AllieNinja's iForce INTIMIDATE log
I'm Allie and I'll be running this hurr INTIMIDATE from iForce for a month, thanks to Vaughn, Joe, Josh, and everyone else at iForce. <3
My goals for this log are to make my numbers on the big 3 go up as much as possible, to pack on as much muscle in 1 month as humanly possible, and to not become a lard ass in the process.
Weight = 128.2 lbs
Body fat measurements: I am TERRIBLE at this, but if I'm equally terrible at it in a month at least I'll be consistent.
According to the Jackson/Pollock 7 Caliper Method, this calculates my body fat percentage to be 13.68%. I HIGHLY doubt it is this low, but like I said I am really bad at doing the skinfolds, so I am just using this for reference. I'll be more going by lifts going up consistently, and the mirror.
I'll be doing an upper/lower split, 4x/week. I may throw in a day of HIIT here and there on the treadmill, haven't decided yet.
Basically gonna be shoveling food into my face, mostly clean eating though. Not really going to count calories or macros unless I don't see any progress. I've been bulking for a month so far and it's been going well with minimal fat gain, so I'm hoping this continues. If progress starts to stall I'll reassess this.
Dis gunna be a long list, haha.

I probably should've included this in the initial post, but in the interest in not making it even longer here are my "before" stats on the big barbell lifts:
bent over row: 125x3
shoulder press: 65x7

Today the madness did not start in the gym.
I woke up and felt like absolute hell - and then a visitor came that only us ladies get the pleasure of having the company of...
Gym never happens on the first day that visitor comes to town. Will hit it tomorrow.
I took 1/2 scoop of Maximize V2 anyway though, just to assess my tolerance. It did give me an incredible amount of energy, I can't wait to try it out in the gym.

Mixed up a concoction of brown pre-workout goodness this morning - 2 scoops of Hemavol, 1/2 scoop of Maximize V2, and 1 scoop of CL Green Mag. Taste was... interesting lol. Mixed in a full shaker of water, but that is a LOT of flavor for one drink. Not really discernible and just kind of really sweet, hehe.
The Maximize gave me great energy during my workout and no crash. Didn't really move up in weights on most of my exercises today but I've been taking Hemavol for over a month anyway so I wasn't expecting huge strength increases just yet. I've only been taking the Intimidate for about 3 days so by next week I'm assuming I'll be totally killing it. I did get a PR on overhead press though.
WORKOUT: upper body, working sets only, 90sec rest between sets
bb overhead press: 65x5, 75x4, 75x4
underhand lat pulldown: 70x8, 80x8, 90x5
db incline bench press: 30x8, 35x8, 40x5
bb bent over row: 95x8, 95x8, 95x8
assisted dips (weight is lbs of assistance): 50x8, 50x8, 35x5
Had to cut the workout a bit short today because I got to the gym a little late, so I did all compound lifts to make the most efficient use of time.

Oh Hai there Allie! I was under the impression that Intimidate was a T-booster of sorts...? Interesting & sub'd in ...now, tell your 'friend' to kindly leave...

Got super busy at work yesterday so I didn't get a chance to post up my workout.
Yesterday's workout was fair. Took the usual mixture of 2 scoops Hemavol, 1/2 scoop Maximize V2, and 1 scoop Green Mag. I got into the gym late so I was rushed and had to cut my workout short, and also superset my last 2 exercises. Still, glad I got the workout in.
LEGS & ABS (working sets only)
squat: 115x5, 135x3, 140x3 - tried to go for 5 on set 2 and couldn't go past 3 reps. Hopefully this improves next time
db walking lunges: 40x8, 45x8, 50x8
hanging leg raise: 10, 10, 10
leg press: 7th plate x8, 8th plate x8, 9th plate x4
db side bend: 35x10, 10, 10
Maximize V2 is providing good energy so far with little to no crash. I am crashing slightly in the afternoon but that just may be when I always do naturally, just noticing it more because I'm trying to keep track.
Hemavol is keeping my strength up like I like it to. Like I've said previously I was on it for a month or so before this log, so not much has changed but I'm continuing to enjoy it.
Intimidate seems to be improving my sleep slightly, but I can't quite tell yet. As far as strength goes, not seeing much increase other than the amount I was seeing from just the Hemavol, but it's been less than a week. I have confidence that next week will be more impressive.

Rest day today because I woke up late Probably tomorrow as well, as we have a house guest . Maybe Sunday is ghetto living room workout? But I might just wait to do M Tu Th Fr, because I am most likely leaving for Florida Friday night and lifting those days all makes sense to me somehow.

Sucks your workouts have either been rushed or skipped! I hate when I have to miss the gym bc of work... Sometimes the rushed workouts end up being more intense leaving me surprisingly sore the next day.

Today was a rest day but I ended up walking around 5 miles up to prospect park, in and around the park, at the zoo, back home. A lot of it is hilly/inclines so it was more of an active recovery.
Really stoked to be back under the barbell though after the winter break. Never realized I could miss it that much, haha.

Decided to just do the rest day today and do the gym M Tu Th F like I mentioned a few posts back. It just makes way more sense to get in 4 good barbell workouts in the gym, rather than doing dumbbell stuff in my house.
Just took some Intimidate and drinking some Poseidon NT right now. Looking forward to dreamland tonight and heavy lifts tomorrow.

Had huge problems waking up Monday and Tuesday for the gym. I got really mad at myself last night for this. So I decided to bust out the big guns.
Packed my gym bag last night. Mixed up 1/2 scoop of Maximize V2 and left it on my nightstand. This morning when the alarm went off I chugged the Maximize. Hit snooze, went back to sleep for about 15 minutes. Actually got up after that, got dressed, and head out the door. While I was on the subway, I drank my pre-workout concoction of another 1/2 scoop Maximize V2, 2 scoops Hemavol, and 1 scoop Green Mag.
Had one of the best workouts of my life. Score.
bb bench press: 45x10, 65x5, 85x3, 95x1, 105x1, 115x0 (2 failed attempts at lifting this off the power rack bars), 105x2, 95x5
underhand lat pulldown: 70x8, 80x8, 90x8
bb shoulder press: 45x8, 55x8, 65x8
seated row: 60x8, 70x8, 80x5
assisted dip machine (weight is lbs of assistance): 50x8, 50x8, 50x6
db lateral raise: 12x8, 15x8, 15x8
bb bent over row: 95x8, 85x8, 85x8 (was feeling fatigued with 95lbs so I lessened the weight so I could get good form)
db incline bench press: 30x8, 35x8, 35x5
I will definitely be using this Maximize V2 strategy from now on. It's the only way I can get out of bed, so although it's unorthodox, whatever gets me moving, I'll do.
The pump today was probably the best I've ever had. I actually "felt" the pump today as opposed to just seeing it, if that makes any sense.
