Intermission in Volcom's Log
I am already in the works, preparing a new opening page of the second portion of this log, but until then, here's a little something to elevate the testosterone.

The Second Coming
IN SEARCH OF STRENGTH
As many of you observed, Blue GENE, in my own experience, produced proof positive effects over muscle endurance and general stamina, as evidenced by my post-cycle muscle endurance assessment and by my progressive ability to increase the volume of my workouts. However, although I assuredly experienced strength increases in my normal routine, this increase in strength was not reflected in my post-cycle muscle strength performance. Muscle endurance and stamina was actually one of Blue GENE premier mission statements and in that aspect, it did deliver.
I am continuing my previous Blue GENE run without a break in stride. I have not stopped taking my daily doses since my final evaluations. Tomorrow, will technically be the very last dose of my original bottle and then I will continue with my own stash. The second portion of this log will entail two significant aspects. Number one, it may or may not be the first, full 60 day run of Blue GENE, and secondly, I will be adding Blue UP, to stack with my continued Blue GENE use.
In re-addressing my intro, we discovered (in my experience), that Blue GENE was very effective in promoting muscle endurance and general stamina. My log workouts reflected a progressive increase in strength, but for whatever reason, took an ambiguous outcome.
By Objective Outcomes:
1. Muscle Endurance and Muscle Stamina - verified.
2. Muscle Strength - ambiguous
Initially, I wanted my Blue GENE/Blue UP combination (hereby described as Blue Balls Stack) to be geared toward a focus on strength, as muscle endurance and general stamina has been established by Blue GENE (and will be an assumed, continuing effect), and perhaps the boost in strength might be assisted by the inclusion of Blue UP.
I did yet another strength evaluation, only this time using Dumbbells, rather then Bench Press. I did this for two reasons, number one, for the sake of convenience and secondly, consistency and therefore, accuracy. When I bench, I need to ask two strangers for assistance, one to film and one to spot, whereas, with dumbbells, I only need to harass one stranger for help filming. Also, bench press performance is often times like dead lifts for me. The inconsistencies of the phenomenon of, “sometimes I’m ON and sometimes I’m OFF” is a gambling factor when testing is involved. For me, whether it’s a physiological or biomechanical issue, dumbbells seem to be more consistent in reflecting what I am capable of performance wise. For whatever reason, as counter intuitive as it may seem, my balance feels more stable and comfortable as compared with the bench press.
I full heartedly do not believe my final post-cycle strength evaluation was a true and accurate reflection of my current upper torso strength, which is why I wanted to make the switch to dumbbells, but, Que Sera Sera, it’s a new chapter.
I performed my Pre-Blue Balls Stack, strength assessment using the 125lbs Dumbbells and this is where I arrived at an “issue.” I expected to perform 5-6 reps, upward of 7 reps, and in my mind, projected a final outcome of 10 solid reps. My dilemma occurred when I nailed 10 reps with the 125lbs Dumbbells during my Pre-BB Stack assessment. This basically eliminates a true, Strength Evaluation, as my range is right in the meat of a hypertrophy zone. Therefore, I came to the conclusion of carrying on my workout routine as generic bodybuilding routine as I had been doing, and see how the BB Stack effects strength, in a hypertrophic focused routine.
I don’t ever build up to 125lbs Db’s in a regular routine. 105lbs to 115lbs Db’s at best, this way you guys know I won’t be specifically training in a manner that would inherently improve my numbers, such as a routine that frequents the 115-125lbs range. Again, I want to assess how the BB Stack would benefit the average joe, not a specific strength athlete. At the end of this run, I may take another bench evaluation for kicks, we'll see.
Half time is over and now its on to the 3rd and 4th quarter.

Just when I thought I could catch up, Sam's gotta go and post another ridiculous feat of strength.
