Jwood's Purus Labs Log
 
Received my stack of Muscle Marinade, d-pol, and slinshot the other day. I was out of town, so I started my stack today! Thanks again to purus labs for this opportunity. I will posting all my workouts and thoughts on the products in here.

A little background, I am a competitive strongman. I train in the gym 3 times a week, I do events 1 day a week. Conditioning on off days, depending how good I feel. I use a mix of Juggernaut, 5/3/1 and the cube method for my lifts. I came up with this combination on my own after using each program separately and taking what I like from each.

Starting weight is around 219-221 depending on the day. I am doing a very slow bulk, almost just maintaining weight. Pushing for brutal strength, and planning to compete again in the fall. The only other supplements I am currently taking are amino 1 intra workout, some fish oil and protein. Keeping everything the same as before and just adding this stack. I am really looking forward to this! Time to get strong as a bear.

So here goes!!

Sunday Events
Left on Wednesday to go to Virginia for a wedding, so I basically had a deload. This trip was full of drinking and not a lot of sleep. Kinda a college reunion, but I had so much fun. And felt good today. I am back on track and feeling healthy.

Farmers Walk
*all sets about 50-60 feet
120 each hand x 2
160 x 1
180 x 1
210 x 1
230 x 1
240 x 1
I am trying to make small jumps with farmers and each week moving up 10-20 pounds each week. Next week I will be back to where I was pre-injury. I plan to just keep moving up each week until I fly by previous PRs! The picks felt super easy today.

Standing OHP
95 x 8
135 x 5 x 8
Missed strict press last week so I did them today, instead of log.

Backwards sled drags
1 plate x 50 yards
*all other sets 30 yards
2 plates x 1
3 plates x 1
4 plates x 4
2 plates x a long one to take my sled back inside
This was good for conditioning and really finished me off.

This was a great session, but it was incredibly hot today. Temperature was around 94 when I started and only got hotter, but I was able to push through.

Took d-pol with my breakfast and also had a multi-vitamin. Starting to feel a little bit of an energy boost from the product shortly after taking it.

About 45 minutes later, maybe a little longer took muscle marinade. The fresh fruit flavor is really good. Not too sweet and mixes up very easily. Got a great energy increase from this stuff. Smooth energy, no jitters no tingling. Just good clean energy. Pumps are tough for me to judge on events day, so I will see how that goes tomorrow. I can say I had tons of energy the entire workout, even in the heat doing events. I am very happy with the first workout.

Took slinshot with my post workout meal which was a good mix of carbs and protein. Not expecting immediate results from this, so stay tuned for the long term effects of slinshot.

So far so good, stay tuned for more. Tomorrow is bench day!

Supps were great. D-pol gives me a boost and tons of focus. I am feeling very aggressive in the gym. Muscle marinade is a great product, I am getting good clean energy throughout my workout. Tough to say anything about slinshot yet. Weight was 221 , so far I love this stack.

Strong lifting man, glad your first impressions of the product are good.
