting to super set movements.

    I supersetted Lateral raises and upright DB rows and felt great!

    Energy is great! Endurance is awesome! Pump is good, Still enjoying the flavor very much so!
