    The Triumphant Return of Renegade-- with a massive Controlled Labs stack


    (edit for graphics coming later)

    Greetings AM...

    First I wanted to thank the Controlled Labs team; Dracoy & Tank, for giving me a chance to log their amazing products.


    Introduction
    It's been about a year since I've done any serious lifting. Circumstances that were beyond my control have taken me out of the game. Worse still, my diet was very poor. I went from 170lbs of lean muscle to about 135lbs. We will put muscle memory to the test in this log. My dedication and time available for the gym has returned, and thanks to the great people @ Controlled Labs, they had my back and gave me this opportunity to return to the game the right way.




    The Stack of Victory

    In the morning:
    * Blue UP (2 caps)
    * Blue GENE (half dose)
    * Green BULGE (5 caps)
    * Orange TRIad (half serving)

    Preworkout:
    * White FLOOD fruit punch (1 scoop)
    * Blue GENE (half dose)

    During Workout:
    * Purple InTrain (2 scoops)

    Postworkout:
    * Golden GAINS (1 serving)
    * Orange TRIad (half serving)

    At night:

    * Orange Oximega GREENS (1 scoop)




    My stats & the workout plan
    26 years old
    135lbs / 5'8"

    PUSH / PULL / LEGS

    Monday
    PULL - German Volume Training (GVT)
    Tuesday
    Gong fu (stretching, active recovery, tai chi, xingyi, meditation)
    Wednesday
    PUSH - German Volume Training (GVT)
    Thursday
    Gong fu (stretching, active recovery, tai chi, xingyi, meditation)
    Friday
    LEGS - German Volume Training
    Saturday and Sunday
    Rest

    *** DETAILS OF EACH WORKOUT, EXERCISE AND TECHNIQUE WILL BE POSTED THAT DAY.




    Diet
    I will keep the calories clean, as it's summer time and I want to add quality mass without compromising my definition, which has still remained despite my layoff. Lots of chicken. My girlfriend is Chinese, and cooks alot of interesting food. Sushi, snails, squid will be on the list. Not the best food to bulk but high in protein and healthy. Most of my calories will come from white rice, lean chicken, pork, seafood and beef. Lots of good food to come this summer, and I will post pictures and details as I go along.




    Pics



    Goals / Destination

    * To provide feedback on products and synergy
    * To answer questions about products, workout and martial arts
    * To gain at least 15lbs of muscle that I lost
    * To stay relatively lean and ripped
    * To provide progress information, pictures and videos.

    Day 01


    Wednesday, May 12

    Workout - PUSH
    Flat bench - 10 x 10
    Overhead press 10x10
    Dips 3x8
    Pushups - 100



    Review
    First off, let me say that Blue Gene is something you can feel from your first dose. Right off the bat, you feel endurance kick in, more than alot of products. It's this clean energy, this sort of "I want to do it" feeling. This day revolved around that feeling.

    I settled on 100lbs for the bench, even though I felt I could do more, since I've been out of the game, I didn't want to overdo it. That's good, because Thursday was a very painful day. My chest, shoulders, triceps, everything hurt. Even my lats hurt from the pushups. It was very good!

    I can't wait until the Intrain / Golden Gains kick in, because that's when the recovery will decrease. I especially remember being on this stack last year; Golden Gains and Blue GENE. The Blue GENE made me hammer it in the gym, and the GG / InTrain was fast recovery. The best of both worlds, honestly.





    In my opinion, you need 3 things in a bodybuilding stack:
    1. Health (so important)
    2. Energy for workouts
    3. Recovery from workouts


    If you have all 3 of those taken care of, you will reach your goals much faster. I don't like when people say I need creatine, NO, protein, multi, etc. It's accurate to say every supplement falls into one, two or three of the categories above.

    One thing I did notice from today was that the beta alanine flush was very strong. This was from combining the White FLOOD and Purple InTrain so close together. Perhaps I'll save some Purple InTrain for the morning; as the tub has alot of servings. Instead of doing 2 scoops during workout, maybe I'll do 1 scoop during workout and 1 scoop in the morning to speed recovery.

    Day 02


    Thursday, May 13

    Workout - martial arts

    15 minutes chinese yoga
    45 minutes xingyiquan




    Review
    Today was an active recovery and martial arts day. Had a nice practice of Xingyiquan which can be VERY tiring on the legs. It's also a good cardiovascular workout too. I found the Blue GENE + Purple InTrain really helping my martial arts as well. I'm already seeing improved endurance, and focus (which is very important in martial arts as well, moreso than lifting IMO.)


    Here's a little blurp about the style "Xing Yi Quan", which I practice. I hope you find it interesting. :-)





    Xingyiquan is one of the major "internal" Chinese martial arts. The word translates approximately to "Form/Intention Boxing", or "Shape/Will Boxing", and is characterized by aggressive, seemingly linear movements and explosive power.

    A practitioner of xingyiquan uses coordinated movements to generate bursts of power intended to overwhelm the opponent, simultaneously attacking and defending.

    The linear nature of xingyiquan hints at both the military origins and the influence of spear technique alluded to in its mythology. Despite its hard, angular appearance, cultivating "soft" internal strength or qi is essential to achieving power in Xingyiquan.

    The powerful 'shocking' strikes of Xing Yi Quan will damage and disorient the opponent no matter where they connect. These blows are generally not aimed at specific 'vital points,' but rather through the enemy's center of mass; this insures maximum shock and transfer of energy into the opponent. Xing Yi Quan grappling techniques involve rapid, bone jarring takedowns.

    Workout - LEGS
    Squats 7x10



    Review
    My logging got kind of thrown off, as I went away for a few days to celebrate my birthday. Like always I went up north, to the mountains of New England. So nice up there!

    Let me just say, I tried to do the 10 sets of the squats. But if you've ever done sets of 10 rep squats, you know how tiring that is, especially when coming off a layoff. I made it to 7 sets, and was just too fatigued to carry on. I went a bit heavy for me (160lbs), and was determined to push through each set to 10 reps.

    I followed up the workout with a ice cold Golden GAINS shake (DELICIOUS!), and promptly passed T.F. out.

    The next day, I had to take my walker out of the closet LOL, limping was the day's business. Strangely enough I was healed quite quickly by Sunday, probably because I did alot of resting and eating.

    the good thing is that gains come quick after a long lay off-hang in there.

    Workout - Upper Body
    Dips x 100
    Chinups x 100



    Review
    Ok guys, I'm back on the grind. Been sick for the past week; the weather change and all, I caught a cold. I was going to work through it, but decided I wanted to give the log 100%, so when I started feeling sick I stopped the supplements (except for the GREENS and TRIAD) until I got better.

    I came back with a strong upper body workout called the 200-Challenge. It's basically alternating from as many dips as you can in 1 set to doing as many chins as you can, back and forth until you reach 100 reps for each one. It is a grueling workout and one of the most intense I've done. I used to perform this workout 2 summers ago and the results were very pleasing.

    After my 200 workout, I drank some Purple InTrain, took some Blue GENE and mowed my lawn. Boy, that was a great workout too. It was approx. 95 degrees in the sun yesterday, I got some great color and sweat.

    I can't stress how much I'm loving this Golden GAINS. This stuff is so tastey, and the recovery it provides is phenomenal. If anyone has a chance to pick this stuff up, do it!

    Thursday, May 27th

    Workout - Arms & Shoulders
    *superset:
    BB Curls - 5 sets of 10
    Skullcrushers - 5 sets of ten

    *superset:
    BB Shrugs - 5 sets of 15
    Lateral raises - 5 sets of 15



    Review
    I was actually way too sore to do any kind of substantial compound movements, so I stuck with some isolations to get a pump and endorphin rush.

    The workout went well, it's amazing how much music can add to your energy. I was feeling kind of sluggish and tired going into the gym, yet as soon as the music came on I found my second wind.

    I kept the weight light, but the pump was something awesome. I did alot of flexing during this workout, LOL. I think I'm going to take my whole Blue GENE dose in the morning, as the combination of White FLOOD + Blue GENE is keeping me awake later than I want to be. Before my layoff that would not be a problem, however months of no supplements has left my tolerance brand new... which is a very good thing if you ask me.

    Big T- you were right about the gains coming quickly. I've been back in the game for about 2 weeks, and even though I was sick a few days, my arms are already visibly bigger than when I began. It's all coming together quickly.

    muscle memory is a wonderful thing. look at it like this, most professional sports figures take a break from serious training for at least part of the off season.

    Workout - Upper Body
    Dips x 100
    Chinups x 100



    Review
    Hope everyone had a nice Memorial Day weekend, I know I did!

    Had to bang out another one of these "200" workouts. They're just so fun and challenging, and the DOMs felt the next day are quite enjoyable lol. If you haven't tried this workout, I suggest you do! I manage to get about 50 reps in sets of 10, then the last 50 the numbers start dropping, maybe sets of 5 or 6. It's a great shocker to get back on track fast.

    I'm going to be including some mini reviews from here on out, on some of the products. I may highlight one or two everyday. Look forward to my first review of Purple InTrain, will be posted very soon.

    Started to see big results in the mirror. Only about 2.5 weeks in, and according to the scale I'm up 3lbs steadily. That is huge, the lifestyle change for me was real big, I'm eating alot again, lifting hard and taking my supplements. I'm going to be back on track in no time!!!
