    Yeah, my second set was a little better about that but that first was awkward.

    Loved that stuff! Hope you guys get some solid loggers for it in there.


    And a late night workout update!


    Went to the gym at around 5 today, didn't leave until like 1030 lol.


    Did my usual 1 hour warmup/prehab work, started squatting. When I finished squatting and moved on to the first assistance lift one of the PL guys came over there and helped me out with some questions I had asked him earlier. He has a PhD in Physical Therapy and I had asked him if he had anything my wife could do for her hip (which I think is impinged) so he came by and talked to us for about an hour and gave us a list of exercises and showed us how to do them so that we could work that out. Then went back to the workout and finished up around 8 - 830 ish. Started talking to a guy that was out of the Navy and does X-fit competitively, he's trying to get stronger to make his WODs easier and we talked for an hour or so. I helped some of the guys he was training with with their Oly form, and then ran into an old football buddy from HS and we talked a little bit about PLing and competing and whatnot. He might start training with me, but we'll see about that.


    Anyway.....


    ME Lower (and my strength definitely took a hit lol)

    Pre: 1.5 Jack3d Micro, 4 Max Pump, 1 Green Magnitude
    Intra: BCAA/SAA

    Warmup: DeFranco Limber 11, Back Squat work up to 235 x 5

    Back Squat: 325 x 4, 345 x 4

    When you see the video the weight will look like less, I was using a 55# squat bar.

    Sumo Block Pulls: 275 x 6 (soft lockout), 315 x 6 (half soft, half good), 315 x 6 (good)

    Didn't watch the first video before going to the second, saw the soft lockouts in the second so I fixed it in the third.

    Might just be from not sumo DLing often.


    Front Squat w/ Chain: 185 +80 x 7, 135 +80 x 10

    Kroc Row: 100 x 15

    a1. Walking DB Lunge: 120 x 6, 120 x 8
    a2. Hypers: BW x 20 x 2

    Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kkEWbJysihc
    Donezo.


    Ended up filling my shaker with BCAA/SAA like 3 times during this bear of a workout. The first two tasted good, the last ended up being just water lol.

    I expect to be VERY sore tomorrow, but hopefully not.


    Also, introduced G8 again last night and slept like a BOSS. Super deep and restful sleep, suffice to say I am very pleased with this product so far.


    I'm still a little on the fence about SAAs but I cannot deny the fact that my recovery (intra set and daily) is much better with it than it was before using it.

    My lower body is sooo sore today though.



    Probably because I skipped my usual Active Recovery/Conditioning day......



    Still went in today and took care of business!


    ME Upper Sep 11

    Warmup: Simple 6, EFS pullapart Series x 1, Bench Press: work to 185 x 3

    2 Board Press: 205 x 3, 225 x 3, 245 x 2 (shoulder gave out, no pain. just....weird), 245 x 3 (PR), 255 x 3 (PR)

    And then I shut it down, probably coulda went to 265 but there will be time for that later down the road.


    DB Bench: 75 x 8, 85 x 8 (PR), 90 x 6 (PR)

    a1. Pendlay Row: 185 x 8 x 4
    a2. SG High Pull: 135 x 6, 155 x 6, 135 x 6

    The 155's were the ugliest things that ever happened so I dropped it back down.

    b1. Swiss Bar French Press: 55 x 10 x 2
    b2. Swiss Bar OHP: 125 x 3, 115 x 5

    First time using the Swiss Bar, it was definitely weird. I liked it though, the first set of OHP were sketchy, so I dropped the weight. The French Presses were hard to get a hang of, not sure how I feel about them but they did take a lot of stress off the elbows.

    Hammer Curl: 35 x 10, 30 x 10

    EFS Pullapart Series x 1

    http://youtu.be/pfB1vnncEKU : Video won't be live for a little while.

    And that was that.

    RE Lower.


    Deadlifts on today's rotation, and it is REALLY hard to get motivated for sets of 12 on deadlift.



    Warmup: Mashing Lower Body, Dynamic Hip work, Work up to 225 x 6 DL


    Con. DL: 275 x 12 x 2

    Only got the first on video. The second was even worse, almost quit at 11 but got back down and pulled the last rep. That there transcendent rep.

    Cambered Bar Good Morning: 185 x 6, 205 x 6 x 2

    Assuming a 45# bar, it may have been 55#.

    Cambered bar Squats: 225 x 10 x 2

    Hard.


    Super sore today still. Didn't feel that sore until I got to the bottom of the squats, had some major butt winking going on. This isn't normally an issue, so I'm not sure if it's just a little tightness today that didn't get worked out or if it's a technical thing with the cambered bar.

    Had some core stuff planned but today's entire workout was a mental battle and we were BEAT down. Plan to hit it tomorrow with the Strongman stuff we'll be doing for conditioning.


    Today's video: http://youtu.be/chzLKNW4y54




    Notes: Real sore right now. Tri's are pretty sore, lower body is still pretty sore from Monday. Went up to a whole scoop last night, slept a lot better than the 3/4 scoop I had been using, or more accurately fell asleep better.

    I notice some loggers notice that it puts them out, but I can't say I've had that happen. It doesn't put me out, but it does improve my sleep quality.

    Strongman Conditioning:


    Warmup: Foam Rolling Lower, Stretch where Needed

    Pre: 4 Max Pump, 1.5 Jack3d Micro
    Intra: BCAA/SAA

    Hang Clean: 121 x 2 x 2, 142 x 2, 161 x 2 (Easy, but my technique needs work)

    Superset last two sets with

    Kneeling Rollouts: BW x 8 x 2 (got some core cramping on the second set)

    1 Arm DB Press: 50 x 1, 70 x 1 (plus handle weight)

    Technique needs work on these too.

    MB throw ---> Sprint: 10# x 20yds x 4
    LAX Ball Snatch : 20yds x 3 (2 caught, 1 missed)

    Drop the LAX ball initiates the sprint, catch it before the second bounce.

    Keg Style Tire Throw: Tire x 6 x 2

    Oh yeah, this happened.

    Farmer's carry w/o clamp: 105 x 50 yds

    Lost the weight twice, clamps next time.

    http://youtu.be/DX9A_clwzO4

    Consolidated the Wife's and my videos today. Will be up sometime later tonight for you guys to check tomorrow, need more hip extension on them cleans.


    Had some cramping with the rollouts today, which always happens when I do them. Not as bad as it has been before, but still. Feeling good today, not even as sore as I expected to be. A little soreness in the hammies today, but nothing major.

    Nice session. I read somewhere that Deion Sanders used to do the ball snatches with a tennis ball from 15 yards. I tried it and made it like 6 or 7.

    RE Upper today.


    Went for the BW bench challenge to start it off.


    Warmup: Simple 6, EFS Pullapart Series Bench up to 165 x 3

    Pre: 2 Jack3d Micro, 4 Max Pump, 1 Green Magnitude
    Intra: BCAA/SAA

    Bench Press: 185 x 15

    No Arch Bench Press: 205 x 6, 185 x 8

    Swiss Bar Z Press: 85 x 6, 95 x 6, 105 x 6

    a1. Ball Pull-up: BW x 10 x 2, BW x 8
    a2. HS Low Row: 140 x 10 x 3

    Skullcrusher: 70 x 5 x 2, 70 x 4

    Poundstone Curl: Bar x 40

    http://youtu.be/didLF0etRL4

    Pumped up today. The bench presses were good today, heavy but that's to be expected with the increased ROM. No soreness today, not too tight either. Swiss bar definitely made the Z Press a little harder today.

    No, although I almost went back on one of the reps.

    The Swiss bar adds a little more stability to it because of the way it likes to turn.

    Hm. I thought the thickness of it would move the COG away from you. I've never used one.

    By stability I meant stability required to execute the lift (just read what I wrote and it didn't make sense.)

    It almost knocked me backwards one time today, but it likes to rotate back and forth (when holding the center of the vertical bars) which adds a lot of wrist/shoulder stability requirement to do.


    COG didn't feel much different but that could be just me compensating for it subconsciously.

    I figured you meant you needed more stability. Wrist and shoulder stability is pretty good, though. I've yet to see someone with an impressive bench that didn't have impressive forearms and delts.

    Mon- ME Lower


    Warm-up: Limber 11, Work up to 185 x 3

    Pre: 2 Jack3d Micro, 4 Max Pump, 1 Green Magnitude
    Intra: 1.5 BCAA/SAA


    Box Squat: 225 x 3, 255 x 3, 275 x 3 (PR)

    Big PR with straight weight, form looked good. Shins could have been a little more vertical last set but everything else looked right today.

    High Bar Oly Squat: 225 x 6, 255 x 6, 285 x 6

    Good Morning w/ Oly Shoe: 225 x 8, 205 x 10

    Missed my prescribe reps first set, dropped the weight and hit the next set.

    Meadows Rows: 50 x 15

    a1. Walking DB Lunge: 120 (2 60's) x 8 x 2 (per leg)
    a2. Hypers: +45 x 15 x 2

    Video will be up in ~10 minutes: http://youtu.be/ffaWxzxvMB4


    Ouch. Hurtin today, legs were worn out after this one. Ended up refilling my cup and putting more BCAA in it after the GM's, finished that right after the SS.


    Feeling good lately, very little DOMS if any at all for most of the latter half of the week. Sleep has been good, I've used just under 1 scoop the last couple times I've used it. It hits a lot harder with 1 scoop than 1/2. Still tastes awful, but it's easier to put down after using it for a little while. Figure I have a couple days worth of product left, maybe a little more. So I will most likely have the final reviews up by the end of the week.

    The Freaks are currently working on changing up the flavoring system with G8.
    Phenibut is soooooo hard to mask hence the reasoning behind most sleep aids being in capsule form. We're gonna nail it though.

    yeah when I was talking with the owners and told them I mix a scoop of apple-fusion BCAA+SAA with my G8, they were like
    got them to thinking and wondering why they hadn't thought of it before, is an easy fix and low-cost move to make....so, I believe we will see this apple-fusion flav G8 coming, is my guess..
    we are also going to be packaging with 40 servings per container now, instead of 20 -- at no addtl cost increase!

    Sept 17 : Speed Work


    Warm-up: Mash IT Band, Add., Ham, Quad. LAX Ball Glute. Dynamic Track Warmup


    Pre: 1 Scoop Jack3d Micro, 4 Max Pump, 1 Green Mag
    Intra: BCAA/SAA

    Step Back Sprints: 5 x 30 yds

    Med. Ball Chases: 5 x 30 yds

    Broad Jump -> Sprint: 4 x 15 yds

    LAX Ball Catches: 5 x 20 yds.

    Got 1 today, missed the other 4. Dang.

    Speed Work Sept 17 - YouTube

    Notes: Feeling pretty good today, a little soreness in the glutes from yesterday but barely noticeable. Didn't take much to get warm today so we didn't waste any time before getting started. Everything was pretty good, reaction time could have been better, probably woulda caught more of them if it was.

    cool mang
    yeah I been lobbying for this since I got this position, but for a minute the owners were just adamant that this is how it was gonna be done, and were really amazed and boggled when I told them no other company was requiring such maneuvers
    while I understand the premise, and it's really not too big a deal in the overall scheme of things -- when you're me or one of our reps, and you're doing as many promos as we do, it gets tedious as hell to keep track of these things..was driving me nuts!

    anyway, glad you aer happy camper - I expect to see you in our next promo thread now
