    DAY 26- HIIT Cardio
    No weights today since I found that I was almost overtraining with only one day in betwee my splits, so just did a quick few intervals and had a great day. I don't find that White Flood really affects my performance with the intervals, they're just brutal lol.

    DAY 27 - Headed back home for Thanksgiving, no working out today.


    DAY 28 - LEGS

    I hit the gym up early morning having only taken in my GM,WF and some simple carbs because it was a busy day. (The whole weekend was lol). On a side note, frozen yogurt made into a shake is heavenly... and it has tons of sugar to boost me lol. I was probably on a bit of an energy rush when I hit the gym this morning, and so even though it was early my energy was through the roof. Strength was pretty good as well, although I'm focusing on slow movements and stabilization on a lot of my movements.

    I can't comment too much on endurance since I got my little sis to actually come to the gym ( :O) which she never does, and she wanted to leave after a bit of cardio and a shower, and I'm the chauffeur. Anyways the workout was my typical leg routine, a tad short.
    Workout:
    BB Squats
    DB Lunges
    Leg Extensions & Curls
    Calf Raises
    Hack Squats
    Some quick core work

    Overall had a great workout while it lasted, Sugar + Caffeine = Power

    DAY 29- Thanksgiving Dinner AND Chest Workout

    Well we had our turkeys today, but it didn't stop me from slipping out to the gym even though I was doing same crazy cooking izza: Not just for turkey dinner, but freezer stuff at university for myself. Anyways I hit the gym midafternoon instead of the usual early morning so I didn't have any morning grogginess that I sometimes find in my workouts.
    I took both of them about 25 mins pre-WO, and I have to say I didn't feel much of a difference today. The workout was great, I'm really liking the results from working with only dumbells instead of the bar for some of my chest exercises. Throw in some weighted dips and pushups and I have a great routine going. This was at the really nice gym back at home too, not my university gym with the ancient weights so I had a great workout. Strength and endurance were both 8 or 9 I'd say, but energy was not boosted that much by WF so I'd say a 7 or so.

    Workout was:
    DB Flat Bench
    Pec Fly's
    DB Incline Bench
    DB Decline
    Weighted Dips
    Body Weight Dips + Pushups to Exhaustion

    Overall had a great workout.

    DAY 30: Thanksgiving Monday
    No time to workout today, travelling back to University with all my food (Even BBQ'ed an extra turkey for myself lol. Lots of clean white turkey meat for me in the near future!)

    I hope everybody had a great thanksgiving and got to spend some special time with their loved ones. 60% done, another good 3 weeks of working out to go

    DAY 31: Back

    I'm trying to mix in the Green Mag with my BCAA's during my workout, because I didn't really any difference taking the GM pre or immediately post-WO, so now I'm giving it a shot in the middle. I think by taking it perio-workout it should get into the muscles that need it, or at the very least still be absorbed as well as taken before. As far as energy goes, I don't think I'm noticing the effects of White Flood much at all now, compared to when I started the log. My body really seems to have adapted to the stim combo I think. I could try upping it to three scoops and compare tomorrow, I might do that but then I'm getting into pretty high dosing of caffeine, might get super-jittery.

    Today's workout was decent, nothing special. Energy was normal, and endurance/strength weren't out of the ordinary either.

    Workout:
    Back Deadlifts 5x6
    T-Bar Lat Pulldown4x7 Superset BB Trap Raises 4x7 + Hold
    Pullovers 4x8 Superset Back Fly 4x8
    Back Ext 4x10 Standing Row 4x7
    Chins 4x8 Low Row 4x10

    DAY 32
    Well today was going to be a leg workout, but woke up feeling yesterday's workout so I'm giving it a day off ,the body needs it.

    DAY 33 - Leg Workout
    I took the GM periWO again. Didn't notice any change, and I still had DOMS but it goes well with my BCAA's lol. Had a good squat day today, bumped up the weights on almost all of my lifts. I worked out around lunch not early morning this time, and I had a solid 5 days rest since the last leg workout so it was definitely calling for a boost. Everything felt good while working out, energy was great because it was already almost noon, although I'm sure the White Flood helped with that too. Strength was great, and the sets went pretty smoothly so not bad for endurance. The workout definitely flowed today.

    Workout:
    BB Squats
    Standing Calf Raises
    Front Squats
    Seated Calf Raises
    Freeweight Leg Extensions
    Leg Curls
    Seated Calf Raises
    Lunges
    Hack Squat

    DAY 34: Chest

    Well after having a busy morning, I was just getting frustrated with how things went so I decided to hit up the gym in the late afternoon when I rarely work out. I gulped down the GM and WF and hit the gym about 15 mins later. I had great energy because I guess I was a bit frustrated, but I wasn't resting enough between my sets I found and so I would do the first 5 reps then just run out of juice. So the strength was good but I was going to fast, I need to recover more!
    WO:
    BB Bench
    Shoulder Press Machine
    BB Decl. Bench
    Chest FLy's
    Incline DB Bench
    Dips
    DB Bench/Pushups to Exhaustion


    Day 35: Well I knew this would happen, but when I workout in the evenings I always seem to be quite sore the next day. I don't get in enough cals after workout out in the evenings I guess, anyways another rest day and will hit up the gym for a good back workout tomorrow.

    Day 36
    Well today I really noticed the energy. I find that it hits my the most when I take it about 20 minutes beforehand, and just sit and wait, or do something not too distracting until the energy hits me. Then I am feeling pumped and can hit the weights with some great focus. The workout went well, with some great focus at the start, and I suppose it lasts me until the end but I usually don't think about it after an hour of weights.

    Workout:
    Deadlifts
    Dumbell Rows
    Lat Pulldown
    Narrowgrip Pullups
    Pullovers
    Back Fly's
    Back Extensions

    I'd say a 9/10 for focus at the start, 9/10 for energy and just a good workout overall.

    Day 37/38

    After a not so restful restday I hit the gym first thing in the morning, with only a quick shake. I took 2 loaded scoops of WF and it sure got me energized. It was weird though because I was still yawning and felt sort of groggy but when I was hitting the weights everything was going well. The dumbbells were moving and I was wondering how I managed to even be awake to push! Got some good energy. I still am getting awesome veins too, but that’s just really superficial so I don’t concern myself with that too much.
    Workout: Shoulders
    DB Delts, Shoulder Press, Romanian Rows, Lateral Raises and some Rotator Cuff Exercises.

    DAY 39- Legs
    I always find leg workouts to be the toughest. I tend to push myself hard with tons of squats/leg presses, so these workouts are the best test of my energy. They don’t usually last more than 50 minutes, but they’re gruelling. Today was no different, and the workout seemed brutal. The WF just wasn’t doing it for me today. I really have on an off days with it; I think that my powder isn’t mixed evenly in the container for some reason. Some days I’ll notice blue artificial colouring/bitterness at the bottom of the shaker cup, other days it’s fine. Today was one of those blue-bottom days, and not alot of energy for me.
    Workout: Legs
    BB Squats
    Hack Squat
    Leg Press
    Front Squat
    Leg Extension & Curls
    Calf Raises (Seated and Standing)
    Lunges

    DAY 40- Sore all over today. Taking it easy, got to listen to the body!

    DAY 41- Chest
    I had some great focus today, but I think it was because I changed around the music on my playlist more than anything else. Still no water retention from the GM (which is good fine with me). Decent workout, but nothing special to note.

    Workout: Chest
    Bench: Flat, Decline AND Incline
    DB Fly's
    Dips
    Pullovers

    DAY 42: Rest Day
    I find that working my chest tires out my shoulders, so I usually try and give a day inbetween my Chest WO and my back/shoulders.

    DAY 43: Back
    Had the usual preworkout setup (Oatmeal 90mins pre, WF 20mins before, GM During). I find that sipping on some BCAA + Green Mag during my working is the best timing for it; I didn't notice any effect for taking it before my workout so I figured taking it during would let the stuff get uptaken either during my workout or right afterwards. Today there wasn't too much energy from the White Flood. It seems to be tapering off in effectiveness for me after being on it for so long now. For my last workout or two I think I'll up it to 3 scoops and see how it goes.

    Workout:
    Deadlifts
    Low Rows
    T-Bar Rows
    Chinups and Pullups
    Trap Raises
    Back Extensions
    Bent Rows

    DAY 44: Shoulders

    Today I had two cups of tea before my WF, so I was running high on caffeine today. (Black tea has a decent amount of caffeine, it's no coffee but it adds up!). Had tons of energy during my workout but the endurance wasn't there. I was bouncing off the walls, but I just couldn't pull off that last rep. I guess White Flood isn't the solution to all my problems, just the mindset and energy Maybe a few more carbs before my workout next time will do the trick.

    Workout:
    DB Delts, Shoulder Press, Romanian Rows, Lateral Raises and some Rotator Cuff Exercises.

    DAY 46 : Legs Again
    After a day off (Still training pretty hard. Not overtraining though because I'm seeing decent gains). Had an awesome workout today. Just was in the zone. Had some good sustained energy throughout my workout, and I just had this insane focus today, I loved it. I had the bar on my shoulders ready to squat, and it was the cool calm and determined feeling every set. Today was one of those good days' maybe I woke up on the right side of bed, or maybe the powder was a bit extra strong lol.

    Workout: (Long one today)
    Squats
    Leg Press
    Standing Calf Raises
    Front Squats
    Seated Calf Raises
    Freeweight Leg Extensions
    Leg Curls
    Seated Calf Raises
    Lunges
    Hack Squat

    DAY 47: CHest Again

    Well the White Flood is getting low, only a few more workouts left. I think some of my scoops in the past have been a bit generous lol, because with not taking WF on some off days I should have a bit more left than this. A housemate may have taken a few scoops though, I'll never know.
    Today's workout wasn't the greatest. I didn't get that energy boost that I often get about 20 mins after WF, and still didn't feel any boost really at all during my workout; sometimes it kicked in a bit later but nada today. Could have been the rainy weather keeping my energy down. I had to actually drop the weight on one exercise which sucked, but perhaps my form improved

    Workout: Chest
    Barbell Flat and Decline Bench
    Dumbell Incline Bench
    DB Fly's
    DB Pullovers
    Dips
    Pushups

    DAY 48: Not DOMS, but I can tell my muscles are still recovering. Giving them a break

    Day 49: Back Workout

    Well it's almost over and I've got enough so I'm going to put 3 scoops in. The first thing I noticed was the taste; I still used the same amount of water and the WF sure was sour today. It still took about 25 minutes until I started feeling it. I think 3 scoops is way too much for me ; my hands started getting jittery and after working out I couldn't really write for a few hours I had such crazy hand jitters. Aside from that, my workout went amazingly , every lift was a powerful explosion. Lots of raw energy. Too bad the jitters are so annoying otherwise I'd put 3 scoops in every day, but my body would probably adapt quite quickly to that trick. I really liked the intensity of my workout today though.

    Workout:

    Back Deadlifts
    T-Bar Lat Pulldown Superset BB Trap Raises
    Pullovers with Superset Back Fly
    Back Ext with Standing Row
    Chins with Low Row
    Romanian DB Rows

    Day 50: Last Legs Workout
    (Actually day 51, needed a break but wanted to log another one).
    Today I took 3 scoops of White Flood again, remembering to mix it with more water. Took the same time, about 25 minutes for me to notice the effects. This time I got this funny eye twitch from the crazy caffeine and energy. I even noticed my heart rate speeding up I think, and almost felt out of breath, definitely odd feeling. The energy today dropped off towards the end of the workout, and a few hours afterwards I was exhausted, sort of a post-caffeine crash if that's possible. The hard part of my leg workout with the squats went well at the start, with the end becoming a bit sloppy. Not the same clean energy as 1.5-2 scoops way back a few weeks ago.

    Workout:
    BB Squats (Regular then Front)
    DB Lunges (Front and Lateral)
    Leg Extensions & Curls
    Calf Raises
    Hack Squat
    Leg Press

    PRODUCT SUMMARY/OVERALL OPINION

    Once again I would just like to thank Controlled Labs for sending me out these 2 products to log for them. I tried to be as honest as I could; If you have any questions about my comments or want to ask me anything, post here or PM me. My final thoughts on the products:

    White Flood
    - Great for giving you an energy boost to get the plates moving
    - Taste was so-so. Not an amazing lemonade flavour but it was decent, not a nasty detergent-like flavour that some lemonades are like.
    - Mixability is awesome, it will dissolve by the time you find your spoon to mix it with!
    - Energy was clean and sustained at the start, but I found that it varied. I would recommend shaking your tub of White Flood occasionally so that the different components don't separate
    - The effects of White Flood seemed to be best up until about Day 30-35, then I noticed a slight tapering off. I would recommend taking WF for maybe a month, then taking time off, or upping the dosage if you want to try that.

    Green Magnitude
    - Tastes Awesome!
    - Mixes readily as well, perhaps not quite instantly as WF but you should have no problems with it.
    - Made me quite thirsty for the first week, although I noticed no water bloating/retention
    - Didn't notice too much from taking Green Mag on it's own from before my workouts, and ended up taking it during the workout.


    Overall, I would recommend that if you're interested in a pre-WO energy booster, White Flood is one of the better options I've tried. The good news is that there is half-sizes of White Flood good for about a month for only $25. Definitely give it a shot for a month. As for Green Magnitude, it is a great tasting creatine with some other goodies, but I honestly can't say I noticed enough of an effect from it to recommend it. At 80 Servings for $35 it gets you some good creatine, flavour, mixability and a few other goodies so it's a decent value if that's what your looking for.

    Thanks again for this opportunity Controlled Labs,
    Steve

    Yea I definitely enjoyed the energy from White Flood. I think I might buy another half-tub for those early morning workouts when I really don't feel up to hitting the gym.
