Cutty Tries Purus Lab's D-Pol and Condense
 
Starting a new log to test Purus Lab's D-Pol and Condense as well as starting a new log after a long journey.

I did my first powerlifting competition on November 16th 2013 and it was a blast. I am coming back twice as hard as I realize I've been throttling back my gym work, even when I thought I was pushing hard.

Monday 11/25/13

I've been using MadCow by Stronglifts for a while, it's a linear progression 5x5 and I plugged in the numbers that I hit at my meet for my max lifts. My first session was already heavier than I was training and x5 instead of triples or singles. I'm going to grind this out to see where I go, time to go into full on robot mode.

Squats - 180, 225, 270, 315, 360x5 - Holy crap I've never done more than 1 over 335. Felt good, vids will come when I get on laptop to pull from my SD Card.. I tried recording from a camera and it filled up in 2 vids haha.

Bench - 125, 155, 190, 220, 250x5 - Again, holy crap.. I think 235 was the only weight I've ever done more than a single on. My shoulder was a little weird on bench today since I did squats too.. It felt unstable and you can see it in the video. I got 250x5 and I could have done more if I could have stayed in the groove.

Row - 135, 145, 175, 200, 230x5 - I was already worn out from squatting and then heavy ass benching but I did these well. I was ready to go after this.

Taking the supplements pre-workout sucks in the morning I should have given myself more time. I took the D-Pol first and then took Condense on my way to the gym. Could feel a little of the beta tingles, nothing too harsh.

Got to the gym and smashed the weights even when I felt like I couldn't.

Great Start Cutty ... looking for some new PRs ... :rockon::rockon:

Good luck, Cutty! I have had very good results on a 5x5, but I will be switching to a lower rep plan to get ready for my first competition. I will miss my 5x5 workouts, though.

Cutty 11-27-2013 01:26 PM

Thanks guys, rep PRs are every day it seems now. I stepped down for the comp from 5s to triples to singles and it was a great relief. Good luck with it!

Squat - 185, 225, 270, 270x5 - It was refreshing to have a lighter squat.

Deadlift - 265, 320, 370, 425x5 - Haven't done more than triples or singles in a while since prepping for the meet, but felt good. I didn't have too much left in the tank after the pulls.

Seated OHP - 95, 110, 125, 145x5 - My OHP has always been weak but I was happy with this set.

The pre workout isn't giving me a kick in the ass like the illegal DMAA stuff did but it's doing a good job on keeping me going. 370 felt heavy on my pulls (doing conventional) and I was worried I couldn't do 425 but it really helped me chug along.

Upped the condense to 2 scoops and boy it made a difference. D-pol giving me hella pumps and condense is giving me the focus, energy, and drive to keep pushing. The weight seems like it's going up slower than it is but I think that's more conditioning related than it is anything. Overall really happy with Purus labs' products. We'll see where this goes!

Weight: 323.4 - Down 1.4 from last week and still eating like shit. Time to get on it and eat like I know I'm supposed to.

Squat - 185, 225, 270, 315, 360x5 - Felt good, looked good on video, would have liked it to have been a little deeper on a couple reps but I sank that last one good.

Bench - 135, 155, 190, 225, 250x5 - Felt good and strong, stronger than last week, a lot more controlled and shoulder wasn't hurting from squats yay.

Barbell Row - 135, 155, 175, 200, 230x5 - Easy.
