This is my 2nd run with Blue Gene. I ran a sponsered log bg log a little less than a year ago and really enjoyed it (thanks again PT). This time the log is unsponsered but I am hoping to get similar results from BG (see below post for last years final review). The cycle will be 60 days (two bottles).

I am 29 years old and living in DC. I have been lifting seriously for around 3-4 years. Before that I lifted mainly for basketball purposes but now that I am out of school my bball days are pretty much behind me, I lift mainly to look/feel good.
I have no desire to ever step on stage and compete in a bodybuilding competition. I have tremendious respect for those that choose to compete but it is not something that I wish to do. However, simply because I don't want to compete, does not mean I am not serious about lifting/dieting. I want to live a long healthy life and while somethings in terms of health are out of my control, lifting and eating are two areas that I can control and hopefully can help tip my life in a healthier direction. Basically I want to be in better shape than I was yesterday.
Also I plan on doing some races this summer. Nothing too serious, 5ks or 10ks and hopefully the warrior dash (google it if you've never heard of it, it looks badass). I'm def not a runner and will not be trying to win these races, merely just get a good workout and see if I can beat my own personal best times. As of right now I have never competed in a race.
WHAT I HOPE TO GAIN FROM BLUE GENE
Basically I hope to get what I got last time out of BG. Here is what I expected last time (copied and pasted right from the log), and I feel the supp delievered. Hence, why I'm using the product a second, this time footing the bill myself.
Being that I probably will never compete in a bodybuilding comp, I don't "bulk" or "cut" in a typical bodybuilder fashion. I am bascially in a 24/7, 365 day a year recomp. I may try and shave off or add on a couple pounds here and there but I don't like the way I feel when I bulk or cut so I have stopped doing both and probably will never do either one again in my life. My goal is to constantly gain muscle and lose fat (yes, it is possible to do both at once despite what you have heard). Since I started lifting I have gone from 165lbs to 185lbs all while staying at 9% bf.
I change up my workouts every two-three weeks or so. For the first part of the log it may look like a typical bodybuilder workout, ie doing one muscle group a day. However, throughout the log I will mix in circut training, drop set workouts, german volume training, full upper body/lower body workouts and some other stuff throught the 60 day log.
I also do cardio 3-4 times a week. It will be a variety of different cardio. Although it will mostly involve running on a treadmill it will also include tennis, basketball, elliptical, and swimming.
Lastly, I stick to the basics in my logs. Although I've been a member at bb.com for sometime I still do not know how to jazz up the logs with pictures or videos or anything cool like that. So if you readers feel like throwing up an inspirational photo or two be my guest.
