that picture makes it look way more drinkable than it does in person. the stuff is dirt cheap for a pre with pump and focus ingreds
following along ant nice log

Thanks buddy. That was my very last sentence in the overall section of my review. I think the sunlight helped make it look drinkable, but even in that picture it doesn't look all that appealing!

Push Power


Very tough training session today, but I'm happy with the results. I'm beat though. I could take a nap now, but I don't want to ruin my sleep for tonight. I don't even want to make my final meal tonight.

Training

Flat Bench 3-5 min rest

175x2,2,2,2,2,2,23*

This week calls for 8x2 with the last set being AMRAP. I had a really good spotter for my final set. That was the only set I asked someone. I didn't get a lift off. I got the second rep and said why not to a third. I got stuck about half way up, he had his fingers there, but didn't even touch the bar. Somehow, I got it up. It was honestly the slowest rep ever. That was complete failure.

Military Press 2-3 rest

100x5,5,5,5,5*

This week calls for 5 sets of 5 with the last set being AMRAP.I tried for a 6th rep, but stopped pressing it. I didn't want to arch my back and hurt myself.

Incline DB Press 60 - 90 sec rest

50x8,7
55x6

Seated Smith Behind the Neck Shoulder Press 60 - 90 sec rest

65x6,6,6

Dips 60-90 sec rest

35x8,6,6

Straight Bar Cable Pressdown 60 - 90 sec rest

47.5x8,6,6

Calf update - Calf is feeling slightly better day by day. Still has that isolated tight feeling, but other than that, not too much discomfort. Also, pain at night has subsided. So I think I am not going to take any muscle relaxers tonight, just Tylenol and see if I am pain free.

AntM Reviews iForce Max Out



Mixability - Perfect, no complaints here. 10/10

Profile - PEA and Caffeine makes this one for people that enjoy stims and/or a laser like focus. It also contains GMS and Potassium Nitrate to help deliver nice pumps..8/10

Energy - Good. More than your normal pre workout, but not the strongest I have tried. However, this was a single scoop. With that said, it delivered pretty well considering it was just a single scoop I used.8/10

Pump - Very good, almost painful. Vascularity was good as well. 10/10

Focus - Pretty good. Nothing laser like, but noticeable. 8/10

Taste - I was excited because iForce always delivers with the flavors. HemaVol is amazing when it comes to the flavors. I was disappointed with the taste of this. It was a lot ore sour than any other of the lemon drop flavors I have tried from iForce. One or two of the ingredients probably throws off the flavoring. If you enjoy sourness, you'd like it. However, I hate sourness! 7/10

Overall - Remember, this is all based on one scoop. I personally think most user would be happy with Max Out at a single scoop. I was. However, if I was really dragging pre training, I would need 1.5 scoops which I think would be plenty for me. The profile is good, minus the prop blend, which I am not a fan of. The focus was good along with the energy. I was disappointed with the flavor knowing how well iForce usually flvors products. All in all, if you are looking for a higher stim product, Max Out is a good option. Oh yea, and do not get turned off by the color of the powder and the liquid. The powder has a brown, almost light dirt like color to it. Once mixed, the water is also slightly brown. I think mine looked yellow due to taking the picture outside. 8/10
Ant I agree with you on the Iforce Max Out. It is pretty good. I have a container of it. I have other pre workouts that I am trying now but I plan on going back to the Max Out soon. One heaping scoop hits the spot good for me.
As far as the Furious, if you have more samples left and enough to try two sample packs I highly suggest you give it a shot. You seem to have a high stimulant tolerance like me and I think you would like two scoops of Furious. I have a review up for it.
Anyways, great work in the gym. It looks like your strength is going up.

You're right I do naturally have a high tolerance to stims. It sucks. The Max Out would have been perfect at 1.5 scoops for me. I do have another packet of Furious left. I was going to give it a go tomorrow. There are two reasons why I like to try a single scoop since that is what most people will end up using and two, if I do not have two of the same flavor, I do not want to mix them for review purposes.

AntM Reviews ALLMAX MusclePrime



Mixability - Perfect, no complaints here. 10/10

Profile - It is literally the kitchen sink. Honestly, it is one of those instances where more does not mean better. If you want to look it up, do so, but put your reading glasses on. I think they were aiming for  well rounded product, but it did not shine in any particular area..7/10

Energy - Honestly, almost next to nothing. A slight boost in overall energy, but barely noticeable..6/10

Pump - Nothing out of the ordinary. 6/10

Focus - I sound like a broken record, but nothing out of the ordinary. 6/10

Taste - I had the Fruit Berry Punch flavor. It was very good. It wasn't quite a fruit punch, but not a full berry flavor either. It had nice tones of both flavors that were represented well One did not overpower the other. It was a tad on the sweet side in 8 ounces of water, but not overly sweet. 9/10

Overall - The only thing this pre workout has going for it is its flavor or at least the flavor I had. When you look at the profile, you mind will be blown at how much stuff is in it. In terms of effectives, I would say it was mediocre at best. I think ALLMAX tried to make a truly all in one pre workout. However, they should have just focused on making it a stim heavy product or a pumped based product. I applaud their attempt, but it did not work out too well. 6/10

Pull Hypertrophy


Had a crazy pump going today. I cannot wait for tomorrow's training session. Heavy doubles for squats. That will be the last heavy day before my deload week. After the deload week, I am going for one rep maxes on my heavy days. Good news, I only paid $2.15 a dozen for eggs today. Beats the hellish price they were before.

107.5x10,10,11*

This week calls for 3x10 with the last set being AMRAP.

T Bar Row 60 - 90 sec rest

AntM Reviews ALLMAX Razor 8



Mixability - It is hard to tell in the photo, but there was a lot of foam at the top. More than your average product. No clumps though.8/10

Profile - This is supposed to be a high stim product with some pump ingrdients in it. Some of the ingredients are dosed well, while others are under dosed. Even if one took two servings, some ingredients would be under dosed while others would be over dosed. All in all though, not a bad formula..8/10

Energy - Pretty good. Nothing mind blowing, but good.8/10

Pump - I had a tremendous pump going on. More than usual and my pre workout nutrition wasn't any different. 10/10

Focus - Very solid. I was focused throughout my entire work. It wasn't like tunnel vision, but my focus was vastly improved. 9/10

Taste - I had the Watermelon flavor. Honestly, it was pretty bad. Very artificial. There was no hint of watermelon. Just a very processed and artificial tasting fruit flavor. 6/10

Overall - Pretty good pump, but some of the ingredients are under dosed while others are dosed where they should be. It is marketed as a higher stim product, which I would argue. However, the focus and pump were on point. This product does help "swell the cell" like it claims. The flavors, at least the Watermelon, needs to be looked at again. It was easily one of the worst tasting watermelon products I have ever had. And watermelon is very easy to flavor. 7/10

Lower Power


So I did not take any muscle relaxers before bed last night. I woke up around 4:30 and had a little discomfort in my ankle, I was up til around 5:30, then fell back asleep for another hour and a half.

Went to the gym this morning and it was heavy leg day. I felt very strong warming up. The squats called for 8x2 with AMRAP last set just like all of the heavy days this week. Last week, I wrote I would do 230 for my working sets, I was thinking I was going to do 235. My warm ups felt great so I put 245 on the bar after doing 205 for a single.

All of the sets went great. The walk out felt a lot better than last week and I was strong out of the hole. I think it was a combination of my calf being more stable and squatting the week before. Last week, I had not squatted for 1.5 weeks. Whenever I take a week off, I am always shaky coming back, which is why I prefer deloads to actual time off.

On the last set, I got my first rep easily, on the second, it was a little tougher. I think on the lockout, I straightened my leg too much, I felt a little twinge in my calf. I decided to do another rep and felt the twinge again.

I was able to complete my entire workout. I can walk fine and have the same felxibility as yesterday, The area that I hurt 16 days ago just feels tighter than it has the past week and is a little more tender to touch. I may have tweaked it a little. I'm waiting a few hours to see if I can walk on it. When I hurt it initially, it took a few hours before I noticed I couldn't walk. I think I just overworked it today.


Training

Back Squat 3-5 min rest

245x2,2,2,2,2,2,2,3*

This week calls for 8x2 with the last set being AMRAP.

Roman Deadlift 60 sec rest

185*

This week calls for 5 sets of 5 with the last set being AMRAP. I went a lot lighter this week because instead of pausing and resting the weight at the bottom of the movement, I kept constant tension.

Leg Extensions 60 sec rest

150x8,8,7,7,7

Lying Leg Curl 60 sec rest

65x8,7,7

I did lying this week instead of seated, I just kept my form very strict and went lighter so I wouldn't contract my calves.

Good Girls 45 - 60 sec rest

160x8,8,8
165x6,6

Bad Girls 45 - 60 sec rest

155x7,7,6,6,6

AntM Reviews BPI 1 MR Vortex



Mixability - A little foaming, some of it did not go away. 9/10

Profile - It is GMS, caffeine, yohimbine and some other stuff. Nice and simple. It is a prop blend, so it is unknown the doses of each ingredient..8/10

Energy - Very good. I had the whole packet, which is two scoops. It was clean with no crash. My past experience with yohimbine has been a rapid heart rate, shakiness, and anxiety. I did not suffer that and I took it on an empty stomach in a fasted state.10/10

Pump - Nothing out of the ordinary, but it was a lower rep day and I reaggervated an injury so I could not focus on that. 7/10

Focus - Before I reaggervated my injury, focus was on point. Not tunnel vision like, but close. 9/10

Taste - I had the Snow Cone flavor. I had it in just over 8 ounces of water. It was very sweet, this could be resolved with more water. The taste was on point though. The sweetness did not remind me of a snow cone. At least the snow cones I have had have never been that sweet. It reminded more of a firecracker Popsicle, at least I think that is what they're called. It was tasting, no complaints, except for the sweetness.9/10

Overall - Awesome tasting pre workout with nice clean energy and solid focus. Pumps could have been better, but I did use lower reps today. I would caution people that do not respond to yohimbine though. Due to the prop blend, we do not know how much is in a single scoop. It can be guesstimated by looking at the label, but still, tread carefully. 9/10

I really like 1mr, for flavor and agree with the lack of pump. Otherwise it was great when I tried it!
There was something different about her..something special. And he couldn't quite place it...but it was in the way she moved...and what she did..

Flavor was way too sweet! But good. I have another sample I can't wait to crack open!

Just got home from a long day, I will post the workout later, but here is an update on my injury. I had a small bruise on my calf this morning. As the day went on, I gained more flexibility and range or motion. It is not nearly as sore as it was yesterday. When I took a shower after the gym, I noticed I have a new bruise, but it is hard to see how big it is under the tape I have on my calf. It's weird that there is a new bruise, but it feels better than this morning. Maybe because I have been on my feet all day up to this point. I had to work this morning and was standing/walking on concrete all day, went to the gym to train, and then had to come home to meal prep. I also ordered a tall walking boot to help with recovery. I was reading that these help with recovery from calf strains.

Also, I think I solved the mystery to my ankle pain. I noticed a bruise on the outside bottom portion of my foot. I think it is from the calf sleeve I have been wearing. Right where the bruise is is where I get the pain at night. I am going to discontinue using it and see how it gets.

I hope you feel better soon bro.

Thanks. It will probably take 6-8 weeks to fully heal. I just hope I don't keep having setbacks when training legs.
