    So we took yesterday as another day off. No real reason behind it other than I had to work late again and we were a little too tired to go to the gym. I hate going when I'm not "all there" it just sets me up for a bad workout and I didn't want to ruin how this week has been going. Instead we'll go today after I get off from working OT again, man I building up some crazy amounts of OT, I have 26.25 hours OT on my next cheque and after this weekend I'll have 40 hours OT on the cheque following that. Too bad the money is already spent (paying off credit cards and our vacation) but at least we'll be back to even. Overtime FTW!!!

    As far as my cutting down to 220 is going , it's a slow and steady pace. I didn't really lose much this week but both me and ~DD~ have noticed my waist tightening up/shrinking, so even though I might not have lost much actually weight this week at least the mirror is showing improvement which is the real goal. As long as I keep it going like I have I think that I will be able to eventually reach my goal. I even created an Excel spreadsheet to track my weight loss, BF%, etc from week to week. So at least I'm back in the right mindset to get this completed.

    Default Can I be charged for physically abusing my legs???

    The title says it all again, and yesterday's rest was definitely worth it. Today's workout was awesome, all the way through to the cardio at the end. It was high intensity, I can actually "feel" the muscle fibers that were worked and I was able to keep the pace up throughout.

    Deadlifts: 20@135, 10@225, 10@315, 5@365, 5@415 - gym was dead so I could use every last weight if I wanted and I was damn close.

    Smith Machine Front Squats: 10@135, 10@165, 10@185 - these were a whole lot harder than last time due to going heavier on deads, but I went as heavy as I could while maintaining correct form, my "teardrops" are crying.

    Lying Hamstring Curls ss w/ Stiff-legged Deadlifts: 10@135/12@135, 11@125/11@185, 12@115/10@205 - went heavier on the stiffs to get a good stretch.

    Upright Calf Press ss w/ Sled Calf Press: 20@300/20@400 x 3 sets - both machines were maxed out and they're not the type that I can add any extra weight on so I'm going to start experimenting more with rep speeds and unilateral training.

    Cardio: 20 mins on the reincumbant bike, hill setting, level 4 - It was just warm enough in the gym that I sweated like a fat kid running up stairs but I love when cardio is like that, I feel like my body is totally cleansed afterwards.

    Preworkout supps:
    1 Sesaglow
    2 Red Acid
    1 Scoop EL Green MAG

    During Workout:
    Water

    Post-Workout supps:
    Chicken Stir-fry - chicken breast, vegetables and a little teriyaki sauce - sauteed to perfection. Mmmmmm.....I'm drooling a little bit just thinking about it again. I might have to go finish the leftovers before the night is over.

    Default Final Thoughts/Review

    SO it's about time for my final thoughts/review on this product...... without any further ado.........

    Controlled Labs has a real winner here. During a time when companies are mass producing "all-in-ones" that never really deliver it is nice and refreshing to see a company put out a simple product that just performs as it should.

    Mixability: 9/10
    taste: 10/10
    Performance: 10/10
    Recovery: 10/10

    Overall: 9.75/10


    Electric Lemonade Green MAGnitude (IMO) is one of the best creatine products (if not THE BEST) that I have ever tried. GM is easily mixable in a shaker cup with water, a couple times I did experience some powder settling at the bottom of the bottle but it was very easily rememdied by adding a little more water which wiped out the issue completely, I was even able to completely dissolve GM in a small glass w/ water and just mixing it with a spoon, which is usually pretty rare. The product is possibly the best tasting supplement I have ever tasted. It' a refreshing product that would be hard to get tired of, I was actually looking forward to my GM each day, even on my off days. I believe that EL GM even tastes better than the original Apple flavor. As for performance, I took GM mostly pre-workout, I found that on days that I took it post, or didn't take it at all I was feeling sluggish and a little dehydrated (possibly due to high heat). However, when taking GM pre-workout I always had the energy to do my sets and was able to maintain hydration levels (no change in water consumption, and there were many days that the heat and humidity were just as high.) Whether or not this was just "placebo effect" or not is a non-issue because I "felt" (subjective) better when taking the product than when I didn't take the product, as for numbers I was able to maintain or improve my strength levels in all my lifts even while dropping close to 15 pounds. This was one of the most important issues when taking this creatine, to be able to lift just as hard and heavy while still losing weight. I have always seen a directly correlation between my weight and my lifts, when one goes up so does the other and vice versa, so when I can reverse this relationship, ie. weight loss = strength increase, it makes the product responsible for the change valuable to me (IMO). Improved recovery was also noted during this log, there was less soreness and less random cramping (I am assuming this is a result of the improved hydration), for example, previous to taking GM it would take me 3-4 days to recover from legs, while on GM it would only take 2-3 days. 1 day may not sound like that much but it makes a big difference, especially if you are doing legs twice a week. Finally, the price per serving for Green MAGnitude is outstanding, it's rare to see a product priced that low for that many servings, just another top notch aspect of this product.

    In closing I just want to reiterate that (IMHO) this product is outstanding!!! I will definitely be purchasing this product again, and that is the true sign of the quality of the supplement, if you get repeat consumers. A big thank you goes out to Controlled Labs and to Pu12en12g for allowing us to test and log this new flavor. We hope to be able to work with you again in the future. As well thanks to all those who stopped by during this log as you are what makes a log what it is, it was greatly appreciated!
