Alright! One down!
I am so proud of myself that I made it to the orientation day, after a night shift, with no sleep!
I’m gonna have to give big shout outs to my old friend caffeine and my new friend Opus by Magnum, because without them I’m certain I would not have made it through the day!
Seriously though, I went to Yoga AND crossfit today and I’m still awake and coherent enough to type this.
Today was my first day using a preworkout, and I’m happy with the results. The flavour is not the greatest (some sort of artificial sweetener, tastes like that chalky bubblegum from childhood) but it definitely did the trick. I used only one scoop today, because it’s my first time, and I didn’t want to give myself heart palpitations. It’s stimulant free, so there was no big rush, but I could certainly tell something different was happening.
I did feel tingly (thanks to the Beta Alanine) and I noticed less pain and better endurance during the workouts. Even when I knew my muscles were fatigued, I was able to push through and keep going to get reps.
Final verdict is that I like this product, and even though the flavour is not the greatest, I will definitely continue to use it.
I’ll stick to the one scoop before workouts rather than the two, only because most days will be 2-a-days and the max dose per day is two scoops.
The guy who works there suggested Opus by Magnum. He also recommended I start Fish Oils (10g/day) and a greens supplement.
He let me try half a scoop, and it’s not horrible, but I definitely feel tingly. It’s a stim/caffeine free product, so I won’t get the jitters and I won’t crash after it wears off. He said it will definitely help with my endurance during bootcamp and with my half marathon training coming up.
So yeah. I’m gonna take a full scoop before I head out to BootCamp orientation, and I’ll post a followup on my firblr.
3x barbell conplex@45/65/85
6 Snatch DL
6 Hang Snatch
6 behind the neck push press
10x200m sprints (walk back rest)
A good goal should scare you a little and excite you a lot.
I’m trying to come up with a really good reason to not signup for another month of crossfit bootcamp.
It starts on Monday, and other than the cost… I can’t really think of one.
