Bootcamp W1D1

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.

Went to Popeye’s today

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.

Rita Benavidez: Hahahahahaha they can’t all be hits, but this is definitely a win. I want to emphasize that I was NOT injured at all!!!! I wanted to share because the struggle is real, and frankly I die of laughter every time I watch this. It looks so bad. I’m by no means an excellent lifter but really more of a work in progress, who isn’t right?! Here I was trying to PR my snatch at 172. But….
