Yea I've tried it before, it's a fine creatine, it just wont add 20lbs of "rock hard muscle" in 2 weeks like it may claim. As far as No Xplode goes, it's probably the most popular supplement period in the US, I only used it once but it seemed like a pretty basic NO product with creatine and lots of caffeine, gave me good pumps and that's about it. The shiny container, being in the Octagon for so long, and extreme claims are reasons for it's popularity. That, and all the caffeine is addicting and makes you want to keep taking it.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

Gaspari Size On is a creatine product you must try in the future, brute. It's my personal favorite along with Controlled Labs Green Magnitude and Green Bulge (GM is the powder form, GB is consumed orally through pills).

As for the whey, I've tried that brand before and actually had 'Delicious Strawberry'. There's not much of a difference between whey products really because of how advanced the research has been and what not but it's a good product.

Some of my recommendations for whey protein are:

-Scivation 10 lb Chocolate Whey Protein
-NLN Lean Pro Matrix Vanilla Whey Protein (2 lbs or 5 lbs)
-Kaizen 5 lb 100% Chocolate Whey Protein

All are great and I feel less bloated on those more so than others.

You should think about getting a strong multi-vitamin too, brute. Definitely an essential to every diet.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

Thanks for recommendations Mitch, I shall look into that stuff. Any multi-vitamin will do the trick eh? No need to spend big bucks there.

You know of any products without caffiene or do they all contain a bit of caffeine? I am basically looking from some straight up Creatine Monohydrate that will do what it has to do and is suppose to do.

No need to spend big bucks on any creatine, honestly.

Just stick with a cheap, Monohydrate and you are all set.

No problem, bro. Just trying to give a brotha' some help.

Yeah, no need to buy a top of the line multi-vitamin. The one piece of advice I'd give you is stay away from Centrum Multi-Vitamins. Totally gave me a stomach ache every time I took no matter if I had a full or empty stomach.

I heard whole-food multi's are pretty affordable and a lot more tolerable for the system but I haven't much experience with them.

The creatine and whey products look good though, Josh.

Yea, NO-Xplode just has creatine in it but it's main purpose is as a pre-workout product to intensify workouts. You should be able to find bulk Creatine Monohydrate on bodybuilding.com pretty easily, and it's going to be pretty cheap. That's what you're looking for.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

I've been gymming for about a year now. don't eat a lot of junk, mostly fresh fish, chicken and extra lean beef. I've gone up about 30 lbs since I started, shedding some fat and gaining a fair bit of muscle. I'm 170 lbs at about 5'10" (I was REALLY skinny when I started). I try to go at least 4 times a week, sometimes more, sometimes less depending on my schedule. I'm pretty happy with my progress, and a friend of mine who works at the gym I went to told me he rarely sees guys put on weight at quick as I did.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

Nitric Oxide products are great for energy, focus, pump and a bit of extra vascularity. Its definitely not a must for any beginner, but every bit helps as long as you're eating correctly.

Oh, and if you bother buying one, buy White Flood in tablet form. 8 huge tablets may be quite a bit to choke down, but its definitely worth it.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

I dont use it anymore, I found it didnt remotely help in terms of putting on mass. Helped with pumps and some in-gym strength gains though. Bulk Arginine powder might be the best/most cost effective route for NO.
