  2. Day 17 (August 6th): Legs, Lower back

    Took Max Pump and Ignite 2 around 12:30pm and entered the gym at 1pm.

    Well I started off with squats and was weary of my lower back/tailbone since it has given me issues. Started off with a few sets at 180, 220, 270 and no issues. I ended up getting all the way to 350. Still no issues but I stopped there. Let's just say this had a delayed effect. Over an hour into the workout my old injury smacked me in the forehead and asked me what I was thinking. Yes, I need to give things a bit more time and I need to learn from this. Anyway here is everything I did before I hobbled my butt out of the gym and into the shower.


    Squats: 5 sets of 7

    Deadlifts 3 sets of 7

    Hyperextensions: 3 sets of 8

    Leg Curl: 3 sets of 8

    Floor Barbell Calf Raise: 3 sets of 8

    Cable Calf Raise: 2 sets of 8

    Walking Barbell Lunge: 2 sets of 8

    Dumbbell Step Up: 2 sets of 8


    Left the gym at 2:15, hit the shower, found a bottle of motrin and got intimate with some ice packs on the lower back.

    Moved my shoulder exercises to Wed. Had to call this one a bit short. Take care all.

    Thanks and its all good. The benefits I have got from MP and IG2 have made me want to be in the gym due to the great progress.I will design my upcoming workout around my back issues and will keep this ball rolling. I have decided to take the day off but I wont less this stuff my nor will I be stupid and injure myself further.This has all been a learning process. I plan to take this in stride and move on. Of course I say this now as I sit in my seat with ice packs but yea

  5. Quick Update:

    I had a sudden business trip pop up. I have the last couple days of blog entries on the computer at home ready to be submitted (after a quick proof read) but wont be able to submit it till late tonight/tomorrow morning when I get back. Just wanted you guys to know I'm still on the ball working out Just had business kick up the last couple days that required some hella overtime to be done on some websites.

    Will talk soon.

  6. Day 18 (August 7th): Recovery for my back.


    Took Max Pump and Ignite 2 at 7:00 am to start my day. Also took some motrin periodically throughout the day and used ice often. I have to get my lower back better since man does it suck trying to sleep even.


    Today I had a Hurley shirt on and had a lady ask how long have I been working out and even made a comment about the veins in my right arm sticking out. Now I have never had a person make a comment that specific about my veins but I'll take what I can.


    My energy was good throughout my morning and afternoon. Not bad since I had such little sleep the night before from the pain. Sucks when you have to sleep in the fetal position to relieve stress off of that lower tailbone area.

  7. Day 19 (August 8th): Traps and Lats

    Max Pump and Ignite 2 at 8:00 am and gym time at 8:30 am.

    I normally don't dedicate a gym session just to this and heck I probably overlook these muscle groups a bit but I'm trying not to over do the lower back since its still recovering.


    Close Grip Pull Up: 3 sets x 10

    Reverse Grip Lat Pull Down: 3 sets x 10

    Straight Arm Lat Pull Down: 3 sets x 10

    Cable Shrug: 3 sets x 10

    Cable Upright Row: 3 sets x 10

    Seated Dumbbell Shrug: 3 sets x 10

    Exercise Bike: 20 minutes

    My energy levels remained high and the back didn't bother me too much while riding the bike which I thought would be an issue.

    On some of my exercises today I did a new thing where I would hold the movement for 10-30 seconds before I released. Only did that to change things up but it did give me quite a bit more of that burn feeling by the time I was done.

    Note: Sorry for the extra amount of editing I'm having to do. The sites editor built into the replying/posting doesnt seem to like my chrome browser lately so have to fire up ole' IE.

  8. Day 20 (August 9th): Chest and Biceps

    I took Max Pump and Ignite 2 at 7:30am and hit the gym at 8am.

    Dumbbell Floor Press: 5 sets of 10

    Reverse Grip Incline Bench Press: 5 sets of 10

    Chest Dip: 5 sets of 10

    Wide Grip Standing Barbell Curl: 4 sets of 10

    Dumbbell Preacher Curl: 4 sets of 10

    Standing Hammer Curl: 4 sets of 10

    Treadmill: 20 minutes @ flat incline 4mph

    Endurance was up there during this workout. I love doing Chest and Bi's. I think it has alot to do how intimidated I was by bench presses back in January when I started doing them. I remember doing 100 lbs twice and thought wow i'm I pathetic. Nothing feels better than knowing you have bettered yourself and worked hard to accomplish it. Today at the end of my chest exercises I did throw in just a standard bench press and was able to do 220 6x. Not bad considering I had thought I fatigued that muscle group pretty well at that point.

    Chest was looking full at the end of my workout and had a a long vein going down my left bicep that I don't recall seeing before. As Hannibal would say "I love it when a plan comes together." (I hope you get that reference, well some of you ).

  9. Day 21 (August 10th): Cardio

    I mixed in some Ignite 2 with my protein shake and took it with Max Pump at 8am. Got in the gym at 8:45 am.

    Well, my back issue set me back a bit this week but I am proud of myself. In the past I typically would of had the all or nothing thinking and would of said "Well, back hurts, might as well wait a week or two before I lift again".

    I planned my exercises around my back and made sure to keep ice on it and take motrin as needed.

    I am hoping to do some squatting later next week but will do much lighter weights than usual. I'm thinking nothing higher than 200lbs. I have to strengthen those muscles and just be safe.


    Treadmill: 20 minutes @ 3.8 mph

    Exercise Bike: 15 minutes @ medium intensity

    Jump Rope: Minute on, Minute off, for about 10 minutes

    Treadmill: 5 minutes @ 4.8 mph



    Although I usually get tired quickly during cardio, my energy levels stayed with my during my workout even if my legs asked me "are we done yet?". It may not seem like much of a workout but cardio always kicks my butt.

    The endurance and energy combo that I'm getting from Max Pump and Ignite 2 have kept me able to be motivated this week despite the hold backs. I'm glad I have them in my arsenal.

    Sunday will be my day off. Going to take it easy. Thanks for watching

  10. Day 22 (August 11th): Day Off


    I got up late this morning but was very tired and got in bed late.

    I just took my Max Pump and Ignite 2 with my breakfast. I have some chores to do but all in all it's going to be an easy day.

    Hope everyone is having a good weekend. Later Bros!

  16. Looking good in here brosef.

    Ignite+protein? Um, what flavor protein? I can't see myself slugging down a chocolate shake with some berry flavored ignite, but hell, if it works...

    Lol Ok well its 2 scoops of chocolate protein in a shaker with water. The chocolate is strong enough that the berry Ignite isnt so bad. Some days I will mix them seperate then some days I'm like screw it.

    Just think a chocolate sundae with raspberry or cherry syrup on top. Lately I have a second shake around 4pm if my protein isn't up to par for that day (without the Ignite 2 at that point though).

    Just did an intensive 2 hour workout in the gym. Going to lunch. Will post my log later this evening. Thanks for chiming in guys so that I know someone is watching at least.

  19. That sounds pretty good to be honest and im looking forward to tonights update.

    Dont worry bro, were always watching and supporting, its what we do!

  22. Day 23 (August 12th): Middle Back, Traps, Lats, Cardio


    I took Max Pump and Ignite 2 at 9:00 am and got in the gym at 9:45 am.


    Close Grip Bent Over Row: 3 sets of 10


    Reverse Grip Bent Over Row: 3 sets of 10


    Seated Cable Row: 3 sets of 10


    Close Grip Pull Up: 3 sets of 10


    Straight Arm Lat Pull Down: 3 sets of 10


    Lat Pull Down: 3 sets of 10


    Cable Upright Row: 3 sets of 10


    Seated Dumbbell Shrug: 3 sets of 10


    Behind The Back Barbell Shrug: 3 sets of 10


    Treadmill: 30 minutes at 3.2 mph


    I ended up being in the gym 2 hours today. It felt like one of my better workouts that I have had in a while.

    Ended up consuming 1970 calories today. I'm having Chinese buffet on Thursday for lunch so working extra hard this week to prepare.

    My endurance in the gym today was off the hook. Over time I'm noticing more separation in my neck, traps, and shoulders. Obviously a good thing but wonder if its just how it goes over time with working out those muscles or a combination of also losing a bit of fat. Regardless I'm liking the look even though I have a long way to go. It's all about the journey. Back muscles seemed a bit full from what I saw in the area. Not much vascularity was going on back there but I got more fat to lose before I get the results I'm looking for. Do lats even get veiny?

    Last year I went to the chiropractor over 16 times. This year I have been once.

    Lower back feel just about healed up. Going to touch on some squats tomorrow maybe. If it was a date, then I might get to second base with some squats. I'm not going to overdue it this time since spending 5 days with lower back pain was not fun.

    Night all!

  23. Yeah lats get veiny

  24. Even light squats in the higher rep range will pay dividends. If you're worried about reaggravating a pre existing condition, drop some weight (40-60% of 1RM range) and add more reps and sets. 10x10 is boring, but hard, and is a moneymaker.

    Thanks for the advice on the squats. I decided to hold up on squats till tomorrow but did get a workout in today.

    I will post on my workout a bit later. It's about lunch time and me so hungry
