We did a mass/volume test vs. placebo (colored water) with 300% better mass (bicep) vs placebo

A study was undertaken to investigate the relative effects, on resting arm volume, of exercise as well as exercise supplemented with LG Sciences' new product, Anadraulic State.
The method chosen for this study was that of simple fluid displacement. An apparatus was devised consisting of a long (ca. 50 inch), fluidproof polymer tube having an inner diameter of six inches. The tube was fitted with an angled overflow chamber fitted with a ball valve. The amount of fluid in the tube could therefore be very accurately calibrated by closing the ball valve on the overflow tube, overfilling the chamber with fluid until the fluid level was higher than the overflow tube and then just opening the ball valve until all the fluid ran out.
Once the fluid column was calibrated, the experimental subject need only insert his arm into the tube, displacing fluid through the overflow port. All of the fluid moving through the overflow port was caught and measured. The position of the subject's arm was precisely aligned by having the subject grasp a second (much smaller diameter – ca. 0.75 inches) polymer tube containing a right angle bend. This tube was itself marked with a depth gauge. The subject was told to grasp the short (horizontal) section of this rigid tubing just after the right angle bend and to keep his wrist as straight as possible. Each measurement consisted of lowering the arm (grasping the horizontal section of the depth gauge tube) into the fluid column until the marked position on the vertical section of the depth gauge aligned with the lip of the fluid column. The volume of fluid displaced through the overflow tube (necessarily equivalent to the volume of the subject's arm up to the standardized immersion depth) was accurately measured and recorded.
The initial measurement was that of the resting arm volume. The subject had undertaken no exercise nor had he ingested any supplements 24 hours prior to these measurements being taken. Ten resting arm volume measurements were taken sequentially. The subject's mean arm volume was found to be 4200.98 milliliters. The Standard Deviation of this series of measurements was only 43.41 ml or about 1.08% of the mean. This level of precision suggested that the arm volume measurements were being determined at a high level of precision.
For the next series of experiments, the subject was asked to undertake what was, for him, a very minimal amount of exercise. This man, routinely able to curl 80 pounds with each arm, was asked to perform ten repetitions of a single-arm curl with a twenty pound dumbbell with the same arm for which the resting arm volume had previously been determined. The arm volume was determined immediately after his ten repetitions had been completed. The exercise sets followed by volume measurement were repeated five more times for a total of six measurements. No trend was seen in the replicate measurements. The mean arm volume during exercise was found to be 4291.77 milliliters. The Standard Deviation of measurement in this case was found to be 31.35 or 0.73% of the mean volume of the exercised arm. It is of interest to note that the difference between the resting arm volume and the exercised arm volume (90.79 milliliters) was substantially larger than either of the two Standard Deviations measured, suggesting that both measurements were made at a sufficient level of precision that the difference between the resting and the exercise arm volume is significant.
The last series of measurements was undertaken 30 minutes after treatment with one recommended dose of Anadraulic State. As in the previous series of measurements, ten repetitions of a curl with a twenty pound dumbbell was immediately followed by an arm volume measurement. As before, each session of exercise followed by an arm volume measurement was repeated a total of six times.
The results in this case were quite dramatic. The mean volume of the arm volume measurements in this case were 4471.46 ml, 270.51 milliliters more than the volume of the arm at rest and 179.69 milliliters more than the volume produced by exercise alone. The Standard Deviation of this measurement was 55.88, at 1.24% of the mean arm volume in these treatment parameters. This is similar to the Standard Deviations found with resting state determinations and also with exercise alone. Anadraulic State was developed to be a sports supplement that helped a bodybuilder to increase the “pump” of his muscles. There can be no doubt that this product does that. Furthermore, note that this series of experiments exercised only the biceps of the arm. A more balanced exercise scheme could well be expected to show even more dramatic increases.
