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)
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!

One strong workout after another this week. Didn't get in any conditioning yesterday, but went in today trying to get confident in my Bench Press and accomplished it.
Had a great workout today though! Took some extra time warming up, working my groove on the bench press today. It's been a while since I've benched (doing OHP) so I had to make sure I could do it right.
Pre: 3/4 - 1 Scoop Stimul8
Warmup: Foam Roll Mid Back (arch around roller), LAX Ball Pec/Rear Delt/Bicep, Band Pull Aparts, 'Y' Pull Aparts,
Bench Press: 45x10 (alternating grips to find my strongest), 135x10 (alternating grips, and playing with leg position), 185x4 (felt off), 135x5 (work the groove a little more)
Work Sets: +wrist wrap 205x2, 215x2, 225x2 (PR, +1 rep) Note: First with 225 was good, elbows flared early on second rep but I still completed it.
Close Grip Bench: 155x15, 155x12, 155x10
a1. T-Bar Row: 140x10, 230x10x2
a2. High Pulley Face Pull: 100x10, 120x10x3
b1. Chest Supported HG Shrugs: 70x15, 90x15, 115x15 (on the Chest Supported TBar setup)
b2. BB Drag Curls: 60x8x3
Notes: Sweating a lot. The biceps were pumped during the first superset, which made the contraction on the face pulls ridiculous. The first superset was about 30 seconds between each exercise going from on to the other and back. The second superset was with about 1 minute between supersets and 15 seconds between the exercises in the superset. Had a lot of energy today and focus was on point. Finally starting to get it together with the bench press, all reps were done with a complete stop and as explosive of a turn around as possible, 225 was smooth. Went for 230 but lost it on the way down (turned into a bounce, so I scrubbed it and had the spotter take it). Leg drive felt good (for the first time ever) and it came up quick off of my chest. This is good, because I needed this day to work well so I could have some ideas on what to open with on the 3rd. As with the DL, this is my last heavy bench, the rest will be for 4-5 at the lowest.

Also, I've noticed over the past few days that I am sweating more during the regular day as well. Like dripping off my brow at work, which isn't a regular thing for me.
So, I think its safe to say that the rise in body temp is not necessarily dose dependent after using it regularly.

Yeah.....buy chicken and cook it immediately and taste it. Then buy chicken freeze it for a few days and cook....toatly differant texture and taste. Only time I freeze is if I find a good deal and stock up. Actually waste less not freezing and buying every two days because I make sure to eat what I buy before it goes bad.
