  1. Random Friday Notes:

    Off day btw... I need to switch my terminology from Day to Work Out.

    Things are going well and my mindset has improved dramatically.

    Here's to hoping I drag my ass to the gym tomorrow morning.

  4. 2.8.13 – Workout 5

    Fasted workout. LAME… What should have been about an hour and 15 minutes took about an hour and 35. Definitely noticed that when running on empty that the recovery time between sets is much longer. Thankfully this will only happen on Saturday mornings…

    Energy – DAMN! On an empty stomach Condense hits hard and fast. Made me feel like this…



    A bit nostalgic this AM.

    Focus – This is where Condense shines for me. With it, I am able to plow through my workouts and challenge myself each time I walk into the gym. Just a feeling that nothing will stop me which has me pushing harder each time.

    Pump – Nothing much to write home about here. Feeling it in my back, tri’s, and forearms. Nothing new though.

    Note: The past few years I’ve stayed away from dumbbell presses for the most part. Kind of nice to hit a new PR on inclines this morning. Strength is returning.

  6. 2.12.2013 – Workout 6

    Went light weight with high reps this afternoon to try and get a solid pump. I failed…

    Energy – Great as is has been since I first began. Still slowly ramps up and levels off. Able to get through my workouts with not really thinking about it.

    Focus – As intense as I started. Loving it. Staying focused has allowed me to play around with my routines, lifts, and the weight I am moving. I am not second guessing whether or not I should be in a set routine, going heavy or light, what I could be doing outside the gym, etc. It’s very refreshing and I am having fun just kind of playing around and mixing it all up.

    Pump – Just not there today. It’s been minimal the past few workouts but today it seems like there was nothing. I figured that if I went light with high reps that I might be able to get something. I was wrong. Going to try again on Thursday and possibly Saturday. If not, I am going to grab my weight belt and try for a super heavy week next week.

    Lift the fücking 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 like this new routine I'm following now from Layne Norton IIRC.

  9. 2.14.13 Workout 7

    Kind of a mixture of heavy/light with moderate to high reps.

    Energy – good stuff. It’s been 4 hours since I washed back my two scoops and I’m still rolling.

    Focus – still amazing. Being focused is definitely allowing me not to dwell or second guess what I am currently doing in the gym. Walk in, get to work, and walk out.

    Pump – Again not much. Got a bit in my shoulders, bi’s, and back for a bit but it quickly died down.

  10. 2.16.13 Workout 8

    Much better than last Saturday’s fasted workout.

    Energy – got all the way through my workout without missing a beat.

    Focus – Intense and loving it. Pushed myself even harder than anything else the past few weeks. And this was in a fasted state.

    Pump – Disappointed at the moment as there hasn’t been much. Even as I mix things up with light weigh/ high rep or moderate and heavy weight / normal to low rep, I can’t seem to get much of a pump.

    *Note: Couple more weeks of full body and I should be back into the swing of things in the gym. Now if I could only find a new job…

  11. 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…

  12. 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.

  15. Skeptic takes on Purus Labs Condense!


    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.

  20. 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.

  21. 2.28.13 Workout 12

    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.

  26. 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!

  29. 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.

  30. 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.
