Misfit28 is Changing the Game with New MAN Sports Pure PF3

Page 3 of 8 First 12345 ... Last

  1. Update: 8/30/2013

    Whew, man! Leg day today was pretty brutal! Last night I took an extra serving of PF3 with 2 scoops of Fermented Leucine, just to see what happened. Not sure it helped much more, but I was only a little sore in my pecs this morning from yesterday's workout. Had my son's soccer practice last night, so I was running around a little and kicking the ball a lot (I am an assistant coach).

    I should have been more sore, IMO after yesterday. My triceps are not sore at all, even though the pump was crazy yesterday morning. This is a good sign.

    The REAL test will be to see how my legs and glutes feel in the morning I hate Squats, as I can never seem to get my form dead on. I should be able to move far more weight than this, but I try to go as far below parallel as possible. I stalled a while back, and I am trying to get it right. Still killed legs, though, with this workout:

    Barbell Squat:

    75 lb x 5 reps (+44 pts)
    95 lb x 5 reps (+50 pts)
    115 lb x 3 reps (+46 pts)
    140 lb x 5 reps (+68 pts)
    160 lb x 3 reps (+62 pts)
    180 lb x 4 reps (+81 pts)

    5/3/1 Bodybuilder C1, W3, D4: I swear I'm never gonna get the Squat form down perfectly. These felt fine until I got to the top set, and I felt weak out of the hole.
    This weight is pathetic.

    Leg Press:

    135 lb x 15 reps (+23 pts)
    135 lb x 15 reps (+23 pts)
    135 lb x 15 reps (+23 pts)
    135 lb x 15 reps (+23 pts)

    I have no idea the actual weight being used on these, so I just use the three plate amount. Really felt the burn this time. 60s rests between sets, constant tension.

    Leg Extensions:

    50 lb x 12 reps (+11 pts)
    50 lb x 12 reps (+11 pts)
    50 lb x 12 reps (+11 pts)
    50 lb x 12 reps (+11 pts)

    Really got a good quad burn. 60s rest between sets.

    Seated Leg Curl:

    60 lb x 12 reps (+12 pts)
    60 lb x 12 reps (+12 pts)
    60 lb x 12 reps (+12 pts)
    60 lb x 12 reps (+12 pts)

    Hamstrings almost cramped on me, unless I got up and walked a bit between sets. 60s rest between sets.

    Sit-Up:

    15 reps (+7 pts)
    15 reps (+7 pts)
    10 reps (+5 pts)
    15 reps (+7 pts)

    Man, these got my abs burning. First time to get three sets of 15, next goal is all four sets to 15. 90s rest between sets, this was done with a slight decline/incline.

    Seated Calf Raise:

    135 lb x 12 reps (+19 pts)
    135 lb x 12 reps (+19 pts)
    135 lb x 12 reps (+19 pts)
    135 lb x 12 reps (+19 pts)

    60 second rests. Haven't done calf work in a while, and you can tell Really got a good burn here.

    Stretching:

    5 min (+2 pts)

    Calves, hamstrings, quads, piriformis

    Foam Rolling:

    5 min (+9 pts)
    5 min (+9 pts)

    Before and after lifting: Quads/hip flexors, piriformis, IT band, Upper back

    Shoulder Dislocation:

    10 reps (+5 pts)
    10 reps (+5 pts)
    10 reps (+5 pts)

    Dosing still the same as yesterday:

    1 scoop of MAN Pure PF3 with 1 scoop of Pre-WO and 4 caps of Arachidonic Acid ~30-45 minutes pre-workout

    1 scoop of MAN Pure PF3 intra with 1 scoop of BCAAs.

    1 scoop of MAN Pure PF3 with 5g Creatine mono and 2 scoops of MAN Fermented Leucine post-workout right before my meal.

    Swirling is still going great, product is mixing with no clumping at all now. Very pleased!

    The flavor is definitely more Grape Pixie Stick now than the original Sweet Tart that I was saying. I think the smell reminded me of Sweet Tarts, but the Pixie Stick taste is dead on.

    I am loving this stuff so far, and as @brokenbottle mentioned, it seems to make you more regular. After looking at some of the studies, I can see why. The serum protein isolate is supposed to help with IBS, Crohn's, Leaky gut, etc. Maybe I have a mild form of one of these? I also just finished off some heavy duty antibiotics a week or two before this log, and my GI tract was not quite recovered, even with probiotics. Pure PF3 seems to have helped it along nicely.

    I have a three day weekend with Labor Day this weekend, but not sure how much rest I will actually get. My gym is closed on Monday, and next week is deload week on 5/3/1, so I should be fully recovered and ready to hit it hard the following week.

    Thanks for reading! I'll post small updates over my "recovery" weekend

    Dude, that is a lot of volume. I can't wait to see how your recovery is.

    I have same issues with squats, I can never concentrate and get a good form down lol. I tried practicing on this new thing we have at our gym. You may have seen it on that Shark Tank show if you ever watched it. It is a surf board, and you have to balance just like you were surfing. When doing squats on it, you can really tell where your weaknesses are.

    Thanks! Me too, my chest is a bit sore this morning from Thursday, but not as sore as it should be IMO.

    Another thing, my chest still feels almost "pumped" like right after my workout too. Very odd, but cool

    I haven't seen one of those, but it sounds awesome! I tried paused Squats for a while, but they got pretty horrendous after a while!

    Thanks! The weight is pretty pathetic for my weight and time lifting, but I try to make up for it through the volume and not resting much afterwards. I did this in ~45 minutes

    Thanks, man! Hit them wheels

  10. Took another dose of PF3 with two scoops of Fermented Leucine last night before bed.

    I have some DOMS today, mostly in my glutes. Not as bad as usual after leg day, though

    This stuff is pretty awesome for recovery!

    The biggest difference I noticed in recovery was when I ran out and was without PF3 for a bit, you really notice a drop off lol so it shows just how awesome this stuff is

  20. Yesterday was another two scoop day, as I didn't lift. Also no Fermented Leucine.

    I woke up this morning and my leg and glute DOMS was completely gone! I have not recovered this quickly from leg day since I can remember. It's pretty amazing!

    Yes it is!

    Most if the honey do's are done: I ended up doing some electrical work, plumbing and hanging shades. Might have a bit more electrical work before heading out to the final Nashville Sounds baseball game tomorrow.

    Here's a video review I did earlier about my first almost week using PF3.

  27. Update: 9/3/2013

    Alright, guys! Sorry for the delay in giving a real update!

    As I said, my weigh-in/BF% updates will occur on Thursday every week, so I will get to that in a few days.

    I've still been dosing the PF3 solo for the last three rest days. Once in the AM and once in the PM before dinner. Recovery has been phenomenal, and I almost didn't do a deload week this week because of it. However, because of the lack of fish oil lately (due to my ARA cycle), my joints need to break. On my deload, I am doing the prescribed 5/3/1 formula: 50% of my training max for my main lifts and cutting the weight by 50% on weighted accessories. On BW exercises (ab wheel, chins, situps, hypers), I will be cutting the volume in half. The idea is to just do active recovery and get some blood flow to the muscles. I'm keeping the same calories as before as well.

    I can't believe that placebo would affect DOMS as much as this has so far. This is absolutely the best recovery supplement that I have ever taken!

    On another note, I am still having the "regularity" and softening of stool from before. I am not having diarrhea per se, but definitely more loose than normal. Probably TMI, but I am thorough

    I am hoping that after this deload week that PF3 will be put to the test when I go back to my next cycle of 5/3/1 next Monday. I'm going to hit it hard and try to get far more than the prescribed reps! Here's a summary of my first deload workout. I will be working out for four days consecutively this week, which is another reason that a deload might be in order

    Standing Barbell Shoulder Press (OHP):

    45 lb x 5 reps (+49 pts)
    60 lb x 5 reps (+54 pts)
    70 lb x 5 reps (+58 pts)

    5/3/1 Bodybuilder C1, W4, D1 Deload week: Feels strange to be on Deload week again. Not feeling that beat up, but still taking the deload!

    Face Pull:

    25 lb x 10 reps (+17 pts)
    25 lb x 10 reps (+17 pts)
    25 lb x 10 reps (+17 pts)
    25 lb x 10 reps (+17 pts)

    Felt good on my shoulders. 60s between sets

    Standing Dumbbell Shoulder Press:

    12 lb x 12 reps (+42 pts)
    12 lb x 12 reps (+42 pts)
    12 lb x 12 reps (+42 pts)
    12 lb x 12 reps (+42 pts)

    Got a good burn in my delts today. Super light, so focused on form and rep speed. 60s between sets

    Bent-Over Rear Delt Raise:

    5 lb x 15 reps (+18 pts)
    5 lb x 15 reps (+18 pts)
    5 lb x 15 reps (+18 pts)
    5 lb x 15 reps (+18 pts)

    Good rear delt burn 60s between sets

    Dumbbell Bicep Curl:

    10 lb x 12 reps (+25 pts)
    10 lb x 12 reps (+25 pts)
    10 lb x 12 reps (+25 pts)
    10 lb x 12 reps (+25 pts)

    Hard squeeze at the top, slow reps. 60s between sets.

    Shoulder Dislocation:

    10 reps (+5 pts)
    10 reps (+5 pts)
    10 reps (+5 pts)

    Stretching:

    15 min (+3 pts)

    Spent a lot of time on this today. Hamstrings, triceps, lats, glutes/piriformis, quads, calves, pecs.

    Foam Rolling:

    5 min (+9 pts)

    After lifting and before stretching: back, piriformis, IT bands, quads

    Now that's what we like to hear. The issues you're having may be due to the betaine included in PF3, but should subside shortly.

    Killer work out!

    Thanks, man. I love and hate Deload weeks. They are necessary, but make me feel like I'm not accomplishing much, even though I really am

  30. Update: 9/4/2013

    Deload week continues. As I mentioned before, I hate deload week because of the lower work capacity, but love it for the recovery. I always feel more refreshed and ready to hit the weights the next week. I'm increasing the weights on everything but Bench this time, so should be a good cycle to test out PF3

    Tomorrow morning I will take some pictures as well as my weight and BF% measurements. I'm excited to see if anything happened in the last week. I know I feel like I have gained a bit of muscle.

    I have changed my dosing scheme just a bit, for Deload week anyway. I took only 1 scoop of PF3 post workout right before my meal. and I will take my second one right before dinner. Since I'm not pushing as hard, I figure I might not need as much. This will also spread out the doses a little more evenly, rather than having them bunched up in the AM all within a three hour window.

    Pre-workout I had four caps of ARA, 2 scoops of Pre-workout with BCAAs intraworkout.

    Post-workout was 1 scoop of Candy Grape Pure PF3, 2 scoops of Fermented Leucine and 5g Creatine mono.

    I did notice during my workout that I was a bit nauseated and seemed to have less energy. I will see if this continues tomorrow. I am used to working out fasted, so that shouldn't be an issue.

    So far, my muscles feel more full and my muscle recovery has been outstanding. Of course this week is not really much of a test, but it will ramp up again next monday.

    Here's my workout from today:

    Barbell Deadlift:

    135 lb x 5 reps (+66 pts)
    155 lb x 5 reps (+75 pts)
    185 lb x 5 reps (+92 pts)

    5/3/1 Bodybuilder C1, W4, D2: Deload week. Not much to say here

    Wide-Grip Lat Pulldown:

    55 lb x 12 reps (+23 pts)
    55 lb x 12 reps (+23 pts)
    55 lb x 12 reps (+23 pts)
    55 lb x 12 reps (+23 pts)

    Easy. Really felt the MMC on these for once 60s rest between sets. Weight halved for Deload week.

    One-Arm Dumbbell Row:

    20 lb x 15 reps (+36 pts)
    20 lb x 15 reps (+36 pts)
    20 lb x 15 reps (+36 pts)
    20 lb x 15 reps (+36 pts)

    Easy as well. Good lat stretch at the bottom. 60s rest between sets. Weight halved for Deload week.

    Hyperextension:

    15 reps (+5 pts)
    15 reps (+5 pts)

    Halved the sets bc Deload week. 60s rest between sets, good glute contractions.

    Ab Wheel (kneeling):

    10 reps (+18 pts)
    10 reps (+18 pts)

    Pretty easy, almost too easy. 60s rest between sets. Once again, sets halved for Deload.
