    Default Today's workout



    So as I just said we just got our EL Green Mag today and there was no way I wasn't going to try it today as well!!

    My workouts are a little screwed up right now because I'm flying back home to Saskatchewan on Friday, so basically I'm trying to squeeze all my days in before Friday.

    Pre-Workout Supplements:
    2 red Acid
    1 Sesaglow
    1 Sample pack of White Flood
    (yeah I went all out on the first day)

    The Workout: Hams and Tri's
    format: reps@pounds

    Deadlifts: 10@135, 10@225, 10@315, 5@405, 1@495 - I've been doing deadlifts on hamstring day to free up some time on my back day, it's going great and it's helping thrash my hamstrings.

    Hamstring curls: triple drop set: 10@110/80/50 x 2 sets

    Stiff-Leg Deadlifts: 12@135 x 2 sets

    Overhead Dumbell Extensions: two handed: 10@100 x 3 sets

    Tricep Pressdowns: triple drop set: 10@180/160/140 x 2 sets

    Bench Dips: 12@Bodyweight, 15@BW, 20@BW

    We followed this up with 20 min on the reincumbant bike, level 20 and random setting - we only did this because we had gotten up at 5:30 am this morning and went for a hike.

    Post-Workout Supps:
    1 Serving of Green MAG

    Post-Workout Meal:
    Protein Pancake(3 eggs, 1 scoop protein, 1/2 scoop oatmeal)

    So now, the important stuff.... the combination of the Red Acid and the White Flood had me flying pretty high. I had tons of energy and was just pumping away at the weight with very short breaks.

    ELECTRIC LEMONADE GREEN MAGNITUDE

    So for my first usage there's not a whole lot that I can say about the effectiveness of the product, however, there ARE a few things that I can say...

    TASTE: 10/10 - as many have said this product tastes deadly. The reason I give this a 10 is that the flavoring is awesome (at least as good as the Sour Green Apple, if not better) but it is sugar free. I found that most creatines that taste great are high in sugar but GM isn't, so it should be perfect for my cutting.

    MIXABILITY: 9/10 - It mixed great however, there were a few crystals left at the bottom of the shaker (I didn't measure the water I just eyeballed it) next time I will use the suggested amount of water and re-evaluate.

    So overall for the first test Electric Lemonade gets a 9.5/10, so far it's great, and I'm definitely looking forward to this log.

    I've been away from the gym and away from internet access for a few days (I know, hard to believe..) but I'm back and ready to rock.

    Well I'm finally back from my little vacation, it was both good and bad. However getting back into the gym has been difficult because the place has been closed for a few days due to some water damage or flooding?? I'm not really sure what the issue is I just know that it's not open, so we decided to go to DD's universiry gym. The university gym is pretty small and they don't really have that many weights there but it works fine when you're in a pinch, and it has a cheap drop-in fee (plus she can go for free). Anyway, it was a shoulder workout and here it is:

    Power Clean and Press: 10@135, 8@135, 6@135
    Upright Row: 10@185
    Overhead Press: 10@155

    Standing DB Press: 10@60 x 3 sets - could've done more but the DB's only go to 60.

    Shoulder Raise Giantset: Lateral/bentover/front: 10/10/10@30
    bentover/front/lateral: 10/10/10@30
    front/lateral/bentover: 8/8/8@30

    Single Arm Machine Press: 20@30 each side x 3 sets

    Machine Sled Calf Press: 20@300, 15@400, 15@400 - Machine only goes up to 400 so I was stuck again.

    Finished this up with 3 sets of 10 hanging leg raises, and 3 sets of 20 crunches.

    We walked there and back so there was no other cardio performed today.

    Preworkout supps:
    1 multi
    1 glucosamine/chondroitin
    1 fish oil
    2 Red Acid
    - no more white flood left.

    During Workout:
    Sipped on Purple Wraath

    Post-Workout supps:
    1 scoop EL Green Mag
    10g glutamine

    Post workout meal:
    1 Whole wheat, turkey, lettuce and salsa wrap.

    The workout gets B+, I wish I was at my regular gym because I really could've pushed the envelope a little more. It looks like we won't have access to the gym for awhile, so we might be staying at the university for a bit longer, maybe we'll go check some other places out but you just can't beat the university's price.

    Took today off in hopes that the gym will open up soon and I can save another drop-in fee, regardless yesterday we did Quads and Bi's at the university, even though I wasn't able to challenge myself as much as I would've liked (due to the gym issue) I still got a pretty decent workout.

    Squats: 10@135, 10@225, 10@315 - I'm just getting back to these after some knee issues came up again, I'm coming back to them slowly so I'm looking forward to my squats increasing during this log.

    Leg Extension: 15@180, 12@190, 12@200 - could've went higher but the machine was maxed out.

    Leg Press: single leg ss w/ both legs: 10/10/20@200 x 3 sets

    EZ Bar Curl(standing): triple drop: 10@140, 10@120, 15@70 x 2
    EZ Bar Curl(reverse grip): triple drop: 10@110, 10@90, 10@70

    Seated DB Curl ss w/ Seated Hammer Curl: 10@40/10@30 x 2 sets
    Seated Hammer Curl ss w/ Seated DB Curl: 10@40/10@30

    No cardio as we had to rush off to Costco to pick up a box chicken, a huge bag of salad, a 30 pack of eggs, and some taboule(sp?)

    Preworkout supps:
    1 multi
    1 glucosamine/chondroitin
    1 fish oil
    2 Red Acid
    - no more white flood left.

    During Workout:
    Sipped on Purple Wraath - This was our last packet so now I have to go without.

    Post-Workout supps:
    1 scoop EL Green Mag
    10g glutamine - I think I only have maybe a couple servings of glutamine left as well - is it just me or does it seem like you always run out of more than one thing at the same time.

    Post workout meal:
    2 scoops Optimum protein w/ water (as I said I have to cut out any extras this week - it's working, I'm already down 4 pounds since I got back )

    I think I need another paycheck to roll on in so I can start replacing some of stuff I'm running out of, we'll see what happens.

    So on Friday we attempted to go to our regular gym again, it was still closed, however, we've been hearing a new rumor that the gym has passed into recievorship (sp?) That really sucks if it's true because we've been paying installments every few months and actually just paid $100 a few days before we went on holidays, I think we've paid probably 80% of our memberships and still have 5 or 6 months left on them, so if it's true we're out that money.

    So then we went back to the university, of course with our luck, it's closed for the night. So finally I'm really getting fed up with this whole situation and decided that we should go try one more gym because we really wanted to get a workout in. So we drove another 15-20 minutes to get to the next gym. It was pretty decent, they even let us have a free trial workout, which is pretty rare these days, most places want to charge you a drop-in fee that they'll put towards the membership if you decide to join. The gym was empty and I was able to do my chest workout without any waiting for weights, I definitely had that unsure feeling of being in a new gym but the workout was good anyway.

    Bench Press: 20@135, 12@225, 10@275, 6@315 - first time I've don heavy chest since I've been back, should've done some more but I didn't want to push it too far too quick.

    Hammer Strength Machine Incline Press: 10@225, 10@275, 10@315, 8@365 - I never really feel comfortable on this one, maybe it's because I only use it once every couple years.

    Incline DB Flyes: 10@45, 10@50, 10@55

    Pec Deck: 10@180, 10@190, 10@200 - maxed machine.

    We did some cardio as well, I got on the x-trainer for 20 minutes, level 12 on the random hill setting.

    All-in-all I'd give the workout an A I got a really good pump my chest is still sore a couple days later, and I even did some cardio.

    Preworkout supps:
    1 multi
    1 glucosamine/chondroitin
    1 fish oil
    2 Red Acid
    - no more white flood left.

    During Workout:
    Water
    - no purple wraath left.

    Post-Workout supps:
    1 scoop EL Green Mag
    - no more glutamine left.

    Post workout meal:
    Since it was late and I hadn't had any supper yet I had a Protein Pancake for my meal.
    3 egg whites, 2 yolks
    1 scoop protein
    1/4 scoop oats
    cinnamon
    Diabetic Syrup

    Yesterday we were out at the Tall Ships Festival here in Halifax, it was an awesome day and pretty cool to see all those huge ships (especially for a prairie boy!!). We'll be hitting the university again today and I'll probably be buying a months membership because we can't afford to pay for 2 new memberships at the gym we tried on Friday, we'll just have to tough it out at the university until we can figure things out

    Default Mon. July 16th

    Today's workout was pretty decent but I hate looking around and trying to figure out what to do next because my options are so limited, but we make do with what we have and put together a pretty damn good workout.

    Widegrip Chinups: 10@bodyweight x 4 sets

    DB Rowss ss w/BB Rows: 10@100/10@185 x 3 sets

    Widegrip Pulldowns: 10@150, 10@180, 10@240
    V-Grip Pulldowns: 8@240, 8@210, 10@180

    Cable Rows: Undergrip: 10@180, 10@220, Overgrip: 10@180, 10@220

    Calf Press(on leg press) ss w/ Upright calf press: 20@400/20@300 x 3 sets

    No cardio today as we wanted to get out of the gym quickly, it's so freakin hot in there with no AC, just a couple fans blowing around the stale, sweaty air. It could almost be considered a hardcore place until you see some of the members...LOL...

    Preworkout supps:
    1 multi
    1 glucosamine/chondroitin
    1 fish oil
    2 Red Acid
    1 scoop EL Green Mag

    During Workout:
    Water

    Post-Workout supps:
    None

    Post workout meal:
    1 scoop of protein w/ water
    16 almonds

    Even running out of protein now, I guess it's straight chicken and eggs until next paycheck, oh well, chicken and salad is a pretty damn good meal anyway, and the protein pan***** are deadly.

    So I'm starting a new goal.....it's called 220 OR BUST!!.....I finally think that I'm ready to really start stripping off the fat and I want to get down to 220 lbs while maintaining as much strength/muscle as possible. I'm setting a 14 week goal for this plan, I understand that means that I have to shed ~40 lbs in 14 weeks but I'm kind of tired of carrying around so much weight (weighed in at 263 on Sunday - 8 pounds down since I got back(1 week)) Basically I'll be adding more cardio slowly and will be tightening up the diet, I'm sure with ~DD~'s help I'll be able to get back within striking distance of competition shape, having to cut so much weight is becoming more difficult each time I try and I think that if I can keep under 10% BF I will have a much better time getting ready for comps. So there it is....I will be posting any changes to my current plan...workouts will mostly stay the same, probably just add more supersets and giantsets...definitely will be increasing cardio a little, and will figure out a diet that is on target for this plan... I might add some supplements but nothing that will affect my Green MAGnitude log in any way. Any suggestions, critiques or criticisms are welcome

    Default Quads and Bi's




    So it was quads and bi's day again, I'm still pretty sore from my hamstring day (usually) I would've had a little more of a break between the two, but with all the gym trouble we've had we reallly didn't have a choice. Following ~DD~'s suggestions I decided to increase the intensity and volume of the workout since the university just doesn't have the weights to go really heavy, I'll tell you that if you're not used to training that way it can really kick the crap out of you.

    Squats ss w/DB stationary lunge: 10@135/10@40's, 10@225/10@40's x 3 sets

    Leg Press ss w/Leg Extensions ss w/ weightless squats:
    20@400/20@150/10 x 3 sets - this was ridiculous, by the end of each giant set I was barely able to get back to standing and by the of the whole thing I was feeling sore muscles that I didn't even know I had, it was pretty much a cardio session for me as well, since there was no rest inbetween exercises.

    Widegrip BB Curl ss w/ DB Curls: 10@125/10@40's x 3 sets

    Closegrip Cable Curl ss w/ DB Hammer Curls: 10@120/10@40's x 3 sets

    That's all it took, the workout went quick because I was barely even taking 30 seconds between sets, just taking enough time to get a sip of water and then back to it. I also did some cardio on the reincumbant bike, 20 minutes basically peddaling in a sauna (freakin gym is so hot) and I was done, I had sweat pouring from pretty much everywhere, it's a good feeling, feels like I actually did something today.

    Preworkout supps:
    1 glucosamine/chondroitin
    1 fish oil
    2 Red Acid
    1 scoop EL Green Mag

    During Workout:
    Water

    Post-Workout supps:
    None

    Post workout meal:
    ~DD~ made some healthy chili tonight so that was our postworkout meal as we didn't get back until close to 9pm.

    It consists of:
    Extra lean ground beef
    Various types of beans (white, kidney, etc)
    a little bit of low cal pasta sauce
    some chili powder and cayenne pepper - Apparently she had already put quite a bit in but I like it really hot so when she wasn't looking I poured some more in, maybe a bit too much. It didn't go over to well when she first tasted it (she's not big into spicy foods), but I loved it.

    I'm trying to decide whether tomorrow should be a day off or whether I should just go in and bust chest like it ain't no thing...we'll see what happens...

    So as the title says we don't have a whole lot of weight at the university gym, the dumbells only go up to 60's and there are only 6 45 lbs plates, but it's all we have right now so we have to make do, it's all about planning the workout a little more. You don't have the option of just going in there and blasting out super heavy weight, so you have to be a bit more tactical in your attack.

    Squats: 10@135, 10@225, 10@315, 10@225, 10@135 - surprisingly I didn't have to much pain on these, my knees felt decent so I think things are looking up.

    Smith Press ATG Front Squats ss w/ Machine Leg Press ss w/ Quad Extensions
    10@135 / 20@300 / 20@150 x 3 sets - These blew my quads apart, the burn was ridiculous and I was having some dry heaves, they are done with no rest between them and only 45 seconds between each giantset. (painful).

    Barbell Curl ss w/ Alternating DB Curl ss w/ Alternating Hammer Curl:
    10@105 / 10ea@30 / 10ea@25 x 3 sets - by the time these were done (much like my legs) I had an immense burn going on.

    Cable Curls ss w/ Incline Crunch ss w/ Frog Crunch: 20@90/20/20, 25@80/20/20, 30@70/20/20

    Since our legs were fried there was no point in doing cardio because we wouldn't have been able to even if we wanted to. Overall, the workout gets an A, definitely worth my while even though it was a little different from the usual heavy training that I like doing.

    Preworkout supps:
    1 Sesaglow
    2 Red Acid
    1 Pkg of StarChem Labs Armageddon - had a free sample and needed a major boost of energy after working OT again - didn't really deliver on it's promises, I'll be posting a review on it and their Evolution product when I finish all four packets.

    During Workout:
    Water

    Post-Workout supps:
    1 scoop EL Green Mag - it's not until you try something else (see above) that you realize just how good EL-GM actually is!!


    Post workout meal:
    Protein pancake.

    Today we decided to take a day off. After blasting our quads and bi's yesterday we were both feeling a bit sore, add to that, me having worked OT again (six days in a row now) and it was a good time for some extra rest. Plus I got to crunch some numbers on whether or not it would be profitable for me to go work in Fort McMurray for awhile (at least until ~DD~'s done school) we're definitely considering it right now. Tomorrow is CHEST and I can't wait, I'm going to get some giantsets going for chest and tear up every last little muscle fiber.

    It's been awhile since I've updated, just to keep everyone on track due to various issues I've reduced my workload to a simple Upper/Lower routine. It's working out good so far. I'm not completely sold on it yet but it's giving me more rest time and frees up more time for cardio in and out of the gym.

    Mon: Upper
    Tues: Lower
    Wed: OFF
    Thurs: Upper
    Fri: Lower
    Sat: OFF or cardio
    Sun: OFF or cardio

    So we made to both Costco and to the gym after work and before they closed (apparently the gym closes at 6 on Saturday???). So I was able to get my lower body workout in however, I had to finish the whole workout in 25 minutes. It was a rush and I didn't get to do everything that I wanted to do but I made do.

    Deadlifts ss w/ Front Squats: 20@135/10@135 x 3 sets - I would basically finish my 20th rep of DL's then do a power clean and set up and start front squts, It cut down on the time but I think that the combination and having no rest inbetween was a bit too much because I ended up straining my lower back a little.

    Single Leg Ham Curl ss w/ DB Stiff legged DL's: 10@60/10@45's x 3 sets

    Standing Calf Press: 20@300 x 3 sets - this machine is so easy that I
    barely consider this worth my time, but I wanted to get some calves in.

    Single Legged Squat: 5 on each leg x 3 sets - this was done with standing with one foot on the bench while the other one dangles beside it, then balancing all the way down I attempt to tough the dangling foot down to the ground doing a single leg squat with the other leg then returning to the upright position.

    Bench Step Ups: 20 reps total rotating legs x 3 sets - this was simply done with my own bodyweight providing the resistance.

    The workout was rushed so it wasn't quite what I wanted it to be but it still went pretty good especially after I strained my back early into it, I was able to continue but I'm pretty sure the I'm going to be sore tonight.

    Preworkout supps:
    1 Sesaglow
    2 Red Acid
    1 Scoop EL Green MAGnitude

    During Workout:
    Water

    Post-Workout supps:
    Protein Pancake

    Just some cardio yesterday while ~DD~ did her workout. It hasn't been so humid for the last few days so it was actually tolerable to do some cardio in the gym. The gym closed early again due to the long weeked so again we were a little pressed for time as I had put in another 8 hour shift of OT (doing it again today - that's 50 hours in the last 3 weeks). I was still able to get just over 30 minutes in so that wasn't too bad.

    15 minutes manual setting, level 4 on the reincumbant bike,
    17 minutes level 5 incline @ 4.0 mph on the treadmill.

    The cardio actually flew by because I was reading a copy of last month's Muscular Development magazine. I like that magazine mostly because of the little science/research articles that they have every month. (I guess FitnessRX usually has something similar - it's made by the same publisher so I guess they recycle), other than MD I would usually be ready MuscleMag International, I used to have a subscription to this one as they are pretty much the only mag that covers anything Canadian (a la Garry Bartlett). I find that cardio is so much easier if I have something like these to read as the mags just seem to motivate me. Anyway, the gym is open until 10pm tonight so we won't be rushed at all, today is the start of the second upper/lower week, with a little extra time on my side I should have no problem getting the whole workout in with a little cardio as well.

    PreCardio supps:
    1 Sesaglow
    2 Red Acid
    1 Scoop EL Green MAGnitude

    During Cardio:
    Water

    Post-Cardio supps:
    Protein Pancake

    Today's workout was the start of my second week of my upper/lower routine, I made one change - switching Incline Press for DB Flyes - to better balance my exercises over the week, all-in-all the workout went pretty awesome, I did exactly what I wanted to do and the gym was dead enough that I could use all the weights I needed.

    Bench Press: 2 warmup sets/20 reps (135, 225) 10@275, 10@295 10@315

    DB Flyes: 15@45, 10@59, 10@60

    Tricep Pressdowns: 20@180, 12@200, 10@220

    Standing DB Shoulder Press: 10@50, 10@60 x 2 sets

    Barbell Curl ss w/ Dumbell Alternating Curl: 10@95/10ea@30

    V-Grip Pulldowns: 10@180, 10@210, 10@240

    20 minutes on the treadmill, level 5 incline, 4.2 mph

    I don't know what happened but that little bit of cardio really burned, I was sweating like crazy. The workout gets a solid A and I think that it was a good start for the week. This is big for me because seeing that the mental aspect is huge in bodybuilding/weightlifting I think that if you can get into a good groove then things will flow the way you want them to, it's during these times that I truely believe we make are best gains. Hopefully, this week will continue that way and will set the stage for the near future.

    Default Upper body GFH

    Another awesome workout was had, like I said previously, I'm in a zone this week and it's the perfect place to be. It was upper body day again and having the rest day yesterday really set me up for a deadly workout, I was ready to hit it and hit it hard! Even after a long day at work, of course I did have a short nap between work and the gym, but after the nap and a pre-workout protein pancake, I was ready to go.

    Widegrip Pulldowns(behind the head): warmups - 2 sets of 20 (180,200) 12@210, 10@240 to the front, 10@210 BTH, 10@240 to the front - rotated front to back just for fun.

    Barbell Rows: 10@205, 10@225, 10@255, 10@275 - the last set was a bit sloppy but it felt good to just toss some weight around.

    Cable Curls ss w/ Crossbody Hammer Curls: 20@120/10ea@30's

    Incline Press: 10@205, 10@225, 10@255 - these felt so weird after doing biceps first, it's was an odd feeling - not bad, just odd.

    Lateral DB Raise: 12@40, 12@45, 10@50 - probably a little more swing on the last set than I should have but see above regarding "tossing weights".

    DB Skullcrushers ss w/ Upright Dips: 15@45/10@BW - haven't done upright dips in awhile, but I felt like they would be good to add to an upper body workout.

    By this time we were a bit rushed as we still wanted to get to the grocery store before it closed so for cardio I just went on the treadmill for 20 minutes (my "plan" calls for 30) I was on a 5 incline at 4.0 mph (reading MD again).

    Preworkout supps:
    1 Sesaglow
    2 Red Acid
    1 Scoop EL Green MAG

    During Workout:
    Water

    Post-Workout supps:
    Protein Shake
    1/2 Whole Wheat bagle w/almond butter - for anyone who hasn't tried almond butter, try it! It is awesome!!

    Today's workout gets an A+ or a 10 out of 10. I tossed around some heavy weight, got enough sets and reps to really work the muscle and even got a good sweat going during my cardio, I'm totally pumped about it. I want to make tomorrow's workout just as good, I actually think I'm going to go do some cardio in the morning before work, outside, our place is basically built on the side of a huge hill so going out walking around here is a major cardio event.

    A big thanks goes out to 5-6 for hooking me up with some supps to go along with my next log, I'm looking forward to it, but I'm hating the fact that my GreenMAG log is going to be ending....I needs to get me some GreenMAG running straight from the tap here!!!
