    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!

  8. 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!

  9. 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.

  12. 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

  17. 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.

  18. Yeaaaa century finisher! Solid workout ! The origin really helped u with lack of sleep?? I coulda used that today!

  19. 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.
