    3Z - Night 54 - 2/23/12
    Bed around 11 as usual. Nothing super special just another nights sleep. Solid and straight through.

    3Z - Night 55 - 2/24/12
    Wait whaaa? I forgot to take my 3Z ... which I didn't realize until I woke up in the AM and couldn't figure out why I slept like crap. I thought I had taken it since I was so sleepy, but figured out it was my new allergy pills that knocked me out. Definitely tossed and turned more, oh well! First time in a long time I haven't had it. Kinda bummed me out LOL

    3Z - Night 56 - 2/25/12
    Bed around 11 or so had a really busy day. Was tired and ready to sleep that's for sure. Looking forward to sleeping in even a little on Sunday!

    3Z - Night 57 - 2/26/12
    Bed around 10-10:30 I think. Pretty early considering. But spending 2 days out in the sun watching softball tournaments can wear you out. Slept really well, got up no problem. Still feeling great. 3 more nights and it's time for a 60 day review

    Friday 2/24/2012

    Workout was 30 mins HIIT Cardio on Elliptical - 474 cal burn per HRM

    Maniac - 1 scoop w/ 1 RP Mix
    Agmatine - didn't take it for cardio
    RecoverPro - 24oz intra and 16oz post
    3Z - 3 caps

    Nothing super exciting to report honestly, just did some HIIT. I finished Stage 1 of NROL4W on Mon and decided to take it easy on the weights for the rest of the week so I can start Stage 2 on Monday. So I just went in and did some quick intense cardio. Plus I had the day off from work so it was EMPTY when I was there.

    Sat & Sun were off days. Spent most of the day at a softball tournament, watching not playing. College is a lot of fun. Left w/ a sunburn LOL Didn't do too much else super exciting haha! Definitely got some rest which is always nice.

    I think AI has tricked us into becoming 3z junkies. I had one of those forgot to take it nights recently also. I didn't sleep for **** either. Lol

    Great log.

    are you in college?

    I am glad you are getting something out of 3z and all our supplements. They make a nice difference for myself.

    Monday 2/27/2012

    Spin class that turned into Circuits ... LOL
    Per HRM - 570

    Basically it was bike for 10 ... jump off do some sort of weight station (curls, skullcrushers, etc), then hop back on the bike. It was very strange, but kinda cool at the same time. Definitely a good burn. And a nice change of pace, although I was sorta looking forward to a spin class!

    Decided to hold off on Stage 2 for the rest of the week, I didn't want to start out yesterday and not be 100% there. So I'll start next week instead and work on some classes this week. Let someone else tell me what to do for a change, honestly it's kinda nice. Sometimes I need to be able to just tune out and do what people say.

    Maniac - 1.5 scoop w/ 1 RP Mix
    Agmatine - N/A
    RecoverPro - N/A - completely forgot
    3Z - 3 caps

    Got to bed 10:30 or so, usually try to take the 3z 1/2-1hr before bed, depending on what I'm doing and whether I remember. Although even when I've taken it 10 mins before I still manage some solid sleep Crashed out last night, slept clear through the night and a little later than normal.

    Wednesday 2/29/2012 - Ultimate X

    OK let's see if I can remember everything - we didn't do Spin tonight because we had like 100 people (ok maybe only 20 or so, but still) We did floor circuits instead. It was rough, not gonna lie. Basically did 25 at a time w/ a 15 sec break in between.

    Jumping Jacks - 50x2
    BW Squats - 50
    Lunges - 50
    1 leg Squat - 50
    Barbell Curls - 50
    Skullcrushers - 50
    Bench Press - 50
    Shoulder Press w/ Band - 50
    Single Shoulder Press - 50 each side
    Push-ups - 40 (5 sets of 8)
    Plank - 4 mins total
    Squat to Step-up - 50
    Jump Squats - 50

    1 set of fast paced circuits
    Barbell Curl - 20
    Skullcrushers - 30
    Bench - 30
    Shoulder Press - 15
    Single Shoulder PRess - 15 each

    Crunches - 50
    Oblique Crunch - 25

    And I think that was all. I was toast at the end that's all I know. Never seen the class so full, but it was kinda cool. Definitely a great workout. My shoulder was burning a little afterwards, but that happens. Not feeling to horrible today, made sure to get my RP in there All-in-all a great workout

    Maniac - 1.5 scoop w/ 1 RP Mix
    Agmatine - N/A
    RecoverPro - 3 scoops intra
    3Z - 3 caps

    3Z - Night 60 - 2/29/12
    Fell asleep around 10:30, probably could have passed out at 7 when I got home I was wiped. Got a great night sleep though and didn't wake up until I was supposed to this AM. A little groggy, but like I mentioned before my allergies are out of control and those meds always make me feel bleh in the AM. Once I was moving around I was fine! Looking forward to relaxing a little the next couple days.

    Looks like it's 60-day review time - I'll get that posted up hopefully later today If not tomorrow, I know I owe an Ag review as well

    Haha. I know the feeling. I immediately tossed another non blender bottle shaker upon opening. I love those things.

    3Z - Night 61 - 3/1/12
    Another 10:30-11pm night, seems to be the norm for me right now. Definitely ok with that, no work on Fridays til April. Great sleep was up early to hit another Ultimate X class (yeah I love them!) Still ready to go in the AM. Nothing much has changed there.

    3Z - Night 62 - 3/2/12
    Bed around 11:30-12, little bit later, but again not worried. It was a Friday night, watched TV/movie the usual. Another great nights sleep. Woke up a little groggy, but again my allergies are through the roof. Still had plenty of energy.

    3Z - Night 63 - 3/3/12
    12-12:30 bedtime, was watching movies and catching up on DVR, didn't do much during the day so a little restless. Did manage to cook up a bunch of yummy food on the grill for this week though. Slept great as usual, woke up feeling like hell, but allergies. Can't get away from that one, the sleep itself is great!

    3Z - Night 64 - 3/4/12
    Passed out around 10:30, had a pretty long day. Allergies were killing me (my eyes are dying), fell asleep for a little while (dead asleep), woke up for 15 mins and then passed right back out again. No big deal, still woke up this AM ready to go. Plenty of energy.

    Friday 3/2/2012 - Ultimate X (yes again)

    This time was A LOT different. I went to the old location I used to work out at all the time (same trainer as my Wed class). We had to use the Bosu for everything ... ugh! Hopefully I remember everything .. not sure this time though.

    Started with Planks to Push-ups (hold plank 30 secs go into pushups)
    Push-ups went ... 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12 - then more plank ... then backwards 12, 10, 8, 6, 4, 2
    Some yoga stuff (tree, arabesque, chair and 1 other) - standing on the floor (for those of us not coordinated for the bosu - that'd be me)
    Up on Bosu -
    Dumbbell Curls - 30
    Tricep Extenstions
    Round of Yoga
    Back down Plank to Pushups
    10, 8, 6, 4, 4, 2, 2 ... 8, 6, 4, 2, 2
    Up on Bosu -
    Dumbbell Curls - 30
    Tricep Kickbacks - 30
    Round of Yoga
    Narrow Pushup to Plank
    2, 2, 4, 6, 8 - 10, 8, 6, 4, 2
    Another round of Yoga

    Think that was it. That was a lot harder than the last class, in a different way. Shoulder didn't like all those push-ups so I was on knees for a few sets. Crazy I swear! She's a nut. But now I'm all sore and it feels pretty good, so I'm not going to complain But I am definitely ready to get back to my weights that's for sure.

    Plus I was kinda crazy and decided to run for 20 mins afterwards. *eyeroll* - Wasn't ready to leave the gym yet LOL

    Maniac - 1.5 scoop w/ 1 RP Mix
    Agmatine - N/A
    RecoverPro - 3 scoops
    3Z - 3 caps

    Put in a solid 60 mins on the Elliptical - which is a record for me. Felt great. haven't been able to hang that long on the elliptical in a long time. Wasn't super excited about missing the Spin class I wanted to go to, but it worked out well. Still got in a great workout and I was up so early I had ALLLLLL day left to do NOTHING! Actually I plopped down and played video games, but nothing productive haha!

    HRM = 655 cal

    Maniac - 1.5 scoop w/ 1 RP Mix
    Agmatine - N/A
    RecoverPro - 3 scoops
    3Z - 3 caps

    Everything is going pretty well, no real new updates. Haven't been taking the Agmatine lately, just because I haven't been lifting heavy. But I go back to my regularly scheduled program on Monday (NROL4W Stage 2), so I'll pick that back up again then. Ready to get back into a normal routine that's for sure. Little nervous since the exercises are changing, but I'll be fine.

    60 Day 3Z Review

    Can't believe it's already been 60 days on this journey. All I have to say is AI did well with 3Z. I've noticed that it actually starts working better the longer you take it. The sleep is still amazing and much deeper than it was to start. I'm managing an average of 6-7 hrs a night which is great since it's completely uninterrupted. Definitely waking up with more energy and ready to hit the day. The couple nights I forgot it, the sleep wasn't nearly as great and there were certainly more middle of the night wake-ups. This also marks 90 days since I started taking it (30 on my own 60 sponsored) and I have not 1 complaint. And I imagine that it will just keep working the same. Really glad that I got a chance to log this product! Definitely worth it.

    Well done AI Sports ... well done! 3Z is definitely going to be a staple for me. I don't think I could give up this kind of sleep! Nor do I want to give up great sleep.

    Glad it worked for you. I used to take 3z 2-3 times a week and now I take it just about every night, well on weekends I might skip it sometimes, I found out by error that i take mine with my last meal about 1 hour before bed, then take hghpro right before I snooze and I have been having great sleep with this approach. Thank you for your review, I have enjoyed your log immensly. I agree with the longer you take it it keeps working and that is something that matters a lot to me , that the product keeps it s effectiveness.

    Monday - 3/5/2012

    NROL4W Stage 2 - Workout A Wk 1 - 2x10

    Squat/Push-Press - 30lbs
    Step-up (superset) - 17.5lbs
    Dumbbell 1 point row - 17.5lbs
    Static Lunge Rear Foot Elevated (superset) - 17.5lbs
    Push-ups (incline) - 10
    Plank (superset) - 2x60 sec
    Cable Horizontal Woodchop - 35lbs

    Maniac - 1.5 scoop w/ 1 RP Mix
    Agmatine - N/A
    RecoverPro - 3 scoops
    3Z - 3 caps

    Great workout. First one of Stage 2, felt good to be back lifting weights again. Definitely missed them. Gym was surprisingly empty last night, usually Mondays are pretty busy, not that I'm complaining. Opted to skip out on cardio, I've been a little tired lately, blaming my allergies on that, just wanted to get home.

    3Z - Night 65 - 3/5/12
    Fell asleep around 10-10:30p again. Was pretty tired, so it didn't take long. Slept clear through the night. Woke up a little tired this AM. Hoping I'm not getting sick like everyone else in the house. Thankfully I felt better after moving around and getting a little food in me.

    11pm bedtime, I was ready for it. Didn't even realize it was that late actually LOL Been sleeping pretty solid through the nights, which is nice. Haven't seen a change in my patterns at all really. Might try to get a few longer nights of sleep in this weekend, if possible. No workout yesterday just errands and food prep

    What kind of food prep do you do in advance? I'm thinking grilling a bunch of chicken tonight. I'm so much better at sticking to my weekly plan if I take an afternoon and cook for the week to come.

    I BBQ'd a bunch of chicken and pork chops this weekend, since the weather was so nice. I was already making dinner, might as well utilize the charcoal while it's hot! And they are all the right portion size so I just cut them up and throw them in my lunch! I like easy things.

    I get my lunches together the night before so I don't have to think in the AM...LOL Just make breakfast and get out of the house.

    Awesome! I wish I could get my wife to use the grill. She loves it, but is unsure of her grilling abilities, lol. I've grilled pork chops a few times in the past couple of weeks. There's an oak tree in my backyard, so I find some fallen branches and add them to the flames. The pork chops really take in the smoke taste. We grilled salmon tonight.

    It's honestly one of my FAVORITE things to do! Not sure why or where that desire came from, but I would much rather cook on the grill than inside. Encourage her, it's really no different than anything else. What's the worst that could happen you undercook something and have to throw it back on for a couple minutes

    I need to get some fish and start grilling that too. Do you use cedar planks or just right on the grill?

    I think I got everything, that was pretty close at least. It was a rough class, but I left there definitely feeling good about it. And sweating like a madwoman! Actually finished all my water and could have used more. Oh and I was freaking EXHAUSTED by the end. So glad I went with 2 scoops of Maniac for this class!
    HRM = 685cal

    Maniac - 2 scoop w/ 1 RP Mix
    Agmatine - N/A
    RecoverPro - 3 scoops
    3Z - 3 caps

    3Z - Night 67 - 3/7/12
    10pm ... out like a light, actually I think I fell asleep before that just because I was so tired. I don't know what's getting to me, but I've been a lot more tired lately. Hoping it's just allergies and not that I'm getting sick or anything. I'll have to work on some sleep this weekend. Hopefully that will help. AM's are still going well Once I'm up and moving I'm good to go.

    Thur - 3/8/2012

    Cardio on Elliptical - about 30 mins .. HRM=385cal

    Maniac - 2 scoop w/ 1 RP Mix
    Agmatine - N/A
    RecoverPro - 3 scoops
    3Z - 3 caps

    Kinda just decided to go for an extra day of cardio. Had a lot on my mind and sometimes hitting the gym helps clear it some. Got a good burn in, felt great, and pretty sure it helped me sleep a little better that night.

    NROL4W - Stage 2 - Workout B1 - 2x10

    Wide-grip DL - 95lbs
    Bulgarian Squat (superset) - 10lbs
    Hammer Strength Lat Pulldown - 45, 55
    Swiss Ball Crunch (Tripleset) - 10
    Reverse Crunch - 10

    Sat - 3/10/12 - Relax Day!

    Nothing going on today, planned a Spike day since I weighed in 2lbs lighter (I know sounds backasswards, but it works). Felt pretty good about myself too though, so decided to enjoy the day. Went shopping, got some new clothes for my trip at the end of the month. Was able to get into the next size down on most of my shorts/pants. Shirts are the same, but I figured that would be the case. And I finally got a new belt! YAY!

    Sun - 3/11/12

    Decided to hit the outdoors and go for a run on the bike path. It was probably about 70 deg, sunny with a nice cool breeze. I must be doing something right because I ended up with 4miles of jogging and it wasn't too bad. The last mile was a little rough, but I'm not used to running on pavement or running outside just yet. Felt nice to get out though. Legs are a little jelly like.

    HRM = 685

    3Z - Night 68 - 3/8/12
    Tried to get to bed around 10pm. Had a REALLY hard time sleeping. Not much I could do about it though, just got some stress going on that I'm trying to work out. Once I fell asleep I was fine. Woke up in the AM as usual.

    3Z - Night 69 - 3/9/12
    1-2am, can't remember. Had tons of energy for some reason. Once I crashed out I was good to go though Slept much better. Ended up sleeping in a little Sat AM ... yay for that.

    3Z - Night 70 - 3/10/12
    11p bed time, exhausted from the day. Shopping takes a lot out of you LOL Got a few new things, company was being difficult but either way. Watched a couple movies and passed out. Another great night sleep. Woke up feeling like crud, but it was a nice day so I sucked it up. Glad I did.

    3Z - Night 71 - 3/11/12
    Bed around 10-10:30p. Had a little trouble falling asleep, but once I made it there I was done. I think the run did me in ... LOL Slept great though, woke up a little eh this AM, but stupid DST, throws me off! I'll be fine, got plenty of energy now. Still not middle of the night wake-ups which really is all I care about.

    One thing to note, the past week or so I've been going up to 2 scoops of Maniac pre-workout. Seems to be doing well. Been exhausted at the end of the workday and need the extra kick. Might switch back to Maniac/Motivate combo instead though. I need to start up my agmatine again at some point. Been kinda lazy about that, oops. Although I might let it go just a little longer, I want to see what kinda gains I can get w/out it too. Just for comparison.


    **Sorry it's taken me so long to update, the past few weeks have been a little rough. Got some stuff going on, but I'm still using the products as always Weekdays seem easier for me to update. I'll make sure it stays good until the end though. Only 20 more days ... crazy! **

    Oh cool that works too.

    It's a day where you eat 2x's your BMR basically, kinda like a refeed day I guess. So 3 days I eat 1200ish, 3 I eat 1600 and 1 anywhere from 2800-3200 cals. It's pretty cool and oddly enough works.

    I like the freedom of knowing that I can eat 1 day a week, makes the other days seem that much easier.

    3Z - Night 72 - 3/12/12
    Hehe, midnight bedtime. Good friend and I got caught up playing Borderlands on PC, oh well. I don't get to see him much, lives on the other coast. Feel asleep really quick though. Woke up at 5:30 surprisingly awake, like moreso than usual. I'm wondering if these work better on a 5-6 hr window than closer to 8. Guess we'll see.

    It's actually pretty cool, I was a little skeptical at first, but now I'm like OH yeah! Bruce/D2Football is the one that got me interested. You should check it out sometime.

    3Z - Night 73 - 3/13/12
    11pm bed tonight. Was a long night, no workout had the day off. Stayed up playing comp games again, hey sometimes you just need to let off steam. Took me a few to fall asleep, but nothing bad. Slept solid through the night. Woke up pretty easily.
