  1. STEPHENGARCIA AND FINAFLEX IGNITE 2


    Thanks Finaflex and Dreamweaver for allowing me to log their new Ignite 2. What mainly drew me to this product was that it has agmatine. I have never used a preworkout with agmatine before and I have heard great stories of the skin ripping pumps it delivers.

    I am doing another log (yes both reps are okay with it) on recoverpro and IF lean bulking so most of my foods or other daily thoughts will be on there if you want to subscribe I'd love to have you. On this thread it will mainly be the cut and dry lifts, pumps and my feelings centered on how I performed in the gym.

    I will edit some pics in from my phone once I am in better wifi range.

    Today I received 1 tub of Ignite 2 Wild Watermelon and an XL Finaflex Freak shirt. Both products look badass bros, I am wearing the shirt right now and it fits quite well but still is comfortable enough for added room to grow.

    Upon opening I noticed the power has little clumps in it and the scoop for it is quite original. Thought that was pretty cool, it's the little things lol. When I shook 1 scoop in 10 ounces of whatever all those clumps went away and it mixed well. I guess I am just so used to Condense that when the water actually changed color it felt weird in a way. Taste was good 8/10 but I was driving and didn't really savor it so that might go up or down. It isn't sour but it made my jaw clench as if I had just eaten something sour (if that makes sense).

    I went into the gym today after only sleeping for 3 hours and being in class from 9-1130 am, but Ignite filled the ticket. I was kinda debating on taking a nap or just going to the gym and I am really glad Ignite came just in time. It didn't "hit me like a brick wall" it eased my energy levels up higher and higher and kept going well into my 2 or 3 exercise then stayed there. I was spotting my friend on skull crushers and with a few spots my biceps felt lit. It was amazing.

    I did triceps and a little bit of back touch up today but it feels like I hit chest and bis too. I've never had these feeling and some of my friends tell me thats what hemavol feels like. I am glad I listened and researched the ingredient profile and had a chance to hop on this great opportunity.

    this is copy pasta from my other log but myFIRST work out on Ignite 2.

    Decline Ez Bar Skullcrushers
    70 lb x12
    70 lb x12
    70 lb x14
    70 lb x14

    Seated DB Over Head Extension Super Set with Bench Dips
    90 lb x12 + 12 dips
    75 lb x12 + 8 dips (2 second hold at the bottom)
    75 lb x12 + 10 dips (same thing)
    75 lb x10 (failure) + 8 dips (got sloppy around 6)

    Cable Pressdowns Drop Set Method
    110 lb x12 + 45 lb x12
    150 lb (maxed) x12 + 70 lb x10
    150 lb x12 + 70 lbs x8

    Isolateral Row (held squeeze for around a count and a half and only 1 arm at a time, perfect form)
    1 pps x12
    55 lb ps x14
    55 lb ps x15

    Underhand Low Row with Lat Pull Down Bar (deep arch and slow release of tension makes this feel amazing)
    80 lb x12
    110 lb x12
    110 lb x12

    I have a pic of my bicep after this and I thought it looked pretty darn good for not targetting them directly.
    Also I am wearing the freak shirt and whats better than that?!

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

  7. Fasted leg training is always tricky, but that's what went down yesterday.
    Couple scoops recoverpro then waited til I was almost in the parking lot to drink my ignite 2. (Reasoning was I wanted the energy to peak midway)

    Got there and started hitting some squats, my knees felt like crap so after a set of
    135x10 I stretched for like 3 minutes.

    Tried it out again
    135x10 way better

    For reals (stopped a couple degrees under parallel, didn't feel like going ass to the grass and I didn't notice a huge difference in contraction)
    185x12
    225x10
    225x10
    135x16
    135x12

    Dead and about to puke from the slight pause on the bottom I was using

    Leg Extensions
    90x20
    90x20 started cramping
    70x16
    50x20

    Leg press (feet all the way up and drove with my ankles, accenting the motion by keeping my toes off the platform.)
    1 pps x20
    3 pps x20

    Partner started throwing up like a noob so we had to go, I didn't mind I could have left after those leg extensions and been perfectly fine. Great workout and great pump. It turns out I did time that ignite right for what I wanted to do that day. Baus mode

  8. I remember I trough up the first couple times after a work out...



    Did he make it to the bathroom?

  10. Read up on the Smolov Jr program and I decided to give it a go and see what it was all about.

    First bench day is 6 sets of 6 at 70% of 1MR. Which came out to be like 205 for me, rounded down to the nearest applicable weight.

    Warm up with bar, then 135.

    205 x6
    205 x6
    205 x6
    205 x6
    205 x6
    205 x7 (one more so I could reach failure)

    Pretty good rep/set range for the weight. Was impressed on how good it felt and how easy it was to control the weight. Well thought out plan indeed.

    I didn't do deadlifts on back day and if I miss deads I get anxious so I had to get em in.

    8 sets of 4 at 85% 1 MR

    315 x4
    315 x4
    315 x4
    315 x4
    315 x4
    315 x4
    315 x4
    315 x4

    My grip held strong and my form was money, felt like barfing when I set down the 6th set, controlled my breathing and the next two sets were cake.

    Got an overall good workout, lifting heavy and controlled for 14 sets.

    Focus and pump was great usual, and side note when a little bit of the ignite came up it actually didn't taste too bad. Gross to think about but we've all been there lol







    mod edit: Moved. Put logs in the log section.

  13. Smolov Jr Second Day
    7 sets of 5 at 75%

    My insomnia was acting up, I didnt go to sleep til 7 am last night and I didn't wake up til like 4 pm. Worst time to go to the gym here so I waited til 630 ish. Have to say my stomach was pretty darn empty when I took my scoop of ignite. Took 2 scoops Lemon RecoverPro for obvious reasons. The flavor of ignite has grown on me, which is the opposite of what I expected honestly.

    some rotator cuff warm ups and jumped right to it
    225x5
    225x5
    225x5
    225x5
    225x5
    225x5
    225x5

    again, impressed by how effective the rep range was. After I racked my last press I felt drained yet throughout the workout I was in complete control of form.
    also equally impressed by how the energy from ignite just keeps on going til peak and levels out. Doesnt leave you high and dry with a crash which is something I appreciate a ton.

    Went to incline flyes mixed with incline db press
    40's x20 (just flyes)
    40's x15 flyes + 40's x7 press with rotation
    35's x15 flyes + 35's x8 press with rotation

    Seated Cable Chest Flyes
    70 x15
    70 x15
    70 x14

    Hammer Strength Incline Press
    1 pps x12
    2 pps x12
    70 lbs pps x 10 (failed)

    pic will be uploaded soon ghey bois

    (Still not a deep enough contraction)
    90 lbs x10 + 90 lbs x10
    90 lbs x10 + 90 lbs x10 (so pumped)
    90 lbs x8 + 90 lbs x6

    Bis were pumped off this alone

    Switched to suicide grip
    135 lbs x12

    1 pps x16 (one arm at a time)
    1 pps + 25 x 12
    1 pps x20
    1 pps x16 (both arms)
    1 pps x16 (1 arm 4 reps then hold contraction while doing other arm 4 reps.)

    DB 1 Arm Rows (with an incline bench) squared up stance, not staggered. Keeps your spine in line and I feel a stronger contraction personally.
    35 lb x12
    35 lb x12
    35 lb x12
    35 lb x12

    Low Cable Rows (lean back when contracting to hit lower lats)

    Thanks man, I wish I went to a gym that people weren't just worried about weights. I get the most bizarre looks for doing weights that the noobies are hitting.
    This forum keeps me motivated to not let it get to me and keep going for quality!

    Stephen... I've been lifting light for years now and I'm not huge by any means, but I'm big enough that people think I should be lifting more, especially the LiL teenage New-B's that are doing curls with like 70Lb dumbbells, well they call them curls, I call them full-body upper cuts, while I sit there calmly on a bench with my 25-35Lb dumbbells making my biceps scream all the way down to the Fuggin Bone!!! I see them looking at me and I see their little smirkish grins, like they are thinking "Hahahhaha, I'm lifting more than this guy, Hahahaha!" Oh well, I like the way I look better than the way they look and I'm a lot less likely to get injured or experience joint pains, etc. So to all you guys who like to lift the entire gym, more power to ya!
