Xyience NOX-CG3 Review By Marc Skaf
All good things come in pairs, or so they say, however Xyience proves that saying wrong because this stuff is the great and it's three main
ingredients come triple-fold. Three types of Arginine(NO) L-Arginine HCI, L-Arginine Ketoisocaproate, L-Argining Alpha-Ketogutarate; three
creatines: Creatine Ester, Creatine Malate, and creatine Alpha-Ketogutarate; Three different types of glutamine: l-glutamine, N-Acetyl-L-Glutamine,
and L-Glutamine Alpha-Ketogutarate. NOX-CG3 is a pre-workout drink, meaning it is going to get you pumped and energized for any hardcore workout!
It comes in 3 flavours, Blue Raspberry, Lemon-Lime and Fruit Punch. I was fortunate enough to try Blue Raspberry and Lemon-Lime.
The first week:
First day of trying this stuff I was really excited to get to the gym, I knew I was going to feel alot different using this stuff, and that was exciting.
I opened the space age container this stuff come in and a burst of bubble gum smell hit me as soon as I opened it, there it was in a neat little zipped up
package, as if it was blow. I took the recommended 2 scoops, didn't go over, and didn't go under, with 10 oz of water. Unfortunately the stuff doesn't taste
as great as it smells but it certainly isn't the hardest drink to stomach. I continued my workout that day with bi's and tri's, immediately after the first
set of standing alternate dumbell raises my veins were popping, and that's a rare thing to see with my hairy arms. After the second set I had a great pump
going that lasted from the first exercise to the last exercise. Then it all started again with triceps, got a pump right away doing dips, then weighted dips
and the exercises that followed kept the pump very much maximized. It wasn't anything to crazy, I wasn't ever scared that my muscles were going to tear out
of my skin but it was more powerful then the pumps I usually get at the gym when working out arms. Keep this in mind too, I am on a low carb diet and basically
this stuff is the only thing fueling my pumps.
The next day I didn't get to the gym late and was worried to see if I would still have the energy to workout. That morning I had gone for a 40 minute run followed
by an 8 hour shift at work, so by the time I got to the gym, I was exhausted. However, I had a secret weapon, I took the stuff and i proceeded to have a great workout
with even more intensity then if I hadn't gone for that run or worked that day, and I was working out legs too, managed to squat 315lbs for 8 reps, which I haven't been
able to do for awhile.
At the end of the week I had a chest workout on this stuff, my training partner wasn't prepared for the amounts of sets I was about to do. We started with flat
benchpress, worked up to 225lbs after 4 sets for 6 reps, then went on to do incline benchpress, 4 sets of 135lbs, by this time my chest was ready to blow up.
Then we moved on to some of the hammer strength machines for wide chest and incline, and finished it with some cable flyes. 20 sets in total and I was still ready
for more, but enough is enough. Finished the workout with some abs and that was it, another great workout.
Same great pumps when working out and the taste is barely noticeable anymore. Worked out legs and had a great pump in my quads after squats! Was able to go heavy
with up to 3 plates a side and that was after a 30 min run! It kept my energy level up, finished with leg presses and leg extensions, then some hams and calves with no problems.
Week two was pretty much consistent with week 1. The effects never really dulled and the pumps were consistent.
Usually while working out biceps I lack much of a pump, but i noticed I was more vascular and had a huge pipeline vein coming down my bicep, it seemed bigger than before (not sure if it
was just my ego or the xyience). Was able to do 60lb curls for 4 reps when before I could only do 50s. At some points I had to put down the weights cause of the pump I got in my forearms
while doing standing alternate dumbell curls.
Triceps was exceptional too. Heavy skull crushers superset with tricep pulldowns, it felt great. I don't want to hype this stuff up too much, but I had to keep my elbows bent
for a few secodns after the sets cause of the pump.
Since I was taking 2 scoops the supply only lasted half the week, boy was I sad when it was gone. I used some before going on runs of off days too so it went down pretty fast.
I highly suggest this stuff to anyone who wants a great pre-workout drink! I am not just saying that, this stuff works! I asked some friends to try it as well and all of them got
good pumps from it as well. This is the first pump inducing product I have ever taken so the bar is set pretty high for the other guys.
The taste: This stuff smelt great but tasted kind of bad. Then again it isnt loaded with sweeteners and the such so you can expect that. The Blue-Raspberry was the better of the two
flavours I tried, the other being Lemon-Lime which just takes like shit. But the Blue stuff was ok.
The cannister it comes in is pretty neat, I think I might keep it for random stuff, but it is packed in a plastic bag and after dripping some moisture into it the stuff got really
messy and I walked around with blue hands at the gym.
Would I recommend this product? Yes, to anyone who can afford a great pre-workout drink. I was able to put on at least 1lb of LBM and cut up a bit too. Of course I was doing cardio
and on a 1800-2000 calorie diet so anyone not carb or calorie restricted would probably see better results. Even with the low carbs the pumps were still great.
