xpand or jacked. cant decide. jacked is only like 23 bucks
my experience with xpand has been great...used to use BSN...gave me anxiety (kept me up), due to the extra stimulants...very happy with Xpand just watch out that your not pissing creatine Ethl if you take a creatine supp in addition.
Jack3d. if possible,
what was your experience with it other than you hated it?
You said you experienced no energy from it? Did you take it on an empty stomach (i.e. approx. 90-120 min. after a meal).
Growth? You don't grow from taking supplements. You grow from eating more calories than you burn, lifting hard, and sleeping 8+a night.
Four weeks is an extremely short period of time to be able to accurately and effectively assess anything.
Don't listen to me though. I don't know what I'm talking about.
pump = energy and feeling i wanna lift hard. i dunno how to explain it. the original NO shotgun gave me a huge pump and got my energy sky high with no crash. and no crap. i know how to take a supplement and i know how to eat and train. i dont expect growth ONLY from a supplement. i DO expect to see something. i didnt see anything. and u can see how it works for your workouts in one dose. at least, i can. thats why i ask for samples for pre workouts. 4 weeks is plenty of time
well thats what i meant. i dont expect to see major gains. i do expect to see energy and/or a pump pr mental focus from first dose. didnt see it in 4 weeks with jack3d. NO SHOTGUN, the original one, is the best pre workout i have EVER had.
Just curious, why do you want a product that gives you a good pump? Pumps are nothing but mental masturbation, they don't do anything for actual muscle growth.
Im about to get some xpand. I have tried samples of Scivation Vasocharge and it's alos another to consider.
I've used tons of preWO supps, very few are something i'd re-buy.
On a scale 1 -10, 10 being high i'd say...
WTF Pumped = 9, gotta leave room for better
NO-Shotgun = 7
Ragnarok = 5
Anadraulic Pump = 8, but need to dose higher
NO-Xplode = 5
Personal mixes have worked best i think...
Glycerol mono sterate and 10-14oz water is AMAZING.
Arginine, mono, cit. malate.
Glutamine alone was great.
If Xpand doesnt satisfy me ill be going back to my own mixes. Cheap and in some juice taste fine.
