    Well im not very sore 2day and my chest is looking full. I had some carbs this morning after tennis. I was dieing out there but it was a great cardio session.

    I am going to train back later this evening. Give me some time to recover from tennis

    I've never been so tired after a workout I think. After death had left me I slammed my GF shake and then laid for another 15min because I thought my stomach was going to explode, but luckily it didn't.

    Also some good/bad news. I thought a serving was 4 scoops of GF, it's only 3 . So mines almost gone. I have been doing 4 scoops for however long.

    That might be why my taste isn't like RR's lol. Man I feel so dumb right now

    Well yesterday was my final workout with GF. I mixed it with some carbo force (carb load day and I was in a pinch). Damn now that was good,lol.

    I trained DC style yesterday because I was short on time. I had a great workout. I'll copy paste it from my other log because I forget numbers.

    I'll do a final review over the weekend with pictures next week along with measurements.

    Now I know some may say well, wtf you stopped using it friday, why wouldn't you do all that now? Well next week is the last week of my "hardcore cut" and without GF I dont think I'd be where im at recovery wise, so I owe it to GF

    Final Review


    I'll get some before and after pic's up at week's end (see last post).

    For now I'll give me overall feelings on the product

    Taste:5/10

    I give it a 5/10 because I didn't like it but I didn't hate it. It goes in the middle. They use leucine which taste's like s h i t by itself and flavoring it is hard. They also use a nutriet rich carb source which are also usually blan in flavor. I can't hate on the flavor and for the ingredients in it im surprised it tasted as good as it did. Now if you want to make this bad boy taste good mix a 1/2 carbo force in there


    Mixability:7.5/10

    DONT MIX IN A BLENDER!!! This was foamy as hell and really hurt my stomach. However in a shakker cup it mixed up A LOT less foamy and was a lot easier for consumption for me. Only thing that sux is you have to use a good amount of water to mix it up but your getting a lot of stuff in there so it's a give and take relationship.

    Recovery: 9/10

    After about the first week my DOMS was cut down big time. I was dieting hardcore the whole time I was using this and DOMS is a ***** for me when dieting. Within 36hours my DOMS was completely gone, not hindering any other workouts. This was very nice.

    Muscle Glycogen Replenishment: 9/10

    I would drink this then hit the shower. After i was done with my shower my muscles were feeling nutrient full, not cosmetic NO type full but food pump full. Only reason this isn't getting a 10/10 is because sometimes I would have some GI discomfort and bloat.


    Overall Rateing: 8/10

    I was dieting and didn't really lose much strength or size. Mind you I was almost 100% on with everything in my regimon but I usually lose strength during cuts useing the same stuff I was this time and GF was implatamented and I saw a difference in musle fullness, strength, and recovery. I would purchase this and would probably be used best during a "recomp" or lean bulk.

    Honestly if your looking for something with a sweet taste and what not GF is probably not for you but if you can man up then GF is for you. Results are what matter most to me and thats what GF gave me.

    I was very pleased with my experience and want to thank Controlled Labs again for giving me this oppertunity and everyone who followed my log and will look at it in the future.

    Nice review, DW. I have been hearing (and reading) some good things about Golden Finish. May try it out sometime later in the year, once my competitions are all over with.

I would purchase this and would probably be used best during a "recomp" or lean bulk.

    Honestly if your looking for something with a sweet taste and what not GF is probably not for you but if you can man up then GF is for you. Results are what matter most to me and thats what GF gave me.

    I was very pleased with my experience and want to thank Controlled Labs again for giving me this oppertunity and everyone who followed my log and will look at it in the future.

    AWESOME Review bro. Great job. Thank you for all your logging, we appreciate it!!! Glad you enjoyed it!!!!!
