    DAY 14: CHEST

    Boom. Roasted. 2 scoops Origin as usual preworkout... did a few quick chores around the house and then it was off to the gym for a workout of considerably epic proportions (for me, anyway). The energy here was just nonstop and fluid. It stayed with me the entire time I was in the gym and I didn't want to take any time between sets before moving on to the next thing but I had to force myself to stop and catch my breath!

    Note: Any bolded items below represent PRs

    MACHINE FLYS: 100x20 145x15 175x12 205x10 250x10 a pre-exhausting start!

    DB INCLINE PRESS: 40x20 50x14 60x8 65x7 75x4 (wt. ea. hand)

    DB INCLINE FLY: 25x15,10,10 (wt. ea. hand)

    FLAT DB BENCHPRESS: 60x12,10,10 (wt. ea. hand)

    CHEST PRESS: 120x12 125x9 100x6 70x12

    HIGH CABLE FLYS/BODYWEIGHT DIPS SUPERSET: R1 40x10/BWx4 w/ failure R2: 40x10/BWx4 w/ failure R3: 40x10/BWx6 w/ failure

    I'm going to feel this tomorrow for sure If my partner had come with me I would have switched some of those exercises over to barbell but since he wasn't with me I just decided to push everything out with DBs instead.

Can't wait for it to warm up outside I'm ready to hit the pavement.
    It will. It's getting accustomed to proper breathing and relaxing as you run. It all gets easier!!!

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!
    I love working out with Dave. There are times where I get mad when he tries to help. I love lifting. It's helped my running and changed my body! Plus when I'm with the hubby with work outs it's awesome time together. A great hobby!

    Alright time for some updates. Got some workouts in and didn't get a chance to post them!

    DAY 15: BACK - 1/22/13

    2 scoops Origin... I'm almost thinking of bumping this up to 2.5 hmmm... I also have some spare agmatine that I may throw in just to get some pump action in to go along with the focus/energy I get from Origin! Todays purpose was move heavier weights in a lower rep range. Next week starts hypertrophy low weight/high reps again. I've noticed some slight growth changes in the mirror lately

    STERNUM-UPS: BWx7,6,6,5 strict form, deadhang, squeezing lats and holding at the top

    CABLE LAT PULLOVER: 45x10,10 50x10 55x10 (this will be changing soon to an actual pullover machine gonna change my gym up for back day)

    LAT PULLDOWN: 70x20 85x15 100x12 120x8 140x5 (form got bad) 85x8 55x15 (burn!)

    BENT OVER ROW: 95x12 115x10 135x8,12 95x15

    SEATED ROW NARROW: 120x10 110x10,10,10 DROPSET 90x8 75x10 55x15 (burrrrn!)

    Had to leave early because my workout partner had to get home but man I was feeling good after that! Moved some heavier weights that I had not planned on!

    1-23-13

    Ran 6 miles today. Meant to go for 7 and felt good enough for 8 but at our gym there is a 20-minute limit on cardio machines when there are people waiting. The treadmills at our gym are maxed for a 60min. workout... so usually went I want to go beyond 60 minutes I have to stop, reset, and start again. There were a TON of people waiting and I didn't want to be an ass so I decided to stop short of my goal of 8 I should have just kept going and not have stopped unless someone said something to me.

    Ended up hurting something in my left leg. Doesn't feel like a muscle pull and I'm not sure what it is. Its on the backside just above the calf between the calf and the hamstring right behind where your knee bends. Hurts to fully extend my leg to a straight locked position. This has been giving me trouble in the past when I get into distances over 3-4 miles... not sure what happened but I'll be resting it up for awhile. I think I need to do a leg day in the gym and see if strengthening it helps dimish the pain.

    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!
    Very cool!

    I put my gf through a leg workout. Was cool to see the respect you get for how hard you lift.

    My apologies for not being present, that shall not happen anymore in this log.

    DAY 16: LEGS

    So after hurting myself going for a long run the last time I ran I put my running legs to rest for a few days and decided that perhaps a strength training leg day would help alleviate some of the pain. While I was right... the pain in my left leg seems to have gone away... I introduced myself more pain in the form of DOMS. Its like I had never lifted legs in my life! I kind of enjoy it though... lets me know I did something right. I think I'll be rotating a leg routine back into my workout but not one so intense that it makes it impossible for me to run the next day.

    Took 2.5 scoops of Origin this time. I left the amount of water the same (~12-16oz.) and I kind of like how sweet it tastes. Slight tang to it! Really enjoy drinking this down! Got to the gym, did a bunch of stretches to prepare my legs for the ensuing workout, and had at it!

    BARBELL BACK SQUATS: 135x10 165x10 195x8 205x5 225x3 165x5

    BARBELL FRONT SQUATS: 95x8 105x8 115x8

    STIFFED LEGGED DEADLIFT: 95x10 135x10 155x10

    LEG EXTENSIONS: 100x10 105x10 110x10 130x10

    SEATED CALF RAISE: 50x20,19,15

    LEG PRESS BURNOUT: 25x215 ouch! Cheda tempted me with the 100rep finisher on the leg press but I'm going to have to cut back the weight considerably to even get those reps in! Next time

    Sorry for not having my midpoint review video posted. I'm actually in the process of getting my phone swapped out for an insurance claim. It fell out of my pocket out of its case and the screen got all cracked to hell. I'll have it written up here after I get back from the gym. Gonna go do chest

    Yep. Forgot to mention that when I do it as a starter, it also serves as a finisher. No fun walking after that. You literally feel like dying.

    Haha I hate that. Idk how much my Machine is but I usually only use 2-3 plates each side for It. Basically pick a weight u can get 50. Then u wanna rep out 5 sets of 10 or 20,20,10.. But whenever u get 50 easily, u wanna up the weight

    Hahaha well! I've read you should just take 4-5 deep breathes and pump out as Manu as u can. When resting, keep your legs in position on the platform. This keeps the occlusion of blood and enhances the ending PUMP!

    DAY 17: CHEST/TRIS

    Splitting the arms back up since I'm re-incorporating legs back into my routine. I don't have my workout sheet on me (couldn't find it) so I'm doing this from memory. Took 2.5 scoops of Origin this time and then waited about 30 minutes before heading to the gym.

    FLAT DB BENCHPRESS: 50x15 75x10,10,10,10

    INCLINE BARBELL PRESS: 45x10 95x10,10,10 105x10

    MACHINE FLYS: 150x10 175x10,10 145x10

    DB PULLOVER: 65x10 70x10,10,10

    SKULLCRUSHERS: 55x10,10,10,10

    TRICEP PUSHDOWN: 100x10,10,10,10

    NO-ATTACHMENT PUSHDOWN: 10x10,10,10,10 (ea. arm)

    Focus was locked in from the moment I stepped into the gym. Headphones in, hoodie up, went to work. Energy was nice and smooth and lasted throughout the whole workout. The thing that I find strange is that I'm so used to pump products and feeling that sense of a pump during my workout. I know that pumps aren't indicators of good workouts... just look at my leg workout. I hadn't lifted legs for awhile and the pumps during squats were painful once I hit 195lbs. I felt like my chest workout last night wasn't very beneficial because I didn't "feel the pump" during any of the chest exercises... well turns out I wake up today and the DOMS are as present as ever. ! Success!

    GENOMYX ORIGIN: MIDPOINT REVIEW

    We all know that sad sad feeling we get when we open our preworkout container and notice that its almost gone well I'm quickly approaching that point with ORIGIN and I wish it wasn't the case. I know a midpoint review write up won't be as entertaining as the video I had planned on shooting, but I'm definitely planning on wrapping up this log with a final video review.

    TASTE
    I've gone through a plethora of preworkouts before and I'm always amazed at how different they can all taste. Even though they are all uniquely named "Fruit Punch" or "Blue Raspberry" they never quite end up tasting the same. And a lot of times the taste may not even end up being something we like, but we know we must forcefully choke it down because of the benefits it yields us when we are in the gym. Origin is actually a delicious treat that I look forward to drinking as much as I look forward setting foot into the gym. I initially started off with 1 scoop in about 10oz. of water and moved to 2 scoops in 12-16oz. of water and now I'm up to about 2.5 scoops around 16 oz. of water. The flavor is nice and sweet, which I prefer, with no blandness or bad aftertaste. Although my container was not actually labeled, the flavor is distinctly very much cherry which is quite refreshing and a different change of pace for supplement flavorings out of the tried and true fruit punches and blue raspberries. And it seems like no matter how much water I add, the flavor continues to stay the same. Its almost like drinking a red Powerade with a bit more sweetness to it. Its definitely easy going down and its hard to slow yourself down and savor the flavor because its just that good!

    MIXABILITY
    A quick couple of shakes and everything dissipates easily, turning your shaker cup into a nice shade of deep maroon. There is some slightly fizziness/bubbles that float on the top but after a few more shakes or just letting it sit for a minute those will disappear. Drinking it down I did not detect any particles or clumps. Nice and smooth.

    ENERGY
    In my opinion the energy I get from Origin seems to take a little longer to come "on" than with other drinks I've tried. This is not a big deal, especially when I live 5 minutes from my gym and I usually take Origin prior to getting all of my stuff ready for the gym. Usually around the post-30 minute mark is when I finally get to it and the energy comes on very clean. A trend that I have started to notice amongst preworkout drinks is that while there are varying degrees to when the energy kicks in and how hard it kicks in, there is rarely a crash anymore post workout. This is true of Origin. The energy comes on very clean and stays with you throughout your workout. Once you are done it tapers back down to baseline and you are left with just your endorphin-high from a successful workout.

    FOCUS
    Probably the highlight of what I have felt so far from Origin. Mind-muscle connection establishes itself as quick as the energy kicks in when you begin your warmup. Felt like I had horse blinders on. I could hear myself in my head telling me to focus on each contraction and stretch of the muscle group that was being worked instead of just blindly flying through the workout and not paying attention to my own body. It really makes you work those muscles to their full extent ensuring that you are performing each rep to the best of your ability. I have used Craze in the past and while it gets praiseworthy attention for the mind-muscle connection, I feel that Origin far exceeds it. It lasts longer and I felt like I could have stayed in the gym for hours.

    ENDURANCE & RECOVERY
    The second highlight for Origin. Without typing a book here... the DOMS I feel are drastically reduced in time by almost a day (I usually feel the sorest from my workouts 2 days after working a certain muscle group). With ORIGIN I'm sore after the first day and then ready to go again by day 2. In the gym I found myself requiring less recovery time in between sets and able to push myself a little farther with each set. This effect has built itself up over the course of me taking Origin and I look for it to continue at an even greater pace as I go into the 2.5-3 scoops preworkout dosage.

    DAY 18: BACK & BIS

    Woke up. Got a haircut. Threw 2 scoops of Origin into a shaker cup I had just filled up with a bottle of water along with 6g of CM and 1g of Agmatine, just to experiment I forgot my headphones at home and was kind of bummed about that but knew that I had work to do.

    NEUTRAL GRIP PULL UPS: BWx8,6,4,4 (fast up, squeeze, slow down, deadhang)

    BENT OVER ROWS: 135x12,10 115x10,8 95x10,8

    STANDING CABLE LAT PULLOVER: 45x10 50x10 55x10 60x10 25x15,20

    LAT PULLDOWN: DROPSET 120x12 100x10 85x12 70x15 55x20

    ONE-ARM DB ROW: 50x10 55x8 60x7 70x6

    SEATED NARROW GRIP CABLE ROW: 120x8,8,8,8

    RACK PULLS: 135x15 225x12 275x10 315x8 365x6 225x10

    HAMMER CURLS: 30x10 35x10 40x8 30x10 (ea. hand)

    STRAIGHT BAR CURL: 60x10,10

    CABLE REVERSE CURL: 40x12,12 50x10,10

    Focus was great. I went through this workout surprisingly fast. Origin had me zoned in and focused even without music in my ears. Didn't really feel much in terms of pump until I got to the bicep routines. Walked out feeling great... didn't think I'd even come close to 365 for rack pulls. Should have attempted 405! Last time I did that was quite a few years ago!

    Holy......I don't have enough fingers to count how many sets you did in this workout. I would have my head up high, straight up feeling alpha and hitting on every girl with tight ass in yoga pants after finishing a workout like this.

    Funny thing is I probably could have hung around and done some more stuff I had that much energy! Had to leave to get ready for work

    DAY 20: LEGS

    Didn't sleep very well prior to workout so took 2.5 scoops of ORIGIN as soon as I got up so I could be awake and focused in the gym.

    BARBELL BACK SQUATS: 135x10,10 185x8,6 205x4 225x2,2,2,2 235x2 135x15

    SEATED CALF RAISE: 90x10,10,10,10

    HAMSTRING CURLS: 100x10,10,10,10,10 something strange going on with my left leg. Halfway through pulling the pad up I can feel something "click" or "pop" right at the crease of my left leg where I've been feeling pain from running. Not sure what that is...

    LEG EXTENSIONS: 115x10,10,10,10

    LEG PRESS: 175x100 This absolutely sucked! I don't know how you guys (fu/cheda) can do it! I was fine through the first 50 reps. Did 5 sets of 10 initially. Started feeling the burn near the 35 rep mark. The funny thing was, it wasn't my legs that started to hurt... it was my lower back and my toes/feet that started to cramp up! As much as I tried to hold the weight in position at the top I just couldn't do it. I had to let my legs down and shake them out before going back at it again. I managed to get through a 100 and once I got up I had a hard time walking lol. Felt great though and was a good way to end the workout.

    It took a long time for me to get to a 100 with my stocky legs. I can't imagine how tough it probably was for you with long legs. I did a lot of rest pause in the beginning. You are right, it is not your leg that gives first. It is your lower back. I only do it once in a while. Like climbing a mountain. It feels great when you do it, but not practical to do it every workout.

    I literally have to crawl out on my hands and knees when I finish. Great fun !

    Yea man it sure did help... tonight is my first night back to work in 3 days so like I typically do I'll try and stay up until 3-4AM to get my body used to being up that late (its the only time I can play my video games without my wife asking to use the TV ) but I kept waking up all throughout the day and tossing and turning. So didn't really get great sleep. Woke up feeling groggy as hell and not wanting to workout. Took ORIGIN before I had even put my contacts in to spur me into getting up lol... and it worked. Workout went great (with my squat #s were up but with marathon training I can't move the heavy stuff yet. Goal to hit 315 [again] after the marathon training is done!) and I am still alive and surviving at work thanks to some water and Mio Energy!

    Oh man it was god awful. My ROM is ridiculously long... what was even worse was I probably looked like a fool lifting barely anything on that machine. Unloaded 125lbs + 2x25lbs plates lol.... but at 100 reps... yea you'll feel that for sure! I won't be doing that again for awhile. Enjoyed the warmup for that leg press exercise by unloading the weight left on by the previous dbag

    My brother and I played the crap out of Black Ops 1 on the 360. Those were the good ol' days when he and I used to live together. We'd stay up til the wee hours of the morning just owning people and crushing a case of beer lol. There would be some days when I'd leave for work late in the afternoon and he'd be playing... and when I'd get home early in the morning he would still be up playing. It was insane. So now we play BO2 together on the PS3 except we don't live together and I'm no longer throwing back the beers Still fun! First person shooters are definitely my thing.
