    Great looking log! Im really looking forward to trying out GM when it arrives.

    Can I just ask one question, im not too knowledgable with bodybuilding programs, but why is it that when you work quads and hams, that they are the 2nd body part worked out for the day? I would imagine that the blood flow and hormone release from going heavy first with legs, working your bodies bigger and stronger muscles, could even help raise the quality of work for the other body part you are training that day?

    my old routine had Monday entirely dedicated to legs ... this is a new routine that I got from powerbuilt over at bb.com ... just using this to switch things up for the next few months ... will probably go back to dedicating a day to legs around the winter season

    Default Day 2 - Off

    Was out really late for a wedding last night, and my hams are killing me from the workout yesterday ... decided it best to not do any cardio and just hydrate and let my legs rest ... took one scoop with cold water ... didn't feel as lazy today as I usually do after a wedding .... contributing that to the GM

    can't wait for chest and calves tomorrow

    Default Day 3 - Training

    I'll be posting my diet for the day later this evening, but wanted to go ahead and log my numbers from my workout this morning.

    Chest/Calves

    Flat Bench DB Press
    70's x 10
    75's x 8
    80's x 6
    85's x 6

    Incline DB Press
    65's x 8
    65's x 8
    70's x 8

    Flat DB Flyes
    35's x 10
    35's x 10
    40's x 10 (up 5lbs. from last week)

    Standing Calf Raises
    Dropset 3 x 15 x 180/120/60

    lots of sweat during this workout ... just like Saturday's workout ... lots of energy ... i'm usually burned out by the time I finish my last set on the second DB Press exercise, and this morning I went up on my last set of Flyes ... I couldn't believe the energy that I still had

    nothing changed in my supplementation other than the addition of Green MAGnitude ... mixed it up with 2 scoops of PW that I had let chill overnight and the taste was great ... i'll be mixing it up this way from now on ....

    didn't sleep that well lastnight and thought that this morning's workout wasn't going to be very productive .... quite the opposite

    Default Day 3 - Diet

    Here's the overall breakdown of my caloric intake for the day. Not very happy with the way I ate today. I'll make some adjustments for tomorrow.

    Attachment 171

    I forgot to mention that I weighed in at 195lbs this morning ... not sure how accurate that measurement was but it means I've put on 5lbs in less than 3 days ...

    Default Day 4 - Supplementation Update

    After getting some feedback from Tank, I'm going to be adding melatonin (3mg) and White Blood (3 pills) to my stack at night ....

    this is due to some increased stress at the office and the lack of sleep has been building up for a few weeks now ... this in no way is being contributed to Green MAGnitude since this was happening prior to the start of me taking it

    i woke up this morning and hit a wall in the gym .... no energy, no desire to be there, kept yawning, couldn't wait to get back home and take a power nap before getting ready for work ... completely sucked ... skipped abs

    i'll be posting my training and diet information for the day later tonight, but wanted to notify anyone subscribed that the supplementation will change a bit starting tonight 6/27/06)

    amazingly, I still made it through my bicep and forearm workout and the pumps were great ... noticed a lot of vascularity in the arms for the first time ... my wife even commented on how much fuller I look

    Biceps/Forearms/Abs

    Preacher Curls
    75 x 10
    75 x 8
    75 x 6
    75 x 6

    Alt Seated Hammer Curls
    35's x 8
    35's x 8
    40's x 8

    3 x 25's x 8

    DB Forearm Curls

    Diet was about the same as yesterday .... need to do some shopping and restock the fridge and pantry

    Attachment 183

    Getting ready for bed and have a 3mg pill of melatonin and 3 WB pills waiting for me ... hoping for a big change in how I feel tomorrow

    Default Day 5 - Training

    Just got home from my workout ... what a difference a good night of sleep will do for a person (the addition of melatonin and WB pm has already made a difference after the first dose) .... energy levels were above normal today .... lots of sweat, which I am contributing as a side to Green MAG - but it's a good sweat and not comparable to the constant sweating that I get from thermogenics

    weighed in this morning at 193.6lbs ... up 0.2lbs from yesterday ... I've been slacking on cardio, but will get back into it in a couple more days (Hams are still really tight from the workout last Friday 6/23) and I expect my weight to drop a little bit

    not as much vascularity as I noticed yesterday, but I'm still looking bigger / more full

    Shoulders / Traps

    Overhead DB Press
    45's x 10
    45's x 8
    50's x 6 (up 5lbs from last week)
    55's x 6 (up 5lbs from last week)

    Leaning Side Laterals
    20's x 8
    25's x 8 (up 5lbs from last week)
    25's x 6 (up 5lbs from last week, but 2 reps short from last week)

    Alt Front DB Raises
    25's x 8
    25's x 8
    25's x 8
    (usually do 10 reps per set, but the front delts were on fire today)

    Bent-over DB Laterals
    20's x 10
    20's x 10
    25's x 10 (up 5lbs from last week)

    Behind Back BB Shrugs
    155 x 15 (up 5lbs from last week)
    155 x 15
    155 x 15
    165 x 15 (up 10lbs from last week)

    based on what I've seen over these 5 days, I can safely say that this stuff works ... at least for me, and I'm stoked that I already have a second tub on hand when the tester tub runs out

    Default Day 5 - Diet

    So I'm slowing increasing my calories, and I'm realizing that getting more carbs in my diet is becoming a real pain ... still averaging around the 33/33/33 for my macros which isn't ideal for me, but I'll keep working on it

    Attachment 205

    Got a really good sleep .... WB and melatonin are really paying off for me .... dreams are becoming a bit more vivid .... make sure to have water by the bed because when I wake up I'm really thirsty ... read that others have experienced this too from taking WB at night

    Great workout today ... weighed in at 193.8lbs - up 0.2lbs from yesterday ... again I'll mention that there was a lot of sweating ... strength was good ... felt a great pump in my quads after doing squats ... never felt that before, thought it was pretty cool

    Green MAGnitude is certainly having a positive effect on my workouts

    Triceps / Quads

    Weighted Dips
    bodyweight x 10
    +45 x 8
    +55 x 8 (up 10lbs and 2 reps)

    Pushdowns
    100 x 10 (felt a little pull in my right tricep so dropped the weight a bit)
    80 x 8
    80 x 6
    90 x 6

    Bench Dips
    +45 x 10
    +80 x 10 (new PR)
    +80 x 10

    BB Squats (didn't go too heavy on these this week)
    185 x 10

    115 x 10

    BB Lunges
    (took longer breaks during squats and was short on time ... didn't get to these today, but the quads still got a lot of good stimulation)

    thanks, asianbabe

    going for 35/45/20 P/C/F ... I've just been feeling so full lately that I literally want to puke when I try to eat more .... instead of my usual protein shake, I brought in a cup of raw oats ... will just add water maul that junk for my meal later in the day ... maybe add a handful of almonds...


    yeah, the GM is really having a big effect .... can't wait to see what happens in a few weeks when I start adding GB post workout in place of bulk cee

    agreed. I like 5 green bulge pre and 1/2 to 2/3 scoop of gm post. but you can go either way. the gm taste is a bit of a treat for a good workout.

    Default Day 6 - Diet

    I was in meetings all day at work and barely had time to grab meals in between today ... so I ate like a maniac when I got back from grocery shopping ... macro breakdown didn't change much, but hoping tomorrow will be better as most of the office and our clients are out of town for early vacation ... off to bed after posting this

    yea pu is telling people gb post and gm pre..pssht.. i think hes been in the black hole too much.. possibly the beta batches werent fully non-psychadelic?!


    green bulge - HyperCre Complex: 3450mg
    Magnesium creatine chelate, creatine ethyl ester hcl, betaine anhydrous, taurine ethyl ester di-HCI, arginine ethyl ester di-hci, glycocyamine, k-rala, 4-hydroxyisoleucine (20%)

    green mag -
    Magnesium Creatine Chelate 2500mg
    Dicreatine Malate 2500mg
    Betaine Anhydrous 2000mg
    L-Taurine 2000mg
    L-Tyrosine 500mg


    i was going to compare creatine amounts..but GB has the complex formula..

    im guessing GB has more creatine per serving though?! which is why i would take it pre.. not much logic behind that really tho.. lol
