Dewey99 kicks a$$ and takes names with Hemavol and Compete

  1. Update:

    Sorry for not updating the last few days, but I ended up getting sick and not being able to hit the gym. I did manage to get in a bunch of cardio even though I missed a couple days of work. I started feeling better on Friday and decided to give it a go in the gym yesterday.

    Saturday (Fitness Challenge Day 13):

    warmup - 10 minutes jump rope
    walking lunges (no weight) - 30 per leg
    leg press - 4 sets of 20 reps
    hack squat - 4 sets of 15 reps
    leg extensions - 4 sets of 20 reps
    seated leg curls - 4 sets of 15 reps
    seated calf raises - 3 sets of 20 reps
    abduction/adduction - 3 sets of 25 of each

    abs - 4 sets of 25 reps on Ab-bench

    10 minutes of jump rope to finish

    Notes: I actually felt pretty good during the workout, even though I am still congested. Strength and endurance were both good, so maybe the time off did me some good.

    Supplements used: For this fasted workout I stuck with the original stack of a scoop of Hemavol and one scoop of Compete 30 minutes before my workout and another scoop of compete intra-workout.

    For additional cardio, I logged an additional 90 minutes on the recumbent bike throughout the rest of the day (2 45-minute sessions).


  2. Hemavol and Compete providing you the endurance and recovery for such a brutal workout....

    I am burning a ton of calories for sure. Lately it has been a struggle to consume adequate amounts of food to keep up. I'm doing what I can and focusing on keeping my protein intake high along with eating lots of fresh fruits and veggies.

    This is probably a good time to talk about other supplements I am using right now to support my health and fitness goals. Besides the Hemavol and Compete, the only non-health supp I am taking is a beta version of a day/night fat burner. I am however taking fish oil, a multi and a joint support supplement. As much wear and tear I am putting on my body right now, I think those health supps are as important as ever.
    i definately agree...be careful of injury!!! don't be affraid to take a light or rest day when your body needs it...think long term!!!!

    I learned my lesson last year after tearing up my shoulder by going too heavy, too soon. This month has been much more about endurance work, so if I get tired I just have to back off or dial down the intensity. Being sick hasn't helped lately, but I am getting it done.

    Sunday (Fitness Challenge Day 14):

    This was supposed to be my heavy leg day, but I just wasn't feeling it between being sick and all of the work I have been putting my legs through. I didn't want to waste a trip to the gym so I improvised.

    warmup - 10 minutes jump rope
    leg press - 4 sets of 10 reps (low weight)
    leg extensions - 3 sets of 10 reps
    standing calf raises - 3 sets of 10 reps
    abs - 4 sets of 15 reps on Ab-bench

    I was feeling pretty spent so I cut the lifting short and did some cardio. I jumped rope for another 10 minutes and jogged 2 miles on the treadmill before calling it a day.

    Supplements: One scoop of Hemavol and one scoop of Compete 30 minutes before working out and another scoop of Compete intra-workout. I didn't get the usual boost that this stack normally gives me. To be fair, I didn't lift enough to take advantage of the Hemavol and the Compete did help but supplements can only go so far when you are feeling run down.

    Monday (Fitness Challenge Day 15):


    After feeling so drained on Sunday, I decided to back off a little and take it easier on Monday. I didn't lift, didn't jump rope and only diss LISS cardio. I took it easy and went to see the new Die Hard movie. You can wait for the DVD if you haven't seen it....

    I have an appointment with my Orthopedist on Wednesday and I am very hopeful that he will clear me to start doing some upper-body lifting. My shoulder rehab has been going better and range of motion is greatly improved over the last month. Even if he clears me, I won't be able to do that much. At this point I would be happy as can be to be able to do something other than legs. I am keeping my fingers crossed!

  7. good luck!!!

  10. No lifting since the weekend, but I am trucking along with the cardio. I am riding the recumbent bike a total of 1.5-2 hours per day and jumping rope a total of 75 minutes per day at this point. My legs are tired!

    The big news came from my visit with my Orthopedist yesterday. He is encouraged by the extra movement I gained in my shoulder and gave me the green light to start some upper-body lifting! I am so excited even though I will have to take it really slow.

    I can't wait to hit the gym tonight and work something other than just legs! The doc wants me to stick to exercises I can do with my elbows tucked in to my sides for safety. So far I have thought of bicep curls, tricep pushdowns and shrugs as far as things I can try. I am all ears if anybody else has ideas though!

  16. Thursday (Fitness Challenge Day 18):

    Arm day....wait, wut? That's right, arm day. Ok, maybe leg day with some arms thrown in but let's be honest. I was excited as hell to be working upper-body for the first time in almost 6 months.

    warmup: 10 minutes jump rope
    leg press: 4 sets of 15 reps (light weights since legs are fried from all the cardio - 4 plates per side)
    hack squat: 4 sets of 15 reps
    leg extensions: 4 sets of 20 reps
    standing leg curls: 3 sets of 15 reps

    E-Z bar curls: 3 sets of 10 @ only 30lbs. (I need to start slow and be careful)
    Dumbbell Shrugs: 3 sets of 10 reps with 50 lb. dumbbells
    Straight bar triceps push downs: 3 sets of 10 reps @ 70 lbs.

    I also used the cables and did some of my shoulder rehab work that I usually do at home with bands. Range of motion is the focus here, so the pin was in the first block at 10 lbs.

    Cool down: 10 minutes jump rope

    Supplements used: One scoop of Hemavol and one scoop of Compete 30 minutes before working out and another scoop of Compete intra-workout. This was perfect since I was working out after work and wouldn't want to take a lot of stims anyway. I felt really good last night. I think I was amped up from being able to finally work arms again and that carried me through. I did notice insane pumps in my biceps and forearms from the Hemavol. I was going really slow and really focusing on the movement and contraction and that made the pumps even more intense. The Compete is really helping me recover quickly between sets and between workouts. It's also helping me keep up with the ridiculous amount of cardio I am doing. I'm thankful to have these at my disposal during this taxing month.

    I made sure to avoid overdoing it since I don't want to end up back here again. It felt great to get in a good workout and I am really looking forward to my time in the gym this weekend.

  17. gotta love your enthusiasm, dewey!!!
    WELL DONE IS BETTER THAN WELL SAID

  18. Friday was another cardio-only day with a total of 90 minutes on the recumbent bike and 75 minutes total jumping rope.

    Saturday (Fitness Challenge Day 20):

    Saturday morning and time for another fasted workout. I took my Hemavol and Compete and then left for the gym. I brought along another shaker with more Compete as usual too. Aside from jumping rope, no leg work today! Upper-body lifts were kept to 3 sets each using low weights and strict form. I wasn't really sore from Thursday's lifts, so I was able to add some additional volume this time around.

    warmup: 15 minutes jump rope
    straight bar tricep push downs: 3 sets of 10 reps
    tricep rope extensions: 3 sets of 10 reps
    single arm reverse extensions: 3 sets of 10 reps
    Hammer Strength shrugs: 3 sets of 10 reps
    dumbbell curls: 3 sets of 10
    hammer curls: 3 sets of 10
    reverse E-Z bar curls: 3 sets of 10
    cable work for shoulder rehab

    Abs: 4 sets of 25 reps on Ab-bench
    15 minutes jump rope to finish

    This was a little bit more demanding workout as far as my shoulder goes. It hurt a bit a certain points, but I was careful to avoid aggravating it too much. I am thrilled to be doing some upper-body work, but it sure is hard to suck up how weak I feel. Oh well, I know I will eventually get back to where I should be.

    Pumps from the Hemavol were insane today. My forearms and biceps felt so tight that it honestly felt like my skin was going to spit a couple times. I tried to capture this in a pic, but it doesn't really do the pumps justice:


  19. Bet it felt awesome getting some great bloodflow into the arms after the time off.

    Definitely! Now I just need to take it slow and steady and resist the urge to do more than I should.

  23. Sunday (Fitness Challenge Day 21):

    Leg day again:

    warmup - 10 minutes jump rope
    walking lunges (holding 25 lb. plates) - 25 reps per leg
    leg press - 3 sets of 10 reps and 1 set of 8 reps
    Icarin Super Squat - 3 sets of 10 reps
    leg extensions - 4 sets of 12 reps
    lying leg curls - 4 sets of 10 reps
    Standing calf raises - 4 sets of 15 reps

    abs - 6 sets of 25 reps on Ab-bench
    10 minutes jump rope to finish

    I traded some volume for more weight and longer rest periods during this workout. I was not able to go all out since my legs are pretty fried from all of the cardio I have been doing. This will be the last workout like this until my Fitness Challenge is over. With a week left, I will focus on HIIT cardio and carry that style over to my lifting as well. The last week is time for me to get serious about losing weight.

    Supplements: 1 scoop of Hemavol and 1 scoop of Compete about 40 minutes before my workout. I also had the usual second scoop of Compete while I worked out.

    I have to say that Compete is really helping with Recovery. I hit arms pretty hard on Saturday and was starting to get really sore by Sunday morning. I had one more scoop of Compete later in the day on Sunday and this morning I woke up feeling much better! I fully expected the soreness to be worse today but it wasn't. A lot of that has to be do to Compete.

  30. Wednesday (Fitness Challenge Day 24):

    The cardio train keeps rollin'. I am up to 2 hours of riding the recumbent bike and 75 minutes of jump rope daily. I am wearing down though, and will be happy when Monday comes and this thing is over!

    Wednesday morning I rode the recumbent bike for an hour and then jumped rope for 15 minutes before work. I jumped rope for an additional 60 minutes total while at work. Even after all that, I just had to go to the gym since I was dying to do some more upper-body stuff.

    Arm day:

    warmup - 10 minutes jump rope
    stretching- 10 minutes of range of motion work
    straight bar triceps press downs - 3 sets of 10
    dumbbell kickbacks - 3 sets of 10 with really light weight (15 lbs.)
    reverse cable press downs - 3 sets of 10
    dumbbell curls - 3 sets of 10 (once again, light weight @ 20 lbs.)
    E-Z bar curls - 3 sets of 10
    reverse E-Z bar curls - 3 sets of 10
    Hammer Strength shrugs - 3 sets of 10

    Shoulder rehab work with cables and light weights
    abs - 4 sets of 25 reps on Ab-bench
    10 minutes of jump rope to finish off my workout

    I felt really good last night. I have been dying to lift again since I last did arms on Saturday. I feel like the lifting is actually helping my shoulder loosen up a bit too. That could be placebo though, so time will tell. I can say that it is at least not making my shoulder worse!

    Supplements used: 1 scoop of Hemavol and 1 scoop of Compete about 40 minutes before my workout. I also had the usual second scoop of Compete while I worked out.

    Since I went nearly 6 months without being able to do arms, I forgot how pronounced Hemavol's effects are when you work arms. My biceps and forearms were so pumped that it was painful at times. It was a good kind of pain though! Compete has kept me trucking along too. Besides helping me through these long workouts, it is a lifesaver to have on hand after long sessions of jump rope. It keeps me hydrated and refreshed, all while helping me recover enough to keep going. You don't need to wait for my final review to know that I love this stuff. That's why I bought more!
