Athletes or exercise fanatics, are you using supplements?

Recommended Posts

i use a whey protein mixed with Udo's Choice Wholesome Fast Food from time to time (4x weekly), i also take Atro-phex before my really big workouts. it's an endurance enhancer for the most part.

I am a huge fan of NO-Explode. I tried Atro-Phex and wondered if somehow I might be hurting my body. It seemed like a lot of stimulants and I handle stimulants pretty well. BSN recommends using them together along with Nitrix and Syntha-6 or Lean Dessert but that's a lot to do and costs too much.



Right now I am using VPX NO-Shotgun for preworkout and VPX NO-Synthesize for during and post work outs. VPX NO-Shotgun is kind of like NO-Explode but without the hit.


Occasionally, I'll drink MuscleMilk. They have great flavors.

i've been curious about No-explode but have been weary of the price plus i haven't heard a female review of the product. i might have to give it a try!


It's powerful but I guess if you can handle Atrophex, you can handle NO-Explode. It tastes good but you do get a hit (I like the pump but it's not for everyone). Um, it does make you go the bathroom like caffeine does.

Not into stimulants here, but I've considered trying this supplement: http://www.vitacost.com/NSI-D-Ribose-Energy-Formula-Bioenergy-Ribose-with-ALA-ALC



I've not had my stimulants for about a month now (just coffee). I do miss having it in the morning. Other than that, I am fine without them (which is nice to know).


What are results are you hoping to get with that particular product? (Just curious)

Well, I wouldn't mind an energy lift and I'm also looking for anything that will help make my metabolism as efficient as possible. Not to artificially speed it up or give me a false sense of energy/health, but I'm still losing weight and want to maximize it, ya know? I hesitate to take anything at all because I enjoy the effects of exercise all on its own and don't want to mask any issues, I guess, but I'm *very* tired lately and would like some help recovering from my more intense workouts, too.
