DAY 3: LISS CARDIO
This was done after coming back from the holidays... and unfortunately it did not go as well as I had planned was going to try for 6 miles but after the first mile was over I knew that wasn't going to happen. Didn't feel good whatsoever. Took ORIGIN about 30 minutes prior but really didn't notice anything in terms of benefit for cardio. I actually felt more distracted and couldn't get in the zone like I usually do. I attribute this to having taken a few days off and eating like absolute ass the past couple days

DAY 4: LEGS
Origin prior to walking into the gym. 2 scoops. Still tastes great. Like a slightly watered-down Hawaiian Punch... delicious! Focus was DEAD ON today. The mind-muscle connection with this supplement is fantastic and I needed it today because I put my legs through the grind big time. Instead of doing the compound movements first I instead decided to pre-exhaust the legs and saved squats for last. Everything got punished today and we'll see if ORIGIN can help with the DOMS I'm accustomed to after a strenuous leg routine!
WARMUP: 12 minutes on the Stair Master machine
STIFF LEGGED DEADLIFT: 95x12 warmup 135x12 155x10 165x8 95x12
BARBELL LUNGES: 45x10 65x10 85x10 95x8 (reps each leg)
SEATED CALF RAISE: 50x20 60x17 70x15
HAMSTRING CURLS: 55x20 70x15 75x15
LEG EXTENSION: 55x20 60x20 65x20
BARBELL BACK SQUATS: 45x10 135x15 145x12 155x12
LEG PRESS: 215x15 235x15 255x15
COOLDOWN: 10 minute walk at 3.0mph pace with 7.5% elevation on treadmill
By the time I got to the squats my legs were destroyed... and this was the point. To see what fibers I still had left to rip up Pre-exhaustion certainly led to a decrease in the weight I'm used to squatting but it had quite the effect on my goal to push myself beyond my limits. The first 8-10 of each set of squats was generally easy, but towards the higher end of each set my legs began to shake. 135/145/155 is usually a warmup weight for me on the leg days when I actually squat first so this isn't a weight I'm not used to... but try doing squats at the end of your workout and it'll change your mindset for sure. ORIGIN kept me amped up and in the zone the entire time I was in the gym. My concentration began to falter slightly during the leg press since I had been in the gym at that point for almost 2 hours. I almost wanted to dose more halfway through ! Felt great. Probably not going to be able to walk tomorrow... we'll see

NICE STEMS DJ!
Next leg workout I want u to finish with a set of centuries for leg presses. I LOVE finishing a heavy workout with a nice clean set of 100's to engorge the target muscle with BLOOD.
I'm drunk. Happy new year!

Just an FYI in case anyone is wondering... I'm only logging the days I'm actually taking ORIGIN instead of listing every single day out on here. So technically DAY 5 was a rest day but I don't want to clutter the log up with nonsense
DAY 5: ARMS
The day I worked chest during the "blizzard" I actually wanted to do chest/tris but didn't have the time. I didn't feel like doing my back/bis routine just yet because I want my legs to have some more rest so I just decided to throw Tris/Bis together and give it a run. I enjoyed it
STRAIGHT BAR WRIST CURLS: 40x20 60x20,20,15
STRAIGHT BAR REVERSE CURLS: 40x20 50x20,20 40x20 (sets split: 10 reps wrists up, 10 reps wrists down)
HAMMER CURLS: 20s x 15,15,15,15,15
STRAIGHT BAR TRICEP PUSHDOWNS: 40x20 50x20,20 45x20 (sets split: 10 underhand, 10 overhand)
OVERHEAD DB TRICEP EXTENSION: 30s x 20,20,20,20
CLOSE GRIP BARBELL BENCHPRESS: 65x15 85x15 95x15,15
STRAIGHT BAR BICEP CURLS: 30x20,20,20,20
INCLINE DB CURLS: 10s x 20,20,20,20
This log is starting to become the light weight high rep special haha... it'll switch back to what I usually do here next week. This workout was AWESOME. I've never actually specifically trained forearms so that was a first. After the last couple of sets of reverse curls my forearms were about to explode. As I moved on to the tricep pushdowns they felt really easy and I was concerned I wasn't going heavy enough but as I approached the last two sets my triceps were on fire. Walked out of the gym with stiff arms and felt fantastic. Again ORIGIN helped me go the distance here. Although ORIGIN may not necessarily be a "pump" product, my arms were certainly swollen as I left the gym. Concentration was dead on and energy levels were high and never diminished.
I'd like to train back or shoulders tomorrow but I'm sure the wife will make me run instead

I'm still very surprised by the taste of Origin. Not too sweet, not too chalky, and easy to drink. Look forward to taking it as much as I look forward to actually working out!

DAY 6: CHEST
Sorry for the delay! I was so tired yesterday I just came home and passed out This time I took 3 scoops of ORIGIN prior to my workout since I was pretty tired from working the night before and needed a little extra kick to get myself into the workout mood. I had such a high amount of energy that I didn't want to leave the gym after my workout concluded... and I didn't even want to go to bed when I got home but I had to force myself to relax (thanks, benadryl )
DB PULLOVER: 40x10WU 60x10,10,10 felt kinda easy so... 75x10
BARBELL INCLINE PRESS: 45x10WU 95x10 115x10 135x8 115x10
FLAT BENCH BARBELL PRESS: 45x10WU 135x10WU 155x10 175x8 155x9 (fail @ 10) 135x8 (fail @ 9)
HS CHEST PRESS: 100x10,10,10,10
INCLINE DB FLYS: 20s x10,10,10,10
MACHINE FLYS: 100x10,10,10,10
Needless to say my chest is sore as **** today. After the last of the pressing movements it didn't even feel like I was lifting anything during the fly movements which made me kind of upset because I didn't feel like I was working anything. Woke up today realizing that just because you don't get a pump from the workout doesn't mean you aren't activating the fibers lol. ORIGIN did its job again today at giving me great focus, drive, and maintaining my intensity. Rest periods were incredibly short. I had a partner lifting with me today so whenever he finished his set (of the same reps I was doing) we'd switch places. We got out of there just a little over an hour. Quick, effective workout.
Tomorrow I'll be going for a run with the wife and come Monday I have a revamped BACK day that I can't wait to try out.

DAY 7: BACK
I was super psyched to get into the gym today and give this workout a go! Woke up and shot straight out of bed I was that excited! Although I didn't post it here because I didn't take ORIGIN prior, I did run 6 miles yesterday which happened out of the blue so I didn't want to do anything that involved the legs whatsoever today. I took 2.5 scoops of ORIGIN before working out and the workout was epic (at least for me). Focus was strong... perhaps TOO strong My workout partner today remarked on how although he didn't like coming to the gym when it is crowded, he didn't mind the plethora of hot women to look at to which I responded to him with "what hot women?" I didn't notice anyone else in the gym besides myself and the weights I was moving. He blamed it on "marriage goggles." I blamed it on ORIGIN Even right now as I'm typing this I can still feel the energy surging through me. Nice and smooth and I know I'm not in for a crash later!
SUPERSET WARMUP 1: PULLUPS/DIPS: All sets used bodyweight, no rest periods 1) 6P/15D 2) 5P/10D 3) 3P/8D 4) 2P/6D
SUPERSET WARMUP 2: UPRIGHT ROW/REAR DELT FLY/RDF MACHINE: 1) 10x70,10x15,10x100 2) 10x70,10x15,10x100 3) 10x85, 10x15,10x100 4) 10x100,10x15,10x100
STANDING LAT PULLOVER: 40x10,10,10,10 (these were new to me and very enjoyable but my height limited the stretch I could get since the weights would return to the stack before I was fully stretched )
LAT PULLDOWN: 85x10 70x10,10 100x10
BENT OVER ROW: 95x10 75x10,10 85x10
SEATED ROWS - WIDE: 55x10,10,10 70x10
SEATED ROWS - NARROW: 85x10 80x10,10 100x10
ONE-ARM DB ROWS: 30x10,10,10 40x10
RACK PULLS: 135x10 225x10 315x8 275x10,10 185x10
Low weight, volume, stretch and squeeze were all the name of the game today. I miss the "pump" I used to feel taking other preworkouts on a day like this but just because it isn't there doesn't mean nothing happened... I'm sure I'll wake up tomorrow and feel plenty sore. This workout lasted around 1.5hrs today and ORIGIN kept me going and kept me focused the entire freaking time. I'm still in the zone now. Maybe I'll do some abs
