Starting a log for CONTROLLED LABS GREEN MAGNITUDE AND WHITE FLOOD.
DESCRIPTIONS (stolen from the controlled labs site):
GREEN MAGNITUDE Green MAGnitude...Creatine with ATTITUDE !! If you want to increase your stamina in the gym and gain size and strength, Green MAGnitude is the right choice for you. If you want similar results in convenient capsule form, we recommend Green Bulge. Either way, you are getting a full dose of patented Magnesium Creatine Chelate that has been clinically proven to increase strength.
WHITE FLOOD White Flood is a cutting edge preworkout formula that will rev you up for lifting and cardio like none other. Not only will you experience out of this world pumps, but tons of extra energy and true muscle building potential. That muscle building potential comes from the addition of compounds usually not seen in preworkout formulas of the past.

It's time to FLOOD YOUR SYSTEM.... with the most advanced preworkout Nitric Oxide and Energy Enhancer available; White Flood!

OK, first things first. Id like to clear something up. So far everyone I have told about these products have replied the same... " Ive heard that they taste horrible!"
Ive heard it about 5 times now and heres the simple answer. I dont know what the old versions tasted like but this latest version tastes amazing! I have tried several preworkout and creatines and i would say this is one of two that i enjoyed the flavor.
Now that i got first impressions out of the way. today was day 1 for me and it fell on a leg and abs day. To tell the truth i really wasnt feeling like working out today because ive had a long day but i was looking forward to trying the new products.
I took 2 scoops of white flood prior to working out. about 40 minutes prior. Immediately after i took 1 scoop of green mag. Both mixed well and went down easy.
About the time i got to the gym i felt like i was somewhat more energized. i purposely went the last 5 days without a preworkout supp so that i would have an honest opinion about this one. maybe this is one of the reasons that i seemed to notice it like i did.
here was my workout today
leg press- all sets were 15 rep- 525 lbs, 650 lbs, 725 lbs, 725 lbs
standing leg curls- all 15 reps- 65 lbs, 80 lbs, 95 lbs, 95 lbs
seated leg extension- all 15 reps- 110, 140, 170, 180
calf press- 10 x 10 with 30 sec rest- 400 across the board
lunges- 4 x 15- unweighted, 35, 45, 50
laying leg curls- individauly done with slow control- 45, 65, 70, 70
at this point in my workout i was actualy surprised i still had plenty of energy.
hanging leg raises- 4 sets 20 reps each
v ups- 4 sets of 30
flutterkicks- 1 set of 100
weighted sit ups of 25 lbs to failure
if i would of had more time prior to my mission time i would of stayed... i still had plenty of energy. my impression of these products so far has been that i did gain energy but im intrested in seeing if i become immune to them like others ive tried. i also am looking forward to using them on days where i notice alot of pump like on bi days. intrested in seeing how well they get me pumped.
heres a pic of my water intake daily. as soon as i get my digital camera back from my friend ill post my before pics i took the other day
one question... a buddy said mix the two together but someone else told me dont. opinions?
08-26-2007, 09:14 AM
You can mix them if you prefer, but personally I don't. I recommend taking the GM 45-60 min pre and the WF anywhere between 0-30 min pre depending on when it "hits" you. I do 30.
Great workout and solid update, great to see you are getting some good energy
08-26-2007, 10:03 AM
I mix them.........i put them both in a half gallon jug and then start sipping 30 mins pre-workout and then throughout my workout and finish it when i am done.........been doing that for quite awhile........
08-26-2007, 10:30 AM
I would take them apart to do the taste reviews, then mix them together after that for convenience purposes.
Great to see you finally got them ... stay hydrated out there!!!

thanks guys... im going to try mixing them to see how i like it. im also going to try maces way, but so far i think most people like taking the mag an hour prior and the flood 30 minutes.
im going to figure out whats best for me

ok, i went ahead and tried takign the green mag one hour prior and the flood about 10 minutes prior. i really think it worked better for me so thanks for the suggestions.
db press- 70 x 20, 85 x 12, 95 x 12, 105 x 10
flat db flyes- 40 x 15, 45 x 15, 50 x 15, 50 x 15
incline db- 70 x 12, 80 x 12, 85 x 12, 90 x 10
dips- weighted with 45 to failure... no idea how many, but only one set
cable cross overs- 65 x 15, 60 x 15, 55 x 15
lat pull down- 145 x 15, 155 x 15, 160 x 15, 175 x 10
good mornings- 110 x 10 for 2 sets
undergrip pull down- 155 x 15, 165 x 15, 180 x 8
single arm cable row- 55 x 15, 60 x 15, 65 x 15
pull ups- weighted 45 to failure
so far what i like best about these supps for me is that i can go from feeling lazy and not wanting to go to the gym to having alot of good energy within one hour. i let my lifting partner try the flood and he agreed with me that its a real mood improvement for lazy days.
another plus to this so far has been the lasting effect of the flood. when im taking other pre workout supps such as no exp. i find that its worn off about midway or before i can finish. im having to force myself to keep to my schedule because i feel like continuing on at the end. the energy is there for a long period time.
my mission time for tomorrow is a late one so in the morning im going to get those measurements. also my friend should be back from baghdad with my cam so those pics will be coming too

so today i realized im pretty much hooked on this stuff. atleast the wf i am. i really cant express the energy increase i have with this stuff. as for the gm... im going to give it some time before i start making decisions.
also i measured up today. i did my bi's prior to working out so no pump and came to just over 17. also did my bf % came out to 12.3%
08-30-2007, 02:16 PM
Hell of a workout man, great job. Nice to see WF working so well for you and providing what you had hoped. Looking forward to your thoughts on GM.
Awesome measurements as well, very impressive.
08-30-2007, 02:29 PM
ok ok... so i found a new problem with these products!!! i managed to spill some of the gm on my desk before going to the gym earlier and i just saw a trail of ants marching to it! either gm is candy for ants or they are in need of a solid creatine
