    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

    Why not run and lift on the same day?
    Darn wives.. geez!
    It's all good to just log on the days you use origin.
    I have mine to use with Protocol tomorrow!

    Lol... I work nights and usually I'll do my cardio fasted when I wake up so doing weights when I get off work doesn't afford me much time to sleep especially if I'm working back to back (to back) nights :-(!

    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!

    Sleep is over rated.
    Just kidding. I can understand that. It's hard when you don't have a normal schedule to fit lots in. I only have time for lifting on shorter run days.

    i came a little.. no homo

  9. 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.

    Stay tuned,

    Nice detail so far!

  11. 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

    Keep it up

  16. DAY 8: ARMS

    So much for not feeling that back workout yesterday during the workout... woke up today sore as ****! Something must have been working! Slept great and woke up ready to get back into the gym. I wanted to do shoulders but since I hit some of that during yesterdays back workout I decided to hold off and do arms instead. Threw down 2 scoops of ORIGIN and headed for the gym.

    WRIST CURLS: 40x20 60x20,20,20 (prev. 60x20,20,15)

    REVERSE CURLS: 20x20 50x10+40x10 40x20,20 (each set 10 reps wrists tilted down/10 reps wrists tilted up)

    HAMMER CURLS: 20x15 25x15,15,15,15 (wt. ea. hand... up since last time )

    TRICEP PUSHDOWN: 45x20,20,20,20 (10 reps underhand/10 reps overhand)

    OVERHEAD DB EXTENSION: 30x20,20,20 35x20 (may have to rotate this with skullcrushers since I don't feel it as much as I think I should)

    CLOSE GRIP BENCHPRESS: 75x15,15,15,15 (still not sure about these... I still feel it in my chest? Maybe I need to go more narrow)

    STRAIGHT BAR CURL: 40x20,20 40x10+30x10 30x20

    INCLINE DB CURL: 15x10+10x10 10x20

    CONCENTRATION CURL: 10x20,20

    I'm not sure what I would be doing if I wasn't working with this much volume because ORIGIN gives me energy for DAYS. Although next week I will be switching the rep counts lower and working with some heavier weights for this workout. I have always responded very well to the low weight/high rep scheme (although feeling like I get some strange looks in the gym for lifting what appears to be extremely light weight :\) but I'd like to switch it up every once in awhile and get back the medium/heavy weights and keep the muscles guessing. Due to the fact that I'm currently training for the mini-marathon I've decided to take my leg workout out completely. It's difficult to lift legs and then try and run long distances the following or a few days following that routine. So for now my split has become: CHEST/BACK/ARMS/SHOULDERS with cardio around 3-4x a week. I've really been enjoying my new routine right now and hope to see results in the mirror...

    ... and now back to THE FREAKING INTRO VIDEO that I have been putting off for awhile now... I will have that filmed TODAY! I'm taking tomorrow off since I'll be running on Thursday (my birthday!!) with the wife so I'll have plenty of time to shoot the intro vid. So don't worry peeps I haven't forgotten about it!

    Oh lol... I read what you put differently. I usually try to copy/paste all my forum updates here onto my own personal webpage thats what I meant!

    But yea I know what you mean. I'm not sure if its my web browser at work or the updated website but ever since they updated I can't even see my notifications anymore. I can see the little globe icon and it turns red when I have a new notification but when I hover my mouse over it nothing happens. I have to scroll through most of the forums if I deleted the email in order to find what thread I have a notification about!

  22. Well without further delay here is the "intro" video that I meant to do awhile ago For some reason I was nervous shooting this video (its actually the 2nd take, the first take was much better but when I went to watch it I cut my head for most of the video thanks to poor camera angling) and misspoke a few times (I called Lecheek preworkout MassHGH which is incorrect lol) but here it is finally!


    OP updated with this video in its place

    Thanks man for the video shout out.


    As for your close grip bench press where are you gripping the bar at? When I do it, I maybe have a little more that a hand length separating my hands but be careful cause it's an awkward motion at first.

    No problem Gotta shout out the company that allowed me to log !

    As for the close grip pressing... I've been keeping about 6-8 inches in between my hands (thats what she said). Its definitely MUCH closer than conventional grip (as it needs to be, obviously), and I hear ya about the awkward motion almost like it feels like I might put too much of a strain on my wrists. Thinking of the standard barbell and kneurling:

    XXXX------XXCXX-----XXXX (w/ C = center, the X's being kneurling and the -'s being the smooth part of the bar) I have hands like this:

    XXXP-----XXCXX-----PXXX w/ P being the pinky fingers of both hands. Perhaps I need to move a little bit closer together.

    Should the bar be traveling on the same path as a regular bench press? To just near the nipple line?
