    So this is my second day using this stack of Muscle Merinade and D-pol. I like to take the D-pol about an hour or so before lifting with a high carb. (complex carbs) meal. This seems to work best for me to get a good pump going. The pump doesn't last into the next day light others have experienced but it does last through my work out and then some. Tried mixing the MM in only 8oz. of water and this was not a good thing. The 12oz. of water seemed to water it down too much but the 8oz. was definitely not enough water. Tomorrow I will try 10oz and see how that tastes. The energy kicks in about 10-15 minutes after I take it and I feel ready for the gym.

    Last night was chest/shoulders and I am feeling it today! I was there by myself and was able to flow through the lifts at a pretty quick pace! Changed over to a 5x5 routine to see where that leads me.

    DB Shoulder Press, Incline press, Incline Fly
    30lbx5
    35x5
    45x5
    50x5
    60x5

    Front DB raises
    3 sets of 15x5
    2 sets of 20x5

    Lateral DB raises
    4 sets of 15x5
    1 set 20x5

    External and Internal Rotations
    20x5
    20x5
    25x5
    25x5
    30x5

    Bent over DB raises
    40x5
    45x5
    50x5
    55x5
    60x5

    Flat DB fly
    35x5
    45x5
    55x5
    60x5
    60x5

    Flat DB press
    50x5
    55x5
    55x5
    60x5
    60x5

    At the end of this, my shoulders and chest were toasted! I love nights like this!

    So you're thinking the nitrates in D-pol have a cumulative effect? I like having a good pump going into a workout and when finished, just seems to make the lifts feel more productive. Probably more mental than physical but still!

    This has been my experience that the pumps are nice during workouts in the beginning put slowly get better and better.

    Well from reading Fl3x's log on this stack, I will no longer be dosing my DAA-HCG on off days and will dose the D-Pol everyday. Lets see what kind of build up effect this stuff has!

    Wicked workout, you've been dosing the daa-hcg on off days and d-pol on workout days?

    Yeah, the D-Pol says to be used prior to intense exercise so I was just using it on w/o days but still wanted to keep using my DAA-HCG on the off days. Of course, if Grambo wants us to dose it every day, then every day it is!

    So last night was legs and abs. No squats, deads or good mornings due to lower back. I miss them. Of course it is causing me to focus on other lifts and getting stronger on those. Energy was very nice last night and being that it was legs/abs, the pump didn't really factor in but my upper body WAS pumped.

    Leg extension
    50x10
    75x10
    100x10
    125x10
    150x10 (PR)

    Laying leg curl
    50x5
    50x5
    50x5
    75x5
    75x5

    Standing leg curl
    4plates(weight????)x5
    4px5
    4px5
    5px5
    5px5

    Leg raises
    20
    15
    15
    15
    15

    Rope crunch
    12plates (weight???)x10
    +25x10
    +50x10
    +50x10
    +75x10 (PR)

    Leg press to calf press
    318x5
    367x5
    420x5
    420x5
    420x5

    DB pullover
    50x10
    60x10
    70x10
    70x10
    70x10

    Weighted sit-ups
    30x10
    30x10
    35x10
    35x10
    40x10

    I think that my rope crunches could have gone heavier but they were starting to strain my lower back a little too much at the heavier weight. Was pleased that I got the two PR's and ready for more. Today, I am still having a pretty good pump going on in my arms and torso, so maybe the build up that Grambo was talking about is kicking in!

    Thanks buddy! My chiropractor said I probably shouldn't do the rope crunches for a while to let my bulged disc heal up. He gave me a list of ab exercises he thought would be helpful though. I've said it before but you gotta love a chiro that understands the lifting mentality!! Updates at lunch time today.

    Haven't really been noticing the "pump" all that much. I do when I lift, a while after a little more than normal and every now and again during the day. I would like to see the all day, randomly have to flex, full muscle pump that I have had with other products. It is getting better but I wonder if the cold weather and being out in it all the time doesn't affect it some. The energy that I get from the MM is great! I don't feel cracked out, my heart doesn't feel like it's going to explode, I don't have trouble breathing/ catching my breath and it doesn't make me have to run to the toilet. I tried mixing it with 12oz of water again and after trying it with less water the past few times, this time it tasted pretty decent. LOL!

    Chest/ shoulders

    Flat bench
    135x15

    Nice bench numbers

    What day are you on now?

    The all day pump you are talking about does eventually come but it is definitely something that slowly builds up. I started noticing it really well maybe 3 weeks in if I recall correctly. It kinda snuck up on me! The cold weather definitely is not helping with it though that is a good point.

    This is actually day seven of taking the D-Pol every day. I have to apologize for my misunderstanding of the dosing.

    Last night was back and arms. It was another one of those blah workouts. I had plenty of energy and all, I just couldn't get my head into it too well. Maybe it was the music that the other guys had playing on the radio. Brian Adams and that style just isn't good lifting music to me. I like to have some harder stuff like Five Finger, Disturbed, Shinedown, Mudvaine, you know, the good stuff! Of course, I left my ear phones at work. :-(

    On a side note, not sure if this is related to something in the D-Pol, my sleep has been better lately. Falling to sleep doesn't take as long and I wake up ahead of the alarm feeling well rested. Even on the nights when I take the MM, I have no problem getting to sleep. The first night I took the MM I was up till 12 before even thinking of going to bed. (usual time is around 10-10:30pm for bed time). Curious if anyone else has noticed this as well or if it is just me.

    Just did flat bench tonight. Was supposed to be leg and ab night but plans changed. Gonna go to a gym tomorrow after work and get a workout in there for my legs and abs. Decided to actually join a gym to where I can get some other leg lifts in that won't kill my back. I enjoy the squats and deads but my spine doesn't so much! Lol! Will post up what I did tonight tomorrow.

    As some of you might remember, I lift over at my preacher's place with a mix of his stuff and my stuff. Anyways, they decided to buy a house and not rent the house they're in anymore. We all went to inspect the house and check it out. There is a place to set up the "Steel Mill" at the new place but not as much room. Looks like I'll have to find a place at my house for some of my things. Going over to the house and talking with the big guy about what changes he wanted to make to the house took longer than expected so lifting had to be cut way short. Like I said above, only did flat bench.

    205x10
    225x5
    245x5
    265x3
    225x5
    185x12
    135x30

    Had a great pump after that! With only doing that, it's probably not even worth saying that energy was still very strong by the end. Starting to see some more pump throughout the day but not real great yet. It is also warming up a bit and I do think the cold has been stifling the pumps a bit.

    Joined a gym today that is about 5 minutes from work. Wanted to be able to go heavier on legs and not hurt myself. Not able to do squats or deads kinda limits me at the "Steel Mill" to my Weider machine. This gym has a hack squat that is nice and some other leg machines that are nice. I can do the leg presses in the hack squat and it doesn't hurt my back so that is awesome! Only problem is that now I have to be around others more and wait for things. Oh well. Just did an abbreviated workout to kinda get used to the new place.

    Leg extensions
    55x5
    85x5
    130x5
    160x5(PR)
    190x5(PR)

    Seated leg curl
    55x10
    85x10
    115x5(PR)
    160x5(PR)
    175x5(PR)

    Leg press
    180x10 (knees to chest)
    250x10 (ktc)

    Calf press
    180x10
    250x20

    Leg raises
    x20
    x15

    That's it. I plan to go here after work and get some good leg work and cardio in a few times a week on top of the 3 days a week at the "Steel Mill". Looking forward to gaining some size and strength in my legs!

    Hit my chest and shoulders again tonight because the last time was just flat bench. Pumps were really good and vascularity was really good too! Still not to the all day pump yet but am noticing sporadic pumps still. I dosed the D-pol differently tonight by eating a salad with cottage cheese instead of oatmeal and eggs. I also took it only 45 min. prior to lifting instead of the hour and 15 min like normal. I believe the bottle says 1 1/2 hrs but the 45 min seems to work better for me. The pump was a lot more pronounced!

    Flat bench
    135x15
    205x5
    225x5
    245x1
    265x1
    295x FAIL had it up but couldn't lock it out

    DB shoulder press
    40x10
    45x5
    55x5
    60x5

    DB raises (front to lateral)
    15x5
    15x5
    15x5
    20x5

    Bent over DB raises
    45x5
    50x5
    55x5
    60x5

    Shoulder rotations (Internal and external)
    20x5
    25x5
    25x5
    30x5

    Lights out!

    So no lifting tonight. My right arm has a bruise/lump on it from last Tuesday night/ Wednesday morning. Not sure what happened but I was telling everybody that my wife beat me while I was sleeping for not getting her a V-day present. Of course, she had to point out that for her to have hurt me like this, she would have been bruised too. Kinda thinking that I hit the edge of the dresser beside the bed with the side of my arm during my sleep. The thing that gets me is that I never woke up. Anyways, it hurts worse today than it did last week so I set up a doctor's appointment for tomorrow morning. I have been icing it quite a bit and it doesn't seem to have any effect on the swelling. Truth be told, it might actually be more swollen now. This is what concerns me. I heal fairly fast and this is NOT getting better. Makes me want to check and see if there is a hair line fracture or something that is being aggravated by lifting and my work. Better safe than sorry. If it is just a bruise, then, I will just continue to push through it with my lifts. Grip strength is still normal just holding things solid but if there is any rotation, then I lose it a little-a lot. I know that swinging the 2 lb. mallet at work today was not fun at all!

    I do like the MM, not sure if I'm sold on the D-pol just yet. As far as pointers, don't take MM too close to bed and I think 15 minutes prior to lifting is best not 45.

    Yeah I hope it's nothing serious but after almost dropping my daughter yesterday and it feeling worse today, enough was enough! Unfortunately wasn't able to get in till tomorrow morning. At least I get to sleep in a little.

    The Dpol gets better and better as testosterone increases and nitrates really kick in. This is somewhat subtle in most and not in your face like MM haha The pumps with and without Dpol is very obvious though for me. However it did take a bit before it became a noticeable almost always pumped feeling.

    Acute tendonitus is the doctor's diagnosis. Treatment is a week of Prednizone(steroid), limit repetitive actions, wrap the arm with ace bandage and keep elevated when at rest. Dr wants me on the steroid for a week. Really screws up this log! If Purus and Grambo want, I will purchase MM and D-pol and run this log again to give a fair review.

    So I have decided that I am not happy with the way this log went. Therefore, to be fair to Purus, I am going to order another bottle of each (MM & D-Pol) and do a re-do of this log. It is only fair! Grambo and Purus were generous to allow me to test out their product and it is not right to not give them a quality log. This log has had a couple breaks and a misunderstanding on dosing and that needs to be rectified. So Friday after I get paid, I will place an order and as soon as it comes in, I will start up anew.
