Time to get the ball rolling...

First workout done today:

Push Press: r/upto 65kgx5

Pull ups: 7,5,6,4

Flat DB Bench: r/upto 60kgx5

Single arm DB Rows: r/upto 32kgx5

Med Ball Throws: 12 in total

Barbell Curls: r/upto 40kgx6



r/upto means ramped up to, also did alot of slow band pull aparts between sets of pressing exercises. Nothing was taken to failure, trying to be explosive on every rep.

Had a tonne of energy in the gym, mind felt on fire the whole time and for a couple of hours afterwards, not sure if this was due to being truly activated or still incredibly excited to be beginning this journey!

weight this morning was 209, lets see where we can take this!

Aloha Perficio,

Sorry I am late to the welcome wagon. I always try to beat Chris to welcome the newbies first, however have been a little busy and I allowed him to get here first. LOL

Welcome to the Indigo 'ohana'. Some of this information you might all ready be aware of, but I have been posting this in the new logs, hope it helps. :-)

Helpful Hints:

1. Don't wait to up your carbs
2. Get rid of any unhealthy carbs...keep them all clean
3. Get rid of wheat; though not a requirement, but most of us have switched over to gluten free products and recipes. A lot of us use rice based cereals like Cream of Rice or Rice & Shine; some use Cream of Buckwheat, or even Quinoa flakes.
4. Get rid of dairy/milk and switch over to Unsweetened Almond Milk or Unsweetened Coconut Milk, both are AWESOME!
5. Be leary of too much Oatmeal as the Avenin in it will have the same affect as the gluten does in wheat
6. Don't drink any form of Tea (Red, Black, White, Green) this will block the effects of Indigo-3G.
7. Don't take any concentrated forms of greens like Superfood, etc.
8. You don't need to take a fat burner while using Indigo-3G
9. Start saving money up now because you'll need to buy new clothes
10. Enjoy the ride...you'll want to just keep going, but be aware of how your body is feeling. A lot of us learned early on that Indigo-3G allows us to just keep going and we did, but then we fried our CNS. We have all since learned to take a break from time to time and do some Neural recharging type workouts.
11. Ask lots of questions over in the LiveSpill.
12. (like BiP says) Get lots of good quality sleep.
13. (like BiP says) Use Neural Charge workouts - you could devote one day a week to them, doing 1 or 2, or once every could of months do an entire week of NC only, or neural charge and high frequency strength work
14. (like BiP says and I totally agree) Drink 1-2 scoops Power Drive post workout, especially after NC workouts. Very good for neural recovery

Oh yeah...BTW

15. (Worth mentioning again) There is a guy on Indigo that you have to be leery of, especially be careful when you open up his log, he goes by Hip Scar. He seems like a nice enough person, nothing really abnormal about him except well ... he takes a lot of 'black box' pictures. Make sure you're in a location that other people cannot view your screen.
16. Another member to be watchful of is seph89 he is a little bit out there and always is spouting off BBBBBRRRRRAAAAAIIIIINNN CAAANNNNDDYYYYYYY and at times can give TMI. :-)
17. Oh yes...fruit...only eat it early in the morning's.
18. Drop all forms of 'fruit' juices. Full of sugar's.

Come over to the daily Live Coaching lab as there is a ton of amazing information shared every day; along with the the information we tend to spill lots of antics, razzing general harassment of our fellow teammates...all in good fun.


Again, welcome to the 'ohana'.

Tunya

cheers for the welcome guys, will get the rest of my starting photos uploaded later on

todays workout:

squats: r/upto 100kgx3

power snatch from blocks (knee height) : r/upto 45kgx3

sled work

abs

squats did not feel good at all today so cut them off fairly early, snatches on the other hand felt really good, very solid and explosive. Did some of the holds CTs written about and felt good working them in, will keep them up, and as always now had the daily jumps in there too

Yesterday I had some birthday benching;

Flat Bench: r/upto 80kgx4

Pull ups 5,5,5,4

Single DB Overhead Press: r/upto 22kgx6

Pendlay Rows r/upto 60x6

Push Press med ball throws 12 in total

DB hammer curls 3x10


Back wasn't feeling great, think with all the band work aswell I may have started off with a bit too much volume, will reassess this over the weekend

Today:

Deadlift r/upto 125kgx3

Power snatch from pins (just above knees) r/upto 45kgx5

legs still felt really sore from wednesday, think this was just due to not training properly for about 3 weeks before now and being away on holiday last week, also had some personal stuff to deal with so cut the session short today and will drag the sled tomorrow to get some blood through the legs and to make up for the shortened session today. snatch already feels 100% better

In the middle of exams so haven't been able to update, but still been in the gym lifting and with my second bottle of indigo finished (just over 4 weeks in) figured it was time to post some progress pics up.

weight this morning was 211, so up 3 lbs from when I began, but noticing alot more muscle mass everywhere and can tell from the fit of shirts and trousers that there's been a good bit of recomp, strength's improved aswell. Might be time to invest in a tape measure to keep more accurate measurements though.

not great quality pictures i know, but they keep track of progress for me. Had my american football end of season awards dinner during the week and won offensive mvp, managed 1090 yards and 19 tds over 8 regular season games and a playoff game so am pretty happy with that, especially when we only play 12 minute quarters, time to start building towards next season now though!

only other thought i've had, seen in the spill the past couple of days people mentioning leaving 2 hours between a meal and their next dose of indigo, for the most part i've stuck to one hour (sometimes longer, depending on hunger and feel really) just wondering if I was still leaving long enough between meals and indigo or if i should extend how long i'm waiting?

Had a very good bench session yesterday, played some basketball and football (soccer) too. Woke up this morning with a very tight low trap which made everything in the gym extremley difficult, coupled with the fact that it's constantly making me feel winded too so left the gym and hit a tonne of sled work instead. Shame as i was feeling very on it neurally and was looking forward to squatting today, will just have to get at it next week instead

Today marks my first day down at 4 caps a day, having finished a full 12 weeks at full dosage. Weight this morning was 211lbs so a 3lb increase over the 12 weeks, but also noticeably more muscular and leaner, and a lot stronger so am very happy with my 12 week run. Time to take it to the next level though! Here are my current pics
