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.

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.

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!

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.

nice work JB - lovin the vids (still)!
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

Lol, I don't even know what that means....
Anyway, just under a full scoop last night. Didn't fall asleep for hours, but slept like the dead once I finally went under. Which seems to be the norm.
Warmup: Simple 6, EFS Pullapart Series x 1
Pre: 4 Max Pump, 2 Jack3d Micro, 1 Green Magnitude
Intra: 1 BCAA/SAA
Floor Press: 205 x 2, 225 x 2, 235 x 2 (with some major butt lift, so 225 x 2 is the heaviest I did right)
Incline Bench Press: 135 x 6, 155 x 6, 175 x 4, 155 x 6
a1. Fat Bar Cable Row: 100 x 8, 120 x 8, 140 x 8
a2. High Pulley Face Pull: 90 x 12, 110 x 12 x 2
b1. 1 Arm Landmine Press: 50 x 8, 75 x 8
b2. Band Pushdown: Green x 15 x 2
1 Arm Rope Curl: 30 x 10, 40 x 10
Good workout. Oh and CHECK OUT THAT SHIRT! Hadn't worn it for a while, but I found it today and wore it.
Pumped up, and those facepulls were ridiculously painful. Which can be seen by my facial expressions, band pushdowns were no better for this.
Last set of the Landmine Presses were a little ugly, but whatever. Lower the weight next time and do them better.

Dude, whatever that camera was doing was making me seasick, and I've put in some boat time. Have you tried floor pressing with your legs flat? It eliminates the leg drive, but it can be a little too unstable for a ME day. Looked like those inclines were tough to stabilize. Probably a good thing to keep working on. I need to do, like, thousands of inclines. I used to be excellent at them.
09-18-2013, 09:58 PM
I did floor press with legs flat leading up to it, but the squat stands were moved in the way so I couldn't extend them out.
My inclines or hers?
We hadn't inclined in a while, and the bar hurt her shoulder so she switched to dumbbells. Her later sets were better, but she didn't want them on video.
09-18-2013, 10:09 PM
I was referring to yours. See your elbows swinging back and forth under the bar? It's subtle, but it's there. A hard set of dumbbell pressing will always nuke the stabilizers.
