BSN NO-Xplode and Nitrix CEM-3
Has anyone tried these supplements?
Everything I've read has the risk of spin from sellers but it does sound interesting.
[BTW years since I've been here, good to see the site still around...and Jesper still bringing it home]
I've used No-Xplode and found that my endurance was slightly increased. Eg, i did my fastest ever 10k run while using this stuff. However, much like V12 Turbo which worked a treat for the first 1 or 2 cycles, they quickly loose their effect and are frankly a waste of money in my opinion.
Nothing has given me sustainable (natural) results like BCAA's, a good diet and plenty of rest, coupled with some seriously intense training.
However, i will say that i've never been a great responder to creatine. Getting that extra 1 or 2 reps per set for a few months was not worth $90 a tub. You can get this sort of increased performance just by changing your mental focus and attitude.
Thanks for thosse words TheDave, and welcome back :D!
I agree re attitude, training, diet and knowledge.
Being an easily convinced armchair physiologist though, I will give it a try. I'm looking for a 5-10% gain in running, so maybe its something to use in the lead-up. I have used creatine before and found it had a discernible effect on running stamina, just wondered if the NO factor added to that.
I will give it a go for one month and let the forum know.
