A day in the life of Luigi Fagiani

March 02, 2015


Every day I work to be stronger than my last session, training to beat my numbers from bench day or squat day. Whether it’s more reps or more weight, I will never be as weak as I was yesterday. I inspire myself to be better. I am my motivation.” – Luigi Fagiani // Powerlifter

Sunday, March 1st 2015 – Squat Day


I squat at least once a week usually on Sunday mornings and I may add a squat session in on Wednesday if I’m feeling good.


9:30am Breakfast/Preworkout Meal |1 cup of eggs whites, 3-4 whole eggs and 2 slices of wheat toast with a glass of Orange Juice.


10:30am Preworkout | As I start to get ready I’ll make my pre-workout which is either Jack3d or AminoLIFT depending on what kind of workout it is. Today’s workout will be working with about 40-60% of my max for 5×3 with paused squats. It’ll be a longer than normal workout out so I’ll take AminoLIFT to keep me going.


11:00am Workout | After I get all my stuff ready and get dressed I’ll mix up 2 1/2 scoops of ModernBCAA+ (my favorite two flavors are grape or watermelon) and I’ll drink this throughout my workout.


Warm up, stretch and roll out with the foam roller (I have the rumble roller which I feel like is the best roller in the market, very well made and really digs in.) Today’s workout is 45-60% of Max. Today I’m using 405 for 5 sets of 3 paused warm ups which will include:




Then my work sets will be 405x5x3. After this I’ll roll out again and move on to leg curls and leg extensions, superset, moderate weight for 5 sets of about 12-15. Finally, I finish the workout off with some hyper extensions with a band at the bottom and then looped around my neck to add some added resistance. After my workout I’ll stretch out again and drink a Gatorade with 1 1/2 scoops of ModernCREATINE.


1:00 Post Workout Meal | Steak and potatoes

April 27, 2017

Leg day; most lifters either love it or hate it.   However, the majority of us, no matter how we feel about grueling through rep after rep of squats until the need to find the nearest trash can for quick breakfast disposal, will do it anyway. One might say leg day is, “a necessary evil.” […]

Although S’mores are usually associated with camping, at USPlabs we’ve decided these treats are too good to reserve to a single season. Marshmallow, chocolate, and graham cracker are made for each other; but, what if you added protein to the equation? We reached out to our one of our top Barbell Club members to create […]
