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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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...
10-01-2012, 10:05 AM
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

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.

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.

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

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.

Legs: Leg press 5 sets
Stiff Leg DL 4 sets
PL Hack squat 4 sets
BB Squat w/ chains 4 sets
Sitting calve raises 5 sets, last set was a drop set
Kind of an odd workout for me, I usually always squat first but you know guys had to get their curls in the squat rack.
Pumps: They were there but nothing crazy which is a good thing during leg training imo. I did notice that during certain movements the squeeze was much more noticeable. The last set of calve raises felt really good and got really pumped up.
Endurance: Endurance was good once again...started to get tired when I was squatting. The chains are alittle difficult and really wear me out. Especially after exhausting the muscles before I ever started squatting.
Strength: This is starting to come up. Didn't break any pr's but the weight feels good and for me a heavy set feels more mangeable along with reps coming fairly easy.

So I was thinking about that warming thing and I realized ... when we went out for a charity event (apple picking) at work everybody kept on asking me why I wasn't cold in a t-shirt as a lot people were shivering... lol possible I had some help cuz I am still around 6% body fat and still was warm at around 50 degrees with a breeze in my t-shirt....

just a minor update here, took my ignite friday night, and again i did notice a thermo affect....won't sweat buckets but just doing normal chores around the house i felt clammy (word?) on my back...so it's basically a feeling like your heat in the house is on too high

Shoulder: BB High row 4 sets
BB shoulder press 4 sets
Incline DB rear delt fly 4 sets
Rope pullback superset with standing cable overhead press 3 sets
DB side raises 3 sets
A bit of a different workout for me here, I've been doing a lot of variations of side raises lately to help give the image of a wider upper body so I got away from that this week. I decided to do some extra sets for my rear delts as you can see.
Pump: Not a huge pump that I could feel but was noticeable through my shirt as I was pressing. Again I wish my shoulders looked like this all the time.
Endurance: Ignite is a great product so far for endurance. I think this could really benefit athletes and not just bodybuilder type athletes. I see in some of the other logs that some of the guys play sports and things. I think Ignite is perfect for something like that. Wish I had this stuff back when I played soccer, I feel like I'd be able to play forever and not really get fatigued.
Strength: Slowly creeping up on most of my lifts. But the best part of the strength is it lasts throughout the whole workout. This has to do with the endurance again but it's great to get to the last exercise and still be able to push the weight around and not just do the movement to totally kill of the muscle. The strength lasting the whole workout should be extremely beneficial for lean muscle gains.
Notes: Haven't been eating the best this weekend. I wouldn't say I went overboard because calories are still around where they should be but the choices are more of a cheat than stuff I'd regularly eat.

Yah you are really responding well to the BA and Agmatine I think... other aspects others will respond more to, or less ...everybody's different. I get good endurance but I thinnk your reaction seems more obvious than mine but I respond better to the energy and power aspects but that is an over time tihing with this product as many will find the product gets better with use...

Chest: Incline BB press 5 sets
Decline BB press 4 sets
Incline machine press 4 sets
Peck deck 3 sets
Cable cross overs high setting 3 sets (light weight, high reps)
Tris: Ez bar skull crusher/close grip press 3 sets
Tricep push down backwards 3 sets
Rope pushdowns 5 sets
Changed the workout a bit today. I sort of had too, the gyms getting the equipment repadded so my choice of dumbbell benches were limited or taken.
Pump: The chest pumps felt delayed and hit at the end of the workout but came on strong. The tricep pumps were really strong, the pump today felt solid as a rock, sometimes pumps feel like u can pop the muscle, today felt like if u stuck a pin in the muscle the pin would bend.
Strength: Haven't used a BB for chest in awhile, weight felt solid, I was pretty impressed actually. Overall the strength lasted the whole workout.
Notes: Haven't commented on the energy or endurance. I feel they haven't really changed much since the start. The endurance is by far the best thing of this product so far.

Back: T Bar Rows 5 sets
BB Row 5 sets
Lat Pulldown 4 sets
Deadlift 4 sets
Bis: Alt DB Curl 3 sets
DB hammer curl 3 sets
Straight bar cable preacher curl 3 sets
Worked out with a buddy of mine, so I didn't move as quickly as I wanted during the back workout, felt like I wanted to get more volume. The time just wouldn't allow it. I had to rush through the bicep workout:
Pump: Once again from the t bar and bb row my lower back already had a strong pump going into the deadlifts. I also think because of how quickly I moved through my bicep workout that my biceps blew up. The pump came on quickly and lasted through the cardio of the workout.
Strength: Strength was up or atleast felt increased. I finally was able to t bar row 5 plates which I was happy about, only got 4 or 5 reps but considering I started t bar rowing at the beginning of this log so I'm still learning the overall movement. Also felt the lat pulldown weight was better than usual. Didn't set any records but the weight was moving and the squeeze was really good.
After destroying my lower back, I'm finding cardio is tough with the back pump. Maybe I'm just not a very good runner or am still learning how to run well....the pump in the back is so strong makes it diffcult.
I take my powder to work with me in a plastic test tube I received samples in awhile ago. Anyway while I was filling them last night I noticed I don't have much Ignite left....just a heads up to anyone following, I think I can get through the rest of this week.
10-10-2012, 12:25 PM
Yah the tub is not bottomless unfortunately .... that's ok I have 3 more tubs coming late this week...right now I am using the orgininal which I have plenty of as well so I will be switching back and forth...
