Over the last few years we have seen a massive influx in the usage of pre-workout formulas, by a huge range of athletes to take it to the next level. Not many supplements actually create a ‘different feeling’ physically and mentally the second they are taken, well pre-workout formulas do! Personally I feel this is partly the reason as to why they are so popular, and the other half if because they WORK so well! BSN No-Xplode AVPT is certainly one of the most popular, if not the most popular supplement in this category! In the past when I have used it, I thought it was a great supplement, and more importantly so does 8 times Mr. Olympia, Ronnie Coleman! I’m sure he knows a thing or two about the best supplements. Just in case you guys are thinking ‘I don’t want to look like a Mr. Olympia’ there are also top pro MMA fighters who use BSN supplements as well, especially No-Xplode AVPT! Let’s take a look as to how BSN have claimed No.1 spot in the pre-workout formula category!
In short, No-Xplode AVPT contains a mammoth concoction of stimulating ingredients, which have the ability to have a dramatic effect on your energy levels, as well as your recovery levels. BSN’s No-Xplode Proprietary Blend contains AKG (L-Arginine Alpha-ketogluerate), L-Citruline Malate, L-Citruline AKG, L-Histidine AKG and finally RC-Nos. Now all I have done there is list the main ingredients in the vasodilation component of No-Xplode AVPT, but now I will explain exactly why they can be so effective.
L-Arginine features in almost every pre-workout formula because it is a ‘vasodilator’ which means to open up your capillary network, thus increasing the blood flow into the muscle cell. As a result, your energy levels should increase with the addition of extra oxygenated blood. The rate of nutrient assimilation should also improve for you, again, because there will be a higher number of nutrients available in the muscle cell. L-Arginine is able to achieve this by acting as a precursor to nitric oxide in the blood. Therefore by bonding L-Arginine with AKG, this action is enhanced which in turn increases the level of nitric oxide in the blood. You could say that in simple terms, L-Arginine AKG is the ‘daddy’ of vasodilators!
Next you have L-Citruline Malate and L-Citruline Malate AKG, which are precursors to Arginine. As a result this enhances the level of nitric oxide synthesis in the blood, and, you guessed it by bonding L-Citruline Malate with AKG the overall effect is enhanced. Another key point to note here is that these ingredients do also help support the production of ATP by affecting the process in the Kreb’s cycle, but the explanation is beyond the scope or requirements of this article.
L-Histidine AKG is known to also act as a vasodilator in the body, and of course, the bonding of AKG in this instance also enhances the effects of this amino acid. Are you beginning to notice a developing picture here, AKG bonded ingredients in pre-workout formulas are superior!!!
Finally, RC-Nos which is a exclusive BSN matrix is formulated to stimulate your nitric oxide levels in the blood. However, more interestingly it is also able to help counter act the vasoconstricting effects, which Caffeine can have on your blood vessels.
The next main part of BSN No-Xplode AVPT is the volumising aspect of this supplement. BSN created a matrix known as Advanced Volumising and Performance Technology (AVPT) containing a blend of 4 high end Creatines. This blend ensures that your ATP production increases, which enhances your anaerobic endurance, energy levels, recovery time and it also helps increase your strength. ATP production is heavily linked to strength and power, as it is in fact your first energy system for anaerobic exercise! Therefore by having this matrix in BSN No-Xplode AVPT you are going to make some great gains! You will also notice your muscles looking ‘fuller’ and ‘rounder’ simply because this matrix of ingredients will draw water into your muscle cells!
Whilst there is even greater depth to BSN No-Xplode AVPT I feel that you should have a sufficient understanding of the many benefits of this supplement by now! Make no mistake about it, this incredible supplement has the capacity to deliver skin ripping muscle pumps, and take your intensity to the next level! This comes highly recommended from myself as well as many elite athletes!
