Sunday (Fitness Challenge Day 7):
I am a morning person, but when I woke up on Sunday I was just tired. I felt kind of groggy and really unmotivated to get up and hit the gym. I wasn't going to let that stop me, but I decided I needed a strong stim boost for my pwo stack and found a sample from the Olympia that fit nicely:
I did took one sample packet of Grape Max Intense, 1 scoop of Hemavol and 1 scoop of compete all separately about 30 minutes before my workout. This was my first time using the the new MI and it was still strong, but still didn't do anything for me in the flavor department. I also mixed a second scoop of Compete in 24 oz. of water and took it to the gym with me.
Heavy leg day:
warmup - 5 minutes of jump rope
leg press - 3 sets of 10 reps and one set of 8 reps
Icarin Super-Squat - 4 sets of 10 reps
standing calf raises - 4 sets of 12 reps (on Icarin Super-Squat)
standing hamstring curls - 3 sets of 10 reps
leg extensions: 1 set of 12 reps and 3 sets of 10 reps
abs - 4 sets of 25 reps on Ab-bench
5 minutes of jump rope to finish things off
I felt much better after jumping rope for 5 minutes. That got my heart pumping and the Max Intense really kicked in around then as well. I felt strong throughout my entire workout and was able to keep my rest periods to 60 seconds or less thanks to quick recovery and nice endurance. I left the gym feeling physically exhausted but great.
Supplements used: As you can see above, I used the fabled Hemavol/Max Intense/Compete combo today and loved it. So much energy and the pumps were ridiculous.
I mentioned getting pumps everywhere and having veins n my legs bulging out where I normally don't see anything. I took a picture to try and show you what I mean:
You can see the veins bulging out on my lower left leg in a few different places. I had crazy pumps in my right forearm just from racking and unracking plates! This stack really made me sad that I can't work upper body right now....
Sunday's work wasn't done when I left the gym. Here's what I did with the rest of my day:
recumbent bike: 90 minutes total
jump rope: another 30 minutes (2 15-minute sets)
Monday (Fitness Challenge Day 8):
Mega cardio as usual:
recumbent bike - 60 minutes first thing in the AM
jump rope - 10 minutes before work
jump rope - 15 minutes at AM break
jump rope - 30 minutes at lunch (before I ate!)
jump rope - 15 minutes at PM break
walking - one mile in the evening with my GF
recumbent bike - 45 minutes in the evening while watching TV
Supplements used: One scoop of Compete after 30 minutes of jumping rope (while I ate my chicken/veggies/Greek yogurt)

Don't know how I missed this Dewey! Kudos on the jump roping. About the only cardio I can stand doing really. It doesn't bother my knees, but be careful of the surface you're jumping on. Learned the hard way that concrete and jump rope is going to lead to nasty shin splints.
Double kudos on the amount of time you can go for. That's actually really impressive. I'm more of a short, intense jump rope kind of guy, but those type of long sets you're doing are really great. Gotta be burning a ton of calories.

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.

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).

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!

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!
