Suppliment stack
 
Im thinking of trying a new suppliement combo. My goal is to gain as much strength and muscle endurance as possible without gaining to much weight or bulking up to much. Im a 178 lb 6"2 endomorph, i train 3/4 times a week and i currently take a basic whey protein shake and glutamine pills everyday.

Im thinking of buying Xyience NOXCG3 (im a victim of shameless marketing) and taking this with Maximuscle Cyclone or another shake that just gives me alot of high quality protein per serving. Im also goin to keep takin my Glutamine.

Do you think its a good combination and will i be getting to much glutamine if i take the pills and NOXCG3 + Cyclone.

what exactly is Xyience? ive heard it alot but not really looked into it.
atm i take maximuscle promax extreme, and cyclone as well (3 shakes a day total)

and a multi vitamin tablet in the morning

Xyience is a supplement for serious athletes. NOXCG3 is supposed to give u a massive energy boost during workouts and greatly help increase your strength and recovery time. Its basically perfect for MMA fighters as it is made for MMA goals (strength, power, explosivness and endurance) hence why they are promoting it through the UFC. Im gunna giv it a go and see how much i improve when taking it.

ok sounds cool, youll have to let me know how you get on with it

If youre looking for an energy boost and to not gain much weight (under 5lb) a creatine with caffeine is what you would want to stack a protein shake with. Dont go for shakes alot of sugars and calories if youre looking to keep your weight within a tight amount. I would recommend getting some monohydrate creatine and adding a scoop (maybe 2 max) into it.
If youre thinking or have already ordered/bought the noxcg3 im sure theyll recommend you use it before working out and maybe after. Tell me how you like the product, Ive looked into it but havent found out much.

NOXCG3 is just an overpriced creatine that isnt even proven to work better than normal creatine mono-hydrate.

My opinion would be to just keep taking your glutamine and whey protein and then also pick up some creatine monohydrate and mix that in with some grape juice and drink that. Should do you fine, just follow the directions and load etc. If you want a lot of creatine info visit Bodybuilding.com - The Future Of Bodybuilding! Huge Bodybuilding Site.

That is a great webiste, lots of articles and info, I used it to find out some things and still do to this day. Lots of useful things.
Yeah like I said I dont know much about noxcg3 and we agreed on the monohydrate, I used to mix it with orange juice. Grape works well because of the insulin spike.

Their has been debate on mono and cee creatine. From my personal experience and alot of other supplement users, mono gives you the bloated look and a decent amount of water retention. Also with the mono they suggest you do a load cycle with it. I think it is a waste to do a "load cycle". While the cee ( creatine ethyl ester) you dont have to load and it doesnt give you the bloated feeling. I would try either BSN CELLMASS or Controlled labs greenbulge. they are both cee creatine. Also if your looking for a pre-workout supplment i would go with BSN NO-explode. Believe the hype of this product. It worked excellent for me. And Whey protien obvouisly. Hope that helps you some.

PLEASE DO NOT BUY ANY XYIENCE Products!!!! They are overpriced and aren't any better compared to N.O. Xplode or Superpump250. Don't let the commercials and gimmicks fool you. Xyience is a corrupt company.

This is my pre workout stack

BSN N.O. Xplode 3 scoops
4 BCAA Caps
1 Serving of Gakic

Post Workout Stack

6 BCAA caps
1 Serving of BSN Cell Mass
1 Serving of Cytosport Muscle Milk mixed with 4 scoops of Cytosport Cytocarb 2

Ill believe you on the NOxplode and it working but Im just saying Ive heard mixed reviews and when I ask people about NO they tell me to take something else, cant remember the name but will edit when I find it :D.
As far as creatine is concerned I LOVE and i mean love PRIDE - Retaliate, its CEE and I take it pre and post. I also take Whey protein post. I love the fact of you just use it, no loading phase and that bull.
