I usually do mostly free weight exercises but today decided to switch it up and do all machines/cables with higher reps (12-15). I think it makes a difference doing machines/higher reps as far as utilizing Animal Pump to it fullest. Probably due to keeping the muscles under constant tension for as along as possible. It also allows the intra to work at its best by helping you with the stamina to pound out 70-85 reps (total) on any given machine/cable exercise. With all these working in a synergistic relationship you can just feel the torrent flood your muscles with nourishment when your done.

So are you becoming a regular with the red stim pill in the Pump pack now? I'll bet your GF isn't to happy about that LOL!
Good stuff man, I'm enjoying the log.

I went back to the soccer field to torture myself again. 45mn of lunges (small breaks every so often) then 15 minutes of side to sides along the mid-field line, a couple laps around the track back wards (really helps my hips) and then I laid on the field for a while trying to regain my senses.
loving the pump today, busy day and it was just what I needed to help power through my workout. I filled up my intra-aid with a few ice cubes to keep it extra cold and left it at the entrance to the field, that way every time i made a lap i got to take a big gulp I brought my torrent with me, instead of making it at home, and while it was still good, it is much better cold.
My music of choice for leg day.

Sore as fook today, I slammed a scoop of Intra-aid with breakfast to help with recovery since I had a long walk to class. Sorry if that wasnt the exact scope of how I should be using these products, but it helped me make it too class

I carbed up today like a fiend. I had a cup of cereal for break fast today, archer farms high protein cinnamon something or other, so tasty. For lunch I had a double turkey meat pumpkin bagel sandwich, I have an einstein bagel on campus thats part of the meal plan, so sweet. In addition to the sandwich I had 2 fish sandwiches form the lunch room(bun included) and 2 country fried steak patties with a scoop of mash potatoes. for dinner i had about 16 pieces of sushi.
And of cource the prerequisite protein shakes and orange juice/egg white shakes.
The reason I mention all this is todays workout was INSANE I've done low carb/carb ups before and the workouts are usually better, but I was so pumped and energized today It was rediculous. I thought my triceps were going to pop out of my shirt, they were so pumped the last few sets I did were so painfull I almost had to quit.
This leads me to believe that both Animal pump and intra-aid work better in a high carb environment.

Its been a couple days since I was in the gym, Halloween and homework have distracted me, but it felt good to throw around some Iron today. Sometimes you forget how much of a stress reliever working out is, everything else just falls away when your lifting, you could have anything in the world happening outside the gym, but inside its just you and the weights.
Animal pump never ceases to amaze, I left out the red pill today and instead had a little bit of coffee I brewed up, vanilla hazelnut form this local coffee shop, good sh!t. Intra-aid helps me squeeze out those last few reps like nobody's business. I'm really getting used too having a drink during my workout, I think it helps not only with nutrients, but that mental edge where your drinking the strength to power through the next set of deadlifts I remembered to make my torrent shake before I left and threw it in the fridge, It tastes sooooo good when its cold, I think I've mentioned this before but I'll be damned if it doesn't taste like jolly rancher.

Very creative on the pre-workout nutrition man. I'm liking it. My wife makes Hazelnut coffee all the time. My buddies call it "*** coffee" but I love it.... shhhh, don't tell anyone

Since my gym doesnt have a squat rack I've been forced to utilize other things to work my legs. I've really enjoyed doing Lunges, db squats, leg presses, among other excercises. Nut today I felt like some squats just had to be done. So I loaded up the flat bench BB and used that as a modified box squat type apparatus. They actually work pretty good, the hard part though is when you get up into the havier weights you have to really support it with your arms getting the bar back down too the supports.
I dosed my Animal pump without the red pill again, and I was glad, some body had the air off in the gym and it was 75+ degrees in there, i thought i was gonna die. But i sitll powered through with the Aid of Intra-Aid, I just sweat bullets everywhere. And as usual i had my torrent shake when i got home, I tried it mixed with milk today: note too self, do not mix torrent with milk. I still choked it down, but it was not pleasant.
