it will be difficult to break PR because of the pump you obtain. I still progressively increase in weight while taking condense

I finally got my hands on this stuff and decided to hit arms to really gauge the pump. Lets just say I was half way through my warm up and I thought my arms were going to explode! Veins were sticking out and my focus was all about lifting more. I'm not a fan of pre work out supps, especially because I hate the stim feeling, condense has just enough to give you a boost if your tired which is what I like. No nausea or stimmed out feelings. Truly amazing pump with this product. Try apple crisp it's delicious.My muscles are pharmaceutically enhanced.

Tried the 1 scoop sample pack Wednesday morning chest+tri and I had the beta alanine tingles almost to where I didn't like it. It wasn't overpowerful from a stim point of view, just those face tingles. Perfect stim wise for a 530 AM workout. Had a great workout though, weight increase for the same # of reps as the week before on some lifts. And if the weight stayed the same I increased a rep or two. Chest was more pumped with heavy incline db bench than ever before. The real test comes next week when I don't take it again. Ill probably end up snagging a tub of this stuff in the future.Current Unsponsored XGELS log

Just finishing up my first tub. Awesome product - great pump, focus, and endurance. I definitely like how fast it kicks in as well. I bought the apple flavor and am not a big fan of it. But then again I'm not buying this stuff for the taste. It works real well so that's all I care about.

Condense is the real deal. The stuff works and works damn well. This might be one of the best pump products I have ever used. What I like is that this product delivers on its claims...at least from my limited use thus far.
My endurance, strength, explosiveness, etc were greatly enhanced performance wise and the best part is that post-workout the pump lasts several hours afterward.
This is a product I will end up making a part of my arsenal from here on out. There is no placebo effect involved...the stuff does what it is supposed to and the product exceeded my expectations considerably.

Lots of good reviews in here

Tastes exactly like what it says. It literally tastes as if you were to bite into a Granny Smith Apple. Doesn't taste artificial at all even though some artificial flavoring is used.
This is the reason why I would purchase this product again. Great endurance. Lactic Acid build up is virtually nonexistent when taking Condense. Muscles would literally just give out due to lack of ATP and would be virtually painless once the last rep was pushed. More less it felt as if my arms would just give out. With Condense I felt as if I could go for another 3-4 more reps than without Condense.
My favorite pump product to date, however, not the strongest pump out there. This pump is enjoyable and allows me to get a mind to muscle connection. Pump isn't painful at all unlike other ingredients like agamatine citrulline etc.
All you honestly need to wake up. Doesn't have that WOW factor like Muscle Marinade will have to offer you; however, it does get the job done and wake you up.
Not a focus like Focus XT or a Nootropic, more like your so intune with your pump, its gonna motivate you to keep going and focus. Well at least thats how I felt.
Great addition to other preworkouts
Not to stimmed up so it is usable at night
- 11-20-2012, 04:11 PM
so i had a sample packet and decided to give it a shot today before workout.
taste: 4/5 had the green apple. not a bad taste at all, tasted like a sour apple candy, real sweat but not too sweet. only thing i noticed was a small hint of that medicine taste but who drinks pre/wo for the taste.
energy: 5/5 perfect type of energy i was lookin for. a nice slap in the face right before the weights and not jittery at all and not crazy focused where i dont talk at all. even better, no crash and i feel good now.
pump: 5/5 wow, pumps are insane with this stuff, veins comin out of everywhere and im stayin pumped, not goin away. this stuff is awesome
workout: 5/5 been doin a lot more reps and strength feels a bit up. i just feel great at the gym
sides: ok so not everyone is experiencing this, only certain. its like superpump ****s all over again, im afraid to go to class tonight cuz i mite have an issue. been in and out of the bathroom since the dose. maybe its cuz im on empty stomach but ya.
- 11-20-2012, 06:10 PM
I bought the Condense because I heard so many ppl on this forrum loved it. Damn, they all were rite! Its the Bomb!
First off when I opened up the container of melonberry cooler I was shocked the smell was as if I was opening a bag full of candy! And I'm a sucker for candy lol!
The taste is even better than the smell! It mixed great! I will say the first time I took it I took 1 scoop of MM and 1 scoop of Condense, What a rush! After workout had to sit to try and slow my roll haha. I did take 2 scoops of just condense the 2nd day and before I got too the gym I new this stuff was the real deal. A slight tingle in my body and face not too bad but remember I took 2 scoops. I toar up the gym, pumps were massive.
My wife is hooked on it, she actualy has a half container of c-4 on the shelf that she won't touch cause she has the condense. She told me not too touch her condense lol
I'm getting ready to buy some more, but going to go with the apple kind (hurd its the Bomb too)
Just wanna say "Thanks Purus for making such great Products and you have a customer for Life!)

Ok this review has been long overdue. been really busy lately but my log will be finished soon!
Taste/Mixability: 4.5/5 mixes pretty dam well and really leaves no residue or junk at the bottom of a shaker bottle. The Green Apple is freaking amazing. "THE BEST DAMN FLAVORED PRE-WORKOUT IVE EVER TASTED!" :) seriously it tastes awesome, just like apple juice but not as sweet! The only issue I have with it is that it gives me bad breath after i drink it but nothing i cant fix with gum!
Price: 5/5 works good enough that i only take 1 scoop so for 40 servings at $27.99 thats pretty dam cheap! Since ive got 3 bottles thats $83 bucks for 4 months ive saved a lot of money on my pre workout!
Energy/Stims: 3/5 This is an individual preference but i didnt like the fact that there was 200mg of caffeine in it providing the same energy any other product with caffeine does. the reason being that i already take caffeine and would prefer to have less of it. I could take a smaller serving but i find that the pumps are better at 1 whole scoop. This was my only issue with the product and it would be nice if they made a caffeine free version of this. Im sure its just a way to give the pre workout a "kick" but I could care less for stimulant energy because the nitrates were all i was interested in. Speaking of which...
Pumps/Vascularity: 5/5 FREAKIN SICK! veins like road maps the second i start training! Pumps come up real quick but it aint painful its just the right amount to get the muscles nice n full. With my pre workout carbs this product kicks all other products asses!
Overall: A really awesome product and I appreciate what Purus does for their fans and customers. They have been bustin out some really great products so far and I really cant wait to start trying the others! Am looking forward to seeing more from them. Condense IS really awesome and I will be keeping it in my supplement regimen for a long time :) unless they come up with something stronger! With Condense expect some really sick veins, massive pumps, and a long lasting steady amount of energy!

From the sounds of it Purus Labs has some very good products!Life's a garden, dig it
- 11-27-2012, 01:43 PM
I have been taking this for a few days now and the Apple flavor is good. The focus is also better than most other pre-workout products out there. Pump? Eh? I really don't lift in the higher rep range so maybe this is why I don't feel so much of a pump. All in all I would rate this product a solid 8.5/10.
It does what it was designed to do!

- 12-10-2012, 10:56 AM
I wanted to right another review on this stuff because now my girlfriend is hooked! Free apple she claim tastes amazing and she has bee more gym motivated and getting much better work outs with just a quarter of a scoop. She has also bee doing more cardio ad finds that she can go longer.
Now using it for about a month the only complaint I have is please increase the diameter of the bottle lol I can't fit my hand in it!My muscles are pharmaceutically enhanced.
- 12-25-2012, 08:14 PM
I mean this product shines at 2 scoops, but that's only 20 servings.
I had the Crisp Apple, it was okay to drink, not a bad taste at all, just wasn't something I like drinking.
The pumps are amazing, the strength is good nothing more, the vascularity is out of this world. I've never had a tight pump from a pre workout and the visual pump made it look like my arms grew 2 inches in that workout alone.
This is a worthwhile product if you're looking for a good pump product. This will make you feel and look pumped. I am not exaggerating the visual pump this provides. It is amazing honestly I was shocked. The worst thing about this is the nausea it gave me. The caffeine is really high at 2 scoops.
- 12-27-2012, 12:35 AM
I generally respond only marginally to pump products. I've used every single form of arginine the supp industry has puked out over the years and they are always hit or miss. Agmatine doesn't do much, though I haven't tried every brand yet as per everyone's recommendation.
Well, Condense has changed all that..which is much appreciated. I've gotten in 3 different workouts so far and they've all produced great pumps. This last workout was pretty phenomenal and by the end, I looked like I did back in my PH years...thick, swole, and veiny. Seems to boost endurance and strength a little bit, but really shines when you add creational-O-phosphate.
Who cares, you f'in taste princess. Shame on you for even looking at this sub section;) Seriously though, tastes fine. Not dying to drink it for fun, but goes down fine.
Stim effect is moderate, useful, and fades within a few hours which I appreciate. I hate over stimmed pre WO products as I lift in the evening.
- 12-28-2012, 10:42 AM
Thanks to Grambo for the chance to log this stuff and his patience with me on getting this review up.
I have some mixed feeling on this stuff so bare with me.
I am not going to list ingredients . But at a glance they decent.
Has some beta-alanine , Potassium and some other goodies.
Also note there is NOT a creatine in this so you can add your choice of creatine to it, or use then when its time to cycle off.
Effectiveness: Three PARTS ( 7.5 overall )
I loved the energy I got from this. I could tell it was a good feel, Not cracked out, Not too strong. Just enough to get that push you need. I had no crash. I could feel the tingles from the beta alanine every time I used it. Even at a half scoop. I really enjoyed this part of it.
It was hit and miss on this. I never could get the timing right with the right amount of carb's or something with this to get the full feel of what it says was possible. It was kinda aggravating.
I had more veins visible every workout with this product. Even at the end of what turned into a 2 month bulk. I gained fat but was still seeing eye popping veins. I have a new one that goes from neck across my chest into my arm that I could see through a shirt. Even with not much of a muscle pump I had crazy veins. I like it too, if you are anything like me seeing that in the mirror is instant motivation.
I really like the strong bite this had.It really has a punch too it. I would sometimes just dump it on my tongue and get a drink. It would really give you a kick in the mouth of taste then.!
I think it is a bit high for what it is as compared with muscle marinade I think it should be a little less. I have found some decent deals for it but most are around 25 - 32 bucks.
Taking in the consideration of the pumps being off and on, and the price it brings it down. If I new a way to gets the pumps every time it would be a lot better. Even the pumps I did get was not as good as when I was taking d -pol that stuff is still king for pumps.

Condense (40 Servings)
Thanks for taking the time to write that in depth review. Means a lot to us.
- 03-04-2013, 11:59 AM
Just finshed a 30 day log of condense.
Flavor - 5/5, tastes like a sour apply jolly ranch
Mixability - I always mix my stuff with a wire ball so generally no clumps/sediment.
Pumps - can't really state as I have never had a product give me earth shaking pumps. I am currently hoovering around 15% BF so this might be why.
Caffeine - 1 scoop was my sweet spot.
I have tried numerous PWO's and there are only 2 I would really suggest and Condense is one of them.
A Definite Buy!

Re: Condense (40 Servings)
Smell - 9/10
Awesome smell. No chemical smell and was very distinct watermelon aroma.
Mixability - 9/10
There was absolutely zero sediment when mixing ConDense. The only thing I noticed was there was quite a bit of foam on top but after a couple of swirls the foam subsided to a minimum. One of the best mixing products Ive ever seen. Similar to amino mixing.
Taste - 10/10
Hands down the best tasting supp I have ever had. No chemical taste. Not overpowering. Smooth and amazing. Homerun guys.
Focus - 7/10
Had good focus the entire time I was using ConDense. No tunnel vision but was very good the one time I used it by itself.
Energy - 8/10
Very smooth energy and no crash. 400mgs caffeine is a great pickme up and a nice even rush for the entire workout. I also felt like ConDense was INTENSIFYING Muscle Marinade. It opend my veins up so much that I was getting EVERYTHING from MM when they were stacked.
Endurance - 10/10
I hit some rep PR's in the last few weeks and I attribute that to the increased bloodflow and oxegenation of the blood alot.
Strength - 6-10
No noticeable strength increase when I used ConDense by itself but I didnt expect any. I didnt fall off at all due to the increased energy tho so Im satisfied with this aspect.
Pumps - 9/10
This is where ConDense shines. It took about three to four days for the nitrates to really build up in my system otherwise this would be a 10. After the initial "Loading" phase the pumps got better and better with each use. Today (my last day) was the best yet. Dissapointed that I ran out cause I was surprised how strong the pumps were today and Im too cheap to buy more right now :P Vascularity got better every day and the last couple weeks I have had some of the best "veinage" ever in my triceps/quads/shoulders.
Overall - 9/10
For me I didnt expect mindblowing strength increases on this product. I graded it for what I expect it to be. A pump product with a good pick me up. I have only ever had one other pump product deliver like ConDense has. This is now 100% in my top 10 supps. Amazing pumps, awesome vascularity, great smooth energy, best taste of ANY supplement drink and very low price for what it offers. Purus hit a home run with ConDense and there will be plenty in my Supp cupboard from now on

Crazy good pump. Looked very swole before I even got to the gym. The taste and the mix ability was what really did this product for me. I will buy a bottle of Condense after I run out of my other pwo that's for sure!

Condense is a excellent Pre workout. It contains no dye's and no creatine. I had the Crisp Apple and its miles above anything taste wise.
Energy is very good at 2 scoops and the pumps are fantastic. It also shines as a endurance product. Value is excellent.

Condense is definitely one of the better pre-W.O.’s on the market and deserves to be mentioned in any discussion. Props to Purus Labs for putting something together that does not diminish over time.
Energy – 5/5 – After 17 workouts, the energy was just as intense with each workout. I would dose 10 minutes before a workout and could feel it ramp up. Then it was like I was on cruise control throughout my workouts and a few hours afterwards. Nice part was that it was clean and no crash.
Focus – 6/5 – This is what I loved about Condense the most because my mind has a tendency to wander when I’m in the gym. This time around, I felt no wandering and loved it. The only other supplement that I could get this level of focus on was Primordial Performance’s Drive. Just this time around there was no insomnia…
Pump – 1/5 – If you’re looking for a pump with your pre-W.O., I did not experience much in this department. It was inconsistent to say the best. Some workouts it was there, others it was not. Diet may play a part in this but I wouldn’t hold my breath.
Taste – 5/5 – Crisp Apple is where it’s at. Fruit Punch is the god father of flavors but it’s so over used that it tastes like $hit. A little on the sour side but I like that. If I was still drinking vodka and still in college, I would want to experiment with mixing the two… F*ck Red Bull and Jägermeister shots, I would be down for a Condense and Vodka shots any day.
Mixabiltiy – 5/5 – I was impressed here. Though when I added water, I saw little flavor flakes floating about, I always assumed that there would be a little grit. There wasn’t any. I like not having to chew anything I drink.
Overall, this is yet another solid product by Purus Labs.

I also like crisp apple the most. On my 4th tub, this stuff stays good. I can get a great workout on 1 scoop, if I really want to kill I take one and a half. Awesome. Seriously love this pre workout, amazing price, works awesome. Good focus drive and pump. I recommend it all the time.

Condense (40 Servings)
Thanks country, I feel the same way! I live on this stuff.
- 03-16-2013, 05:08 PM
I love the price too obviously. I workout 4 days a week now, so 45 services lasts me almost 3 months. at like 23 bucks a tub, thats awesome. 50 cents per serving? and I don't feel guilty if I want to take a bigger serving some days. I love how clean the energy and pump is, I don't get sick or digestive problems like I have in the past. I used to get back gas/burping a lot, the acid craps, etc. I can add in my own creatine etc if I want, and I can take it with meals instead of having to take it pre workout. Again, awesome product.Log: http://anabolicminds.com/forum/workout-logs/226478-country-gets-huge.html#post3905023

Gotti's Condense Review
Thanks to Grambo and Team Purus for allowing me to try the product.
So about a year ago I started only taking one scoop of preworkouts, I figured if it was advertised I'd only need 1 scoop. So my review will be based on that and the little bit over one scoop I've tried of Codense.
Mixability: First thing you see when you receive a pre workout is when you the mix the powder. Lets start there. Condense mixes great. I never had any flakes or anything. Went down smooth everytime. We all know some preworkouts have that powder right at the end that chokes you up.
Taste: Taste was good. I had crisp apple. It wasn't the best apple flavor I ever had but being a huge fan of apple flavor. I don't think anyone would have a problem with this flavor, it's crisp, clean, and light.
Endurance: This is where the product fails. 200mg's of caffeine just doesn't cut it. I didn't get much if any energy from just 1 scoop. When I went over one scoop the energy was a tad better but still not close to where I would like it to be.
Pumps: Pumps were hit and miss. Never received skin tearing pumps but I did have a few sessions with better than average pumps. I didn't notice any difference when I upp'd the dose.
Vascularity: Even when I had better pumps I never got better vascularity from this product. Nothing really else to report here, didn't do much for me at all.
BA: I hate beta alanine and think it's one of the worst things. I don't mind if it's in products as long as they dont' over dose it. I didn't get the annoying tingles from Condense which is a plus. I did get them a few times after cardio though. Not enough BA to really negatively effect my workout. I still would rather throw out the BA though and replace it with some creatine or another stimulant.
Overall: It's a pretty simple profile but thats also it's downfall. For me Condense doesn't stand out compared to other pre workouts for me. Maybe if you mix it with another stimulant type preworkout it may be worth it. Or for someone who is sensitive to stimulants this product would be good but overall I wouldn't recommend it.
