    Let the anxiousness build !!


  2. Ok I thought I would give everyone a look at my attempts for the Meet. WU stands for warm-ups, and the 3rd attempts are a range. What I settle will depends on how I feel on the day. Although i won't achieve it this Meet, my goal by the end of the year is to achieve a 525 Total = 1,155lbs. IF I were to do really well this Meet, I would get close. A 525 Total would put me in the Class A lifter category, which is just behind Elite I and Elite II and would still allow me to actually compete for Australia if they needed lifters or somebody from Elite pulled out. Anyways, wishful thinking for now.

    In the meantime I have bought myself some Arnica in both cream form and tablets to help the rib muscle bruising go away as quickly as possible.

    Also, I'm feeling recovered and full of energy.

  3. Thumbs up


    Very cool man We are glad to have you testing IXL leading up to your meet.

  4. Ok, this is the night before the Meet. After work I went to a Meet technical meeting and weighed myself there for tomorrow. Sitting on 68.2kg and need to get to 67.5kg so that's not a worry.

    In the meantime, other than the injury my energy levels, and recovery have been good I believe due to IXL, otheriwise the weight loss would have got to me already. I feel confident for tomorrow, so let's see how it goes.

  6. Meet review time.

    So...I finally totalled, so that's Goal 1 achieved, BUT I didn't meet the lifts I had aimed for - but with an injury I should be happy with what I achieved

    Squat
    My warm-ups felt too heavy and my rib injury was flaring up with the belt on, so I wasn't able to put it on tight.
    1st attempt 170kg - got it no problem.
    2nd attempt 180kg - did not get fired up, plenty of strength, but I didn't get the depth.
    3rd attempt 180kg- I was going to go for 190kg but I agreed with the coach that what I needed was to total, so I went out, got crazy fired up and got it easily. In other words, I would have got the 190kg.

    Bench
    1st attempt 92.5kg - Easy
    2nd attemptt 100kg - Easy
    3rd attempt 107.5kg - Almost easy, got up thought I had it. 2 red lights and 1 white. Apparently the bar had just dipped a tad on my left hand side, where I have the injury.

    Deadlift
    1st attempt 190kg - Easy.
    2nd attempt 200kg - Easy, BUT, altough I had my shoulders back, I forgot to fully lock out my legs!!!!!!!!!!!! ! judge obviously thought the ift was good. DAMN!!!!!!!
    3rd attempt 207.5kg - This poundage is my nemesis, and after last week only being able to lift 196kg because of my rib injury....however I upped the weight from my 2nd attempt as I felt strong and everyone including the coach agreed. Pulled...got it up...legs locked...THEN...all of a sudden, I feel a pull on my left hand side aboved the ribs...sends a shock wave through my left arm and down to my left had which then begins to open!!!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Then I had to drop the bar! I only needed one more second.

    So my total was 472.5kg (1,040lbs). If I hadn't missed the bench and the deadlift, well then it would have been 495kg.

    Out of the entire 67.5kg class (about 7 of us) I came 3rd. In my specific Opens class I came 2nd out of 3

    So, a few lessons learnt. One which also includes, wearing a bench top and squat suit which are actually tight!

    With regards to IXL
    No doubt about it that in the lead up to the Meet, with a drop in BW, my strength levels not only were maintained but def increased and recovery has been impressive. Right now for example I should be still sleeping...I AM sore, BUT I feel good despite yesterday's effort, and have plenty of energy. I remember my last meet, and I felt depleted. So I'll be asessing how I feel over the next couple of days how recovery is whilst still taking IXL.

    Next week 'll be upping the cardio and testing how IXL makes me feel.
  7. Cool


    GREAT JOB at the meet!!! Even with an injury, your lifts are very good :bb2: I am looking forward to seeing how IXL impacts your cardio

  8. Awesome efforts man, you're definitely on your way. Those injuries can linger around if you let them, so make sure you let em fully heal. Cardio will be a nice change too..great job Sput.

  9. And so it ends...

    Final asessment

    Yesterday I finished my bottle of IXL. This last week saw me just doing cardio and some weights, but nothing serious. Post-meet, recovery has been excellent, except for my injury, which I still noticed doign squats the other day.

    Make no mistake about it IXL is a great addition to your arsenal - in my case, dropping BW for a meet, WHILST trying to increase strength levels. For me that's exactly what happened. Today I went in for my first hard training session and strength wasn't only there, it was better. I did 148kg for 6x2 on squats, despite the rib pain (only mild now), going lower than I usually do.

    So AEN, well done on a great product and thanks again for allowing me to test it. Now off to buy some.....

    Wow, that went by fast.

    Thank you very much for the entertaining and thorough log, it was enjoyable to follow. WE are very happy to hear, you were please with IntraXCell and will continue on with it.

    Slowly but surely we are getting logs done from all types of athletes, though I believe you were our first powerlifter.

    I hope people are starting to realize how versatile IntraXCell really is. Anyone looking to increase, strength, lean muscle, power & endurance, should take a serious look at this supplement, as it delivers time and time again.

    Thanks again.
