    JonRubio's ConDense VLOG


    Thanks to Grambo and everyone at Purus Labs for giving me an opportunity to log ConDense!
    This will be a video log, and I will be updating it every time I use this product.
    Every video will be descriptive including how well hydrated I am, macro nutrient intake prior to workout, overall energy/stress levels, etc. This will ensure that anyone is to purchase this product can duplicate certain strategies I implemented prior to using ConDense.


    PURUS LABS® CONDENSE™

    Rationale
    Condense™ is a novel approach to preworkout performance-enhancement designed to expand performance capacity, utilizing patent-pending nutrient technology and peer-reviewed, human- validated, orally efficacious dosages, rather than merely and temporarily increase acute performance as with most short-sighted, stimulant-laden products currently on the market. Purus Labs® has revolutionized the preworkout category, once again, by actually achieving what other companies only claim: that is, eliciting extreme vasodilation through truly enhancing endogenous nitric oxide production. This, in turn, causes a cascade of welcomed anabolic and physiologically enhancing benefits to athletes of all cloth through enhancing blood-flow, heightening substrate utilization (i.e. better nutrient absorption), preserving ATP stores, propelling oxygen delivery to myocapillaries, and reducing overall exercise oxygen cost allowing you to handle greater workloads (e.g. more weight) and exercise longer before exhaustion (e.g. more reps).
    CONSTITUENTS


    NITRATENE™
    Inorganic nitrate found in beets, spinach, etc…proliferates nitric oxide through a novel biological pathway, nitrate>nitrite>nitric oxide, converted through entero-salivary circulation as opposed to the more traditionally known arginine>NO synthase>nitric oxide pathway. Although nitrate, as related to exercise performance, is still in its infancy, the results on performance parameters are nothing short of salivary (pun intended)!

    Nitrate has been shown to be a powerful aerobic and anaerobic ergogenic aid by reducing the oxygen cost of exercise, translating into lower perceived exertion and/or a greater maximal workload capacity. Astonishingly, the increased work comes without an accompanying increase in blood-lactate, meaning your muscles actually become more energetically efficient. This increase in mitochondrial efficiency (P/O ratio) is due to the reduced cost of ATP (muscular currency) to produce muscular force.

    BETA ALANINE
    This non-proteinogenic amino acid is a constituent of muscle-carnosine (beta-alanine-l-histidine), however, myocarnosine content has been shown to be significantly increased through beta alanine supplementation alone. Carnosine, which supplemental beta alanine enhances the muscular concentration of, helps stabilize muscular pH levels by buffering the hydrogen ions produced through intense exercise. Intuitively, this stacks nicely with nitrates as they synergistically work through different modalities to achieve the same endurance effect.

    BETAINE ANHYDROUS
    Betaine, or trimethylglycine, is an interesting compound found in beetroot juice as it serves as an osmolyte (protecting cells against dehydration), an antioxidant, and a methyl group donor serving to lower homocysteine levels. Human performance studies involving betaine found it increases power and force performance measures amongst trained individuals and was elucidated through these exercise protocols: bench press throw, bench press force, squat force, and vertical jump power. Another larger study concluded betaine aided in high intensity anaerobic training, allowing individuals to achieve more squat repetitions at 75% of their 1-RM with more repetitions achieved at =90% peak power.

    1,3,7-TRIMETHYLXANTHINE (CAFFEINE)
    Obviously, caffeine is a widely used and highly efficient aerobic and anaerobic performance stimulant. Its effects are as highly acute and pronounced as they are vast. Caffeine improves cognition and alertness, antagonizes adenosine receptors, inhibits phosphodiesterase (PDE), increases epinephrine/norepinephrine/dopamine release, and enhances intracellular sodium/potassium pump activity.

    ELECTROLYTES
    Ionized salts are abundantly found within our bodies and serve the chief primary function of maintaining specific concentration and charge balances across cell membranes. We include the electrolytes sodium, potassium, and chloride within Condense™ to aid in maintaining optimal hydration status and blood volume during strenuous physical activity thereby blunting a rise in cortisol and quickening recovery.

    Summary
    As with all Purus Labs® products, only ingredients with human, orally-efficacious research are used, AND each ingredient is included at the research-validated dosage. Utilizing patent-pending Nitratene™ nutrient-technology, Purus Labs® continues to revolutionize the sports nutrition industry and offer consumers a light in an industry shrouded in darkness.

    Wish me luck guys and subscribe!

    FINAL REVIEW

    Taste
    Tastes exactly like what it says. It literally tastes as if you were to bite into a Granny Smith Apple. Doesn't taste artificial at all even though some artificial flavoring is used.

    Endurance
    This is the reason why I would purchase this product again. Great endurance. Lactic Acid build up is virtually nonexistent when taking Condense. Muscles would literally just give out due to lack of ATP and would be virtually painless once the last rep was pushed. More less it felt as if my arms would just give out. With Condense I felt as if I could go for another 3-4 more reps than without Condense.

    Pump
    My favorite pump product to date, however, not the strongest pump out there. This pump is enjoyable and allows me to get a mind to muscle connection. Pump isn't painful at all unlike other ingredients like agamatine citrulline etc.

    Stimulant Effect
    All you honestly need to wake up. Doesn't have that WOW factor like Muscle Marinade will have to offer you; however, it does get the job done and wake you up.

    Focus
    Not a focus like Focus XT or a Nootropic, more like your so intune with your pump, its gonna motivate you to keep going and focus. Well at least thats how I felt.

    Other Notes
    Great addition to other preworkouts
    Not to stimmed up so it is usable at night
    Cheap
    Effective

    Final Score:
    8.5/10

    Just stay tuned and I'll be as detailed as possible bro. I'm optimistic about this product even though I more look toward preworkouts with endurance/focus ingredients COP, Citrulline, Huperzine A, Glucornolactone etc. Thanks for the support!

    Day 5



    Notes:
    2 scoops gave me GI issues unfortuately. Never got to finish the complete workout however I did finish my shoulder workout. Tommorow I will try taking 1.5 scoops and hopefully it will have the same results as the previous days. Pumps and endurance remains to be consistent.

    Kinda liking this straight to the point everything explained in the video log. Makes it a hell of a lot easier to navigate and keep track of everything. LOL.
