My First Log: Blue Gene/Blue Up
This is going to be my first official log ever. Iíve been a lurker on AM for a long time and have found a lot of inspiration and information by following other peopleís logs. I will be logging Blue Gene, Blue Up with Purple Wraath and White Flood for 2 months! Iíve only previously used white flood and purple wraath and LOVED them both. Iím very excited about trying Blue Gene and Blue Up. I know there are a lot of other Blue Gene/Blue Up logs on here already and they were all very nicely done and informative. This log is more selfish because I think that logging online will be a great motivator to help me stick to it. I usually get going pretty well and stray off eventually. Iíd like to have a strict diet and exercise regiment for a few months. So this log will not only have information on the supplements and their effects but also on the mental aspect of running a log. Hopefully this will be a big step in the right direction for me personally and maybe if I can show how productive a log is, after months of lurking, then other lurkers will decide to start their own logs.
Hereís a brief summary of the diet and workouts
Diet: 5-6 meals a day (high protein always, low Ėmoderate carbs) Calories: Play by ear
Supplements first month: Blue Gene, PW, WF, Fish Oil, Multi-V and ON protein pwdr
Beverages: Coffee(always), 1-1.5 gallons of water every day!, Orange Juice and thatís it!
Workouts: 5 days a week lifting hitting different muscles, Cardio 5-6 days a week. Mostly HIIT Cardio either on the treadmill or elliptical. I might sprinkle fasted cardio throughout.
Stats: 5í9 158 right now BF% unknown at the moment
My goal is to target a few areas such as my stomach and around my love handles. Iíd like to tone those areas up and lose the fat for summer. Iíd also like to slightly increase strength but for right now my main concern is to not lose any strength since Iím not bulking.
The only other thing I can add right now is that a placebo affect happening will not be an issue with me. Iím so jaded by supplements that I have the attitude that their guilty until proven innocent. Everything Iíve used from Controlled Labs in the past has been great and they are one of the few companies I trust. I promise Iíll give you a very honest assessment about the products.
Alright wish me luck and I welcome all criticisms, ideas, information and support!

This is what I had for supps yesterday. Blue Up and White Flood should be arriving today hopefully. Did 20 Minutes fasted HIIT Cardio on the treadmill in the morning with 2 scoops of Purple Wraath. Afterwards I was sweating like a madman. PW is by far my favorite supplement to date. Great stuff and endurance is through the roof. I've been using it for the last month taking 1-2 scoops before every workout.
After work I hit the gym again to work on the arms. To my surprise the gym was completely empty which IMO is awesome. I think it has to do with the fear of getting swine flu. I know that sounds crazy but people around Texas are really starting to flip out about it. Alright hereís the skinny. Took 5 Blue Genes and scoop of PW before.
Hammer Curls 3 sets of 10, EZ Bar Curls 3 sets of 10, Closed Grip EZ Bar Curls, Concentration Curls 4 sets of 10
Pretty good work out especially considering it was after work. Iím usually most tired after work which is why I try to lift during my lunch break. I only got 5 meals in today because work was busy. I usually try to get one in between lunch and when I get off work.
Morning: 2 scrambled eggs with cheese and whole grain toast
Mid morning: Ĺ cup of oats with 1 tsp of natural peanut butter and protein powder
Lunch: chicken breast salad with a piece of whole grain bread
After workout: Protein Shake with milk/bananas
Before Bed: 1 cup of cottage cheese FTW!

Today is an off day. I got my white flood in today so everything is in place now. I can't wait to throw white flood into the mix. I've already had a ton of energy and focus with PW and now with Blue up. It's going to be great. So far my diet has been clean and fairly consistent. I've been getting 5-6 meals a day spaced out at about 3 hour intervals. The meal spacing and control is especially hard to do over the weekend when there are countless temptations from junk food to alcohol! So far the log is looking to be a very usefull tool in regards to motivation!

Now it is complete. This Optimum Nutrition Chocolate Mint is the best tasting protein powder I've ever had by the way!

My first workout with all of the above supps was today at lunch and I was very impressed. I forgot how much I missed white flood and how good it taste when mixing it with PW! It kind of got me missing Green M a little too! Anyways today I worked arms bc the bench press was taken. I had a good but short arm workout because I got a pump really early today. My arms were as stiff as a board really quick into the workout. Oh weel it still felt great. I have been taking blue gene about 45 minutes before my workout and blue up about 30 minutes before my workout. Today I forgot to bring them to work to take them early before I left for lunch so I took them about 10 minutes before my workout. After my lifting I did some HIIT on the treadmill and it was allsome! I felt great and endurance and focus were spectacular.
As far as mental toughness goes the real test will be the upcoming weekend. I'm going to hang out with family and friends. We'll probably be eating some really good italian food so I'll have to be on my best behavior. So far the log has inspired me to stick to the regiment. I've been tempted with cheating a few times but didn't want to have to log it. I can see why you guys on here have been so successful with your diets. Of course it's early and the real judgement will be in the end.

Sweet to hear bro. I bet it will too, the other guys who logged the blue stack felt amazing...!

Alright today was day 6 and I can definitely feel the blue stack kicking in. This morning I woke up and did 30 minutes cardio with 1 1/2 scoops of PW/WF. That went really well and I was dragging this morning at work afterwards. When lunch time rolled around I didn't have any energy to go to the gym or so I thought. Around 10:30 I took two blue up and at 11:20 I took 5 blue gene. I drank 2 scoops of White Flood and arrived at the gym at 12:00 for chest day and it went great! What was so noticeably different about it was the extra reps I could get in today that I wouldn't have had the energy to do before. There was a little extra in the tank today for sure. After Chest I ran a mile on the tread mill with an incline for kicks. I proceded to drink my PWO shake and now I'm sitting at work. I still feel great.
So far no side effects to report except the extra boost in the gym. The diet is still on track. I'm keeping calories around 1400-1800 at most. I'm cycling up and down with carbs and carbs always come from whole grains and mainly oats. Hopefully strength can continue to increase on such few calories. If strength continues to increase I'm definitely going to try and do a clean bulk with this blue stack when winter rolls around. Deuces

Well yesterday I got up and did the usual morning cardio with 1.5 scoops of WF/PW. I was planning on that being it and doing back and legs today but I had too much energy when I got off work. I also had a tad bit of aggression throughout the day which was kinda nice actually. It was really nice when I got into the gym after work because I had a very intense and focused workout. I alternated between back exercises(pulldowns, Barbell rows, shoulder press) and leg exercises(squats, leg extensions, etc...). It was great. I did have a problem sleeping last night though. The past two nights I haven't went to sleep as easily as I would have liked to. I think I might take a few days off of the blue up, at least over this weekend. We'll see if that does the trick or not. Besides the sleep I'm loving this stack so far.

I appreciate it bro! Just throw me a few of those ladies that are in your log and that should do!

I'm going out of town this weekend to visit family and friends so Saturday and Sunday will be off days. You guys try to stay out of trouble while I'm gone.

Alright so the diet took a turn into really dangerously high carb territory this weekend!(went to favorite italian restaurant) But I'm back on track Monday and I'm kind of messing with the doses now. I posted that I had a fantastic workout Friday! That morning I actually took 5 blue gene and 1 blue up in the morning after my cardio workout. I went to work and on my lunch break 4 hours later I took a blue up and drank some WF. Not only did I have a ton of energy at work but my workout was great on my lunch break. Yesterday (monday) I took the blue stack 30 minutes before my workout on my lunch break and had a so/so workout but nothing like Friday. So today (tuesday) I woke up and did 35 minutes of cardio with 1 scoop of PW and 2 scoops of WF. Afterwards I drank a protein shake and took 5 blue gene and 1 blue up. I'm at work and feel great so far! In about 2 hours I'll hit the gym and I'll report back tomorrow how it goes. All I'm going to take preworkout today is 2 WF and 1 blue up since it worked so well the last time.
