    Recommend a pre-workout supplement?

    Hey guys, I'm looking for a pre-workout supplement to make my workouts more intense/effective and I need some help. I had been looking at Superpump250, NO-XPLODE, Vassive-NO and Animal Pump.

    I have been working out about 4-5 times a week for about a year now. I'm 6'1'' 175 and I'm looking to bulk up and get leaner at the same time, as I'm mostly lean but have too much fat on my abs, chest and sides.

    My current stack is Optimum Nutrition's Gold Standard Whey Protein (which I've always taken) as well as their Vassive-CE post workout creatine complex, which was recommended by a friend. I just started using the creatine, but I'm definitely liking it so far. I was thinking about just sticking with ON and getting their pre-workout Vassive-NO, but I've seen very few reviews of the product. People rave about NO-XPLODE but you guys don't seem to like it at all.

    So, what would you guys recommend for me? I'm kinda short on funds as well, so the cheaper the better

    I don't like NO any less really than any of the others.These NO products always loose effect after a short period of time. But these are good for a while,

    BSN NO Xplode w/AVPT, 2.71 Lbs. 60 serv

    And this one is good and tastes best

    I tried the no shotgun and it was effective but i couldn't stand the taste. Poured it outside and the dogs ran away from home and my neighbors moved.If you can stomach the taste though it was great.

    White flood by controlled labs is my favorite pre-w drink. ALso, suprisingly, nano-tech has received high praise from alot of people. Ive never tried it, but i havn't heard a bad review.

    Hey thanks alot for all the suggestions guys. I'll have to check those out. I'm still waiting to hear what people think about Optimum Nutrition's Vassive-NO, as ON is a great company and I'm already using a bunch of their supplements.

    Anybody tried Vassive-NO or know anyone who has tried it?

    I havn't used it but am sure the Optium version is a good product as they are one of the best companies available who are still pretty fair to the consumer in their pricing.

    One thing to add is that I believe the creatine in superpump is monohydrate, so depending on if you are a responder, it may or may not work as well for you. I used to swear on NO Xplode, however, it ceases to work after about a month. Not to knock the two mentioned products, I would try the Animal Pump or the ON product.

    me personally, I think NO is a waste of time.

    Thanks for the advice man. I think I am definitely going to try out the Vassive-NO from ON. It has all the same key ingredients that NO-XPLODE has, but it is cheaper. And the directions never tell you to increase doseage like NO-XPLODE, so that makes it even cheaper if it works. I'm going to wait til' I need more Whey Protein before I get it to save on shipping, but as soon as I try it, I'll definitely let you guys know how I like it.

    NO Shotgun, mix a little crystal lite if it tastes that bad. Or mix maybe 4-5 ounces of water and just chug it real quick.
