I went to SND yesterday just to browse and what do you know, they just got in Spike and Power Drive. So I figured what the hell. As my screen name suggests I love ninjutsu and one of the skills,is every ninja must have is herbal medicine and pharmacology.
Over the past few years I have been doing lots of research ( and a few experiments) on those subjects. The goal of this is to be able to improve my preformance (both physical and psycological) on any acute stressor, without creating a dependance or weakness. In this area my experiments with stimulants ie: carffine have yeilded unsatisfactory results. So I am working with Spike to see if I can use it on a non regular basis to provide a buffer agaisnt fatiuge, and low psycological arousal.
I have taken my resting heart rate and have gotten my all one rep maxes, as a psyiological bench mark of comparason.
So the first Spike is down the hatch and I am waiting to see what happens.
I will report my results tonight with one Spike, if I suffer no ill effects I will repeate with two after the recomended three days.
If it works then I will have found an invaluable tool in my ninja asenal, if not then I will have supported a group that has help me improve my taijutsu (body skills) imensely. So I figure what the hell, whats the worst that could happen.
