    I always use straps when doing back. Broke both of my hands at different time when I has young (football, some dudes face) grip has never been the same. Also when going heavier lets me focus on the movement not holding the weight..

  3. I'm struggling with some tendonitis in my forearm right now and straps are the only thing getting me thru.

    same situation here I just broke my hand this summer as well, it sucks not being able to go as heavy as I would like cuz it still hurts from time to time. Straps are a must on back day now sadly

  5. I've injured a lot of things but thank god my hands have always been ok. I know I could use more weight on some things with straps but I like never using them because Of the extra arm and forearm work. Plus I love having a ton of grip strength. I completely understand why a lot people like using them (such as injuries, focus on the movement, etc)

  6. So tell me, what's the most valuable part of ConDense pertaining to your work outs?
    Basically what has it help you achieve?

    Lift the fŁcking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

    I would say that 3 things come to mind. The main benefit that I have noticed is endurance. I am having to do some much higher rep work than usual and I have always been terrible with higher reps, longer runs, anything endurance related. Since adding ConDense, my endurance has benefited majorly. I am able to do a noticable increase in reps and since I have added cardio again I feel that I don't get as burnt out as quickly. I have always gotten good pumps but they have definitely had a very noticable increase with ConDense. Finally, I work long days so having that extra boost to make it to the gym is a major plus. These are the biggest changes I have noticed since incorporating ConDense.

  8. Last night I got some conditioning in. I took one scoop of ConDense and head to the always dreaded hill sprints. Decided to do a hill near my local hs track. It was about 50 yards long and pretty steep. I ran two warm up laps on the track and headed to my sprint workout. Sprint up, walk down, repeat.

    1 hillx50%
    1 hillx75%
    5 hillsx100%

    I underestimated this hill and it definitely got the best of me. It was much steeper than it looked and my I could not feel my legs at the end of the last two. Its hard to judge the endurance aspect with sprints since it is short quick bursts. I do have a theory that the shorter rest and recovery times between sets while lifting on Condense has decreased a noticable amount and this had led to quicker workouts. So without realizing it, I believe my cardio has slightly improved from this alone. 4 weeks ago I wouldnt have even been able to do this workout as sad as it sounds. Hoping to get a leg/tricep workout in tonight so we will see how my legs feel squatting after those sprints.

  9. I agree, condense has help me alot with endurance.

  10. Hit up a a quick leg and tricep workout last night. I took 2 scoops of ConDense as I was driving to the gym.

    Had a pretty solid workout I was pleased with it. I am only going to take one scoop of ConDense before legs from here on out. Honestly, the pump with 2 scoops is too much. After warming up with the bar my legs were pumped and I feel when my legs get pumped it hinders my strength in my legs. Back was a little tight so I did front squats and was able to push it more without effecting it. I have never tried 315 on front squats so it was a pretty substantial PR over anything I have done before so that was good. It was mostly a problem of balance as I was trying to keep the weight off my bad shoulder so it would pull me forward. Once again my endurance was great. Seems to be getting better every workout. I never have the energy in my legs to do barbell lunges that heavy after squatting but it went by today without a problem. Have a few more workouts and cardio sessions with this tub. I plan on purchasing more this week and playing around with some other additions such as caffiene free Focus XT.

    And of course I had to post this:

  16. Great job on the PR! I need to get my legs up to your level!

  17. Three 1 5 on the front squats is nice. I need to get back to the lunges.

    I think barbell lunges are my least favorite exercise in the world. They make you want to puke and and you can't walk for a week after. Damn effective though

  20. Ok guys I am going to be out of town until Monday so I will update as soon as I return. ConDense will most definitely be making the trip with me

  21. Enjoy your weekend bud

  22. Enjoy!!! I am lol

    I think I enjoyed it waaayyy too much. Spent most of my day yesterday alernating between driving and calling dinosaurs.

    ConDense is an awesome driving aid. A scoop before the drive there and a scoop before the drive back made all the difference in the world. Luckily for me, it was literally one of the only things I could keep down Sunday morning. The taste is that good. Got a big back workout in the works today and chest/bench work will be back on the schedule this week as well.

  24. Also, just checked my ConDense and have more left than I thought. At just over 20 bucks, a tub this stuff is a definitely easy on the wallet. Also has anybody following tried the mango flavor? Going to scoop up another tub and apple is delicious but just thinking about switching it up.
