    Thats all I could squeeze in. I could feel my shoulder a bit but it felt fine after and today which is a good sign. Chest was beyond pumped with good striations and veins very apparent. I am sore as hell today too. Triceps have remained pretty strong especially with the lack of any pressing movements. Endurance was great even with the short rest periods. Looking like I have about 2 workouts left in this tub and I will throw up a final review.
    Lookin forward to it :-)

    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.

    Yep probably 2 more workouts with my promo tub and then I have another tub ready to go.

    I never even considered using an machines because I am such a firm believer in using strictly free weights as much as possible. So much so that the idea of using a machine didn't even cross my mind until a full year after the initial injury. I was impressed though because I got a decent workout using it with minimal shoulder irritation. Probably won't use it much once im healthy enough for free weights but its great for these circumstances

  5. I find machines are great for finishing off a muscle after free weights or, as you said, working around an injury.

  6. Got a back workout in last night. Strength was ok but nothing special. I expected a bit more due to the complete lack of drinking and getting good sleep over the weekend. One thing is for sure, this was one of the best back pumps I have ever had. It looked like I was carrying watermelons under my arms because I could not put them down. Worked up to heavy triples on deads but they were going very slow and felt heavier so I decided to be smart and not overdo it. I kept the weight in a range where the reps were not terribly difficult to complete but still tough. I gauge a lot of my deadlift and bench work and how intense it will be based on bar speed for weights. Took 2 scoops of ConDense before the gym.

  11. Haha thanks guys I appreciate it. I definitely did a bit more than usual I felt good and have had some personal stuff going on so I just wanted to be in the gym doing work for a while to get my mind off things. Nothing clears your mind like deadlifts. It is probably not as much volume as it looks like since almost all the deadlift sets were warm ups. I have to do the dumbell rows with reps that high since the dumbells at my gym only go to 100's so I just do them a bunch haha.

    I want to thank everyone who has followed this log. This is the first log I have ever done and I really enjoyed it. All of ya'll have helped motivate me and I appreciate it and would like to do the same in return. Really enjoyed this run and thanks again especially to aaronjp1 and airborne for the oppurtunity

  12. It's been great following along! Just start a new log with the next step in your journey u know ill follow! U can always live through my log lol!!!

  13. Ok guys it has been a great run and I have enjoyed it so for my last log entry I decided to go pretty crazy and absolutely destroy my legs. I have been eating a ton of comfort foods fromt he grandparents this weekend so I had some energy to burn off. Took 2 scoops of ConDense and went to go torture myself....

    Ab Work

    Ok this workout made me want to die. Heavy squats followed by a burnout set, followed by front squats, and then to barbell lunges is the dumbest idea ever. I will not be able to take a proper dump for days. Legs had a rediculous pump, so much so that I think my stretch marks got worse as they are all red and veins coming out everwhere. All kinds of fried foods, biscuits, pies, and home cooking from my grandparents these past 2 days combined with ConDense and high volume workouts is a perfect storm in the pump category. Strength was solid not only in a low reps sense, but stamina wise as well. Endurance, energy, and focus were top notch as well. BA tingles have gone away over these past few weeks too. Overall, a very satisfying workout.

    Thats the last of my promo ConDense. Time to crack open my next tub. Review should be up later today guys

  14. Great log, I'll see ya next time.

  17. ConDense Final Review


    Taste/Mixability: 10/10 Taste was pretty damn awesome. I am not a big apple fan and I ordered another tub of the same flavor it was so good. Kind of like apple laffy taffy. Not very tart or sour unless you use very little water mixing it. It definitely has that granny smith apple taste with the perfect mount of sweetness. Honestly, I enjoyed dumping the powder straight in my mouth and chasing it with water. It tatse like you are eating sweet tart powder. Also, no chemical or foul after taste which is huge. Just crisp and refreshing. Mixability is perfect with shaker or spoon. I even just dumped water on top of it and swirled it around in a cup and it still mixed fine. There was barely ever any residue I could find on the bottom.

    Ingredients: 8.5/10 I like the fact that ConDense is a bare bones pre workout, and by bare bones I certainly do not mean not effective. Quite the opposite. I enjoy the fact that it does not have 8,000 random junk ingredients and fillers, only a few proven ingredients. Caffiene and Beta Alanine are tried and true staples that work great, while the more exotic Nitrates take it to another level. People seem to forget just how good of a stim Caffiene can be stand alone. I do feel Vitamin C should have been added to the formula due to the Nitrates. COP would also have been a great addition for added strength and endurance. However, those are some of my only gripes with this product and they are nothing major. I think the best part of the simplicty of this formula is how versatile it becomes. I have so many ideas for stack with this pre workout that im going to mess around with on the tub I purchased: ConDense + Hemavol, ConDense + Caffiene Free Focus XT, ConDense + EC, added 1,3 etc. The possibilities are endless and at the base of it all is the very solid ConDense formula.

    Pumps/Endurance 9.5/10 - This was by far the best part of ConDense. I am typically a much better explosive strength person. I excell in low reps, sprints, etc. while everything endurance related has always been a struggle for me. Due to injuries and slowly adjusting back into things, I have been doing a great deal of endurance and high rep work. My log will show a good bit of burn out sets, very high reps, and even cardio. I can say that with complete certainty that Condense significantly improved my endurance and stamina in the gym. I would not become fatigued nearly as fast and was able to grind out more and more reps. Pumps were great as well. I never have trouble achieving pumps or vascularity, but ConDense definitely made both much better. The pumps got to the point that they were painful every workout. Many times before legs I would have to cut my ConDense dosage back because I would get too pumped. ConDense, Hemavol, and UR Spray are in a class of their own when it came to pumps for me. To put ConDense in a category with those two products is speaking volumes if you ask me.

    Energy/Focus: 8/10 - Nothing too fancy to say here. 200 mg of caffiene is 200 mg of caffiene. This is not a bad thing by any means. Like I mentioned earlier, people forget how good a mild dose of caffiene can be. Just good, clean energy and focus with no crash or jitters. And if you are a stim junky or dead tired, there is no slump that a double dose (400mg of caffiene) can't pull you out and will give you that jacked up experience if you so desire. I love the versatility this creates. You can use it as a replacement to coffee, use a tiny bit when you want a mild boost, or double dose it for that extreme "let's go flip over cars in the parking lot" energy. The flexibility this creates to combine with other stims and preworkouts is geat. Simple, yet very effective.

    Value:9/10 Hard to beat the value of ConDense. at one scoop a workout it should last you around 2 months and double dosing it around a month. At just over $20 bucks a bottle, it is a steal.

    Overall: 8.8 - Overall, I am very pleased with ConDense. It truely stands above the pack and that is coming from somebody who has used just about every preworkout. It is also one of the few preworkouts I have purchased an additional bottle of. The versatility and value combined with a very effective formula will ensure it will remain in the rotation for a long time to come. Great taste, great pumps, great endurance, great energy, and great value. Tough to beat if you ask me.

    I want to thank AaronJP1 and for giving me my first ever chance to log a product and I hope that my log lived up to your expectations. Also a big thanks to Airborne42, bcazo, azmidlyf, and everone else who followed this log I really enjoyed it and hope ya'll follow my testify log as well. If you have any suggestions or comments for my future logs, please let know.

    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.
