    Workout Rating: 1000000000000/10

    Ramblings and Thoughts:

    - Finally hit 185 lbs x 5, actually 6, on Incline BP! 200 lbs here I come

    - Did some squats, 135 lbs x 10, after the workout to see how my hammie felt. There was no pain in it. This is a good thing. Prolly give it a week or two to let it rest before I start back into deads and squats again

    - Thanks to LSU for the idea of decline pull overs

    - Thinking of training arms twice a week. Bis on back day, and tris on chest day. Both these days will be lighter weight, and higher reps. Then a day commited to arms, which I will go a bit heavier.

    - Enjoying band work also

    - Changed around my pre-workout meal scheme a bit. I start the morning off with a "Wala shake". Then have a whole food meal an hour later

    - Didn't get a mental crash in the middle of the workout. In fact, I still wanted to keep going. Perhaps this is due to the Wala shake

    - Spider curls, ftw~

    - I'm very excited for the push/pull days and leg day! Hoping to start it on Wed

    Ramblings and Thoughts:

    Attention Savage, I have a story that rivals your old man story

    - Story goes like this. I had to take a piss, so I do my thing and go wash my hands. And in my gym, there is two mirrors facing each other, on opposite walls. So while I'm washing my hands I look up and see there's a guy in a towel and I catch him looking at me. Then he quickly looks away. So I'm like, whatever. Then a few seconds later I up look again, and all the sudden he is buck naked, bending over and rubbing lotion on his legs. I was like, wtf as I cringe and shudder, and quickly got out of there.

    - i forgot the epic awesomeness of farmer's walks.

    - Enjoying band work also

    - Again, not crash. Perhaps due to a wala shake?

    - Two new pet peeves for me: 1) People using a flat bench to do leg raises on. Like wtf people. 2) People who walk in and start doing pull-ups while your resting at a cable station.

    Final Review

    First off, thank you to everyone who followed my log. Also, thank you to Controlled Labs for letting me run this log. I really appreciate it.

    Ingredients: CL has def a really nice blend here. Perhaps the first of its kind, I would dare to say. It brings together BCAAs, to help with recovery and protein synthesis post workout; waxy maize starch, a new kind of PWO carb that has been getting a lot of attention as of late; An insulin manipulator, which is a good thing! (I can go into detail, but I'm a geek and will go into too much detail); and muscle glycogen replenisher, so you're ready to hit the weights again next workout! Overall, a very solid blend

    Taste: First off, this product tasted like shit. I'm not going to lie. I used three scoops of water and 32 oz of cold water. After some changing around the ratios, and listening to suggestions, 2 scoops of GFH and 32 oz of water seemed to be ideal for me.

    Mixability: This really comes down to personal opinion. At 32 oz of water and 3 scoops of GFH, the mixability was pretty bad, at least for me. I had to take a blender to it to mix it up properly. However, with 32 oz of water and 2 scoops of GFH, the mixing was a lot easier and you could do it in a water bottle.

    Texture: Comes down to, again, the ratios you go for. More water and less GFH was the best for me.


    Will I use it again?: Few factors to consider here. GFH is a more expensive alternative to the standard PWO shake. Especially when it's 20 servings, if you use three scoops. However, if you use 2 scoops instead of three, the duration of a tub goes up, obviously. One thing I really did like about GFH is that I didn't crash after a workout. I'm notorious for crashing after a workout, and being a mental write-off for a good three to four hours afterwards. So if I had the cash, I would use this product again, without question. If I`m poor as hell, I`ll will, sadly, have to resort to good ol`dextrose and whey.
