Hywelbane sets PR's with AminoD, D-Pol, and Slinshot
 
Special thanks to Purus Labs for the giveaway! I received AminoD (strawberry limeade), Slinshot, and D-Pol.

I'll be logging my results with AminoD and Slinshot due to already having logged a Condense and D-Pol stack as shown here:

First thoughts:

Still loving the sleek design of the containers.

You know exactly what you're getting and how much.


About me (copied from previous supplement log with minor changes):
I've been lifting since I was about 11 years old. Started out of my own accord just using a 25 pound dumbbell. From there I went on to football and eventually high school powerlifting. I've been extremely hooked since.

Training Log: http://muscleandbrawn.com/forums/showthread.php?t=13687 Though I will be posting my workouts in here as well.

Training split: My workout consists of 4 days: Bench, Deadlift, Squat, OHP. Not always in that order. Currently doing high volume and dropping reps/sets on main lifts when I stall.

Goals: To be as strong as possible for me, and looking good while doing it isn't a bad thing either.

Current Lifts:
Bench: 335x3

Squat: Not sure on max but previous week: 315x 8,8,10
Rack pulls below knees (can't do deadlifts in my gym): 405 5x5
OHP: 205x1

Weight: ~196

Criteria for Slinshot/AminoD:
Slinshot
*Not sure on this, maybe Randoja can chime in and help me create some standards.

AminoD
*Taste
*Mixability
*Endurance/Recovery

for slinshot, if you're aiming for a maintence diet you could commend on recompping effects. If you're bulking I guess you could comment on whether a higher % of the weight you gain is muscle (or less fat mass).

Day 1
 
Took slinshot with a very high carb/sugar breakfast that usually makes me feel extremely lethargic and slow. Immediately noticed that this feeling did not hit me like usual. It felt like any other meal.

AminoD:
Taste: 6/10 Strawberry limeade. Not really sure where to put the taste. The product smells wonderful, but at 8oz it was much too strong. Added 16oz just to be safe and it was very light. I thought about using 12oz next time, but as the workout went on it became a bit too sweet for me. 20oz. next workout.
Mixability: 9/10 A few seconds of shaking and there were no particles left.
Endurance/Recovery: 8/10 Besides being pumped out of my mind I was able to recover much better than normal. I'm going to have to give the pumps to D-Pol as it's been a week since I last ran out. Other than that I took about 60 seconds of rest between my sets instead of the usual 90-120.

Workout:
Bench: +20lbs, -1 set
265x8
265x8
265x8
265x8 butt came up a little on the last one.

Only did 4 because my chest was pumped up harder than it's been in a very long time.

CGBP: +20lbs on first set
185x12
185x12
185x12

DB Bench: +5lbs, -3 sets
90x10
90x10

Chest was too pumped to carry on.

Rolling tricep extensions: +2.5lbs
35x10
35x10
35x10

Tricep punchdown: +5lbs
52.5x12
52.5x12
52.5x12

Chest was so pumped that my exercises were difficult to complete.
Will be taking bench down to 4x6 for a few weeks now.

Good idea. I'll probably do both. Planning to cut after I hit 200.

Strong work still. Keep smashing.

Right on bro, thanks again for logging. With slinshot also, you should feel less bloated after large carb meals, and get a bit of a pump a while after eating.

Not a problem! It's the least I can do for a company with solid products.
Definitely noticing less bloat, not really a pump, but I'm also noticing I'm not feeling like I'm getting sugar spikes after my high carb meals.

Day 2
 
Not too much to report. Slinshot is so far pretty amazing. High carb meals usually bloat me to the point of feeling sick with the amounts I'm eating to hit 200 pounds. Slinshot has taken away this inconvenience and eating more is easier without fear.

Yeah buddy, Slinshot is a staple of mine.

Day 3
 
Slinshot is still amazing. No carb bloat at all! Awesome stuff.

AminoD:
Taste: 8/10 Found the sweet spot. I thought it'd be lower, but 20 ounces is perfect.
Mixability: 9/10 Second day of AminoD and it's one of the easiest mixing aminos I've ever used.
Recover: 9/10 Added weight all around on a leg day. Not just any leg day, but a morning leg day. I'm usually dragging quite a bit if my leg day has to be in the morning, but today was quite pleasant. Quick recovery between sets without feeling like I'm being run down.

Squat: +20lbs
335x8
335x8
335x10

Leg Press: +4 plates on first set, +2 plates on last 3
12 plates
14 plates
14 plates
14 plates

Sitting Calf Raises: +20lbs
110x12
110x12
110x12

Leg Curls: +15lbs on first and second set
95x8
110x8
110x8

Leg Extensions: +15lbs on last 2 sets
190x10
205x10
220x10

And I've been doing all of my leg work without knee wraps so far.
