Default Muscle Marinade. Condense. Brute and Purus is a beautiful thing

Today begins my logging of Purus Lab's Pre workouts. I've had good luck with Muscle Marinade in the past, but it has been a couple years since I've tried it. Time to fuel some mega PRs.



As you can see, they have taken the forefront of the supplement table. Some would call it a dinner table, but please, I have my priorities straight.

A big thanks to Randoja for hooking me up with this, and all the folks at Purus Labs. They even threw in a nice shaker. This is going to be good.

I am curious. I tried D-pol once, but have not tried any of their other products. Nice to have a guinea pig to follow.

Day 1 with Purus was good. I used Condense today as I had to lift later in the afternoon and was doing reps today, nothing super heavy. I think I made the right choice.

No pumps, just good clean energy. The caffeine hit pretty hard and I did have to take a quick detour to the mens room, but thats normal. Only used half a scoop today, think I may bump it up to a full scoop next time.

Flavor - 10/10. Seriously, this stuff wasn't too sour, bitter, sweet, or bland. Best tasting PreWO I've tried
Mixing - 10/10 - a few quick shakes and a swirl and no grain in the shaker left
Energy - 8/10 - what I was looking for. Good energy, but not cracked out
Pumps - 9/10 - I don't like pumps, and this didn't give me any past what normal OHP work does
Strength - 7/10 - This seems more of an endurance enhancer than a 1RM thing, I like it
Endurance 9/10 - Only thing that worked better was old formula SuperPump 250 mixed with old formula Quake 10.0

I'm pretty well in love with this stuff. Nice work Purus. Muscle Marinade gets run Sunday up at BSM for strongman training.

Good start brother, simply put, Condense is for dynamic effort and Muscle Marinade is for max effort. I've mixed the two and had some killer workouts as well, you could try half scoop of each or whatever suits you. And you don't have to take creatine on MM days, it has 5g/serving.

Big lifting today and big things from Purus. I hit half a scoop of Condense about 30 minutes before lifting, then a scoop of Muscle Marinade 15 minutes before. Solid energy, set PRs on deadlifts, axle clean and press, and log press at BSM.

Muscle Marinade reflection below
Flavor - 8/10 - its pretty good, but the condense spoiled me a little
Mixing - 10/10 - a few quick shakes and a swirl and no grain in the shaker left
Energy - 9/10 -not cracked out, but good constant energy
Pumps - 9/10 - minor shoulder pump during log warm ups, but most of the work i did was singles or triples, so not much pump work there
Strength - 10/10 - 545 deadlift felt easy. what more must i say?
Endurance 10/10 - The supplement did not let me down at all here, just my own conditioning. 150 minute training sessions are grueling.

Side notes. Its a 4 hour drive back home from BSM, but I was awake and alert the whole drive. Muscle Marinade gives focus and alertness like nothing else.

Looks like good stuff Brute. I like the fact that the stuff doesn't stick to the bottom. A lot of them do.
