    Claims

    There's no need to stack a nitric oxide product with a creatine product. Get Diesel NOS Ether utilizes a Kre-Alkalyn Creatine combination, a proven strength and power builder. It slso increases endurance and lean muscle mass. For those of you who are not aware, in 2005 NOS Ether powder was the #1 selling Kre-Alkalyn containing formulations at several top internet retailers. Combine that with NOS Ether being heralded as the most effective creatine based strength and power builder they have ever used by consumers helps to understand why NOS Ether is in a class of its own. The strength, the power, the pumps the endurance, the lean muscle mass gains are all real; this is NOS Ether now in convenient capsule form!

    The "Triple Threat Matrix" is a proprietary combination of three ingredients stacked to maximize the delivery of three key nutrients involved in increasing strength and lean muscle mass. The three key ingredients are Vanadium (as Amino Acid Chelate), Chromium (as Polynicotinate), and Banaba Leaf (standardized for corosolic acid). Our proprietary blend of these three ingredients produce a ridiculous increase in the uptake and storage of creatine, protein and carbohydrates in the muscle. ETHER will increase protein and carbohydrate storage so dramatically you will feel your muscles expanding creating pumped and hard muscles with every protein shake, weight gainer, or meal.

    Initial Thoughts

    i purchased this product based on chucks claims on it being more of a strength enhancing supplement.

    Final Thoughts

    After what seemed like 12 serves, the bottle was empty, i cant say i was overly impressed, didnt get any pre-workout energy from this. pumps were ok, but pumps come naturally so i wasnt really looking for that. strength was ok, got a few extra sets here and there, again nothing to amazing.

    i did notice an increase in thirst while using this product, as with all chuck's products, water seems to be the key, as you would expect with most supps on the market these days.

    i think due to the fact im not a "power athlete" as such i didnt really get to utilize the full effect of Nos Ether.

    Overall Rating

    In my opinion, this product seemed weak and underdosed compared to its powdered brother (no longer available)

    i think chuck has realised this, with the release of Nos Purcursor hopefully better result will be acheived.

    i cant give this a high rating, it didnt do much for me, but for the avid powerlifter, the nos stack (purcursor + Ether) may be up your alley.

    Claims

    Every serious bodybuilder knows the awesome feeling of training in the zone. Banging off reps with a serious stack of plates on the bar, your muscles burning with a pump so intense you swear your skin is going to rip. Yeah, being in the zone is a big time thrill, and for sure helps you build freakish muscle. But, the zone is nothing without the "X". The zone is how you train. The "X-Factor" is how you grow!

    ...up to 15 lbs of muscle after just one 50 day cycle!
    If a powerful physique is what you want, then nothing is more important than the "X". What we are talking about is revolutionary. It is the single greatest anabolic discovery of the new century. It will take your body to a new dimension, with more muscle, reduced body fat, and freaky pumps that will shred your clothes into a pile of threads. We are talking about a serious discovery made by one of the only men on the planet capable of such a powerful discovery. A man so dedicated to anabolic research that he literally wrote the book on it. We are talking about William Llewellyn, performance-enhancement scientist, ANABOLICS 2000 - 2005 author, and CEO of Molecular Nutrition. He is no lightweight when it comes to anabolic research and discovering new muscle building substances. Holder of several U.S. Patents on anabolic compounds, Llewellyn adds his newest and greatest anabolic discovery to the list. - "X-Factor"

    Final Thoughts

    I really had High hopes on this product considering the price and the high praise it gets on some forums, i though id give it a shot.

    the first week was nothing special, until i jumped on the scales, i was up a few pounds, which i though was either carb loading, sodium or maybe just full bowels.

    i never got any severe doms/soreness/joint pains above the norm.

    I used fishoil, and high amounts of fat on cycle, i got sick of reading countless threads about what not to eat blah blah. Phosphate said there may well be some synergy with the fishoil so i gave it a shot.

    i never got extreme pumps, i never do even with so-called pump products, i did however get the muscle fullness i was expecting.

    after 50 days i went from 215lbs to about 227lbs + a few % increase in BF. i cant complain, im the heaviest and strongest i have ever been and with in inclusion of the fish oil + high fat diet (reletivly low carb) i think the product worked well.

    Overall Rating

    Top Product, pricey, but in the end worth it.

    IMO unless you have Solid training, and a descent diet this may be a waste.

    not a newb supp.

    Initial Thoughts

    I've always wanted to try Storm/Shock Therapy together as a stack, but freight was just unacceptable, so this seemed the next best thing

    I like the idea of Animal Products, lil' baggies look cool and are very convenient for those on the run.

    First use, i was off caffeine for a good week beforehand and was hoping for a nice energy boost, i took it 30 mins preworkout, energy didnt hit me straight away, in fact at the end of my workout i started to get kinda jittery, then WIRED!

    Direction Of Use

    Directions: Take 1 pack 30 minutes prior to training, preferably on an empty stomach.

    i only used this product on training days, and TCM on off days and post workout.

    Final Thoughts

    wasnt as impressive as powdered energy/creatine/pump drinks think - Energized Expand, but still an enjoyable product.

    minor strength gains, descent pumps, and no messy drinks are all a "+" in my book.

    i would definatly recommend this product for those who hate mixing horrid drinks.

    Animal Pump + Flex + Pak would make great combo.

    Overall Rating

    Not the cheapest product, but a Great price for a capped product, considering what you get. the idea of a "energy" cap is awesome for those who workout late can just remove that from the stack. descent amount of creatine (i still would recommend a few grams of cee/TCM/mono post workout)

    Niiiice one fella's

    Taste

    Mixed with water, its not crash hot. 5/10

    Mixed with skim milk, this is better than ON's version. there is a definate minty taste to it, subtle chocolate flavour. 8/10

    if you have ever tried plain BCAA's you can kinda taste the bitter after-taste, but barley noticable.

    Mixability

    Mixed very well in water, few stirs in a glass and its done.

    i always use my mini hand held blender with milk, i like it thouroughly mixed, with a slight foam. might as well get it right huh. mixes easily, no fuss.

    Final Thoughts

    Cheap, Taste good, Nice profile + the fact it has an enzyme blend makes it perfect for those who have a slight sensativity to WPC. the 5 grams of BCAA per serve in very generous and makes this a great protein.

    IMO Dymatize > ON buy a long shot.

    Taste

    this aint no "healthy Protein Bar" its a damn snickers lol, i'm not a fan of bars at all, they are glorified candy bars as far as im concerned, however after reading the ingredient profile many times i came to the conclusion this bar rocks!!!

    taste awesome, the peanut is definatly present, the chocolate coating was a bit thin but had nice creamy taste to it and the caramel looked more like a sponge then a gooey cream.

    the only thing i didnt like is my jaw started to ache about half way through, very chewy.

    Final Thoughts

    the few bars i have tried have been very dissapointing, this one shines and i would definatly eat these on occasion, filled me up big time.

    i paid $5.95 for the damn thing (impulse buy at the counter of my local ripoff merchant supplement store) however a much better deal at bb.com store.

    Mixability

    2 scoops in 600ml of skim milk, my hand held blender......perfect
    no clumps, was not as thick as i would have imagined - shows me there isnt a whole lot of casein in the blend. smooth texture and very enjoyable.

    Taste

    In Australia we have a chocolate bar called a Bounty, im not sure if its available in the USA but this tasted exactly the same, almost a chemical/alchohol type coconut presence but still enjoyable. very weak chocolate taste, which made the coconut stand out that little bit extra. i can imagine my self getting sick of the flavour quickly however.

    Final Thoughts

    take note this is the old white container with the yellow lid version - i beleive the new version is in the noxplode/cellmass like containers - i bout this at 33% off RRP.......i shudder when i say i paid $60 bucks for it
    each scoop is marked at 35grams with only 20 grams of protein per scoop, lots of fillers etc i guess. 2 scoops a serve makes this good for 15 serves - taken at 3 serves a day as directed......and your broke rather quickly. solely a "treat" at this stage. i may one day tryout the cinnamon roll as it seems to get great reviews but that will have to wait.

    taste good, mixes well......price SUCKS!

Many individuals find it helpful to consume 1 serving per day everyday, and to consume a 2nd serving on days as needed.

    Initial Thoughts

    I have always been interested in Nootropic based supplements but havnt always had the greatest success. i have used BSL GO! which i though was fantastic, i have used Omega Sports Cerebral + Powerjolt and thought it was ok for a capped product and most recently Yellow Nuephoria now dont get me wrong all this products gave me focus, just not on doing gym, more like reading or watching a boring movie and not switching channel kinda thing nothing has really givin me that unbreakable mind mucle connection everyone dreams of.

    Taste

    This tasted fantastic, i have used the SNS CVM Extreme which is also in the pink lemonade but that fell far short of the flavour of focus XT.

    Mixibility

    a few quick stirs, nothing too difficult.

    Final Thoughts

    utterly amazed, this truelly is the king of nootropic formulas, better then BSL GO!....yeah i said it!!! BETTER! not by a lot but the focus was unreal. iknow everyone enjoys working the major muscle groups, your benchpress, military press and curls lol but this also allowed me to do the not so fun excersizes without losing any intensity wrist curls, calf raises, flys etc.

    Claims

    VPX NO-Shotgun fuels episodes of physical intensity to induce insane muscle pumps that can lead to muscle growth. The biochemical and physiological response to when combined with intense resistance training causes extra trauma to occur to trained muscle. Greater resistance to muscle results in significantly increased internal pressure (the pump)?€?And as you know, the better the pump the greater the trauma caused to muscle-tissue. The end result: increased ability to build larger muscle!

    NO-Shotgun is the first product of its kind to use a superior synergistic blend of effective compounds combined with a cutting-edge pharmaceutical delivery system that yields mind blowing, skin bursting effects, while additionally enhancing recovery and protein synthesis. Compounds such as Creatine (CEX), Arginine (AEX), Glutamine (GEX), Beta-Alanine (BAEX) and Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAAEX) that are each combined with Ethyl Ester (EX) technology to insure maximum absorption and uptake! The Ethyl Ester Compounds used in NO-Shotgun help these potent muscle building ingredients enter the bloodstream nearly 100% intact, as opposed to the same ingredients without EX technology that might only be absorbed at 15% to 40%. This highly advanced EX technology shuttles these NO-SHOTGUN?„? compounds across the muscle cell membrane where they can cause explosive muscle growth

    Initial Thoughts

    i was excited to use this product as its been a while since ive used a true preworkout energy/pump/focus product. i have used several in the past (No-xplode, superpump 250 and Aimal Pump for example).

    Taste

    i dont know what everyone is bitching about taste wise. taste like apple and cinnimon. its not a strong taste by any means but it covers up the ingredient nastiness very well.

    Mixibility

    1 x scoop in about 16 oz water, few stirs with a fork and she's ready to roll.

    Final Thoughts

    Consitent energy, not jittery and not very pronouncd, but enough to get my ass into gear. i feel a slight crashing effect towards end of workout.

    pumps are decent, im not a huge arginine responder but i found this to give me a little extra in the vascular dept as well.

    recovery has been good, i generally have 4 scoops of excel/day (equiv to 8 scoops extend) so i dont attribute all the recovery to no-shotgun.
