    I'm working full time and studying 30 hours a week for a professional license. When I get to the gym I'm usually wiped and No Xplode used to give me the energy and focus that I needed to work out.

    I know it's overpriced and that some people don't like it but it really did work for me. Problem? The fucking No Xplode shits. After a year I just couldn't handle them anymore, but my workouts have been suffering during the week and Caffeine Pills and Energy Drinks just don't cut it.

    Can you please recommend a good preworkout energy supplement, comparable to No Xplode, that doesn't give you crazy shits. Any recommendations are appreciated. Thanks!

    i'm so adapted to coffee that's how much i'd probably need to feel a buzz.
     
  11. I do 1.5 servings of Fast Twitch/NO Shotugn/SuperPump250 or whatever I'm taking at the time and barely feel a buzz anymore. When I first started taking it, it was way crazier.

    1-3 No doze, and a Red Bull.

    But the more and more use the more and more you need to get that hit.

    Primal Force and Whiteflood are pretty good.

    They didn't give me the shits like NOx did.

    I find that if you do take this stuff try and take a week off of it every 3 weeks or so... Otherwise you'll adapt quickly and it won't do as much for you.

    When I was using a pre-workout stim supp I had to take time off from it too. I would take it for 3 weeks and then stop for a week. Since you usually notice it affecting you less after a month or so this cycle helps you keep consistent energy with it.

    When you're not using it just use coffee to get through your workouts.

    I don't take anything now though... I like the stim feeling, but I don't like being so damn reliant on it to get in a decent workout.
    When you're used to taking it with every workout for months on end, working out without it is horrible... it's like you're on 2 hours of sleep and are carrying around an extra 50lbs on every exercise you do.

    Thanks for the suggestions guys. Any opinion on Black Powder? My buddy recommended it but I haven't heard anything about it.

    Haven't tried NoXplode but AAKG + Beta Alanine + 200 mg caffiene works well if you are looking for something cheaper yet still effective pre-workout.

    I picked up some NO Shotgun and took it before my workout. I had a lot of energy and had a good workout. It's good stuff. And most importantly, I didn't have to take a shit halfway through abs, and I've been out of the gym for 2 hours and still don't have to take a shit. Fuck No Xplode.

    superpump is supposed to be good too. I was told to use that when I was taking a break from the no xplod.
