    I'm having good results with one now, but then again I'm only 178. Not looking forward to 2-3 scoops that stuff gets expensive. I know, I know there is cheaper and better out there, but for now I have No Xplode!

    It was sarcasm. That's one of the reasons why it is a tested substance by the IOC.

    Anyone tried the Shotguns? I usually have 2 cans of shooters in a day, been up to 3 on 'long' days.

    I tried one of the 'Doubleshot's' the other day. Made my head pound.

    yeah I was thinking the same thing, I was also wondering why they
    stated:

    The main ingredients of energy drinks are caffeine, sugar, taurine and glucuronolactone.
    When you see that one can is 300 calories, if you're smart you'll opt for a diet/'low-carb' version. That said, 2 of the 4 ingredients are not present in significant amounts if at all...

    i really dont even drink them for the "energy" Like the ABB, VPX, Spike and BBing based ones i do.
    The average joe ones dont phase me and i just like the taste 80% of the time.

    HAHAHA funny you say that because thats how its becoming with me and Spike's. I love the taste and the insane energy is a nice "side effect" I guess you could call it.

    Spike is probably the best. I like the lime flavor.

    Most of the energy drinks out there taste good and have enough caffeine to get me going.


    I hate redline. That is sides in a bottle.

    omg, I had this ABB drink once and felt so insane, it wasn't just a stimulant effect like caffeine/ephedra, etc, I felt unnaturally strong, and aggressive too. I can't remember what it was called, but it was in a clear bottle with a label instead of the silver 'shot' containers. it was syrupy and gross even when ice cold, but I drank half of it before capping the rest for later on, and was seriously glad I didn't just chug the whole thing all at once like I often will with the typical grocery store energy drinks like monster, rock star, etc.

    Hmm, not sure what that one could have been.....I had a similar experiance with one called MethylSpeed man that sht was naaaasssstttyy, I'm guessing the Methyl was actually Meth cause damm. I think Iron Fortress was the maker but I don't remember (probably a side effect of drinking it lol)

    Jeez bro your just a hater, that statement makes you sound like one of those old ass guys who sits on their porch and yells at kids for riding skateboards and wearin baggy pants and sht lol.....We all know energy drinks are bad for you if you drink them all the time. But so is weight training, AAS use, Drinking, smoking, eating out, Breathing air ext.....The fact is that life is about choice, you will die, we all will! Sometimes how fast you reach your end has to do with the conscious decisions you make day in and out sometimes it does not.
    No offence to you T-bone I enjoy most of your posts and I understand that it's frustrating to live in a sht world where everything kills you and no one especially the Gov. gives a flying crap about you or your health!! Trust me I do, but dang brother this is an energy drink thread lol....

    There is a lot of caffeine, but they are also packed with vitamin B and other stuff.

    I like Kronik. It has a good kitchen sink blend. I think it even has glucosamine and milk thistle in it.


    Redline and Redline Xtreme overkill the stims.

    I've found that my stim level is like a bell shape curve. More is better to a certain peak then it goes all downhill.


    After drinking an entire bottle of Redline Xtreme in about 2 min, I've never started freaking out like I have before.

    Endorush made it hard for me to breathe for about 2 hours but Redline really just torched my CNS system and I crashed really hard off of it.



    It has gotten to the point where I need to drink (2) rockstars, full throttles, etc....the regular OTC energy drinks to get a kick.

    One can dosen't quite do it anymore.


    Even off of 2 cans I can still fall asleep within 1 hr of drinking them.

    The majority of the time when I am doing my evening graduate classes, I have to drink 2 energy drinks in order to make it through the night.

    For awhile I was trying to take it easy on my adrenals, but I think I'm going to have to postpone that till school is done.
