    Possibly, I felt it there more too. I was also doing box squats like that with bands, was a total killer.

    Default Days 56 & 57

    August 27 & 28, 2006

    Rest days!!! .... didn't weigh myself .... took it easy, kept calories in check, and just rested .... back and hams were feeling really worked from the workout a few days ago, so I felt taking some time off was needed ....dosage was 1/2 scoop of GMag in the morning, and took regular Blue Up and White Blood dosages

    I had really good form on the preachers, which is why the reps were lower than usual ... burned me out doing those, but was happy to get 100lbs up as many times as I did

    Default Review

    Summin' It All Up

    Overall, I give CL's Green MAGnitude a stellar review .... taste is great, mixability is perfect (completely disolves), and it produces results. I've added GMag as a staple to my supplementation and can't wait to break into the next tub tomorrow morning.

    If my bodyfat was less, there would have been some better vascularity. I noticed that I could see nearly every vein in my chest after press days trying to break through. Maybe after a cut I'll see it happen. Definitely saw a lot of it on my arms, where there isn't much fat. Pumps were good, and lasted for a while .... at least for me they did. The one thing I noticed is that my strength kept going up. Every week I was attacking the weights and breaking records from the week before. Only a few of my exercises plateaued (sp?) in weight by the end of this log, and most of those were shoulder exercises which I've been having some recent problems with.

    I would recommend this product to anyone who is looking for a staple creatine product and would prefer powder over a pill. Here are the final numbers for me to post. I'll add final pictures later. Thanks again, Controlled Labs and I hope the readers of this log have found it useful in their decision to buy this product or not.
