    Also, just so there is no confusion. My days listed are SOLEY lifting days. I still take Orange Triad on my off days as well. Obviously nothing to report for that, unless I pull a Franco and go lift a car up just for the hell of it.

    Day 7 - Didn't God even rest on this????

    Ruminations: Didn't go do deads on Saturday. The wife was crying about quality time and crap and well, it was pouring anyways so I crashed in and veg'd out. So the following information is in regards to lifting on the most holy of days (that would be Sunday in case you didn't know.) Feeling good so far as far as aches and pains. It would've been nice if Orange Triad has just alittle something to releave soreness faster. I guess I can only ask for so much....

    Supplementation: Check previous for times and doses.

    Cardio - Sprint 1/2 mile - 3:30
    Skipped 1/4 mile - untimed.
    Ran ~1 mile untimed (close to 8min estimated) later at night.*Sprinted to just get the blood going at the start and then after walking a follow-up lap, I did alternating skips (think plyos).

    Deadlifts -
    185x12x1
    225x10x2
    275x6x2
    285x5x2
    315x0
    - Crapped out on this. Got it off the ground about knee high and couldn't get up anymore. It's okay though, it'll come. Oh yes, it will come.

    Barbell Bent Over Rows - Reverse Grip
    135x12x2
    155x10x2

    *Was pressed for time but had to add this in.

    Good Mornings
    100X12x4
    *This was my warm up for Deads combined with a few body weight hypers.

    Pull-Ups
    BWx10x4
    *Alternated wide and mid grips.



    Overall: Not a great workout by any stretch, but good enough to get me sore and get the blood/sweat going. Definately sore in my gluts, my rhoms, and my traps, so it was productive. Orange Triad is still working great, as are the other Controlled Labs products. A little pissed since I ordered my White Flood and Blue Up last week and I won't get it until Wednesday.
    Was looking forward to seeing what kind of damage I could do tomorrow on Chest. Oh well. Today (Monday) was my day off as normal so the fun starts all over tomorrow!!!








    I guess even God wants you to lift some heavy ass weights too!!!

    Day 8 - Getting serious!

    Overview: Today was a good day. Got my White Flood and Blue Up in and god damn if it didn't pump me up like Hanz and Franz!!!



    Let me tell you, White Flood and Blue Up has got to be one of the most potent combinations for focus, strength, and energy. Combine these with Purple Wraath, Green Mag and Orange Triad, and what do you have? I don't know offhand but it was pretty bad ass. Today just felt so, pardon my french, fucking sweet that I just didn't want to leave the gym, period.

    Supplementation: Woke at 9:00am, and took my serving of Orange Triad. About 30 minutes later I took my Blue Up. About 15 minutes from the gym I started sipping my Purple Wraath, Green Mag, White Flood concoction. Actually tasted damn good and I think I still have the previous formula Flood. Continuing sipping this throughout my workout and had to refill twice.

    Chest, ah, a beautiful thing....

    Cardio - Efx Elliptical R7 - 10 minutes - 150 calories. (Start)
    Treadmill - 1/4 mile Sprint - 1:30 - 50 calories. (End)

    *Felt like readding the EFX to take some stress off my shins for the time being.

    Flat Bench BB Press -
    155x12x1
    205x5x3
    215x5x2
    220x5x1
    155xFailure(13) - Partials on this and 135, no lock outs.
    135xFailure(9)

    *This felt almost easy today. I kept inching up since I was hitting the 5 relatively smooth and easy(mostly). I think next time around I'm going to up that to atleast 245 and see what happens.

    Incline DB Press -
    40x12x1
    45x12x1
    50x10x1
    60x8x1

    *Hit this right after Bench and WOW, loved it. Had a great pump in my chest.

    Incline BB Press -
    135x10x1
    *Shits and giggles pretty much.

    Decline Sit Ups -
    BWx30x1

    Cable Crunch Sit Ups -
    140x30x1
    140x20x1



    Thoughts: What could I say? I didn't want to get off the bench today. I really thought about loading heavier and heavier but that's for next go. I found though what everyone has been saying about White Flood to be true. You need like NO RECOVERY BETWEEN SETS ON THIS!!! I just wanted to pound them out over and over. I think I forced 20-30 seconds rest between sets and even then I was itching to get back to it. Funny thing was it was smooth and fluid. No straining to get a last rep, or trouble to lock out. Nope. It was like, "BAM!" each one. I was loving it. If this is how White Flood + Blue Up is gonna treat me, then I'm even more of a CL junkie!!! I need I need!!!

    This has to have been one of the best workouts that I have EVER had, atleast in the respects of focus, energy, and the pump I got. It was just obscene. I can't wait for Friday and Arms/Shoulders. It's gunna be fun....


    Ah, let me throw my ratings up too.
    White Flood - Strong smell out of the tub. Kind of funky actually. It's like you KNOW it's going to taste odd. Mixed 1 scoop in with my 1 scoop of PW and 1 scoop of GM and it was tasty as hell. Having had a sample pack before, I'd have to rate original taste as 7/10. However, with this combo, 9.5/10. It's just like, wow.

    Blue Up - No candy ass, have to take at night and hope you see results testosterone booster. I love that you take this about 30 minutes out from the gym and IT WORKS WHEN YOU WANT IT! I had my best gains and best fat loss on this before and I am expecting nothing less this time around too.
    10/10

    Orange Triad - Best damn Multi for your money in my opinion, and as we all know, I'm always right since, well, I'm me. No joint pain, increased energy, and a better feeling after eatting. This stuff is great, period.
    10/10

    Controlled Labs has made some of the most kick ass products out there. Anyone that wants to piss away money on BSN, let me kick you in the nuts, take your money, and get you on the Controlled Labs train. I'm still keeping the money though. You won't look like Ronnie, so don't buy the hype that 3x Caffeine Bullshit like Xplode will make you anywhere close. Training and adding legitimate products from Controlled Labs is the ONLY way to go. You don't think so? I'll kick you in the nuts again for shits and giggles then.

    Game on!

    Day 9 - My wallet is the one that says "Bad motherfucker on it".


    Recap: I honestly don't know what the hell to say. I doubled up my dose of White Flood today to the suggested 2 scoops and HOLY CRAP! I had some of the god awful worst pains resulting from some of the god damn best pumps in my shoulders today. Hell, I STILL feel it. I'm just stupified at how damn well White Flood, Blue Up and Orange Triad have been working. Only complaint though is I still have that nagging shin/calf pain on my right leg. I seriously think I tweaked the calf since the pain isn't centralized in one spot in that area. Oh well, it'll pass. Today was a good day, to say the least!


    Cardio -
    5 minute warm up - 3.5 on the treadmill / 4.0 incline. - 50 calories
    20 minute cool down - 4.0 treadmill / 5.0 incline - 200 calories

    *Incline felt good so I will be keeping this in for my walking. No running today.

    Shoulders -
    Front Lat Raises - Supinated Grip - DB - 30x12x2
    Arnold Style Front Lat Raises - DB - 30x12x2
    Shoulder Press - seated DB - 50x10x2
    Front Lat Raises - Barbell - 40x10x2
    Round the World - Plates - 25x10x2, 45x10x1
    Side Lat Raises - 25x8x2
    Rear Delts - Reverse Pec Deck - 100x12x3

    *My shoulders were so fucking swole after this. It was hard to even move them but felt so damn good too!

    Biceps -
    Preacher Curls - EZ - 55x12x2, 75x10x2, 45x8x1
    EZ Bar Curls - 75x6x2
    21's - Barbell - 40x2, 30x2
    Hammers - 35x10x2
    Pronated Curls - 25x8x1


    Triceps -
    Laying Tricep Extension - EZ - 75x10x3
    Laying Skull Crushers - EZ - 75x10x3
    Supinated Tricep Extensions - Cable - 50x20x1, 100x12x1, 140x10x3

    *Supinating my hands on these made them feel so much more effective.


    Thoughts: My shoulders were blasted and my triceps weren't too far behind. I was suprised too since I got such a massive pump about 10 minutes into the weights and it just hung for the whole time. Again, another day I just did not want to leave the gym. I got in an hour earlier than normal and ended up working out an additional hour! It was so fucking sweet and when I left, was I tired? Fuck no. White Flood and Orange Triad are CRAZY ENERGY! I love it!
    Seriously thinking about trying 275 - 315 on Sunday with my partner there. My energy and strength feels great! Might be too ballsy but gotta see!

    I'm telling you people. You want mad energy, crazy pumps, and wild strength? Get on this fucking combo. Hell, make bodybuilding.com OFFER THIS COMBO!


    White Flood, Blue Up, and Orange Triad!!!!!

    Up next, Squats!!!!!!!!! Oh shit am I gonna be hurting tomorrow!

    Day 10 - Been a busy weekend!

    Overview: Been feeling good on the combined stacking of Orange Triad with Blue Up and White Flood. My strength though wasn't the greatest this weekend and could be due to a few factors. Could've been lacking on resting my body from Friday leading into the weekend, lack of sleep, reduced caloric intake, etc etc. I bumped up my White Flood dosage as well to 2 scoops as per the instructions. I don't feel any real difference so I may go back to one. However, I've grown acustomed to the taste of WF mixed with PW and GM. It's pretty damn good to be honest.

    Saturdays workout (Legs/Back) -
    *I decided that if I was going to be sore following one or the other and not be able to hit the other exercise the following day(s) then I would hit the core movements together on this day.

    SLDL -
    *Ended up being my warm up since an asshole at the gym uses the rack to do barbell curls and pose instead of what is fucking meant for. Needless to say, the asshole was there so I had to hop in so I could make sure time wasn't wasted doing bullshit.
    95x10x2
    135x10x2


    Deadlifts -
    185x12x2
    225x10x2
    275x6x2

    *Been trying to inch back to 315 and I felt like attempting a bigger jump than I should've with 300 and well, after 6 inches off the floor, I couldn't get 300 up, so I had to swallow my pride and roll back to 275.

    Squats -
    185x10x2
    205x10x2
    225x10x2

    *Need to find better foot positioning and maybe strengthen my knees since they buckle inward.

    Cardio -
    Jumping Rope - 10 minutes
    *Figured that dull pain is actually muscular and not my shin itself. Now just have to work to get it gone.

    Thoughts on the day: While not a great day, not a bad one either considering I was doing both Deads and Squats and didn't want to leave the gym. White Flood gives great energy and focus and my sets flew by as did my rest periods. Overall very happy with the products from Controlled Labs. Orange Triad makes a great compliment and vice versa to White Flood as the energy it gives after a workout when White Flood starts to wear off is awesome too. Both products are definately what the say. 10/10 is all there is!

    Day 11 - Sunday Sunday Sunday!

    Overview: Another decent day. I think it was perhaps a mistake to do chest day the next day after doing Deads and Squats the day before. I just didn't feel like I had anything going on with regards to my bench. I felt weak. It flat out sucked. Got my reps in though, just not at the weight I wanted.


    Supplements: Took dose of Orange Triad 30 minutes from the Gym. Added White Flood, Purple Wraath and Green Magnitude in 15 minutes out. 10 minutes out I took my Blue Up. Was pumped to go and fully focused.


    Cardio -
    Treadmill - Incline 4.5 - Speed 4.0 - 15 minutes
    *Seems to help with building my calves/shins fatigue and endurance. Gets them pretty damn tight though.

    Flat Bench Barbell -
    155x12x1
    185x10x1
    205x10x1
    225x5x1
    225x3x1
    205x6x1
    185x10x1

    *Pathetic to say the least. No spotter sucked too. I was hoping to go higher today but was just sapped.

    Incline Smith Barbell Chest Press -
    135x10x1
    155x10x1
    185x8x2

    *Far easier than Flat Bench was today.

    Stop Pause/Reset Bench Press -
    185x8x3
    155x8x1

    *Felt that since my weight suffered, maybe getting in a few things to shock me would help next time around. I don't ever bounce off my chest, so my bottom position has to get stronger.

    Incline DB Chest Press -
    45x15x1
    50x12x1
    55x10x1
    65x6x1

    *Left elbow started feeling odd. Had trouble on stability.


    Stretched out afterwards for about 10 minutes.


    Thoughts: Really disappointed in the workout today. Was lacking in strength badly. My CL stack was doing what it needed to, but my body just didn't want to play along. Again, this was probably due to the bone headed misjudgment of doing a compound day the following day after doing double compounds prior. I won't be doing that again.

    Day 12 - Another fabulous Monday....


    Intro: Usually I take Mondays off seeing as I generally try to hit Friday - Sunday and then rest Mondays. However, I have to work early tomorrow so had to throw in today. I originally planned it as just a cardio day. But who wants to waste time in a gym just on cardio. So I did biceps and triceps. My shoulders got punished enough the last 2 days so I left them alone today.

    Supplements: The usual suspects. (See prior posts).



    Cardio -
    10 minutes - Speed 4.0 - Incline 4.0
    Skipped rope (end) - 5 minutes

    *Gonna hide that rope. I know I shouldn't do it now with my shin hurting, but I do them anyways. Damn I'm hard headed.

    Preacher Curls -
    55x12x2
    70x10x2


    Standing EZ Bar Curls -
    70x10x2

    21's -
    30x3

    Hammer Curls -
    45, 40, 35, 30, 25, 20, 15 x failure all
    *Had to run the rack. Great pump!

    Seated Curls -
    25x10x2

    Laying Tricep Extensions -
    65x15x1
    75x12x1
    85x10x2


    Laying EZ Bar Close Grip Bench -
    65x15x1
    75x12x1
    85x10x2


    Tricep Push Downs -
    80x10x1
    70x10x1
    60x10x1
    50x10x1
    40x10x1
    30x10x1

    *Gauntlet again. Woo!

    Reverse Pec Deck -
    80x5x1
    70x5x1
    60x5x1
    50x10x1

    *I don't do rear delts as much as I should so I added it in today anyways.


    Thoughts: Today was a far better day that my weekend was. While still not entirely happy with the weight, I decided I was going to go lower and more reps today for a switch. I had a great pump in the bi's and tri's for a bit after the gym. The bi's are still pumped however 8 hours later. It's awesome.Controlled Labs ftw once again!


    Eventually....

    Day 13 - oh there were some fireworks on this day! Happy be-lated 4th people!

    Overview: Got up nice and early to hit my session before laying into some bbq ribs, t-bone steaks and a variety of other goodies from our cookout. Woke up feeling good too. Days off in the middle of the week are nice, but I could ask for more of them! Well, let's get to it, back and legs!

    Supplements: See previous posts for choices and times.


    Cardio -
    None today.

    Deadlifts - (rack deads/resets)
    95x10x1
    135x10x1
    225x10x2
    275x8x2
    315x6x2
    335x3x1
    (PB)
    *Chose to work on form today with everything leading up to the 335. I did dead's off the lowest level pins and standing on an aerobics step-up board so the bar was about 2 inches below my kneecaps to start with and worked from there. Resetting after each dead is a pain in the ass but felt good as hell. Just eats up alot of time.

    Leg Press -
    305x20x4

    Lat Pull Downs -

    *My obliques are lacking IMO. My abs are shaping nicely but the obs aren't keeping up. Gotta work on this...



    Thoughts: All in all a good day. After the deadlifts and leg press, I really wanted to do nothing else. Good thing a few guys I lift with were there. Started bullshitting and sure enough, got me working in then. Was really happy with my rows and deads and look forward to pushing them harder!

    Well, alittle more than 1/2 way through my bottle of Orange Triad and so far, it's done what it's touted as doing. It's great for the joints, energy and controlling appetite. I'm really happy with it, and adding White Flood and Blue Up to it just seems to make everything better. Some great synergy here in Controlled Labs products, and I look forward to more of the same in the future!

    Day 14 - Saturday's Workout!


    Overview: Felt tired as hell from Friday night, just not sleeping right lately I guess. I think I need to make some changes to my diet as well as my strength, or lack there of is starting to bother me. My bench is just getting weaker, as have other exercises. I don't know what's going on with it. Well, perservere and overcome, right? So with that, today was chest!

    Supplements: Same as usual, check previous posts.

    Cardio -
    Ran 1/8 mile sprints in between sets.

    Flat bench -
    135x15x1
    185x10x1
    205x8x1
    225x3x4
    185x8x1
    135x5x1

    *Sad, my bench is so lacking lately....

    Incline Smith Press -
    135x10x2
    155x8x2


    Flat Bench DB Press -
    60x12x2
    70x10x2
    75x10x1


    Thoughts: Spent a ton of time changing things on bench but I still covered what I was really going for. I'm seriously getting peeved at my lacking strength, and I am going to refocus on my diet and intake. Perhaps that's the main problem. We'll see.

    Day 15 - Another case of the Mondays....

    Overview: Well, took Sunday off to play a bit of tennis early morning with my pops and my shin/calf was still bothering me so I decided to rest the remainder of the day. So, today was back and was looking forward to trying to duplicate my 335 lift the other day, but to no avail...Orange Triad is working great as usual. No creaks, pops, or pain anywhere else and I've noticed my knees feeling much better after runs/workouts. Definately needs to be a staple in peoples supplement lines!

    Supplements: Same as prior workouts, check back in the log!

    Cardio -
    5/8 mile jog - 4:30

    SLDL -
    135x10x2

    Deadlifts -
    185x10x1
    225x10x1
    275x8x1
    295x3x1
    315x0x1 - fucker was 6" off the floor and I couldn't get out of the hole!
    245x8x1
    225x5x1

    *Wtf, honestly...

    1 arm rows -
    70x12x3
    *Each arm

    Seated cable rows -
    100x15x1
    150x12x1
    200x10x1

    *Did it the old skool Arnold way with the deep forward lean to stretch!

    Shrugs -
    225x15x3
    *Bet I'll be sore tomorrow, since I put these away awhile back...

    Thoughts: Today wasn't too bad actually. Just pissed on my deadlifts. I'm seriously starting to doubt myself, but aside from diet, I may have to humble myself as well and go back down a bit before I can go up. My form out of the hole on deadlifts I think is my problem area, but not sure what I can do to really correct it. When I did them off the pins, a few inches from where they were at today, it was much easier. So apparently I have a 4-6" problem area that needs solving......On another note, Controlled Labs products are definately keeping me focused, and motivated even though my numbers aren't where I want them. Almost outta Green Mag so I need to re-up an order and maybe add some L-Glutamine too it too.....

    Yeah, I need to figure my problem area on that lift. I use to hit it (pre-3 week vacation that is) for 3-5 reps but now can't for shit off the floor. Off the pins and on a step, I can easily do it. Ugh!

    Day 16 - Tack on another day!


    Overview: Got up today and I was actually only going to go in, talk to the head Fitness person for a few and do some cardio. What happens? Chest day! Spur of the moment since my lifting partner was there I had to lift. Force of nature IMO. However, tried to stay light and good form since I did chest like 2-3 days ago.

    Cardio -
    Non-existant today....

    Flat Bench Smith Press -
    (going off what standard would be since I don't know what weight the Smith's bar is rated for. I think 25 to be honest....)
    135x12x1
    155x12x1
    175x12x1
    195x10x1
    215x8x1
    235x8x1
    195x8x1
    155x6x1
    135x6x1

    *Actually dig this on occassion since it allows me a better stretch in my chest close to my front delts and also I can put the line of travel exactly where I want it to be.

    DB Flyes 45 degree incline bench -
    30x12x2
    35x10x2


    Close Grip Bench Smith Press -
    135x10x2
    155x8x2


    Thoughts: Got into the gym late, as again, I wasn't anticipating doing any lifting. Not upset with the workout as it felt good to not have to try and lift to max on everything but instead going nice and easy. White Flood, Orange Triad and Blue Up were once again there to save the day! Almost out of Green Mag.....I think I need a "tester" tub sent ASAP of that new flavor!
    Oh, and definately digging the White Flood "old" flavor. I've gotten so attached to that it's ridiculous. Well, on tap for tomorrow, SQUATS!

    Orange Triad - 10/10 - Always great energy, joints feeling great!

    White Flood - 10/10 - Great taste, mad energy, obscene focus!

    Blue Up - 10/10 - Nothing like pounding out a set and saying, "Fuck it, I need more weight!"

    My guess is you'll nail it next time (and then some ?)

    Do you do speed deads at all (will go back through log as well)

    Well, I pulled 295x3 from the floor a few days back and 335x5 off the pins before that. I don't do speed deads, as I'm not familiar with them really. I try to keep it controlled and steady more than anything. I'll have to look into that.

    Day 17 - Time to blast them legs!


    Overview: Well, coming to the completion of my bottle of Orange Triad here soon. I think I'm about 1/4 from finishing, or there abouts. I have to give it to Controlled Labs. This is truly a great product. Before Orange Triad, I didn't put too much thought into things like Glucosamine for my joints. I thought it was kind of bullshit to be honest. However, today was the definate truth bearing event that says yes, this shit really does work and really does help! Follow with and I'll explain....

    A long time ago in a land far far away....whoops, wrong story. Anyways, if you search for a "discussion" between myself and a fellow named Lancer here, the jist of it was, I avoided squats due to the pain it caused me and I would do most everything in place of it. However, I was actually able to do, for the very first time with no pain or even popping whatsoever, squats both free and smith as well as front squats. I was amazed. And this wasn't just a 3-6 inch drop, this was almost ass to ground squats, the deep deep squats and I felt perfect. Enough with boring you....


    Cardio -
    1/4 mile jog following the workout.
    *I felt like I was Forest Gump or something since my legs were toast and I went to run and almost fell on my face after like 3 steps.


    Squats -
    135x12x1
    155x12x1
    225x12x1
    275x10x1
    315x5x1
    225x10x1
    155x8x1

    *Felt DAMN good.

    Front Squats -
    135x10x2
    155x10x2

    *Still getting use to this. I don't have a broad chest so the load is almost solely on my shoulders and actually painful after about 5 reps.

    Leg Press -
    485x12x3
    *Cake.

    Laying Leg Curls -
    135x8x3
    *Literally kicked my ass. Hammies still sore from the SLDL a few days back.

    Leg Extension -
    135x12x3
    *Again, cake.


    Thoughts: Well, I need for one, to get my hamstrings to be stronger. I think this has led to low back problems since my quads are stronger and pull my pelvis out of alignment a bit. It has improved though since I began lifting as deadlifts no longer leave me hurting for days after. I don't know if it was my partner hyping me up, my Thunder Cats t-shirt or the Controlled Labs products, but I felt damn good today lifting and was doing so on an empty stomach for the first time in a while. I know however, I'm going to be hurting come tomorrow. I should really lift at my capacity, but I love to push myself to lift at/near my partners when I can keep up with his weights. This was a light day for him, since he wants to do deads tomorrow, so if I can roll out, so am I. Woot!
