Another busy day for me... had to struggle to find time to lift, and I was planning on eating a ton today, but I couldn't find time to cook very much. But that just means tomorrow I will have a lot to eat.
Shoulders, Traps, & Core:
Standing BB Press - @ 125 x 10, 135 x 8, 145 x 6, 155 x 3,1
DB Shrugs - @ 75 x 12,12,12,11
Bent Laterals - @ 25 x 8,8,8
10 minutes of core work - mostly planks and hanging leg raises
Side Laterals - @ 25 (plates) x 10,10,9 superset w/
Clean and Press - @ 105 x 8,5,3
I was pumped after this workout, I looked more vacular than I can ever remember being during my workout too. The harderst thing was finishing with the clean and presses. That 105 lbs felt like 150 when I was done. I struggled to finish with a push press type lift. Needless to say my shoulders were beat...
Post workout I had some milk and whey. I got some more of my eggs fresh of the farm today, so I'll have eggs for like a week, maybe a little bit more. I had stuff to do this morning at 7 and I freakin forgot to set my alarm clock, so I got up at 6:30. Didn't have anytime to make anything, but I managed to grab a tub of peanut butter and a banana before I left the house. Tonight I had to go out to eat at a really good fajita spot. I had some charro beans, chicken, steak meat, and some guacamole. It was sooo good...
Tomorrow I will try to hit back and biceps...

Today was a back day, and I was nervous about deadlifting. I wasn't sure I would be able to pull anything, or not much weight. I figured I would just go as hard as I thought I could...
Back & Bicpes:
Deadlifts - @ 135 x 10, 185 x 10, 225 x 10, 255 x 5, 275 x 5,5,5
Weighted Chin Ups - BW+20 x 8,7,5,5
DB Rows - @ 75 x 5,5,5 superset w/
EZ bar curls - @ 100 x 4,4,4
Wide Grip Pull Ups - BW x 8,6,5,5 supset w/
Hammer Curls - @ 25 x 12,12,12,12 superset w/
DB Pull overs - @ 55 x 10,10,10,10
This session was a lot later in the day than I usually lift but it didn't seem to effect me. I was siked about being able to deadlift pain free, off course I didn't pull that heavy of weight, I was just being cautious but I still put in some work. My biceps were pumped during the whole workout and by lats were on fire when I was repping those pull overs. I hadn't done them in awhile and they felt good.
Post workout I had some milk, whey, and 2 eggs. Then I followed it up with a small steak and some black beans with a lot of greens. I got in a good amount of food today. Two steaks, 2 cans of tuna, one shake w/ peanut butter, about 12 eggs, and a turkey burger patty with various veggies throughout the day. I also had picked up some blackberries yesterday and they are really good. They might become regulars in my fridge! Tomorrow is an off day, I hope, but it might be too hard to resist...

Nice w\o J, glad to here about the pain free deads. You dropped five lbs that is awesome bro. I have been recomping but the last week or two, I been a big cheater. So crazy at my house with preggers wife and complete home remodel going on. I stalled out so far at 215 lbs.
07-10-2009, 11:10 AM
Indeed, nice workout, J!
Also, congrats dedlifter! I was unaware that your wife is with child. That's awesome news, my friend!
Are you doing the remodeling yourself? And what exactly are you having done/doing?

Appreciate it fellas!!!
I know what you mean with the home remodeling, I've been helping my Dad do his house the last few weeks but it has been fun. I pulled his carpet up a few days ago and then we painted some walls and the ceiling some yesterday, but I got the day off today!
Today is a straight rest day, gonna eat like a champ!! I just had a pretty big steak with some fresh collard greens and I'm sure there is much more to come!!!

Got a good start to the weekend today, but I had limited time to lift this morning but it still went down!! I had a nice breakfast with 4 scrambled egss, half of a steak, and an assortment of berries, with some raw honey. Then about 45 min later I took all 5 Green Bulge and went on my way.
Bench - @ 165 x 10,10,10,8,6,6,5,4
DB Extensions - @ 75 x 10,9,8,8
"Fly" Dips - BW x 8,6,5,5
I was on timed rest intervals today, only 30 seconds between every set. I was very winded after but I felt good. I failed hard on the 4th set of bench, and the bar got stuck on my chest, but I just let the plates slide off one side and it was good. That was the only time when I had to use a little bit more than 30 seconds to get back under the bar. The fly dips felt different, I had seen them on tmuscles "best of chest" article and I just felt like trying them out. I think I was just so fatigued and couldn't crank out any more reps though, but they are probably still harder than regular dips.
Post workout I had milk, whey, and two eggs. I had a bowl of chicken and rice with broccoli and carrots ready for me when I left. A little while later I had a nice size steak with an avacado, then I had a large turkey burger. Now I finally get to relax and watch the US in Gold Cup play Haiti. I might go somewhere to watch UFC100 tonight, but I doubt it...

Today was a leg day, it was the first time I did regular back squats since I strained my back. I didn't want to go to heavy, but I think I hit them hard. I ate some eggs, black beans, and berries for breakfast, then 45 minutes later I took the Green Bulge, then I waited 30 minutes to go lift.
Squats - @ 225 x 5,5,5,5,5,5,5,5,5,5
Stiff Leg Deads - @ 135 x 10, 155 x 8,7,7
Standing DB Calf Raises - @ 50 x 20,20,20,20,20
I got my milk, whey, and eggs post workout. Then I ate some turkey with some peas and potatoes from the garden. Now I got some steaks and fish on the grill that I'm gonna get into in a few minutes! My legs are sore now, but I feel good, they were shaking before I finishes up on the last set of squats. I was only taking minimal breaks between sets, all but the last two were way under a minute.
Tomorrow I may go hit shoulder, or I might just take the day off. I think I got a few days left on Green Bulge, but I'm still loving it!!

I was too busy to update yesterday's workout, but it went well. I did shoulders/traps/core, and in the evening I played basketball for about 2 hours. I would say I ate around my maintence amount yesterday. This included 2 steaks, 1 can of chicken breast, 1 can of tuna, about 7-8 eggs, a lot of berries, a lot of broccoli, wheat germ, two protein shakes w/ peanut butter, and I think I am forgetting something... I have two days left off Green Bulge including today. Today is an off day, I have tons of work to do and do not even think I could squeeze in a session.
Standing BB Shoulder Press - @ 125 x 10, 135 x 10,10,8,5,3
Bent laterals - @ 25 x 10,10,9,8 superset w/
BB Shrugs - @ 205 x 8,8,6,5 superset w/
Leaning Side laterals - @ 20 x 8,8,8,6
Core Work for 10 min - planks, hanging leg/knee raises, DB side bends
Arnold Press - @ 50 x 10,7,3 superset w/
High Pulls - @120 x 7,5,4
I was impresses by this workout for sure! The 135 barbell press felt light as could be for the first few sets, I would have thought it would be much more difficult. The shrugs were hard and the leaning side laterals were tough too. I went almost to failue for the arnold press and high pulls, well I went until my shoulders were burning so bad that I just had to drop the weight.
Post workout I got my usual whey,milk, and eggs. Then after I got a large bowl of peas and potatoes and chicken (thats what I forgot to add). I am very impressed by the strenght gains so far from the Green Bulge, the weight just is feeling lighter than it should you know? I only have today and tomorrow left and tomorrow will be a back/biceps workout. After this I will take updated pics and post a final review! Oh and I weighed in this morning at 207, I think that is up a pound from the last weigh in, which is suprsising since last night I played ball for 2 hours. Also last night I was dunking extremely easy, I put a few in vertically, one handed though. I was sad that I didn't get a chance to throw one down during a game

Yep yep, got to keep the food intake up with all of this running around that I have been doing, and it continued today... but I did get to sit in the movies for like 3 hours watching Harry Potter. I just think Emma Watson is hot...
My last day off Green Bulge!!! I finished it up with a back/biceps day. I got to lift after breakfast which was 5 scrambled eggs, black beans, and a sliced tomatoe. Then an hour later I took my last 5 Green Bulge, waited for 30 minutes and went out the door.
Back & Biceps:
Snatch Grip Deadlifts - @ 285 x 5, 295 x 3, 305 x 3, 335 x 1,1,1
Wide Grip Pull Ups - BW + 35 x 3,3,3,3,3,3,2
Incline Hammer Curls - @ 35 x 5,5,5,5
Bent Rows - @ 135 x 10, 155 x 7, 175 x 3
DB Rows - @ 65 x 8,7,3 superset w/
Alt DB Curls - @ 35 x 8,8,6
Today I was keeping my rest between sets as short as possible, and I was beat after it. The hardest thing was pulling those 335 snatch deadlifts, I just kept good form, bit my lip, and pulled. On the last superset I didn't even take a break from the second set. Once I was down I just sat on a bench for a few minutes breathing hard.
Post workout I only had milk and whey, then I ate a steak, broccoli, and peas. Throughout the rest of the day I ate two cans of tuna with carrots, a turkey patty with a tomatoe, a few scoops of natty p butter, and now I think I'm going for a caesin shake. I'll post a final review tomorrow along with some pics!!

Green Bulge - Final Review
Well after a short 30 days my run with the reformulated Green Bulge has finally come to an end.
Strength: definite increase in stength with Green Bulge. I would say that after the first week I started to notice an increase in strenght. The weight was increasing along with the reps in almost all of my lifts (except for the ones that I was affected by my back strain). By the last week I noticed really was aware of how light weight that I used to think was heavy was now not so heavy.
Endurance: When I started this log I was taking around 2 minutes of rest between most of the "big" lifts (bench, squat, deadlift, standing shoulder press). After a week I was still using this amount of time, but it felt uneccessary. So from that point on I was cutting my rest time back to 1:30, to 1:00, and then to under 1:00. During the reduced breaks I did not notice any decrease in my performance, it was the exact opposite- weight and reps were increasing.
Recovery: I did not notice any increased recovery while using Green Bulge from what I am use to. After a hard leg day, my legs would be sore. Maybe for a day, and I might have even felt them the next day too. I am not knocking Green Bulge, I just did not notice any enhanced recovery while on Green Bulge.
Hardness: I also did not notice any increased hardness with my muscles.
Pump: I did notice a "pump" on most days with Green Bulge. This took place on the days when I would take 45 or more minutes to wait to start lifting after I dosed GB. I also did notice a pump on days when I would not wait that long, but it came in more towards the middle of my workout and it did not seem as pronounced as when I would wait.
Recomp Ability: This was my favorite attribute of Green Bulge. Over the 30 day run I managed to lose 5 pounds. I would have thought that my strength would have dropped off, but it increased. You might not be able to tell from the pics, but a few people have told me that I look bigger than I did a month ago.
In closing I would recommend Green Bulge to anyone looking for a killer creatine to run for a month or even longer. It is a super value compaired to many other creatine products out there, and the qualtiy ingredients really put GB over the top!
I would like to say thanks to everyone at Controlled Labs, and to everyone who followed along with me!! If anyone has any questions feel free to ask!
