Catching some ZZZ's w/ AI 3Z (semi-sponsored) - Lexagon

Page 3 of 8 First 12345 ... Last

  1. 3Z is an essential now ... I'm a little afraid to go without it I love sleeping through the night!


  2. 3Z - Night 31 - 1/31/12
    Oh yeah! 1 full month of 3Z going on. Another great nights sleep, made sure I got ready early and was in bed passed out by 10:30 ... zzz's glorious zzz's. In fact I ended up getting up by myself (before alarm) like 1/2 hr early so I got everything done and hopped back into bed for a little while. Felt great, woke up with no problems. You know the drill.

    I will post my monthly review in a little bit.

    glad to hear that it is working very well for you

  4. So a little precursor to tonight ... I was a little not hyper but bouncy all day. Joked around w/ a friend between work and my boss was in a mood and that's always fun. So I was pumped for the gym. I probably could have gone @ like noon, but yeah I had to work. So I wasn't scared at the thought of Ultimate X this time I went in w/ the I'm gonna kill this attitude. I think it helped.

    Wed 2/1/12 - Ultimate X

    Since we were all warmed up and ready on the bikes when she got there, the trainer decided to switch it up on us and make us lift first. Ugh ... LOL It was all because some loud mouth called her predictable ... pfft!

    Barbell Curls on Step 360 - 20 @ 25lbs x 2
    Side Plank - 5 mins total (each side)
    Plank - 5 mins (45 on 15 off)
    Curls w/ Band on 360 - 12 @ max resistance x 2
    Shoulder Press w/ Band - 10 @ max resistance x 2
    Skullcrushers on Ball - 20 @ 25lbs x 2
    Spider Crunches - 10 x 2 (**** those are hard)
    Body Weight Squats - 10
    BW Squats on 360 - 10 x 2
    BW Rotating Squats on 360 - 15 x 2 (step off to side, up, step back, up, repeat)
    Tricep Ext w/ Bands on 360 - 10 x 2

    THEN
    Spin @ 30 mins

    THEN
    Crunches on Swiss Ball - 50
    Twists on Swiss Ball - 40

    We were all sweating like someone turned on the sprinklers in the room seriously. Felt like a sweat lodge in there. It was crazy intense and great. Felt kinda awesome in the end. Was drenched though. Had to sit in my car for a few minutes to cool down before driving home. Not too sore today, but I'm expecting some ab pain tomorrow. Either way that was a kick ass workout.

    Maniac - 1 heaping scoop w/ 1 scoop rasp/lem Recoverpro - 16oz
    Motivate - 2 caps
    Agmatine - 2 caps am/2 caps pre
    RecoverPro - 2 scoop Rasp/Lemon Mix in 24-26oz H2O - at work & 2 scoop Rasp Intra
    3z - 3 caps

    3Z - Night 32 - 2/1/12
    Got to bed around 10-10:30p. I fell asleep checking stuff on my phone lmfao! I was wiped out after class. Got a great nights sleep and didn't wake up til I was supposed to. Got up ready to go and hit the day running. Always nice to have a fresh start.

  5. First 31 Day Review (Hey Jan has 31 days!!)

    3Z has been a great staple added to my current "stack". I always figured that sleeping agents were all the same and had the same effects as melatonin, which results in waking up feeling more sleepy then when you hit the sack. 3z is completely different. It doesn't make me tired, but it does relax me enough to fall asleep. I can function 100% on it if I have to, or I can just kick back and wait til I'm tired. I take it anywhere from 1hr - 20 mins pre bed and have the same effect every time.

    Waking up in the AM feeling refreshed and not groggy at all is awesome. Makes you excited to get your day started and not looking around for the nearest source of caffeine. On that note I have also noticed that my need for caffeine has dropped. I typically stick to pre-wo with any caffeine or maybe 1 cup ever couple days. Nothing near what I used to need to get my day started. I'm really impressed.

    I've been taking 3Z for 2 full months now and have not had any upsets. I sleep the same every night and wake up the same every morning. I feel better over all being able to get at least 6 solid hrs of sleep and on weekends I've been known to get 8-9 hrs when allowed. What more could you ask for?!? The longer you take it the more your body adjusts and the better you feel.

    Thank you AI and 3Z for 2 months of sleep. I still have 2 more to go on this log, no worries.

    Great update, you are running an excellent log. Great that you dont need the morning coffee since you are so refreshed each morning . . . save you $$$

  7. Definitely ... I bought a Keurig for the AM's that I do need an extra kick, but that's still pretty cheap considering!

  8. 3Z - Night 33 - 2/2/12
    Another 10:30-11p night of sleep. And yet another night of deep restful peaceful sleep. Even the cats have stopped trying to wake me up in the middle of the night. Everyone is getting their zzzzz's (and no I didn't give them 3z).

    No gym yesterday - off day! Ready to hit the gym hard today though. Loading up on protein and water. Feeling a little dehydrated lately and I don't know why. Gotta check my sodium intake, that might be part of it! I am sufficiently sore from Wed night though. Those skull crushers and tri extensions really set in. I think I need to do some calf raises again soon, they feel neglected. I know they aren't in my training, but a few can't hurt! Or maybe it will LOL Core isn't quite as bad, but I can feel it. Got DL's on the plate tonight, YAY!

  9. gotta luv 3z it def delivers

    That's an awesome, review. It's nice to see people who respond so well. That's great to see that you've weened yourself off of caffeine. I hate it when I fall into those ruts with caffeine everyday and then trying to come off of it for a bit. I work shift work though, so it can be a necessary evil.

  11. 3Z - Night 34 - 2/3/12
    Friday nights are always good nights. Didn't get to bed super late and was able to sleep in a little bit. Nothing out of the ordinary to report, just another peaceful nights sleep. Think I ended up with 9 hrs off and on. Still ready for a jam packed day and a great workout!

    3Z - Night 35 - 2/4/12
    Once I feel asleep I stayed asleep for a few hours. Sleep just wasn't happening easily though, I blame it on the coke zero late that night. LOL Not anyones fault but my own. At least I know that I can fall back to sleep easily and stay asleep. Only about 5 hrs total, but still not bad.

    3Z - Night 36 - 2/5/12
    Asleep around 11:30, didn't wake up til 5-5:30, great night for me. Was exhausted from the busy weekend, lazy all day Sunday! All in all a great night. Now it's time to get this week started!

  12. Day 8 - Workout B Week 4 - Fri 2/3/2012

    A - Deadlift - 2x12 - 95lbs
    B1 - DB Shoulder Press (superset) 2x12 - 22.5lbs
    B2 - Wide-Grip Lat Pulldown 2x12 - 80
    C1 - Lunges (superset) 2x15 - 40lb barbell 15 each leg
    C2 - Captains Chair 2x 12 - 12

    Maniac - 1.5 scoop w/ 1 scoop Rasp/Lemon RecoverPro 12oz H2O
    Agmatine - 2 caps am/2 caps pre
    RecoverPro - 3 scoop Rasp/Lemon Mix - 32oz H2O
    3z - 3 caps

    Great workout, always love doing DL's. Everything else was pretty customary, realized I was supposed to be bending my knees during the DL's instead of doing SLDL's so it was a little different, but killed it still. Finally a night when the gym wasn't super packed too. Upp'd the weights on my lunges and DAMN! Definitely felt those. Core was still sore from Wed, so Capt Chair was a little hard but great either way.

    Weight's kinda fluctuating a little, but not dropping as much as I would like. Going to re-eval my diet and see if there's something I can change. Right now I'm eating higher cals on my lifting days per NROL4W, but I'm not sure that's helping. Going to try carb cycling a little that seemed to work last time. We'll see if that helps. Should be starting a log of App Nut Fat Free as well (bb.com win, but it'll be over here to!)

  13. Day 9 - Workout A Week 5 - Sat 2/4/2012

    A - Squat - 3x10 - 65lb
    B1 - Push-up (superset) - 10, 10, 10
    B2 - Seated Row 3x10 - 85lbs (straight bar)
    C1 - Step-up (superset) 3x10 - 17.5lb db in each hand
    C2 - Prone Jack-knife 3x10 - 10, 10, 10

    Maniac - N/A
    Agmatine - 4 caps pre
    RecoverPro - 3 scoop Rasp/Lemon Mix with 32oz H2O (made the night before)
    3z - 3 caps

    Cardio: 20 mins HIIT Elliptical - 2 mins @ lvl 5 speed 4-5 & 1 min @ lvl 9 speed 9-10

    Holy S**T! That was an intense workout followed by some "kill me now" HIIT! Did push-ups on a lower bench and they weren't so bad, hurt my chest though (which I know is good). Went up weight wise on the step-ups focused on going a little slower and really pushing w/ the foot on the step, phew makes it much harder lemme tell you. The busted my ass on the elliptical, I was spent by the end. Actually had to sit in the car and drink my protein shake before rushing home. Spent the rest of the day at a college softball tournament.

    All weights are slowly moving up, sore, but not bad. Just moved into 3 sets in this phase instead of 2, definitely takes more out of you that's for sure.

    Tried SAN Launch again, no headache this time so it definitely was lack of food that killed me last weekend. Made sure to get plenty of protein in post workout this weekend! No worries there.

  14. Day 10 - Workout B Week 5 - Fri 2/6/2012

    A - Deadlift - 3x10 - 105lbs
    B1 - DB Shoulder Press (superset) 3x10 - 25lbs
    B2 - Wide-Grip Lat Pulldown 3x10 - 85lbs
    C1 - Lunges (superset) 3x10 - 40lb barbell 15 each leg
    C2 - Captains Chair 3x12 - 12

    Cardio - 12 mins Stair Climber

    Maniac - 1.5 scoop w/ 1 scoop Rasp/Lemon RecoverPro 12oz H2O
    Agmatine - 2 caps am/2 caps pre
    RecoverPro - 2 scoop Rasp/Lemon Mix @ work - 3 scoop Rasp/Lemon Mix - 32oz H2O intra
    3z - 3 caps

    Another great workout, first time doing the 3x10 for these. Everything went up in weight and fairly easily. Need to work on the DL's a little grip didn't feel quite right. Shoulders and Pulldowns were feeling great, lunges about the same, but the last set seemed really hard. Legs were def getting tired. Stairway to Hell, was just that hell! Def not a good idea when your legs are tired, but I pushed through as long as I could (a whole 12 mins), but hey it's better than nothing right? Extra 120 cal burn, can't beat that! This plan doesn't even call for cardio actually, but I'm trying to get some extra fat burning in there!

    3Z - Night 37 - 2/6/12
    Took around 9:30-10pm, crashed out as soon as Smash ended, actually fell asleep and didn't realize it. Slept dead until around 4:20 when I woke up with some weird back pain. Decided to get up and get everything done in the kitchen then crawl back into bed. Ended up getting another 1.5 hrs sleep in ... felt great. If only sleep could cure allergies too ... blah!

  15. Awesome workout!!!

  16. 3Z - Night 38 - 2/7/12
    Planned on getting to bed around 10pm, got distracted and passed out around 11. Woke up with all sorts of energy. I guess having 5 hrs off yesterday was a good thing. No gym yesterday but I did a lot of cooking and experimenting in the kitchen. Good stuff all around! Ready to kick some major ass at Ultimate X tonight. Eventhough the trainer isn't there and we have a sub! He better make us sweat that's all I gotta say.

    do you take classes there?

    also a day off of all activity and good healthy eating can really rejuvanate you when you have been dieting.

    The only class I take at the gym is Ultimate X, full body sweat til you drop type class. Lately it's been 30 min spin/30 min full body weights. *see above logs*. I figured I might as well through something high intensity into the mix. Last time that helped w/ the weight loss/fat shred and it's easier than motivating my self to hop on the treadmill/elliptical, which I do, but classes are easier to focus at And they are Free and the instructor lifts and she's cute, so I guess it's a win-win-win all around LOL

    Plus at this gym everyone seems to be really nice. They all help each other and honestly nobody judges. I'm probably 1 of the heavier people in the class and not once has anyone given me a funny look. The other branch I used to go to you would get those, "why is she here looks" not ok!

  19. 3z stays delivering here I see

  20. I miss my 3z! Hopefully today the couple bottles i ordered comes in, great log to date!

  21. Ultimate X - Wed 2/7/2012

    Let's hope I can remember everything, that was one tough class!!

    Spin 30 mins - HIIT
    Barbell Curls (25lbs) - 24 full, 12 upper, 12 lower
    Squats (25lbs) - 36 (quick paced)
    Stationary Lunge on 360 - 36
    Barbell Rows (25lbs) - 36
    Front Raises (10lbs) - 36
    Wall sits w/ swiss ball - 3.5 mins
    Leg Raise w/ swiss ball - 36
    Jackknife with swiss ball - 36
    Push-ups on knees - 36

    Maniac - 1 scoop w/ 1 scoop Rasp/Lemon RecoverPro 12oz H2O
    Motivate - 2 caps
    Agmatine - 2 caps am/2 caps pre
    RecoverPro - 2 scoop Rasp/Lemon Mix @ work - 3 scoop Rasp/Lemon Mix - 32oz H2O intra
    3z - 3 caps

    I think that was all. We got maybe a couple seconds of break in between everything, but that's about it. My legs and shoulders were toast by the end. This was a sub teacher and she was a lot more peppy than the normal one. In fact, she kept look at me like she thought I wasn't pushing my hardest or something I don't know. Or she could tell that I knew how to actually do the exercises without needing help. Not sure. I did push myself, but it really got me on the wall sits, in fact I ended up pushing myself a lot lower than expected. Which in turn made me realize just HOW strong my quads are. It was pretty good. Definitely left there in a puddle of sweat that's for sure!

    3Z - Night 39 - 2/8/12
    So went to bed around 10:30-11p, woke up for some reason a little while later and asked what time it was .. it was freak 11:30p STILL I swear it felt like I had slept all night, I could have gotten up and run around for a while still. Passed right back out though and was dead through the rest of the night. Got up around 5am, got everything done, and back into bed to relax til it was time to get ready.

  22. 3Z - Night 40 - 2/9/12
    In bed and asleep by 10 I think, kinda strange, but kinda nice at the same time. Didn't wake up til 5:30, solid nights sleep. And much more than I'm used to on a week night. Definitely glad it's Friday. Not feeling as peppy as usual, but it's all allergies this time. Looks like garlic is being harvested and the new almond crops are going in .. oh joy! Oh well. Sleep is still great. By this afternoon I'll be ready to kill the gym!

  23. What from those two plants cause allergies? I'm curious, lol.
    RcB Since 09-06-2011 20:55 EST, Post 49

  24. Almonds are the worst, they produce a fine dust when they shake the trees. It's horrible. You can tell when it's almond season because there is what looks like really bad fog, nope its' the trees. Thankfully we have a couple more months til they do that. The garlic is more just the harvesting and kicking up of all the dust/dirt. Don't think there's anything actually in it that causes allergies.

  25. We get a fine yellow dust that settles/sticks to everything. That's when you know it's getting bad around here.
