Recently I’ve been given some tubs of superpump250, NO-explode and other various samples of NO products. This is the first I have tried these and they do come with some side effects. A lot of people experience the craps, a nice way of putting it I guess. It doesn’t bother me because I work out alone at home, however if I were working at a public gym I would not take these things. I would be known as the guy who empties the bathroom real quick.
As far the products go, I kind of like them. They definately get you pumped up to lift, especially on days when you may be drained. Most of them have caffeine in them and a shitload of other proprietary blends of vitamins and other brain stims like vinpocetine.
Obviously it may not be best to take these for long periods of time beacause they are pretty good stimulants and for free, can’t complain about my stash. They definately get me ready to lift more than any Spike product, but it depends on if you can handle the side effects, nasty gas and taking the Browns to the Superbowl during workout. However, I consistently have more energy all through the workout and can go longer.
