A little why I am doing this log:
Well, Tank asked me to do this log because I seemed skeptical of the amount of hype Controlled Labs get on here. I think they are a great company, I am seriously curious what all this hype is all about. I have only tried samples of CL products so this should be interesting. I am cutting for a show so calories are gonna be getting lower and I am gonna be tired all day and need to keep as much muscle as possible. I have tried just about every type of creatine out there(besides Size on and MAN) and really have gotten the best results from simple monohydrate. I am curious how Green Mag will stand up and if I will see any difference from all the other creatines I have tried. I also have taken bulk bcaas, leucine, and EAA pills before. I am curious if Purple Wraath will deliver better results than all these. I am going to be as objective as possible in this log. I am excited for this.
How will I be gaging the effectiveness of products:
Amount of strength kept while cutting
Stamina in the gym
The new Lemonade taste
Amount of muscle saved while cutting
