  4. 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)

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!
    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 :-)

  10. 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!

  11. 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 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!

    It is good. She get frustrated with me when I try to help as well. I just smile and walk away. A few creepers and shell come running back.

  15. 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!

  16. 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.

    Yeah we tried doing Bench Press. She couldn't do the 45lb bar, so I had to find a random ass 25lb bar lol

  22. 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.

    I wanted some plates on there when I tried it at my gym because the leg press machine when unloaded weighs 125lbs and I didn't want to look like a bitch lifting without any plates on lol.... lesson learned!

    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
