"This Isn't Supposed to Happen."12/17/12
During a recent seminar, I literally spent 8 solid hours demonstrating how I train different body parts. Going into it, I wasn't sure if we'd have breaks or not, so I decided to pulse Mag-10 the entire day as kind of an insurance policy.
I had breakfast that morning and I then loaded a mix of Mag-10® in a big Nalgene bottle before heading out. I started to get hungry an hour or two into the seminar, so I started sipping Mag-10®. Every hour or so I'd take a few big gulps and continue on. I finished the last of the Mag-10® by the end of the day and headed home for a solid meal.
"Here's where the fun begins."
Now here's where the fun begins. The next morning I was really worried that I'd be weak due to having eaten very little solid food the previous day. I had chest and shoulders to train and I started off with a machine press. When I'm feeling really strong I can do 6 to 8 good reps with the stack, but get this – I did 22 reps on my last set!
My training partners were freaked out and didn't know what to think.
"This isn't supposed to happen."
We moved on to the incline barbell press. I usually do sets of 6 to 8 reps and work up to about 315, where on a good day I might get 8 reps. This time I did 15 reps! Next was the Smith decline press. I usually get up to around 375 for a triple, but much to my surprise, I did 8 reps!
This isn't supposed to happen. My strength went up – and stayed up – on all my lifts! Talk about getting excited, talk about not being able to wait until the next workout!
"I figured I'd take advantage of the situation."
Here's something else I started doing. During the week I train at night and have my last meal of the day after my workout. Those of you who know my story know that I lost my large intestine from a vascular disease and that frequently causes me to wake up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom.
I figured I'd take advantage of the situation. We all know that we need to keep protein synthesis on for as long as possible, so I started pulsing another 3-4 scoops of Mag-10® when I wake up during the night. I'd never tell people to set their alarms to pulse, but since I'm already up, I figured, hey, why not keep growing?
"I'm soooo sold on Mag-10®."
The result is that I've continued to make progress at jaw-dropping speed. I am sooo sold on Mag-10® and Mag-10® pulsing!
