N.O-XPLODE Review By Matt Canning
BSN NO-XPLODE is a very popular nitric oxide supplement if not the most popular nitrix oxide supplement on the market today. It won the Muscle Builder of the Year and Nitrix Oxide of the Year award for 2005 and 2006. I had never really knew it was meant for building size before reading about it online and I had always looked at it as being a top product for achieving excellent pumps in the gym and to me the motivation from getting a great pump at the gym inreases my motivation outside of the gym in areas such as nutrition and rest. A pump is almost addictive in a sense, and I'm reminded of the Arnold quote which was simply translated to "a pump is like cumming", and expanded below by bodybuilding journalist Rick Wayne:
"Bodybuilders have gotten a shellacking by a bunch of skinny little pencil pushers who call themselves psychologists. They don't know. Most of them are unfit skinny little runts. They are getting their rocks off - these little skinnies - by picking on the big guys. The big guys have no brains and the big guys are just bloated up insecure people. We considered that kind of criticism the criticism of cretins - you know, the guys who didn't know what they were doing. Or, that guys were using those lines to justify their own physical inferiorities. Let me tell you this - there is an orgasmic feel, and a long lasting orgasmic feel about working out. Your endorphins, and the muscles pumped up with blood. And that is why I suppose that once you become a serious bodybuilder you never really give it up. So only we can really explain what it feels like to go into a gym and pump up. So let the others laugh - they will never know."
I LOVE a fantastic pump. In order to maximize a pump without using supplements, I find that being sure to do my workout after consuming at least two full meals before my workout and staying properly hydrated will do the job. I also find that an excess of carbohydrates will add to the pump, with less when eating higher protein sources. I try to carb up thoroughly if I am to expect a great pump at the gym - but that is the natural route. With pump inducing products such as NO XPLODE, I find myself getting a great pump even if my nutrition has been less than stellar the day of or the day before my workout and absolutely fantastic when my nutrition is stellar and on point!
From Adrian Lesey's review of BSN NO XPLODE:
BSN's N.O-XPLODE is a recent advancement in supplement technology. It claims to assist in muscle endurance, pump, strength and size, while increasing mental focus and energy.
Adrian agreed that NO XPLODE did what it said it would and so do I! For more info, read on...
Let me start by saying that I used BSN for just one day - yep, just one single day! And I will tell you right now that it acts THAT fast and you will absolutely be able to tell the effects immediately. It was kind of a busy day for me but after reading the product description I realized that I had to wait 30-45 minutes for NO XPLODE to kick in and so I burned some time and hit the weight room. Before starting my workout I was already very worked up and active. I'm not sure if that was due to my running around in the time before my workout began or if it was due to the actual effects of the NO XPLODE or due to a placebo effect.
As I mentioned above, it is important to eat a proper bodybuilding diet in order to get the best pumps possible - in my opinion this really all comes down to eating lots of carbs and drinking lots of water! Simple as that. I will admit that my diet on the day I used NO XPLODE was not that great at all! It consisted of two huge hamburgers about four hours pre-workout and a protein shake that I was drinking during my workout. Lots of protein, but very little carbs! I was somewhat hydrated, but could have stood to be even more hydrated. I started my arms workout which looked a little something like this:
- Standing alternate dumbbell curls. I did six sets for 5-12 reps depending on the weight used.
- Standing barbell curls with the olympic bar. I did three sets.
- Four sets of overhead dumbbell extensions for triceps.
Looking at my workout above, I can't even say I approve of it! It was performed with intensity, but more of an on the fly type of workout, rather than something specifically structured and planned beforehand.

Naturally, everyone reading this should be aware that I only sampled this product on one day for one arms workout and I could make a more detailed evaluation after longer use of the product. But I can also say that I felt the results immediately and feel that I am in a position to review BSN NO XPLODE with accuracy. I can say this for absolute certain about NO XPLODE: it works. Simply put, it made my pump a lot better than it would have been had I not taken it. I had a pump which was above average even though my nutrition was not. I also felt more pumped (no pun intended) to have a hard workout and lift heavy weights. Now I think that may have just been a placebo effect, but I won't rule out that it was the actual effect of the product working. As far as gains in mass while using NO XPLODE, I really couldn't make a proper assessment of that after only using it for one day, but I can say with great certainty that it helped me sustain a better and longer lasting pump than not using any supplement at all. To me, a great pump is the best reason to go to the gym as per the Rick Wayne quote above! I can say that I would definitely use this product because it would make my pumps that much better and as a result, make my motivation to workout hard and frequently that much stronger. If you are looking for a product for these purposes, BSN NO XPLODE comes highly recommded. A+
