This No Xplode review tries to find out why no xplode is one of the most popular pre workout supplements on the market.
I’ve never though much of the powder version so I wanted to see if the igniter shots were any better.
I managed to get hold of a single sample at the 2011 BodyPower Expo and I decided to put it to the test and see how it affected my workout for better or for worse.
Mixability – 5/5
Mixability isn’t a notable category of this no xplode review as the igniter shot isn’t powder based so there are no mixability issues.
Taste – 3/5
Upon popping the cap you’re greeted by the luminous green liquid of the green apple flavour which smells like appletiser.The smell is good and I was keen to taste it.
The taste is very sweet and it tastes like sour apple, the aftertaste is very artificial and it makes your mouth salivate a lot.
The workout I used when completing this no xplode review was a back workout where I started with deadlifts and then did pull ups and rows.
Side Effects – 5/5
No side effects.
Energy – 3/5
For an energy shot, energy should be a key focal point for this no xplode review, however, unfortunately the igniter shot never lives up to its billing.
The energy was clean and I definitely had more energy than before the workout but in all honesty it left me disappointed. For a product long marketed as a best-seller in the pre-workout category I expected far more.
Focus/Drive – 2/5
When selecting a pre-workout product I specifically look for improved focus and energy. I was expecting far better than I got and the focus and drive I got from this product was disappointing.
There was no tunnel vision like focus I get with other products like white flood and jack3d and I didn’t feel especially motivated to workout.
Pumps/Vascularity – 3/5
The pumps from this product were good but again nothing special, my muscles felt a little tighter than normal and they stayed pumped for a few hours post workout.
Strength/Endurance – 4/5
The gym was hot on the day of the no xplode review as the AC had broke but I still managed to set a new personal best in the deadlift.
With that said, I didn’t particularly credit this to no xplode as I’d been consistently getting stronger week-on-week prior to testing no xplode anyway.
Price/Value – 1/5
The igniter shot costs an astronomical amount for 12 bottles, average purchase price comes out at:
Ingredients – 2/5
The ingredients are decent enough and feature common free workout supplement ingredients such as arginine alpha ketoglutarate (AAKG) , L Tyrosine, Caffeine, Taurine.

Whilst the ingredients may be decent enough the dosing was far too low for my liking as I felt nothing.
Overall – 2/5
The summary of this BSN No Xplode review is that this product is an overpriced, poorly performing pre workout supplement. You pay for the convenience of the energy shot bottle format which allows you to take it anyway but you get little else in return.
I don’t recommend this product to anyone.
