    In all seriousness, the product doesn't seem to deliever those "WOW, that's amazing." type things that we are use to reading with stims, superdrol, and stuff. So far it's more like a good, quality, subtle "ahh that's pretty nice" type feeling. Being an active hobbiest/athelete I have been really feeling the batterments that waitlifting, jogging, basketball, school, work etc,etc does to one. I know I'm in a state of overtraining by the constant fatigue and fogged up type mind I've suffered from the past couple of weeks, and I've just now begun to deal with it by rearranging my wo's, and other activities. Honestly, so far the poseidon has really made me feel good by the fact that I actually feel like I could do more crap now then I have recently. My new schedule kicks up tomorrow so hopefully it'll only get better, and JJC I'll let you know how it acts as a stand alone preworkout supp.
    Let me know when the x-ray vision kicks in...we may really be on to something

  4. Sure will workin, right now I'm just focusing on putting the papers aside and watching the football game.

    Quick recapp for the day.... nothing really amazing happening as I've spent most of the day reading and analyzing some stuff, and doing all the things you have to do on Sundays like preparing my food, cleaning, etc. I will say that my awareness has been slightly tweaked with my reading. Usually after about 2 research papers I'm ready to quit cause after the 3rd, 4th and so on they start running together and it gets a little confusing. I got thru 3 straight and seemed to have very good recall on them. Maybe poseidon is helping with the recall or maybe it's because I got interested in them. Who knows, I'll save judgment on that for later.

    Do you think it will help aid in focus/motivation in the gym? I don't think it will help with energy or pumps but maybe it has some uses for training.

    (I'm waiting for mine to come in and so far I can't wait)
    You know I'm sure it'll help enhance a workout, but what I'm curious to know is the after workout effects. I'm wanting to see how it makes me feel the rest of the day, as I usually do my workouts early in the morning. Lately after workouts I've been experiencing major fatigue as I eluded to earlier, so I'm interested in seeing how/if poseidon will give a little edge in that department(it's one of the major reasons why I wanted to give it a go).

    Sounds good man. Best of luck with that. I train in the evening, so it won't be something that really concerns me but I do look forward to what you have to say about your experience with taking it pre w/o.

  7. Okay, got my workout in this morning and I can tell you the hydration effects of poseidon are noticable. Sets, and reps all seemed to easy and to few today as I felt like I could have worked in a couple extra sets in every bodypart. The endurance is definetly up, and there was a bit more mind/muscle connection with the weights today( I'll see if this progresses as usually somedays its good, and some day's its not). If it continues like this, I'd say that it defenitly has it's place as a preworkout supp, as I really enjoyed my workout today.

    Now for the rest of the day. Fatigue and general lazyness was not apparent at all today. Even after the weight session, my thoughts were pretty well free flowing and I basically just maintain a constant good energy level all day. Didn't even feel that afternoon lag that I usually get..... and that's good. Had two 2 1/2 hr classes today and managed to stay very attentive thru out. The lecture material seemed to all fit together fairly nicely, and I even managed to answer a couple of question the professor couldn't.

    Now for a couple of things I noticed today about taking poseidon..... 1. If you mix it with about 20-24ounces of H20 the niacin flush is greatly reduced(I didn't even get one with my morning dose), and 2. If you mix it and let it sit for about 2-5 min you taste absolutely nothing.

    Let me know if theres something I left out that anybody may want to hear about.

    Great review...detailed as always ;-)

    You point out some of my favorite personal benefits with Poseidon...the increased mental acuity...lasting late into the day....and over all sense of vitality. I use to have to have some form of caffeine around 3:00 or I was a zombie. Since taking Poseidon, I have no need for it.

    Workin

  9. Diddo on the caffiene as well. The fatigue fighting aspects so far have been really good.

  10. Did you only take that one dose pre w/o? Or did you take another one or two later on in the day?

    Basically, I'm interested in how long the focus and hydration effects last. I would like to mix it into my pre w/o mixes, but I wouldn't want to drink 24 ounces directly before my training session. My point is, how long do you think before training can you take Poseiden in order to still feel the focus and hydration?

    This sounds like a great product and I would like to extend the one bottle that I'm about to receive for as long as possible.

    Thanks for the great review so far.

    (I don't know if I rep'd you already for this review, but if I didn't then let me know.)

  11. I took one serving of poseidon before w/o( and I just thought I would mix it with 20 some ounces of water, I don't think it's necessary though), mixed and sipped one throughout the the workout and after, then mixed another serving into a another water bottle to take with me to work and sip on during classes. It's pretty much an all-day thing as far as the energy goes. Hydration, I'd say is similar as I think that's a big part to why it acutually increases energy. If you want to extend a bottle I'd say just mix in a couple of servings into your favorite water bottle to sip on thru the day, and take a third dose in a meaningful time frame before your workout.

    On my workout days (even though I don't workout until later in the evening, usually after 6pm), I take 2 scoops first thing in the am on an empty stomach mixed with a 50/50 mix of 8oz pineapple juice and 8oz water and get one hell of a flush! On cardio days, like this morning, I take 2 scoops on an empty stomach with 16oz water only and have to chug it - it does have a taste, and get a very noticable flush as well. Mid-day I mix 2 scoops in a liter of water. Great thread!

    I couldn't have put it better myself ;-)

    I would suggest this however JJC.... if your working out later in the evening, start sipping on your third dose about 5-10 minutes prior to your workout and finish it about 15 minutes into your workout. I find I have great results when I consume Poseidon during a workout due to the almost immediate absorption. You may want to experiment and see what works best for you.

    Thanks for your comments mtas,

    Do you find that if you mix Poseidon in water, and let it sit for a few minutes, the taste subsides somewhat? I mix Poseidon in my water bottle first thing in the morning and then jump in the shower. After I get out, I start drinking it and find the taste is barely there, if at all. Funny how everyone's taste buds a slightly different...maybe I've just gotten so use to it I don't even notice

    I'll give that a shot tonight when I get home before dinner. I'll mix 2 scoops with about 16oz of water and let it sit for 15 minutes before drinking it. When I mix 2 scoops in a liter of water, there is no taste, only a pinkish tint to the water Any rough estimates as to when the bigger tub of it will be released? I started my wife on it this morning and she left for work with the flush going full bore

    Sounds good...let me know what you find.

    We hope to have the larger tub released in less than 2 weeks...right around the same time we will be releasing Performance Pudding Nite-Time ;-)

    I usually start sipping on my poseidon right at workout time, and through out, then finish the bottle right before I hit the showers. Seems to work pretty good for me, but I'm also doing my workouts in the early am on an empty stomach and the spacing of the first dose isn't all that far away from the workout dose. I think from the first serving I'm pretty well hydrated and the small servings during workouts is doing it's maintainence.

    Update: Energy has been good today, had a slight bout of lethargy earlier in the morning what with reading a ten page report on PPAR alpha, and then spending an hour formulating answers to some really ambigous questions.... all at 8:00am this morning. I'm glad I got through it without falling asleep. Prepping for my presentation tomorrow is coming along smoothly, I find myself able to clearly recall certain facts from papers and talk about them on the appropriate slides easier then it's usually been. I'm looking forward to the talk now, as retention seems to be a bit better.

  21. Day 5

    Okay guy's update time:
    Had a pretty good day today, went for a 7 mile run and thought that this would really put the hydration effects of poseidon to the test. The run in and of itself went fairly smooth. I haven't run that far in one session in a really long time, as the endurance I had was fairly suprising. I probably could have went a couple miles or more with no problem, but didn't want to chance it. It was a good comfortable run, and if anybody is wondering my time was 7mi in 58.3min(nice and steady with less then 10min miles, I like it).

    The rest of the day was spent going over some last minute testing of my presentation outline and the actual presentation was a 2:00pm. I owned it, I actually recalled all the things that I had practice and even threw in some stuff that just happened to pop up at the moment. Not to be self congradulatory but I thought it was a damn good speech. The only down side was that the professor didn't like my outline, as apparently I was suppose to disect and find faults in all the studies I was reading, not just present and talk about the information that was obtained. I never recalled him saying this and I evenly specifically asked him how he wanted the presentation to be, and I did what I "thought" was stated. Oh well, it just means that I'll have to remodify and present it again somewhere later in the semester(all that work for nothing basically). Aaargh, I hate professor's that utilize english as a second language.

    Congrats on a great presentation! I find that professors usually nit pick like that when you've done an excellent job and they just don't have anything else to say...I think it makes them feel in control and secure in their position. That said, you must have really done well!

    Nice timing on the run! How often do you jog that far?

    Workin

  23. Yeah, professors can be like that sometimes. It really just depends on the class and the person, as to how nit picky they are. I usually do a run like 2x a week(Wed. and Sat), as it's part of a new training protocol I'm trying out. Usually in order to get both cardio and weight sessions in, I did one after the other on Mon, Tues, Thru, and Fri. I feel this was a big reason why I was so tired for the rest of the day, so I decided to switch it up to longer runs on non weight training days, and just the weights ever other day.

  24. Day 6

    Today went really good. Had all kinds of energy today, as the day seemed to drag on forever yet I never once really felt tired at all. Usually when I have days like this(the ones that for some reason seems like the clock is moving 1min every 5) I pratically have to battle the constants yawns and the urge to tack a nap in the middle of what ever I was doing. I was actually very productive today as I got a lot of work done on homework, evaluations, work work, and a really good back/chest workout this morning. One thing I have noticed that not many people have mentioned yet is the sleep benefits I've had the past couple of days. Don't know if I could contribute this to the poseidon or not, but who knows. Magnesium is know as a relaxant in many ways, maybe that has something to do with it. All that I know is that I have really gotten to sleep alot faster then normal(shortly after my head hits the pillows), and I sleep all night up until the alarm goes off. I usually get up before the alarm clock goes off, and this morning I almost slept right thru it.....interesting.

    Better quality sleep is a HUGE benefit of Poseidon. Don't get this confused, however, and think it will make you sleepy or sluggish during the day. IT WON'T. It actually gives you the best of both worlds and is one of the reasons the Poseidon Complex formula is so unique.

    While there are many reasons why Poseidon contributes to better sleep, one of the BIGGEST is the CNS Health benefits. Playing a large role is the "Methylcobalamin" in Poseidon. Here is a link to an article that discusses this...you'll notice toward the bottom, one of the benefits noticed with Methylcobalamin supplementation is improved sleep patterns...among many other things ;-)
