    Where I Have Been

    Once I finished highschool, I found myself without an organized sport to play for the first time. I was looking to fill the void when I went to college and I decided to get into bodybuilding seriously. I had lifted weights in the past, but it was more focused on training for various sports. Once college started, I really got serious about it and have spent the past 2 years really focusing on intense training and a very clean diet.

    Where I Am Going

    Right now, clean bulking is where its at for me. I am focusing on putting on size, but keeping the gains as lean as possible. My goal is to get up to 200lbs. Once I am there, mirror appearance will determine whether it is time to cut down a little, or continue adding some size. My diet is very strict and calculated. This allows me to really control my weight gain and help keep the fat gains to a minimum (although it really is nearly impossible to not put on any fat while bulking). Bodybuilding competitions may be something I pursue down the road, but right now I need to put on some more size and see where it goes from there.

    Diet

    As mentioned above, I keep a very strict and calculated diet. Everything I put in my body is intended to get me closer to reaching my goal. I take in 3300 calories each training day following a 40carbs/40protein/20fats macro breakdown. On my off days, I consume 3000 calories on Saturday and 2950 on Sunday. My daily intake comes from chicken, tuna, turkey breast, fish fillets, veggies, oats, whole grain bread, whole grain english muffins, multi-grain wraps, fat free cheese, cottage cheese, skim milk, peanut butter, and brown rice.

    Current Supplements

    NOW EcoGreen
    Bulk Beta Alanine
    ON Gold Standard Whey
    Bulk Waxy Maize Starch
    Controlled Labs Purple Wraath
    Contolled Labs Green Mag Electric Lemonade
    **I am keeping all of my current supplementation and training the same to ensure that the only variable in my routine is the Green Mag. This will allow me to truly evaluate its effectiveness. I will keep my dosages on everything consistent and maintain those dosages throughout the log.

    Supplement History

    My supplementation history consists mostly of the basics. I have used Whey and a Multi for a pretty long time and creatine for about a year. I have experimented with various NO/stim preworkout products in the past as well, however, I recently decided that I was no longer going to use these types of products. I dont want to become reliant on stims to get me through my workouts, and NO just wasnt for me. Outside of the basics, creatine and amino acid cocktails are where I get an edge for my workouts. Since I dont use very many supplements, it is very easy for me to assess how well a specific product works for me.

    Training Protocol

    I am currently following a single bodypart split that has been yielding very good results. My split is as follows:

    Monday: Chest
    Tuesday: Back
    Wednesday: Shoulders
    Thursday: Legs
    Friday: Arms
    Saturday: Rest
    Sunday: Rest
    *I work abs 2 or 3 times a week, depending on how they feel

    Current Stats

    Weight: 181.5.bs
    Height: 5'10"
    Arms: 14.875"
    Chest: 40.375"
    Shoulders: 46.5"
    Waist: 31.5"
    Calves: 15"
    Thighs: 23.25"
    Forearms: 12.625"
    Neck: 15.5"
    *I do not take bodyfat measurements because I honestly dont feel that knowing the number makes a big difference. As long as I am happy with what I see in the mirror, it doesnt matter to me whether that is 8% or 12%. I will note if I see a difference as far as bodyfat and my waist measurement should give an indication.

    Finally, I would like to thank everyone at Controlled Labs for giving me this awsome oppurtunity. I would also like thank Pt for hooking me up with the awsome banner.

    Taste Review/Initial Impressions

    Taste: I figured I would dive right into what everyone is most interested in, the taste. Simply put, AMAZING. This is without a doubt the best supplement I have ever tasted. There aren't even very many drinks that I thought tasted better then the Electric Lemonade. The lemonade flavor is very authentic. In fact, this stuff beats out Country Time Lemonade by a long shot. When I used to drink Country Time Lemonade, I always found it to have a strange tartness that caused a weird feeling in the back of my throat. With Mag, no such tartness exists. It is simply smooth and delicious. Now for the ultimate test, how does it stand up next to the apple Green Mag flavor. Both flavors are great, however, I must give the edge to the new Electric Lemonade flavor. Like I said, it is my favorite tasting supplement now and something I would easily drink for taste alone.
    Rating: 10/10 (I have never rated anything a 10 before)

    Mixability: Mixability was very good. I used a glass and mixed a scoop in 8oz of water. I stirred for 20 seconds with a knife. Most of the powder dissolved nearly instantly. After the 20 seconds of stirring, I only found 2 or 3 little white specks in the bottom of the cup. No issue here at all.
    Rating: 9/10

    Ingredients: No complaints at all when looking at the ingredient profile. Each serving contains a solid 5 grams of creatine (perfect amount for a daily dose). I like the combination of MCC and DiCreM. I also really like the inclusion of Tyrosine. Taurine is a nice addition as well. This is a very solid creatine based product IMO.
    Rating: 9/10

    Price: $40 for 80 servings is all that you need to know. Green Mag is one of the most cost effective products you can buy. At $0.50 per serving, with the addition of taurine, tyrosine, and betaine anhydrous, plus a solid 5 grams of creatine, it really is an excellent deal.
    Rating: 9/10

    Some Other Thoughts:
    *I always measure out the serving sizes on my scale to check the accuracy of scoops when I get a new supplement. I took a scoop of Mag and then flattened it across the top with the back of a knife. It measured out at just under 11 grams, so the scoop accuracy is pretty much right on.
    *One other thing I thought I would mention, it is very interesting to be drinking something that tastes exactly like lemonade, but is green, haha. Its just something different.

    Sunday Rest Day

    I took my second serving of Green Mag this morning before breakfast and was still very impressed by the flavor. This stuff really tastes awsome. Today will be a solid rest day. Nothing but relaxing, eating, and recovery. I ended up getting some unplanned cardio yesterday with some sand volleyball. It got pretty intense and I worked up a good sweat. Looking forward to getting back in the gym tomorrow. Should be a solid chest day.

    Ab Workout

    Workout Thoughts: Decent workout overall today, but nothing exceptional. I wasnt completly thrilled with my Incline Bench Press, but I was forced to use a different bench then I normally use, and it just felt off. I think this played a role as I wasnt able to get as many reps on my 2nd and 3rd set as I usually do. I was pretty happy with the rest of my workout though. Had a real good pump in my chest. I got some good ab work in at the end of my session as well. Hoping to see these numbers continue to climb upwards.

    Workout Ratings
    Energy/Focus: 8/10
    *focus was really good, energy was about normal
    Endurance: 7/10
    *nothing out of the ordinary
    Strength: 7/10
    *felt good on Bench, but wasnt happy with Incline
    Workout Overall: 7/10
    *Decent workout, nothing incredible

    Green Mag Thoughts: I obviously cant really expect to see much from Green Mag yet since I have only been dosing for three days now. However, I did feel a nice little boost in focus in the gym. It wasnt anything mindblowing, but it was noticeable and worth noting. Outside of that, it will probably take a little time for Green Mag to build up in my system to really see what it has to offer. I took my dose about 35 minutes before hitting the gym and the taste was still excellent. I actually let my mom and sister both have a really small taste (they didnt want alot because it is "evil creatine", haha) but they both thought the taste was amazing as well. I dont see myself getting tired of the taste like I do with some supplements.

    275lbs 8reps
    315lbs 5reps

    Workout Thoughts:
    I was happy with today's workout. Back strength felt pretty good. I got an extra pullup on both my first and second set compared to last week. I was also able to get an extra rep on my first set of Cable Rows. Outside of that, all my other lifts matched my previous numbers and my overall strength felt pretty good. I was hoping to hit a new PR today on my deadlifts, but I was only able to meet my previous PR at 5reps of 315lbs. I was actually happy with this though, because I tweaked my back a little yesterday bending down to get something out of the freezer (not sure how it happened). It did loosen up a little as the workout went on, but there was definently some soreness. I was happy to get some pretty decent deadlifts in all things considered.

    Workout Ratings
    Energy/Focus: 8/10
    *felt pretty good in both of these aspects
    Endurance: 9/10
    *great endurance, my workout went very very fast
    Strength: 8/10
    *strength felt pretty good all around
    Workout Overall: 8/10
    *Definently an above average workout

    Green Mag Thoughts:
    Havnt been on Green Mag long enough yet to fully experience the benefits, but my strength definently felt pretty good today. Not sure whether I can credit this to Mag or just normal strength increases. Focus again was good. I definently think that Tyrosine being in this formula is a nice addition. Endurance was great as well and I found myslef absolutly flying through my workout. Although my endurance is always good, thanks in part to my Purple Wraath, I definently had a little extra boost today. On a side note, I tried mixing today's serving in a shaker bottle rather then a cup and spoon like I did for my first three servings. I found no difference in mixability, so I think you will be fine mixability wise using whichever method you prefer.

    Ab Workout
    Weighted Knee Ups (3 sets of 15), Ab Crunch Machine (3 sets of 15)

    Workout Thoughts:
    Today's workout was really solid. I started off with the Smith Machine Shoulder Presses. I really like using the Smith Machine because it lets me target my delts without worrying to much about stabilizing the bar. I switch around between these and the barbell variety. I was able to push out an extra rep on my second set, so that was good. I was also happy with my DB Presses. Normally I need to drop down to 55lbs dumbells for my last set of these, but I was able to keep with the 60's and still get 7reps. Both of the raises went really well. I recently switched both of my raises after watching the "Getting Cut With Glass" Shoulder episode. Here is a link to the episode http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/glasscut1.htm. Both of these variations force you to use less weight, but they definently blast your shoulders. I get a burn that I never got using the traditional form on these.

    *endurance was good throughout
    Strength: 8.5/10
    *able to push a little extra out on a few excercises
    Workout Overall: 8.5/10
    *Really solid workout

    Green Mag Thoughts:
    Strength was really good today. Definently felt some extra strength during the workout. Endurance was also very good again. As it has been all week, my focus was right on point. I think this is a combination of a few factors. First, I am driven when I get into the gym and part of it is because I know that I will be logging my workout. This provides some excellent motivation. Second, I had been somewhat in a plateau on my weights recently, so I have really been focusing on trying to push it a little more. The tyrosine in Green Mag could also be giving a little boost. All I know is that my focus has been on point all week and I am very happy with that. Everything taste wise is still awsome as well.

    Workout Thoughts:
    Real good workout today. Strength was great. I felt like I could have pushed out a few extra reps on some of my leg presses. I might bump it up next week. Squats felt pretty decent as well. Felt real good on my Leg Ext and think that I may be able to up the weight a little on those next week as well. Calves were completly exhausted by the end of my workout. I had the usual difficulty walking around after finishing up with my calves. I love leg days because I really feel like I get to use every bit of power that I have. Thrilled with how the workout went today.

    Workout Ratings
    Energy/Focus: 8/10
    *not bad at all in either aspect
    Endurance: 8/10
    *pretty good endurance, although I'm always dead after legs
    Strength: 9/10
    *strength was awsome today
    Workout Overall: 9/10
    *Great workout in terms of strength and intensity

    Green Mag Thoughts:
    Green Mag is really treating me well so far. I felt ridiculously strong in the gym today. I think in part, today was just a really good day, but Mag deserves some of the credit as well. This was the strongest I have felt in awhile. If I feel this good again next week, I will be bumping up some of my weights and reps. Endurance was good today also. I didnt feel completly dead once the workout was done, which has happened in the past on leg days. Considering how good I felt in the gym today, I am not surprised by this. I got some stretching in at the end to try and dim some of the DOMS that always follow leg days. Overall, this felt like one of my better workouts in awhile and definenetly the best of this log so far.

    140lbs 10reps
    150lbs 8reps**
    150lbs 8reps**

    Ab Workout
    Ab Circuit consisting of Weighted Hanging Knee Raises, Weighted Ball Crunches, Hanging Leg Raises, and Weighted Cable Crunches. A circuit consists of going through all 4 excercises (15reps) with no break between them. After completing all four excercises (a circuit), I take a sip of my Purple Wraath, and then go straight into the next circuit. I go through 3 circuits before stopping. These are ridiculous (highly recommended).

    ** - denotes an increase in weight. Right now I am the strongest I have ever been, so anytime I increase weight is a new PR.

    Workout Thoughts: Today was one of the best workouts I have ever had. My strength was incredible as you can tell by how many weight increases (PRs) I had today. I felt so good and was able to bump up the weight on almost everything. On top of that, I was supersetting bis and tris on everything, so I had a huge pump. Focus, intensity, and energy was all through the roof. Since I felt so strong, I was completly driven and motivated to just keep pushing forward. On top of the incredible arm workout, I crushed my abs. I got through 3 full ab circuits without resting and bumped it up to 15 reps on everything. Seriously one of the best workouts I have ever had.

    Workout Ratings
    Energy/Focus: 9.5/10
    *Great in both aspects
    Endurance: 9.5/10
    *Really good endurance, especially since everything was superset
    Strength: 10/10
    *Strength was through the roof today
    Workout Overall: 10/10
    *One of my best workouts ever

    Green Mag Thoughts: If today's workout was any indication, I am expecting to see amazing things from Green Mag. Today, my strength was absolutly ridiculous and Green Mag has to get some credit. Endurance and focus were very good, but strength is really what shinned. Setting a single PR during a workout is a good feeling, but I set a ton today. Then, after fully blasting my arms, I had enough left to get in an amazing ab workout. Really pleased with what I got in today.

    Default 1 Week Measurements



    1 Week Measurment Updates

    Weight: 182.25lbs (+.75lbs)
    Arms: 14.875" (no change)
    Chest: 40.375" (no change)
    Shoulders: 46.75" (+.25")
    Waist: 31.5" (no change)
    Calves: 15" (no change)
    Thighs: 23.5" (+.25")
    Forearms: 12.625" (+.125")
    Neck: 15.5" (no change)

    Measurement Thoughts:
    Pretty good measurements this week. Put on 3/4lbs with no waist gain. Its always good to put on some quality size without gaining in the midsection. Good growth on my shoulders and thighs. Arms also were slightly larger, but not quite at 15" yet. Hopefully by next week they will be. It looks like everything is still on track diet and training wise, based on this weeks results.

    Sunday Rest Day

    Woke up and took my serving of Green Mag (tasted great as usual), then downed a protein shake and cooked up some oats. Today will be a solid rest and recovery day. Yes they are essential, but sometime I wish they weren't. Honestly wish I could just attack the weights everyday. Nothing else to report. Looking forward to hitting chest tomorrow.

    Workout Thoughts: Good chest workout. Still stuck on both my barbell Bench and Incline press though. However, I was able to set a new PR on my dumbell inclines. I felt strong on my first two sets of them (normally I can only get 7 reps, but today I got 8 on both of them) so I decided to bump up the weight and was able to push out 5 reps of 70lbs on my last set. I dont normally do both DB Inclines and Flats in the same workout because I find that my strength suffers on whichever I do second. However, I decided to throw in the flats after the inclines and still managed to get some decent work. Had I done them first, I would have pushed more weight, but I was reasonably happy with what I got, all things considered. I am expecting some decent chest soreness tomorrow, but we will have to see.

    *Pretty good workout

    Green Mag Thoughts: Set a new PR today, so that always is the sign of a good workout. However, I still am somewhat caught in a BB bench and incline plateau. Hopefully Green Mag can help me break through this plateau in the next few weeks. Chest was very pumped today, especially after the dropset of dips that I finished my chest off with. Got in some pretty good ab work at the end of my training session also. Still looking forward to my daily glass of Electric Lemonade as well.

    Workout Thoughts:
    Another very good workout. I set two new PR's today. One on Bent Over Barbell Rows and the other on DEADLIFTS(just for you 5-6[no homo ]). I could not believe how strong I felt on my Barbell Rows to kick off the workout. Normally I can only get 10 at 150lbs which I did for my final set. However, today I did 12 for my second set, and then was able to bump up the weight to 155lbs and still get 10reps. Lat Pulldowns went about as expected and Cable Rows went pretty well. Today was the first time I have done DB Rows in a real long time, so I didnt go extremly heavy and was more worried about nailing down the form on them. This was probably the most weight I have ever done with them, but thats because I havnt done them in so long (when I was much weaker). I should be able to bump up the weight next time I do them. Then there were deadlifts. I knew I was going to hit 6 reps at 315lbs after my very first rep at 275lbs. I was able to get 9 reps on that first set (one extra from last week). When it came time for my final set at 315lbs, I tore through the first 5 and then powered through the 6th. It felt really good.

    Green Mag Thoughts:
    My strength continues to improve. I have already set a pretty fair amount of PR's in the short time since starting Green Mag. Everything is going very well in the gym. I have had great focus pretty much everyday of this log and endurance has been awsome as well (Purple Wraath gets some of the credit in that aspect). I have been very happy with the results I have been getting already and hope they continue. Hoping to see more improved numbers during tomorrow's shoulder workout.

    Workout Thoughts:
    My usual gym was closed for the holiday, however, another gym near my house was open. I didnt increase weight on anything today, but I still felt like I had a pretty good workout. The benches at this gym, that I used for my DB Presses and Seated Raises felt really weird and definently played a role in not being able to increase weight on those excercises. The benches were extremly low to the ground and so my knees were really high and I didnt feel like I could get a good base with my feet. There was no way to adjust the bench height either. I hated them, but thats why I dont usually go to this gym. It at least felt good to be able to get a workout in today, so I cant complain too much. I also think that I will be able to increase some weight on a few things next week. Despite the change of scenery, I still felt like I got a pretty solid workout in, all things considered.

    Green Mag Thoughts:
    I didnt increase weight or reps on anything today, but my strength still felt pretty good. I am pretty sure I will be able to increase weight on a few things, or at least reps, once I get back into my own gym next week. Endurance and focus were pretty solid today. It wasnt my best workout of the log, but it wasnt terrible. Hopefully I can really get back into it tomorrow with a strong leg day.
