    Would you recommend I cut out the thighs and replace it with a trimmer cut of meat, then get my fats from Fish Oils and other "cleaner" sources?

    Poseidon is nice. I gave my wife some, but she hasn't felt anything yet. I'm going to keep giving it to her and see if she notices a difference. I felt good, but I'm a placebo junky. If she notices a difference I know theres something there
    that sucks about the chicken breasts. Those are my favorites and I cant stand thighs. Go figure.

    If you feel comfortable with the thighs by all means, however I would go with the leaner piece myself and use the EFA's if I can.

    Regarding poseidon, how long has your wife been using it. Everyone is different, so sometimes I think we all feel things at different intervals. I am with you, I am a placebo junkie, I swear things work as soon as I swallow them. Let me know how she does on it, I am a huge fan of it myself, and would love to get some female feedback.

    Just a thought, but are you buying 'good' chicken breasts or the cheap frozen things that are 15% nasty preservative solution?

    Try some decent, non-frozen organic chicken breast from Whole Foods or at least a reputable organic, non solution filled breast and see if you like them any better.

  3. What I had noticed with Poseidon is by taking hydration measurements on my scale every day for months, it always hovered around 48%. After several weeks on Poseidon, I was hovering around 54% consistently. There was no increase in water intake, just the addition of Poseidon to my water bottles several times a day. I got several compliments on my skin, like my face was healthier and glowing with no other supplementation change.

    I've tried frozen, fresh, spices, pretty much everything....not organic though, maybe I should give that a try. I *can* choke down chicken breasts if I need to, but its definitely not something that I like. They're also not that bad drenched in olive oil or marinated for like a day.

    Also, I don't always eat chicken...often times I eat steak and salmon as well, I just happened to eat all chicken yesterday.

    this is very important. I always go with the organic, even though you pay a little more, it is so much better for you.

    I have heard the skin thing as well. One of the major draws to Poseidon is that it has so many varying benefits that can range from performance to skin.

    Try brining some organic breasts prior to baking them. I'm a huge steak/salmon fan myself, just chicken ends up being a cheap staple for me.

    Does this mean I will carry more water weight on Poseidon?

    Brining?

    I didn't look 'softer', nor did I notice any additional scale weight. Usually higher levels of hydration means you carry less water weight/bloat.

    Definitely not like 'creatine bloat', if that is what you are worried about.

    Ok, thought that was what you meant...for a second I was thinking until waiting until after the summer to continue taking it (not that it makes that much of a difference when you're 21.8% bf )

  13. Mmmmm....that sounds tasty. Gonna get some chicken breasts and give it a try. My biggest complaint about them is that they get dry and this looks like a good way of fixing that.

    Thanks Xodus.

    Perfect way to fix dried out chicken breasts. Sometimes I swap out part of the water with broth, either vegetable or chicken, for some additional flavor.

  15. 5/17/2008 8/14/2008 9/4/2008
    WEIGHT: 280 267 269
    ARM (flexed): 16.25 16.5 16.5
    THIGH: 29 27 28
    CHEST: 47.5 49.5 50
    SHOULDERS: 55 56 56.5
    GUT: 46 43 43
    NECK: 17 17 17
    BF%: 28% 22.4% unknown

    I seem to be growing well.

    I've decided I'm going to stay on the Anabolic Diet and do a 3 week SD (the original) cycle at 20mg.

    I'm going to slightly up my calories to about 4000-4200, higher as needed....but other than that not change much in the diet.

    For PCT, I'm doing Nolva-40/40/30/20 and adding in creatine and DHEA.

    My goal is to correct the muscular imbalance between my upper back and chest (my upper back is weaker), build core strength, and build leg and arm strength.

    I'll barely be touching my chest for the next 3 weeks.

  16. you may wanna re-think your cycle/diet. smarter folks than me have told me that some 'supps' are carb-dependent. superdrol, apparently, is at the top of that list.

    I was doing the AD/MD while on SD. You won't 'grow' as much, but you will get hella strong. Lethargy was the biggest b!tch with SD and low carbs.

    I appreciate the heads up. I've read quite a few people have said exactly what you did. However, on the CKD mega thread, Botch said he responded better without carbs. I'm going to give it a go to see how I do on it. I've done superdrol a few years ago with carbs, so I have a baseline.

    I gained like 15 lbs in 6 weeks my first go around with SD, so if I only gain 5 in 3 weeks, I'll be more than happy. This time around I'm really looking to build strength in lagging bodyparts and correct muscular imbalances.

    I heard DHEA is good for the lethargy....

    6 weeks on SD


    Thats a long time on teh drawlz

    EDIT** what about running dermacrine along side the SD to combat lethargy, supposed to be equal to 250ml of Test a week

    It was when it first came out. No one really knew to much about, just that it was a "miracle steroid".

    Whats dermacrine?

  22. Jesus. Superdrol is awesome. I felt like a god in the gym.

    Libido has already crashed, but I'm going to start 100mg DHEA ED to help with that.

    Just weighed myself. Went from 269 to 276 in one day. Its probably not real weight. I have upped my calories. I'm curious how much I'll be after the carb up this weekend.

    I weighed 289 today after the carb up. Thats 18 pounds in the last 4 days.

    I'm guessing 10-12 pounds is water weight, but that is still insane weight gain.

    One day later and I'm back to 281. The water weight fluctuations between the SD and the carb up is insane.
