Mkretz colors up his bulk with controlled labs purple wraath and blue gene
First off HUGE Thanks to one of my favorite companies, controlled labs for a chance to lo two great products.
for those of you that don't know, purple wraath is a pre/intraworkout that includes BCAAs and EAAs as well as citrulline malate, beta alanine and betaine, all of which are great for pre and during a workout. I have used purple wraath and the past and have loved it and had great results with it o I am lookin forward to nothin less.
Blue Gene is more f an anabolic product and growth hormone igniter. I have tried other gh boosters in the past including hgh pro, and powefull but have never really used a anablic actiator type product so I am very interested in this product and if it is like basically all other controlled labs products im sure i'll love it.
My training style will be 1 explosive or power movement at the beginning of each workout followed by other exercises in the 8-15 rep rane focusing on slow negatives with explosive contractions and constant tension on the target muscle with lots of squeezing to really exhaust the muscle. MY split will be chest/tris, back/bis, shoulders/traps, arms, legs, with abs and calves every other day. I am taking a summer class so I tend to do my studyin while on the eliptical because i will fall aleep if i sit down to do it lol so my "cardio" is usually pretty high (some day i dont study), but I will try to counteract that with extra calories.
nutrition- I am following the lean gains eating stlye where you try to fast for 16 hours and eat for 8......with the way my scheule is I end up eatin most of my calories in a bout a 3-4 hour window with basically one big meal sometimes. Calories vary from about 3600-4100 on weight training days, depending on cardio. ( i also tend to ride my bike around alot instead of driving when I can) On off days I shoot for 2400-2600 depending on activity, sometimes will even go as high as 3000

I took 5 blue gene before my leg workout yest. just like the directions say, adn took 1.5 scoop of purple wraath pre/intra workout with another .5 scoop after..........I had a shaky workout, my mind was all over, however I feel like I still did a decent job. After leg workouts I am usually EXTREMELY sore and very sore for days......today I am sore but not even close to as sore as normal, this really amazed me becuase recovery i usually my biggest issue. Also my nutrition was not great yet, i had a party and really only ate a bunch of chicken finer pizza, some cottage cheese, and sum chicken sausae, and my recovery was still great! So so far im loving this stack althouh it has only been a day lol. I will try to write down my entire workout as much as possible but right now I do not relaly have the time, sorry, it is a busy week for me this week ..........
today I took 5 blue gene midday since it was an off day.... calories are only at 2200 today becuase i was up late and goin to bed early with no workout........tomorrow will be a very busy day and a workout day so i will probably be somewhere around 4000 calories! lookin forward to a reat chest/tris workout now that im fresh! :-)

Interested how the blue gene made you feel. You can usually feel it's clean, jitter-less energy from the first dose.

I'm in here. Interested to see how it pans out so I know what I'm in for
07-16-2012, 11:58 PM
Took my blue gene about 40 min before my workout today and used about 1.5 scoops of purple wraath pre/intra, with another .5 scoops post.
btw purple wraath tate amazing lol....it is purple lemondade flavor, i had the grape in the past and i am a sucker for grape so i did like that better but they are both delish!
I did chest/tris today - tarted off a little shake due to some issues on my mind....about half way through the workout my mind cleared and was able to focus better on my workout.
started off the workout wiht banded bench as my power movement for sets of 6 and a few sets of 3.
then did a plyo type pres on the smith machine to build eplosiveness, etting the bar o up as high as i could pre it.
then went into hypertrophy work, workin in the 8-15 rep range. I did......
incline db bench, dips, db pres w/twist, machine flys, db flys ss pullovers, rev grip smith pre, guiotinne smith press, db overhead ext, tricep ext machine, dip machine ss cg pushups, rev grip pushdown ss reg pushdown....I also then did about 125 rep of revere crnche on a decline bench relaly focuin on contration, took me about 6 or 7 sets.
I forot a pen to write down my weights that is why I did not put them down. I will try to put them down in the future. Overall reat enery, too early to comment on much else, will let u know hwo recovery is tomorrow!.....tomorrow will be back/bis/calves

tday was an "off" day, but still got some cadio and abs in as well as ridin my bike around and wrked all day..because f this I still kept cals at approx. 3000.
took blue gene befre my ab workout and was extremely focused throughout, Als drank purple wraath during. I did roman chair leg raises, hanging side raises, standin cable crunch, decline crunch, leg raises off a bench, and ab roll outs.....very solid wrkout.....
reovery has been excellent and feel like I recover faster between sets as well......looking forward to more results!
07-19-2012, 01:47 PM
This is going great. I find BG helps alot when doing volume/hypertrophy style training, with the addition of Purple WRAATH you become quite anabolic. I also feel very focused when using BG too, it has a non-stim type of energy that is amazing.
Keep up the great work, your log motivates me!
