    Nothing worse than being over-stimmed for a workout. Messes you up bigtime.

    Did you set your base really low? Seems like you've broken 5 personal records every workout, which seems a little screwy? Did you start back up after a break just recently? Your strength gains are impressive!

    Yea base was low, because I started a new routine, after a week off, and a bunch of these exercises were new (ie, didn't have the proper amount of weight on them first week). I'll adjust for it in the final review (by using week 2 numbers, probably..)

    Hey, good stuff. Sorry if my previous post sounded a little harsh. That was not my intention at all. Your gains have been remarkable.

    So how much strength do you think this stack has given you? What's your weight been like? Up? Down?

    We'll see in the final review in a few days. I know I've been increasing weight both on the scale and in what I put up, but final pictures will be the judge of how much I really gained.

    Very detailed review! So you didn't feel a change in pump at all? That's the thing I'm noticing the most. That and endurance is dominating. Good log!

    No change in pump at all. But endurance was fantastic. Like I said, for the first 3 weeks I was adding a set to each exercise while going up in weights/reps, and never actually got more sore/tired than the first week.

    First off, I want to thank Controlled Labs for giving me a chance to log their product. It was a fantastic ride over the past 30 days, and I felt very accountable doing my workouts because I knew I was given the opportunity to conduct a log of a great product.

    So I figure I give this final review a few sub-sections in which I'll mention the changes experienced. Starting off with:

    Weight/Body Composition:

    Before -----------------------------> After
    186lb @ 14% BF (bloated) -----> 185lb @ 12% BF (still bloated.. but less so)


    Gym Numbers:

    Week 1 -----------------------------> Week 4
    Dead:
    6x225 / 6x225 / 8x225 -----> 6x265 / 6x265 / 5x265

    Pullup:
    7xBW / 6xBW / 6xBW -----> 6xBW+30 / 6xBW+30 / 6xBW+30

    Pendlay Row:
    10x135 / 7x135 / 6x135 -----> 6x175 / 6x175 / 6x175

    BB Shrugs:
    10x225 / 10x225 / 10x225 -----> 6x300 / 6x300 / 6x300

    DB Shrugs:
    10x80 / 10x80 / 10x80 -----> 10x80 / 10x80 / 10x80 *maxed the DB's that we have in the gym

    Wide Grip 15' Inc Bench:
    8x185 / 7x185 / 6x185 -----> 5x205 / 5x205 / 4x205

    Inc DB BP:
    8x60/ 9x60 / 8x60 -----> 5x80 / 5x80 / 4x80

    Dips:
    6xBW / 6xBW / 7xBW -----> 6xBW / 7xBW / 7xBW / 6xBW / 7xBW

    DB Military Press:
    8x50 / 8x50 / 6x50 -----> 4x60 / 4x60 / 4x60

    Smith Squat:
    10x225 / 8x225 / 4x225 -----> 6x255 / 6x255 / 4x265

    Stiff Leg Deads:
    9x265 / 7x265 / 7x265 -----> 6x285 / 6x285 / 6x285

    Wide Grip 15' Inc Bench:
    8x185 / 7x185 / 6x185 -----> 5x205 / 5x205 / 4x205

    Skull Crushers:
    6x70 / 7x70 / 6x70 -----> 6x80 / 6x80 / 6x80

    Notes and Observations

    Libido- Libido started increasing the second week, hit its peak on week 3, and then went down to base levels. I'm young though, so I wasn't expecting too much of a change.

    Strength- Strength has been going way up. Check out the numbers posted above. Each of the first 3 weeks I was adding a set to each exercise, and managed to increase either reps or the weight lifted as well! Some of the increase are rather dramatic, though.. I'll explain why: I started the first week of this stack after a long cut, and a week off in which I got sick. So the base numbers were extremely low because I was just getting back to the gym. As I was bulking, weights kept going up, but the base numbers were very low. Regardless, this stack definitely gave me some great strength increases!

    Body Composition- Overall, muscles were full -- but I suffered from bloat all throughout. As you guys can see in the (crappy) pictures below, I don't look anywhere near 8% BF.. which I was at 13 days before starting this stack. However, I overate for the 13 days and loaded up on carbs after doing a low-carb cut, so got completely bloated. I was hoping that I'd lean out more than I did. Anyway, it looks like I'm going to be cutting for another 4-8 weeks to get rid of the bloat and get back down to single digit BF. Then, I can finally go on a long bulk

    Vascularity- Vascularity was about the same throughout. Some days it was higher than others, but overall no change.

    Pump- No change over the length of this stack.

    Mood- Mood was great on this stack all throughout. Weather's finally turned around, but I definitely felt myself to be in a better mood on more days than usual while on this stack. Being off it for a few days now, I miss it

    Recovery- Recovery was great on the stack.

    Side-effects (acne, aggression)- Not much, really. I got a bit of acne on week 3, but it was only for a few days. No changes in aggression for me.

    Overall: I'd recommend this stack to anybody who's maybe lost a bit of motivation and is looking to get back into things. You'll experience better recovery, a better mood, and increase in energy. These will translate into better gym time.. and result in increases in your gym numbers. The effects really kicked in around the 3rd week, so it'd be preferable to run this stack for 8 weeks as opposed to only 4. One of the biggest indicators that a product does what it promises to do is if the logger ends up buying more of the product after completing the log.. and that's exactly what I plan on doing later on this year! I'll do it for 8 weeks next time, though.

    Picture!

    Before on left, after on right. About a 3lb muscle gain.. don't except much to be visible. Apologies for the horrible camera, I could only use a webcam, and had to take a video of myself, and then take screenshots for each picture -_-


    I'm very impressed with your details and also your gains. Great log and review.

    Thanks brother! I hope there's nothing I forgot to mention -- remind me if there is Also, I figure for my next log I should do an exercise (DB BP, for example) to failure at the onset of the log, and then try again with the same weight at the end of the log.. to see how many reps I can add on.

    Also, thanks for taking a chance on a newbie logger!
