    MKRETZ inSLINsifys his gains with Purus labs Pslin!


    Thanks so much to purus labs for letting me log this.....i am new to GDAs/insulin mimickers, but have used glycobol and slin sane, so I will try my best to mention comparisons to the two.

    - I am currently trying to bulk up with as litel fat gain as possible (arent we all lol) I am starting back in IF or lean gains diet because i feel like i am much mroe alert throughout the morning this way.....this also mean that in my fast breaking meal i will be having anywhre from 180-250 grams of carbs in one meal.....i am takingin about 3500 calories a day.... I have not weight myel lately but last it was about 143-144 that is right after going ot the bathroom, first thing in the morning on a scale that tends to read a little low, so id say im about 145 :-( Hopefully this changes.....my workouts are kinda high volume, which may be an issue.

    -My split is chest/arms, back, shoulders, arms, legs.....off days are taken if needed , usually 2 a week, always take the day after legs off. the day after legs I will usulaly go in or some cardio to get the blood flwoing to the legs....and the otehr off day usually turns into some plyometrics and/or ab and calves, becasue i am trying to get soem of my eplosivenessbac ( i used to run a 4.4 40yd dash and be able to dunk at 5'8)

    - i try to start off each workout witha power movement for low reps working on strength, power, and getting some hormones flowing.....also jsut recently (last week or so) i have really been focusing on taking the negative slow, exploding up and really contracting th muscle hard, and im loving it, ive had some of the best pumps in a while lifting thsi way and feel like this is doign alot of good. Ill start off with lower reps (8-10) for a few sets to relaly tear down teh msucle then last set will be higher reps (12-15) to pump the area full of blood for recovery

    - in regards to the slin shot, i will be doing 2 caps with the fast break meal if is is 180 or so carbs, but 3 if it is more towards 250.....anyoen have any experience with high levels of carbs like this with slinshot? how many carbs per cap? I will note any side effects (ex. glycobol gave me a heartburn feeling).....I will also comment on bloating, one thign i noticed with gylcobol was decreased bloat form large amount of carbs

    well today was a carb up day for sure.......first meal had 125 g carbs, 2nd meal (fast break) had 235 g, and eating right now meal with 40 g so dialy total of 300 g protein 400g carb 89 g fat for 3600 cals, dunno how long itsbeen since ive taken in 400g carbs so im looking forward to seeing how i look/feel tomorrow...... I took 2 slin shot with teh first meal and 3 with teh 2nd....none witht he lasst.....im kind of a carbophobe so for me to take in 235 g carbs in tat fast break meal at 9 o clock at night, thats a big deal to me so i am interested tos ee what happens. .....although the past 2 days have been almost no carb i thought i woudl have a pretty good workout since i was taking 125 g arbs with my preworkout meal with teh slin shot, however i was pretty out of it today in the gym, no idea why..........reps were a little lower so that mightve been the reason for not as much of a pump , i sitll feel liek i did some decent damage esp. since i used bands on bench and hammer strength press.....also i guy commented on how lean/cut up i am, i guess thats a good thing, but to me all that means is im too damn skinny.... cant wait for tomorrows back workout though,i should def have a lot of glycogoen so lets see how it goes!

    This is the first PSlin log I have seen since the bulk powder came back at the planet. Not sure why Purus paid for you to log a USP product though!

    today was a shoulder day.....

    started off with heavy push presses as a power movement for 4 sets of 8, only got 6 on the last set though its ok cuz i set a pr!

    then i did banded seated lilitary presses, the band was reversed though so it pulls up on the weight, a very interesting feel for sure, was gettin a good pump from that

    I had a certain workout i wanted to do but since i went to the busy gym aroudn my area at a busy tiem i had to make alot of adjustments, kinda messed with my ocus o well gotta make due.....

    then did on heavy set of DB presses followed by 2 lighter sets with a drop set, that was pretty brutal.....

    next was DB lateral raises superset with cable high pulls, what a burn......im really tring to beef up my shoulders to get a wide frame look so the heavy presses mixed with pre fatiguing my lateral delts im hoping will do this

    then i did 3 sets of rope face oulls for rear delts relaly focuing on the squeezing of the delta rather than the arms or back, def. hit a pr here with better form than usual, of course a few cheat reps at the end for some extra growth

    also for rear delts i did seated bench over rear laterals with the DB very strictjsut to finish off the rear delts.

    for traps i did rev bande shrugs which gave a great contraction, then behind the back "high pulls" i guess ud call them but u really ueee ur traps, i lvoe thse, and then a wierd DB shrug a trainer i work with showed me where u grab teh dumbells then twise ur arms so ur palms face out (awkward i know) and bring ur shoudlers a little forward making sure the weights arent resting on ur legs and do strict shrugs....i feel these more than anything, shows u how variation can really change things up!

    then for abs i jsut did sum rev. crunches and static lateral holds (holding a heavy DB in one arm and jsut bracing ur torso...harder than i thought, will do these again for sure, i wanan buildin up my abdominal wall i geuss ud call it, the walls on teh side of teh rectus abdominus, also, doe anyone have an good exercises that work for deepining teh grooves beteen my abs, they are almsot non exsistend, ive heard highr reps, but i dunno.................


    how many caps of slin shto woudl u guys recommend...ive been doin 2 with anyehre from 60-100 then 3 with anythign above that, even 200g oday, u think 4 woudl be ok? or 3 fine? what about on my higher carb day when i could be taking in almsot 300 at once?...if its under 50 g i suually dont take one, thanks!

    I would go by feel and expierment with it, try more caps with more carbs, just be sensible.

    Personally that's how I like to dose my GDAs... To answer the question if I understand it is that yes you can use more caps on higher carb days.


    Nice detail update there and also good volume.

    today was an arm day....started offwith banded towel bench 4 sets of 6 then a couple heavy singles jsut to see what i could do, def. not a max but felt good to move some heavier weights.

    then i did Rev. banded close grip smith bench presses, normally i dotn feel CG presse smuch in my tris but toay was an exception, great pumps the whoel workout, even working in the 8-10 rep range on these, i was really feelin it in my tris

    next was decline skull crushers , 4 sets 8-10 last set was a drop with presses as well

    then i did a different superset for me, 3 sets of vbar pushdown ss with bench dips, this relaly pumped up teh tris

    lastly for tris i did DB overhead ext. but woulnt go nearly as heavy as normal, tris were def. shot, form was perfect thogh, all the way down fora good stretch

    for bis i started off with sumthign ery different..... i did 4 sets of 5 negatives which was pretty tough, i have never really done negatives before i dont think, def. felt somedamage goin on haha

    net was one of my new favorite exercises, banded hammer stength plate loaded curl.......the contraction at the top of the movement becasue of the band is un beatable, nothin like it! its liek a mix of a pump and a ripping feeling all at once, gota lvoe it! 4 sets of 10 for that!

    next was lying cable str8 bar curl, 3 sets 10-12 then 3 sets incline curl 10-12 with a double drop on teh last set!

    pumps were really good today, vascularity seemed more intense as well..... overall very good workout, my tris were shaking or a few hours after, which is not normal lol so i think i did good :-)

    very intense leg workout today, once i get going its sum good stuff lol....did rev. banded suats to start again but i think i set up the bands a little different so they didnt pull up as much so i was not able to do as much, however i made sure to get extra low and really felt it in my hams and glutes and of ccourse quads......

    then i did sum jumps quats 4 sets of 6 with 135 jsut for some power....

    then was high rep squats set 12-15 , went up in weight here form last week, last set was brutal, legs were shakin, ended up at the bottom of the rack

    then did 3 heavy sets of hack squat where i was wable to increase weigh again and then a lighter set witha drop which once again had my legs feeling like they were o fire

    then moved on to hams, did glute bridges, very controlled for a cahgne with the same weihts as last week so i was def. streonger here, then moved onto RDLs.....

    next was wide stance sumo DLS with 25s on each side then jsut added weigh from tehre so i had to squat real low and really squeeed my glutes at teh top of each rep, these were brutal, but im trying to target my glutes when possible.......

    last was 3 sets of leg curls and 3 sets o leg ext last set was a double drop, then flexing and stretching after those drop sets ........ tomorrow will def. be an off day cu ill eb extremely sore, gonna do sum light cardio to get teh blood flowin though and hopefully ill find time to do some foam rolling as well

    I do deloads for a week every several months or so. I just do lighter weights and not to failure most of the time. Sometimes I just take the time off and get other things done.
