N.O. Xplode vs Black Powder

I am almost finished with my first tub of N.O. Xplode, and I have used a bunch of single serving sticks of Black Powder to which I think I can draw a half decent comparison by now.

First, with N.O. Xplode, the energy surge is pretty intense. About 20 minutes after drinking, I get a pretty good burst of energy and I'm ready to go for my 20 minute warmup jog. Good energy, good focus, good pumps.

Despite the fact that you need to stock about 2.5 rolls of toilet paper per serving in the container, it's good stuff.:thumbs:


As for Black Powder, first off I think it mixes better and tastes better. The energy rush isn't quite as intense, but it is still plenty of motivation to do my thing. The focus seems better though, and it seems as if my veins stick out a bit more when I use this as opposed to N.O. Xplode. More pumps, more focus, more sustained energy (rather than a short, extreme burst).

So as far as performance goes, it seems as if Black Powder wins. I think it will be my next buy.

Yeah you don't want to use anything that blows your bowels out. Why stop there? Try Gaspari Nutrition [URL="http://www.priceplow.com/gaspari-nutrition/superpump-250"]SuperPump 250[/URL] next. I thought I liked Fast Twitch but this stuff gives me INSANE pumps. I have to use half a scoop cuz I went so crazy one time. I love it.

I saw Berto mentioned Fast Twitch. As far as I remember, it performed pretty well but tasted revolting. Just like chugging liquid artificial sweetener.

The more I look around, the more people seem to favor Black Powder. I will be buying a tub of that stuff and saying goodbye to N.O. Xplode. For those of you who have not tried Xplode, your best bet as far as performance goes is to take your dumbells into the bathroom with you. That way you will be far less distracted.

If I worked in their advertising department this is how I would run the ad...

That's hilarious man!

Don't even ask what happens to me when I take whey protein concentrate (I took a gamble and bought TEN pounds of Scivation Whey...)

My gas is unlike anything you've ever smelled before. I have some new pure isolate arrive today and can't wait. Neither can my roommate!

Most people can handle whey protein concentrate, but some of us get bad gas. I learned that I'm one of the not-so-lucky ones.

I never had any problems when I tried no xplode, but my friends that have used superpump all said it made them shit like crazy halfway through their workout they had to find a toilet fast!...now they call it SuperDump.

SuperDump. That's classic.

I guess the best thing is to ask for free samples before buying 2 pounds of the stuff. You can get a SuperPump sample [URL="http://www.jdoqocy.com/click-3064488-10409943?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.bodybuilding.com%2Fstore%2Fgn%2Fsuper.html"]here[/URL].

I have tried most of the NO Products, The company had a special on



Which I've been using. It's better than most, but tastes like shit. Need to make more flavors.

I tried N.O. Xplode and Nano Vapor from Muscletech. I liked the N.O. Xplode for the pumps and the intensity. SuperPumps are good too! I haven't tried Black Powder...though. You guys like it better? How do they compare to Animal Pumps?

It is really going to vary from person to person. Some people might have a bad reaction to one while others have a bad reaction to others.

I know it is going to be different for everyone depending on their body chemistry. I personally like the NO-Xplode taste, to me its like a liquid pixie stick, have taken Xyience and SuperPump as well. Xyience is a low taste product with not as big gains as the others. SuperPump is a very close product but yet again I have had the energy boost and High intensity workouts with NO-Xplode and gladly stick by the BSN name on their Preworkout

I never had a problem with n.o explode. I didn't really get that rush of energy either though. I take cell mass now by the creators of n.o explode I enjoy it alot more. james

I've been using NO Explode for a while and the energy that one gets from it is pretty insane, but yeah it does make you shit quite a bit. Recently i switched to NanoVapor and i think that it gives you a better pump than NO Explode. NO Explode's effects taper off. They did in my case.

I use N.O explode currently, when I first started taking it, it gave me pretty good energy but not so much anymore but that's probably because I have used so many energy supplements and my body is just use to it. But I do like it as it gives me mental focus and enough energy to get me through the workout, oh yea and it does give me s.hitz from time to time. But anyways I'm about out of N.O explode, so what do you guys think is the best pre-work out mix similar to N.O explode?

NO works best for me. I have never had any stomach problems with it. The only pre-workout I had trouble with was super pump

I know I haven't been here for awhile, and I've recently switched BACK to NO-Xplode, with the willingness to put up with the down (bathroom) time. Very irritating side effect but I just can't seem to find a pre-workout drink that can match the taste and the insane rush. I guess it's popular for a reason.

By the way, when is BSN supposed to be re-vamping NO-Xplode, with their new "Evolution" series? I keep reading ads but see nothing in the stores.
