Alphamax questions...

Page 4 of 5 First ... 2345 Last

  1. Thank you for the suggestions. I am taking my first dose in the morning and I eat very little, if anything with it. Sometimes I have a coffee with some cream - but most of my calories are consumed after 6. During the day I may have 300-600 calories in addition to the coffee, spaced out. Normally it will be a protein shake or protein bar while I'm at work, and most of the time probably closer to 300 calories than 600 calories. It is a very loose IF type diet. I may have another shake before I workout on training days, and then I eat a pretty large dinner and try to focus on protein intake. I may cheat a little after dinner too, but not normally. I may have to figure out how to re-arrange my bad habits to eat something with the morning dose.

    And don't get me wrong, it's not like I'm punching people or walls or anything, haha - but I'm definitely in a mood and snap a little more easily and it is really not like me. I am normally intense, but not mean haha.


  2. Less protein drinks, more meat.

  3. I heartily agree with you on that T-Bone. The reason for the bars and drinks are really just psychological/time as well as cost (I'm poor right now). I can bang down a shake for about 120 calories mixed with water and it takes little time and doesn't get me in the eating mode. Once I start eating, I don't stop. And also, being broke, $1 for 25 grams of protein is a lot cheaper than MOST other sources - but not all. I eat lots of meat at dinner though

  4. Speaking of meat - I noticed today that I don't even need to eat WITH the Alphamax I don't think - just eating in general has a big change. I took my first dose around 8 this morning and was pissed for most of the day. I had some chicken (maybe about 2-3 oz) this afternoon maybe around 1 and I was a little less edgy. I had some yogurt and a bagel (I normally try to avoid these types of carbs, but I figured what the hell) - and I feel way less pissed off.

    No wonder I was pissed. I was hungry.

  5. Just another update - I have been eating a little more over the past 2 days and the effects are noticeably diminished if I eat more food during the day. Actually, my appetite is way up today and I weighed myself this afternoon and I was actually lighter than I expected after eating quite a bit more during the day. It almost seems as if I was losing less when I was eating less.

  6. This might be a stupid question. Maybe not. Wednesday at the gym I was benching a DB weight I'm used to. At the end of the set I had a killer headache out of nowhere, which is what everyone who lifts calls an exertion headache. I'm going to the doctor today to myself checked out to make sure I didn't have a blood vessel related problems the other day (I thought my head was going to explode). I'm right at week 2 of Alphamax. I know he's goign to tell me to take it easy for a week or two and more than likely not lift anything at all. I've been hurting the past two days so I wouldn't go back anyways for a while. At least until I'm good again. Should I keep the cycle of Alphamax going or stop until I'm able to continue on with the gym?

  7. Were you planning on running for 8 weeks? You'll definitely see the most benefit from using while you're able to work out so I'd probably discontinue until you can.

    Yeah I bought two bottles so I plan on running 8 weeks. I know the doc is going to tell me to ttake it easy for probably a week or two. Hopefully just a week. I'll cut it off though while I'm resting if that's the best thing to do.

  9. I think personally you'll be better off running 6 weeks straight while working out rather than taking for a week or two not doing anything. It'll be worth the wait!

    Yeah I agree with that. I feel like I'd be wasting the stuff sitting around doing nothing.

  11. Maverick, BP headache? Had that checked? Just thought I would ask.

    Yeah I went to my primary yesterday and got it checked out. He did a bunch of stuff and told me he doesn't see any serious signs that would require an MRI or CT so that's a good sign. I pulled a muscle in my rhomboid somehow, so there's a lot of tension on that muscle. He seemed to think it was exertion, muscle pull and some nerve stimulus all at the same time. Considering I haven't had much of a headache since it happened, he said that rules out an aneurysm or any blood vessel issues. I asked about a good break or taking it easy on weights and he said "Nope. Jump back in there and be careful." Waiting for this muscle pull to heal and then I'll get back to it!

  13. I would be careful, I'm no doctor, but I only had this happen once in my life. I don't generally get headaches at all, so this was weird. I was doing military presses and as soon as I got done I stood up and the back of my head where my spine attaches just felt like it was being crushed. I walked it off and figured I held my breath and didn't realize it or something and actually finished the workout. I couldn't lift without getting the same headache for a while. I took 1 week off, came back, headache. Took 2 weeks off and then I was fine - so 3 weeks total. I think 2 weeks would have been fine if I didn't try to go back.

    I never went to the doctor and this was in October and I've had no signs since - but I think I may have been dehydrated. Make sure you are getting enough water and electrolytes. Also, keep your neck in a neutral position if possible. These are typical issues that cause exertions headaches.

    Yeah I'm the same way. I only get headaches if I'm stupid and wait too long to eat something, so they aren't the norm for me. I did the same thing though. I waited about 5 minutes and went back to my routine. I didn't press anymore the entire time I was there but I did mainly flies and all of my tricep work without anymore pain at all. The next day I was really cloudy all day and my back was killing me. I know he said go back whenever but I don't think this pulled muscle is going to let me do anything for a good while because it's not going away fast. On top of that my best friend is getting married next week so I have time for nothing but that. I guess you could call it good timing.

    My hydration has been good considering I drink about 1.5 gals a day. Electrolytes has been something I've loaded up on the past few days too just in case. I honestly think I was holding my breathe like an idiot when I got that last rep out. That's unlike me because I really focus of breathing and form while I'm in the gym. Lesson learned though. I know you had to have been on pins and needles when you went back. Did you have a problem going as heavy as you were on presses when you got back into it all? Any more pain or pressure or did time off help it heal?

  15. I'm liking Alphamax. Weirdly enough I'm experiencing the "euphoria"/mood effects more-so than any anger/aggression as some of you have reported. I'm a smaller guy (5'6" 165) so I wasn't sure how the 2-2 dosing spread out btw 5-6 hours from each other would effect me.
    I'm on Day 6 and while sleep is a recurring problem for me, I've been groggy when I first awake but then I'm good to go (mind you I'm getting at minimum 6.5 hours. Aiming for a solid 8).
    Any pointers moving forward? I'll go ahead and grab a 2nd bottle as I see most of you recommend 8 weeks. I just finished an 8week run of Paragon and had solid results. Nothing miraculous but steady increases in my lifts. And definite muscle retention on slight calorie deficit. Thanks

  16. Your plan looks good, gonna see some nice results! If you take a serving pwo you'll see some good pumps. Take with foods if you can. Let us know if any questions!

    I had no problems once I got sufficient rest. When I took the first week off, my next workout was leg day and I did my warm up set of leg extensions and was fine. Then I put on the weight for an all-out set and before I even got to failure I felt it coming back on and I was getting dizzy, so I stopped and quit the workout. After 2 more weeks off, I was ready to go and got right back into it - heavy with no problems.

    Okay cool. I appreciate the heads up. I have to let this muscle pull heal anyways before I do anything so I won't be back in there for a good two weeks probably. I needed to give my body a rest and I didn't listen to it and reaped the benefits. Oh well!

  21. Just started my Alphamax a few days ago. Damn you forsk and your GI issues! Lol.

    The toilet it always my friend for two weeks or so until my body gets used to it.

    Yea every time it gives me the runs but as you said I look at it as a cleanse lol. Takes me about 1-2 weeks to get used to it.
