When NO Shotgun was on sale for Buy one get one free, i couldnt say no to that offer and went out and brought it,
mine was V2 type, so i dont know what Version you have,
out of a total rating of 10, i'd give it a 6/10 , it didnt really work well for me at all, and i find it hard to find a good NO supplement that has yet to work for me.
The original version tasted aweful but gave me killer pumps....i just got a jug of the V.3 which is the newest version. Tastes really good, gives good sustained energy during the workout but the pump isnt as crazy as the original version. I just started it though...i'll write up a review when im done. Im also trying Mass Xxplosion from Nutrex
Based on what you said, I'd say you're probably very tolerant to stimulants. Which in my point of view, is what an NO product is. The sustained energy is from the caffeine. Although I don't give this advice often, if it's not working, up the dose by a scoop max. Just because you've purchased it already.
Drink it 30-45min pre workout, in between your pre workout meal and the session. Straight arginine works well post workout.
The idea behind NO supplements is great, but the scale at which it works ratio to the cost isn't worth it. Focus on pre workout nutrition and you'll see much greater results than relying on a nitric oxide.
Hope this helps!
I workout at 8pm and I usually take the product around 7:30pm, thing is everytime I take it, I cant get any damn sleep, so in other words I dont really feel it in the Gym and I really feel it when I try to get some sleep, Im not using it anymore, is just not worth it, is there something else I can take that will work?
^^^right on the amino acids, is just that I'm almost done with the container so might as well finish them, here it is
Breakfast-1 scoop whey protein powder with 2 cups of milk
1 cup of Oatmeal
snack----usually I pick up a can of protein shake from vitamine shop with plenty of carbs and protein
Lunch----double meet, chicken breast footlong from subway
sanck----1 scoop whey protein powder with 2 cups of milk
2 cans of tune or a hamm sandwhich
Dinner----3 cups of rice
2 cups of beans
usually the meat at dinner is chiken, which I eat enough
Pre workout---1 serving of NO Shotgun with 10oz of water
Post workout---2 scoops of weight gainer with 2 cups of milk
1 apple or banana
usually some Yogurt
Im also using animal pack, I usually eat more and squeeze in more meals, basically whenever I get hungry. Thanks for the help
Your goal on a bulk, Idc how much of a hardgainer you are is to keep carbs complex throughout the entire days (excluding the morning and post workout). This means, remove the majority of your milk. The carb to protein ratio is heavily outweighed with carbs.
Complex carbs: sweet potatoes, whole grains (breads, pastas, oats, pancakes, waffles, granola, brown rice, etc.). Yogurt, fruit, and white rice are not good sources of carbs throughout the entire day.
Keep protein at 1g/lb of bodyweight. That's all that's needed. Carbs are protein sparing, if you're not growing, reevaluate your carbs and fats if need be.
Remove milk and the yogurt. Too slow digesting (lactose). Strive for 75-100g of white bread or dextrose/malto post workout. Also a whey would be more suitable here.
You also need a meal before bed if possible. 45min-1hr after your post workout meal is fine.
What's your total caloric intake?
Hope I helped man, take what I said constructively because dieting is 80% of bodybuilding.
