    I say yes. When I close grip it's always explosive. Like I'm double punching some one. My tris are my limiting factor on bench so doing explosive close grip addresses that well.

    I also have around a fist size gap between my hands.

    Yeah similar. I kind of think of my motion is like the car jack that comes in your car. Diamond type explosive move...

  8. Thanks guys :-) did some HIIT cardio earlier in the day after throwing down 2 scoops of ORIGIN. I was worried about how well I would perform considering I've been doing strictly LISS lately but to be honest it was a friggin breeze and the time flew by. Did 10 cycles of 1:30 brisk walk and 30 seconds of all out sprints. Including warm up/cool down clocked in at 3 miles and burned just under 400 cals in 25 minutes!

    Origin has di-caffeine malate (sp?) In it and is the first preworkout/supplement that I've taken to have this ingredient in it. Now I may sound like I'm just reiterating what the NutraPlanet description already says, but the energy from this type of caffeine comes on very smooth and slowly builds itself up to a nice clean ride. I'm sure we've all tried Redbull or Monster energy drinks before (or even the caffeine from the EC stack) and usually in my experience you go from 0 to 100mph in about 30 minutes with jitters, rapid heart rate, and a almost panic attack type of feeling which ultimately results in a crash and you feel worse off then when you started. The stim in Origin does none of this. Clean buildup of energy, jitter free, nice and focused with no panicky feelings and with no crash just a slow taper back down to baseline. I'm enjoying it.

    I don't know the exact conversion but the dicaffeine malate isn't like straight caffeine. DJ gives a good explanation below though and that is similar to my experiences.

    It is about 75% so a serving of Origin has roughly 250mg caffeine (125mg per scoop)

  15. DAY 9: SHOULDERS

    Quick and dirty. Slept in and had to see the parents for the traditional birthday dinner and I wanted to squeeze in a quick workout. Since I had taken some slight shoulder work during the last BACK exercise this workout today was short and sweet. ORIGIN about 30 minutes prior... but then I lost track of time playing Black Ops 2 on my PS3. So I took one more scoop prior to even getting into the gym. I was almost expecting some sort of stim/caffeine overdose feeling because of the relatively short period of taking the 3 scoops but this did not happen at all. The same smooth energy came and left without a crash and the focus was just as intense as ever.

    I did the dropsets only because I knew the workout was going to go quick and really wanted to burn the shoulders down. Feels silly looking at myself in the mirror pressing only 25lbs dumbbells in each hand but my shoulders are screaming at me by that point.

  18. DAY 10: CHEST

    Today was a fun day in the gym for sure... I ended up leaving that place having broke one of the dumbbells :| but it wasn't my fault! I blame ORIGIN !

    DB BENCHPRESS: 40x20 70x10,10,10,9 (wt. ea. hand) On the last set with the 70s I ended up failing on the 10th rep... I only got halfway up, but I brought the DBs down in a nice controlled motion. I never slam them or throw them onto the ground. Well as I got up from the bench to place the 70s back in the rack I noticed the one I used for my right hand had fallen apart and the plates that are used to comprise the weight of the DB had rolled around on the floor. What happened was that the bolt that kept everything in place simply sheered and snapped. I was just glad it didn't happen while I was mid rep or that would have headed straight for my face!

    DB INCLINE PRESS: 30x12 40x10,10,10,10

    DB PULLOVER: 40x15 60x10,10,10,12

    Haha yea... had something of happened I would have been all over management in a second. I'm assuming this has happened before because for like 3 weeks straight this gym was missing a single 45 and 60. Kind of makes me uncomfortable thinking I'm lifting with half-assed equipment. Hell one of the benchpress benches will have its back 2 stabilizer legs come off the ground if the bar is loaded up with enough weight... scary ****! But I love that gym. Hardly busy when I'm in there except for the cardio bunnies watching their ipads and moving 200mph on an elliptical.

  21. 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.
