Maurice02's Sponsored Controlled Labs Blue Stack (Blue GENE/Blue UP)
So, my Controlled Labs Blue Gene/Blue Up stack has arrived.
Lets start with the basics.
Real name is Joe, 28, about 5'10 and currently weighing around 212. I will be taking my weight daily and recording through the log.
As for my bodyfat, I have no friggin clue LoL. There will be before and after pics.
I had worked out heavily from 20 - 23 years old. I had a hiatus from 23 - 25 and went up to 255 pounds....BAD. Started up hard for the past 3 years and plan on going hard from here on forth. I have managed to get my strenght up by previously running two cycles (hdrol and havoc).
Currently I am doing a CKD. My original intentions were to get down from the 232 I was to about 200. Looking in the mirror though, I think I am going to have to shoot closer to 190ish to have the physique I am looking for.
Cardio is usually on the ARC machine after each workout.....ranging from 20 - 30 min and according to the machine I usually squeeze out between 350 and 550 calories.
Workout will be 4 - 5x a week broken out as chest, back/deads, arms, shoulders/traps and legs will be either on shoulders or legs day, though I am leaning towards shoulders more.
For this log, my daily supplements will be as follows:
Blue UP - 2 in the AM
Blue GENE - 5 prior to workout or on non-workout days taken in the afternoon
Fish oil - 6 grams per day
ATW protein shakes (typically 3 on workout days and 2 on non workout days)
I have been taking Jacked Preworkout but I think I am going to go back to one of my favs, which is the Xyience NoxCG3.....since it is non stim.
I will be holding off my stim usage while on this cycle to get an accurate feel for both Blue Gene and Blue Up and relying on practically just these two to keep my strength/motivation up while attempting to cut down.
I will be monitoring my libido, aggresiveness, energy, sense of well being, strength, mass gains, vascularity, etc...
I have noticed that I am starting to struggle with my higher end flat bench DB presses and I think that will give me an accurate assessment of how this stack works. After my cycle of Havoc I was able to put up 110x6.....then down to 105's, and now 100x8 and the last two are a struggle.
I am looking forward to see how Blue UP/Blue GENE works for those of us on a CKD cut since summer is coming up. My hopes are that I can maintain my strength and muscle while losing excess fat.
I will be more than likely starting my log Sunday or Monday. It depends what day I start my workout routine this coming week.

starter pics. Weight is about 212. Not sure what I should try to cut for? 190ish?????? I dropped from 232 and feel like I lost some size as well though.
BF% - NO CLUE LOL
Not great at posing but here we go.

Alrighty, final review time. Better late than never LoL.
I dropped from 212 to 198 on this and am currently back hovering at 205.
The only negatives experienced with this were that I was VERY sensitive to the yohimb in blue up in the beginning. I advise that if you use it you need to wean yourself on it if you have not used the yohimb before.
Now for the good stuff.....
During this I aimed to cut sticking with a keto diet. In the past, I have always lost strenght during a keto diet. This was not the case while ON the blue combo. I could feel Blue Gene kick in after the first set or so at the gym. It was a nice pump feeling. Muscle hardness. It was also a non stimmed feeling which was nice to have. I wasn't getting all pumped up and jittery....but more along the lilnes of pumped and feeling mentally and physically good. I was able to focus very well.
The biggest thing I took from this cycle and still have to this day is the following:
- previously I used to take about 1 hour to bang out six or so back exercises. I brought it down to 40 minutes while on the blue combo and to this day still get in and out a lot quicker. The same goes for chest. I would usually wait 2 or 3 minutes between sets. Now I can do the same amount of weight and practically wait a minute or so between sets.
- Overall, I would advise this to increase recovery time. I was honestly shocked at the end when I would look at the clock and realize I was only in there for about 35 - 45 min each day. and still lost weight!
I would give this an 8/10. Only reason is that I got a bit stimmed in the beginning, but next time I would use the non stim version.
I would highly recommend bridging this into a PCT. While your test levels are getting back to normal, I personally think this would allow (obviously a test boooster though) you to keep your stamina and strength.
Thank you again for the opportunity.

Morning weight 210.6
Day 1 was yesterday.
I woke up, popped 2 Blue UP, got my gym clothes on, took 5 Blue Gene, chugged my Xyience, made my Xtend and headed to the gym.
I felt really stimmed out yesterday unfortunately. I had to cut my workout short due to sweating, rapid heartbeat, and just not feeling right.
I can't give much of a review thus based on yesterday. It was chest day and I only did flat dumbell and flat bench and left.
DAY 2 is today.
Morning weight 210.8
Got up at 6:30, took my Blue UP and off to work. I have concluded that the Blue UP is making me a bit jittery/anxious. I spoke to Renegade about it. It is most likely the Yohimbe. It is nice to feel "woken up" after taking it though, but I am going to start waiting till I get to work and taking it with food to ease the effects of it.
I manually checked my resting pulse and it looks to be about 68. I was running up and down the stairs and pulse elevated pretty quickly though. I definitely can't take this before the gym but dosing in the AM should hopefully be good since I workout PM.
Tonight is back and deads.......will report back later!

Let me know how taking Blue Up in morning affects the rest of your day. I'm considering taking both up/gene pre w/o around 3pm. I have yet to decide. I would like to get the full energy kick for my w/o.

Tonights workout was not as bad as yesterday, but I still had some times of a very hard heartbeat going on. IT was mainly when I did heavier weight.
Got home, took a 1 1/2 hour nap.....for some reason exhausted today....woke up, popped my blue gene and off to the gym. They go down very smooth for five tabs....can take them all at once and they slide on in lol.
I did my wide grip pull downs, bent over rows, chin ups, close grip pull down, and then went to do deads. I only did two sets of deads cause the chest pounding issue was bothering me.
Honestly I didn't push as hard as I could tonight, just out of concern.....I want to acclimate to the blue gene.
On a side note, I was kinda of astonished how quick i went through my workout. I felt my recovery was up for sure. I am also feeling quite good now after workout....not worn out feeling.
I did 20 min of cardio and felt quite fine on it. HR ranged from 129 - 154 and stayed mostly at 146 the whole time.
Since I am going through adjustment period, I am going to go low carb for a bit, not no carb and then kick my diet up again full next week. I just ordered 18 hot wings LoL.
Tomorrow morning I am going to take the two blue up with food and see how it serves me. If I continue to have the rapid beats, I will drop to one.

Morning weight 212.4 on a very full stomach from the evening before.
Slept wonderfully and woke up feeling pretty damn good. Usually my muscles haven't been as sore after workouts but I felt like I worked out the night before this morning. Maybe it was because I had an upped recovery and moved so much quicker between sets.
I opted to take one blue up today around 9:30 am with 3 eggs in a egg salad. I did feel my heartbeat pick up a 1/2 hour later but it has calmed down pretty quickly. I feel more awake. I still have a slight "tightness" in the left side of my chest. I am not sure if it is a muscle or what though.....might be indigestion...and gonna take some TUM TUM TUM TUM TUMS when I get home and see if that clears it up a bit.
Tonight is usually an off night. I will see if I go or not. If i do, I will probably do legs and a short chest workout (flat and incline bench and cable crossovers)
And I am getting wood a bit more .... just for no reason it seems....SHWEET lol

I may try and lift tonight.....feeling kinda motivated now!
BTW....tried to rep you flaw but i gotta spread it around some more....gotta be a slut for a bit lol.

How long did the stim feeling of Blue Up seem to last for you? I took 2 at 4am and I think I still have a bit of a buzz..... that or I could be excited to lift in an hour lol.
03-24-2009, 03:03 PM
On Sunday I took em around 11ish in the morning on an empty stomach and still felt awake at 11 at night!

Good to hear the 1 cap is working out better for you. You'll get used to the stims in it after a few days and you shouldn't have too much of an issue anymore.
What other stims have you taken in the past, just curious?
And the random wood is definitely a great thing haha

Evening workout Day 3
Back to business. One cap of Blue Gene definitely was a good choice. Still had a couple episodes of a fast beat, but nothing bad really.
Pump was ridiculous today. It got so bad that my triceps were actually hurting doing flys. I had some good motivation going on. And I moved AGAIN, very fast through my workout.
I had gone to do a minimal chest workout and planned on doing legs but just did chest and cardio.
Flat dumbell press - 60 x 10, 75 x 10, 90 x 10 (I was doing 105 a month ago but since the weight loss, it has gotten rather hard lol).
Flat bench press - 45 x 20, 135 x 10, 225 x 10
Incline bench press - 135 x 10, 185 x 10, 225 x 8, 245 x 3 (no spotter)
Also did the fly machine and maxed at 200 x 10, did crossover flys, and forgive me....I forgot the name of the excercise......but you use the cable machine and kinda pull each arm up along your sides then inwards to the center of your chest and straight up.
Overall great workout. Felt good.....afterwards felt good to.
03-25-2009, 09:13 AM
Morning weight 210.4
Tentatively doing legs tonight. Woke up kinda sore today but tells me I had a good workout. I think the shortening of rest between sets is actually a good thing....I know I worked out lol.
03-25-2009, 09:22 AM
The mad pumps your experiencing I'm attributing to Blue GENE's 'feeling it quick' effect ... After day 1 I felt the Blue GENE work in the gym, and I've tested this with others... it kicks in real fast. No placebo!

03-25-2009, 11:04 AM
I Cant waiiiiiiiiit! I started taking EC to maybe help with my coughing shxt up from being sick and to drop a few more pounds before I start... want to be at my target weight before I start... i think i can lose 4-5 in 2 weeks.. well 1.5 weeks now
03-26-2009, 08:59 AM
Morning weight 209.8......woo hoo....below 210 lol. Now lets keep it that way.
Took off last night. Was exhausted so far from the work week. Tonight is arms (triceps/biceps)
03-26-2009, 09:35 AM
03-26-2009, 09:37 AM
actual day 1 starting weight was 210.6 and i was still carbing up a bit.......so i went up to 212ish with all that food and so far guess I dropped about a pound. No complaints on a pound. I wanna shoot for 195 to 200 and see how i stand ya know.
03-26-2009, 09:44 AM
Hell yeah Joe! A lb is a lb right?! I think right now id like to be at about 190 as well... but eventually I would like to keep whatever BF i have at 190 and get up to about 205ish. So right now I need to cut another 20 lbs of fat and put on 15 lbs of muscle! ha its gonna take awhile!
Hows the 1 dose treatin ya?
Renegade, I have a question about the dosing for you, for Maurice... just an idea Alot of people dose yohimbine more than once a day... could he maybe now go to 1 pill in the morning and 1 in the afternoon sort of how people dose leviathan reloaded and then once he goes with that for a few days then switch to 2 pills in the morning?
