    Workout 1

    1 scoop Purple InTrain (PIT) consumed 20 mins pre workout
    1 scoop Purple InTrain (PIT) sipped during workout

    20 minutes stretching & warmups
    40 minutes taijiquan / kung fu
    40 minutes meditation & iron palm training
    45 minutes weight training
    10 minute cooldown

    Weights
    3x5 Deadlifts
    3x5 Bench press
    3x5 BB Rows
    50 Dips / 50 Chins

    Notes
    Most of my workouts are based around martial arts, but I still do endurance and strength training at the end. The only product I am using is Purple InTrain. I also wanted to note that while this adds up to approx. a <2 hour workout, only about 40 minutes is spent actually lifting weights. Much of it is low impact technique training.

    Purple InTrain First Impressions
    * Mixes fine, no sediment or need to "reshake"
    * One of the best tasting supplements I've tried so far. Think of a light rasberry flavor.
    * Beta Alanine Tingle is present.
    * Gives me a boost mentally and physically. It seems like the Vitamin B is playing a definite roll.
    * Foam is not too bad, a little sediment left at the end, but nothing significant.

    More to come.

    Sweet, thanks AE.

    I'll try to get some before and after pics.
    It's pretty objective since all I'm using is InTrain and a multivitamin.
    Post workout consists of a high protein meal with whole milk.

    None. There are few products out there that do that to me.

    They are def. compatible I would say. 1 scoop of each sipped during workout. How does it compare...hmm too soon to tell. The BA tingle is the same, endurance is high up and pumps are there.

    Workout 2

    2 scoops Purple InTrain (PIT) consumed pre and during workout

    20 minutes stretching & warmups
    40 minutes taijiquan / kung fu
    40 minutes meditation & iron palm training
    45 minutes weight training
    10 minute cooldown

    Weights
    10x5 close grip bench press
    100 Dips

    Notes
    Well I'm kind of playing catch up here. I've had the product for a few days but just started the log. Last night I went and bought some more cinderblocks to add to my iron palm stand. I tell ya, that was a workout right there. I then proceeded to do my routine. I added another 10 hits to my IP bag today. That makes the total of 40. With both hands, that means I hit the bag 320 times per day (4 different strikes each hand.) My bag is filled with soy beans. In 2 weeks my progression will be 50 times twice per day, making a total of 800 hits of the bag everyday for a year. At which point I change to steel/iron shot. This is added to medicine I use for my hands and also a breathing/meditation routine done prior. Here's a picture for fun.


    Weights
    Todays weight training was a focus on "push" ... mainly chest and triceps. I was completely gassed at the end of the workout which was my goal. Drank a muscle milk RTD post workout. They were on sale $4/4 at the local supermarket. I was very pumped after the workout, and the morning after (right now) I'm very sore in my chest and tricep area as well as front delts. I'm going in a few minutes to do a "pull" workout as well as my martial arts routine. Will be back in a little while. Maybe will add a pic or two of the physique.



    Purple InTrain Notes
    I had slight hunger preworkout. The InTrain helped this, as well as helped my endurance. I still think this is one of the best supplements out there. The taste is great, and there's WMS, Whey, Leucine and Beta Alanine... not to mention a hefty dose of Vitamin B-12 to get the energy levels high. Here's a few pics for fun.

    20 minutes stretching & warmups
    40 minutes taijiquan / kung fu
    40 minutes meditation & iron palm training
    45 minutes weight training
    10 minute cooldown

    Weights
    5x8 Deadlifts
    5x8 Inverted Rows
    5x8 Wide grip Chins
    3x8 BB curls
    3x8 Lateral raises

    Notes
    Good workout today. I felt strong, got a good night's rest last night and had high spirits. The only drawback was a relatively sore lower back. This is due to my neighbor being a drunk the other night, and creating a neighborhood domestic disturbance. I calmly walked him to my backyard, and after calming him down we had a nice wrestling match. No police were involved, and I gassed him (as well as myself) while avoiding any serious problems.

    So in this case I went light with my deadlifts, something I didn't want to do but did anyway to be safe.



    Purple InTrain Notes
    Still loving this. I had a serving this AM as well, simply because it tastes good and gets me energized without a stimmed out type of feeling.

    Here are two pictures I took post workout, to give you an idea of my physique. At these pictures I am 5'8", probably around 145lbs. Again, my goals are not to become a bodybuilder. They were in the past, but I have since changed that. My goal is to become strong, look good and be agile/flexible.

    I apologize for the bad pictures as it was a camera phone. But I made up for that with my hawaiin shorts.


    Relaxed:


    Again with the camera phone, hard to get any good shots.

    Nope PIT is just a new product, they still have PW. It would be a nice combo!

    Add strength, if size is added while keeping BF low, that'd be OK with me. I don't have to make any weight as I'm not an MMA fighter, more of a traditional martial artist.

    And thank you for the comment on the pic bro.

    enjoy the lean look as long as you can, it gets a whole lot harder as you get older.

    one thing i will tell you, the bigger you get the harder it will be to maintain as you get older. you will fill out as you age, almost a given. i have gone from 260 to 210 and have more bf today than 10 years ago at the heavier weight-of course as you get older you tend not be motivated to train as hard, lots of factors involved including job/family-kids. even arnold had to 'cut', lol.

    I think the set-up for your hands is bad-ass, man. Also, nice tats!

    I'm not sure how much leaner you could possibly be, Jon. You are at the apex of leanness, my friend!

    Oh, and respond to my PMs, d*ckhead!

    True, very true! Even now my insatiable hunger is getting the best of me, chicken and pasta salad. Although my dad still is lean, I don't think he has the appetite I have grown to enjoy

    nice man! It's just the program my teacher has me on. Wolf's Law if you will: a gradual increase. Jumping into iron right now would be equivilent to a new lifter going in and trying to bench 300lbs. The beans are surprisingly hard though, and still leave occasional bruises.

    Nice!!! I like Muay thai. Very good art there.

    i've been doing martial arts since I was about 14 or 15. I'm 25 now. I've studied parker Kenpo, Northern Shaolin, Hung gar, Jeet kune do. I've been into the internal arts (taijiquan and baguazhang) for about 2 years now, and just started my hand training approx. 2 months ago. I've always dug the chinese systems, there's alot of similar principles that you see with them. It's cool to cross train and say "oh, that's like in this system XYZ". I only practice the "internal" arts now. I can't remember half the stuff I've learned over the years, as far as details of forms and nuances... but it's all muscle memory now. It's almost like I can do it without thinking.

    Since everyone seems interested in the iron palm, I thought I'd post a video of my teacher doing some breaking.

    Just to update...
    Took yesterday off to recover. Was pretty tired from my earlier workouts plus a busy weekend and a long class on Sunday.

    Will be hitting the weights and bags again today, so look for an update.

    Purple InTrain
    I noticed I was not as sore as I usually am after consecutive push/pull workouts. Been drinking this once in the morning, 1-1.5 scoops along with normal protein intake. Like I said, nothing in my routine has changed except the addition of Purple InTrain.

    I would say endurance has been increased as well. This would be a good supplement for someone cutting, as I see alot of people who workout on an empty stomach. This is the alternative for aminos and a small meal - a given amount of fast acting carbs, leucine, whey and performance enhancers such as BA with minimal cals. I would say my endurance has definitely increased, perhaps I will put that to the test this week!!!

    Workout 4

    1 scoops Purple InTrain (PIT) consumed during workout

    20 minutes stretching & warmups
    40 minutes taijiquan / baguazhang
    40 minutes meditation & iron palm training
    45 minutes weight training
    10 minute cooldown

    Weights
    3x12 Squats
    10x5 close grip bench press
    100 dips
    1st set: 27

    Notes
    Here's how I'm going to measure endurance caused by Purple InTrain:
    Max out my 1st set of dips on push day, then compare with no PIT halfway through this cycle, and then pick back up after a few workouts without.

    I got 27 on my first set. Not bad after doing 10 sets of close grip bench. I tell ya they were a struggle though. Had a good session, and I have a steak cooking on the grill right now, with some cheese potatoes. Getting hungry just thinking about them.

    One thing to note is that it was extremely humid out today (almost 90 degrees.) My weights are located in my basement, where it's nice and cool. However I had to go out to my garage for my powertower and well the humidity just makes me plain lazy.

    Training kung fu again later. Have my BJJ/Wing chun friend coming over to spar and grapple with for fun. Will consume a muscle milk after that, just to be safe.

    Pulling comes tomorrow
