    Looking for a Pre-workout Supplement


    My buddy recommended NO Explode, obviously a popular choice, but I have heard good things about RPM. So, in your opinion, which is best?

    It all really depends on what you want from the product, like whether you want creatine, beta-alanine, arginine/vaso-dialators, caffiene/stims, aminos/protein, and carbs in it or not (plus a plethora of other things i can't recall).

    I'll throw some popular ones out there for you to look into though: RPM (my fav), NO shotgun, Xtend/purple wraath, white flood, Smash, Steel Edge, Ragnorok, PrimalN20, Vasocharge, Animal Pump, Chaos...

    I usually go with 2-3 Rpm about one hour pre-workout and then about a half a scoop of Smash 30min pre-workout. This combo makes me feel like i can fly. Smash is pretty cheap on np and it's definitely worth it in my opinion.

    i've grown to hate proprietary blends. though they are convenient, and for those who aren't very knowledgable about supplements and ingredients, they're great. I started with NO xplode, but the effects quickly dwindled. I much prefer NP's ultimate mass pump stack, simple, cheap, and has not let me down yet.

    RPM doesn't have creatine or beta alanine. It's a different product.

    I'd stack RPM with stim-free Ragnarok or Clout.

    using rampage right now from AX, not that bad.

    I liked omega sports Power jolt a lot. they are both pill form which i liked.

    tried NO EXP and a few others, they weren't that bad. some worked, some tasted like ass. one thing was common though: all expensive. OS is cheap and effective.

    I haven't ordered anything yet, I was going to place a fairly large order, but some unforeseen expenses have come up that have delayed things......that being said I'm pretty sure I'm going to give RPM a run.

    Methyl Efx


    Methyl efx is with out a doubt the nastiest tasting sh.t out there...but from all the others that ive tried, s250, vapor, xplode, supercharge, xpand, cold fusion...it definately the one with the most kick. I have not tried rpm...who makes it, is it available on the internet only or do local nutrition stores carry it? I wouldnt mind trying it.

    Serious though, you guys out there with an iron clad gut (like me) give methyl its day in court, i think youll be very pleased.

    Yeah, I have to say RPM, I just got it and tried it at 4 caps and I was blown away. Stims don't do anything for me, but I definately felt the drive and especially the pumps.

    Today I took 5 caps today with Ragnarok about 30 mins preworkout and felt like I was 15 and had started CM again. The pumps were freakin' out of the world and I looked like I put a good 1 inch on everything.

    I think RPM just became a staple; this stuff is legit.

    Ok, here was my morning workout:

    Had 1/4c of oatmeal, 1 scoop of whey protein(20g protein), and box of raisins, and water to mix it all together. A little over an hour later I had my first 3 capsules of RPM. Started weights an hour later. This is in know way, shape, or form me trying to discredit this product.... but I felt nothing with it. My stats: 6'2" at about 182.

    I don't know... like most here are probably going to tell me... JUST TAKE MORE.... but I don't want to have to keep taking more for it to work and spend more money. I want a product that takes effect in minimal doses.... not having to pop pill after pill. I want my veins to pop out like mad and have the drive to lift every weight in the room when I workout.... and I hope, in time, this one will be the one!!

    later
