Default Getting Yolked with Purus Labs Noxygen

Thanks to Randoja and the Purus Labs team for this opportunity to try another product from an outstanding company.

Noxygen


Supplement Facts:

Serving Size: 1 Scoop (2.8g)
Servings Per Container: 40

Amount Per Serving
Carbohydrates 1.5g <1%
Sugar Alcohol (as HydroMax glycerine) 1.5
Sodium 65mg 3%
NO3-TMG Blend 740mg
Beet Root Extract (std. min. 70% betaine nitrate), Nitratene (FCC-grade sodium nitrate)

Initial thoughts: One of the smallest supplement containers I've seen before. The scoop is also tiny to accommodate for 40 true servings. Packaging is always sleek and eye catching.
The product itself is very clumpy which I assume is due to the sugar alcohol glycerine. This makes the product have a sort of moist feel to it. If you plan on using a funnel make sure you have a toothpick and a good 5 minutes to force this stuff through the hole.

Previous Logs:
Condense/D-pol http://muscleandbrawn.com/forums/showthread.php?t=15439
Amino-D/Slinshot http://muscleandbrawn.com/forums/showthread.php?t=16226

About Me: Currently coming off a cut where I went from 200 to 175. Going to very slowly bulk or maintain and try to get as much lean mass as possible while getting strong.

Current Lifts:
Bench: 315x4
Squat: 405x7
Deadlift: 485x3
All weighing either 176 or 177.

I'll be taking Noxygen about 30-45 minutes pre-workout mixed with some gatorade. Then 10 minutes before my workout I take Condense.

I'll mostly be judging Noxygen on pump and endurance.

Default Day 1

Pump: 9/10 Legs felt HUGE. They were pumped to the point of hardly walking after my main lift only.
Endurance: 8/10 Even though my legs were more pumped than they have been in a long time I still powered through the workout with ease.
Mixability: 10/10 Out of the container I was very skeptical that this stuff would even dissolve or if I'd be trying to swallow clumps. Thankfully it mixed almost instantly and after 2 or 3 shakes it was completely dissolved.
Taste: 10/10 It gets a 10 because there is absolutely no taste! Other flavorless products I've tried usually leave me with a bitter aftertaste. The only thing I may have noticed was it slightly changed the smoothness of my gatorade.

Not sure if Noxygen or placebo, but the pump was definitely more apparent today.

Workout:

Squat:
135x5 Got uncomfortably tight. No pain.
225x3 Felt a little twinge.
315x1 The heaviness of the weight helped me get even tigher, no pain.
365x1 Felt good.
Add wraps
405x7 Rep PR Once completing my target rep of 4 I realized this was the amount of weight where I should stop or my back would flare again. I went for a rep PR instead of adding weight for another 4 rep set.



3 second Pause Squats:
225x6
225x6
225x6
225x6 Held the last rep for a count of 9

Leg Extensions:
12x10
14x10
14x10

Single Leg Curls:
4x12
4x12
4x12

Planks:
BWx60seconds
BWx60seconds
BWx60seconds

Have been having a bit of back pain issues, nothing big, but watching it carefully.

Nice work bro, you are gonna like this stuff, especially stacking with condense. You are right on why its clumpy, no way around it. Mixes no problem though. Hope the back feels better. Damn, grats on the 405x7, challenge accepted haha.

I didn't think much of it being clumpy after I mixed it. Will add that above.
The back is feeling great. Once I get really really tight it doesn't bother me at all. Thanks, I've got the reps in me, now I've just gotta give your 479 a try.

Good to know it wasn't just in my head, my legs felt like they were going to pop.

I'm glad you guys mentioned the clumpiness. I wasn't sure if that was normal or not. After reading y'all's reports, I'm even more excited to give mine a try.

Default Day 2

Pump: 9/10 I usually barely notice a pump on OHP, but today it pumped my chest up to the point of veins popping out. Had to cut out some sets of accessories because I was so pumped I couldn't do the exercises right. Also last nights pump and fullness lasted for hours after completing the workout.
Endurance: 8/10 It makes me feel like I can go just a bit longer and I've got more power in the mid-end of my workouts. Even if I'm sweating buckets I don't feel as out of breath. Hopefully this effect stays.

Workout:
OHP:
135x10
135x10
135x5 Rep goal of 25

Push press:
155x2
185x5

Pullups:
BWx8
BWx8
BWx8
BWx8

DB Row:
100x8
130x8
180x8

Standing Alt DB Curls ss DB Shrugs:
40x10 ss 100x20
40x10 ss 100x20
40x10 ss 100x20

Overhead triceps extension with rope:
70x10
70x10
70x10

Fairly easy body/pump day. 2 rest days ahead and then I deload my main exercises starting on Saturday with deadlift. Will still train accessories with moderate intensity.
