Pre-workouts are great supplements which can help to improve your performance, motivation and energy whilst working out.
Some help to set new personal bests, whereas others are better on the endurance side.
We’re testing and reviewing numerous pre-workout supplements to find the best for 2018.
Our reviewers have tried N.O. Xplode Pre-Workout Igniter by BSN in the blue raspberry flavour.
They have taken the supplement before their gym session and recorded their experiences and opinions.
BSN’s N.O. Xplode claims to deliver intense focus, enhanced endurance, improved concentration and increased alertness. It states it is a Preworkout for all athletes and describes itself as a concentrated formula designed to push your performance.
This pre-workout has high expectations. But does it really do all these things?
We’ve had 3 reviewers try this product out, let’s see what the fuss is about…
This tub is red plastic which is transparent. It has a red metallic hologram label. It is a simple design but looks professional, especially when lights shine on the tub.The lid is silver with BSN embossed on the top.
The materials used don’t look cheap, the packaging looks like it can deliver.
The tub itself is quite large for the serving size and is only half full. BSN could have definitely produced a smaller tub which would help with storing the supplement.

Taste and Mixability
N.O. Xplode mixed really well, just by stirring for a minute or so. The texture was completely smooth with no residue or lumps.
The taste wasn’t too bad, I’ve had worse tasting preworkouts. It was drinkable which is all that counts.
Taste, in my opinion, isn’t a priority when it comes to pre workout supplements.
So, it doesn’t bother me when they don’t taste nice.
This preworkout was probably one of the best I’ve tried. In terms of the energy boost, It was noticeable and consistent throughout my workout.
I still had the energy boost after my workout, so I probably wouldn,t recommend drinking this in the evening because you might not sleep very well.
The energy boost works nicely with motivation and increased focus. I was so ready and motivated for my workout.
I pushed to new personal records in some areas and managed to get extra reps out, whereas normally I wouldn’t be able to.
My endurance and stamina were enhanced in all areas, especially when doing my cardio and HIIT sessions.
It felt like there was nothing stopping me. I was so determined to push myself and reach my goals.
Personally, N.O. Xplode was the best preworkout for me. It just kept giving.
I would give N.O. Xplode Pre-Workout Igniter and overall rating of 9/10.
The only side effect I experienced from this supplement, was a tingling feeling my hands.
This is completely normal and is a temporary side effect from the beta-alanine.
I like this feeling, it helps me to understand when the pre-workout has kicked in.

Overall Rating – 8.5/10
Reviewer Jason – Male, 26
Taste 7.5/10 – “It tasted alright but it got stronger towards the end of the drink. The taste accumulated like a manageable curry. It was easy to drink though and I didn’t have to force it down me.”
Texture 9.5/10 – “Possibly the smoothest preworkout I’ve had. I had one small lump which I will admit was from my stirring effort.”
Energy Boost 9.5/10 – “I’ve recently been working out without the PWOs, and the difference was noticeable. Set personal PB’s on pretty much every exercise I did and push to fail on most.”
Focus 9.5/10 – “The workout was probably at the highest level of effort of all of them so far. I was willing to push myself more and try harder than normal.”
Endurance 9/10 – “As mentioned, the workout was at a higher level than previous workouts have been. This was consistent throughout the work with no dip in effort towards the end. In fact, the last exercise was really good, with maximum effort being used pushing through pain doing drop sets.”
Tingle – “I felt a little tingle on my hands and face, but I liked it.”
Burn – “None”
Shakes – “None”
Crash – “Quite the opposite… I was awake until 2.30am”
Other Notes -”I’m not sure if it’s the fact that I haven’t used a PWO for a little while, but I really felt the effects of this one. Others I have wondered if it’s the PWO or me just trying harder, but this one was definitely having a positive impact throughout.”
Overall Rating – 9.5/10
