First off, thank you Controlled Labs, in particular, RenegadeRows for selecting me to log . I was instructed that in logging this new supplement, I was still afforded the ability to run it with a stack. I'm in the tail end of a / run, where I'm currently in PCT with Formadrol, and and now, the addition of BLUE GROWTH. The last HGH product I ran was months ago, so I'm looking forward to some deep, restful sleep with this product.
I'm a bit of an insomniac, which has real detrimental effects to not only working out, but actual work and activities in general, so any form of improved sleep is something I look forward to.
80% of my workouts are bodybuilding related, however, in recent months, I've grown a liking to Olympic Lifts, such as the Olympic Cleans and Olympic Snatch. It began when I decided my workout partner Zack, an MMA fighter, would benefit more if we incorporated some performance lifts to increase his power (striking, shooting, sprawling, hipping, sweeps...etc). However, Zack recently got an ACL tear and needless to say, his MMA career is currently in the back window. Therefore, real life applications of O-lifts began to diminish. Luck would have it, my new workout partner Dusty, plays football, so again, I was re-inspired to continue my O-lifts.
The bulk of what I log will be bodybuilding workouts, but the vast majority of my video logs will be of my Olympic Lifts. I may throw in the occasional big number lifts so I'm not accused of fudging.
I started filming some video when I was first made aware that I would have this logging opportunity, about three weeks ago and already I've made some significant progression.
I'll be recomping next week, so my goal of course is to increase my O-lifts, which are painstakingly simple sugars fueled, which will be interesting, and to hit 315lbs on the bench for 5 reps for 5 sets. I'm more so in a high intensity routine at the moment, with raising my bench being a high priority.
PREFACE TO VIDEOS * Please read!*
Please, please, please ignore the giant Crossfit sign behind me in these videos. Crossfit has its place, but not for me and the athletes I personally train. It's the facility I work at, but I'm not a Crossfitter, "Not that there's anything wrong with that" to quote Jerry Seinfeld. I just want to make it clear that I'm an iron pushing, protein in the veins, carb counting bodybuilder. (just not carb counting right now).

I know my flaws in technique is my inability to drop lower into the catch, but to be frank, I simply do not possess the required core strength to overhead squat that much weight, which I will be working on.
