Mmm... Rice crispies.
I have a similar problem with cardio and my /IT band. Hurts like hell and I usually can't run for a few days.
Heavy squats kill my lower back and hips. My form is great and my reps are slow and controlled not fast and jerky. I lowered the weight and it took a couple weeks but the pain went away.
Pre: High Volume and LIV(AEN Fatburner)
Since I always have hard time feeling my Tris getting sore, I started with them first, then worked backwards to db presses.
All 5 sets SS w/ pushups till failure
Rope Pushdowns concentrating on a nice squeeze on the outer movement
SS W/ Cable Flys high position
10x40 <---- Wanted to go higher, but was feeling it in right shoulder while moving cable to start position
Incline DB Presses: All presses done with only rest coming from switching DBs
I didn't track all these in phone, but pretty sure that was my 10 sets. Lower weight, high volume, low rest. Nice deep stretch movement.
Flat DB Press: Again only rest came from switching DBs
I think with the 5 sets of pushups in there I got quite a bit of volume.
Friday Notes: Chest and tris were pumped like crazy again.
-Recovery was awesome again. Some may say it's because I'm doing lighter weight. But I have done these workouts before and PF3 honestly seems to cut my soreness in half
Fat 105g 42%
Pro 203g 36%
Carb 116g 21%
Pre High Volume and LIV
Bent Over Rows: Only rest while changing weight
Think I forgot to track a set, should have been 10 lol
Alternating Curls: Man in june I did 90lbs easily for 5 reps. Wish I could diet and keep strength real high
These were done running rack, with least amount of rest I could handle
10x35 5 sets PF3 and High Volume honestly makes a huge PUMP!
Straight Bar 21s:
3 sets wanted to see if biceps would explode lol
Notes: PF3 is nearly done now. I will use up last little bit, and have my final review coming.
- I have been so busy lately that I noticed, I have missed a lot of movements. I need to follow a strict routine.

That's a lot of volume, and I'd argue that the weight isn't that low, especially with limited rests and the low calories you're consuming. Looks good, CubsFan!
Sunday was off day: Watched the Bears suck against the Saints UGH!
Monday: I was planning on going to gym, then I ended up sitting on couch trying not to Vomit all night.
Not sure if it's the stomach flu people at my work have had(I never threw up, so hope not), or maybe my recent change in diet.
I have been keeping my calories between 2100-2300 since last thursday with 200+g protein and carbs only coming in around 15-20%

I guess I'm lucky...my pro stays at .75g per pound, no problems thus far
I usually get in about 1k calories at dinner
Tues: Slight sore throat and stuffy nose. Stomach still a little uneasy. Considering that at least 15/45 people at my office have had sick days in the last week, I'm hanging in there.
Felt Blah, but headed to gym anyways
PF3 Pre/Intra about 1 scoop left
Pre: Tried a sample of White Flood Reborn, watermelon flavor was amazing. Profile didn't wow me. I sure wouldn't mind a sample of Gameday Blue Bomp-Sicle hint hint lol
Was going to do some leg presses/leg work, but gym was packed and just about every thing I was looking for was being used
All sets done with as little rest as possible.
Wide Grip Pulldowns:
Reverse Pec Dec:
3x10 100lbs Slow negative, and 2 sec squeeze
Wrapped it up at this point. Breathing was difficult due to stuffy sinuses
Notes: I have a pretty sharp pain in trap today. Maybe wife will give me massage later..........Yeah Right!
- One thing I have neglected to mention is the Fruit punch flavor of PF3 stays flavorful, even when adding more water intra. I had overlooked that aspect.

Pure PF3 Final Review:
Candy Grape 10/10
Candy Grape tasted amazing. So 2 flavors I usually don't care for Grape, and Fruit punch. However, MAN has nailed the flavors. When us loggers started PF3 we all were trying to figure out what childhood candy Grape PF3 reminded us of. It was definitely a Pixi Stix/Chewy Sweet Tart. Best grape supplement I have ever had.
Classic Fruit Punch 9/10Fruit Punch. So a little background. I almost always stay away from Fruit Punch drinks because the first time I ever drank, and me and my buddies were all getting sick, it was Fruit Punch koolaide and Gin. Yup back in the Snoop Dogg Gin and Juice days, with so much drama in the LBC, it's kinda hard being Snoop D O Double G... err sorry I veered off. Back to Pure PF3 this was first fruit punch product that I enjoyed. In fact for Intra use, I preferred it over Candy Grape because I could add water to my shaker, and it did not dilute as fast.
Mixabilty: 7/10, 9/10 if you have time to stir it into waterRecovery. Period. End of review. If you followed my log, you know that I like to mess around and do high volume, light weight. Although sometimes my light weight seems higher than other peoples moderate weight. Not bragging, I'm just 300 lbs and have always been able to gain muscle really fast. I am jealous of those of you who can lose weight fast, and have abs. Don't let me catch you at the beach showing off lol. I can say without a doubt (Here come the negs) PF3 cut my recovery time down to nothing. I could have easily doubled my volume.
I usually like to just drop my powder into a shaker cup, and shake it up. With PF3 this creates a foam that does not like to go away lol. If you drop the powder(Candy Grape) into the shaker and swirl, you get a candy like goo ball. I ate this once, it puckered my face off. The best way to mix PF3 is to slowly pour the powder into a cup while stirring with a fork or knife. This makes the mixabilty perfect. I don't really care, just had to knock some points off for inconvenience
Overall: 8/10It tastes great, it mixes good once you get used to it, and the RECOVERY is amazing. The only reason I didn't rate it higher was price. That is a personal opinion. I have a lot going on in my personal life, and PF3 at my body weight using 3 scoops would get very pricey. If my wife would not kill me, I would run 2 tubs a month.
Other notes:I could tell that PF3 helped with the uptake of my pre-workouts. I was using the same pre that I was already familiar with, and when taken with PF3 I noticed a more pronounced pump. I assume it had to do with digestion, and shuttling the products I was using.
Vascularity. So at 300lbs I usually don't see many veins, however in the mornings I was noticing my forearm veins were more visible, again possible uptake of nutrients etc? IDk I
great review bro. definately good to hear it.
Thank you for the detailed and honest review! Hopefully you are in the process of buying more; you wouldn't want to have to work out without it again, would you? Unless you like DOMS...
