    Thursday

    Flat bench superset facepull 4 sets
    Flat bench superset with standing shoulder press machine 4 sets
    Cable Crossover superset with side lateral raise 2 sets

    Did not sleep well at all Wendesday into Thursday. Went out for my co worker leaving for the military and had some beer. Probably threw off my sleep pattern. But I wasn't highly motivated for the gym. For me the plan was to get into the gym. Do some supersets on some machines and get the volume I need and get out. Didn't work like that and I'm happy it didn't. Benching wasn't the best weight but it felt really good. The 7th and 8th set I had to reduce weight because I was feeling fatigued in the muscle but the squeeze was great. Also loved the face pull because my necks been bothering me since vacation, hotel pillows and then the first back workout in a week and I was tight. The face pulls seemed to loosen things up. I also used this super old machine at the gym for shoulder press, I took the seat completely out and turned it into a standing shoulder press which felt really good.

    So the workout wasn't too bad, volume was a tad low but it was better than I expected.

    Monday

    Squat superset with pull ups 6 sets
    Leg press superset with t bar row 4 sets
    Standing Calve raise superset with straight bar pulldown 2 sets

    For anyone new to the log I'm logging Laxogenin 100 for Hi-Tech. I was super excited to get to the gym and get down to business. Two weeks ago I was on vacation and last week the gym was hit and miss so I want to get back on track. The gym was super stuffy, the owner has been good with the AC this summer but he had it off for whatever reason. Even before I got under the bar for the first set I was sweating. The squats and pull ups felt pretty good though. One of the last sets of squat, I got some neck pain, I've been dealing with neck issues for years now. But it didn't start really hurting until leg press, I planned on doing 6 sets of leg press but my body just wasn't having it. I was getting pain shooting around my eye and my legs were mush.

    Again for anyone new. My cardio of choice this summer has been farmers walks on the treadmill. I either do a minute on and a minute off which I did yesterday or 20 seconds on and 40 seconds off. Depending on how I feel and the weight I use. If the gym is empty I'll go heavy and walk the length of the gym but that's rare.

    First day of a new product is kind of useless, I don't expect to see anything yet but I have high hopes for the product.

    After breakfast and my morning dose, I threw up? I've always thought I had a minor allergy to eggs but I've been able to eat them without any problems. Today I was coughing like I was starting to get sick and they came up. I don't think it's the product and more of an isolated incident but I will continue to monitor.

    Tuesday

    Hammer strength press superset with side lateral raise 4 sets
    Decline hammer strength superset with face pulls 4 sets
    Cable crossover from low cable superset with wide grip high row 4 sets

    For anyone who is new. I found this summer that using the hammer strengths on the weeks I only do chest once feels like it gives me the best benefit. The stretch and squeeze I get are amazing. Anyway the workout went well the weight felt a lot lighter than it did last week. So I'll continue to increase the weight from here. The owner thankfully had the AC on today but it didn't take long to get a good sweat going. Had a really solid pump in my chest. Was wearing one of those dri fit shirts and the chest was clearly pumped in the mirror.

    I'm posting tonight because Wednesday is my birthday and I'm going to an amusement park. The good thing is it's going to be hot out so the walking in the heat should be beneficial. Wednesday is usually cardio and I figure some laps around the park will help.

    Wednesday

    Went to Six Flags for my birthday and definitely walked a good amount. It was also super hot and humid so I was dripping sweat most of the day. I guess it replaced my cardio day at the gym. However I have not been to an amusement park in awhile. At first we went on the roller coasters and I was fine. We got to one and I got dizzy on it. After that we went on the safari which was fun. But after that I rode a coaster and got extremely dizzy. After that we went on a few more tame rides and back to another coaster and bam half way through my smile went to straight horror. I was super dizzy, not a throw up feeling but a I need to sit down feeling. Even the drive home I still didn't feel 100%. Woke up this morning feeling ok but now I'm dizzy at work, hopefully this goes away and doesn't interrupt deadlifts tonight.

    My father has vertigo when he drives long distances or flies. I hope this is an isolated incident and that's not what I have to deal with but how I felt is exactly how it describes.

    Thursday

    Deadlift 6 sets
    Goblet squat superset with wide grip lat pulldown 4 sets
    Standing Calve raise superset with straight bar pulldown 2 sets

    Wasn't sure how it would workout with the deadlifts but it went surprisingly well. I didn't go super heavy because of the dizziness and I haven't really deadlifted in weeks. But the deadlifts themselves felt good and smooth. In between sets I grabbed a band and did some hitchhikers. My thought process was that I have neck issues and if they contributed to the dizziness I would try and do some things they had me do in physical therapy to try and adjust it. The whole workout felt really good though. I feel like if I was 100% my strength would be improving. My legs did feel like jello afterwards, walking down the steps at the gym was sort of a task.

    Last night in the mirror I looked like the little bit of bloat and fat I gained from vacation and not having a great training week last night has went away. I looked pretty lean which I was happy about. Hopefully this continues as I'm only at 4 days with the Lax, but if this is a sign, should be in for a treat.
