When Chris Ferguson and Scott James started BSN in the back of a small supplement store in Delray Beach Florida back in 2001, they probably had no idea how wildly popular the supplement company would end up becoming. Now a global force to be reckoned with, BSN is distributed in more than 120 countries around the world with product lines that cover protein, pre-workout/energy, and recovery/performance. Bright red packaging, unique product names like AMINOx, CELLMASS and SYNTHA-6 (Yes, the product names are actually supposed to be in all caps, no, we didn’t forget to turn off “caps lock”) and super popular sponsored athletes like Conor McGregor and Flex Lewis, have all contributed to the meteoric rise to fame that BSN has enjoyed these last few years.
One of the mainstays of the BSN product lineup, N.O.-XPLODE (it sure is hard to keep typing these names in ALL CAPS) was one of the first pre-workouts to hit the supplement market back in 2004 and it still enjoys a huge following to this day. 275mg of caffeine, 1.8g of beta alanine and a whole host of other powerful ingredients, help this product to give its users a boost in mental focus, alertness and endurance when it’s time to hit their favorite (or LEAST favorite) workout. A 30 serving container has a MSRP of $58.39, which breaks down to $1.95 per serving putting N.O.-XPLODE right smack dab in the middle of the road on cost. Unlike a lot of other pre-workouts, N.O.-XPLODE has some added vitamins and minerals, most notably 500IU of vitamin D, giving this product even more BANG for your buck. 13 different flavors (we really liked the cherry limeade) and even a caffeine free version, helps to provide enough variety to this product to fit most consumers needs. If you are looking to try a new pre-workout supplement, N.O.-XPLODE could be the option for you.
