Positive Effects 10/10:
Summarized, this product has provided me with insane increases in pump, focus, and overall stamina. The pump does continue as advertised, a long lasting experience, without crash like stimmed products.

Negative Sides 8/10:
Two days I had minor stomach discomfort, but nothing to speak of as a real negative.

Strength 9/10:
Strength continually improved or stayed the same throughout the duration of the use of P-BOL. Never felt this strong on a cut, esp. one this hardcore for contest.

Pumps 10/10:
Insane pumps, very comparable to using C-Bol plus Hemavol (my last fav combo). I couldnt imagine what it would be like with C+P Bol. Had trouble walking on legs day .

Vascularity 9/10:
Very very awesome vascularity throughout the day, with noticeable improvement as time went on.

Adaptogenic Effects 8/10:
Greater between set recovery, less DOMs.

Overall 9.5/10:

The only thing that holds a candle to this product is C-Bol plus Hemavol/Agmatine, but its insanely close. The focus and stamina I got from this product were stellar, esp. for a non stim product. I will definitely be buying more of this. Thanks to Thermolife for selecting me as a logger, I appreciate it immensely! Go buy this stuff!
