    Cool Tina's Building It UP with Pure-Amino




    Many thanks to tatteredsaint and Betancourt for the chance to do this log.

    Generalities
    Graduate student (almost done!!!), training/lifting for 4ish years. My focus is always on compound movements. I run a very messy upper/lower split. I train as often as possible, for as hard as possible. I just got done with a 9 day total break (for traveling/work), so I'm ready to get back at it.

    I am looking at fulfilling one of my New Years Goals this March - which is to compete in a strong(wo)man contest. I just need to check to make sure I can handle the weights. No zeros allowed.

    I'm currently sitting around 131 and wouldn't mind gaining some weight along with strength increases. As much as I love BCAAs during dieting, there will be no dieting in this log. I usually have trouble eating enough and haven't seen any huge weight increases in the last few months that I've been "bulking".

    Important note!! I don't always include tons of information - my style of writing tends to be 'short', but I love discussion/talk about training/diet/nutrition. So jump in at any point!


    Training
    As mentioned my workouts do not follow a set program. Generally, I aim to squat 2-3x/week, DL 1x, bench 2x and OHP 2x. Accessories will include squat variations, rows, bench variations, more rows, pullups and the occasional curl or tricep work. And lots of shoulder prehab work as I'm coming off an injury.

    During the week I train at a 24hr fitness and I'll be going to a strongman gym Saturdays. If the contest is a go, I'll organize the next 6 weeks to train towards that.



    Experience
    I have it.






    But only when dieting, so this will be a new one for me. I'll be taking 2 scoops per workout (12g of BCAAs). This is on the low end for me(usually hit closer to 40g ), but that was when dieting and I'd like the log to last a little bit longer.

    I got the fruit punch flavor, which tends to be hit or miss for me. This is my first time trying a Betancourt product. Tomorrow will be the first workout and first time squatting (lower body day) in 10 days. I'm sure I'll be sore following it.

    I'm with you in the flavor. FP are mostly a miss with me. I've tried 100s of FP supplements and there was 1 i liked and 1 did not hate lol.
    I have a bottle waiting for me at home that I'm anxious to try.
    Would like to see videos of that competition!

    Good luck on your journey Tina!

    And... today's workout should not have been done on account of the soreness/tightness I accumulated from yesterday's upper body training. But I did it anyways. These numbers and volume are a little low (okay, a lot low) for me. I expect them to increase significantly over the next week.

    Back squats
    135x5(x3)
    155x5

    Single leg extensions
    70x10(x4)

    Zercher squats
    65x8(x3)


    yes. that was it.


    I ended up only taking one scoop of pure-amino itra-workout. The flavor was not pleasant (to say the best). I've since realized that there are no artificial colors or sweeteners in it and that might explain the lack of sweetness. I will probably be either 1.)mixing with sugar/gatorade/OJ or 2.) drinking in as little water as possible as quickly as possible

    Props for still getting in a sesh even though sore/tight.

    Getting the wife to squat as well, starting off with Smith Squats but will move her over to the REAL thing probably next week. She normally does leg press but want to switch it up for her.

    Nice work on the squats. Not a fan of the fruit punch either, but maybe it will wear on me after a few workouts.

    Thanks. Squats are great, and BB squats have really improved my whole body composition - the faster you can get her off smith squats the better.

    I do find the "no artificial sweeteners" really attractive. I try to limit consumption of them, but have never gone out of my way to buy a product without them. I noticed that it has stevia in it, which might be why it tastes slightly odd to me, I've heard that once you get used to it, it's a great replacement for other types (fake or real) of sugars. I think I will give it a few weeks without mixing with gatorade/sugar and see if my thoughts change.

    Usually fruit punch flavors are too sweet for me, in fake way, I found this very different, and knowing that it doesn't have artificial sweeteners makes me more appreciative/receptive to it.

I think I will give it a few weeks without mixing with gatorade/sugar and see if my thoughts change.

    Usually fruit punch flavors are too sweet for me, in fake way, I found this very different, and knowing that it doesn't have artificial sweeteners makes me more appreciative/receptive to it.
    gotcha , stevia is a great sweetener but it typically takes some getting used to for me when it's used in any product , I try to limit artificial and real sugars pretty much year round so I've been looking forward to this release hopefully it grows on you

    The gym is crazy in the evening - I wouldn't be able to focus/train well at all. So I'm stuck with waking up early.

    Superpump seems to be the preworkout I keep coming back to. Just a decent/easy to handle product overall. I do like other preworkouts, but I usually burn out on them about 3/4 of the way through the bottle.

    lol. just suck it up.

    I took two scoops today and mixed it in my preworkout. Best day yet for the flavor and I'm hoping I don't get as sore from todays workout.

    Tuesday 2/5/13

    2 scoops of pure-amino today. Today was the best workout I've had since my deload. Although I still have a lot of issues with endurance/form, it's slowly falling back into place. Hopefully by next week i'll be ready to really start rolling. Need to up the food, as I haven't been eating enough.

    Back squats
    135x5
    155x5(x2)
    165x5(x2)
    - small increase from last session
    - squat form is awkward/bad, feels like I'm starting over from the beginning

    Zercher squats
    95x8(x3)

    Single Leg extensions
    70x10(x4)

    RDLs
    135x8
    155x8
    165x8(x2)

    Pullups
    BWx8(x3)
    - pretty sure this is a rep/set PR. Will introduce weighted pullups next time/week

    Nice job on the squats and PR for the pull-ups. I went with 2 scoops pure-amino intra this morning. Think it tasted slightly better.

    Thanks. You should have seen me last month - 18 days straight of squatting. I could not believe I kept hitting the same numbers day in day out. Does create overuse injuries, so now just 2-3x/week.

    lol. I thought the same thing. 2 scoops = better flavor. (??)

    the 2 scoop thing doesn't make sense, but it's fine with me.
