  1. 3Z - Night 47 - 2/16/12
    Bed around 9:30pm (early I know), although honestly I could have passed out around 7:15p if I had really wanted to LOL Slept like a freaking baby. Straight through the night, however the one downside to falling asleep so early. I was up at 4:15a ... I just got up did what I had to do and went back to sleep for another 1.5 ... haha! Still woke up ready to kill the day! I need to get to the gym. But I feel 100% better, yesterday was a LOOOOONG day!

    3Z - Night 48 - 2/17/12
    Bed around 11 I think, maybe a little earlier. Not really in any hurry since it was Friday night. Had a great workout though. Slept really well as usually and was up way before the alarm. Kinda strange. Had a lot planned for Sat though so makes sense. Got up and ready to hit the gym.

    3Z - Night 49 - 2/18/12
    10:30-11p passed out. House was quiet so it was pretty relaxing all evening. Didn't do anything after errands were done just vegg'd! AM workout was pretty brutal. Another awesome night's sleep. Woke up a little earlier than I would have liked, but hey good sleep is better than no sleep!

    3Z - Night 50 - 2/19/12
    Just exhausted. No clue why, probably because it was a lazy day and a spike day. Lots of food! Bed around 10:30 or so, passed the F out. Slept clear through the night, woke up about 10 mins before the alarm, but didn't actually get up LOL Everyone was off today, some holiday or something so I took my time. Still ready to kick it into gear. Little groggy, but I'm blaming my raging allergies on that one. Hate this time of the year.


  2. Not sure I'm going to make it to gym tonight, my right calf/hamstring are really bugging me and I'm not sure why. I tried convincing myself it was just DOMs, but I know it's not. Feels more like a slight strain. Guess it's rest and ice for me tonight, booooooring! I have all this pent up energy .. oh well! Better to let it rest then really injure myself I suppose.

  4. LOL no clue, it was fine all weekend, laid down for a little while last night, got up and wham outta nowhere!

    I'm stretching it now ... hoping it loosens up a little. Feels better to walk on it, it's just weird. I've never had a DOM like that before and only in one leg LOL

  5. Sounds like an excuse to get into a hot tub, lol.

    LOL if I had one that would be awesome! My gym is kinda dumb like that.

    I think I am just going to go and if it's that bad, just leave. I need my gym time

  7. There's good pain and bad pain. One you push through...

    I hope everything goes alright.

    agreed, injury prevenation is very important in fitness. I used to overlook it, and thats why i had two serious injuries.

    Keep up the good work

    how is the calve/hammie feeeling? did the ice and rice work?

    Yeah I have it up right now, it's starting to feel a little better. I think the hammie pain came from over compensating for the calf w/out realizing it. I stretched it out pretty good, feels sore, but not quite hurt. I'll just keep stretching and see what happens. No cardio tonight. LOL

    I'm hoping for good. I'll know soon enough lol

  11. Day 16 - Workout B Week 8 - Mon 2/20/2012

    A - Deadlift - 3x8 - 95lbs
    B1 - DB Shoulder Press (superset) 3x8 - 30lbs
    B2 - Wide-Grip Lat Pulldown 3x8 - 90lbs
    C1 - Lunges (superset) 3x8 - 40lb barbell 15 each leg
    C2 - Captains Chair 3x15 - 15

    Cardio - 15 mins walk @ 3.0 - just wanted to stretch out, felt really good.

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

    Decided to hit the gym regardless of calf pain. Seemed to workout great. Dropped the weight down on the DL's just in case and worked on form. Didn't up any weights tonight, everything seems to be great where it is. Only managed 7 on the last set of DB Shoulders, but that's ok. I'm a'ok with staying at the 30's for a while Made sure to stretch out my legs a lot as I rested. ESp for the lunges (did stationary instead of walking), no problems. Rock on! Just realized that I only have 2 more workouts for this stage and I'm off for a week .. wow .. already .. geez! I've made some epic progress already.

    Also got a chance to test out my new HRM (Polar FT7) and I have to say I love it. Definitely got a more accurate calorie burn for the whole day. Glad I made the leap

    Finally finished my first bottle of Agmatine last night as well .. .so I'll shoot up a review shortly All I have to say is I LOVE it

    3Z - Night 51 - 2/20/12
    Bed around 11, I was exhausted, actually I don't even remember falling asleep. Just remember waking up and turning the TV off and passing back out again. Woke up this AM early and got all my prep back. It was COLD! LOL

  12. 3Z - Night 52 - 2/21/12
    Bed around 11, love having DVR that's all Another great nights sleep. No interruptions till that dumb alarm clock went off, but that's normal right? Plus I woke up realizing that tomorrow is my Friday .. YAY!

    Curious to see what the HRM says about my Ulitmate class tonight.

  13. Suh-weet! Tomorrow is my Friday, too! Refresh my memory; what is Ultimate class?

  14. Still following! You have been keeping a great log, detail about the products effects on your sleep patterns and recovery. I have been falling asleep better over the past few years . . . you know, age I still stay up late but not as late as before, always been a night person. During the summer when I am off I will be up til 3,4, or even 5AM. As I have to get back to work mode I will def look to the assistance of 3Z.

    When an omega male is born it's game over



  15. I'm a night person, too. It's nothing for me to stay up all night finding random things to do. I just have too much to do anymore to be able to stay up much past 10 and then still get up and do everything the next day, lol. I can't imagine what it will be like to have a kid...or four

  16. Keep up the good work Lexagon. Keep stretching it out , even if it is better, its best to stretch all the time(after workouts for more long stretches) and they do prevent injuries from happening. Many tyimes a muscle can shortened up and stretching just stretches it out

    and yes very nice log. Thanks for stopping in my log, very sweet of you

  17. Workout: Ultimate X (class @ gym)

    Which consists of the trainer kicking our azz till we can't walk anymore. Last night we started with weights and got into spin for the last 15-20 mins (typically it's the other way around). Hopefully I can remember everything.

    Barbell Curls (on a Step 360) x 50
    Skull Crushers x 50
    Push-ups x 50
    Crunches x 100
    Shoulder Press w/ band (singles and both shoulders) x 50
    Lunges w/ step x 50
    Body Weight Wide Stance Squats x 30
    Body Weight Narrow Stance Squats x 30
    Back Lunge to Step-up x 50

    That's total over the whole 45 mins, we started out with isolated exercises and the last 10 mins was circuits of Curls, Skullcrushers, Push-ups and Shoulder Press. WOW Then 15 mins of some super intensity Spin. Legs = Jello! But I love that class. Approx ~750 cal burn. Thank you HRM!

    3Z - Night 53 - 2/22/12
    Bed around 11, again. Although I could have passed out when I got home from that class. So tired. Either way got some great sleep. Woke up a little late this AM, but it happens. Still feel ready to hit the day.

    I am such a night person. But I've learned that I can't survive off no sleep anymore. Weekends are a whole different story, 1-2am isn't abnormal unless I've had a long day. I used to be the one that could stay up til 3-4am and get up for work at 6 and be fine 3-4 days a week. But I was a lot younger and very addicted to caffeine. LOL

    Keep well stretched, that's for sure. Was really glad to see no leg pain (other than tired muscles from class) last night. Stretched out some more this AM and not even a pull like yesterday. So whatever it was is gone now. LOL
    Your welcome

    Funny how when you do NOTHING you are SO tired! You would think you would be rested and ready to go haah.

    Glad to hear the sleep is good though!

    Whenever I only get like 4-5 hours of sleep, Caffeine become my best friend the whole day lol

  21. Trying to decide if I want to take a class in the AM since I have the day off, skip gym or just do cardio myself. Tough choice.

    Excited though got my **** protein and bars in

  22. 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

  23. 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.

  25. 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.
