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

    When breathing, you really have to turn you're head further to the sky in case there is a wave coming. Quite different from swimming in a pool!

  3. Speed X3 is the best pre-workout I have tried so far. Lecheek hasn't disappointed me yet!

    LOG:GOT DAMN SILVER BACK TRAINING
    NO EXCUSES JUST RESULTS

  4. Morning fasted swim/run workout today. 7:05am half scoop Speed X3. 7:45 started swimming. Right before I hopped in the water, I chewed up 1/2 caffeine pill for 100mg caffeine. It was just a long open water endurance swim today - 4 min warm up, 35 min non-stop swim. Endurance was GREAT. I noticed a slight increase in breathing rate. I could have done without the thermo effects today, Gulf of Mexico is really warm. I noticed good focus. Run was really good:

    5 min easy
    4x 2 min hard, 2 min easy
    2 min hard
    1 min easy
    1 min sprint

    Total 26 min. I noticed really good recovery during the easy portions. Sitting here at 2:30, I still notice quit a bit of energy and that's with 2 beers in me The jitters weren't apparent today but I haven't really been sitting still until just now.

  5. Fasted endurance 7 mile run this morning on 8 hours of sleep. This sounds crazy but it wasn't. I had a big dinner the night before and a generous serving of frozen yogurt as well, never got hungry. 6:10am half scoop Speed X3, 100 mg caffeine, 1/2g Beta-Alanine. 6:35 started running. I felt really good the first 2 miles before I started getting hot. I couldn't distinguish between the thermo effects and the extreme humidity this morning. Endurance was great, breathing remained under control. This was the farthest I had run all season. I kept up 8:50 min miles. I had a decent kick left in me for the last mile. Endurance-wise I recovered well and was ready to go again an hour later, probably would have got injury if I had done so. Sitting in church at 11:00 I could feel my heart thumping a little, nothing crazy. Good workout!

  6. Back from vacation! Pretty good bike/upper body workout today on a little less than 8 hours of sleep. 5:55am 1 scoop TSN Cardio Ingiter. 6:30 25 mile bike ride including 3x15 min mod-hard intervals. Sipped on 25g whey, half scoop Speed X3, 8 oz orange juice. Ate a granola bar 3/4 of the way through. Ride ended up being 85 min. Finished strong with lots of energy. Took 10 min to change, then performed the following workout which took 45 min.

    3x Incline Bench 205 lbs, 7-10 reps
    3X Reverse grip Hammer Strength High Row 185 lbs, 8-9 reps
    3X DB bench 90 lbs, 6-9 reps
    SS Free Motion wide lat pull down 67 lbs, 9-10 reps
    3x BB Shoulder press 145 lbs, 8 reps
    SS DB reverse flys 25 lbs, 11-12 reps
    SS DB alternating side/front raises 25 lbs, 12-14 reps
    3x wide grip BB curl 115 lbs, 6-8 reps
    SS DB overhead tri press 85 lbs, 8 reps
    3x reverse EZ curl bar 95 lbs, 7-9 reps
    SS cable tri pressdown 185 lbs, 8 reps

    I sipped on Purple Wraath intraworkout. I was a little out of breath with all of the supersets and limiting my rest to 80 seconds. Great energy throughout the workout, decent pump. Endurance was awesome as usual, felt strong the whole time, no let down.

    I'm just under 4 weeks out from my next triathlon. I'll be taking Speed X3 just 3-4 times a week now - upper body lift, lower body lift, endurance cardio session(s). I will do a final review and end my log in 3 weeks to take a week off of stims before my race on 7/27.

  7. Really good run/lift today on almost 8 hours of sleep. 6:10 100mg caffeine, 1g Taurine, 1/2g Beta-Alanine. 6:40 1/2 scoop Speed X3, 24g whey. 6:45 6 mile that took 49:45:

    1st half - include 5x1 min hard, 1 min easy - averaged 8.5 min miles
    2nd half - steady mod-hard pace - averaged 8 min miles

    Really happy with my time, significantly faster than my 6 mile run in Florida, although it was a little cooler and definitely less humid. My legs were even still a little fatigue from yesterday's bike ride. Breathing remained controlled. I did not notice the thermo effects. Once I got back I still felt ready to tackle my workout. Took a 10 min break to eat 1/2 Panera scone, 1 Lindor truffle, and a few Sprees - YUM! Here's how the lift went which took 45 minutes sipping on Purple Wraath:

    3x BB lunges 155 lbs, 7-9 reps each leg, rest 2 min
    3x standing calf raises holding a 50 lb DB, 17-22 reps, rest 45 sec
    3x Bosu ball hamstring curls, 10-13 reps, rest 45 sec
    3x strength band standing knee drives 11-12 reps, minimal rest to switch bands
    3x Bosu trainer DB squats 50 lbs, 19-20 reps
    SS jacknifes 20-25 reps, rest 45 sec
    3x Ab wheel rolling side to side hitting obliques 7 reps each side, rest 45 sec

    I was very pleased with my performance considering this lift was after a long run. I got a couple more lunges compared to the prior lift. I did swap out the single leg deadlifts for the Bosu ball curls, I just needed something less intense at this point in my triathlon training. I still had plenty of energy post workout, a little jittery, no crash. I was pleased with my supplementation/nutrition this workout.

  8. Really good run yesterday performance-wise, only got 6.5 hours sleep. I did 6 again. 6:10am 1/2 scoop Speed X3, 1/2g Beta-Alanine, 1g Taurine, 50mg caffeine. 6:30 half banana, small granola bar. 6:40 started running at a mod-hard pace increase speed ever so slightly throughout. I finished a full minute faster than last time even though my legs were still a little sore from lifting and the prior bike ride. I felt really good throughout, averaged 8:05 min miles. My pace was probably a little too intense for using Speed X3. I felt a little over-stimulated but nothing crazy. I didn't feel any thermo effect as it was in the low 50s.

  9. Tried something a little different today with supplementation for swim/upper body lift. Big breakfast at 8:30. 11:15 1/2 scoop Speed X3, 1/2g Beta-Alanine, 1g Taurine, 23g whey. 11:30 serving of honeydew melon. 12:00 performed the following swim workout that lasted 40 minutes sipping on 1/2 scoop Speed X3, 1/4 scoop Purple Wraath:

    500yd warmup
    8x100yd as 50 sprint/50 easy, 20 sec rest
    8x50yd as 25 sprint/25 easy, 20 sec rest
    200yd cool down

    This dosage was still too much for me for an intense cardio workout. Breathing was somewhat out of control while doing my sprint intervals, gasping for air after each flip turn. Took a 10 minute break to change and eat 1/4 cup raisins. I ended up having a really good lift, felt no fatigue from the swim. Here's how it went:

    3x Incline Bench 205 lbs, 8-11 reps
    SS 3X Reverse grip Hammer Strength High Row 185 lbs, 9 reps
    3X DB bench 90 lbs, 6-9 reps
    SS Free Motion wide lat pull down 70 lbs, 10 reps
    3x BB Shoulder press 150 lbs, 8-10 reps
    SS DB reverse flys 25 lbs, 11-12 reps
    SS DB alternating side/front raises 25 lbs, 14-16 reps
    3x wide grip BB curl 115 lbs, 6-8 reps
    SS cable tri pressdown 185 lbs, 10 reps
    DB overhead tri press 90 lbs, 6-8 reps
    SS 3x reverse EZ curl bar 95 lbs, 8-9 reps

    It lasted 50 minutes. I sipped on 3/4 scoop Purple Wraath. Energy was through the ROOF! I went up in weight or reps on a few sets, pleased with that! I noticed a slight thermo effect 15 min into the workout. I kept rest periods between 75 and 150 sec, so I wasn't getting winded and didn't feel like I was racing around. Recovery between sets was fantastic, I felt more than ready for the next set after just 1 min even though I was supersetting. I was still plenty jittery postworkout. Hours after the workout, the overstimulated effect seems to be wearing off quicker than before.

  10. Great bike/leg/abs workout today. Here's how the day went. 8:15 big breakfast. 10:15 1 scoop TSN Cardio Igniter, 1g Taurine. 10:45 started biking sipping 24g whey, 1/2 scoop Speed X3, 12oz gatorade. The following ride lasted 70 min.

    16 min warmup
    4x 2.5 min all out, 2.5 easy
    remaining mod-hard effort

    This ride was not as long/depleting as others so along with having plenty of energy in the tank, I still felt relatively fresh. Here's the workout that lasted 50 min.

    3x BB lunges 155 lbs, 8-10 reps each leg, rest 2 min
    3x standing calf raises holding a 50 lb DB, 22 reps, rest 60 sec
    3x Bosu ball hamstring curls, 12-15 reps, rest 60 sec
    3x strength band standing knee drives 11-13 reps, minimal rest to switch bands
    3x Bosu trainer DB squats 50 lbs, 21-20 reps
    SS jacknifes 24-25 reps, rest 60 sec
    3x Ab wheel rolling side to side hitting obliques 7-8 reps each side, rest 60 sec

    Increases pretty much across the board from last workout. I was resting a little longer than last time. Today was the "cleanest" my energy ever felt. I probably could have tolerated a little more caffeine or Speed X3. Great endurance throughout the lift. I didn't notice a jittery feeling post workout. I wouldn't say I was overly stimulated during the workout. Breathing and heart rate seemed to remain under control. I enjoyed today's workout, performance was great. Just a little tunnel vision today, no extra rage.

  11. Looking good in here keep up the great log.

  12. Good morning endurance run today. 7:15am half scoop Speed X3, 1/2g Beta Alanine, 1g Taurine, 30mg caffeine. 7:45 small granola bar. 8:00 7.5 mile mod pace run. Had a good euphoric feeling first half of the run. Averaged 9 min miles, nothing too strenuous. All in all, pleasurable run, wasn't over stimulated.

  13. Steady kicking butt in here!! Keep up the great work!!

  14. Swim/upper body lift today. Late lunch at 2:00. 4:00 1 scoop TSN Cardio Igniter. 4:30 started the following 45 min swim:

    500yd warmup
    14x 100 as 50 sprint, 50 easy, 20 sec rest, every fifth set take an extra 50 easy
    200 cool down

    2200yd total. Sipped on half scoop Speed X3 intraworkout. Took 15 minutes to change and eat a mini box of Nerds. This was a fairly hard workout but I was more than ready for the following 55 min lift.

    3x Incline Bench 205 lbs, 7-11 reps
    3X Reverse grip Hammer Strength High Row 190 lbs, 8-9 reps
    3X DB bench 90 lbs, 6-9 reps
    3x Free Motion wide lat pull down 73 lbs, 9-11 reps
    3x wide grip BB curl 115 lbs, 6-8 reps
    SS DB overhead tri press 90 lbs, 7-8 reps
    3x cable tri pressdown 191 lbs, 8 reps
    3x BB Shoulder press 145 lbs, 8-9 reps
    SS DB reverse flys 25 lbs, 12 reps
    SS DB alternating side/front raises 25 lbs, 14-16 reps
    3x reverse EZ curl bar 95 lbs, 8-9 reps

    Gym was pretty crowded at this time so I couldn't do as many supersets resulting in a little longer workout and my order changed some. Sipped on a sample packet of Finaflex BCAA SAA. Very happy with my performance today since swim was tough as mentioned before. I was a little jittery since I didn't have any whey with my Speed X3. Great endurance throughout the workout, no let down. Jittery postworkout, but it wore off fine an hour later.

  15. Supersets are so hard to get in sometimes. Hate when you clearly using stuff and people take it on you.

  16. Great bike/leg/abs workout today. Here's how the day went. 8:45 big breakfast. 11:00 1 scoop TSN Cardio Igniter, 1g Taurine. 10:30 started biking sipping 22g whey, 1/2 scoop Speed X3, 1/4 scoop Purple Wraath. The following ride lasted 60 min.

    16 min warmup
    3x 8 min hard, 4 min easy
    remaining mod-hard effort

    I felt like a million bucks the last half of the ride. Perfect amount of stimulants for me today. It was a hard ride but not too long so I had a really good lift. I took a 10 minute break to eat 1/4 cup raisins and a couple other small sweets. Here's the workout that lasted 50 min.

    3x BB lunges 155 lbs, 10 reps each leg, rest 2 min
    3x standing calf raises holding a 50 lb DB, 21-23 reps, rest 60 sec
    3x Bosu ball hamstring curls, 13-15 reps, rest 60 sec
    3x strength band standing knee drives 11-13 reps, minimal rest to switch bands
    3x Bosu trainer DB squats 50 lbs, 20-22 reps
    SS jacknifes 25-28 reps, rest 45 sec
    3x Ab wheel rolling side to side hitting obliques 8 reps each side, rest 60 sec

    Sipped on 3/4 scoop Purple Wraath. Again saw good increases from last workout. Another clean energy day. Great endurance throughout the lift. I didn't notice a jittery feeling post workout. Heart rate was beating pretty fast today but nothing crazy. Slight euphoria, tons of drive. I noticed a really good motivation on the last exercise to finish strong. Minimal jittery feeling post workout.

  17. Swim/upper body lift today. Got plenty of sleep. Big breakfast at 8:30. 11:15 110mg caffeine, 1g Beta-Alanine, 1g Taurine. 12:05 started the following 39 min swim:

    300yd warmup
    1700yd race rehearsal swim, first 400 hard, remaining settle into strong pace

    2000yd total. Decided to up the stimulants today. In 8oz of water I mixed 2/3 scoop Speed X3, 23g whey. I drank half right before and right after my swim warmup. I didn't have any problems with being overstimulated in the swim. I was able to settle nicely into my "strong" pace. Alll in all, great swim. Took 15 minutes to change and 1/4 cup raisins and couple sweettarts. I was more than ready for the following 55 min lift.

    3x Incline Bench 215 lbs, 6-8 reps
    SS 3X Reverse grip Hammer Strength High Row 190 lbs, 8-9 reps
    3X DB bench 90 lbs, 7-10 reps
    SS 3x Free Motion wide lat pull down 73 lbs, 9 reps
    3x BB Shoulder press 155 lbs, 8 reps
    SS DB reverse flys 25 lbs, 13-14 reps
    SS DB alternating side/front raises 25 lbs, 14-16 reps
    3x wide grip BB curl 115 lbs, 6-7 reps
    SS 3x cable tri pressdown 191 lbs, 10 reps
    DB overhead tri press 90 lbs, 7-8 reps
    SS 3x reverse EZ curl bar 95 lbs, 8-9 reps

    Pleased with my performance as usual. I didn't feel overstimulated during the workout. Tremendous amount of energy. I was still lacking that fire-breathing rage I sometimes get. I noticed during one my shoulder giant sets that I was experiencing zero mental fatigue and only muscle failure - love this feeling. Slight euphoria today. 55 min is a long lift after a higher priority cardio session. I was ready to be done but still had good energy post workout. Sitting down back to work, I was fairly jittery but was expecting this.

    This is my last time using Speed X3 for this log. After this weekend, I have two triathlons in two weekends, so I'll be taking it easy working out and taking a break from stims. I'll post a final review later this weekend.

  18. Good luck on the triathlons.

  19. I'll post this in the product review section as well. Thanks Marms!

    First off, I want to thank Lecheek for the opportunity to log Speed X3. Unfortunately, I don't think this supplement is for me. I think I'm sensitive to Yohimbe and the amount of Yohimbe in there was just too much for me. There is also a third stimulant of Synephrine HCI, making Speed X3 very potent. I only took a full dose (1 scoop) on an empty stomach once. I experienced extreme energy, my heart was pounding, and I remained on edge for quite a while post workout. During the workout I felt like I was running around a mile a minute. The tunnel vision was so intense that I wasn't even able to jam to my music. With Speed X3 being touted as an energy supplement, I was hoping that it would be versatile enough to take for cardio. However, I was unhappy with my experiences when taking with cardio. Anytime I ramped up the intensity, my breathing and heart rate seemed to get out of control. Therefore I only used it for steady-state easier cardio days. I also don't recommend using Speed X3 when you know you'll be exercising in hot temperatures. There is a definite thermogenic effect with this product. When I dosed it close to a full scoop, I noticed a warm sensation at the start of the workout and increased sweating throughout the rest of the workout. After taking for a while, I did find my sweet spot with the supplement. I would start by taking extra caffeine (50-150mg), .5g Beta-Alanine, 1g Taruine. Then a little later, I would take half scoop Speed X3 with 20-25g whey. Mixing it with whey seemed to minimize the negative side effects for me. Unfortunately with a half scoop, I wasn't getting as much of the performance enhancement properties, just pure energy. No matter the dosage, I always experienced great endurance and recovery during lifts. I always had plenty of drive left at the end of workouts. For me, I enjoyed Speed X3 the most when I took longer rests between sets ( > 90 secs), otherwise my heart rate would get out of control and I would feel like I was running around. I cannot say it helped much for pumps because I was normally dosing it at a half scoop. I didn't experience any extra rage while taking this. On some other PWOs, I feel like I want to run through a brick wall, not with Speed X3, just extreme energy and tunnel vision. I was able to see some performance gains while on Speed X3.

    So to sum it up, I'll give it a 3/5. My sensitivity to Yohimbe really decreased my satisfaction for Speed X3. Although, it makes a really good value when dosing at a half scoop. However, I am looking for a little more in a PWO than just pure energy. If you are not sensitive to Yohimbe, I would definitely recommend giving this a try. This would also be a good alternative to Red Bull.

  20. Thanks for logging for us. Sorry about the Yohimbe. I know it doesnt agree with some people.

    Got third in my age group, my 61 yr old dad won his age group! I average 6 min 54 sec miles in the 5k run and 20.2 mph on the 22k bike. Very happy with those times especially when temps were in the low 80s.

  23. That's awesome congrats to you and pops.
