First off I want to give a huge thanks, to Controlled Labs for letting me log these two products. They continue to be an outstanding company that excels in developing cutting edge products and great customer service, and have become one of the main companies I continue to purchase supplements from.
Now onto the log! The log will be off one of Controlled labs better known products, Purple WRAATH there EAA/BCAA product. And one of there lesser known products BLUE GENE, which in particular I'm interested in as its a type of product I've never really tried before. Both products I'm sure will blow my mind as has any product I have tried from Controlled Labs and that list isn't small consisting off White Flood, Green Magnitude, Orange Oximega, Orange Triad, Gold Feast, and samples of Reduction AM/PM and I must say I have ceased to be amazed.
Age - 23
Lifting Experience - ~5 years
Height - 6'3
Weight - 197
BF% - 9.2% (as of 3 weeks ago haven't check recently but relatively close to this if not a little higher)
My training regimen is a little bit odd, as I have developed it for my lifestyle and the availability I have to a gym and how much volume I like to use. The breakdown was taken in part from Layne Nortons Power/Hyperthrophy Routine, but highly adjusted. Basically I lift M-F I don't have access to a gym on the weekends so I get all my work in during the week, with the occasional sprint work on the weekend. The breakdown for the each day is as follows.
Monday - High Volume, Upper-Body with emphasis towards hypertrophy.
Tuesday - High Volume, Lower-Body with emphasis towards hypertrophy.
Wednesday-Friday - Choose one main compound lift and focus on that lift with some thrown in accessory work for what has been lacking of late or what I feel the need for that day. Generally I choose one of the following compound lifts depending, on the day or week I rotate a lot of them in.
Bench, Deadlifts, Squats, Front Squats, Power Cleans, Clean to Press, Military Press
My training routine is a bit weird, but it's what works for me I like working out all 5 days and this has helped me do that and not get too worn out, my Monday and Tuesdays are hell a lot of supersets and compound sets. While my last 3 days of the week I really focus on one main compound lift and throw in some accessory work not as much volume but usually heavier weights as well.
I will be following Lean Gains/IF during this stage I have been doing it for about 3 weeks and really enjoy it, on workout days i eat anywhere from 3200-3500 and on non workout days or weekends anywhere from 2200-2500 calories My maintenance is right about 3,000. I've had good results so far with this style of dieting, and really enjoy the bigger meals and freedom and sticking to a set feeding window I feel like it eliminates a lot of snacking.
Id lay out a normal day of my nutrition but I don't think anyone really cares, I don't eat that strict and I get results nothing cutting edge but I will try to post some Food Porn every now and then of my meals to liven up this thread!
While logging these products I will only be using these two products along with a few staples.
Blue Gene- 5 tablets either 60 minutes pre workout or with first meal of non workout day.
Purple WRAATH- One scoop intra-workout, or sipped throughout day of non workout day
Muscle Marinade (occasionally when I need a pick-me-up)
Just wanted to give some starting lifts, I'm not strong nor will I ever be unless I really commit to bulking at 197 pounds at 6'3 I'm hardly big either but I lift for getting into the best shape possible, I run a lot in my free time and workout hard.
DB Flat Bench- 90x3
Pullups (consecutively BW)-16
Dips (consecutively BW)-24
So now that those awful stats are out there we can move on!
I began my dosing yesterday but internet was down so my first workout will be posted after this from yesterday!
