Mkretz reborn! White flood reborn log!
Hey guys!!! Hope you are ready for a great log, i know I am. I look forward to all the input and feedback i can get from anyone and everyone following this log. I am always down to learn more and more!!!
Huge thanks to Controlled Labs for letting me log this product. The original white flood was my go to preworkout for years esp when i started lifting. The simple fact that white flood remained un changed for so many years truly shows how great of a preworkout it was/is especially with the amazing number of preworkouts coming out nowadays. This gets me super excited to try new White Flood Reborn!!!!
I like the extra Caffeine since I am very stim tolerant.
Other supplements that i will be taking with this: Fish oil, multi, whey (pre workout and post sometimes, finaflex BCAA+SAA, reg bulk modern bcaa from nutraplanet, vit c, b coplex, creatine mono..........nothin fancy
Training: usually 5-6 workouts per week. Chest/tris, Back, Shoulders/bis, Legs......abs are thrown in when i have time although i am trying to make them a priority. I am trying to do them on my off days for a lot of volume as well but i always see to have a hard time really focusing in on them. Off days consist of cardio and abs...also i do cardio after every workout, i know i probably shouldnt cuz im trying to bulk but it lets me eat more and im honestly probably addicted to food.
I start each workout with a heavy compound movement usually for 5x5 or on shoulder day ill do cleans for sets of 2 and jerks for sets of 2, this focuses on strength and power. Then i Move to a speed/explosive type movement. Then i work in the hypertrophy rep range with drop sets and forced reps if I can get them. I train very high volume, i just enjoy the pump and being in the gym lol.
Diet: I like the idea of the benefits of fasting and have followed lF for a while but I am trying to move a little more towards mroe meals. As of right now I shoot for a 12 hour fast and drink a preworkout protein shake and then hit the gym. If I workout before teh 12 hour fast I train fasted with BCAAs. Post workout I will sometimes have a protein shake and sumtimes I just wait till I get home and eat the rest of my calories. If i workout later I will have a small preworkout meal but 80% of my calories come at night after I get home and before bed. Do you guys think that eating this much before bed would be bad? Calories range between 3800-4600 on workout days depending on workout (legs) and amount of cardio. On off days calories range from 3000-3800 again depending on cardio amount and length of my ab session. I have recently been doing a carb cycling diet but have gotten a few recommendations to just keep carbs steady.....not sure what I want to do.......any opinions? I think I want to keep the carb cycling which has been 2 or 3 days low (carbs only from veggies and dairy) then a high day around 400-500g carbs.
I have put on about 5 lbs in the last 3 weeks and I look forward to WFR helping me to continue this progress!!
I will take my first dose of WFR tomorrow but will post up todays crazy leg workout!

Eating before bed is not bad, total calories are.
i would drop the protein shake pre-workout, just roll with BCAA's. either is fine, but the shake is not necessary i would rather see you eat a meal prior and then flood 30 minutes prior (meal 90 before, and then flood 30)

The veggie/dariy days where you really drop kcals is not really necessary either, why not bring up some kcals on that day and lower on the workout days and make sure the weekly amount is still the same . it will aid you GREATLY with recovery
maybe 30g less on non-workout days and then a bit higher on workout days
for instance 300g on workout days and 270g on non-workout days
Keep Fat/Protein the same,

one note, after leg day yest i was super hot all night, couldnt sleep, and was super hot all morning, CRAZY!
05-08-2013, 10:28 PM
Today was day 1 with WFR!!! - mixed one extremely heaping scoop (probably 2 scoops) in 16 oz of water shook like 3 times and it was completely dissolved!
taste was fantastic - i have the fruit punch flavor - it was extremely crisp and refreshing, no type of chemical after taste at all, i wish i could drink it all day honestly. - no settling on the bottom either, mix ability and taste are 10/10 for sure!
I start drinking the preworkout pre workout but continue to drink it throughout my long workouts for continued energy and intensity. WFR gave me energy and intensity throughout the entire workout even set a pr on bench!!! no crash either.......day one was a huge success!
Today was chest/tris - legs are wrecked....they just dont even want to work lol - tomorrow is supposed to be a back day which means heavy deads but I am going to take off just to give my legs another day of rest in hopes i can break a pr on DL on friday! well i will do cardio and abs :-)
So today was awsome, i met up with an old friend for a workout which meant i had a spotter which meant heavy and a lot of forced reps that i never get!

if you take in 100g on non workout days and 500g on workout days then your average is 300
do 350 on workout days and 300 on non
protein/fat the same
your recovery will increase by 100x.
how do you expect to gain weight and muscle when you intake nearly nothing on off days when the body recovers most? The body grows out of the gym not in the gym dude. That is common sense.
05-09-2013, 06:25 AM
hate not having a spotter the forced reps are the most important!..nice workout this stuff makes me a beast lol

Your a real nice guy...
Im glad you know what mood i am better than myself.
You must be a psychologist?
please dont sit here and tell me how i feel when you dont know because i am not mad at anymore, nor have i ever said i was.
Making assumptions about me when you dont know a thing about me is what makes me mad.
Going on a Protein/Veggie off days and trying to do 500g of carbs on a workout day is just dumb and neglects growth and recovery especially in 1) an offseason and 2) trying to grow.
You will be around maintaince on offdays, but the point is recovery and you will see better mood/energy/performance.

I imagine if you cut down some of that volume you won't need 5,000+ calories a day. Including not trying to set a 1RM PR weekly.

Since you said you eat around 3400 on non-workout days and 4000 on workout days i would do this .. Just me though instead of massive cycles with your protein/veggies and 5000 calorie wokrout days.
Non Workout Days 3800 (225g Protein, 90g Fats, 520g Carbs)
Workout Days 4000 (225g Protein, 90g Fat, 570g Carbs)

Intensity > Volume ---> From the great dorian yates. Just Sayin'
I have said it about 500 times now, More calories daily will = Better recovery.
i have had SEVERAL clients before they started with me, did massive swings in kcals like that, and they all said the same exact thing, performance increased, and a bit of change on their routine and they saw crazy gains.
I had a guy who added 75+ Pounds on all big 3 lifts (bench/squat/DL) while dropping 5 pounds since starting with me 7 months ago, continually getting leaner and getting stronger.
Periodization is KEY to training.

Ever try increasing your intensity and dropping volume? Just curious... I think it would illict good gains for you.
Dont know what your 100% Goal is regarding weight gain or size, but i think that once you start to limit your volume and focus on the compounds a bit more, you will see better gains (with a better diet structure to boot)
my 2 cents for you.
05-12-2013, 08:38 AM
05-12-2013, 04:46 PM
I can guarantee if you reduced volume and focused on greater intensity or intensity techniques then you would see better results,
Keeping kcals higher on off days, and focusing more recovery and compounds.
My 2 cents.
You think you train intense? Go watch a layne norton or doug miller video. Then ask yourself how intense you train

sorry i did not update yest....workout was solid it was back/bis, my body was telling me to take it easy on DL so i did, legs were not recovered from leg day yet and back didnt feel great so i brought weight down and did an extra rep (5x6 instead of 5x5), focused on form...........had a great pump goin throughout the whole workout a very noticeable one so reborn was doin some good stuff!!! I also found myself to be sweating like CRAZY and then thought about it, ever since taking reborn i do sweat more, maybe not as much as yesterday but still a noticeable difference, not sure why
