  1. Monday: Chest/Tris

    Chest: Flat DB Press 5 sets
    Incline DB Press 4 sets
    Incline BB press 2 sets
    Cable Crossover High setting 3 sets
    Cable Crossover Low setting 2 sets
    Cable Flys 3 sets

    Tris: Close Grip weighted Dips 3 sets
    Overhead extension 3 sets
    Underhand cable pulldown 3 sets
    V Bar pushdown 4 sets

    Energy: Was tired today, eyes felt heavy leaving work. Wasn't really motivated for the workout.

    Endurance: Endurance was fine and felt pretty good the whole workout even without the energy boost.

    Pump: Was really solid on chest. My chest blew up quickly and stayed pretty pumped all the way through the cardio session.

    Strength: Strength was good. Like I said I wasn't totally amp'd up for the workout but the weights I was using didn't go down at all. Felt pretty good in that department and hopefully continues to imrpove. If the strength and endurance remain high or increase this stuff could lend some nice results.

    Note: Not sure if it's because of the Ignite but I was starving all day yesterday. I'd eat a meal and be hungry again right after. I will have to track this and see if it continues or if it was just a one time thing.

    Could be the aminosterone, hunger spells anabolism.... too bad you don't get the stim as much but as you can see the product works for physical energy despite mental stim. You wil always get good workouts ...

    the lack of energy hasn't had any real effect on the workouts themselves....but i do like to feel energized and excited to be at the gym, however the strength and keeping the strength through the entire workout has be thinking the next few weeks could be good for lean gains

    Indeed you are responding well to the most important aspect of the product. The energy is just the icing on the cake.

  7. Tuesday: Back/Bis

    Back: T-Bar Rows 5 sets
    BB Row 5 sets
    Lat Pull down 4 sets
    Deadlifts 4 sets

    Bi: DB Curl 4 sets
    Incline DB hammer curl 3 sets
    Cable Rope curls 4 sets

    Energy: I used a little more than 1 scoop today, it was more like 1.25 scoops. The energy wasn't crazy crazy but it seemed to hit me better than 1 scoop alone. I was feeling a bit sick before I left work, sore throat and stuff but Ignite picked me up to get in a good workout which was nice.

    Pump: Not sure if it was the little bit of extra Ignite but the pumps hit super fast today. My lower back even had a pump from the T-Bar rows, it was pretty intense but it's a good pump not anything thats hampering my workout. Biceps also blew up after only a few sets of curls and stayed pumped up throughout the whole cario session.

    Endurance/Strength: Not sure whats happening here, I feel fresh throughout the workout and even on weights I'm used to I'm able to push out a few reps. Ususally on a weight when I fail at 7 I was able to get 9 or 10 reps while still keeping form.

    Note: Have a sore throat this morning and hopefully I can grab it before I get a full blown cold.

  8. Yah good responses I'd say...

    i hope so, i could use some crea trona for sure

  10. Wednesday: Cardio

    I felt like crap all day and was iffy to go to the gym. I decided to go and do some light cardio to see if I could get the sweat going to sweat out the sickness. So I did do 30minutes of cardio but on the elliptical at a moderate pace, nothing fancy.

    I must say I still felt pretty good in the endurance department, even though my body felt blah the cardio was a breeze. This might be the best thing so far....even when your body is mush and lifeless Ignite will still allow you to get in a workout. I'm astonished about that


    Not sure if I'm trying to do legs while feeling like this though, we'll see how I feel by the end of the day.

  11. Yah it's an extreme different maker for sure, try this experiment... early am workout with ignite2 then try one without it a couple days later... you'll see what I am talking about.

    i train at night because of my job....however i may try that on saturday mornings when i train bright and early

  13. I have to apologize, I've been sick the last few days.....I don't accept logging opportunities unless I know I can be around for the whole thing. However this is not something I expected. First was just a sore throat, then my body felt like mush, this morning I woke up with what felt like 15 lbs of flem stuck in my sinuses. I feel alittle better tonight but I've been sweating for 3 days now.

    I will hopefully get to the gym tomorrow morning, I could really use a nice session in the steam room as well to clear this crap out of my body.

    I have kept taking the Ignite, Thursday when my body felt like crap, and this is totally bro science, I took it and took a hot steam bath and then got a massage. I was hoping the ingredients in Ignite helped with recovery for my muscles since I had to take unexpected days off.

  14. Saturday: Shoulders

    Shoulders: High row: 5 sets
    Shoulder press: 4 sets
    Incline db rear delt fly: 4 sets
    DB side raises: 3 sets
    Cable side raises: 3 sets
    Cable rear delt row: 3 sets

    Energy: Usually feel a bit foggy on Saturday mornings and that's why I've been doing high rows before presses. Today I woke up feeling ok but I felt a lot better after I drank the Ignite and once I got to the gym. I'm still sick but my energy levels were really good at the gym. It was clean energy nothing crazy (I wasn't bouncing around) but I didn't feel tired or foggy.

    Endurance: Took a small hit today. Not a huge drop off and I think it was mostly having congestion in my chest. I had to take some longer breaks between sets than usually to get my breath back. But, I will add that I did extra work with the cable row and added 5 minutes to my normal cardio time. So I believe an endurance problems I was having was purely being congested, causing breathing to be a bit more difficult.

    Pump: Again from being sick I wasn't eating properly and looked flat when I first got to the gym. Once I started touching weight my shoulders did blow up. Not quite where they were last week but a lot better than I looked when I first walked into the gym.

    Strength: It was on par, nothing special but no drop off either.

  15. breathing is everything with lifting and endurance, I can't count how many times I got an extra rep or 2 from a good deep breath and good breathing just gives me the extra power when dealing with heavy sets...

  16. Starting to feel a bit better....no more sweating, a lot less congestion but i'm stuffed up a bit.....trying to everything in my power to get past this nonsense.....i should be good to go at the gym today though

    Yah that first workout back really helps you break free of the grip...

  18. Monday: Chest/Tris

    Chest: Incline DB Press 4 sets
    Flat DB press 3 sets
    HS Chest Press Set at Incline 3 sets
    Pec Deck 3 sets last set was drop set
    Fly machine extra low seat 3 sets

    Tris: Close grip press 3 sets
    Overhead extension 3 sets
    Pushdown machine sitting backwards 3 sets
    V bar extension 2 sets

    Energy: Used a bit more than 1 scoop as I will continue to do, it's not 1.5 scoops more like 1.25 if that. The energy is better but not bouncing off walls. After being sick I sort of needed a pick me up before the gym. It did it's job here.

    Endurance: Still not where I wanted to be with the congestion in my head. Sometimes it's non existent other times I"m all stuffed up. So again it's more a breathing thing than anything. The muscle endurance in this product has clearly shown it's up to par and even then some compared to other pre workouts.

    Pump: Pump in the chest took some time to kick in but was solid overall. Went alittle heavier on triceps and didn't get the same pump in them but not a huge deal. Ignite is right next to other pump products that I've experienced recently so far.

    Strength: This is where the product shined today. The weights kept going up, not really trying either, sort of just happened. A few times I couldn't breath and didn't think the workout was going to go well. But I'd grab weights and they felt lighter than I expected.

    Note: Being sick didn't really help.....however a few times over the weekend I had some short bursts of increased libido out of the blue. Which is a good sign, hopefully as the sickness goes away I'll notice a bit more.

  19. Things seem to be going very well despite illness...

  20. Tuesday: Back/Bis

    Back: T bar row 4 sets
    BB row 4 sets
    Lat pulldown 5 sets
    Standing rope rows 3 sets
    Deadlifts 3 sets

    Bi: DB Curls 5 sets
    EZ bar preacher curls 4 sets
    Cable Rope Curls 3 sets

    Energy: More than 1 scoop again but not much energy. Nothing too new here. Started off a bit slow will get to that later.

    Endurance: Still top notch when it comes to lifitng. Almost like a minute refreshes the muscle back to normal.

    Strength: This was a bit odd to me....I've been t bar rowing the last few weeks last week I hit 4 wheels last week for 8 reps, I wanted to atleast get 5 wheels for 6 this week. But at 4 wheels this week it felt heavy and I only got 7, I didn't try 5 wheels. However the barbell rows I was able to match last weeks weight and up the reps along with having much better form I thought than last week. The lat work also felt easier than normal and I think I was getting an extra rep or two out of similar weight from before. Almost like I got stronger as the workout went on.

    Pumps: WOW! My back was pumped esepecially my lower back. After the Tbar rows and and BB rows my lower back already felt like I deadlifted it was crazy pumped. Lat pulldowns also got my lats pumped quickly, I was really able to feel the squeeze on this day. The only downside to all of this is when it came to DL's I couldn't stand doing more than the 3 sets. Also on the treadmill while running I wasn't able to run for the full time because my lower back felt like a balloon. Also noticed during the BB rows that my forearms were veiny as could be and my forearm muscles were bulging like crazy but no pump really developed in them.

  21. i also forgot to add...my hunger has become constant everyday the last 3 or so days....its like i can't eat enough to be satisfied

  23. Wednesday: Supposed to cardio


    My father asked me to help with something around the house. So of course I had to help him, he wanted to watch the Yankees last game of the season. So I drank my Ignite and went over to his house to help, and even though it wasn't nearly a cardio or lifting session but I was still active.

    Notes: I don't really notice it during training sessions as I plan sweating. But I noticed a huge increase in body heat, I was sweating even when I wasn't really doing much. Also when I was about to shower I noticed some increased vascularity in my upper chest. Never really noticed this before.

  24. Wow I wonder ... like in the gym I may not notice...
