vince spiders blue up stimm free log
Vince Spider did an unsponsered log of the stim-free Blue-up. I did as one as well.(about a year ago)http://anabolicminds.com/forum/suppl...on-s-stim.html I also put pictures in mine. Skip to the end to see the progress pictures. many say the Trib doesnt do gains. From what i know Trib needs to be high proto at least 30 -40 % or higher. The Longjack works and boosting test , i believe.
I liked the fact Vince put his lifts down each week and how much weight was increased. he made some nice strength gains.
I did the same and although blue up isn't a powerful hormone it did give me a boost to train eight weeks using Dc. usually after six weeks of Dc I would get tired. In conclusion blue up adds recovery time and a bit more in the tank than normal.
haha and the fact he gets ready to fight some punk kid in traffic and blames it in the blue up testosterone levels lmaoooo.....
Ps someone might want to do a review on my log. Esp since I posted before , during, and after photos.

Let's Review Rosie!
This particular thread was chosen not because it displays any incredible progress or change in the user, but rather for her attention to detail and descriptive analysis of her experience.
Guejsn refers to her thread as a "mini review", which really is a goodname for it, as it is her first impressions of Green Magnitude after only one usage. She begins with a link for more information on Green Mag and follows with a brief description of its intended effects - always a good thing. When reading a review for a product I am interested in, a link to a detailed description and/or retailer makes learning about the product much easier.
Like most reviews, she utilizes the 1-10 number scale to indicate her like or dislike for the subjects various aspects. This method is hardly my favorite, but provided it is couple with an explanation for each score, it certainly can fulfill its intended purpose. And Rosie gives fine additional information along with her numeric scores, giving the reader an actual understanding of how the supplement performed and not just an arbitrary number.
She begins with taste, giving it a 10 and claiming it is the "best tasting supplement she has ever had. I agree that Green Mag does taste great (it turns even bulk p-slin and BCAAs into a palatable intra-workout drink) but, honestly, it wouldn't top my list; there are several supplements I use that would eek past it. However, this factor is a matter of opinion and I am glad for Rosie that she so enjoyed her sample's flavor.
She goes on to evaluate solubility, strength, energy, endurance, performance, protein synthesis and closes with an overall score; awarding Green Magnitude a 7.5. For her, Green Mag's strong points were it's taste, it's solubility and the endurance it afforded throughout her workout. Solubility is not something I have ever given much thought to, but Green Mag does, in fact, dissolve quite readily and quickly. The endurance it provides is certainly a step up from Creatine Monohydrate, in my opinion; I see why Guejsn considers this one of its strong points.
Now, this was a review of a sample - a single serving; and as such, no real difference or noticeable overall progress could be distinguished, which Rosie readily acknowledges. Therefore, when answering the question "Would She Use This Again?", Rosie bases her answer more seemingly off of the ingredients, comparing it to Neovar Recomped or Cre02. IMO, if given the choice, I'd stack Green Mag with Neovar (I haven't tried CreO2 and so cannot comment). Neovar's repartitioning capacities lend itself towards use in the presence of carbs, while Green Mag, being easily soluble and great tasting is perfect for intra-workout. But then again, I'm much larger than Rosie's petite 5'2" frame and as such, am sure one creatine or the other is sufficient for her.
Rosie gives her honest opinion and a good and detailed evaluation of her experience. Such feedback on a free sample is considerate of her, I think. It was a fair bit of effort for such a small thing.

When scooped directly in your mouth, its a sweet/salty taste that almost is reminiscent of fried foods. I really like the taste of it!
Simply put, this stuff does not mix in liquids. It just floats at the top. The scooper however is small, and the taste of the powder is mild, so I recommend scooping it directly in the mouth and chasing with water.
Taken 1-2 scoops every day.
While it's only been about 2 weeks on GG, the results have been very good. What's interesting is that you need to increase you water intake when taking GlycerGROW, in order for you to a) make it work better and b) not become dehydrated. I thought it was going to be tough to drink so much water, however once you take the GG you become sort of dry-mouthed and thirsty. This is a good feeling because you know GG is putting the H20 where it needs to go: into your muscles, cells, etc. So drinking more water on this stuff is actually pleasant-I didn't have to force any down!
The pumps have been really good. while I lift for strength and hypertrophy and not so much the pumps, it is a pleasant side effect.
The endurance with GG has been very surprising. I've felt more energy and will-to-lift during my workouts. I'm quite surprised at this.
The biggest effect of GG has been the volumization. They don't lie when they say "Cell BURST Formula". I've seen myself being much more vascular and full, since starting. I've opted for smaller doses everyday, instead of large doses a few times per week. I feel this has kept me 'swelled' up and volumized. I really can't wait for this stuff during the summer!!" by RENEGADE ROWS
RENEGADE ROWS did a great job at reviewing GlycerGROW (GG). i myself have used GG and it lasts for a very very long time!
i agree with RR pretty much all the way through.....the only thing i didnt feel when i used it was the pumps...but i could care less about those. it doesnt mix at all in the water...so your gunna have to "parachute" it.but its worth it! i too felt "swelled up" as it allows you to drink more water, and allows more water into cells! and the endurance was surprising as he puts it...i like the overall way he describes exactly what he likes about the product and how he is honest with his review (seeming as he is a rep).i also enjoy the number ratings, very helpful!
and i have to thank RR for his advice in using CL products as he got me into them, and they have been very good, well priced, productive products!
and if you havent tried Green mag....do it! .............NOW!!!!
and i would recommend stacking GG with some sort of creatine, as both will help hydrate your cells and keep you running while working out, or whatever your doing!

Controlled Labs Black Hole Review
i have wanted to know about BlackHole for a while now, and all the reviews i have seen arent that great, i want to try it out one of these days, but the reviews kinda want to make me wanna stay away.......how ever it does look promising, its coming from a great company that has all great products..... i dont really see how it can go wrong lol
i like the review because it was done on a smaller person, the thing i dont like is that it was done on a ill person about to receive a stem cell transplant, i wouldnt be messing with supplements before an operation this serious lol
one day im gunna try it and log it! some times you just gotta see for your self!

Things I enjoyed about this log
- Details were good. Everything about the workouts were listed.
- Focused in on the improved taste of the product which (to some people) meant a lot in this scenerio. I enjoy the taste of either one to be honest.
- Like that he spoke about the bcaa's ability to stifle hunger.
- Increased strength with almost every workout.
What I did not enjoy about this log
- It seems that it was only updated on workout days. Less than 2 full pages for what looks to have been about a 40 day log. Thats upsetting because even on off days you want to know that the product is being used in conjunction with daily nutrition.
- There was not much (if anything) listed about nutrition in the log. It makes it easier to understand how a product works with the more you know about the person testing.
- No after pictures (or videos) were posted...just the 2 pics in the beginning and the one video very early on.
- Final review was a bit soft. He gave a 10/10 for all 3 topics discussed (which i agree with)...but there was only 3 discussed. I know from much personal experience that with a bcaa/eaa product (especially purple wraath)...you can talk for days on the effects alone.
My final review of this review
Im sorry Smeton...but it was not one of my favorites. If I had to rate on a 1-10 scale..it'd be holding middle ground between 4-6
***I chose to review this log not because I wanted to pick on anyone, but because I will more than likely choose this product if I am a winner to the contest ***

Controlled Labs Orange Triad Review
Multi Vitamin component-8/10
--Fairly basic, but gets all my needs covered
Joint and Flex components-10/10
--This is where the product shines, the idea to include joint support in a multi is a great idea. Heavy presses don't seem to bother your joints the next day or during lifts.
--What other multi alows you less bloat and slightly increased appetite/ability to eat more
--What other multi has 100mg r-ala
I prefer this to my old staple of NOW ADAM
It's also relatively cost effective as you get a month and a half worth for 25-30$
I agree with virtually everything; digestion was good to me, multi was good, however for serious injuries there are more hardcore supplements out there like Animal flex or Osteo-sport that I had to revert too because Ive suffered a severe golfers elbow injury. Other than that for the basic lifter its what I'd get if I wasn't going though rehab stage and need hardcore joint attention. I have at least three empty bottles laying around so Ive at least used that much. Ive always thought Controlled labs is a good company.

Haiz + Golden Finish = ???
TASTE: To each their own I guess, but I believe I gave it about a 7 or an 8. It's one of those things you get used to I feel, but it definitely could be improved upon.Originally Posted by Haiz
Mixability: Once again I would disagree based on personal opinion, but he backed up his rating with sound reason.
Texture: I would have lumped this w/ texture, since a clumpy drink (which is what he managed) is hard to say has a nice texture.
Value: Fair Enough
Nutrition: The fact they didn't explain the carbs could come as a side comment, but I don't think it should lower the nutritional score of a product.
Overall: Nice summary given here. I think this was a fair review of the product, although I would have liked a longer conclusion.
