    DAY 11: BACK

    Today was probably the best day I've had in the gym that I can remember for a long time. Threw two scoops of Origin into my shaker cup as soon as I woke up and I was out the door. Back days are usually my longest days in the gym and I was looking forward to Origin's long lasting energy to help keep me motivated to get through it all.

    WARMUP: PULLUPS/DIP SUPERSET: BW (230lbs) for all sets 6PU/15D, 5PU/12D(+2), 4PU(+1)/12D(+4), 3PU(+1)/8D(+2) so in the later sets I was actually increasing my reps from last time which gave me a nice confidence boost for the rest of my workout. Pullups are by far one of my worst performed exercises and I wish I had the strength to crank out more reps. Mine are all done deadhang, squeezing my lats as hard as I can at the top and slowing myself down for the negative... I'm sure if I kipped and got nasty with my form I could get more reps in but at what cost?

    STANDING CABLE LAT PULLOVER: 40x12WU 42.5x10,10,10,10 I absolutely love these they definitely hit my lats in a way that other exercises haven't

    LAT PULLDOWN: 70x12WU 100x10,10,10 120x10 70x15

    BENT OVER ROW: 85x10,10,10,10

    WIDE GRIP SEATED ROW: 70x10,10 75x10 85x10

    CLOSE GRIP SEATED ROW: 100x10,10,10 110x10

    ONE ARM DB ROW: 35x10,10,10 45x10

    RACK PULLS: 135x15 225x10,10 wanted to do more of these but had to leave to get ready for work!

    Felt ****ing awesome today! Chest is sore from yesterday and I know that my back will be sore in the morning when I wake up! ORIGIN has definitely helped keep the DOMS at bay though... certainly sore for less time than usual. Most of the time I'll get DOMS (way worse in the legs than any other muscle groups) for ~2 days but since the introduction of ORIGIN I notice DOMS lasting usually no more than a day.

    Cardio will be coming up in the next couple of days. The wife thinks its time for us to try running 4x/week now and Thursday will be our "distance day" aiming for 7 miles. I'm looking forward to it as I feel my legs are starting to become acclimated to all of this running and now I'm actually looking forward to it!

    I know, right? Never thought I'd hear myself say that. Maybe its not so much the running aspect I'm looking forward to, but more so the attempt at breaking a distance record that becomes so appealing for me. Like going into the gym and telling myself that today I'll break a squat record... that same mentality is applied to my running. OK last week I did 6, let's go for 7!

    About to walk out the door for the 7 mile attempt! Can't wait to get this over with because tomorrow is arms day and I'm ready for some Origin!

    Thanks sawa! Yesterday was a speed day did 3 miles at a 6.5mph pace. Felt good everywhere except my breathing at the end. Throat felt like it was swelling up almost like an exercise induced asthma attack ! Hopefully as I build endurance that feeling goes away! Can't wait for it to warm up outside I'm ready to hit the pavement.

    I found that sprint intervals of 1 minute following a long run helped improve my endurance

    No, 60/60 (assuming that's seconds on /off)

    Example when I was training my 1.5 for CGA and police exams...

    I would run my 1.5 as fast as possible 10-11 mins @8.3-9mph.. Then I would do

    1 minute rest
    1 minute sprint @9mph
    1 minute rest
    1 minute sprint @9.1... So on to the 25-30 minute mark.. I used to do that shti 4-5 times a week for 3-4 years! Then my hip flexors and glutes rebelled and I can only run on an incline of 8 or higher hahah

    It will absolutely help man.. I cant believe the cardio shape I was in then compared to now.. I just physically can't do it once I stopped I gained muscle mass tho finally lol.

    60/120 would bs great for legit HIIT and body comp and mild endurance but 60/60 is great after a long run for added endurance

    Haha its all good guys ched definitely has a good idea that I would love to try. I used to do HIIT for 3x a week (30on/90off) for 10 cycles and I absolutely loved it. I've been trying to sneak that in every once in awhile but I may give ched's idea a try.

    Today was a great success though!

    No Origin taken for my run today. Just posting for motivational purposes! Tomorrow is arm day and I'm excited for it because my wife wants to do it with me as well! She's never joined me for a lifting session so this'll be interesting!

    Thanks FU. You know I'm a preworkout junkie ! I feel like in the supplement world the most heavily saturated/highly variable type of supplement is most definitely the preworkout and I love trying them all and seeing how different each and every one is. The way you feel on one can vary greatly to another... its nuts. I love it!

    Thanks for the recommendations bro I will definitely have to give them a shot later down the road since I have not tried any of the ones you mentioned... note even samples!

    Glad I can give you some motivation! Your log does the same for me as well although I need to post in there more often :\!

    My GF and I go at the same time, but we usually split off and do our own thing. Every once in a while I critique her form and she takes it all in.

    She works out with a trainer once a week and she also critiques my form based on what she learned. Like a jackass, sometimes I just shake my head and go.....uh huh, uh huh, uh huh.....then she accuses me of never listening to her and becomes miffed !!!!

    For us, it's just best to go in together and meet at the end of workout. Like a trooper, she works out as hard as I do and stays just as long.

    DAY 12 : ARMS

    Holy hell what a day in the gym today. I'm starting to notice a subtle shift in how I perceive myself going through each workout now when I'm in the gym. They are starting to become easier. Now I don't mean easier in the sense that I'm barely lifting any weight and not really trying to do much of anything... quite the contrary. The weights are moving up (on some exercises I find myself lifting much more than I anticipated) and my form is staying near-perfect... but I'm just geared up and ready to go almost immediately after completing a set. Or after I've done one exercise instead of taking my leisurely stroll to the water fountain I'm ready to jump onto the next thing RIGHT AWAY. I literally have to force myself out of the gym or I'd just keep going and going and going... so not only has ORIGIN added endurance elements with EACH workout, but the strive and motivation seems to be increasing every time I take it and head to the gym. I'm started to get more fired up each time I walk out the door and I'm ready to make the weights my bitch! Just an interesting note

    2 scoops as usual. Today's plan of attack was to pick weights that hit a rep-range from 8-12 (with the exception of a few exercises).

    WRIST CURLS: 40x20WU 60x12 70x12 80x12 40x20

    REVERSE CURLS: 20x20WU 40x20,20 50x20,20 (sets split: 10 wrists up, 10 wrists down)

    HAMMER CURL: 25x15,15,15,15,15 (wt. ea. hand... looking to move up next time)

    TRICEP PUSHDOWN: 40x20WU 45x20 50x20 55x20 45x20 (sets split: 10 underhand, 10 overhand)

    SKULLCRUSHERS: 35x15WU 50x15,15

    TRICEP DIPS: BWx15 +10x12,12,10

    STRAIGHT BAR CURL: 60x10 70x10,9 60x8 40x10

    PREACHER CURL: 25x10,10 35x10,10

    Workout felt great. Each associated body part during the routine felt engorged and enormous. There was a nice pump and a good burn throughout the whole workout... next time I think I will be aiming for heavy weights and low reps around 6-8reps. I know I can crank out much heavier weight on the dips, skullcrushers, and pushdowns... looking forward to see how Origin will help me with that

    Yeah, I think you give the most comprehensive review on PWOs and I always read your reviews even though I don't use it. Looks like there are more on the way with lot of interest so I will be looking out for your review on those as well. Good information to have when I am ready to take a plunge.

The weights are moving up (on some exercises I find myself lifting much more than I anticipated) and my form is staying near-perfect... but I'm just geared up and ready to go almost immediately after completing a set. Or after I've done one exercise instead of taking my leisurely stroll to the water fountain I'm ready to jump onto the next thing RIGHT AWAY. I literally have to force myself out of the gym or I'd just keep going and going and going... so not only has ORIGIN added endurance elements with EACH workout, but the strive and motivation seems to be increasing every time I take it and head to the gym. I'm started to get more fired up each time I walk out the door and I'm ready to make the weights my bitch! Just an interesting note

    2 scoops as usual. Today's plan of attack was to pick weights that hit a rep-range from 8-12 (with the exception of a few exercises).

    WRIST CURLS: 40x20WU 60x12 70x12 80x12 40x20

    REVERSE CURLS: 20x20WU 40x20,20 50x20,20 (sets split: 10 wrists up, 10 wrists down)

    HAMMER CURL: 25x15,15,15,15,15 (wt. ea. hand... looking to move up next time)

    TRICEP PUSHDOWN: 40x20WU 45x20 50x20 55x20 45x20 (sets split: 10 underhand, 10 overhand)

    SKULLCRUSHERS: 35x15WU 50x15,15

    TRICEP DIPS: BWx15 +10x12,12,10

    STRAIGHT BAR CURL: 60x10 70x10,9 60x8 40x10

    PREACHER CURL: 25x10,10 35x10,10

    Workout felt great. Each associated body part during the routine felt engorged and enormous. There was a nice pump and a good burn throughout the whole workout... next time I think I will be aiming for heavy weights and low reps around 6-8reps. I know I can crank out much heavier weight on the dips, skullcrushers, and pushdowns... looking forward to see how Origin will help me with that

    DJ
    Great workout !

    For us, it's just best to go in together and meet at the end of workout. Like a trooper, she works out as hard as I do and stays just as long.
    With regards to my "workout together" experiment... it was more or less of a success. My wife is very stubborn and I told her prior to even going to the gym that I was going to talk to her like I talk to all my other workout buddies. I would watch her form and critique her every once in awhile and I think eventually she did what you do... did the whole head shaking yes and agreeing when I knew it was going in one ear and out the other lol. She told me she really didn't it like it because there was "too much standing around." I was like yea well yea when there are 3 of us rotating in and out of course its going to take awhile (my workout partner was with us as well). At the end she didn't feel like she had accomplished anything because she didn't break a sweat. I tried to explain doing anaerobic resistance work was way different than us running on the treadmill but that she definitely got a workout in... we'll see how sore she feels tomorrow! I loved having her there with me though but she's usually on the cardio equipment and you could tell she had that "I feel awkward standing here around the boys/weights" while I was trying to coach her. She also told me I was too serious... but I said hey when I'm there I get in my zone and thats just how it is!

    Now, we just nod to each other as we pass. Hahaha. The trainer does a good job I have to admit. Her waist has gotten so tiny after she started doing the TRX workout.

    DAY 13: SHOULDERS

    Well after the car ordeal I was good to go. I had already mixed up my two scoops of ORIGIN in a shaker cup and left it in the cupholder of my car until it was time to take it. Once the dealership let me off I slammed it down and headed straight for the gym!

    UPRIGHT ROW/REAR DELT FLY/REAR DELT FLY MACHINE SUPERSET: 4 rounds, 10 reps a set, minimal to no rest...
    R1: UR 85x10 RDF 20x10 RDFM 115x10
    R2: UR 100x10 RDF 20x10 RDFM 120x10
    R3: UR 100x10 RDF 20x10 RDFM 125x10
    R4: UR 105x10 RDF 20x10 RDFM 130x10

    Now that the blood is pumping... time to workout

    DB SHRUG: 95x8 90x10 80x12 75x15 60x15 50x16 40x20 (wt. ea. hand)

    RAISES: SCAPTION 20x10 LATERAL 15x10 FRONT 15x10 SCAPTION 20x10

    FACE PULLS: 80x10,10 60x10,10

    SEATED DB PRESS: Now that the shoulders are pre-exhausted... 50x10,8 40x10,10

    Yeaaaaaaaaaaa!

    This was hard to get over. It was the same not breaking a sweat thing. Pushing the prowler at the end of a work out shut that up quickly. And not being able to walk for days after squats! But I couldn't be more proud of her.

    Well something must have clicked... she asked me earlier today "when are we doing arms again?" So that put a smile on my face. Now I just gotta get her to try some Origin haha :-)

    Ran cardio with the Mrs today. No ORIGIN (I feel like it would be better used for HIIT as opposed to LISS) used. Saving that for the weights only! Ended up running 4 miles with a split pace.

    Mile 0-1: 6mph
    Mile 1-2: 6.1mph
    Mile 2-3: 6.2mph
    Mile 3-3.5: 6.3mph
    Mile 3.5-3.75: 6.5mph
    Mile 3.75-4: 7.0mph

    Felt relatively easy. I'm trying to get my baseline pace up a bit from 6.0mph. Almost seems too slow now

    Tomorrow is CHEST followed by on BACK on Tuesday. I'm ready to heavy up the weights!
