My wife has been fighting the same bug as me. Against both of our better judgements, She went to her doctor and sure enough, put her on an antibiotic, plus the follow up course of anti-yeast infection drug, since that's what happens to her each time she goes on one...fun times. :/

It's articles like this that help plant the seed that maybe one day I'll try my hand in PL comp....one day...down the road...
Woke up feeling sore today – yesterday’s session got me, it seems. I wasn’t taking no for answer though – managed to nab one PR for weight on bench. Still a bit off from my 300 goal, but on the way…

Back from the weekend with some updates. This time change business always throws me for a loop & the logs show it… My strength gains cut off abruptly this weekend. My sleep schedule was thrown off, along with having a crappier diet due to some social stuff. My shoulders are continuing to get stronger, but my big lifts tanked…just didn’t have any gas in the tank at all. Motivation was off & I just couldn’t get moving. My squat day felt OK once I got going (main lift #s down though), but todays chest session was pretty lame. The real bummer is I took my last scoop of d-pol this morning! I’ll be posting my final review shortly -

First let me give a big thanks to AaronJP1 for giving me this opportunity & to all the rest of the guys at Purus (Airborne42, Grambo, Doja) –
D-Pol powder Custard Crème Flavor
GI Compatibility – 5/5 – This is the make or break variable for me. Sodium DAA makes all the difference – not any issues at all from this.
Strength – 5/5 – What can I say…the PRs kept coming & coming. I stayed on the low side of maintenance cals thru this & kept moving up the weights. I woke up ready to attack the iron & attack I certainly did. Aggression was there, but it was a motivated aggression, as compared to an on edge feeling.
Pumps – 4/5 – The only reason I gave a 4 instead of a 5 is that I honestly couldn’t tell if the pumps ever stopped. I definitely see changes in the mirror, but the usual post workout pump I’m used to was nowhere to be found. I’m suspecting I’ll notice more as it goes out of my system - maybe I'll start deflating back, hopefully not … lol
Libido – 4/5 – I noticed more “on top of my game” feeling than straight libido boost – there was illness going thru my house most of this time, so that had to affect my mood somewhat. However, I’m feeling that another tub would change that a bit as the libido has been picking up a bit more this last week or so.
Flavor – 5/5 – Top notch!!! Custard Crème – A great diversion from the usual intense fruit flavors I’m used to with preworkouts or straight weird chemical tastes of powders. I mixed it with various PWOs, water & even OJ (on recommendation) – great taste all around. I even found myself looking forward to drinking this each morning
Mixability – 4.5/5 – Used mainly blender bottle & shaker cup – it mixed up 90% without any difficulty, but I was always left with a small amount of grit/powder at the bottle that took a 2nd swish to get out. I have no issue with this at all, but some might.
Overall: 4.5/5 - I wasn’t really expecting too much out of a solo DAA run – thinking this was going to be more of a testing period before my natty stack. I was quite pleasantly surprised with D-Pol. No GI issues from the start led to some nice strength gains throughout. The flavor is great & mixes well with just about everything. I liked it enough that I have since purchased 2 more tubs to go with 8weeks of ABE & EP coming up next month.
Once again – a big thanks to Purus! D-Pol powder is an A+ in my book!
I'll get some before/after shots up soon
