  1. Post Feel the Purple WRAAAAATH tingling sensation

    thanks to controlled labs for selecting me to try out their new and improved purple wraath product.

    My current workout log is over here:
    My log

    Current stats:
    Sex: Male
    Height: 6'
    Weight: 197

    I'm in a recomp phase, altho I was trying to cut previously. My body decided it wanted to lose bodyfat and grow muscles.

    The only supplements I'm on besides PW, are fish oil. I discovered trader joe's buffalo burgers (43g protein per patty) and am off of any protein bars/powders.

    Day 1

    Today was my cardio day, which I've trying out HIIT. I poured 1 scoop into 12oz of water, shook a few seconds. The foaminess went away pretty fast. I was taking xtend for the past 2 weeks, the foaminess of xtend lasts way longer then PW. I poured 6oz into cup and drank a 1/2 hr before workout. Within 10mins I felt a tingling sensation. As I write this, I'm still tingling. I went to my local 24hr fitness, hop'd on the stationary bike and warmed up for 4mins before blasting away at 10mins of HIIT. I do 30s bursts of normal and 90% of max speed. My legs were giving out near the end. I finished up with a 4min cooldown and finished the other 6oz of PW. The big test is tomorrow for my legs/shoulders day.

    I tried the previous version of PW (v2) before. It worked great the one time I did use it, but the taste was foul. That's what led me to try xtend.
    xtend isn't the best tasting grape either but it's more acceptable then PW(v2). The new PW(v3) is vastly improved and tastes better then xtend. PW leaves a lot less residual, not much at all compared to xtend. I would pour more water into my cup just to get the rest of the xtend residual! While the test isn't that grapey tasting, it's very sweet and the after taste is sorta like grape cotton candy. It's very easy to drink down.
    I look forward to tomorrow's workout

  2. good start to your log!

  4. purple wraath is one of the best supps out there. Honestly, people dont understand the importance of BCAA's. Nice log man!

  5. Day 2

    I mixed 1 scoop in 12oz of water, drank 1/2 30mins before workout and 1/2 right after.

    I gave it my all on the squat press today, I managed to finish thru that and lunges where as last week I couldn't. When I sweat, I feel tingling, almost like tingling sweat, a really weird sensation. My triceps are still sore from monday, I guess I overdid em on the dips. My shoulder press was pretty lame today. I feel worn out yet alive, a good feeling, surviving today's workout along with 5mins of HIIT.

    I'm thinking of upping the dose to 2 scoops, 1/2 before workout, 1/2 after. I was dosing 3 scoops of xtend before.

    plate loaded squat press 180x6,200x4(warmups), 320x10,340x8,360x6
    db lunges 40x10,50x8,60x6

    Thanks! It's even better that it's drinkable

  7. Day 3

    Today I poured 2 scoops into 16oz of water. I drank 1/2 at 11:10am, then the rest PWO. Drinking that much water before I work out, I have to go pee right before.

    Today is chest/tri day.
    incline db press 35sx6,45sx4 (warmups), 60sx10,65sx8,70sx6
    decline hammer strength 90x10,110x8,130x6

    i feel tired but great, doms set in from yesterday, not too bad, I was expecting worse

  10. Day 6 on Purple Wraath

    2 scoops, 1/2 PRE, 1/2 PWO
    What can I say but wow....I made it to 380 on the squat press, my legs were wobbly when done with all the leg exercises, I felt pretty worn out.
    I didn't expect to do much with the shoulder today, everytime I thought I couldn't finish a set, I was able to push on. It's like hidden strength/endurance just coming alive. I'm at the point I can barely raise the db's up just to be able to do the shoulder presses

  11. Day 7 on PW

    As I get higher and higher with the db weights, I'm finding my hands are tiring out too fast. If I wasn't taking PW today, I don't think I would've even managed 75x4 today. I don't much the tingles doing my workout anymore, or maybe I don't notice. I'm tingling as I eat my turkey sandwich. My legs are still sore from friday's killer session on em.
    Last Th I noticed some soreness from back, yet in an area I never felt behind. Then I realized, I'm finally growing some wings back there

    incline db press 45x6,50x4 (warmups), 65x10,70x8,75x4 (almost got to 6)
    db press 50x6x3 (hands were tired of holding db's)

    10mins HIIT bike 1min alternates

    I blasted my back today, so much I had nothing left when I tried pullups. I normally do pullups before lat downs etc, but someone was using the pullup station. My arms seem to run out of gas too fast and am not really doing too well on the 10,8,6 routine. Anyone have other ideas? I know they're beat up doing back exercises, they do get sore the next day. My biceps are 16" cold flexed. My chest is still hecka sore from monday.

    So far I've noticed more energy/ability to do more, the recovery, I'm not sure, I still get pretty strong soreness/doms.

  13. Day 9 on Purple Wraath

    The usual 2 scoop dosage. My biceps are pretty sore yet they also feel swollen almost in a pumped way. I kinda like this feeling. Friday I go for 400lbs on the squat press machine.

    PW gives energy, not noticable until you're lifting and it's like an invincible set of hands helping you power thru.

    how do you like the deadlifts?
    i think they are most painful but most rewarding excercise you can do!
    once i incorperated them into my routine i got noticably stronger on all my lifts.
