NO Xplode by BSN – Consumed on an empty stomach

Website design By BotEap.comI’m currently on NO Xplode and notice the label says to take it on an empty stomach…is it okay if I take it with my pre-workout meal which is a protein shake?

Website design By BotEap.comOk… I think it’s about time I addressed this problem before it gets out of hand. It is NOT necessary to consume Xplode on an EMPTY STOMACH, which means that the last meal must be at least 2 hours before. So NO, it is not okay to consume it alongside your protein shake as it will only reduce its effectiveness.

Website design By BotEap.comI have lost count of the emails, text messages and phone calls I have received in the last few weeks from my friends who need help with BSN supplements, NOT Xplode in particular. For all of you who have NOT had Xplode, it actually EXPLODES in your face while mixing…didn’t I tell you NOT to shake it in the shaker, but to STIR it with a spoon? For those of you whose Xplode stained your clothes, blew up his gym locker, wrecked his kitchen, and blew up his car (well…this was me…lol)- honestly, you guys are a fun bunch. .

Website design By BotEap.comWell, I must admit, it can be tricky for those of you who don’t time or monitor your meals as closely as I do. For example, my meals are always about 3 hours apart, and I only drink large amounts of water 2 hours after each meal because it takes about 2 hours for your stomach contents to cleanse, petty things that I sometimes take very seriously. .

Website design By BotEap.comI have a friend who wakes up in the morning, has 2 slices of bread, and heads to the gym right away to work out…how is he supposed to fit NO Xplode into his schedule, because he needs to consume it on an empty stomach? That was exactly the question he asked me when he started supplementing with Xplode.

Website design By BotEap.comThen there are those of you who eat when you’re hungry and sometimes skip meals altogether, or just grab a quick bite to fill up before your workout…waste on an empty stomach before your workout?

Website design By BotEap.comA little tricky, but it just takes a little getting used to.

Website design By BotEap.comFor the past few months, I have also been consuming a protein shake before my workouts. There is scientific research suggesting that taking protein before lifting weights may be as important, if not more so, than taking it immediately afterwards.

Website design By BotEap.comWhen you lift weights, blood flow to your working muscles increases dramatically and this helps to ‘push’ any circulating amino acids into the muscle cells. But you need to have enough amino acids circulating in your blood to optimize this effect. This is why you should eat some protein (protein is made of amino acids) before you exercise. This will support faster muscle growth…and who doesn’t want that?

Website design By BotEap.comOk, so for those of you who are a little confused and find it hard to manipulate your time, take your protein shakes AND supplement with NO-Xplode, here’s what I suggest you do:

Website design By 60 minutes before your workout, drink your protein shake, mixed with water and not milk. (milk takes longer to digest and you want it digested quickly to make room for Xplode).

Website design By 30 minutes after your protein shake, take your NO-Xplode (However many tablespoons you normally need). Your pre-workout protein shake will have cleared/digested as it’s just liquid, and it won’t take up to 2 hours like a normal meal to achieve an empty stomach.

Cellmass is BSN’s post-workout creatine supplement to replace creatine stores lost during training, speed up recovery, volumize muscle cells, increase muscle density/hardness and lots of other fun stuff.
