Thank you to RenegadeRows and everyone else at Controlled Labs for allowing me to run their new product,.
To those of you that were keeping up with my PAL log on Anabolic Edge, you will know that this is Part 2 of my log. The main purpose is to compare the two products as far as effects/results and to discuss product stacking potential.

I'll list what I HAVE been doing during my training sessions, but some of the lifts may change, and I will let you know what those will be.
My training schedule is somewhat elaborate. I have my entire body split up into two workouts, branching from those two splits I have a total of four workouts; a low-rep day (3-6reps), and a high-rep day (10-15reps) for each muscle group. I label my workouts as A1, B1, A2, and B2. Specifics:

I lift three days a week, which means that each muscle group gets worked twice a week every other weeks. Example:
My cardio days are Tue/Thur, and I do one hour of cardio at moderate intensity. I usually do 30min/20/10 on Stairmill/Treadmill/Spin Bike. The treadmill is done at 15% incline and 3.3mph.
I am currently on a break from lifting for a couple reasons. First of all, it's been ten weeks of hard training since my last week off, and I feel as though I need the recovery time. Secondly, I'd like to clear out anything that is still active in my body from the Anabolic Edge so that I can give Blue Gene a fair review.
I will be commencing this log on Thursday, September 25th. I wanted to give everyone a heads up on the start of it so all my brosefs could sub, and to give any new chappies to get involved and me in my training.
Here's some of my pics starting from the beginning of the AE log up until this morning...
