    Thanks, but 540 isn't even my opener when I compete. I should be destroying that kind of weight on any given day.

  5. A decent day in the gym. Just one scoop of Speed X3 and I was good to go. I did a lower weight/higher rep upper day. I began with overhead presses; I ended up hitting 205 for 11 strict reps (might be PR). Afterwards, I did a few sets of face pulls for scapular retraction. I used an EliteFTS average band for some tricep and ab work.

    All in all, it was a good day. Speed X3 got me through all the high rep stuff easily.

    Face pulls are best done as a prehab movement with light weight and full scapular retraction. The rope attachment on the tricep pressdown machine works well. For heavier face pulls I use the straight bar on the lat pulldown machine while leaning back to a 30degree (or so) angle. Since I began incorporating them into my training I have noticed a definite difference in upper back tightness during heavy bench presses. I can keep my shoulders back and hold my arch much better. Rows help, too, without a doubt but face pulls are awesome.

  9. Life is crazy sometimes. I haven't had the time to get here to post, but, I assure you, Speed X3 is still amazing.

    On Friday, I visited a local powerlifting gym to pull deads. It's the first time I hit over 600 since February. I worked up to a single of 605 and it went up faster than I had expected. Here's a vid from one of the guys in the gym:



    I did a variation of barbell rows with bands and heavy strict shrugs (up to 455) after pulling. A scoop and a half of Speed X3 did its job!

    I'm thinking of opening with 560 or so then 610-615 for my 2nd attempt at my next meet. Can't wait!

  15. Yesterday's upper day went well. For my heavy sets of bench, I hit:

    365 x 1
    405 x 1
    405 x 4
    405 x 3
    425 x 2

    Strict form (touch and go), wrist wraps only. I didn't feel 100% so I know I have more in me.

    I was running on 1 heaping scoop of Speed X3. Still loving this stuff.

  16. I trained Wednesday and Friday last week but didn't get a chance to post anything.

    Wednesday was a prehab/rehab day so all I did was band work for upper body. It really cuts down on muscle and joint soreness after a heavy training session the day before. Just one scoop of Speed X3 did the trick.

    Friday was kind of an off day for me. I rarely get headaches but I couldn't shake one all afternoon for some reason. In the past if I had a headache the combination of the caffeine from a PWO and increased blood flow once I began training got rid of it. Friday was rough. I tried pulling deads and only got through 4 sets of 3 @ 455 on speed pulls. I finished with sets of shrugs and that's all. After training I popped some Ibuprofen and felt fine with an hour. Felt great through the rest of the night, especially when we won our football game 33-0 (we're out-scoring our opponents 205-17 in 7 games so far this season).

    It looks as if I'm going to run out of Speed X3 before my meet on the 27th. I was thinking I may have to ration it so I have a couple scoops for the meet. Instead, I'll order a couple tubs - that's a great price for something so effective.

  17. You are in Florida so sweat is just an everyday thing but did you notice more from Speed? I'm sweating a lot more during my workouts with Speed. I'm from Florida and out here a sauna is he only place you sweat. I love a good sweat.

    I don't notice an increase in sweating at all. Being about 255-260 I sweat more than most anyway - gotta love FL humidity...

  19. Yesterday's training session went better than expected. I trained upper body and had planned on going to 405 and doing reps on bench. I hit 405 for a very easy single so I decided to go up to 425 just for fun. I ended up hitting 425 for 3 reps (missed the 4th). Here's the vid:



    And yes, that is a PR. I've never benched 425 for more than 2 reps.

    I dropped to 405 and got 4 more after this. I finished with some face pulls and tricep extentions.

    All it took was a scoop and a half of Speed X3. I felt great from start to finish. I didn't expect to because I could not sleep on Sunday night to save my life for some reason. With a good night's rest I may be able to get more. We'll see...


    As quick side note: I weighed 258.4lbs prior to training yesterday with shoes and gym clothes.

  22. Friday's training session was another good one. No PRs or crazy stuff going on. I just felt 'on' the whole time in the gym - and all I had was one scoop of Speed X3!. I ended up working up to my projected deadlift opener for the meet at the end of the month (565) and pulled it with ease twice. I did a few sets of heavy shrugs and some GHRs to finish the day. I plan on working up to what I think may be my 2nd attempts for bench and dead next week, then call it quits on anything above 35-40% until the meet.

  27. Another great day with Speed X3!

    I went to the gym today with the intentions of figuring out my 2nd attempt on bench for my meet. I did a meet-style warm-up and 'opened' with 400; it was easy. I loaded 435 on the bar (and because I was using heavy collars I actually thought I loaded 430 but it ended up 5lbs heavier) and paused it without a problem. I decided to go for it and loaded the bar with 455. I did not expect the outcome ----- I hit it with some in the tank! 455 is a PR and since it was paused it was a huge PR for me. One of the guys I train got on video; I'll post it when he has it uploaded.

  30. I'm peaking at the right time on my program. I just hope things go this well the day of the meet.

    One quick side note...
    I went out a bought extra glucosamine and fish oil today after training. I also recently began taking cissus. I've pushed my joints through hell the past few weeks and they're letting me know how bad they hate me for it. My wrists and elbows kill me during my warm-up set on bench (work sets feel much better) and my knees and ankles give me fits in the mornings. The pain is really starting to really suck. I need my joints to feel 100% on meet day...
