For those of you here that know me and are partaking in the journey of this log I welcome you with a giant e-high five because you already know what to expect from my logs (hopefully)! And for those of you that don't... get ready because epicness is sure to ensue. I have never taken a Purus product in my life and when I saw Aaron's post in the promo section I figured I'd jump on it so I could finally see what all the chatter was aboutand DPOL. I'm definitely a preworkout junkie as I've already logged about 4-5 preworkouts in the past. This log would not be possible without Purus allowing me to log their product, so a big shout out and thank you to them and all the fine folks over at Purus for giving me the privilege to give these two outstandingly labeled products (no seriously the labels on these two tubs are gorgeous while not only conveying all the nutritional info they are intricately laced with some fancy design that is cool to look at)!
Height: 6'9" (read that again)
Weight: 252lbs (as of 9/11/2013)
Training Hx: 10+yrs ranging from Starting Strength to now currently 5/3/1
Diet: Current macros are set to maintain a caloric intake of 3500-4000 (250-300P/300-400C/100F)
HISTORY OF MY MAXES
BENCH: 320 (currently at 270)
DEADLIFT: 450 (current)
SQUAT: 355 (currently at 295)
OHP: 160 (current)
To boost up all my maxes with an end goal of hitting some marks by the end of 2013. Some of those maxes were made in my early powerlifting days and I haven't come close to them yet. The goal is to get my bench back up to 300 and my squat up to 315 AT LEAST. An OHP of 205 would be nice and if my deadlift goes above 500 I wouldn't be mad
™ is a novel approach to preworkout performance-enhancement designed to expand performance capacity, utilizing patent-pending nutrient technology and peer-reviewed, human- validated, orally efficacious dosages, rather than merely and temporarily increase acute performance as with most short-sighted, stimulant-laden products currently on the market. Purus Labs® has revolutionized the preworkout category, once again, by actually achieving what other companies only claim: that is, eliciting extreme vasodilation through truly enhancing endogenous nitric oxide production. This, in turn, causes a cascade of welcomed anabolic and physiologically enhancing benefits to athletes of all cloth through enhancing blood-flow, heightening substrate utilization (i.e. better nutrient absorption), preserving ATP stores, propelling oxygen delivery to myocapillaries, and reducing overall exercise oxygen cost allowing you to handle greater workloads (e.g. more weight) and exercise longer before exhaustion (e.g. more reps) .
Inorganic nitrate found in beets, spinach, etc…proliferates nitric oxide through a novel biological pathway, nitrate→nitrite→nitric oxide, converted through entero-salivary circulation as opposed to the more traditionally known arginine→NO synthase→nitric oxide pathway. Although nitrate, as related to exercise performance, is still in its infancy, the results on performance parameters are nothing short of salivary (pun intended)!
Nitrate has been shown to be a powerful aerobic and anaerobic ergogenic aid by reducing the oxygen cost of exercise, translating into lower perceived exertion and/or a greater maximal workload capacity. Astonishingly, the increased work comes without an accompanying increase in blood-lactate, meaning your muscles actually become more energetically efficient. This increase in mitochondrial efficiency (P/O ratio) is due to the reduced cost of ATP (muscular currency) to produce muscular force.
This non-proteinogenic amino acid is a constituent of muscle-carnosine ( -l-histidine), however, myocarnosine content has been shown to be significantly increased through supplementation alone. Carnosine, which supplemental enhances the muscular concentration of, helps stabilize muscular pH levels by buffering the hydrogen ions produced through exercise. Intuitively, this stacks nicely with nitrates as they synergistically work through different modalities to achieve the same effect.
Betaine, or trimethylglycine, is an interesting compound found in beetroot juice as it serves as an osmolyte (protecting cells against dehydration), an antioxidant, and a methyl group donor serving to lower homocysteine levels. Human performance studies involving betaine found it increases power and force performance measures amongst trained individuals and was elucidated through these exercise protocols: bench press throw, bench press force, squat force, and vertical jump power. Another larger study concluded betaine aided in high intensity anaerobic training, allowing individuals to achieve more squat repetitions at 75% of their 1-RM with more repetitions achieved at ≥90% peak power.
Obviously, caffeine is a widely used and highly efficient aerobic and anaerobic performance stimulant. Its effects are as highly acute and pronounced as they are vast. Caffeine improves cognition and alertness, antagonizes adenosine receptors, inhibits phosphodiesterase (PDE), increases epinephrine/norepinephrine/dopamine release, and enhances intracellular sodium/potassium pump activity.
Ionized salts are abundantly found within our bodies and serve the chief primary function of maintaining specific concentration and charge balances across cell membranes. We include the electrolytes sodium, potassium, and chloride within Condense™ to aid in maintaining optimal hydration status and blood volume during strenuous physical activity thereby blunting a rise in cortisol and quickening recovery.
As with all Purus Labs® products, only ingredients with human, orally-efficacious research are used, AND each ingredient is included at the research-validated dosage. Utilizing patent-pending Nitratene™ nutrient-technology, Purus Labs® continues to revolutionize the sports nutrition industry and offer consumers a light in an industry shrouded in darkness.

Athletes and exercise enthusiasts are constantly looking for methods to enhance exercise performance and to gain lean body mass. Of course, improving overall health in the process of physique development is also welcome. Although many dietary supplements are marketed for purposes of improving performance, , and health, few such supplements are actually supported by peer reviewed scientific evidence for effect in relation to the specific outcomes of interest. This is particularly true when considering the often paltry dosages of each ingredient included within the finished product. To address the need for a dietary supplement specifically designed to enhance exercise performance, to support gains in lean body mass (via increased circulating testosterone), and to improve overall health, PURUS LABS® has formulated a new product to address these areas of interest.
33% Increase in LH!
42% Increae In Free Testosterone!
23% Increase In ATP!
19% In Oxidative Phosphorylation Ration (Oxygen Sparing)!
