    I like this log's amount of detail and honesty. This is something I pride myself on is honesty in a log. He didn't fudge any numbers pre or post log. He posted pictures, and we saw exactly what he did every day. He even posted his meal plans, wow.

    I haven't tried blue gene, but it does peak my interest. I am a visual and detail person and he easily catered to my wants without even trying. If I were running a log, the Deucester would definitely be one of my loggers. I also liked that he kept running his usual staples so that he could understand that difference of a new variable.
    I appreciate that you would choose my thread to review....good review also, Thank you!

    It is fairly mundane, with standard features that communicate somewhat helpful but umimpressive facts. That is not to say this a bad review, merely "run-of-the-mill."

    This particular review was chosen in part for it's title (the term "GFH" amuses me every time I encounter it) and in part for the products the user OBeast was reviewing. Purple Wraath has provided much benefit, energy and improved recovery for me in the past, and White Flood is increasingly becoming of interest to me with it's tablet-form release and the logs associated therewith.

    OBeast utilizes the 1-10 number scale to evaluate a number of factors pertaining to WF and PW. On the whole, these numbers are what you would typically expect; scores ranging from 8-10 form a large majority. While I am sure that OBeast did find his products to be great in most respects, the 1-10 scale does little to set his CL supplements of choice apart from the myriad of other products similarly rated elsewhere on AM.

    That being said, his scores for both "eye candy/first impression" and "taste" were 5/10 and 2/10, respectively.

    Therefore, though everything else tops the charts by his standards, he is still objective enough to report a shortcoming.

    In addition to his numeric ratings, OBeast comments on each of his "factors", beginning with his low scoring "eye candy/first impression":

    Unfortuneately, he only comments upon his first contact with the White Flood, forgetting the Purple Wraath. However, his feelings are made perfectly clear. I cannot comment on White Flood's smell. I will say the packaging is nice, but I must admit that if a supplement works well enough to use consistently, I'd take it if it smelled awful and came in a plastic bag.


    Every amino acid product I have ever used has retained some amount of sedimentation. I do agree with him, though, in that there is very little of it when PW is dissolved and mixed.


    Now, OBeast used an outdated release of PW and WF, meaning that the flavors of both have since been updated, upgraded and improved. Still, he gives his honest opinion and even "stuck with it", experimenting with water volume until he found a concentration he enjoyed:



    Typical comment for a pre-workout mix, something I myself have been guilty of, I am sure. His energy is up and he's got Beta-Alanine Paresthesia. A little vague and general, but most loggers have been in the same position.


    "Jittery" energy cannot be automatically assumed to be due to caffeine, as White Flood contains plenty of other ergogenic ingredients that could just as likely contribute to such a feeling in one unaccustomed to those substances. His heightened focus is likewise cumulatively due to these same ingredients.


    I really don't like evaluating a supp based upon the "pump" it provides, as a "pump" is only one of a number of factors that indicate and influence hypertrophy. I have gained plenty of muscle and size in the past without incurring or attempting to achieve a "pump". With that understood, I can easily see how White Flood could rate so highly on his scale; it does contain several nitric oxide enhancing ingredients as well as vasodilators, resulting in a potent combination for eliciting a "pump"


    No final thoughts on the products other than "they work." Are they exceptional? Will you be using them again? Did you find them overpriced or a steal in value? Additionally, the majority of his feedback could pertain entirely to WF, leaving poor PW out in the cold. Where is the mention of decreased recovery time, increased stamina, abnormal progress or something of the like? Just using PW alone, I felt much better both during and after my workout (more endurance, less drained), but PW's effects are sadly left mainly to the imagination.

    OBeast evaluated these CL products fairly as he saw it and honestly as well. His detail is somewhat lacking and methods are a little mediocre, but noone is asking for perfection. I would have appreciated further updates (he does mention that WF upsets his stomach under certain circumstances) perhaps with progress in strength or weight-gain or size delineated. In the absence of these, we can conclude that he had an enjoyable workout and that he benefitted from and liked his CL stack. I too heartily say that my experiences with CL and their products have all been enjoyable and effective.

    Thank RR for running this contest and my apologies if this review is a little lengthy.
    Very strong entry

    I like how this user was honest and objective in everything he rated.I'm going to copy, paste, and put into quotation what the reviewer has to say and right below compare my experience.

    Mix ability

    "When I first mixed it up, there was still quite a bit of stuff left floating in my shaker... but the majority of what was left dissolved within 2-3 min."

    Mix ability was not an issue for myself. Mixed well for myself.

    Taste

    "I thought that the taste was a little funky, I didn't enjoy it but it wasn't like I couldn't drink it. I'm sure the new taste in the improved formula is much better."

    I didn't think it was funky; however, I did think it was a bit chalky like and might have choked me a bit. I think this could use improvement.

    Pump

    This gave me an overall good pump, wasn't extreme but it was more than what i normally get in the gym. It was more than I expected because I wasn't expecting anything as far as a pump goes.

    I really didn't notice. maybe a bit more of a pump due to the ingredients like cillatine mall ate, l-nova, I know the literature on these. Maybe an increased pump, nothing huge or anything recognized.

    Overall

    "Good Supp. Nuff Said. I think everyone knows this already. Flavor was the only issue but I'm sure it has been fixed in the updated version."

    I believe I tried the updated version? Overall it is good stuff I mean anyone who knows there stuff knows beta alanine and bcaa's work along with cillirtine malate for increase no production , ginger for soothing the stomach.Overall works very well and does what it says it does.

    Nice entry!!!

    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!


    http://anabolicminds.com/forum/contr...ie-s-mini.html
    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.

    "GlycerGROW Review!


    Taste: 8/10
    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!

    Mixibility: 3/10
    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.

    Effectiveness: 7/10
    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

    Latspead says

    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.

    Immune/Digestion component-10/10
    --What other multi alows you less bloat and slightly increased appetite/ability to eat more
    --What other multi has 100mg r-ala

    OVERALL--9/10

    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 = ???
    Quote Originally Posted by Haiz

    TASTE: 10/10- I do not, and will never understand how someone could complain about the taste of Golden Finish. In anywhere from 20-40 ounces of water, this is one of the most refreshing and best tasting proteins there is. I usually mix it with 20 ounces, shake it, drink 10, then add 20 or so more. The best way I can describe the flavor is...FRUITY PEPPLES. Seriously, that good.

    TEXTURE: 10/10-If you mix it up properly, the texture is perfect. Not too thick, not too smooth. Great.

    Mixability:7/10- In a regular shaker, there is no way I could get this to mix up all the way, and I was always left with clumps throughout. With a blender bottle it took some time, but I could get most of it out.

    Value:8/10-Its a bit pricey, but the ingredients and taste make it worth it. I generally make my own, but if I have extra cash I'll get a PWO blend like GFH.


    NUTRITION: 7.5/10- Nice blend of ingredients. I like how they kept the carbs down, but it loses points for not explaining what the carbs are.


    OVERALL:9/10- Considering results in recovery/strength, I have to give this stuff a great score. The only negatives in my mind are price/the fact that I have no idea what the carbs are. However, the stuff plain works, and I will be using it again for sure. Pics to come.
    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.

    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.
