    Was just gonna put an order in for some NLarge2 and some No-xplode...

    my buddy says he takes some amino acids.. What do amino acids do to help bulk up? I know they help recovery but not sure how they help you bulk up.

    WHats a good amino acid to take :hs:

    L-Leucine


    but you should worry more about getting lots and lots of whole foods in you and not garbage supplements.

    I eat a decent amount of food. I just havent used a protein or anything else for that matter in a couple months. Ive been stuck at 200 lbs and havent been able to gain shit in the last couple months. Im also trying to get over my bench max as well. I can get 275 for 7 but can only get 315 for 1. I figure a nitrix product could get me that energy and stamina for my end of the day workouts.

    There's an article about mega dosing BCAAs and putting on lean mass ... perhaps that's what your friend is talking about??

    I'd stay away from the NOxplode. It's addicting and pretty bad for you.

    Also, you realise you get amino acids in protein, right?

    Not much point supplementing individual amino acids. Supplementing extra doses of glutamine etc is pretty much useless. The only one that might be a possible benefit is L-Leucine (or a blend of BCAAs) but I doubt it's worth the money.

    I would pick up a good stimulant for the gym and a couple tubs of a quality protein blend

    For amino acids, go for BCAA. I'm using the Scivation Xtend Watermelon flavor ftw
    Cycle On/Off No-Xplode every once in a while, otherwise you get used to it
