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, , and technique. I train 2 out of the 3 phases 6x/week and sometimes combine them into one session.
Wed-weights, Thai boxing
Fri-weights, Thai boxing
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)
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.
So you are taking 2 caps twice daily?
I was confusing the dosage with the og ActivaTe dosage.
Subscribed: I don't know if I missed it but are you bulking, cutting, re-comping ?
Great to see you getting a chance to log this rodja... looking forward to seeing what you get out of it.

J/k dude, solid thread.
sub: good luck(work hard)
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 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.
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.
Great log thus far, Rodja! Will def keep an eye on this one.
Alright Rodja! Will be following along again for sure! When is your next match up?
