    Nimbus Swell Review


    A bit late but I get there in the end....


    Nimbus Swell

    I ran an unsponsored log over at another site for two months. The experiment was to run Swell as pretty much a stand alone product with only Blast added for a clean pick me up ( had whey / MRP only a couple of times in two months and used Gatorade powder for carbs for early morning workouts ).

    Training and Diet

    Bodyweight excercises, some cardio and gymnastic rings made up the bulk along with Ashtanga Yoga ( bad back ). No set routine - I work rotating 12hour shifts and have a newborn so I did what I could when I could. I eat as clean as possible when I am hungry. I don't count calories and I don't eat for muscle gain. This is how it has been for years so I believe I can effectively gauge the benefits of a supplement.


    The Review


    Taste

    First tub I had was unflavoured but as they are now all flavoured I will comment on the citrus orange flavour. I would describe it as light and refreshing. Not overpowering and not very sweet. Very easy to get down and could be mixed with other supps without fear of its flavour overpowering others. Had this plenty of times with Blast which together tasted pretty good. As soon as Gatorade powder was added that flavour prevailed.

    Mixability

    Followed the tried and tested method for supps with powdered amino's of mix / shake, let it settle in the fridge for a while, shake again. Mixed no problems at all.

    Effects / What I got out of it

    Pumps and vasculariy - didn't see this one coming ( maybe I should have ). Got decent pumps, almost like a muscle hardening - not a soft bloated pump. Vascularity was rather profound. I got veins through the delts and chest that I have never had before. I don't buy products for pumps generally but I certainly enjoyed this aspect of Swell.

    Recovery - I believe it improved as I had limited DOMS. Considering I did not eat preworkout meals specifically, or use whey I was impressed.

    Performance - dramatic improvement, the numbers speak for themselves. Big gains in all areas but most noticable for excercises where the starting rep range was 8- 12. For example some of my target excercises are as follows;

    1 arm pushups ( each arm ) from 12 to 29! I **** you not

    chinups 1 set max from 15 to 26 in less than four weeks ( on Armstrong chinup program )

    handstand pushups ( against wall, nose to floor ) from 8 to 19

    Gymnastic ring dips from 12 to 23

    v-ups from 25 to 37

    ab wheel rollouts ( arms straight, nose to floor, controlled ) from 15 to 30 *note - got bored of doing these so just stopped at 30*

    Basically hit PB's in almost all aspects of my training and found the I was able to do harder workouts on the gymnastic rings. Endurance was great. I didn't really feel much different but when doing an excercise I would sometimes get to my old PB and think to myself 'this is strange - not tired yet'

    Overall

    Great supplement which has a variety of bases covered. I see this as a great all in one or as a part of a stack. Could see this stacking brilliantly with an intra workout product. Would recommend this to anyone who has the staples covered and would like something to help step up this training. I will use it this way in future but have to fund a Poseidon habit so it won't be a staple for me.

    Good job again Nimbus

    Hope this helps someone, Cheers

    Thanks for the kind words guys, much appreciated. Will be doing more experiments with the Poseidon complex for the next few months and then I will probably try the Swell pre and Core ABC intra combo to see how that goes. You can be sure I will add my feedback as I go.

    You gotta love the veinage. I really think this is part of what separates Swell from other BA / CM / Amino supps. The fact you get a pump and vascularity supp thrown in for the price is a real bonus. That and fact that you take it pre workout make it somewhat unique.
