well i was becoming a little too dependent on the(4 scoops before workout, twice a day). so i cut back to 2 scoops the last couple days and had horrible headaches and felt like **** haha. anyone else experience a kick from the NO?
it isn't a kick from no-xplode, it's a common feeling from caffeine withdrawal. See people who go without their "morning coffee" and it will be similar to what you are experiencing.
There is an easier and cheaper way to get sugar + caffeine as a pre-work out supplement than from no xplode
Here is some information about caffeine: Caffeine FAQ | Coffee and Caffeine FAQ
Taken from the website:
Here is NO-xplode's ingredients label. What they have is a "propriety blend" meaning you the consumer don't know EXACTLY what amounts of each ingredients you are taking in.Regular caffeine consumption reduces sensitivity to caffeine. When caffeine intake is reduced, the body becomes oversensitive to adenosine. In response to this oversensitiveness, blood pressure drops dramatically, causing an excess of blood in the head (though not necessarily on the brain), leading to a headache.
This headache, well known among coffee drinkers, usually lasts from one to five days, and can be alleviated with analgesics such as aspirin. It is also alleviated with caffeine intake (in fact several analgesics contain caffeine dosages).
Often, people who are reducing caffeine intake report being irritable, unable to work, nervous, restless, and feeling sleepy, as well as having a headache. In extreme cases, nausea and vomiting has also been reported.

Yup the caffeine definitely causes headaches as withdrawl symptoms. When I went off caffeine for a week, the first few days I got some PM headeaches, but those went away quite quickly as I was only taking 200-300mg of caffeine/day.
that's a pretty crazy dosage protocol. definately wouldn't recommend doing that for an extended period of time. i make it a point not really to go over a heaping scoop of nanovapor. product lasts longer and i really don't need supplements to assist me in getting a "pump" can do that on my own.
The kiddies sure do love those shiney bottles!. BSN/MUSCLETECH is what all the kool kids swear by these days.
ya it was a pretty high dose but it didnt really phase me, ive been in recovery from much harder drugs the past 8months. caffienes kinda like sugar compared to what i was doing hah
I used NO explode for the summer like two summers ago, after a while my eye started to twitch i got so worried because of it i went to the eye doctor and he said it was the caffeine in the NO explode.. enough to make my eye twitch!!!!! needless to say i stopped taking no explode... and BSN products
never got the "****s" with vapor and it's a decent product t-bone, just so happens to have muscletech's ridiculous marketing and labeling behind it. however, muscletech bashing is old news, grow up buddy. just because you use controled labs or something doesn't make you cooler than someone who uses bsn or muscletech. true story
Just my experience, and some other friends experience too Behemoth. But if it works for someone, then by all means they should use it!
