NO3X 2.0 Pre Workout
NO3X 2.0 is a pre workout for extreme energy
After a boost in energy and concentration at the gym to smash out your workouts? Then you’d better get your hands on NO3X 2.0.
NO3X 2.0 is a reformulated version of our very popular pre workout NO3X. Compositionally, it's very close to the original with the main change being a switch from the banned Amp Citrate for Kigelia Africana Extract (Octodrine), which in our in-house testing provided a great kick in energy and mental focus.
The Octodrine is backed up with ever faithful Creatine Nitrate and Beta Alanine Nitrate for great pump and substantial performance gains through direct nitric action.
NO3X 2.0 is the real deal!
A maximum dose of 5.3g (one rounded scoop) is recommended. First time users should start with a half dose, many people will find this adequate.
NO3X 2.0 should be consumed directly before training. Consumption late in the evening may cause sleeplessness in sensitive people. NO3X 2.0 should be consumed with water, with a maximum of one serve per day in 600mls.
For best results, NO3X 2.0 should only be had on training days.
Creatine Monohydrate, Creatine Nitrate, Beta Alanine Nitrate, Flavouring, Citric Acid, Caffeine, Kigelia Africana Extract (Octodrine), Sweetener (Sucralose), Magnesium Stearate, Silica.
What is NO3X 2.0?
NO3X 2.0 is our new pre workout product which is a continued development of the current theme.
Bulk Nutrients has developed and revised a series of Pre-Workouts with very similar effects, with NO3X 2.0 being the most recent derivative. These products combine ingredients which increase vasodilation (commonly referred to as “muscular pumps” in the gym) with ingredients which provide maximum stimulatory effects.
How do “muscular pumps” benefit me in the gym?
Good question, and one which many people ask. The good news is that there is increasing research on nitrates (similar to those used in NO3X 2.0) and their actual benefits to performance. Nitrates, which increase blood flow and energy efficiency, also assist in increasing time to fatigue – which means training for longer before becoming tired. The main mechanism of action is understood to be by the reduction of oxygen usage, and VO2 max. Basically, the body can work to the same efficiently, while using less oxygen.
If all this is meaningless to you then you may get excited about the good ole “muscle pumps”. This is a term used by many to describe a fullness in their muscles while training! This feeling is generally enhanced when having nitrates and NO3X 2.0, will definitely “give ya da pumps”.
What benefits do stimulants have and which stimulants are in NO3X 2.0?
Stimulants are the most common (legal and illegal) performance enhancers available apart from hormonal compounds. The best known stimulant is caffeine, which is also commonly found in coffee and tea. While caffeine is an effective stimulant, there are several stimulants which are legal, but more powerful.
Stimulants can increase energy, assist with focus and have a dramatic effect on reducing perceived level of exertion, which is what causes a feeling of fatigue. Stimulants can assist acute strength needed for a single lift and increase muscular endurance, meaning you can train for longer, with a greater intensity.
The selected stimulant in NO3X 2.0 known as “Octodrine” or DMHA which is combined with caffeine, its most common chemical name is 2-methyl-6-aminoheptane or Dimethylhexylamine. It is structurally quite similar to a stimulant used in many pre-workouts known as Amp Citrate, (which was previously used in the first version of NO3X).
How does this product compare with NO4X?
While NO4X uses a combination of 4 different stimulants, the overall stimulant effect of NO3X 2.0 is stronger than NO4X. If you are looking for the most powerful pre workout product we have, NO3X 2.0 would be the best choice.
Should I use NO3X 2.0 or Pre Workout 101?
Pre Workout 101 is a product which uses a combination of performance based amino acids, in doses which are formulated around scientifically active doses. This is a product which is designed for ASADA (WADA) tested athletes who want a pre workout product they can take on a regular basis, and are most interested in gaining measurable benefits in performance.
NO3X 2.0 is developed around its effect on muscular pumps and its stimulant effect. Many uses are more concerned about how they perform in each gym session rather than gains over time. NO3X 2.0 has a much greater effect on how one “feels” in the gym, so it enhances each workout, more so than performance on an ongoing basis.
Is NO3X 2.0 OK for ASADA (WADA) tested athletes?
No, as of August 2016, “Octodrine” is scheduled as prohibited for “in competition” use.
It is allowable for “out of competition” use, however due to clearance times and the devastating effects a positive test can have on an athlete, we recommend those competing in ASADA tested sports, DO NOT consume NO3X 2.0.
For those that don’t compete in ASADA tested events this stimulant can provide many benefits in terms of training intensity, assisting you to train longer and harder than when not using the product.
Should I use NO3X 2.0 every workout?
One of the most important things about NO3X 2.0, or any stimulant is frequency of use. Unlike many compounds like Creatine, BCAA’s etc which work better when consumed regularly, stimulants lose their effectiveness when consumed too often.
This is due to the effect of tolerance, which means the effects will diminish over time. Considering this, NO3X 2.0 will be most effective is used a few times per week – rather than every workout. If you do decide to take NO3X every time you train, we would heavily advise that you minimise caffeine consumption (by way of energy drinks, coffee and tea) other times of the day.
Another way to increase effectiveness is by having periods (of at least 2 weeks) where products such as NO3X 2.0 are not used at all, which help to “clean out” your system from any tolerance.
Will NO3X 2.0 keep me up at night and interrupt my sleep?
This is a common side effect from stimulants and the combination of caffeine and Octodrine in NO3X 2.0 can have this effect. This seems to largely depend on individual’s sensitivity though, so affects some people more than others. If you suffer any effects like this, we wold recommend either a lower dose of NO3X 2.0, or having it earlier in the day. Usually people find it is best used 15 – 45 minutes before training
Can I take a larger dose of NO3X 2.0 than what is recommended?
The dose suggested for NO3X has been developed after considerable testing and trials. This dose is based on a man of average weight, with a typical (mild) stimulant tolerance. If you weigh less than average, and / or are female, we would suggest starting with a half sized dose.
If you are new to Pre Workouts it is almost always recommend that you start with a half sized dose, that way you can gauge your reaction sensibly.
If you have a large stimulant tolerance and / or are well above average weight, you may be tempted to consume more than a standard dose, and you may find benefit in doing so. We would recommend caution here though, while all ingredients are perfectly safe, if you require a larger dose it may well be that you are de sensitized to stimulants. In these cases, we would recommend that you reduced your caffeine consumption other times of the day, so your tolerance is reduced.

Sooo sad to see this one gone. NO3X 2.0 is the best pre I've used. The product is fast, effective and long lasting. It actually keeps me going all day and I no longer need a coffee. Great focus and great pump. It will be terribly missed once my bottles are gone.

First time user of a pre workout powder. Can't believe the extra energy i have during the workout. Recovery between sets is also phenomenal! Will definitely buy again.

I have never felt so focussed and so connected to my body until I tried this. Absolutely no crash afterwards and no issues sleeping (I workout in the afternoon / evening). Flavour is nice and not too sweet.
Posted by Leanne on Aug 22, 2017
Great product, gives you the edge that you need for a better workout
Posted by Carlos on Aug 04, 2017
Got good, clean energy hit no crash afterwards. Awesome with mental focus and a great taste.

Having bought both Flavours the watermelon Flavour is far better than lime however still bad, however the stimulants in it almost make it worth it
Posted by D. on Aug 03, 2017
Probably the best pre-workout i've had. My only complaint is that it's flavour is too strong like almost all of BNs products. Too sweet and/or too strong. God knows why they do it, their taste testers must live on chemical sweeteners and flavourings. But yeah, it's a great stimulant that doesn't make you feel jittery and the effects last a long time before gradually fading. Not the mad rush then crash feel. No need to overdose.

Mixes well, tastes average (lime flavor) but overall had a great workout on this product had alot of energy and focus and the dmha really helps you push your limits
Posted by Megs on Aug 03, 2017
Spend the time shaking/mixing this one up as the taste improves the longer you mix it. Definitely take it at least half an hour before training. But provides a good heat and that switched on function
