First Impressions

First thing fellas: the label looks damn promising and that you can be sure of! I completely disregarded (much the same way I did with SpeedX3 haha) the label telling me to get acquainted by using 1 scoop to start off with. AIN’T NOBODY GOT TIME FO’ DAT! I threw in 2 scoops immediately after cracking the tub open after I shot up from being thinking I had overslept. The container is super small. Almost like everything is micronized. For those of you that have used Enhanced the size of this container will be nothing new to you. The scooper, much like the container, is equally as small. Now I wasn’t sure if I was only supposed to fill it up to the little line where the handle meets the scoop or if I was supposed to completely top off the scooper so I just loaded that bad boy up twice and threw it into about 10oz. of cold water. The smell is definitely very apple like and the taste… sweet Jesus have mercy. Have you guys ever tried those Sour Apple Blow Pops (say from Charms!) before? This is the EXACT same flavor. Tasted great, no strange after taste, no burning sensation on the way down, and it lingering just slightly after I swallowed it. Very delightful. I have recently switched back over to doing the IFProtocol for my diet so although the label says take before eating I took it a few hours prior to working out (my first meal is usually the post workout meal). I’m actually about to take my third and final scoop of the day right now and get to eating my lunch. Hard to tell of any effects from it just yet. Although it appears to contain thermogenic ingredients I didn’t really feel anything yet. It certainly helped keep my appetite suppressed as I got towards the end of my 16 hour fast. I’m sure I’ll be able to feel this more the further into the log I go!

Until next time,

Genomyx ORIGIN Log Day 8: ARMS

DAY 8: ARMS

So much for not feeling that back workout yesterday during the workout… woke up today sore as ****! Something must have been working! Slept great and woke up ready to get back into the gym. I wanted to do shoulders but since I hit some of that during yesterdays back workout I decided to hold off and do arms instead. Threw down 2 scoops of ORIGIN and headed for the gym.

WRIST CURLS: 40×20 60×20,20,20 (prev. 60×20,20,15)

REVERSE CURLS: 20×20 50×10+40×10 40×20,20 (each set 10 reps wrists tilted down/10 reps wrists tilted up)

HAMMER CURLS: 20×15 25×15,15,15,15 (wt. ea. hand… up since last time )

TRICEP PUSHDOWN: 45×20,20,20,20 (10 reps underhand/10 reps overhand)

OVERHEAD DB EXTENSION: 30×20,20,20 35×20 (may have to rotate this with skullcrushers since I don’t feel it as much as I think I should)

CLOSE GRIP BENCHPRESS: 75×15,15,15,15 (still not sure about these… I still feel it in my chest? Maybe I need to go more narrow)

STRAIGHT BAR CURL: 40×20,20 40×10+30×10 30×20

INCLINE DB CURL: 15×10+10×10 10×20

CONCENTRATION CURL: 10×20,20

I’m not sure what I would be doing if I wasn’t working with this much volume because ORIGIN gives me energy for DAYS. Although next week I will be switching the rep counts lower and working with some heavier weights for this workout. I have always responded very well to the low weight/high rep scheme (although feeling like I get some strange looks in the gym for lifting what appears to be extremely light weight :\) but I’d like to switch it up every once in awhile and get back the medium/heavy weights and keep the muscles guessing. Due to the fact that I’m currently training for the mini-marathon I’ve decided to take my leg workout out completely. It’s difficult to lift legs and then try and run long distances the following or a few days following that routine. So for now my split has become: CHEST/BACK/ARMS/SHOULDERS with cardio around 3-4x a week. I’ve really been enjoying my new routine right now and hope to see results in the mirror…

Genomyx ORIGIN Log Day 6: CHEST

DAY 6: CHEST

This time I took 3 scoops of ORIGIN prior to my workout since I was pretty tired from working the night before and needed a little extra kick to get myself into the workout mood. I had such a high amount of energy that I didn’t want to leave the gym after my workout concluded… and I didn’t even want to go to bed when I got home but I had to force myself to relax (thanks, benadryl )

DB PULLOVER: 40x10WU 60×10,10,10 felt kinda easy so… 75×10

BARBELL INCLINE PRESS: 45x10WU 95×10 115×10 135×8 115×10

FLAT BENCH BARBELL PRESS: 45x10WU 135x10WU 155×10 175×8 155×9 (fail @ 10) 135×8 (fail @ 9)

HS CHEST PRESS: 100×10,10,10,10

INCLINE DB FLYS: 20s x10,10,10,10

MACHINE FLYS: 100×10,10,10,10

Needless to say my chest is sore as **** today. After the last of the pressing movements it didn’t even feel like I was lifting anything during the fly movements which made me kind of upset because I didn’t feel like I was working anything. Woke up today realizing that just because you don’t get a pump from the workout doesn’t mean you aren’t activating the fibers lol. ORIGIN did its job again today at giving me great focus, drive, and maintaining my intensity. Rest periods were incredibly short. I had a partner lifting with me today so whenever he finished his set (of the same reps I was doing) we’d switch places. We got out of there just a little over an hour. Quick, effective workout.

Stay tuned,

DJ

Genoymx ORIGIN Log Day 5: ARMS

DAY 5: ARMS

The day I worked chest during the “blizzard” I actually wanted to do chest/tris but didn’t have the time. I didn’t feel like doing my back/bis routine just yet because I want my legs to have some more rest so I just decided to throw Tris/Bis together and give it a run. I enjoyed it

STRAIGHT BAR WRIST CURLS: 40×20 60×20,20,15

STRAIGHT BAR REVERSE CURLS: 40×20 50×20,20 40×20 (sets split: 10 reps wrists up, 10 reps wrists down)

HAMMER CURLS: 20s x 15,15,15,15,15

STRAIGHT BAR TRICEP PUSHDOWNS: 40×20 50×20,20 45×20 (sets split: 10 underhand, 10 overhand)

OVERHEAD DB TRICEP EXTENSION: 30s x 20,20,20,20

CLOSE GRIP BARBELL BENCHPRESS: 65×15 85×15 95×15,15

STRAIGHT BAR BICEP CURLS: 30×20,20,20,20

INCLINE DB CURLS: 10s x 20,20,20,20

This log is starting to become the light weight high rep special haha… it’ll switch back to what I usually do here next week. This workout was AWESOME. I’ve never actually specifically trained forearms so that was a first. After the last couple of sets of reverse curls my forearms were about to explode. As I moved on to the tricep pushdowns they felt really easy and I was concerned I wasn’t going heavy enough but as I approached the last two sets my triceps were on fire. Walked out of the gym with stiff arms and felt fantastic. Again ORIGIN helped me go the distance here. Although ORIGIN may not necessarily be a “pump” product, my arms were certainly swollen as I left the gym. Concentration was dead on and energy levels were high and never diminished.

Genomyx ORIGIN Log Day 2: CHEST

This workout was done after working a nightshift which was my 5th night in a row. Needless to say I was extremely tired but happy to get a workout in before the holiday hiatus of visiting family/friends. It was my intention for this workout to drop the poundages and instead focus on the stretch and squeeze/contraction of each repetition in order to get maximum hypertrophy. So feel free to laugh at the weight I used, but I was freaking exhausted at the end. 30 second rest between sets. Took Origin while I was sitting in my car outside the gym and I have to attribute Origin with being the reason that I was actually able to make it through the entire workout. All I wanted to do was go home and sleep.

DB PULLOVER: 40×20,20,20,20

INCLINE BARBELL PRESS: 95×12+8@75, 75×11+7@65, 65×8+9@45, 45×9 with failure (these were particularly excruciating)

FLAT BARBELL BENCHPRESS: 75×20,20,20,20

CHEST PRESS: 70×20,20,20 60×18 with failure

INCLINE FLYS: 10s x15,15,16,18

MACHINE FLYS: 69×29 75×20,15 90×11 with failure

Origin is made this workout a huge success. The weights weren’t high, but the rest periods were short and the repetitions were numerous and afterwards it felt like two pitbulls were hanging off of my pectorals. This soreness lasted me 3 days into my Christmas vacation and I loved every minute of it. It would have been easy to sit underneath the barbell during flat press and just crank through 20 reps of 75 easily, but when you slow the process down and ensure that each rep is perfect, that only the chest is doing the exercise, that you make sure you feel the stretch at the bottom and as you press up you try and squeeze your pecs together like you are holding a quarter in place between them… you definitely have an extremely intense and rewarding workout. And Origin had the mind-muscle connection LOCKED DOWN tight. I was intensely focused on every single rep of each exercise. I was energized again after taking it, especially from working a 12 hour shift when all you want to do is sleep! Felt GREAT
