    Hey Guys...

    I have started seeing gains in the last 2 months to which I am excited. I currently take NOXplode but wanted to know should I be taking something else to get bigger and get a better pump?

    I hear guys at the gym say "I'm only taking creatine" is there a product out there that is good/better than taking NoXpolde?

    thanks

    You're a newbie, you don't need either of these. Creatine will help a little, but you don't need it. If you're working out correctly, you'll see hella gains no matter what. Just remember to eat! A ton!

    NOXplode is a nitro supplement. It'll give you more energy during your workout, and some claim it increases strength (on a short-term basis, i.e. 1 hour). If the claims are true, the benefit of nitro is the ability to do more cellular damage to your muscle tissue per work out; this could help you build more muscle faster. Other than the intense amounts of caffeine in NOX boosting your energy, I've found that the muscle-building effects are likely placebo.

    The effects of creatine are way different. It coverts to ATP in your body, giving you more energy during a work out. It helps retain water in your muscles, thus giving you a semi-pump even when you aren't working out. It helps shorten the recovery time between work outs. There's been a lot of scientific research on creatine, and it has proven to be one of the safest and most beneficial supplements you can take (even beyond its application to bodybuilding). Just make sure you drink a lot of water or you could suffer from dehydration.

    I've used both. NOX did nothing for me other than boost my energy and deplete my wallet. Creatine, on the other hand, has done everything it's claimed to do. Using it on and off, I've gained a good 60lbs of muscle over the last 4 years. Though this has less to do with supplementation, and more to do with diet and extremely hard, persistent work. There is no supplement that can replace hard, persistent, consistent work.

    Drop the NOXplode. Buy some creatine if you want. Either way, since you've only been working out for 2 months, you've got a good 4 more months of newbie-gains to make. Good luck!

    i agree with rezdylon. Going a little bit farther, if you already consume red meat regularly then really you don't need a creatine supplement either. Creatine is definitely one of the safest supplements and can be somewhat beneficial depending on the type of workouts/goals you may have, but anytime you can easily avoid taking a supplement through what you consume through your diet it is silly to waste your money on a supplement.

    Make sure your diet is 100% before you start adding any supplements.

    Not sure I'm a newbiw...I have been working out on NOX for 2 months but have been lifting for a good year and a half but maybe considering most guys have been doing it a good portion of their lives....I am a newbie

    I thought NOX was creatine? I guess maybe I asked the wrong question...I was asking if there was something better for me to take than NOX....

    Thanks for the input...I do listen to what you guys suggest!

    Ah, I interpreted your original post as meaning that you just started working out 2 months ago.

    Basically, I'm suggesting you drop NOXplode and buy a pure Creatine Monohydrate powder supplement and drink a cup of coffee or Mountain Dew before you work out to get the energy boost from the NOXplode. It'll save you a ton of money.

    Follow the loading instructions for the creatine if you want (I prefer to load), then continue with the tablespoon serving size daily thereafter and you should be golden.

    NoXplode makes me crazy (makes my ass explode lol)

    I do like how creatine bloats my chest up lol.



    When I buy supplement to try them out, I usually buy three of each companies products. In this case I bought NoXplode, cellmass, and nitrix.
    They worked a bit I guess but made me some what sick.
