    It only is an issue with stuff that gets me really sucking wind (like rep work/HIIT) its been great at 1 for speed and I liked 1 for ME as well.

    This was my first real taxing rep day so I wanted to see how 1 scoop went.

    Went in today and did my ME movement of the week. This week was OHP, and I was doing the Push Press. I weighed in this morning at 177, so I'm gaining consistently. Probably gonna hold squat at ~180 for a couple of months (2-3) and see how strong I can get and then continue gaining weight. Wanting to get to around 195-200 this year, if possible, so yeah.


    Only took 3/4 scoop today, and I had a great workout with it.

    Pre: 3/4 scoop Stimul8
    Intra: Water

    Warm-Up: Band Pull Apart, Y Pull Apart, Band Over and Backs, Shoulder Dislocates, Band "No Monies", LAX Ball Upper Back/Pec Minor/Delts/Bicep, Band Tricep Ext, Band Cross Body Curls, Band Bradford Press

    Light Pull Aparts in between sets.

    Strict OHP: 45x8, 75x6, 95x4
    Push Press: 135x3, 185x1 (PR, and actual goal for today), 205xF, 205xF (Couldn't quite lock it out, stupid weak triceps. 185 was easy, 205 not happening)

    Lying Tricep Ext.: 30x8x2, 30x5 (a little pain in my left elbow)

    Inc. Bench: 115x10, 135x10, 135x7

    Band Pushdown: 1 Arm MMx10x2 / Both arms MM (2 knots) x10, MM(3 knots) x10 (AVG was too heavy today, tri's were done)

    6 Ways: 10x12x3 (these were awful)

    Had a good workout, really enjoyed the 3/4 scoop today. Didn't sweat nearly as much as I had been the last couple of days. No shortness of breath but I still had just as much energy and focus, which is a great thing. Was moving fast today, might need to start up with the cissus again, starting to have elbow issues (which has never been an issue). Knees are a little sore, which happens when it gets wet outside (like it has been the last couple of days). Didn't get to the agility work yesterday, because it was pissing rain outside. Probably better anyway, the hammies and glutes are SORE....got explosive deadlifts tomorrow, expecting a good day.

    For my first, just whatever weight I come in at.

    Ultimately, probably 198.

    Or, just get super stacked and compete SHW.

    Went in today and did some Speed Deadlift work. Took 3/4 scoop again, and the sweat was back in FULL FORCE.

    I was flying today, all told I spend about an hour and a half in the gym. 40 Minutes of Warmup and mobility and knocked the actual workout out in a little under an hour.

    D4W2 Speed DL

    Pre: 3/4 Stimul8
    Intra: Water

    Warmup: Foam Roll ITB/Add./Quad, LAX Ball Glute/Calf (tight from squats, took some extra time with all of this), Band Hip Extensions, Assisted Hip Opening, Deficit DL 45x10, 135x8

    Deficit Deads (standing on 45# plate): 185 x 1 x 8 (30 second between sets)

    Good Morning: 185x8x2, 205x8
    Yates Row: 155x8, 185x8x2
    Pull Ups: BWx10x2, BWx7
    DB Shrugs: 80x15, 90x15x2
    Band Pull Apart: MMx12x3
    BB Curl: Bar x24

    Was sweating again today. Not sure what was different about today and yesterday (might have been dehydrated yesterday ). Regardless, great workout. Felt strong, got off work late but took the 3/4 scoop and had a ton of energy and focus by the time my warmup was done.

    Had 24hr duty again last night. It wasn't CQ, so I was able to get a solid 5 hours sleep, which isn't awful. Hit the gym today for my Event Day, they were brutal....

    D6W2 Event Day

    Pre: 1/2 scoop Stimul8
    Intra: Water

    Warmup: Foam Roll Glute/Quad/ITB/Medialis/Add., Hip Mobility drills, Arm Over Arm Sled Pull: 90x10yds, 180x10yds, 270x10yds, 360x10yds

    Arm Over Arm Pull: 540# (+sled) x 30yds

    Sled Pulls: 540# (+sled) x 30yds

    Medley:
    Front Carry: 140 (+Apparatus) x 30yds
    Backward Sled Drags: 360# (+sled) x 30yds

    Awful. Dead tired, soaked in sweat, out of breath (but not short of breath). Great session. This 540 x 30 was harder than my last pull of that, but this Arm Over Arm was much heavier than I had ever done before. Turned around at ~15yds for the pull, which made them harder because I lost all of my momentum and had to get it going from a dead stop again. I have video of it, will upload that later tonight.

    For now, downing my OxyElite Protein, showering, and heading out to get my wife a new phone.

    Knees are a little sore right now, but besides that I'm feeling good. :bigthumbup:

    We just got my wife a new phone too. She had Virgin Mobile and it was very affordable but we decided to get her on with Verizon. Galaxy S4. It's pretty neat.

    D1W3 ME Squats

    Knees hurting today, left one is bugging. Had a sharp pain on the 315 right as I got to lockout, same with 345 but much less severe. No issue on 375 with that, it was just hard. Got to the gym a little late today because I had to pickup my truck from the shop after I got off work. Energy was good, hips were tight so I spent a little extra time loosening them up. Was sweating during the warmup, like a lot. I was dedicated to getting a PR today (or at least matching) even though the weights were feeling pretty darn heavy.

    Pre: 3/4 scoop Stimul8
    Intra: Water

    Warmup: Foam Rolling, LAX Ball, Bird Dogs, Work up to 315

    LBBS: 315x1, 345x1 (+belt), 375xF, 375x1 (+wraps, matched PR), 380x1 (PR?, questionable)

    http://www.youtube.com/playlist?feat...-zkGIalP-RM4Zi

    Notes: Probably spent about 45 minutes working to the end of this, from Bar to 380.

    Front Squat: 135x10, 185x10, 225x5 (Matched PR)
    Good Morning: 185x5, 205x5, 225x5, 255x5 (PR)
    Seated Cable Row: 110x10, 130x10x3

    And, no calf raises today, it was 9 when I finished so I picked up some chinese on the way home, and here I am.

Got to the gym a little late today because I had to pickup my truck from the shop after I got off work. Energy was good, hips were tight so I spent a little extra time loosening them up. Was sweating during the warmup, like a lot. I was dedicated to getting a PR today (or at least matching) even though the weights were feeling pretty darn heavy.

    Pre: 3/4 scoop Stimul8
    Intra: Water

    Warmup: Foam Rolling, LAX Ball, Bird Dogs, Work up to 315

    LBBS: 315x1, 345x1 (+belt), 375xF, 375x1 (+wraps, matched PR), 380x1 (PR?, questionable)

    http://www.youtube.com/playlist?feat...-zkGIalP-RM4Zi

    Notes: Probably spent about 45 minutes working to the end of this, from Bar to 380.

    Front Squat: 135x10, 185x10, 225x5 (Matched PR)
    Good Morning: 185x5, 205x5, 225x5, 255x5 (PR)
    Seated Cable Row: 110x10, 130x10x3

    And, no calf raises today, it was 9 when I finished so I picked up some chinese on the way home, and here I am.

    So, I did hit the gym yesterday (and today) but I didn't get on the computer at all so I will update them both today. I had 24 hour duty on Wed, so my training got pushed and I will be sprinting tomorrow (no event day this week).

    Suppdate: I have not yet mentioned it, but for the last few sessions I have been pouring the 3/4 scoop of Stimul8 straight into my mouth and swishing it down with water. I prefer taking preworkouts this way, because of convenience. It makes it where I don't have to bring a shaker to the gym and can just down it when I get there and then start my warmup. Also, I am fairly certain I got WAY more than 10 servings lol, I still have a ton left (I will try to take a picture tomorrow, if I remember). So, get cozy everyone. We will be here a while :bigthumbup:

    With that said, here is yesterdays update.

    D3W3 Speed OHP

    Warmup: Got to the gym and it was closing in an hour for the 4th. Didn't warmup besides a few sets with lighter weight.

    Strict OHP: 95x3x8 (utilizing the ballistic method, lower weight AFAP and reverse the motion a few inches above the clavicle)

    Reverse Band Floor Press (used for Tri Overload): 275x1 (too heavy), 245x5x3, 255x3

    245: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mt2XAS62s0g

    Pec Fly: 30x10, 30x7, 20x10
    DB French Press: 70x8, 70x7, 70x5
    Bradford Press: 85x8, 85x7, 85x5
    Pec Deck: 40x12, 40x10

    Notes: Had a great workout, the energy and focus didn't really start hitting me until I was towards the end of the OHP. Probably ~25 minutes after I took the Stimul8, sweating a lot as usual. Speed was good on the OHP, the floor presses were awful lol. Bradford presses were excruciating and I hate doing Pec isolation work. Maybe I just suck, but it seems that no matter how I try to do them I feel it way more in my shoulder and and RC than I do in my chest. I started off with the pec flies on an incline, but they didn't hit the chest at all. Even the 20# weight on the flat was all RC , that's why I added the pec deck at the end, but it was the same issue.


    And now, for today's update:

    Rep DL

    Pre: 3/4 Stimul8
    Intra: Water

    Warmup: worked up to 300 on DL (started Foam Rolling but wasn't tight, and really wasn't motivated today).

    Here is my final warmup set:

    275x2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oO5MzuhN1ZE

    Work Set: 300x8 (no video of this, they felt good, glutes and hams were smoked afterwards)

    Pull Through: 130x10, 150x10
    45 deg. Hyper: MM(doubled)x10x2 (OUCH)

    Seated Cable Row: 110x10, 130x10, 140x10

    a1. Chin Ups: BWx8x3
    a2. Rear Delt Rows: 25x15x3

    BB Curl: Bar x 18

    Notes: Got a good bicep pump today with the chinups followed by the curls. The DL's felt easy on 300, which is strange because the 275 felt heavy. The energy didn't really get to me until I was done warming up, but I was pretty darn focused today. Upper body is sore from yesterday, especially the tri's. I expect my PC to be hurting tomorrow. Overall, I had 2 good sessions in a row. On Monday, I'm going back to the Westside variation that I was doing before picking up the cube so I can prep for the PLing meet I plan to do on August 3rd. I'm planning on doing the APF TX Challenge down in Webster, so we'll see how I do . Feeling good right now, ready to hit some sprints tomorrow and really start hammering my conditioning for these 4 weeks before I compete (I'm signing up this weekend).

    I assumed you guys were on top of it. I'm going to continue using it (obviously), hopefully it still works well.

    Any ideas why this happens? (Without releasing too much product information?)

    ERMAHGERD!

    Scraped out something in between 3/4 - 1 scoop of Stimul8, the taste is very strong when you try to chew it like a candy. Very overpowering.

    On the plus side, it is still just as effective as a gel.

    Had a small shake (14g Pro/40g Carbs) at around 4:30, headed to the gym around 5:15 and got there at 5:30 (when I took the Stimul8)

    ME Upper

    Went in and warmed up really well, took approx. 45 minutes total.

    Warmup: Foam Roll Add/ITB/Quads, BB Mash Add./ITB/Quads
    Con. DL: 65x8, 95x5, 135x5, 185x3, 225x1, 275x1, 315x1

    Work Sets: 345x1, 365x1 (Heaviest single I've done, but heaviest set was the 335x5 for a est. max of 374), 375xF (Barely broke the floor, form deteriorated quickly)

    Goal was 375, didn't quite happen today but it will be doable (might even get more) by Aug. 3. Glutes were in pain after the 365 lol, overall I had a good day and am happy with 365. This will be my last heavy pull before the competition, the next time I pull will be for reps, and the lowest I will go will be for a 5 to ingrain the movement pattern as best as I can.

    Walking Lunges: BWx20(per)x3

    Good Morning: 185x5, 205x5, 225x5x3

    Bent Over BB Row: 135x8, 155x8x3

    Smoked. Back is a little tight (from the 375 attempt, felt great after 365) it isn't the lower back but is the mid back. Just muscular so I'm not worried about it right now. Overall, it was a killer session. I was sweating a good amount before finishing the warmup (hell, I was sweating from the foam rolling!) Don't particularly like failing during training, the 365 was a beach but I felt that 375 was attainable so I went for it. Have conditioning slotted for tomorrow, I won't be going to heavy but I plan to do some sled drags (or pushes) and hit my core. Bench Pressing on Wednesday, and I really need to ingrain this movement pattern before the meet. I have some ideas on openers, but that will depend on how my bench is on Wednesday.

    For tonight, I have an XL pizza and 3 grilled chicken breast that are going to be eaten (no, I'm not eating the pizza by myself lol. Probably only half). Time to recover!
