Greg, and other supplement guru's, INSIDE PLEASE!

I need some pre-workout energy. I work all day and by the time I get off I find sometimes my energy level does not let me push as hard as I am capable of. I have tried N.O.Explode (but I found that I built a tolerance to it quickly). As of lately I have just been drinking half of a Redline and that seems to work decently, but I'd rather find another alternative.

I'd really like to find a good (economical) solution that I wont become immune to after 2 or 3 weeks. I have looked around on lockoutforums, but there are quite a few options to choose from and I dont want another N.O. Explode.

Thanks in advance!

I'd take a more serious look at your diet if you are consistently having problems finding energy. Any supplement will be subject to tolerance.

The problem is that you are going to build a tolerance to any "energy" supplement.

Do like raven said and check your diet. Are you eating too many carbs? Too few? Are you getting enough calories spread throughout the day? All these things are what I would look at first.

I eat 6-7 evenly spaced meals. I work all day, so my schedule usually goes something like this.

6am- 10oz skim milk, 1 scoop muscle milk, 3/4 cup (dry) oatmeal, a little splenda, shakin in a shaker. 4 caps of fish oil and a max muscle multi-vitamin pack.

9am- protein bar 19g protein, 26g carb, 7g fat

10:30am- 12oz chicken breast on wheat bread

12pm- lunch, usually chicken or turkey with mashed potatos and some noodles or something (this is at a resturant near my work)

3pm- protein bar like above or a bag of beef jerky

5:40- 1/2 redline, 5g creatine

6pm- work out

7:15pm- 10oz skim milk, 2 scoop muscle milk, 50g carbo gain (maltodextrin), 5g creatine, 5g glutamine, 1 scoop bcaa.

8:30- 12oz chicken breast with can of green beans

10:00- 12oz chicken breast and 2 caps of lean dreams


I am not falling asleep in the gym, but I have been doing the DC training and have found that it helps to have a little upper before I hit it.

Greg, you threw in a sample of the N.O. Shotgun with my last order, I liked it but was afraid it'd be like N.O.Explod, I'll probably end up puttin an order in with you for the Shotgun, got it in stock?

Also, anyone want to add their two cents on my dietary schedule considering I am going for a clean bulk with DC training.

Shotgun is stronger than NO Explode for sure. You'll build a tolerance for all of them over time.
I've built one, however if i dont use a preworkout i drag ass in the gym.

I have it in stock and just got the new black cherry. I havent tried that one yet...

You could also get blood work and other analysis done to see if there's a reason for your fatigue.

Secondly, a workout partner can help push you through alot of your fatigue issues. I am constantly tired due to terrible sleep patterns (3-4 hours often times) which is not good for working out, but when I have a workout partner to motivate me i can push through the fatigue. Additionally, Working on your focus can help alot as well. In powerlifting, we were taught focus to a high extent. When you can key out all feelings and surroundings, focus on nothing but the weight you're about to dominate, then your lack of energy starts to become arbitrary. I'm sure Greg can attest to this.

Side note: Greg the products came in, thanks for the great service once again!

IMO your diet is a little off. Althought you are eating somewhat clean, your not getting in enough calories before your work out.

Have you every given a 'green drink' a try? They are a great way to increase your energy output the natural way. This is the one I use. I take it twice a day and on the days that I forget I do notice the difference.

Have you had the new version or the Black Cherry? They just changed it a bit. Still tart but not as bad.

Most either love it or hate it, the new one that is...

Two scoops of N.O. Explode with about eight ounces of Redbull should about do it!

If you have grown to tolerate it Greg, cycle off of it for 1 month and let your body detox it. Then when you get back on it it will effect you like it used to. You know better Im sure but you have to do supp's in cycles just as you do pro hormones.
