    Hey guys, question for ya! I just bought the Dark Matter post-workout supplement. Does anyone have any pointers as to how to use it the best way? and should I continue consuming protein shakes with it as well?

    here it is below

    Every real sports nutritionist I've talked to or heard speak, and every real sport nutrition book I've read says that powders, additives, supplements, etc. are wasted money and expensive urine. They all agree: eat right.

    With some exceptions: in endurance training, some light form of electrolyte replacement can be good (though I've done 3-hr runs on plain old water), and post-workout something to get blood sugars/carbohydrates back up can be good, as there's a roughly 30-minute "window" when the body will absorb more for a faster recovery.

    The only supplement almost universally recommended is some sort of vitamin. But the real bottom line is: eat right. There are some good books out there on sports nutrition; they cost about as much as one large can of some supplement. Though many prefer to support the zillion-dollar sports enhancement industry...

    You look great - no need to worry about all that!

He was the first American to take over technical services for a foreign team (Slovenia) and worked also for Germany and Sweden. He has coached at 3 Olympics and 14 World Championships, edited Nordic Update for 9 years and Cross-Country Skier for 2. He has written three books on skiing and training; the latest was The Complete Guide to Cross-Country Ski Preparation (Mountaineers Books) which has gone through two editions and a Russian translation. He spends as much time as he can at his ranch in British Columbia where he most recently hosted a pre-Olympic training camp for Slovenia.

    hey there, yeah i'm a big fan of dark matter. I have tried many post work out drinks and this one works for me. You have to drink it right after your work out and don't let it sit for that long because it will get a little thick. It tastes pretty good as well. You are not supposed to eat anything or have any other type of shake for an 1 hr after drinking so you will get the maximum absorbtion and benefits of it. I see pretty good muscle fullness from it as well after a few weeks of using. The guys i buy it from say to stay on for about two months and cycle off after that. thats just my experience so hope it works for you.

    Why would some company call something Dark Matter, when even the NASA scientists can't agree on what Dark Matter actually is, or if it even exists?

    Dark matter the cosmic mystery and Dark Matter the supplement are two different things. Two very different things.

    when you say cycle off you mean slowly decrease the amount of intake? and if so, what do you recommend?

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidTo know a little bit about Paulflexes is to know that his posts are wittily sarcastic, playful or outright sluttishly whorish. I can totally relate to his writing style because I have those very same attributes. Especially the last one.... in abundant supply.. icon_wink.gif
    So you're saying you're a whoreslutcuntskank? Sweet! My twin! icon_biggrin.gif

    Dark Matter!!!!
    No Thanks.
    I have this huge issue with something that is called something that sounds just wrong. and Dark Matter is not something that sounds edible or tasty.
    Casu Marzi is not something that sounds bad, but I ain't eating that crap either. I don't care what kind of hype they put to it, even if it would pomise to make me grow big and strong!

    Emphasis added:

    And that is exactly what Dark Matter is: a post-workout supplement specifically intended for taking within the 30-minute window after weight training. So this thread is indeed focused on one of the exceptions which you indicated.

    agreed! other than the dark matter I eat right, eat my vitamins and I do take protein shakes. I have to say I've seen great results with Dark Matter.

    tazzari, What books on sports nutrition do you recommend? Like you said there are so many. I want to read and learn more but there are so many to choose from. Thanks!
