First and foremost, I would like to thank Grambo and Purus Labs for giving me the opportunity to try out this product. I will run this product for 27 lifting days and then give it a review. I give my word that my review will be honest and impartial.
My training right now is as follows...
Upper Body, Lower Body, Off, repeat. Currently i'm doing high volume as the past few weeks I had been doing heavier weight and it was taking it's toll on my body.
So my marinade arrived today, just in time for my lower body workout. I was reading the label (print is really small!) - Purus says to take no more than one scoop at a time and that one scoop is all you need.
They aren't lying.
I was really lightheaded and energetic the whole workout. For now, i'm not going to update with exercise and weights (unless you guys would like to see that - I have no problems doing that). I will comment on the profile tomorrow as I haven't had time to sit down and look at it.
Needless to say I had a solid lift, and i'm looking forward to seeing how my body adapts to this product.
Looking at the label....the ATP Resynthesis/Intracellular Carnosine-Anserine Bossting/Myocellular Pwer & Complex is pretty decent. 6g of creatine mono, 2.5g betanine, and 2g (which is a ****load IMO).
I'm really looking forward to continuing to use this product. I had a solid upper body lift today and was just really pumped by the time I was ready to leave the gym. Good ****!
hell yea im subd
In the fun! Going to pound a scoop myself in a minute haha
I'm in for the ride...

"There is no point in being alive if you cannot do the deadlift." - Jon Pall Sigmarsson
I had a pretty lower body session last night....looked like this
6 sets of front squats
5 sets of deadlifts
4 sets of BB Hack Squats
3 sets of lying leg curls
3 sets of one legged raises
3 sets of calf raises
Various Weighted Ab Work
So far it's really helping me push through the workouts. However, I noticed a slight headache last night. The harder I pushed towards the end of the workout....the more pronounced it became. Maybe I'm just sensitive to the formula and it could take me a few days to adjust. Still had a great workout regardless
Were you able to sleep last night? I see how potent that stim complex is and see this as a morning only pre-workout (at least for me).
If my direct and cynical approach bothers you, just ignore it. I'm just saying what you need to hear ;).
Today was supposed to be an off day....but I decided to lift today and take tomorrow off (going to happy hour with a chick). Will still wake up tomorrow and do my jump rope and ab circuits.
Tonights lift looked like this
BB Incline 3 sets with a triple drop set on last set
Smith Machine Rows for 4 sets
EZ Bar Curls for 6 sets
Rope pulldowns for 4 sets
Plate Raises for 3 sets
BB Shrug for 5 sets
Parallel Bar Pulldowns for 4 sets
Various core work
So today was the REAL test for muscle marinade.
Last night, I went out for some drinks with this chick I've been messing around with. We each had two 32oz blue moons a piece (only $5.50 per mug) and split a bottle of wine when we got back to my place. Needless to say it was a LATE NIGHT. We actually had sex on the rooftop of my building....19th floor overlooking the capital building and national monument here in DC. Pretty BA.
So I got to bed about one and felt kind of ****ty this morning. Woke up at 7ish. 6 hours of drunken sleep. Worked all day and went to the gym.
Needless to say I had an awesome lift. MM really came through today...and it was a lower body day!
BB Squats - 135x20, 185x15, 225x10, 225x10, 250x8
Box Jumps - 32in x10 for 3 sets
Seated Calf Raises - 90x15, 140x12, x12, x12
Hamstring Curl - 90x12 for 4 sets
SLDL - 135x20, 185x15, x12, x12
One Legged Extensions - 60x12 for four sets
Leg Press - 2pps x20, 3pps x20, 4pps x20
Did a lot of reps nice and slow today....really focused on squeezing the muscle and utilizing time under tension.
Done. Skipped core work today as it was super sore from Tuesday (did core twice that day) and I was tired as $h!t at that point.
Nicely done!!! All around
following this log...i'm nursing an injury and am forced to take few weeks off from training, but have a brand new unopened container of MM on standby. what flavor do you have? how's the taste...any thoughts on the ingredient profile? keep the reviews coming...
I have the grape juice flavor. I usually throw a scoop in 16oz of water on the rocks. It's not a bad taste. Personally taste usually isn't a really big issue for me on any product. I just man up lol. But really though it's not spectacular, but it's not the worst. Kinda in the middle with taste. It's okay. I chug all my preWOs in like 5 sec anyways
Now as far as the ingredient profile goes....it seems to have a nice dose of EAAs (about 6 grams). I usually drink on 12g of EAAs during my workout as it is...so I don't mind having that extra before hand.
It has a ****load of Beta Alanine. 2g is a decent amount...and if you wanted to you could even get some bulk and add to this. I usually feel the BA tingle on my walk to the gym...about 15min after I slam my MM.
It also has 6g of creatine mono. Pretty typical for most preWOs to have some creatine. I'm glad it's mono and not some other BS creatine. Mono and Dicreatine Malate are the only two creatines I care to use. Dicreatine Malate is a dietary compound comprising of creatine and malic acid. This advanced creatine form is more PH-stable, more water-soluble, and is more bioavalable than regular creatine monohydrate.
I would comment on the stim complex but I do not know much about it. But it DOES work (see previous post)
Stimulant complex is just caffeine and geranium.....but very high dosed haha
