It’s Monday, another fresh start for a new week. And Mondays usually consist of my back workout. This morning I also threw in some hamstrings, calves, and my usual cardio.
Today’s back workout was my first time trying Total War preworkout (this is from Redcon1). I had ran out of pre workout last week so I’ve gone several workouts without anything other than aminos and a caffeine pill.
Monday Morning Back Workout
I’ll start with my Monday morning back workout. I decided to skip deadlifts and free weight barbell rows this week and give my lower back a break. I hope to come back stronger on those next week. I still got a great back workout though with Total War preworkout.

Total War Preworkout
I’m not going to give a full review just based on one workout. That will be coming in a few weeks. But I would like to give some quick highlights of Total War preworkout.
› Energy: As I train in the early mornings I NEED something to get me going. The energy from Total War preworkout didn’t give me a surge as I expected. But I did notice I had smooth, sustainable energy. My workout was also a little longer as I felt like I could keep going. Unfortunately I have other responsibilities in life and can’t stay in the gym the entire day.
› Power/Strength: This was tough to gauge since I didn’t do my core free weight back exercises, deadlifts and barbell rows. But I was able to go heavy on the plate-loaded rows (this is a Hammer Strength piece of equipment). And I was able to pump out more reps with the heavy weight than I had expected. So that’s a good thing.
› Pump Factor: There wasn’t as much of that pump that I’ve gotten from other preworkout supplements. But the pump was indeed there. Of course the true pump comes from doing more volume, so that attributed more to my muscles bulging than Total War preworkout.
One Day of Total War Preworkout
Just going by my first day of using Total War preworkout it’s not my favorite for that immediate surge of energy. Maybe tomorrow will be different, who knows. As far as sustainable energy during my workout, it seems to work pretty well. I’ll continue to take it and document my results.
Still Taking Prime Male
At this point, I’m on my last week or so of my Prime Male Testosterone Booster. This stuff is pretty awesome! My strength has progressively increases over the past several weeks and muscles are a bit fuller.
I’ll probably take a break from Prime Male after this bottle is done. But I plan to jump back on this in another month or two. The only downfall to Prime Male is it does take a couple of weeks to kick in, so you have to good it time to start working.
