    Yesterday's update:

    Conditioning-

    Pre: 4 Caps Max Pump
    Intra: 1 Scoop BCAA/SAA

    Warm-up: Limber 11

    6 x Hill Sprints
    2 x Down Hill Sprints

    Felt good, was running fast and pouring off sweat. Nothing special, but got my legs feeling good for today and got my heart rate up.

    ME Upper:

    Pre: 4 Caps Max Pump, 1 Scoop Green Magnitude, 1.5 Scoop Jack3d Micro

    Intra: BCAA/SAA (I'm really enjoying this stuff thus far, I feel like I'm recovering very well at this point.)

    Warm-Up: Simple 6, Band work for the RC

    Work up to 205 x 2

    Work sets: Bench Press: 225 x 2, 245 x 1 (failed on second)

    Dips: +45 x 8 x 2, BW x 8 (tendinitis flare up today, really messed with my dips)

    a1. Kroc Row: 80 x 12 x 3
    a2. Cable Pull Apart: 20 x 10 x 3

    b1. DB French Press: 60 x 8, 70 x 6
    b2. Lateral Raise: 25 x 8 x 2

    Poundstone Curl: Bar x 35 (Holy christ I'm a little girl, these hurt a lot! P.S. not tendinitis pain, the pump)

    Felt good, wanted 245 x 2 but it wasn't gonna happen today. Meh, not worried about it. Everything went pretty well, not feeling any worse for the wear right now. Actually feeling really good, no aches or pains right now. We'll see how I'm feeling tomorrow DLing for Reps.... :shudder:

    My brother thought they were gonna be easy and he'd get 100.

    He did 25.

    I thought I'd get 50.

    Your brother is going to be sore again.

    As far as the BCAA/SAA, it's a solid product. I noticed a difference from what I was using prior to it and that was enough to make me a believer.
    Folks can point to as many studies as they want to discredit something, but if it works, it works.

    They're frickin hard. I did them with the squat bar the other day just because. I think I got 20. I squeeze at the top for the first few, then pound straight through, and then start cheating. Cheat curls with the bar....

    I didn't do any cheating, or crazy squeezing.

    Slight lean forward at the waist throughout the entire exercise and just keep pumping them out until I couldn't.

    I might have to pump them out this next time. I'm so conditioned to make light weights heavy from Joe Weider's brainwashing.

    RE Lower day, how I despise thee.....


    Aug 22.

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

    Warm-up: Limber 11, Simple 6 Con. Deadlift work up to 315 x 3

    Work: 335 x 8 x 2

    Good Mornings: 225 x 6, 245 x 6, 265 x 6

    a1. Landmine Barbell Twist: 20 x 6, 20 x 8 (per side)
    a2. Front Foot Elevated Split Squat: 60 x 8 x 2 (per leg)
    a3. Standing Cable Crunch: 70 x 10, 80 x 10

    And done. The Deadlifts were BRUTAL, and I got both sets on video. Some were good, some were ugly. But, I think they are all white lights


    Upper back was TIGHT today, from the work yesterday. Feeling good, hammies and glutes are DONE. And I really felt them on my sets of DL, no issues with lower back cramping (I rarely, if ever, have this kind of issue). So I'm feeling good.

    Bout to eat some spaghetti and meatballs (pictures come later, they're on the phone) and the videos are uploading so those will get posted in a little bit.


    Either tonight, or possibly tomorrow, I will give a halfway update on what I'm noticing from the supps I'm taking.

    Endurance: My endurance is up right now, in comparison to my baseline endurance, it has been very obviously improved since starting this log. I would attribute most of this to the betaine and the nitrates from Max Pump (and a little extra TMG from Green Mag) but the intra set recovery that I get from the BCAA/SAA is most definitely adding to this.

    Strength: I'm getting consistently stronger, which could very easily be a sign that I'm recovering well enough to continue to add weight to the bar. Regardless, I think the BCAA/SAA and Max Pump are definitely helping here (ergogenic benefits from the acute dosage, and overall saturation, of the nitrates and betaine).

    Recovery: Well, this is the one we're all here for isn't it? I'm recovering very quickly, at this point it would seem that I recover a little faster than I do when I regularly train with BCAA + Carb mixture intra training. I expected my performance to take a bit of a shot from getting rid of the carbs intra workout, but so far it hasn't made much of a difference. Besides that; I just feel recharged when I drink it in between sets. Hard to explain really.

    Rest: Ok, so this one has to be about as important as recovery. I sleep extremely deeply on the nights I use the G8. I noticed some other loggers say they get a calming effect from it, and I can say that I've noticed that a handful of times, but usually not. It doesn't knock me straight out like it does for some of the other loggers (and just people that have used it in general), but when I do fall asleep I don't wake up for ANYTHING and I feel refreshed in the morning when I wake up. The nights I don't use it, I sleep throughout the night still but I always wake up feeling tired and lethargic.

    Sounds like a truly winning combination of supps you're taking in right now and it's good that you're enjoying them. Remember a while back when I told you that I truly felt the difference between the different aminos that I had taken? I hope that you're seeing the same difference. Seems like you are.

    You're the only reason I even wanted to try them.

    I, like many others on here, really didn't expect anything from an SAA blend and expected anything I noticed to be on par with my regular usage of BCAA.

    RE Upper:


    Aug 25

    Pre: 1.5 Scoop Jack3d AF, 3 caps Max Pump, 1 Scoop Green Magnitude
    Intra: BCAA/SAA

    Warm-up: Simple 6, Band work

    Floor Press: 185 x 8 x 2, 185 x 6

    http://youtu.be/TwxKyZIucz8

    DB Bench: 60 x 6, 75 x 6, 80 x 6

    http://youtu.be/rN6VdUDtEgw

    a1. WG Pull-up: BW x 8, BW x 6 NG Pull Up: BW x 8 x 2
    a2. High Pull Low Row: 60 x 12, 50 x 12 x 3

    NG DB OHP: 55 x 6, 60 x 5

    b1. Hammer Curl: 20 x 15 x 2
    b2. Cable Ext. Rot. : 10 x 15 x 2


    And done.


    Notes: No G8 last night, and it was missed. I woke up a few times in the middle of the night, and once in the early part of the morning. Still got a solid 8 hours (I always do nowadays) but it wasn't nearly as deep and restful as the nights that I use the G8.

    Besides that, everything felt good today. No real aches or pains, that tendinitis bugged me for the DB Bench but it went away after the prehab/rehab stuff at the end. Barely a memory right now. Shoulders feel goooood, no RC troubles *knock on wood*.

    And done.

    Notes: No G8 last night, and it was missed. I woke up a few times in the middle of the night, and once in the early part of the morning. Still got a solid 8 hours (I always do nowadays) but it wasn't nearly as deep and restful as the nights that I use the G8.

    Besides that, everything felt good today. No real aches or pains, that tendinitis bugged me for the DB Bench but it went away after the prehab/rehab stuff at the end. Barely a memory right now. Shoulders feel goooood, no RC troubles *knock on wood*.
    Great vids Jim and good feedback as normal.

    Feeling good, may have strained my brachialis a week or so ago. I've been icing and icy hotting it and it feels alright, just a little bit of soreness when I forget to do that. I may have to take some NSAIDS to help with the healing process, but it isn't really an issue and is very mild.

    Also, important note, I am heading out of state tomorrow (I've been contemplating it for a while) but made the decision today that I'm gonna do it. Heading up to MI to visit my Uncle, have him meet my wife, and spend some time together (he isn't doing well). So I will very possibly do some sort of conditioning while I'm there (and will update to the best of my ability) but I'm basically gonna use this week as a deload since I don't expect to be able to train while I'm there.
