After a couple of weeks - maybe three, on- I just hit 405 on my Deadlift - raw.
Now - I'm 50, and used to deadlift around 550 and, as "Coach Rippetoe" would say - I'm a "****ty deadlifter" because of my body type. I am all Meso and very tall - long torso, long legs - just excessively long levers for the deadlift movement. I also have two herniated disks in my neck, and the Doc's say my scoliosis (curvature of the back) is now pretty severe.
But I'm up to 405 now on the deadlift and I think I can move up more.
Aside from protein, creatine, and some carnitines - all I'm taking right now is Intimidate.

heres probably my last post and it's a complete review...
first week: sleep was rough the first couple of days, either for a mindset that it should have worked instantly or just my body getting use to it. recovery was almost instant for me personally....
second week: sleep had finally become deep and relaxing! recovery was staying constant since first week! vascularity was starting to come around and focus was pretty amazing as well.....
week three: sleep is constantly deep by this time. recovery is still solid! vascularity was starting to become very noticing even when I was not flexing lol! week three muscle hardness really started to kick in and I just felt strong ya know!
week four: the final week was sad for me...knowing it was the end of the road...sleep was amazing the entire time and so was recovery! my veins are thick and I look solid by this time!
honestly intimidate was amazing for me...it did everything to a t that it said it would do! overall I give it a 9/10 rating!
my max before and after ate below...
power clean: 245......300
hang clean: 235........315
incline bench: 225......265
shoulder press: 155.......185
if the above results don't do it for ya then you just don't want to get strong!!
big thanks to those who followed this thread all the way through and to those who have advice!!

I'm on week three but I will continue for a total of eight weeks - at least and may extend to 12 to see how that goes.
You can search my previous posts - I don't really have a lot of favorable reviews and, the ones I do - are for different companies. I don't get any freebies and would never take them if offered. I don't know any reps either - and have never received a PM from a single one.
Let me tell you though - this stuff is scaring me.
It's turning me into a gorilla combined with my basic barbell training. I expect to get hard and big on Epi or Ultradrol. When I used DAA I was happy to get what was more of an "assist" which produced gains over a much longer term. I did not expect to get almost AAS type results from Intimidate. And the cool thing is - I only "pulse" Epi and UD because, something about them makes me feel kind of "sick" at the core of my immune system. Hard to describe - I passed a gallstone in 2003 and it shot my liver enzymes through the roof and I felt like I was dying - something about being on steroids reminds me of that.
I don't get that feeling on Intimidate at all. I get bigger, and stronger - and I have to think there is a downside here, and that's scary to me but if there is - I don't know what it is.
Can I say it's better than steroids? No. I can tell you it's better than Ostarine though - that's for damn sure (and I love Ostarine).
Once I go "off" Intimidate - how long should I wait before going back on?
I was doubtful - but this is serious good **** - it's transforming.

^^^ doesn't get much better than that. I absolutely love seeing all these non-sponsored reviews saying the EXACT same thing. Looks like most of the "haters" have died down as of late...way to many ridiculous reviews at this point. SXI is up 8.2lbs in 33 days, 2 people claim its > Ultradrol, and all the other logs show significant strength/size gains coupled with a serious fat loss/recomp effect.
We suggest 60 day cycles with 4 weeks off before you begin again. A few people have decided to run it for 90 days. I'm curious to see if their results continue, or when they begin to level out.

Man when I read all ur posts from ur cycle I was a little skeptical to how good of luck you were having and hoping u weren't doing a muscle tech claim. But I did chest today and my 3 rep max became by 10 rep max. In a matter of a week. Maybe it's cuz I'm stacking intimidate with c20, anabeta, and erase pro, or maybe it's cuz I took erase pro and lifted? Who knows but kuddos to you sir... KuddosOriginally Posted by the gym rat

Question: is INTIMIDATE by IFORCE NUTRITION on the banned list or contain any ingredients that are on the banned list??
04-18-2012, 12:21 PM
iForce Nutrition is fully cGMP compliant. As I stated, Intimidate contains no impurities, and will not cause anyone to fail a drug test, 100% guaranteed.

it's not a drug test I'm worried about....it's the random roids test they do once or twice a yearOriginally Posted by VaughnTrue

I'm thinking of starting a Intimidate cycle as well but can't make up my mind to run it for 4 or 8 weeks. Any thoughts?

would anyone like to enter into a "friendly competition" with me?
being guys, we all like to take pride in our lifting abilities and the plus side is it helps us sore past our PRs and plateaus!!
I would like to offer up a simple challenge on the basis of bettering ourselves, not try an slam each other!
rules are simple...take a video of your max attempt every 4 weeks of the lifts and post them in the thread! winner gets pride but in reality, the work put into trying to beat eachother in the lifts is more rewarding!!
given I am an NCAA athlete now I have to follow my coaches lifts that he wants so the lifts are different then your average so if no one wants to then hey it was just a suggestion!!
the core lifts will be:
close grip bench (grip shoulder length apart)
if your interested leme know!!
if not then oh well lol
