Re: N.O. Explode????

I need my cup of coffee before I lift or bike... and music.

I see guys at the local college gym chug NO Explode before they lift and I can't tell you I see any difference between the ones that use it and the ones that don't. Other than of course the fact that they're a lot more talkative.

I'd stay away from it.

Re: N.O. Explode????

If you are taking another NO product in pill form (NO2, Nitrix), then the drink will make your pumps more intense (as long as you take it right before you lift). I haven't taken it for any WODs yet.

Black Powder by MRI is about the same, I keep it at work so if there's no coffee, I can still get some caffeine.

It always makes me have to relieve my bowels within about 45 minutes...

Re: N.O. Explode????

Forget that stuff. A cup of coffee and pinch of Kodiak inbetween your lip and gum should be all the stimulants you need.

Re: N.O. Explode????

I take a pre-workout supplement, but I don't think it is all it's cracked up to be. I tastes great though. I definitely second the music too.

Re: N.O. Explode????

I think someone else already said this. Its not bad before a strenght workout. I took it once before a metcon, and I had to stop half way through because Pukie was knocking at the door. I haven't touched it since.

Re: N.O. Explode????

Ryan,

Ifind it the opposite. If I use a stimulant before a strength workout, I have no tightness

Re: N.O. Explode????

To be honest, I haven't taken it in quite some time. If I recall, I seemed to have a little extra in the tank for the later sets/reps. Could just be the placebo effect.

I think I still have some lying around somewhere. If so, I'll give it a shot for the overhead squats and report back.

Re: N.O. Explode????

Ok, once again the NO Explode just made me feel nauseous during my workout. Thinking back, I think I only ever really benefited from it when I was doing body building type workouts in an air conditioned globo. It helps with all of the volume.

As far as crossfitting in my garage in 85 degree heat, I'll never do it again. If this would have been a metcon day it would have been terrible.
