  2. Sheesh! I'm way behind on your log but it looks like you've steadily been kickin butt!!! Good job!

  3. Pretty good workout today. I just took half scoop Speed X3 at 6:10 + .5g Beta-Alanine, 1g Taurine. 6:30 35g whey shake + mixed fruit. 6:50 started Biceps/Triceps/Abs. This workout was at my home gym so I changed it up a little.

    4X wide grip BB curl 110 lbs, 7-10 reps
    4x reverse EZ curl bar 90 lbs, 7-9 reps
    10x strength band curls anchored behind me hitting long head 10 reps, started a set once a minute
    4x Seated EZ curl bar overhead tri press 80 lbs, 7-9 reps
    4x strength band tri pressdown 10-11 reps
    SS 1 minute jump rope, minimal rest
    3x DB tri kickbacks 30 lbs 8-9 reps, minimal rest while alternating arms
    1 Burnout set - bench dips 36 reps
    3x Windshield wipers, 30-34 reps
    SS Kneeling strength band crunch, 11-12 reps
    SS Mountain climbers, 30 sec rest

    Performance was good. Sipped on Purple Wraath intraworkout. I kept all rest periods under 90 sec. Still the same jittery energy. For me, Speed X3 is still not enhancing the workout experience any - no euphoria, no rage. All in all, same effects as before. I think Speed X3 would best suit me when I'm doing pure muscle building workouts - longer rest periods, higher weights, lower rep ranges - so I don't feel like I'm running around like a crazy person. I don't seem to be building up much of a tolerance taking this 3-4x a week.

  4. I have heard a few other loggers state that they did not build up a tolerance either.

  5. Fairly certain it's Yohimbe that I'm highly sensitive to. Researching the other ingredients, caffeine and Synephrine HCl seem to be the other major stimulants. C4 contains both of these and I can handle two scoops of it.

  6. Biceps getting sore less than 12 hours later, yeah buddy!

  7. Don't think I've had my biceps this sore two days later.

  9. Here's a short update from yesterday as this is from my phone while away for wedding. I did shoulders/abs yesterday morning, half scoop speed, 30mg caffeine, half gram BA, 1g taurine at 6am. 6:15 35 g whey shake + 1/4 cup raisins. 6:45 began workout which lasted one hour. Workout was very similar to last shoulder one only started off with front raises then shrugs then db press with 50lbs. Better mindset than b4 with the change. Hit press for 4x 11-16 reps. Pretty much did more weight or reps for everything. I had the uncomfortable over stimulated feeling for abs with cardio SS. Definitely wired through the afternoon. Traps are noticeably sore today, delts a little sore.

  10. Wouldn't recommend running six miles of nothing but hills in Georgia at noon..... could drink a whole gallon of Gatorade right now or of Lecheecks amino fusion ; )

  13. Great workout, swim/bis/tris, this morning even though I only got 7 hours of sleep. The last two weeks I focused more on weights. Now I have a triathlon in 6 weeks, so weight training will be secondary. 5:45am 1 scoop TSN cardio igniter. 6:25 hit the pool sipping on half scoop Speed X3, 1/3 scoop Purple Wraath, 23g whey. Here was the workout.

    500m warmup
    3x300m at race pace, 20 sec rest
    2x200m at race pace, 15 sec rest
    2x100m at race pace, 10 sec rest
    100m cool down

    It was a challenging swim workout taking about 45 min. I took 10 minutes to change, ate 1/4 cup raisins and hit the weights sipping on 2/3 scoop Purple Wraath. Here was the workout that lasted 40 minutes.

    4X wide grip BB curl 115 lbs, 6-9 reps
    4x reverse EZ curl bar 90 lbs, 7-9 reps
    4x DB overhead tri press 85 lbs, 7-9 reps
    4x cable tri pressdown 183 lbs, 7-9 reps
    3x cable D handle curls 37 lbs 13-15 reps
    SS cable tri kickbacks 17 lbs 16-17 reps NO REST

    Rest periods were little longer, 65-100 seconds. I enjoyed the effects of Speed X3 more today. Mixing it with whey seemed to smooth out the energy for me. I was actually able to jam to my music. I felt hardly any fatigue from my swim workout. I had a really good pump going on today, probably from the massive amount of carbs I ate over the weekend. I was only planning on doing 2 sets of that last superset but I still had some extra time and was feeling really good. I'm definitely not as jittery right now, however my heart still does feel slightly overstimulated sitting here.

  14. Looking swole!

  15. Definitely killed it yesterday. Back is sore from swimming. No DOMS in biceps, but my triceps are actually really sore. I guess for me DB tricep press > EZ curl bar overhead tricep press and cable tri pressdown > strength band tri pressdown.

    Already got in a 110 min 30 mile bike with 2x 15 min threshold pace intervals this morning with 8oz Red Bull + 100mg caffeine, 1g Beta-Alanine. 30 min moderate pace run at lunch. I will be sipping on some green tea + 1g Beta-Alanine, 1g Taurine soon. Always try to keep caffeine intake <= 300mg a day.

    Next Speed X3 day will be Thursday.

  16. Damn, triceps still sore today. I could have done without that for my swim today which was the same as Monday. However, my times were better today - probably because I got more sleep this time. Killer hour run planned today at lunch including 3x1 mile at hard effort - gonna be a HOT one!

  17. Ya its HOT out here as well the last few days.

  18. That run killed me. The first two mile intervals I was able to do around 7 min. The third mile I did in 9 min. I thought my head was going to explode from the heat. I'll be chugging water the rest of the day.

    Yikes!! That's rough!! Way to push through though! I hope your head feels better quick!

  20. So I decided to beat my legs into submission today...as if I hadn't already the previous days.....

    6:40am 80 min bike ride on 1 scoop TSN Cardio Igniter followed by whey shake and carbs
    9:15am big egg/ham/cheese/turkey bacon sandwich +brussels sprouts + small apple
    11:00am 30mg caffeine, .5g Beta-Alanine, 1g Taurine
    11:20 half scoop Speed X3
    11:30 easier 30 min run including 10 strides, 10 min break eating a roll of Smarties then 50 min of LEGS/abs

    4x BB lunges 145 lbs, 8-9 reps each leg
    4x standing calf raises holding a 50 lb DB, 17-20 reps
    3x single leg DB stiff legged deadlift 50 lbs, 9-11 reps
    3x strength band standing knee drives 10-11 reps
    3x Bosu trainer DB squats 50 lbs, 19-20 reps
    SS jacknifes 17-21 reps
    3x Ab wheel rolling side to side hitting obliques 7 reps each side

    I took the Speed X3 when I did so that it would effect me mostly for my leg workout since the run was somewhat easy. However, it wasn't as easy as I had hoped with the heat and fatigued legs. Plus I didn't want my breathing to get out of control and overheat running. I sipped on Purple Wraath intraworkout. The Speed X3 gave me plenty of drive to knock out the leg workout. No let down. However I was uncomfortably hot during my lift having not cooled off quick enough from the run. Performance was good. Still jittery. I kept the rest periods a little longer from 120 sec on lunges to 30 sec on calf raises. The longer rest periods are better for me on Speed X3 so I don't feel like a crazy person running around. I decided to add 3g creatine to my recovery shake today in hopes of not being sore for my big bike/run workout on Saturday. I don't normally take creatine while training for triathlons.

  21. That looks like a tough leg day.

  22. Legs are sore today but no where near what they could have been. However, I'll probably still be a little sore tomorrow. I may be switching out the single leg deadlifts for the less intense bosu ball hamstring curls. My lats were actually sore from those for this morning's swim, could have done without that. So here's how the this morning went. 5:50am 1 scoop TSN cardio igniter, 1g Taurine. 6:35 started the following 40 min swim workout.

    500m warmup
    2x300m at race pace, 20 sec rest
    2x200m at race pace, 15 sec rest
    2x100m at race pace, 10 sec rest
    100m cool down

    Same intense swim, just one less 300m interval. 1800m total. During the swim, I sipped on 6oz orange juice, 25g whey, half scoop Speed X3. It was another good swim performance wise even though I only got 7 hours sleep. I felt really good heading into my chest/back/shoulder workout. I took 10 min to change, eat 1/4 cup raisins and a jolly rancher Here's how the workout went which lasted 45 minutes:

    4x Incline Bench 205 lbs, 7-9 reps
    SS Reverse grip Hammer Strength High Row 180 lbs, 8-9 reps
    3X DB bench 90 lbs, 6-9 reps
    SS Seated cable row all of the weight for this machine, 14-15 reps
    3x Free Motion wide lat pull down 67 lbs, 8-10 reps
    SS High cable flys (same machine, same positioning) 43 lbs, 8-9 reps
    3x BB Shoulder press 145 lbs, 7-9 reps
    SS DB reverse flys 25 lbs, 9-11 reps
    SS DB alternating side/front raises 25 lbs, 12-14 reps

    The energy from Speed X3 came on nicely. Sipped on Purple Wraath intraworkout. I noticed the thermo effects after just the first SS. I was taking long rest periods 90-135 sec. So the thermo effects weren't making me uncomfortable like they have in the past. My breathing remained under control with the longer rest periods. I was pleased with the endurance I had this workout, performance was great even at the end, still felt fairly fresh. I'm sure my longer rest periods contributed to this. I had a feeling of confidence during the workout. I noticed myself jamming to my music a little more this time but not nearly as much as I sometimes do. My nutrition was on point today, normally I find myself getting hungry at some point when I don't eat before my swim. I hate eating before a swim, makes me feel sluggish/heavy. Once I got to work I noticed I was still a little jittery but I didn't have the racing feeling. I think I'll continue to mix the Speed X3 with whey when I can.

  23. Great workout today - swim/bis/tris. 8:15 big breakfast. 10:45 1 scoop TSN Cardio Igniter + 1g Taurine. 11:30 started my swim workout that lasted 40 minutes. Sipped on 24g whey, 8oz orange juice, 1/2 scoop Speed X3, 1/4 scoop Purple Wraath.

    500 Warm up
    4x200 with last 50 of each sprint, 30 sec rests
    50 easy
    4x150 with last 50 of each sprint, 20 sec rests
    50 easy

    2000 yards total. By the end, I was breathing fairly hard, not sure if it was from the Speed X3 or just the sprints. Performance was really good, minimal fatigue. 10 min break to change and eat 1/4 cup raisins. The following lift lasted 40 minutes.

    4X wide grip BB curl 115 lbs, 7-9 reps
    4x reverse EZ curl bar 95 lbs, 7-9 reps
    4x DB overhead tri press 85 lbs, 8-10 reps
    4x cable tri pressdown 191 lbs, 7-10 reps
    2x cable D handle curls 37 lbs 13-15 reps
    SS cable tri kickbacks 17 lbs 16-17 reps NO REST

    I was very happy with my performance during this lift especially triceps, saw some good increases. I was taking 90 sec breaks, which may have had something to do with it. Endurance was fantastic. I didn't feel cracked out. I seem to now be reacting hitting my sweet spot with my supplementation. Although, I probably didn't need a full scoop of Cardio Igniter today. I got 8+ hours sleep. The 1 scoop got me really jacked up for my swim. I had a good pump and vascularity during the lift. I had more than enough energy to finish the workout, would have done more but life was calling. I got home and did 1.5 hours of yard with lots of energy still, felt great. I couldn't tell if I was racing postworkout because I was still moving a lot. No racing feeling right now 4 hours later.

  24. Short intense bike/leg/ab workout yesterday. Only got 6 hours of sleep. 5:15am 110mg caffeine, 1g Beta-Alanine, 1g Taurine. 5:45 started 30 min bike ride including 7x 2.5 min all out with 75 sec rest, sipping on 8oz orange juice, 1/2 scoop Speed X3, 1/4 scoop Purple Wraath, 25g whey. 10 min break eating 1/4 cup raisins. By this time, I was feeling really good and couldn't tell I got less than optimal sleep. Here was the lift that lasted 40 minutes. I switched up the order and SS a little so it would go faster.

    4x BB lunges 155 lbs, 7 reps each leg
    3x strength band standing knee drives 10-11 reps
    3x single leg DB stiff legged deadlift 50 lbs, 9-11 reps
    4x standing calf raises holding a 50 lb DB, 18-21 reps
    SS jacknifes 17-21 reps
    3x Bosu trainer DB squats 50 lbs, 19-20 reps
    SS 3x Ab wheel rolling side to side hitting obliques 7-8 reps each side

    The only time I rested was during lunges for 90 seconds. Minimal rest the remainder of the workout switching between sides or SS. Never felt fatigued. I was just having to catch my breath a lot - I think the Speed X3 contributed to this. Heart was beating super fast too. I don't think I was able to "bang" out any more reps but I was feeling strong and confident during the workout. Even though I was rushed to get through my workout, I didn't get that racing feeling. I had a catch flight for vacation at 9:40am. I crashed on the flight. I'll probably be using Speed X3 for a couple open water endurance swims while on vacation.

  25. Fasted open water swim in the Gulf of Mexico yesterday on 1/2 scoop Speed X3.

    6 min warmup
    3x 9.5 min swim, 45 sec rest

    39 min total. I felt really strong swimming. Focus was good. I seem to be breathing harder than normal for just an endurance swim.
