    Spring Training Review of Poseidon


    I just got back from my 10 day spring trainning run in southern Florida. Weather was great high 70's all week and almost no clounds in sight. Which brings me to why I wanted to use Poseidon, we were playing atleast 2 games or had 2 training sessions a day. Heres my 10day total Review

    Dose Method:
    I mixed 2 servings in about a 1.5 leiter jug of 75% water and 25% gatorade. I would drink 2 of these drinks per day. Each I began sippin on about 15 minutes before the game or training session. If there was a longer lay-off inbetween games I'd take 1 serving about half way inbetween.

    Taste:
    If you just mixed the the powder striaight into the drink and drank/chugged it, it had a salty/metaly taste to it but...........If you mixed it and let it sit for a little bit (maybe 10min) there was no trace of that taste what so ever. I even mixed 2 servings in just water on day and couldnt taste a difference.

    Hydration Effects:
    I DID NOT CRAMP UP 1 SINGLE TIME THE WHOLE WEEK!!!!! I usually get shin splints pretty bad also and I wasn't really effected at all with any pain of that sort, while another player is almost the same way i am and had them badly by about the 3rd day. Another thing I noticed is I was never extremly thirsty like other players and neither wa the other guy useing it with me. We'd both just drink our 2 poseidon "cocktails" and about another 1 leiter or water daily and we were good to go.

    Fatigue due to Dehydration:
    Im not gonna lie I did get fatigued. Now it wasn't to the super extreme of haveing muscle soreness. The 1st couple days I had tired legs but after the they weren't nealry as tired. Now is this me getting use to the pain or Poseidon? Thats your call, I'll say its a lil' of both. I didnt have bad muscle sorness like some other guys complained about either.

    Other Supps while on Trip:
    -5~10gr. Glutamine
    -12.5 mg Ephedra (when needed)
    -Rebound Reloaded (2nightly)
    -Super Cissus RX

    Debunking some common questions:

    Q: "Look your drinking about a gallon of water per day, thats why your hydrated."

    A:"Well sadly enough i drink 1 gallon+ of water daily and stil cramp at times, ecspecially when we turned the heat up in the dome to get a "Florida" feel."

    Q: "Your drininking gatorade, that helps with replenising"

    A: "Sorry I make that exact same mix (minus poseidon) for each practice and stil find my self sucking down fluids after and feeling slightly de-hydrated."

    *You can go ahead and make your own conclusion with what i have presented you. Another note is I was not givin this poseidon for free and there was no incentive to do this. I just did this to help out all athletes who are looking for somthing to help stay hydrated and feel better in the blistering sun during summer workouts because we all need it. I personally will recomend this too all my buddies who play sports in these conditions.

    I want to thank Nimbus Nutrition for makeing such a great supplement, and Im happy I could do this review for you. I can only hope that the rest of my poseidon tub will give keep giving me added benifits as I see the benifits get better and better over time.

    If there are any other questions just let me know, and i'll due my best to answer them

    Great review distilled. Very detailed and informative stuff you gave us there. I was wondering how things where going with you the other day, and wouldn't you know it BAM a couple of days later you post the review. I'm glad it worked out for you my man, as I thought you had some advantageous ideas going in. How bad did you beat the other guys up out in that beautiful Florida weather?

    Once again, thanks for the stellar review.

    Very good. That's a rough training schedule. I'm sure any advantage, no mater how small, is greatly appreciated.
