    First off, it's expensive.

    2nd, I took it for the first time the other night before my chest workout and I did have more energy.

    Found out later my friend put 3 fucking scoops in so that's why I didn't fall asleep until 7:30 in the morning. :hsugh:

    Anyway, who cycles this stuff regularly?

    Thinking about getting some and obviously using less before each workout.

    What's F&N's take?

    Found this site that has the 2.71 lb jug for only $43.99 :eek3:

    Not sure how reputable it is though :o

    I think you're better off w/o supplements

    I know I increased my 1 rep bench rep by 50lbs. in 2 months w/o supplements while friends are exhausting all their funds on supplements and getting nowhere.

    actually.. I don't think I'll buy protein powder ever again

    shit is a waste of money

    invest in meat and veggies

    :rly:

    Protein powder is a quick and efficient way of getting into your body quickly PWO.

    Disagree about it being a waste of $.

    stop taking it and see if anything changes

    nothing changed for me except for the shits and farts



    ok hear me out...

    I was taking 4 of those shakes a day... (blah blah 30g protein every meal...)

    I dislocated my elbow and have been in and out of lifting ever since and haven't been using protein shakes.

    I bench more, I can run faster, further, squat more, deadlift more... eat more and see what happens.

    NO-Xplode taste like skittles but is ridiculously expensive and not worth it imo.

    other products are more cost effective, but if your wallet is fat you can do what you want...

    I just started with White Flood after 3 cans of NO-Shotgun, which was great...

    People still take this shit???

    It aint fucking magic.


    Go buy some bulk AAKG powder if you believe "NO" supplementation makes a difference (hint, it doesnt).

    Eating > Shakes; however, even on the strictest BB diets I've read, they still use a shake immediately after training for PWO nutrition.

    Your points are correct that whole food > shakes, but you're talking about drinking 4 shakes a day. Most people would only advocate for 1, maybe 2 PWO.

    You're right that you shouldn't live on supplements. After all the word supplement means "in addition".. so you should be supplementing things IN ADDITION to your diet. If you're not eating enough, no magical pills will make you gain weight.

    But to discount them altogether.. not the best option for lots of people. The nutritional supps (meal replacements, protein shakes etc) are a good idea if you have to eat quickly or you don't have a big appetite. But ya, lots of the pills and potions are just junk.

    I use tried and tested:
    Whey/casein/egg protein blend
    Waxy Maize Starch
    Fish oil
    Beta alanine
    CEE

    If I could only choose one, I'd choose the protein blend and if I could choose two I'd choose the protein blend and beta alanine.

    NO-Xplode is nice if you want to get a better pump or have more energy for the gym. But you can accomplish those goals much cheaper.. caffeine tablets and some good music :dunno:

    If you're desperate for the pump you can pick up bulk L-argigine or AAKG for much cheaper than No-Xplode.

    The other problem is that you build up tolerance quite quickly. 1 scoop used to work for me.. now I need at least 2 which means you burn through a tub pretty quickly. I've stopped bothering now.. figure it's not worth the money.

    Yeah, that's what I think may happen to me.

    I may give it a try for a while, we'll see.

    I also had to try a tub just to see what the deal is. I've used a NO supp before but it's been years.

    I'll probably never by NO Explode again. Taste is fine. I noticed some energy increase like the first 2 times I took it along with elevated heart rate. Now I take like 1 scoop when I wake up. 2 pre work out. It dont notice shit.

    The only thing I can really say is i just want to finish this shit as fast as I can so I dont have to look at the tub sitting on my counter anymore.

    Anyways, I've just started taking it about 2 weeks ago, and I've been sick this last week, but when I was working out, I got some of the best pumps I had ever gotten :dunno:

    N.O. Xplod works for me, compared to being on it and being off it for several months at a time, it helps me put out those 5 extra reps+higher weight, and i also don't get fatigued vs. not taking n.o. xplod, and $36 is a small price to pay for big gains.

    i guess the supp. is different for everyone as every body's different. buy it, try it, like it? keep using it... hate it? just stop then

    i used to get it for 19.99 so that was a steal.. I take 2 or 3 preworkout or in the morning when I need some good clean energy. I honestly prefer taking that over anything else.
