The D Stunner™ features an advanced stimulytic blend of with REV-PEA™ which supports a no crash, sustained energy experience.* REV-PEA™ is an advanced blend of energy and focus promoting phenylethylamines which support the release of epinephrine and norepinephrine, 2 powerful neurtransmitters.**
The stimulant blend also features N-Methyltyramine which aids in preventing the breakdown of supplemented PEA. To promote boosts in performance and nitric oxide levels, D Stunner™ utilizes GlycoCarn® which is supported by research to promote the production of nitric oxide for the muscular ‘pump’ during exercise.* The combination of 3,7-dimethylpurine-2,6-dione and N-Methyltyramine HCl presents a new age advancement in the pre-workout category as it aids in breathing capacity.* This advancement combined with Quercetin (Quercetin may boost aerobic performance through muscle mitochondria) may lead to the maintenance of oxygen uptake.*
I'm Brandon. I'm 25 years old. I've been lifting for about 2.5 years.
I'm a competitive powerlifter, and started training for meets right about one year ago.
Current PRs (assorted, because I do some rep work and variants)
Deads: 475 from the floor. 525 reverse band. 455 from 4" blocks.
Bench: 225 paused. 190x11. 225 floor press
Squats: 365. 315x8
In the past year I've spent some time running 5/3/1, wasted several weeks trying to run Westside, and also did Madcows 5x5.
I'm currently running a 10 week cycle of Brandon Lilly's Cube Method.
It's basically a template with a day for the squat, bench, and deadlift, and then an overhead day with some weak point work.
From week to week you rotate between speed work, repetition work, and max effort work for the big 3 lifts.
Friday will be my 3rd workout, and I'm liking it so far.
What I look for in a preworkout
Lately I've been training with fairly limited supplementation. I like to keep things simple and avoid spending a ton of money on extras, but I always keep a solid preworkout on hand.
A few things I need from a preworkout supplement:
Focus: I want something that is going to keep my dialed in without overstimming me
Energy: I love training, and I'm very passionate about what I do, but there are some days when life gets in the way and we all need an extra kick in the a$$ to get going.
No-Crash: I'm a busy guy, I have a 4 year old, a newborn baby boy, a boxer, and a fiance that I have to spend time with. So when I walk out of the gym, I need to be able to continue my life, not spend an hour or two coming down from stims and feeling like crap.
Decent Taste: I'm not unrealistic in my expectations, but I also don't want to choke down my preworkout every day.
Goals for This Log
Continue getting stronger. I'm bulking so this shouldn't be an issue
Hit a few PRs
Avoid missing weights-nothing takes a crap on my confidence more than missing a max effort lift
