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
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

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
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
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
Warmup: Foam Rolling, LAX Ball, Bird Dogs, Work up to 315
LBBS: 315x1, 345x1 (+belt), 375xF, 375x1 (+wraps, matched PR), 380x1 (PR?, questionable)
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
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:
Pre: 3/4 Stimul8
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:
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).
