    Have any of you used either of these kinds of supps? Do they provide the energy boost for workouts that they claim?

    They're both mostly bullshit. I did notice better pumps while on di-arginine malate and CEE but you can buy that in bulk and its much cheaper than any "no2" supplement.

    I think its been established that glutamine is pretty much useless.

    it's good for helping immune system problems when endurance training. That's about it.

    did you stack the di-arg with the CEE? Or take them at different times?

    I stacked them. Now I'm just taking CEE by itself but I'm gonna order some more of the di-arg malate soon.

    do some research... NO2 products are bullshit and can be potentially toxic to the human body.

    Glutamine? I don't really know. I take it maybe have seen a lil less soreness. I dunno, I got a jug of powder for free, so....

    Not that I can think of. I'm not real big on supplements, I try to keep it simple. Right now all I take is whey, animal pak (OH NOES), bcaa's, cee, a thermogenic or two and eventually nice little things that come in vials and well, you know.

    I'm bulking now, so my shit consists of whey/casien, CEE, flax oil, and glucosamine when I need it. Thinking about the darkside, but I'm pretty sure I'm not ready for it yet..

    define 'better pump' for me? I see this tossed around a lot but never seen a solid explaination of it.

    Noexplode makes my fucking arms get so swoll I cant even flex. Theres nothing left to flex, it blows them up. Same with legs, or anything else you happen to work that day. Other than the pump, I dont know if it does anything else really.

    Forces more blood into the muscle, delivering more nutrients and stretching the fibers and all that good stuff.
