    2.19.13 Workout 9

    Not moving very well today. I keep all my stress in my lower back and it snapped this weekend… I had to make some minor adjustments to my routine today. At the very least, I did get my workout in and hit 3 new PR’s. Strength is up and I am feeling very solid and dense lately.

    Energy: Still on high. As I am lifting heavier and rest between sets is longer, the energy to cruise through my calorie deficient workouts is great.

    Focus: Intense. I love it.

    Pump: Still a disappointment in the department. Not sure why…

    2.21.13 Workout 10

    Feeling good today and not as sore as I thought I would be after Tuesday’s workout.

    Energy: Still rolling quite well after 10 workouts. Not much in the way of a noticeable drop off.

    Focus: Loving it.

    Pump: Just not there… Going to cruise up to 3 scoops starting with my next workout.

    You wanting to increase due to the pumps? I honestly see no reason to especially with the caffeine amounts.

    Obviously more Nitrates = more pumps though.

    For me personally nitrate pumps from Dpol and Condense come over time as it builds up in the system and not immediate pumps like some ingredients may give (Agmatine, Creatine in some, Arginine, CM).
    One reason I don't push it as a major pump giver. The pumps are different than others, at least in my case.

    Just food for thought.

    I'm definitely stim-tolerent so the 600 mgs isn't going to phase me....

    Now diet, that is probably the culprit. It's changed drastically since last summer as I am only taking in about 2,000 - 2,500 kcals a day. Of that, it's only about 800 - 1000 pre-workout. Thanks for pointing that out Gram. I'll have to decide if I want to switch up my meals to see if that may have an effect. Though I highly doubt that I will. It's taken me 6 months to have my body adjust to living and working out with the deficiency.

    Overall, I'm very pleased with the energy and focus that Condense has provided so far. If they maintain their high levels the next few weeks, along with the wonderful crisp apple flavor, I can see Condense becoming a new favorite.

    2.23.13 Workout 11

    Not a bad workout for being sleep deprived, fasted, and still feeling the minor effects of the Knee Deep’s Simtra 22’s that were pounded last night.

    Energy: Everything that was to be expected. Condense is still on point in this department; ramps up and you’re on cruise control for the next few hours.

    Focus: This is where Condense really shines for me. Without the level of focus that is provided, my mind would be darting in all sorts of directions while dwelling on work… Thankfully I’m able to keep that stuff out and really concentrate on my lifts.

    Pump: Now that I know that diet can have an effect on what pump Condense should provide, I’m just going to roll with it though I am disappointed that it’s fallen off in this category for me.

    Note: Strength has steadily been increasing and I am feeling a lot more dense/solid each day. Good to be back in the gym. I am planning on revamping my workouts starting next week. Hopefully Condense will continue to perform since this is about the time other pre-w.o.’s have started to level off.

    Going to keep this short. Dosed my two scoops 20 minutes before I hit the gym and SHAZAM! I was in total overdrive mode. Energy and focus were out of control and in a good way… Tasmanian Devil style. Completely wrecked back, hams, and traps in under an hour.

    3.2.13 Workout 13

    Another Saturday morning fasted workout. Impressed that Condense has yet to really let me down!

    Energy: Again, fasted. And again, spun out of my mind in a good way. Rocked bi’s and tri’s with nothing in my tank. Good stuff.

    Focus: I love the focus on Condense. It rates a very high second to PP’s Drive without the insomnia!

    Pump: HolyWTF!24”pythonsBatman. Hulk Hogan would be proud. Not really sure what’s going on this morning but the arm pump has been insane. This is the first time since workout 5 that the pump is there and it’s crazy.



    Got love a good Hulk Hogan abstract pre-match rant!

    3.5.2013 Workout 15

    Whole family has been sick… One way or another I’ve been fighting it off and have yet to succumb to the crud. Unfortunately, I’m not feeling 100% but was still amped up to get to the gym this afternoon.

    Energy: Good stuff even while not feeling normal.

    Focus: Pushed through workout with no issues.

    Pump: Shoulders feeling large and in charge this afternoon.

    3.9.13 Workout 16

    Ate a bit of veggie pizza this morning pre-workout. Figured the carbs would be good to get the day rolling.

    Energy: So so. Family has been sick and I think I am winning the fight against it. Overall it wasn’t bad, just not as good as it has been. Stupid flu bug going around...

    Focus: Loving it.

    Pump: Oh yea! Arms again this morning and definitely feeling it.

    Note to reps: Wondering if there is something within Condense that would have an effect on mood? I’ve noticed that I feel more level headed in the gym lately. In the past I would go in with how I wanted things to go and if they didn’t, I would get pissed. Now things just seem to roll off me and I just go with the flow. Maybe it’s just how focused I am but I’m curious to hear what you have to say.

    Sorry, busy week. I love educational politics…

    Anywho this will be my last entry. Look for a final review for Condense soon.

    Energy: As usual it was on spot this morning. Burned through my workout with ease.

    Focus: Still there and still extreme. Love it.

    Pump: Just not able to really build on the past few weeks.

    Overall good stuff. Thanks to the reps for allowing me to check out Condense. Being the skeptic I am, I would give the stuff two thumbs up and would use it again.

    Condense 4/5

    Condense is definitely one of the better pre-W.O.’s on the market and deserves to be mentioned in any discussion. Props to Purus Labs for putting something together that does not diminish over time.

    Energy – 5/5 – After 17 workouts, the energy was just as intense with each workout. I would dose 10 minutes before a workout and could feel it ramp up. Then it was like I was on cruise control throughout my workouts and a few hours afterwards. Nice part was that it was clean and no crash.

    Focus – 6/5 – This is what I loved about Condense the most because my mind has a tendency to wander when I’m in the gym. This time around, I felt no wandering and loved it. The only other supplement that I could get this level of focus on was Primordial Performance’s Drive. Just this time around there was no insomnia…

    Pump – 1/5 – If you’re looking for a pump with your pre-W.O., I did not experience much in this department. It was inconsistent to say the best. Some workouts it was there, others it was not. Diet may play a part in this but I wouldn’t hold my breath.

    Taste – 5/5 – Crisp Apple is where it’s at. Fruit Punch is the god father of flavors but it’s so over used that it tastes like $hit. A little on the sour side but I like that. If I was still drinking vodka and still in college, I would want to experiment with mixing the two… F*ck Red Bull and Jägermeister shots, I would be down for a Condense and Vodka shots any day.

    Mixabiltiy – 5/5 – I was impressed here. Though when I added water, I saw little flavor flakes floating about, I always assumed that there would be a little grit. There wasn’t any. I like not having to chew anything I drink.

    Overall, this is yet another solid product by Purus Labs.

    Awesome review! I fell in love with condense after my last log. Had used MM for a long time but never thought to use condense because I didn't think it could get any better then MM.....I was wrong

    Most definitely. I have two tubs of some other crap I need to down and then I'll be picking up another Condense just to be able to drink Crisp Apple instead of Fruit Punch! Love me some focus and some tasty flavor!
