    Rodja's Activate Extreme Test


    First, I would like to thank Rob and the DS crew for picking me to test out their new product. I have previously taken Activate and got some solid results so I am expecting this new version to be even better. Dosing will be 4 caps/day about 12 hours apart. I don't have a reason for doing this, I just like to take make supplements as evenly as possible.

    My MMA training breaks down into 3 phases: strength/power, endurance, and technique. I train 2 out of the 3 phases 6x/week and sometimes combine them into one session.
    Mon-weights, sprints
    Tue-BJJ, endurance
    Wed-weights, Thai boxing
    Thu-BJJ, endurance
    Fri-weights, Thai boxing
    Sat-BJJ, endurance

    It is a little vague ATM, but I will expanf after each training session. I haven't done my sprints today as of this moment, but my lifts were:
    Flat BP-155x5, 165x4, 185x1, 190x1, 135x3x3 (Westside style)
    BB Rows-205x3x5 (dynamic)
    Dips-BWx10, BW+15x8
    One-Arm Rows/Side Laterals-100x8/35x10, 100x8/35x10
    Trunk Rotations/Weighted Crunches-60x20x2/110x30x2

    Overall, it was a solid WO; nothing spectacular, but it was not bad. I am going to do sprints at about 8 PM and that will be the true test of whether or not today was a successful training day. I will take measurements tomorrow along with goals, etc.

    I am going for a slight recomp, maybe stay the same weight, but trim a little BF and gain some LBM, and strength gains. I can't get too much bigger than a lean 180 otherwise cutting to 170 may be difficult and dangerous. I would say that I am in the 11% BF range and would like to eventually get down to about 7%.

    I did my sprints after work today and I was only able to get 8 instead of my usual 10. The sprint was at 11 MPH on a 5% grade and the rest was 4 MPH at a 5% grade. I alternated between 30 seconds and 40 seconds on the sprint and 90 and 80 seconds on the rest. My HR just didn't feel right and I couldn't get enough air for some reason. Oh well, I didn't train for 11 days so I am not surprised to see a minor drop off in performance.

    chalk it bro - sometimes that's how it is

    take it for motivation for your next workout

    8 instead of 10 is better than an excuse on why you could not do 1 - so good job

    I started having trouble at 4, but I went for as long as I could. I am not really that upset by it, just disappointed.

    I had BJJ and conditioning training today. BJJ was open mat so I was able to get a solid 45 minutes of free rolling and I was able to get a few of my training partners with a brabo choke and a d'arce choke, which I learned from an instructional video today. My conditioning consisted of this: 10 burpees, 20 jumping jacks, 10 sprawls into a knee strike, and 10 box jumps on a 2 ft boxed followed by a 1/4 mile run. I did this 4 times with 1 minute rest between sets for a total of 16 minutes of training time. I am going to work my way up to 6 on these sets as I draw closer to my fight and maybe increase the reps as well.

    Measurements-
    Wt-178
    BF%-11%
    Chest-43.5"
    Arms-15"
    Waist-31"
    Thighs-26"

    I could make weight tomorrow if I needed to so I am going to focus on adding some LBM and stripping away some adipose. Ideally, at the end of this cycle, I will be at or slightly above my current weight, but 9-10%BF and with increased strength.

    I definitively have one set up for mid-to-late November, but I would really like to get another fight between now and then.

    Todays lifts-
    Cleans-165x8, 185x6, 190x1 (traps were dead)
    Lunge/Squats on Smith-135x5x3/135x10x3 (20 seconds rest)
    Wide Grip Pulldowns-170x6x2
    Step-Ups/Hammer Curls-90x5x2/50x6x2 (20 seconds rest)
    Trunk Rotations/Woodchoppers-60x20x2/60x10x2

    Overall, I felt pretty good during this WO and my recovery between sets was pretty good. My MCL in my right knee was a little cranky, but not enought to slow me down. I have to skip my second training session today to pack and move out of my apartment. I know the AX is still building in my system, but I am already feeling the effects of the Rhodiola, which is awesome.

    Yesterday was an awesome BJJ class. I pulled off a freakin gogoplata on a blue belt. It is definitely one of my proudest accomplishments in BJJ as of this moment and I actually starting shouting after I pulled it off. I have been moving the past couple of days so I haven't been able to get in all parts of my training since Tuesday. I am going to lift in a few hours and I will update tonight.

    Sorry, I went to watch my friends play a show and forgot to update before I left.

    Close Grip BP - 205x8, 225x4
    Clean and Press - 135x8, 145x6 PR
    BB Rows - 225x10, 245x8
    Pressdowns/Weighted Crunches - 150x12/110x30, 150x12/120x30
    Pull-Ups/Trunk Rotations/Facepulls - BWx5x2/70x20x2/70x15x2

    Great WO, strength was great and I had a nice pump and vascularity. I am going to incorporate more rear delt work in my lifting to strengthen my shoulder integrity. Abs seem to be slightly more visible, but I think it is too early to say. For 5 days in, I can definitely feel a difference in recovery and sleep. The nettle and rhodiola combo was a brilliant idea for sleep and recovery.

    Hey Rodja, I find that conditioning practices destroy me, my joints hurt, and I really can't do much the next day. How do you maintain strength? It seems rediculously catabolic... I've been drinking like 10-15 grams of bcaa's to stave off catabolism, but I'm not sure if that's helping. 2 conditioning practices a week is too much for me. Argh.

    I will admit that I am blessed when it comes to endurance, but the main thing to increase is overall kcals, mainly carbs. I eat fruit several times per day for quick energy and I would recommend that your first 2-3 meals include a serving of fruit. The best ones in my book are blueberries, pineapple, bananas, and raisins. Not only do they add carbs, but they each have a great overall nutrient profile and help you to stay healthy to maximize recovery.

    It appears as though I have picked up a fight for sometime around late September. So, I have about 7 weeks or so to get myself into competition shape. Luckily, I don't have to worry about my weight, but I am going to put a huge focus on my cardio until this fight. Luckily, I will have about 6-7 weeks between this fight and my next, so I can take a week off after the first one to give my body some rest.

    Today is day 7 of my log and here are my impressions/observations:
    1. Sleep is phenomenal; I can sleep for only 6 hours and fell like I had 9
    2. Vascularity is starting to improve
    3. Strength gains are starting to come along nicely
    4. Joints are a little dry, particularly my knees and elbows
    5. DOMS has been reduced
    6. Appetite is up slightly
    7. Increased nutrient repartitioning; I have blood glucose crashes if I don't eat in 3 hours intervals
    8. Mood is great
    9. Pumps are improved, but not massive...yet
    10. Cardio has not increased significantly, but it is still early in the cycle
    11. Aggression is way up

    I did cardio ~1 hour before lifting, but I felt strong throughout the WO. Cardio today was a 2.5 mile run which I finished in 17minutes.

    Flat BP - 165x5, 185x1, 195x1
    BB Rows - 205x5x3 (20 seconds rest)
    Dips - BW+10x8, BW+25x5 (PR)
    V-Handle Pulldowns/Side Laterals - 160x6x2/35x10x2

    I skipped my core session because my abs have had lingering soreness and I wanted to get a little extra rest for them today. Sleep, vascularity, and pumps have been great. Acne is increased on forehead and shoulders, but nothing horrible. Unlike with ATD, I am not experiencing any weak erections either. So far, so good...

    Today was a long day of training. I had BJJ, sparring, and distance cardio back-to-back-to-back, but I managed to survive. Sparring went ok, but I need to develop a better sense of reach and start incorporating more uppercuts into my stand-up game. BJJ was a good session and I focused more on sweeps and transitions than actual submissions. I am starting to incorporate scissors half-guard into my game and have been able to get several sweeps from that position on a consistent basis. Cardio was 2.5 miles and I finished in 18 minutes, which was a little worse than Monday, but I also was not anywhere near the level of fatigue yesterday as I was today during cardio. It is the beginning of my pre-fight prep and I am going to become a conditioning demon over the next several months. Hopefully, the Activate Ex will help my recovery and strength levels over the length of this trial. I have set a few PR's already and I hope to keep improving.

    Today's lifts:
    Cleans-185x6, 195x2
    Lunge/Squats-135x5/135x10, 145x5x2/145x10x2
    Step-Up/Hammer Curls-90x5x2/50x6x2
    Pull-Ups/Trunk Rotations-BWx5x3/60x20x3

    Good pump and strength roday. I am looking a lot leaner and drier over the past few days, but I am at 177. I have increased my kcals by about 150 over the past couple days, mainly coming from carbs and EFAs. Since I did this, I have not had as many blood-glucose issues as before.

    Today's lifts:

    Close Grip BP-225x8, 235x4
    Clean and Press-135x8, 155x6 (PR)
    BB Rows-245x10, 275x8
    Pressdowns/Pull-Ups/Cable Laterals-150x12/BWx5/25x10, 150x15(PR)/BWx5/30x10
    Woodchoppers/Facepulls-60x10x2/80x15x2

    I had a good WO today; it take me a minute to get going, but I got ther. My legs and hips were tired from biking up hills yesterday, which affected my strength on the cleans and woodchoppers. I had a couple of PRs today, so I guess you could say that today was a success. My cardio is starting to get back to where it needs to be, but I still have a ways to go to get to the level of conditioning I want.

    I decided to slightly change the routine today and I had some great strength and pumps to go with it.

    Dips-BW+25x6, BW+35x6 (PR)
    BB Rows-225x12, 245x10x2
    Incline DB-70x6x2
    Facepulls/Weighted Crunches-80x15/120x15, 90x15x230x15x2

    My weight was at 179 today, but it was probably due to eating a lot this weekend. My appetite has been up for the past several days and I thought that I would take advantage of that. Delts and arms are starting to get more vascular and defined.

    Update as far as conditioning is concerned: my cardio has made a rapid improvement over the last 10 days or so. I am able to complete all of my conditioning drills and not feel like I am about to vomit. BJJ and sparring are doing excellent and my recovery between sets and rest periods is outstanding. I have zero negatives to report as of this moment.

    Today's Lifts

    Front Squats-155x6
    Reverse Lunges-90x8 (per leg)x3
    SLDL-185x10, 205x8
    Grip Work-30 second holds w/ 80x1, 30 seconds w/90x1

    I am starting to implement some more leg work to maintain a higher level of posterior chain strength. I am pretty sure that this is the reason that my lower back has been more susceptible to injuries over the past year because I have not serious leg training for about 15 months now. I am also starting to dose at 6 caps/day for the rest of the log (2 w/ breakfast, 2 pre-WO/mid-day, 2 before bed).
