    AE resides in the sea with Poseidon and Poseidon NT (sponsored)


    A very big thank you to nimbustim and the whole Nimbus team for allowing me the opportunity to log both of these products. It is great to see my old Nimbus friends back here at AM.

    I used to rep for Nimbus back in the day, so getting the opportunity to use an old favorite of mine made me quite happy.

    My package arrived today, and in it were Poseidon Raspberry and Poseidon NT Georgia Peach. In addition, there was a t shirt and a bounty of samples including blast. As a quick aside, I did have a sample of Poseidon Cherry, and let me tell you, I missed the flush and the taste was excellent.

    I use a crazy workout schedule due to work. I am a high school administrator and dont have afternoon time. I wake up every day at 3:45.

    Here is my split:
    Monday: shoulders
    Tuesday: off
    Wednesday: back and bis
    Thursday: Chest and tris
    Friday: shoulders
    Saturday: back (deads)
    Sunday: heavy chest

    Due to major nerve damage, legs are almost impossible to do. If I can tolerate the pain, they would be done on Fridays.

    A little more background on me:
    35 years old
    5' 11"
    204lbs

    Been training since I am 11 and over the last several years, I have refocused on powerlifting. I lift exceptionally hard, with as heavy as I can go all the time, with as much volume as my body can tolerate.

    Currently, I am only using the following supps:
    • Orange Triad
    • Super Cissus
    • Isology
    • Assault (sometimes)
    The plan is to start the NT tonight (maybe one of the samples) and then hit the ground running with Poseidon tomorrow. As I mentioned, I am quite familiar with the flush (have one right now) and am excited to get going. I will focus on the following points in this log:

    effects/Sleep effects
    taste
    mixability
    flush power

    If any of the Nimbus folks want me to add or change focus, please let me know and I will be happy to do so.

    Looking forward to the ride, and especially the sleep

    As an aside, my sleep has been more difficult the last month as we got a dog who loves to sleep between my wife and I.

    Lets get the show rolling

    Awesome start!

    I just want to preface your log by saying that Poseidon NT does not really kick in full force until about the end of the 1st week. However, saturating your body with the Poseidon Complex via Poseidon during the day and Poseidon NT at night should help get things going faster. The actual amount of sleep aids in Poseidon NT is minimal by any standard, however the synergy btween the 3 and the Poseidon Complex makes this one of the best sleep aids on the market.

    Get yourself ready for some extremely vivid dreams in the upcoming weeks!

    Ok. Just finishing 2 packets of the Georgia peach Poseidon night time.

    Taste: very subtle. I am in no way a peach fan, but Tim recommended it to me so I figured I would give it a go. I am impressed, it is not over powering in the least.

    Mixability: a few shakes in the shaker and it is completely dissolved. That is always a major positive.

    Effects: nothing of note yet, but it is still early. I am eagerly awaiting the flush and a nice sense of relaxation.


    Big props to nimbus on the flavoring. The old Poseidon was "flavorless" but not really. This is very pleasant. Great job.

    Some initial thoughts from last night into this am. Georgia Peach is awesome!!!! As I sit here with my poseidon raspberry, which is also good....the Peach is far and away better. I had some blast peach this am, and it was great. The Poseidon NT was phenomenal in terms of a calming feeling. I did not feel like I was going to "pass out" like other sleep aids. It was more relaxed and at ease.

    WIll update later after I finish sipping away at my current Poseidon water bottle.

    Had a good back workout. Didnt do deads, but focused more on rack pulls. Not much to mention in terms of strength and pump, but will acknowledge that i do feel good and energetic, which is rare for me at all after 7ish. I did 2 sessions of cardio and a (sadly) boat load of snow shoveling as we got crushed here SE Pa

    Here is how the day went

    Wide grip chins (5 sets)
    Rack pulls (6 sets) got 525 for an easy 2
    BB Rows (3 sets)
    Underhand pullups (4 sets)

    Tomorrow is more of a heavy chest day then some good triceps work. Will be hitting the Poseidon NMT within the hour

    Had a good lift and cardio day today

    a little rundown of the day
    incline bp (4 sets) more for warmups than anything
    flat bp (8 sets) 315lbs 2 reps
    floor press (4 sets)
    JM press (6 sets)
    1 arm db ext (4 sets)* superset
    close grip bp (4 sets) *superset

    Regarding the Poseidon, NT is great. The peach tastes great, mixes well and last night was similar to friday. Not overly tired, more calm and relaxed. Regular Poseidon is good as well. Sipped on it throughout the day, specifically during my workout.

    Well...the dog stopped me from a good nights sleep, so I was up at 3 and on the treadmill getting the day going. That would be ok under normal circumstances, except I will be at work from 6:45am to 9pm

    Either way, I had a solid run and lift. Will update later on with overall thoughts thus far

    If Poseidon NT has one downfall is that the full benefits don't kick in until about a week / week and a half in. Everyone who's stuck with it have been extremely happy the did, as the sleep does get better.

    How many scoops are you currently taking?
    What are you eating, and how close are you eating before bed?
    How close is that to your NT dosage?

    Have you tried mixing the product in sticking it in the freezer for about 15 minutes? Nom Nom Nom.

    I really enjoy the NT. I have been using 2 scoops thus far with no food probably 2 hours prior.

    As I said, the feeling is not an overwhelming "I cant keep my eyes open". Its more, a nice sense of calm and relaxation. Which I like much better.

    The NT continues to impress, and I have to agree with Tim's assessment, it gets better the more you use it. TOok my 2 scoops around 8:45, and by 9:15 I was relaxed and laid out. Just awesome. I woke up at 3:30 refreshed and ready to go.

    Hit the treadmill for 40 minutes then got in some back/bis

    Obviously, this log is not about pump per se, or strength increases. However, I do feel good and refreshed and surprisingly energetic.

    This is a great update. Like I said, after about a week of continued use, you will be getting the full benefits. I'm suprised you've not reported any dreams thus far. Do you dream normally?

    It's amazing at how much better our body works when we're fully rested and hydrated. Hydration plays a huge roll in our day to day life.

    Its interesting you bring up dreams. I have never been a big dreamer. Every now and then I will get some crazy, odd dream, but on the norm its rare.

    I will also note, that I do wake up quite rested, even though I am up so early.

    Had a real nice chest workout this am

    Incline BP (6 sets)
    Incline flys (4 sets) * superset
    Incline db press (4 sets) *superset
    Flat flys (4 sets)

    Hoping to get a little sore

    I will update my lifts from today and tomorrow in the afternoon, again I just wanted to comment on the NT effects.

    The peach tastes amazing, mixes easily, and has a very subtle impact. I have not noticed anything over the top in dreams, but we shall see on that front.

    A little late with the update but here I am.

    My workouts (Fri-Shoudlers, Sat.-Back/Bis) were good, as I felt quite well rested.

    I will say that last night NT was a life saver. I forgot to take it right away, and stayed up to watch the UFC. At the end of the event, I had a horrible headache, which is something I never typically have. Ended up taking NT around 10:30, and by 11 I was drifting off peacefully.

    As an aside, I am noticing with the greater hydration, the more frequent bathroom use. Not a bad thing, but is certainly becoming more noticeable.

    Workouts have remained strong, nothing outrageous but pleased

    I am beginning to wonder if my stomach issues are Poseidon related or not. Either way I feel very good, energetic considering the time I wake up. Favors and mixing for both thus far are top notch.

    A further update on this.....my stomach issues have persisted. I might take today off from Poseidon just to see. The oddest thing however, is that I feel really good. I feel energetic, well rested etc....but just have stomach upset. Kinda odd.

    Additionally, my workouts have remained top notch even with the stomach side of things.

    I will update tomorrow with my findings.

    Either way the Poseidon and the Poseidon NT are great imo. The taste is excellent (subjective I know) and the mixing offers no clumps are floaters. I will also say that Tim was correct, the NT gets better the more you use it.

    Either way the Poseidon and the Poseidon NT are great imo. The taste is excellent (subjective I know) and the mixing offers no clumps are floaters. I will also say that Tim was correct, the NT gets better the more you use it.
    Hope the stomach issue goes away. Sometimes people experience some stomach issues with magnesium....so that might be a possibility. If that's the case, maybe you can split up the day time dosing and take some food with it. The big key with the Poseidon Complex is to saturate your system with it.

    Nice to hear Poseidon Night Time is picking up steam like I said it would. The best sleep is still to come.
