    That taste doh! Ahh man, it was a killer to take.. and I can usually handle most supps. It had a super potent spicy taste to it so I wasn't a fan. Felt like actual battery acid going down the pipe! The pump was avg. and I had the meanest tingles in my face and neck. Wouldn't really recommend to anyone. Flavour:WaterMelon

    Not impressed with 2.0. I thought i'd give BSN the benefit of the doubt being one of the pioneers in pre-workout formulas. But with so many competitors in the space today, NO-XPLODE is yet to raise their game or standard. They've failed to capitalise on people being fed up with proprietary blends, and the formula doesn't feel like its changed much. Don't buy!

    Taste; Can't really say much as it's a multi-vitamin, but no bitter aftertaste as I have had some in the past. Effectiveness: I always take multi-vitamins if i'm in a calorie deficit, seeing as I get sick easily when i'm cutting, so I need to pack as much punch as possible with immune system. So, if I take this, i'll usually take fish oils, etc. so I can actually measure my body response to a stack. It's usually the same product line stack too. So I was impressed, no illness with my cut, and I wasn't as worn-down as I get when i'm dropping weight mid winter. Overall: A fan of optimum nutritions line. Aside from the B.S. marketing a lot of sup companies make, they've done a pretty good job at providing quality products. You do pay for the quality you get, so from my experience, I tend to trust these companies to do the job effectively. That being said, I do think that other companies in this space do just as good a job in bring out quality products. Bottomline: Buy if you have the cash and you're looking for a top of the line type vitamin.

    Was lucky enough to get this as a gift. Definitely excited to try this stuff out as i've heard and researched, Not a big fan of the concentrated products, it gives a huge hit of caffeine, but the actual dosages for active ingredients is lacking. If you can handle have a pretty large scoop, its no big deal. But the fact that it has no proprietary blends meant that I was getting quality ingredients. DOWNSIDE: I didn't get the stated 20 scoops in the jar, I got about 17.5. The cost is huge also,

    I used this in conjunction with a high calorie diet while I was trying to pack on some quality size. Being a hard gainer, even eating a tonne of food didn't do too much for me. So with O.N. Serious Mass I was blown away by the quality of the calories. Most weight gainers i've tried previously have an extremely sugary taste, or have an odd paste taste. O.N. was leaning more towards the paste side, but still I was able to enjoy the flavour. It might just be that I don't like to use too much liquid, i'd rather a smaller, thicker drink, than a smooth, but twice as much gainer. Along with the extra calories I was trying to consume with my high activity job at the time, it just made for easy calories when it wasn't viable to sit down for 30 min and eat a protein/carbs/fats meal. I'd definitely recommend this to anybody trying to put some size on without having to drink pure sugar for 20 minutes.

    Stats: 6'4"/106kg/8 years training exp. This is my go-to creatine/BCAA. It has an odd cheese-type after-taste. But when I was in a bulking phase, I gained close to 1.5kg of muscle mass over 5 weeks. With training so long, it felt like I was experiencing newbie gains. I was smashing back that grape like it was nothing. Would definitely recommend to others.

    If you're into eating a full meal of vitamins and tablets! But, on the plus side? My urine turned fluorescent yellow from the minerals and vitamins intake. But some of those pills are horse sized. Does it do the job? Hell yeah!

    Some tasty protein. My wife likes it, and she doesn't like many supplements due to the flavour profile. But its about the effects right? I saw quality gains, and it curbed the usual sugar cravings I get when i'm mid-way through a deep cutting phase. I would recommend this as a good protein when you're wanting a great flavour, and good progress towards your health goals.

    I recommend this. My ratings aren't super high on this, but it gets the job done. Exactly as the name suggests. Gives a good energy burst, mental focus was pretty good. I train early in the morning so I found that this did pretty well as an energy burst. I did have to stack other sups with this so I could achieve slight increase in gains. But overall, pretty good energy product from Gaspari.
