After a scoop and a half of Speed X3 I felt muuuuch better. I ended up doing some light/rep upper stuff. I worked up to a relatively easy set of 205x10 on strict standing overhead presses. I blasted the crap out of my shoulders (front and rear) with various other exercises. I finished with sets of skull crushers and cable pressdowns to kill the triceps.

    After my warm-up sets and Speed X3 kicked in I felt like a million bucks. I'm really loving the effects of Speed X3 - still no crash and still good clean energy and focus.
    So awesome to keep hearing that everyone is getting good workouts with the SX3

  2. Another good day with Speed X3.

    I usually don't train on Thursdays but a schedule conflict forced me to do so today. I trained heavy bench and did OK. I worked up to a raw 425 and locked it out with no issues. I dropped back down to 405 and attepmted to do a quick 3x3. I hit the first 2 sets of 3, but just missed the third rep on the last set. I did some accessory work afterwards and my triceps felt like they were on fire. Its nice to be home and resting.

    Dead day tomorrow...

    I felt lost yesterday because I should have been in the gym but couldn't. It felt great to be there today. I hope it doesn't affect my dead day tomorrow. I should be fine... I've got Speed X3 on my side.

  5. Friday's training session was difficult. I beat myself up on Thursday and I felt it on dead day. I remained focused from the Speed X3 but my body was not in the mood to lift like I needed to. I went up to a set of 540 for 2 reps and I'm glad that's all the weight I had to do. It felt nice to rest and recuperate a little this weekend.

  6. The body needs time to recover sometimes. One step back,two steps forward. 540x2 is stout for being an off day Ace!!

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

  10. 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.

    Thank for the tip!

  14. 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!

  20. 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.

  21. 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.

  22. 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...

  24. 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.
