Joeflex73 takes on NOS-FX (AX Sponsored, Alpha test)
NOS-FX is a new pump product being worked on by Anabolic Xtreme. It is currently in capsule form. Dosing for workouts for guys over 200lbs like myself, is 6 capsules. A libido dose to be taken before sex is 8 capsules, and will also be tested.
So let's get down to business...about me .....right now
6'4 265 bf%, guessing high teens.
Diet: Cut, Average Macro breakdown (40/45/15) F/P/C, 2600 Calories/day
Stimulant X, 2 when I wake up
This is the least supplements that I've been on in a while!
Previous pump product experience: N.O. Xplode, NaNo Vapor, Cold Fusion, SuperPump 250, White Flood. Each got at least a 1 jug run, or enough samples in a row to get a feel (think I had 25 packets of SP250 from orders and last years AC).
Training Protocol:4-5 days a week with 3-5 cardio sessions added in. Rep ranges anywhere from 4-5 to 30+ depending on the bodypart.
Today, I dosed about 1hr. 40 mins after a meal and 40 mins before I sat into the Leg Press. I took 6 capsules with 20 oz. of water. I also made sure to bring a water bottle with me, and made sure I finished it during the course of the workout.
Leg Press:360x25, 540x20, 720x15, 900x10
+1 on the 900, didn't notice anything highly out of the ordinary on this exercise
Leg Extensions (single):175x20, 200x15, 250x8 both x25, 250x8 both x27
Now we're getting somewhere! The final 2 sets especially got me going.
Hammer Strength Leg Curls:45x40, 90x15, 115x12, 140x9
Hammies got going a bit. By this time it was definitely quite a feeling to walk.
Leg Press Calf Extensions:360, 4sets: 50, 60, 60, 75
Calves tightened and burned, but nothing noticeable on them.
The high rep exercise were where I could tell a difference from baseline. I haven't used a pump product regularly since last spring. Very intriguing start.
Missed a shot at the libido dose. Tuesday might be a good opportunity.

Today I did back. My dose was taken with caffeine this time. I took 2 Stim X and 6 capsules with 24oz. of water approximately 45 minutes before my 1st set of back. During the workout, I also drank another 1 liter of water overall.
Dumbbell Rows:60's x20, 100's x20, 120's x18, 120's x18
+3 on the 120's. Wanted to Barbell Rows, Smith was taken and some knucklehead was doing curls in the squat rack.....
Wide Grip Front Pulldowns:112.5x10 raise 125x10 raise 137.5 x10, 150x12, 175x10, 200x8
Had a nice back pump by now, but my rep range was a bit higher than normal.
Stiff Arm Pulldowns:110x20, 140x15, 170x12, 125x15 (squeeze)
Standing Pulley Rows:125x15, 125x15, 100x15 (squeeze)
Back work was good. I liked it more with caffeine, I felt pretty nice and angry. I made sure because of it to take in more water than usual. This was on a completely empty stomach, as I hadn't eaten all day before going in. I have a good back pump going in my lats, but that's usually not a problem area for me. atm, I'm not sure if it's the slightly higher reps or if it's the product. I think it's a little of both, because I do do some high rep sets regardless of my training goal.

Took a libido dose this evening. Libido dose is 8 capsules (taken an hour before). Didn't note anything out of the ordinary from it. I'll probably try it 1 more time like this.
01-29-2009, 01:49 AM
Notables: Back is quite sore today. Yesterday's volume and weight was really in a normal range, but I am more sore than usual.
Today was chest day. I did a similar work to last week to get a true feeling of the compound. I dosed this time farther out, about 2 1/2 hours before I touched a weight (man was I starving after!!)
Hammer Strength Incline Press:180x20, 270x10, 290x7, 310x5
Incline Flies:50's x15, 70's x8, 80's x6, 80's x5
Cable Crossovers:80's x15, 95's x13, 65's x15 (squeeze)
Dumbbell Underhand Crossovers:25's x15, 30's x12, 35's x10 drop 20's x8
Pump would be a bit more than normal I'd say. The product is definitely more noticeable at the higher rep ranges. My focus seems a bit sharper than it had been, overall.

Bi's today. Needed to blow off some steam (God I hate the Steelers)
Standing Alternating Curl:30's x20, 40's x15, 50's x10, 40's x15
Already a nice good pump going.
Hammer Strength Preacher Curl:70x20, 90x12, 100x8
V-Bar Cable Curls:110x20, 140x10, 140x12
Today, I really was able to feel this compound. I took it about an hour and 15 min. before I got to the gym. Final sets, the pumps were pretty extreme. I had some veins popping I hadn't seen since the end of my cut last summer (when I was 230). So far, on high reps, I am liking this.

Subbing to follow a fellow Metal maniac's log!

2 workouts to report, since the website was down when I last came here the other night.
As an experiment, when I went in later this evening (2/3) to do cardio I took purple wraath with me to get a comparison. But first...
Dose taken on an empty stomach 45 minutes before my workout.
Shoulders and Tri's
Machine Shoulder Press:150x20, 180x15, 230x10, 250x8
Palms in Dumbbell Press:35's x20, 45's x12, 55's x6, 60's x5
Side Lateral Raises:30's x10 drop 20's x10 drop 12's x12, 30's x10 drop 20's x10 drop 12's x11, 35's x10 drop 25's x10 drop 15's x12 drop 8's x17
Shoulder pumps? wtf I never get those. The burnout definitely had it going though.
Dumbbell Extensions:50x30, 80x15
Dumbbell Kickbacks:50's x15, 50's x15, 60's x10
One arm Dumbbell Extensions:25's x15, 30's x12, 35'x 10
Very happy with the overall workout. No PR's, but good numbers nonetheless. Drank like a fish, 2 24oz. cups while I was there.
Came back 8 hours later for cardio and a little experimentation.
30 mins Eliptical:457 Cals
As far as endurance goes, it felt pretty close. But one thing to remember is my comparisons so far were immediately following a workout, so of course I was able to keep my BPM down and thus go a little harder. Between the 2 I found the endurance to be pretty close. 1 thing I did like more about NOS-fx is my face doesn't tingle like on PW
Did back last night (2/4). Passed out last night before I put it on here.
I didn't dose last night. I wanted to get a base line feel again.
Dumbbell Rows:80x20, 120x12, 120x15, 120x20 PR
Don't think I warmed up quite enough....still the 120's for 20 is pretty damn good.
Stiff Arm Pulldowns:140x15, 170x12, 200x8, 200x8
Standing Reverse Flies:45's x15, 55's x12, 35's x20, 35's x20
Solid overall. The gym was packed so, again, I couldn't necessarily get in the movements I wanted.
Comparisons, I usually get a good pump in my lats, and today was no different. It wasn't quite as good as back day the other day and my endurance wasn't quite as good either. I was spent after 12 sets, whereas I felt at 15 sets I could maybe have gone on. Endurance gets pretty good on this stuff. Pump, at this time for me has been dependent on bodypart and rep range.
Legs sometime today.
02-05-2009, 06:23 PM
Legs today. Dosed 45 minutes before my workout.
Leg Press:450x25, 630x20, 810x12, 950x6 PR
Leg Extensions (single):187.5x20, 225x15, 250x10
Dumbbell Lunges:55's x10, 70's x8
Hammer Strength Leg Curls:90x20, 135x15, 160x10 PR
Leg Press Calf Extensions:450, 4 sets:60, 65, 56, 54
Kinda died out on calf extensions, but I was pretty spent by then. I consider the 950 a PR even though I've done the 1,000 for a few reps before, but not a set of 6.
Same feelings today as I've had lately (more endurance, above average pump). The only thing I noticed is I didnt feel as dry, wasnt drinking as much as usual.

Today, took my dose 30 minutes before my workout with 24oz. of water. Had chest and cardio.
Flat Dumbbell Press:50's x15, 70's x12, 80's x10, 90's x4
Hammer Strength Incline Press:180x15, 230x12, 230x10, 230x10
Underhand Dumbbell Press:25's x20, 30's x15, 35's x10, 20s x20 (squeeze)
30 mins Eliptical:439 Cals
Just a crap workout. Nothing to do with the product, got to the 90's and didn't do near as well as I should and was kinda in a funk for the rest of the workout and just kinda went through the motions. Been quite a while since I had a workout like this, but it happens sometimes. I'll rebound with today's workout for sure.

Today, Bi's and cardio
I've been hitting bi's on their own for the last 3 weeks or so, why? Because I want the gd things to grow!! Having arms my size with my back/shoulder/chest size is kinda infuriating lol.
So onto today:
Standing Alternating Curl:30's x18, 40's x12, 50's x9
Went stricter on form than I usually do.
Spider Curls: 25's x15, 30's x10, 35's x6
Love these, get a long stretch going.
Standing Concentration Curls:30's x15, 40's x12, 25's x13 (slow, squeeze)
30 mins Eliptical: 454 Cals
By the time I got halfway through the Spider's, my arms were full bigtime. Had a top notch pump tonight, one of the better ones ever. With high reps this stuff is really shining. Cardio endurance was definitely up tonight too, was able to push a higher intensity level at a higher RPM and still keep my BPM at a good rate. All around very satisfying workout tonight.
02-09-2009, 01:24 AM
dunno how i missed this. in !!
i'm going to play around with my dosing this week - from 3 hours out till 15 minutes before workouts.
02-11-2009, 04:01 PM
Tri's and Shoulders last night Didn't dose last night, didn't really have time.
Machine Shoulder Press:140x25, 180x15, 220x10, 250x7
Front Raises:30's x15, 35's x12, 40's x11, 25's x10 (pause at the top)
Side Laterals:25's x15, 30's x13, 35's x10, 30's x10 drop 20's x10 drop 12's x10
Standing Dumbbell Tricep Extensions:40x25, 60x15, 75x10, 90x10
Tricep Cable Pushdowns:125x20, 155x15, 185x9, 185x8
Went super strict on tris. I like the way my arms have felt after these last 2 w/o's going very strict.
Pump was average for the volume, timing and rep ranges. This was to be expected without dosing. I will dose for today's workout however.
02-11-2009, 04:36 PM
thanks. now i don't want to mess around with my dosing. dosed 2 hours out today, and had a phenomenal workout. after NOS-FX dosing, i took in around 1700 calories and really had a couple increases at the gym that surprised me.
02-12-2009, 01:28 AM

Stiff Arm Pulldowns (slow):140x12, 140x12
30 mins Eliptical:430 Cals
Very solid work, despite a headache the whole time. Afterwards, a libido dose. Didn't notice anything abnormal, but wanted to give it a second go around. This time, I dosed about 2 hours before activity. Didn't let my girlfriend know, so we could keep some spontaneity.
02-12-2009, 04:16 AM
Headache's are an annoyance when trying to workout, that's for sure.
Kudos on trying to push through it!

Chest and cardio earlier today. Had a bit of school work and it was a busy night at the hotel tonight so couldn't really get on til now. They changed the menu at dinner theater which was nice, cause I had a lot of baked monterey chicken and there were a few bistro steaks left (think mini filets). So I feasted tonight!
Hammer Strength Incline Press:180x20, 230x12, 270x8, 290x6
Incline Flies:35's x20, 50's x15, 60's x10, 60's x10
Cable Crossovers:80's x20, 80's x20, 95's x15
Underhand Dumbbell Crossovers:25's x15, 30's x12, 35's x10 drop 20's x10 drop 12's x8
30 mins Eliptical: 482 Cals
Solid work. Pump, again was above average. Only one or two more doses left. I'll give a final thought when that day comes.
02-19-2009, 04:17 AM
Last nights Bi's workout. Was pretty busy with Valentine's day and all that, so I was pretty fresh.
Standing Alternating Curl:30's x15, 40's x12, 45's x10, 25's x20 (slow)
Spider Curls:25's x12, 25's x12, 30's x8
V-bar Cable Curls:110x20, 125x15, 125x12
Sticking with the status quo, higher reps and strict form. So far, the last 2 workouts have felt great. Had an amazing pump at 7 caps at a 2 1/2 hours out dose. 1 last 6 cap workout and that will finish this log.
02-19-2009, 04:17 AM
Legs tonight. I am lucky I can walk
Pause Reps Leg Press (3 count):270x20, 360x15, 450x12, 540x9
How do you make light weight seem heavy? Hold it there for a 3 count lol.
Barbell Lunges:135x12, 185x8, 205x8, 225x6
Leg Extensions (single):175x20, 212.5x15, 250x8 (both) superset 250x20
Hammer Strength Leg Curls:90x20, 135x12, 160x6
Leg Press Calf Extensions:450, 4 sets of 40
Diesel leg workout. Was my final dose tonight, taken 45 minutes prior. Pump wasn't ultra noteworthy, above average imo. I'll have a full write up on my overall thoughts later this evening.
