Default supplement help

alright, im just getting back into lifting and trying to make the most of my workouts.

I have been looking for a supplement but am confuzed by all the products out there.

What stands out to me is the

Bsn nitrix tablets

bsn no-xplode


I would like to see gains with in the first week or two, looking to put on some lean muscle mass and acheive a more pumped look.

or would i be better off with something else?

My question is why are you choosing a NO based supplement?

There has been alot of discussion about NO products on this board. You should try and find some of the posts. Basically it doesn't do what you're paying it to do. You'd be much better off with your basic whey, maltodextrin, dextrose, and creatine.

I'm once again with Kane on this one. Do a search on No2 in this forum, I've posted a ton of info on this subject. I advise you to read "How to choose the right protein" thread. Picking the right protein and taking it at the right times is the number one factor that seems to elude almost everybody.

For example, if you were to buy some regular creatine mono for $10, whey protein for $28, and some kind of casein/egg protein for around $30-40..You'll have twice the potential for growth at half the price you probably spent on all those BSN products. Besides the protein and creatine, invest in some grape juice..Loaded with yummy dextrose.

Taken together it would look something like this:

Morning: 1 scoop whey
Midmorning: 1 scoop casein/egg protein (optional)
Preworkout: 2 scoops whey (30-45 minutes prior)
Postworkout: 2 scoops whey in water, 1 tall glass of grape juice w/ 10 grams creatine
Bedtime: 1-2 scoops casein/egg protein OR 2 cups cottage cheese

You get the picture. Soooo much better than taking some no2 morning and afternoon on an empty stomach, and noxplode preworkout. Using all that No2 encourages you to both not eat, and not take in any bcaa's/protein preworkout which is vital.. I hate that it recommends an empty stomach...Matter of fact, I hate no2 period.

0311 is right in that if you are looking to maximize gains you need to have your bases covered with a good protein shake, glutamine, multivitamin and creatine.

Use the supps listed above along with a solid nutrition / training plan and you'll be packing on muscle in no time... just stay consistent. Don't slack with nutrition on the weekends.. you'll go no where

Personally I happen to like NO supps... but they are more like icing on the cake. I really like Gaspari Super Pump 250.. it was great for getting jacked before a workouts... I also felt "fuller" while on it. Met-rx amped is cool as well but tastes like medicine.. I'm currently using the above stack along with Met-Rx Amped ECN and have been noticing gains in strength and body weight.

Here's what I posted a while back about No2. Really just a huge compilation of info to read comparing claims and science.
