  1. TheDeadlifter's hot and spicy Muscle Marinade


    I was chosen to run a log for Purus Labs' Muscle Marinade. Here's a quick run-down of the product:



    Purus Labs Muscle Marinade
    "The pre-workout dietary supplement Muscle Marinade was specifically engineered to meet the performance and recovery needs of hard-training men and women. Using a detailed, systematic, and scientifically-sound approach to product development, Muscle Marinade utilizes only research-supported ingredients at the precise dosages used in the clinical research studies. The ingredient matrix comprising Muscle Marinade addresses all components related to both exercise performance and exercise recovery. Performance-related factors include mind/ muscle stimulation and energy production, hydrogen ion buffering, electrolyte balancing and hydration, and enhancement of muscle power and endurance. Recovery-related factors include insulin release and nutrient shuttling, cortisol reduction, protein anabolism, enhancement of cellular immunity, and improved health and antioxidant defense. Collectively, the ingredients provided within Muscle Marinade serve the dual purpose of improving acute exercise performance and supporting post-exercise recovery. Muscle Marinade is clearly an avant-garde product at the pinnacle of its class and should be considered for inclusion within any athlete's arsenal."

  2. I received my Purus Punch-flavored Muscle Marinade on Friday. I came home to see a large box sitting on the front doorstep. I picked it up and noticed that it was not heavy at all. I opened the box to find a huge piece of packing paper shoved inside. Once I removed that I saw the black tub in the bottom along with a packing list. Being like a kid on Christmas morning, I immediately opened the container to check it out. I unscrewed the lid and thought I had been jipped out of product: the tub is only about half full. That's a big tub for so little product. Interesting. The scoop inside has an extra long handle to reach to the bottom of the container - definitely a plus. Of course I had to taste it so I licked my finger and stuck it down into the powder. I was impressed with the initial flavor. The Purus Punch tasts like actual fruit punch and doesn't have a medicinal aftertaste. Nice.

    Stay tuned for the next episode when TheDeadlifter tries his first full dose...

  6. Well good initial start!!

    On the size of the jug thing........... One it makes it more pronounced on the shelf versus being too small. But the big reason is that sometime in the future (not any type of ETA at all for now) we are going to use the same containers for a post workout formula. So we killed two birds with one stone getting one size for both especially beign custom color and design.

    So you're saying size does matter... hmmmm...

    Really, though, the container size doesn't make a bit of difference to me. It was just an observation. It's the effectiveness of the product inside that counts...

  10. In addition to Muscle Marinade, here's my current supplement stack:

    Fish oil
    Animal Pak
    Animal Flex
    whey
    Vit D
    Universal Uniliver
    Universal Torrent

    Prior to Muscle Marinade, my pre-training mixture consisted of one 200mg caffeine pill that I washed down with 10-12oz 100% Welch's grape juice with 5g creatine mono and 2.5g beta alanine. It seemed to work well for me if taken 30-40 minutes prior to hitting the gym and it's super cheap. We'll see how Muscle Marinade stacks up...

    Powerlifting is synonymous with joint soreness so I don't think I could get out of bed in the morning if I didn't take Flex. I notice a big difference with vs. without it. It's become a staple in my supplement regimen.

    I get it for less than $19 a can - not bad for a 44-day supply.

  15. My first experience with Muscle Marinade:

    The actual Muscle Marinade powder is kind of an off-white color in the container. As I poured some in my water bottle, the 16oz of water started tuening a yellowy-orange color. After shaking vigorously, it becomes more orange. There are some small white things floating around which I assume are bits of slow-to-dissolve aminos - I've seen it before in other pre-training products. The taste of the Purus Punch was actually very good. Honestly, it's the best tasting PWO I've ever tried. But does it work as intended...?

    I began feeling the beta alanine 'tingles' within minutes. I've tried products claiming they have BA in them but have never felt it like this. I began making my way down to the gym and by the time I got dressed and ready to go, the stims had kicked in a bit (which I really needed - it was a long day). Since I coach high school football and practice began in a little over an hour, I had to condense my training a bit but that was no big deal. It was bench day and I wasn't going too heavy. After a solid warm-up and a few rep sets with 315, I ended up going to 365 and pushed out a couple sets of doubles. I only did sets of 2 because I didn't have a spotter. I moved on to shoulders (military) and only went to 185. After some dips, I did two quick supersets of cable pressdowns and lateral raises and headed to football practice.

    All in all, I felt great lifting and even at practice. I noticed that after practice I was more tired than usual, though. Not sure if that was just because I was coming down off the stims or what. I was kind of pissed at the way the defense practiced so that could've been it, too.

    Deadlifts are next on the menu...

  17. Dead day today... always a fun time.

    I mixed my Muscle Marinade and chugged it down about 25 minutes before I picked up my first weight of the day. I did some dynamic stretching and some warm-ups before getting to it. My focus today was on technique. I watched video from my last meet and I relied on my back waaaay too much on the pull. I've moved my feet in a couple inches and dropped my butt a little to create more hip drive instead of killing my lower back. It feels a little different but that's the way I'll be training from now until my next meet in October. I began with 135 and kept adding plates on each set until I hit 405. I pulled that for an easy 8 reps then went to 455. I did 2 sets of 455x6 with a focus on form. I then dropped down to 315 and did a set of speed pulls just for fun (not sure how many reps). I did not do max reps or effort today; I'll do speed pulls and heavy stuff next week. After deads, I did some reverse hypers and cable pull-throughs.

    I felt good start to finish. So far Muscle Marinade seems decent. The only real negative was a slight soreness in both of my knees today. It was not severe enough to impact my training, though. We've had some crappy weather here in FL so that may have something to do with it.

    now that's classic old-school style, i love that!... but the upgrade to MM will have you forgetting that old school stack

  22. btw try the grape juice flavor if you get a chance... tastes just like grape juice, not some grape-ish artificial kool-aid stuff.

    thats how real grape juice was for me back in the day... toss my creatine mono in it and mix... at 1st it was tough to get down because grape juice is definitely strong and an acquired taste... but then after a while i was downing it no prob, even with the grainy old school creatine powders

  25. Mmmmmm grape drank
