Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

BSN's claim to fame is endorsing Ron Coleman. Muscle Tech endorse Jay Cutler. Muscle Tech doesn't have the best reputation online. Most people say it's full of sugar and guys at supplement shops IO've been to don't recommend it that highly.

NO-Xplode is a pre-training supplement. The main idea of it is to carry more blood to your muscles, giving you the "volumising effect". NO-Xplode has a small amount of creatine, not enough to get too excited about. Cellmass is BSN's creatine. That's not a bad product. I have been taking BSN products on and off for about a year as is is a good value for money. I was buying NO-Xplode on eBay for less than $80 delivered the next day, where it costs up to $130 in the shops. There are much better on the market. One sales rep who works at GNC said you'd be better off to have a strong cup of coffee before a workout rather than take NO-Xplode.You'll get the same effect and it's a shitload cheaper. I hate coffee so there's no way I'm trying it.

I've been taking Black Powder by MRI for the last 6 months, on and off, and have been impressed with it's results. I follow that with Anabolic Switch which is the MRI creatine. I have been very impressed with these 2 products.

Also, BSN and Muscle-Tech have the most attractive packaging and BSN in particular has promoted NO Xplode prominently in the Octagon itself for like 4 or 5 years now. The ridiculous "scientific explanations" given on the back of Muscle-Tech products are fairly plausible for a 15 or 16 year old also, that helps.

Dude at GNC was right. NO-Xplode is just caffeine and L-Arginine with a little creatine and other stuff in too small of qtys to make any difference. The only reason you feel like you are getting bigger is the bloat from 250+mgs of sodium per scoop. If you want the same effects, take some caffeine pills, arginine pills, and hit it!

As far as pre-workout supps, NOX is good, White Flood is good, SuperPump 250 is decent.

Creatine like Cellmass and Size-on are "designer" and you get similar results from just plain mono or ethyl-ester pills.

Any whey is good, just get one you can stand the taste of.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

I'm looking into this protein - http://www.rogersfoods.com.au/index.html
$295.00 for a 20 kg/44lbs bag. They are not that far from me so I may give them a call and ask them about it. I am good friends with an osteopath who has a nutritionist working for her so I may pick her brains about it as well. I usually buy 5kg/11lbs bags of protein for around $150. I've used PVL and Gold Standard in the last 12 months.

Just get bulk creatine monohydrate, brand doesnt matter too much. Should be cheap.

Don't be too worried about creatine. Sites like BodyBuilding.com give good advice, I use it all the time, but remember all the info they give you is the info the companies give them. Every product seems to give you the best results.
You get what you pay for.
Years ago I used to buy Growling Dog Creatine. The stuff would not disolve in water very well and tasted like sand when going down. I then moved onto effervescent creatine which was better. Visit a local supplement store and get their advice, that's the best advice I can give you.

I'm happy with Anabolic Switch, it has 7 different forms of creatine in it.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

I'd advise you to get Controlled Labs Green Magnitude before anything else. Good taste, good quality for a creatine product, and pretty affordable.
