  1. Sleep last night - 7 hours unbroken
    Dream status - do not remember
    Morning feeling - felt rested, and woke in the same position I fell asleep.

    Excellent sleep last night.

    Also finding dosing the BCAASAA prior to my morning run, is helping. My legs were very sore this morning..but as the day goes on they seem to be improving. My workout today though, albeit good was extremely long and full of interruptions. Guys digging up on the exterior of the house kept coming in the garage to ask me something. Making a 70 minutes workout take almost 2 hours.

    I have been missing all these updates. Killer workouts brother. Are you noticing anything from the MaxPump?

  3. Yes, the MaxPUMP is now saturated in me (seems to take 4-5 days). Today's arm workout provided some stellar pumps... I ran MaxPUMP / Ignite2 combo a couple of months ago and it was excellent. I will make note of the pump affect from now on in the log - just been focusing more on G8 and BCAASAA.

  6. I'm glad the bcaa in the morning is helping. Other then the DOMS it will help keep you out of that dreaded catabolic state and muscle waste. Keep rocking brother!

    Thanks Monte. Between the enhanced sleep I am getting from the G8 and the BCAASAA I am definitely recovering faster. DOMS are not as bad as they have been pre-stack, and workouts I feel are just as intense.

    MaxPUMP like always is in full swing now and the pumps are pretty sick. Ignite2 is pushing my performance/endurance and my runs haven't been better - just when I am ready to slow down Ignite kicks in.

    Excellent workout this morning. Mentally was in a really good mood and had a good mind/muscle connection. Physically everything felt on point. Strong pump in my legs. Picked up an Ab Wheel yesterday so that was my first time using one. Watched a youtube video and gave it a go.

    This evening (after a nice steak on the bbq) I will add in a second cardio session: 8km fast paced walk (2km of which is uphill).

    Back to work tomorrow after a 2 week break. Was a great holiday (just the wife and I got away to NYC for a few nights, and the rest of the time had some good quality family time)..

    Thanks 804. Tonight's LISS was pretty rough, especially the up hill portion. I suppose all that means is this morning was a very effective session!

    When its rough that means you are doing it right so the pre cardio bcaa I recommended is playing out nicely I see?

    The pre-cardio bcaa's has helped a lot. Runs have never been better. Thanks for that Monte.

  24. G8 dosing last night provided me with a solid 9 hours of sleep. Only woke once after about 6 hours, but quickly drifted back to sleep. My mood seems to be improving slightly too.

    Tonight is a day off G8, as today was strictly cardio. I did take BCAASAA prior to my 5km run at 9am, and completed my 8km LISS session.

    Tomorrow is Back and Shoulders. With the cardio bookending it.

  25. No G8 last night. Guess now I know what it is like to get spoiled, because last night was a horrible sleep. 4 hours, broken as hell, weird ass dreams. Woke with no desire to workout but of course did.

    Workout:

    8/27/13

    Day 4: Back and Shoulders Hypertrophy

    Warmup: 5km run (dosed BCAASAA prior to this run, chased it with Ignite2 and MaxPUMP)

    170x3

    Pulldowns (wide grip)
    200x12
    210x12
    220x10
